Tried and True
There’s a problem in the fitness industry. Everyone wants the next new thing, the latest and greatest trend that’s going to get results faster. The next guru who will promise the results you need, after drinking her detox tea for 30 days. It’s gross. It plays upon you, the consumer, to keep trying the next thing, hoping the quick results will happen this time.
Unfortunately there are no quick results. If we want to make long-tern, permanent change, we need to put the work in. There is no way around it, no guru’s tea, no Instaceleb’s booty workout program or hot-pilates-yoga-flash-burn-HIIT-with-goats that will bypass the work ethic required.
Strength and Conditioning is tried and true. It’s been around for a hundred years and we know it works. It would be the most boring, non-effective infomercial ever: use this barbell, with thoughtful form, 3-4 times a week for 3 years and you’ll get stronger!
No one wants to admit the commitment has to be long term. If we’re going to make a change, we all need to realize that there are no shortcuts. We need to stick with something for a long time. Whatever that is for you, great I’m on board. I’m just not convinced some of these new methods or diets are going to stand the test of time like strength and conditioning has.
