So those of you who follow my blog know that I’m somewhat of an erudite. My mind requires stimulation most of the time. I like to think and ponder life’s mysteries and discover secrets no man knows. It is half spiritual, half intellectual.
What you may not know is that I’ve figured out by trial and error that the key to this ability has been partially (partially) unlocked through working out. The brain gets the same high as a line of cocaine gives it from working out – aerobics, cardio, and lifting. Well, that’s a little bit of a hyperbolic exaggeration but you get the point.
So, what I’ve challenged myself to do is get myself in amazing physical shape by working out the most intense aerobics, cardio, and lifting routines I can think of for 60 minutes daily, 7 days a week. No breaks. You don’t need a break. What your muscles need is a chance to rebuild. But that just means your off days will be walking and running.
I’m not going to go into details about what workout you do because a simple YouTube search will give you the plan that’s right for you. But I will recommend P90X, because the last time I did that program I dropped 20 pounds in the first month as was able to run 3 miles with light sweat and then go lifting afterwords. Granted, I was 16 and that was 10 years ago. But 26 is the new 16 and I’m after mental benefits this time – the ability to concentrate, focus, and think faster.
These are the benefits you get from working out. It will give you an intense mental edge against your enemies. I meant to say peers (lol)! Just find a way to commit to 60 minutes per day. When you first wake up is preferential. You’ll notice this will help you get rid of your addictions, if you have any, such as coffee and cigarettes. Your ability to handle stress increases. You become better. This is truly the way to “limitless.”
Also, it doesn’t matter what you eat if you commit to this hard. Go hard and go fast. Drink a Coke. Of course, results will be better if you also eat healthy. And bad food CAN cancel out some brain benefits you get. But initially it won’t matter until you reach your first limit-break. You’ll know you’ve reached it when the working out isn’t hard anymore. So give it a try.
