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
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.
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.
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.
Just read a short article by injury specialist and exercise physiologist Rick Kaselj, MS suggesting the position you keep your knee in, is partly causing knee pain.
Positions include 1. sitting down with your knees bent. 2. With your feet crossed 3. Your feet behind you and under your chair.
Hungry already? When eating today, put your fork down between bites and thoroughly chew your food. It is a effortless way to cut calories and also to enjoy your food more. No fork food for lunch? Put that sandwich down between bites for the same effect.
