Macho Muscle Madness
Getting defined, lean, and strong muscles is a lot easier said than done. To get the results you deserve, you’ll need to lose weight (buy Acai Effect for starters), do cardiovascular exercises, and begin a very strict and intense muscle building regime.
Here are three tips to help you achieve these three goals:
1. Eat complex carbs before a workout and lean protein after a workout. The carbs beforehand will give you the energy boost you need to get to work and the protein afterwards will go straight to build muscles that are open and vulnerable after a workout.
2. Don’t fall into the trap of thinking that if you workout then you can eat anything you want. People who work out need to watch what they eat just as much as the next guy (or gal). First, you need to make sure that you’re eating enough calories to support your workout. Don’t do any of those silly fad diets that don’t supply enough energy to your system, and don’t overload on junk food that will make your energy levels go haywire and counteract any other healthy measures you’re taking.
3. Use a personal trainer to guide you, at least at first. There are a few reasons why I recommend this (other than the obvious job plug). First, you need to be careful about safety—if you exercise the same muscle group too many days in a row, then you don’t even give your body a chance to recuperate, which it needs to do if the muscles are going to “grow” properly. Second, if you take on too much too fast, you’ll likely get discouraged and quit. And third, a personal trainer can help motivate you and push you to limits that you may not know you’re capable of.
Most importantly, work slowly and steadily and before you know it you’ll be sporting the six pack of your dreams!
