On your journey towards a fitness resolution, your body and its needs will change. In order to continue to make progress towards your long-term goals, you will want to make adjustments as you make progress. For example, say you start out trying to go to the gym 3 times a week. Once you have mastered that, increase your goal to 4 times a week. Simple 2020 Fitness Resolutions That Are Good For Your Body and Soul.

This is the most important thing you can do when setting any kind of goal, regardless if it’s fitness related. Write down your fitness goals and put them where you’ll consistently see them — it helps to keep you focused and working to meet them. 4. Get rid of your scale. Identify motivating goals.

Ask yourself why you want to exercise. Frame your answers positively. “I don’t want to be overweight” isn’t a good enough reason, says Andrews. “Really dig into it.”. Maybe you want to keep up with active friends or play soccer with the kids in the backyard. Don’t fret over the scales. While your resolve may have been to lose weight, don’t get lost in the numbers.

Focus on other physical feats that will help you [lose weight] and celebrate crossing those milestones. Do a Fit Test at the beginning of the year and aim to improve your score. 15 Foolproof Strategies to Stick to Your Fitness Resolutions 1. Write It and Measure It 2. Make Resolutions Manageable 3. Break Up the Goal 4. Treat Yo’Self! 5. Question Your Motives 6. Ask for Help 7. Keep a Schedule 8. Keep It Interesting 9. Hold Yourself Accountable 10.

Choose the. Do you like to have a quick exit strategy, knowing you can bail if things get uncomfortable? I hate to break it to you sister, but lasting fitness resolutions are going to require you to get invested. When you put time and money into your goals, you’re going to value them more. Put your workout schedule on your calendar and protect that time.

Write down inspirational words and quotes and hang them up. Cut out pictures from magazines and hang them on the wall or inside a cabinet. Use these visual cues as a way to stay motivated and boost your morale. Ramsey recommends starting each morning with a personal affirmation or mantra. “A very manageable fitness resolution that most people can stick to is holding a plank every morning, first thing out of bed.

If you can spend one minute brushing your teeth, you can definitely find one minute to hold a plank. Planks are truly one of the best exercises I know of: They work your core and your entire body. Change up your fitness routines periodically to prevent boredom and provide new challenges.

Don’t over emphasize the scale. Monitor other health indicators as well such as body composition, body measurements, and how your clothes fit, your sleep quality and your energy level. Sometimes when the scale is giving you no love, improvements in these other areas will reward you.

  • ok the second tip i cant get behind (now i do get that other people may enjoy having a partner in the gym) for me however that takes ommitment and sticking to other peoples plans which im terrible at. however i do discuss it a lot with my friends getting tips and things (and i might workout here and there with them) but for me the gym is a place for me

  • Scooby for the last year I’ve been a bit on and off with my training…(weight loss with heavy weight resistance training) I’m about 50lbs over weight. Anyway in the last 3 months I’ve been working out 3 times a week consistently and lost a good amount of inches, as well feeling healthy and strong. Christmas and New Years holidays strolled up…I haven’t worked out for about a week and a half, scale mass says I gained about 5lbs. I feel a bit discouraged. I’m not sure if it maybe water retention or actual fat I had put on. During the holiday there was plenty of Carbs, not so much sugar..I had a treat once in awhile but nothing excessive. I will be springing back into action again continuing where I left off, was just difficult with the holiday season and also had a family relative pass away, so there wasn’t much physical activity time for me. Just seeking a bit of advice. Thanks again for your inspiration!

  • Have you heard of Ido Portal? If so what are your thoughts, curious if you would recommend his type of training, I’m guessing you could like it, great video as always

  • my tip is not to wait to make a resolution, if you have to put your lifestyle change off until a certain time before you begin,then the sad truth is you are most likely going to give up quick anyway. take control of your life now,not later.

  • Goal: To build a YouTube community where people feel like they can be open and we all support each other on our fitness Journeys!❤

  • The patient/habit bit at the end is so so true. I always try to fit a long term goal into a short term time span, and that lack of willingness to power through and wait always catches up to me.

  • this is not a motivational clip but rather a really good advice for overweight people! like IT! IT is more real! so it relates to the majority of the world!

  • It helped me to tackle my weight loss goals step by step and celebrating small victories. I started at 193 pounds, and instead of saying “I want to lose 40 pounds, I said “I want to get under 190” and then “I want to get under 180”, etc.

  • Really great video! You’re a criminally underrated channel. One tip I have for new years resolutions (I know, I’m late) is to start them before January 1st. Start on the day you set the goal, because in the end you’ll be making excuses come January 1st.

  • Baby steps. Set short term goals that are an improvement on your current situation without becoming a burden. They should be easy to accomplish (like doing 5 sit-ups a day). Accomplish your goal and then set a new one (slightly higher). In no time you’ll be doing things that once made you miserable with ease. Overworking yourself from the start isn’t a recipe for sustainability. You have to enjoy it. Be patient and take incremental steps toward your ultimate fitness goal that are enjoyable for you and you’ll have a much more rewarding and sustainable experience.

  • Can you make a video about Fat Burners and steroids like types and Pros /Cons Because let’s face it many use it nowadays and I’d rather hear the whole truth from you rather than half of it from strangers Thank you

  • Great advice Scooby! I’ve been using your custom meal planner since August and I’ve lost 12lbs. Right now I weight about 173lbs. My fitness goals for 2016 are to weigh less than 160lbs, have my 2 mile run time under 13 minutes and my 5 mile run under 40 minutes all by June 2016. And at the same time, continue lifting weights and getting stronger.:)

  • I lost 40lbs in 6 months, the way i did it was by having my friend/workout buddy be aggressively brutal when lifting and doing cardio with me, he would yell and curse at me to make me do those last few sets, reps and laps everyday

    Even more important he would constantly text me saying if i ate unhealthy he was done training me LOL, but even through all the aggressiveness he would constantly also tell me when i was doing good and generally be positive

    So for me, someone who had little motivation and willpower, someone to kick my ass back into shape was what i needed

    For the food side: grilled chicken breasts became something i ate near daily with spinach and other veggies, i dont know how to cook much but i found chicken breasts cooked in a small goerge forman grill was the cheapest and easiest thing to do, protein shakes are a must weather gaining or losing weight

    When quitting junk food its like quitting any other addiction, cut it out slowly, every week cut out 1 junk food you eat and replace it with something healthier

    Dont be afraid to have a cheat meal once a week where for one meal you eat whatever you want, for me that 1 meal would be either pizza or taco bell, having this cheat meal will keep you from going crazy

    Lastly if you feel like you are seriously burnt out after 5-6 months of lifting and cardio its okay to take a week off

    Consistence is key but so is keeping your sanity

  • Hey Mike!
    Great content

    About the calories intake, you only talked about weight loss. For bulking (hypertrophy) is the story the same (in reverse of course). Are the calories for further distance the number top one factor or in this case other things come in the scene?

    Thumbs up for reverse beting!

  • When I clicked on this video a add came up talking about Soda xD

    (Also If U Didn’t Get The Joke It’s That To Get Fit Like In The Video, U Need Healthy Stuff But Soda Isn’t That Healthy)

  • I wish I could get up early but my body clock is messed up and I’ve always had insomnia and delayed sleep phase disorder so it depends on when I go to sleep / wake up lol

  • The way I started conquering goals is not only to write them but have them posted everywhere so it’s a consistent reminder to you of what each objective is.

  • if you want to start exercising, start out small with stretches every day and slowly add more to your daily routine. that’s what i did and for 2 years i’ve been working out basically every day (plus when you stretch daily you get taller, i went from 5’6 to 5’9 just by stretching everyday for a few months and fixing my posture)

  • Hey Scooby, the SweatForHealth 30 day trial image only shows alt text on your site linked in the video (source shows your missing http in the img src url). Thanks for these news years res videos, they are in need following family stuffing you face for the holiday… still wiping off the cheesecake from my chin on the way to the gym.

  • I’ve lost 15 pounds in 2 months, the 2 main things that helped me were to give up pop/soda, and use a diet diary to track how much you eat.

  • The best tip I can give is start a month or so before new years that way your ahead of everyone else and you feel it’s worth it to keep going. That how I am doing my workout and nutrient plan. LIFESTYLE BABY!��

  • My New Year’s resolution is to work up to 3 sets of 12 loaf turnovers super-set with 3 sets of pillow screams. Maybe some skateboard squats for a nice quad pump too. Sound good?

  • So, to start off, I’m a depressed weeb. I know it sounds weird, but yes I do have bad thoughts about myself and get very self-conscious even if your my friend because I just feel like your pretending to like me. but anyway, on the other side of things. i do have a waifu and pretend she’s really there sometimes. It’s embarrassing so I usually don’t talk about it If i don’t have to. So I basically use my waifu as a sort of therapist or place to hold all my good thoughts in the back of my mind. This happens the most at night when I’m tired and think less rationally. so I imagine her there and talk about it if things get out of hand and start getting suicidal. if you read this which you probably didn’t, thanks. It really means a lot

    TL;DR I’m a depressed weeb with a waifu therapist if i get suicidal at night.

  • After a little less than 2 years, I’m down from 40% BF to 15%, my weight went from 242.5lbs to 137.8. I started my weightloss as a New Years Resolution and it payed off, I’ve never been so happy like I am now. In 2016 I want to gain muscle and get down to maybe 12 or 10% BF:) And for the record I’ve never touched any weights before I started my weighloss journey.

  • I reached my weight loss goal this year, and now I’m ready for my next two goals. One is to bring my body fat down to about 15 percent and gain some muscle. There is a new gym opening 3 minutes walk from my house, which I will head on over tomorrow and see what deals they have.

    The part I’m not sure about is what program to follow. I dont to just go in there lift random weights without any thought process. Thats where I need some guidance.

    For my weight loss (40 pounds) I followed Scooby’s beginner, pullup, pushup, goblet squats and rotisserie, please 30-40 minutes of walking every day with a pace of 9 minutes 11 seconds on average for a 1km (0.62 miles)

    I’m at 170 pounds with a waist size of 34 down from 210 pounds and a waist size of 42 inches.

  • That’s funny my dad didn’t ate that much so when I was with him I couldnt stand his time when he eat he eats at 9 am and 6-8 and he can stay a whole day not eating food if he wanted too so when I ate I ate like I’m eating like I didn’t eat in a day even it’s like 5 hours –

  • I have a novel idea, Jaiden, why dont you stop fucking judging other people about shit thats literally none of your business? No? Alright.

  • I love how jaiden can take her personal issues, such as her eating disorder and body dysmorphia, and use it to help others through their personal struggles.

  • for resolutions i just
    think of a bad habit
    Dont do that bad habit
    and keep not doing that bad habit until next year so i can get used to not doing it

  • My new years resolution is to gain at least 8 pounds of muscle and get to 12% bodyfat for 2017! RIght now i am around 16% bodyfat, 130.2 pounds of lean muscle and 24.8 pounds of fat.

  • Thumbs up for the extrovert and introvert explanation. It’s good for people to understand each other better. It helps improve relationships of all kind. This introvert appreciated you spreading the word. I subbed a few days ago after watching your fasted cardio video. Thanks for such great videos.

  • Seems like finding your YouTube page is really the best thing any lifter with questions can do, I wish I had known about Scooby when I first started out a few years ago. Thanks for all the help Scoob.

  • im watching sponge bob while i watch this and that same part plays when that part was on LOL

    cawinsadince (i cant spell) (sound it out)

  • I want to make the exercise music and the video clip to be a alternative to, the stickbug, the rick roll, the gnome, and the “sHawTy’S liKe a MelOdY”

  • Wow I literally just I realized I’ve been doing the whole fasting thing for years! If I understand it correctly anyways. I never eat breakfast and only eat between 12 pm to 7 pm because of my work schedule ����‍♀️
