The entire basis of a training system is that it is organized, progressive, follows evidence-based best practices and helps clients achieve their goals of improved health, strength and body composition. Whether or not your goal is to be a professional MMA fighter or to run your first marathon, your training program should reflect and enhance those goals. If you are working out haphazardly or you find yourself resting for long periods of time between sets, you are not training with purpose.
Training with purpose should be uncomfortable most of the time. Even if you're doing the ‘right exercises’ but no longer find yourself challenged, there is no adaptation, no progress and no purpose.
Remember your goals
We've all had moments of weakness during a workout or while trying to adhere to a healthy meal plan. The trick is to remember those key reasons why you started. Whether you're goals is getting fit for and event or trying to change your body for life, make it your purpose to train with positive mind and stay focused on reaching your goals.
To successfully reach your goals, I encourage you to discipline yourself through consistency, hard work, and dedication!
