I am doing some fascinating research on the topic of
Somatic Psychology for the second course in in my
Somatic Psychology is basically a way of understanding
a person’s character by observing the way they “hold”
their physical posture.
For example, a person who has weak or imbalanced legs,
and tends to hold tension in their joints is called “The
Creative Type”; since they spend most of their energy in
the mind as opposed to the body.
They almost never exercise, are very unathletic and avoid
movement in most cases. Yet they are usually extremely
intelligent or artistic.
You might remember this kind of kid from grade school.
He / she was pretty weak, always got sick, had a poor
appetite or allergies BUT they were brilliant in school
and the teachers often rewarded them for being smart.
In my studies I am learning that there are several
variations of dozens of different character postures like
All of them have their strengths and weaknesses, and most
of us can be placed into one or more of these categories.
The point of studying this idea of somatic psychology is
so that I can personally recognize my strengths in order
to capitalize on them, and see my weaknesses in order to
Also, so that I can share these ideas with you and support
YOU in becoming the strongest version of yourself.
If we are self-objective and honest with ourselves it is

In regard to BUILDING BRUTE PHYSICAL STRENGTH
there are going to be two types of people…
One that has a natural ability to get stronger.
The other has difficulty building strength.
Both types should follow a program that’s main focus is on
challenging the nervous system and building solid tendon
The first type of person should use it in order to maximize
his natural strengths.
The second needs to follow it in order to bring up his physical
The interesting thing about BOTH types of people is that
by challenging their body’s to grow stronger… they may also
experience a change in their psychological character!
If you’re in need of a solid step by step routine for building
strength… that ALSO challenges your character and forces you
become mentally strong too… then you might consider investing
in Mike Gillette’s Savage Strength System.
There really is nothing magical or ground breaking in Mike’s
approach… it’s just based on sound strength principles that
will support ANYONE who needs to grow stronger.

course described earlier, I will be opening it back up again in a few
weeks… keep an eye out.
