15 Steps To Get ‘Hard Bodied’ And Kill The Soft/Puffy ‘Look’
Sometimes, all you need to succeed is just a reminder of what you need to do. Because there really are no secrets to success. It’s simply knowing what to do and to simply keep on doing it (in short). And that’s with most things. Not just to get a strong hard physique.
That’s the core reason why Fit Buzz works. Because our long term goal is fitness motivation. And motivation works, because it gets you off of your a** to do what’s needed .
Another thing that works well is setting rock solid short term/long term goals. So, today ive decided to create a list of action items. Actions that you probably know you should be doing, but for whatever reason, are not, in order to kill the soft/puffy ‘look’ and build strong hard curves. As that’s the no.1 concern to most FitBuzzers of recent.
Fit Buzz Action Item #1
Don’t work out on fumes. Always workout with fuel.
Fit Buzz Action Item #2
Prepare your meals a day or week in advance. Doing so means that you have one less thing to think about from your weekly to-do list. The working life may be busy than ever before in 2012. Fortunately we have tools and technology to make that easier (take advantage of your mobile apps and get more s*** done).
Also, youll decrease the chances of snacking on the wrong foods during your busy mornings and pre-workouts. Turn preparation into a habit and consistency with eating the right foods will be a concern no more.
Fit Buzz Action Item #3
A fitness lifestyle is simply a lifestyle change. Yet, you’ll have to get off the ‘easy’ train and feel some pain to get that ultimate Fit Buzz physique. Which basically means you’ll have to bust your a** and train insane.
Now, working out at an insanely intense pace for weeks on end is not realistic. You can only keep that up for several weeks at a time. Follow this goal setting post and focus on a 6 week cycle. This is basically a training format top athletes use to get into tip top shape before a competition.
You simply work at your best rate for 6 weeks, take the 7th week off for rest. Analyse your results. And then do the same thing all over again.
In terms if strength training, that means to start at a heavier weight than you did for the first 6 week cycle. By the 60th or 90th day, you’ll experience results like this….
Fit Buzz Action Item #4
Workout in a no nonsense gym, where everyone is there for one core reason. To get results.
Fit Buzz Action Item #5
Always know exactly what you are going to do in your workouts, before you workout. Going mindlessly into your workouts is the classic sin of the majority. Make sure you are in the minority. If you fail to plan, you plan to fail. It’s that simple.
Fit Buzz Action Item #6
I’ve said this before, but you really are what you eat, literally. I won’t give the full explanation here as this is an action item list. However it is mentioned throughout the lifestyle diet ebook and no nonsense butt building.
Fit Buzz Action Item #7
Use music to fuel that drive to push for those last few reps. As that’s what will trigger most of your results from heavy lifting. Whether the goal is training for strength or size.
Fit Buzz Action Item #8
The mirror is great. It’s better than the scale for reasons I’ve mentioned ALL over this site and on our social profiles. However, gauging your progress via taking pictures is the better option, because you’ll look at yourself every single day. Which means you are half blind to the actual changes that are happening. Also, most of your lean mature muscle building results will take time (slowgress) and its epically (Wait, is that even a word? ) hard to build everyday self motivation by starring at an almost exact ‘you’ from yesterday (which is why stayfitbuzz exists so that you can compare yourself with what you don’t currently look like – search/add ‘shauntls’ on Instagram).
Tip: This is the ONLY time where you SHOULD compare your self to others. For motivation sake.
Fit Buzz Action Item #9
Don’t forget to sleep. Yes, it’s a basic tip. Yet, you are still probably committing this ultimate sin, by not getting enough of it. For some strange reason, the minds of the majority think that the temporary pump that is experienced during the workout is ever lasting. When of course, it is not. Sleep more and your body will thank you for it in the form of body changing results.
Fit Buzz Action Item #10
Find yourself a training partner, unless you workout in a popular gym. Because you will struggle to push yourself for those last few much needed reps on the big compound lifts such as squats or the bench press/seated dumbbell press.
Fit Buzz Action Item #11
Wear clothes that compliment your physique. Yes, it is true that a strong, healthy body will look good in almost any garment. However, that only really applies to those individuals who have developed truly outstanding muscle groups such as glutes, quads and shoulders. Because these are huge muscle groups that are hard to hide. If you are naturally slim, yet have developed a great shape. Then you are going to have to dress to show it. Otherwise most clothes that you buy for your size will look baggy on your superb physique. Which will make you look pretty ordinary.
This is important, because how the ‘public’ responds to you can give you a real motivational boost (or killer) as well as a mighty confidence boost. With confidence being the real benefit, because a confident YOU will improve your career opportunities, your relationship with the opposite sex and your ability to transform the lives of others (very important), amongst other things.
Fit Buzz Action Item #12
Kill the use of machines and start using the barbell more. Some machines are good, in that they allow you to use multiple joints that can be worked at the same time. Yet, is still inferior to barbell based movements. This is because the pattern of the movement is determined by the machine and not YOU… (The individual biomechanics of YOU).
Every ‘male’ FitBuzzer will want bigger quads. (Check out the Alice Matos interview). And most are told to hit the machine that targets your quads ONLY. Yet, quadriceps and hamstrings always function together at the same time in order to balance the force you put upon them on either side of your knees. So clearly, the machine has lost touch with the way the human body works in this scenario.
If you switch to barbells, you can at least make the necessary adjustments to the movement in question. Which is why No Nonsense Butt Building works. With what we like to call ‘shifting the load’.
Fit Buzz Action Item #13
Just lift some heavy weight dammit. You’ll become a lot harder and more dense because of it. No magic pill required.
Fit Buzz Action Item #14
Fear of the weight is not the real issue. Fear of knowing how to use the bar and lift the weight is. Use Stayfitbuzz and the program’s in order to learn how to perform every necessary weight lifting move properly. For your own safety. (… Not joking around, this is serious).
Fit Buzz Action Item #15
The reason that isolated body-part training on machines doesn’t work is the same reason that barbells work so well, better than any other tools we can use to gain strength. The human body functions as a complete system — it works that way, and it likes to be trained that way. It doesn’t like to be separated into its constituent components and then have those components exercised separately, since the strength obtained from training will not be utilized in this way. The general pattern of strength acquisition must be the same as that in which the strength will be used. The nervous system controls the muscles, and the relationship between them is referred to as “neuromuscular.” When strength is acquired in ways that do not correspond to the patterns in which it is intended to actually be used, the neuromuscular aspects of training have not been considered. More barbell action please.
