3 Shocking Facts To Boost Your Muscle Building Hormone

You are impatient and you want to gain muscle.

So you try all kinds of supplements and tips.

You eagerly order new shining magic pills each time, hoping that those will finally give your body that small but valuable upgrade.

 

But none appear to be as magic as promised.

Even worse, that upgrade you are looking for never happens.

Rather they are downgrading your results. You end up fat.

And broke.

 

You aren’t doing your body any good with these weight gainers or extra boosters for muscle growth.

One week you try to use product X, the next few weeks you focus on product Y and Z.

It makes you wonder.

And you aren’t the only one. Stop wasting your time on things that don’t work. Instead start with focusing on what your body can do naturally.

That’s where you will find a real solution. That’s where the magic happens.

Calisthenics For Beginners: The Ultimate Guide

You’ve discovered calisthenics.

Exciting, isn’t it?

Training with just your body weight. Actually it’s a combination of several different elements: Skill, strength and flexibility.

And if you’re looking for a healthier, stronger and more muscular body then calisthenics is a MUST.

 

For a long time in history, people did nothing other than calisthenics. Those days are long gone. 

Make no mistake: Working out with weights definitely works. But in a lot of cases it’s not nearly as effective as training with your own body weight.

Becoming a master at calisthenics requires a serious investment (motivation, time and sweat).

 

Why?

Because high level skills require a lot of time to learn. And going from no activity to doing handstands or chin ups isn’t easy. 

But when you understand how calisthenics works, the rewards are HUGE: the world becomes your gym and your body becomes stronger and more capable than you could have ever imagined.

Improve your calisthenics workouts with these books

2 Essential Books To Improve Your Calisthenics Workouts

When you want to develop a new skill, what do you do?

Do you just try, or do you look for people who have done it before?

Do you ask for advice?

Or do you just despair at the gap between what you want to do an what you actually can do?

 

Most of us are unhappy with what we look like and with what we can do.

We feel demotivated. Incomplete. Not good enough.

That is if we just keep looking at those on the other side. Like the young kid ‘leaning against the window’ with the dream to become a pilot as he watches big airplanes disappear in the clouds.

 

Instead of looking, start reading.

Instead of being demotivated, start asking.

Instead of thinking you aren’t genetically gifted, start realising that as long as you have a beating hart, there is something to learn.

How? Start by reading these books.  (more…)

The Biological Hack For Optimal Training Time

Training is a battle.

A war against your own physical and mental limitations.

Your biggest enemy? The amount of excuses you can come up with.

This battle isn’t one for the weak. The naïve. The impatient.

 

You’ll need to embrace the pain of being a beginner again. New challenges. New routines. New soreness.

But none of those things matter if you don’t train at all.

So before you go further down the rabbit hole of calisthenics training, you better make sure you know what the best time is to do so.

 

The key?

Knowing how your body responds to the time at which you train, is something you must learn.

The battlefield is right in front of you and you have the opportunity to write the heroes’ story.

So when you enter the calisthenics arena, arm yourself with this knowledge.

And keep fighting the good fight.

Everybody is counting on you. (more…)
