Fitness Rules to Live By in 2019
Here is a simple list of rules to live by that will help keep you moving and get you the results you truly deserve.
-Never skip three days in a row
-Always eat before and after your workouts
-Good carbs are your friend, start your day with oatmeal and some protein for long lasting energy
-Cheat meals happen, its okay
-Eat every 3 hours regardless of the time of day
-Doing more abs won't get you a six pack, heavier weights will.
-Caffeine is okay, what we put in with our caffeine usually isn't. Stick to almond milk
-Crash diets are never a long term fix. Learning about nutrition will help you forever.
-If you overeat one day do not starve yourself the next.
-Grab a friend. You will stick with it longer than ever before.
-Ask for help. Trainers like us went to school to help, use it!
-Supplements do not replace meals
-HIIT is the ticket to better cardio in a shorter time frame. Stop running 5 miles to get in better shape
-Losing body fat is a slow process, patience is key
-Be realistic. If you have never worked out 6 days per week don't expect to start there.
-It will be hard, its okay it will make you stronger.
-Do not rely on willpower alone. Set yourself up for success by planning ahead for success
-Meal prep is key to eating every three hours
-Rest days are necessary that is how we get stronger
-Lazy days are not. You won't want to workout every day but hit the majority of the days per week
-Fat loss dinners should be lean and green. Lean protein like chicken, fish, eggs, lean beef and green veggies.
-Resistance train 5-6 days per week
-HIIT - 3-4 days per week 10-20 minutes
-HIIT is to be done POST workout. This prevents injury and promotes recovery from strength training
These are a few of the things I see most people struggle with. Hopefully this puts them all in one simple place for you and hopefully a few of them helped you out.
