Comment of the Week
“The best training regimen is the one you will actually follow consistently.
A single, weekly game of beer-league hockey or ultimate frisbee or golf is nowhere near as effective as a Starting Strength NLP (or any other scientifically-grounded program) combined with a weekly game … but the perfect truly is the enemy of the good.
‘Fun’ is a great motivator, but it’s just a subset of ‘passion.’ Passions vary, but every successful exerciser has the passion to do whatever disparate training they choose with adequate depth and consistency.”
