Training Tip- Forming a Habit

We’re passing on a few hints these days, and this is one of the most important ones.

Don’t leave training to chance, or make it dependent on other things going right. In other words, don’t get into a mindset of saying “If I have time tonight I’ll go” or, “If I’m not too tired…” and so on. You’ll always find something to keep you busy, and after a hard day’s work, you’ll always feel a little tired. There’ll be plenty of times where other things keep you from training, so don’t make your training conditional on feeling a certain way or having nothing else to do.

Instead, form a habit. Mark out your two or 3 evenings in you calendar and commit to going to those days. Then make sure everyone you know also knows that these are your training days. This can be helpful as friends can sometimes organise casual meet ups or cinema trips on nights where you want to train. If they know, for example, that you always train Mondays and Wednesdays, you’ll find they’ll be considerate in scheduling around you. There’ll always be evenings where you’ll have a conflict but the idea is to get to most.

And remember, you don’t have to feel motivated to come training. Some nights you’re just not up for it, and these are the most important nights to attend! Forming a habit is one of the best things you can do for your training!

See you on the mat!
