How important are first impressions to you?
Your inner caveman holds the key.
Did you know that it takes just 7 seconds to make a first impression? These findings were reported by researchers from New York University and show how the moment a stranger first sees you, his or her brain makes a thousand quicksilver computations.
This is what happens when you meet an acquaintance for the first time...
In just the blink of an eye, the brain begins to make lightning fast, superhuman assessments, as it asks:
Carol Kinsey Goman is the author of "The Silent Language of Leaders: How Body Language Can Help - or Hurt - How You Lead." Writing at Forbes, she says, "First impressions are crucial. While you can't stop people from making snap decisions - the human brain is hardwired in this way as a prehistoric survival mechanism - you can understand how to make those decisions work in your favor."
Wow! So, this caveman skill stopped us from getting killed by wooly mammoths. How cool!
Yet what does the importance of first impressions have to do with your strength training?
A lot, as it happens.
You see, back in the 1960s there was an exercise system that took a bodybuilding wrecking ball to world records in all sports, knocking them over like skittles as it transformed once weaklings into weight room gods.
Yet as amazing as this might seem, there was also something else. In fact, this one thing is so unbelievable, that it will likely halt you dead in your tracks.
These record-shattering results were
lifts that took just 6 seconds.
And, no. That is not a misprint.
In less time than it takes to make a first impression, these lifts took a mere 6 seconds to build Superman strength.
