We have been loaded with all these silly pictures and ideas about how to et in shape. We are shown weight training exercises for our legs and gluteus so we may have the “look of a dancer”. We are shown shoulder and chest exercises to give the “look of a gymnast”.
Put simply, its B.S, bollocks, codswallop, crap, rubbish, doo-doo, falsehood, excrament… and so the list goes on.
If you want to “look” like something, do what they do. For example, if you want to look like a couch potato, do what a couch potato does. Watch TV 6 hours a day and drink 2 litres of Diet Coke and consume 1/2 a pizza, 2 bag of chips and 1/2 a tub of ice cream a night. 40+inch waist her I come!! If you want to “look” like a boxer, skip for 20 minutes, shadow box for 15, hit pads or the bag for 15 and then spar for 5 rounds. You’ll be sure to have the lean, toned arms and abs you wished for.
I want you all to know what you want before you embark on or continue on your fitness journey. Don’t waste your time doing things that you believe or think will work, spend the time doing some research and active the body you have always wanted. Maybe you will realize that the goal is a little harder than just going to the gym and doing “plie squats” for legs like a ballet dancer. Realizing that with those squats there are 5 positions and variations on each.
Good luck guys! And remember, if you have any questions, shoot me an email…
