Health Is About Habits
What's the secret to long-lasting health and fitness?
Well it's less about secrets and more about the habits you have and follow
You see everything we do is habit and we get into patterns subconsciously that will ultimately dictate your health, fitness and physique
The good news is you don't need a huge overhaul but just a few tweaks and you don't need to live a life over restriction and misery to be fit, healthy and lean
After working with hundreds of guys we've narrowed it down to 5 crucial things that we believe everyone can do will a little effort
Here are our top 5 habits of healthy men
1. They Exercise
Sounds obvious right? But most guys don't know where to start. The average commercial gym is boring and uninspiring and the fitness fanatics are telling you that you have to go everyday.
My advice would be find a training partner or group you can train with because going it alone is tough and then start with 3 times a week for 40-60 minutes.
Keep the intensity pretty high, focus on big total body movements and steer clear from the machines.
Most importantly make sure you are safe and effective by keeping your form solid
Once you've stayed consistent with this for a while maybe add another session but honestly most guys get great results from as little as 3 sessions a week and don't need more.
2. They Eat Right
Another obvious one. But what is eating right?
I'll keep it super simple and this is where 95% of people should start...
Take a look at your hand, this is now your portable measuring device
Shoot for 3-4 meals a day and eat the following foods in these amounts
Protein - 2 palm sized portions
Carbs - half a cupped handful
Fats - 1-2 thumbs sized portions
Veg - 2 fist sized portions
Water - 1 large glass of water with every meal as a minimum
Do this 80% of the time and you are well on your way
3. They Stretch
We spend too much time sitting and slouching and this has a knock on effect to the way we move and feel day to day.
Don't pass off aches and pains as just something you should put up with and that just happens as we get older
Here is a simple 10 minute stretch routine you can do that will have you feeling great in no time
4. They Get a Good Nights Sleep
Most of us walk through life with no energy, half asleep, or hyped up on the latest caffeine hit we just had
I’m pretty sure lack of sleep is probably to blame for the small bouts of depression and lows most of us feel every now and then
The best way to get a good nights sleep is to come up with a ritual or routine that helps you unwind and de-stress
5. They Are Consistent
Habit is all about consistency
It's normal for us to slip up from time to time and relax when it comes to our health and fitness but that shouldn't be an excuse to spiral out of control
Lifelong health and fitness isn't about perfection but about doing the right things most of the time.
Don't beat yourself up if you miss a gym session or divert from your nutrition plan, instead just wipe the slate clean and get back to it sooner rather than later
