I have recently been thinking about how I feel about cheat meals. For me personally if I cheat once the likelihood of me doing it for the rest of the day are very high because fatty processed foods are engineered to make you crave more, but if you don’t give into your cravings every once in a while the whole binge episode happens. I think what I’ve decided to do is if I am in a situation where eating healthy is not an option then it is ok, but I would rather choose a healthier option of they dessert or craving and go with that instead. I donno it is kind of tricky. Please comment on your thoughts!-
Will Squats Give Me A Booty?: Your Questions Answered by Daniel Jacas.
This article was great and addressed many of the common myths women have about strength training and spot reduction. The faster we realize these are false the faster we get the bodies we want. The weight lifting not making me bulk up was really hard for me to grasp for a long time until I took exercise prescription and our professor said that when clients come to him and say they want to lose weight and “Tone-up” they fall in the strength training category because that is the best way for weightloss. Unless you are maxing out in the gym everyday and lifting some serious weight “YOU ARE NOT GOING TO BULK UP.” Stick to weights that are heavy enough for you to complete 8-12 reps. This article summed things up perfectly. Take a read
The truth about carbs..
Wish everyone thought like this…. So true
If you are the type of the person that goes into the gym and hops on the treadmill for an hour while doing the same pace, chances are your probably not seeing any results. The best type of cardio is high-intensity such as plyo or interval training. Interval training also keeps things interesting and gives you a longer EPOC(exercise post oxygen consumption). This term means that even after your workout is finished you will continue to burn calories at a higher rate than if you were to just do regular steady-state cardio. For the longest time I thought that I was doing myself justice by running on the treadmill for five miles at the same pace, because ya know longer is better, but thats not the case. Do yourself a favor go for half the time and yield better results! I will post an additional interval workout that I did just yesterday for you to give a try. If it looks too ambitious cut the time short or do walking intervals instead. The great thing about intervals is you can do any combination of intensities! Just make sure you put in intensities that are going to challenge you followed by periods of rest.
