Learn everything there Is to know about fItness, performance, fat loss and lifestyle from Adrian McDonnell.
There are so many different styles of training out there right now, it can feel somewhat overwhelming when trying to figure out the right one for you.
Do you go down the bodybuilding route? Or are you better suited towards Crossfit? Or maybe Powerlifting? And what about cardio and running?
I get it. You’re not alone if you’ve ever felt overwhelmed when presented with a lot of choices. A quote always comes to mind when I feel the same way which helps bring me back to the present.
“As to methods there may be a million and then some, but principles are few. The man who grasps principles can successfully select his own methods.”
In this blog post, I’m going to focus on educating you on the training principles to allow you to choose your own training methods.
2021 is well and truly upon us and exercising more is one of the most common New Year’s resolutions. And this is something I’m all for – people striving to become a healthier & fitter version of themselves.
However, when you think of it, every New Year fitness goal is the same. Everyone wants to get fitter. But what separates those who do from those who don’t? It’s how they do it.
I made the mistake in the past of knowing what I wanted to do without ever thinking of how I would do it. With the help of these tips, you’ll be given some easy-to-follow takeaways you can implement immediately which will teach you how you can tone up, lose weight and get more definition.
When it comes to losing weight & dropping fat, is there anything more frustrating than going to bed hungry?
Or have you ever really want to eat something but you have to use every ounce of your will power to stop you?
If this describes you, then you’re not alone. I have felt this way before.
But luckily, with the help of these 9 foods below, I have found that anytime I’ve been trying to drop some bodyfat, these have helped tremendously.
It’s important to remember that not all calories (and specifically the nutrients within these calories) are created equal - they can have vastly different effects on your hunger, hormones and the number of calories you burn. I have strategically chosen nutrient dense foods which are relatively low in calories and are great for keeping you fuller for longer in between meals.
How long gym doors will remain closed for is out of our control. The capacity at which gyms will be able to operate at when they reopen is also out of our control.
What's not out of our control is our perspective. See this lockdown as an opportunity. You can still train and work on your health, your fitness and your mindset. Chances are you're not going to be able to do max effort lifting or hit a new PB on the bench press! But compared to what? Not doing anything at all?
When the economy does reopen and when things do get back to normal, you don't want to be looking back at yet another lockdown with regret saying 'I should've started in January.' Getting started is the hardest part (even if you're lacking in motivation) and I promise you, after the first 2-3 sessions you'll build momentum and when you do, it's just a matter of sustaining it.
A great way to keep motivation high and to work on yourself is to start investing into a home gym and gradually add to it over time. Never in a million years could I have imagined that by the end of 2020, I'd have a mini little gym setup with most of the essential pieces of equipment. Below, I'll provide you with some of the best pieces of equipment you can invest in to give you ‘full bang for your buck.' I took into consideration budget, space and the essentials to get started.
