NEED HELP?|

I was consulting with an athlete that wondered why his progress was stunted and he couldn’t gain fitness. He told me verbally what he was doing for workouts and strength training.


When we examined logged data, his volume was actually 30 percent lower than his memory recalled.


Log your workouts - no matter what system you use. If you’re not logging your workouts, your memory may be too generous and all that does is limit your progress.

A couple of years ago, I sent out daily tweets that suggested people try to do something (nutrition, stress relief, exercise, knowledge growth, etc.) for just one day. This series is a twist on that concept in that there are fewer challenges – but the time commitment is longer.


Everyone has bad habits that get in the way of progress. Everyone can stand to improve diet, fitness, flexibility, strength, balance, or some other aspect of daily living. The concept is to commit to changing one thing for just one week. It might be something you want to continue doing or something that is done to just break a bad habit.

 

Those that are interested in publically sharing goals and seeing ideas presented by others can share on my Facebook page.


I’ll begin – I am giving up cheese for one week. I will bring it back into my diet in a week, but I’ve been enjoying too much of it.Too many calories have been going to this food item.

 

Here's another example, a local athlete that doesn’t have a Facebook account is limiting soda to one per day. His soda consumption has unwittingly grown.


Another athlete vows to run three times this week - just 20 to 30 minutes each time.


You? What do you want to do this week to break a bad habit or start a new, desireable habit?
