HOLD THE ROPE!

Every year we have transformation contests in which the transformation contestants are recognized for their achievement in staying committed to their fitness goals. All these contestants have one thing in common. No matter how tough it became throughout their transformation, they did one thing — they held the rope!  What is “holding the rope?” Imagine that you are hanging from the edge of a cliff with a drop of twenty thousand feet. The only thing between you and a fall to your death is a rope, with the person of your choice on the other end. That person on the other end is the AGR system which includes our awesome community members.  When the going gets tough, you can rest assured that we have the guts to pull you to safety.  Whether it be a clarification with nutrition or a mental stumbling block which is overcome by encouragement, motivation, and/or AGR coaching.   Rest assured, all you have to do is “Hold The Rope!” You see, the person that holds the rope when the going gets tough is a winner. When you’ve had a long day at work and choose to go to the gym afterwards that is a “winning” decision.  If you are frustrated and have lost the willpower to track your calories come and visit with some of the members in the AGR community. In a matter of speaking, they will tell you they have been where you are, just “hold the rope — let it burn but don’t let go!” Win or lose, remember that your transformation is a personal achievement and you should be very proud of your accomplishment. In a previous post, I discussed the Four Key Ingredient necessary in order to become “Photo-Shoot Ready” on command. Those ingredients are: 1. Conditioning 2. Posing 3. Tanning 4. Photography/Lighting Keeping these concepts in mind will help you capture some amazing images of your new & improved physique. In conclusion, to all my brothers in Iron, I hope you’re enjoying living the Adonis Lifestyle and to those contestants in AT19, come April 11th, I look forward to congratulating you on your transformation!

The Hierarchy of Diet and Fitness Needs; Redefining the Fitness Pyramid

Here’s the next episode of the UNCENSORED Podcasts Season 2.

Today’s topic:  The Hierarchy of Diet and Fitness needs; Redefining the Fitness Pyramid

 

Evaluating The The Hierarchy of Diet & Fitness means; Redefining your Personal Fitness Pyramid

When it comes to establishing “The Hierarchy of Diet &Fitness” one must first redefine their own “personal” fitness pyramid.

 

John and Brad discuss how to look at your health and fitness needs.  Nutrition, supplements, ability to lose fat, ability to gain muscle, and ability to train are all interrelated.  It all works together.  Small things effect other things and then can escalate to hinder your goals.

In today’s UNCENSORED training, you will also discover:

  • How to identify inhibitors
  • The difference between “effort” & “exhaustion” when training in the gym
  • How to mitigate and avoid stress
  • Determining the best time to workout
  • How to train through an injury and adopt a recovery strategy
  • Identify which supplements will work for you

In conclusion, when it comes to establishing “The Hierarchy of Diet &Fitness” one must first redefine their own “personal” fitness pyramid.

Did Adonis Save Me From Public Humiliation?

Brad Pilon half Naked

Me around my 31st birthday

Tuesday was my first time on National TV. Hopefully it won’t be my last.

It was fast and furious. My 5 minutes of fame felt like lasted it 30 seconds.

I was on a show that was notorious for absolutely destroying “fad diets”. They used all the classic techniques: having an expert panel that ignored scientific consensus, cherry picked research, and used classic vague definitions of the ‘right’ way to eat.

The two authors who went on before me were absolutely DESTROYED on live television. When they came back to the green room they were pale, sweating and visibly upset.

To use a cliché – The doctor and the dietitian on the expert panel ate these people for breakfast.

But my time in the spotlight was a little different.

Sure the expert panel was combative, but if you watch the tape you will notice something – they were definitely easy on me, much easier than the other diets. Not only that, but someone who studies human behavior might even say that their body language suggested that they actually liked me.

For the most part the show was a success. A small win for the Eat Stop Eat lifestyle. And a win that I owe a large thanks to the Adonis Index for helping to make it happen.

Don’t get me wrong; I was prepared and confident. And the fact that Eat Stop Eat is not a fad and is supported by some amazingly consistent research helped a lot. But, it was the first impressions that saved me.

Put simply, I was taken seriously, and well, they liked me.

From the moment I walked into the green room I knew that it was going to turn out all right. I don’t mean for this to sound arrogant, cocky or pretentious, but from the first moment I scanned the room, I knew I was getting the right kind of attention.

I can only imagine what would have happened if I didn’t train to improve my AI.

Would they have taken me seriously if, while in the green room, they saw 20 inch arms?

NO.

Coming from the world of sports supplements, I can tell you that even bodybuilding companies don’t take bodybuilders seriously.

Would they have believed my theories if I was 30 pounds heavier? Probably not. Even if this extra weight was mostly muscle it would not have mattered. To the untrained eye, heavy is heavy – And nobody wants diet advice from someone who is overweight.

If I had been skinny, then the argument that fasting causes muscle loss would not have gone so well for me. I would have looked like just another pencil-necked-geek-know-it-all.

The bottom line was that from the moment I walked on set, I had a good rapport with the people involved. Even after my 5 minutes of fame, I was laughing and joking with the dietitian and medical doctor back stage (as well as the women who ran the behind the scenes part of the show).

Your physical appearance sells your story. No matter how ‘unfair’ that sounds, it is the truth.
