Reps and sets only tell a small part of the story.

Building a strong body, not only for now but 15 years from now, takes so much more than x’s and o’s. It takes skills you can’t track. At least not day-to-day. Skills like:

Patience to delay gratification.

Resilience to come back after each setback.

Adaptability to do what you can with the resources you have.

Satisfaction to enjoy the process more than the end result.

Focus to ignore the noise and do things at a pace that’s right for you.

And the only way to improve these skills is to put in the reps and the sets.
