    Let’s start with brief description of a kettlebell, and what it is exactly. Kettlebell is essentially a cannonball with a handle. The two most common kettlebells are the classic or the traditional type, a ball of cast-iron with a rounded handle, and the competition kettlebell made of steel with varying cavity sizes. The classic kettlebells vary in size as the weight increases. Competition kettlebells are very popular among kettlebell enthusiasts and professional lifters because no matter of the weight, the bell’s size and dimensions always remain the same. Competition…

    May 2006. For the first few years of this blog (back in the MizFit days when the tagline was …at the CORE we’re all the same.) I never mentioned the Tornado’s adoption. A smattering of readers came with me from my previous Guatemama blog. More than  few readers (Id imagine? no one ever said anything) noticed our personalities matched a bit more than our outsides. I never mentioned her adoption because she was so very little. I never wrote about her adoption because it’s her story to tell. And then, to my dismay, she grew older. Even though she’s always known she…

    I have run over a dozen half marathons in the last 5 years. I’ve written about a lot of them in my blog,  Running For My Life, and annoyed my friends with the constant tales from my training and from the races themselves. I’ve encouraged many to become runners and by others been told that if I bring up the running thing one more time they’re disowning me. But one time, I did something in a half that I’d never done before. I WALKED the whole thing. It wasn’t because I wasn’t trained – I was and could have easily done the distance but my friend, Sara, had an IT band that was…

  • 5 Christmas Gift Ideas for Personal Trainers – 2014 Edition

    Trainer Andrei
    9 Nov 2014 | 3:28 am
    This is my third year of writing a blog post on Christmas gift ideas for personal trainers. If you’d like to see what I recommended previously check out this post from 2012 and one from last year. HIIT and Interval Timers Making a return this year are interval timers. High Intensity Interval Training is still popular because of it’s effectiveness so a good timer helps keep pace with a workout. The two I’d highly recommend are Gymboss, which attaches to a belt like a pager or an app SecondsPro that needs a smartphone.  SecondsPro is my referred app when I work with clients.
  • How to Become a Morning Person

    12 Oct 2014 | 7:32 pm
    Waking up early in the morning, before anyone else is hard.  In my early twenties, my day didn’t start until 10 or 11am sometimes. It felt like the day just escaped, and that feeling alone prompted me to reset my clock and become a morning person. Since I made that change 10 years ago, I never looked back. Why wake up early? Before starting anything you need to have a reason ‘Why’ you’re doing it. Because you ‘want to’ or ‘feel like it’ is not good enough to sustain a habit. Eventually you’ll just change your mind and do something else…

    It’s so easy to justify a missed workout or two. Maybe even three. It’s starts there, and then you start making excuses about your diet . A little bit of cake here, some chips there and then a full blown pizza party. For the most part, I tend to be pretty good about my training schedule and eating habits. If you recall back in 2012 I decided to really clean up my diet and become more focused on my training and other healthy lifestyle habits.  I picked my goals and worked on achieving them.  That hasn’t been the case lately. I’ve been rationalizing with myself why…

Although my training is primarily focused on competing in the Spartan Beast, this training program will help you get ready for other similar events of equal or lesser distances. Even if…

  • Breakfast Club of Canada Pouring Heaps of Sugar Into Canadian Children

    27 Nov 2014 | 2:30 am
    So last week saw Coca-Cola Canada writing about their involvement with Breakfast Club of Canada, a national breakfast charity that serves 90,000 Canadian school children. Coca-Cola is involved because by way of their orange juice donation they're teaching a whole new generation of kids that OJ and breakfast are a perfect fit. Though of course juice isn't a perfect fit for anything really as it packs the same sugary caloric punch as soda, and while it does contain a smidgen of vitamins, if you put those very same vitamins into Coca-Cola that certainly wouldn't be a beverage you'd be…

    So let me set the stage. Researchers wanted to evaluate the impact of 6-8 months of motivational interviewing, self monitoring, text messaging and email support, had on the weights and behaviours of high school students with obesity. This intervention group was of course matched with a control group that didn't receive all that great attention. Retention was great with 94% of the intervention group completing their last visit (and 87% of controls). The results? Well they were published last month in the journal Childhood Obesity. While 54% of the intervention group either maintained or…

  • Does Eating Acai Berry Improve Weight Loss Results?

    15 Nov 2014 | 2:44 am
    by Jayson Hunter, RD, CSCSAcai berry has been tagged one of the superfruits of the world. It got most of its popularity from being mentioned on Oprah with Dr. Oz discussing what he felt were powerful foods everyone should be eating.He mentioned Acai berry as a powerful antioxidant fruit and briefly mentioned that there was 1 study conducted that indicated there may be potential for it to help with weight loss.That is all the scam artists had to hear.

  • Low Carb Diet: Fat or Fiction?

    18 Nov 2014 | 8:03 am
    From the video:"The role of insulin is to build fat, and when you frequently consume carbohydrates it stimulates excess insulin. The insulin stops the food from being used properly, making you eat more and more frequently, a vicious cycle. Fat gives basically no insulin response, protein stimulates it moderately.""This is not a high protein diet, it is high fat. You need enough protein to maintain/stimulate muscle, but mostly you should just dodge the carbs and eat the fat. It’s more satiating, helping you eat less.""Some people metabolise carbs better than others. Many people are unaware…

  • Saturated Fats: A Weight Loss Alternative To Starvation and Exercise

    25 Sep 2014 | 9:11 am
    This weird trick is for people who haven't been able to keep the weight off, though they've tried to do so for years.A surprising finding is, to lose weight, you have to consume a certain amount of healthy fats, including saturated fats. They ensure steady energy as well as a feeling of satisfaction. (The amount you eat is up to you.)Saturated fats are things such as whole cream, animal fat and coconut oil. Grass-fed butter is another example of healthy, saturated fat.The next time you are hungry, to keep from overeating, consider consuming grass-fed butter (without the bread or crackers).

Saint Francis de Sales Whenever things have gotten harder in my weight loss journey, I have attacked things with stricter eating and more intense exercise. That has always led to a binge for me.

I took my two naproxen sodium pills and the pain lulled to a dull thud. Mike was going to drive and we stopped to get gas in town before leaving. That’s when it happened… I was waiting in line at the gas station within a mile of my house when I saw a boy. I knew him! I didn’t know how I knew him, but I knew him and he was a friend. A good boy.

    Moms  like us are familiar with the tension that the holidays can bring. There’s too much to do in too short a time: family gatherings, kids’ recitals, gift buying, secret Santa. From crowded shopping malls to that critical dinner ingredient you forgot, running around causes a lot of stress. Traffic, snowstorms, drunk drivers and other shoppers make driving a frightening endeavor, and the strain to get everything “just right” can make many of us too tightly wound to enjoy the events we plan.

    When I lived in Hollywood,  ended their nights by heading straight for bacon wrapped hot dogs served in the seedy carts that wheeled along Hollywood Boulevard. These were affectionately called “danger dogs” because you knew there was a certain risk involved in the street food. People were willing to accept that risk for a flavorful late night taste of bacon. If culinary roulette just wasn’t your thing, then your other choice was to head to the iconic Mel’s Diner for a meal.

It still has the creaminess and tanginess you get with mayonnaise, but only a fraction of the calories. I saved money on this organic meal by making the chicken myself.

I still gravitate towards the sweet breakfast foods now, as an adult. I created Organic Belgian Waffles with Raspberries as an homage to the diner breakfast of my childhood, but this version is all grown up. Gone is the excess of whipped cream, and in it’s place is fresh organic raspberries on top of an organic waffle that is crispy yet fluffy at the same time. Breakfasts like this are so easy to…

    Is it actually possible to program your body to burn more body fat? We explore… One of the most significant processes that occurs during a successful diet is triggering the mechanisms in your body to burn fat for energy instead of protein (or muscle). Different forms of eating will produce this effect in different ways.  One process which occurs when the body is burning fat is called ketosis.  Ketosis is the body’s mechanism for reprogramming your metabolism for energy production.   The human body generates energy from the natural glucose in starches and carbohydrates or from the…

It was the 70’s, that’s how things worked.  This man came in to our lives through one of the most important men in my life, my Uncle Billy.

    Tell me if the following sounds familiar: “If you are not eating at least 6-8 servings of fruits and vegetables every day, you are seriously limiting your efforts when it comes to your well-being and weight management.” I can bet it does, since it’s been the regurgitated mantra of every doctor, dietician and fitness GooRoo.

    A detox also doesn’t have to be just about the food — it is much more than that. So if your body is craving for some sleep — give it just that! Don’t worry about just sleeping through the day. Sometimes that is just what your body requires. Take short naps or long ones. This way your body gets the rest it needs to repair itself. – What you eat and drink is very important.

Pay great attention to cutting technique and sharpening tips to avoid accidents and operate an efficient kitchen. Free of Distraction   One wielding a knife needs to keep free of distraction and maintain concentration. Multitasking dilutes much-needed attention and leads to accidents and cut fingers. Respect the knife and give it 100% of your prepping attention. Keep ‘Em Sharp   Contrary to intuition, a sharp knife is considerably safer than one with a dulled…

    They say that the eyes are the window to the soul, but it’s your skin that really tells the world about you. Unfortunately, sometimes it tells the world things you don’t want it to know, or it outright lies. Wrinkles can tell the world your age, but they can also make you look much older than you are. Skin conditions like eczema or psoriasis often signal illness, or contagion, even though neither is true. We talked earlier about cosmetic treatments for several popular skin conditions. Today we are going to focus on more natural interventions, which you can use alone or as a companion to…

My item of choice of course are the candles.  They’re decorative, pretty and unlike with spray scents you never have to worry about releasing too many fumes into the air when you light them. To…

    Gestational diabetes affects about 4% or all pregnant women.The cause of gestational diabetes is unknown all though there are some clues. Gestational diabetes starts when your body is not able to make and use all the insulin it needs for pregnancy. Without enough insulin, glucose cannot leave the blood and be changed in to energy.

    Pain In The Back of Knee If you are suffering from posterior knee pain, which is back of knee pain, it can be caused from several different factors. This type of pain can gradually develop which may be an indication that there is a problem with some part of the knee. If there is an injury that has occurred, then the pain will develop suddenly. In some cases, people will have the feeling of an achy back of the knee pain, while others could find restrictions in the movement of their knee due to a sharp pain or from swelling. I have put together a small collection of articles and videos to…

    Increasing The Calories Burned When Walking Walking isn’t considered by many to be a great cardio exercise because the calories burned walking is often less than other exercise routines. For example, cardio exercises like running and cycling, can have you burning anywhere from 3 to 4 times more then the calories you burn from just walking. However, if you want to increase the calories burned walking, there are some techniques you can include to get more out of it.

    Self improvement can suck. Getting ourselves to do the things we know we need to do can feel impossible. We know a better life awaits if we can just get ourselves to “stay motivated” and “get focused,” and yet time after time we struggle to stick with anything long term, continually restarting from square one. We ask ourselves, “What’s wrong with me?” And “Why do I suck?

So today we’re going to change that by taking a look at one of Star Trek’s most famous characters – the green blooded hobgoblin, Mr. Spock. Spock is one of the most interesting (and, in this nerd’s humble opinion, greatest) characters of of all times.

  • How to Wrap Your Hands for Boxing Competition

    Lisa Creech Bledsoe
    13 Nov 2014 | 9:49 am
    When you’re training for boxing, you’ll probably wear regular boxing wraps or gel gloves underneath your boxing gloves for protection and support. When you compete under the USA Boxing sanction, the rules on what you can use to wrap your hands, and how you must wrap them, are very specific. Ringside did a particularly good video on this, and it’s well worth watching the entire 16 minute video (and there’s a funny treat at the end). It’s worth mentioning that they got the rules wrong about one thing. According to the most recent Competition Rulebook, which took…

    Getting a good amateur boxing match together is never, ever a blissfully effortless ride on the pugilistic merry-go-round. It’s the most complex, chaotic, and frequently emotional mess you ever did see. If all you ever do is show up to enjoy a local fight night it might look smooth, from the outside. But it absolutely isn’t. For the 4 to 6 hours prior to the doors opening at the average amateur boxing evening, there is more anarchy and disarray than a high school cafeteria lunch period on homecoming Friday with no teachers.

And finally I wrote it all down, since that’s infinitely preferable to madly scrambling around at the last minute, trying to remember what all our boxing team will need once they get to the competitive arena. Btw, I searched the internet and didn’t find ANYTHING to help you pack your competition bag, so if you happen so see something, please link it in the comments.

    We were on the upper NC section of the Blue Ridge Parkway this year, which has more open, rolling pastureland than you see in the “High Country” lower down. The park’s boundaries are narrower in this section — sometimes only a half-mile wide — so in addition to enjoying some grassland “hobbit hikes” along with our mountain-climbing and waterfalls, we also brushed up against more farms, homes, and… well, cows… this year. (We called them wild cows, or cow-bears, in order to feel more daring and adventurous.) The photo above is the view just…
  • How to Work Against the Ropes

    Lisa Creech Bledsoe
    9 Apr 2014 | 11:35 am
    At most boxing gyms you’ll hear coaches tell you to stay off the ropes and control the center of the ring during your rounds. And that’s sound advice. But there’s also some good things to be said about being the kind of fighter who can perform well against the ropes, and even win a fight using rope skills. Here’s what I mean. When you’re new in the ring, you tend to fight your rounds with your back to the ropes because your opponent is controlling the motion and running things from the center. You go where your opponent sends you — toward the edges of the…

    Dry Falls, North Carolina Who doesn’t love a waterfall?  Growing up  in Pittsburgh every time we had an out-of-town visitor we made the drive to Niagra Falls.  It was there that I fell in love with waterfalls.  A few damp trips on Niagra Fall’s  Maid of the Mist tour boat gave me an up close look at the power of water.  Observing the power of a thundering fall is to see the power of nature. Here in the south we are lucky to have a lot of beautiful waterfalls. One of my favorite southern waterfalls is Dry Falls.   Though located northwest of Highlands, NC it is almost as…

    Chad

    One of the key ingredients in many Asian dishes is ginger. It can add a little zing to the dish as well act as a preservative. Ginger is used in many stir fries and soups. In some dishes it is added whole and just left to increase the flavor without eating it. One dish is the Thai dish of Tom Yum Guy. Many who first eat it fall in love with the flavor. However, many fail to realize there are whole parts of ginger in it. If a person bites into a piece it is very strong. But once realized it is just there to add flavor and not to be eaten, the soup is very enjoyable. With so much ginger used…

I must admit I love their peppermint chocolate bar. However, the point is to show how their reward of an ice cream bar far outweighed any displeasure to get it. We all have things that we enjoy, crave, or even need and are willing to go through a certain amount of “discomfort” to get them. That is why we work. We need…

    Happy Thanksgiving to all my US friends!! Let’s appreciate this day and share in the excitement of knowing that it’s now okay to sing Christmas songs out loud! I’m going to keep this post extremely short because it’s all about being surrounded by friends and family, I plan to shut off from the online world as soon as I hit the Publish button.

    I’ve been busy soaking up some quality time with family. It’s been wonderful! Good company, food and of course cocktails. Luckily, we’re a fitness loving family so it hasn’t been a week of putting our butts on the couch and not moving. My SIL asked me Monday to take her to the gym for a workout… well, okay then! Her only request was that she didn’t want to be so sore she couldn’t move for the remainder of our trip. While normally, I don’t make any promises to this one, I took her request to heart helping her to choose weights I knew would push her yet not leave her cringing at…

    When we were in the mountains last week, I had the best piece of pumpkin bread of my life. It rocked my world. One of the volunteers dates a chef, she was kind enough to make all the food for the weekend. I enjoyed that chunk of bread at the half way mark (water station) and it remained on my mind for the remainder of the race… it was that good. That small piece of pumpkin bread got me motivated. I knew I couldn’t match the deliciousness of that recipe, and to be honest I didn’t feel like trying. Instead, I decided to turn my attention to my favorite festive holiday…

    24 Nov 2014 | 2:00 am
    This is the week where we all look in the mirror and thank God (or whoever) for what we’re grateful for. It’s the time where we realize how much we take for granted and how truly special/blessed we all are. According to Maslow’s hierarchy of needs all we really require, in order, is: Physiological needs (food, water, air) Safety (shelter, security) Love & belonging <— I think is a gift not a requirement. If we have those three things then the rest is just a huge bonus… and I think 99.999% of us can say we all have some amazing bonuses to be thankful for this week, and every…

    Hello friends. I hope you’re having a fabulous end to your workout week. Today is a big day in the Boyle house. We’re packing up and heading 30 minutes down the road for a week long family vacation. My in-laws are coming for Thanksgiving to Charleston for the first time, and they’ve rented a beach house for us to all be together. I’m very excited. For one, I don’t think Dan and I have ever taken a FULL week to spend with family. In fact, I was very close to taking on a few boot camps next week since the house is pretty close. But Dan wasn’t keen on the idea, and I agreed that the…

    As part of any bodybuilding program, balance is the key. Some believe the weightlifting aspect of the program is the most important. On the other hand, others adhere to the belief that the supplements used are key. Actually neither is more important than the other. They both should be essential components of any bodybuilding program. When undertaking a bodybuilding program, it is important to observe proper nutrition guidelines. Do not solely rely on supplements to provide you with healthful benefits. These should be just as their name implies-supplements. They shouldn’t be used as the…

Muscle Builder Apps are great for recording sets and weights, but what you may not know is that they are great for identifying over-trained muscles and help prevent injury. Apps can also identify weak points and help bust through plateaus. I’ll talk about one Android app “Muscle…

Walks right back to the weight room and starts cranking out sets (or for you Crossfitters jumps right into a WOD) Sends a couple of texts, plays a game of Candy Crush, twists their body around a bit and then gets into a workout.

    23 Nov 2014 | 12:26 pm
    Training your shoulders has multiple benefits. Well-defined shoulders accentuate your waistline and make you proud to show your arms in a tank top or a sexy little evening dress. But the benefits of strong shoulders go beyond appearances. Strong shoulders are important for the functional activities you do every day like lifting, reaching, pushing and pulling. Think how many times you use your shoulder over a 24 hour period – to do simple things like household chores and to reach for things on a shelf.  Plus, you use them when you weight train. That’s why you need strong, healthy…
  • Do You Have to Lift to Failure to Build Lean Body Mass?

    Cathe Friedrich
    23 Nov 2014 | 11:54 am
    To build lean body mass, you need to subject your muscles to greater stress than they’re accustomed to through structured resistance training. By overloading your muscles in a progressive manner, they grow and become stronger. The ultimate form of overload is training to temporary muscle failure. This is a common approach strength athletes use to gain strength. Some bodybuilders also use this technique to build muscle, although not necessarily with every time they work out. Is this the ideal approach? How important is it to train to muscle failure for muscle growth? What is Training to…

  • 4 Signs That Your Core Muscles Are Weak

    If you want to have strength from a functional standpoint, you need a strong core. Your core is a large group of muscles, 29 in total, located smack dab in the center of your body. The power generated for most of the movements you do comes from your core. You often hear the core referred to as a “powerhouse.” Now you know why. You not only use your core muscles when you lift weights – you tap into their strength and power when you do everyday tasks like cleaning the house and doing yard work. Core muscles come into play when you lift, turn, twist, pick something up, bend or…
  • Regional Muscle Hypertrophy: What is It and Can It Impact Your Workout?

    Cathe Friedrich
    23 Nov 2014 | 8:10 am
    Muscle hypertrophy refers to an increase in muscle size as a result of resistance training.  Hypertrophy occurs when individual muscle fibers increase in size. As you gradually increase the load you place on a muscle over time through training, it adapts by becoming bigger and stronger. As a muscle grows, the cross-section area of the muscle becomes larger in size and the muscle looks bigger and more defined. Another form of proposed muscle “growth” you hear less about is called regional hypertrophy. What is Regional Hypertrophy? Regional hypertrophy refers to non-uniform…

    The health and fitness industry is rife with misinformation and propaganda, leading avid gym-goers to take on baseless habits. Many of those mythical habits stem from what is colloquially known as “broscience.” If you’re not familiar with the term broscience, just know that it is essentially a body of knowledge that bodybuilders (both recreational and competitive) believe to be true based simply on anecdotal evidence rather than being scientifically validated. A quick example of broscience is the ideation that eating more frequently throughout the day increases the thermic effect of…

    They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old: Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn. At the going down of the sun and in the morning We will remember them. From “For the Fallen” by Robert Laurence Binyon For the benefit of my mostly US audience, in the UK and many other countries we buy paper poppies around the 11th to commemorate those who served and those who fell during the World Wars. The poppies specifically memorialize the killing fields in France and Belgium during WWI where the “lions led by donkeys” on both sides killed each other in…

  • The One Easy Gmail Tip for Tracking and Testing

    1 Oct 2014 | 7:48 am
    We recently sponsored the slightly-awkwardly-named-but-totally-worthwhile Type-A Parent Conference in Atlanta, and so naturally the topic of email came up (surprise!), especially in relation to testing email forms with different email accounts. It can be a real pain to create yet another email address for your site, and so we all have only a few addresses to go around. Right? Wrong! If you have a gmail account – and who doesn’t? – you effectively have an infinite number of email addresses. And I was surprised how few of the experienced bloggers and content marketers I met…

    If you or your subscribers have been frustrated trying to get to a FeedBlitz feed (or click through to a link in a FeedBlitz feed) in the last 24 hours or so, the reason is because some third party DNS servers have been returning the wrong results for feeds.feedblitz.com. The net effect is that although FeedBlitz is up and your feeds are being served, some subscribers are being sent to the wrong servers, and getting errors as a result. Update: We’ve routed traffic from the “wrong” server to one of the “right” ones, so even folks affected by this should now get…
  • Today I Learned: How to Enable Flash Developers

    Not having Flash development experience in-house, we were puzzled recently when we received a support request from a Flash guy wondering why a file we’d never heard of (crossdomain.xml) was giving a 404 file not found error when he requested it. Because it wasn’t there, obviously. Thankfully, the developer in question was kind enough to throw us a link about why that file was needed for Flash, and a few minutes later we had everything we needed to know. Thanks, Chad! So if you’re a Flash developer, crossdomain.xml is now available on our servers to permit you to use…

    Speed! That is the name of game in today’s world and those that aren’t fast lose, right? Wrong. Sure, in business it’s important for certain processes to be fast. Yet, when humans are running the show and are hurrying up, there are a number of errors being made. We are not mechanical beings or robots. We make mistakes and the more stressed out we are, the more fallible we become. Sometimes we have to slow down in order to move forward.

    The daunting tasks ahead. For many people the thought of getting started towards something huge tends to stop them in their tracks. When we are overwhelmed by the tasks that are before us, many will stop. Inertia sets in and stays at rest. When we’re looking at the big mountain, we may think to ourselves, “How the heck am I going to reach the summit? It’s just too hard and impossible!” We set mental images that makes something doable seem impossible. Yet, a few will look at that same task and think, “Hmmm, now that is a challenge that is very possible.” …

What we see as a problem doesn’t really exist, except in the recesses of your mind. Life will always throw challenges at us. It’s simply how we respond to each one that will take down one road or another. Many people don’t respond at all. In fact, most people tend to be reactionary or simply do nothing.

    We are coming into the Holiday season where many of us have a long history of eating more and exercising less. Here are a few health and fitness tips that if implemented today, could lead to habit formation over the next few months, just in time for the start of the new year. According to the website Psychology Today: “Habit formation is the process by which new behaviors become automatic. The behavioral patterns we repeat most often are literally etched into our neural pathways.

    There are three key ingredients that you need as part of your recipe to successfully build muscle and increase strength. Adequate Training Stimulus. Without this training stimulus it just won’t happen and if you’re not getting results, the odds are that you – like most people – will stop exercising within the first six months of starting. You need to focus on overloading your muscles in a progressive manner, pushing your muscles to momentary failure with each set of exercise. This happens only after you develop a strong base level of strength. The same hold true if…

They looked weird on me and weren’t really my style. “Do you like them?” my wife asked. As I took them off, I replied, “Nah, they look funny on me.” “Did you know that for every TOMS they sell, the owner donates a pair to a child in need?” “No, shit,” I looked back at the rack…

    When it comes to food, I’m always curious about how food affects your body.  By approaching our nutrition in a holistic manner, we become aware of how the foods we consume not only affects our body, but also our mind and spirit. First off, do you know how to peel a banana the right way?  The majority of us open it the wrong way.  But if you spent time watching the Discovery Channel then you may have seen that monkeys open bananas much different from most of us. There you go.  Now you know how to peel a banana the correct way.  I know..GENIUS! The Mai’a or banana is one of…

    It was a long day of coaching and all I wanted to do was hang out with a couple of friends at the bar and enjoy a few drinks.  There’s always that friend who will ask me a smart ass question like, “Is that beer part of your nutrition plan?” He’s usually the out of shape one who spends more hours in the gym than me, never see results, and think it’s because he’s not using the right protein:carbohydrate post workout drink. I usually answer smart ass questions like that with a, “Yup,” or depending on my mood I’m a bit more candid. But I…

  • Cardio vs. Strength Training

    Liz Bowen
    19 Nov 2014 | 6:44 am
    The benefits of doing steady-state cardio for fat-loss (without muscle loss) and metabolic strength training are often put at odds with both fitness experts and those seeking to get fit. The question may not be about cardio vs. strength training being best, but a combination of the two as the best makeup of an ongoing workout regimen. Although many interpreted a 2012 study on the effects of cardio training in weight management as superior to strength training, it may not have told the whole story. While cardio burns more calories during a workout than strength training, strength training has…

    It is a given that lifelong exercise has a tremendous benefit at all stages of life including during pregnancy. Recent experiments and studies are now providing evidence that the benefits of exercising while pregnant can even accrue to the unborn child in terms of brain development. While many scientists believe that active mothers generally birth babies that have more robust cardiovascular systems, evidence that this also translates to brain development has been a more recent concept. One of the first experiments to test this idea was an experiment presented recently at the Society for…

    One of the few downsides to more people attending gyms and working with personal trainers to get fit and healthy is a general lack of understanding of long-held gym etiquette parameters. It seems a good a time as any to do a quick refresher course for old hands and newbies to ensure that everyone has a safe, comfortable and faux pas-free time at the gym. Communication While a certain amount of conversation at the gym is a good thing, there is good communication and bad communication. No one wants or needs to hear you yell to yourself or to your gym partner during heavy exercises. The same…

    The average person gives the push-up very little love in the world of exercises. While it may seem passé and not quite as chic as other exercises that are decidedly less “old school,’ push-ups are truly body altering, core strengthening exercises that can help anyone reach their fitness goals faster. Let’s look at the details of why push-ups are such a great exercise, and why any personal trainer should incorporate them into their client’s routine (as well as their own). It’s clear that push-ups are the best for positioning our upper body muscles for strengthening the forearms,…

So before I bid this year farewell, I’m going to try to take some time to be more aware of everything going on around me. As someone who lives in a big city, I learn to tune things out.

    Personal trainers need to be well-rounded and well versed in a variety of exercises. Every trainer should know how to train someone by means of aerobic (cardiovascular), anaerobic, flexibility and agility-based activities. And without further ado, here are some tips on cardio training. In some very meaningful ways, cardiovascular training is not so very different from resistance training: The same F.I.T. principle (frequency – exercise sessions per week, intensity – heart rate, and time – length of endurance session) applies and has a direct bearing on the results achieved.

    Are you concerned about the level of pain your clients experience after a workout, athletic event and/or social recreation and games? The origin of athletic pain is threefold: Delayed onset muscle soreness,(DOMS) Soft tissue injury such as a sprain or strain Contusions which result from direct blow or repeated blows to a part of the body which can crush underlying muscle fibers and connective tissue without breaking the skin, e.g. contact sports such as boxing, football and the like.

    Personal trainers not only guide clients through exercise movements, they play a major role in educating them about the importance of maintaining a healthy lifestyle and improving the overall quality of their lives. Many people who seek out the services of a personal trainer do so with a specific goal in mind. Quite often, that initial goal is weight loss and weight management. It’s important from the outset that the client understand that weight loss from fat can be offset, in part or in whole, by lean tissue mass and that this is desirable. The building of lean mass, even in relatively…

  • Why Carb Loading Is a Bad Idea

    By Dr. Mercola Carb-loading is a strategy commonly used by endurance athletes, such as marathon runners, in the days leading up to a long run or race. The idea behind carb-loading is to saturate yourself with carbs so your muscles will have plenty of glycogen to use as fuel while you exercise. For instance, Runner’s World states:1 The easiest way to achieve a simple, successful carb-load is to include carbohydrate-rich foods at every meal and snack [starting as early as five days prior to your race]. This means bread, pasta, rice, cereal, potatoes, and fruit should be mainstays. Simple…

    By Dr. Mercola A workout can be a great way to unwind after a stressful day, but ruminating over that unpleasant meeting with your boss may make your exercise session less effective. New research suggests that if your brain is tired, the rest of your body may be tired as well, because the two go hand in hand. Why is it that mental and physical fatigue are so closely connected? Part of the answer is that physical and mental fatigue affect the same region of your brain—the anterior cingulate cortex.

    Humor is a powerful thing. The person who wields it can change the moods of the people around him just by using a simple word or phrase. Humor can serve as a tremendous weapon, one that can circumvent the outer defenses of others and capture hearts and minds. It has the ability to speak to people’s inner emotions and provoke a physical reaction. This reaction is called laughter. The Ancients recognized the power that humor has and used it to their advantage. Catulus, a Roman prosecutor was once challenged by one of his opponents: “Why are you barking, catule?” “Because…

It’s jam packed with such golden nuggets of wisdom as: “take care that your breath is sweet, and don’t go about reeking like a billy-goat” and “Don’t judge a woman by candle-light, it’s deceptive.” The manual consists of 3 books, the first dealing with how to pick up…
  • My Personal End Of Year Challenge After One Month Update

    2 Nov 2014 | 10:39 am
    So what are the results so far of my end of year challenge after one month? At the beginning of October I set out a little challenge for myself to work on my self-discipline. The challenge had both a body and a mind component. The body component consists of going to the gym and working towards my goal of gaining weight. That part has been mostly a success. The mind component consists of setting up a schedule for language learning (advanced French and intermediate Dutch) and sticking to it. That part has been a failure so far. Body: I go to the gym three times a week and mostly stick to a…

Yes, you absolutely need to eat healthy. You also need a great resistance training and cardio routine. However, to fine tune your abs, you need exercises that will blast them way beyond a crunch.

    Are you looking for a workout to build your chest strength but do not have access to a bench press? What if you can do 40-50 push-ups without breaking a sweat? You need a challenge! Try the 30 Second Slow Burn Push-Up. We saw this first on DDP Yoga. I decided to take this workout and run with it in so many different ways, including making it a part of an intense slow burn bodyweight workout. You count to 10 as you go downward in the eccentric phase. You hold the Push-Up for 10 more seconds just above the ground in an isometric static phase, then you slowly rise up in the concentric phase for…
  • CASS Fitness Exercise of the DAY – Horizontal Pulls

    mattbible
    2 Nov 2014 | 8:16 am
    Horizontal Pulls are one of our favorite exercises to prescribe to clients. They blast the upper and middle back muscles. They do a great job for your biceps too, especially if you use an underhand grip like you would for Chin-Ups. Horizontal Pulls are easier than Pull-Ups, and can be done in many different areas. Some of those areas include bars on a playground (like shown below with our client, Christine), the handles on a dip machine, arms of two treadmills side by side (don’t do this during peak hours in a gym), or a smith machine bar (again don’t do this during peak hours) to…

Weighted pull-ups are ideal when doing 15-20 regular pull-ups becomes easier and easier. This exercise is fun, yet very challenging. Not a whole lot of people can do a regular pull-up with proper form, let alone a weighted pull-up. Not only are you working your upper back, but your biceps get a great workout (especially if you do the Chin-Up grip), as well as your forearms, shoulders, and core. You just need some plates (less weight than…

    Continuing on my reviews for vegan protein powders, I recently came across one while shopping that caught my eye called MRM Veggie Protein. It was something I was searching for in terms of what constitutes an enjoyable, yet beneficial protein experience. There are no artificial colors or flavors. Instead, it is sweetened naturally with Stevia. The total protein per serving is 22g, and it has proteins consisting of organic brown rice, hemp, and pea protein isolate. There are omega 3s and 300 mg of High ORAC fruit and vegetable properties as well. It has all the essential amino acids, and it is…

Just like a new sauce on your steak, a change to your route to work - variety really is the spice of life and it's really no different in the world of fitness.

You can hit this workout in a couple ways: Treat it like a complex and use just one kettlebell. You will need to scale the weight to the Kettlebell One-Armed Bent-Over Rows — that baby is 15 reps per arm, so choose wisely! Or use one heavier kettlebell for the cleans, squats, and swings and a lighter bell for the one-armed bent-over rows. Whichever you choose, know that — as always — you can rest…

The weight of the bells will be limited by what you can push press overhead for at least 10 reps, so be choosy with your weight. You want to be challenged but you also want to be fast. Here’s the nasty thing about complexes: you don’t set the weights down until you get to the bottom of the round.

    What does the word fit mean? Are you fit? Are you an avid runner who likes to run 5-10+ miles on the weekends? Do you lift weights five times a week? Or do you just love to hike so you get your exercise there? So what does fit mean? Being in shape and not overweight? Well what does that mean? I think being fit means different things to everyone. Years ago, before I started yoga, my brother (who owns his own personal training studio) told me I was “skinny fat”. I realized I was slim and slender but had no muscle tone on my body but more important was not active whatsoever. Going to…

    Bodybuilding basics you need to understand when building muscles: The simplest and most versatile form of development is the planned double progression system. Don’t listen to the scrawny operative training teachers who are inadequate when it comes to a squat at 225, especially do not pay attention to their guidance on belt usage. If large movements do not help you in adding muscles, seek other choices. For muscles to build at the best proportion, you must impact each two times a week, directly or indirectly.

If you are into hard strength training and fitness, a few definite adjustments may be needed to your workouts if you intend to keep making progress and avoid injuries. You can lift heavier weights and do it more often during your 20s and early 30s without much trouble, even if you recklessly load your joints and spine with abandon. However, you may not be that lucky once you hit 35 and up toward the big 4-0. If that is where you are right…

Articles in leading fitness magazines say it is better to train wiser as opposed to training longer. I find this useful fitness training information, as every time I blast my muscles to the limit my body takes longer to recover. It’s a vicious circle; the intensive training weakens my body, my workouts suffer, so the increased training is pointless. However, the latest training news for weightlifters was encouraging.

    A lot of people, concerned about their lifestyle and health, wonder how to replace the big amount of sugar that is contained in many of the products in our diet.

I used to be plagued with crippling anxiety attacks and mental neurosis on a daily basis, but my struggles with anxiety have taught me how to get rid of anxiety and become more confident. I still sometimes occasionally get a bit surprised by how far I have come, in my mind the old me would never have done some of the things that I do daily now.

  • Jenna’s Morning Superfood Shakes

    One of the best lifestyle changes I ever made was changing what I ate for breakfast.  I made a switch from a meal that most would consider to be very healthy to what worked for my body. Those who have made this change as well seem to have the same consensus. There was a period of time when I was obsessed with steel cut oatmeal and when I say obsessed, I mean OBSESSED. Throughout college and afterwards it was my staple morning meal. I came up with so many delicious variations I would add Greek yogurt to it, blueberries, and nuts, and it made me feel great! It would only be until 11am that I…

  • How to Balance Your Hormones

    11 Nov 2014 | 1:25 pm
    Balancing our hormones and the function of all our glands, which will also balance out our organs and the rest of the body, is an extremely important aspect of good health. Hormones are a chemical that is released by a gland, a specialized group of cells that send messages to the different parts of the body or organs. Unlike the nervous or muscular system which can activate and contract very quickly, the effects of hormones typically run over hours, days, and even weeks.  Think of a woman’s menstrual cycle, how our sleep/wake cycles run, and our diets.  All of these factors contribute to…
