As I was sitting here, about to type up my intended blog entry for the day, something hit me:
Why is fitness in general such a mess?
Why is it that even though we KNOW more than ever, we're fatter than ever? Or less mobile than ever? Or quite simply, less healthy than ever before?
Let's be honest - there's a ridiculous amount of training information out there nowadays, and almost everyone has access to it. I spent 2.5 hours hanging out with Bill Hartman today, and I wish I could've audio taped the entire thing.
But that's not the problem. Lack of information IS NOT the problem. Quite simply, it's a matter of willpower and motivation.
You want to eat get lean - but are you willing to eat in such a way to achieve that goal?
You want to get strong - but are you willing to train your ass off, day-in and day-out, to achieve that goal?
Are you willing to get off your duff and do some mobility drills instead of sitting like Quazi Modo in front of your computer all day?
If anything, this is a call-to-arms. Quit blaming your lack of success, both now and in the past, on extrinsic factors.
YOU have the ability to change - but it takes a hell of a lot more than "wanting" to do it.
