In today’s new article, we share 3 tips on how to make training more efficient.

TLDR; “During the biggest holiday season of the year, your workouts may be getting blown about by visiting family, broken up from the kids’ out-of-school schedule, or overlooked in the jumble of parties.... before you overhaul your training plans, make sure you aren’t overlooking some easier ways to cut down your training time.”

PT, DPT, SSC @liz_nicole25 writes, “If you can sit and stand up from any chair, you can adapt the squat to your ability level. And, contrary to what you may have been told, you’d actually be doing your knees a favor.”

@eddiekuehne writes: “Once you have a location and travel determined, bring the right gear... Develop a system that works for you. It will help relieve the risk of forgetting something and will reduce anxiety. Evaluate how well it worked after each trip and refine it for the next one.”

Something to watch and share to counter every other excuse not to train.

In today’s new article, we explore skepticism and critical thinking — and how to use them in your training.

TLDR; “When the Advice Guy tells you to ‘look up to go up,’ your investigation into the mechanics of the movement and development of a model for its correct execution is more powerful than his high-school glory days. Your opinion is more rationally based.”

TLDR; “The best rule of thumb to follow is this: small changes, the smaller the better, based on your recent training data, lead to long-term progress.”

And in that sweet adversity, the barbell serves as a stand-in, a mimic or a boggart, for the many challenges that will assail your physical and mental being. It arms you with knowledge, that you’ve exceeded old limitations, that you are stronger and can bear more than you think. And you hold onto that knowledge when you have to face other tough things. The lifter’s satisfaction is the contentedness of a builder taking pride in his work, the artist’s relief that what she had in her mind became what she intended, knowing that at least in one venue hard work pays off.

🤓THE TRAINING LOG🤓 Link in bio!

TLDR; “The training log is part of the lifting culture. More practically, however, the act of writing something down on paper is an act of organization, making your training log the organic memory of your training.”

Not everyone will listen, most will not get it. But if the possibility is to change someone’s life, to help make someone strong who thought the inexorable slide into frailty and weakness was their only option, to give someone the tools to meet their own physical goals, or just to open someone else’s eyes to their own potential, then every person you happen to convince is worth every ounce of effort.

Many of my friends and some of my family do not know that I had a heart attack last year. (Just typing those words still scares me, a lot.) At the time, I was embarrassed. I’ve spent a good chunk of my life teaching people about physical fitness and about faith. And the first thoughts that start nagging at me as soon as I was in the recovery room were that I must have done something very very wrong in both of those areas.

It took a lot of love and support for me to bounce back mentally, physically, and spiritually from this, and I’m not the person I was before, not completely. The biggest part of that process that I’ve learned (or have been learning) is the need to overcome fear. I’ve had to learn to look for what is true, right, and solid; make changes; and learn some hard lessons. I’m not there yet, but I’m also not frozen with fear to a life of victimhood or circumstance. I think that’s important and it’s what I talk about in this video. Thanks to @barbelllogic for making it.
