Folks get involved in the fitness game for many reasons.
Some folks train purely for health reasons. Their main focus when it comes to working out and exercising is keeping their body in-shape in order to live a healthier life.
Some folks train purely for athletic performance reasons. Their main focus when it comes to training is about getting stronger, faster, and developing the skills needed to excel at their sport.
Some folks train purely for aesthetic reasons. Their main focus when it comes to training is to build a stand out physique that breaks necks and forces you to look.
I have found through my years of training clients that most people initially are a blend of health and aesthetics without giving much thought to training performance.
The fact of the matter is that great performance in the gym that will lead to better health and a great looking physique!
You cannot make progress using the same amount of weight for the same amount of reps every single week. If your training does not consistently challenge you then it will not change you or allow you to build your dream body.
I know and train folks who have an idea in their head as to what they want to look like. They have fully envisioned their dream body.
Anyone who you see with a phenomenal physique has been working on their dream body for years. There are 4 ways to build your dream body:
1) Lifting Weights
Lifting weights will allow you the ability to build muscle mass and sculpt your body the way you want it to look. You are the artist and the iron is your brush.
2) Eating Correctly
What is the point in having all that muscle mass if you cannot see how it actually looks? Eating a proper diet will allow you to become lean enough to actually see the muscles you have developed through lifting weights.
3) Performing Conditioning
Conditioning not only challenges your body and shreds body fat, but it also builds your mental toughness. Being strong in the mind not only gets you through brutal workouts, but it also gets you through life when times inevitably get tough.
4) Focusing on Progression
A stale workout creates a stale physique. Your workouts must consistently get more difficult in order for you to build your dream body.
Your dream body cannot be developed through a “get-fit-quick” type of program. Regardless of what cleverly designed advertisements will tell you, your dream body cannot be developed in 30, 60, or 90 days.
Building your dream body will require hard work and consistency.
Building your dream body will require focusing on progression and being accountable.
Building your dream body will also require time.
Building your dream body is similar to you starting a business or a new relationship. You will not be able to be at the pinnacle of the process in just a few short months because greatness requires time.
If you are not doing all you can to attain your goal, you cannot complain. If I am failing in my business, but I am not marketing or doing things necessary to build it then I have no one to blame but me.
Your dream body is at the top of the mountain and the way to get closer to it is to climb up that mountain every day. Whether you move forward an inch or a mile you are getting closer to the top.
I’ll holla at you next time.
