Bodybuilding Physique Update 3.

Setting my 3-5 year goal.

Since my previous physique update I have set out a goal of weighing 165 pounds lean within the next 3-5 years (2022-2024). To achieve this goal, I also decided that I was going to learn from others more than trying to create a program for myself at the moment. This led me to the idea of starting the Greek God Program by Kinobody once again. This is a program that I started a couple years ago, made some strength gain on, and then ended up switching up after a few months since I wasn't seeing the muscle growth that I wanted at the time. I wanted to try out the program again to see how it would work for me at this point in my life, hoping to see better results in terms of muscle growth. So far I can say that I am noticing a bigger back, shoulders and arms, however I have only been on the program again for about a month, and due to visiting Miami and driving back to Michigan I didn't work out for a week and a half or so besides some occasional pushups. My exact goal came about from listening to Think & Grow Rich. Throughout the book Napoleon Hill talks about the importance of setting an exact goal for yourself. Although I wanted to set an exact goal for a while now, I have been procrastinating setting this goal for the first month and a half of 2019. So creating this goal for myself is a huge motivator, as it helps me envision myself lean at 165 pounds, but even more importantly, I know that once I achieve this goal that I will be able to help you achieve your fitness goals better.
As I write this I have noticed a little more fat gain than I would like, so I am also starting to track my calories daily again until I get my body fat down to a level I would like or maintain the body fat I currently have while gaining muscle.  The reason being is that I don't want to achieve my goal of 165 and then have to drop a bunch of fat, and put the muscle that I lost from cutting back on after.

I am hoping that this will make the process a little bit easier for me down the road.  Obviously I will still have to eat some extra calories to put on muscle, so I probably won't lose a whole bunch of fat, but at the same time, I don't have a whole bunch of fat to lose at this moment (I just have a few more pounds of fat than I would like to have).

Closing thoughts.

Setting a specific goal for yourself and your body can be a massive benefit.  Personally when I think of being 165 pounds of lean muscle, it helps me be in the mindset of "what would I do to get to this goal" more often.

So write down a definite goal for yourself.  Maybe it's a 3 month goal or a 10 year goal for your body.  Whatever it is for you, by having this goal in mind you will be inspired to achieve it so much so that your entire mindset will change for the better.

Live your life to the fullest,
