There’s a LOT of wisdom in the old saying “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it”.
In other words, if it’s working – and by working I mean working at whatever level you consider to be “satisfactory” (or acceptable) – then it’s probably best not to change or tinker with it unless absolutely necessary.
Customers, and those that follow this blog will know that I’m dead set against “modern way” weightlifting, “pumping and preening”, “toning the 61st head of the left upper part of the top bicep (or some such rot)”, treadmills and so forth.
However, some people that use the above claim it works for them – and my opinion on that?
By all means KEEP AT IT! If it WORKS – well – then there’s no real reason to change, eh?
But bear in mind that things can always be IMPROVED.
I’ve never quite understood shelling out big bucks on gyms, fancy equipment etc when you don’t need any of it. To me, it just makes more sense to get home after a hard day (well, make that “get away from the keyboard in the middle of a hard day”) – and get my workout in – and feel like a billion bucks later.
It’s also of course true that a lot of those that “pound the treadmill” and do bazillions of “cable crossovers for the outer head of the “pectoralis majoris” (or whatever rubbish is floating around these days)” and all that would be hard pressed to complete – get this – TWO TO THREE reps of some of the exercises I do – and this AFTER trying for a while.
And thats not just me talking. I’ve seen it happen over and over again.
So would these people benefit – and benefit BIG from 0 Excuses Fitness? The answer is quite obvious – a resounding HELL yes!
Other hand though, there are those that are “content to be where they are”. And despite what I said earlier about constantly striving to improve, at the end of the day it’s not my business (and neither should it be) where or HOW you choose to train.
All I can do is presents facts and proof in front of you – and it’s up to YOU after that.
The choice is YOURS, my friend!
All for now – back again tomorrow!
