Consistency

Consistency
March 21, 2018 Dan Raimondi

Train hard and be consistent. If you can do these 2 things you’ll go pretty far in regards to your physical development. It’s a platitude I’ve heard often over the years and it stands the test of time. There are of course other factors to consider when it comes to training, but lots of people are still working on the consistent and hard part first. This sounds contradictory because I talk often with people about the easy gains you make early in your novice progression. We start training with a conservative weight, and slowly titrate up. You gradually learn what it feels like to have heavier and heavier weights in your hands. We ease you into the process. Eventually though, it gets tougher. But, and this is the key takeaway, by the time you’ve gone through the novice phase, you’re much stronger. You’ll have a better idea of what training entails and you’ll be more informed about what it takes to keep going.
