What a Christmas
I had a belter, along with Oliver and Claire
How was your’s?
(a little less training, a lot more calories?)
Ah yes, and let me guess, you’ve got training goals for the year?
(You and me both, I want to build for a big event in 2017)
In fact as we speak the roads of Solihull and Birmingham are filled with wonky, sweaty runners
But the reality is the vast majority of people wanting these results will fail, BIG TIME
We’ve all been there right?
So what’s the deal with ensuring you beat the odds and succeed in achieving the body you want?
Smashing your training and nailing your nutrition…
Over the years in professional sport I used a certain approach to goal setting…
Which is easy, EVIDENCE BASED and you can use:
Firstly, where do you want to be 90 days from now?
That fits in with your longer term goal…
And don’t just say ‘fitter’, or ‘leaner’, be SPECIFIC
Why 90 days?
This is a realistic period shown to be long enough to evoke significant, genuine improvements in your body
Yet not so excessive it seems ages away
Most gyms and trainers are talking ’21 days’
(get abs like Peter Andre circa 1996 in a month, drop a hundred dress sizes in less than a month!)
Yes you can get results in this period, but they’re not the big ones
Secondly, don’t be zero to hero and go at it like a psycho
Would you go from lifting no weights, to then attempting 100kg squat?
From running no miles, to a marathon?
No way Jose!
Thirdly, knowing this target, what steps and processes will lead you there ASAP?
What type of training, how frequently, what nutrition etc
Outcomes only become reality when the processes are EXECUTED
So your focus should appreciate your goal…
(e.g. to be fitter than you ever have)
But concentrate on the steps
(strength training, supramaximal interval training, mobility work…)
This has worked immensely in both the pro athletes I’ve trained and regular people we currently coach
Train smart not dumb 😉
