Do you have Training Schizophrenia?
Are you focused more on cardio, and just trying to improve your overall health – taking fish oil, resveratrol, and greens drinks, etc.
Then you go to a seminar with Pavel Tsatsouline and watch him do a single leg squat for a bunch of reps and throw the kettlebell around as if it was nothing so you start doing that…
Then you talk to Mike Boyle or Gray Cook and you’re all about movement patterns and functional training.
Then you read something John Berardi, Mike Roussell or Tom Venuto wrote and you decide that you need to get super-lean.
Then you watch boxing or the UFC and remember how much you loved fighting and maybe you should make a comeback and train for just one more fight….
But then you go hang out with Matt Rhodes, Vinnie Dizenza, Jim Wendler and Dave Tate and decide that you’re too small and too weak and should eat your way up to 275 and work solely on max strength.
Then your wife reminds you that you are a 40+ two-time cancer survivor and should always focus just on improving your health….
Or is that just me ? :)
All kidding aside – the above describes so many people that I meet. They want to get lean so they start on a fat loss program but the second they start to lean out and see their abs – they think they look too small so they start trying to gain muscle.
Or the person who starts a solid low carb eating plan but by noon have decided that low fat is the way-to-go so they order pasta at lunch….
From now on you have to follow a single goal or plan for at least 90 days.
You can lean out, you can bulk up, you can train for a 5K – whatever you want.
But you have to pursue one goal relentlessly for 90 days before you can change paths.
Now watch your results increase.
