4 Home Workout Routine Tips To Help You Stay On Track
In this article we will look at 4 ways that you can make sure that you stay on track in your workout routine. These tips can be applied to any workout, whether you goal is to lose fat or to do bodybuilding without weights.
Consistency is key to a succesful longterm training regime. In our hectic lives we struggle to fit in our workouts in each week. When one day is skipped there is often a knock on effect resulting in more workout sessions to be skipped as well. As a result it is hard to get back on track.
To overcome this problem it is advised to pick 3 days per week for your workout days. And allocate a set time on each of these days to complete the workout. Stick to this system like your life depends on it. Getting into a weekly routine will make it second nature and you will find it easier to maintain.
Excercising can be boring especially when improvements to your body may take several weeks or months to really become visible. To make sure you keep on track you can try treating yourself every now and then as a reward.For example, set yourself a target of completing 3 workouts a week for one-month without fail. If you succeed in this, reward yourself with an exciting meal out and a big cheat day of eating anything you like. You will find that having something to look forward to will really help you in the long run.
3. Find a workout buddy
When you train by yourself it is all to easy to make up excuses for that making gains and just to slack off. But if you have a gym buddy, you can encourage each other and make sure that you both stay on track. There is an element of accountability when you workout with someone so it is not all down to you. You are likely to find a sense of responsibility to complete your workouts when someone else is monitoring your progress.
4. Track your progress
Sometimes we can get lost in the long term goals and only focus on the end result. The end result always seems to hard to complete and after only making slight improvements after a few weeks many people don’t believe they will accomplish their goals and they just quit.
Dont be a quitter. Instead set yourself small milestones on a weekly and monthly basis. Instead of focussing on your goal of gaining 20 pounds of muscle. Focus on gaining 1 pound in the next 2 weeks. Tick off each milestone to prove to yourself that you are on track and this will keep you motivated. Also, take regular photos of your progress as if you look at yourself in the mirror on the daily basis you are not going to be aware of your improvements. But having photos to compare over a monthly period really helps to highlight the improvements that you have made.
If you apply the 4 points above to your workout routine, I am sure you will find it easier to stay on track. Just make sure you take action, implement the tips, and take responsiblity for your actions and results.
