See if one of these 3 scenarios describes you:
1: “I generally eat clean and healthy, but I tend to skip my workouts.”
2: “I’m very consistent with my exercise, but my nutrition needs work.”
3: “I usually eat healthy and do all kinds of cardio, but I never lift weights.”
If you fall into one of these categories, you’re most likely not seeing the results you desire, because all of these are a HUGE no-no if you’re serious about changing your body and your health.
In fact, if you’re failing to meet your fitness goals, this is probably the #1 reason your fitness plan is failing.
- If you eat clean, but don’t exercise, you might lose weight or be “healthier”, but you’ll never really develop that lean % toned, sexy body with flat abs you want.
- If you workout like your life depends on it, then you eat crappy food, or a half-@$$ed clean eating plan, you might be strong and muscular, but you’ll never see it under that annoying layer of stubborn fat that’s covering it.
- If you eat clean and do tons of cardio, but neglect your strength training, you could lose weight and completely lack muscle tone- AKA. “skinny-fat”. (not cool either)
Even though nutrition is the single most important factor that determines your weight loss (or not weight loss), you can’t ignore the importance of cardio intervals and strength training.
If you’re struggling to reach your fitness goals, this is your friendly reminder to take a good look at, and make sure you’re applying all 3 legs to your program. Otherwise, you’re likely to continue struggling until you eventually get so frustrated you give up and quit all together.
If you’re missing even one of the legs of your fitness tripod, it’s likely you’ll fall short of your goals…but even worse, there’s a good chance you can even gain back all the weight you’ve worked so hard to get rid of. Remember, a tripod doesn’t stand for long when you kick out one of it’s legs – your fitness program is a tripod. Make sure you build strong legs for it to stand on.
