#100daysofstrong - Understanding Your Body and Setting Realistic and Healthy Goals

#100DaysofStrong The kind of physique i aspire for is this. Not the glitsy oiled up male barbie doll version of modern day bodybuilding. Or the parade of media's 'fitness' models. Having been on the inside of the industry, I have learnt way more closely than most people of the weaknesses of 'model' physiques. In the quest for being 'ripped' all the time, most of these people use pharmaceutical drugs that increase the bmr or drop water like fat transporters/burners and diuretics that keep them at extremely low body fat levels all the time - which is one of the most unhealthy things you can do to your body. For a shoot or two, or for a competition, getting into that condition is not a problem. But to aim to stay that way all year round is asking for serious trouble.People who naturally have the genetics for low levels of subcutaneous fat can do it without pharmaceutical support. And ideally, only they should do it. Understanding your genetic makeup and constitution before you set your goals goes a long way in ensuring that you don't end up chasing a pipe dream or worse, chase a goal that's actually so unattainable that you end up poisoning your body to achieve it. Be honest to yourself. Set your goals after completely understanding how the body works and what is actually attainable most efficiently for you. And you will save yourself a lot of trouble and maybe from a life cut short too early. Heavens forbid.#strong #physique #fitness #aesthetic #bodyimage #bodybuilding #figure #ideal #trainer #strength
