Why you are not making progress

Your problem is NOT your workouts program…well for some of you it might be.

For some of you, who are not super active or part of a community-training program or have a real coach your issue might in fact be your lack of working out or lack of workout knowledge.

Even the best athletes in the world when left without:

A goal - Accountability - And a coach

They become fat, lazy and out of shape……Just look at many former football players.

The reasons why we see most people fail are tied to those 3 things as well these….

1 ~ Program jumping thinking you need to change your program every 30 days (news flash you don’t need to do that)

2 ~ You think you need to work out longer…. Trust me if you’re going hard I mean high intensity there is NO WAY and I mean NO WAY you can do HIIT training for 45-60 straight minutes with true high intensity effort and have any resemblance of proper form.  (Prove me wrong anyone)

3 ~ You think every day needs to crush you – (it doesn’t) there is a time place for that but everyday shouldn’t kill you

4 ~ You are  NOT tracking your calories – this is the #1 for many of you – calories matter just as much as squats, lunges, and pushing sleds do….so start tracking them today.

5 ~ Your quality of sleep sucks …..you need to be getting quality restorative sleep daily.

6 ~ You stress too much about everything …many of these things you can’t control – (stop doing this if you want to be healthy and happy) 

7~ You are not currently planning or preparing food for your week, work days, or when you travel, if you have NO plan for these things there is almost zero chance you can reach your full potential.

8 ~ You are not patient enough – eating right and working out for 30-60-90-120 days is NOT a long time. You need to give something 1-2-3-years and forever… that’s how you find success when you understand the journey is forever.

9 ~ You think you can just “maintain” there is no such thing you are either getting better or getting worse each day. You can’t coast, this is an uphill battle vs. time so you need to be making progress or you will keep falling behind – get out of the “”maintain” mentality.

10 ~ You are not honest with your efforts – many of us drastically overestimate how hard we train and underestimate how much we eat.  This is a recipe for disaster you can’t out train your diet even as hard as I work I can’t do it….so you need to be training right and eating right for your goals daily.

11 ~ FINAL Reason – we as people drastically over estimate how much progress and results we think we should see in 90 days while at the same time underestimate how much we can get done in 1 year….think about if you just committed to 1 year of a healthy lifestyle 100% all in how much progress you could make.

I could list 100 other things like, foam rolling, mobility, micronutrients; hormones and so on all of which are real reasons people struggle to see results.

But for the vast majority of people the 11 things above are the biggest culprits of your success.

My quick advice –

Get a coach and a community of people that gives a sh*t about you, knows your name, knows what you want to do and is never too busy to chat with you.
