- Go to the gym, do some cardio for about 30 minutes, jump around to some different machines and then leave
- Go to the gym and "wing it"
- Try to perform a generic 4-6 week program out of that month's fitness magazine that you are likely to stick to maybe just a few trips to the gym. Not always, but many times likely
Now before I go any further, let me first say you are awesome if you fall into any of these categories. Because you are at least getting your ass into the gym and moving. So good job on that!
But if you want to go to the next level and reach any goals you may have with fitness, you need a plan. And that plan, occasionally, needs to change.
