I believe that all of us, ex-sedentary people, have gone through the moment now, for health, to burn the extra fat, improve performance, well-being, or even a relationship. The point is that if you are reading this text, you are most likely to take care of or think about taking care of your body, and the vast majority of people who seek this improvement are not athletes, they are not competitors and they work sitting in front of a computer. per day. This is my case, my name is Gabriel Arones, I'm 29 years old, I'm Graphic Designer and I have a Youtube channel with 120 thousand subscribers about my passion: being a fitness & sports person.
I'll list here 5 simple tips that helped me turn from a fake-thin / almost chubby to a level of definition I never imagined.
The main factor that keeps people from achieving their fitness & sports goals is consistency!
No matter what the area, to succeed, we have to work day after day for months and who knows, even for years towards the goal. True success takes time, effort and dedication.
During my trajectory I tried several approaches, to improve my body composition, every time I failed was due to lack of consistency. What caused her lack? Trying to go too fast, to have unrealistic goals, to take radical actions from one moment to the next, every time I started a diet, it was with the "get it done" mentality, most of the time I got frustrated and went back to square one. The "secret" is to find a plan that is both challenging and enjoyable to follow. In my case, I use bodybuilding as the main physical activity, because I like the challenge and the results it provides. My diet is regulated, but at the same time flexible, that is, I can fit, in moderation, food that I enjoy every day,
2. Always challenge yourself!
The human body is an incredible machine, as soon as it perceives some pattern of behavior or new activity, it will seek to adapt to perform better that new stimulus, this is how the body changes. An efficient way to always evolve and improve performance and consequently physical appearance is to always try to overcome, for example: Did you run 1km in 6 minutes this week? Next week aim to beat that time, 1 second less, which is little, it's still progress. In the gym, for example, did bench press with 20kgs on each side? Try to add 1kg more in the bar next week, 1kg next week, decrease the rest, 1 more repetition, anyway, always try to leave the training more challenging, do not get used to the training. If you want changes in your body, you need to give reasons for your body to change. But remember,
3. Do not take the elevator.
Most of our day is not spent inside a gym or crossfit box, sports court or track. It's out of this environment. So many people do their day workout and throw themselves in the chair and turn into real lazy, if your goal is to lose fat and improve body composition, staying active whenever possible can help a lot. Simple choices like climbing the stairs of your building instead of picking up the lift, choosing the bike or even walking to nearby places instead of driving can and do make the difference in the long run. Remember, all help is valid!
4. Moderation is the key.
Take it easy, have real goals, short and long term, do not rush to the ultimate goal, the more radical you try to be, the more danger you run from failing, and the less you fail, the faster you will get there .. So , think hard before trying to do something too radical, results take time.
Did you miss it? Could not you train the day before? Left the diet? This is normal, we are human beings, mistakes happen, and when they happen, we should regard them as a step towards their ultimate goal. experience, and the best decision to make is simply to return to the plan normally, without trying to compensate, restrict or punish yourself for your mistake. I have tried to "compensate" several times and this has always harmed me more than the very "error" I tried to repair. I had a history of binge eating and an accordion effect because of that ... So in my experience trying to make up for some slip, it NEVER works.
