The Perfect Workout?

by James Kerrison on March 1, 2009

applesWe are always looking for perfection.

The perfect car. The perfect partner. The perfect job. The perfect

A lot of people will spend all their time searching instead of taking action.

The same goes for any fat burning workout, weight loss workout or trying to lose belly fat.

There are lots of great workouts around, but none of them will do a thing if all you do is read and analyse them.

You have to take action. Put something into action. Anything.

A crappy program performed 3 times a week will give you better results than the perfect program done zero times a week.

Just as you have goals with your body, you should have some matching goal with your training. A consistent effort will give you consistent results. Going hard with your training and diet for 3 weeks just to let it go for 3 weeks will have you in a spin cycle of mediocrity.

Aim for at least two solid sessions per week. If you aren’t getting the two sessions consistently there is no point having a 5 day program. If you are getting the two sessions a week, aim for 3-4. If you can do this for 4 weeks then you know you are developing a solid habit. Now you can have a closer look at what you are doing in the gym and make improvements there.

After a month or so it will be time to change up what you are doing for your workouts. There are a number of reasons for this. Probably the biggest reason, yet also the most overlooked, is the boredom factor. If you are getting bored and lazy with any program your results, or lack of, will be evident.

The other reasons include:

  • Change of goal
  • Injury
  • Change of circumstances (work times/availability to gym etc)
  • Reached a plateau

Any of these reasons are acceptable. You really want to be avoiding stagnation so that you can get the most out of every single workout.

Follow this formula (application, consistency, change) and you will be well on your way to getting that flat stomach or whatever your goal may be.

Now get out there and do it.
