Which is the best fat burning cardio - running or walking? Is it HIIT or LISS? The answer may surprise you.
How much protein should you eat on rest days? Should you take protein supplement on non workout days? What about creatine - can that be taken on rest days? Should you just workout everyday for maximum growth? In this issue, I discuss the role of rest days for growth in order to answer all these common questions.
“Your body is the only place you have got to live”, I heard that when I was in the worst shape of my life and it struck me hard – I decided to get fit. It’s not that I hadn’t tried before, but this time I was hell bent to “figure it out”.
In the process I realised how over-complicated fitness has become in the society today. I got in my best shape, and being the typical engineer mind I was in IIT - I wanted to make it simple to understand for everyone else.
Fast forward 5 years, I was working in Samsung Research. But in my heart I kept my burning desire alive - “to simplify fitness & nutrition for India.” I started Hypertroph on the side, within next 18 months of posting content on Youtube & Instagram, I started getting decent traction.
Around this time, Hypertroph became profitable enough for me to pay my rent, bills and meet my protein needs (haha) - and I decided to leave my well-paying job to build Hypertroph as a full coach and educator. I have now worked with more than 2100 people all around the globe, and Hypertroph is now India’s most loved and trusted Youtube Channel. I love my work - what we do at Hypertroph.
I strongly believe each one of us CAN get in the best shape of our life, and each one of us SHOULD! Your body is the only place you have got to live, it doesn’t get more personal than this. 🙂
