How To Get Strong In Prison

how to get strong in prisonLifting weights out there on the streets is a little different than in Prison. You got to make sure nobody going to choke you out while your lifting a bench press.

Check out how these cats show you “How to get strong in Prison”.

BULK UP
These lifters consume a lot of calories and bulk up in size. You may need to increase your weight to get stronger. Eating an extra portion of eggs and bacon is a good start.

Adding some bread to your diet will help you add weight. I know several athletes that drink a half gallon of milk a day to keep size on them.

LIFT HEAVY
Prison lifters lift heavy often. They pick up heavy stuff and put it back down. Check out the video below of several prison athletes lifting heavy.

DAILY DISCIPLINE
When you are in prison you have a lot of extra time on your hands. You can sit around and watch TV all day and get fat – or you can hit the weights and get strong. You might as well do something productive with your time.

EXTRA MOTIVATION
Prisoners psych themselves up to lift at a higher level. Watch the videos and see how they use breathing, body slaps, visualization, positive affirmations and shouting to move to a higher level.

SELF AWARENESS
In order to improve your life you must be able to master you mental strength. This means being in control of your physical, emotional and spiritual states. If something negative happens – how do you react? Do your dreams and goals align with your everyday actions and decisions? How do you show up in life? How do you view other people?

Answer: If you are a beginner then I suggest you check out: Jailhouse Strong by Josh Bryant and Adam BenShea (Amazon).
