Fat Loss Tips – #14
Okay, so I appreciate that my weakness is probably that I have too much of a broad, macro-level perspective on fat loss. I have almost become dismissive of the “little things” that add up to success over time.
These things are incredibly important, especially if you’re a relative beginner, or haven’t made progress in a while. Whilst long-term strategic planning is key, you also need day to day success as well.

This is a fantastic fat loss tip – and no I don’t mean cookies, ice cream or pizza. It could be anything, like watch a movie at the cinema with your significant other, take a weekend trip somewhere, or a full-blown holiday. The size of your reward should correspond with the size of your goal/milestone achieved.
This is a great, positive way to keep yourself motivated. You can also make this conditionsl. For exmaple, by May 31st, IF I hit my goal bodyweight, I will go to “x” city for a weekend break with my son (or wife or a friend or go solo).
By the way, the above article, despite it’s really annoying layout and its difficulty to navigate, has some other useful tips on there.

I mean, if it’s really low intensity stuff you can do what you want, but assuming you’re actually pushing yourself, you will want to look at rotating things to maximmise recovery.
Another brilliant resource for this, which I highly recommend you read up on is Alex Viada.
