Autoresponder Sequence: 40 Strong

Done For Your eMails: Passive Income Rules!

This is my secret weapon which is exactly why this is the very first promotional tool I'm going to tell you about.

I literally doubled my income when I started emailing my list more often. Previously I used to think that I had to give my list a break. Like a lot of newbies I used to think that if I emailed my list too often or made too many offers that they would unsubscribe or get burnt out.

After listening to a Tellman Knudson course I realized that you have to train your list from the get go what they should expect from you.

Email them often and make constant offers. When you start out this way, they are used to it and don't get upset. On the other hand if you spent month's just giving away free stuff, never asking for a purchase and only email your list once every other week it's not surprise they get upset if you get aggressive with them. They just aren't used to it from you.

Here's a metaphor you might like. When you get in a new relationship you have to set some boundaries at the beginning right? It's hard to change the rules after you get really serious. The relationship has already been established. It's much easier to set the tone right from the start.

2nd Biggest Affiliate Mistake

Below you'll find an email sequence promoting the 40 Strong Program that you can mail out to your list. The cash will be great the week you're promoting but what happens the week after that?

I don't know about you but I'm a huge fan of Passive Income. Do the work once and benefit over and over. Set and forget.

Follow Up sequences or autoresponder sequences are the best for this!

Here's how I load up my autoresponder and I suggest you do it the same way because it works big time.

Let us assume you have 5-emails to use. These four emails will be sent 4-days in a row. After the last email take a four day break and then start the next 4-day promo for the next Critical Bench Product you want to promote.

Subject: 40 Strong

This weekend I was at my friends birthday pool party and we were chatting with a guy that looked to be in pretty good shape.

When he got up to go talk to someone else I was told he was over 50 years old!

I couldn't help but think to myself...WOW.  You can see some people in their 50's and they are limping around all hunched over with no energy.

When does it start?

I think the Big 4-0 is an important age. It officially starts mid-life but it's also a BIG cross road.

A lot of people kind of let themselves go and it's a downhill spiral.

Others decide that age is just a number and choose to make their 40's the best decade of their life.

It may not look the same as when we were in our 20's and 30's.  Our goals may not be to deadlift a personal best, but that's okay.

Priorities have changed for me.  I used to enjoy spending 3+ hours in the gym several days per week.

Today there's God, Family & Work (in that order).  

But to be strong for others, we have to be strong for ourselves first.

What does being 40 Strong look like?  It's being lean with hard muscles, it's having time efficient workouts, it's having energy to work hard and play hard and most importantly it's about enjoying the process and the workouts like we did when we started out.

Are you getting close to 40 years old or perhaps older?

Now is the time to get back to being your best.  

Are your glory days behind you or do you choose to be 40 STRONG?

Why you've been misled about getting stronger after 40....and what to do about it.

LIE#1:  You naturally put on weight as you get older… WRONG!

stop blaming those expanding love handles on getting older!

In fact, of any other challenge, this is the simplest to combat.

There are four factors which contribute to middle age weight gain: slowing metabolism, lower testosterone, poor diet and lack of exercise.

Look at that list. Two of the four factors are completely within our control.

It's time to stop blaming those expanding love handles on getting older. It's just an excuse.

All you need to do is make the right food choices and take care with what you eat. That tiny change alone will stop the onset of weight gain.

But when it comes to strength, here’s another myth to bust…

LIE #2:  As you get older, you naturally get weaker...WRONG!

I'll show how wrong this is…

Research from the University of Oklahoma found that over an eight-week period a group of middle-aged guys (35-50) succeeded losing body fat and building muscle.

That’s not all…

Compared with a group of college-aged guys over the same period, the older guys lost MORE body fat and gained MORE muscle.

So, let me say this again:

None of this is inevitable.

Yes, you’re susceptible… but it doesn’t have to be your future.

Getting older isn’t the problem.

(And any guy who blames age for their performance is making excuses.)

You don't have to accept these lies.

On the next page I'll reveal what no other strength program tells you.....
...the best way to continue building muscle into your 40s.

1. The Energy Spiral

There’s one everyday reality that hits you harder than anything else: always feeling tired.

To feel that overwhelming exhaustion every day is, well… exhausting.

You wake up tired. Yawn your way through the work day. And then spend the evening slouched on the sofa unable to keep your eyes open.

And you pay the price.

You spend less quality time with your wife. Less time with your kids. Every activity is a struggle.

Before you thought nothing of heading out to do any number of outdoor activities… now, you're lucky if you make it through the evening.

Your energy levels start on a downward spiral when your lack of energy reduces your activity level. It becomes a vicious cycle.

But here's the thing about the Energy Spiral. It goes up as well as down.

Find the energy and get back into daily activity and the spiral turns upwards. More energy = even more energy.

Reinvigorating your body to release enough energy to keep increasing energy levels needs to be a major part of any program.

2. The Frustration Cycle

Remember what you were like in your 20s?

Knocking around the gym. Lifting big. Huge gains every week. Eating whatever you wanted with no side-effects.

And then what happened when you hit your 30s?

Change happens.

A nag turns into an ache. The gains take a little bit longer. The fat clings a little harder to your body than it used to.

The realization hits: we’re not invincible.

Progress is painful. What worked for you as a 20-year-old kid doesn’t work for you now.

It’s perfectly natural.

Your body changes.

But NONE of the programs reflect that change. They expect you to try nailing it like you did in your youth…and when you don’t get results, frustration sets in.

You try working out harder. And for longer. Yet the results stall. Your energy starts dropping and soon you’re exhausted, frustrated or, even worse, injured.

It’s worse than hitting a plateau. And it’s not just a case of changing it up or trying something different.

The next stage is all about motivation…


3. The Priority Paradox

Of course, it's not your fault.

When you hit your 30s, life gets in the way.

You mature. Your priorities change.

Your days fill up with the everyday rigor of spending time on your career.

You dedicate your free time on evenings and weekends to your family.

Hanging out in the gym or sweating it out for hours on end stop having the same appeal.

Your motivation wanes. Your diet slips. Life gets in the way.

Your priorities may have changed… but your body still needs attention

As you can see, NONE of these issues are physiological.

Our challenges are not about our body. They are around what we choose to do with our body.

These are the same challenges for every guy, like you and me. You may be experiencing one or more of these right now… you may be going through all three.

By challenging and resolving each of these issues, you can turn back the clock. Deterioration and decay doesn’t have to be your reality.

Getting old is a fact of life and for many people, a truth that is very tough to accept. I just turned 40 myself making this concept all too real.

Every day we get older and our physical health slowly diminishes. Not only do our bodies begin to break down, most people find that they cannot make the time for activity like they once did. And time is the one thing we can never get back.

Sure, there are plenty of fit, physically active guys and girls with gray hair but in reality only a small percentage of the population. Working out consistently comes easy to some but carving out time for yourself only gets harder with family life, full-time careers and other responsibilities.

You cannot force something to work in your life and expect it to last. Exercise needs to be habit; it needs to be a part of who you are and how you go about your days. That’s the concept of the 40 Strong workout program.

Most workout routines have you lifting weights, doing body weight movements or doing cardiovascular exercise all the time independent of each other. These programs get results and typically work in the short term. But as with most things “forced” in our lives, they eventually stop working because people are creatures of habit.

We like to feel comfortable and usually that involves some form of laziness.

Again, there are a handful of people exercising regularly, getting good results doing the same thing over and over again. Good for them. I applaud them.

I’m not talking to them; I’m talking to YOU.

40 Strong is about you doing what you love to do when it comes to activity. This program is about choosing different ways to be physically active. Liking what you’re doing for exercise is the key to longevity and long-term results.

Because if you truly like something, it will be very hard to stop doing it.

I always like going back to children when it comes to explaining exercise and being active. Most of the children in this world have one thing in common; they like to play.

Playing is exercise. Kids run, jump, twist, climb and move their bodies with tremendous power, strength and agility.

As we age, we lose that ability. Not because we got older but because we stopped moving like that every day and this point is missed by many experts in the field of strength and health.

This program is about adding recess back into your life and having that time everyday where you get to play in different ways. In doing that you will regain energy, muscle, mobility, confidence and your life will be forever changed.
