Maximizing Muscle Growth and Body Fat Loss: Eating Before a Workout

If you want to lose fat or add muscle (or both!), you know that your performance in the gym is one of the most important factors to consider. Therefore, this leads to the question of what you should and shouldn’t be eating before a workout and this is an important question for many reasons;

  • Your pre-workout meal will give you the energy to push further in the gym
  • Muscle breakdown can be reduced
  • Fatigue can be reduced with the right meals and supplements
  • Testosterone production can increase

Ultimately, this is only four of the main benefits and steps that lead to greater results. So, what should you consume in the hours leading up to an intense workout?

Nutrition – First and foremost, your pre-workout meal is important because the experts always note how fitness is more about food than exercise. For the best nutrient absorption and digestion, we recommend separating protein and carbs. When taken together, the two can be hard to digest, and you want the nutrients hitting your muscles while in the gym. With poor digestion, you don’t get this benefit, and you could also cause cannibalization within the body; this is where muscle tissue is broken down.

We recommend eating carbs first since these are easier to digest; around fifteen minutes later, you can consume your protein. In terms of ideas, we like fruit since the carbs (fructose) can be used almost immediately for energy rather than being stored which is what happens with many sources of carbohydrates. While most people choose a banana post workout, this is actually a bad idea because this is the time where you need to replenish glycogen storage.

Finally, for nutrition, we recommend adding salt to your food because sodium boasts electrolyte properties. Not only does this control the level of water in your body, but it’ll also regulate muscle/nerve functionality and blood volume. With electrolytes, you should receive an added boost while lifting weights and performing cardio work.

Supplements – In addition to your nutrition and pre-workout meals, we also recommend spending time considering supplements. Of course, these aren’t a necessity, and you’ll get along perfectly fine without them, but they might just provide the added boost you need.

Creatine-Monohydrate If you haven’t heard of this product previously, it combines three amino acids; glycine, methionine, and arginine. With these in your body, you’ll see numerous benefits from increased strength to improved high-intensity performance. Furthermore, creatine will aid the production of ATP, and this is the main energy molecule in our bodies. Considering creatine is affordable, this is a great place to start.

BCAAs Standing for Branched Chain Amino Acids, BCAAs is another product that combines three amino acids but this time valine, leucine, and isoleucine. By blocking serotonin in the brain, your brain experiences less fatigue, and you can stay focused in the gym. Additionally, muscle loss and muscle breakdown are reduced while protein synthesis is improved thanks to both anabolic and anti-catabolic properties. 

However, these benefits are overshadowed somewhat by the main advantage of BCAAs; stimulated insulin production. As the cells absorb amino acids more efficiently, this leads to a more successful and rewarding workout.

Beta Alanine Finally, the third supplement we suggest is one you aren’t likely to have been recommended before; beta alanine. As a non-essential amino acid, beta alanine can be found in the muscles, and it boosts muscle endurance as well as decreasing fatigue. Therefore, it provides a huge benefit when lifting weights in the gym.

Conclusion – Now, you should have everything you need for a successful meal before working out as well as the knowledge to pair this with useful supplements to see real results in your muscle growth and body fat loss goals!

You’re Doing Just Fine: Here are 10 Reminders for Self-Love

Love starts within…

To survive in a world that can be cruel love is an important emotion to understand. The happiest people of all are those who have mastered the love they have for themselves as well as for others. Today, we have ten reminders to keep you on track this week!

Bad Choices are Inevitable – No human on this planet has ever gone through life making all the right decisions; believe us. If you can’t accept this, you’ll never be able to show self-love. If you can accept this, you’ll learn from your shortcomings in order to make better ones in the future.

All Feelings are Valid – In the world right now, there are others better off as well as people worse off than your current position. Even so, this doesn’t make your feelings somehow invalid. When you experience pain, go through it without judgment and come out the other side without acting rashly.

We Can’t Read Minds – If anyone on this planet could read minds, they would be filling out stadiums each and every night. For some reason, we like to suggest what others are thinking before using this to criticize ourselves. Sadly, assumptions can ruin relationships (and self-love) so don’t let this happen.

Anger Always Runs Deeper – No matter what you might think, anger never just appears out of nowhere; it comes from a deeper emotion of pain or fear. To build on self-love, work on treating the root cause of the issue rather than acting on the anger. If you can understand your main concerns and issues, you understand yourself better for the future.

We’re All Unique – Have you ever met someone with whom you clicked instantly? With this in mind, why do we get so upset when the opposite happens (not getting on with somebody)? Remember, you won’t like everybody, and not everyone will like you. Once you realize this, you won’t have to try to change anything, but instead, you can focus on the positive relationships in your life.

Hope for the Best – For most of us, it’s completely natural to continually consider the worst-case scenario so why not flip this around? Of course, there’s nothing wrong with preparing for the worst, so you have a plan in place, but positivity will lead to a world of self-love and optimism.

Let Things Happen – Following on a similar theme, it’s ok to just let things happen rather than anticipating the reaction or analyzing each moment like basketball highlight show. Although it might be hard, you need to learn to be present in the moment because this shows respect and kindness towards yourself.

You Can’t Keep Running – No matter how many times you try to run away from things that hurt, it will always catch up with you. Whether it’s heartbreak or something else unpleasant, you can show yourself love by dealing with the issue head-on. Once you get over this hurdle of pain, the wound will start to heal.

‘No’ is a Word – In all the words in the dictionary, ‘no’ has to be amongst the most underused and for no good reason at all. If you’re to appreciate your own time and value your worth, you need to start saying this magical word more often. Remember, our time is limited on this planet so do things you will enjoy.

This is Your Story! – Finally, you must never forget that this is your story and only you can affect how people will tell it in the years to come!

HOW TO FIGHT DEPRESSION AND A LACK OF MOTIVATION!

Portrait of exhausted woman

Despite all the technology we’ve seen in recent years, there’s one thing we continue trying to understand; the human mind. Over the course of decades, we put our all into learning everything there is to know about ourselves and other people only to feel surprised when something unexpected happens.

For example, the stresses of life can sometimes get the better of us, and this leads to the death of creativity, productivity, and opportunities to meet up with loved ones and friends. If you can relate to any of this, you aren’t alone because millions feel demotivated or depressed every single day. With so many pressures in the world, there are numerous reasons one may feel depressed including financial worries, illness, work, failed relationships, or even extreme jealousy of others.

Areas of Depression and Demotivation

Unfortunately, dealing with the issue isn’t quite as easy as it sounds because demotivation and depression feed off each other and it eventually becomes a spiral of negativity. However, we have some of the very best tips below.

Professional Goals – According to a recent report, fewer than 25% of people in the world feel as though they’ve achieved professional goals. Considering our career takes up a huge part of our lives, we instantly feel like a failure when we aren’t successful in our jobs. Over time, we lose passion and energy for work, and we get stuck in an endless loop.

As simple as it sounds, you’re in charge of your life so change your job as soon as possible. Even if you start on a smaller wage, you need to be happy in life, so it makes sense to lose the job keeping you unhappy.

Societal Pressures – Every day, we try to live up to the expectations of society even though the bar seems obsessively high. If you keep dressing in a certain way, aim to earn a certain salary, or even just act in a certain way, you aren’t true to yourself. Instead, you need to be happy with who you are because the key factor that will earn the respect of others is actually self-respect.

Family Life – As well as putting you under pressure, your family are likely to compare you to ‘successful cousins’ or siblings, and this can be tough to take. Once again, you need to continue on your own path but just explain your goals to your family. If they can’t respect this, you simply rise above it and keep that self-respect.

Tips for Fighting Depression and Demotivation

Exercise – Although it’s been said millions of times, exercise really is a fantastic way to boost your physical and mental energy. By releasing endorphins, a positive feeling will spend throughout your body and mind. Often, when we say the word ‘exercise,’ people think of long hours on the treadmill, but this doesn’t have to be the case. Why don’t you find something you enjoy? For example, you could play badminton with friends or boxing to improve your stamina.

Read – As long as you choose a good book you can really sink your teeth into, reading is a great way to forget about life for a while and enter a fictional world.

Communication – Finally, talk about your feelings to other people. Although you’re probably shaking your head on this one already, you need to connect to those around you and talking about your feelings is the only way to do this. Once people see what’s happening from your perspective, they’ll be more understanding and supportive moving forward.

Remember, nobody in the world will ever have to spend as much time with you…than you. No matter what happens, you’re in charge, and you should always feel comfortable in your own skin!

Do You Feel Like a Winner? Here’s Why Most Don’t

Although it might not feel like it right now, you are the only one with enough control in your life to make a difference. If you aren’t winning right now, it normally comes from a lack of belief or control, but this is something we’re going to fix today. Below, we’ve listed eight key reasons why you aren’t winning and how to fix them!

Focusing on the Negatives – If you hold a dinner party and eight people had a great time while one didn’t enjoy themselves, which do you focus on? For most of us, we would dwell on the one person who didn’t have a good time, and this is because we tend to be perfectionists. Since this mindset can be quite damaging, we want you to start looking at the positives instead by pulling them into perspective. Sure, you might be able to learn from the negatives, but the positives should always be your motivation.

Wrong ‘Friends’ – For some reason, we get into the habit of spending time with people we don’t trust or even like. If you continue to spend time with people who bring you down, you’ll never be able to stand strong so cut them from your life. Sure, they might realize the error of their ways in the time to come but, for now, you should be surrounding yourself with people who support your journey.

Playing Poorly – If you have no goals and no purpose in life, you aren’t even playing to win. Whenever you have no plan or goals, you simply ride the waves that come your way without achieving any dreams that might be lying underneath. Why don’t you find your passion, set some goals, and really make a push for your dreams?

Lying to Yourself – If you cannot be honest with yourself, becoming a winner will be the hardest thing you’ll ever do. Instead of making excuses and blaming the circumstances, turn things in your favor and be honest with yourself. If you can account for it, you can control it.

Instant Rewards – Whenever you feel gratification for your intentions, you no longer require the gratification for completing the task, and this is a huge issue. Suddenly, you don’t put in the work because you feel as though you’ve had all that will come of it. If you want real results, you don’t need to tell the world where you go; just show them when you’re there.

Lacking the Follow Through – When you make decisions regarding your personal life or career, this is great, but you then need to see them through. If farmers decided to plant crops this year but didn’t actually work on them after planting, they would have nothing to show at the end. Although it might be hard work, you need to give your all to make your plans happen.

Subconscious – No matter how many positive thoughts you have, your subconscious slowly breaks these down with its own negative opinions. For example, you might have a dream to own a specific car. Suddenly, your subconscious says ‘I’ll never have the money.’. If your subconscious limits your dreams, you’ll never be the winner you desire.

Looking for Issues – Finally, another problem we see far too often is people looking for problems. Sadly, their mindset is so negative they wake up and look for the problems to come whether it’s the boss, broken car, or something simple like gone-off milk. Instead, you should be thinking the other way around; life is positive, and the negatives are short-lived experiences to help you grow!

HERE ARE THE MOST EFFICIENT WAYS TO BUILD CONFIDENCE!

Amazing ways of boosting self-confidence.

confidence

Truth be told, there is a clear difference between self-confidence and being scared. The two are opposite ends in the sense that the level of
confidence you have and display tells a lot about how far you can go in life. Real confidence helps fasten success. Confidence is built or developed by one’s self, although there are other factors beyond human control, in some circumstances that affect your level of confidence. That notwithstanding there are amazing ways humanly possible to boost one’s confidence and they are as follows.

Man giving expressions

Man giving expressions

Encourage yourself

Another great way of increasing your confidence level is gratitude to one’s self. Take out few moments of your free time to count your blessing, How successful you have been and beat your chest saying “well-done.” This will surely generate a positive vibe within you to encourage yourself to get to work.


Dress smart

A favorite saying goes thus” The way you dress, is the way you will be addressed” the kind of dress you put on has a way of making you feel good or bad. Therefore clothing’s determines your confidence level, how you interact with people and also how you carry yourself when you dress smart and look good, it makes you feel fantastic and totally and on top of your game using this to your advantage can be a real boost to your confidence.


Compliment/thumbs up

The internal most times controls the externals. The way we feel inside is what manifests outside. We display inform of behavior to others, If we think and act positively towards other people, play nice and not gossip or backbite or even pick nose in their offers is unnecessary. Finding the best of what is another and making good compliments about it will improve your confidence and make you work more on yourself.


Personal talks 

Motivational speeches are one of the fastest ways to boost confidence. Listening to motivational speeches especially one from yourself. Doing a little pep talk standing before your mirror stating your achievements, your goals, and strengths, as well as your weakness, can boost your confidence. This works every time.


Sit at first rows 

Research shows that people that sit at the front row in school, churches and meeting places are more confident over those that sit at back rows. Reason being that those that sit at the back don’t want to be noticed, But people with high morale and confidence sit at the front. Try sitting in the front row next time you look more confident that way and will concentrate well.


Be outspoken

People keep quite at group discussions and meetings because of what people might think or say about their opinions. They are afraid to let their voices be heard because others might think their ideas to be stupid. This is just human assumptions, but in reality, people are more accommodating and even eager to hear what you have to say about issues. Little efforts made towards being outspoken definitely have a way of boosting your confidence and make you look smart.


Think about others

Being selfish or self-centered brings down our confidence level how about when you think less of yourself and think of a way of helping and serving others to the best of your abilities. By making huge contributions towards making the world a better place, you will be building your confidence as well.


Stay fit

I will say that personal looks and appearance has up to 70% influence on an individual’s confidence level. Women who are obese or fat are generally known to be of low self-esteem although there might be exceptions. This is to say that physical appearance also affects confidence. To build your confidence you have to mind what you eat to stay healthy always. You are what you eat.


Sit properly

Just like the ways you walk tell people how confident you are, so also the way you sit does the same and have a way of boosting your confidence. Maintaining a good posture while sitting will surely improve your confidence. Make sure you sit properly and develop a good posture to help improve your confidence anywhere you go.


In conclusion, Rome was not built in a day, so also one’s confidence won’t just come that easy. Therefore, developing a habit of putting these things mentioned to practice is surely a way to go. Good luck!!

STARTING TODAY YOU NEED A ROUTINE

YOU NEED A POSITIVE DAILY ROUTINE IF YOU TRULY WANT TO BE EFFICIENT!

value

Having a routine simply means there are a series of activities you regularly carry out at the same time every day. Many people frown at the idea of having a routine because, depending on the type of activity, it can become boring in a short time.

Avoiding the consistency that makes a routine can make you lose some outstanding benefits. Ordering the pattern of your life according to a routine will effectively give you more time to spend on other exciting activities. You will also attain a high level of energy to go through each day, a good routine that is strictly adhered to will make your life better organized and stress-free.

When your life is ordered in accordance with a routine, you will find out that you have more control over the circumstances that determine your future. The benefit of living according to a good routine is worth making an effort to include simple and productive routines in your daily life. In the following part of this article, we will discuss some vital benefits of living like this.

 

Increased productive energy

happy1Do you remember when you first started learning how to use your favorite application? Now you are probably a master at using that application to accomplish great things effortlessly. This wouldn’t have been possible if you didn’t make it a routine to consistently practice until you became superb at it. This is simply how routines work; you will create a system where you carry out an action until you are super proficient at doing it.

You will have an extra mental productive energy to focus on achieving other tasks due to a routine you have benefited from. Once you become excellent at a task, you will need less mental energy to perform it subsequently.

 

A routine is good for your mental health

mental

The state of your mental health will be in a poor shape if you consistently struggle with stress and all the troubles of the day for a long time without any hope of relief. This would not be the case if you had clearly designed routines that will effectively create order in every part of your day.

Having a routine will let you know what to expect in the coming hours and what you must do to avoid any problems when that time comes. This will reduce stress and mental fatigue which can weigh down your mental state if nothing is done about it.

 

Organize your life

Even though routines might sound very monotonous, they can effectively bring a peaceful order into your life. One crucial factor that promotes success is a good order, without a good order, there will be chaos- an enemy of success.

When you adopt a routine, you will be effectively sharing your strengths to perform functions in a way that you will not get worn out. You can plan your day and even the entire week ahead; this gives you the leverage of setting goals that you already have an idea how to achieve. This makes life stress-free.

 

You can now actually have a leisure time

One common complaint many people make is that their lives are too busy to find any time during which they can rest or engage in fun activities. These people live through every day as it comes without any particular order and this is the reason why they suffer from the overwhelming cluster.

You can create as much time as you want when you are in control of every moment of your day. This is achievable when you live every day by the directions of a routine. You will find out that a lot of free time could be effortlessly created every day for leisure and relaxation. Productivity and efficiency are improved when you have enough time to play and rest.

 

Adequate sleep is possible

There are people that will argue that coping with the hassles of every day makes it impossible to get enough sleep at night. This is only as far as they know; we all need as much as seven hours of sleep every night to function properly during the day. Compromising sleeping hours will reduce efficiency at work and in your life. Working with a routine will give you the leverage of including a specific time for sleeping that will not be compromised because every activity has been allocated a specific time throughout the day and night. This way, you can enjoy an uninterrupted night sleep.

 

Avoid the negative effects of procrastination

Procrastination can cause a cluster of undone work to pile up on your desk. This can be avoided when you have a routine which specifically defines what should be done at every moment. When a task is due, you will perform it without delay because you need to strictly adhere to your routine to avoid missing the benefits. Tackling huge tasks will be easier when you have a routine to help you divide the tasks into smaller parts which can easily be done.

 

Better focus on your goals

Weekly goals and objectives

Setting your goals is easy, but going through the needed actions through which they will be achieved is the hard part. You might not find it easy to adapt to a routine especially a rigid one at first, but with time, you will become used to living your life this way. A routine will help you remain focused on your goals because you will attain a high level of discipline as you meet up with the requirements of the routine daily.

The best part about adopting a routine is that when you start enjoying the rewards of this routine, you will be inspired to continue. Coping with waking up early and eating healthy all the time will become easier.

 

Gaining control over bad habits

The biggest challenge anybody will every experience during the process of adapting to a routine is overcoming bad habits. You might have been so used to these bad habits that changing them in line with the new routine might seem like a daunting task, but it is possible.

A regular routine would soon get you ahead of these bad habits especially when you start experiencing a feeling of power over these habits. You will realize they can be changed.

If you wish to become more proactive, energized, healthy and productive, you need to get into a regular routine through which these features will be achievable. The secret is to start with it and remain committed even in the face of challenges. If you ever find yourself breaking the rules, don’t give up. All you need to do is review the reasons behind any breach and find ways to prevent them from happening in future.

MUST READ!

7 HABITS THAT ARE DRAINING YOUR ENERGY!

What can be done to maintain steady Mental Energy? fix these habits ASAP! 

Two major factors that contribute to a successful and productive day are time management and your mental energy. Many people strive to achieve their goals by managing their time as best as they can but what about the mental energy you need to run with during the day? We must accept that every morning we get a dose of mental energy that might not be sufficient to pull us through each day if it is not properly managed. This is why many people feel mentally drained even before it is 10 a.m. in the morning.

You are experiencing this mental drain because of certain bad habits that set in very early in the morning and cause you to have a mental drain before noon, this is bad for you. So what are these bad habits? We have listed eleven of them below. You should know which of these apply to you and how you can start eliminating their effects on your life.

1.Lack of sleeplack of sleepx

There is no better way to replenish your mental energy than sleeping. Unfortunately, many people have compromised their sleeping time to carry out other activities. You will not be missing out on much if you plan your time well to include an adequate time to sleep.

Lack of sufficient sleep will compromise your mental energy reserves. You need to sleep well to avoid being slow mentally.

Tip- Your body will always give you signals when it needs sleep. Never eliminate these signs by taking caffeinated drinks, just go to sleep. Find out how many hours of night sleep you need to feel energized in the morning and stick with it every night.

 

2. Taking on too many tasks at the same time

multi-tasking

Yes we need to work and we also have a life to live but fitting everything in all at once can be overbearing on your mental energy. Many people have to contend with strenuous demands of work life balance, but this can be simplified. Understand your capacities and only agree to do what you can effectively handle at every time. What matters is whatever you do it very well rather than trying to accomplish numerous tasks averagely.

Tip- Consistently practice the habit of prioritizing your activities and you will definitely get better at it. Allow for some free time every day to accommodate any unforeseen tasks that might suddenly come up on your to-do list.

 

3. Habitual Procrastination

proceastinationProcrastination takes its toll on your mental energy. It is easy to put off performing some tasks because you don’t feel inspired at that moment. This can easily lead to a pile up of work to do. Handling this will require a lot of mental energy because your workload has been doubled.

Tip- you can fight procrastination by adopting the two-minute rule. This means if a task will take you two minutes to accomplish, just do it quickly and perfectly then move on to the next task. Two-minute breaks in the middle of a task have been proven to be great for the mind without you getting distracted.

 

4.  Striving for unrealistic perfection

There are times when you have done your very best but you fail to realize it. This means you keep trying to make your work better, spending many hours when you have actually reached your highest point of productivity. The pressure put on your mind to exceed your actual capacity can become very overbearing.

It is important to know your work, understanding when you have put in your very best and moving on is important to save up the amount of mental energy required for that task. Don’t push yourself too hard except you know more can realistically be achieved.

Tip- focus your mental energy on developing a good work. Once you have met the basic requirements for a task, you can attempt to improve it but don’t put pressure on yourself looking for errors that are not there.

 

5. Poor eating habits

bad eating habits

There have been many links connecting your mental energy to your diet. Foods that have high sugar contents should be avoided because they can give you a surge of mental energy which will be immediately followed by a decline once the sugar levels drop. You need foods that can sustain your mental energy all through the day,

Eating foods like whole grains, vegetables, fruits and healthy sources of protein will give your body enough energy to sustain your mental energy while you go about your daily activities.

Tip- Adopt a healthy diet. Your diet should include foods like nuts, vegetables, seeds, fish, berries and other foods that have been proven to have the ability to boost brain power. Please avoid caffeine as much as you can.

 

6. Starting without a plan

Marketing plan

Starting without a plan can lead to mental drain because you will need to put in more effort to make a decision, and it takes a lot of effort to make decisions. The absence of a good plan can leave you mentally stranded and this will lead to a waste of time.

We have seen how great men have avoided this bad habit; they have simplified their daily activities by reducing the activities that ask their minds early in the morning. Many successful men like Mark Zuckerberg, Steve Jobs limited their wardrobe to the dressing in a similar way every day. I can bet that it takes them a few minutes to get dressed. Simple decisions like eating a regular breakfast or establishing a simple routine will allow you to have more mental energy which can be focused on other things.

This is worth considering, while you should find out what works for you.

Tip: start planning the events of the next day from today. It might not work out the way you have planned but you will have a plan and a direction. Changes can be easily addressed as the day goes by.

 

7. Neglecting your hobbies

hobbies

Engaging in your hobbies regularly is an excellent way to keep up your mental energy. Doing what makes you happy will put you in a better frame of mind to focus on your responsibilities. As you plan your day, include some leisure time to engage in activities that make you happy.

Tip- Find out those hobbies that make you really happy. Some people like to skip just before meals or play some video games. Others might love to read a good book in the evenings. Always make time to do things you love.

 

What can you do to sustain your mental energy?

Those people who are able to smile at the end of every day have been successfully able to manage their mental energy all through the day. They have mastered this by adopting good habits that prevent mental energy drain.

In reality, there are many ways our mental energies can get compromised. We are constantly faced with responsibilities, the need to make decisions and numerous errands to run. The good news is that there are very many ways to effectively manage your mental energy. Find out which of these methods works best for you and adopt it. You will become a happier and more productive person in a very short time.
