10 FOODS TO HELP FIGHT PAIN.

FAT BURNING

 Weight loss and gain are driven by hormones. Insulin is the hormone you need to get under control if you want to burn fat and lose weight. Eating too many foods that break down into sugar, releases insulin into the blood, and then your fat burning ability is down the drain. You may already know this but it is good to hear it again SUGAR IS THE ENEMY! Make one simple change and your results will sky rocket. 

HYDRATED

 Weather is getting warmer and it becomes more important to replace lost fluids. However drinking water is not your only option. Eat these foods to replace lost fluids. 1. Yogurt has 88% water content by weight. 2. Celery has 95% water content by weight. 3. Watermelon has 91% water content by weight. Hope this helps. 

10 FAT LOSS MISTAKES

Great advice from Paula Owens.

WOW

. Currently it is estimated that we, the average human being cosume 67% of our total calories from wheat, corn and soy and there by products. No wonder we are getting fatter. Do your body a favor and consume some green vegatables and lean protein this weekend 

WORK=RECOVERY=PROGRESS.

 Greg Robins from Cressey Performance coined this term this morning in his blog. A increase in work (training) means you need to increase your recovery to see greater progress. Work does include all those outside stressors( family, lack of sleep, work). What does that mean for you? If you have a great training session but you return late from work and your child wakes up during the night ill, please take a extra day to recover. Your body will thank you. 

ROME WASN'T BUILT IN A DAY

 This is what i often tell people who are just starting there fitness journey and try to do too much too soon. Remember this is not just so you can lose a few pounds and fit into your favorite dress or shirt. This is for the rest of your life 

MUSCLE TONE

. Just let me get scientific for a momment. Ther are too types of muscle tone, 1. myogenic - which is what your muscles look like at rest. Either look 'soft' or 'dense' ie ripped. 2 Neurogenic- What you muscles look like when they are moving, like when your are flexing in front of the mirror. So, to develop these two types of muscle tone, doing high reps with low weights so you can feel the burn is OUT. There is no science or reasearch behind that theory. Heavier weights and lower reptitions are IN.

HARDCORE LOWER BODY FINISHER

 Start with 6 lunge jumps then go straight into 6 squat jumps. The go straight into 7 lunge jumps( start with the opposite foot forward) then 7 squat jumps. Then 8, 9, 10 without rest. Keep going till you cannot jump no more. My record is 13. Beat that and let me know. HAVE A GREAT TUESDAY!
