Quality of food for staying fit

We live in an age and time where most of the thing is adulterated. How can we be sure of the food we eat is of the good quality forget the best I am merely taking about being good.  Me being a fitness freak and someone who likes to stay fit, always think about what to eat to stay fit? How to get fit and healthy?

Now that’s me being me, but the issue which bugs me to the core is what does a layman do who just wants to stay healthy and have better and longer healthy life. Remember we are what we eat or put in our body. Whether its fitness food, fitness meal or food for fitness; the quality of food is far more important than the actual food itself.

We all know what the right kinds of food are, we need to eat to get fit and stay healthy. We might follow numerous fitness workouts and might focus on healthy fitness recipes while focusing on nutrition, what good does it serve us if the quality of food itself is questionable?

I run a YouTube channel and doing interviews with other fitness youtubers discussing various topics right from effects of steroids to steroid use in fitness industry. I also take about training techniques and diet and food for fitness, mind you these fitness youtubers are natural and don’t use any enhanced substance. This is a video where me and Nigel Bush discussing quality of food and how build good physique by staying natural.

Subscribe to my YouTube channel please do shoot me questions or topics you want me to write and make videos on it can be what are the best supplements to build muscle, healthy fitness meals or how to burn fat and get shredded.

How strong was Franco Columbu

How strong was Franco Columbu you may ask, well Franco Columbu was the Strongest Bodybuilder of the Golden Era of the bodybuilding and was pound for pound strongest of them all. We all know him as the side kick of Arnold Schwarzenegger from the days of pumping iron or much before. However he had more to him than just being a side kick, he was weightlifting, power lifting and then a bodybuilding champion.

He was not just a bodybuilder who had muscles; he could put them to use to put people to sleep since he was also a European boxing champion. He has won numerous weightlifting and bodybuilding competitions, winning Mr. Europe, Mr. World, Mr. Universe and Mr. Olympia twice (1976 and 1981).He trained Sylvester Stallone for the Rambo movies.

He had set great PR’s on bench squat and Dead lift and also on heavy shoulder presses. The most interesting thing was when he competed in world’s strongest man 1977, he was dabbling a refrigerator and had a fall and injured his leg. Doctors declared that the leg was broken, but Franco said it wasn't broken, it was dislocated. If you are already not impressed by his feet’s of strength, one must be impressed by his will and dedication which was put into display when he when through rehabbing his leg and competing again to win the Mr. Olympia title in 1981. Post his accident at the world’s strongest man, he had lot of work at his hand and his efforts are commendable irrespective of where the Olympia of 1981 was fixed or not!

Like Arnold he came from a small village, he was from Sardinia Italy. He conquered the world of bodybuilding and did do small parts in movies made lot of money and became successful.

His best lifts are as follows:
Bench press: 525 lbs.
Squats: 655 lbs.
Deadlifts: 750 lbs.

What are the best ways to lose weight?

This was a question from one of my viewer who never exercised and was significantly over weight. The problem with most people is that they never realize that they are going over board and putting on heaps of weight at later stage. I do understand and acknowledge that focusing on fitness and health takes a back seat when you are in hustle to make life better and provide for your family.

People put on weight for various reason and often ignore the fact that it’s not always about looking good and have a six-pack abs. its beyond that, I am not talking everyone should have a great physique but more on the lines of being healthy and active in life.

Taking care of yourself and being healthy and active and having a fit body is not limited celebrities or athletes. Everyone should take time and pride in being healthy and fit, most importantly be consistent. Well enough said about what is the problem now let’s see how we can fix it.

I can guide you to get fit and stay in shape, but you must help yourself! you need to be consistent in working out, straight on your diet and shouldn't lose focus. Now let’s say you weight 105 kgs and you’re under 6 feet in height. It is quite too much if you don't exercise and have a very sedentary life style. Another most overlooked factor is the age, as you grow old you need to keep your weight under control.

 I suggest you join a gym and start working out ASAP.

Building muscle revolves around few factors which one needs to consider and follow.

1. Weight training and right kind of exercises.
2. Nutrition depending on your goals as to build muscle or loose fat.
3. Rest and recovery depending on your training routine, that is whether you are a beginner, intermediate or advanced.

Initially I would say learn the correct exercises and most importantly the form. when you say weight, I assume you mean muscle, I would say train regularly and hard say 5 days a week.

Stay away from sugar, excess carbs and processed foods.

I suggest do cardio at least 3 days a week. trying doing HIT cardio.

If you follow these simple pointers you are bound to get a fit body and stay healthy.

One of the best whey protein is muscle Blaze Whey protein, I prefer to take 2 whey protein shakes a day and my training has improved since I have added Muscle Blaze to my nutritional arsenal gains have drastically improved.

I want to lose weight Fast

I want to lose weight Fast, How many times have you scratched your head thinking and brooding to find the Simplest way to lose weight in shortest period? The reason can be as simple as getting ready for to flaunt a beach body to impress a girl. Well lets first see whether it is possible to do so? Most importantly do it naturally.

Numerous websites, fitness Youtubers to fitness guru have written and preached best way to lose weight in short period or 10 best ways to lose weight quickly. Sometimes too much of information can lead to confusion and analysis by paralysis!

Let me sort out the confusion, it’s possible to lose weight fast and in short period. But let me clarify it depends and varies from person to person. The simple reason being the genetically make of the individual and their goals. Also, the kind of lifestyle on has because if you’re not self-disciplined then things can be harder and delay results.

The best way to lose weight in short period is to exercise and exercise regularly. What form of exercising to choose I would solely leave it on you. You can start by walking 2kms a day and then gradually increase the distance and intensity. You can join a gym and train with weights to slim down and tighten up. You can do cycling or if you know how to swim, then you can swim.

It’s the regularity that gets you results not what form of training, at least when you are a beginner or an intermediate trainee trying shed weight quickly and build muscle. Weight training 4 days a week is a good start and do cardio at least two days in a week.

Beginner’s workout Routine to Gain Muscle

I get lot of questions from my readers as to how to put muscle if you are a beginner. Especially from people with the body type that of the one which has hard time putting on weight and when I say weight I mean muscle not fat! In this article, I am going to discuss a simple strategy to put on muscle whether you are a beginner or a beginner with an ectomorph body.

The biggest problem with beginners is that they believe if they follow a training routine of pro bodybuilder like Jay cutler or Ronnie Coleman they can become one or look like them. Well sorry to wake you up guys; it isn’t going to happen, because they have great genetics which only few people on earth possess. Other important thing is that you are natural so putting on so much of muscle isn’t possible.  

Now let’s look at what you can do to put on muscle naturally and irrespective of your genetics. You can start putting on by following certain outlined tips.

 First and foremost, you must start training with weights and get your body adjusted to the training demand. Weight training is one of the best ways to stimulate muscle growth and spike testosterone. Make sure your training routine has lot of compound moments and less of machines. Here is a video where I outline one of the basic and best training routine that you guys can follow.

Have a good nutritional plan to build muscle and maintain it. Always remember muscles are built by what you eat and how you time your meals. Quality of food and right kind of macros at the right time is very important. Eat at least 1700 calories of right kind of food.

 HIT Training:

Train on HIT principal that's what I train on and train my clients. Here is a video where I discuses about the HIT training compared to that of High volume training.

 Rest and Recuperation:

 Properly schedule rest and recuperate well to gain muscle. Rest is the most over looked aspect in weight training and I can tell you more are not good, so cut down on your days of training and focus more on training intensity. Train 4 days a week initially. Then change the workout.

One of the best whey protein is muscle Blaze Whey protein, I prefer to take 2 whey protein shakes a day and my training has improved since I have added Muscle Blaze to my nutritional arsenal gains have drastically improved.
