Workout Consistency vs. RX
This will be the difference between you getting great results for the rest of your life, and struggling to get the results you want for the rest of your life.
Here’s the difference… let me tell you a story of two athletes that I’ve had.
Jim is a really good athlete, but Jim gets busy with work a lot. Jim paid to be part of The Get Better Project and loves the workouts, but wishes that he could do them more often.
Because Jim is a good athlete, and excels at the Performance workouts when he’s doing them regularly, he tends to only do the workouts when he has time for the full Performance workout.
With Jim’s busy schedule he is regularly making excuses as to why he can’t workout. And even with the 1-2 great workouts he gets each week, he still can’t seem to get any closer to the goals he set when joining The Get Better Project.
The difference maker
Now we have Cathy. Cathy is also very busy, and could argue that she’s even busier than Jim. But, although Cathy had done some working out in the past, she didn’t have much of an expectation about being “good” at the workouts.
Cathy tries her best to do the Scaled Performance workouts, but the reality is she only gets to 1-2 of them a week.
But here’s the big difference, and why Cathy is GETTING AMAZING RESULTS…!!!
When Cathy has a busy day, she doesn’t hope that she’ll be able to get the Scaled Performance workout done, she just hops out of bed, has some water and coffee, and does the 15-30 min body weight workout in her living room.
OR when her day gets crazy and she isn’t going to be able to go to her gym… she keeps a kettlebell in her office, and just cranks out a Kettlebell/Dumbbell workout in the office before heading home at night (or during lunch).
Cathy would really love to get her Scaled Performance workout done each day, but she doesn’t care as much as just getting a workout done.
How about these numbers… after 12 weeks
After 12 weeks… Jim has done 18 really good workouts, which sounds respectable, but it’s not much when you think that Cathy has done 54 workouts!! Cathy has done 3 times as many workouts! True, she only did 18 Scaled Performance workouts (just like Jim), but all the body needs to stimulate change is something it’s not used to.
At the end of 12 weeks Cathy can’t believe how fast she’s achieving her goals, and Jim feels like he looks (and feels) exactly the same.
So, I know this might seem like common knowledge, but you might not realize how much you are missing out on by skipping your workout because you don’t think doing just a body weight workout will do much for you.
I’m here to tell you that doing something is ALWAYS better than doing nothing, and I can’t tell you how many times I’ve just done 50-100 burpees in the campground, hotel room, or living room and called it a day because that’s all the time I had.
Workout consistency is FAR more important than crushing an RX workout every once in a while.
Should you get after a hard workout whenever you can… YES, but don’t let not having time or equipment stop you from getting a good workout wherever you are!
