Do you want to be among the world’s most elite? What if I told you that just by doing this one simple thing you’d be in the company of less than only 10 percent of the population? Skeptical yet? It’s true! And when you do the deep thinking and discover for yourself a guiding philosophy for your life, it becomes easier to live your life on your terms – like the top 10 percent of the population does.

But if you’re going to define the mission statement for your life and future decision-making opportunities, there are some things you should know.

Highlights from today’s show:

- This one thing will make every decision you make in life so much easier (1:36)
- Why you should never intentionally try to make people feel bad, especially if you’re a leader (2:46)
- How to gain the “slight edge” and why that’s important for sustained success (3:37)
- A piece of advice I was given more than 20 years ago that still has me motivated to keep pressing forward (4:55)
- Why violent accountability is the only way to create your best life (5:09)
- It’s not selfish to say, “It’s about me.” Here’s how you can be the bigger person with this exact mindset (6:23)
- The ideal length for your mission statement or life philosophy should be … (8:11)
- I’m not a rebel. I wear clothes, after all. But I do live life on my terms. You should, too, and here’s why … (9:12)
- When is good, good enough? When it’s good. How to overcome your fear of judgement so you can recognize good when you see it (11:30)

Not all who wander are lost, but those who are lost likely got that way by wandering …

If you’ve been listening for a while, you know I LOVE anything and everything about strolling in nature. Taking a nice hike and taking in the scenery while meandering with no particular path to follow is a nice way to enjoy nature, but you should always at least have a bearing for where you are. It works for hikes. Not so much for your life’s direction. If you waffle and flounder expecting life to just happen to you, it will. But you may not like what you get. Avoid wandering far away from your life’s purpose by following the advice in this episode to define your life’s philosophy.

 

Thanks for listening today. I hope you enjoyed it. Please leave the show a review on iTunes, and like me on Facebook: facebook.com/KyleNewellFitnessExpert.

Follow your mission statement rigidly and go out and win your week! You’re stronger than you know!

Peace,

Kyle Newell

I was still doing bodybuilding competitions when I found Scott Able, and I’ll admit … I was looking to cheat. No, I wasn’t going to take banned substances, and I wasn’t going to hammer any knee-caps, but I was looking to find scientific validation to my desire to incorporate cheat days into my competition diet. Scott actually showed me something even better, and I hired him as my fitness coach. When I did, I set in motion a relationship that would bear fruit in so many ways – one, being core to the success of Newell Strength, and my fitness … nay, life philosophies. So what might these Able-isms offer you? Listen to find out.

Highlights from today’s show:

First, a couple notes on sleep:

- You may need to skip sleeping in, and sleep less if you want to achieve this MOST IMPORTANT aspect when it comes to setting healthy sleep patterns (1:16)
- Did you know drinking alcohol during the day (or evening) does this to your R.E.M. sleep? Hint: it’s not good. (2:11)

Able-isms:


- There’s great wisdom in the unconventional … workouts. I share one that’s sort of a “go-to” for me ... (2:40)
- Your metabolism isn’t confined to a day. Why understanding this gives you a major boost in reaching fitness goals (4:41)
- Why you’ll rarely ever get what you need, but you’ll almost always get what you want. Do this to shift your exercise and nutrition mindset … (6:40)
- Your training should never be like tracks in a sandhill. Pour the water from different spots for a change. And while you’re at it, deprive yourself of oxygen in your workouts (7:50)
- Need a good coach? Look in the mirror. If you have relationships of any kind, you’re automatically a coach. But don’t fall into this dangerous trap (10:36)

If the chase is wearing you out ...

Stop chasing. Every goal you set should be centered around bringing more pleasure and more happiness into your life. This doesn’t mean you shouldn’t do hard things, but that those hard things you do should have a purpose that will bring you more of the life you want.

Scott is great at helping people want more out of their training, out of their fitness and out of their lives. I highly recommend you check him out. His website is: www.ScottAble.com. If you get good, actionable advice out of these episodes, give Scott some love as his science-based counter-cultural approach is a foundational aspect to my own approach.

Anyway, I hope you enjoyed this episode. Please leave the show a review on iTunes, and like me on Facebook: facebook.com/KyleNewellFitnessExpert.

Keep it unconventional and look for the bigger picture as you set out win your week! You’re stronger than you know!

Peace,

You ever notice that no matter who you ask, “pizza” seems to be their favorite food? I sort of think it might be the key to world peace as we get people to focus on that which we have in common. But this isn’t an episode about food or foreign relations. No … This episode is about The Fitness Pizza Pie. Enjoy these six slices regularly, every day even, and achieving your health and fitness goals should give you no indigestion.

Shall we get into your fitness pizza recipe?

Highlights from today’s tale:

- Why you need to be more vague with your goals so you can be sure you don’t cut out this crucial component that your brain craves in order to be happy (1:17)
- Jesus and Buddha achieved vibrational energy levels of 1000. Most people never get to energy levels above 200. Why this is important if you want to solve problems (4:19)
- Fitness isn’t just about exercise, it should carry over into these key areas of your life (this is why crossfit is dumb) (6:32)
- The six slices of your fitness pizza: which is the most important slice and how do you make sure you’re getting enough of each? (8:00)
- What you need to know about visceral fat (the fat that pads your organs) and why you should NEVER let it get above this level if you value your health(8:27)
- More on the six slices of your fitness pie and how each affects the others (9:10)

The process is the goal ...

Unlike actual pizza, the fitness pizza pie is one you must indulge regularly in order to see real progress. Ordering from your fitness pizza only once per week, or from just a few slices, will keep you from seeing the kind of progress you really could achieve. Stay consistent and you’ll see results in no time. But remember, the process is the goal – if you’re not growing, you’re dying, so be sure to keep reevaluating your goals and making adjustments. With six slices to focus on, there’s always a goal to be strived for.

Anyway, hope you enjoyed today’s show. Next week, I think I’ll talk about one of the smartest fitness guys I know and all that he’s taught me. Listen to this episode to find out who it is.

Please do me a favor and leave us a review on iTunes, then follow me on Facebook: facebook.com/KyleNewellFitnessExpert.

Now get out there and win your week! You’re stronger than you know!

Gather ‘round and listen good all you serious self-improvers! Coach Kyle has an epic tale to tell. This past month at Newell Strength we’ve been celebrating our members, and we came up with the idea of giving out some throwback T-shirts from when we called it Champions’ Choice. It was such a hit, but it got me all nostalgic and I realized I’ve never really told you the story of how Newell Strength came to be. So that’s gonna happen in this episode.

It’s been a heck of a ride. And if you’re the kind of person that can pick out the leads and queues of where to learn, lead and follow, then this show will be of great value to you.

Highlights from today’s tale:

- Are you feeling too scared? How about over-analyzing? This little trick I learned and practiced even just recently as we opened our second location can help see you through (2:59)
- Your desk … the pencil … your thoughts … Everything has energy. This is why it’s more important than you know to be mindful (5:03)
- Can flooding your mind with positivity cure what ails you? My gut says, “Yes”, but you Crossroads: I almost started a landscaping business instead. Then this happened ... (8:46)
- Think attending seminars is dumb? Are breakthroughs dumb, too? (Hint: GO!) (12:35)
- The one concrete thing you absolutely must have “mapped out” to avoid every entrepreneur's worst nemesis: burn-out (13:19)
- Second-guessing and opportunities to give up WILL test you. Beat them by referring back to what I said earlier about energy ... (18:06)
 - The purpose of any and all of your goals should be this ... (22:17)

It’s a dangerous business ...

… “Stepping out your front door. If you don’t keep your feet, there’s no telling where you’ll be swept off to.” - Bilbo Baggins

Remember anything great you achieve begins with a step. Just begin, and keep stepping – one after the next – over and over until the next thing you know you’re moving faster than a diesel engine with a full cargo load chugging down hill. Your steps will have obstacles, but if there’s anything I hope you’ve learned over these year-and-a-half worth of episodes it’s that you CAN achieve any success you put your mind and your effort toward.

Thank you, sincerely, for joining me on this journey. It’s been one heck of a ride and I’m excited to see where we’ll go together.

Please do me a favor and leave us a review on iTunes, then follow me on Facebook: facebook.com/KyleNewellFitnessExpert.

Hope you enjoyed my story! Next week back to mindset. Until then … you’re stronger than you know!

Peace,

Kyle Newell

See what you made me do? You all are a distraction! Just kidding. But I did go off on some tangents with the past couple of episodes when I promised you I’d cover the final two myths of fitness and nutrition. So, lo, and behold … the final two myths and their insanity I place before you royal lobes.

Are you curious to see if you’ve bought in to these final two myths? Well then, let’s see if you’re right or wrong. Ready to get learning?

Today, you’ll learn:

- You’ve heard that life is a race analogy? Maybe, but here’s why you should view your life as though there is no finish line (1:35)
- How to optimize your metabolism that has absolutely nothing to do with dieting (4:29)
- Why the science of how long it takes for food to pass through your upper gut absolutely destroys the frequent small meals myth (4:51)
- Three core digestion and energy management benefits you experience when you eat less often (7:30)
- How fast can you shove it all in? Here’s what you should really do when you don’t have enough time to eat (7:50)
- Is this the reason people say grace before eating? Every time you eat, be sure you’re practicing the 3 joys of food (6:19)
- You can prove for yourself that cardio for fat loss is a huge wannabe trainer myth. All you need is reality, math and science. Check out these studies ... (12:11)
- Are you a duck or a chicken in the gym? One is definitely preferable for legitimately losing weight. (14:13)

Eat less often, but do this more …

Hydrate. Drink water. Consume the clear liquid that springs forth from the ground. You get the idea. So much of our body’s balance is tied into our hydration so throughout your day, be sure you’re getting enough water.

To get even hormonal balance, check out episode 85 for what supplements to take for sleep, weight loss and energy.

 

That’s it for today. Thanks for tuning in. Please leave the show a review on iTunes and follow me on Facebook: facebook.com/KyleNewellFitnessExpert.

Catch you on the next Facebook live or podcast replay! Next week I’ve got a cool mindset piece I want to share with you. Until then … you’re stronger than you know!
