Yeah, we all know wearing sweaty gym clothes isn’t the best way to smell your best but is it really that bad of a habit? This is one of the questions I get asked the most. Usually, it’s in a flip kind of way. The guy will say “It’s gross, but not really that bad, right?” with a chuckle. At first, I didn’t take it as a question. After hearing it dozens (maybe hundreds) of times, I’m thinking that this isn’t just a joke but a question too embarrassing to ask in the usual way.
A lot of guys have been asking me about how I build muscle not fat. It sounds like a question with an obvious answer. You work out, right? Do some strength training, bro! Actually, there’s more to it than that. Anyone who has actually tried to bulk up knows that if the only thing you do is go to the gym and start lifting weights, you will only get so far – and it won’t be nearly as far as you want to be.
There are a lot of people who like to work out on an empty stomach. They all have their own reasons for doing it. Some people like getting up, putting on their shoes, and heading out for a run before doing anything else. Others believe that it benefits them in one way or another. I don’t.
In my blog last week, I talked about how I experienced some lock down weight gain and how I wanted to give my workout more energy in several ways. This week, I’m talking more on the subject of the pounds I gained and what I’m doing about it on the whole other than focusing on my workouts.
