1 The Mentality of the Winner
The mentality of the winners is that they do not look at fitness as a short-term goal. This is a very important mentality you are not doing fitness to get those sexy abs or bulgy shoulders or great biceps. Always do it for yourself. Eventually, when you grow older you want to go into your old age as a more fit and healthy person.
Always take fitness as a lifestyle. When you have this kind of winner mentality short-term defeats will not bring you down. When you are healthy from the inside your brain works the best and when your brain works the best you perform great through the rest of your life. My advice for all of my readers will be to look at fitness as a base for the rest of your life.
Treat your diet and workout as an essential part of your life just in the same way you look brushing your teeth or combing your hair. Always remember initially your gains in the gym are going to be incredible you will get bigger muscle very easily you get cuts very easily but as time passes your progress slows down.
It becomes very difficult to stick to the fitness lifestyle for 6 months to 1 year, and that is where boys are differentiated from men. A lot of teenagers end up quitting the fitness lifestyle just by being 6 months into the process sometimes during your exams you will quit it and never come back.
Always be in a group of men rather than being in a group of boys. Be that guy who goes to the gym once in a week during their exams and is serious about his protein intake. Always remember when you enter the world of fitness it is long-term change it will never be short-term change.
2 Importance of Rest
If you are going to take a fitness lifestyle injuries are part of it that’s where the element of rest comes into play. Let’s start with the 3 important pillars of the rest. Listen to your body- if you are too tired on a particular day or if you are too sore on a particular day don’t go to the gym, sometimes taking a step back will pay you bigger in the long term.
Don’t take every set till failure it will lead to injuries – Explaining what failure means in simple terms is that when you are pumping up your body to that extent where it just goes numb and you can’t even push or pull that weight even further but you still try to pull or push that weight with the help of your friend or trainer that is what it means pushing it to the failure.
A pro tip for the best results in the gym use failure 3 to 4 sets per workout. Stop when you feel sharp pain or awkwardness in your body- This means guys that while working out if you feel some kind of snap or some kind of pain while pushing or pulling the weight stop your workout at that time consult with the trainer at the gym and don’t try to push yourself especially if you guys are having a one-sided pain while working out it is a very dangerous situation to be in.
3 Fitness Tips for Stretching and Massages
When you choose the lifestyle of fitness get serious about stretching and massages. This is something where a lot of teenagers tend to ignore this topic until they get injured or see their friend get injured.
Guys always remember when you are doing weight training there is a lot of damage you are doing to your muscles and as important as damages are for your power to grow it is essential to put your body in a position in order to recover optimally. A pro tip stretch at the end of the workouts- it helps to improve the overall flexibility of your body and relaxes your muscle towards the end of the workout.
Coming to the point of massages get some knowledge about sports massages usually in Indian metros you will find sports massage centers, this is very important because just massaging a single muscle or just pressing the single muscle it helps to increase the blood flow in that region it helps to relax the muscle and it releases the muscle. All this kind of massages is important to prevent long-term injuries.
4 Lower Body Training
This can be the best fitness tips that I am giving to you, from above all the points this is a very important point always train your legs and lower back guys. It doesn’t mean if you are not exposing your legs or lower back to the world doesn’t mean you will not train them. Always keep in mind if you are training only aesthetic point of view your legs are a big part of looking sexy.
Remember these guys a lot of girls will tell you the chicken legs are an automatic turn-off for most of them, but don’t always do it for your sexiness level train those areas for your overall strength and development When you train your legs and lower back your core is involved almost all the time.
A lot of strength is generated through your legs for example when you do heavy squats you are working at the core of your body and that strength has a huge carryover to the other muscle groups in your body. You will automatically increase your strength level when you guys will have strong legs and a strong lower back
5 Don’t Depend on Your Fitness Trainer Alone
The harsh reality of today’s fitness world is that Indian fitness trainers are just aren’t good enough to give you the right fitness tips, I am not saying it to everyone there are a lot of fantastic Indian trainers but the far majority of the trainers take up this fitness career only for the money-making aspect they are not passionate about the subject they don’t educate themselves in detail about the fitness subject. The main point that I want to explain is that always cross-check the form your fitness trainer has taught you with good blogs or through some good youtube videos.
I know many of my readers will think that their fitness trainer has the most perfect form and the most perfect education just to cross-check on multiple blogging sites as well as on youtube.
6 Always Say No to Steroids
One of the massive issues in the Indian fitness industry is the use of steroids. Many of the Indian trainers use steroids and they also promote it among Indian teenagers. This a very very wrong idea this is happening because of a lack of education among the Indian trainers. Please remember this guy’s teenage bodies aren’t built to consume steroids your hormone levels are all over the place in your body already, therefore, don’t use steroids. One of the drawbacks is that the moment you stop using steroids your body will stop showing results and will shrink to its normal size.
Unless you are a professional bodybuilder or a fitness model you can’t really use steroids. Always remember point number 1 which we have discussed you are chasing long-term fitness and not short-term growth or fitness. Especially if you are a teenager don’t go near steroids.
7 Exercise to Grow Taller
One of the most important factors in your teenage is your height. Is there an exercise that you will perform that will help you to improve your end height? The answer to your question is TADASAN it’s a yoga exercise that helps to stretch your spine. Remember just how basketball players in their teenage years do a lot of practice and their body responds by growing taller because it’s their body needs to go closer to the rim.
That is exactly how a regular TADASAN practice works. It is performed by stretching your body completely. Regular practice of TADASAN will help with your height but it will only make a difference if you perform it in the long term. Do 5 sets twice a day with 12 to 15 reps in each set.
Therefore coming to our last and final point of this blog which is for everyone irrespective of your age, fat percentage, or fitness level.
8 Everyone has to Start Somewhere
A lot of you guys don’t join a gym because you think that you’re either too skinny or too overweight or you’re just conscious about your body. Remember when you are a teenager it is that time of your life where you are conscious about yourself and about your looks and that is why a lot of people use this as some kind of excuse to not take up their fitness lifestyle.
A fitness lifestyle isn’t just going to the gym or not just going to a marathon it’s about creating a mental change. If you want to create mental change you have to step out of your comfort zone and step into your gym nobody is judging you all those muscular guys you see even if they have been in your position at some time in their life the only difference is that they stuck with it. Therefore guys stick with the process, continuously educate yourself, and finally get out of your comfort zone!
Go and apply these fitness tips to your daily lifestyle and tell us if it makes any improvement in yourself.
