The Most Important Thing In Your Weight Lifting Program

The other day, someone asked me what I thought was the "Most Important Factor" in their weight lifting program.

They wanted to know if it was Cardio, Weight Training, or Proper Nutrition.

I think my answer may have puzzled him a bit because I said it was none of those.

I told him that there was a more important factor in his weight lifting program that came before any of those he mentioned.

I told him it was his attitude that determined his fitness levels and what type of condition he'll achieve.

Proper nutrition, supplements, cardio exercise, and weight training are all important factors in your weight lifting program, but it's your attitude that determines how hard you focus on each of those areas.

Generally speaking, your attitude is simply how you view things in life, how you see something to be.

More specifically, you either have a positive view, or slant on things, or a negative view.

This attitude shines through in all that you do, including in your weight lifting program.

If you generally have a good, positive attitude towards fitness, you're going to approach working out with more intensity and more meaning.

You realize that in order to achieve and maintain a certain level of conditioning, you have to "pay the price" and put in some hard work.

But working out doesn't seem to be a "chore" with a positive attitude.

You look forward to it and feel positive knowing that the steps you take in your weight lifting program are going to bring you closer to the body that you want.

On the other hand, if you approach working out with more of a "negative attitude" you're either going to:

1. Do nothing at all as far as working out and eating healthy because it all seems like so much hard work to get in shape.

With a negative view, you label "working out" as too much hard work and do not take the necessary steps to get the body you want. That's why it's important to view working out in a positive light and not a negative one.

Or, with a negative attitude:

2. You're going to do the bare minimum when it comes to your weight lifting program and watching what you eat.

With a negative mindset, you’re maybe going to go to the gym once in a while, but once there, not give it your 100% all.

When it comes time to eat healthy, you're not going to be quite as strict as you should be and you are going to give in to "instant pleasure" when the long term rewards seem so distant and far away.

So be more aware of your mindset and attitude when it comes to your weight lifting programs and getting fit.

If you approach bodybuilding with a positive attitude, you ARE going to take the necessary steps to get in shape, even when it would be so much easier to stay in and watch TV.

On the flip side, approach your weight lifting program and nutrition with a negative mindset and you're setting yourself up for failure.

Be more positive in all areas of your weight lifting program and you'll get the body you want much, much faster.
