Have you ever had one of those workouts that left you feeling drenched in sweat, slightly nauseous, and oddly accomplished?
Yeah me too. They suck while you’re doing them, but they give you this odd sense of accomplishment when it’s over. Often times your body feels a little beat up or extra sore the next few days and that validates a job well done and results, right?
Well, not quite. Don’t get me wrong, those workouts have their place. They are fine to do sometimes, but our goal at Get Fit NH is to give you great training that you can recover from.
Why is that?
Let’s break it down to really understand the results. The 80-10-10 rule…
10% of the time you come in and you annihilate the training. You hit a PR, the weights feel light, and you’re just on fire
10% of the time you are massively dragging. Like you totally bribed yourself to get to the gym, you slug through, every weight feels like a cinder block and quite frankly, you’re just going through the motions…but you did it.
80% of the time though…this is where results live. 80% of the time you come in, you put your best foot forward, you leave and you come back recovered so you can do it again. Consistency wins results.
Do you think if you have training after training of PRs or barely being able to walk or laying on the floor trying not to puke you would come back feeling recovered and ready to hit another training? I’ll give a hard no on that one. It feels good to get a tough training in every now and then and see how your consistent effort is paying off, but it’s not sustainable in the long-term game.
On the flip side, make the most out of the time you are here. Understanding that not all days will be your best and some days you may be low energy, but those shouldn’t be most days. If it is most days then make sure you grab a coach so we can talk about external factors that may be affecting your performance. Nutrition, sleep, and stress management all play a role in results.
