Be warned, this sentence contains so much common-sense you might find it hard to believe.
“Train & eat for the body you want, not the body you have.”
A very simple concept, yet one that many people fail to adhere to, like, ever.
If someone was to come and ask how they could build an aesthetic look like that of a classic body building champ, you’d be fair in the thought process that said person oddly enough would need to train and eat like a body builder, right?
Well even if that is the case people will try and achieve that goal by training in an entirely different way, sometimes one that contradicts the goal they want to achieve, yet they don’t see anything wrong with this thought process…. Madness!
If you want a specific result, that’s great, now accept you have to do specific things to get that result.
You have to hire specific coaches, if powerlifting is your goal find a PL coach. If it’s athletics then find a track and field coach, it’s quite simple really.
It is true you meet some people who break the rules, but chances are if you’re reading this, like me you’re not one of those people so don’t try to be. Seek out people who have achieved the goal you desire and you’ll find their answers are not too dissimilar, honestly, there is a reason people who train in the 6-12 rep range tend to gain more muscle than those training in the 1-6 range who gain more strength.
That’s it for today.
Train & eat for the body you want, not the body you have.
