I know from experience it’s really easy to make goals and then hope they somehow happen without having to change your behavior. Change is uncomfortable, and it’s not easy. Change requires a lot of dedication and willpower. But change also gets you results. Once you start seeing results, I can tell you it becomes addictive. It’s easier to stick to your diet and workout plan if you can actually see it working.
If you haven’t seen any change yet, remember if you want something you’ve never had, you’ve gotta do something you’ve never done.
What areas of your diet or workout have you been neglecting or slacking on? How can you take that next step that will put you closer to your goal? Take the time to examine what changes you can make in your daily ritual, and plan a way to make them happen. When you see your results, you will see how every sacrifice is 100% worth it!

Have you ever wanted to be that girl who does those seemingly impossible tricep dips at the gym?
Wait, you thought only men had enough strength to do those?
Nope! if you’ve ever seen a girl bust out a few unassisted tricep dips, you know how it feels to go back to your tricep extension machine and feel pathetic. Nothing shows off your upper body fitness level and competency as tricep dips, chin ups or pull ups. And nothing’s more fun than being able to have something impressive to do to show all your hard work.
Not to mention having nice triceps is the key to having toned and sexy arms.
So guess what? You can be that girl. I was in your shoes for a long time until I picked up a few tips about how to do a tricep dip, and boom, after a little time I got my first one! And so can you.
Here’s the secret:
- Practice them every day you go to the gym
- At first, start on the assisted tricep/pulldown machine and do 3 sets of 5. The weight should be set so that you can barely do 5.
- After a week or two (depending on how often you are practicing), go to the unassisted tricep dip bars and hop yourself up to a finished position (like the girl in the picture above). Lower yourself as slowly as you can, and repeat till failure.
- Once you feel the strength building after a few weeks, hop as little as you can till you can do your very first dip unassisted!
- Comment below and let me know when you do your first one!! Good luck!

This glutes workout will target your glutes in ways that the hip extension machine at the gym does not. Perform this on a smith machine, and preferably with a spotter at first.
If you’re not content staying where you are for the rest of your life, the only way to make any changes is to take that risk to try something new. Even if you’re not good at it right away, or if you think you will fail, you gotta do it. This includes the gym in particular. I used to never use the regular squat rack since I was used to the Smith machine, and was afraid that I would mess up somehow, or get stuck in a squat with barbell on top of me, unable to move. When I finally made myself conquer that fear and try the barbell for the first time, nothing went wrong at all! It was great. I quickly adapted to the different machinery, soon saw progress I was not seeing from the Smith machine. Best of all, I had removed an obstacle in the path to my goal.
When you’re faced with a choice of something inside your comfort zone, and something outside of your comfort zone, remember a specific time in the past when you did something that you were intimidated by, and how everything turned out fine. Visualize how this time will be the same, positive outcome, and don’t even consider “what ifs.” What you think is what you attract, so attract success and courage.
Then do it.
