The Pick 5 Master 5 Challenge was inspired by the 2-list system created by Warren Buffet.
Warren Buffet is financially one of the most successful people on the planet. Here is a brief overview of his two-list system. You write down 25 things you want to achieve in life, circle the top 5, and then avoid the other 20 until the top 5 are finished. I decided to apply that system to my fitness goals. Picking a routine to master is tough for a person who is new to the gym, and even tougher for a person who is a veteran there. There are literally millions of exercises and workouts that can get you to your fitness goal, so picking a set routine is nearly impossible without a trainer doing it for you.
The Pick 5 Master 5 method is basically picking 5 exercises, setting a goal for all 5 exercises, and mastering them. I will tell you how to master them a little later. The Pick 5, Master 5 process will make it so much easier for you to meet your goals in the gym and it will help you reach your dream fitness level.
The Method to the Madness
I know you are wondering why only 5 exercises? Well five exercises are easy to focus on, and they are easy to perfect. When you have a workout that has 45 exercises in it, and you must track your progress on all exercises, you will be spending more time doing data entry then training. Shortening your entire workout program to only 5 exercises will help you get unbelievable results. You will notice immediate strength gains because you only have a few areas to work on. Take on the mindset of a professional athlete that gets paid millions of dollars to do one thing. This one thing could be shooting a basketball, throwing a football, or running 100 meters as fast as possible. That athlete’s job is to perfect one thing and that is the skill he, or she is getting paid to perform. The Pick 5 Master 5 method uses the same concept. Your workout should be driven by one goal, and that goal should be to perfect all the exercises you need to perfect to build the body you want. You may not be making millions to master push ups, but I guarantee you will feel more accomplished knowing that you can walk in the gym and pick up the heaviest weight in there without hesitation.
