Share Your Goals with Others

“Talking about and sharing your goals with other people is a great way to hold yourself accountable for taking action. It will give you a greater purpose, as you’ll find that you want to follow-through on what you've told people, and it will help you create a support network. You may even find that other people have helpful suggestions based on their own experiences, expertise, or personal and professional networks.”

    I have been joining challenges on FB and it's a great way to meet like minded people who are working on the same programs.

“I like to remind my clients that support begins at the bottom, meaning be conscious of what your feet are doing. Most people get caught up in the movement of the exercise and forget about the importance of proper foot placement. Understanding that our feet are the foundation for all of the body parts above will help to create overall balance and proper spinal alignment, making each exercise that much more effective.”

Fitness Tip #14

Use Your T-Shirt to Check Your Training

“The seams of your shirt can be a good indicator of strength imbalances between your chest and biceps (anterior) and your back (posterior). Next time you’re wearing a t-shirt, stand in front of a mirror to see if the stitching from the neck to the shoulder forms a straight line (this a good indicator that you're incorporating proper posterior work). If the lines turn slightly inward from the neck to the shoulders (anterior tilt), you may want to focus more attention on developing your posture and back.”

Fitness Tip #13

Aim High but Stay Realistic

“One thing my Olympic track coach used to say to me whenever I would hit a plateau was, ‘Rome was not built in a day.’ I find that even the most competitive and knowledgeable athletes set expectations that are often too high, and it’s natural to get disappointed when you set an expectation and fail. It’s good to have goals, just make sure those goals are smart, achievable ones.”

    Absolutely! Thanks, I needed to be reminded of this. At times, I expect to see changes to my weight and body way too soon and I get discouraged. The thing I need to remember is consistency will get me there and the changes I want to see are not gonna happen in one day or one workout! emoticon

Fitness Tip #12

Work More Muscles in Less Time

“When it comes to exercise selection, focus on compound moves, not isolation exercises. A compound movement is something that engages every muscle in your body -such as pull-ups, pushups, or planks- whereas isolation exercises focus only on one muscle group. Compound movements will make you stronger, more explosive, and more toned than anything else.”
