Fail To Your Goals

A quick story about someone I trained/coached.

They had a goal of doing a pull-up. Which, for a lot of people is on their Fitness Goal list.

But the problem was, and usually is, they were not strong enough to get up and do one. Yet!

So, whenever they would come in, we would do our normal sessions. With a focus on overall strength. And at the end of every session, they would go to the pull-up bar and try a pull-up.

First time… no budging. Just hanging for a bit.

And that happened a lot.

We work out. They attempt a pull-up. Nothing.

And nothing.

And nothing.

And a little bend in the arm.

And a little more bend, but not there yet….

And we just kept working out. Building strength. In their core, arms, back, and grip. Lot of deadlifts.

And one day, after a workout. As they were cooling down. We’re talking, and as normal, they go to the bar.

And without skipping the conversation, they hit a pull-up.

“YOU JUST DID A PULL-UP !?!?” — Me

That’s what failing to your goals is. Yes, you can get discouraged. You can be angry. You can be frustrated. Failing sucks.

But it’s the failures, over and over again, that leads to your success.
