How to Effectively (& Appropriately) Gauge Progress | PD Podcast Ep.78
We have found that the scale can sometimes do more harm than good, so we have clients that don't weigh themselves. The scale is just ONE tool to gauge progress. Today, we chat about additional ways to measure your progress effectively and their importance in your ability to continue making progress over time.
As always, it is our goal not only to supply you, the listener, with valuable insights on the topics or questions but also to plant some seeds for further research and thought. Without further ado, let's get into today's episode.
(0:50) Some tools (outside of the scale) we can use to analyze progress
(2:18) Pitfalls of relying on the scale as your primary metric
(9:53) Sleep quality and quantity and their effects on your goals
(21:08) Tracking progress (what gets measured gets managed)
(27:11) Gauging energy and endurance
(28:26) The importance of keeping a training log
(38:09) Assessing digestion and heart rate
(40:34) Adjusting your workload to account for stress
(48:12) Recognizing your progress and victories
(55:42) Final thoughts & wrap-up
