What's your goal?

Often a tough question, even if you think you have a fairly decent handle on your training aspirations.

If you DO have a goal that is at least halfway thought through, it probably looks like;

- I want to lose 10kg

- I want to snatch 100kg

- I want to compete at the Regionals

- I want a pullup

These are all great goals.

But as a destination point, there is one problem, you don't know how to get there yet.

There are a lot of different roads you have to follow, before you arrive.

Also, you have to contend with factors outside of your control.

Work and home life, daily commuting, the health of yourself and your family, injuries, illness, ageing and more.

Can you stay on course, with everything else that you have to deal with?

If you focus more on the behaviours you need to practice daily/weekly/monthly, rather than just the outcome, then you are giving yourself the best possible chance of making it to your destination, no matter the road blocks that get in your way.

If you want to lose 10kg, make or order all of your meals for the week on Sunday.

If you want to snatch 100kg, sign up for our Oly Focus block starting next week, or book in a weekly private coaching session.

If you want a pullup, use the Crossover Symmetry system before every workout, and practice negatives afterwards.

Want to go to Regionals?   I have a 3 ring binder full of behaviours for you to follow......

It's a little bit like the 'eating an elephant' metaphor.  One bite at a time, and you'll get there.  Just don't think about the entire task or you'll crumble as soon as it gets tough.
