It can be incredibly sobering to think that our fitness goals can get worse as we age. But if we want to get extremely fit, we always look at the athletes and sports stars. But it is important to remember that when we look at them, we really want to imitate these people? What do you really have to do if you really have a real athletic goal and want to be like the people you see on TV? And is it realistic?
Decide on an actual training goal
Deciding what your ultimate goal is instead of just saying you want to get strong or fit will give you perspective. And this means that once you start gaining perspective, you will be motivated. However, this means that you need to look at what athletes are doing and try to achieve their goals. However, this takes dedication, possibly too much dedication, to actually achieve these things. Because as we get older we can get a little weaker physically, but we also need to remember that recovery is important. And in terms of what athletes use to recover, be it a sports podiatrist or a sports masseuse, if you really want to achieve the athletic goals you have in mind you need to be committed. And this means that you will need a lot more time to recover, but also learn how to train like an athlete. This means that you are giving a lot more of yourself than you might think.
What will this accomplish?
When it comes to general physical fitness, you have to have a right goal. And if we have a general goal and wonder if it makes us fitter and healthier, that's perfectly fine, but when we put so much time and effort into getting up at 5 a.m. to run 10 km, we have to Ask yourself if this will make a difference in our lives. Because training like an athlete means showing a lot more than you think. The point is to make sure you are getting enough macronutrients while also spending a lot of time exercising once or twice a day, 6 days a week. And because we see actors and other people doing it to get in shape for a role, we think we might as well. But for these people it is their job. We also need to remember that these people are not only fit for life but also have a lot of pressure. Fitness models are a fantastic example as not only do they have the pressures of showing a pack of 8 with 5% body fat or less, but they also have to miss out on things in life. So you have to be wondering if you really want to do a rigorous routine right?
What is your system for success?
It's important to have a system. It's about making sure you know what you're training for, but also that the system is sustainable. Do you really get the chance to hit the gym twice a day when you have a job? And these are the very things you need to keep in mind in the foreground of your mind. Because if you spend a lot of time getting as fit as an athlete, you need to make sure there is a system in place to endure it, but your life won't suffer either.
You can do it, but you have to be committed
You can't escape bad diet, but you need to find the right balance. There are so many people who have spent a lot of time going about being slim like Chris Hemsworth and they have gone in the opposite direction. And so you have to ask yourself the real question, "Why do I want to do this?" Because when it comes to looking good in the mirror, it will only feel good for a few months. Then you will begin to change your goals. But if you are doing it for health and fitness you can certainly aim to be as fit as an athlete 20 years younger than you, but there may come a point where you are happy with your fitness level because people your age are struggling to catch up with you. If so, you might want to sit back and relax and trust that you have worked hard to become as good as an athlete 20 years younger than you, but you are sure to be the best athlete in your age group!
