Getting the Most of your Workout

How many of you start a workout but you are not seeing the results that you expected? Then you quit because the workout did not “work” for you. Are you actually working though? Pretty much every workout will make a difference if you do some of the following…

-Give your all. Don’t half ass it. Push yourself like there is no possible way that you could do even a second more. Some days, your all may be different then others, but give all you possibly can that day!

-If you need to rest 5 seconds then hop back in. Keep doing this.

-A move gets easy, modify it make it harder. and vise versa, too hard make it easier. You should always be challenging yourself though. The second I think that wasn’t hard I do something different.

-Leave your bull shit at the door, nothing matters during the workout, but the current move you are on!

-Find your grove, find a workout you will stick to!

-Force the habit, do it anyway. Don’t skip. If you need t0 move a rest day do that, but follow the plan. Starting out you do not have to do 6 or 7 days a week. But for at least 4 do something and don’t miss them.

-Never miss a Monday! This is the start for the whole week! Start it off right.

-Do it even when you don’t want to!

-Find a really Strong Reason Why you started.

-Nutrition… If you are eating like shit not much will change.Unknown-1

-Learn to eat healthy and in moderation. Meaning you will allow treats once or twice a week. Eat according to your goals. I am a huge believer of never feeling deprived, but this does take some sacrifice. Your diet should consist of Whole grains, lean protein, fruit, veggies, and healthy fats.

-Low fat or fat free do not mean healthy. In fact cut all these foods out of your diet!

-Alcohol… Touchy subject for some. But you cannot binge drink and lose weight. I still drink I do, I love beer and wine, I just don’t do it often. I mean a glass of wine or 2 on the weekend go for it. But when you are getting in to partying hard all the time, there is a problem. I like to let loose, but I don’t do that all the time. Limit the hard partying to once a week or less!

-If you fall off the wagon, which it happens to all of us! Don’t throw your arms up in surrender and quit. Admit defeat and jump back on. There is no shame.

-The compare game…STOP IT! No one is like you and you are not like them, your story is different so stop comparing.

-Set realistic goals and share them with someone who will SUPPORT you! There are haters everywhere and this shit is hard, so if they are talking you down. Stop telling them your plans. You can do this and you will.

-Find people that believe in you! UH HUM… ME! This is why I became a coach, to help others believe their potential.
