Finding a training program is not a one-size-fits-all endeavor. But whether your goal is to build muscle or burn fat, selecting a program you enjoy and are able to commit to is crucial. The best program for muscle growth is one you can stick to when motivation begins to wane.
Once you commit to a plan, you need to get really clear about your goals. Make them measurable. If you want to lose 10 pounds, break this down into smaller pieces to make it attainable. For example, “I want to lose 0.5 to 1 pound per week” or “I want to hit 10,000 steps five times per week.” Celebrating small victories will make your overarching goal feel less daunting. Setting daily, weekly and monthly goals ensures you can complete them with minimal stress.
