The Lifestyle Traffic Light System
This is something covered in my book ‘I’ll start next Monday’
Link at bottom if you’d like to get it 🙂
The traffic light system is a system used to help achieve results at a consistent pace. Many people switch between Red and Green but to be completely honest Amber is where the magic happens.
Like mentioned above the sweet spot is in the amber zone, this I what is most maintainable throughout a year, if you are going from red to green constantly this is the stop/start mentality whereas in amber you can keep it constant throughout.
Starting and stopping may make sense in the short term..but it’s tough, drains willpower and makes zero sense longer term from a health perspective.
You may go to green or red a few weeks within a year, but you would always fall back to the amber zone after this time to carry on moving forward.
When Olympic athletes are training for an event they would start in the amber zone, they are putting systems in place to nail down their routine, as the race or event gets closer and closer this is where they would move more towards the green zone to really dial down on that event, after the event they would most likely go to the red zone for a few weeks until they have that next event in place and continue the cycle.
If you would like to read more about it ^^
Or learn more concepts like this I like to follow personally and for all gym members
