Do you know the difference between having a workout, train and how to train harder? There’s a difference! That difference is what’ll be addressing in this post. There’s gyms and health centers everywhere and people flock to them in the hundreds, with the clear thought of getting fit. This is a good thing but unfortunately, not many actually know how to train, to achieve steady progress. This isn’t their fault and as such I would like to give anyone who wants to listen guidance.
I will be writing this post using the 43 years knowledge I have acquired as a competitor and 6 times British Champion to explain how it felt learning how to train harder!

I believe the average individual is driven by targets and goals. If i’m correct and I know I am, this is what pushes us to make sacrifices, these sacrifices are what is required to train. Now I’ve established what drives you, let’s take a look at what is required for you to grasp what it takes to move to the next level. Which is how to train harder.
How to train.
You have a target and for argument’s sake, I’m going to say it’s to get fit. So you roll out of bed, grab a shower and so on. Prepare your gym kit and off you go, for most people getting fit will undoubtedly mean looking good, because what’s the point of looking good if no one can see it – right! I fully understand and this helps a lot. Because this will help you to dig just a little deeper when the time comes.
No matter where your training begins, you’re going to start your workout with an exercise that hopefully raises your heart rate.

In this section you’re going to take steps two and three and crack what it means and takes to learn how to train harder. A workout will make you sweat and give you a feeling, that’ll make you not want to go there again. But to train harder takes a lot more and I’m sorry to say some people don’t possess this kind of depth and as a consequence always finish second!
So how to train harder? Are you ready? OK, here it is, to train harder you need to have a target and I have established you possess this. It’s to get fit and look good but that’s very superficial!
Your focus should be the best at what you do and whoever the person at the top is, becomes your target! This thought process puts your mind in the right place to work, allowing you to dig deeper than you have ever done before. Make sure you’re fuel intake is sufficient to keep your body peaking. To master this thought and output process isn’t easy and not many people can start something like this and see it to the end, do you have what it takes?

The thought I would like you to adapt is, “Is (My target?) resting”
How to train in the gym.

How to train hard at home.
I bet you wouldn’t have thought I’d say you’d get your best training session at home. To be honest it might not work for everyone but there’s a method to my madness. Home is always your safe zone. (Unless you have loads of children running around) But this is the place where you can take things at your own pace. Find yourself and re tune your mind for success and your body for hard work.
Try this. If you like to run, go for a run but let’s say your regular run is 5k. Do your 5k! But to really test your desire and drive, have a full on workout first, then do your 5k. Don’t change anything else about your run, if you have a set time, stick to it or beat it! Don’t let your time slip and when it starts to hurt don’t try to blame it on your workout before! I’m not going to lie it’s going to hurt but if your mind is set on what you need to achieve, it will happen. Don’t give up!
