So you want to get LEAN, but you're confused about what you need to do in order to develop a LEAN body. Well here's an acronym I like to use for the word 'LEAN' that you'll find very useful and easy to remember.

L - is for Lifestyle
E - is for Exercise
A - is for Attitude
N - is for Nutrition

Lifestyle must be addressed. It's not just about exercise and nutrition. Time management, stress reduction, quality sleep and sleep patterns all play a vital role.

Exercise is an obvious one. One thing you MUST realise is that you need to STOP 'Working Out' and START 'Training', as there is a BIG difference between the two. People who train do so with a true purpose, a detailed plan and they know what they want and how to go about achieving it.

Attitude is crucial. You MUST develop a success-orientated attitude. Failure or quitting is not an option. Become selfish (this ironically isn't a selfish thing to do) and focus on yourself and what you want to achieve. Put YOU first and work on achieving the LEAN body you want.

Nutrition is another obvious one. However, don't think that you need to start eating like a rabbit and starve yourself in order to achieve the body you want. Seek out advice from people in the know and follow their guidance. Practice SMART nutritional practices and as I like to say...

'Eat CLEAN, If You Want To Get LEAN'

If you put LEAN (Lifestyle-Exercise-Attitude-Nutrition) into practice, then what you practice will be GUARANTEED to make you LEAN...BUT...You MUST consistently put this into practice.

You have to continually apply yourself and you have to be consistent with your training and your nutritional plan. Applying yourself Monday through Friday and then having a free for all on the weekends IS NOT going to get you anywhere close to developing a LEAN BODY! You MUST avoid what I like to call 'WEEKEND DISASTERS'.

The more serious you approach developing a lean body, and the more serious you are in applying yourself, then the better your results will be! It's a simple formula...

Serious Attitude + Serious Application = SERIOUS RESULTS!!!

OKAY, I better STOP my rant now. Hope you enjoyed this tad bit of information and hopefully you can draw something from it as you set out to develop a LEAN or LEANER body!
