By uploading your workouts in the Combat Academy App, you have constant access to every single workout recorded. Additionally, with web and mobile applications you can access and review any workout or video anywhere, anytime. This allows you to review your technique, find where you can improve, and see your progression as you compare newer videos to older ones where you performed the same move or technique.

Combat Academy Tip #2: Set Goals – Improve your Progression and Results

Psychologist, entrepreneurs and experts in various fields have been saying it for years…WRITE DOWN YOUR GOALS AND TRACK THEM. There’s something to it, and study after study has shown that to progress further and achieve the success you want you not only need to write down your goals but track them.

Dr. Gail Matthews, a psychology professor at the Dominican University in California, studied the art and science of goal setting. Her conclusion – You become 42% more likely to achieve your goals, simply by writing them down on a regular basis [1].

In a study on a MBA program at Harvard, graduate students were asked, if they had set clear, written goals for their futures. After 10 years the follow up results were astonishing. Of the 13% who had goals in their mind but hadn’t written them down, the group had earned twice as much as the group (84% of the total group) who had not written down anything at all. Even more shocking was the 3 percent of students who had written down clear goals and plans to accomplish them. This group on average earned 10 times as much as the other 97 percent combined [2].

If you need a reference to MMA, just think of the Notorious, Connor McGregor. In 2007, after turning pro, said he would someday accomplish his goal of becoming the UFC lightweight champion. In 2015 he accomplished that goal.

3 different examples, all showing one thing, to effectively achieve success you need to write your goals down. If you want to increase your success even more then you should be tracking your goals as well. Luckily, Combat Academy has an easy way to do this for all your combat sports training.
