Endurance training and building muscle do not always go hand in hand! While it is possible to do both, you should understand that the level of muscle you will maintain would not have you looking like a bodybuilder.
When it comes to making changes to your physique, you probably already know it’s not achievable without having consistent and intense workouts! If you come to the gym feeling tired, unmotivated and are just ‘going through the motions’ chances are you are not going to see too much results.
The time has come when you have finally decided to make a change for a healthier lifestyle, drop a few unwanted pounds and start to feel and look your best. That’s fantastic because making this decision is the first and most difficult step.
More and more bodybuilders and physique competitors these days have discovered that eating to just gain weight is not the most effective or healthy way to pack on muscle. Actually, the real secret is to start living a fit and healthy life everyday – eat the right foods for building muscle and keeping lean all the time.
So the day has come, you’ve stepped on the stage, you nailed your routine and/or posing, all that hard work, dedication and determination has finally come to an end. Now what?
