You know, as the weeks go by it's really important you do not stagnate in what you're doing, the aim of the game is to keep progressing forward. When you fail to see results your first instinct is to blame something other than yourself and in some cases you will quit altogether. Staying healthy and reaching your goals is a long process which means you need to make sure you don't fall behind in your training. Some weeks are going to be good while others may not be so rewarding, therefore it's imperative you have the right tools to help you accomplish your goal.
Don't Fall Behind
In order to achieve your goal you will have to be willing to accept that there will be times you won't get as far ahead as you'd like, some things are going to hold you back. While it's only natural there will be hiccups it's crucial to you and your progress that you don't fall behind and you continue to find progress in your journey.
Stay On Track
Of course the foods you eat and the amounts of calories you consume per day has a great impact on how your body is going to look and function. By now you will have heard the phrases, 'you are what you eat' and ' you are what you digest', which all relate to the foods you eat and how much of each type of food you have. On the other hand you have your training which is another important aspect of staying on track, the types of exercises and the amount of exercise you do each week will have an immediate impact on your body.
A useful way of staying on track is having the right supplements to help 'supplement' your goals. Now, I am not talking about fat burners and diet whey powders, I am speaking about regular protein, multivitamins and branched chain amino acids, the important ones! I believe these supplements should be taken alongside your diet because they will help with things like muscle ache, fatigue, strength and energy which all play a huge part in how you feel and progress.
Whey Protein - Use this type of supplement to help your muscles recover quicker and stronger from workouts which are going to leave you sore. You can use a whey protein as a snack too during the day if you need to bump your protein requirements as you may not have had enough for the day.
BCAAs - Branched Chain Amino Acids are small building blocks of protein there to help support muscle growth and strength, as well as tone.
Multivitamins - Use these daily to help support your active lifestyle and keep your immune system super strong. These will also keep your body functioning properly without feeling tired.
Keep up the hard work and remember that if it was easy, everyone would be doing it!!
