As you have heard me say many times by now, stress is probably the number one thing that gets in the way of you achieving your performance and physique goals. When you get stressed out your cortisol levels rise and your testosterone levels plummet. Cortisol is the stress hormone that eats muscle and adds slabs of bodyfat.
I have seen this happen first hand with clients many times. When they are going through a stressful time such as studying for exams or trying to make a team, they gain bodyfat around the waist. This is from all the excess cortisol their bodies are producing.
Last year I found an incredible way to combat stress that made a huge difference in my life. Being a naturally high strung, intense kind of guy, I need all the help I can get. Discovering the Holosync Meditation program changed my life.
Within just a couple of weeks I noticed a big difference in my stress levels. My focus improved, my sleep quality was better and I just didn’t get as stressed out about things as I normally did.
Recently we opened a new gym and I have been working 24/7. Because of that I hate to admit it, but I have skipped my meditation sessions at least three times a week or more for the past month. And the difference is dramatic. It’s like a complete 180. I’m stressed out of my mind and just know that if I had been following the program as I used to I would be able to deal with all of this a lot better.
So starting today I’m back to meditating every day. Summers coming and I can’t afford to be shrinking away and getting fat. I need to obliterate this stress immediately.
The great Henry Rollins once said, “Through the years I have combined meditation, action and the Iron into a single strength.”
You can’t just be balls to the wall all the time and do nothing but lift heavy weights. You need to pay attention to the other stuff as well. Strong body, strong mind.
I have turned countless clients on to this program and their results have all been phenomenal.
I truly hope that you will give it a try and that you will drop me a line in a few weeks sharing your results.
