TapouT XT Week 6 Recap

Finishing week 6 means you've completed half the program.  One bad thing is we've gone through all the different workouts.  The good thing is we've gone through all the different workouts.

Now there is no awkwardness in doing the exercises.  You can start to focus on choosing the resistance bands that challenge you and doing the exercises with more intensity.  The more you push yourself the better your results will be.

3 Quick Ways to Stay Motivated to Keep Going

Staying motivated to continue doing TapouT XT or any other exercise program can be hard sometimes.  Like anything, in the beginning it is all new and different.  Now comes the really hard part.  Sticking with it.

Here are a couple of ways you can help you stay motivated and keep you going.

Revisit and Track Your Goals

At your 10 Day and 30 Day evaluations you might have come up with some measurable goals.  Coming up with those goals is nice, but you also need to actively work towards them.  Tracking your progress is the key to meeting your goals.

Keep a notepad or piece of paper and pen near your workout area.  Quickly write down notes as you think about them during the workout.  A lot of times it will just be blurbs like, "Squat Press 8lbs 20 reps."  There's no time to write a book during exercise switch out or water break.  Notes like these are meant to be reminders so you can update your progress later.

You don't have goals? 
Coming up with goals will keep you engaged and give you those wins that can keep you going.  Goals will also help you get the most from TapouT XT.  Abhijeet Mukherjee wrote a quick article on Useful Tips on Setting Goals if you need a place to get started.
