Stick around for one second because this is going somewhere...

Take a quick moment and open up YouTube... type in "rocks and sand Stephen Covey" and watch the first video that pops up.

What you hopefully take away from this video is that trying to fit in the little things around your current busy life will not work; you must first schedule and complete the large projects if you ever hope to get the little things done.

How does this apply to your fitness?

Your body works on the exact same principles that Stephen Covey has outlined. To be fit, healthy, have a great physique and get everything you want out of the gym, there is a certain order that must be followed.

Take the example of the high school strength and conditioning coach that we discussed in this episode... ALL of his athletes that spent more time on skill work (small thing) over developing strength (big thing) got injured more often and as time goes on got surpassed by athletes who were doing things the right way.

The lesson: you can't fake the correct order and fundamental building blocks of exercise.

The purpose of this podcast is to help you understand the order in which you should be progressing at the gym.

Here Is What We Covered

  • The physiology of exercise, and why it's important for you to understand the basics.
  • The correct order to progress at the gym. At least the very basics so you can take a quick look at what you're doing now and adjust accordingly.
