With a resounding sign of relief, another page in the calendar turns as we enter September. Though I know many will consider my commentary near heresy, I am glad to say goodbye to August and those lazy days of summer as it is time to punch the pedal down.
It goes without saying that I have done my best of dressing up a more reserved exterior or last covering a very aggressive approach in much of my personal life as well as career. As many reading have heard, when the doorway of opportunity is in front of you, don’t tap meekly and inside kick the damn thing down.
Kicking the door down is both an old-fashioned, roll up your sleeves approach that needs to be re-invigorated but also a simple approach. It is the team that steps up the line saying, we’re running tackle to tackle and there isn’t a damn thing you can do and in many a way the approach of those who despite all odds excel because they out work the opposition.
Yet kicking the door down often involves a sense of “simplicity” that plays a major role in the success of home training environments.
“Simplicity” does not only apply to diet but equally to exercise patterns as most are making the error of over-complicating matters. A simple pull-up bar, possibly rafters in a garage, box which in my case are stacked granite and stones, medicine balls, skipping rope and basic barbell can do the job quite well.
