The (Fitness) Game Within the (Fitness) Game

We see it clearly from the outcome side, right? When we train, we want progression. Folks most specifically want progression in how our body looks. We want progression with what we are capable of in the gym. We want progression with how we feel. You get it. 

The million-dollar question, of course, is “How?”

While this might seem obvious, you’d be surprised. The behavior that most specifically yields progressive results is progressive action in the process. That means you can’t keep jogging the eight hundred meter run route the same way. You can’t keep grabbing the same kettlebell for every workout.  

You’ve literally got to drive adaptation. You, the student, the user has more control here than most assume. If you want progress, you’ve got to drive progression in the loads you select and the intensity you exude. 

Process must progress if you want results to progress. 

You’d be surprised at how many people get into a groove. They work as hard in training as they did last year, and they’ve got the same weight on the barbell that they had last year. Yet, there’s confusion as to why their results haven’t progressed. 

Training is not magic, people. You’ve got to change yourself.
