How To Track Your Workouts To Keep Getting Stronger

Here’s The Best Way To Track Your Workouts So You Can Keep Getting Stronger And Build More Muscle

When it comes to building muscle and sculpting a leaner, healthier, stronger body, you need to workout. But that’s not enough. You’ll need to get progressively stronger over time, as well. So knowing how to track your workouts is important. After all, if you don’t track anything, how will you ever know if you’re improving? So in this article, you’ll discover why and how to track your workouts in the best way possible.

“What gets measured gets managed.” Ever heard that before? A famous phrase from Peter Drucker.

Track your weight and other key measurements and you can objectively judge how much progress you’re making. They’re all very logical approaches, right?

So what exactly is the best way to track your workouts? Let’s dive in to the Why, What, and How and get you the answers you need.

The Top 5 Nutrition Myths Stopping You Losing Weight

The Story Of How I Lost 6kg In 4 Weeks By Busting 5 Of The Most Common Nutrition Myths

Despite the efforts of science and the evidence-based community, nutrition myths prevail. Deceit, lies, and misinformation are used to make a quick buck. The truth, cast aside, along with any notion of genuinely helping you achieve your goals.

Right now, you don’t know which way to turn. You don’t know who to believe. Who to trust. Or what to do when it comes to losing weight.

You’ve cut carbs because the Keto guy made you panic about insulin.

You’ve starting Intermittent Fasting, even though you love breakfast. But hey, some gimp said, “research shows” a lot in an article, so you figured it MUST be true.

And now you’ve banned animal products. All because social media scaremongering convinced you meat and dairy cause cancer.

And let’s not get started on clean eating. Scrubbing your broccoli with bleach didn’t turn out to be the best idea.

But still the weight doesn’t shift. You’re trying everything, but nothing’s working. And you’ve hit a brick wall.

Here’s the thing.

In this article, you’re going to discover the real truth about these 5 common nutrition myths that are stopping you losing weight:

  • Carbs are the primary driver of weight loss, not energy balance.
  • You can’t diet near to (or below) BMR, because you’ll lose muscle.
  • Cardio is essential for weight loss.
  • You can’t lose weight eating processed and refined foods.
  • Eating late at night (carbs especially) prevents weight loss.

It’s time to take control of your weight loss, and make dieting great again.
