Training is hard and progress does take a long time. If it didn’t there would be a lot of strong people strutting around everywhere. But if you honestly review yourself, your performance and your work ethic, are you nearer the start or the end of the long road of your training journey?
Have you ever wondered why when you need to go to the gym, or do sprints, or do your final piece of a project your brain magically finds other things to do?
It’s like YOU think, “well I really need to finish writing my report or I’ll be in trouble.”

This is exactly the same as your training. You know what you need to do to achieve your goals, you do! Want to bench 100kg? Want to deadlift 200kg? Then next time you’re in the gym ask yourself the following question;

When one of them becomes the strongest, they treat everyone else somewhat as enemies, and hope to stay the strongest for just another workout…
On the other side of the street to ‘lifting solo’, there is another gym called ‘team lifting’……
Ask yourself the daily question, did I become better today? I know that some days you can’t be bothered to go to the gym, or you may be injured, or tired or whatever. The reality is this: The Universe Doesn’t Give a Shit. You can either achieve your goals, or make up excuses as to why you failed.
