The Keys to Getting Lean!

You find many people today thinking that if they go to the gym 4-6 days a week and spend multiple hours in there that they are going to see these amazing results.

What people don't understand is that, in my opinion, what you eat brings you at least 80% of your progress.
So if you go in the gym and bust your butt for an hour or 2 and then you don't eat something healthy or you go out and eat garbage, then you have just wasted that time in the gym.

Many people also think it is wise to drop body fat by not eating more than 2 times a day , and this is a terrible decision that is made.
One must eat within 20 minutes of waking and then eat every 2.5-3 hours. By doing this, you keep your body anabolic, which means it is in a constant muscle building state, the opposite of this would be a term called catabolic and this is what you do not want. When you go catabolic, your body starts to fuel itself off of muscle rather than fat.
If you do as stated above and eat within 20 minutes of waking and then every 2.5-3 hours, you are going to cause a great spike in metabolism over the next few weeks. Eating multiple times is what causes this spike because your body knows exactly when you are going to be feeding it, when it knows this, it will not hesitate to start burning off body fat.
The greatest way to eat when looking to strip body fat is by taking in high protein foods, lower carbed foods and then moderate healthy fats.
Staying away from starches is a really important thing because , to me, this is like taking in straight sugar.
Some things to stay away from are things like white potatoes, white rice, beer, and corn is a really bad thing to consume when looking to strip body fat.
A person should consume these high protein foods, males trying to take in 40 grams of protein each meal and females aiming for 20-25 per meal. Good options are as follows: White fish, chicken breast, lean ground turkey,egg whites , almonds and of course protein powder.
Taking in healthy fats in moderation will actually help your body cut more fat. Some healthy things to take in would be the following: Almonds, cooking with olive or coconut oil, using olive oil on salad.
Fish oil tablets, flax seed tabs are also great sources of healthy fats.

Those are a few tips to help you get started on your journey to a leaner, happier you.
Always remember, eating is the key to all progression.

Back Training Tips : Part II

Hey guys,
Many of you know I have been doing some "How To" Training Tips.
Here is Part II of Back training. I thought this may be more important than getting to shoulders right now.

Ladies, I did not mention where to grip the bar on pulldowns. Simply move your hands a little bit past shoulder width, that will be fine. Do not go any closer than that.

Thank you guys for watching.
