Have you ever thought about how consistency with training can affect the desired outcome of your fitness training?
Here’s another good tip that can make all the difference as to whether your training is successful or not.
When you have consistency with training, looking at all aspects of it,
from the time of day that you train, to the type of training that you do
on those days you’ll discover one of the hidden keys to being
successful with any training program.
The more often we do something, the more likely we are going to continue doing it, whether it is a good or a bad habit. That’s really how habits or formed, isn’t it? (That, of course, is the secret to success with hypnosis. Repeat, repeat, repeat.)
Making fitness a habit, one that you do on a regular basis, will help to ensure that you succeed without it being a struggle.
It is human nature to avoid pain - finding fitness training a chore is a pain that we all will seek to avoid. This will result in missed training days and eventually giving up on our fitness and training goals altogether.
1. A good first step is to start by getting a training program that targets, not only your desired physical outcome, but also your personality type. This one thing will make your training less painful to endure.
2. You will find it easier to train more often – until training becomes a habit - and eventually it can become a habit where we get to the stage that we actually feel like we are missing out on something good, if we don't get our fitness 'fix' for the week.
3. This new 'habit' delivers the results you want at the end of the day, faster than irregular training sessions, where we might put more effort in, but not return to the gym for a week or two.
4. Turning your fitness routine into a habit also allows you to do less and achieve more. This happens because we can make small improvements when we are training regularly and the combined results of these small improvements build up to bigger gains in the long term.
5. And, here's an important last point to always keep in mind: consistency also reduces the incidence of injury that can stop our progress as our muscles are attuned to the regular exercise that we will be giving them.
Making fitness and your good health a habit that you enjoy, will set you up for the long-term health benefits that only regular maintenance can bring.
