Do What Works For You!

Have you ever tried to do something and couldn’t do it to a T and quit because you weren’t “perfect” with everything you were supposed to do?

I have spent over twenty-five years strength training, competing in MMA, and personal training individuals for the last 15 years.

Having this experience behind me, fitness is relative to the individual.

For example, I was having a diet conversation with a new client yesterday and going over his habits.

He asked me if he would see the desired results with his current diet.

I informed him that his protein intake was a little low, but he would still see results from what he did without eating more protein.

I told him in an ideal world, yes, he should be getting more protein.

The problem with the ideal scenario for building muscle for this particular client is he is a working professional and most likely needs more time and inclination to track and eat more protein with his current diet.

Many variables come to play with your level of fitness.

How much sleep you get, your stress levels, and of course, your diet is only three examples.

When was the last time you were on point with all three examples?

If you are like most people, you are not on point with every variable, which is ok.

You’ll have days where you don’t sleep, eat lousy food, and do things that aren’t conducive to your fitness.

Your fitness is a paradigm and is different for everyone.

If you are eating less protein than you should, it is ok if it is not ideal.

You still try to do your best, whatever version of YOUR best is.

Don’t compare yourself to others; don’t expect yourself to be perfect with everything you should be doing.

Fitness is a practice such as law, martial arts, or medicine.

There is no attainment of perfection, but you are constantly striving to achieve perfection.

That is why you TRY to be a better version of yourself.

If you practice this mindset daily, you are on the right track.
