Ego, Your Enemy In The Gym

Check Your Ego At The Door

ego-is-the-enemy

The biggest killer of your results in the gym isn’t a poor diet, inconsistency or whether you’re taking a mountain of supplements or not.

Yes, these factors will have an influence your results….

But no-where near as much as your ego will.

Your ego is the enemy.

Your ego will have you swinging weight with momentum, ensuring you’re not applying any form of progressive overload.

Your ego will have you neglecting dynamic stretching and foam rolling, as you’ll convince yourself that you’re not one of the people that needs to warm up or work on your mobility.

Your ego will have you constantly increasing the weight you’re lifting, regardless of how much your form and range of motion suffer.

Regardless of whether you’ve been paying your gym dues for one week, two months or three years you’ve never eradicated your ego completely.

Leave your ego at the door.

Progressive overload, full range of motion and compound exercises.

These will get you where you want to be in terms of size and strength, there’s no way around that.

I’m SJ. I’m a fitness enthusiast and published author. I transformed my body from a skinny fat 135lbs with 18% body fat to a solid 192lbs at 8% body fat. I became qualified in a field I was passionate about. I founded several online businesses that allow me to pursue ideas and projects in my life that I am passionate about without having to constantly worry about money. I published several eBooks explaining the training and dieting techniques I used to achieve the body I have today. I learnt a plethora of new information on dieting and fitness by reading and applying what I read, to find out what does work and what doesn’t work, because as I’m sure you’ve noticed the health and fitness industry is full of non-sense claims and BS. I found out what was true and what worked for me and applied that knowledge. And you bet I had fun during the whole process.
