Autoresponder Sequence: The Critical Bench Program 2.0

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 Critical Bench Program 2.0 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: 3 reasons to focus on this lift


If You're Not Focusing On The Bench Press… You're Missing Out On A Ton of Muscle and Strength That Could Be Yours!

That's the SINGLE BIGGEST reason you need to start focusing on lifting more weight on the bench: So you can gain more muscle mass!

Not only that… the bench press is a very intense and demanding exercise for your entire body.

When you do a heavy and intense bench press… you can shock your muscles into growing faster than they usually would. And because of the intensity of the bench, your body releases a ton of anabolic hormones into your bloodstream. Things like testosterone and human growth hormone.

So bottom line… if you focus on increasing your bench press... and the amount of weight you lift on the bench press, you WILL gain muscle and lose fat. And as a result… you'll look bigger, more muscular, and also leaner.

Again, I've seen it time and time again.

Have You Ever Wondered Why People Are So Obsessed With The Bench Press?

I used to ask myself, what's the big deal with the bench press anyway?

It didn't matter if it was at school with my friends… at work with my co-workers… or at the gym with my lifting buddies… everyone would always ask me, "How Much Do You Bench?"

But over time, as I became more informed about exercise and muscle growth… I soon learned that the bench press did a lot more for your body than just about any other exercise.

3 Reasons Why You'll Want to Focus on Increasing Your Bench Press

  1. As you probably already know… having a big bench press is like a badge of honor. Plain and simple… it gets you respect and attention in almost every area of your life. It's a measuring stick that you use with your buddies. The one with the biggest bench is usually the most respected. The strongest is usually the most respected (and most feared!)
  2. Having a big bench usually means you're strong and in shape. In fact most football coaches in college are dead serious about knowing how much you can bench press and test it several times a year. You see they knew something that most people don't…
  3. Increasing your bench press will also increase the amount of muscle mass you have on your entire body! It's true… and it's because of 2 reasons. First, when you keep lifting more and more weight, your body must add muscle mass so that it can handle that additional stress (weight) you're placing on it. And second, heavy intense lifts like the bench press releases anabolic hormones into your bloodstream… things like testosterone and human growth hormone. These are the male muscle builders that help you pack on muscle.

The bench press is not just about boosting your ego, having a head turning upper body, or about the ability to push people around on the field.

When done correctly (which most people don't) the bench press uses every single muscle in your body. You stimulate the chest, shoulders, triceps, biceps, your back and even your LEGS.

Q: Why did you release the Critical Bench Program 2.0?

A: This is my way of celebrating the ten year anniversary of the Web site and the program and to thank everyone that has supported CriticalBench.com over the years.



Q: Why the need to update it?

A: Since I first wrote the program… I've interviewed hundreds of world class powerlifters and bodybuilders. I've started competing in power lifting myself and joined a few underground barbell clubs.

So I have a ton of new information I want to share with you. Plus I want to give you access to all the training logs for one price as a way to celebrate the ten year anniversary. More details on that can be found below.


Q: How many people have used the Critical Bench Program since it was first released in the year 2000?

A: 32,887 people. Some may have been repeat customers.


Q: Will everyone get the same results as you Mike? Gaining 50 lbs on their bench press in 10 weeks?

A: I don't know… you may get better results or you may get worse results… because we're different people.

But one thing I know for sure… thousands of other people have had tremendous success and I'm sure you'll get amazing results as well.

And since this ebook is all about increasing your bench press by 50 pounds in 10 weeks… you're going to get all the benefits that go with that. More muscle, more strength, more raw power, and more confidence. All the things I've experienced in my life when I started focusing more on the bench.


Q: Will I have to buy each training log or starting one rep max program separately?

A: Nope. This time you get all 80 workout charts included in your package. From a 100 pound starting max to a 500 pound starting max. The bench press numbers are calculated for you. If you bought these all individually in the past it would cost you $3200.


Q: Can I use the Critical Bench Program 2.0 more than once?

A: Abso-freakin-lutely. Okay I'm letting out one surprise, I can't contain myself. Everyone who picks up a copy during the presale will get the Critical Deload Routine as a limited time bonus. Just follow the deload routine for four weeks after completing the Critical Bench Program and then you can start on the next max chart. By cycling your training and resting your nervous system you can keep making gains on the Critical Bench Program over and over.

I do plan on selling the Critical Deload Routine separately so it will probably only be available during the pre-sale event.


Q: Why do I care about increasing my bench press anyhow?

A: when you have to lift more weight... your body reacts to the additional stress you're placing on it BY ADDING MORE MUSCLE TISSUE!

If you keep lifting the same amount of weight, over and over again, your body has NO REASON to get stronger OR gain muscle. It can already handle the weight you're used to.

But when you keep lifting more and more weight... your body must adapt, get stronger, and add muscle to keep handling that additional weight.

That's how muscle gains are made: It's by continuously trying to get stronger. When that happens, your body adds more muscle mass to handle this additional stress that's placed upon it.


Q: Is This Program Just For My Chest?

A: No, the bench press involves many muscle groups and you are given a full body workout to follow.


Q: Do I need special equipment like bands, chains and bench press shirts to do this program?

A: You don't need access to any special equipment.

All you need is a bench, barbell some weights and some dumbbells. Whether you're young or old, an athlete or weekend warrior, a novice or advanced lifter, you can use this program to set a new personal best training less than an hour a day four or five times a week.

I didn't want people to have to spend a lot of money or find a special place to train to use the program.


Q: Is this a powerlifting program or a bodybuilding program?

A: It's neither and it's both. Way to beat around the bush huh? Seriously though, this program has elements of both and I call it a Power Building Program. You'll get strong like a powerlifter, but look as good as a bodybuilder.


Q: What if I miss this 10 year anniversary sale you're having?

A: The Critical Bench Program has never been on sale. NEVER… for 10-years straight until now. I don't have any plans of discounting it again.


Q: How much could you (Mike Westerdal) bench press when you were a freshman in high school?

A: 100 pounds. Yup it's true.


Q: Where can I get proof and read about other people's results?

A: http://xxxx.criticalb.hop.clickbank.net

Or you can check out our 300, 400 and 500 pound bench press clubs. Maybe you'll be the next member?


Q: Is this program for me?

A: The last thing I want to do is pressure anyone or hype anything up too much. This is either a good fit for you or it's not. Either way is cool.

Look, if you're happy with what you're benching right now, you definitely don't need this program… unless you want to keep going up… if you want to keep getting bigger and better.

And you don't need it if you're currently happy with your size and muscularity. If you're happy with the way your body looks and the amount of muscle you carry… then I'd skip this… unless you want to pack on even more muscle.

If you're as strong as you want to be… or if you're as quick and as powerful as you need to be for your school's sport… you probably don't need it.

But if you want to gain more strength, more muscle, and a much bigger bench press that makes your buddies envious and jealous, this will do it.



Day 5 email:

Subject: Hold Your Air?


As a personal trainer I typically teach my clients to take a deep breath in during the negative portion of the lift and tell them to exhale during the concentric part of the exercise.

When it comes to maximum effort work it's another ball game.

The rules that apply to high rep training are thrown out the window.

Fill your stomach with air before you unrack the bar and hold that air until the lift is completed. It may take practice but try to fill your belly with air rather than your chest. If you let you air out during a max lift attempt, your body will move making you unstable. Holding your air keeps your entire body tight and gives you a stable base to press from.

Some people actually prefer to take two airs. This means they take one breathe when they unrack the bar. Then while holding the bar at lockout they exhale and take another breathe before starting to descend. Give both techniques a try and see which you prefer.
