Phase 4 Kill Mode
They say as a navy seal enters week 4 of phase one called, ” Hell Week” it is meant to weed out who’s got it and who doesn’t.
This month at the gym is dubbed phase 4 kill mode for those who are ready to attack their workouts and put the finishing touches on all the hard work from winter conditioning.
Those who have trained throughout the winter are now reaping the benefits that the spring and summer now offer.
It’s a year long process to get to this point!
Training the spirit, mind and body is a daily cleansing process that a person should go through year round to maintain balance.
Any negative feeling during this process is no good and is keeping you from achieving great results in the gym and life.
Phase 4 kill mode is designed to take all limiting beliefs and crush them!
Building strength, athleticism as well as adding muscle mass are the goals.
Suns out guns out
Phase 4 kill mode has to do with a lot of outdoor training. After being inside all winter your body is lacking from a very important vitamin.
Research shows that vitamin D from the sun stimulates certain hormones in your body that allow the body to function properly. This vitamin also can cause a decrease in cancer.
Too much is no good as we all know from sun burn. Balance is the key wile in phase 4 kill mode so it’s always smart to use common sense with the sun.
Blood warmed from the sun also gives you tremendous mobility compared to training in the cold. The more mobile you are the more range of motion you will have.
Athletes will perform better and have better gains in moderate to warm weather which is why I choose to get outside as soon as possible. The warmer weather does wonders for the body.
It’s only natural for your body to constrict during the colder months, but during the warmer you actually do whats called vasodilatation and become open to perform more efficiently which will give you better results in theory.
If you think about it the planet and all the living things in it work the same way. Constrict during the winter and open up during the spring.
Training outside also gives you freedom to move in all angles of motion as well as breath in the fresh air. Critical!
Phase 4 kill mode
Digging a little deeper into the actual training methods and workout sessions that are done this month it’s important to always focus on what you visually want to get out of your workouts before you start them.
They say that a solider will rehearse how to move through the chaos of war in training!
The same goes when going through battle in the gym. Staying on point and focused is the key. Keep your mind on the outcome and stay away from getting side tracked by what may be going on around you.
It is said that great performers have a way of looking through a tough situation and seeing the outcome regardless of what lies before you.
The iron will humble you, but stay on point with you’re training and keep moving forward. Mental toughness is built by doing whats hard! You’re working against resistance so it’s supposed to be tough.
If you see a few exercises that you want to try give them a whirl. Start with light weights until you feel confident in your abilities then move up a little.
During this workout I used dumbbells, chains, bodyweight movements and my trusty tire for conditioning near the end of the workout. A lot of drags in phase 4 kill mode!
Weapons Of Mass Construction
We have arrived into an age where more and more people will start to understand that the primary weapon system (as what I like to call it) will change a person forever.
I’ve learned to use these systems over time with an implantation into the weight room!
There was a time before the understanding of this system that training was different. I felt burnt out and unmotivated.
The mind is a powerful weapon!
Combine all three and become unstoppable.
