“The frenzy of now”– Impatience prevents true progress

You see it every day, people getting all rude and crazy-acting over things they can’t control, the person driving too slow in front of them. No matter how close they tailgate the other driver, he is not going to go any faster.

So what’s that got to do with training?

Only everything! Somethings cannot be rushed no matter how much a person thinks they should.

It takes time to get really strong, no one will get as strong as Bud Jeffries, for example, in only a few weeks or months. He has trained hard for many years.


One question I get pretty regularly from new guys is how many days a week he should train. For our training system, I recommend three days a week for most people.

They want to add training days because they want to go faster. They don’t want to wait for their bodies to do what they do during the process. It takes time and hard work, which both go against the “popular” culture’s impatient world view.

You can want a strong body all you want, you can think you are entitled to it; but you aren’t. If you don’t patiently do the hard work over the course of months and years you will never get it.

You have to eat clean, get plenty of quality sleep, hydrate properly, and handle the stresses of life well on top of all the hard training it takes to get really strong.

You can’t download a strong body, you have to earn it.
