What result would you like to achieve?
Why are you going to train? To look better, be healthier or compete in a specific sport. Whatever you chose don't let anything distract you.
You will succeed when you dont let any distractions pull you away from your goal. For example, to burn the most fat you need to consume about 2000 calories but to perform well in a sport may require 3000 calories. Each goal requires different approaches.
The right training program
Choose a program that fits you best. It must suit your goal and fit into your schedule. A simpler program that you stick to is better than a complicated one that you quit. To lose fat focus on shorter rest periods between exercises and perform more cardio. Sprinting is one of the best exercises to burn fat.
Learn Proper eating habits.
You can do hours of exercise and still not see any progress. The solution is to learn about the foods you eat and why they make you look the way you do. A person who eats the right foods will see results fast. When choosing your foods look for healthy alternatives. Also remember not all carbohydrates are bad. The processed ones that contain too much sugar and harmful fats are the ones you should avoid.
Work smart and have a target.
Dont look for a perfect training program. It doesnt exist. For the best results focus on what you have in front of you. Don't go from one training program to the next until you have completed it. Have a plan and follow through and watch out for distractions. Give it your best and you will see results.
When one plus one equals four.
Have you heard that 100% perfect decisions result in 100% perfect results but 99% perfect decisions result in 70% results. That's the effect of compounding. Each good choice you make has a multiplication effect on the results of your next choice. A bad choice will result not only in bad results now but a knock on effect of your future choices and results. Don't become fanatical but focus and chose wisely.
