New Year’s Fitness and Workout Resolutions: 10 Tips for Setting and Achieving Your Goals

Get on Track to a Healthy New You in 2015 With HGH.com’s Top 10 Tips for New Year’s Fitness Resolutions

While many regard December as a period of indulgence, year-end also marks the starting point for New Year’s resolutions. It’s a time to take stock of your personal goals, assess your progress and analyze prior pitfalls as you plan for the year ahead. If you’ve fulfilled your 2014 resolutions, how can you take them to the next level in 2015? If you’ve fallen short, what caused you to falter, and how can you achieve success in the coming year?

To help you get your New Year’s fitness resolutions off to promising start, we’ve solicited ideas from the HGH.com team and our sponsored athletes. Following are the top 10 tips from our resident fitness experts and IFBB pros:

1. Set SMART goals. In the business world, “SMART” stands for specific, measurable, attainable, realistic and time-bound. But SMART objectives apply equally well to fitness goals. Rather than making vague resolutions like “lose weight,” “bulk up” or “get fit,” take the time to identify and define exactly what you’re hoping to achieve. Then write down those objectives to hold yourself accountable, and set a series of incremental milestones throughout the year.

2. Do a reality check. When making New Year’s resolutions, it’s important to ensure your goals are realistic. People who set unreasonably high expectations for themselves – such as severe caloric restrictions or prolonged, intense daily workouts – may be more likely to give up if they backslide. By lowering the bar a bit at the outset and aiming for progressively higher goals over time, you can position yourself for success. Check out the video below and click here to watch a female personal trainer talking more about weight/endurance goals.

3. Choose your workout wisely. It’s not enough to make “get to the gym” your New Year’s resolution; you need to have a plan of action once you get there. A bodybuilder looking to increase upper body strength will follow a very different exercise program than a runner seeking to improve endurance or an overweight person aiming to reduce belly fat. If you’re a new gym member, request an equipment demonstration so you’ll know which exercises to incorporate into your routine. If you’re a gym regular interested in taking your workout to the next level, schedule a session or two with a personal trainer for professional advice on how to achieve your fitness goals.

4. Tap into tips from bodybuilding and fitness pros. While personal trainers are a great resource for gym-goers, individuals who prefer a do-it-yourself approach will find a wealth of information just a click away. Many trainers and pro bodybuilders share their expert advice via blogs, YouTube videos, podcasts and other social media channels. Look up athletes whose physique you admire, and see what they share online. For example, IFBB pro Tricky Jackson airs a weekly Pro Muscle Radio broadcast that’s popular among bodybuilders. And be sure to check the HGH.com blog regularly for curated posts featuring videos, tips and advice from some of the country’s top bodybuilders, athletes and trainers. Check out the Tricky Jackson video below.

5. Change the scene. While some people perform best by following a regular routine, others get bored quickly and are more apt to give up their resolutions when they lose interest. If daily visits to the same gym seem like a tedious prospect, try varying your routine. Alternate gym days with home workouts or team sports; or visit a local park with fitness stations in lieu of exercising indoors.

6. Raise your nutrition IQ. Many people equate the word “diet” with counting calories or restricting carb or fat intake; but the reality is that proper diet and nutrition are as much about consuming the right foods, vitamins and minerals as avoiding the wrong ones. Consider making an appointment with a nutritionist or checking out a few books to learn how specific foods and dietary supplements can help you achieve your fitness goals, from building muscle or burning fat to increasing stamina or minimizing recovery time. And explore the HGH.com blog to discover the functions, benefits and evidence behind some of the key ingredients in popular health and bodybuilding supplements.

7. Track your progress. Hopping on the scale each morning or measuring your biceps every evening can create disappointment, as you’ll rarely see immediate results. It’s better to track your progress over time, with a weigh-in or measurement every week or on alternating weeks. Since fitness and bodybuilding goals tend to involve a gradual progression, you’re not likely to notice changes in yourself from day to day. But if you take weekly or semi-weekly photos of yourself, the results will be clearly visible as you work toward your goals.

8. Find your motivation. Whether it’s a mantra or a mentor, find what (or who) inspires you and keep that front and center as you focus on fitness resolutions. Motivating messages and visual cues can have a powerful impact. Follow Twitter or Facebook pages that post inspirational quotes and practical advice, or create a Pinterest board with aspirational images that propel you to strive harder. To see what inspires us, click over to the HGH.com Pinterest boards.

Tips and Motivation From the Pros.

9. Register for an event. Even if you’re a long way from achieving your fitness goals, committing to a specific event will give you something tangible to work toward. If your objective is to run the Boston Marathon, sign up for a local half marathon a few months out. If you dream of competing in pro bodybuilding championships, register for some regional novice-level contests as you work your way toward a pro card.

10. Never give up! When all is said and done, succeeding at your New Year’s fitness resolutions doesn’t mean having a perfect track record every single day of the entire year. It’s only human to have an occasional lapse or to get sidetracked when work or personal obligations take precedence; the key is to look at these events as momentary hurdles rather than insurmountable obstacles. Remember that success is an ongoing journey, and you’re in it for the long haul!

Bodybuilding and Fitness Inspiration.

Natural Growth Hormone Supplements from HGH (HGH.com) Can Help You Build Muscle

 
HGH supplements
Helping you build muscle

Natural growth hormone supplements and HGH supplements from HGH.com can help you build muscle; Plus - sneak peak - Personal Trainers available on HGH.com

Trouble packing on the pounds? After endlessly trying to put on lean muscle after exercising, working out, and lifting weights, many people turn to our HGH Supplements on HGH.com to build more muscle. If you are tired of putting in a lot of effort with little to no return, our natural growth hormone supplement may be the key to helping you build muscle fast!

Do genetics play a role in my inability to gain size and muscle?

If you look back on your family history and see generations of small or nonathletic family members, you may not have the necessary tools to produce a massive amount of muscle gain through working out alone. Some people simply have a different genetic makeup, which is why we all look different to begin with. While it is still possible for you to get into the best shape of your life, taking a natural growth hormone supplement will expedite the process and give you the edge that some people just naturally have.

Some people may be lucky enough to keep natural HGH production up throughout their entire lives. However, as most people get older, they stop producing natural HGH. It's proven that HGH levels decrease with age, and with smaller amounts of HGH it is more difficult to build muscle. Instead of just giving up, you can increase muscle gain with anatural HGH supplement.

Build muscle fast with a change in your dietary lifestyle

The secret to getting ripped - The main reason people are able to get ripped in the gym is not because of a specific workout program; it is because of what they consume after their workout and tear up their muscles. If you do not feed your muscles and body enough of the right ingredients after a great gym session, you are wasting all of the effort you put into your workout. Furthermore, it's almost impossible to achieve the proper supplements through food alone, your stomach simply isn't big enough. However that being said, food is still important. Follow some of these simple steps: 

The key food ingredients you need to get ripped

  • Consume lean animal, muscle supplements, and/or whey proteins immediately after your workout.
  • Switch your daily meal intake to several small meals throughout the day in order to feed your muscles more consistently.
  • Drink lot's of water throughout the day - this will also help curb your appetite and water is hugely important for all of your organs.
  • Supplement your workouts with thermogenic fat burners in order to get ripped fast and cut the fat.
  • Take an supplement like Somatropinne HGH in order to give yourself a boost of natural hormones that your body may stop producing as you grow older, no matter your age (over 18 required).

Do you need to change your workout regimen?

Now that you know about the benefits that a proper diet and supplements like Human Growth Hormone supplements can bring to your workout, it's time to look at your actual weight-lifting routine. Most people get stuck in a plateau and never see muscle gain after a couple of months of lifting weights. Here are some ways you can break that rut and build muscle fast: 

Increase your lifting regimen

  • Lift heavier weights for exercises such as the bench press, squats and dumbbell curls.
  • Make sure to work your core every time you work out because it connects your entire body.
  • Don't skip cardio! In fact, supplementing a cardio in between lifting sessions works your body out and cuts fat nicely. In a typical one hour weight lifting routine, spend 20 minutes on cardio in between lifting cycles.

Keep a consistent schedule

Supplements are not magic alone - they do work magic in conjunction with working out - but there's no such thing as a magic pill that will shape your body while you sit and watch TV. So do yourself and your body a favor - while taking supplements to increase muscle gain, the real secret is to keep your efforts consistent. After taking our supplements while working out, I guarantee after 3-6 months of a consistent workout, you will be in the best shape of your life.

NOTE! Coming soon on HGH.com will be personal workout sessions with IFBB bodybuilders. To get started with a personal trainer today - email "support [at] hgh.com" and ask that Dan puts you in touch with a personal IFBB champion to start a personal session.
