The end to another great week, I hope you all have made some great gains and progress this week.
The recipe to success…my top tips to help you get the best results.
After last week’s newsletter/blog post, I thought it would be a good idea to follow on from the goal setting with some tips that will help you all achieve great results.
1. Establish meaningful goals.
“Without inspiration the best powers of the mind remain dormant. There is a fuel in us which needs to be ignited with sparks.” Von Herder, J.
Following on from last week’s newsletter/blog post, it is vital to set goals that are meaningful to you.
If you are not connected to the outcome, you will never make and adhere to the lifestyle changes needed achieve what you want.
2. Train at least 4 times per week consistently
Training hard at least 4 times per week, will give you a 50% greater chance of hitting your goals over training just 3 times per week.
3. Be prepared to make changes to your lifestyle
If your lifestyle was on track, you would already have the results you want. Even if you train hard for 4 hours a week, that is still less than 3% of your total time per week focused on your results.
What are you doing for the other 97%? Make that time count.
4. You get out what you put in.
If you consistently do the right things, you will get the right result.
If you make excuses and do all the wrong things, you will get a bad result.
5. What gets measured, gets done.
Measure your progress – if you want to lose fat get your body-fat tested every week, if you want to gain muscle get your body-fat tested in way that allows you to distinguish between lean muscle gain and fat levels.
The 12 point body-fat system of BioSignature allows for both.
If you measure you progress you can assess what is working, what is not and where you need to improve.
6. Plan for success, don’t just hope it will happen by chance.
Blindly following an ambiguous plan to get leaner/lose weight/healthier will result in ambiguous results.
You must set-out a clear plan to get to a specific destination. Think of it as a road map to the body you want.
7. Shooting yourself in the foot is shooting YOURSELF in the foot.
If you work with a coach/trainer and you don’t follow their advice, you are just hurting your results.
Your body, your responsibility. You only get one, why not give it your best shot to make the most of it.
8. Use the formula for the greatest results.
Smart plan + hard work + consistency = results.
*smart plan = (effective training + a clean diet + the right supplements)
Time spent doing the wrong things + inconsistency = disappointment.
9. Use the power of hormones.
Use intense training and interval cardio sessions to promote the correct hormones to melt away the fat.
Eat the right foods to reduce stress and toxicity in your body. The less stressed, toxic and better nourished your body is, the better your results will be.
10. Prioritise your health
Your health is the foundation upon which the quality of your life is built.
Don’t believe me?
What happens when you catch a dose of the seasonal cold/flu bug going around?
Does your ability to enjoy life diminish? Does your effectiveness at work suffer?
Imagine what would happen if you developed a serious, long-term health issue.
Look after your health or it will divorce you.
On the flip side, if you make the time for regular exercise and to nourish your body, all aspects of your life will improve.
11. Don’t be the richest man/woman in the graveyard
Following on from the last point, don’t prioritise money over your health.
Work and earning money is important, but your health is even more important.
How much work will you do and how will your family be supported if you lose your health?
12. Enjoy the ride
Yes you need to work hard and stay focused for the greatest results, but that does not mean you cannot enjoy the journey.
Learn to enjoy the challenge and relish the feeling of accomplishment you get from success.
Well those are my top tips.
By far the most important is be inspired by setting goals that are important to you.
Once you light that fire you can feed it to help you achieve great things.
