The Bigger the Base, The Higher the Peak

November 18, 2019

One day I’ll write a book.

 

It’s half the reason for the pile of blog posts I've written over the last few years.

 

Writing a book isn’t complicated, just lots of words put in a certain order. Writing a book worth reading is. One worth remembering, worth sharing, worth building a philosophy around.

 

And to do that I know I have to build a base of learning, face-to-face work, reading, writing and practice. 

 

Reps, reps, reps.

 

 

 

The same goes for training - it’s not complicated. 

 

In order to do the cool and fun things you see on the Internet, you have to do the basic things very well.

 

  • Spell out the alphabet before using sentences.

  • Crawl before you walk before you run before you jump.

  • Learn how your body moves before you try to mimic how someone else moves.

 

You have to build your base first. The big foundation to build on. Without a big base the structure will topple eventually when someone or something comes to push it over.

 

With most new clients we spend at least the first six weeks building the base. Exercises are simple and progressive, there’s nothing fancy, we do what works.

 

Reps, reps, reps.

 

 

 

Too many skip the base building and jump straight into an F45 class. Three weeks later they quit with a shoulder niggle, lower back pain and find they can’t bend their left knee properly anymore.

 

Any results they achieved are temporary.

 

And last but not least, building your diet foundation.

 

There’s no diet more powerful than the one that you already are eating. The solution is in the routine. 

 

Two fewer drinks, one less snack, drink more water.

The habit of choosing the right thing over what your short-term gratification brain wants. 

 

Reps, reps, reps.

 

 

You don’t have to change a lot... to change a lot.

 

Just start building your base.

 

Soon you’ll be standing at the peak, beaming with pride.
