We all have goals we’d like to achieve and flaws we’d like to fix. Many of us work hard to achieve these goals, but sometimes the changes on our bodies don’t match the look we were going for. People, all the time ask questions like: “How can I get skinnier?” or, “What can I do to help grow my legs/booty?”. These are very normal questions, and indicate a targeted focus on one’s goals. But even with laser focus, we can still have trouble getting there. However, we have one easy key that can help you get your desired body type!
In this case, there’s a very simple concept that, once understood, can apply to almost any physical goal one can have. So what’s the secret? Simply look to the people who are always performing a specific exercise for their job, mainly athletes. This will show you the far end of the spectrum where someone is doing a specific exercise as much as possible without getting injured. That repeated practice & hard training will force the body to adapt as much as possible, that can’t go unnoticed! When you notice these body differences, it becomes clear what the exercise of their sport is doing for them. So let’s apply this concept with a few examples…
A common goal for many is to lose weight and really slim down. So for this goal, we seek professional athletes who have distinctly slimmer bodies than most. So the key is to incorporate more of those athletes’ lifestyles into your training, so more time on the bike, running or swimming. Now that may seem pretty obvious, but let’s look at another goal that may not be as clear.
Another common goal is for bigger, more defined legs. Again, there’s no career for a large behind, accept for a few surgically modified celebrities. However, we can find inspiration on the track again, but this time, in the 100 meter sprint. If you look up Olympic 100m sprinters, you’ll notice exceptionally well-defined legs. This is because they need to move such a large mass (their bodies), and as fast as possible from a dead stop. Those demands place great stress on the lower body, giving those muscles no choice but to grow strong & lean! So for this goal, work sprints into your routine; also consider working in hill sprints and sled pushes, all are training styles of Olympic sprinters, and all will give you those powerful legs you’re after!
These are just 2 common examples, but generally speaking, this concept can apply to nearly any physical transformation goal. The reason we suggest this key is because everyone is different, everyone had a different routine & certain exercises will cause a large affect in one person and small affect in the next. However, professional athletes will always have certain body type they all share in common. Now, we’re not saying to start competing in the Olympics, but simply tap into the training routines of these athletes a little by incorporating their exercises into your regular workouts to achieve the changes you want to see.
