Helllllllllllllooooooooo!!

Relentlessness. That is the second word of the weekend. I'll keep this one much shorter than the last. It is pretty straight forward in what it means, but it can be used in many ways in the gym and in life. 

In life and in the gym you can't go 100% all out, all the time. If you can, give me the secret potion, and we'll sell it and make millions together. You need to have days that are more relaxed, you need to have deload weeks, you need to have vacations, you need to be turned off sometimes. But when you do something, do it with the best of your ability. Be relentless in your pursuit of being the best mover in the gym, relentless in your pursuit of that squat PR, relentless in how you want to live your life. Hell, even be relentless in knowing how to turn off and take those rest weeks. 

As a coach I need to be relentless in making sure you are your best in the gym on any given day. Just because you lifted more, doesn't mean I did my job. How did you lift it? Did you enjoy lifting it? Did you learn from your mistakes if you failed? When it comes to coaching I must be relentless in my pursuit of better movement and when I am training I must ask more of myself in how I do things.

Do them better, every single day.
