Intro

90 Days to Diesel Fitness Program

  • This is Alexander and Josiah’s new three-month weightlifting program which teaches how progressive overload works on a week-to-week basis, and how long-term strength gains correspond to mass gains
    • The program, mainly developed for guys struggling to add muscle, involves 4 days/week of lifting, with 60-75 minute workouts
  • The program also includes:
    • An exercise guide which dictates the top-5 most effective mass-building movements for every muscle group
    • A diet guide for mass gain
    • A recipe section with tons of high-protein meals
  • “The basic principle is patience, progressive overload, and not being a dumba**—not maxing out. It’s putting the reps in, and that applies to literally every f**king muscle group and exercise. It’s a great workout, without needing to put a lot of hours in.” – Alexander Cortes

The Rules of Social Media

  • Tailor your social media experience to focus on sites that have a positive impact on your life
  • On social media, seek ascendant relationships with people who have high standards of excellence
    • Avoid descendent relationships – relationships with people who refuse to change, who have tons of bad habits, and don’t like when you start trying to improve yourself
  • 99% of the time, ignore online bickering
    • Always remember: Bullsh*t drags you down
  • People often criticize others for something they themselves are insecure about
  • Some people like to see others fail—it gives them a bite-sized piece of satisfaction” – Alexander Cortes
    • The greatest accomplishment for some is contributing to the downfall of someone else

Social Hyper-Sensitivity

  • Society’s IQ has gone backward – it’s become politically incorrect to express opinions because “someone might get hurt
  • Pretending to tolerate all ideas but only tolerating those you agree with is hypocrisy, not inclusion

The News Media Bias

  • Mainstream media is mostly progressive/liberal—they have their own agenda
    • For instance, as an outsider in 2015, the media attacked Trump. During the Obama years, there homelessness and unemployment were plenty, yet the media went easy on him.
  • In the 1990’s, people were judged by character; now everyone’s judged based on who they voted for
  • The media has created a mob culture: We accuse everyone of being guilty before investigating

Society Needs More Masculine Men

  • “If you want to change the future, you have to create masculine men”Alexander Cortes
    • The world has tipped toward yin (feminine) energy and needs more yang (masculine) energy
  • Women crave dominance and assertion
    • In other countries (not so much in the U.S. anymore), women expect men to be strong, assertive and sexual
  • Pro-masculine men:
    • Make money
    • Are fit
    • Are positive
    • Have great relationships with women
    • Take no shit
    • Live their life their way
  • Josh says he often hears women say: “I wish there were more masculine men”
  • The problem with modern-day Disney movies is that the woman is often the hero, while the man is the butt of the joke
