Setting Goals.

The easy part here is recognising what needs to be done – ‘I need bulk up’. Whether this is to gain weight or build on muscles the hard bit is actually doing it, and doing it well. Once you have decided on your objective - to bulk up, an error many people make is setting unrealistic goals. The main mistake most people make is giving themselves false hope by having unrealistic expectations about exactly how long it will take to achieve their goal. Unrealistic goals boost the risk of dropping out. Instead you need to set a realistic goal and realise your time constraints to achieve those goals.
1Give Yourself Time to Build Your Muscles
The hardest part about bulking up is knowing how much to bulk up and what an appropriate target is. Keep your workouts under one hour. Short and intense!
2Set Short Term Goals
Aim at reaching little milestones along your way as opposed to just having one big end goal. For example if you have aimed to bulk up, celebrate the first session you have when you need to increase the weights you are using.
3Track Your Progress
Using note books, charts or visually tracking your weight and muscle gain is a great way to keep you on track and motivated. If you don’t know what you have accomplished then you won’t get the motivation or excitement to keep going.
4Think About Long Term Goals
Post up on your wall or fridge at home your long term goal, it makes all the short term goals that much more exciting, see what you are working towards.
