NEVER GIVE UP - EVERYTHING IS POSSIBLE!
Motivation is what gets you started. Habit is what keeps you going
Motivation and Hard work – this is the key to success … or at least they say so!But who are they?
A lot has changed in the fitness and bodybuilding industry over the past few years. With everyone looking to better their quality of life and looking to achieve a spectacular physique, it seems that bodybuilding and fitness have become the chosen modus operandi. Both the fitness and bodybuilding industries have suffered negative publicity with more bodybuilders and fitness trainers promoting the use of supplements and anabolic steroids. It is common knowledge that supplements and steroids are taken by these industry professionals leading to the current antagonistic outlook and especially in the eyes of those looking to begin training and those that have never before trained. Unfortunately, these products are consumed by newcomers to both industries whose knowledge of their usage is quite minimal leading to sometimes extreme side effects.

Whether your goal is to lose weight or build muscle, you are better off achieving this through the right nutrition and safe workout strategies rather than endangering your health through the intake of these supplements. There are many companies out there promoting the use of supplements in fitness and bodybuilding, promising what you may be looking to achieve, but we can tell you this for a fact, they can maybe contribute up to a tenth of what you are looking to achieve. They may promise to make you the next Mr. or Ms Olympia, but the fact is this is just a marketing gimmick.

For those men and women looking to build lean muscle mass, the section below will be of great benefit towards achieving your goals. If you are looking to burn all the fat in your body, the second section will be of great value and should be observed keenly.
Before we get to the nitty gritty of building lean muscle mass, it is important that you realize that weight gain should not be your number one priority when it comes to achieving that spectacular look. This is because all your weight gaining effort won’t be worth jack as you have to sweat it all out to achieve the lean look.
It is a known fact that one can gain 4-7 pounds of lean, mean body mass per month but this number will decrease more and more until you reach your full natural muscle building capacity.But many people really don’t get to that point,because it requires such a desperate,obsessive focus and dedication for tens of years.
In spite of all this, you can still achieve a muscular appearance in real time as long as you know the answers to all the questions relating to the right diet and the ultimate training routine. If you are a rookie, an intermediate or fitness pro, you can gain a lot by checking out the programs in our muscle building section.
Now, let’s get down to the business of what is required to build lean muscle mass:
• First of all, you will need to fully understand how exercises should be performed as well as the correct resting time in between the exercises. Our blog section gives you more information about these important but insignificant looking facts. You can also find more information on the review section of our eBooks.
• You are required to have knowledge of the various exercise regimes for your specific body type including the popular super sets, drop sets and other techniques.
• You need a clear understanding of the types of healthy foods your body requires. These foods include grains, fish, meats, etc. No need to stress your body with foods that you do not usually consume but if you have been living on junk food then it’s about time you started making a gradual change to eliminate junk from your menu. Check out Anabolic Cook in our products section for more details.
The next step in building lean muscle mass requires you to develop a well-balanced diet which will be in tandem with your gym regimen and your daily activities. Your fitness level will determine whether you can use more specific diets like high fat and protein diets, low carb diets, carb rotation or whatever.
Although there are many more things that require mentioning, these are the key things you need to know and understand at first place.You can consider these to be your base guidelines towards better health and stronger body.
Understanding human physiology is no walk in the park and if therefore some of the things above read like gibberish to you, and you are not about to waste quality time experimenting, then take the time to go to our muscle building review section and look through the systems there. You should be able to come across something suitable for your body type and current fitness level.
The fat burning program requires a number of things;
Firstly, there are a couple few questions you need to ask yourself:
i. Are you looking to burn fat only?
ii. Do you want to lose those pounds and build muscle at the same time?
iii. Do you want to first lose the extra weight and then proceed to muscle building?
If you are in the second and third category, then you need to go back to step number one on building lean muscle mass and read more about the kind of diet you need to follow and the type of exercises you need to build muscle.
Secondly you need to understand that the aim of every weight loss diet is to burn fat and also to help you lose the extra water in your body. All this needs to be done in such a way that you lose as little muscle mass as possible. This is very important to note before you embark on any kind of diet. Not all diet programs are created equal.
The next thing you need to know is the type of fiber-rich foods that your body needs and also the carbohydrate-rich foods for your diet and weight loss program. Foods with a low glycemic index should be included in your diet. You will find that it is most preferable to take in simple carbs with a combination of a protein shake while in training. The other two macronutrients – proteins and fats -are really important and should be taken according to the right ratio based on your genetic buildup. The healthy foods contained in your diet ought to be steamed or cooked in a pan containing very little or no fat. Make sure you include green veggies as these are key in your fat burning process. Your intake of calories should not be reduced as this can result in negative effects and at no point should you go below your BMR. Below, you will find the road to your successful journey in weight loss and muscle building. Follow this and you will be headed in the right direction.
Now that you have a fat loss target, you want to come up with a diet plan that works in tandem with your body and doesn’t leave it asking, “what the heck is going on?” If you are at the intermediary level or the advanced level of your weight loss and muscle building plan, you can review the diet plans in the blog section or go through the products in the weight loss section to get a better understanding of the right direction you must take regarding your weight loss or muscle building goals.
You should be knowledgeable on the types of exercises you should carry out including the reps and sets that offer maximum benefit to your body. The right techniques should always be followed and the reps with lighter weight are most preferable.
There are two very important things you need to bear in mind:
-The type of cardio you need at the starting point
-Whether you need cardio in the first place or whether intensive workouts will be enough depending on your current physical level.
Your approach to these two points will mean the difference between losing muscle mass and burning fat. You obviously do not want to be losing any muscle mass.
You may have a lot of important questions that need answering and our advice to you is to proceed to the blog section immediately and have all your queries resolved.
The concepts we have reviewed above are more or less the most important things you need to know about weight loss and muscle building. It is next to impossible to answer all the questions that elite athletes or beginners may have but we are damn near answering all these questions in the blog section. You need to place a lot of focus in that area to make that positive change you intend to make.
