New Year's Deadlifting and Deadlines
Finished up the last workout of 2013 and it was fantastic because it included my favorite superset pairing of deads and presses.
The workout went like this:
1A) Box Jumps
1C) Military Press
2A) Front Squat
2B) Power Shrug
That was it. Good times.
Had a really common question on Facebook today:
Q: What's the best way to combine Turbulence Training (TT) and the Home Workout Revolution (HWR) program?
For maximum fat loss, do 3 days of Turbulence Training (as outlined in the program) and add 1 day of HWR on the first of your back-to-back rest days.
For maximum fitness gains, do 2 days of Turbulence Training and 2 days of HWR. Do one day of TT followed by one day of HWR and then take a day off. Then do your 2nd day of TT followed by one day of HWR and then take 2 days off. Keep on pushing on!
And Turbulence Training is on sale this week only here:
Today's Kickbutt Mindset Tip - Harness the Power of The Deadline:
The deadline is all powerful and you must take advantage of it.
One place to use a deadline is in contests to get your clients to take action. I do this in all of my fat loss contests. Each contest has a deadline that helps folks stay motivated to see their changes through to the end. See the amazing results on this page for proof:

Another place to use deadlines is with your goal setting.
It's soon going to be January 1st, and if you're like me, you'll get a rush out of creating New Year's resolutions.
Put a deadline on them.
Don't just say you want to make $100,000 in 2014.
Put a deadline on it.
So let's say you pick September 30th, 2014 as the date by which you want to hit $100K this year.
Now start working backwards.
What do you need to do by then to hit $100K?
What do you need to accomplish by June 1st?
What do you need to do by March 31st? Feb 28th? January 31st? January 15th? January 3rd?
Reverse goal set your way to success with the deadline pushing you on at every step.
Harness the power of The Deadline - it might be the most important of the 5 Pillars of Transformation.
Use it to double your results, every day.
Put this magic to your advantage.
And don't forget the #1 New Year's Resolution:
Remember the Golden Rule. Do unto others as you would have others do unto you.
Happy New Year.
And one last tip...
The only cure for a Hangover or Muscle Soreness is a time machine. Know your limits for New Year's Eve & New Year's resolutions!
