Dropping bodyfat can feel like a long, monotonous journey. While the end result might seem appealing, the commitment and effort required to get there can be off-putting even thinking about. Below, I’m going to share some of the ways I plan on dropping bodyfat over the coming weeks.
Fitness watches have become a huge phenomenon nowadays. They can track your daily steps, analyse your sleep and estimate the number of calories you have burned each day. While I think having these watches are great – especially for keeping track of steps, how accurate are they for estimating the number of calories you have burned? And more importantly, should the number of calories you have burned dictate the quality of your session?
While investing in a home gym can be expensive, it doesn’t need to be. For most people, kitting out your garage with an Olympic barbell coupled with weight plates, a bench, a rack and dumbbells is either not practical or too expensive. However, that’s not to say you have to accept the fact that you’ll lose all of your hard earned muscle you’ve been working so hard to build!
Gyms will not be reopening for at least another 12 weeks so it’s worthwhile to invest in some equipment. Here are three cost effective pieces of equipment you can purchase so you can continue to make some gainz during lockdown!
A common misconception I get from a lot of women is that strength training will make them big & bulky like men. Their thought process usually goes something along the lines of ‘I want to tone up without getting bulky so I’ll just stick to doing cardio and lifting the pink 1Kg dumbbells.’ But is this approach really the best way for you to get that toned look you desire? Or are there better, alternative options?
Doing sit ups until your lower back starts aching or doing a ‘6 minutes abs’ session will not get you the lean & toned look you desire. While these may add some marginal benefits to your core strength, the reality is, abs are made in the kitchen. Diet is the single most important factor that will determine your success. I’m not saying you shouldn’t train your core, you absolutely should – but solely focusing on core work and neglecting your diet is like going to work & burning your pay cheque at the weekend!
Do not buy one of these!
Here are four tips I’d like to share that will help you drop bodyfat & get leaner:
