This is even easier. You’re already succeeding. Most studies agree any physical activity, no matter what one does, will improve measurable markers of health. Cardio and strength training combined is better than one alone but one alone is way better than none at all. Add in a halfway decent diet and boom you’re already… Read more
Ya this is pretty great and I agree with all of it. The fundamental issue is there is a lot of misinformation both actively spread by charlatans and idiots. Add in some tribalism and now god help us political (if you don’t think Vegan vs. Carnivore is political now I envy the bubble you live in) nutritional debate its… Read more
The key is not being lean but also not being overweight. Its hard to build muscle and strength when perma-lean, but its pretty easy to do so when you’re eating at a true maintenance. Its also nice as you discover what your actual maintenance is. I cant tell you the amount of people who thought they had to eat 500 or… Read more
This is why I gave up bulking and cutting. I find its so much easier to live close to maintenance perpetually. A small deficit here, a small surplus there, its a lot easier the the up down cycle. Not that I really have a choice these days, with gyms lockedown for at least six more weeks I’m stuck at my deflated, but… Read more
Came here to help with the ratio!
Ya I did I followed the science. Outdoors is safe.
Lockdowns baby. Literally nothing else to do.
Sure but even when other standard variables get added in, since you asked SO nicely. Weight stayed constant during this, actually my intense cardio dropped to zero as it was during the gym lockdowns I did this so I did not have access to the ellipticals which is my favorite form of cardio. Basically the only variable… Read more
Bingo! Its the genetic lottery and for woman its where you store your fat. Some hit the jackpot and store almost all their fat on their glutes and none on their abs and thighs. Most aren’t that lucky.
Bigger issue for a lot of people is hips. Some people cannot anatomically go that deep. For others ya flexibility is an issue as well.
Lazy people love to pay for a quick hack rather than accept the truth that hard work and time is what you need to do. Influencers come in because they are more than willing to sell the lie.
Most IG models use Booty Pads or injections to get that look. There is actually no way to have a big ass and a small stomach if your body doesn’t store fat that way. Some folks are lucky but most aren’t. Sure you can build bigger glutes but fundamentally that size in the trunk will come from fat above a certain point.… Read more
I got to a sub-60 bpm resting heart rate last year (around 58 to be precise) just walking. Now I walked A LOT about 30,000 to 35,000 steps a day but it wasn’t running. Walking can really help your heart out but if you want to increase the other part of your cardiovascular system namely your lungs, you need to do more… Read more
