Intensity makes results.
Intensity + consistency will produce changes in your body.
Part of the reason I love training is to observe how the body reacts and responds to different strategies. It’s fun to try to figure out what will work best at any given time. No single approach works forever. Sometimes you just need to stack the machine and see what you can do!
The one constant despite any strategy however, is intensity. We know from research that some exercise is better than no exercise. That said - I see so many people exercise regularly at a low to moderate intensity and their bodies and performance don’t change much. That get’s boring, and it becomes hard to sustain without progress.
I’m in the business of changing bodies. That is not driven by pure vanity, although I embrace people who work hard to look their best.
That purpose is also driven by the fact that research also shows that improvements in body composition (more muscle and less fat) also reduces your risk for just about every disease known to man.
No pill, no therapy, no diet can do as much for you as effective exercise combined with good nutrition. It sounds simple, but why is it that our obesity rates continue to climb, only to hope that medical advancements can counteract unfitness?
Make health a priority. Without health, wealth doesn’t save you. I see it every day.
