Are you tired of having NO gains?
Working your butt off and NOT losing any weight?
Feeling the pressure of eating ONLY rice cakes and celery?
Hating your stair-mill because you aren’t getting anywhere fast?
Well, I have the easiest solution that NOBODY is talking about, and it makes me kind of annoyed. Most of my day is spent working with hard working youth athletes who have homework, and silly exams, and deadlines, and 4 practices a day. Do you know what is different about them in comparison to you? (I mean other than the 10-20-30-40 years between you?)
Nothing. Not one single thing. We all have jobs, we try to maintain our families from imminent meltdown, eat reasonably healthy, workout, maybe train for a 5k, and not crawl to deeply into a bottle of wine or bourbon once a week. The only difference is this.
As an adult we look at sleep as OPTIONAL
As a youth, sleep is MANDATORY (Thanks parental units 1 +2!)
Sleep is where we recover, and we clean out our brain of stress, and toxins, and all of the other things that keep us from losing weight, progressing our bodies where we want, and keeps us from being rational people with generally good intentions toward other humans. ( I mean even I get cranky on a 16 hour day on the gym floor.)
