Let’s discuss your comfort zone and what happens when you exist inside it’s little forcefield that protects you from things like soreness, fatigue and… results.

The answer: nothing.
Or, at least, very little.

But, this is kind of the way we like it, right? Comfortable is a couch or recliner, or your bed in the wee hours of the morning. And, hey, who doesn’t love that?

But…

If you’re operating in your workouts at a pace or an intensity that is “comfortable,” you’re cheating yourself. And I’d argue that you’re missing the point. Progress is made in that red zone just beyond “comfort.” And you know me well enough to know that I don’t mean a red zone that has you doing anything potentially harmful… nothing which would sacrifice that “delicious” form we constantly badger you about. I’m talking about breathing harder, sweating more, taking yourself that extra length for two more reps or giving that last ounce of energy. That’s where the magic happens. Taking yourself to that place is what’s going to get you where you want to be. So go there. Do more. If you have 8 seconds longer and your arms and chest are absolutely smoked, dig down and find 2 more push ups. Better yet, get 3. Nobody else knows. But you do.

Look, I can post videos and pictures and stories on this blog all day to motivate you, empower you and so on. Videos of guys without legs and arms climbing Kilimanjaro and wrestling… or commercials about guys playing basketball in a wheelchair… or girls sprinting with a prosthetic leg. And I hope it works to stoke the fire just a bit. But. Ultimately… it comes down to you. What do you want and how hard are you willing to work to get it.

If fitness and health were easy, we wouldn’t have the obesity epidemic we have in the US. Sitting on a couch, playing video games, sucking down “energy” drinks and wiping your greasy-fingered-Cheetos-paws on your chest is not what we are built for, as humans.

Be comfortable with the uncomfortable. That’s where you’ll find progress.

You know what’s comfortable? A couch. A recliner. Your bed in the early hours of the day.
