No One Likes Homework...

Who likes homework? No one. We didn't like it in grade school and we sure don't like it now as adults. "Adult homework? What's that?" It's all the non-fun stuff we HAVE to do that allows us to do the fun stuff in life that we WANT to do; it's the unattractive tasks that are needed in order to make the sexy stuff possible.

We want to land a sought after position in our career, well we have to put in the effort, whether it's going to school or doing grunt work that will prove our worth. We want to go travelling or buy a nice swanky new car, well we have to put in the dues and earn money to make these purchases. We want to PR a snatch, well we have to work on mobility and strength so we can fight for the positioning that will allow us to support the additional weight over our head.

We want to lose weight, get shredded for the summer, or just tone up. That's right, you need to do your homework to achieve these goals.

If you follow along and have read our blogs posts for the last little while, you should know that we draw a lot of parallels from daily life and relate them to our training. Like most things in life, we often see accomplishments of others, whether it is career, family or fitness related and think, "wow, must be nice to be able to x,y,z"; what we frequently fail to take into account are the hours and effort they've put into their "homework" to be in the place they are now.

Doing your homework can feel like a chore because you have to actively choose to do these things in order to make your goals come to fruition. As we reach our goals and have tangible results from our hard work, it makes it all worthwhile.

Do yourself a favour and invest your time and effort into your homework. You won't regret it!
