Make a REAL effort, get REAL results

When it comes to exercising for weight loss, we’ve talked quite a lot about what to do.

Get strong, then add a little cardio. Keep it interesting if you need that. Keep a logbook of your workouts. Maybe find a sport you enjoy playing.

he more important issue, the one we’re talking about today is the most important one. And that is, whatever you do, make a huge effort and do it with all your might. Don’t exercise like the people in the gym on the treadmill reading the newspaper while they stroll along at a top speed of one kilometre an hour. These people are kidding themselves.

Exercise is tough

That’s just the way it is. And if you want results you need to make it hard for yourself, or get a trainer to make it hard for you. It’s the only way to make progress, and the only way to ensure that you actually get something for all the time you spend doing it.

I don’t think exercising is worth it if all you’re doing is going in and punching a time card so you can say you did it. You need to become better. And better. And better. At whatever you’ve chosen to do. If you’re lifting the same weights in two years’ time that you are lifting now, what have you achieved? Nothing, that’s what.

Work up a sweat. Get tired. Feel like you’ve done work.

Make a real effort when you exercise. You’ll get real results that way. After all, that’s why you are doing it, right?
