1. Peace of Mind
3. Time management
5. Be the best version of you
Since everyone begins at different starting points with the body sculpting process, it could take more or less time. However, the one thing to keep in mind is the importance of deadlines and their impact on reaching goals.
Depending on how fast you would like to see results, there are many timelines to choose from, but make sure to stay persistent. For example, six months is an effective amount of time to see amazing results, so set the deadline and don’t give up until you reach the end of the six months. Motivation is the essential to sticking to your deadline but forming a habit is longer-lasting! With that being said, maybe setting up some kind of reward system each month might be the way to get there. Maybe you’re the kind of person who needs to have a picture of a person on the bathroom mirror with the same body type you’re trying to achieve. Whatever you need to do to motivate yourself, make sure you do it because that is what’s going to pull you out of bed in the morning and make you form this positive habit.
So, let’s say you’re to the point of seeing results and losing weight. At this point, many people make the mistake of switching from building muscle and lifting heavy weights to lifting five pound pink dumbbells for fifty repetitions. It is important to understand to not do this now before you throw all of your hard work away.
Your number one priority should be to maintain your strength while trying to lose weight. Don’t let all of your hard work of pushing 100 pound dumbbells turn into a 10 pound weight lifting session. If you let yourself go backwards, you’ll soon discover that you’re losing strength, losing muscle and not seeing the results you desire. I’m not saying you need to max out on every set, but the weight needs to be challenging for you.
Excessive dieting might be the right way to go if you want to shred some serious weight-loss, but in general, cutting down to 500 calories per day in hopes of getting muscular faster doesn’t work.
If you cut your calories down too fast, you risk losing muscle, which can lead to throwing off your metabolism and losing hard earned strength at the gym.
Here’s a quick tip that goes a long way: It’s much better to play the long game, which is simply aiming to only lose about 1-2 pounds per week. As you get closer to your goal weight, you should only aim to lose about 1 pound per week.
When men want to bulk up, they think they need to eat a lot more food and protein, which is generally true, but where most men go wrong is consuming more than they actually need. I am not saying you need to eat 5,000 calories per day to gain weight, but you definitely need to be conscious of how much is going into your mouth. You can make incremental adjustments by adding 200 calories per week if you aren’t seeing results.
You need to train for your goal. Strong-mans train to get as strong as possible at a variety of exercises. Their priority is to become extremely strong without worrying about how much weight they gain, which is a completely unique goal. Unless you want to become one of them, stick with your individual goal.
Then there are body builders, who train to get as big and lean as humanly possible with or without drugs. Again, this is a very specific goal with a completely different set of training and planning. If you’re training to look like Paul Texiera then I’m assuming you’re training mainly for aesthetics with the hope of becoming leaner and more muscular.
If this sounds like you, then you need to focus on building muscle properly. Don’t keep focusing on getting bulky legs when the goal is to get ripped quads. It all depends on what your goal is and taking the proper steps to achieve the body type of your dreams.
According to me, ADAMwontLOSE, I feel these are 5 key traits that lead to success. There might be many more other characteristics but I feel whether you are seeking business, academic, relationship, self-development success you will need the 5 following traits to succeed.
Courage, something all people must have. Courage is that ability to take leap of faith against your fears. It’s the ability to confront danger, pain and agony. This is an attribute that can be found in top performing athletes and many successful people. These people are motivated towards their goal in life and have no fear of loss. This courage makes a person want to live without having the concerns of falling back. Athletes can climb dangerous mountains, businessmen can can take risky investments all because they are courageous.
Having the knowledge of what your heart desires and then having the determination to reach that desire is called being laser focused about it. People with a strong heart and intellectual understanding of the world can have this vision. The people in the profession of sports or something that includes facing agonizing circumstances to reach that one required goal have this focus. You can see the laser-focusness in athletes when competiting at an exceptional high level. Being focused is just not enough you have to be LASER FOCUSED.
Hard work has always been the key to success. All athletes strive and work on their body as well as daily routine to reach an optimal lifestyle in accordance with their profession. Working hard is not an easy task and therefore can only be accomplished by the people who have a burning desire to succeed in their minds and hearts.
No man is an island. You certainly need to have what I like to call ‘people-skills’ in order to get a head and achieve success. You’re day to day interactions with others determines your progress. You’re going to need to talk, collaborate, partner, and just talk to the right people in order to get to your destination. Do not waste anothter minute thinking you will make it all alone. Start being a team player – today!
Ever encountered problems that you left hanging despite their answers present? This is not the habit of a motivated person! Every person who has the determination and motivation to live on to his dreams and grasp that once in a life time chance is a problem solver. Every athlete has the ability to solve his problems and lacking in the field to outrun the opponents.

3 Misleading Health Myths
Convenient or comforting health myths are easy to treat as fact. With obesity becoming a serious issue, it’s important to tell the difference when it comes to the common and popular weight loss methods. Let’s have a quick look at some of the more appealing myths, while also addressing the truth.
1. Myth: Training everyday gets you results
Logic: Consistency breeds results; however the body needs rest too. High intensity training is actually stressful to the body and releases cortisol (the ‘bad stress’ hormone). Diminishing cortisol levels comes through rest and recuperation.
Fact: Consistent training produces results, but it requires moderation and periods of recovery to avoid overstressing the body.
2. Myth: Fad diets are the sure way to lose weight fast
Logic: Fad diets can cause impressive short-term results, but many are not meant for long-term benefit or use. Most have dieters consuming less than 1000 calories per day—enough to cause health complications if done over long periods of time. When you stop following the diet—which you inevitably will—your body will overcompensate and start hoarding calories and fat to recover from what it interprets as a recent famine. This will result in excess weight /gain/, and the infamous yo-yo dieting.
Fact: Fad diets, if they work at all, only have short term benefits that can actually cause weight gain in the long term.
3.Myth: You can sweat it away no matter what you eat.
Logic: It is true that you can lose calories by exercise. However, depending completely on exercises for losing weight is like saying, “I’ll drive my car slow today so I won’t have to put gas”. It just doesn’t work like that.
While exercise can overcome an unhealthy diet, the amount of effort required is either out of reach for most people or enough to impair the ability to further reduce weight rather than maintain current levels. A balanced diet is important for achieving weight-loss success.
Fact: You cannot out train a bad eating diet.
