imageIf you’re the type of guy who tends to make big plans for completely changing your body through radical work at the gym and a super amazing diet and the only thing that comes out of it is another big failure, listen up.

Let’s talk about setting yourself up for success instead of failure. This is for those of of you trying to get yourself re-started on a program but it can also work if you need to re-up your game. And it all boils down to setting short term achievable goals with your lifting and your eating.

Of course that’s going to be different for every person but the basic formula boils down to this:

People often talk about setting goals but they don’t?really know how to do it. ?One way is to use the familiar SMART GOALS formula. ?SMART stands for:


This is a time proven formula that gets results by getting you focused and clear about making goals that are really possible and connecting them to Action on a timeline.

The way to use this method to set yourself up for success is to create your first timeline for what you want to achieve in 90 days. Don’t worry about anything beyond that. And do what it takes to make it happen for 3 months. ?You will be amazed by what you can achieve. This pattern of success can catapult you into the HABIT of SUCCESS: an ongoing series of 90 day successes that you continue to experience using this planning method.

Sometimes, the hardest thing to do is get started. ?If you start off with a small chunk that you can be sure you can succeed with, you are setting yourself up for more successes to come instead of trying to climb the whole mountain at once.

The old saying goes: “How do you eat an Elephant? One bite at a time.”

Chunking your muscle goals down into achievable realistic pieces is one way to insure your success.
