Growing up, I will always remember my favorite action figure… Whether or not you were into Superhero’s, my bet is you can remember what your favorite toy was too. Here was mine:
That right there is Gambit from X-Men. I remember liking him for three reasons:
- He was tall (my dad is tall)
- He was very muscular but not like the hulk. More of that “athletic muscular.”
- He had killer abs.
See, even though I was only 5 or 6 years old, I was already starting to wonder how to get a physique like this. A “Superhero Physique” as I now call it.
Yet, it wasn’t until years later when I actually started studying this stuff and seeing REAL results that I understood exactly WHY people build super lean bodies.
In this short article today, I’d like to cover three different very overlooked aspects when it comes to getting that lean, athletic look.
And the best part is, it works for anyone! Take a look:
1) It all starts with the hormones.
Hormones are something that don’t get talked about a ton but are vitally important. They are the driving force behind the body you see in the mirror.
If you produce the right hormones, your body will thrive. If not, your body will suffer.
There is a reason that America is approaching 70% overweight. The signals that people send their body through the food they eat and exercise they do is detrimental… And it shows.
If you want to start changing your body, it starts with your hormones. And NO, not through supplementation. This is done through living a healthy lifestyle, eating the right foods, and exercising consistently.
We will discuss more on hormones in a future email…
2) Your workouts need to be fast and powerful.
Why are all Superhero Bodies and athletes super lean and defined? Because they train them to be that way.
They train for speed, power, explosiveness, strength, etc.
When you look at the most lean individuals in the WORLD, they fall into one of four categories:
- Power Lifters
And athletes would sum this up best as they do all of these in their workout routines.
3) Lifestyle changes need to be made.
The days of getting 3-5 hours of sleep a night and stressing 24/7 are over. Going on little sleep and stressing a bunch doesn’t make you a Superhero these days.
Little sleep is the norm. Stress is the norm. That’s why YOU need to be different…
Sleep, stress, and lack of motivation are three of the biggest aspects holding you back right now from getting the body you’ve always wanted.
About a year ago, I was dedicated to losing an extra 2% body fat in a short 4-week period. I knew I could do it, yet there was one problem…
I was extremely stressed and sleeping about 4 hours a night.
Needless to say, I ended up gaining about 1% body fat because of this, even though everything else was right on par.
Lifestyle changes all go back to hormones. If you can eliminate stress and get good, consistent slew each night, your body will naturally produce the right hormones for you to burn tons of fat.
Once I got help in eliminating stress and started getting better sleep, that 2% body fat I wanted to lose seemed to melt off. Yes, proper sleep and less stress are that important.
I’ve got some exciting stuff coming up in these next few days so be sure to stay tuned for that.
In the meantime, do yourself a favor and go check out what it REALLY takes to get that Superhero Body you have always wanted. [3 simple steps]
