Turn Your Motivation Into Money

2017 is here with a bang, and for most, resolutions have already been broken. There isn’t a right or wrong time to start to put more into yourself, though – you don’t necessarily have to wait for January 1st to start your journey, nor do you have to put it off until the next year because you missed that deadline.

 

This is a time to be frugal in what you do, but put money into the things that matter. Sounds like a paradox? You’d be correct in thinking so. However, investing in your image rather than spending money on pints in the pub makes for better in the long-term. Beer makes you confident for a night; assurance in yourself will make you confident for a lifetime.

 

So where is this all going, exactly? Well, an initial outlay into something that requires your time rather than your pennies is always going to be worthwhile – for you. It will provide you with focus, something that is being lost nowadays due to the fact that money can buy you pretty much anything. It’s not a bad thing that money can get you places; it works a lot of the time. But this is about doing something for you and you only, and getting the motivation required to do so.

 

Start by going running – outside. It is free and it works. If this doesn’t float your boat, search for “fitness gym near me”, then see it as money well-spent into something that matters. Running is beneficial not just for weight loss, but for formulating a routine, helping you to sleep better and relieving you of stress. Put simply: running is healthy for you. It doesn’t matter how fast or slow you go, or even if you go off track; what matters is that you’re on the right track to being a better you throughout.

With the running comes the drinking. There are so many options to choose from with a bountiful selection of sports drinks out there, but you can’t beat plain old water. We all know about the many benefits there are to drinking it, so why don’t we do it more?  Make it your mission to indulge in as much of the good stuff as you can (your body will definitely thank you for it after exercise), and watch it start to work its magic on your skin, energy levels and general wellbeing.

 

Here’s where the money comes into it. Doing a lot of free stuff and drinking a lot of free things means more money left over to play with. This is where it can be put wisely it into things that matter – whether this is the bank, an ISA, a savings bond or something that is completely off finance and will make you feel top dollar. A new haircut will make you feel fresh, a cut-throat shave does wonders for your self-confidence if that’s your sort of thing, and a splurge on some new trainers will be an asset in the long run (excuse the pun).

Money can get you places, but it’s always best to remember that motivation will get you further. If you’re feeling good about yourself along the way, what’s not to lose?

 

 

Ssshh! The Big Health Issues Men Won’t Talk About

It’s fair to say that talking about their problems isn’t something that comes easily to the male of the species. We learn that illness or health issues are weaknesses, and it’s unmanly to complain about them from an early age. Man-flu aside, of course. But this behaviour ends up being destructive.

While you are young and healthy, sure, you might never need to see a doctor. But when you hit middle age, your body becomes a lot more vulnerable to illness, weight gain, and a whole host of other problems. And, of course, at this point, you have already learned not to talk – which means conditions go undiagnosed.

The truth is, it’s far better to discuss your problems with a doctor or family member. Your life will be longer because of it – and far happier. Here are a few of the issues you should never be embarrassed or ashamed of discussing.

Mental health

If there is one problem that men are terrible at talking about, it’s mental health. Things like depression don’t affect real guys, right? Well, around four out of every ten men in the UK that suffer from depression refuse to talk to anyone – whether a family member of professional. Given that nearly eight out of ten men have suffered from anxiety, stress or depression, that is a lot of damaged minds we are talking about. And suicide is the biggest killer of men around the world. As a fitness lover, I’m well aware of the ability of exercise to improve your mental health and calm anxiety. But it won’t work on its own to fix major episodes, which is something I think men struggle with. So, if you are feeling down, depressed, or anxious – please reach out to someone. Men are under an increasing amount of pressure these days, and you need that space to talk.

Injuries

I know plenty of guys who suffer from injury yet still refuse to go to the doctor. They rest up for a couple of weeks, and then start training again without any treatment. The result? Even worse injuries and the cycle begins again. It’s another example of men believing that admitting you have hurt is a sign of weakness. And it’s utterly ridiculous. First of all, there is no point of training until you have proper treatment on your injury. You will never get the right form back, and you run the risk of injuring other parts of your body, too. Second of all, as you get older, you will suffer more injuries. If you want to keep fit, healthy and active, you need to limit the length of time you spend recovering, And the only way to do that safely is to get the correct treatment and solve your problems one at a time.

 

The bedroom

Sexual issues are another big no-go area for men. Again, we learn all this macho stuff about sex as kids, and it leaves its mark. Everyone needs to be the alpha male, with the longest staying power and the largest number of notches on the bedpost. But this kind of behaviour leaves a big impact in later life. The guy you knew in your early twenties who slept with hundreds of women is probably an incubator for dozens of STDs right now. The staying power you had in your teens is going to be significantly reduced by the time you are fifty. And even if you have problems in this particular area, you can get help by talking about it with your doctor. You can take Priligy tablets for premature ejaculation, for example, or do some exercises to improve things. Finally, make sure you are checking for testicular and prostate cancers. They are one of the biggest killers, and early intervention can often lead to a better outcome.

 

medicine-thermometer-tablets-pills

Illness

Men die earlier than women – that’s a fact. Men also suffer from late stage diagnosis a lot more than women. There is a link between these two statistics. When the majority of women feel ill, they go and see their doctor. When men feel sick, they don’t. If they do, it’s usually due to their wife arranging an appointment. It’s no surprise then, that by the time men are diagnosed with anything the condition has progressed much further. And, the result is often less than positive. So, all you guys out there, going to the doctor is not a sign of weakness. It’s just like putting your car in for its MOT. Or oiling your chainsaw. Or any other manly maintenance problem you can think of. Book your appointment tomorrow and it might just save your life.

 

 

A 6 Step Plan to Hitting Your Weight Loss Goals

January is the month in which many of us try to shed the pounds. So, if you’re already feeling tempted to give up, here’s how to stick at it and hit your weight loss goals.

 

  1. Recognise Your Achievements

When people are trying to lose weight, they tend to be very harsh on themselves. Make sure you don’t fall into this trap because it can damage your morale and cause you to fail. When you lose some weight or you do well on a particular week, make sure you recognise what you’re doing well. Being harsh on yourself the whole time will not help you reach the goals that you’ve set for yourself.

 

  1. Assess Your Portion Sizes

Eating portions that are far bigger than they need to be is something many of us do without even realising. We tend to just pile the food on the plate until it looks about the right size to fend off the hunger. This is not the most scientific of approaches to portion control though. It’s better if you take the time to weigh out the food you are going to eat and be aware of how many calories it contains.

Portion_of_seafood_paella_on_plate

 

 

  1. Find a Weight Loss Partner

Finding a partner is a great way to keep yourself going when times are tough. When you are alone on your weight loss journey, it is easy to give up. When you are on the journey with another person, there is some pressure on you to keep going for their sake. It also adds a degree of competition to the proceedings. You will be competing with one another to see who can hit their goals first.

 

  1. Remove Temptations

As Oscar Wilde put it, we can resist anything but temptation. This is a problem when you’re trying to improve your fitness and lose weight though! It could be the temptation to pick up a takeaway rather than cook a healthy meal or the temptation to snack on chocolate biscuits. These are the kinds of temptations that can completely derail your hopes of losing weight and getting fit. So, do everything you can to remove these temptations from your environment.

 

  1. Invest in Equipment

Getting fit is made a lot easier if you have the right equipment in place to make it happen. It could be a new pair of running shoes or you might be tempted by ones of those home treadmills. By investing in the right equipment, you will be more likely to stick to your weight loss plan. You’ll be able to exercise whenever you want without any excuses for not doing so. And because you’ve spent cash on these things, you’ll want to get your money’s worth.

 

  1. Motivate Yourself Daily

Motivation plays a huge role when it comes to losing weight. If you don’t have that motivation, you can easily lose interest and question why you’re even bothering to lose weight in the first place. We all know how easy it can be to give into the temptation to quit when we’re trying to do something that requires lots of effort. And there is definitely a lot of effort that has to go into losing weight and getting fit.

5 Fabulous Ways To Getting Fitter

Most of us would love to be fitter than we are. We want to be stronger, faster and have more stamina. Becoming more flexible and having the energy to keep going through the toughest of days is certainly something I’m keen for!

The trouble is, there are so many barriers to fitness. Time is a big factor for me. I never have enough of it. Energy to get up and move is another barrier to overcome. And excess weight gets in the way of us moving the way we want to comfortably too. Here are my top 5 ways to get fitter for this season:

 

1. Boot Camp – If you know you’re going to hate getting started so much you might give up, then head to boot camp. You can click here for a range of different options. Boot camp sets up exercises that will improve your strength, stamina and speed. The best thing is the intensity. Commit a weekend, or even a week to it to give you the best start you need for getting fit again.

2. Running – Lots of people are making the most of the drier weather and heading out to pound the streets. It’s free, and it’s open twenty-four hours a day. There is nobody there to judge you or stare at your wobbly bits either. But do invest in a good quality pair of running shoes. An early injury or strain could put you off forever. Start with intervals and gradually build up your distance. Three times a week is plenty.

 

3. Yoga – Yoga may seem like gentle stretching, but it can improve your flexibility and stamina significantly. Best of all, it can provide really good energy boosts just when you need it. Yoga is great on its own but enhances your performance across all other activities and sports too. Head to your local Yoga class a couple of times a week to see rapid improvements.

4. Diet – Your diet and water intake are key to the success of any fitness programme. Your diet needs to provide you with all the energy you need to get started and keep going. Fresh produce is the easiest to digest, meaning it’s nutritional benefits can be felt the quickest. Eat a varied diet that keeps refined sugars and artificial sweeteners to a minimum as per my 80/20 rule. This can help you to slim down quickly, making exercise even easier.

5. Stop Driving – Your lifestyle could be slowing down your progress. Walk twice a day for half an hour to see improvements to your energy levels and your sleep quality. It burns off calories to help with weight loss and increases your fitness in a gentle way. Give up car journeys of less than two miles. Why not restrict TV viewing to one hour a day and get moving with housework or gardening?

 

We can all be fitter than we are with just a few simple changes. Of course, sometimes we need a kick start to get us going. See what you can do to day to improve your fitness for life.

 

 

How To Get More From Your Workouts

weights-664766_1280

Even if your workouts are primarily focused on staying healthy, we all want to get the best results from our activities. We’re all guilty of a little narcissism, and a better body image is one of the best ways to feed it.

If nothing else, getting more from workouts will allow you to push your level of performance to the next stage. Growth, whether physically or mentally, is important to us all. Continuing yours with improved results is a must.

Here are four simple tips to ensure you reach your full potential. Embrace them now, and you’ll never look back.

 

Mix It Up

One of the main reasons that many gym-goers only see limited results is that their bodies have adapted to their workouts. Switching to different training programs could be the key to reaching your full potential.

It’s accepted that high-intensity interval training programs are the best way to kick your body into overdrive. Meanwhile, you could try your hand at various sports to work different muscle groups each day.

Variety is the spice of life. If nothing else, it should make physical activity more fun. In turn, this will give you a much better chance of sticking at it.

 

Prepare For Workout

The quality of your workout can be impacted long before you enter the gym. It’s imperative that the hours leading up to it are positive.

There are many factors to consider during your preparations. Getting these steps right will put you in a better position to get the most from your workouts. Quite frankly, you owe it to yourself to do this. After all, what’s the point in spending time and energy in the gym if it isn’t being used effectively?

Moreover, getting into good habits should make a positive impression on other areas of your life too.

Improve Nutrition

Getting the most from your gym time is only part of the battle. To get the best results, it’s vital that your exercise program is backed up with the right nutrition.

Staying hydrated is crucial, and you should be drinking well over the guided 2litres to compensate for water lost during workouts. Meanwhile, natural protein powder can give your body the nutrients it needs to fulfil its potential.

Exercise and diet go hand in hand. There’s no point in doing one without the other, so make sure yours are on point.

 

Rest

After a workout, your body needs time to recuperate. Otherwise, you will be limiting the progress it makes. Besides, good rest will leave you poised for tomorrow.

Professional athletes often use ice baths to aid recovery. You can use a cold shower. More importantly, though, you must take the necessary precautions to ensure that you get a good night’s sleep. Missing out on just one hour could seriously harm your gains, as well as your general alertness and well-being.

It’s unlikely that many of you need an excuse to spend more time snoozing. But your bid for better results does rely heavily on the resting periods. Don’t miss out.

 

6 Cheap Ways to Keep Fit

Expensive gym membership. Expensive sports equipment. Lack of time. Lack of motivation. What is your excuse for not keeping fit? If you care about your health, stop making excuses! Exercise needn’t cost a penny. And even a few extra steps a day will go a long way to making your look, and feel, better.

Running

A sprint across open parkland. Or a gentle jog around the local streets. Running is a free leisure pursuit to get you fit. Invest in a good pair of running shoes like Asics Runners and you’re ready for the starting pistol. Join your local running club. Share your new pastime with others to aid motivation.

Cycling

Bradley Wiggins’ victory ignited a cycling frenzy across the nation. So dust off that bike in the garage and get pedaling!

New bikes aren’t cheap. But there are plenty of other options if your budget is tight. Have a look online for a second-hand one. Or contemplate bike hire instead. City centres have these dotted around to help visitors explore the sites at speed. Or local country parks often hire them out too.

Swimming

Swimming works all your muscles and provides a hearty workout. If you live near to the coast, swimming is a free activity. Hit the beach in the summertime when the water is inviting. In the winter, join your local swimming baths to do a few lengths indoors. Swimming in the sea or lakes is a dangerous endeavour for the uninitiated. Take care if you choose to seek a natural water source for your sport.

Skipping

That’s for little girls, right? Wrong! Boxers use skipping as part of their training regime. It’s a great way to keep fit. For a small initial outlay, you will see a great return in terms of fitness levels. Increase your repetitions and speed as your fitness increases. Be inventive and use different skipping techniques to work those muscles and get the blood flowing.

 

file000449393781

Walking

Walking is free. Simple. So why don’t more of us capitalise on this? With public footpaths stretching miles and miles across towns, cities and villages, there is no excuse. Get hold of a pedometer to get a true account of just how many steps you are taking.  Walking is easy to introduce as part of your daily routine. So there is no excuse to sit idle!

 

14097123567ycj1

Hiking

Hiking takes endurance and stamina. It requires a good level of fitness too. So don’t jump into it before your body, and mind, are fully prepared. When you feel ready, up your game from easy walking to hiking or fell walking instead. Walking up steep inclines and on uneven ground tests different muscle groups than a stroll in the park. It also necessitates extra support equipment such as sturdy walking boots and walking poles. Walking tricky routes requires a sensible head and respect for the surroundings. Go prepared and enjoy the beauty of Britain’s peaks.

 

Don’t run before you can walk. Build up your fitness levels gradually until exercise becomes a pleasure rather than a chore.

The Truth behind Building Muscle – by Mathews McGarry

2651904068_17e189d741_b

The truth behind muscle building

In order to stay in shape, it is recommended that you train every once in a while, mind what you eat and lead a healthy lifestyle in general. Still, if you want to bulk up and build some muscles there is a lot more to it than that. Some say that muscle building is a sport while there are others who claim it is no less than art. When you come to think about it, what you actually do here is sculpt your body as if it was a piece of marble in order to achieve the form of an Olympian. Unfortunately there are a lot of urban legends and myths about muscle building out there. For those willing and ready to embark on this endeavor here are some simple truths about muscle building.

 

Start slow

The most common rookie mistake when it comes to muscle building is digging right into the most rigorous of training right away. Once you first step into the gym, your body will need some time to get accustomed to the nature of these new exercises. This is why you should use the first one or two months for some light exercises that will serve as a foundation for any later training regime. The first few weeks are crucial, since with difficult training you can get burned out and a bit of easier training might bore you. It is however essential that you remember just one thing: the effort of molding your body is not a race, it is a marathon.

 

More strength, more muscle

The truth is that exercises that boost strength greatly differ from those that are done solely for looks. However this is not always so. Although this is not something everyone is willing to admit, there are a lot of guys out there relying on steroids and other muscle building hormones. Because of this, their training will greatly differ from yours. Just remember one thing: for you as a drug-free lifter there is one golden rule – more strength will get you more muscles. Try to enhance your general strength first and the long term results will turn out to be more than satisfying for both your looks and your health.

 

Be careful what you eat

When it comes to your eating habits, this is a double-edged sword. A well balanced and carefully organized diet can do wonders for your muscles. However, eating fatty food may have an adverse effect. A recent study conducted by Matt Hulver and other Virginia Tech researchers discovered that eating unhealthy food for just five days you can change the way your muscles process nutrients. This can be extremely harmful for your organism so make sure you don’t allow it to happen. It is often the best to ask for professional help, so visit a nutritionist and have him compose a proper holistic diet that will help you gain some muscle.

 

Proper supplementation

The fact that you won’t resort to muscle building hormones is an admirable thing indeed, however this does not mean that you are completely on your own. Proper supplementation may help you get your results quicker and be more content with them in a completely natural way. For example, whey protein powder is a great thing to consume before training and it is great if you want to burn fat, enhance muscle development and sate your hunger. If you are unsure about what to eat, which supplements to take, etc, you can always consult a personal fitness trainer, who will help you align your goals with your diet.

 

Make sure to take a day off

Regardless of how impatient you may be to get the results that you need, it is imperative that you rest properly after each and every training. By not letting your muscles rest after the training you will actually slow down their advancement. You should never skip your training but it is also paramount that you never skip your rest day either.

As you can see, there is much more to muscle building than simply lifting weights. Doing exercises properly is often more important than doing them with large weights and rest can sometimes be as important as the training itself. Start slow, build strength, eat properly and never be afraid to turn to supplementation for help. Most importantly, remember to arm yourself with patience since everything that is worth in life takes time.

Simple Things You Should Do to Improve Your Body

 

Are you looking for simple ways to improve your body? Whether you want to change how it looks or improve its health, here are some ideas to help you out.

 

Sleep More

Sleep is more important than most people realise. Your brain is active during the night; it’s processing information and preparing for the next day. A good night’s sleep will help your memory and your ability to learn new things. Sleep will also help your physical health. It has been found that sleep helps to repair the body, especially the heart and blood vessels. This means that prolonged periods of sleep deficiency are put at a greater risk of suffering a heart attack or stroke. So, make sure your get between 7 and 9 hours sleep.

 

Get the Scent Right

Improving your body isn’t all about changing how it looks and performs. It’s also about getting the scent right. Of course, making your body look great is vital. But it can be made even better if your scent is right as well. Many of the most popular synthetic scents for men now contain pheromones. These are believed to attract the opposite sex more, so it could be worth giving them a try. If you want to find out all about pheromones and colognes and how they can help you, you should visit BestSolutionsforMen.com today.

 

Drink More Water

Drinking water is something that everyone needs to do if they’re going to stay healthy. You put your body at huge risk if you allow yourself to become dehydrated. This is especially true if you work out a lot because you’ll be sweating. And when you sweat a lot, you need to replace the fluids you’re losing. You shouldn’t go to the gym without a big bottle of water to drink before during and after your big workout. When you become dehydrated, your performance and attention will drop, so don’t let it happen.

thirsty-man-937395_640

 

Warm Up Before Working Out

We all need to work out if we want to keep our bodies in good shape, but are you warming up properly before you work out? It might seem like a bit of a pain to have to deal with, but it is very important. When you fail to warm up properly, you put your body at risk of injury. And that’s never a good thing for fitness freaks. If you get injured, you’ll end up spending a spell on the sidelines and however much you want to get back in the gym, you won’t be able to.

 

Wear Flattering Clothes
Your clothes say a lot about you. This is what people will look at and see when they meet you for the first time. That’s why it’s so important to wear the clothes that are flattering for you. Pick clothes that fit properly and suit your style. If you’re not sure what you’re doing, you should read some online fashion guides and find out how to pick clothes that are good for your body type.

Want To Reach The Best Shape Of Your Life In 2016?

The year might not be over yet, but I bet there are millions of blokes out there that are already thinking about how they can improve their lives in 2016. In most cases, getting fitter will be one of the top priorities.

Rather than waiting until January 1st to start your training, why not get a head start now. If you begin the transformation today, you’ll enter 2016 in a much better position. From there, it’s up to you how far you want to push it.

Here are some essential tips to get yourself started. Carry them into 2016, and there’s no reason it can’t become your year.

fitness-465203_640

 

Set Yourself Realistic Goals

One of the main reasons that people tend to throw in the towel is that they set unrealistic expectations. Just because an internet advert has told you that you can lose 2st of fat in 20 minutes, it doesn’t mean it’s true.

Far too many people expect to see significant weight loss and huge muscle gains after just a few sessions. Changing your body requires long-term dedication. Besides, it can take weeks for other people to notice the difference.

In those early weeks, don’t be concerned about seeing improvements on the scales. Your sole aim should be to see an increase in fitness.

 

Make Fitness More Social

Physical activity is great for the body. However, exercise should be fun too. If you don’t enjoy pounding the treadmill, it might be time to team up with your mates to rediscover the enjoyment of sport.

Setting up your own team is a great way to give yourself an extra incentive while staying in regular contact with friends too. And don’t’ be afraid to celebrate your achievement with Premier Trophies’ football trophies either.

Making sport competitive and fun will help you gain much better results without even thinking about it.

 

Don’t Forget Nutrition

It doesn’t matter if you’re trying to cut fat or pack on muscle. Your body is a machine. If you don’t fuel it with the right foods, you’ll never reach your fitness goals.

As well as eating healthy foods, you can take supplements to give your body the boost it needs. These products are manufactured solely to help you gain the best results. Finding the best ones for you could be the difference between hitting your targets and not.

Furthermore, you should be sure to drink lots of water. Good hydration is important at all times, but especially when pushing your body to physical limits.

 

Mix It Up

Make no mistake, any exercise is better than none. However, the body is very quick to get used to your monotonous routines. If you want to see the best results, you’ve got to kick your body into shape by trying new activities and cycling them on a regular basis.

Keeping your body on its toes will make a significant difference. There are hundreds of different workout routines online. Alternatively, you could mix things up simply by going for a swim

In addition to gaining better results, the variety should make exercise more fun. What more incentive do you need?

MyProtein have definitely pulled it out of the bag with their variety of BCAA flavours, including; Berry blast, Raspberry Lemonade, Orange. I used to have a lot of difficulty in taking my BCAAs, since those I tried always have a sandy taste, but the MyProtein BCAAs mix in the water perfectly and taste excellent! I can already see a big difference in my muscle definition, after using this for the last month. Check out the other flavours here.

Thank you My Protein!
