WHY BEING CONSISTENT IS SO IMPORTANT


Imagine you're building a house. You've got all the bricks, the cement, and the timber to build the house of your dreams


All the material gets delivered on your land and the building can begin


The issue is, there are no builders to be seen


Without the builders turning up each and every day, the house will simply never get built


Without the builders, your dream house is nothing but bags of useless material


You see the over 4 transformation pillars are completely useless unless you're consistent with your actions


Hitting your calories sometimes won't cut it


Smashing 100g of protein twice a week and forgetting the rest won't cut it


Not bothering to push yourself in the gym won't cut it


Only hitting 2k steps a day won't cut it


For you to transform your body you need to be at it every single day


This is where so many people go wrong, they kinda do it, or forget on more days than they do


But that's not you, right? You're not here to kind of change the way you look, you're here to look the best you've ever looked right? To feel the best you've ever felt?


That's why you're going to be consistent.



HOW TO BE MORE CONSISTENT


Consistency is actually pretty simple: You just need to turn up


Inside your program, you'll notice each day will give you a workout or an active rest day. It's your job to familiarise yourself with your training days and then make time for it


Sit down for a few minutes and work out in your diary when you will train every week


This won't take long and it will be far from perfect, life will always get in the way, so don't worry about it being spot on every time


Just figure out where your workout will fit into your day


Now, all you need to do is show up


Don't ever think about training, just do it


If you allow yourself to stop and think the chances of you talking yourself out of it will just go up and up


Instead, just go, just do it.


The more you repeat this simple action, the stronger and stronger your self-discipline will be. Every time you just do it, you're mentally toughening


This is all part of the transformation process, physical as well as mental training


A few tips that will help you be more consistent:

  • Always have your workout gear ready

  • Make sure you actually have time when you schedule a workout

  • Train the same days each week to engrain strong habits

  • Create a reminder or popup on your phone to tell you to train

  • Remind yourself why you're doing this

In essence, the process is simple


Know when you're training. Never make an excuse


HOW TO ALWAYS FEEL MOTIVATED


Motivation is a weird one, it can come and go like the flick of a switch, sometimes for no apparent reason
