So if we are looking at 1% improvement in everything we do, then we need to examine what areas we need to look at, both to increase our performance and health in general.
First thing is quality of food.
Are you eating healthy at least 80% of the time?
Are you eating breakfast every day?
Do you have mid-morning snacks and mid-afternoon snacks?
Do you have a good nutrient-packed lunch each day?
Do you have a variety of vegetables with your lean proteins and good carbs in the evening?
Do you drink enough water throughout the day?
Do you sleep enough to recover both from your training and get up for the next day’s training?
Do you keep your portion sizes sensible to make sure you’re not overeating?
So after your weigh all of these things up and you have answered of all these questions honestly, how much in percentage terms do you think that you can improve in all of these areas, or at least most of them?
I will bet that most of you can improve hugely in percentage terms in most of them.
So imagine after i have made that statement, how much does it all add up for you? I will definitely bet with any of you that it adds up to MUCH MORE than 1%, that’s for sure!!!
There should be 10, 20, 30 or even 50% improvements in there if you really put your mind to it!!!
So when we set the original 1% goal, it must amaze you how much you’re not really doing at the moment to maximise your potential!!! It’s all a matter now of really putting your mind to it and executing a good game plan, designed to fully support your nutritional needs that a demanding training programme will absolutely need!!
This should be a daily and weekly list and a great reminder for you on how to eat well, and gear you up for putting in consistent performances and add huge percentages to your overall progress!!!
