“Getting Back On Point”

The 8 week Transformation Challenge

Message two

A major component relating to the  probability of your success, is your level of desire. How much are you willing to do, go through, or put up with, before you quit.

After years of promoting events, & coaching many athletes such as bodybuilders I have witnessed a common trait among those who succeed and make it to a competition stage and those who quit before the competition. Desire

One’s level of desire is a major factor.  In my estimation from personal experiences as a coach and event promoter, I would say that half of the people that intend to compete drop out long before the contest.

The thing that I have noticed when coaching is the way in which the successful people describe their goal during my assessment evaluation. I can almost predict who will quit and who will make it to the stage months before we get there.

These “Champions” have a very clear picture of their goals and strong emotional connections to them.

You may not be intending to compete in a contest.  You still can learn how to motivate yourself to achieve your fitness goals by developing a strong inner desire like successfull bodybuilders and fitness competitors.

Goals

What is your goal? Take a moment to think about your fitness goals. Write them down and review them daily. What do you want to look like? How do you want to feel? What do you want to be able to do? What are the timelines of your goals ? What are your daily, weekly, monthly, yearly, 5 yr & lifetime fitness goals? How do you intend to live the rest of your life?

Brainstorm your goals and write them down.

Thinking about how achieving your fitness goals will positively impact other areas, experiences and people in your life will help you create the leverage you will need to create the desire, dedication and determination you will need.

Additionally thinking about the negative impact on your life if you do not improve your fitness level. How will this negatively affect the life of yourself and those around you?

Creating leverage

“understanding, your why”

The pursuit and achievement of your goals will have a positive effect on a many areas of your life. Think about and write down how the rest of your life will be positively impacted by the pursuit and achievement of your fitness goals.

A few brainstorming ideas below to get you thinking about various areas of your life. It’s your job to think about and visualize how your fitness level will impact your life…..

Health, longevity, life span, energy, strength, endurance, flexibility, vitality, family, friends, self esteem, confidence, feeling of significance, pride, work life, education, school, mental health, spiritual health, finances, energy, self esteem, relationships, romantic relationship, ability to help others, enjoy life, enhanced life experiences, ability to act, relationship with nature, physical activities, outdoor activities, play, live with passion, spiritual, physical, social, family, financial, vocational, career, business, mental, learning, personal development.

Associating a variety of deep feelings, mental images and stories, to the pursuit of your fitness goals will create great power to draw upon for motivation in your moments of weakness.

When you don’t feel like working out, doing cardio or eating the food you should eat. Think about these associations you have made to create the you the motivation to do the right thing.  

Brainstorm your goals and write them down, and create strong mental images. Dream big, dream often.

Now…… Do it……

Take care,

The 8-week Transformation Challenge

Day One. message one.

Here we are. Day one. No more messing around.

Basic Starting components

Now that you have decided to take your fitness to the next level there are a few things to consider and take care of.

Assessment

As soon as possible I suggest you take some before pics and do some measurements. This will help monitor your progress.  I suggest at least some basics such as:

  1. Pictures
  2. Weight
  3. Tape measurements
  4. Skinfold measurements with a bodyfat caliper

I have had my daughters take my pics and help with my measurements. I will share these at a later date after I have made some progress but I can honestly say I think I am in the worst shape of my life. Maybe you’re in the same place. I am excited for this because if there’s one thing I know it’s how to change a physique.

Meal Prep

You also need to figure out a system for prepping your food. To be successful you need to set yourself up for success by having your meals ready. The people that succeed find a system that works for them asap. In the past, I have used and seen many systems for preparing and packaging food.  Everyone has some sort of family, work or life issues that bring up challenges. Whatever you need to do to be sure you have meals ready as well as some sort of back up.  Here are a few variables that people have used to adapt to their lifestyles.

  • Individual meals packed Tupperware or baggies
  • Prepped meals one day out up to one week out
  • Pre made protein shakes in the fridge
  • Food prepped and stored in large Tupperware in the fridge and each day the meals are made from the large batch and placed into daily meals.
  • Meals prepped placed in the freezer and then one day out placed in the fridge to defrost one day before. This seems to work well for the people that prep 5 or more days worth of food.

I am setting out to prep for about 3 days of food at once. My daughters and I are doing it together so we are having fun with the planning and preparing of meals.

Weight Train

You need to set out to train your entire body once a week with weights. We will add details to this but for now. Figure out how many days a week you can commit to working out and then break the body up so you train the entire body once a week.

I am going to be training in the garage with my daughters and we are doing the following schedule.

Cardio

You also need to do cardio at least 3 days a week. Strive to do it every day if possible. Try alternating one-day low heart rate the next day high heart rate. 80%(220 minus age times .80)  of max on high days. 60% of max ( 220 minus age times .60)  on low days. Start with 20 min a day.   

We intend to do cardio every day.

So that I can successfully, inspire, motivate, educate and hold you accounted I have a variety of thing I  want you to connect with. So you get messages, emails, social media reminders.
