***What happens in the 21-23 hours you spend outside of training?
Exercise is simple. The problem is the belief that one can out-exercise bad habits. Coming into the gym and working on your abs for 20 minutes won’t fix the slouching you’re doing in your office chair or car the remainder of the day.

What separates the people who become better athletes reaching their goals and those who plug away on the elliptical never to see results is the answer to the above question. What are you doing outside of the gym to make yourself better?

The reason people never progress is because of a lack of dedication. Dedication requires discipline and slowly but surely that word is being eroded from our culture. In the realm of fitness and health, dedication isn’t dutifully exercising for an hour a day, 3-4 times a week. We call that a habit. Dedication isn’t hitting the gym once a day then going out to drink the night away. Dedication is heading home early because you have training in the morning. Dedication isn’t sitting for 8 hours a day in front of a computer then heading home to “relax” on a couch staring at the TV. Dedication is spending your night mobilizing, stretching, hydrating, and preparing for the next day of training. Dedication is eating chicken and vegetables while your buddies order pizza because you’re well aware of your grain intolerance. Dedication is knowing what your weaknesses are and working on those rather than your strengths. Dedication isn’t a word to be used lightly.
Dedication is a lifestyle.
If you want to be a better athlete, better human, better anything. You need to fully grasp the concept of dedication. Otherwise you’ll continue on the path you are currently on.
