Here’s the next episode of the UNCENSORED Podcasts Season 3.
Today’s topic: Targets, Goals, and Missions
Maintenance is hard. At some point you arrive at a point of diminishing returns.
You have arrived at your goal. You reach a point where you look in the mirror and say “That’s my body and that’s me, and that’s pretty good.”
Before you got to your goal you may have had a picture of someone else, a role model or a fitness model.
But once you have arrived there, you have photographic evidence. You have pictures, which now serve as a new point of reference.
You can’t have goals, targets, and missions for maintenance without undergoing a personal transformation first.
It’s also VERY important not to compare yourself to others, but it’s okay to have a model to help visualize your goal.
Once your goal is achieved, the new model becomes yourself. You have entered the “Realm of Maintenance” and want to maintain close proximity to the target range of your ideal Adonis Golden Ratio measurements.
There will be times when you are not as tight, muscular, or sharp, but you are able to reel yourself in; returning to the “Ideal” version of YOU.
Tracking your measurements serve as a guide; keeping you on track as life comes at you.
Once you achieve the body you want, then the next goal is to work to keep it in a desired range that requires the least amount of effort on your part.
In the Fitness Model Industry we refer to it as walking around within “Striking Distance” of your “Peak Physique” typically one or two weeks out from being “Photo-Shoot” ready.
Once you decide on your target, goals, and mission, it’s time to then set up your “inner circle” support group. You need to include people who are going to help you stay on track and exclude those who would want to hinder you.
Set a goal date to help keep your team or inner circle on your side. It can be an special event, a vacation, another photo shoot, whatever you want to keep you motivated.
