Incorporate these habits into your routine and see how your results at the gym increase
Success in gymnasium? What is it?
Well, we can define gym success by achieving the goals that lead you to train.
If your goal is to win muscle mass and losing fat, when you achieve that, is a success.
If you are watching SportTV on the giant projector while you are in conversation, when you achieve that, it is also a success.
In this case, we will focus on the first group, the one that seeks results.
Here are the seven habits to make progress in the gym, whatever your goal.
1 # Consistency (Daily)
This is the most important habit, and it applies to everyone else, making them work.
It is through consistency that you can achieve results or not.
If you're consistent with going to the gym, eating and resting, you'll get good results.
If you are consistent in missing out on training, ignoring your meal plan and your important hours of rest, you will also get results, but perhaps they are not the ones you are looking for.
“We are what we do repeatedly. Excellence, then, is not an act, but a habit. ”
Aristotle already knew this in the 300 BC years, and surely if he joined a gym today, he would have better results than most with his philosophy.
2 # Training (Quality)
Whatever your goal in the gym, you need to train.
You need a good training plan, designed according to your goals, lifestyle and physiology.
Besides, it is not enough to have a good training plan.
A good poorly executed training plan will not take you much.
An average but well executed training plan will give results.
You need to work hard at the gym and make progress.
Making a series and spending 5 minutes on the conversation, followed by one more series and 5 minutes on Facebook, won't give you the intensity you need.
Take training seriously to get results seriously.
3 # Food (Effective)
If you don't pay attention to food, and eat what comes up, you're unlikely to succeed in the gym.
Also, it is important not only to have a good diet, but your diet.
What does this mean?
Following your training partner's diet won't do you much good if it doesn't fit your goals or your individual fitness needs.
In addition, you should use foods that please you minimally to be consistent.
4 # Rest (It's Key)
The rest is to sleep at least 6 hours every day, and ideally 8 hours. But not only.
It is also important to have rest days, when you do not go to the gym, and fully recover.
Muscles grow during rest, but it's not just muscles that benefit from rest.
The central nervous system also needs rest, and recovery, and if you are mentally exhausted, you will not have great physical performance.
Not to mention the negative hormonal impact, And not only, which the lack of rest brings.
5 # Goal (concrete)
You need at least one goal to go to the gym.
If you have no goal, what are you going to do there?
Whether it is improving your appearance, your health, gaining strength or competing.
Any goal is valid as long as it matters to you, and that is what will make you train week after week, month after month.
The more accurate you are in your goal, the better.
What is your goal?
6 # Dedication (Actual)
A bit like consistency, but not quite.
While consistency is not missing workouts or meals, the dedication is for example to make the most of each workout.
It is prioritizing training over other less important activities, which will lead you to make decisions about your goal in the gym.
It means doing what matters first, and then leaving it the least important.
It's having ready-to-eat meals, waking up early to train because it's the only time you can go, or going to bed at 23h instead of getting up early on Facebook when you have to wake up at 07.00.
If transforming your body is your second or third priority (probably the first is work), you should treat it as such.
It's the small details, which accumulated, make a big difference.
7 # People (Right)
It's important to be surrounded by the right people.
People you can learn from, people who have already taken the path you are taking, people with the same goal (and dedication) as you.
People who can help you and know more than you.
To evolve in any area, you need to learn, so surround yourself with people who can teach you.
Look around you at the gym, from the PT's there, to the people who train there with good results, to friends you know who understand the subject.
Ask questions and ask for advice, annoy them to help you in a certain exercise.
This will significantly speed up your progress in the gym and is probably one of the most overlooked methods.
In addition to people you can learn from, a training partner with the same goal and ambition as you, even if you don't have much experience, is an excellent ally.
These are not revolutionary, secret or impressive habits, but they are effective habits, and few people put them all into practice.
These are habits that work.
Can you make progress without being surrounded by the right people? Yes.
Just as you can progress to sleeping only five hours a night, or failing two workouts a week.
The difference is that it will be slower progress than you could make.
If you want to make the best and fastest progress possible in the gym, follow the seven habits on this list, and you're on your way to achieving your goal, whatever it is.
