You walk into the gym, you didn’t have time to go home beforehand so you’re still in your work clothes. By the time you change you’re already knackered from a long day at work, driving over, lugging the kit bag out of the car and dragging it into the building.
On your left is a huge, Goliath of a man pouting in the mirror and intermittently lifting massive weights like they are made of cardboard…Why would any guy want to look THAT bulky, its not attractive, just vain and weird? Hoping for a more inspiring sight, you look left…
This thin, toned and frankly beautiful woman is making her rounds of every single piece of equipment and making you feel like a fat, ugly loser. Especially when all the guys ogle her.
Time to try something else. You pick weights because at least you can have a short rest between reps without looking silly.
It isn’t long before this strategy becomes flawed as well though, lifting weights is hard and you’re really feeling the burn.

People who are unable to lose weight because they keep switching strategies, using ones that don’t work or losing motivation because it seems too difficult or painful are called “Fitness Wanderers”.
Perhaps just like you he would flip from one diet or exercise regime to another, rarely giving any of them a chance to work.
The few times he did stick with his plan, nothing happened. In fact… He often ended up heavier than he was before.
James was distraught, he felt like he would be overweight and lethargic for the rest of his life…maybe he was just a “naturally big boy” like his mother always told him.
Then one day, out of sheer desperation James went to an old friend who worked as a physiology researcher at his local University. He asked him if it was possible he was just “naturally big”.
Without saying anything else he stood up from behind his desk and beckoned James to follow him down a hallway.
James was excited, he was expecting to be shown some kind of awesome laboratory with people hooked up to all sorts of monitors while they ran on treadmills and lifted weights.
Michael pointed to a table at the very end of the...Read More detail
