There is this culture of emphasising wonder exercises or supplements or diets to get the results, but that is all bullshit. It’s mind-set. The tool is useless without the intent. We get too caught up in what to do. What exercise is the best, what diet is the best, etc.? The reality is that many people achieved great results be it in gaining muscle, strength, speed or losing fat. All by different methods, what these people do have in common is mind-set. INTENT. The will to get the results they want. Think of a fight, you can be a skilled martial artist, know hundreds of techniques, but if you have no intent to do harm with those technique you will not stand a chance against a less skilled person with violent intent.
Tools and location is secondary to intent:
The same applies to exercise. You don’t need complex tools or methods. I’m not saying complexity is bad. What I am saying is the mind-set makes the tools effective. If the mind-set is not there the tools are less effective. You have to truly want to get stronger. Your goal should be a must. Ross Enamait wrote an article about the success of the Mongolian Judo team. Their training is simple, effective and has intent behind it. Have intent behind you actions. Every session is a chance to get better, every rep of an exercise is a chance to improve. Use it!
