Just “Getting Sweaty” Isn’t Intensity
Written by: Coach Slater
Mechanics and consistency are first, but intensity must follow. But, intensity is personal to you… meaning, what’s intense for one person might be not intense for you, or it might be too intense for you.
Furthermore, your level of intensity might change day-to-day; but, the only way to know intensity is to experience it. That discomfort — doing 5 more reps when all you want to do is stop — is how you become fitter.
Knowing that discomfort leads to vulnerability, which matters because only when someone is vulnerable do they open themselves to the possibility of change. Change is another word for growth, which is another word for progress, which is another word for evolution.
