Their is a huge difference between being interested in something and being committed to something. Here are some health related things that I am interested in eating healthy, losing weight, and lowering my cholesterol. These are all things I should do but I am not committed to these things. I eat what I want and when I want. Sometimes I do eat things that will help me to be healthier, lose unwanted pounds, and lower my cholesterol but I love to eat and will continue to eat the way that I do until I have something happen where I really need to change my eating habits.
I am interested in eating grassfed beef but it is much more expensive than normal beef and for that reason I am not committed. I am interested in taking my various supplements on a regular basis Russian Bear Test Booster, Glucosamine, Garcinia Camobgia, Acai, Fish Oil, Flaxseed, Multi-vitamin, and whey protein but I am not committed to taking any of these regularly.
On the fitness side I am interested in running but not to run a 10 k or half marathon. I just want to be able to play Australian Rules Football longer and harder. Their is one thing with regards to my own fitness and health that I am committed to I am committed to getting more mobile, stronger, and more powerful.
What do I do to become more mobile, stronger, and more powerful? Great question I work on my mobility doing things I am learning from the Mobilty Project www.mobilitywod.com. I work on specific things for my hips, knees, ankles, shoulders, wrists, and lower back. I also subscribe to newsletters from experts like Eric Cressy the shoulder expert at http://www.ericcressey.com and Mike Robertson at http://robertsontrainingsystems.com.
I work on becoming stronger and more powerful by doing deadlifts, rack pulls, box squats, medicine ball throws, pullups, plyo pushups, kettlebell swings, kettlebell snatches, dumbbell snatches, bench presses, incline bench presses, lunges, hip thrusts, bulgarian split squats, cleans, snatches, and even box jumps. I follow guys like Louis Simmons, Dave Tate, Jim Wendler, Fred Hatfield Yuri Verkoshansky, and Mell Siff.
I may not be as strong as you, mobile as you, or as powerful as you but you know what I am stronger than I was last year, I am more mobile than I was last year, and I am more powerful than I was last year. You know what else I will be able to say that again next year. Find what you are interested in, commit to it, find the experts to help you and get it done.
