Body transformation

Standard

“…the rate at which these adaptations occur is rather slow. You will not get the body of your dreams overnight. In fact, you wonโ€™t get the body of your dreams in 30-days. In a year, youโ€™ll be very pleased with your progress, but it is very likely that you still will not be completely satisfied. Building your best body is a work in progress that takes years to achieve. Consistency is the name of the game. The tortoise always beats the hare in the iron game, and thereโ€™s no better way to improve your physique than plain, old resistance training. Your goal should be to lift weights 3-5 days per week for 50 weeks out of the year for five straight years. If you do this, I guarantee that you will see great results…”

…”Diet is equally, if not more important than strength training for physique purposes. The person who consumes a nutritious, healthy diet and stays active will have a better physique than the person who trains hard but eats complete crap, even if this person doesnโ€™t lift weights. You need to make sure youโ€™re regularly consuming the proper number of calories and the proper ratios of protein, carbohydrates, and fat. Many women donโ€™t consume enough protein, and this negatively impacts their rate of physique improvement. Many individuals regularly consume too many calories, too much sugar, and too much saturated fat. Donโ€™t get me wrong, a healthy diet has room for sugar and fat, but you canโ€™t just eat whatever the heck you want and expect to possess a great physique. That is, unless you have elite genetics or you rarely crave junk food. Good nutrition and training go hand-in-hand, so make sure you donโ€™t sabotage your gains by eating poorly…”
