Tip #1 – Shut the Fuck Up!
Stop crying about why you can’t reach your fitness goals and take harder, detailed, consistent actions to achieve your goals. Crying alone, will not magically solve your problems. If what you’re currently doing isn’t working for you, then do something else.
Tip #2 – Get More Calories!
We don’t recommend weight gainer proteins because it’s just expensive ass protein with a lot of calories and sugar in it. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not saying they don’t work. But I prefer that you get the calories from real food, instead of some processed bullshit. You gotta EAT HARD and LIFT HARD! And Instead of weight gainers, I recommend you put 2 tablespoons of coconut oil inside of your regular protein shakes (an easy extra 300 calories). Another thing you can do if you can stomach it, is take shots of olive oil
(or pour it on top of a lot of your meals)
TIP #3 – Focus On Compound (Exercise) Movements!
Compound movements are exercises such as squats, dead-lifts, rows, dips, pull-ups, shoulder presses and bench presses. These movement especially help to build mass. They’re called compound movements because they work multiple muscles in one exercise.
Tip #4 – Time Your Rest In Between Your Sets!
I’m astonishing as to how many people don’t time themselves between sets! People think I’m on my phone when they see me at the gym. But actually, my phone is on airplane mode so no one can bother me while I’m at the gym and I’m actually pressing the timer in between my sets. I rest about 60 to 90 seconds. While other people are playing on their phone taking pics etc and wasting like 7+ minutes in between their sets. And they wonder why they’re not making any gains.
Tip #5 – Get At Least 8 Hours Of Sleep Each Night!
If you sleep more, your body will produce more testosterone and more growth hormones. And if you don’t get enough sleep. You’re testosterone and growth hormone levels will drop and that makes it harder to put on muscle and easier to put on fat. You’re progress will be ultimately slowed.
Tip #6 – Cut Back On The Cardio!
Just do like sprints a few times a week for about 10 to 15 minutes.
Tip #7 – Keep a Training Log!
Keeping a training log is the most important tip out of them all. You write down how many reps you did on an exercise, the sets, and how much rest between each. You write down everything you eat everyday and what time you ate it. Plus you should be drinking an least a gallon of water a day. This help you stay organized and accountable. And if you skip this step your only hoping to reach your goals .
