Using the Seinfeld Strategy for Better Fitness Results
Using the Seinfeld Strategy for Better Fitness Results….
Ok, I know…sounds weird but hear me out.
I freakin love this show. It’s a bad habit.
I’ve got something a little different for you today … but you know it has to be good because it’s straight from Jerry Seinfeld.
It’s called “The Seinfeld Strategy”
And it’s the same exact method he used to pump out non-stop content for his TV show and for his stand-up acts.
Here’s what’s really cool …
We can use this same strategy to stay consistent with our fitness/health/nutrition also … ESPECIALLY through the holiday season!
How it works:
> Get a calendar or create a spreadsheet – something you can post on your wall. The bigger the better.
> Every day you work out / follow your plan, draw a big red X over the day
> After a few days, you’ll see a nice looking chain starting to build … a chain that gets longer and longer every day!
Your goal: DON’T BREAK THE CHAIN!
This is the exact method he used for creating nuggets of content each and every day for the show and then he’d string them all together.
Little bits day in and day out. That add up to big picture thoughts with huge consistency.
He knew that coming up with a show in one sitting would be impossible and seemed force. So he broke it down into little nuggets each day and make them connect.
The key is to set yourself up for success with little actions, day in and day out.
Aiming for a 90-minute workout, 7 days/week isn’t going to be realistic for most people.
But you know what is?
MOVING your body and getting your heart rate up for at least 20 minutes.
Step #1: What’s the action you want to commit to EVERY day for the rest of the year?
Step #2: What’s the minimum threshold for being able to draw that “X” on your calendar?
Step #3: Do it every day!
If something happens and you miss a day, note how many days you kept up your streak. Then start back ASAP to beat your old streak.
This is a POWERFUL way to help build consistency – especially during the time of year when our self-care sometimes takes a back seat.
Make it an amazing day,
PS: Accountability is EVERYTHING when it comes to reaching your goals. Having a support system in place means you’re not in it alone – and that someone is there to help you every step of the way.
That’s just ONE of the reasons our 6 Week Challenge has helped so many people succeed. If you’re ready for more, let’s talk.
