If you don’t care about fitness keep scrolling. (It’s not for everyone I’m aware) Just do one crunch while holding this in your hand , and you will instantly get abs. That’s what everyone wants nowadays, Instant results and a quick fix. I see these 30/60 day challenges everywhere, and I think they are complete bullshit. 50% of those transformations are a lie, it takes TIME, lots of it.
I want to start a challenge that last 9-12 months because that’s the goal people, to make it a lifestyle.
You’re never going to achieve your goals if you go hard for 3 months and quit. If I could say anything to my 18year old self, it would be stay consistent , eat more quality food, less protein shakes, and enjoy the ride. You make your most progress the first two years. If you can’t make it that long you don’t deserve it. It’s definitely not for everyone #keephammering friends. .

    It takes three months to build a habit and make it stick. So a 90 day challenge as a stepping stone and building from there would be the best thing for someone starting out.

    Yep. Less protein shakes. I don’t even drink whey protein anymore. Maybe once or twice a month at most 💪🏼💪🏼 all that bs drinks having a placebo effect on people. Real food = the best

  • 9w ago alec.mcalpine alec.mcalpine

    @patrick_ja_lee Agree man! I haven’t had whey in about 3 years. Real food = king. All marketing

    Going on two years now. 💪💯🔥 It's a lifestyle change and it's the best decision I ever made. Now some weeks I only make it 3 times. Sometimes I'll be on vacation without getting a workout in but I'll never ever quit! I always get right back in it! #2yrfitnessanniversary #fitfam 💪💪

    Well said... physical discipline is a gateway for mental focus & (for me at least) it just gives that “attack” factor for everything else I do

    I definitely fall into the category where I want instant results but I know that’s not realistic nor is it healthy. I do desire to make a healthy lifestyle a habit.. I like the idea of a 9-12 month challenge, and the thought process behind. Anything worth having, takes time and perseverance. Let me know if you come up with a challenge, sign me up 🙌🏻 😉

  • 9w ago xxlonebowmanxx xxlonebowmanxx

    Agreed... 💯

    It's the people who only do one 30/60day challenge. I do one 30/60day challenge then when that's done do another 30/60day challenge. It keeps things interesting. But yes people do not want to put in the work for the abs, everything must be easy nowadays.

    I agree bcaa and creatine and powdered greens in shakes gives me energy at 50yrs old! And I like what you said Alec it takes time. I know I’m trying to change my eating habits and it becomes a habit to turn away from certain foods.

  • 6w ago afi_hunting afi_hunting

    Doesn’t happen in 3 or 6 months it becomes a life style and for me it is in my DNA to hunt.

    Amen bro👍 It took me years to get where i am at. Im still not completely there

  • 2w ago

    Hell yeah man I could not agree more! 🙌🙌 It's certainly not for everyone but yet everyone seems to want the quick fix diets, yet hate on the dedicated cus "oh well you have more time than me" we all have 24 hours in a day. @alec.mcalpine
