“Don’t mistake movement for achievement!” my college basketball coach used to yell at my team as we cut and moved around the court out of habit or ploys to look busy.
I had no idea what he was talking about until years later: Just because we were moving did not mean that we were applying the intensity that would create a result.
We can apply this warning from my old sage of a coach to the way that most people exercise today: Lots of movement. Limited results.
