“OK Nate! Very funny! But what is the actual best training plan to get in shape?”
Here it is…
It’s the one you enjoy doing.
“Alright Larry. Here is your training plan, it includes the most effective exercises possible for your goals in the most effective format and extremely detailed like you asked for! It was hard work but your goal of racing and winning against Tony Hawk down the slopes of Mount Everest on a GT Racer will be no problem if you just follow this plan.”
“Oh, by the way, you’ll need 3 hours a day for strength training, conditioning and GT Racer modifications.”
“You also need to limit your caloric intake to 2375 calories, and most of those calories need to come from smoothies made with an exotic plant that comes from the amazon”
“It’s probably best if you limit your social interactions to only 3 hours/wk to make sure your friends don’t tempt you to eat a donair… or try one of those crazy carpets”
OK, I got a little carried away there. This is probably on the extreme end, but you get the point. It’s so extreme that you are going to have to drastically alter your lifestyle to accommodate this training program. If you’re reading this as an elite athlete or someone who really does have extreme goals, this isn’t for you (although you will eventually need to learn to enjoy the process if you haven’t already.)
