Last night I was talking to Jen, and we were discussing the framework of programs and how ideally the best program isn’t 3, or 4, or 5 days per week, it’s exactly as many days as you can train while still recovering adequately to do it again. But, in most cases a 3-day per week program is an adequate trade-off.
This led into a discussion of biofeedback and how we condense other things we teach at our gym, The Movement Minneapolis, into a program that you could simply follow.
And the reality is there are so many things that we teach people that simply can’t be distilled into a neat and tidy package you can follow and here’s why:
It might take you 4 weeks, or it might take you 4 years.
What we teach and offer, the framework for engagement and recapturing total autonomy over yourself is something that sometimes clicks for people in the first month, sometimes takes a few months, and often takes many years to adopt.
And you know what the only common denominator is in that? Showing up.
Showing up is the program.
Continuing to engage on a daily basis is the program.
If I handed you a program and told you it would take you somewhere between 4 weeks and 4 years to see results you wouldn’t be very likely to adopt it.
But if I can get you to just keep showing up, day after day, and get you to ask one question at a time, you’ll see the big changes.
Maybe some day we’ll figure out how to break out all these pieces and make them into their own individual discrete components that you can follow. Maybe.
This of course doesn’t just apply to the incredible things we teach at The Movement. It applies to anything where there is a lot to learn but very perfectly laid paths to learn it.
In the mean time, if you want to see the big changes, if you have a vision on the horizon that you can barely make out I have one piece of advice for you: keep showing up and engaging.
