The difference is that I have the balls to admit it and you just won’t give in. I will continue to get results, yet you will continue to settle for mediocrity and make excuses as to why you haven’t succeeded.
Well, it’s not too late - we can help. Here are three ways to embrace your weaknesses and get results…come take a look…
“But I Hate Those!”
You hate them because they work. It’s natural to not want to implement a specific lift, exercise or routine because we “don’t like it” or because we are unfamiliar with it.
The best thing you can do for your progress in the gym is to try out by gradually implementing these exercises with your current routine. This will not only take you outside of your comfort zone, but also further educate you and, hell, it’ll yield some results!
Tell me if this seems familiar:
Most people hate doing legs at the gym because it’s taxing on your system, doesn’t pump your arms up and, well, it friggin’ hurts!
But upon learning that by doing legs you will see overall increases in strength, testosterone and performance, you now have a new found love for them.
“It Taste Like Chicken”
It taste like chicken, because IT IS chicken!
Next time you go to the grocery store, wear an elastic band on your wrist. When you reach for the chicken breast, SNAP that damn elastic!
If you want to get results, you will need to broaden your selection in foods, otherwise you will inevitably fall off the diet train right into a heaping pile of mozzarella sticks.
Try other lean meats and fish. This will not only keep your taste buds stimulated, but also teach you how to REALLY use the stove. When the same meal plan or foods are consumed too often, fat loss (or muscle building) will slow down because your body will decrease its sensitivity to leptin (fat burning hormone) and build its resistance to insulin. This will wreak havoc on your fitness goals and take you a step back. Trying new foods will keep your body guessing, which will yield accelerated results in return.
Not a bad investment, huh?
“Let Me Check My Schedule.”
It’s time to bust out your calendar, make some tweaks and switch some “appointments” around.
By changing year schedule, you won’t fall into the same monotonous routine that will eventually cause boredom, lack of motivation and the desire to blow your stack at the drop of a dime. Work out at a different time, get lunch with some friends or change the channel – you’ve seen every episode of Married with Children - twice!
Time to Embrace
So, next time you’re too proud to admit your weaknesses…
Remember: By embracing your weaknesses and growing from them, you will grow bigger muscles, get vein popping abs…and maybe enjoy life a little bit more
