All or nothing thinking.
This can lead to great focus on a goal. It causes bursts of motivation followed by intense action and often some cool results - but it comes with a cost.
Once that initial motivation is spent, or the plan doesn't quite go to plan, the results don't quite measure up or we are unable to take action 100% exactly as we'd like, we then reach an important crossroads.
I call it the, "F*ck it" Junction.
It's here we "fall off the wagon" and revert back to type.
Undoing all your hard efforts and dragging you further from your desired goal. But there is another way.
Rather than "all or nothing" look at it and act along a continuum - from worst to better to best.
Understand that at any one time you are along this continuum and your actions will reflect this.
Essentially you don't "Fall off the Wagon" and have to get back on it - starting from scratch.
You simply stay on the wagon, and "change speeds" as you travel along the continuum as your situation, lifestyle and behaviours allow.
If you are constantly falling off the wagon, it means you were never in balance to begin with.
An exercise program is not meant to be a form of abuse....
But an intelligently designed way to elicit optimal health and performance.
Now this may appear obvious - but according to my facebook and instagram newsfeed its not that commonly understood.
Train smart. Eat Smart. Live Well.
I'm currently working behind the scenes to make this happen at a fully kitted space in South London. Not only Strongman Sessions, but I'm planning to kick start all these pretty cool classes too,
And more. It's not all set in stone yet, and I need your help.
Click on the link below to answer 2 questions about what type of class you would be interested in.
I really appreciate your input and anyone that fills it out will get to attend one class for FREE if it goes ahead.
So jump to it!
Share this link with your friends, family and gym buddy too.
See you in class!
Your genetic blueprint is not your limitation but your "user guide".👣
Just as you wouldn't design and manufacture a car to then go compare
and enter it into a boat race,
Expectations about your body and forcing it to fit into some ideal (whether looks or for performance) is futile and if you are overly critical of your body probably won't end well for you.
Instead, read your user guide, learn how to optimise your health and body so that it can be the best version it can be. Above all love all the amazing things your body can do for you.
