Make it easy

In­crease your chances of win­ning in ev­ery im­por­tant area of your life by fo­cus­ing on the sim­ple things that, when done well, act as a spring­board to suc­cess

Men's Fitness - - News -

Build­ing lean mus­cle is sim­ple. Yep, and the same goes for los­ing fat. Sim­ple. In both cases, it’s about do­ing the ba­sic things right: fol­low a chal­leng­ing and pro­gres­sive train­ing plan based on lift­ing weights or high-in­ten­sity in­ter­val train­ing, then eat more qual­ity pro­tein and cut back on sugar, booze and re­fined carbs. Get enough sleep each night and you’ll make ma­jor changes to how you look with­out your clothes on.

Of course, just be­cause some­thing’s sim­ple doesn’t mean it’s easy. That’s why in ev­ery is­sue of MF we stress the im­por­tance of plan­ning and prepa­ra­tion to give you the great­est chance of suc­cess – what­ever your am­bi­tion. This is per­fectly ex­plained in our 7 Rules Of Mus­cle fea­ture (p87), be­cause once you know the es­sen­tial el­e­ments of any ef­fec­tive mus­cle-mass plan you can put them into prac­tice, and then make smart ad­just­ments to keep the gains com­ing.

Re­mem­ber: with­out a plan, build­ing a bet­ter body – or any other per­sonal or pro­fes­sional goal – is im­pos­si­ble to achieve. Af­ter all, it doesn’t mat­ter how hard you keep push­ing, day af­ter day and month af­ter month, if you’re not headed in the right di­rec­tion.

Do­ing the sim­ple things right is the quick­est and eas­i­est way to im­prove ev­ery area of your life
