Keep It Simple



“With all things being equal, the simplest explanation tends to be the right one.” - Occam's Razor

We often want the magic pill when it comes to meeting our goals. But most of the time there isn’t a quick fix for weight loss, strength gains, or mobility. The truth is that the way to get better at something is usually the simplest solution (and sometimes that’s the hardest route).

How many of us have heard Coach Jesse answer the question, “How do I get better at push-ups?” His answer, of course, is, “Do more push-ups.”

If you have specific strength or skill goals you want to achieve. The first step is to achieving them is to start optimizing your training schedule for those goals. For instance, I recently had a private training session with one of my clients who has been plateauing in his barbell lifts for some time now but was still coming regularly to class. So we did a deep dive into the type of classes he was attending and realized that he wasn’t attending ANY barbell classes.

So, what did we do? We made a plan to attend 1-2 barbell classes per week. The same thing applies to gymnastics or olympic weightlifting. Do you want to get better at your handstand? Commit to 1 Gymnastics class per week. Are you stiff as a board? Add a yoga class into your routine.

If you have more body composition related goals, the best thing to do is to reach out to your Coach For Life. That way you can set up a plan that is specifically tailored to you. What works for one person doesn’t necessarily work for everyone. Another good step is to start increasing your knowledge of the nutritional principles that other clients at Trebel find success with (What Should My Plate Look Like?The Zone Diet, Is Sugar Bad For You?). If you like actionable tips when it comes to nutrition, try to make your dinner plate look like this:

We find that the best ingredients for success no matter the client or goal are consistency, simplicity, and discipline.
