Training, nutrition and lifestyle advice I would give to an 18-year-old me 🙎‍♂️

Training 🏋️‍♀️

You will make mistakes, a lot of them. Learn as you go. After 10 years of training, I still look back each year and look at the things I could have or should have done differently in the gym. Your programming won’t be perfect. Train each muscle group 2-3 times per week. That could be twice up five times per week 💪

Leave your ego at the door. Learn how to execute all the exercises you utilize to the best of your ability. Might seem cool at the time to try squat or bench more than all your mates, but if you are executing the movements poorly don’t be shocked when you end up becoming regularly injured (guilty) 🤦‍♂️ Train in a style that you find enjoyable and sustainable. That style will likely change over time as will your goals 😀

Nutrition 🍔

Don’t fixate on one approach. Ketogenic, low carb, high carb, intermittent fasting, they all work once your caloric intake and protein intake are set appropriately for your current goals. Use an approach which again, is enjoyable and sustainable. Again this may change over time. –

Try to consume 80% of your nutrition through nutrient dense Whole Foods and play around with the rest 😋

Supplements 💊 
The majority are a waste of time and money. At 18 years old with limited income, for most, I wouldn’t bother. Focus on your training, nutrition, sleep and managing stress. –

Lifestyle 😄

The majority are lucky enough to have no real responsibilities at 18. No mortgage, no kids, only a part-time job and minimal expenses. Enjoy that time. Work hard, but go out, have fun and don’t take yourself too seriously. Don’t stress if you don’t have a breeze what you want to do in life. I didn’t have a clue until I was 23 ✌️
