    Maximum Potential + Maximum Effort = Maximum Results

    My whole focus of my weightlifting is based on two things, to train as a warrior and to unleash an effort that I haven't unleashed since my younger days. I join this magazine to receive the advice of those who have succeeded in this field. Most of the successful people in this sport will tell you how they have gotten to where they are at but all will tell you two things and those two things are #1 it has to be in your gut and you don't be a success without lifting. I learned that will power and stay power will get you more powerful and sacrifice and dedication is the way to turn pain into pleasure. The most successful of all weightlifters are the one who have made the pain a pleasure and who never slack on their efforts. I will become a part of this great fraternity, this is why I write in these forums. A famous singer one time uttered the words," the road is rough and the going gets tough and love is a hurting thing. I need to travel this road and feel the pain that it takes to stay on this road and take the advice of those who have traveled this road because if love is a hurting thing, why do so many people seek that pain? The true pleasures in life are born out of pain and only those who are willing to endure the pain experience the pleasure of the gain. I will be one of you, for a new warrior has joined. My goal, lose a tremendous amount of fat and gain some incredible muscle and would be very appreciative of the advice I receive along the way

    Maximum Effort+ Maximum Effort = Maximum Effort Day 2

    Today Monday 10/10 I will make all my efforts as well as my dedication a 10. To have or to do maximum of anything you must be willing to exert yourself beyond the what is expected of you zone. The maximum man is how I would like to be known,the man who gives every inch and relishes every mile. Maximum effort comes from being one to surge, you must surge beyong the hurt and still give it your all with effort. The The Maximum man only travels in one direction and that is to his destination not away from it. The Maximum Man with the Maximum Potential who gives the Maximum Efforts and who sees the Maximum Results, that my friend is the true definition of The Iron Warrior. I will only quit when I cant do anything anymore

    And maximum risk. Where does Risk fit into your equation? Is this a concern of yours or do you think it should be a concern or at least worthy of a mention to those trying to achieve said goals, or do you think it is a given that as one nears maximums that injury is closer? I'm not being a debbie downer it's just something I talk about with alot of my clients and consultations.

    You've got to be young. How old are you? Been watching to much deadliest warrior?
    Grow up, you're not a warrior.
    Learn how to train safely and effectively. Understand how diet and rest are crucial for "Maximum Results"

    Lots of lovely superlatives in there but nothing really of any use to anybody. What exactly does your training look like, other than going in there with a lot of OOOOMPF

    Heck I've put in mediocre effort into lifting the past 12 years and I still like the way I look and feel and how much weight I can move in comparison to your average joe in the gym. Although I agree that effort is proportionate to results, you don't need to make brutal sacrifices and base your life around lifting to look and feel great.
    To speak before you think is like wiping your ass before you shit!

    That's pretty much me. Smarter not harder for me. Plus I just don't have time for injury I'm getting old and I'm natural. Self employed = limited insurance cushion.

    It's really about the injuries for me. You are not going to make progress if you're hurt not to mention life in general will suck.

    I work hard in the gym. Yesterday i worked really hard. BUT - i also just took a week off because of a back injury. I also sometimes call my workouts based on niggles than happen. I also spent 20 minutes warming up, and 35 minutes cooling down and stretching for a 50 minute workout.

    Working hard is one thing, working stupidly hard is another. There's a line between aggression in the gym and just throwing weights around. The latter you're risking injury.

    Your mentality in the gym should be one of cold precision - know what you have to do, figure out what you need to do in order to do that, prepare for it, and get it done.

    Maximum Effort+ Maximum Effort = Maximum Effort Day 3

    Thanks to all who replied, it was great to know that a lot of people within this group read what I had to say and offer some great opinion and advice but it is also part of my motivation to continue at the course that I set out and see how far that carries me. Yesterday at the gym I must say I recorded the maximum effort, from going to completion. The best part of my day was a triceps close bench at a weight that I thought was out of range and once I attempted I found out very quickly that it was in range. Today I again will train as the Maximum Man, to push a bit farther than I have been pushed, to train a littke harder that I have trained, that will be my logic for today. I have always calculated the risk but I also know that the bigger the risk the better the rewards. Today because of those great replies I am even more motivated to give that maximum effort because today I am feeling the maximum results from yesterday. the warrior in me marches on to the training arena and the man in me will exert the maximum effort.

    In the long run you will discover the hard way, that's its not worth it.

    Id rather work hard than smart..

    instead of trying to be some warrior.. just go do a good 5x5 routine like stronglifts 5x5, for a few months and see some major changes in yourself

    Maximum Effort+ Maximum Effort = Maximum Effort Day 4

    My day at the gym yesterday was one that I must say was very rewarding for me. I not only leaped some hurdles but I also pushed past some obstacles. One of the things that were most rewarding was a fellow gym mate of mine who not only has the work ethic but also has results that show, gave me the salute sign as I walked by and told me job well done on my previous work day. Today I have a few more obstacles that have been hindering my performance and I know that in order to be at my max I must maneuver beyond these as well. I will do my current schedule on a 6 week basis and then I will analyze my performances as well as the changes that have occurred and in the next 6 weeks work on improving and building that which needs the most attention. While visiting the favorite’s page on my internet provider I came across a site that was about getting lean military style, the thing that I liked about it was that it included after workout meals and it is something that I will use as a planner. Cardio is my next biggest challenge, I must return to my 2 mile very early morning walks, and in my nutrition my maximum effort will be practicing the will power and knowledge method, to exhibit the will power to exclude in my daily eating the things that are least beneficial and pursue the knowledge in learning the proper foods to eat to fuel the maximum potential needed to pursue my direction.
