Do It Every Day by Coach Chris Stankiewicz
Working out every day can seem like a daunting task, but it's an opportunity to break past barriers and improve. You don't have to spend hours at the gym to break a PR you’ve been chasing (although we love seeing you); all you need is a few extra minutes and a lot of consistency.
To use an example, let’s say you’re trying to get better at push-ups. You may decide to do 50 push-ups twice a week in effort to improve. As an alternative I recommend changing it into a fitness daily. For this example, you might do 20 push-ups every single day. Over the course of a week, you will have accumulated an extra 40 push-ups than you would have otherwise, but it’s more than that.
Those 20 push-ups will become part of your life. Where you may forget to do 50 push-ups one day, or be sore from doing them the next day, the 20 push-ups will be ingrained into your life and your body will adapt. Just as you walk every day, your push-ups will feel just as natural (almost).
This can apply to anything you want to get better at. If you want better mobility, do it every day. If you want improved mental health, meditate every day.
There may be some trial and error. If you feel like you are unable to recover, consider doing less, if you plateau, you can sprinkle in a bit more. Self-regulation is an important part of this.
The point however, is that if you are consistent over a long enough period of time, the only result will be improvement in what you set out to do.
So, pick something. Let it be a little intimidating because that’s where the most growth can be had, and trust your body to adapt and get strong.
