How do I get strong? This is the number one question I get asked. The short generic answer is...Consistently Lift Heavy, Duh!
Many people who ask me this I find out have been on 3-5 programs over the last 6 months. They later leave ZeusMethod after 1 month saying, "I didn't get as strong as I thought I would." Newsflash...it takes time, a long time to get strong!
These people are trying to fast track themselves to becoming someone else. The people we look up to and want to be similar to, have been doing their craft for years or decades longer than we have. To assume 1-2 months will bring on radical change is ignorant.
Zeus Method is not a sexy program. Getting strong is not sexy. I know how to get strong, and if you know anyone really strong they will tell you the secret is about doing the work.
One of my favorite quotes is: "The worst program followed consistently is better than the best program followed inconsistently."
If you are looking for a sexy program than you are searching for a brain stimulation. Doing the work is a physical stimulation. It should have you wondering how you are going to lift the weights you are supposed to hit today, tomorrow, and be ready for your rest day because you are beat. A brain stimulation is making your brain feel good because of the way something looks. If you are looking for eye candy than stay on Social Media, the gym is a place for work.
If you have not been getting stronger than there are two reasons:
You aren’t trying to get stronger.
You have not been lifting heavy consistently enough.
I put in the work. I would rather fight for what I want by putting in the work, doing the things it takes to get to my goals, and fail (which I have most times). People think others are where they are because they haven’t failed at accomplishing their goals. On the contrary, its because of all the failures and continuing to push that enables those top people to reach heights others believe untouchable.
The other alternative is to talk about something I want, blame others for not have it, while not taking responsibility for getting know where near it. We need to take responsibility and give ourselves a chance or be honest with ourselves that its not a goal we want to chase.
The next time you start a program or if you are on one. Commit to 6 months, this will not do yourself and your goals true justice, it will allow you to see it through to a point where you can measurably see a difference.
Take Responsibility, put in the work, and stay consistent!
