Because training frequency depends so much on your goals, I’m going to split this up by the three main goals people ask me about: fat loss, muscle gain and endurance.
Squat til you puke, no pain no gain, sore not sorry the only bad workout you had was the one you didn’t do. Sounds awful, right?
Nutrition is the number one sticking point for most people. When to eat, what to eat, what not to eat and how much to eat.
Correct nutrition is crucial when it comes to getting shape. Balancing your energy intake and expenditure correctly will be the difference between success and failure.
Hypertrophy is an increase in the size of cells in your body. In the fitness world, when we talk about hypertrophy, we’re talking about muscle hypertrophy, or getting bigger muscles.
If you are a vegetarian and looking to get a good amount of protein in your diet, you’ve probably heard of a few popular foods for veggies, like chickpeas or eggs.
People say it means you burn more fat. What does the research say?
Do all of your sets and reps need to be in the “hypertrophy” rep ranges for maximum muscle gain or muscle maintenance?
More training doesn’t equal more fat loss. Lots of training doesn’t guarantee any fat loss whatsoever.
