Planning your workouts is imperative. How many times have you found yourself wandering around the gym with no idea of what to do while you’re there?If you fail to plan than you will plan to fail. And by fail, I mean not truly accomplish what goals and desires are when working out.
I would highly suggest writing down what you want to do the night before if you work out in the mornings. If you work out in the evenings write it out during the day, maybe on a lunch break. I think this accomplishes three things. One, it prepares your mind for your workout. You have put forth the effort of writing it down. This subconsciously tells your mind that it must be important enough to actually accomplish and get done. Two, it helps you have a more focused and intense workout because you are not wasting time wandering around aimlessly trying to decide what to do during your workout. Three, it helps you achieve your goals in a much more proactive fashion. If your goal was to drop five pounds and get a flatter stomach, wouldn’t it be beneficial you think to spend time doing core exercises and cardio training? If you have your plan in place you know what needs to get done to achieve the results.
These are just a few reasons I believe you should come prepared before you workout. What are your suggestions for creating an effective workout plan?
