2. If you've been training for a long period of time be careful with trying to lift the whole gym at every training session. If you want to actually be able to move your body well into your golden years you have to be mindful of your joints and respect your rest days. Don't neglect your recovery time. Getting enough sleep and food is one of the most important tools in maximizing your GAINS bruh 💪🏾
3. Warm up properly before going into your workout. You want to get the blood and oxygen pumping into whatever muscle you're about to train. A warm body is less likely to get injured and you will feel the difference when you start the real work.
4. Stretch after your workout. You'll probably feel a little tight after your workout from all the blood and oxygen that's pumped into your muscles. Studies have shown that stretching before weight training can make you weaker on your lifts. So waiting till your workout is over is a perfect time stretch and lengthen those tight muscles.
5. Don't buy into one form of training or diet. Fitness is not a one size fits all type of thing. What works for Arnold might not work for Dorian (-; Play around with different forms of training and diets until you find one that agrees with your body and lifestyle.

Ok, now that you've got all that other stuff in check we can talk about supplements. Most supplements are crap and you're just getting a placebo affect. The only supplements that are almost guaranteed to actually do what they say they will do is creatine (you don't have to load it or cycle off of it) and caffeine. Everything else is a gamble. Testerone boosters are of no help in the gym. You could even throw in some protein powder or a multivitamin but you don't really need those if you're eating enough food. I think that just about covers it. Now go forth and get those GAINS!!

•You do not have to stop eating carbs.
•You do not have to eat every two hours.(You're not a new born baby)
•Doing cardio on an empty stomach will just make you angry and it isn't better than doing it with food in your stomach.
•Eating sugar will not automatically make you gain weight.
•You don't have to eat based on your blood type or body type.
•You don't have to eat low carb or low fat.
•You do not have to "EAT CLEAN" ! (Eating moderately processed nutritious food is important for long term health but not fat loss)
I know some of you have been at this for awhile and you're probably frustrated because you have all the fitness mags, you follow all the shredded celebrities and you're doing everything they tell you but you still don't look the way they look. Don't get discouraged. Most of what they are telling you is just there personal preference or they are enhanced(drugs, plastic surgery etc.) It is the fitness industry jobs to sell you things and it is Hollywood job to sell you a dream. Fat loss isn't always easy but It's not rocket science either. In order to lose weight you need to put yourself in a calorie deficit. This means you need to consume less calories than what your body burns. You can do this with food or by exercise. The most efficient way to do this is by using both methods along with flexible dieting.(That flexible dieting part isn't science, it's just my opinion if you don't want to drive yourself crazy just eating chicken and broccoli.) You can eat clean all day but if you're not in a calorie deficit you won't lose weight. You wouldn't attempt to build a house by randomly adding material without having a plan right? So why would you attempt to build your ideal body by just winging it? Save yourself some time and frustration and google macro calculator and find out how many calories you need a day. Then make a plan and crush your goals. Remember that the number one factor in weight loss is a steady calorie deficit and if you want to keep your hard earned muscle and not look like a crackhead do this slowly. Aim to lose maybe a pound a week.

We create our own stress. Exchange your expectations with appreciation and enjoy life's little moments. Don't spend too much time stressing over things that you have no control over. When something doesn't go as you expected it go take 90 seconds to freak out, then let it go.
Problems are easier to solve when you're not in a stressed out state. You may think you do better in a stressed state but that's just a lie that you talked yourself into believing. Why do you think football players,basketball players etc.. talk smack to the opposing players? They do it to stress the opposing players out to the point that they are off their game. When you are calm you see things more clearly.
