Give your routine all of your focus. No texting or internet.
About to start a workout and feel a little run down? When you pick up a dumbbell or barbell, squeeze it as hard as you can. If you can’t apply much pressure to it, it means you’re fatigued. Back off the gas a little for that routine.
Headphones and your favourite music are great. Music has been shown in studies to stimulate your brain. If you’re doing a little running, choose a song with a desired BPM and run on the beat.
Recover at the end of a routine. The more intense the routine, the longer the recovery should be. This means lie on your back and regain your breath to steady your heart rate.
Apply thought to every rep. If you need to, close your eyes and think about the target muscles that should be working.
Technique over weight, all the time. No exceptions. Fortify your body against injury by doing things the right way.
Too fatigued for complex moves like deadlifting and back squatting? Don’t do them or go very light with them.
Do your cardio AFTER your weights.
Limit your cardio. If you find it boring you don’t need to slog your guts out. Keep it short and sharp. If you do love it, do it.
Consistency over time is what gets you what you want. Pick yourself a goal. Work towards it. Obtain goal. Shift goal. Repeat.
