To Be a Great Student

It’s critical to know how to learn and be a great student. You can learn from anyone—mistakes, coaches, experiences, mentors, peers.

“Empty your cup every day. Otherwise, it’s full and you can’t put anything else new into it.” -Kyle Newell

Growing up, Kyle was never a great student. He was not someone who was into classroom learning. For him, education comes mostly from the lessons learned outside of school.

Your Brain’s CEO

You are in-charge of your brain. As Kyle discusses, lessons do not simply transmute into your brain. You need to command, set, grow, and help it move forward.

A speaker once said that you’ll be among the lead experts in your field if you read an hour a day for 5 years. You need to learn constantly.

Everytime he tries to learn something, Kyle warms up his brain. He’d go on a trampoline and do recall games. Afterwards, he’d proceed to his hammer drills (refer to episode 33).

The Stages of Learning

There are basically four stages of learning. The first is pass learning, where you simply learn something by going through it. Next is competency, where you become comfortable.

Third is fluency, where things become easy as a result of hard work. The last stage is mastery, which requires at least 10,000 hours to achieve.

In today’s show, the human strength expert Kyle Newell gives an exciting talk about habit formation. It’s a common issue, which not a lot of people know how to deal with. Tune in, and understand how you can create new habits and get better in life!

Here are the show highlights of The Story of the Orange Mallet:

  • The Road Not Taken (00:58)
  • How habits are formed (2:09)
  • The story of the orange mallet (2:43)
  • Mylene sheaths (3:59)
  • Best time to form new habit (4:36)
  • Discipline in habit formation (6:35)
  • The law of momentum (7:43)
  • Habits as systems (8:41)
  • Fatigue makes cowards (10:13)
  • Dependent on energy (12:02)

The Road Not Taken

Kyle tried to write Robert Frost’s poem in cursive. It’s a classic poem about taking the unpopular route. New habits are formed in a similar way.

“Two roads diverged in a wood, and I—I took the one less traveled by,

And that has made all the difference.” -Robert Frost, The Road Not Taken

The brain has a neural pathway that isn’t used much. The only way to form that path is to keep going back and forth. Similarly, you need to form new routes to form new habits.

The Orange Mallet

Kyle enjoys doing hammer drills every day. He does it for brain development. He recently bought an orange mallet.

It was not easy having to change from a big mallet to a small one. He used to hit 300, but things aren’t the same. He needs focus to get used with his new orange mallet.

The Best Time to Form a Habit

People struggle creating new habits. In his coaching sessions, Kyle focuses on helping others create new habits in any areas of concern. The best time, as he explains, is when you focus only on one habit while the rest of your life turns off.

For Kyle, while he was still teaching, his best time was usually during summer. It’s when his mind is clear and can pull in different directions. Overall, Kyle suggests that you choose one key habit that could influence all else.

How are you doing with your habits? To hear about The Story of the Orange Mallet, download and listen to the entire episode! An expert in his field, Kyle wants to help people get better in life. Share this to your friends, family, and loved ones.

In today’s show, the human strength expert Kyle Newell debunks some fitness myths. Kyle has learned from the greatest minds in the industry. He quickly learned how people don’t usually think for themselves. Tune in to learn about these fitness lies.

Here are the show highlights of It's Time to Nuke Some More Fitness Lies:

  • Mainstream fitness issue (2:03)
  • The ham story (2:31)
  • Myth 1: calorie deprivation (4:32)
  • The set point (5:09)
  • Limited willpower (5:48)
  • Food as a drug (7:19)
  • Myth 2: cardio (8:39)
  • Myth 3: salt is bad (11:38)
  • Benefits of salt (13:37)
  • Myth 4: core training (14:47)

The Ham Story

Many enjoy the topics of fitness and diet. But not many people think about why they do something. They depend on what they’re told to do instead of also thinking for themselves.

For this, Kyle recalls the ham story. A mother used to bake ham in the holidays. She would cut it in half before baking. It was a tradition their family held.

The thing was they never knew why they were doing so until they asked the person who started the tradition. Similarly, many exercise to stay fit without knowing why they’re doing so. Sadly, they think that they are doing the right thing.

Cutting Calories

Number one in the list is calorie deprivation. Many think that they need to cut calories in order for them to lose weight. But, it doesn’t last long.

There is a set point that the physical body adheres to. As Kyle explains, it’s not something that you can put a habit around. You can’t go on farther than your set point.

Limited Willpower

The body has a limited amount of willpower. Take Kyle for example. His set point is 250 lbs to 235 lbs.

Every time he joins a contest, he starves himself for 4 months. Remember that the brain and body are geared for survival. They draw in weight when they need to.

In today’s show, the human strength expert Kyle Newell shares some notes he got from a seminar in Florida. Tune in for some classic insights!

Here are the show highlights of Secret Notes from Secret Seminar:

  • An interesting crowd (2:13)
  • Parts of the body that relate to vision (6:10)
  • Writing in cursive (8:01)
  • Activate the cerebellum (9:51)
  • Earning your way up (13:43)
  • Stages of stress response (15:49)
  • Speed as a product of relaxation (17:36)
  • Short interesting notes (20:00)
  • Warrior, scholar, healer (22:25)
  • Share who you are (24:28)

An Interesting Crowd

Among the seminar speakers were Matt Furey and Ted Nicholas. Many renowned personalities attended the event. One was world-class athlete who lacked confidence in himself. Sadly, lack of confidence could make you appear inauthentic to those around you.

Parts of the Body that are Related to Vision

Vision—not the actual sight—is related to different parts of the body. The first one is the parietal lobe, which allows you to remember things. It’s where ideas appear.

The second part is the crown of your head, which projects prophecy. It allows you to predict things that are going to happen. You also have the solar plexus located below your chest. It’s where your gut feeling comes from.

Writing in Cursive

Cursive writing is very much tuned into the brain. It allows your bones and ligaments to move naturally. This is why Kyle encourages people to start writing in cursive.

When you try to copy somebody else’s writing, the brain picks up that other person’s experiences. Writing it the same way gives you access to their thoughts. As Kyle puts it, fine motor skills influence gross motor performance.
