We all lead busy lives. Between work, family and the time we spend helping others, we have little time to devote to our health and wellness. This can lead to stress and weight gain, two factors that often go hand-in-hand. However, we can start to reverse this by just being more active.

Challenge your balance and your core after your main training this Friday.
BALANCE FINISHER- SINGLE LEG BALANCE. 20 seconds work and 10 sec rest 4 rounds on each leg. Bend your knee slightly, feel all the weight in the back of your heel take opposite foot off the ground and hold for 20 sec. Rest 10 sec and do the other leg.

1.You Procrastinate- You keep putting things off. Keep waiting for the perfect time to start your new training. You keep talking about it but never put those words into action. The time for action is now!

( Hint when your body needs them the most)
Carbs are NOT evil in these 3 situations
1. MORNING- You have fasted all night(hopefully), so when you wake up there is more room 'in the tank" to store carbs. Good examples are Steel cut oatmeal and Yogurt.

As we get on in years we start to lose the ability to do things quickly (power) . We lose power faster(up to 50%) than we lose our strength. But fear not. Here are 3 easy power exercises to incorporate in your training. These can be stand alone exercises you can do at the start of your training or can be done as a circuit.

After a great week of training and eating clean, sometimes we let it all out on the weekend and undo some of those gains we have made during the week. I have been guilty of that. Now with that in mind here are 3 tips to keep you on the straight and narrow.
1. Say NO to supersize- As fast food is cheap and easy to produce, supersizing your order gets the fast food chain richer and our waist lines, well poorer.
