There are many ingredients to successful training, but none better than consistency. Creating a plan and then sticking to it daily does more for your fitness success than anything else. I get more compliments on my progress now that I am insistent than ever before. So how do you insure this consistency?
There are three keys to consistency: planning, perseverance and priority.
Take the time to plan your workouts. Know ahead of time what you will be doing. Don't leave it to chance. If you are into a body part split workout, know the order of the body parts. Know exactly what exercises you are using. This saves you time and makes you more productive.
As you travel down your fitness path you are bound to hit roadblocks. You will plateau. The key here is to push on through. Don't allow yourself the luxury of giving up. Through hardwork and perseverance you will remain consistent.
We all try the excuse of not having enough time. It is truly just am excuse. We make time for what is important to us. Mak your training a priority in your life. Get up earlier if that is how you can fit it in. Do what will keep you consistent.
By planning your workouts, persevering when you feel lik quitting and by making training a priority you will be consistent!
