Do you want to get more out of your workout? Do you feel like you are spinning your wheels in your workouts? Challenge yourself by setting workout goals. Setting goals will help you achieve results. Here are 3 things to consider when making your workout goals:
A goal should be something you can physically do. Instead of a goal like "I want stronger abs," commit to doing something actionable - "I will do 10 reps of the abdominal series every day for the next 30 days."
Share your goals with your workout buddy, family members and friends. Invite them to join you in reaching your workout goal! Post your goals and progress on your social media. If you are accountable and have the support of friends and family, you are more likely to reach your goal.
Sometimes people set goals that are not possible to obtain. They then feel defeated when they are not able to reach those goals. For example, setting a goal of "I will run a half marathon in 2 months" but you have never trained as a runner, isn't realistic. Instead, set smaller goals that will ultimately get you to your bigger goal. "I will run a 5k in two months. I will complete a 10k by the end of the year. I will complete a half marathon by summer of next year."
Take your workout to the next level. Set goals. Work hard. Have fun. Stay positive. Achieve your goals. Get results.
