Fitness Hacks to Transform Your Body
Fitness Hacks to Transform Your Body – Become A Photographer (Take Pictures) You don’t ever need to show these pictures to anyone else but it’s a great way to keep motivated and actually SEE the progress you’ve made overtime.
When you see yourself every day it’s tough to see the results and so it’s easy to get frustrated.
But being able to look at pictures over time is much clearer to you. It’s easy to keep a photographic record with today’s technology. Try snapping a few pics every 4 weeks or so and keep them in a photo album.
The S stands for specific. Be specific about the goals you want to achieve. Forget things like, “I want to get in shape,” “I want to get big,” or “I want to lose weight,” or “I want to increase my bench press.”
Instead try things like “I want to run a 6-minute mile,” “I want to add 10 pounds of muscle,” “I want to lose 20 pounds of fat, or “I want to add 40 pounds to my best bench press.”
The M stands for measurable. This ties in well with specific. You can’t measure ‘getting in shape,” but you sure can measure ‘running a 6-minute mile’ or ‘bench 3 plates.
In addition to specific and measurable, your goals must be A, or attainable. The R stands for realistic.
As I’ve said before, it’s important to set challenging goals. Challenging, but attainable, that is.
A goal of a 50-pound increase on your bench press max in 12 weeks would be a challenging goal, but also one that is possible.
However, setting a goal of bench pressing 300 pounds in 4 weeks when you currently bench press 75 pounds will do nothing but set you up for failure and frustration.
Same thing with weight loss. Don’t set a goal of losing 30 pounds in 30 days. You’ll only set yourself up for frustration. Challenging but realistic, remember? Make it tough but give yourself a chance. That way you’ll really battle for it but even if you fall short, you’ll still make great progress.
The T stands for Timely. If you do everything previously mentioned, it’s still not enough. You must give yourself a deadline to achieve your goal.
More importantly, if your goal is attainable and realistic, but also long term, break it up into smaller goals.
If you wish to lose 75 pounds, start by losing just 10 pounds in 2 months. Reaching that goal will motivate you further and before you know it, enough time has passed that you’ve lost the 75
But if you focus solely on losing 75 pounds, which could take a year or more to accomplish, your motivation and discipline could wane, and you could fail to follow through on what you need to do to make your goal a reality.
