How many of you will be at the theaters to see Civil War this weekend?
I’ll be there tonight…
I’m sure most of you have an idea what’s going on – and if you don’t, you can use the title to try and help you out.
Well, without going into ANY detail, we can just start off by saying that Captain America and Iron Man have a bit of a disagreement. That disagreement obvious escalates and teams become formed etc. etc…
They have different opinions.
It doesn’t matter whose side you’re on here. I’m going to tell you something about the fitness world: Everyone has an opinion.
If you tell one person you’re intermittent fasting they might think it’s the craziest thing they’ve ever heard, while another person might think calorie counting and paleo are nuts and intermittent fasting is awesome. There’s different ways to do things for different people, and everyone has their own opinion.
Stick To What You Know Is Working
Captain America knows what he thinks is right. He knows what system he thinks works, and he fights for it to continue.
I know a lot of people that jump around from routine to routine (both workout regime and nutrition), and wonder why their results are lagging behind. Well, while it’s good to change up your routine every so often so you’re body doesn’t get used to it (we’re talking months, people), if you swap so quickly out of pure impatience, you’re going to just be wasting your own time.
Give your body time to see the results.
Stick strong to your routine for a good 30 days straight and then take a look at the progress you made and where you may or may not be lagging.
Everyone Has An Opinion
I promise you. Everyone has an opinion.
It doesn’t matter if it’s a troll behind the computer screen, or someone that just read some random big news on how to lose 500 lbs. in 2 weeks- they’re out there.
Sometimes it’s important to know believe in the process, believe in the routine you have set for yourself, and push on. Give it time, and let the progress come.
You won’t know if it’s working until you’ve at least tried gave it your all for a few weeks.
When Is It Okay To Pivot?
There’s always the other side of the fence, right?
Sometimes something really isn’t working, and that’s okay too.
Maybe you’re looking to bulk up but you’re following a workout routine that’s meant to cut weight, or dietary guidelines that aren’t allowing you to take in enough calories to gain. It could happen. The question then becomes: When is it okay to pivot?
The answer to that is slightly different for everyone. Obviously, if you know very well that the routine you’re following is meant to be used to cut weight (maybe intense cardio and lack of lifting, etc.), or your nutrition guidelines are set up for someone looking to lose a high deficit, then it’s okay to switch it up. But, it’s important to be aware of what you’re utilizing, because sometimes it’s not so obvious and can be some kind of hidden kryptonite holding you back.
Training On A Custom Routine
Obviously, regardless of if it’s The SuperHuman Program we have on the site, or another custom routine, these routines are meant to fit your exact needs. As what was said earlier: it’s important to give them some time to let the progress start showing. That’s one of the reasons The SuperHuman Program utilizes a 30 Day Challenge.
If you don’t have Hulk-Like self control and the motivation to make it 30 days, then you’re more than likely doomed before you start. It’s important to stay motivated and be SuperHuman strong mentally before you even worry about physically.
Find a place to draw motivation from, people draw motivation from all different places (even Game of Thrones characters), and use it to push on.
I hope you can use some of these tools to find motivation and the fuel you need…
