How many of you frequently go to the gym? How many days of the week do you train? How much time do you spend training per session? What are your goals? What are your weaknesses stopping you from reaching those goals? Why is this goal/goals important to you in the first place?
If you have never asked these questions and answered them honestly, this may just be what’s stopping you from reaching them. For some people it’s a particular muscular weakness or imbalance for most it’s the lack of habits or the lack of a solid plan. Not only do you need a plan, you need one that is specific for you. Everybody is different and should have a plan supporting that. Let me give you a few examples:
A travel nurse, dad and husband who simply wanted to lose weight to look better and feel better about himself and be around to enjoy his life and his family. His program consisted to strength training three times a week and interval training or cardio twice a week. He has since gone on with the knowledge he gained from managing his nutrition to how to navigate a gym effectively without taking a bunch of time away from other things he enjoys.
A Paramedic with a busy schedule and constantly varied shifts. She has had to make adjustments in her nutrition, sleep habits and workout times. With a focus on increasing strength in the Squat, Bench and Dead lift. She has also improved all of her lifts in preparation for her first power lifting meet. She has also had some bumps in the road and has gotten through them and come out stronger on the other side of it. If your doing this right, then that is going to and should happen.
Is a mom of two and pretty darn strong! She started Cross Fit a little more than two years ago and has had goals of being competitive locally and now globally in the CROSS FIT OPEN! Her programming includes a lot of skill development and aerobic/strength endurance. She also works on increasing her raw strength three days per week. 2017 is looking to be a good year for KC!
