Lee Labrada’s Secrets for Creating a New You

Let’s face it: there’s never been a more perfect time in our lifetime to take action and get into amazing shape. With all of the information that we have on how to get in shape there is no excuse for not doing so. Throw your “excuses” out the window. You CAN make it happen. It’s now or never!

With this in mind, here’s a question for you: By this time next year-what has to happen in your life for you to feel excited about your physique progress?


Take a moment to think about this question in detail. It’s really important. One thing that has to happen (since you are reading this website), by this time next year, is for you to be in better shape-with more muscle and less body fat than ever.

Am I right? You may have even made a New Year’s resolution to start training more intensely, feed your body with only quality foods everyday, and start taking your nutritional supplements. Was this the same New Year’s resolution you made LAST year? If you got into great shape… and stayed in great shape last year, congratulations! But if you didn’t, why didn’t things work out for you?

Perhaps you didn’t have enough time… or maybe you were confused about what to do… or maybe you got poor results from half-hearted efforts…or maybe you lacked motivation or energy while battling one of life’s unavoidable “curve balls.”

In a nutshell, perhaps you just got “off track.” I’m not trying to bring you down…

You see, the point I want to “hit home” with you today is that unless you change your “plan of attack” you’re going to end up with exactly the same results this year as you did last year. I’ll do everything I can to help you make sure this doesn’t happen!

The biggest problem people trying to build their bodies have is lack of a clear, concise plan. They try to eat whatever healthy food is available, but often skip meals. They stroll around the gym doing exercises without much rhyme or reason and they miss workouts. And they invest their hard earned money in supplements but then only remember to take them a few times a week.


So how do you combat this muscle-destroying and fat-promoting inconsistency? Here’s what I do: each evening I write down all my Body Building Success Activities or BSAs as I call them.

BSAs are a list of activities I need to do every single day to propel me towards my physique goal. For example, if my current goal is to gain 8 lbs. of muscle and lose 8 lbs. of fat in 3 months, I just work backwards and ask myself, “what are the most important activities I need to do every single day in order to accomplish my goal?

If you were trying to accomplish the same, this is what you might write down in your notebook.

(Today’s Date) BSA List

• Consume six nutrient dense meals today.
Follow this with six small boxes you can check off each time you have a meal.

• Perform 45 minutes of intense exercise.
This can be either cardio or weight training or both. Make sure to keep a training log.

• Take my supplements.
Follow this with a small supplement chart which you can check off each time you take your supplements throughout the day.

• Get at least 8 hours of rest.

Now all you do is simply check off your BSA list every day. Consider every check to represent a confidence-building “win”, because with each check you’re taking one more step towards your big goal! Over time, the BSA lists will allow you to clearly see if you’re regularly forgetting to complete a key activity so you can make appropriate changes in your lifestyle. (Skipping workouts? Get a workout partner.)

Please try out my daily BSA Technique to get and keep you on track this new year. It’s worked wonders for me in all areas of my life. Let me know how it works for you!
