TRANSFORMS TIPS 4: “Less is more” Why weight? Start today :P


Hey guys,

Todays tip is about muscle growth and what you can do to maximise yours.

When your at the gym do you notice that one person who’s muscles are popping out of their arms, does it make you want to work out for so much longer thinking you will get huge results. Well STOP, that person is probably only at the gym for 45 mins a few times a week, over training muscles is a big problem with many gym users. I see it everyday, people who spend hours at the gym working every muscle all the time, well I’m here to tell you when working out “LESS IS MORE”.

This doesn’t mean going to the gym doing 1 set and leaving, it means simply spending roughly 45-60mins, there is no need to spend hours thrashing your biceps because you will simple over train them and your strength and size will decrease.

I can guarantee, that if you cut your weight routines down to 45 mins you will be seeing results within a week or two. So try it out and let me know how you go.

As always stay tuned for more good tips ๐Ÿ™‚

RUNNING OUT OF TIME


Hey guys,

This is the first treadmill workout of many to come to help you stay fit and focused during your runs.

Often a problem people have with cardio workouts is becoming bored and unmotivated, follow this workout for a fun run on the treadmill.

1.ย Jog for 3 mins at a steady pace

2. Up the speed to a run and continue for 2 mins (Should be puffing)

3.ย Slow it down to an average walking pace for 30 secs

4.ย Repeat sequence adding 1 min to the run time.

The amount of times you perform the circuit will depend on your fitness ability, but a nice tip is to simply go as long as you can for your first workout, then each time you perform the workout afterward add another set.

Aim to perform this workout at least 3 times a week

This may sound like an easy workout, but give it a go and you’ll really be puffing by the end of it

Enjoy!

Stay tuned for more workouts and tips to come ๐Ÿ™‚

TRANSFORMS TIPS 1. Go hard THEN go home


Hey guys,

In this post I’m going to talk about mindset when working out.

The saying “mind of a matter” could not be more correct and I think about this every time I hit the gym.

If your mind and focus is not with you in the gym achieving the results you desire will be that much more difficult, when working out you have to constantly tell yourself to push. If sometimes your unsure about even going to the gym quickly snap that thought out of your mind and focus on working hard. As soon as you give your mind the option of going home instead of going hard you may begin to subconsciously talk yourself out of working out. If your struggling to push out those last few reps or run that last mile take a deep breathe, refocus and push yourself out of that comfort zone. You make think that the last rep may not matter, after all its just one rep, and thats true it is just one rep, but if you can mentally push past that rep your strength will begin to grow physically and mentally.

To reach your goals you must be prepared to push your mind AND your body

Good luck ๐Ÿ™‚
