So you're about to go to the first day of the gym, you've never been there before, so here you are, you are YouTubing and searching and googling everything you can about the best bench press, the best way to squat, the best way to do your dead-lifts. This is your biggest mistake you can ever do starting off this type of passion.

What's going on brother? My name is Kai, and if you have any questions for me, the best way to reach me is the link to my email. When it comes to guys who have never done any type of lifting.

Never gone to the gym ever before, the first thing that they do is googling the best way or YouTubing even, how to bench-press, how to squat, how to do this, how to do overhead presses, how do I get my biggest chest as much as possible, how to get those striations on my triceps, how do I get my traps to be by my ears, all that fun stuff.

Now, I get that, the logical part behind that is, I get it, they want to excel the best way possible. The best thing you can do though, honestly, just put on your shorts, put on your socks, put on your shoes, and just drive to the gym. That is the best pathway you can do. Because here's the thing, the thing that I noticed a lot about people, and I could clearly see it's their first time to the gym, they don't even know how to move their own body.

And I'm sure you've noticed that too, some guys who are pretty, you know, the veterans at the gym, you've seen new people before, they look like a wet noodle, honestly. And I'm not hating on them, but they're just not familiar with how their body works, because they've never done any type of physical activity before. So that's why just standing there, they have a poor posture, just doing a machine, they look like a wet noodle, they don't know how to move their body.

Why? Because they're not familiar with it at all. They don't know how to breathe, they don't know how to stand, they don't know how to grip. They don't know how to literally just walk to the frickin gym itself.  So the best thing, if you're completely brand new right now, that's totally awesome. I love the fact that you're actually looking for help. But the wrong way of doing it is looking for the best whatever.

The only thing you're trying to do right now, if you're completely brand new to the gym lifestyle, just go to the gym, be familiar with it, and don't even worry about the free weights, don't even worry about the Smith machines. The thing that you want to do, you want to be comfortable of going to the gym, you want to be familiar with it, how it looks, the layout, where the bathroom is, where the yoga mats are to stretch out. 

When it comes to the actual image of it, the aesthetics of it, even though it's a bulking agent, it doesn't aromatize, but I'll get to that in a minute when it comes to the post cycle therapy stuff, it doesn't aromatize.

Because here's the thing about completely brand new environments - when it comes to this, you are going to be intimidated. Why?

Because you don't know where anything is. You didn't know how to check in, you don't know where to stretch, you didn't know what to do first. So just go in there and be familiar with it. That is it. That is the only mission you want to do when it comes to getting into this type of lifestyle. And then after that, don't worry about the dumbbells, don't worry about the barbells, don't worry about any of that stuff, just do the machines.

Now you're probably thinking, do I do upper body? Do I do back? Do I stick with chest? What's the best split? No. Just go in there and try it all out. See how you turn on the treadmill. See how you turn on the StairMaster. How do I do the rowing machine? How do I switch the weights at the machines here and there? That's the only thing you're trying to do, you're trying to get familiar with the environment because that's the biggest intimidation factor with anybody, not being familiar with where they're at. 

Do not get bogged down with a five V five split, this type of strength type of program, this type of workout program, oh, I want to get to that type of sport, so I need to do this. No, don't get bogged down with any program at all. The only program you're trying to do is being familiar with your body. How does it feel like when you're stressed out by lifting the machines? 

How you're going to breathe in a particular way when you're intimidated by certain weights? How you're going to be with you're intimidated by the people all around you, because here's the thing, this is the one thing that people really refuse to admit because they want to feel like they are a good person. And I understand, most people are, but the natural way of how people are, when they look at you.

When they see you. when it's your first time at the gym, they are absolutely going to judge you, no matter how much people say, I don't judge anybody, I just go to the gym to work put by myself. That is not true, unless they literally blindfold themselves because that's what they're doing at the gym, when you're sitting there waiting for your sets to happen, when you just resting, when you look at somebody for the first time. 

It's only our natural instincts, our natural way we evolved to judge a person like that. What you can do in your end, let that happen. People are going to judge you, they're going to make their first time impression of you. Now, if you've had a sedentary lifestyle, you had a terrible lifestyle, you're fat, you're obese, that's the consequence of it. People are gonna judge you for who you are, and how you look. 

Your job now is to accept that and improve yourself. Don't believe this fairy tale story of oh people, they're going to mind their own business, they're going to mind their own business and they're gonna leave me alone. No, they're not. They're making a very first impression and judging you for how you look for the very first time. That is just part of life, get over it in a masculine way, and by improving yourself.

Because people are going to judge you. The only thing that you can control is how you feel about that and how you can move on. But view that in a positive way, because that's the thing, the moment you understand that, the moment you understand how people work, how social interactions work, so don't worry about that. Are people going to judge you in a negative way if you look terrible?

Of course they are. But that's part of life, who cares? Move on, improve yourself, use that as motivation man. There are consequences in life. That's how we have to face it. If I live a fat, obese type of lifestyle, I am going to receive the negative ends of it, because that's the consequence. There's nothing wrong with that, because there's always going to be rewards and consequences in life. 

So now in terms of the gym, don't worry about it, do your thing, move on, let people judge you for how you are, because here is the thing too - once you improve, once you have a better looking physique, guess what, they're going to judge you for who you are as well. Damn, look at this badass dude, holy crap, this guy's lifting heavy ass weights, because that's how it is. People are going to judge you for the negative things, they're also going to judge you for the positive things as well.

So back to my main point here, don't worry about the benchpress, don't worry about what Jay Cutler is doing, how Brandon Curry does his squats, how do I get really thick back like Kai Green? Don't worry about that. See how your body works, how it moves, how it breathe. Dude, I am so passionate about this stuff. Look, when I'm grabbing these dumbbells here, when I'm grab these, I want to know how it feels. 

I want to be familiar with it, so I am not intimidated by it, I want to know how these ridges feel and how it's going to give me calluses on my hands. That's how passionate I am man, I want to be so familiar with all this stuff here that I'm not intimidated by it anymore, at all. Now, one can argue that maybe you need a program so you don't pick up bad habits. Here's the thing about that. All that can be refined. 

The moment we really are familiar with our physique, how we breathe, how we move, how we're not intimidated by that environment, the moment we really want to know how to benchpress, say we do pick up bad habits, you're thinking that we're not gonna be able to unlearn that? We're not gonna be able to refine our technique? How to train our scapula? How to actually use your pectoral muscles and not your triceps or your anterior deltoid?

All that can be unlearned and actually be refined the moment we've earned, we've earned how to benchpress, we've earned how to squat. So don't get bogged down by any of these weightlifting programs about how this certain YouTuber benchpresses. Who cares dude, be familiar with your own body, be comfortable with it. And a bigger one, honestly, of all that, being comfortable with the environment. Some people don't view that, don't even see that, they don't even acknowledge it. But that's how it is.

You've noticed that yourself. Did you feel intimidated the very first time you went to a brand new restaurant, a brand new place, a brand new club? Why wouldn't that apply to the gym? It just some people don't have the courage to admit that they are intimidated by their environment. Because that's how we are man. That's how we evolved. Questions, email. Kai here, out, boom. Take care.
