I know how it is……….
You’d love to know exactly what ratio of fast twitch to slow twitch muscle fibers you have.
I bet you’d also like to know definitively whether you’re pure ectomorph, mesomorph or endomorph. Not only that, surely you ‘need’ to know if you’re a slight blend of two?
Of course you need to know precisely what genetic carb tolerance you have.
Is paleo for you?
Can you handle grains?
It doesn’t stop there! Next up, we MUST determine exactly what training frequency you can tolerate – with accuracy.
How much cardio do you need to stay lean?
What genetic potential do you have? Will you ever deadlift 500 lbs +?
Where to start?
What training split?
H.I.I.T. or steady state cardio?
Enough is enough.
See the damage of information overload? – Major case of over-thinking!
This is the dark side of having so much information and appealing options readily available……….how can you possibly zone in or decide what’s right?
We have such a lack of time these days, we just cannot handle the idea of investing our “precious” time into something and it not returning flawless and perfect results. Therefore we refuse to commit to any concept in absence of a guarantee of results.
The energy spent analysing, contemplating and querying the options is energy that is lost. Energy that could have gone into trying one of the options. Besides, what if we could hypothetically give you a magic info sheet, with your personal answers to all those magic questions?
What would happen?
Your work ethic would shrivel up.
Now you don’t need to work hard, the stars are perfectly in line and you don’t need to overcome obstacles. Just do as your told, it’ll all happen.
What WILL happen is…….you’ll learn precious little about yourself.
Life is a mission of learning, evolution and discovery. It’s through facing roadblocks and obstacles and hardships, we discover our true selves and we develop true grit – a trait often lost nowadays.
If you knew a program and diet was guaranteed to work perfectly, would you really work?
Instead of doing mental summersaults, how about using sensible gut instinct and choosing a program. Then lay the groundwork and follow the program exactly as it’s laid out for 12 weeks minimum!
Don’t second guess it, just do. Learn from doing and not talking.
Even if you don’t get the exact magnitude of results you hoped, you’ll have gained quality knowledge……..
Knowledge in the form of experience.
You have no right to dismiss anything before giving it a real honest effort.
Here is a fool-proof summary that guarantees results:
- Pick program
- Determine time-frame
- Maintain clarity of mind
- Results will appear
Focused efforts = results.
