You decide what you are going to do at the gym when you get there. Classic workout move. This type of random approach at the gym will steer you away from results. You need to have a plan in place and that plan needs to be directed towards your specific goals. Without this you have no business expecting results to magically appear. Highly complex training programs on excel spreadsheets written in size 2 font are not always the best thing either – they can be confusing and overwhelming. A simple hand-sized notebook and a pencil will do. This gives you a platform to track and progress your training from. A basic notebook is also a great place to get your goals on paper and then document how you feel or how you are responding to your training on the way to achieving your goals.
