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 🙂
This tip is all about form while working out.
When I say form I am talking about how you perform a repetition in an exercise.
For example, If you a performing a bicep curl your goal is to have a slow controlled movement and really focuses on using the bicep. You DO NOT want to be swinging your body and leaning back or to the side in order to lift the weight.
If you have bad form while lifting a weight there is a simple solution to help you lift with good form…LOWER THE WEIGHT…don’t go for glory when working out and pick up an extremely heavy weight because you saw the guy before you using it.
If you have bad form while lifting a weight you will get bad results. Don’t be that person at the gym you see picking up a huge amount of weight and using there entire body to swing and lift it up.
Bad form leads to injuries which stops you working out all together. So guys please lift with good form, and if your unsure if you have good form while lifting simply go ask one of the gym instructors or someone around you. People at the gym are very friendly and always happy to help.
If you have a question for me about form while working out don’t hesitate to ask.
Stay tuned for more helpful tips 🙂
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 🙂
