Collected Fitness Wisdom #15

We are all brainwashed to believe that you can get bigger and stronger and leaner in a very short time, with very little effort and even less dedication.

But nothing could be further from the truth, my friends.

Think about this for a moment. Everyday you pick up something that weighs quite a lot of weight when you really analyze it. How much do your children weigh? How about that bag of groceries? What about your brief case or suit case?

Because this is part of our daily rituals, we take these things for granted.

Your kids are heavy. That bag of groceries weighs 15 or more pounds.

So why would you walk into a gym and pick up a 5 pound weight and expect your weakest link to get stronger?

Not going to happen.

The key to making big, dramatic changes to your life, whether they be in your weight, your fitness, your relationships, your finances or anything else is to set yourself goals that would literally revolutionise your life rather than those that only serve to rationalise why you can’t have more.

No matter what the program, most people make the mistake of not putting enough emphasis on their nutrition. I'll be the first to admit that diet is more important than exercise - and I've even made some goofy youtube videos to demonstrate the point - but too many folks think they can just eat the same way they always have as long as they start some type of exercise program.
