Do all of your workouts have a goal?
Do you wander around the gym like a lost puppy?
Sadly, when it comes to “working out”, most people fall into the lost puppy category.
But don’t worry! You don’t have to be lost anymore.
Uncle Nick is here to set you straight.
The “Exercise” Trap
Even though we all start off on the road to building a better body with good intentions, most of us fuck up and get lost along the way.
Our workouts go from organized routines that give each body part the attention it needs – to everyday bench press sessions with some curls thrown in.
And once you get tired of benching every day, you begin to slowly spiral out of control until you find yourself in “exercise” hell.
By now your probably asking yourself; “What the fuck is exercising anyway?”
Isn’t exercising a good thing?
No! It isn’t!
Nick G’s Professional Definition Of Exercise – Random physical activity performed for a random amount of time that elevates your heart rate, makes you look stupid and increases the risk of injury.
Examples Of “Exercise” Activities
- Box Jumps
- Jumping Jacks
- Jump Rope
- Stair Master
- All Machine Exercises
- Any Fitness Personality’s “Program”
- High Rep “Pump” Training
Exercise Program Example
Walking/Jogging on a treadmill until you don’t feel like it anymore.
Wandering around the gym for an hour doing a few exercises here and there.
Going to the juice bar to get a $10 protein smoothie that tastes like ass.
Jumping Jacks 3×20
Barbell Curls 3×10
Stair Master until you get bored.
Attempting to flirt with random gym girls who wear tight yoga pants.
Going home without any numbers and a bad case of blue balls.
You decide to stay home and do some P90x combined with Jim Bob’s 10-minute ab workout. Feel the burn!
The Power Of Training
Training, on the other hand, is an organized systematic approach to your workouts that guarantees progress.
Each and every workout has a mission that needs to be accomplished and every time you perform an exercise, you’ll either be lifting more weight or doing more sets/reps.
You’ll know exactly which exercises need to be trained and exactly how much weight you need to be lifting every time you lift.
This allows you too:
- Save Time
- Get Results Faster
- Remain Injury-Free
- Become The Strongest Guy In The Gym
Training Program Example
Standing Press 3×5
Barbell Rows 3×5
Barbell Curls 3×5
Bench Press 3×5
Incline Bench Press 3×5
Lying Triceps Extensions 3×5
While the program above looks retardedly “simple”, trust me, it’s as good as it gets.
Following it will get you bigger and stronger in no time at all.
Time To Reflect
So, now that you know the difference between exercising and training, it’s time to ask yourself one important question…
which one am I doing?
If your answer is “exercising” then it’s time to realize the error of your ways and wake the fuck up.
However, If you’ve actually been training, pat yourself on the back and keep going!
You’re doing the right thing!
