Nice photo but really, those Nike Shox sneakers (the ones with the spring-like gadgets by the heel) are terrible for you. She’s got great legs, otherwise.

flyinggfree-deactivated20120512 asked: Hey! I'm Kenny and I'm juts starting out on being healthier, and in shape, and ripped bascially. I'm 17, and a senior in high school. Do you have any advice for me, any special things you use? More male fitspo blogs to follow? Anything at all! thanks!
Hey Kenny! Glad to hear you’re starting down the road to a healthy lifestyle. Let me share 3 key pieces of advice that have been crucial for me. 1) Leave your ego at the door: Most guys will be overly concerned about how much weight they lift and not concerned enough about how they lift that weight. Unless you’re a powerlifter (which most people are not), the key is to use proper form and to isolate the particular muscle you are working. Lots of guys use bad form to hurl a lot of weight back and forth, without working the intended muscle. When I lift, form always takes priority over weight. You’ll get better results and have less risk of injury. 2) Find a motivation that is deeper than simply looking good: Everyone starts off working out & eating right bc they want to look better. There’s nothing wrong with that but for most people, this reason alone will not be enough to drive them through all the time & effort that is necessary. They’ll often fall off the wagon & spend years chasing their goal without success. Why? Bc just wanting to look good is a superficial desire but transforming & sculpting your body is HARD WORK. All of the fittest people I know (men & women) do it bc of a deeper, more meaningful satisfaction than simple vanity. Find a motivation for you that is up to the task. 3) Be consistent and give it time: Lots of people are impatient and think that if they don’t achieve their dream body in a few weeks that it’s not working and then give up. I used to think in terms of weeks and months, and used to think that working out for 2 months straight was a big deal. Now, I know that transformation takes months or even years. The best physiques in the world have taken years to achieve and even then, they still have room to improve. Lots of the fittest people in the world look at their bodies on a yearly basis, as though they were cars: there’s the 2011 model, then a 2012 version, then another version for 2013, etc. Make it a lifestyle, not a temporary change and the results will come with time. Hope this helps! Stay fit!
Damn! Can’t help but to be impressed!
