Paralysis by analysisBy Ryan Charles Reyes
Who among you would like to be great? You cannot be great when
you keep asking yourself average questions because it is given,
when you ask your self average questions, you will give average
answers. You want to be better? Then ask better questions because
for sure, your mind will give you better answers.
THAT CHAMPION EXPERIENCES SOME SORT OF VICTORY.
SO WHERE TO START?
The first and most important
step is to set a goal for yourself.
Here are some tips to make your
goal more achievable instead of
just a dream: example gym even
if you read all the books , watched
all the videos, but if you don’t
flex that muscle there will be no
S – make it Specific. A good goal
is very definite. i.e. Increase
my barbell Snatch to
bodyweight (90kg) by the end
of the year.
M – is for Measureable. Using my
previous example, I have done
that by setting a weight goal
to beat. If I lift that weight I
have accomplished my goal.
A – is for Achievable. It would
make little sense for me with
my body type and experience
with Olympic lifting, to try
to beat the world record for my
weight class at 187kg.
R – is for Realistic. While an eventual
goal of 1.5 times bodyweight
may be achievable, for the next
year it will be impossible. Hoever,
my goal of a bodyweight
snatch won’t be.
T – is for Time based. By setting a
deadline for your expectations
you drastically increase your
chances of success.
