My Gym

IMG_4771

The biggest question I’ve been asked lately is “what do I do to get fit?” and to be honest I used to think this was the scariest question to answer.  I remember when I first started, I followed all kinds of fitness models and Inspirations and thinking

1. What’s their secret? and

2. Where do I begin?

So, now people are asking me for advice, which is a responsibility I always hoped for, but hope to do right. So to do that, I’m about to be as honest as I can be with y’all.

Down to the “what do I do” question. It’s simple, I go to the gym 5/7 days of the week. 3 days I do lower body, 2 days I do upper body and abs I try to do all 5 days. I try to lift 50-60% of my max because in order to build muscle, you gotta put them under some serious stress! Now, if your thinking I get up at 6am in the morning and workout for 2 hours, then, I’m sorry to burst your bubble. I go at different times almost everyday because sometimes I like to catch some extra Z’s, but I NEVER skip. I do not workout for 2 hours, and i have no idea how people do that. I workout for about a hour to a hour and fifteen minutes. If your one of those people that spends 2 hours working out in the gym I would love to hear your story.

Now, on to the “what do i eat” question. Guys, I am not on a fancy diet and the only two things I keep track of are my calories and protein. I try to eat about 2500 calories 200 grams of protein a day. Everyone is different of course because everybody has different goals. My goal is to build muscle, therefore I had to up how much I eat. However, I really just put away the soda and decreased my sugar and fast food intake. Pushing aside all the greasy foods was probably the best thing I did for my body but other than that, I shop at worlds market and eat, eat, eat.
