One sighting that I notice multiple times a year, is that of overweight, presumably first-time gym-goers, with a scared, anxious look to their face.

Too often, that will be the last time I see them. It saddens me, so my only motivation for writing this post, is to try and provide some encouragement.

Overweight? Lifting weights is crucial for fat and weight loss

Overweight? Lifting weights is crucial for fat and weight loss

Annoyingly, it still isn’t common practice to instruct overweight/obese people to also lift weights instead of only hammering the treadmill.

Working the same muscle groups two days in a row

Working the same muscle groups two days in a row

How to stay in shape while on vacation without gym access

This post will outline a very rough guidance to how you can;

While we in some degree usually consider ourselves to be more dedicated and disciplined as far as taking care of our bodies and diets than the mainstream masses, week in week out of strict dieting will takes it toll.

How fasting can help you lose weight and might even supercharge the process

How fasting can help you lose weight and might even supercharge the process

Go back just a decade and the thoughts of going for extended time without eating for the purpose of improving bodyrecomposition was deemed idiotic. Gymgoers would tell you that your body would “eat up all your muscle”, and that skipping meals (even if just breakfast) would mess up your metabolism. Oh and something about the body only being able to utilize 30 grams of protein pr. meal, and so on and so on.
