If anyone has ever told you that getting in shape is easy…they were talking a whole bunch of B&%SH#@T !!!
To make the changes you want, you need to work hard, real hard! Your body likes to sit at its current set-point, to move it from there you have to shock your system into making change.
In my opinion you need to take your body near to its extremes (almost) every time you train. Here’s my reasoning.
- When you do an intense training session, you will force your body to use a huge amount of resource to return you to a steady state, this can result in a post-exercise metabolic boost for 4 to 6 hours after you workout.
- Often training hard means you can’t train as long. Time-efficient can relate to time-effective.
- You make yourself mentally strong. You get better at handling a higher work rate, the pain, the discomfort… all of this resets your mind-set for future hard-out sessions.
So get out there, work hard and get results!
