How Do I Get In Shape?

Thinking you have to be perfect will be your undoing! Being consistently good is far better than inconsistently perfect!

The amount of times people give it the beans with their new drive to get in shape is getting boring now. Be it a new year’s resolution or the easing of lockdown procedures that sees a new fitness pursuit. It’s quite astounding how people go about it

Sipping on BCAAs whilst trying to get in 7 gym sessions a week. Along with keeping up your 10,000 steps and meal timing. The only meal allowed being kale and chicken

Some Chinese whisper or half baked fitness claim from some person. or article from a Men’s Health to which sensationalizes everything. It has to.  how else can you get across that you only need resistance training, protein to build muscle

And how else are they going to keep subscription rates up by telling people that there is only one way to lose body fat. and it’s not a workout before you ask! Why let the truth get in the way of a good story – Their editors are thinking

If you cut back all the bullshit they would only need a couple of pages that you would need to follow to get in shape. Not the myriad of over-complicated regimes or conflicting articles surrounding muscle growth and fat loss.

and there would be no need for the celebrity on the front cover. whose Personal Trainer and nutritionist has got them to do some resistance training. be in a caloric deficit and get enough protein in their diet

No. – they need to let you know about their latest hack that has ‘rebuilt their body’ Christ on a bike! Look past the lighting, the airbrushing – the dehydration and the filter. – that cover model doesn’t look like that in real life

You only need a couple of things to get the body you are after! Keep it simple and stick to those and you’re good!
