Strength training, like growing crops, takes time and dedication

I once heard a simple saying that applied to life and lifting: “You can’t expect to plant a tree today and harvest the fruit tomorrow.”
When it comes to our modern way of life, so many people want their results immediately. And when they don’t get it they get frustrated. That mindset has trickled into the weight room as well “” with all forms of “fads” sweeping the globe promising immediate results with half of the work or less. Imagine if our farmers decided to use countless chemicals and not tend the crops for adequate time, then sent us food half grown. It would be horrible. The same rings true in lifting weights and strength training.
If you want to attain the absolute best physical body, you need to follow the laws of the harvest:
– It’s going to take longer than you want to get what you want, so settle in for the long haul
– Chemicals may seem like the easiest way to get good results in the present, but they will show their negative traits down the road
– Doing it right is better than doing it fast
– Something is going to go wrong, guaranteed. When it does just regroup, re-plan, and get going
– There are ZERO substitutes for hard work
– When all else fails, see the rule above
This season make sure you mind is right so you can harvest the best fruit possible to show off at “market.”
