What are you doing?
A more accurate statement for your mind is “what am I doing?” This is a question that you should continually ask yourself. What are you doing about your nutrition? Are you working hard at the gym only to completely undo all that work within 15 minutes of sitting at a table? A particularly hard workout is not an invitation to devour highly processed high fat foods. Your diet and nutritional intake is the foundation for your fitness. Without a balanced intake you are putting your performance at a disadvantage and making yourself work extra hard. What are you doing about mobility? If your nutrition is in check and you have eliminated foods that cause you inflammation but are not following a mobility routine…you need to start. Spending some time outside the gym to gain more range of motion in a particularly junky spot will only help increase your performance and help decrease the probability of injury. If you are constantly fighting to get into better positions then help yourself with a daily dose of mobility work.
Take small steps when implementing your personal performance plan. Trying to do everything at once will cause you to burn out and get into a habit of starting and stopping. Starting with 6-8 weeks of being consistent in 2-3 things will help you build a more stable foundation.
Here are 2 examples:
1) consume no refined sugar.
2) 30min of yoga or stretching outside the gym 2 times a week.
Start with small easy changes and work up to more difficult once’s. Remember fitness is a life long journey and not a quick fix.
