Counseling Self Esteem

Have you been working on building up your muscles? If you are like most people, you might not have been doing all you can to get those muscles where they need to be. Here are some simple tips that work for building muscle. Use them and you will see results.

Many trainers will advise you to change your workout routine every few months. You should however keep in mind that this is not necessary. If the routine that you are using is providing excellent results, then you should stick with it! Change your routine only if it is not giving you the results that you seek, or if you feel that you have gained most of the benefits from it.

When attempting to build muscle mass, it is important to ingest the right foods. If your efforts to add bulk are stagnating, it could be because you have an insufficient nutritional intake. To add bulk, you need to consume at least 4000-6000 calories each day from foods, which are calorie dense. Some examples of calorie-dense foods are pasta, nuts, eggs, bagels, trail mix and steaks. Since vegetables have low calorie-density, keep their intake to a minimum.

Plan out your routine properly. It is a good idea to work on only one or two specific muscle groups per day instead of jumping around. By doing this you will be able to give your muscles enough time to rest before you put them through another really exhausting workout session. Your muscles just need some time to heal.

You can decide at any time to really start building muscle. If you use the tips from this article, you are going to see a positive change in your physique. Work on building muscle and you will find that you like your body more, and that you feel healthier and stronger.

Have a great day!

Time Management: How To Prioritize Goals Fast

omnifocus-tips

Have you ever started your day with the intention of working on a specific project that was within the scope of your daily goals, and then discovered that the entire day had come and gone and you never got to it?

time-management

Perhaps it was an online project that you have been working on launching for weeks or months. Perhaps it was a simple chore that your wife had asked you to do the day prior. Whatever the task is, not having a enough time or not remembering the goal at hand happens to everyone at some time or another throughout life.

There is no one particular way that I am going to tell you to prioritize tasks with. You can label them however you want. For example, I prefer to have “A” tasks, then “B” tasks, etc. And within each task letter there may be several smaller goals that make up the entire job. On my list they will be labeled “A1” and “A2”, etc.

You must put your most urgent and important tasks first. In this case today my “A” goal is to do whatever it is that is most important, and with which would result in a very negative situation if I failed to do it. In other words, my most urgnent things to do are ones that have serious reprecussions if they were forogtten about.

An example would be my work requirements. Obviously I cannot go to the office and then play around on the computer all day, so I would label my main priorities in accordance with my work. I may get fired for this, or if I own my own business, I may loose my most profitable accounts if these “work requirements” are not adhered to.

By going further down the line, my D or E goals would be items that have little consequence if I missed them or not. Things like washing my car, checking my email, or phoning home to see what is for dinner. These are obviously not the most hard pressing items that I need to do, yet many times I have made the mistake of wasting time doing them, yet washing my car, making phone calls, checking emails, and browsing discussion groups could have been put off without any negative reprecussions.

Many people tend to get into the bad habit of putting off their bigger goals by doing the less meaningful tasks during the day. This leads to procrastination and then you wonder why you are not accomplishing your goals.

Set aside a lot of time to reach your major daily goals. Since most of our important projects or tasks can’t be completed in one sitting, you’ll make your life easier and reduce your stress level when you can work on them with plenty of lead time. You do a little now and a little later and before you know it – you’re done!

When attempting to build muscle mass, it is important to ingest the right foods. If your efforts to add bulk are stagnating, it could be because you have an insufficient nutritional intake. To add bulk, you need to consume at least 4000-6000 calories each day from foods, which are calorie dense. Some examples of calorie-dense foods are pasta, nuts, eggs, bagels, trail mix and steaks. Since vegetables have low calorie-density, keep their intake to a minimum.

Keep in mind the three most important exercises, and always include them into your workout program. They include dead lifts, squats and bench presses. This type of exercise will help you develop your bulk and strength as well as condition your body. For best results, include these exercises in each day’s workout.

Talk to your doctor about which supplements are safe for you. You may be able to enhance your muscle building efforts with creatine and other types of supplements, but you need to know if they are healthy for you to take. Taking supplements is something you need to discuss with a doctor so you can build muscle safely and in a healthy way.

Making short-term goals, attaining them, and then rewarding yourself for doing so, can be a great motivator. While long-term goals for muscle gain are important, it is sometimes hard to maintain motivation without shorter, and more quickly measured goals. Including rewards which actually benefit your muscle building routine is an even greater motivation! For instance, you can get an hour-long massage. Massages help you recover in between workouts, and they also improve blood circulation.

Take these tips and use them as a springboard to a healthier life with more muscles. You don’t have to be a bodybuilder to use these methods, but even bodybuilders can benefit from the information in this article. Build up those muscles and be proud of the results you attain.…
