Friday Fitness Tips

Do the Cardio You Love...Doing your first cardio workout can be a little overwhelming, particularly if you're doing it at a gym. There are rows and rows of different machines to choose from and a schedule of classes you can attend. So the big question is, do you walk, row, step, or dance your way to fitness? Which is best? The answer is, any of the above. You should do whatever you enjoy the most — just make sure you're pushing yourself and keeping your heart rate at 85 percent of maximum. Sure, some machines are more effective than others just the way some classes are more intense than others. But if you dread and avoid certain exercises, it will be harder to motivate yourself, right? Whatever activity you decide on, make sure to keep it fresh. If you've been doing the treadmill for a while, switch to group class for a few weeks (Zumba, anyone?). Or, if you feel like you've been wearing out your spot in class, venture out of your comfort zone and check out what's happening over at … [Read more...]

My Review on the FitBook from fitlosophy

My Review on the FitBook at fitlosophy.~live life fit~If you need a workout journal then the fitbook is right for you. This book is a 12-week program journal/log book. You can keep track of your food intake, and your weekly goals, like weight, body fat loss, jean size, etc.... This book will help you keep track of your workouts, weight loss and nutritional goals. If you write it down everyday, you will make it happen. So if you have a game plan and your goals are to tone up or slim down, it is important to write down your goals. Set your 12-week goals and then set smaller goals on a weekly basis so you have a plan for achieving your long-term goals.At the end of each week there is a weekly wrap-up page where you reflect on your week and a weekly notes page where you can write what ever you like, it even has a inspiration box where you can write what inspires you. So every week you write down your weight, body fat % or other. Write down your weekly goals {workout, nutrition, other}. You … [Read more...]

Exercise Your Right To Bare Arms….

Exercise Your Right To Bare Arms... By: Jillian Michaels Looking at Hollywood's red carpet, you can tell the stars are all about developing and toning their upper arms. Even First Lady Michelle Obama proudly shows her fantastic biceps regularly. Buff arms can be yours too! What you need is a move that will make what I call the "belly" of the biceps really pop! Ready? Get in the right mind-set — it's time to concentrate!   Concentration Curls Hold a dumbbell in your right hand and sit on the edge of a bench or a chair with your feet a few inches wider than your hips. Lean forward from your hips, and place your right elbow against the inside of your right thigh, just behind your knee. The weight should hang down near the inside of your ankle. Place your left palm on top of your left thigh. Exhale and bend your right arm, curling the dumbbell three-quarters of the way up toward your shoulder. Hold for a beat, then inhale slowly, lowering the weight, and repeat. … [Read more...]

What to Do When You’re Starving Before Bed

I'm Hungry and It's Bedtime......What Should I do?Here at Beachbody, we're always drilling the "no eating for 3 hours before bedtime" rule into your head and, sure enough, it's important not to go to bed with undigested food in your stomach, especially carbohydrates and fat. So what about those nights when you're so hungry that if you don't eat, you know it will affect your sleep?The answer is a protein shake. Usually, truly feeling hungry is a sign indicating a lot of muscle breakdown. When you have muscle breakdown you need protein, especially at night, which is when your muscles do most of their recovering. So if you are famished, a small protein shake with no added ingredients, like fruit or milk, will not only allow you to sleep but speed up your recovery process as well.~Steve Edwards ~Shakeology is a good protein shake to drink.
