2019 is the year to set, attain, and demolish your goals! The only way that this can be accomplished is with the combination of diet, training, and supplementation. With these three components combined, success is inevitable. The keys to a complete body transformation and the best you can only be attained if work is put in both in the gym and when you leave the gym.
Diet is when the muscles are nourished, fed, and maintained; training is the process of tearing down to build and where the physical work is put in; and supplementation is the icing on the cake, so to speak. This article explains each and shows how they work together to make your best body ever.
The word diet is often misconstrued as a low calorie way to lose weight. This is false. Diet is your eating regimen and the food that you consume for nourishment, and a proper diet is key to progress and gains in bodybuilding and a healthy lifestyle.
A healthy diet should consist of a mix of carbohydrates, protein, fiber, and healthy fats. Carbs are essential for energy, protein is essential for muscle gain, and fats are needed by your body to function properly and repair itself. Regardless of your goals for 2016, a balance of these are a must for progress.
Another important factor is when you eat: you should eat for what you’re going to be doing for the next few hours. If you’re going to be sedentary, you should refrain from eating a big meal. And its also best to spread smaller meals out throughout the day. This is a way to keep your metabolism going and a great way to lose weight.
Training is essential for muscular gains but also overall cardiovascular health. Once you set your goals, it is imperative that you develop a workout routine that coincides with those goals. For instance, if gains in muscle mass is your goal, weight training must be incorporated. If you’re training for a marathon, the treadmill will be more of your focus.
But whether your goal is to lose weight or gain muscle, the combination of cardio and weight training is the perfect combination. The combination of these two result in gains in lean muscle mass and burn fat more adequately than any other method. Another method of training would be to combine the two aspects into one. This is known as High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT). This method is very intense but is a popular way to burn fat, increase endurance, and gain muscle.
Supplementation is a key aspect that is often overlooked by the average person. But it is essential in growth and health. When following an intense workout regimen, your body is often overtaxed and sometimes depleted of essential vitamins and minerals. So it’s a must that we supplement these things to give our bodies the best environment that’s conducive to growth. Some key supplements that should be a part of everyone’s daily intake include the following: multivitamin, fish oil, vitamin d, and creatine.
- Multivitamin- Essential for everyone to ensure overall health and to attain your RDA of essential vitamins and minerals
- Fish Oil- Essential for overall cardiovascular health and the treatment of many health issues including heart disease
- Vitamin D- Essential for the regulation of calcium and the maintenance of strong bones and teeth
- Creatine- Essential especially for those wanting to build muscle; aids in muscle growth and recovery
