Collected Fitness Wisdom #29

People in this country are too afraid to push the envelope. Our goal is to not just change people's bodies but to change their minds; to shift their thinking from No, I can't to Yes, I can. You can't do that by walking 30 minutes a day.

Do NOT forget that your DIET is more important than your training for fat loss.

Let the diet do the work while you train smart. As odd as this sounds, there aren't too many things more damaging to a good diet than being injured.

When you're hurt and can't exercise, people ditch the diet pretty quick. Please be smart and safe with your training.

Most resolutions lists are filled with unrealistic expectations. For example, "I am going to lose 15 pounds in one month." Yeah, good luck with that. Can it be done? Sure, but again, good luck with that if you want it to be fat and aren't 310 pounds and a 6'1 man. Setting yourself up for failure right out the gate may not be the best idea for success.

Don’t bend and twist your body out of alignment like some circus contortionist just for one more rep. It isn’t worth it.
