The Rock Says “Focus”!

Dwayne Johnson, AKA The Rock, knows something about the iron.

What’s his mantra?

“FOCUS!”

What can help your focus you ask? A healthy top performing mind!

What can help your mind perform at its peak you ask? Earth Grown Nutrients! Want more brain tingling info, read this Alpha Brain review. Get Onnit! You’ll see what I mean, and your brain will thank you for it.

Focus Equals Power

Physical strength on any given day comes down to a few different factors. You can’t always perform your max lift if all of your T’s aren’t crossed and I’s not dotted.

What do I mean? Have a look at this list:

  • Sleep
  • Nutrition
  • Fatigue

If you’re tired because you haven’t slept well.

If you’ve been eaten junk food.

If you’re over trained and exhausted.

If any of those, or any combination of those are true, then you’re not going to perform at your best. Fact.

So get you sleep in. Eat well. And actually rest on your rest days.

On top of that I’d like to recommend a special X-factor that’s been personally giving me the edge on focus. The focus to keep it together and blow through those PRs. It’s called CogniQ, a natural cerebral enhancer, a cocktail of goodness for your mind. Read reviews for CogniQ here and learn what it’s all about.

The 300 Workout Lean Like Leonidas

Have you seen the movie 300? If you’re a dude (and I think I can safely say you’re a dude if you’re ready this blog) I bet my life savings on the fact that you had serious ab envy.

Those guys had the most shredded abs. It was like they didn’t even need shields, they could just deflect arrow head, sword and spear tips with a little core flexing.

The 300 Workout

If had any ounce of curiosity in life, you’ve probably asked yourself. How the heck did they pull that off? Good lighting and some contour make-up might have helped, but really, you can only enhance appearances, not fully falsify them.

I’ve done some thorough research (a 2 second google search) and found gold. The answer to your dreams. To gaining the most important male physical asset. Rock hard 6 pack abs.

The 300 Workout

Here it is. The 300 Workout. Also known as the Spartan Workout.

You will need some surplus testosterone flowing through your system to make these crazy gains, so I recommend considering supplementation, like the awesome Testo XL.

 

Weight Lifting Supplementation

What are you thoughts on supplementation for the gym?

Anyone lifting a bar will usually have most of the following in their stack:

  • Protein powder
  • Pre-workout
  • BCAAs
  • Creatine
  • and maybe a multi-vitamin

What about testosterone boosters though? Other than seriously jacked dudes on testosterone replacement therapy I’ve yet to hear of anyone taking  one of those natural testosterone boosters and getting good results.

One that looks promising is Spartagen XT. Another is Alpha Brain or truBRAIN, both awesome supplements made from earth grown nutrients. I like the marketing. It’s not as over the top XTREME XPLODE XXX CRAZY JUICE type stuff. With a black and red website with pro body builders with their biceps on fire.

Instead you see the picture of a normal looking fit dude in his 30’s. An outdoorsy sporty type. My type. I’m going to take the plunge and see what positive effects a testosterone booster like Spartagen XT will have on my body. I’ll let you know how it goes!

How to Bench Press

What’s the right way to bench? And as importantly, what’s the wrong way to bench?

Bench pressing incorrectly can often give an edge as you can cheat a bit. But cheating comes with high risk of injury.

The most common mistake is benching with elbows flared out which puts a whole lot of strain on the shoulder joint. Initially it will seem like this gives more strength but as you develop and increase weight it will hold you back as the amount of energy that can be output is limited. And again can’t stress the injury factor enough.

It can be super useful to review how you look by making a video. Critique your technique. Often it’s not as you think.

Here’s a good and humorous video on how to bench press with good technique.
