After years of being an intelligent trainer you became an experienced trainer…starting to
understand what does and doesn’t work for you. You started to see through the B.S. and
realized that nothing, not a supplement or a special way of training will ever replace
consistent hard work.
I spent almost twenty years going through this exact evolution, and just recently I accepted
the fact that there was one last step I needed to take. Becoming experienced and intelligent in
my approach to working out wasn’t enough, I needed to become WISE.
This last step was very, very difficult and it forced me to move way outside of my comfort
zone. However, being forced outside of your comfort zone is almost always a good thing. In
my opinion, you will never see success unless you move outside of your comfort zone.
I’ve moved outside of my comfort zone three times in my life, and each time, the result has
The first time was when I was in my third year at university. Back then my goal was to bench
press 300 pounds. Both my workout partner and I were mid‐200 pound benchers and 300
pounds seemed like ‘the ultimate bench press goal’.
By the end of my 3rd year I was benching 280 pounds. It wasn’t 300, but I thought it was
pretty darn good. After all, in my group of friends, I was one of the top benchers.
That summer I decided to stay at University and take some extra courses.
I can remember the first day I went to the gym during the summer semester ‐ It was a
COMPLETELY difference crowd of people who were working out.
My usual crew was not there, instead the gym was almost empty, except for 4 or 5 guys who
were A LOT bigger and A LOT stronger than me.
Adam, Steve, John and Big Jeremy were all 50 or 60 pounds heavier than me, and they ALL
benched pressed in the high 300’s.
At this point I had 2 options:
1) Stay in my comfort zone; workout by myself and try to hit 300 pounds on the bench.
2) Move out of my comfort zone; start training with the big boys, and accept the fact that 300
pounds was no longer an acceptable goal.
I picked the later. It was uncomfortable. Actually, that’s not true. It was darn right SCARY.
But I’m glad I did it.
By moving outside of my comfort zone 300 pounds was no longer a mental block, and by the
end of August I was bench‐pressing 355 pounds for sets of 2.
55 pounds more than what I previously thought was the ‘perfect’ Bench Press.
