3 Ways Your Body Uses Your Diet

  • formats

Do you ever think about how your body uses your diet? I didn’t think so, but you should!  Not only that, but you should think about when you are hungry, WHAT exactly your body is craving. If you do this, then you may find that a lot of times what your body is hungry for is exactly what it needs and not necessarily just what your mind wants.  High intensity cardio days cause me to crave carbs at a higher rate than normal whereas long mornings of back-to-back clients will cause me to reach for nuts or some other form…

Top 3 Fat Fighting Fats!

  • formats

When you think of a healthy diet, you think “low fat”…right?  These days you also hear a lot about “low carb” diets and foods no doubt but the most widely thought of term when thinking of dieting for weight loss is still “low fat”.   Why?  Well for the same reasons that people think  they can’t have carbs anymore…they aren’t disciplined enough to not eat the whole damn bag, or tub, or whatever contains their favorite carb-y goodness.  This is a mistake that you can NOT make though, with carbs OR with fats because pretty soon we’ll all be sitting…

3 Reasons Your Cardio Workouts Are Not Working

  • formats

Your current cardio workouts may not be “working out”, at least as well as you had hoped they would. That is ok though because believe it or not, cardio workouts are not as simple as “burning this amount of calories on the screen” or “doing what that person does”…it is a bit more complex than that if you want the BEST results possible. Now, this doesn’t mean that the workouts will be harder to do for you, it just means that you may have to pay more attention to HOW and WHEN you are doing these workouts to effectively burn…

10 Minutes To Motivation

  • formats

This is an article of mine from geneticwar.com and was very fun to write.  I drank a RedBull and for 10 mintutes wrote the first thing that came to mind when I thought of gym motivation. Are you training with the right mentality? Get your mind right before entering the gym and kill every single workout!   What pisses you off? What gets you motivated to be the strongest you’ve ever been and most importantly what makes you want to be the best that you can be every day, in every way with anyone watching? Do you know? If you…

Carbs are not bad! I feel as though the closer the warm months get to us, the further away the carbs are…because people start running from them.   This is not only a miserable mentality, but it’s not even healthy. Yes, it is actually UNHEALTHY to cut all of your carbs from your diet. With that being said, let’s go over the top 3 reasons why it is actually beneficial to have carbs as a part of your diet!   1) Your metabolism will love you. Yes, yes it will!

Burn Fat by Using More Muscle Groups!

  • formats

Let me guess…when you think of your goals to burn fat, you most likely want to hit “this” and “that”…right?   Instead of focusing on one specific muscle that you want to pop that much more from your toning efforts, why not hit your entire body during your entire workout?  The most likely solution to your toning issues is to burn fat, so do what you need to do in order to not “hit” that one muscle but to dust the crap off of your body as a whole.  Use moves that hit multiple muscle groups in order to multiply…
