Before you 💩 on New Years resolutions...

Lately I've been hearing a lot of noise about how to stick to New Year's resolutions or how someone "Isn't Going to Bother because I'm just going to quit in a week".

Well, before you load up your reasons to not try, let's play a game. I'm going to give you two options and you have to pick one....

Strength and barbell work
TB didn't start with a 275 lb Back Squat

Option One is a 60 year span where you have zero days of dialed in nutrition, zero days of strength and conditioning training. Option Two is a 60 year span where you have one full year of super dialed in training and nutrition.

Clearly, most people would pick Option Two. Something is better than nothing. Let's tie this into the New Year's resolution. If you stuck to a high level resolution for 1 week, each year, from the age of 20 until the age of 80 you would end up with over a full year of the best training and nutrition you could imagine. That's it, just one week out of each year.

We often hear how people quit before they ever start because they feel like they just can't do enough. "Well, I can't get to the gym enough, so I'm not going at all."

"I can't stick to clean eating so I won't have any clean meals at all." Do what you can right now and deal with the future when it gets there.

A successful basketball coach once said to me; "Nickels and dimes make dollars too".

I would take that a step further and say you can't have dollars without nickels and dimes.

It is the small steps that gets anything done.

So do that New Year's resolution and shoot for the stars. Take it as far as you can. You might just surprise yourself. If you drop it, that's fine, at least you did something. If you can't get to the gym four times a week, that's fine, just go once, at least you did something. If you do that time and time again you'll end up in a much better position than if you never try at all. Focus on today's nickel. 🖐️
