WEEK 10 Train – Gaining strength

Key points:

  • Lifting weights will make you stronger
  • Strength gain means muscle gain
  • Muscle gain boots your metabolism which helps you lose more fat and get more firm and toned
  • In order to gain strength you need to:
    • Eat enough calories
    • Eat enough protein
    • Increase the weights you’re lifting
    • Get plenty of rest & sleep
    • Make good food choices
  • You might find it difficult to gain strength on a low calorie diet… but that’s OKAY
  • Muscle gain is also much slower than fat loss and takes MONTHS rather than weeks – have patience!
  • Focus on lifting a weight that challenges you but if it’s too easy, increase the weight but look at tempo/form first
