What do you do when you fail in life? Fall down and break under the pressures and strains of the challenge ahead? Do you stay there and admit defeat? Allow the failure, the fall to remain what it is and give up? A failure is only a failure if you let it become one. A fall is only a fail when you refuse to get up. Make your decision.
For some people this 'fail'word is not in their dictionary and one prime example of that is the legend that is Mo Farah. Rio olympics 2016 10,000m final, the one time you do not want one of these possible fail opportunites to arise became what could have become the end of Farahs reign. But no. After stumbling and managing to avoid getting trampled on by other athletes Farah gets back up and within seconds does not look like anything had happened. He remains composed and relaxed, showing his drive and determination which ultimately pays off. When I say it paid off I dont mean he finished the race. I mean he finished the race AND WON GOLD!
Come on admit it ladies, at some point in your lives you have worried that lifting weights ect is going to end up putting hair on your chest, deepen your voice and give you arms bigger than popeye? Okay maybe thats a bit overkill but still, you must admit it that ALOT of women do fear getting hench rather than hitting there goals in other areas. In my opinion, if lifting weights really put on muscle and sixe that easily I'd be pretty damn big, but alas, its not that simple. So in respect to this 'fear', I have found a great little article which highlights a few myths and truths. So have a read, put your minds at rest and forget giving the dumbells a miss, they are friendly really. Enjoy
Women And Weights: 8 Myths Debunked!
By Cassie Smith
Last updated: Jul 08, 2016
Myth 1 /// Women Shouldn't Train Like Men
TRUTH: Women should train however they want.
I'm not exactly sure what "training like a man" even means. Are deadlifts inherently masculine? I don't think I've ever seen a sign that says "...
There is always confusion when it comes to protein and the gym. Where as most men believe that lifting a couple of dumbells and wolfing down gallons of shakes they will look like Jay Cutler in a matter of weeks. And many women fear that protein and weights will get the similar Jay cutler look and maybe grow a pair of balls along with the mass (Not literally guys) But the truth of the matter is that no matter what form of exercise we do, protein plays a very important role not just in building muscles to be bigger, but to also aid in recovery to help prevent muscle wastage. But the key area of worry/desire for people hitting the protein is mass? Will get get huge? The answer..... Not really. The reason for this is down to training intensity, calorific and macronutrient intake, calorie expenditure, testoreone levels, rest and recovery to name but a few. Its not easy to pack on size. But in terms of Protein being a good guy or bad guy, hands down he's a good guy.
Well here I am and here it is, my first blog on my new site www.ma-pt.co.uk. Firstly welcome fellow fitness finatics to the no gimmicks but instead all proven information, stats and supplement information out there. With this in mind I want to fill you in what I have been doing over the past month or so and explain a little more about the 'muffin top' title.
Right, I got myself up to around 18% bodyfat, ON PURPOSE. I know I know, why is someone who loves fitness doing this? Well to highlight certain key aspects of all training and nutrition. Notice I said nutrition and not diet? Diet is used so loosely nowadays, mainly for 'weight loss'. But a Diet is a lifestyle. We all eat and drink, that is our diet be it healthy or not. My journey of the muffin top is to show that with a 'Balanced diet' and a good exercise stratergie linked in with best times to eat and what to eat is going to be more efficient and healthier than so many carb restriction plans which will not only drain your energy s...
