Only through consistent application of a program will benefits be achieved. Gains are accomoplished in small increments over time, especially, in the beginning and it is when looking back that the greatness through persistence is recognized.
Power will determine the intensity of a workout, too much can even cause damage, but without the sticking to the activity day after day creating stickitivity in action time is just wasted. Sure it feels great for a day and one could even pat themselves on the back for doing it. The results and the ultimate goal will still be elusive without stickitivity.
Bruce Lee always used the analogy of being like water, to take up the form of whatever we were put into.
By being like a river of water chipping away at a rock a little at a time, day after day, night after night, until the time that your path is wide and your flow strong. Find what will motivate the dream each day, that is the persistence that will create the Better You!
