The “Best” Fitness Program Of All Time
Posted by Michael Vacanti
This is a goofy picture.
But I am actually in a serious mood.
I get a lot of emails.
Most of them are people asking for “tips”
- Is paleo the best diet?
- What’s the best arm exercise?
- Can you give me the best training split?
- What’s the best food to lose fat?
You guys… it all works.
This article is for 96% of people (excluding elite athletes and folks with medical issues).
It is for those of us, including myself, who want to get leaner, stronger, and healthier; we don’t need the “best” plan.
We need to actually do the plan.
How To Get The “Best” Fitness Results Ever
Nutrition must be aligned with your goal
Calorie deficit for fat loss
Some produce every day
Or at the very least, get adequate protein
Drink lots of water
Train like you want to kill your ex-girlfriend’s new boyfriend
Actually train with intensity
Do some compound movements
Sleep and recover
Practice progressive overload (add weight or sets/reps over time)
Any decent program will do
Personally, I have made crazy progress on John’s program and Greg’s program and my own programs… I even got abs in college doing p90x which most people in the fitness industry would deem a “shitty program”
Don’t lie to yourself
Don’t pretend 30 day “transformation” pictures are real
Listen to coaches, trainers, and doctors you trust
Pay attention to who gives you information and what that person’s motivation is
When you fall off the wagon, jump back on quickly
And most importantly, stop using “best” program research to delay actually doing the work.
