Why You Don’t Really Want A Six Pack..
You might want a six pack now
Let me give you an insight into why it can be a complete disaster
This subject actually came from two separate conversations that I’ve had with members recently
One was a little disappointed not to have visible abs
And the other slightly disappointed at only maintaining her results
My response to both is the same
Everyone can always do better!
At least on paper
You can cut out any treats and eat only nutrient rich foods
You can calculate your macronutrient intake and control every single calorie you consume
You can cook and prepare all of your food for the week ahead
You can hit the gym every single morning before work
You can take any supplements that would help you achieve your goal….legal or otherwise
There are always things you can do on paper
The key is to find the balance between your results
And the impact it has on your life
If you can maintain your results without sacrificing any of your favourite foods
Is that really so bad?
If you can still enjoy treats, not be tied to the gym..
And be very lean but not quite have your abs showing
Is that a disaster?
To me its not
I’ve been very lean in the past
I’ve had visible abs and a very low low body fat percentage
And I’ve done it both by being strict
And by being patient and relaxed about it
But both ways are still very difficult to maintain
I’ve known people sacrifice so much
Get so lean
That they develop an eating disorder and gain upwards of 40lbs
They put their health at risk.
The thing for me now is..
Having visible abs is not more important than enjoying my life
Or being a dad
Things that definitely are affected when you start the extreme process of trying to hit very low levels of body fat
Those aren’t sacrifices I’m prepared to make
Now, don’t get me wrong
You can have visible abs and without having a negative impact on your life
Many of our members do just that
If you’re not careful
And you don’t appreciate improvement over perfection
You can end up chasing a goal that takes you further and further into dangerous territory
It’s easy for me to say since I’ve experienced the sacrifices in the past
But take it from me
If you can eat the foods you love
Train just 3 times a week
And still lose weight
And improve confidence…
Then you’re on to a winner!
