This isn’t something that I do often
But I thought it might be time to grace
You with some general (physical) fitness tips
I kinda take be a trainer for granted sometimes
I forget that I’ve been doing this for over a decade
And what may be common knowledge to me and
My fellow “fitspos” may sound more like a quadratic
Formula for traveling through space and time.
So today I’m gonna drop a little knowledge on you
And dispel a few common myths that you may or
Or may not already know.
1. Be Coachable- Right 92 counter on 3. Ready?
Break! Yeah, not exactly, but having the ability
To follow directions and take initiative to then
Act on what you’ve learned is what I would
Consider to be an important attribute that
Pretty much guarantees progress.
2. Start with the end in mind- There are actually
A few reasons why you should do this that
But the one that I think most applies to
Your fitness is to have an idea of how you
Want your body to look BEFORE you start training.
You have to set up a game plan, or else you’re just gonna
End up doing 30 mins on the elliptical for a week
Only to never be seen in the gym again for another month.
3. Enough with the cardio!- Seriously, add a little
Resistance to your training. You don’t go through life
Without a few barriers and struggles, so you should
Consider doing the same with your workouts.
4. In with the good out with the bad
I think that was a quote from Mr. Miagi, but anyway
What I’m talking about here is fat. Good fats are normally
Found in nuts (cept coconuts…but that’s a different convo)
Beef, milk, cheese, and butter are considered Saturated
Or as some would call them, “Bad fats”
While good fats are normally liquid at room temperature
And are mostly seed oils (read the link for more info)
5. Ask a pro- You can’t possibly believe I would end this
Without throwing out a shout out to all my trainer homies
I’ll give you that they may not all have P.h.D in kinesiology
But I guarantee that at least 80% percent know at least
A little more than you do about fitness.
Well brozilla that’s all I’ve got for you today.
