WHY LESS IS MORE
How small actions repeated over time are more powerful than a big burst once in a while.
LESS IS MORE
One lesson I have learned through my coaching career is that consistency is the key to results. You will get more results from 15 – 30 min sessions everyday, than 2 big hourly sessions per week. One session a week will not bring you any results in the long term. Strive for consistency; it is the hardest way to create a habit; however this is the real path to success.
HOW TO DO IT?
JUST SHOW UP! What is easy to do is also easy not to do – so show up and go for it!
No matter how you feel, what excuse your emotional brain will find, just show up! The first muscle you should train is your willpower! 15 – 30 min exercise releases dopamine that will switch your thoughts to the ‘happy zone’. It will be difficult at first; however your body will quickly ask for it.
HOW TO MAKE THE TIME?
“Be regular and orderly in your life, so that you may be violent and original in your work.”
- Gustave Flaubert
No time? Find it! Wake up earlier, re-organise your day, avoid that sofa TV combo or your social drink during the week. Get disciplined, and block that sacred 15 – 30 min just for it – without any device within range to distract you.
You will be surprised how building discipline and focus will save you a lot of time and free your mind of clutter – leaving you to be more productive.
The paradox is that being disciplined will bring you more freedom.
PROGRESS OR REGRESS – THERE IS NO STAND STILL
This is about your little workout that you won’t do today...that will lead you to failure of your goals over time.
It seems insignificant today, but it is actually the repetition of making the right choices, consistently – day in/day out, until you reach your desired outcome that will make the difference between success and failure. You are doing this for yourself, with complete integrity and honesty.
The truth is, there is no standing still, you are either progressing or regressing – the choice is yours.
WHAT TO DO?
Start with a metabolic workout for better results (compound exercises with little rest in between, in an effort to maximize calorie burn and increase metabolic rate during and after the workout).
If you are a novice, bodyweight exercises will help you to regain your muscle memory and muscle endurance – it is there, you are born an athlete (you just forgot about it)!
Your body will urge you to get back into it, and you will very quickly feel the benefit of having a fully functional and powerful body with no aches and pains (apart from a good ache the day after training when you start a new training regime!).
Once you feel confident to move to the next level (in 4 to 6 weeks), you can then progress to a kettlebell workout or other metabolic weight training to push the bar even further.
EXPLORE TO KEEP IT EXCITING
We are wired to explore new things – this is what keeps us alive! You can start with metabolic training as a base and then vary it with other activities.
Never took that climbing class you were thinking of doing years ago? Do it now! If you’re already an expert in rock climbing, martial arts or another sport – try something completely different and totally out of your comfort zone, which you might feel ridiculous doing at first.
PERSONAL CONFESSION TIME: I tried ballet dancing once and well...I enjoyed it! It was challenging, and I found some helpful correlation with my Muay Thai training which I was undergoing at the time. PS: In case anyone asks – I was not wearing a tutu!!
EXPLORE, CHALLENGE AND REINVENT YOURSELF!
THERE’S NO EXCUSE – HERE IS MY GIFT TO GET YOU STARTED
My metabolic workout sequences are only 7 minutes long and are designed for busy people who want quick results.
If you repeat it twice daily, it will only take you 16 minutes to complete your workout (with a 2 min rest in between).
25 minutes if repeated 3 times daily – you can even break it down to 1 session in the morning for an ultimate wake up and 2 sessions in the evening.
All is takes is 16 or 25 minutes well spent, which will completely turn your day around.
Here are the instant benefits:
- Faster metabolism that will carry on burning calories during the day
- Higher energy levels
- Dopamine which will boost your level of confidence and strength
- An awesome feeling of accomplishment that will make every task during the day feel easy
- Body fat percentage will drop (if you maintain a healthy diet)
The above benefits have a compound effect over time.
