Get Under The Bar, Princess

We’ve all heard the 10,000 hour rule. Easy concept.

What most of us don’t have is the 1 hour thing down. We fail to move forward at all.

The thing is, momentum, velocity, speed, rate, all of that boils down to getting reps in on a consistent basis. I think of this as my ‘rate’ when thinking about metrics that matter to me: training sessions per ___, days read per ____, etc. It’s usually ‘per week’, but I think ‘per month’ or even ‘per year’ are better. They keep us thinking long, yet finite, terms. There are infinite weeks left, in my mind. There are a handful of months and years left. Hence there is more weight to ‘sessions per year.’

It all boils down. Talking about metrics and understanding don’t actually get us anywhere.

Get under the bar, princess.
