Sports can bring out the best in you: both physically, mentally, and yes, even spiritually! Sports tend to exercise not only the body but it can also enhance your social personality and the way you hold yourself.
Here are more sports you can join to lose your gut!
Mixed Martial Arts. The practice of martial arts is demanding. It’s not just about your power in subduing your opponent. Rather, it is about the coordination between your mind and your body. The rigorous training that you need to put into also demands a lot from your body and will help tone your muscles and give form to them! Whenever you fall down in sparring sessions, keep in mind that you are developing not just your body but also your mind.
Wrestling! I’m not talking about Smackdown or WWE Raw! But well, if you want to be there, that’s really up to you. But wrestling also demands a lot from your body. Have you ever seen a wrestler who’s not in top physique? This is because wrestling needs strength from your arms, back and chest muscles. You will also need your abs to stabilize your core for those moves that will surprise and subdue your sparring partner!
Professional Bodybuilding. This sport will really demand a lot from your body! The bodybuilders I know such as Jay Cutler, Ronnie Coleman and others are in top condition. Right before their competition, they clock in hours upon hours of training, day after day! They also take supplements that help them burn fat and build muscles. Like they say, there is always a first time. These pro bodybuilders did not start out as heavyweights. They were also beginners at one time. So don’t complain and don’t be discouraged, there is hope for you yet!
Mr. or Ms. Universe. If you set your eyes to becoming the Mr. Universe, you will really need to train and discipline yourself in managing your workouts as well as your diet. Any sport you join is actually a means to improve your confidence level as well as your mental capacity!
Sports is one of the manifestations of our societies’ desire to glorify achievement, discipline and the physical body! By joining sports, you will benefit from a lot of things, chief among these are a smaller waistline and better physical fitness!
