ZEN+ : Simple, Direct, Effective : ZEN+ Benefits

It’s a cinch by the inch…

The Sunday Quote:

“Little things make big things happen.”
Coach John Wooden

When it comes to health, I’ve noticed folk do a lot of crazy things…

And I don’t just mean:

And so on.

Ugh, ugh.

I mean they go from doing nothing – or next to nothing – and turn it up to 11.

For example…

S’pose you don’t move very much during your day.

Your moving consists mainly of walking from:

And varying combinations of the list above.

Oh, and perhaps you walk from your house to the car and back again?



Imagine this person then decides they’re gonna move more.


It’s a fantastic idea, one to be applauded and supported.

And even better, after watching some health program on TV they’re all fired up and good to go.

So what do they do next?

Yeah, they go for a two hour power walk.

Can you see the problem?

I’m sure you’d never do anything as silly as this.

But I have.

Frequently in the past.

So I ain’t pointing any fingers.

My favourite example is not going to the gym for years and then going back and trying to pick up where I’d left off…

I’m lucky I didn’t end up in hospital.

But I see this kinda thing a lot.

Good people see some super fit dude or dudette on TV or the Internet telling them how easy it is…

…They get all fired up…

…Go from doing nothing to doing too much.

And all they get is aches, pains and injuries.

Which leads them to the conclusion exercise is too painful and quit for another decade or so.

It breaks my heart.

So let me give you a better example:

A few months ago Ollie told me he’d like to start getting stronger.

So I worked out a simple:

Callisthenic’s routine for him to do.

Let’s look closer at his squat…

Each week I add another rep and when he gets to 2 sets of 10 reps I lower the height of the bench he sits on.

These small steps mean he will get to doing full body weight squats.

Might take him a few months, might take him a year.

Who cares as long as he’s making sustainable progress and not getting beat up in the process?


Here’s what I suggest you do:

  1. Take an honest look at where you are
  2. Ask what small step you could take to move things along
  3. Do it.

Simply rinse and repeat on a weekly or monthly basis.

And if you’re looking for a simple callisthenics based system to help you get stronger…

…One that works progressively from easy exercises to harder exercises….

It’s a big mind-map!

Anyway, I’ve yapped on way longer than planned, so let me start wrapping this up by saying…

Whilst small steps might not be sexy…

They’re easy and most importantly they’re do-able.

But the best thing is they can lead to big changes.

P.S. The small steps principle doesn’t just apply to exercise…
