Here you will discover that we are a product of our experiences.
Each of our journeys is unique and complex.
The inspiration for this post is my own journey. The past few months I have been sidelined from strength training. Fortunately I have my gentle yoga practice to fall back on. Tittibasana was a pose I could never complete because of my strength background. Due to my health setback I was able to finally fly in my version of Tittibasana.
See there is always a silver lining ;))
Minimum effective dosage.
Hmm, now that's what I'm talking about.
In regards to this post, it is the minimum time spent training to get the body I want.
Resilience as defined by Psychology Today is the ineffable quality that allows some people to be knocked down by life and come back stronger than ever.
My motto is progress not perfection.
My mantra... less is more.
I TRULY believe that once you get your body in proper alignment, your core is able to fire optimally, and your posture is better ... you can train LESS to get the SAME results.
I also acknowledge the fact that I have been strength training for years and I have dedicated a serious amount of time to creating the body I desire.
That being said... I have had major success using this method with clients as well. ( Clients WITHOUT a HUGE strength training base).
This is not an infomercial folks, you can achieve and maintain an amazingly sexy, healthy, happy body with just three quality sessions per week!
First off you NEED to understand that this all starts with FOOD.
EAT REAL FOOD:
DON'T RELY ON THE CATCH UP GAME:
"If I eat this pint of Ben and Jerry's I'll just put in more time at the gym."
Playing catch up doesn't work.
In fact all it does it catch up to you, in the form of a time suck or an overuse injury.
HAVE A LITTLE FAITH:
When you are used to strength training 4 days a week, backing down to 3 can seem daunting.
Perhaps you run 6 days a week and you are so scared to let go of 1-2 of those running sessions for fear of your body turning against you.
ANSWER ME THIS...WHY ARE YOU TRAINING OR RUNNING IN THE FIRST PLACE?
What if one of the following happens to you because lets face it...LIFE DOES HAPPEN.
1. Maybe you get sidelined with an injury or sickness.
2. Maybe you start your own business and you realize that being fresh for your clients is more important to you and your livelihood than feeling tired and run down for your evening sessions.
3. Maybe you have a baby and life is turned upside down, and it's not just about YOU anymore.
4. Maybe you move and your commute just increased by an hour and your time is even more valuable than you ever thought possible.
The fact of matter is these 4 reasons are REAL and they are the most common issues I see clients struggle with daily.
The fact is that you can still look great and feel great :D
AS LONG AS YOU ARE WILLING TO BELIEVE IN THE MINIMUM EFFECTIVE DOSAGE!
I'll say it again...you can maintain an amazingly sexy, healthy, happy body with just three quality sessions per week!
Follow the above BOLD instructions and TAKE THE POSITIVES FROM EACH AND EVERY DIFFICULT EXPERIENCE AND RUN WITH THEM!
