“Give me a lever long enough, and I can single-handedly move the moon” – some greek gu
This quote would be incredibly relevant if we were talking about mechanical leverage, but since this article is not about specific lifts as much as it is about executing consistently on your bodybuilding workouts, the quote is just kinda “nice”
When it comes to anything worth having, such as a business, rippling abs, a powerful broad chest, expert knowledge in some area, elite-level skills, or shirt ripping biceps the number one key to success is to create a simple to follow a plan that you execute upon consistently and know what is the best testosterone for your body type. I am going to repeat that for emphasis. The number one key to success is to create a simple to follow a plan that you execute consistently.
Keep It Simple Stevo
The first part of this very important sentence talks about a simple-to-follow plan. This does not mean that the plan has to be simple or that the planning of it has to be simple or elementary. What it does mean is that you have to make a plan that someone with half your brain can follow, because if the plan requires you to do work when you are tired, lazy, sick, or otherwise distracted, you still have to be able to execute. When it comes to business, you want to make sure that someone who does not have your background will be able to do what you have laid out for them without having to ask you questions. Your bodybuilding programs can have a very advanced rep and set schemes with, different loading patterns, etc etc etc, but if it gets any more complicated than “move big thing this way this many times” then you are doing yourself or your clients a disservice. Please don’t misunderstand me here, It is critically important that you are “fully there” when you are working out, focused and present at the moment listening to your body and focusing on your posture, movement patterns and giving it all you have got, but when it comes to thinking about what to do next, you don’t want that clogging up your mental space.
Find your own thumbscrew and TWIST!
The second part of the equation to success is consistently executing your plan. By making your plan simple to follow, you have taken away one excuse for not executing, but change is hard, and habits need to be formed. the best way to perform a habit is to do whatever it is you are going to do the same way for 30 days. Studies show that habits are formed after that amount of time. for some of you, you may just go to the gym every day like clockwork at a certain time, do your warm-up hit the weights, and have no problem being consistent. for others of us, it may get a bit more difficult than that. Your life, as you have forged it thus far, will try to get in your way of change, and make it difficult for you to make a new habit. This is where leverage comes in.
