Hi again, it is Marc from Never Quit. Yesterday in Part 1 I talked about general myths and illusions regarding the beach body. In this new post we go more into details and give recommendations for food and for fitness plans with my favorite exercises.
70% of reaching the dream body is created in the kitchen. Have breakfast like an emperor, lunch like a king and dinner like a begging monk – it roughly says it all.
A substantial breakfast with fruits, whole-grain bread, turkey breast, marmalade and water is very important because here lays the energy fundament for the day.
A snack between breakfast and lunch is also important. Recommendation: a small cup of peanut butter and an apple.
For lunch it should already be a little less but still a handful of rice, whole-grain pasta or potatoes with veggies and meat, fish or tofu is always right. Salad as a side dish is always great. (more…)
Let me introduce you a former pro-athlete, personal trainer and founder of Never Quit: Marc Nielsen. I train with Marc for a while and knowing how worried me and my friends can be when the time comes to leave the winter covers away, it seemed to be obvious to ask his advice. Read what he tells us about:
BEACH BODY BOOST
By Marc Nielsen
Last week at the gym it stroked again. The first rays of spring sunshine heat up the Earth and people’s synapses crash just like every spring. The perfect beach-body has to come fast because it’s only a few more weeks until shorts and little summer dresses. Hysteria settles. The question is what to do?
Only to go fast a couple of times running or signing a 24-month gym-contract is not the deal. When one Sunday there is nothing in my fridge and I rush to get something to eat to the nearest gas station I pay extra because I want it fast. To be able to get a beach body within a very short time is an illusion, fuelled by the media. It’s like playing soccer for two weeks and thinking you will be able to join the next FIFA World Cup. It is simply impossible.
Nevertheless we want to help you to gain a healthy and fit start into the new summer, and even more: with our tips you will become fitter, healthier, slimmer and get in better shape than ever before.
