Hacks are great, because they’re kind of life shortcuts, or easier ways to
achieve your goal, and still look amazing.
The one aspect I’ve never seen hack post on, gym or fitness
Today, we’re gonna go over seven fitness hacks you can do to bump up your
The first gym fitness, or healthy lifestyle hack is, you should never eat
out of the original container.
This is the worst mistake I see guys make.
They open a bag of chips and just eat the whole bag.
The problem is that, first you don’t know how many calories you’re in
And, that’s usually how people slowly start getting more overweight.
They don’t know what they’re putting into their body.
Second, when you’re eating out of the original container before you know it,
you’re already at the bottom, because you are watching Netflix.
The best thing you can do is always pour out yourself a serving size amount,
look at the calories in the back.
That way, you can track what you’re eating, but also, it’s gonna limit you.
Once you’re done with that serving size, you’re done.
You don’t have the whole bag to keep feeding your face.
Consume Amino Acids
The second hack you can do, is to take amino acids as you work out.
BCAAs, or branched chain amino acids are essential amino acids your body doesn’t
produce naturally, and you need them these are essential during working out.
Because, it’ll lead to less muscle fatigue and less muscle soreness helping
you boost quicker recovery times.
The benefit, it helps you maintain your intensity longer as you work out,
which of course will boost your gains at the long run, the harder you train.
Good Posture Practice
Number three, this is more like of a posture one, but when you’re driving
tilt your rear-view mirror up just a bit, just high enough.
So, you can sit upright and practice good posture.
I know, it’s a simple hack but this little effort is gonna force you to sit
Build a stronger core and remove any sort of hunchback you might have from
slouching and hunching over constantly.
The fourth fitness act you can do is to brush your teeth early at night.
When we have the freest time is when the temptations creep in and you want
to hit the refrigerator to eat your face out.
The bad part is that, if you’ve already met your calories.
This is when you start eating at surplus and you start gaining weight.
What you can do and a little hack.
What i would do is, brush your teeth early.
What it does is, it will basically trick your mind and deter you from
wanting to eat because your mind is going into sleeping mode.
Plus, who’s gonna want to repress your teeth.
So, usually when you brush your teeth you’ll probably be too lazy to eat
anything and brush again.
It’ll stop you from eating, because your mind will feel, I’m going to sleep,
I don’t need any food right now.
High Bass Music
So, now the fifth fitness act you can do is to listen to music as you work
out, especially music with a lot of bass.
One study showed that, blasting music as you’re trained can be great because
it kind of distracts your brain from bodily awareness.
But, this is the good kind of distraction that takes your mind off the
exhaustion and exertion.
Your muscles are putting into whatever workout you’re doing.
Now your mind isn’t thinking about how tired it is, it’s mostly amped up
because of the music you’re listening to.
And, the study found that athletes can perform up to 15 percent better, when
they’re listening to music.
Mirror On The Wall
The sixth fitness hack you can do is to work out in front of a mirror.
I think, here it’s okay to be a little bit narcissistic and standing in
front of a mirror and look at yourself as you work out.
If you don’t have a fitness partner, or somebody to go along with you, and
you’re going by yourself, this is the best way for you to check your form.
Make sure you’re using good posture, and you’re getting full extension on
all your movement.
Then you can micro correct anything you’re doing wrong and maximize your
Plus, when you see yourself all jacked up and veiny in front of the mirror,
let’s not be kidding ourselves.
You’re gonna get pumped up and you’re gonna work a little bit harder as well.
Make Your Way Up
Finally, number seven make sure you increase your weights gradually.
So, no you’re not gonna be making fifty-pound increment jumps all the time,
when you hit the gym, maybe initially.
But, it’s will get to a point that you’re gonna feel stagnant.
Or, there’s some people that just use the same repetitive weight over and repeatedly,
just because they’re in a routine.
That’s never gonna help you increase your muscle mass.
Make sure, that every week, every two weeks may be, set a goal for yourself
you increase the weight on a specific movement.
Make sure you track it as well and it could be marginal.
If you’re progressively overloading your muscles, it’s gonna help you grow
Another way you could do that is by adding more reps.
So, if you’re maybe too scared of adding a lot of weight, then add more reps.
If you were only doing eight, try nine this time, or try to go for 10 or 12.
The point is always push yourself and set new goals.
And that’s basically it for me in today’s video guys
Those are the top seven gym hacks you can do to just maximize your gains.
