The way you perceive the world shapes your thoughts, your thoughts become actions, and your actions create your physical reality.
If you haven’t been getting the results you want then it might be time to change your paradigm.

It won’t be easy and it’s not without risk. But it’s the only way if you want something different to what you are currently getting.

You must become pleasure-AVOIDING in the short term with the long-term goal of perceiving things a whole lot differently – a paradigm shift.

You have to see what you once found pleasurable as painful, possibly eating that cake and what you once found painful as pleasurable, getting up early to exercise on a cold Winter’s morning perhaps.

If you don’t make this mental switch in your mind, you will always be fighting an uphill battle because often times the things we have found oh so pleasurable have a massive sting in the tail. It is important to understand that getting healthy and into shape isn’t really a physical process; it’s the physical result caused by a person’s worldview, thoughts, and therefore their actions – in essence, their paradigm.

Wouldn’t it be nice?

The keys to success with strength training, once you respect the principle of never hurting yourself, can be found in two major guiding principles. Progressive overload and consistency. You need to gradually but surely increase the challenge or your body will have nothing to adapt to and obviously if you aren’t consistent, then the results won’t be there either. Unfortunate factoid: You can’t store either fitness or strength. Hence the advice above. Don’t stop, once you start.

Strength and conditioning

Look Good Naked?

We talk a lot about functional strength, useful fitness, diabetes defeating cardio training, osteoporosis crushing (actually the opposite of that!) strength training here at ‘Best Practice Personal Training’.

But let’s not forget that even though we know its more about how you feel, there is an element, even if it is a little hidden, that responds to this kind of archetypal fitness industry headline, right?
