Good Things Take Time

Good things take time

I’ve recently begun to add some brief training discussions to my Instagram page. Instagram allows a maximum of 60 seconds per video so it’s a perfect platform for a quick message that’s easy to digest. If there’s any topics that you’d like to see discussed, please leave a comment or shoot me an email.

Below, I share some thoughts about the fastest way to build strength or get in shape. Long time readers of the site probably know the answer already, but it’s a message that’s often lost in an industry that is filled with nonsense.

As I’ve said many times before, there are no shortcuts, so stop wasting time looking for them. Slow and steady wins the race, so don’t delay your start in search of a miracle that doesn’t exist.

There’s no time like the present, so get your ass in gear.

  1. I have been training for almost 40 years. I just turned 61 and I’m glad I stick with it to this very day. I still make progress but at a slower rate. I push myself and enjoy the process. It’s a journey that I want to stay on until my last breath. As far as training topics I just bought a new weighted vest. It’s heavier than my last one. Maybe different ways to incorporate the weighted vest into training. The dos and don’ts. Whatever advice you give I know will be excellent as always. Thank you for the motivation.

  2. Having spent the last 25 years doing a variety of exercise regimes.. tae kwon do.. half marathon running.. more running.. then a year in a gym (losing 85 pounds) and then giving up for 3 years only to put on weight and get back into unhealthy eating…. Im now at the point of being determined )(once again) to get into shape…
    Just dont know how people find the time!

    So… right now, Im converting my garage to a gym… so far have got some cardio stuff in there .. a high end treadmill.. a cheap bike and cheap cross trainer… my next steps are to purchase a home gym weight bench unit and then some free weights..

    Weve put wifi in, heating, tv and an amazon firestick so we can watch TV while we train.

    Wish us luck. We have a wedding in 2 years and a holiday this year we want to get into shape for.. Will be following your blog closely over the next few months

  3. Hi
    I have always been in shape until my last two years and gained like 20 pounds
    I feel so heavy and so bad.
    I used to be so proud of my atletisism
    And stamina
    If i wasnt trainning boxing i used to base my sessions in a lot of skipping ropes (20 to 40 minutes depending of complementary routines) and abs
    My question is
    How much effect skipping ropes have in the knees?? I am getting 33 years old

  4. Would love to see some examples of your grip training, maybe how you split it during the week…? Said it before and I’ll say it again, you are easily the fittest (read: most well-rounded) person I have ever seen. Inspiring man!
