Fitness Tips for Newbies

A fit person is usually a healthy and happy person and leading a well-rounded life can be rewarding in many ways. If you’re ready to get in shape but aren’t sure on where to start your fitness journey you should definitely continue to read the tips below. They’ll help you get on track and assist you in leading a healthy, active, and fit lifestyle. Those who get in shape share similar traits and determination in wanting to achieve their goals.

How to Eat Well While Exercising

In order to get the most out of your fitness potential, prior to lifting weights, be sure to eat plenty of meat and as many proteins as you possibly can. Meat contains an abundance of protein and other nutrients that aid in muscle growth. Lean meat is best while turkey chicken and fish are a good source of protein as well. The recommended serving is about 6 ounces a day of protein followed by some form of physical activities or moderate exercising.


The longer you wait to get in shape the harder the task will become, the more overweight that you become you will become less mobile and when you initially begin exercising it will be painful and very tiresome. Do not let this discourage you or sway you away from continuing to work out as your body will grow adapt to the exercises your perform the more you do too.

Getting Ready For Your First Day To WorkOut

For your first day of working out, start slowly. And take time to become orientated with your surroundings as well as the routines that other have that you are working out with. There are many unwritten rules of working out in a public gym and make sure that you are always practicing proper workout ethic and showing respect for those who you are sharing the equipment with. Make sure you that you get familiar with the machines and the equipment that you will be using and gradually work your way up to bigger and heavier weights as you become stronger. If you don’t know where to start or where to begin ask the trainer at your local gym or do some simple research based on your weight and height to gain a general idea of where you should begin. Remember that Rome was not built in one day and if you don’t do this, then the next morning you will be extremely sore and you can possibly damage part of your muscles or tissue.

Setting Your Fitness Goals

Set goals. Whatever exercise you choose to pursue, set weekly goals and track your progress. You may set any goal appropriate for your fitness level, but the key is to persistently follow through on your plan. Record your daily workouts on a chart or keep track and record the exercise that you are to perform on a daily or weekly basis. A great way of doing this is to segment certain days for the certain body part or body regions so you can quickly recall what exercise you will be performing that day. Every time you complete to set a new milestone you should feel good about yourself and when you look in the mirror and notice that you are shredding pounds take a time to enjoy that moment, you earned it!

Tracking and Monitoring Your Fitness Routine

If at all possible keep track of the time that you spend on each exercise or in between each exercise and do your best to record your progress. If you have a stopwatch that can quickly keep track of time or if you have a smartphone there are many free apps that you may download to help you keep track and monitor the time that you spend on each exercise. When using an exercise ball it is helpful to time each exercise so you know how long you are in each position. Holding each position for a specified length of time helps you build muscles and reach your fitness goals. This will be a good way to test how long and how much your body can take and work to improve this on a weekly or bi-weekly basis.

When I first started working out, I made EVERY mistake a new comer makes. I lifted more weight than I could handle, ate too much food to gain size and listened to people who didn't know what they were talking about.

Lets prevent that. Learn from my mistakes so you can get to your goals FASTER.

Don't Yo Yo With Your Body
Over the last four years I've gone from 145-215 and everything inbetween. I'm a trained professional, so losing fat and gaining it back to put out programs is kinda of ok for me to do, but yo-yoing will wreck your body. Constantly switching from bulking to cutting doesn't give enough time to accomplish EITHER. If you want to gain muscle dedicate at least one solid year of doing so, for losing fat, depending on how much you need to lose it might take twelve weeks to a year. I'm always a much bigger advocate of slow steady gains. In fact, I don't like the idea of a bulk and then cut phase. Instead you should be continuously eating healthy while increasing your exercise capacity. Focus on exercise progress and results will happen.

Don't Train For Pain
I was misguided like the vast majority of people into thinking that pulverizing your body into the ground every single work out is the secret key to growing a great physique. But my shitty results proved otherwise. Just look at any non-steroid using serious lifter, who has made serious gains over time, and you'll find that they always train AT their work out capacity NEVER above it. You need to train intense enough to produce results but not excessive to Train with your brain, not with your ego.

Quality foods still have calories
You know when I gained 80 pounds in a year, you might think it was all booze and burgers, but truth be told, I was just eating 5000 calories of incredibly healthy food usually.

Heres what I would eat

1 Grapefruit
1/2 Cup Uncooked Steel Cut Oats (then Cooked)
2 Cups of Milk
½ Cup Cottage Cheese
= 780

2 Can of Tuna
2 Tablespoon Mayonnaise
4 Slices of Bread
= 780
Post-Work Out
2 Bananas
2 Scoops Protein Powder
= 450

Post-Work Out Meal
2 Scoops Protein Powder
2 Cups of Milk
3 Tablespoons of Peanut Butter
2 tablespoons of Honey
= 1000

1 Serving of Omar's kickass chilli (700-800 calories)
= 800 calories

2 Grilled Chicken Breasts cooked in 3 tablespoons of Olive Oil
= 800 calories

TOTAL= 4600 calories on average

SERIOUSLY. Clearly I ate way too much, remember a tablespoon of almond butter still has 100 calories. If your waistline is expanding, you are eating too much.

Don't Make Your Own Program
No one has all the answers. And a cookie cutter routine made in a magazine for ten million people probably isn't the exact fit for YOU. On the other hand, combining 18 different training routines into a super program isn't the best idea. Exercise is a learning process of what WORKS and what DOESN'T work for you. You need to find methods that produce results.

I'm a cocky asshole because all my methods have been field tested with a ton of training clients, something that most "gurus" can't actually say. Use my training programs and tools to get you on the right path to YOUR body and start getting results. But Shit, sometimes you shouldn't listen to me completely. Are you embarrassed by your puny calves? Then don't listen to my advice about calf training, I don't care about building bodybuilder calves, but maybe you do. This is customization.

In summary, if I could go back to my 18 year old self, I would tell him to
1) Don't cut his hair despite what the ladies might say, long hair gives you power

2) Don't be such a tool in the gym, train hard but not to the point of death, don't yo-yo with your body, get a program that works (don't create your own) and don't shut down buffets.
