Routine Fitness: Merely Do the Work

Summary

The secret to health, fitness, and performance is to make it boring. Routine fitness makes consistent progress, but requires a mindset shift.

Inspiring Quote

Those who know me well know I’m a big Seth Godin fan. After taking his altMBA in October 2018, I’m fully bought in. When I see him on the internet, I click, read, and listen.

He’s come out with a new book, The Practice, which I’m excited to read, but his related appearance on Tim Ferriss’ podcast #476 is excellent.

Tomorrow morning when you wake up, you probably won’t feel like engaging in the practice, and if you do, you probably won’t feel that way the next day. That what we do is once decide. We decide that we’re a runner, and runners go running every day. We decide we’re a blogger, and bloggers blog every day, and that decision lightens the cognitive load so much because there’s no time, no reason to negotiate with ourselves because we already had the meeting. We already decided. Now the question is not should we go or not. The question is should we go left or right, but we’re going.

Fitness Requires Routines, Not Willpower

In fitness, the people who are most successful at losing weight, gaining muscle, and increasing their performance don’t use much willpower. Instead, they merely do the work required.

Side note: here’s more about willpower and fitness.

Instead of fighting battles every day, blaming your reflexes for making those sweets so delicious, what if you removed all decisions?

What if you said, “I am not a person who eats sweets except for special occasions.”

It’s not the rare moments — the birthdays and holidays — that stop fitness goals. It’s the everyday actions.

Everyday actions are routine by definition.

Are your routines helping or hurting?

How can you make your fitness more routine?

“Einstein” of Physical Therapy Completely Reboots His Bionic Body and Mind

He’s the perfect blend of intellect and creativity, a true modern-day Einstein…

Working all day, reading two extra hours (at least) every night, eating an anti-inflammatory diet, and working out every day… while still finding time to have fun with his wife and friends. Everyone wonders how does he do it?

He’s unparalleled. And that’s why he’s so well-respected.

And after losing almost 40lbs, he’s ready to share his method — rooted in science — to help you become the person we all strive to be.

After realizing he wasn’t practicing what he was preaching, Bill Hartman, PT, decided to make a new system for total body and mind health — a path to clarity (without all the foo foo B.S.).

I remember him telling me about his diet: “I was just sloppy.”

Health tips and facts, though true, simply aren’t enough for most people. Everyone knows they SHOULD eat more vegetables, but how is that possible with a busy work schedule, ambitious goals, and a need for social connection?

To make health change, we need rules and structure…

That’s why the ALL GAIN, NO PAIN system was born. Principles — commandments, even — to minimize your pains and maximize your gains.

Having worked with him for almost a decade, I have no shame telling you Bill is a present day Einstein (except Albert didn’t have two fake hips and a rotator cuff tear). Also, he’d kill me if he knew I was calling him this… on the internet, no less. Shhhh this can be our little secret.

The ALL GAIN, NO PAIN system is about:

  • Losing the excess fat you don’t even know you have (in addition to the fat you are painfully aware of)
  • Maintaining (and even building) your physical strength in spite of your aging body
  • Optimizing sleep to always feel energized and ready to go, whether that be for work, play, or bedroom activities (like, you know, hanging a picture frame)
  • Reducing inflammation to make your knees, back, and other joints feel 30 years younger
  • Finding your routine to organize your life (and mind) for clear thought
  • Spending your precious remaining life hours on important things to leave your legacy and impact the world

If you’re ready to take back control of your life… lose the weight… exterminate the pain… be maximally productive…

Just adopt the ALL GAIN NO PAIN system. It’s already proven! Don’t waste your time and energy reinventing the wheel; spend it making yourself better.

ALL GAIN, NO PAIN is available now on Amazon as a Kindle book for only $4.99. Read it on your Kindle, phone (with the Kindle app), computer, or even iPad starting immediately.

I read this book in a single sitting.
