Training with intention

EVO V.I.P.
We live in a high tech world where technology is suppose to make life easier. We have smart phones, watches and apps that help track everything from our exercise, heart rate, calories burned and even how we sleep at night. While technology can be a convenience, it can also take away from intentionally being engaged in our journey to reach our goals. Why do I say this? I am guilty as charged for being hands off on my training. Oh, my phone is tracking that right now, I can look at this later (then I don’t). If I care about something I go after it and I’m engaged. If I go after something and I am hands off and shifting my responsibility to an app or piece of tech then I have absolved myself of any personal accountability. For this reason I create my own personal spreadsheets where each day I intentionally go in and log my activity, diet, miles ridden, training details, calories burned and personal notes that I can look back at. Technology isn’t bad it’s just that I have to utilize it with an engaged and intentional approach for that technology to mean anything to me in relation to achieving my goals. How do you stay directly engaged with your goals? What keeps you intentionally close to the intimate details of your training? I would love to hear how people keep themselves accountable in order to reach their desired fitness goals.
 
I just set myself new goals that seem attainable but still out of reach. I like to push myself as much as I can but within reason and have aim at a new goal
 
You know me bro, ive always just been extremely self motivated... i put far too much pressure on myself, which at times is not good, but it also keeps a continuous drive ive had since a teenager... I take every day so serious when im training, still to this day, along with my diet... im far too extreme, admittedly, and i dont advice my ways to people i coach and teach, which could sound hypocritical, but thats how im wired... I have always been highly self driven and motivated in anything Im doing..
 
That’s totally understandable Dylan. I’m the same way in I would not recommend people be as obsessive as I am about detail unless of course they are asking for it specifically. I also agree with the other comment that by setting goals that are just out of reach continually is a nice way to keep progressing.
 
a GPS watch is a must use tool if you are an endurance athlete so you can know how fast you are pacing and know when to start kicking and pushing during a race or training
in the old days they used tracks and stop watches to tell athletes to speed up or slow down

but when it comes to nutrition i mantain that people should throw these calculators and apps in the trash. they do more harm than good.

I like guys to post a LOG Journal on EVO and keep track for all of us to see, this way we know they are accountable.
 
It's the same with people who make a budget but refuse to look at their bank account each day and track. It's easy to set a goal, it's much harder holding yourself accountable to that goal from measuring your performance/progress.
 
bros the best way to have intention is to keep a LOG on EVO the guys that have logs up do well
 
This thread/post was reviewed by our Medical Review board.

LOG IS A GOOD IDEA FOR ALL MEMBERS.
 
keep a log on EVO thats how I suggest it
 
I agree that a log is a must. Which is why once I have my cycle items pulled together I will create a log here on Evo. I can show other members who may struggle with tracking everything how I do it and will provide pictures of tracked progress. Should be looking to start placing some orders in the next couple of weeks then I can start posting a full cycle review and log.
