Get Fractional Plates

Get Micro Fractional Weight Plates Here

Fractional plates added to your barbell every workout can help you quickly reach the next level and overcome plateaus.

You can get stronger faster by adding fractional plates or what some call micro weight plates to your lifts each workout.

One of the reasons that so many weightlifters plateau in strength in the gym is because they set their goals too high by wanting to make constant increases in weight that are too lofty or by trying to increase their strength just by adding more reps.

Most trainers will stay with a given weight until they hit the upper threshold of the rep range they are working on.

Simply by adding a single rep to an exercise increases a predicted one rep max by 3% approximately. This is where the problem lies. A 3% increase is pretty ambitious and it’s nearly impossible to maintain that rate of increase regularly.

One of the reasons I recommend adding micro weight plates of 1.5 – 2.5 lb. every workout is because you can continue making increases of higher percentages while gaining more muscular/ tendon power necessary for constant increases.

Fractional Plates


By simply increasing your lifts 3 to 5 pounds every workout in at least one of the sets not only gives you more muscular strength all around but also gives you the confidence to continue moving forward with enthusiasm more regularly.

Fractional Plates Can Increase Your Strength In Less Time

I personally have a set of 1/4, 1/2 and 1 lbs place that I carry to the gym when I’m not working out at home. This allows you to increase your total weight by 0.5 – 3.5 lbs In one or all of your sets every workout.

Trying to just add more reps instead of more weight increases your endurance instead of your strength. Most gyms have plates no smaller than 5 lbs and by putting one of those on each side of your barbell equals 10 lbs obviously. Expecting your body to be able to lift 10 lbs more each workout or even every other workout is usually far too ambitious for most and can be downright discouraging when you fail.

Try adding fractional plates to your barbell every workout for maximum strength in a lot less time. You’ll be amazed how great it feels to see these small increases added up that not only build up your confidence but your overall strength in a shorter time.

Believe me your strength will shoot through the roof when you begin adding fractional plates to your barbell for every one of your workouts.

Try it and let me know what you think!

How To Run Faster By Inspired Action

How to run faster and/or be faster in other areas are at the top of my list of questions readers write in to ask about besides how to build strength fast.


Usain Bolt

First, mindset is extremely important before implementing any particular training exercises whether you want to get stronger fast or lose weight.

So, if you want to know how to run faster, try using these simple mind hacks…

Instead of trying to beat a stopwatch or another competitor, start training with the mindset I describe below and see just how quickly this amps up your speed in comparison. I do this all the time myself and the results are incredible.

How To Get Faster By What You See, Hear, And Feel

What we see, hear, and feel all affect us all deeply.

There’s no doubt that the images in our minds affect our actions profoundly. There’s no doubt that the words and music we hear affect our actions immensely.

There’s also no doubt that what we see and hear in our minds and hearts affect our emotions intensely.

So, when the pictures in your mind are amplified and congruent with what you hear through via your ears and activate your emotions on a real visceral instead of just intellectual level, they either empower you greatly or disempower your strength and speed significantly.

Your choice of music and imagery when you’re training can be one of the most empowering forces you can use to aid you in getting stronger and faster.

Mind Hack to How To Get Faster

As a shortcut for combining empowering imagery and feeling to fuse together to ignite more powerful commands to my entire musculature, I often listen to movie soundtracks when I’m training.

I have hundreds of movie soundtracks on my various playlists. I have every song categorized for the intended energy and power I want to achieve.

Do you have separate music playlists to optimize you for:

  • Increasing Energy
  • Getting Stronger Fast
  • Generating Faster Speed
  • Effortless Endurance
  • Etc.

I suggest you start thinking about this right away if you really want to know how to get faster, or strong, have more energy, or endurance.

Think of one of your favorite action movies and an particularly inspiring scene where you felt your blood rushing through your veins fast even though you were sitting perfectly still in your movie seat.

Close your eyes for a second and imagine the movie and how the music deeply affected your emotions. Now imagine yourself training in the gym and trying to amp up your speed.

Depending on the details of the action scenes you remember seeing along with the  music you hearing in your mind, they might be inducing conflicting commands to your entire musculature if you’re trying to understand how to get faster.

Are Imagery and Songs to Run
To Making you Faster or Slower?

Here’s what I mean. For instance, if you hear and see triumphant pictures, actions, music, and sounds effects of perhaps a roman legion marching into battle, and it all inspires feelings of valor, this will certainly motivate you to move with more ponderous force, which is great for lifting more weight or being relentless in your quest.

But, all these combined forces won’t necessarily allow you to move with greater speed simply because the picture and sounds of thousands of soldiers moving across the battlefield corresponds precisely to slower ponderous sounds sequenced to a slower musical beat.

So, I ask you, is this picture and music tempo really going to inspire optimal speed? Probably not. So, why not completely optimize your speed training on every level if that’s what you really want!

Choosing a hip hop or rap song might make you want to dance hard and lift more weight with perhaps a picture in your head of being a faux movie gangster, but does it really inspire the most empowering muscular synapses and movements that will help you run faster or strike faster than lightning?

Again, probably not.

So Think About This If You Want To
Know How To Get Faster

Instead of continuing to use a music playlist of cool songs that you just like, think about the intention behind the workout that you’re about to do first.

Then, create a playlist of songs so, if it’s faster speed you want, choose music and imagery from a movie soundtrack where you immediately see, hear, and feel incredible speed in your mind so it can automatically catapult every cell in your musculature to ignite great speed.

Here’s something I use to that immediately gets me running faster than I ever would without it…

If you watched the movie 10,000 BC, there are some incredible scenes in prehistoric times of hunters trying to take down a woolly mammoth and it starts aggressively going after them.

What If This Were Chasing You?

Would you dig deep and find a way how to run faster if a wooly mammoth were chasing you trying to stomp you into the earth?! You Bet!

You need to do different things and think differently, if you want better results. Otherwise, you shouldn't expect different results. Make sense?

So, if you're not getting the results you want, be open to new suggestions and take quick action if you want quick results andMammoth feedback.

If you're not getting the speed you want while listening to cool pulsating hip hop or rap music where the only imagery that immediately comes to mind is you in a club hoping someone will notice your awesomeness, try putting on a sound track from a movie like 10,000 BC where blood pumping scenes immediately flood your mind with mammoths and saber tooth tigers chasing your ass because you're their dinner. 

When you feel the music that goes with this imagery of trying to get away from a gigantic prehistoric mammoth, believe me, those FEELINGS will inspire untapped resources throughout your entire musculature that will enable you to run much faster. 

Your Music And Imagery Should Give You
The FEELING Of Strength And Speed

Instead of intellectualizing how to fun faster like, the music and imagery should induce FEELING how fast you’d be “inspired” to run if a gigantic prehistoric mammoth were chasing your ass! Dang!

Imagine that while you’re running to escape from it’s massive steps, you flashing across an open plain gets the attention of a saber toot tiger and it begins in the chase also.

Picture it leaping ferociously at you as you frantically jump over creeks and boulders with the longest strides you can manage.

But still, the saber tooth tiger is gaining on you. How do you Feel at this moment?

What You Feel And See In
Your Mind’s Eye Will Make You Faster

Every few seconds, as you can almost smell and feel the saber tooth tiger’s hot breath on your back, it snaps at you trying to take out big chunks of your hamstrings with it’s enormous dagger-like to get faster

Now, ask yourself, would you be running faster thinking and hearing music like this?

Would the idea that each snap of the saber tooth tiger’s jaw activate you to run faster?

Well, if the answer is a resounding YES, then if you want to learn how to get faster, use music and imagery that will inspire your most empowering emotions and make separate playlists for every workout you do.

Bottom line: Create separate playlists for every training session with your intention and end outcome very clear in your mind’s eye. Do this and watch your speed, strength, endurance, productivity soar to new horizons!

Train hard – and train inspired!
