DAY 2 of the MAXIMUM MACHO MUSCLE UP MANUAL!!!!
Today we’re working to strengthen our pulling/pushing muscles.
The battle to regain health as an overweight person is a subject that really hits home for me.
If there were one thing I could share today, that would help someone along his or her way… It would be this:
Stop worrying about what you’re going to do tomorrow and focus on today.
Try to imagine carrying around an extra 30 or 40 lbs and what it takes mentally to even begin a workout regimen. Now imagine carrying an extra 50, or 60 lbs. At some point, the goal of loosing all that weight can seem so far out of reach that people are defeated before they even give it a try.
The key is changing your focus. Fitness for fit people is all about long-term goals and strategizing a lifestyle that they love. For an overweight person who struggles during the walk to the gym its about what can you do right at this moment that will help you along the way. Then it’s about doing it again tomorrow, and the next day.
It ‘s about these small building blocks that build healthy habits. Eventually you’ve built a lifestyle that’s really cherished later in life when you can still get out of bed, or off the can.
Remember, your focus is on the building blocks, not the end result.
