Lesson 7: The Faster You Make Gains...

The term gains has been tossed around the fitness industry for a little while now.

What the hell does it even mean?

Well, that depends on who you are asking…

When speaking to my high school and college athletes, “gainz” is usually packing on more lean muscle mass. With heavy lifting and the help of supplementation, it is actually quite impressive how fast some of these athletes can make “gainz”.

But the real concern is can they keep them?

If you ask the average adult client about their gains, it usually involves gaining a better status of health. This better status of health can include weight loss, improved strength, increased muscle mass, improved performance, alleviation of medication, and/or reduced stress levels, to name a few.

Regardless of who’s making the gains, the same principle holds true.

The LONGER it took to achieve those gains, the more likely they are to STAY!

We have all seen that person who lost so much weight so fast, but they could not manage to keep it off.

We have all seen that person who is going to quit smoking on Monday, cold turkey, but on Friday night they smoke half a pack with ease.

We have all seen that person who got so big and strong seemingly overnight, but shortly after they weren’t so big and strong anymore. They may have even hurt themselves, trying to lift too much.

Look, we all want gains.

We wanted them yesterday! Since we could not have them yesterday, we want them right now!

Do you know when you should really want them?

In a year, in 5 years, in 10 years, in 20 years!

You want gains that are going to stick with you for the long haul, gains that are sustainable.

The only way to make sure you have sustainable “gains” is to make sure you have sustainable habits.

You become what you do a majority of the time. The majority is 80% of the time or better.  

If you spend 11 months out of the year doing whatever you want, but for 1 month you just about kill yourself to lose weight and get strong, you are missing the point.

That is not the equation for longevity.

A quick fix will leave you “fixed” for “quick” only.

Embrace the long haul!

Build the small and positive habits that you can repeat over and over again.

These small habits added up over time will make a BIG difference!
