8 tricks from Mark Wahlberg’s training
Trick # 1: start
Mark says don’t put it off until tomorrow. You have to do it today or you keep putting it off. After lockdown, join a gym, go for a walk, take a class, or whatever you want – but you have to do it now.
Trick # 2: Establish a baseline
Go to the mirror and snap some pictures of what you look like now. Make a note of your measurements and use this as a basis to set realistic goals that you want to achieve. With the help of apps, you can track and record your progress even more easily. (Also read: Health apps are more popular than ever. Here are our 5 favorites)
Trick # 3: Stop making excuses
This only concerns you. So stop making excuses and cheating on your diet and routines.
Trick # 4: Think of Diet as Fuel
Think about what you want to achieve. Food is not just a taste, it is also what gives you the energy you need and can help you burn fat.
Trick # 5: listen to your body
It’s not about exercising until you destroy your body. You have to listen to what he tells you. Exercise hard when you can and rest when you need to – it’s a requirement for building muscle.
Trick # 6: Don’t forget to add variety
This will keep you motivated and make the exercises more fun. It also prevents you from getting stuck and not making any progress.
Trick # 7: Surround yourself with healthy alternatives
Don’t bring junk food home. They will be available when you have access and the opportunity to do so. So consciously avoid temptation and stock the refrigerator with healthy options. (Likewise: These unhealthy foods will cut your life by years, according to experts)
Trick # 8: Celebrate the beginning and be proud of your progress
Getting started is the hardest part, so celebrate progress even if you started with something very small. Be proud of small successes – these will bring you closer to your goal little by little.
