The longer you spend in fitness the more it seems as if you’re banging your head against a brick wall.
Some will listen, some won’t and when some do they end up tweaking and changing things to fit wha they want to be, rather than how it ought to be.
Given the almost endless amount of information we have access to, finding patters of what work is easy.
The hard part is having people stick to them.
You see most things will work provided you give them a fair crack at the whip.
Does it mean it’s the ‘perfect’ method for you?
Absolutely not, you might be better off doing something else, however unless you give a good amount of time to anything then nothing will ever work.
How long do we need to stay with something?
That’s the million dollar question and I don’t have a good answer for it.
As with a lot of things it will come down to the ever classic fallback of – it depends.
One thing may work for you for 3 weeks only, something else might work for 3 years, it’s truly a pain in the ass to know, however you simply need to take that chance and give something a go.
If you find it isn’t doing anything, then go back to what you were doing.
The tricky part is actually having the courage to try something new and the faith to stick at it for a while.
You’ve probably heard of the old sayings surrounding change taking time, that results (whatever they are to you) will be less a straight line and more like and spirograph.
I truly wish I could tell you exactly what YOU needed to hear.
I can’t and anyone who claims to is either a tad naive or is trying to sell you something.
Giving general advice however, well, stick with something for at least 6months, if nothing happened then chances are it’s not the right thing for you to be doing.
Say you are getting results and they seem consistent, great, keep going.
