“Opposite” Holiday Workouts? (Not What You Think…)

I don’t know if you know this or not, but pretty much every
successful person is successful for one reason and one
reason only (besides natural talent or genetics):

They do the opposite of what every one else does.

Consider this:

1. Michael Jordan, arguably one of the greatest basketball
players of all time, couldn’t make his high school basketball
team.

As a result, he did what others wouldn’t do: He relentlessly
practiced and practiced and practiced and practiced.

He visualized his success.

Nothing exemplifies this more than Game 5 of the 1997
NBA Finals against the Utah Jazz where Jordan had the
flu and was so weak, he could barely play.

However, he visualized himself running, shooting, jumping…

… And went on to score 38 points!

Not bad for a guy lying on the floor in the fetal position
hours before.

2. Millionaires are often made when others are hoarding
their money during the worst of financial times, like the
Great Depression.

Take Howard Hughes for example – yeah, the nutty guy
with the long fingernails who lived out of a hotel room
lined with bottles of his own urine.

Not only did he film “Hell’s Angels” – the most expensive
movie ever made at the time ($3.8M), shortly after the
crash of 1929, he formed the Hughes Aircraft Company
in 1932 and went on to build it into a major-league
defense supplier.

How in the H-E-double-hockey-sticks does this apply to
your kettlebell training??

Simple.

Other people are doing 1 of 2 things this time of year:

1. Trying to survive

or

2. Trying to combat holiday fat gain.

Both are great strategies and should be used depending
on your needs.

Here’s a 3rd strategy which you probably haven’t
considered:

Since you’re gonna overeat and enjoy yourself this time of
year anyway, why not put those calories to good use?

Why not engage in some hard, short workouts designed to
put some muscle on?

Why would you want to do that?

1. Because it’s easy to do when you’re in a caloric surplus.

2. Because muscle gives your body shape – because, honestly,
who doesn’t like to look a little muscular or athletic?

(Most people don’t know this, but it’s muscle that gives a
woman her shape. No muscle, no shape/curves.)

3. Because a little extra muscle on your body increases
your metabolic rate – the amount of calories you can burn
each day.

4. And, here’s a little secret, if you use the right training
protocols, you can also burn a little fat on the back end
of your workouts as a bonus. (Don’t go out of your way
to do this – it’ll just happen when your programming is
correct.)

What kind of training protocols?

I’m a big fan of either complexes or density training using
BIG lifts.

Clean and Presses or Clean and Push Presses are awesome
for complexes or density training protocols.

So are Front Squats and even Jerks.

(Jerks tend to be somewhat technically demanding though,
so more often than not, use the Push Press.)

They use ALL your muscles, require a lot of calories, and
can be done QUICKLY –

To fit into the busiest of schedules.

Imagine this – your workouts, after your warm up, last
somewhere between 4 and 8 minutes.

Sound too good to be true?

Sound like informercial hype?

I can assure you, it’s not.

The reason the workouts are so short is that they use a
form of interval training.

(No, it’s not complexes.)

But don’t mistake short for easy.

These workouts – this program – is far from it.

It’s called “Double Stuff” and it’s actually Month 9 from
my “Kettlebell Burn Inner Circle.”

Normally, you’d have to be a member of the Inner Circle to
get your hands on this.

However, when you order your copy of “Kettlebell STRONG!”
today, I’ll give you immediate access (as soon as I get your
email regarding your order) to the “Double Stuff” program.

It’s 3 days a week for 4 weeks.

And you will be able to fit it into the busiest of schedules.

Imagine, 4 to 8 minutes and – BAM! – You’re done.

All you’ll need is a pair of KBs that you can Clean + Press
about 10-12 times.

Talk soon.

P.S. Just think – 4 to 8 minutes 3x a week and you could
use all this Holiday feasting to put on some extra muscle
and maybe, just maybe, even peel off a pound or two
without trying.

Sounds good to me, Champ.

(It’s the opposite of what everyone else is doing.)
