Thinking you have to be perfect will be your undoing! Being consistently good is far better than inconsistently perfect!
It’s amazing how people give it the beans with their health and fitness drive only to fade like a cheap battery. 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 10,000 steps and meal timing. The only meal allowed being kale and chicken and it has to be before 6 pm.
These directives constructed from some half-baked fitness claim from someone. Or derived from an article from a Men’s Health.
This is not the only magazine that sensationalizes everything. They have to. How else are they going to keep subscription rates up? Not by telling people that there is only one way to lose body fat (and it’s not a workout before you ask!) That would be boring. And why let the truth get in the way of a good story, the editors are thinking.
If you cut back all the crap 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. Nor conflicting articles surrounding muscle growth and fat loss.
And there would be no need for the celebrity on the front cover whose Personal Trainer has got them to do some resistance training. Achieve 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 consistent and you’re good!
