80% results from 20% work?

I've just paid for my flight to Thailand in May to be part of an exclusive, 10 day, application only Fitness Masterminding supercamp with Dax Moy.

I have to say I feel like a kid waiting for Christmas! The supercamp is designed to bring together some of the brightest minds in the fitness game and make us better able to get the highest quality of work done on projects in supersonic time (as well as a bit of scuba diving, bungee jumping and chilling on the white sands but that's not important....)

If you're like me, you will admit that you waste a lot of time procrastinating on lots of different things!

It's often hard to just knuckle down and focus and get the important things done.

We choose the easier things which don't really bring any extra value to our lives.

It's the same with fitness - some people don't believe me when I say you can train more effectively in 20 minutes than in 60 because surely more is better?

The truth is if you look at any walk of life there is a magic rule which nearly always applies, known as the Pareto Rule (google it if you've not heard of it)

80% your productivity comes from 20% of your time.
80% of revenue in your business comes from 20% of your customer base.
You might have 50 friends but you'll find you spend 80% of your time with 10 of them.

Why is training any different?

You will more than likely find that the same rule applies to your exercise week.

For instance a heavy set of squats will do more for muscle building and fat burning than all the bicep curls, tricep extensions and wobbly gym ball nonsense put together.

Past a certain point extra reps and sets and exercises deliver little extra benefit because you're too tired to perform them with high intensity. You'd be better to go home and come back stronger the next day.

Take a careful look at what you've been doing and what results you've seen - were all the extra curls, sit ups, tricep pushdowns and slow cardio worth it?

Or would 20% of the training performed with greater 'oomph' delivered the same or better due to more recovery time?

Remember what Einstein said "Insanity is doing the same things repeatedly but expecting different results"

Apply to you?
