This Blog will point out 2 different scenarios making use of this analogy. One client is complaining because he doesn't feel like he's getting stronger fast enough but he only wants to train 1-2 days a week and sometimes will make effort for a workout about 3x a week maybe 1 once a month. So he's getting what he put in, he's putting some effort to get muscle but not enough to satisfy himself. Once I exploited his efforts using this exact concept, he dedicated himself to training with me 2-3x a week and making a effort to exercising on his own 2x a week mandatory. My client recieved instant gains once dedicating his time and hard work into himself. Now exercising nearly 5-6x a week he was in full control of his physique and made proper time management for the gym.
My next client a professional model with a slim body composition wanted a change and to conquer fitness modeling. I told her we will have to put in the same work that top athletes do to build their image. Which was my way of letting her know it won't be easy, first starting off with program design consisting calisthenics, kettle-bells, martial arts, and yoga. Food diet was most important because her muscle growth was the most important, so high fiber, high protein was essential. When you do well on the gym and diet side you will get what you put in..I promise and if you want more try harder or work smarter.
