When It Comes To Strength Less Can Be More!


That’s right, today’s blogisode is all about how you can simplify your strength and conditioning program in order to be effective without all the complication. No matter your circumstances the process of building strength can be practical and effective if you just simplify the circumstances.

How Less Can Be More…

A prime example of this can be seen in the picture above with my good friend and retired Navy SEAL Brad McLeod helping out some students with building a homemade medicine ball during our Kettlebell Power And Speed Formula clinic. I’m a big believer in simplifying things to bring into focus what is most important when it comes to acquiring strength and I think I can speak for Brad too when saying that. 

The reason I’m talking about this today is because Brad just recently published up my latest article on the issue over at his website at SEALGrinder PT. I took the opportunity to discuss acquiring strength by simplifying the model with a tried and true method to help your approach on getting stronger.

  1. Hey Brandon, great article that pretty much puts an end to the excuse game. One of the biggest impediments I see facing people when it comes to getting their feet firmly on the physical fitness path is the incredible bombardment of marketing schemes.

    People have been brain washed into thinking that unless they have “X” or belong to “Y” then they will not be able to meet their fitness goals. A simple review of the legendary strength and fitness athletes of old reveals the truth of the matter. Yet there is a reason why successful marketing firms have penthouse offices … well designed and delivered marketing works.

    It’s an uphill battle all the way as the “glitter and sparkle” marketing schemes all play to a basic human weakness … the desire to get something for nothing or with very little effort. This drive for seeking an easy, effortless way for self-development is so strong that products are continually rolled out, fail, and many people refuse to confront the reality of the matter. Simply look at the numerous “miracle abs” products that keep coming out or Dr. Oz’s latest “take this pill and become buff as a mo’fo in 6 weeks” hype flooding the Net.

    I really admire people such as your good self who stay right in the middle of the fight and continue to champion the truth in spite of daunting odds as the fitness industry has deep pockets.

    The 7 primal movement patterns you focused on is an excellent foundation platform and people can build a life time of fitness pursuits from it alone. As also highlighted in your article it doesn’t take a lot of money and/or paraphernalia to get a good quality work out in. My Son leaves for his unit’s annual deployment soon and in speaking with him the other night he’s jazzed about the prospect of rigging up some exercise equipment in the field. He told me he remembers how I constructed my basement gym from some heavy items, a few lengths of pipe, duct tape, and 550 cord. I’ve directed him to your article and this should be an interesting experience for him.

    Another right on point article, Brandon, congrats!

    1. Doc I really appreciate that! Yes, the most valuable thing any individual can have when it comes to training is knowledge, not equipment. You are exactly right too when you talk about the marketing game inside the fitness industry.

      Doc I have struggled with this myself and have even been tempted by other sites to try and come “over” to their way of doing things. Nope, I’m not selling myself out. I kindly declined their offers and have stayed the path.

      I’m amazed how the “quick fix” continues to be a hot seller though because it is shot down time and time again. Even still people want to gravitate back to another quick fix rather than just rolling up their sleeves and going to work as you have pointed out so many times.

      Doc it means the world to me that a guy with your background, education, experience, and knowledge follows this site and uses this platform for a resource. People just like you are the reason I’m glad I never chose that other path with those other companies.

      Tell your son that I’m also hyped about his future outdoor “gym rigging” and that I’d like to hear more details about it once he’s had a few trial runs with it! Thanks again Doc!
