We ALL have that one person we’d love to look like.

But.. if you’re comparing your own body to someone else’s, you’re setting yourself up for failure. Period!

So how do we get the body that we’re after? It’s a simple. Change in mindset.

In this post I’m going to show you EXACTLY how to improve your mindset for the better.

Strength training progress:

It’s about performance, not someone else’s body.

Focus on Performance, Gains Will Come

I live near Randwick. We’re ALL body conscious around these parts. Yes – I am guilty too.

However, as I’ve aged I’m more concerned with my performance than what I look like.

I still want to be proud to take off my shirt. Who doesn’t? But this should not be your focus.

Check out the video below.

These guys and gals are achieving real results. They’re making measurable progress week-in, week-out because they’re focusing on their performance.

Strength Training Instructors Should Teach Performance Based Mentality

Here’s the thing:

Focusing on performance based strength training keeps you less frustrated. It keeps you happier. Why?

Performance is concrete! It’s easily measurable.

If you did 5 reps with 100kgs last week and 6 reps with 100kgs this week, then that’s progress.

If you’re pressing 24kg kettlebells this month and were pressing 20s last month, that’s progress.

But what about looks?!

Comparing Progress in Strength Training Programs VS Comparing People’s Looks

For professional strength trainers, it’s about performance – not someone else’s body!

– Peter Bolsius

If Jennifer’s butt looks great this month and your’s doesn’t look the same, what was it like last month? How do you compare?

BUTT

If Dave’s arms are ripping his shirt and yours aren’t, what are your arms like compared to his last week?

What are his like compared to yours last week? (Fuck that!)

I know – if a guy I train at the Alpha Male Project in Emerald Beach can do 5 sets of 10 dips with bodyweight this week and in 6 months he works up to doing 5 sets of 10 with a 24kg kettlebell hanging from his waist, he’s made progress.

He’s getting measurable results. Naturally from getting stronger his upper body will be bigger and harder.

If a gal I coach at the Alpha Female Project in Randwick can swing a 12kg kettlebell for sets of 10 this week and in 6 months she can swing a 24 for the same reps her butt will be MUCH tighter and harder.

She’s getting measurable results through a performance based strength training mindset.

If you swing a 12 kg kettlebell this week and in 6 months you are still swinging a 12 kg kettlebell, what do you really think is going to happen? Not much!

Set Realistic and Measurable Strength Training Goals

Here’s one:

If you want to lose your “Tuckshop arms” get really good at Push-ups. I mean really good!

Go from 5 reps to 50. If you can get 50 good, proper, full-body push-ups, then “Tuckshop arms” won’t be a problem.

Contact me if you need some pointers – I’ll happily give you some personal tips.

(P.S. Check out how perfect your push-up HERE).

It’s unlikely you’ll get better at every training session. But you can improve on every cycle. That’s comparable. 

That’s concrete. That’s REAL.. Unlike Jennifer’s arse!

Set yourself  performance goals for your next strength training and go get ’em.
