The Fitness Plan For That Movie Star Body That Will Never Happen.
Updated: Nov 1, 2022
The fitness routine in the gym and meal plan for that Hollywood body with a six pack, rock hard triceps and an arse as curvy as Kim Kardashian...
After years of personal training at my studio in Grimsby, I have really got to understand why men and women struggle so much with achieving their "perfect" body.
Salma Hayek - 54yrs
My Top 7 Reasons Why Men & Women Fail With Their Body Goals Are:
1. Body Goals. Giving yourself unrealistic goals of what you are wanting to look like is setting you up to fail from the start. For all you ladies out there wanting to look like Hollywood movie star Salma Hayek or you blokes wanting to look like Dwain Johnson then I have some bad news...it isn't going to happen for 99.9% of you.
Dwain Johnson trains 3/4 times a day. Unrealistic for most working people.
2. Consistency. It has maybe been 2, 10, 15 or 25 years of not exercising and not eating correctly. Why do you expect to drop 3 dress sizes when you start your meal plan every Monday, do a class Monday and Tuesday, weigh yourself naked after the toilet on Wednesday morning then give up when you haven't lost any weight. It can take months or years to get to where you want to be.
There is no such thing as a bad food.
3. Don't understand your daily calorie allowance. First of all you need to work out roughly how many calories you are allowed based on your TDEE (Total Daily Energy Expenditure). There are various calorie calculators on the internet to help you. Once you get this figure then drop it by 15-20% to create a calorie deficit for fat loss or add 15-20% for muscle building. No food is bad for you. Don't cut out your favourite foods just cut down on the high calorie ones.
4. Getting fit. This doesn't mean you have to take up running. Running isn't the best thing to get you fit. The best exercise to get you fit is the one you stick to. There is no point in going running in the winter, knees hurting and you can't stand it just because crazy Karen next door runs 3 marathons a week and is 6 stone. You are not crazy Karen.
