Long vs short term goals and adaptations

So... let's make something clear. Going after some nutritional goal (or any fitness-related one) should be done on a clear head and trying to not let ourselves fall for any of the ilogic reasonings out there. If we fail to have that one principle clear, it is very likely that we'll end up putting ourselves on some nasty situations...

.

.

A nasty situation is not a synonimn of not achieving any improvements. Most likely any change you make that is better than what you have been doing lately will provide some sort of benefit. For example: if you haven't trained in a looong time and then start doing something, even if it is not "ideal", it'll be far better than doing nothing

.

.

But the smart approach should be to try and get the most benefit from the changes I'm going to make. And here's where many people lose it: we believe that the change we look for is going to happen overnight and that the more intensity I put into, the faster I'll get to my goal...

.

.

It might work sometimes. Yeah... you may see some improvements. But most of the times it just doesn't happen (or does so for a little period of time). It ain't hard figuring out why: we put our body through a caloric restriction (not a "friendly status") at the same time that we push it harder in the gym and, for the final touch, we completely forget about the importance of the natural times of recovery (basically a good night sleep)

.

.

In sum: we push our bodies harder while feeding it less and reducing sleep quality and/or quantity (and take into consideration that a good night sleep may be THE BEST "supplement" you could take...)

.

.

"Oh... I feel so tired..." "Oh man my strength is falling..." "Heck... I think I broke something..." NO SH*T EINSTEIN... WHY WOULD THAT BE???🤔

.

.

You ain't gonna make in a month (or two, three or six) what may take YEARS to achieve. I WISH that all that took for having steel-glutes were a couple of squats during a few weeks or some slacky push-ups for having a chest like Rambo. But it just DOES NOT WORK THAT WAY!! Please let's stop hoping for something that just isn't real.
