Strength Training. You need physical activity to be healthy & normal. You need to exercise.
Running, soccer, tennis, rock climbing, boxing, etc. Anything is better than sitting in your couch.
The benefit of strength training is that it builds muscle fast. The stronger you become, the more muscles you’ll have. The more muscles you have, the more calories you’ll burn. Couple that with healthy nutrition & you can achieve a year-round body fat of 10% naturally (15% for women).
It takes time. You’ll spend your first weeks learning exercise technique. Then you’ll start using heavier weights. Heavy weight stresses your body, pushing it to adapt by building muscle. Your strength is directly linked to your muscle mass & thus your body fat.
Lifestyle. Your biggest challenge is building a healthy lifestyle. Career, business, relationships, family & social life will get in your way. Learn to deal with it. Decide which days you’ll workout & stick to it. No matter what.
- ● Morning Workouts. Get up earlier, have breakfast, workout 1 hour later, eat, shower & go to work. Go to sleep on time.
- ● Evening Workouts. Take your gym bag with you to work/school. Go directly to the gym after work/when school ends.
- ● Say No. If you have planned to workout on Wednesday at 7pm & your friend / girlfriend / family / colleague / the Pope asks you to go have a drink, tell them you have to workout. Tell them you’ll be there 2 hours later or that you have time on Thursday. People will call you a freak, but they will respect the rules you set for yourself
