The Strength Train of Success

The Strength Train of Success

By Dr. Rick Kattouf II


Goal: ‘I want to transform my body, lose body fat and get leaner.’

How to achieve this goal? Strength training is the key


Goal: ‘I want to improve my overall health & fitness.’

How to achieve this goal? Strength training is the key


Goal: ‘I want to improve my athletic performance.’

How to achieve this goal? Strength training is the key


As you can see, there is a common theme above and that is strength training. Yes, weight training is the key to success, no matter what your goals. And let’s debunk a myth that still exists, especially among women looking to lose weight. All too often, these individuals have the belief that weight lifting will get them bulky. What? Bulky? This makes absolutely no sense what so ever. There are only 2 things that will get you bulky; overeat and put on a lot of weight and body fat and you will get plenty bulky. And the other is to take anabolic agents.


C’mon, if your belief is that weight training will make your bulky, let’s drop this limiting belief today. Strength training will help assist in building muscle. Building muscle will help to burn fat. As you burn more fat, you will become leaner and lose weight. As you lose body fat and become leaner, your overall health & fitness will improve. And building muscle will help to improve power and strength. Which in turn, will help to assist in improving athletic performance. In addition, strength training will help to minimize risk of injury. As you can see, the benefits of strength training are endless.


When we strength train, we want to be sure we are consistent with the workouts each week, as this will greatly increase the benefits. Much like running; we cannot become a great runner if we run sporadically. Let’s focus on strength training at least 4 days per week. And we want to train the upper and lower body as this is critical for success.


Not exactly what to do for your strength training workouts? Or maybe you do not belong to a fitness center. Or maybe you are wanting to change up your current weight training routine. Let us help take the thinking out of this process for you and join the incredible LEANDOWN FITNESS® virtual gym. LEANDOWN FITNESS® has members from Spain, Italy, France, UK, Qatar and all around the USA. And the workouts are fun, challenging and amazingly productive.
