I think by now we’re aware that there are different ways of achieving our goals.
Yes, that means there’s not just one standard for losing weight and fat and gaining weight and muscle. It just doesn’t work that way.
Not just that, but everyone of us has a different body composition. Finding a routine that’s right for you is crucial for success. That’s why it’s essential that you define your goals before even getting started.
What’s the Differences?
It’s pretty straight forward, but there are clearly a ton of different goals you could have. Each one of which, like I previously stated, have different ways of achieving them.
For example, each one of the following will have different methods:
- Losing Weight vs. Losing Fat
- Gaining Muscle vs. Gaining Weight
- Gaining Muscle vs. Losing Weight
- Losing Fat vs. Gaining Weight
Okay, and obviously you can just keep combining different goals with one another and it will just become more apparent that it’s all different.
You can’t just use one blanket outline and expect to be able to do it all.
We’ve obviously seen a ton of different actors who use different diets and routines. That much is obvious. But, another thing that is obvious is the fact that the majority of them have different body types. That’s one of the reasons the Workout Database is separated into different body-type goals.
For someone who wants to stay lean and cut they may use intermittent fasting combined with cyclical ketosis and low carbs.
For someone who wants to bulk up a bit while staying lean they may use an intermittent fasting approach similar to Hugh Jackman (made for him by The Rock!).
And lastly, for someone who wants to gain WEIGHT (or mass, assuming they’ll be working out hard), they might use some calorie counting (macros included), to stay above their numbers.
Of course things vary and certain people might do better with adding certain things elsewhere (for example SuperHuman Fuel could be utilized in nearly every plan). It all seems pretty simple when it’s thrown out like that, but unless it’s broken down it can become a nightmare. But, luckily you have it there for you, and now the next step becomes finding the right plan.
Honestly, I used to add in different routines into different segments when discussing something in this nature (right into the post), but we’ve grown to have so many different routines that the best thing I can do is send you right to the Workout Database.
It’s literally broken up into different segments for you.
I tried my best to make it as simple as possible for this exact reason.
That being said, choosing the right routine is still part of the steps. A routine is also crucial to your success, as each one is made for different goals.
Someone who is trying to lose weight is going to do something much different than someone who is trying to gain pure mass. Different rep counts and schemes all come into play when changing our body composition.
Regardless of what superhero body-type your goal is, each one involves incorporating a good workout, proper nutrition, and the perfect amount of drive to succeed.
That at least can be said of any routine, if we need to make a blanket statement for something!
