...there I was, exhausted and annoyed.
just been bollocked for not knowing how to make a ham salad...
And the damn bar wasn't moving off the ground
* * *
I worked in a restaurant when I was a teenager
After school till about 11pm-1am
I'd lift weights AFTER the shift
(so don't give me your lies about not having enough time, if you want something enough you'd make the time)
One evening, after the usual shouty kitchen shift
I went home to lift some weights
Specifically, to deadlift a new max
But the bar wasn't moving
I was so tired I just wanted to sleep
I was angry - having just been shouted at
But rather than go home and go to sleep
I stood outside, looked up at the stars and just took a minute
Then I went back into the gym,
got my focus back
tensed all my muscles HARD
And got that bar off the floor!
165kg when I was 16
To me at that time, that was HUGE
I just wanted to run home and tell my parents how much of a badass I was
Imagine if I had given up
If i didn't train after work and late at night
If I did let what others think about me put me off
There's quite a few lessons here:
- NEVER GIVE UP
- TRAIN WHENEVER YOU CAN
- IF YOU WANT SOMETHING BAD ENOUGH, YOU'LL FIND THE TIME
- WHAT OTHERS THINK OF YOU IS NONE OF YOUR BUSINESS
- FOCUSING ON THE GOAL WILL GET YOU THERE
Keep moving forwards TODAY.
Go take ACTION!
Raw Strength Gym, Warrington
PS - This year I’ve decided to work with LESS people, but give them a higher quality of service during and after an initial 12 week program.
My aim is to fill our program with 10 new people, then close the doors and spend 2016 getting phenomenal results with these people.
On this program you will get:
1) Our habit based, rule based nutrition system
2) Your own coach for every step of the program,
3) You will learn how to lift weights from scratch, or advance your skill to a higher level, whilst building strength, muscle and having FUN doing so
Each week you’ll train 3 times in our private facility, with a highly experienced coach showing you our program so you can rapidly lose unwanted lbs, develop whole body strength like an athlete, and simply transform the way you look
Ladies apply here: http://www.rawstrength.uk/lean-girls-2016
Men apply here: http://www.rawstrength.uk/built-12-weeks
This is done relentlessly over 12 weeks, then we’ll sit down and talk you through our goal setting system to set a longer term goal and work specifically on the areas you are weak on.
This whole process allows me to systematically transform your body by installing new habits and actions that will support your lifestyle and goals long term.
