It Doesn't Come Easy

Quick fixes, instant gratification, and being easy do not go with being healthy, strong, and fit.  Building a strong, healthy body takes time, planning and discipline. 

4 Key Training Tips

Here are 4 key sticking points that will always increase your chances for success!  

1.     Lift heavy!  Your mom was wrong, it’s okay to lift heavy when proper technique is executed.  Heavy weights build a stronger foundation by making your bones, tendons, and ligaments stronger. They also increase lean body mass.  Our body starts to lose lean body mass after the age of 30, you will want to do everything you can to preserve that muscle.

2.     Consistency.  Results will show when you put in the work.  Not every workout will be epic and they don’t need to be.  Punch your time card at the gym 2-4 days a week for months upon months and see what happens. You will be amazed! 

3.     Don’t forget about your legs.  Abs, abs, abs, arms, and chest are often the go-to when it comes to muscles worked.  I totally understand the vanity part, but if you want to be strong, train your legs.  Learn how to squat. And when I mean squat make sure your hip crease goes below your knee!

4.     Fun! Working out should be fun and should include things that challenge you and things that you want to do.  When things are fun, you are more likely to do them!
