TSA 10 Training Tip EXPOSED
Nothin’ but the Truth!
During your time in the gym, you’ve probably noticed that the same training questions are discussed amongst athletes and fitness buffs day in and day out. You know the questions I’m talking about: “What exercises will shape and tone my muscles because I don’t want to get too bulky?” And let’s not forget this classic: “How do I get a better peak on my biceps?”
The list goes on and on. Unfortunately, these questions are usually answered by one of the gym’s under-certified personal trainers, or worse yet, the local gym legend. The gym legend is the guy whose arms are twice the size of his thighs, he’s been on the same routine for the past ten years, and his physique hasn’t changed since the first day he lifted a weight. Oh yeah, he still lives at home with his mommy. (Hopefully, you sense my sarcasm.)
The popular answers given to these questions by the self-proclaimed experts have created gym myths that are older than your grandmother’s wedding dress. These myths have been around for so long they’ve actually been accepted as truth. Below I’ve exposed ten of the most popular training myths and I’ve revealed the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth!
After reading my list, do yourself and your gym a favor: print out a copy of this article and discreetly leave it lying around your gym. Maybe, just maybe, one of the members or trainers will pick it up, read it and learn something. Hopefully, it’ll help them to open up their minds and they’ll finally learn the truth. This will make your gym a much happier (and more productive) place to train.

Triumph Strength & Athletics- Monsters
What’s more important when it comes to sports performance and success – to have an athlete with tons of raw talent, or an athlete with average skills but an insatiable yearning to be the best?
At every level of sports we see both if we look close enough – most teams have at least one athletically gifted player, and inevitably have at least one player with average skills but tons of “heart.” So, which player would you rather have on your team?
Before answering that question, I would like to bring up the even broader sports psychology question pertaining to the degree of athletic success that comes from sheer natural talent versus hard work and mental toughness? Ironically, this same question can be posed with academics as well – to what extent do “A” students get the grades due to genetics versus putting in the work?
The reality is that most successful people – be it athletes or students – achieve their success more from hard work than they do their natural talent. Read More
