Prioritise Your Training

Are you worried about your chin up ability while you’re 20kg overweight? ⁣⠀

⁣⠀

Do you stress about your 2km times while you’re suffering severe lower back pain? ⁣⠀

⁣⠀

Are you concerned with how much you can back squat when you can’t sit comfortably in a deep goblet squat? ⁣⠀

Here’s how Coach Dan John helps you prioritise what you should be focusing most of your time on: ⁣⠀

⁣⠀

1. Fixable injuries and rehabilitation⠀

If you’re currently debilitated in one way or another, that’s the focus. There’s the fire and you want to put that out (as best you can). Working with injury specialists such as a surgeon or physio is what you should be taking care of. Most of your time should be spent doing the things that are prescribed to you by these specialists to help get you out of that pain. ⁣⠀

⁣⠀

2. Body fat⠀

It’s amazing to see the cascade of positives that come from a reduction in excess body fat. Running times improve, relative strength goes up, resting heart rate comes down, the vast majority of biomarkers will improve as a result dropping unnecessary weight. How do we do this? Focus on what you consume. Spend time preparing vegetables. Keep a food diary if it helps. Dropping body fat is about focusing your efforts in the kitchen. ⁣⠀
