Is Your Quest for Flat Abs Hurting You?

My first job in fitness was in a large Y which offered many group exercise classes and for the most part, served its members well.  But I now work with two physical therapists and many of our new clients come to us because they’ve been injured in group classes.  Unfortunately,  I’ve observed classes where students repeatedly pull on their heads and necks to initiate crunches.  I’ve seen exercisers struggle to hold planks and hurt their shoulders and backs.   Here are a few things to think about when it comes to training your abs.

Pumpkin --Excellent source of potassium & vitamin A3. Sweet Potato-- Also an excellent source of potassium & vitamin A.

It's Official

This morning I took my NSCA certification exam. That was a REALLY HARD TEST! I was stressed going in and even more so coming out of the testing room. As I stood at the desk waiting for my printout of if I passed or failed i cant even describe the feeling. But now, two hours later, the waves of relief are starting. I'm glad to be done and ready to put this behind me and move forward. I am now officially a Certified Personal Trainer. I'm very excited to see what exciting adventures the future holds.

When to REST?

So many times I've been asked the question, "When should I REST instead of workout?" ...It's a tough one, but in general I go by about 4 different parameters:1- Is my workout going to add to my tiredness in a negative way or am I tired because I need to get moving? 2- Would an hour nap do me more good than a workout? 3- Am I sick or on the verge of getting sick? 4- Am I depleted, sore and physically in need of a day off?
