I'm going to show you how to prevent your life from getting in the way of your workout plans.
One of the BIGGEST reasons that prevents you from building muscle and burning fat is inconsistency.
Skipping workouts prevents you from making progress in the gym.
And the lack of progress in the gym means no changes in your appearance, your health, or your body.
In other words, you are wasting your time in the gym unless you workout consistently. So let me show you how to prevent other planned and unplanned events from messing up your weight lifting plans.
Nothing Will Get in The Way of Your Workout Plans Ever Again…
I know how life can get in the way of your workout plans sometimes.
No matter what, though, you MUST be consistent with your workouts to get the results you want.
You don't want to waste your time working out because you just couldn't string together a few months of consistent workouts.
So I'm going to give you my tips, tricks, and secrets for staying consistent with your weight lifting program. With the help on this page, you will be able to stay consistent and get results once and for all.
Do Unplanned Events Keep Coming Up Throughout the Day That Cause You to Miss Workouts?
The easiest way to stop unplanned events from affecting your workout plans is to workout early in the morning.
Get up an hour and a half earlier than normal, have some nutritious tea, get to the gym, and get that workout in the books.
Morning workouts, without a doubt, are the best time to workout — because nothing will get in your way. Most people are still sleeping, kids are sleeping, no classes are taking place, no meeting are taking place, etc.
Usually, these unplanned events that are getting in your way come up as the day goes on…
Your boss tells you there is a meeting planned later in the afternoon that will cause you to work overtime.
Your kids tell you they need help with a project or need to be somewhere this afternoon.
Even planned events cannot get in your way with morning workouts.
What if You Can't Workout in the Morning for Some Unknown Reason?
Before you say you can't workout in the morning… are you sure you have a good reason?
You can always change your schedule around to get up earlier and go to bed earlier.
But let's say you can't workout in the morning… Here's what you do:
You have to have a weight lifting schedule that's adaptable. You will only be working out 3 to 4 days per week with weights. You need a weight training schedule that allows you to easily move workout days and not mess up your workout plans.
Got a Job That Makes You Travel Unexpectedly?
It really depends on where you're going on travel and what you'll be doing but you can always find a way to workout with weights — most of the time anyway.
And you can always wake up earlier than normal to get a workout in while you are traveling.
I realize how tough it can be to eat right and stick to your workout plans while on travel. All it takes, though, is a little extra effort.
Take a trip to the grocery store and get your normal foods while on travel. It just takes a little extra effort than normal.
Book a hotel with a full kitchen or at least a refrigerator.
Find a local gym before you take your trip and see if you can get a visitor pass for the duration of your stay there. If you're a member of a certain gym, you may be able to find that gym chain in the city you are traveling.
It's tough to find a good gym in a hotel so don't rely on the hotel gym. 99.9% of them are horrible.
Just plan ahead, and you'll be just fine. Make sure you have maps, and you know where you're going.
A Home Gym Can Help In So Many Ways…
I workout in my home gym now. It's so much easier. It saves a ton of time and money… and that's something you just can't beat.
It also helps me workout consistently — I have no excuse for not working out now. I can't say, “I don't feel like driving to the gym” or “I don't have the money to renew my gym membership.”
All I have to do to go to the gym is walk downstairs to my basement and I'm there. It can't get any easier than that.
A home gym will cost you more up front, but will save you tens of thousands of dollars in the long run. Saves you gas money, saves you precious time, and helps you stay consistent to your workout plans.
If you have the option of building a home gym, I HIGHLY recommend one. The advantages are endless. You will absolutely LOVE your home gym.
It's Always Good to Have Backup Workout Plans
Body weight workouts that you can do anywhere with just your body weight can be priceless.
No matter where you are… or what you're doing… You can workout with only your body weight.
So if you just can't get to a well equipped gym, you can stray from your normal weight training program and go with a body weight workout.
Your body weight workout plans will be there as a backup just in case you ever need them.
You should always have a backup workout plan.
This will help you stay on track.
Tired? Just Don't Have the Motivation? Let's Turn This Around!
If you've been working out consistently for a while (8 to 12 weeks), sleeping well, eating healthy foods, and drinking plenty of water… you might just need a break from weight lifting and most physical activities for about a week.
If you haven't been working out consistently and are still tired and have no motivation, then you need to make some major changes in your life.
You need to correct your diet and improve the food choices you make first. Then, you need to change your schedule so you have time to workout and get plenty of quality sleep.
You also need time in your schedule for fun which should include OUTSIDE activities. If you're constantly on the computer or playing video games, you've got to give some or even all of that up.
Once you correct all the mistakes you've been making, the stress in your life will go down and you can start working out consistently and getting the results you NEED.
