4 Strange Ways to Reach Your Fitness Goals
Think about your fitness resolutions for the New Year.
Do you want to build more muscle mass?
Want to lose body fat?
Looking to compete in an athletic event?
Whatever your goal, you want to pull out all the tricks to help yourself reach it. Some tactics you’ve read about time and time again while others can be a bit weird yet effective. Let’s take a look at the 4 most effective ways yet strange ways to reach your fitness goals.
- Elevation Training
If you really want to put yourself through a challenging workout, you don’t need to fly to Peru to train on some of the highest mountain in the world. You just need a mask.
Elevation training masks are another popular fitness trend that simulates the conditions of training at higher altitudes. It does this by restricting oxygen flow, forcing your body to work harder to provide sufficient oxygen.
Strap on the elevation training mask during your normal workout and get ready for an intense exercise session.
- Eating Schedule
When it comes to recovery, weight loss, and muscle building, nutritional timing is everything.
One method of eating that may help you lose weight, increase recovery, and support muscle building is intermittent fasting. This widely popular way of eating involves 16 hours of fasting with an 8-hour feeding window. Keep your dietary choices clean during the feeding window and you’ll be amazed at what you can look like after a few weeks.

You can use basic breathing techniques to practice meditation and this can have a profoundly positive impact on your mental wellbeing. If you want something to help with performance, you might want to try the Wim Hof Method. This training methodology may be able to improve total blood saturation of oxygen. As a result, your performance may improve.
