Are you doing enough to lose weight and build muscle

are you doing enough to lose weight

How do you know if what you are doing is enough to lose weight and transform your body?

I often get asked by clients if the training program they’ve been given is enough as it often looks like a small amount of work.

They are normally expecting some super complex training system as they’ve tried ‘normal’ training before.

Or they are completely new to training and want to be smashing it from the start.

The truth is that ‘enough’ is relative.

Someone just starting out with no experience will need much less to get things moving in the right direction than an experienced bodybuilder.

But too much too soon will likely cause overload, overtraining and injury.

For a complete beginner, 2-3 30 minute kettlebell sessions a week will be perfect which is why I coach this in my group training.

When strength and conditioning has improved we then move up to more complex workouts.

The same is true for nutrition, trying to change everything at once normally results in failure.  Focussing on Calories first and eating within a deficit will start the momentum and when you’ve mastered that it’s time to move into macro manipulation for better results.

In this video you’ll learn about how to determine what is the right level of training for you so that you are doing enough to lose weight but not overtraining.
