How to Get the Perfect Martial Arts body
Some guy looks like an elephant, another guy looks like a twig, another guy is lifting weights like they are going out of style. Some guy is working on speed, another guy is working on power, and another guy is working on technique. And the question here is…what is the best type of body to have in the martial arts. What is the perfect martial arts body.
Do you want a body that is filled with muscle, and so strong that if it gets hit it doesn’t hurt? Do you want a body that is lean and lithe and able to be flexible out of any situation? What is the best kind of body to have in the martial arts?
The solution lies in comparing and contrasting types and attributes. A body with lots of muscle has fast strength, but it is usually short on endurance. Carrying those muscles around costs something in the length of energy.
A body that is too lean has flexibility and speed, but sometimes you need mass and weight to make a punch potent. A punch depends upon transferring weight, you see, and if the body doesn’t have the weight, the punch will suffer. The trade off here is that if your body is skinny you can increase your speed, which will increase weight, but that is not always reliable in a fighting situation.
So this is what I want you to do to solve the conundrum. First, give up all fast food and soda drinks. This stuff is pure killer, and that is easily proven if you just look at the people coming out of the doors of your local hamburgery.
Second, give up all pasta, bread, and that sort of thing. Your body doesn’t digest synthetic food easily, and the food tends to congest and make the body fat. Really, examine all the foods you eat, and avoid anything that is manufactured.
Okay, you’re saving truckloads of money by eating veggies with a bit of protein every day. The protein could be hamburger patties, portions of chicken, turkey, fish, and so on. Red meat should be rationed out gently.
What you are going to observe is the weight will drop off easily and smoothly. You’re body is going to become lean and muscled and last long and have tons of extra energy, and this will start happening almost overnight, at the least, you will notice differences within a week or two. Combine this with your martial arts work out and you will shortly find that your body begins to assume the perfect shape, bulk, mass, speed, and everything else, for you are now eating what nature designed for it.
