You need to read this post because it’s full of useful info you’ll not know if you don’t.
Yes, however highly relevant to making progress.
“Chase performance, not fatigue.”
A saying to live by, especially in these modern days where training for aesthetic is number 1.
While training to look good isn’t a bad thing, it’s by no means a useful one. I know plenty of people who look great but can’t do the following:
– Run a mile without stopping
– Pick up and put their bodyweight over head
– Squat correctly
– Have any form of athleticism
The list goes on but we shall stop there.
If you’re content with looking good but having no phial prowess then more power to you, if however you want to look as strong as you are then keep reading to learn two secrets.
Great, here is your reward.
Secret 1 –
Play a sport.
Yep, it’s that simple and you’ll find it also adds some enjoyment to your training int he gym because you’ll start to have a focus towards developing aspects of performance such as speed, strength and stability to improve your new hobby.
A sport will also provide you with a new social circle of likeminded people who want to better themselves, you’ll also make new friends and more importantly, new rivals to keep you on your toes.
Being the best is boring, always chase someone better and you’ll stay hungry for progress.
Secret 2 –
Train for strength because it’s the base of the pyramid and without strength you’ll struggle to do anything else.
The classic 5×5 is still popular for the simple reason of it makes people strong and it’s so simple to do. You also find that 8×3 is popular among people who train for strength, as is hitting 20 rep squat sets.
As a human you want to be as strong as you need. Might sounds silly but plenty of people are too weak these days and struggle to do even basic daily lifting tasks on their own, simply due to our modern life and being lazy.
This goes for ladies and gentlemen, both should be strong because strength is for everyone.
You can take this information and do wit hit what you will, apply it and start to make progress or ignore it and stay as you are, either are fine it’s your life, I just want you to have the best one possible.
