Speaking of variance, how much do you stray from your comfort zone during workouts? Does it always have to be the same music, shoes, warm-up, etc? If we are training for life then we better have some variance to our training. Life makes no exceptions for the kind of shoes you are wearing, whether or not you have a weight belt on, and it sure as heck doesn’t play hardcore rap or classic rock to your liking.
We want to perform the best in any and all situations, no matter the circumstances. If we’re going to achieve that goal then you as athletes need to be able to try new things, suffer defeat, and relish the opportunities you have in the gym every day.
In variance we trust,
