No doubt at some stage in your fitness journey, you have asked one of these 5 questions, we as coaches get asked. It is almost daily, and with good reason too. There is so much content out there, that we thought we would do the same, but with out the BS.
So here are our TOP 5 TRAINING QUESTIONS
1: Will Bread Make me FAT?
The Answer is……..If you over indulge, do not train and become a slob. Then YES!!!!! But Bread is not the root cause of obesity. The root cause is that you may not be an active person, or live a very sedentary lifestyle. If that is the case, then eating bread may not be the very best option for you:
2. Is Training all about the genetics?
Depending on who you are, then yes it can be. But not in the way you think. Then changes people make to their bodies will depend on who you are and what you are mad up of. There are various types of body shapes (Ectomorph= Lean and mean, Mesomorph= Athletic build and Endomorph= Big and bulky) If you are an Ectomorph and wanting to look like Kai Greene the bodybuilder, then I suggest maybe altering your goal that maybe more in the realm of who you are. Yes you can take some supplements that may help you do that, but the dangers of doing that far out weigh the rewards in our opinion.
3. What Diet Should I be on?
The Easiest way to answer this. what ever makes you feel good is the nutrition pattern to follow. Now you will get people saying, Our ancestors ate primal (Meat and fruit and seeds and that is what you should eat) and yes that is true and to some degree there is a lot of success to this, however we as humans have evolved and so has our need for various food forms. Now I am not saying Primal diet does not work. Far from it, it has great success, but it is not the only diet to follow.
Also depending on your ethnic make up will depend on what you eat. No way will some one from Thailand, eat a meat and raw diet. They would look at you blankly.
So if you want to get the best nutrition pattern that works for you, then go see a nutritionist who can help direct you down a pathway to success. But also the food has to be congruent with your training style. So make sure you express that with them.
4. What is the Best Exercise to lose the fat off the Stomach?
The key phrase here is “lose the fat off the stomach”. No exercise will do this. However some exercises are terrific for developing a stronger core so you can do more complex movements such as deadlifting, sprinting, squatting and jumping. If you really want to lose the stomach fat then follow some of these guidelines:
Cut out refined sugar (white sugar) from your diet
Drop the drink (Alcohol)
Eat less processed food (shit that comes out of a can or bottle)
Eat more veggies and round fruits
Do more High Intensity Interval Training (have you ever seen a fat Sprinter?)
5. The Difference between High Intensity Training and Low Intensity Training?
Aside from the name, it is the time it takes to get the desired result. HIT is great for people who time starved and need to workout quick. LIT is great for people who don’t like to get their heart rate high and have a heap of time to train.
So what is better. That is like saying who came first. The Chicken or the egg? Both work, it just comes down to what you like to do. here at the House, we are 100% full throttle High Intensity. Nothing we do is low intensity and it was what we love to do.
So there you go. The top 5 things we get asked as coaches. The funny thing is that it is not hard for us to answer as the answers are just plain common sense. Fitness is not a complicated process, however we as humans have made things more complicated. Just keep it simple and you will get there.
