Exercise Resistance! - The Secret Barriers that Prevent Weight Loss
Getting started on an exercise program is one thing. Staying
on it is the bigger challenge. We have all been there.
New Years Eve comes around and wham! Instant motivation! It
is only a small percentage however that sticks with it. Why?
When you hear the term exercise resistance you of course
think of strength training with weights, don't you? Well,
it can also mean something else.
The phrase, "Exercise Resistance" or ER was coined in the
mid 90's. It means, a conscious or unconscious block against
participating in a regular active program. Studies show that
some people have barriers built up from past experiences
that give them a negative mindset toward exercise and food.
This prevents a person from starting or following through
on a fitness or diet program. This is more of an emotional
feeling that controls a behavior more than anything.
"I thought the golden years were supposed to be filled with
relaxing things to do, not more activities I usually put off
before?" Have you ever just resented having to exercise now
that you are older? "Why should I start exercising? I will
not follow through-never have. It will be just another
failure of mine?" Or how about not starting to exercise
because you have a fear of failure? My favorite; "why does
Jane look like she does and I have to work so hard at it? It
does not seem fair!" Have you ever compare yourself to your
youth or your best friend?
Each one of them; resentment, fear of failure, comparisons
are barriers you build up only to at some point sabotaging
your desire to feel good and get in better shape.
The answer to overcome these barriers is three fold. First,
figure out HOW you are motivated. Second, WHERE your
desires come from. And third, come to an understanding that
these barriers are only illusions you have fabricated in
your mind. THEY ARE NOT REAL! The bottom line is, until you
work on your approach to weight loss and fitness, the
numbers on the charts will not stick.
