Pavel Tsatsouline is a scary Russian.
He is a proponent of the kettlebell and trains athletes and special forces in strength and conditioning.
Pavel is known for creating the phrase greasing the groove in his book Power to the People.
In the book, he talks about how important it is for the neurological groove to fire in a certain sequence and intensity. Grease the groove is not so much breaking down muscle tissue for more growth. It is about building up the neurological pathway of lifting heavy weight.
If you wanted to improve your pullups you would do 8 sets spanned across the day without ever going to complete failure where you couldn’t do another rep.
Your brain and body ‘learns’ to do the movement efficiently without breaking down muscle and needing long recovery times.
The result is incremental performance increases that can be sustained for long periods of time.
You get a little bit better every day.
Grease the groove has huge parallels in business.
Small, incremental actions performed regularly; gather momentum, create skills and build confidence.
One of the challenges I regularly give students when they join my programs is the 30 day challenge. Small daily actions that accelerate learning, results and sales.
Taking small but meaningful action every day adds up quickly.
Take meaningful action and book some time if you want proven systems to shape your business.
