The repeating cycle of inconsistency

I have a lot of motivational graffiti on the walls of my gym,  the Cave.

Two of my favorites are:

  • Don’t complain about the results you didn’t get from the work you didn’t do.” (which I saw on the wall of Laurel Blackburn’s gym in Tallahassee, FL


  • “If you are tired of starting over, quit giving up.” (this was written by a former SWAT Officer who used to train with us several years ago.

I have said many times that consistency is the key to making progress in your training.

Yes, all the other factors, like nutrition, rest/recovery, hydration, supplementation, etc. all have their place. However, if you are not consistent in your training, the other factors don’t really matter.

How can you build a sold foundation of strength and fitness with a “hit or miss” ?

The answer is, you can’t. It’s just that simple.

Two steps forward, then three steps backward puts you in reverse !

This shouldn’t be hard to understand, but many people just don’t get it.

Life happens and unexpected circumstances happen to everyone, but you can still strive to be consistent no matter what.

That’s exactly what you should do!
