Let’s go from 60% to 100% Feeling Good!
You’ve got one life and right now, it’s changing by the day.
The routine you’re used to – gone!
The social interactions you looked forward to are now via devices online and, to be honest, we should be grateful that we have this technology so we have different ways to see others during this scary moment in time.
The simple things, like trips to the shop, have turned into drawn out processes (for good reason of course)!
Although it seems everything has been flipped on its head…
… you can STILL be proactive and come out of the other side of this in better shape.
Not just physically but (more importantly) mentally.
You see, everything you want to achieve in life requires you being physically and mentally able to make it happen on some level.
Now that doesn’t mean you have to have the body of a god or goddess but the more you take care of what you have got, the more productive and successful you can be on a daily basis
Think about it this way…
If you make yourself ill, through overworking, stress and anxiety, to the point of utter exhaustion, you are going be set back further.
Let me explain in a gym based analogy…
For example, I want to bench press 100kg (not me personally) but currently can only bench 60kg.
Maybe it would be a good idea to increase the weight on the bar by 10kg every session and get as many reps out as I can each time.
I quickly get up to 100kg and grind out a couple of poor form reps.
Feel good for lifting 100kg but don’t get much further.
I can’t progress any further than a few ugly reps at 100kg because I’ve gone too hard too soon.
Likely to pick up injury from poor form and feel terrible both physically and mentally.
I realise that it could take 8 to 12 weeks to build up safely to 100kg.
I structure working sets at a % of my ‘max’ and gradually build up each session, as well as planning sufficient rest days.
I don’t even realise the progress I’m making until 10 reps at 100kg feel easier than they should.
I’ve had no lay off from injury and not just lifted the weight but smashed the goal out of the park.
OK so let’s bring it back to today and the relevance it has to health.
Look at an 8 -12 week plan. Don’t take your mind off your health and fitness, otherwise you’ll end up taking that mind-set into EVERYTHING you do. Stay fit and well and it will help you achieve everyday tasks.
With that in mind I wanted to share some simple strategies to help you start taking better care of your body today, so you can be healthier, happier and more productive during this situation. It won’t be a “get ripped quick” plan, or a “lose weight fast” guide.
Right now you do NOT NEED to be meticulous with diet, and you do NOT NEED the ‘perfect’ workout plan.
Instead, you need something you can do CONSISTENTLY, and steadily improve your health and fitness day after day, until it becomes so much of a habit you can’t even remember when it was any different.
And as a bonus, your level of productivity will be sky high in all aspects of life.
Everyone wants the quick results – I get it, but unfortunately it’s time vs effort.
We have all seen the before and afters with WOW factor, but those are the same things that put people into a never-ending cycle of yo-yo diets and let downs.
I do NOT want this.
I want you to be setting yourself up for success – not failure.
So if you are sitting at 60% of feeling good, do something consistently with me here at Elyte, at least 2 or 3 workouts a week, so in 12 weeks, we are 100% feeling good, not only physically, but mentally too.
