Join a martial art. I joined Capoeira and the workouts are killer >.< Boxing is also really good for strength training, swimming is probably the best
and healthiest form of exercise. Only problem is that not everyone has access to a pool or lake, whereas a martial art or boxing can be practiced
My classes were 1 hour twice a week, so I wasn't even hardcore working out everyday, but even after 6 months I could see changes in my physique. Arms,
thighs, chest were bigger. Face was leaner.
We did everything from 1500 pushups, to endless wall-sits, to doing hand stand pushups, tons and tons of squats, lots and lots of stretching, lots of
plank exercises, it's killer but oh so worth it! I also got into weight lifting.
For eating, if you're gonna do a hard workout you want to eat at least 2-3 hours before your workout. Otherwise you're going to be in a lot of pain.
Even chugging a protein shake prior to a workout will make you not feel that great. So yeah, try to eat as long before your workout without being
hungry during your workout.
Fresh fruit is awesome! I feel like you can never eat enough fresh fruit. Rice and Beans are really great for filling you up with energy. Bananas are
great to go, and walnuts with bananas give you the rights amount of vitamins and minerals when eaten together and it tastes great too. Baked chicken
is also really good, you don't want to eat anything that's been fried or has lots of oil. No more greasy Chinese food in your diet. No more Chorizo
Quesadillas, haha. Fruits nuts and vegetables are best. Even though it doesn't taste good if you don't want to eat meat in your diet, because red meat
is terrible for you, quinoa is the highest protein-packed grain food, with the right balance of amino acids your body needs.
