Lean Body Blueprint

Picture this: You’ve finally found a weight loss plan that works. You start seeing results and you begin think that nothing can stop you now.

Unfortunately, this is the fatal flaw most people make when it comes to getting a lean & fit body. They’ll get some initial results following a plan, but they never really think about what happens AFTER they lose weight.

Most people don’t realize that losing weight is only half the battle. You can’t just “stop” once you hit your weight loss goal. If you go back to doing what you were doing before, and you’ll surely end up right back to where you started!

5 Ways to Stay Fit and Healthy during Ramadan

The holy month of Ramadan has started. This month requires our Muslim brothers to abstain from eating food, drinking, and doing a number of other behavioral, leisure, and pleasurable habits from sunrise to sunset. While the latter is a rather easy thing to do, abstinence from food and drink is where usually the struggle begins, especially during the first few days of Ramadan.

Fasting tests and enhances the endurance levels of your body and eating healthy food and having a work out regimen additionally helps strengthen and shape your body. I'm a non-Muslim but since I've been living in the UAE, I practise abstinence as a sign of respect to our Muslim brothers. I've also been in the fitness industry for years now, so I've come up with these 5 ways for staying fit and healthy which will hopefully help ease the challenges one may be faced with during Ramadan.

Lifting Weights for Weight Loss

Controlling your diet is the key to losing weight and fat; there’s no doubt about that. But if you want to achieve maximum changes in your body composition—gain lean muscles and burn more body fat—weight training is also essential along with clean eating.

Lifting Weights for Weight Loss

Aside from making you stronger, weight training also boosts the metabolism and builds lean muscles, which in turn will speed up weight loss.

Workout of the Day: Bicep Workout

Regardless of what you're wearing, biceps are the most noticeable among the different muscle groups. And admit it, a pair of massive arms make you look strong. If you have nicely developed arms, people are going to know that you're always on top of your workout game. Besides, who doesn't want to have pumped guns, right?

Below are three workout routines which I personally do to pump up my biceps. The key to building those massive arms is to not cut short the execution and movement of each routine. And if you're aiming for maximum size, lifting heavy should be your priority.

So go ahead, try these bicep curl routines and get your curls done. Bicep curls, that is. Because curls are not just for girls!

Workout of the Day: Chest Workout

A workout that will add inches to your chest is essential to having a well-defined chest.

If you are focusing on the wrong exercises and number of reps, building a powerful chest can be a challenge. But note that these are just merely challenges. If you're a beginner, you can focus on lifting safely with light weight and proper form.

Once you become stronger, you can start implementing varying sets, weights, and reps. The routine that I made below is a perfect starting point. Try these sculpting moves to grow pecs worthy of a superhero!
