Pull-up performance can be a predictor of multiple factors in sport and life. If you're looking to swim a faster 50-freestyle in the pool, improve your pull-up performance (Pérez-Olea, José I.; Valenzuela, Pedro L.; Aponte, Concepción; Izquierdo, Mikel, 2018). Want the ability to catch more waves while surfing? Improve your pull-up performance (Sheppard, Jeremy M.; McNamara, Phil; Osborne, Mark; Andrews, Mark; Oliveira Borges, Thiago; Walshe, Phil; Chapman, Dale W, 2012). If you are looking to minimize shoulder pain, improve your pull-up performance. The pull-up is oozing with value. You just have to tap into it.
The low-hanging fruit of nutrition is hydration. Over the years, I have watched countless clients overestimate how much water they drink and underestimate how much they need. This creates quite the gap!

When it comes to driving change in your body, short, daily routines can lead to a sizable impact compared to one long session on the weekend.
Your body likes to be exposed to a manageable stimulus often if it is to drive change. A massive stimulus (ex. long weekend session) is going to have a back-burner effect at best.
Think about your current state of health (or lack thereof). Did you arrive at your current state overnight? No. It was more of a gradual morph over time. This also means you're not going to get out of this state overnight. Change takes time and a daily approach to change will help drive long-term change.
