Name Three Things... that will help me become more fit and gain strength

Recently a friend on Facebook asked me the following question:

"Name three things you would suggest to me, in order to become more fit and gain strength. I've decided to make you my inspirational voice to get moving with my goals, since I've seen you become the person you are today, over the past 10 years!"

I answered with the following - granted, some of this is specific to my friend, but a lot of it is universal as well - maybe there's something helpful in there for you:

 

First off... 1.CONSISTENCY - make sure you are doing your chosen exercise modality at the right intensity consistently - if this means Kettlebell Program Minimum for 5 days a week, then ...hop to it! I will be talking about how to develop a system, or how to ask your trainer for a system on here soon!


2. Enough sleep and stress management - this will help you to remain consistent, win the war on cortisol, allow strength and muscle gains to happen, and improve general happy wellness feelings (that's a scientific phrase)


3. Cutting way back, or cutting all together booze and sweets - boozin' it up can really mess with your strength even 2-3 days after a big party... not to mention mess with proper sleep and obviously effect consistency of working out and having a healthy lifestyle. Also, booze makes us more apt to binge on other things like curly fries and cheeseburgers of a dubious nature.
