Olympic Proportions

When watching the Olympics, have you ever thought, “Ooooo… That would be cool to do!” We recently met a group of ladies who decided they were going to do just that. Participate in the sports of the Summer Olympics.

The women of www.FWDoTheOlympics.blogspot.com , have made it their mission to complete each of the woman’s Summer Olympic sports, including, aquatics, wrestling, and weightlifting. That’s where we came in! We were contacted to be the host site of the weightlifting event these ladies were completing. They learned how to snatch and clean and jerk (telling us that clean and jerk was their favorite of the two).

Guilty Pleasures

Everyone has them…Even me. I know I preach to you all the time about eating good food and living forever, but at some point we have to realize that we are all REAL people and the guilty pleasures that plague you, also get me.

Let me share with you one of my guilty pleasures.

I’m drooling just looking at the picture.

The acceptance of guilty pleasures does not mean that I give you permission to go off the rails anytime someone dangles creamy, sweet, luscious, goats milk ice cream in front of you, but it does allow you to pick your battles. Also, depending on your current GOALS, you should make choices accordingly.

The Grind

Today’s message from the gym: Getting into the grind doesn’t sound like the most fun thing on the planet, but this is what, over time, gives you the best results. You train your heart out on a daily basis to see the results down the road. Immediate satisfaction is not the order of the day when you are in the Grind, rather long term commitment to accomplishing your goals is the key.

You have to understand that the difference between 120 kg and 125kg is HUGE. This doesn’t only apply to the weightlifters out there, but everyone that has a goal. Whether that goal is related to body composition, long term health, or physical accomplishment, you have to understand that physiological adaptation takes time.

We did not get to the state we are in right now overnight and as a result you will not see drastic changes over night. Think about this next time you get frustrated with your results: Try to step back, accept the process of training and put in your time on the Grind. It will pay off!
