Hello Silver Lakes Fit Females
Great news: The CSD is looking into adding a new low impact class to Monday nights. It would be more of low impact step/conditioning class, like before. All fitness levels encouraged. > *Time: 5:00pm -5:50pm – approx 50 minute class> *Program Design: 20-30 minutes cardio (step) with conditioning (weights, bands and bars) followed by a 15 minute core (abs) workout.
A complex illness affecting multiple systems of the body, in particular, the nervous and immune system. CFS or Chronic fatigue syndrome has many symptoms including extreme exhaustion, aching muscles, joint pain, headache, dysfunctional sleep, and flu-like feelings. Recovery can take years if at not at all, most people suffer relapses throughout their lives. There is no known cause CFS.
Since I am tracking everyone's training stress and workout completion, I thought it appropriate to identify those Balanced Training Solution Athletes who have really been executing their workouts and reaching their TSS goals week in and week out. I might add that these athletes push it hard during their "on" weeks and are sure to hold back and not surpass their TSS goals on their easy "recovery" weeks. Congratulations to:

There are people in this world that enjoy running, they live and breath it for many reasons. Then there is people like me who love to exercise but cannot stand the idea of running. People tell me they get a "runner's high". Well, I never got that feeling! Do we really believe that running is the only aerobic exercise that produces weight loss and increases aerobic endurance? I hope not, because there are so many other options that we have and we don't consider because it is more than likely not offered at a gym.

You've probably heard the phrase "nutrient dense foods" before, but do you know what these are and are you getting enough? I was just thinking about how all the foods I eat are basically packed full of nutrients (vitamins, minerals, and other substances that are good for be to prevent disease). Food is actually just like giving a car gas, it keeps the body going and running smoothly (think energy, good mood and healthy skin). Some people view food just for pleasure and that's okay once in a while, but food really is meant to nourish ourselves.
Jog for 1 mile at 5.0 to 5.6 miles per hour
Do 20 stiff leg dead lifts with 45-65 pounds on a barbell (I did 65)
Do 20 squats with the same weight and the bar across your back
Run for 1 mile at 6.0 to 6.6 miles per hour
Repeat the series until you have squatted 100 times, dead lifted 100 times, and run 4 miles.
These two barbell exercises are two of the most effective whole body lifting exercises you can do.
It took me an hour and 10 minutes and my average heart rate was 145.
Let me know if you have any questions.

Results You Can Count
Okay, everyone is always trying to think of ways to change their fitness regimen so that they can remain interested and not reach that dreaded exercise plateau. It is vital that you always switch up your exercises and make it very difficult for your body to "memorize" what you will do. Muscle memory might be the main reason why you cant lose the few extra pounds. You want to always change the exercise type, the exercise frequency, & the exercise intensity of your workout regimen to get the most results.
The question of whether you should go to the gym, get a workout buddy, hire a personal trainer, or just pop in a DVD is one that many people ponder over. Often times people approach personal trainers, like myself, asking what they should do or which do I prefer. The truth is, only you can answer that question. You should first ask your self why? and what would you do there? Obviously I am a proponent of gyms because they provide an array of equipment, classes and training experts.
