My 5 Top Tips and 5 things to avoid doing in or out of the gym
- Analyze absolutely everything . Always look for how you can improve. Only listen to the smartest people. This might be the best tip you ever learn with regard to training & nutrition! The information at the top of the tree is seldom varied, the people ‘in the know’ 99/100 times will have the same or similar theories , because its based on FACT & EXPERIENCE. The variance in the ‘gym chatter’ comes amongst those trying to make a name for themselves, do not listen to them.
- If you don’t know the answer, ask! Or better still, learn as much as you can about the topic & then apply as many theories as possible until you find the right answer. Generally, if something sounds too good to be true, it more than likely is! So don’t get duped into ‘get big quick’ claims that don’t have any substance.
- There are no short-cuts!!! Good nutrition & a solid training regime will give you solid & long lasting gains. Don’t overcomplicate things, hard work & consistency delivers results! Work HARD, not long. It’s all about maximum intensity, & intensity doesn’t mean hours in the gym. Make the most of nutrition around a workout. If your trying to improve your body composition in any direction then this is the most important time for you to control. Learn theories & concepts and then apply them.
- LEARN to train. There is never a right way & conversely never a wrong way to train , but there is definitely a MOST OPTIMAL way to perform an exercise for a specific goal . In addition, try to remain injury free! In terms of optimal use of your time its better to continue training than to be laid off for potentially months with an injury due to bad form or technique. Leave your ego at the door!
- Finally, give back & have something of value to give. Education, passion, work ethic, sincerity, gratitude ….. All qualities that go a LONG way. Once you learn something, give back, it will come round 100 fold. Set higher standards for yourself in all things, & encourage those around you to do the same
