"I Don't Have Time to Train"
Many times I hear this excuse from people who do absolutely no exercise at all. They say they have no time to train. They feel and look terrible yet they have no intentions of doing anything about it.
I was at the park doing some sprints a few days ago and saw a guy there pushing his kids on the swings. When they got off the swings and went to play on something else the guy, in his mid forties, went over to the chin up bar and attempted to do a single rep.
He couldn't even get half way up!
A grown man who couldn't do a single chin up...What a disgrace. The sad thing is that I have seen this exact scenario at least a dozen times at the park.
How can you even consider yourself a man? What would you do if you ever had to defend or protect your wife or kids?
How can you look yourself in the mirror and live with yourself if you are in that kind of shape and that pathetically weak?
The excuse of not having enough time is a lame one. No matter how much you work and how many responsibilities you have, there is always time to exercise.
The problem is that most people think an efficient workout has to last an hour or two. This is complete BS. Often times I will train for no more than 20-30 minutes on a very busy day. If you can honestly tell me that you don't have 20-30 minutes per day for exercise, you need to take a serious look at your life and your priorities.
An efficient strength training workout can be accomplished with as few as two or three exercises and be completed in as little as twenty minutes. Just by making time each day to do that small amount of exercise, you will feel ten times better.
The workouts in Muscle Gaining Secrets all average about 35 minutes but if you are pressed for time they can be shortened to meet your schedule.
Don't think that if you don't have at least 4-6 hours a week, it's worthless to do anything at all. Nothing could be further from the truth.
