What if I told you I have a way for you to get the body you want without giving up the food you love? This is what the physical health day of the Titanium Challenge is all about.
It’s true. There’s a misconception regarding fitness. It makes us believe we have to give up the food we love before we can get fit. It creates this idea that we can no longer enjoy food.
I’m going to explain why that isn’t true, and then I’m going to introduce you to the Titanium Fitness and Titanium Nutrition programs.
You Cannot Outrun a Bad Diet
I first heard this saying from my sister, who is a medical doctor. I love this saying because it dispels the misconception that cardio can compensate for a bad diet. It is not so much what you eat, but how much you eat in a sitting and how often you eat.
Your diet determines your physical health much more than your fitness routine. You size your body in the kitchen and shape your body in the gym. Physical fitness is 80 percent nutrition and 20 percent fitness routine.
I wasn’t lying when I said you won’t have to give up the foods you love. You just have to control your portions and frequency. In my Titanium Nutrition Guide, I break foods down into four categories. I am going to give you a brief overview of each category here, but you can
I am going to give you a brief overview of each category here, but you can download the guide to see each category of foods in full detail, as well as to use it as a guide for eating healthy while on-the-go.
The Four Categories of Foods
The first category is made up of the foods that instantly cause weight gain. You can still eat these foods once in awhile, but you have to compensate by skipping calories elsewhere. This includes sugars, processed foods, fast food, junk food, and soft drinks.
The second category is made up of the foods you should avoid unless you absolutely love them. This includes foods like cheese, pasta, potatoes, fruit with high sugar content, and alcohol.
The third category is made up of foods you can eat in moderation. This includes red meat, fruit, sugary vegetables like carrots, corn, and peas, peanut butter, nuts and seeds, tofu, olive oil, and vinegar.
The fourth category is made up of the foods that are best for you to eat. This includes fish, chicken, vegetable juice, leafy vegetables, and egg whites.
Now that we’ve covered the nutrition portion of physical health, we can move on to the Titanium fitness program.
The Key to Shaping the Body You Want
Look at my photos online. I’m no bodybuilder, but I’m pretty fit for my age. I maintain my body by following my nutrition guide in the kitchen and my fitness guide in the gym.
If you’ve been following the daily challenges since day one, then you should be on your ninth day of going to the gym every day for 25 minutes.
The reason for this seemingly arbitrary amount of time is this is how long it takes to complete my Titanium Fitness routine.
The Titanium Fitness routine is based on supersets that focus on opposing muscle groups. Conversely, traditional fitness routines focus on complementary muscle groups. Muscles such as the chest and triceps are grouped together, which is why we typically need to rest in between sets.
The Titanium Fitness routine eliminates this need for rest by focusing on opposing muscle groups. You move from exercise to exercise as fast as possible, which also gives you your cardio workout. If you aren’t sweating, then you aren’t moving fast enough.
The routine has four different days and is meant to be done seven days a week. Here are the muscle groups for each day:
Day 1: Chest and biceps with a 5-minute ab burnout
Day 2: Back and triceps with a 5-minute glute burnout
Day 3: Abs and Shoulders with a 5-minute ab burnout
Day 4: Legs and legs with a 5-minute glute burnout
The full routine for each day can be found in my Titanium Fitness guide.
Your Physical Health Challenge
My challenge for you today is to get conscious towards the relationship between what you eat and how you look and feel.
Get a scale and weigh yourself every day. I use a Withings scale, which is a smart scale that automatically records your weight each time you weigh yourself.
I want you to weigh yourself every day and record your weight each time. Pay attention to how your weight fluctuates based on the foods you eat. Being conscious of your weight is the first step towards physical health.
The second part of the challenge is to give the Titanium Fitness program a try for the next seven days. Successfully complete these two challenges and you’ll be on your way to an optimal score for the physical health section of the Wheel of Life.
