Follow Blindly With Pride 2: Don't

I wrote a while back about following blindly with pride on fitness programs that are more experimental. There were a few things I admittedly was wrong about. Following blindly isn't the best idea to look for something to help you get the results you want. Learn what the program does and how it applies to the goals you're searching. Going in head on without learning is like jumping into a wrestling ring and not knowing a damn thing how to wrestle; you'll get your ass kicked.

Training should be about learning and venturing into something you can be interested in and getting results, if it doesn't work then you move on to something else. You may not know at first what you're getting into but start at the beginning, learn the basics and absorb what you can. Following without really knowing all the details can sever your chances of succeeding.

When I first truly learned about animal movements I was in for a shock how tough they were and I blindly went for the dice game and nearly passed out the first time. It was a tough lesson learned and I made a point to learn the exercises themselves before making the mark for a big workout. It paid off in the end and now it has helped me be in the best shape of my life.

Think of it this way, if you just jumped into olympic weightlifting and thinking because you've seen it done so easily by champions why not do the same exact thing. Let's face it if you don't have the basics and just lift without any mechanical training, you can end up hurt and you'll find something to blame for your failures. Follow the basics not the blind.
