If a trainer isn't practicing what he's preaching, it's time to get a new trainer! Here are four training tips that I practice in my own life:
1. Be Consistent
Want results? Want to reach your goals? Then you need to consistently get your butt into the gym. There are no short cuts. Hard work and dedication for a long period of time will get you results.
2. Leg Day
Your legs are your motor. If you want to be a Mercedes, squats and deadlifts need to be your main focus. If you're happy being a Hyundai, I suggest moving your legs as little as possible.
3. Lift Heavy
Don’t be afraid of lifting heavy. Beside making you stronger, heavy weights increase bone density and make your ligament and tendons stronger. You will reap the benefits as you age.
4. Have Fun
Keep it fun, anything in life is always easier when it’s fun! Create a playlist, workout with a friend, or switch it up with an outside workout.
