Fitness Tip #10

Begin with the End in Mind

“Start with the end point of your specific goal in mind, and then work backwards to plan out your training program. That way, you'll know exactly what you need to do to reach your goal, keeping you motivated and moving forward. For example, if you want to be able to run a marathon in 16 weeks, then in eight weeks your training program should build up to doing a half marathon, and in four weeks you should be able to do a 10K.”

Fitness Tip #9

Remember that the Juice is Worth the Squeeze

“Back when I was boxing, my trainer put me in for 'hard' sparring against a pro fighter from Guyana. I landed a few shots, but he proceeded to knock me bloody and senseless for five rounds. The next day, I told my trainer I doubted about my ability as a fighter, and he told me I was too concerned with the destination -enjoy the journey. Then it hit me: He stuck me in the ring with this guy because he felt I could learn from it. I mean, how many people have been able to go five rounds with a former world champion? Always answer the bell and enjoy the hard fought journey—the juice is worth the squeeze.”

Have a great weekend!!!!

Fitness Tip #8

Listen to Your Body, Not Your Mind

“Your body knows better! On days when you don't feel like working out, that's your mind talking. Your body yearns for movement, circulation, and healing. When I'm having one of those days, I'll take a few moments just to breathe well, and invariably, my arms want to stretch and I might press my hands into a wall and lengthen my spine—anything. And it always feels better.”

Fitness Tip #7

Pump More Iron

“One of the best tips I can give to anyone who wants to change the shape of their body is to lift weights. Specifically, lift heavy weights and perform multi-joint exercises such as deadlifts, squats, and push presses. If your goal is to look toned and lose belly fat, combine 20 minutes of high-intensity cardio and 20 minutes of strength training for your workout—you’ll be finished in just 40 minutes and be in the best shape of your life.”

Fitness Tip #6

Put Parkinson's Law into Practice

“Parkinson's Law states that the perceived complexity of a task expands to fill the time you allot it. So if you don't set hard deadlines and time lines, you're not going to be as focused or productive as you could be. Instead of wasting time at the gym, create hard deadlines for your workouts: estimate how long your session should take and enforce that you finish in that amount of time or less. Create a negative consequence for not sticking to it. Once you begin to create and enforce deadlines, the BS gets toned down and the results increase dramatically.”
