Focussing on the big rocks.
We tend to put more effort into things that don’t really make a difference than those that do because it’s a whole lot easier to take a supplement that it is to get more sleep, or buy a new training t shirt than focus on putting in the work to lift heavier things.
And it’s completely understandable, you’re taking action, albeit a small action with little or no meaningful benefit, but action nonetheless. And that feels good. At least in the moment.
But in order to really see progress towards our training, health and body comp goals, whatever they may be, takes a bit more effort.
Here are 5 big rocks that will get you further along the road to those goals if done consistently.
- Get enough sleep. Aim for 7-8 hours per night. Every night.
- Eat appropriate calories for your needs. Make it mostly whole foods.
- Eat a vegetable of 5.
- Train with intent and use progressive overload.
- Walk more.
And while we’re at it, here are 5 things that make little or no difference if the big rocks aren’t in place.
- Meal timings.
- Carb to fat ratio.
- Training loads of isolation movements such as bicep curls and ab work
- Sweating buckets during training
