It’s no secret that the majority of Americans set their new year’s resolutions around having a slimmer or more toned body. And even if you have been a bodybuilder for years and have muscles for days, it can still be hard to make your new year’s resolutions last. Here at Dr. Rick Silverman’s office, we want you to achieve all of your goals the first time around. That’s why we have created a list of a few ways to help ensure that you accomplish all of your resolutions in 2018.
Want to get bulkier? Want to have a little more definition? Yes, you can set a goal to hit the gym three times a day, five times a week, but that’s not a realistic goal for the majority of, well, anybody. When setting your goals, be realistic with your time commitment and the outcome you want. For instance, maybe you only have time to go to the gym three days a week for 20 minutes at a time. Make it your goal to go extra hard during those 20 minutes so that you get the most out of your workout each time you’re at the gym.
Watch the Supplements
Although there are some all-natural supplements out there that can really help you enhance your workout and results, make sure that you are careful with what you’re putting into your body. For instance, there are some adverse side effects do things like steroids that can result in males developing gynecomastia or male breasts. If you have gynecomastia, we can perform a brief surgery to help you get rid of it.
This may sound like a weird way to make sure you follow through on your goals, but many patients get injured when they don’t get enough rest— meaning that they have to take weeks, if not months, off of working out or weight lifting. Make sure that you are giving your body rest days in between.
