Train Hard 5 Principles that Guide our Efforts

TRAIN HARD: THE 5 PRINCIPLES

Prin-ci-ple | noun
1 a fundamental truth or proposition that serves as the foundation for a system of belief or behavior or for a chain of reasoning

-Webster's

1) Scale to the Scales

It is an inescapable reality that we are constantly trying to balance the stress of our lives with our adaptive energy. For a training practice to make a positive contribution to our lives, it must be scalable so as to respect this reality.

2)  Technique is for Safety and Intensity

Everyone knows that good form is for safety, but really strict form ensures intensity.

3)  Fatigue is our Primary Tool

In every other endeavor of our lives, we resist fatigue, but in training, we need to embrace fatigue since we must become temporarily and acutely exhausted in order to stimulate an adaptive response.

4)  A Novel Challenge is the Minimum Effective Dosage

At minimum, you must work harder than ever before or do something different than you ever have, in order to stimulate an adaptive response.

5)  Muscular Failure is the Peak Experience

To be absolutely sure that you are getting the job done, you must be willing to go right up to the threshold, the horizon line, and be willing to go over it.
