While training one of my clients one day, I asked her why getting a pull-up was more important than a chin-up for her.

 

Her reason was simple: “if I’m hanging from a ledge and can’t do a pull-up to save my life, I’d be mad at myself for dying that way.”

 

That stuck with me for awhile. And even more so recently, I had an email come in, as well as a conversation with my wife, about why I do what I do.

 

Why do I track calories every day? Even though, I could eyeball it or follow simple rules to stay in maintenance.

 

Why do I train five days a week?

 

Why do I constantly try and better myself?

 

It all has to do with values.

 

This is a bit of an update from a former post and early podcast episode.

 

But it’s not just about ME. I had an email come in from a listener and we chatted about why this—training, nutrition, and dedication—lifestyle is important to us.

 

In this episode I cover:

 

  • 80/20 Principle
  • You’re not alone
  • Finding your why
  • Our relationships with food
  • You may be someone’s inspiration
  • Watching my wife’s grandmother scuttle across the floor
