More specifically – a training plan! Too many times I have set my sights on a goal and just waited for the stars to align to actually achieve it. I’ve now realised that you need to take action! Merely wanting something just isn’t enough!
If you’ve been following my Instagram (https://www.instagram.com/p/BONd6Auhw0A/?taken-by=sknappstar) you might be familiar with my recent aim to conquer strict muscle ups. I followed a 6 weeks program that was 30 minutes per week. I saw huge results in such a short time. I made more progress in 6 weeks than I did in the previous 2 years just by seeking that advice and making time for it.
There are free resources online that you can follow to achieve your goals so if you do your research you can find some really good ones. However, these plans are generic and are not tailored to you and your needs– it’s a great starting point don’t get me wrong. Having a generic program is far better than having no program at all! For the best results find a coach who can make a program for your specific goal and who can take you through the movements. It’s so valuable to have someone who can review what you are doing and make some corrections so you can get the most out of your program.
You may have noticed a lot of these simple steps fall outside of your training session. However, they are really easy to work into your everyday routine. The challenge and what I believe to be the secret to success, lies in being persistent. It’s the little things you do every day that can make the biggest difference overall and eventually help you to achieve your goals!
