  1. Challenge Creates CHANGE!!! Challenge is THE STIMULUS for results! Follow up it with post workout shake geared towards your goal and magnify results!

    If you ain’t sweatin’ you ain’t workin’! Do you want TV’s while you’re doing cardio? Do you want it nice and cool while you’re working out? Do you wanna see your friends to catch up and say hi? If so, you’re better off just going to lunch!

    If you want to take advantage of every set, relish every rep and get better each and every time you set foot in the iron crib, then you’ve got to look at each trip to the gym as an “opportunity” to better yourself rather than social hour. Get in, Get yours, Get out!

  3. G-Force!~ Love it brother! The one thing that I hear you say a lot that drives home the point is, “Savor the rep!” Yesterday my client, Adam Meyer, noticed how focused you were during your sets. Where most people focuse on just getting it over with, CHAMPIONS SAVOR THE JOURNEY! You’re the man Gregg!

    Billy, great post. What is your advice on “training duration” if people are really challenging themselves in a single workout session? I ask this because you’ll see some people give all they have and are done in 10 minutes, and then you’ll see people going all out for an hour or more. What’s your experience for maximizing results when it comes to duration or length of a workout?

  5. Hey B-Francis! Great question! Training duration is highly variable and is dependent upon the client’s goal. If for instance someone is training for an endurance sport like cycling or distance running a 10 minute all-out workout is not the best protocol. However, if someone is short on time and in good health and wished to lose body fat then a shorter, more intense protocol will work. Ideally, in a perfect world I would have fat loss clients training 40-60 minutes with proper work:rest intervals. One exception that comes to mind is anyone who has adrenal fatigue then they would receive the greatest benefit from a 10-20 minute protocol. In this case, you would need rest intervals between 60-90 seconds. Otherwise, you will just drive them into the ground. The first step here is to gradually challenge the body, recover, and supply the right nutrients and enough rest.
    Back to your question though.
    Optimally, workouts that last 40-60 minutes for most people.
    But it is amazing what can be achieved in 10-30 minutes if that’s all you got.

    Bottom line, there is always a way. You don’t need to be perfect you just need to consistently challenge your body.
