For some of us it happens more often than we'd like. How many times have you found yourself in this situation ..you're making massive gains in your speed and strength. It's been a solid few weeks/months/cycles/whatever and you haven't deviated from the course or rationalized quitting. Then...*poof* you're gone.
This may not pertain to all of you. Or even be a huge deal more than once or twice a year. But, it's still something that I get asked on a weekly basis so I figured I'd share some of my tactics. And what do you know, I'm currently living in an hotel for the next 4ish weeks. Funny how that works.
Your best bet to staying sane while trying to eat healthy and mostly cheap while in a hotel is by staying boring and basic.
Yeah, we all want a ribeye with grilled asparagus all of the time. But some of us don't want to lug around a grill wherever we drive, and others don't feel like going to the local park in 10-20 degree weather just to grill a steak.
I sipped on my beer. He was telling me how he had made some changes to his plan for playing professional baseball. He had his shit together, that was obvious. But I could tell by the way he explained things that he wasn't sure about his choices.
"Listen," I as I took another sip."You can sit here and debate with yourself about the best training program all day, but you're not going to get anywhere from just that."
He was making the same mistake I was making at 22. Searching for the "perfect" program. Thinking that adding more was the answer, and trying to work every single muscle into every workout.
It's frustrating, I know.
"You need to stop trying to create the perfect program and start doing the optimal program."
