BATTLE

Sometimes half the battle is getting here.... too the gym. Once your here, you are beating the other 80% who do nothing. You are already a winner.   

AVIOD THESE AT ALL COSTS

Avoid TRANS FATS at all cost. Eating just a tiny amount of this ingredient can increase your risk of heart disease and promote accumulation of visceral(located inside the abdominal cavity, packed between the organs ) fat – a dangerous kind of belly fat that’s almost impossible to get rid of.

FOODS FOR A LONGER LIFE.

 Men's Health came up with a list( yeah that is their thing because men have a short attention span) with foods that make you happy, healthy and help you live longer. Thought I would share. Introduce these to your pantry ASAP.

MEMORIAL DAY BLOW OUT.

 I realize we are all going to eat and drink more than we should this weekend. Me included. We have all earnt some time off this weekend. However do this to help minimize the damage. 1. Start your day with a high-protein, high-fiber breakfast each morning. This will keep you full for a long time and just hopefully you big out less the rest of the day.

KEEP LOOKING GREAT!

Did you know that chronic high blood sugar levels age your body faster, inside and out? That is why overweight kids almost always look older. SUGAR IS THE ENEMY!!!!!!! 

BEAT ALLERGIES WITH THIS TRICK

 Running can help relieve allergy symptoms, according to a study from Thailand found. After running for 30 minutes( steady state cardio ) the allergy suffers had a 70% decrease in their symptoms. Something to consider if your suffering. Providing you with one less excuse! 

DON'T DO THIS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 Steady state cardio if you are trying to trim a few pounds. According to The article, published in Obesity Reviews (Vol. 13 Issue 6), explained that cardio doesn't work for FOUR reasons: •1 Some people eat more when they start a cardio program •2 Calorie burning at rest often decreases with cardio •3 Calorie-burning muscle tissue is often lost •4 Cardio programs cause you to do less activity over the day

SLEEPING BETTER.

 We all need to sleep better. Me included. Better sleep will help with recovery, muscle growth and fat loss. Heard it before.... correct? But how do we go about it? This is how.... 1. Exercising in the morning around 7am will help you spend 75% more time in deep sleep and let you cycle through the four stages of sleep more often. What are the 4 cycles? I don't know but all I know is a sleep like a log after a early morning training session.

TIPS FOR STAYING FIT WHILE TRAVELLING

 I am taking a short trip to my native land Australia, in a month. I will be using these tips to stay in shape while I indulge in everything aussie. 1. Do 30 min of physical activity in the morning- A walk, run, some bodyweight exercises, anything. Chances are you will caught up doing stuff later in the day. Get up 30 min earlier and get some activity in. Your waistline will than you.

GETTING BETTER.

 Here are 2 factors you should use in your training, starting today. 1. Consistency - No magic pills or potions will get you the body you want. No short cuts to success. You need to show up and train. Just showing up is the single most important thing.
