As we wrap up the last few days of 2010 I have to ask you, ‘Is your health, fitness and performance where you’d like it be?’
What were your goals for 2010? Did you hit them?
Before you answer these questions I’ll go first and tell you about mine.
Want to know my goals? Here they are.
Back in June I wrote these down.
Bodyweight 195 lbs (currently 190 lbs and climbing)
Bench 315 lbs (achieved)
Deadlift 500 lbs (will test next week)
Swim 1000 m under 15:00 min (switched to rowing 5 k under 20:00, currently 21:07)
Sand dunes under 4:00 (will test next week)
Bodyfat under 10% (test soon)
Some of my targets I may not hit. The deadlift is definitely going to be a good challenge. And we’ll see about the sand dune. I’m finding it tough to increase strength, fitness and lean body mass all at same time.
But these are all outcome goals. They are stating a final position for each area of health I was working towards.
More important than outcome goals might be process goals. In other words ‘how will I get there?’.
What did I need to do with my nutrition in order to go from the low-mid 170’s at the end of the summer to the mid 190’s by Christmas time?
What did my training program have to look like in order to get from where I was strength-wise in June to where I’ll end up at the end of 2010?
What othere considerations did I have to make to my recovery, regeneration and day-in day-out preparation in order to have success?
Can you see why process goals might be considered more important than outcome goals? It’s because they contains all of the nitty gritty details to ensure success.
And what about if you fall short and don’t succeed at realizing your goal(s)?
Well you need to ask yourself if the goal was too lofty or if you just didn’t get there? Because if it wasn’t too lofty and you put in the time, efforts and sacrifice but still fell short there can only be one explanation.
You didn’t have access to the best information.
Had you known the right foods to eat at the right times and the right amounts you would have achieved your goal.
Had you known what to do when you got to the gym you would have achieved your goal.
Had you known all the other little secrets that are so vital to your overall health and performance you would have achieved your goal.
Because once you make consistent, repeated efforts of applying the right information, great things will happen for you.
So how do you get your hands on this crucial information?
Well it’s coming your way soon in the way of the Year Long Training Program 2.0.
This is program where participants, some of whom I’ve never even met, have lost upto 40 lbs over the course of the year not to mention the number of inches off their bodies.
But before I release this new and updated version I want to give away a copy to someone. Last year’s program sold for up to $599 and now has even more workouts, meal plans, reports and tools to make success inevitable.
And you can get a copy for FREE!
What you need to do is leave a comment below telling me how this program would help you achieve your health, fitness and performance goals.
I’ll then select a winner and work with you to ensure you achieve your best in 2011. How about that for a nice little present for yourself?
