With the beginning of the new year, it’s all about new beginnings. Time to get fit, or my least favourite ”New Year, New You”. Nearly every magazine, tv or radio advertisement has something along these lines and most people get caught up in it all.
This is great that people want to change how they look and feel, but more than likely they’ll give up before they really start.
They’ll attempt to change all their bad habits, start running the roads or jumping on a treadmill 5 days a week.
This is never sustainable.
Once theses people hit one obstacle in their new lifestyle most up end back at stage one. Living an unhappy and unhealthy lifestyle.
If you are really serious about your training and changing your lifestyle, here is some tips on how i go about it.
So how do i go about my training?
- Its part of my liftstlye, 1 hour of the day. As early in the day as possible.
- I plan my training into my calendar for the week, not leaving obstacles get in the way of it.
- Don’t skip sessions, even if i have been working my ass off all day and all i want to do is go home.
- Train hard and smart, I listen to my body.
- Avoid exercises that play into any old injuries.
- Avoid chatting during my sessions.
- Follow my own program, not somthing that ive found minutes before online.
- I enjoy my training, and have a positive attitude towards it.
How do i support my training?
- Eating healthy nutritious food 90% of the time.
- Sleep 8-9 hours a night.
- Work on my mobility 3-4 times a week.
- Following my pre workout routine, packing gear bag, water, coffee, recovery shake, towel and wash gear.
- Following my recovery routine, protein shake, compression skins etc..
- I don’t make a big deal of it, I get it done and continue with the rest of my day.
- Always keep my goals in mind, but don’t let them be my every thought in my head
- Get a regular massage or physio session every 4-6 weeks to stay on top of any nigggles.
