Want to see results? The Bachelor’s Sam Wood’s 5 tips to help you break through

Sometimes it can feel like you’re doing all the right things, but if you’re not seeing results, it might be time to shake things up. Sam Woods has some ideas for you.

It can be frustrating to feel like you’re putting in the work but not getting the results you think you should be getting.

What that says to me is that your lifestyle probably needs a shake-up, whether it’s a new kind of workout or dietary changes.

If you want results this new year, here are my five top tips.

HIIT is a proven winner. If you want great bang for your buck and fast results, I absolutely would encourage you to have some form of HIIT training as part of your weekly routine. Short, sharp, and very effective.

2. Resistance training

Do not be scared of or avoid resistance training. The more strong, toned muscle you have the better you will feel, the better you’ll function and the more efficient your metabolism will be.

3. Incidental exercise

It seems so simple but so many of us don’t do enough. Whether it’s an extra bike ride, taking the stairs instead of the lift or getting those 10k steps in each day- it all adds up. A little bit each day can make a big difference.

4. Try something different

One of my favourite sayings is “if nothing changes, nothing changes’.

Our body is smart and if we have been doing the same exercise routine week in and week out, month in and month out or even year in year out, it’s time to shock our bodies and try something different.

For me, this is swimming. I’m not very good at it so I have a love/hate relationship with it but I know it challenges my body and it’s something different.

5. Food, food, food

Last, but by no means least, is your nutrition. You simply cannot out-train a bad diet. What you do physically will count for very little if you don’t get your food to a 7/10 or better.
