How can I take my training to next level?

If you look at people who are successful in almost any field, you'll find a belief that they all share.

They all use positive thinking to get to the next level.

The belief that makes all the difference,

 “I am responsible and I can and want to do it”.

It doesn't mean you have to beat yourself up over anything that goes wrong.  It means when something isn't good enough, it's up to you to change it.

And only you!

When you adopt this belief, truly accept it as fact, you begin to see through all the excuses you've been employing to keep yourself from adding a bit more exercise.  And once you can do that, change is inevitable.

Believing that you're responsible for whatever happens affects more than just your training, of course.  When you believe it, you stop making excuses, even little ones you didn't realize you made.

So it doesn’t matter how old you are you can always increase you training. If you have been walking a track for the last 4 months 4 to 5 times a week, you have certainly increased you fitness so why not try a very slow jog part of the way next time.

The same comes to your muscles and resistant training, meaning you don’t stay on the same weight, but challenge muscles to keep improving by increasing the weights as you get stronger.

So if you’re 40-ish or older and want to stay strong for the long haul, keep up your exercise program to help maintain both muscle power and strength.

Think of it as ‘Super’ for your body – a lifelong plan for your functional security in your later years.   

Yours in Health & Fitness,
