THE NEW TRAINING PROGRAM – WEEK 3 – SESSION 2 – DAY 17

Wow! I am totally exhausted. And if I didn’t have a plan for my exercises I would definitely not have continued todays training session. How about you – do you complete your commitments or do give up?

Today was a really tough training session. I was totally exhausted just a few exercises into the program, and didn’t really want to go on in the same tempo, and definitely didn’t want to continue the program.
I don’t know what had come over me today, but I didn’t have the strength and fitness I usually have; if had slept less, not got enough energy and nutrition via my dietary program, or what….

MY BLOOD DECEASE IS STOPPING ME

Do you remember that I told you in a previous blog entry that I have a blood decease that affected my ability to become fit? It affects my ability to consume and transport oxygen through the body and provide oxygen to the muscles.
And today I really felt it. I couldn’t really catch my breath. So the intensity of the performance of the exercises prescribed in the training program really took the physical energy out of me.

THE POWER OF THE PRE-PLANNED PROGRAM

Both me and my wife, Lotta, has several times concluded that we would really not put in this kind of effort and really push ourselves the way we do now, if we hadn’t used our training program. Then we would have given up much sooner when the going got tough!
But since we have a pre-planned program, stating what exercises to do, when to do them and how to do them correctly, it is much more difficult to just quit doing your training exercises when you get tired. But now, since I have the program, I really stretch myself to do the best I can, and thereby live up to my commitment.

I GAVE UP

So, how did it go for me this morning?
Well - I gave up! I hate giving up. It is not within me to give up and not to fulfill what I committed to do, but I actually gave up.
I did the 4 first sets of twin exercises full out, and I did the 1 first of two exercises in the last set. And I did 10x2 repetitions of the last exercise instead of 20x3 repetitions. So, I did almost the entire program for today, but I didn’t have the power and energy to finish the last exercise.

I had to reduce my efforts since I was so short of breath that it almost blacked out before my eyes. Since it has happened before I know I have to take it a little easy. Even though I quit before exhausting myself totally, I was still shaky afterwards.

VISION – GOALS – PLAN

I stated above that having a pre-planned training program is a great help for you to continue to put effort into completing your commitments, long after the will to do the actions has disappeared.
The same goes for anything else in life. If you have a vision for what you really want in life, you have set goals for how to realize the vision and created a plan of activities that will lead you to achieving you various goals, you will put much more effort into really reach those goals, than if you didn’t have a plan to follow.

Without a plan, it is much easier to give up at an earlier stage of the process.
So my advice; if there is something you really want in life, create your vision, set goals and create a plan for its realization, and put continuous small efforts into your planned activities and you will create greater success than you could ever imagine.

THE POWER OF A PRE-PLANNED PROGRAM SUMMARY

What I am trying to say today is that:

  • With a plan you will not give up as early as without a plan
  • With a plan you will do the little extra to follow the plan
  • With a plan you are more willing to get out of your comfort zone to actually create the results you dream of
  • With a vision, goals and plan of activities you can achieve any and all results in life, whatever they are.

(I will come back to visions, goals and plans in other blog-articles, so keep your eyes peeled….)
