Get the Body You’ve Always Wanted

A few months ago I participated in a blog round-up with Gym Junkies in which I described my top 3 favorite exercises.

Well, they’re at it again. This time around they’ve asked bloggers and personal trainers what their #1 tip is for achieving fitness goals. Mine?

Make your easy workouts longer and easier, and your hard workouts shorter and harder.

I elaborate on this in the full-length article: 19 Incredible Tips for Getting the Body You Want.

Some of the others?

Mike OD from The Life Spotlight:

“Slow and steady wins the race of life. People looking for shortcuts and quick solutions are destined for no real gains and reverting back to old bad habits.”

Carla from MizFitOnline:

“From the beginning set yourself up on a program (from food to workout) that you can do for LIFE. For the long haul. Day in day out.”

Check out the full article and the other 16 tips here.

  1. Great advice on that post. I also like the last tip, where Vic mentions stepping out of your comfort zone and actually doing something different, something that works. The quote “‘I can’t lose weight cause of my genetics’ BULLSHIT” is a classic.

  2. Hey Mark…At the gym I workout at amongst the gym junkies we have some juice junkies and I am not talking about carrot juice. It seems so unfair. They do just a minumum amount of work and get big, ripped and so much better results then the rest of us natural trainers. What is your opinion of this?

  3. Mark,

    Curious to know if your familiar with the TRX suspension training system. My wife attended a day-long training session this past weekend and came away pretty impressed. The hardware seems expensive for what it it, but I know body weight exercises can make a foundation of a good program.

  4. Mark your advice was killer! That was easily the most thought out contribution to the post. Thanks for that…

    @ Biff, just wanted to clarify Gym Junkies for us is just a term for people who love fitness and working out. We def. dont recommend juicing or anything of the sort. Just hard work!

  5. You gave a really good tip right there Mark. I also liked Rusty’s tip about allowing yourself to go on a low calorie diet for awhile.

    People eat too much!


  6. Biff, I feel your pain. I know guys and gals on the juice who get huge on very little work (and crappy diets). We call it “bigorexia” They can’t seem to get big enough, so they do more and more juice. I also see enough of them get injured, have immune problems and otherwise messed-up non-Primal lives, so I am never tempted to go that route. I used to tell those guys who asked me why I was training the way I was that “my goal is to get as small as I can and still be able to kick your ass!” It’s all about power-to-weight and functional fitness. OTOH, if big is your only goal, who am I to stop you?

    Justin, thanks for the shout out and the opportunity.

  7. omg, you both look awesome ! I have 10 years to go until I can look that great LOL – my husband and I both are sold – hehe – just waiting on the book to get here 🙂 .. seriouly, this is a great post and perfect illustration (pun intended on why scale weight is so misleading !
    thanks !
