Whats up folks – With Summer near – I thought it be would be only right for us to get into a Fat Loss/Build Muscle series.

This is the time now when people start talking about the beaches and holidays. Everyone wants to look good on the beach and walk with confidence. So let’s into it.

The Science Of Fat Burning/Building Muscle

When you burn more calories than you intake – You will loose fat.

When you lift weight over a period of time and consume more calories than you burn, you will build muscle.

When loosing fat, you want to do it healthily and steadily though – It’s not a over night process . The same can be said in reverse – You didn’t gain the weight over night did you. Just a realistic truth to help you build and get into the right mind set.

Patience is needed for both weight loss and muscle building. The last thing you want to do is to give up 3 weeks into your program. Set yourself a time frame and track your progress as you go along to keep you motivated.

For this series we’ll look at the following (in no particular order):

Goal Setting

Nutrition

Exercise

Consistency

Motivation

Today for part 1, we’ll look at Exercise.

Now exercise can be done in many different forms:

Boxing

Athletics

Weight Lifting

Martial Arts

You name it..

To build muscle, you need to do bodyweight exercise, kettle bells, weight lifting or some form of weight bearing exercise.

To loose fat you need to stay active and keep an eye on your nutrition. You want to be exercising at least 3 x a week.

You can’t be eating KFC 5x a week and expecting realistic results – This is the reality!

As stated above, if you want to build muscle you have to eat more calories than you are burning to also see realistic results. You want to be lifting weight at least 3 x a week minimum. You should up your carbs and healthy fats and make sure your protein is balanced accordingly.

I try to stay away from meat for my protein these days and switch it up to plant based proteins like:

Nuts

Legumes

Seeds

Beans

I do this for health and personal reasons, some of which I will get into another time.

But if you eat meat, do what you gotta do my friend…

I hope you guy’s found this helpful…

Look out for part 2 and if you have any questions…

Love folks! Stay blessed! Stay Healthy! And Stay Strong!
