Hi guys and girls, Gert Louw from Cape Town.

Every year just after my birthday it is sort of a tradition for me to do a flexing and inspirational video.

This year it was my 52nd birthday.

So here is the video just after my birthday:

Click here to view video “Life INSPIRATION at age 52”

 

With this video I want to inspire a little.

Neither your age, nor your health should ever (!) stand in your way.

Now, most of you know by now that 12 years ago I nearly died and doctors did not give me any good news. But with faith I moved forward and apply healthy living on all levels and also did some house cleaning and moving closer to God ( I am a follower of Jesus Christ).

Obviously it was a long and hard road and the body took long to respond to this healthy living but the wheel did turn and it is keeping on turning as a result.

Now, I am not naïve in thinking everyone with serious health issues can and will turn around like I did, but what I do believe is that with faith in God and by living very healthy, one CAN make a huge difference. Obviously you need your doctor’s approval to embark on such a journey.

But, let me share with you the core of my healthy living

My training program is as follows:

  • Mondays – Chest, Biceps and abs
  • Tuesdays – Shoulders, Traps and calves
  • Wednesdays – rest
  • Thursdays – Back, triceps and abs
  • Fridays – Legs, upper pecs and calves
  • Saturdays & Sundays – rest

 

My supplement regime

Health supplements:

  • ALA (Alpha Lipoic Acid)
  • CQ10 (Co Enzyme Q10)
  • Omega 3+6
  • Strong Multi Vitamin
  • Slow release Vit C

Muscle building supplements:

  • Whey protein powder
  • L-Glutamine
  • BCAA

 

How do I structure my training?

I do a 3-months Cutting phase with a very specific cutting phase diet and training with lighter weights at a higher rep range followed by 1 week rest and then a 3-month building phase with a very specific building phase diet and training with heavier weights to absolute muscle failure at lower reps (about 8 reps per set) followed by 1 week rest and the repeat.

This allow me to build muscle but also to recover the strained tendons and joints.

 

About my diets

I make use of one of the top fitness nutritionists in the field (BERNADETTE BEYER) to work out my diets for each phase according to my bodytype and goals. This is the crucial part of your success and without a very focussed diet there will be no success.

My blog contains a LOT of info for free that can help you through all these processes.

But for those interested, I also offer my exact training/supplem and diet system via the ADVANCED SYSTEM II (option E). The same nutritionist I use will also work out your diet solution and I myself attend to working out your training and supplement attack based. If you want to signup, just choose option E via the following link: https://gertlouw.com/contact-me

Now, everyone…happy training!

Cheers

CHANGE YOUR THOUGHTS AND YOU’LL CHANGE YOUR WORLD

 

Click here to watch video “LIFE inspiration – changing your thoughts”

 

When you wake up in the morning, what is the first thought entering your mind?

  • “I wanna stay in bed”
  • “I can’t face this day”
  • “My body aches sooo much”
  • “Life sucks”
  • “I hate my wife/husband”

Now I am sorry to tell you this, but you are right! The thoughts you entertain in your head is what will make and shape you.

Take the same scenario waking up but instead the thoughts you entertain are:

  • “What a beautiful day!”
  • “Today I am going to get closer to my dream.”
  • “I am so blessed!”
  • “Life is beautiful”
  • “Today I will show my loved one I care about him/her”

If you entertain these thoughts, this is what you will become – a positive person with a lust for life that wants to make the world a better place and see the beauty in all.

Our thoughts make or break us. They shapes us into what we become eventually. What is in your heart will be in your actions.

The wonder is that you have FULL control over your thoughts. You decide which thought you are going to entertain and from that thought will spring eventually good or bad, life or death, beauty or disgrace. You have been given the power to control your mind and your thoughts.

But how do I control my thoughts?

When a negative thought enters, put it out with a positive one and entertain the positive one to the fullest. If you continue to do this, your mind will learn to eventually entertain just positive thoughts. As with everything in life, if you do not train something, it won’t get stronger. Like a muscle, the brain and thought patterns must be trained. You need to actively train your mind continuously in this fashion to focus and concentrate on the positive thoughts. Those that apply this wisdom will rise above the rest, and yes, they will look happy and blissfull to the rest because of their positive thought patterns!

This will also become an amazing tool when you want to transform your body and you want to reach for the dream that dances in your head.

We have one life, live it to the fullest.

A beautiful verse in the Bible sums this up perfectly:

Proverbs 4:23 – Watch over your heart with all diligence, For from it flow the springs of life.

 

Wish you all happy training!

Cheers
