Ketosis for fat loss – Before you start.

Ketosis diet for fat loss

This method of fat loss seems to be getting a lot of attention at the moment although the concept is not new. I feel that many people who are looking for good fat loss results are approaching the method without being correctly prepared. There is no doubt that you can achieve amazing fat loss results in a relatively short period of time and a big draw to this diet seems to be the fact that you can actually eat fat and even make meals like bacon and eggs part of it… But is it really as simple as that? I

marathon tips

For many runners, a marathon is the ultimate goal. It’s a badge of honour among running friends and the ultimate achievement when it comes to distance. Twenty six and a bit miles is a long way however, and being able to run this far in one go is no mean feat.

There are so many things to think about that it’s worth heeding the advice of those who have

Bodybuilding training routines

bodybuilding training routines

In my opinion, bodybuilding is a great way for anyone to train. Like all of the other training styles, this, too, has many levels. If you are training for bodybuilding, this does not necessarily mean you are looking to end up on stage, or really tanned in some really small speedoes. Although most people who join a gym don’t know it, they are starting off with the same goals as a bodybuilder – “I want to join a gym to change my body shape.” I think the best way to change your body shape is to train like a bodybuilder.

Strength Training

Strength training is not just for bodybuilders and power lifters. Strength training, to me, is a fundamental part of any training cycle. It is the foundation for a stronger end result. When training for strength, you should mainly stick with the big compound movements like squats, bench press, dead lift etc. I've always felt that these exercises are the “bread and butter” of any training routine. When starting from scratch (new to training altogether), I would not advise jumping into a strength training program. The best thing to do is to start with a general fitness program. The length of

A Simple Bodybuilding Routine For Beginners

Okay, so this is my idea of a beginners bodybuilders routine. This is only one way of doing things, but this has been effective for me. This is a 2-day split which means that you will only train 4 times per week but you will be hitting all muscles twice per week... Click here to view and download the PDF If you are a total beginner, you should not really try this. You should start with a general fitness program, then a strength program, and then move on to this. It may seem like a good idea to jump right

General Fitness

General fitness is where it all starts for any trainer or athlete. If I was sitting on the sofa for the last 30 years and suddenly decided that I wanted to become a bodybuilder or compete in an iron-man challenge, I would not start a hardcore bodybuilding routine or start running steeplechases right off the bat. It takes time to get to this point. My general rule for any type of trainer is to build a strong foundation, and then build on that. For example, if I've been sitting around for 30 years and then decide that I wanted to

Setting Fitness Goals

A big factor for me in any project (whether for building muscle, losing fat or general fitness) is goal-setting and crystal clear objectives. I have found that a great tool for this purpose is a time-scale. For the number of years that I have been into fitness, weight-lifting and bodybuilding, I have discovered that, to get my desired results, I have to set for myself a series of short term goals and objectives that when all achieved will culminate to the final accomplishment of a bigger goal. If I was to compete in another bodybuilding show, for example, I would

STICK TO THE PLAN!

One thing that I have been guilty of in the past is not sticking to the plan. I would decide on a training program and train in this way for a week or two, and then read some other idea and migrate to this new way of training… and then, a few weeks later, hear of yet another great way to train to get some fast results and start to follow this… This is not a great way to train. In my opinion, the best thing you can do is to research a sound training plan and stick to this
