Key Things that actually make a difference:
-never drink soda
-exercise daily. Hiking is bar none the greatest in my opinion. You dont need a trail. Find a treadmill with a 10%grade put it at 1mph and go for an hour. Take good bends i. Your knees when you step and work your core.
-add regular pushups to your routine. At one point I got up to 120 a day. My chest never wasnt sore.
-be active. If you dont do any sports or anything you are going to be stuck hitting a gym all the time. If thats the case dont pussy foot it. Do relatively low weight reps and do alot and dont break inbetween exercises. Get grossly sweaty. fark it.
-drink healthy juices. Glasses of oj, mango and grapefruit juice are all somewhat sugary but if you get organic stuff like naked juice of trader joes...you will FEEL alive.
-build muscle memory. If you havent had a period in your life where you worked out excessively...youre doing it wrong. For a good two years I spent a solid 2hrs in the gym 6/7days a week. Now three years later I can eat fast food twice a day for 6 months and getting back into a somewhat regular excerise routine will have me off any weight i gained and looking like I used to in under a month. Solely because of muscle memory. It also allows you to burn fat and build muscle back to what it used to be much easier than had you never went thru the process before. Thats because you may be flabby but theres still a beast underneath. If the beast never existed in the first place I admit its much harder to become one again.
Thats literally it. Lol. This probably made no sense but if any one wants a healthy diet and amazing work out routines Ive formulated my own. I fluctuate from 170lbs 5-10%body fat to 190lbs 8-13% body fat. Depending on whether im getting bulkier from eating or from my workouts and for the former: depending whether im getting skinner from excerising and working out or from chopping my diet.
Im 5'11. And with the way I take care of my health (which includes 6-9momth bouts of free eating!!!! Fast food everyday, fries all the time, whatever!) I still manage to maintain a 6pack year round. When I bulk up a bit people immediately notice and when I thin down same goes. One things for sure though, either way they always tell me I look amazingly fit. I prefer me at 190 but my body stays more energetic and I feel more nimble for my hobbies (downhill skating, crossfit) if I'm at 175ish. Basically find out the low and high end of your proper BMI and make sure you always stay in that range. If youre overweight aim to lose weight only. Best way is a healthy diet with a moderate amount of exercise. Not healthy like less food though. Eat a shit ton, but make sure everything is whole grain or fresh etc.
Hell sometimes after a few brews and a bowl Ill take out 3/4 of a veggie tray including most of the ranch bucket all within an hour before bed.
Like I said none of this makes sense but I really am great at making fitness plans so if anyone has a form of exercise they do and/or a gym they can access and they are serious about looking phenomenal (I couldve dropped out of college for a male modeling gig a few years back because of how shredded I was), without! Repeat WITHOUT supplements (besides a protein shake -pure protein no creatine AT ALL just straight whey- occasionally or if you so please, you dont even need to though. I did for a while when I was strength training Id have one shake every two days (40g extra of protein)). Anyway ya. Hit me up if anyone needs advice or help Im more than willing to drop knowledge or hand out my old routines and exercises for maximum shred and no bullshit.
