5 Day Workout Program

cb-ttrecon-ebook-41For all those folks who want a 5 day per week workout program, I have good news for you. This week we’re going to look at the TT Reconstruction Program.

Plus, I have some big announcements for a big month.

Click here for this week’s podcast

1) Transformation #5 wraps up on August 18th…and a new contest will start August 31st.

2) We’ll soon have TT Kettlebell Workouts!

3) TT is going to Europe – Paris, Amsterdam, and Brussles, here we come!

So all that crazy stuff…and more to come this month.

But let’s get into our top transformation tip of the week.

Monday – August 3rd

Transformation Tip: Dream Big!

Kekich Credo #40: No dream is too big. It takes almost the same amount of time and energy to manage tiny projects or businesses as it does to manage massive ones…and the massive ones carry with them – proportional rewards.

Craig’s thoughts:
Your long term goals must include massive dreams. After all, the same steps will be taken to lose 50 pounds as will be for 5 pounds.

Dream big!

  • Ooh, you’re coming to Brussels! Got any activities planned there?

  • Justin Bosley

    Craig this looks awesome!! Definitely gonna buy it soon! Was wondering what: SHELC was?

    • SHELC is a Supine Hip Extension with Leg Curl. (Its a Cosgrove acronym)

      Lie on your back with your feet up on a stability ball, arms down by your side. Lift your hips off the ground which will create a straight line from your ankles to your shoulders. Keeping your hips off the ground, roll the ball in towards you by bending your knees and using your hamstrings.

      BONUS – for increased stability challenge move your arms so they are straight OUT to the sides. For the greatest stability demand put your hands behind your head. Then there is always bringing your arms across your body.

      • Justin Bosley

        Thanks! I actually noticed the video like 10 seconds after I posted this…had a dumb moment!!

  • Jules

    Hey Justin, SHELC stands for Supine Hip Extension Leg Curl. You can find out more info about it here (below):

      Hi Victoria,

      I hope you and Craig don’t mind if I offer a reply to your question…WYLIT refers to shoulder exercise formations using a stability ball.
