It's Not Working

When someone who’s trying to get in shape comes to me and says…

“I’ve been trying but it’s not working for me”

…I usually ask them these four questions.

For the last 6 months, have you consistently been…

1. Lifting weights 2-4 times a week every single week?

2. Tracking your food intake and hitting your nutrition targets near enough every single day?

3. Working on de-stressing and making sure you’re getting at least 6 hours sleep pretty much every night?

4. Making a conscious effort to live a more active lifestyle (walking more, doing active social events instead of sitting on the couch etc.)?

The answer is usually no to at least two of those questions, which means that quite often its not “it” not working it’s them not actually doing the work.

Getting in shape takes time, effort and consistency.

Consistency is the big one.

You can’t half arse it or only put the work in when it suits you and expect to make big progress ‘cos it won’t happen.

You can’t just track Monday to Friday then go nuts every weekend and expect your results to be exceptional ‘cos they won’t be.

You can’t train three times this week, then once next week then have a week off and expect to get stronger, leaner and more toned ‘cos you won’t.

I know it’s not sexy but you simply have to do the basics week in, week out for months and years at a time.

That’s how you get results, and the basics you need to stick to are in the questions I asked earlier…

You need to lift weights 2-4 times a week.

You need to track your food intake and hit your targets every day.

You need to de-stress, have fun and make sure you sleep well.

You need to lead an active lifestyle – get up and move around more.

It doesn’t matter who you are if you do that consistently for 12 months and beyond and your results will be outstanding.
