You know what you want. You’re tired of being out of shape, feeling like crap, looking in the mirror every morning and every night and not liking the body you see.
It’s depressing. It makes you feel like a failure. But that can all change. You can stop feeling like a failure whenever you want. How about now?
What you want is pretty simple: a better body. Sounds pretty shallow and narcissistic to some people. But it’s way more than that. It’s not just about looking good. It’s about how having a better body and being in shape affects all other areas of your life.
When you’re in shape, you’re more confident. You feel better. You have more energy. You’re able to do things physically that you can’t do when you’re out of shape.
When you’re in shape, you’re a better version of yourself. That’s a fact. When you’re in shape, you’re a better father, a better husband, a better brother, a better son. Or, a better mother, a better wife, a better sister, a better daughter.
What do you want? Do you want to be just another out-of-shape guy or gal at the neighborhood pool this summer? Or do you want to be shredded and make your neighbors say, “Damn, that guy is jacked!” Or for the ladies, “Wow, she looks amazing.”
If you want that, you can have it.
Do you have 5 hours a week (give or take) you can spare to get your ass in the gym and train over the next 12 weeks? Yes, you do. If you say you don’t, it’s because you don’t really want it. But you want it. You know it, we all know it.
You’ll find the 5 hours. It’s there, every week. And 12 weeks is nothing. It’ll fly by, gone before you know it. And if you didn’t put in the work during that 12 weeks, you’ll regret it. You’ll be pissed at yourself, yet again. That doesn’t need to happen. You have the time. You’ll find it.
Only thing that’s missing is the plan. You’ve tried a bunch of different programs and workouts and none of them quite did the job. You don’t lack motivation or drive or desire. Maybe you just lack direction. I just want someone to tell me exactly what to do, you say.
Perfect. That’s the easy part. That’s Jim Stoppani’s wheelhouse. He makes a living telling people who really want it exactly what to do.
His latest version of that is Project X. 12 weeks. 5 days a week in the gym. This ain’t rocket science, just exercise science. Follow the plan, put in the work, and get what you want.
