165.5 Hours

Hey there,
I’ve got a busy morning of training clients then clocking off at 12:30 and heading up to Cardiff for a stag do for the weekend, you shall most likely be hearing from me next week saying how rubbish I’m feeling after it! I’m looking forward to the weekend though.
Anyway…. 165.5?
What’s that about?
It’s one of the most important numbers in trying to create a better you and (like many of my clients) trying to transform your body.
What does it count for… grams of carbs per day, the amount of sugar in a bowl of corn flakes, how many minutes to exercise for?
Nope.
It’s the opposite actually, it’s the times when you aren’t exercising.
168 hours in the week – let’s say you do 5 x 30 min exercise sessions (as government guidelines recommend), you have 166 hours remaining in the week.
These 165.5 hours are going to have a bigger effect than the 2.5 hours of training in shaping your body.
I’ve had so many clients (and still do) who nail the exercise part (the 2.5 hours) but fail with the rest of the time (165.5 hours) this results in minimal body changes.
In the past, yeah we thought the more exercise the better but exercise can only do so much.
Exercise is one of the best things in the world that you can ever do for your health but if you don’t sort out your other lifestyle factors you will not get maximum results.
I’ve seen people exercise so much to the verge of collapse in a desperate attempt to burn calories and lose weight, there’s better ways of doing it believe me.
(Yep I’m a personal trainer telling you to exercise less!)
What to focus on in your 165.5 hours to achieve success:
1. Eat a well balanced diet – focusing your meals around quality protein, plenty of veggies and good portions of fats and good carbohydrates
2. Sleeping 7-9 hours a night
3. Drinking a bare minimum of 2 litres of water a day
4. Doing things which make you happy (=less stressed)
Get those things right alongside your exercise and you’re onto a winner.

PS The slimming club I run on Wednesday’s is a great place to start. You just need to fill out this form first, you can come to the session and if it’s not for you then you can go free of charge. What have you got to lose? (apart from some weight)
