I’ve been sitting at my computer for the past 10 minutes and can’t think of a single thing to write about.
As I said before, this happens every couple of months- I simply hit a wall and can’t piece together a single idea.
The reason for this mornings blank is that I spent the entire weekend completing my final assignments for college as they had to in for 9am today.
Loading up on coffee for the past 2 days and staring at a screen while trying to come up with great content is a mentally draining thing to do and my brain is fried as a result.
Anytime that happens a blast of random thoughts always makes for good reading so here goes.
- Excessive coffee gives you one of the fakest energy boosts ever- time to nail that bad boy on the head
2. I’m struggling to come up with any more points already- I think I’ll have a coffee!!!!!!!!!
Even though I know I shouln’t have one I’m still going to have one. The majority of humans struggle with this dilemma every day. Interesting.
3. Understanding your starting health and fitness level and progressing accordingly is one of the most undervalued secrets to achieving your goals. I’ve seen clients fully accept that they were in a bad place and work their way out of it week after week, month after month.
4. Just pulled a pear out of my pocket- a piece of fruit and a piece of protein make up the majority of my snacks.
5. Meet our new work experience student Brian- learning the ins and out of what it takes to be a coach.
6. Looking out into the gym at a client who’s undergone a massive health, fitness and physique transformation. What a great thing to be a part of as a coach.
7. Coach Duncan’s training him after returning to work from his 2 week holiday. Most people train for a physique goal and then turn into a pile of shit after it. This is usually because they didn’t have solid habits to fall back on after their program finished. After 2 weeks Duncan is still leading by example and looking the way coaches should- fit and healthy.
8. Here’s a picture of coach Adam so he doesn’t feel left out. If your goal is to become a more explosive athlete you need to set a baseline level of strength first. Power is a fast expression of strength so without it you’re missing a big piece of the pie. Helping athletes to build this foundation is a big part of our SPORTS PERFORMANCE PROGRAM.
9. The more I see clients completely overhaul their health and physiques the more turned off short term programs I become. For most people, short term programs deliver nothing of real value.
10. Had a client tell me recently her friend joined a gym and was pushed so hard by the trainer on her first session that she considered not going back. Thankfully we are seeing less and less of this approach- aren’t we?
Sorry guys but that’s my mental capacity challenged for the day. Time to move onto the next task for the day.
Talk to you next week.
