Take home points

Here are the take home points from each of my articles so far…

  • Don’t compete with anyone except yourself
  • Strive to be the best possible you you can be
  • Don’t think fitness is ever going to be easy
  • Understand that forming good habits is a gradual process
  • Realise you are going to cheat, its how you deal with it afterwards that matters
  • Don’t trust your scales alone
  • Expect your weight loss to vary week to week
  • Muscle weighs more than fat
  • The more muscle you have the more calories you will burn at rest
  • Girls do not have enough testosterone in their bodies to get bit so don’t be afraid of lifting heavy weights
  • Measure your progress by increasing how many times you can do something in a specific time
  • Take pictures to monitor your progress
  • White is shite
  • Avoid processed foods
  • Take a protein hit straight after your workout to boost the muscle healing process
  • Try low fat dairy options are a great way to get good fats and proteins in your diet
  • Shakes are a great way to fill up
  • Try drinking water if you’re hungry you may be dehydrated
  • The two main types of anaerobic exercises are isolated and compound
  • Isolated movements concentrate on one joint specifically whist compound movements use multiple joints
  • Take due care when using isolated movements as injury is most common here
  • Harness the magic three: Bench press, Lunges and Squats at the core of your anaerobic workout in order to get the best gains over all
  • Look at your sources
  • Don’t take “experts” opinions as gold
  • Don’t be intimidated by scary sounding science words and jargon
  • Don’t get hauled into a sales scam
  • Go easy on supplements

 

  • Eat little and often
  • Eat proteins and fats with every meal
  • When choosing carbs avoid white flour like the plague
  • If you do give into your cravings don’t worry, just make sure you jump back on the bandwagon tomorrow!
