There is no substitution for hard work

"There is no substitution for hard work. You can have the most precision planned training program going, but it means fuck all and will achieve little without the right mindset and work ethic"   Well, here it is, my debut blog post, stand by. If you're easily offended by a little straight talking, you probably won't appreciate the way I write, so feel free to hit the exit button now. If not, read on….   I thought i'd make a start by embellishing on a few things i've written recently. The above is a quote from my Facebook page, which you can follow and like here (Shameless bit of self promotion here! ) I may as well throw in my website address too, ;-)   I see countless people walk into a gym, stroll around for an hour or more, jumping from machine to machine, attracted to the shiny bits of kit like a moth to a flame, barely break a sweat, and yet seem surprised that they aren't achieving the results they claim to desire. Reason? Because you're not fucking working hard enough! There is a far too familiar attitude I see where people think just turning up to the gym once in a while is like a magic pill that is going to get you into awesome shape. If it were that simple, then we'd all look like Hercules!   Heres another quote from my page - "Some people really do over complicate fitness. Learn to use your body, throw some heavy stuff around, breathe and always strive to be better" Training and fitness for the most part really is simple. Always train with an objective, and work fucking hard! (Do you see a pattern forming here?)   Find a program, and commit to it like your life depends on it. Get in, get shit done, and go home. Everything works, for a while, but everything needs the right level of effort and dedication. You will achieve nothing without it, and plus, in my world, anything worth having doesn't come easily. Learn to enjoy and embrace the pain of putting yourself into a deep and dark hole, because I tell you what, climbing up out of the other side knowing you've truly achieved something, that you went in hard and put in some fucking graft, feels amazing.   I'll leave you with a quote from my favourite film, Rocky IV: "You’re gonna have to go through hell, worse than any nightmare you’ve ever dreamed. But when it’s over, I know you’ll be the one standing. You know what you have to do. Do it."
