How's your workout going? Doing good? Or still thinking where to begin? Or some of you may get lost somewhere wondering what to do? Or maybe.... didn't see much changes of your body?
Don't panic! Be patient & remember....... Don't give up on yourself !! :D
It is Okay to have doubts running in your mind, sometimes I face obstacles too.
It is Okay to reset what you started, as long you keep track on yourself to make sure you doing it right.
It is Okay to put down your ego, you've to admit when you don't see any result, or you might notice someone in the gym who actually have better result, don't be shy, ASK for more Info.
*Life is all about learning*
For those who had started and having a good progress, congrats! Keep it up (^.^)/
But must always bare in mind, good start means setting your mind into a correct mindset.
I received quite some emails from my blog readers, thanks all for the support and trusted me for my advices. I'm glad I did help some of you, all the best to you all !!
Alright, This time....I'm going to answer some Q&A here.
Q: I did a lot of home-workout, almost everyday. I even did hundreds of sit ups too. But why can't I get ripped of my tummy? why can't i see results?
A: First of all, doing home-workout is good. But actually it's just good for keeping your body muscle warm. And when comes to tummy, there's a say " How long you take to grow that tummy = how long you need to use to cutting it off." Sounds crazy i know, but actually make sense to me. Most important is Cardio (jogging, cycling, skipping,dancing etc.) Doing sit ups won't cut of your belly, sit ups actually building your abs, even doing thousand of sit ups, there's still a layer of fat will cover your abs. Somehow, You still need to jog it off so your abs will be more visibly!
Always remember, don't expect to see the results if you are not putting 100% of your efforts!
Q: It's hard for me. I'm busy. I've a active social life which makes me have no time to workout. I don't know what to do. Everything just to hard for me. what should i do?
A: Well. Everything's against me as well. Everything's HARD for me too! I'm a blogger, I attend to a lot of events, some till late night. I'm alcoholic, I party at least 2-3days a week and drink like there's no tomorrow! LOL! That's who I am before i started my gym life (o.0) Hahahaha...
So......How did I managed to change all these?? it is DETERMINATION & DESIRE in you!
No ones gonna love you more than yourself. No ones gonna care for your body more than yourself.
I started twice before this. I failed. But when I decided to be a better person and wanted to be better in shape, I took it seriously once again and until now, I never regret that I made this choice once again. It's ok if you stopped or fall down. Just get back up and keep going!
Remember, Ask yourself who you wanna be! Ask yourself what you deserve! Of course.... a better person and greater in shape is what we want ! It's MIND OVER MATTER!! When you decided and take it as your life time commitment, nothing's gonna stop you and, you'll pop out plenty of time for workout, out of sudden you'll become your own nutritionist and plan your own diet, you'll become your own coach and motivator to kick your ass to keep going! And you'll realized having a goal is the BEST FEELING EVER :D
Q: Is there any ways or any workout that can slim down my fat flabby arms yet don't grow muscles? Ewwww, Muscles look ugly on women!
A: I'm sure you know..."Muscles is not easy to grow"...If you read my previous posts. If you really wanna lose some fats, Lift some Weights! Lift weights don't give you instant access to grow muscles! If really does, then we'll see a lot of guys with nice body shape yet not flat chest, fat tummy and flabby arms. Lifting means.. stress our muscles not make it grow!
For e.g. If lifting 1kg and you can easily do 30reps nonstop, means 1kg no longer works on your muscles, and when your muscles is used to the same weight you used to lift, it won't help you to burn your fat anymore. WHY? because the muscle don't need extra energy to put the weight. The muscles can't feel it anymore. Understand?
Another e.g....If by lifting 1kg can slim down flabby arms, every housewife that do house work won't have flabby arms/big tummy already, because they need to do house work from day to night, carry stuff here and there everyday. They burn fats too? Obviously NOT....
So, lift some weights, stress your muscles to burn your arm's fat to energy by weight lifting. It really helps!! Take note, add weight step by step. From 1kg > 2kg > 2.5kg > 3...
Actually, I'm using 4-5kgs for my biceps training. 6-10kgs for my squatting. 5-10kgs for my abs.
Am I freaking you out when you see my pic? LOLLLLLL...
I wanted to gain some muscles because my mom and my friends said that i'm too "skinny" LOL! Honestly it's not easy to gain muscles, still working hard on it *btw,i do love muscles..but not TOO much* Of course when you slimmed down already, don't add heavier if you don't wanna grow muscle.
Q: After workout, my muscles sore for days and I can't stick with my workout routine.
A: Well, I have the same experience before. That's why I suggest for a week or two home-workout to warm up your body before you starting to hit the gym. Or you have the same problem when you doing home-workout too... then you have to take note of few examples below :
- Muscles sore = Not enough rest to recover your body's muscle. Try to have minimum 7-8 hours of sleep at night. Or maybe take a hour or half of nap after your workout for muscles repair.
- Dehydrated. Lack of water will cause the soreness last longer. Drink at least 1500ml if you're 50kgs, 2000ml for 70kgs.
- Lack of nutritions. Your body needs a lot of nutritions to recover. Proteins and vitamins. You can take supplements and protein shakes. Remember, taking protein shakes won't make you buff or fat. There are lots of different protein powders in the market which is low in calories and good for women. Grab 1scoops a day will do :)
Rest more, Drink more water, have a Balance Diet meal plan. Try to go for a massage once a month or have some sex to help you to relax your muscles as well. LOLLLLL
So far I found these few questions quite interesting these are all the common mistakes people made.
Hopefully my answer helps you guys in your future workout plan.
Bare in mind there's no FIX routine, FIX strategy, FIX meal plan in losing weight and become fit.
Only you know what's going on with you body, what's your body need. That's why you need to keep learning and stay on the correct path to make sure you're heading to the right way of having a true healthy life!! All the best to all of you !
