Hey there, welcome back! If you haven’t already read the intro to this fitness series, check it out here. Yes, we could just jump right into info on workout routines, and nutrition tips, but I think it is important to identify your goals beforehand, because your goals should match the method you take to get there.
If you were prepping for a bodybuilding competition your method would be different than if you were trying to just lose a couple pounds, or if you are trying to increase muscle definition, or if you just wanted to increase over health. Does that make sense?
Anyone can daydream about reaching their goals, but I have found that without a plan, it is easy to let those goals fall to the wayside. Be realistic with yourself, and embrace whatever limitations you think could provide some set backs. Instead, try to find how it can work to your advantage. Everything is good when life is easy, but how are you going to bounce back when you have a bad day, when you miss the gym for a week, when you regret that extra piece of cake? Thats what matters.
Answer these questions, reflect on them, and get ready for the next post detailing different workout routines to match your schedule and your lifestyle!
