Three people I highly respect and listen to when it comes to being healthy
(strong, slim, quick, a twinkle in the eye, and an anti-aged look) are
Andrea DuCane, Geoff Neupert, and Dr. John Sullivan.
They all three agree on one critical thing about working out (if you want
strength, fat loss, quickness, a twinkle in the eye and an anti-aged look):
don’t over do it.
20 minutes with your bells or bodyweight or both will do more for you than
longer workouts that have you feel like you were run over a truck. These
longer sessions actually accelerate aging and mess with your hormones (so
Here are 13 benefits to short, purposeful 20 minute workouts:
-Improves sexual function
-Changes in gene expression (like reversing the “obese” gene, etc.)
-A Sharper Brain
-Fewer Migraines (or frequent to ZERO in my case)
-More cheerful disposition
-More time to do other stuff (like time with loved ones)
-More time to rest and recover (just as important as exercising for fat loss
and building strength)
-Money saved from spending less on items pertaining to improving some of the
My own trial and error over the years has been confirmed the advice of these
A few years back I got in the groove with 20 minute workouts.
I basically did 10 minutes of swings, rest a minute or two, then 10 minutes
of TGUs three times per week.
I did this for somewhere between 1 and 2 months.
Got an email from someone selling hormone products (testosterone) and the
benefits of taking these hormone enhancers.
Reading down the list of benefits in this email (hard to remember – but
probably similar to the one above) and thinking:
“I already have all of those.”
Not only that, but at the time I wanted a “mutant” secret service snatch
test score (As many snatches as you can in 10 minutes, men use a 53 pound
bell, women a 16kg). Anything “Secret Service” is cool in my book.
After a few months of these 20 minute workouts (used a 24kg, 32kg or 40 kg
bell depending on the day), picked up the 24kg, set the timer, and clocked
in 240 reps in the SSST…massive PR that far exceeded my expectations.
20 minutes: not too much, not too little: just right.
Your strength and conditioning…in addition to the more important stuff
listed above…will improve, perhaps even drastically.
That’s why I was absolutely thrilled when I saw that someone who really
understood the science behind these short yet jaw droppingly effective
workouts mapped out OVER 90 PROGRAMS just for you
- figure out what your goal is, what kind of bells you have to use – and
plug in your program. Your program will dictate what you do for the next
month or two.
Its like buying seeds from the store…you plant them and enjoy the fruits.
Have a Master RKC get you your seeds.
That’s 1,656 workouts. In your private file.
You won’t do all of them, but you will find one or two that you really like.
I’m halfway done with my second one.
If Geoff charged 50 cents a workout that would come to $828.00. I wonder
how much time it took to come up with all of these.
You’ll be surprised how simple these programs are. Usually based around two
or three exercises.
