everything accumulates, whether it’s training or life, it all adds up to greatness,productivity, consistency or it can go the other direction such as mediocre, unproductive and inconsistent. I’ve worked between these two parallel universes and well let’s just say one of my best qualities I have is my ability to work hard and stay FOCUSED. I’ve had my ups and downs, but I’ve always gotten back up to push myself toward goals and maintain the course of achievement. All these accumulative experiences have taught me a lot and have helped me to help be a better coach. Everything in life adds up, so plan out want you and go after it.
To keep progressing in training I must do certain things everyday. 1. I have clear cut goals, daily, weekly, monthly and yearly. these short term goals help me focus in the present, example eating the right foods daily that allow my body and mind to give 100% focus on training, recovery and helping others reach their goals. i give myself no excuses, eating is something I can control and i’m not willing to sacrifice performance or feeling good in general to allow myself a weak diet plan. food for me right now is fuel, although if I want a treat or cheat meal i have it. But it’s not the basis of my nutrients. 2. This next one tough, but I force myself to do it. Sleep is the ultimate anabolic formula of all time and its free. When I do lose sleep its because I think i’m relaxing by watching a movie, but i’m not it’s usually on my long days at the gym. My bedtime is usually between 8:30pm and 9:30pm depending on if I have an early morning client. Yesterday at the meet i felt it. My sleep off just enough to allow some weak thoughts float through but I know my training is dialed in so I gave myself no excuses. I wanted my lifts because I earned them, funny how that works. Work your ass off to build good old fashioned self confidence. The more confidant one become makes anything possible. That’s why I share this slogan “WORK HARD AND BELIEVE IN YOURSELF” really simple and if I can do it so can many others if they just believe. 3. Weekly goal is to write a blog and or make video to help others succeed and get what they want in life. Another weekly goal is to get 3 productive training sessions in, which means I pr in one of those workouts, which again builds more confidence. Example I hang snatched my opener which was 97kg and just missed doubling it 4 or 6 times, I went after it because I believed I can make that 97kg double. Another weekly goal is to talk with the people I coach and help them troubleshoot mobility issues, nutrition programs or technique work on the lifts, and of course goal setting and holding them accountable. 4. This is a daily weekly and monthly goal, I always look back at the day to see what I can do better. I’m always wanting to get better. No matter what. No matter what we do whether it leads us to greatness or just an awesomely amazing life it all adds up so create the life you want with A goal and yes just one to start is a great start. WORK HARD BELIEVE IN YOURSELF
