All Aspects of Training Are Critical for Progress

Question: What is the most important aspect of training and making significant progress?
Answer: No single aspect of training can be overlooked when the goal is continued significant progress.
Intensity levels during your training is the foremost and most obvious. Without it, you’re spinning your wheels and going nowhere. Make the exercise and the muscle or muscle group being work your focus. Exhaust that muscle through various techniques that include both mass and volume routines.
Nutrition is a continual challenge that never seems to end if you want to grow. All three macronutrients, fats, carbohydrates and protein are necessary. Fats are used to make many of your body’s enzymes, carbs are used as the primary energy source and protein, amino acids rebuild muscle tissue after you destroyed it in the gym.
Water makes up over 60% of your muscle tissue and you have to continually replace it. The standard eight glasses a day, 64 ounces is a good place to start.
8 hours of sleep each day is required for growth. During sleep your body repairs itself. It uses the nutrients and water to rebuild, repair and grow tissue.
One final aspect that can’t be ignored is will. Your body will do whatever your mind directs it to do. Without will, you can’t attain greatness. Average is not an option and excellence requires commitment. When the pain of training seems too much to bear you have to choose to bear it. Without a clear picture of your goal and a do or die attitude, you’ll settle for less. Be more.
God bless and keep training,
Daryl
