Fightwize Health and Fitness

Many people start the year out with the best intentions to improve their health and fitness, most people would like to be in much better shape than they are but don't really know how to get there or start a program that they don't finish.. Below are some very simple steps that you can incorporate into your life style.

First set a goal of what you would like to achieve and then plan how you are going to get there. Here's a simple guide to help you build a better, healthier body. This is a very general guide, programs can be worked out to suit individual requirements.

It takes a surprisingly small amount of training time backed up with a sensible nutrition plan to get yourself back into shape, here are 10 simple guidelines to help you on your way :

1. Resistance Training - Approximately 45 minutes of Weight Training, covering major muscle groups. A simple guide is to weight Train - 3 times per week, alternating Upper and Lower body workouts (See sample schedule). Keep Resistance and Cardio Training  on separate days. If you are looking to build muscle it is critical that you reach that point of failure on every group of exercises. You can train at the local Gym or you can assemble your own basic Training Equipment at home very easily with an incline bench and a few weights or even Home Gyms are reasonably priced these days. If cost is an issue then try resistance bands, these are very reasonably priced and a range of exercises can be carried out. Resistance Training is a critical part of your program, whether you are looking to tone or build.

2. Cardio Training - 20 minutes of intense Interval training can be carried out in a variety of ways. Skipping, running, cycling, Rowing, Treadmill, Exercise Bike, stepper, bag work etc. The important thing is to start slowly, warming up your body and to hit a number of high effort levels during the period. An example is running - start off jogging, gradually increase the pace then run a series of full out sprints of about 50 yards each with a jogging or walking, recovery period in-between. We recommend working on the Abdominal muscles for about 10 minutes after each Cardio session, this will ensure they get 3 workouts per week too. Abs require no more than performing various sets of crunches, reverse crunches and oblique crunches with or without the assistance of an Abs Ball.

3. Eat Frequently - Eat 6 meals per day if possible. Each meal should consist of a Protein and Carbohydrate. Vegetables should be included with at least 2 meals each day. "Grazing", as it's called will help your metabolism far more than starving your body. 6 meals a day  is made easier these days with the availability of meal replacement shakes and bars.

4. Rest - This is one of the most overlooked components to building a better body. The body needs rest to recover and rebuild itself. After working a Muscle group until failure, it will need 3 to 4 days to recover. Also try to sleep at least 7 to 8 hours each night. Also, not only rest from your workouts but also take a day off the whole program each week, do and eat as you please to. This will help remind you of all the things that you've been trying to avoid.

5. Drink Water - Our Muscles are made up of approximately 75% water and it is essential to keep them hydrated. Water initiates a cascade of Biochemical processes within the body that are essential for everything from digestion to increased energy levels. Even a slightly dehydrated muscle can lead to decreased performance levels. People who are training should drink at least 10 glasses of water per day, this does not include Coffee, tea, sodas or juice or even water already consumed during workouts

6. "Variety is the spice of life" - so use it to your advantage in all areas. Add Variety into Workouts - This is important not only to keep you motivated but when your body becomes accustomed to the same workout each and every time, you reach a plateau and your muscles won't grow. By varying the type of exercise, the number of reps, the amount of weight etc, your body is always tested helping it to grow and not get you into a state of boredom either. Also vary the foods you eat so you do not become bored of your Nutrition plan, there is certainly plenty to choose from even when you stay within the "authorized" food Bracket. You can also vary your Cardio activity to keep you motivated and interested. Run one week, exercise bike the next, skipping and so on, there are no set rules as long as you keep up the intensity for each session.

7. Use a proven Supplement - If you are looking to build muscle or burn fat or tone in general then choose a supplement that has been well tested. There are so many available these days but do your homework first. There is some very good information regarding goals and which supplements to take to help you reach them "HERE". Remember that there are no magical pills that do it for you but there are many that will assist a sensible program.

8. Intense workouts - This is a most important factor. You are training for a short period of time but make the most of it. Stay away from idle Gym chit chat and just take the minute or so rest you need in-between sets. Ensure you reach your maximum effort levels at the required points. You are working each muscle group up to a point of failure.

9. Consume proteins/ Carbohydrates after a workout - There is a limited time after an intense workout of approximately 30 to 60 minutes, referred to as a window, where your body is starving for Nutrients and will suck up anything put into it. This is your window for taking an abundance of muscle building Supplements it is also an ideal time to take a good meal replacement shake rich in both Proteins and t good quality Proteins and Carbohydrates - Many foods such as Turkey, Tuna, Chicken, Salmon, Buffalo etc are good sources of Protein.

10. Good sources of Carbohydrates - Are brown rice, oatmeal, potato, yams etc...or sugary carbs such as banana or apple. As mentioned previously there are some very good meal replacement shakes available too. Shakes and bars are very useful from a time saving point of view as preparing 6 good meals each day would be very time consuming. Aim to eat 6 meals each day, each meal should contain a Protein, a carbohydrate and at least 2 meals should contain a helping of Vegetables. A portion of Protein should be about the size of the palm of your hand, a portion of Carbohydrates about the size of your clenched fist and about half a cup of fresh Vegetables.


Some BONUS TIPS and all still very important are to plan ahead, get organised and write down your goals. Each evening just sit down and ensure your days workout schedule and notes are up to date. If you plan out your workouts ahead of time then you're more likely to do it. Also organise your meals for the whole of the next day, this way you are also more likely to stick to your nutrition plan. Ensure that you are well stocked with the right kinds of food. Train over a set period of 12 weeks, write down goals at the beginning and review them each day.
