In short…. Yes! Now quit complaining, pick up that bar and go…
Seriously though, all emperical evidence, and countless studies have shown that the only way to see the remarkable adaptations that we see is to go hard. If you’ve been through any of our workouts you know how hard they are. They are designed to tax everyone to the limit. They challenge strength and metabolic systems concurrently. The results speak for themselves.
Take a look at the high performers in the gym. Note the state they are in at the end of the workout. Do they coast through their workouts because they are natural athletes. Nope, they push to the limit every time. These folks are not genetically gifted freaks, they are hard workers. They ignore the little voice in their head saying “just back off a little, you really don’t have to do this”. Instead listen to the really loud voice coming from their trainer, pushing them to take that next step, complete the next rep. Push on, and finish!
If you want to get to the next level of fitness it is going to require discomfort. Any program that promotes “the easy way to fitness, weightloss, six pack abs, whatever” has a very limited view of what fitness is. We are training for life. We are training to be a better you. We are training to be more useful, and to be better at everything we do. This improvement comes at a cost. You must pay in sweat and pain. You must ignore the self-doubt. You must get yourself up and into the gym when you are already sore knowing that you’re going to work hard yet again.
I really can’t express how proud of all of you I am in text. The acheivements we’re seeing are fantastic. Keep up the hard work, and push to the next level. We’ve never had anyone look back at a week and say “I wish I had taken it a bit easier last week”. The challenge is worth it, the rewards are incredible. Yes, we need to work this hard, and we will keep providing a program to get you to the next level, and the next.
