And they forget food.

A new client started on Sunday, I introduced him to four guys I've trained. Some have trained for 6 months, some for 2 years. All are reasonably strong by community gym standards, but all of them have pretty much the same physique as they started with. The overweight guy is overweight, the stocky guy is stocky, the runty guy is runty, and so on.

Why? They didn't change their food. It doesn't matter which routine I give them or how well I coach their lifts - if their food stays the same, so will their bodies.

If you eat like a sparrow you cannot expect to be built like an ox. If you eat like a horse you cannot expect to be built like a greyhound.

Food is important, and failure to address it at least as thoughtfully as we address our programmes leads to stalled lifts and our bodies never changing.

I stole from Dan John: the answer to many of your questions is another question, what did you have for breakfast? Most people have a couple of bits of toast, some have (I'm not kidding) chicken mcnuggets. I've never seen their shopping lists, but I'm guessing Steve Reeves and John Grimek didn't have chicken mcnuggets for breakfast. If you can't even get the first meal of your day right then not much else is going to go right for you today.
