Tips and Instructions to Maximize Your Results

Here are a few tips you can follow to achieve suitable results:

  • Low-Calorie Meal Plan: There is no substitute for a low-caloric diet when it comes to weight loss. Weight loss is only achievable through cutting calories. By avoiding processed foods and including low-calorie filling foods in your diet, you can limit your calorie intake and lower your body fats over time.
  • Train when you feel energetic: it isn’t about physical training only. It also requires mental toughness. So, it is crucial to exercise when you feel active and focused so that you can put your 100 percent during the workout.
  • Pre-workout meal: Having some light snacks or drinks 30 minutes before the workout is best. For example, you can consume dried fruits, oatmeal, energy bars, whey protein, peanut butter toast, etc.
  • Post-workout meal: Whether you train for muscle gain or weight loss, a high-protein meal after a workout is necessary to rebuild muscles and achieve better results. You can have a combination of protein and carbs, such as whey isolate protein and oatmeal, roasted chicken, boiled eggs, and banana, in your post-workout meal.
  • Increase the intensity and load over time: The best way to maximize strength and endurance is to push yourself slightly harder every week. You can do that by raising the load on the bar, increasing the intensity, and reducing the interval time between sets each week.
  • Adding a variety of exercises: You should perform a combination of resistance, cardio, and mobility exercises to stimulate your strength, speed, and endurance and shape your physique.
