Following Workout Routines That Have No Goal, No Plan, and No Purpose
I've been designing workout programs for people for a long time now. With my programs, you know exactly what to do, what your goal is every workout, and the purpose for each exercise and each workout. Each program has a purpose.
Just doing a simple Google search for weight lifting programs shows me that people are following weight lifting routines that have no purpose.
I see chest routines. Try this routine. Try this leg routine. Here's an ab workout. Blah, blah… blah, blah.
Here's the real truth about workout routines…
If you don't have a total body workout plan from start to finish for several months at a time, you aren't using a good program. And you definitely aren't getting optimal results. That's the truth.
A good program will have a plan for you to make progress. The amount of work you do will change over the course of the program. The number of reps you do should decrease over the weeks while the amount of weight you lift increases.
Number of sets may change. Exercises should stay the same for each type of workout. You may have several different workouts, but you need baseline workouts so you know that you're making progress. For example…
Many of my programs are designed with several different workouts — lets call them Workout A, B, C, and D just as an example. When Workout A comes around, you know what you did last workout and you know what you've got to do to beat the previous workout.
Your goal each workout is to beat the previous workout.
When you focus on making progress, your body transforms before your eyes. Your body has no reason to change if you do the same thing over and over and don't focus on getting better.
Drinking the WRONG Liquids All The Time
What do you drink each day? I think its seen as ‘normal' to go to the soda machine 2 to 3 times per day and buy a soda. Others stop at a gas station and buy an energy drink or fruit drink each morning.
Why? Why do we need to drink this stuff? It's horrible for our bodies and costs too much.
Start saving your money and start drinking water. Water is the absolute best thing you can drink and it's either much cheaper or completely free.
Let me give you a list of liquids you shouldn't be drinking…
|Energy Drinks||Fruit Juices|
|Powerade||5 Hour Energy|
|Diet Sodas||Any Type of Soda|
Surprised? Most people are. Simply drink water and even stay away from ‘diet' drinks that are filled with artificial sweeteners.
Fruit juices are filled with sugar and rob your body of nutrients. Energy drinks are horrible for you. If you MUST have some caffeine because you're a caffeine fiend… Drink green tea instead. Same goes for coffee. Have tea instead of coffee.
You should be drinking the vast majority of the time. If you cut out all the sodas, fruit juices, coffee, and diet drink, you'll save a ton of money. So save your money and start drinking water instead.
Letting Things Bother You That You Can't Control
There are a few different mistakes you've probably been making related to stress. I want you to know about these so you can correct them today…
There are some things in this world that we just can't control. Let me give you an example.
When I was going to Engineering School, I desperately was trying to keep a 4.0 Grade Point Average throughout school. I put a lot of undue stress on myself that I didn't need.
I would take a test and then worry about what I was going to get. Why? The test was over. I couldn't change the results. Yet, I still worried about it.
If you worry about things you can't control, STOP. Just stop. It adds a lot of stress that you don't need. The outcome will not change.
Stress will absolutely kill your results and cancel out all the hard work you've done in and out of the gym. Relax. You just can't change or control certain things. Stop worrying and start having some fun — forget about the things you can't change.
What about sleep?
Do you get plenty of sleep each night? Why not? Working too much or playing too much? You can get more sleep. You simply need a plan to get plenty of sleep.
If a TV or computer is taking away from your sleep time, GET RID of it. Just kidding… you don't have to get rid of it BUT you do need to get them out of your bedroom if they bother you.
There are tons of ways to improve your quality of sleep and the amount of sleep you're getting. You should really work on it. Your results will be SO MUCH better.
