Start with a Positive Mind

People often seek motivation which there's nothing wrong with it, but remember your wasting time looking at nice pictures with nice quotes. you could be doing your workout now! Everything you need is in your head just go and do it. What's stopping you? YOURSELF! It's your choice to get off the computer and hit the gym, It's your choice to sit on your laptop and eat bad food. You can't blame it on anyone else but yourself. Your health is all on you and no one else! This is why I like fitness you determine what you want to workout, Everyone else that doesn't have their ideal body is just cheating themselves or over doing things. People think they can go to the gym everyday and work the same muscles. You can't! Your not superman you need sleep and you need rest! You need nutrients to keep the body going and healthy otherwise your body will start to dwindle and fatigue. If you don't like working out alone find a friend or if you don't have any just make up a evil twin that constantly tells you that you can't do it. What better way to be motivated than to have someone say your not capable to do it. This is probably the biggest driving force for me. I love telling myself I can't do something then prove myself wrong. It's reverse psychology! Some people quit when they hear negative comments and those are the people that fail in this world! People constantly criticize, judge and hate. That's life feed off that negative energy instead of feeling sorry for yourself. Lots of people feel sorry for themselves and that's why they will never be better than average. That's why they will never be anything more than ordinary. Those are the ones that make excuses, those are the ones that try to tear others down that achieve what they want to be. Now go and get what your worth!

Cardio for a beast

Cardio is a key part to my workouts lately, I typically run a fast paced 2.5 mile run at about 90-80 percent of a sprint. This helps build endurance and will really help lean out the body. I rather do miles over sprints because sprints are harder on the joints and cause more issues with ligaments and muscles. I typically do a 2-4 mile bike ride as well during the day depending on how I feel. I do the bike ride as fast as I can ride, I don't do it to relax or cruise it's fast paced and only takes about 15 minutes to do, so time shouldn't be an issue when biking. The harder you ride the harder you work your leg muscles, it really helps loosen up your legs. I do my cardio before My workouts because it helps you battle fatigue. Doing this will really help with your endurance.

5 tips to gain muscle mass fast

1. The first step is increase your protein intake! Protein is the building block for larger muscles.

2. Increase the weight your using during your workouts, You will want to do less reps and more weight.

3. Do your max weight several reps by doing negatives. You will need a spotter to help you. The idea is going down very slow and having the spotter help you push it up. This will maximize growth and size by forcing the muscle fibers to breakdown and later expand.

4. Drink plenty of water! Water helps with building muscle tissue.

5. Change up your workouts and don't be afraid to go to failure.

5 things that are detrimental to health

1. Not eating isn't going to make you skinnier, it will actually cause you to bloat and make your body hold on to more fat. This is because the body goes into something called "starvation mode" Your body doesn't know when it will be fed next so it hangs on to fat to keep it functioning.

2. Not drinking water to have more veins. This is dumb because your body needs water to grow. Your body is mainly made of water why would you starve it from that? It's stupid. If you want veins decrease body fat, or take amino acids which increase blood flow.

3. not getting 6-8 hours of sleep. This effects your thinking process, causes mood swings, and your body wont grow if it's not getting enough sleep. Sleep deprivation destroys your health all around and makes you feel bad the next day in most cases relying on caffeine is no excuse.

4. Not making your meals before going to work. If you don't make your meals your more than likely going to eat garbage at a fast food restaurant. To avoid this prepare your meals for each day on the weekend and place the meal in plastic containers with labels. This will make you more organized and help you with eating healthy through the week which will make you more lively.

5. Avoid foods that contain a lot of sodium and high fructose corn syrup. High fructose corn syrup is hard for the body to digest and is bad for the liver. When you eat to much sodium it makes your blood pressure go way up. Salt also works on your kidneys which makes your body hold on to more water.
