Today I’m going to get all up in your head. Don’t worry … This mindset lobotomy won’t hurt a bit–unless you’re one of those people we talked about last time who is constantly giving their power away. But I’m confident that’s not you, or at least who you WANT to be.

So to help you better understand your “power source,” today is a brain-only episode.

Today, we’re talking about:

  • How to truly KNOW if something is possible for you, or not. The answer might surprise you … (1:46)
  • Why you’re better off setting benchmarks instead of timelines. (Hint: time doesn’t exist in your brain) (2:22)
  • Understanding the three parts of your brain and how certain parts battle the other, causing fear, doubt and anxiety. Just knowing this will put you leaps ahead toward accomplishing ANY goal (3:20)
  • Why it’s important to consider what achieving any goal will cost you–before you even set out to achieve it (5:12)
  • The real reason most people live mediocre lives, and how to effortlessly rise above their judgement (8:07)
  • Setting measurements and benchmarks like you were a plane flying to New Jersey, or wherever you so desire (9:10)

Bringing it all together ...

I tend to get really energized by these type of episodes. I hope you do, too. See? The mind, body and spirit are fully integrated. So understanding the brain better is going to pay HUGE dividends when it come to achieving what you want to achieve in your physical and spiritual lives.

Anyhow, hope you enjoyed today’s show. Don’t forget you can go to my Facebook page to catch these episodes live: facebook.com/KyleNewellFitnessExpert. Leave me a comment or drop me a message. Maybe your question will turn into one of these future episodes.

Here’s a quote I feel perfect relates both the mindset and nutrition and body performance aspects of today’s show. It’s by Isak Dinesen.

“The cure for anything is salt water: sweat, tears or the sea.”

In the first part of today’s show I’m sort of going to be talking about the sweat and tears part as these two things are key to taking back your power. Most people give their power away by not claiming, or by actively deflecting these three key components. Find out what they are, then listen to why everything you think you know about high sodium intake is disturbingly wrong.

Today’s show highlights:

  • MINDSET:
    • He-man was right! You do have the power. So stop giving it away! Claim it as your own and see striking changes happen in no time. Here’s how to get your power back ... (1:23)
    • Nick Saben has been a pretty huge success as a coach, wouldn’t you agree? Take a page from his playbook for achieving any goal (3:21)
  • SODIUM – BREAKFAST OF CHAMPIONS:
    • Like the foreign kid in the class, everyone misunderstands sodium (4:54)
    • Don’t take your doctor’s word for it. Here’s what’s actually causing your high blood pressure (Hint: It likely isn’t sodium!) (5:20)
    • Just to clear the table, I’m not talking about table salt. Use this source of sodium for best results (5:38)
    • What you should probably know and understand about how sodium and potassium interact (6:35)
    • Why if you’re worried about sodium making you retain water, you should drink … MORE water (9:18)
    • My professional recommendation for how much sodium you should ingest every day (10:11)

We covered a lot about sodium today, so I’m going to cut this short and just say give this recommendation a try for a month. If you don’t feel more energy, less stressed and generally overall better, then I’ll be the first to line up surprised.

Anyhow, hope you enjoyed today’s show. Log on to my Facebook page to catch these episodes live: facebook.com/KyleNewellFitnessExpert, and drop me a message or a post.

Continuing on with the theme of mindset shifting before we get into the nitty-gritty of the four non-negotiable supplements I believe you should be taking every day, today’s episode packs some hard-core preperation knowledge.

You know I love to read (I hope you do, too) and right now I’m reading The 12 Week Year by Brian Moran. I’m telling you, if you have ever given up on your goals and beat yourself up because you felt you didn’t have the tools to accomplish what you wanted, you need to check out this book. Here’s just a smidge of what’s in it, before we talk supplements.  

Today’s show highlights:

  • SUCCESS MINDSET:
    • The five emotional stages people go through when striving for goals, plus the mental game you must play to cross the “Valley of Despair” and press on (1:16)
    • A magic number of hours you absolutely must dedicate to hitting if you want to become great at anything, and why most people stop way short (knowing this will give you the fuel to keep going) (3:11)
  • LET’S TALK SUPPLEMENTS:
    • Four AMAZING benefits of dosing with fish oil – and a recommendation for how much you should really be taking ...(4:38)
    • Unless you live in the tropics, you’re likely deficient in his KEY vitamin that is the primary driver of a strong immune system. I’ll tell you what it is and how much you need. (5:40)
    • Ever been told you think with your stomach? Turns out, that gut is like a second brain! Take this supplement daily to keep it healthy (8:08)
    • What you likely don’t know about magnesium, and the best times of day to take it to sleep better and lose more weight (9:17)

What’s the point?

Well, that’s a good question, as the beginning of the year is always a great time to refocus (though this should be a continual process, but we’ll talk about that some other time ...)

As we talk about what supplements to take and how to prepare for the challenges that are innate with attempting to change behavior, remember, all of this is meant to help you get the maximum enjoyment, pleasure, happiness and success out of your life. This isn’t a practice run. It’s your one shot, so give your body and brain the fuel it needs to get where you want to go, and don’t settle.

Anyhow, chew on that, for what it’s worth. And if you need a little extra coaching, log on to my Facebook page: facebook.com/KyleNewellFitnessExpert, and drop me a message or a post.

If you’re the person who steps inside the gym, takes a good look around and gets overwhelmed with where to begin, this episode is for you.

The two things we are going to talk about today have something extremely valuable in common, and that is success and exercise selection. As you’ll hear, both have everything to do with simplifying the complex. So point your ears forward and listen-up!  

Today’s show highlights:

  • SUCCESS MINDSET:
    • The real reason something may seem impossible to accomplish and what you need to remember in order to press through (1:26)
    • Forget the “Secret to Success” books. This is the REAL secret and it’s much simpler than you might believe (1:40)
    • What you absolutely must do right away in order to get out of feeling in a funk (3:15)
  • EXERCISE SELECTION:
    • Why traditional bodybuilding exercises are like the Frankenstein approach to training … And forget isolation exercises. They’re a joke! Here’s why ... (4:20)
    • Did you know the body can really on perform this many movements? Here’s how to apply this knowledge to get faster, more effective full-body workouts (5:26)
    • If you only have time to do one exercise, do this one … (7:32)
    • Skip the sit-ups for a healthier and stronger core (3:30)
    • The two types of muscles in your body and what you need to know to protect them as you age (10:39)

Success in gym … and in life!

Here’s the thing, if you’re a loyal listener of the show, I already know you’re the kind of person who just keeps showing up. And that’s where 80% of success comes from … JUST KEEP SHOWING UP! I promise you, as you apply the science and control your mindset, which then helps to control your emotions, you’ll always be stepping into your best self.

At our last Newell Strength holiday party, I was asked my thoughts on intermittent fasting. I sort of chuckled because I thought the person asking was messing with me ... Turns out, they really wanted to know. So I figured this might be a good topic to share with you all.

I told the person if she would have asked me four years ago, I’d have told her the idea was crap! Turns out, though, I just didn’t know what I didn’t know. And know that I know the science, I’ve made intermittent fasting part of my lifestyle. What follows is why you should, too.

Today’s show highlights:

  • MINDSET:
    • The four mechanical parts of your brain and how to harness them for maximum personal control and power (1:44)
    • Why you have a hard time having fun if you’re overly “Type A” (2:22)
    • How your brain perceives judgement and how knowing this can help you relax when you’re in a situation that makes you nervous (3:25)
  • INTERMITTENT FASTING:
    • The two types of fat cells and how to target stubborn fat cells for supercharged weight loss (6:50)
    • How eating only twice per day can actually help make your hunger MORE manageable … plus how long to go in-between meals (8:01)
    • The hormone that wakes you up in the morning can actually help you lose weight faster, pack on muscle and laser your focus for greater productivity. Here’s how to harness it … (9:22)
    • Give your gut a break! Your parasympathetic nervous system will reward you. (10:49)

It’s science!

So I’ve been doing this intermittent fasting for three-and-a-half years straight. And with it, I’ve been able to easily maintain around 12% body fat. Plus, I simply feel great with more focus, power and energy. In a way, intermittent fasting is like taking control of your body’s natural hormones and directing them with a greater purpose. You should do it, and soon!
