I try to keep up

I was reconsidering my training today. I was thinking about some goals I set for myself. Overhead squat goals, snatch goals, goals to increase my shoulder press. As I looked at the goals I have set and then looked at the training I am doing, things did not seem to match up.

As I teach my students in my goal setting workshop, you either change your actions to meet your goals or you change your goals and reassess your actions. Make sure you are on track.

If you want A, and you want A bad enough, and you are taking B actions steps because you are "trying to keep up," it is time to make a decision.

Sometimes you have to move against the grain to get yourself where you need to be.
