The results most people want from training :
1 – Strength (build muscle)
2 – Fitness (not die running for a bus)
3 – Skill (learning fun things)
4 – To look good naked (obvious really)
Achieving these is actually very simple, as such we shall break each down in 100 words of less.
The results most people want from training : s per week for 3-5sets or 3-5 reps per main lift (Push,Pull,Squat,Hinge)f, carry things weighing 50-100% of your bodyweight for distance/time.
Train the entire body and you’re golden.
2 – Do some sprinting 1-2 times per week, the same goes for something longer in the endurance realm, once to twice per week is good. You’ll be amazed at how doing one of each will cover almost all of your fitness needs.
3 – Take up a sport or something that requires you learning new things, perhaps a martial art or gymnastics etc.
Learning a skill will give training a focus and stave off boredom.
4 – Eating like an adult (meat, veg, basically non man made foods).
This is the hardest element because people want to eat all the crap they can find while ditto getting the body of a greek deity, it doesn’t work like this and if someone says it does, they’re lying to you.
This link will help you establish you calorie needs for this goal:
Should you go vegan?
Yes or no?
The choice is yours.
I’m not vegan, however I know plenty and they’re happy as Larry.
Fairly healthy too.
They’re also not the preachy kind either who try to force their beliefs on you, they’re like real sensible people who just want an easy sustainable life 🙂
Did you know there are a lot of reasons going vegan improves people health:
– They start eating more nutritious vegetables
– Processed food intakes takes a considerable dive
– A greater awareness of their food is gained
– Accountability, consistency and adherence suddenly appear
– Eating more nutritionally dense foods, yep this again
There are more reasons, however those are the initial ones.
Do I feel this is for everyone?
However it’s not as terrible as some people make out, for starters you won’t waste away (unless you’re not planning your meals correctly and eating enough calories).
You will get plenty of protein.
The food options you’ll have are numerous.
All in all you’ll have little to none of the perceived issues that people say you will have, unless YOU aren’t planning your nutritional needs correctly, however that’s all on you, nothing to do with being vegan.
As with anything it’s a choice, be that for moral or perceived health reasons.
You often find when you get in to discussion with people about these topics they take one of two routes for some reason to convince you of their bias/point:
– argumentum ad passione (appeal to emotions)
– argumentum ad hominem (personal attacks)
Occasionally people draw in morality to the fray as well, usually rendering their points moot at best.
If you want to get a point across try to be reasonable and friendly, attacking someones morality or trying to emotionally blackmail them isn’t the most optimal route to take, just saying.
Now in our modern world we can live in any which way we choose, however it seems that people want to force others to conform.
If said people don’t conform all hell breaks loose.
When contemplating a choice try to gather the facts, the unbiased, non-emotionally charged facts.
Them look at the bigger picture and decide if it’s for you.
Say it is for you, great, fill your boots.
However perhaps it’s not, no worries, let go of that thought process and move on.
Seems simple enough, right?
If you’ve been toying with the idea or transitioning, do your research and perhaps give it a go, or don’t, it’s your choice after all.
