I’ve written a lot of guideposts in recent months and I missed some solid, bodybuilding philosophy, something that lies at the heart of this blog. Developing your physique is a rather controversial activity, considered by some as a vain pursuit, and by others as a way to improve oneself in the realm of body and mind. Part of this debate may be the question of whether bodybuilding is a sport, which I will try to answer today based on my own experiences in this area.
I am so deeply immersed in my fitness lifestyle that I lose touch in a way with people who don’t share my passion. The beginnings of my fitness journey were not easy and were not without setbacks, but now it’s clear to me what I need to do to achieve my goals related to my physique and well-being. At the same time, I regularly realize that for most people, it’s not that obvious. That’s why I decided to describe how to start losing weight, step by step and without relying on any diet.
I’ve been thinking about writing a sort of a trick guide like this for a while now. I started wondering what fitness hacks I use, consciously or unconsciously, to make my diet and workouts more enjoyable. I mean, they’re not exactly a burden for me, but if there are ways to make life easier, why not take advantage of them? With that said, I encourage you to read this post, which I hope will help you optimize your own process of improving your physique.
Fitness is an individual journey. The desire to embark on it must come from within. It is important to understand the essence of internal motivation from the start, without which achieving long-term results will simply be impossible. To make life easier, you can join a proven path of behaviors, but that does not guarantee success in itself. You still have to experiment and take responsibility for what you do.
The willingness to improve your physique and go to the gym means a lot. In many cases, it takes genuine courage to step far beyond your comfort zone. Initially, doing anything is enough to see the first results, but such a strategy will quickly become ineffective. To maximize your results at the gym, you should know what to avoid. Here are common mistakes made at the gym that hinder your progress.
Whey protein, often referred to simply as protein, is probably the most popular supplement among gym-goers. Anyone who starts pumping iron knows that they must drink a protein shake immediately after their workout. But is it really necessary? Is it worth drinking protein? Honestly, I’m surprised that I’m only now addressing this topic, but better late than never. I invite you to read on and hope to dispel your doubts.
Training tips cover a wide range of topics, including the exercises themselves – which and how to perform them, as well as the approach to training – mental attitude and motivation. I believe that separating the mental and physical aspects in the gym is a mistake, so I will touch on both to help you get more out of your workouts and achieve better results.
