The Help-Hurt Rule for Fat Loss & Muscle Building Success
My wife and I used The Help-Hurt Rule to land our very first cover
with FitnessX.com for the August issue of 2011
We’ve all been there. The countdown to firm up your body, trim the fat and drop those last 10 pounds before a big event.
Let’s assume that you have 2 weeks until you have to get ready for [insert the name of your big event here] and you’ve been working harder than ever to achieve the look you want. On top of your workouts, you are doing your best to make sure your diet and nutrition is right on target. There’s no room for thoughtless decisions this close to your deadline. How do you achieve that goal in a healthy way?
Enter The Help-Hurt Rule!
This rule works extremely well when you’re working against a deadline whether your a beginner or seasoned workout warrior. Whether you’re trying to build muscle, stay motivated or lose fat for that special event…this rule is extremely powerful and realistic.
Tip #1 – Ask yourself one question – every single day you make choices in your life. So on a minute-to-minute basis you need to ask yourself if the choice you are about to make is going to HELP your progress or HURT your progress. It’s that simple.
- In other words, “Will this decision move me closer to my goals or further from my goals?”
The more “Help” decisions you make – the faster your progress, the sooner the results and the easier it is to stay motivated and create momentum.
The more “Hurt” decisions you make – the further you move from your goals, the slower the progress and the harder it is to stay motivated.
Tip #2 – Stop stressing about the little details – use common sense when you’re faced with a nutrition or workout decision. Just ask yourself, “Will this decision hurt me or help me?” You’ll be surprised that you hold the answer to many of your own questions.
Unless you want to become a professional model or bodybuilder, most people have enough workout and nutrition info to get them within 10% of their goals by just applying the Help-Hurt Rule.
Tip #3 – Use these examples to move yourself closer to your goal:
- “Will cutting my workout slow or speed up my progress?”
- “Should I go home now or get my post workout cardio in?”
- “Should I have this alcoholic beverage?”
- “Should I go to bed right now or stay up a few extra hours burning the midnight oil?”
You get the idea. Choose more Help decisions instead of Hurt decisions to move you closer to your goals and you’ll get your best body ever.
Remember YOU are in control of the way you look and every decision you make which will either move you CLOSER or FURTHER away from your goals. So, yes, having that extra piece of bread DOES make a difference 🙂
