Did you weekend go something like this??? Wake up late Friday morning so instead of taking a morning class you decide to skip it and workout right after work, no happy hour tonight! But somehow your co-workers "twist" your arm and all of a sudden it's 7 PM you are 4 drinks deep and craving a slice of pizza......how did this happen? But you promise yourself you will hit it hard in the morning so 1 clice won't kill ya. Saturday morning rolls around and allthough you are feeling sluggish you manage to drag yourself to the gym for a half hearted walk on

Since I'm new to blogging but have had many clients asking me to blog, I decided to open with a topic that has been bandied around my desk by myself and several of my team members. Eating too little can lead to weight gain.Several of our clients were not listening to our advice about eating enough calories and were gaining instead of losing. We challenged them to eat more often. Smaller meals several times a day and reach their caloric goals. Guess what? They all lost weight.

YOU ARE NOT TAKING ANY 'TIME OFF'- Very good strength programs have a 'overeaching period' to push your body to where it has never been before, followed by lowered training stress to allow your body to recover and get stronger. You cannot hit your PR every training session. I used to be guilty of this. Till i figured out this why i was worn out and injured all the time. Dont make the same mistake.
Bored with your training? Stalled progress? Take these 3 tips and bust through your plateau.
1. Instead of reps, do exercise for time. Do had many reps for 30 seconds instead of pumping out your usual 12.
2. Change your exercise order. Do bicep curls before your chin up. Or reverse the order of your training.
3. Use a different tool. Do dumbbell presses instead of barbell. Use a medicine ball for your core training. Use the bike instead of the treadmill. Anything to keep your body guessing.
