Before you walk to the gym you have some important tasks to do. You need to sit down and think about what you want to achieve and where you want to be and give yourself time to get it. You see that you must set goals, not just for bodybuilding but for all your aspects of life. You will not see results if you do not set goals. The most successful bodybuilders around the world have all the goals and keep records of them and those they have achieved. This is a great way to be motivated day by day and keep track of your progress over the years.
Your goal should be …
Get a training diary to write your goals and manage your progress. Remember that the SMART analogue? When writing your goals, you should be specific, measurable, realistic and time-consuming. By writing down each goal you really make them, instead of being a vague hope of the future.
Set a long, short and medium goal, so you set a deadline to reach your goals that will help you keep on target and dedicated. I recommend that you set a weekly goal and aim to be successful weeks that move you towards your goals. It does not take a long time to achieve these results in weeks to add to the successful years; You will beat those long-term goals with ease. By having strict deadlines or timelines, you will be guilty of missing meetings or eating unhealthy foods.
You must have a training journal
Apart from keeping you interested, your training journal is a great place to list what you do in the gym, the weight you use and the reps you make so that you can track with your progress and gradually increase the strength of your training. If you find that your training is on the highlands and you do not seem to be able to recover further than you know it's time to rest or change your life to keep your muscles challenged.
There are a lot of people who can push you to achieve your goals; although most of it has to come from you, it's bad enough. You can draw support from your friends and family when going hard and having a training club or coach will definitely help you achieve your goals. If your goal is to compete in competitions then you should really find a coach.
If you fail to achieve any of your goals as you set, do not give up. You should constantly review your goals all the time and keep track of your progress. Then you can change your goals and your training appropriately. Body building is not an easy sport and it takes a lot of work and work, setting yourself goals that make the task much easier.
