The legs feed the wolf

A success tale from a beginner in our Crew…

Ken is having a ton of success strengthening his entire body by tweaking one thing…

Instead of forcing himself to train harder with the “more, more, more” mentality, he has been giving himself a simple daily goal that continually expands into something bigger with very little mental effort.

Here’s what I mean: instead of trying to bust out a long workout, he sets a minimum goal to do 25 squats per day.

Sounds easy, right?

Depending upon how you spread that out, it could just be a few squats every hour.

But it’s no joke.

A “minimum goal” is a get-started-now-with-no-excuses goal.

You can’t spew out the “I don’t have time” BS when you can accomplish your goal in 30 seconds.

So, you bust out a set of squats.

And you think you’re finished.


….something magical happens AFTER the set.

Your brain releases neurotransmitters that make you want to do another set, and another, and another.

So, the minimum goal of 5 reps eventually transforms into sets that add up to 100+ reps or more.

As for Ken – he’s now been doing 200+ squats most days.

But it gets even better…

One day he noticed that his strength increased on other exercises.

For example, even though he hadn’t worked on reverse-pushups, he discovered he could do 15 reps.

How could that be?

To quote Herb Brooks (1980 USA Gold-Winning Hockey Coach), “The legs feed the wolf.”


The legs are feeding the wolf.

That is why all the programs you find in the 18STRONG Membership have a steady dose of leg exercises.

If our programs aren’t for you, and you do go off script, be sure to set a minimum goal for your squats.

Even a super simple goal of doing ONE repetition is enough to get some people going.

Once you’re in motion, it’s harder to stop than you might think.

I highly recommend you start your 7-day free 18STRONG Membership trial today.

And we’ll get the party started together.
