Ever noticed how sporting teams has success over a long period of time? The players change but the results stays them same. They have a great system. How does that relate to exercise?
If you go into gym and just do a series of random trainings, then that'S what your results will be ... random. However if you follow your plan or 'system' that has the basic body movements of pushing, pulling, squatting and hinging or 'old school' training your results wil not be random. They will be awesome.

Small bites 'trick' your brain into believing you are eating more food. According to Dieuwerke Bolhuis, who studies food research at Wageningen University in the Netherlands, the more bites you take, the brains 'taste' system is activated and the more 'full' you feel.
Food for thought next time you are chowing down on chips and dip. Take smaller bites. Have a smaller waistline. Easy right?

Now i have your attention. Don't blame your training program for your lack of results. Ask your self these series of questions before you make a change
1. Are you being consistent?
2. Sleeping enough?
3. Eating clean?
4. Are you putting in the effort? Just showing up will not get it done.
Be honest. Small" tweaks" can lead to better results. Change the small things before you change the 'big' things.

Use this at the end of your training today to empty the tank or a stand alone training if you lack time to get the gym. Can be done anywhere. Enjoy
Your circuit looks like this:
1. Body-Weight Squat: Do 9 reps
2. Pushup: Do 9 reps
3. Jumping Jacks: Do 9 reps
That's one round. Your pace is determined by your fitness: You can rest as needed between each exercise—simply go by "feel."
Do a total of 9 rounds. Try to complete the entire workout in 9 minutes or less.
