As time goes on things seem to be becoming more complicated then needed. The basics used by Arnold and Frank Zane worked back then and they still do. A combination of food, rest, and training are the basic elements needed. Reading fitness and diet articles in today’s world have most confused and pushed towards high dollar supplements. Today training styles, techniques and diets are very complicated and hard to figure out. Seems as if fitness gurus are always trying to create some new style or more effective technique/science to achieve better results. But if you think back to the old school sayings like “If it is not broke don’t try to fix it ” or “We are what we eat ” are so very true. I guess the reason for this blog is to share the fact that the basics still work. So give yourself a break and keep it simple- the basics still work.
