Compete Every Day

Don’t worry about being better than “the other guy.”  Compete against you, every day.  Be the best version of you that you can possibly be!

Challenge yourself in the classroom.  Be the best student you can be.

Challenge yourself at work.  Be the best boss, supervisor, co-worker, or customer you can be.

Challenge yourself in the weight room.  Be better today than you were yesterday.

Challenge yourself in the gym or on the field, at practices and games.  Be the best athlete or teammate you can be.

Challenge yourself at home.  Be the best dad, mom, son, or daughter you can be.

Challenge yourself in life.  Be a leader.  Be the best person you can be.

“The principle is competing against yourself. It’s about self-improvement, about being better than you were the day before.” – Steve Young

4 Keys to Success in the Weight Room

2 Nov

Want to improve your athletic performance?  Practice your sport-specific skills, eat right, and get in the weight room (see 3 Pillars of Athletic Performance).  Developing your strength, speed, agility, and athleticism can help you create a competitive advantage.  Get STRONGER, Get FASTER isn’t just a tag line; it’s a requisite component of your preparation for your sport(s) of choice.

Don’t waste time in the weight room.  As the saying goes, “plan your work and work your plan.”  Be productive, challenge yourself, and strive for quality and efficiency.  Follow these 4 keys to achieve success in the weight room:

Accountability

It’s on you.  You are responsible for your development.  No one can do it for you.  What you achieve (or fail to achieve) is largely a matter of choice.  Showing up is half the battle.  Get in, do work, get out, repeat.

Discipline

Your actions should be consistent with your goals.  Consistency is the key.  Do what needs to be done, as well as it can be done, and do it that way consistently.

Competitiveness

It’s you vs. you.  There’s no need to compare yourself with anyone else.  Be internally competitive.  Strive to be 1% better today than you were yesterday.  Same goes for tomorrow.  The results, over time, will be impressive.

Motivation

Refer to your goals frequently.  Reflect upon your inspiration.  Think about why you’re doing what you’re doing every time you train.  Dedication.  Determination.  Desire.  You gotta want it.

Get STRONGER, Get FASTER!
