Often in the fitness center I see guys and girls who come to work out without having any plan. Training to them, especially to girls, is reduced to cardio machines, usually the treadmill or workouts downloaded from YouTube, while not knowing why they’re doing what they’re doing. The epilogue is, of course, loss of motivation and quickly giving up.
When you start to deal with your appearance and health, and when you decide to go to training and do your best, keep always in mind that your potential is infinite and that there is no single reason why you could not look like a top fitness model. Anyone can do it! The first step you need to do is to clearly define your goal, whether it be removing excessive amounts of weight, increase muscle mass, definition or better stamina, then create a specific training plan, which will be tailored to your current situation and what you have mapped as a target and, perhaps most importantly, to persevere your motivation and your faith.
Define the objective
The clear objective in training, as in life, is half the work. If you do not have a clear vision and you are not objective, you will lose a lot of time in unproductive work. Also, if you set yourself very high demands, you can be in a position to lose motivation. Always keep in mind that a project like this takes time and it’s much more stimulating for you to start with small steps. Define easier goals that take 4-8 weeks to achieve.
For example, you can specify a target to that look more defined for the summer. This means that you have to make a detailed plan for training and nutrition, which will primarily involve variations of carbohydrate and increased protein intake, through diet and supplementation.
A goal without a plan – wishful thinking
So, sit down and make a “business plan” for the construction of the perfect form. If you do not have enough knowledge to do it yourself, ask someone who knows. Do not train ad hoc, because you will quickly lose the will, it will become boring and you will never achieve the results you want. No need to hire a personal trainer – make a proper training and nutrition plan according to your current status, opportunities and desires. And then get to work! Like when you hire an architect to do the project. You be the contractor. If you plan properly and stick to the plan, the results are guaranteed.
Be consistent in your intention
When you see that your wardrobe is much better off, you’re full of energy and enthusiasm and your environment observed changes in you, you will be motivated to continue. Every drop of sweat, effort, diet, self-sacrifice, in the end is worth it and you become rewarded. And you know what? Very soon it ceases to be torture – becomes a pleasure and a challenge. Do not skip workouts, or look for excuses why something cannot be done, but try to find a way to accomplish what you set yourself as a priority. Even if sometimes you are not able to do what’s scheduled for that day, do as much as you can, it will be better than if you did not do anything. This will strengthen the will and consistency, and that will be reflected in other aspects of life. Persistence is self-discipline and a true measure of your faith in yourself. Decide in advance that you will never surrender!
