It’s Not The Size; It’s What You Do With It

Back in my early 20's, I had a “eureka!” moment. I had been doing weight lifting routines to get bigger, but I was not really getting the results that I wanted. I knew that I had to eat a lot of protein and lift as heavy as I could… hmmm. One day, I was training my back (lats) on the lat pull down machine with more weight than I could lift correctly. I knew that this was supposed to target my lats but it was really hitting my shoulders. I had also been listening to many different people’s opinions on

How To Succeed With Diet, Fitness Or Lifestyle Change: Where To Start With Fat Loss

Home Workout For Beginners: Where to Start with Fat Loss? I have always taken a close interest in other people’s diet and fitness achievements. I truly admire the person who decides that “enough is enough” and transforms their body from extremely overweight to lean and flat or trim and toned. There are, no doubt, millions of people who are overweight and want to make this transformation for themselves. I have personally spoken to hundreds of people who want and have, indeed, tried to achieve this change; but I only know of a handful who have actually seen it through and earned the

Are You New To Fitness But Don’t Know Where To Start?

Are you new to the fitness world and want to get into shape, but don't know where or HOW to start? I know, from experience, that if you are in the boat I just described above, or even confronting this dilemma right now, it is extremely confusing to know what to do when you consider all of the “Get Fit Fast!” “Lose Fat Fast!” and “Ultimate Results!” fitness programs on the market today. I have seen some fitness programs advertised that literally made my jaw drop by the outrageous claims and “Clever Marketing” strategies. Many of these fitness programs are advertised

Building Muscle Mass

Building Muscle Mass If you are looking for an efficient way of building muscle mass, you should really be training regularly. I know that, to most people, this sounds glaringly obvious, but there are many different ideas out there. I am a fan of split training when it comes to bodybuilding. Split training is where you would typically be training each body part twice every week, but condensing your training into four sessions in that week. With this kind of split training, you will only be working out with weights four times per week, which means you will have three

Jim’s Meatloaf: Great Tasting Protein and Carbohydrates

Really Great Tasting! This is one of my favourites! This meatloaf goes with all kinds of meal plans. You can have it as a main meal or as a snack. I have used it as a bodybuilding meal but it can also be used as a healthy weight loss diet as well. Note that it is high in protein and carbs, so, if you plan to use it as part of your weight loss diet, it is a good idea to make sure that the portion size is within your planned calorie intake. It is very easy to go overboard and

Home workout circuit training is great for fat loss, general fitness and muscle toning!
