Rocky just enjoying life, one day at a time!
Alois Mader a professor at the German University of Sport Sciences in Cologne, points out a simple recipe or equation for success through the highly successful Kenyan running rrogram. "It goes, run every day from youth on. And run so that you still enjoy it the next day. Everything else will follow automatically."
This quote is as simple as it gets. Enjoy what you do in life. It can refer to many different areas in your life not just fitness.
Going to the gym everyday must be enjoyable, not a chore, or to cross something off your to do list. A big part about health and fitness is managing your stress levels, whether your a pro athlete or just a person that likes to stay in shape. If you continue to remind yourself about the positive reasons you started this journey, you will continue to have great success in our program.
We are not all built the same. The purpose of training is not to perform the maximal amount of work. Everyone has their own limits we must pay attention to our coaches, bodies, and mind. We are constantly reminding athletes that sometimes less is more. You don't have to spend 2 hours in the gym to get an effective workout. I have athletes on my own team that their limits on training are much higher than mine and I accept this. Some athletes need more volume while others do not. I want to be able to come back the next day wanting to become better and not hating the program that I have built and loved.
