My first tip of the #howtogetlean series is to resistance train 3-5 times per week.
Make sure you're focusing on the bigger, more bang for your buck exercises such Squats, deadlifts, Horizontal presses, vertical presses, Chin ups/pull ups and Horizontal rowing.
I see a lot of people trying to fill their gym sessions with lots of isolation exercises thinking that they need to 'feel' their muscle working.
Whilst a mind/muscle connection certainly helps develop muscle tissue it's secondary to progressive overload.
Who do you think will be the person in better overall shape?
The person performing lots of Tricep pushdowns or the person who is progressively getting stronger on push ups, bench press, shoulder presses and other compound exercises.
I'll give you one guess.... Isolation work certainly has a place but it should be the icing on the cake of a well written programme.
