Big Man Strong Rules to The Game #1
Yo what’s up man?
I wanted to share this page with you because I think it’s high time you were made aware of something going on in this little community of ours. This scourge that’s been plaguing our community has been brewing for the past few years and I think it’s time someone finally spoke out against it.
What EXACTLY am I talking about?
The alarming number of people who can tell you everything there is about training.. but can’t do a damn thing when it comes time to train.
Years back when I first started liftin, it was all about putting up big numbers and getting BIG. Nowadays you’ve got these skinny lil pencil-neck trainers and coaches over-analyzing everything and getting people no where.
And that’s not even the worst of it. Thanks to those twerps – a new breed of lifter has been born and he is allllll talk.
If you are like me, you train to become the biggest, baddest version of yourself and the last time I checked that had absolutely nuthin to do with how “functional” you are.
If you ask me – it’s time for a new lifting revolution.
It’s time for training to go back to it’s roots, it’s time guys like us returned to sweaty gyms, big weights and REAL balls to the wall training.
This is why I created Big Man Strong and this is why I am sharing the Big Man Strong rules to the game.
What Are These Aformentioned Rules To Game?
Everything you need to know about proper training, nutrition and lifestyle.
If you follow what I am about to share with you I guarantee that you WILL start pushing big weight, packing on the size and becoming the biggest, baddest version of yourself.
So let’s get started…
The first thing we are gonna tackle is the training in itself. Read through this thoroughly and heed my advice- it’ll make a world of difference in how much you progress over the next few months.
Rule To The Game #1 Eliminate The Muscular Imbalances
If there is one thing I have learned over my 16 years in the gym it’s this…
The human body is very smart and very adaptable. Our bodies protect us from a myriad of dumbass choices we make everyday which could result in getting us maimed or even worse killed.
One such example is the swelling and tenderness which occurs after you have over-exerted yourself… you may not realize this but that is your body tapping you on the shoulder and telling you
“ Hey bub, maybe it’s time you took it easy”
Your body does the exact same thing when it comes to building muscle and losing fat if there are underlying muscular imabalances.
But rather than send a gentle reminder that you that are fucking-up, your body will react like a petulant child, cross its arms and just refuse to grow.
Can’t say I blame it either…
As I said earlier, your body is smarter than you are. It instinctively knows if it allows you to put more muscle mass on a faulty frame – you will get injured!
So what’s a guy to do?
A guys gotta smarten-up and get the musculature in balance before they start really loading up the body
This should always start by alloting some time to bettering tissue quality.
Chronically tight and restricted muscles suck. They hinder your bodies ability to express strength by reducing the contractile properties of your muscles. A muscle that is really knotted-up can even go as far as shutting itself off and forcing other muscles to pick-up the slack.
But alas not all hope is lost…
Like I said a little bit earlier – we can nurse the tissue quality back to health.
Currently the best ways to restore tissue quality are Active Release Therapy and Self Myofascial Release.
Once you have started to correcting your tissue quality it’ll be time to get those once dormant muscles to start firing properly again.
This step is pretty damned easy…
All it takes is a regression in the complex patterns you currently perform in the gym and a bit of self awareness to realize that the right muscles are coming into play.
Now this may not sound like the sexiest workout… it may even sound a little bit like *gasp corrective exercise but before you get all panties in a bunch, you should know…
The corrective exercise’s we are talking about are a lot different than the sleep inducing movements the nincompoops in most major gyms are telling people to do
The corrective exercises I am talking about will have you working harder than a mule on a hot summer day
Rule To The Game #2: Attack the Barbell
If you’ve made it this far down the page you may have picked up on just how passionate I am about training.
Here’s the thing about passion - it can be an untamed BEAST
This is why I get so damned angry everytime I walk into a commercial gym and see grown ass men training with bubble gum pink dumbbells
I don’t need to tell YOU this… you already know that If you wanna get Stronger you’ve gotta train heavy. This means every once in a while you’ve got to really push it and try to max out
The beauty of testing your maximum in a given lift is it teaches you two very valuable lessons. For one it’ll teach you to;
Man-up and and approach the bar with confidence
The second benefit of max-effort training is it’ll get your body in the habit of recruiting the central nervous system more efficiently… this leads to moving BIGGER weights.
Rule #3 Ignore the dumb shit
This rule cuts to the heart of my entire message. The internet
has given rise to a heap of so-called fitness experts who have never
trained anybody a day in their lives…
These are the people who are making things so damn complicated and leading you further and further from your end goal. Becoming bigger, stronger, more muscular and leaner doesn’t have to be THAT complicated – if you remember these three things
Train hard, eat right and get rest-up… it really is that simple
If you find that you’ve been spinning your wheels trying to follow all of the complicated theories those fools keep telling you…
Remember to take a step back and ignore the dumb shit
Go Big or Go Home
