Weekend Warrior: Stay Consistent, Persistent, Resilient

“A month of consistency, trumps one day of power”

I always say, “I’ll never be the strongest guy or the biggest guy”. I don’t have to be a champion or a winner to succeed. I just have to beat one person – me. I do that by never giving up. Always trying. Always persevering.

Over the weekend, I am always tempted to skip my workouts. Instead, I go in anyway, even if it’s a light workout, because I know a month of consistency trumps one day of strength. Here was my shoulder workout from this weekend. Remember, it’s not just about having one good workout, it’s about doing it over and over and over again.
