How often should I do cardio each week?

February 18th, 2018|Categories: Uncategorized|Tags: , , , , , , , , , , |Comments Off on How often should I do cardio each week?

Cardio is one of those things we don’t like to do, but we do it because we’re told it’ll help us burn more calories which in fact should burn more weight correct? While I could dispute those claims I’ll say this cardio can be effective when used correctly. More than anythings it’s beneficial for heart health. With that being said, cardio should be used 2-3 times a week, with a maximum of 3 times a week.

The healthiest dessert you can have are….

February 14th, 2018|Categories: Uncategorized|Tags: , , , , , , , , , , |Comments Off on The healthiest dessert you can have are….

So you’re looking for a good dessert to compliment your new way of eating. I say new way of eating because dieting has a bad connotation associated with it. You’re thinking dark chocolate, 70% or darker but the only thing is because they are so sweet you can only have 2-4oz which is 2-4 squares, and you know you’re not going to stick to that. So what’s a better solution, natural nut butter. Wether that’s almond butter, peanut butter, cashew butter, 2 tablespoons should be enough to fill you and satisfy your sweet cravings.

Make working out fun

February 13th, 2018|Categories: Uncategorized|Tags: , , , , , , , , , , |Comments Off on Make working out fun

Find something fun about working out. That’s what you need to do, you need to find out what is fun about working out. You say “nothing!” but I say sure there is something. For cross fitters, its competing against yourself and being able to be in an environment where it’s encouraging and uplifting others. For power lifters, it’s being able to continually put up more weight, lift heavier weight. For runners its freeing your mind and being able to let stress out. For boxers its hitting something and letting stress of life get out. For body builders its therapeutic and able to sculpt your body. So you have to find an aspect to fitness that is fun for you and you can find it.

How many sets of each workout?

February 12th, 2018|Categories: Uncategorized|Tags: , , , , , , , , , , |Comments Off on How many sets of each workout?

Putting together a workout plan can be complicated if you’ve never done it before. I recommend for the most effective workout to do 3 sets of each workout, within those sets you can decide reps based on your goals. If you’re looking to add muscle mass, then stick to low reps of 1-8 and heavy weight. If you’re looking to just tone, stay in a median rep range of 8-12, and if you’re looking to lose weight then do a mixture with heavy weight. Also while we’re here aim to do minimum 3 exercises per muscle on your body. So for legs that maybe, squats, leg press, and lunges. For back that maybe underhand row, wide pull down machine, and stiff-legged deadlifts. For chest this maybe, incline barbell bench press, dips, and incline chest flies. So remember 3 sets, of 3 exercises working 1-12 rep ranges for each muscle.

Take breaks during work to workout

Workouts don’t have to be traditional where you go to a gym and workout for 30 minutes to 1 hour. Instead break it up into 10 minutes, go to the gym for 10 minutes and workout your biceps. Or do one exercise and come back later to do another.

One reason fat doesn’t contribute to fat

February 8th, 2018|Categories: Uncategorized|Tags: , , , , , , , , , , |Comments Off on One reason fat doesn’t contribute to fat

One reason that eating fat doesn’t make you fat, is that fat doesn’t spike your insulin levels. Fat is slowly absorbed in the blood, so this slows down the insulin spike process so that you don’t put on fat. So eat avocados, butter, bacon, olives, olive oil, hummus…these foods are all good for you in moderation!

Keep your heart rate at this to burn

February 1st, 2018|Categories: Uncategorized|Tags: , , , , , , , , , , |Comments Off on Keep your heart rate at this to burn

When your working out, intensity is key to reaching your goals. Especially when the subject is weight loss. You want your heart rate to be between 55-85 % of your maximum heart rate. To calculate this you need to know your max heart rate, which is 220-age= maximum heart rate, then that number multiplies by .55 all the way to .85. Keep your heart rate in that matrix for 30 minutes, and you’ll be burning fat!
