In my introduction I told you about my history of fitness training. I described the hours I spent at the gym in pursuit of my ideal physique. The problem at the time was that I was asking myself the wrong question. Instead of asking myself “how little do I need to workout to trigger results” I was asking myself “how much do I need to workout to get results.” There is a BIG difference between both of those questions! Which question do you ask yourself?
Another way to think about it is as follows: You need to cover a distance of 1 mile. You can walk that mile or jog it or run it. Whatever method you choose, the end result will be the same: you covered 1 mile. The difference is the time it takes you to cover that mile. Hopefully you run quicker than you walk, in which case you’ll cover that mile in much less time than if you were to walk it. Which method is the most efficient method to cover that mile? Well, if you said take a cab, then you’d be right!!
All kidding aside, efficiency is described in the dictionary as the quality of doing something with no waste of time or money. How efficient are your workouts? How many days a week do you spend in the gym training with weights and doing cardio? And what kind of results do you see from those efforts? Are you being efficient with your workouts?
What drives me crazy is when I go to the gym and see the same people, day in and day out, doing the same strength training routine and the same cardio program and never changing!!! They spend hours and hours a week in the gym and they look exactly the same every week!!! Do you know anyone like this? What’s the point of spending all that time working out and not getting any significant results? No wonder people get mental confusion when someone tells them that the thing they’re missing in their workouts is muscle confusion.
If training is done correctly, results will occur steadily and consistently. Your body is programmed to adapt to external stimuli. I used to tell my clients that if you looked the same over a two week period, then something was wrong. Keep training correctly over a period of a few weeks, and this will produce a good transformation. And kept up over a period months, the transformation can be truly amazing!
