You want to LOSE FAT, get stronger, faster, and build muscle. So you keep training harder and harder.
The problem is that all these adaptations happen away from the gym.
When you train, you create a demand for your body to adapt to a stimulus, bringing about
improvements to make that exercise easier next time. Sure, these adaptations wouldn’t happen
without the exercise in the first place. But it is the recovery process that determines the speed and
magnitude of the adaptations.
What this means...
You need to train hard to create greater potential for adaptations to occur, but recover harder in
order to give your body the best chance to make the necessary changes.
So how do we do that...
Make sure your nutrition is supporting the process – Protein, vegetables, fats AND carbs.
Give your body enough time to recover between sessions.
Get enough sleep. 7+ Hours.
Periodise your training appropriately, and train optimally not maximally.

P.S - Athletes can train harder and more frequently than us general folk, for no reason other than the fact
they recover a lot harder.
Is your Personal Trainer a liar..?
One of the things that strikes me with most Personal Trainers is that they never have a story of them being out of shape...are they telling the truth…?
Now don't get me wrong, im sure most of them have always been in good nick and never pissed off with life, so then could it be true that all Personal Trainers are born with a 6 pack...?
Or are they just talking bullshit..?
>>So i decided to out someone and tell their real story<<
The story of how it is not easy to get fit and stay fit.
The story of how stress can make you bloated
The story of the nights on the beer getting pissed to block out the shit times....who could this be...??
Now that i have peaked your interest you may be wondering, who is this trainer..??
Who did i research to give you an idea of the real them..??
>>>>That trainer i researched is me...
This is me (see below) when I was at my lowest
On the left is me around 14 years ago, I was a serving Physical Trainer in the armed forces and was a bit chunky to say the least.
At the time of this picture I was in a bad way, a bad relationship and a bit of a daft lad who drank and ate too much.
The stress I put my body under, through neglect and handling it with beer was immense, it was the worst and most unhealthy I have ever been
Today it's a different story, the picture on the right is me loving what I have right now.
A great relationship with fantastic family/friends and limited visits to the boozer
What this shows is that genetics don't make you unhealthy and fat, it's your lifestyle stress, relationships and bad nutrition choices that make you fat.
All you need to know is that everyone has their own private journey and that, when you are ready to change and admit that it is you who is at fault..... We will be waiting to help
