Programs and training advice for developing strength and health from your home gym—or wherever you train
A few years ago, I was run down and worn out. I couldn’t put on muscle and I was starting to have health problems.
Then came a comment from a neighbor. It shot out of her mouth like a bullet: “Why are you so skinny?”
Being skinny is a similar issue to being fat. Problems with food and digestion. A weakened system, low vitality. Too much desk jockeying. Her comment cut through me and exposed something that was bothering me.
Like many Americans, I had bought into the work, work, work, mentality. Sleeping less to try to get MORE done. More of what, I wasn’t sure. But there was plenty of activity. And there I was, skinny and starting to get weak, too.
That’s when I knew I needed a change
Problem is I’d been neglecting my nutrition, sleep, and activity. I wasn’t doing the foundational things that build health from the inside out.
You need to be strong on the inside before getting strong on the outside. You must take care of your internal organs by nourishing them with enough work, rest, and fertilizing them with nutrients.
I knew this, but because I had “gotten away with it” for so long, I didn’t bother with the fundamentals.
Most people are in this exact same boat. How your body reacts to it (whether you get skinny, fat, or sick) is somewhat individual. But that your body reacts and you get devitalized and tired–incapable of doing your best–that’s assured. Nature doesn’t put up with that kind of BS.
The way I see it, the health crisis is not just about sickness, but it’s about progress and longevity of a culture. Planet Earth doesn’t want a culture that can’t take care of itself!
If you’re devitalized, the people around you suffer for it. Your wife, your kids, your colleagues, your friends.
But if you’re vital, and enthusiastic, you have the capacity to bring people up. Even just in small ways–like a simple conversation with someone at a park.
That’s what it’s all about. Making small improvements over time and not being in a rush about it.
Why I wrote The Home Gym Self-Improvement Plan
Right away when the virus hit I knew it was a call to health. And for a brief (naive) moment, I thought the media and government would take it as such.
But that didn’t happen. Instead of talking about building health big red dots were placed on maps fear was being built instead. Instead of mentioning that we could be doing things to build our immune system, we focused on the number of cases and deaths.
Building health and strength is not a feature of our pharmaceutical industry infused healthcare system.
Doctors won’t build health, either. Their model is different–it’s a “treat the disease” model and you get stuck on prescription meds. It works because a lot of people are lazy and don’t want to change.
But not you. You’re ready! Ready to build your own health using proven fundamental information that’s worked since the dawn of time.
In the early 1900s, there was a physical culture movement. Many great men and women contributed to it and wrote down the laws of health and strength. I’m talking about guys like George F. Jowett, George Hackenschmidt, Bernarr MacFadden, John Tilden, and Paul Bragg.
Plus more contemporary figures like Perry Rader, Reg Park, Bradley J. Steiner, up to Steve Maxwell, Pavel Tsatsouline, and Louise Hay, who understood the emotional issues behind various health issues.
I wanted to be able to come back to that information and remind myself of it at any time. But not some huge book–just a short, quick read that I could open up to get solid information, inspiration, and training routines and advice whenever I needed them.
That’s what the Home Gym Self-Improvement Plan is for. You can plan your workouts with it. You can use the advice inside to overcome addictions. You can refer to the eating section to get some inspiration on proper diet.
It’s a trusty field guide for getting a great workout or diet advice and mental training work. All three work together to build a healthy, strong, and vital body.
