Positive Thoughts Promote A Good Body

Maxed Out Muscles

Just by having positive thoughts, you can have a better chance at getting that physique you want. More than likely, if you keep your mind positive and follow up with good diet and workouts, you will achieve your physique goals.

Why is this so? Because, simply by thinking positive you are avoiding body dismorphia. I’m not saying you should stop eating right and exercising, but a lot of people struggle with beating themselves up when the scale doesn’t say what they want it to or they think in their minds that they look chubbier one day.

The truth is something like that could be caused by water retention or gained muscle. Simply stick to your diet and exercise, and don’t stress. Stay positive! There’s no better way to be.

After all, you want to enjoy every step of the way towards your end results. Whether it be bigger arms, six…

Build The Virtues Associated With Giving It Your All

Maxed Out Muscles

No matter what you’re doing with your life right now, give it your all! That may sound cliche but if you never go all in you may never find out how far you can go with something, or how truly incredible your accomplishments are.

Along the way, you may learn that achieving your goals requires you to become more committed. You may learn that you have to become the type of person who has to commit, and finish what he/she starts, and take the ridicule and torment others try to drive your way and use it for fuel. You may need to learn to be strong, independent, self-accountable, and determine.

Whatever your end result is, if you learn something and become a better person through the experience then you are truly gaining something in life. That may just be my opinion but it’s the truth.

I have a challenge for…

Backstory To Becoming A Warrior

Maxed Out Muscles

Before I started on a journey of self-improvement and fitness, I was timid and always so stressed and self-conscious. I remember being a shy kid at first who just wanted to have friends, who made them mostly by convenience and then had the same friends through grade school.

Having what I’d say is a bad friend and a bad family member led me to learn there are three things that made me grow the most as a person and ultimately become a warrior.

  1. This friend was an obstacle placed in my life for me to overcome. It was my responsibility to cut ties and have confidence in myself.
  2. The family member, sad to say my own mother, was always bringing stress into my life which led to a lot of Crohn’s Disease flare ups and problems. Dropping her from my life and choosing to do my very best to move…

Don’t Ignore Naysayers, Laugh At Them

Maxed Out Muscles

Let’s say you’ve gotten into working out and one day you’re hanging out with a large group of friends, and a friend or friend of a friend says something about your weird body shape and tries to make fun of you. How do you react?

You may have thought to yourself that this kind of behavior would make you upset or angry. That’s understandable because they are being rude, but look outside the box for a moment. Think to yourself, why would they take the time to single me out and cut me down? Simply, so they can bring themselves up.

These people can only bring themselves up by trying to bring you down, so now that you know you’re dealing with someone who has serious self esteem issues you can laugh at them. They’re so pathetic, it’s funny, and you are better than them.

Keep doing the things you…
