Man Up Your Nutrition
Summer is here! But my beach body stomach isn’t… Why?
Making healthy eating a priority is important for both men and women. While most nutritional advice applies to both sexes, there are a few key differences for men.
Build a Better (Stronger) Back Workout
So I am always designing my programs around getting my core ripped up for summer! And the last two summers I have been pleased with the results. Here are some reasons I have come up short in the past. Once I know what is expected, it is much easier for me to get the desired result.
Take It Outside
Most people in the gym who lift weights are pretty comfortable working the muscles they can see; the biceps, chest, quadriceps, etc. but a lot of people neglect to work anything else but those “mirror muscles”. It’s time to start thinking about working the backside as well.
Fueling for Your Workouts
With nice weather right around the corner it’s time to switch up your normal workout routine and take it outside!
Massaged Kale & Quinoa Salad
Properly fueling your body can be the difference between having a mediocre workout and a fantastic workout! Being able to finish your workout strong starts with what food you put into your body.
Don't Skip That Warm Up
Massaging the kale helps to break down the fibrous tissue which helps give the kale a delicate mouth feel. Add grilled chicken or fish to the salad for extra protein!
Earth Day Every Day
I get it, you have a finite amount of time and spending a few minutes warming up isn’t what you had in mind for your workout. Let me tell you why you should think twice the next time you think about skipping your warm up.
The One Kettlebell Workout
Every year on April 22nd we celebrate Earth Day as a way to join together to protect and celebrate our environment. Here are some ideas on how to celebrate Earth Day every day!
Add More Fruit & Veggies
Why a kettlebell? The offset weight when holding a kettlebell challenges our shoulder stabilizers (i.e. rotator cuff) to do their jobs while also increasing core activation. If you don’t have a kettlebell available, a dumbbell will work just fine!
Time Under Tension
Springtime is finally here! Soak up that warm weather and take a look around at all the blooming trees, flowers, and plants – including those delicious fruits and vegetables. Not only do they add a pop of color, flavor, and overall appeal to your plate, but these powerhouses are also packed with vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants that your body needs (and craves) to make it through the day.
Training with Tech
Most people know the benefits strength training has on bone density, fat burning, and all around movement. However, strength training is often associated with “getting bulky”.
Accountability is one of the most important factors in successful lifestyle behavior change. It’s how we check in with ourselves to see how we are doing with our goals.
Total Body Circuit + Cardio
Food is nourishment for our bodies and the fuel to keep us going during our busy lives. Focusing on what we put into our bodies can have a huge impact on our energy levels throughout the day, alertness, and overall wellbeing.
Change Up Your Workouts
If you are pressed for time and would like to get a full body workout as well some cardio this is the one for you! Circuits are designed to hit all your muscle groups (upper body front, upper body back, and lower body) but in an order which allows for continual use of the muscles without fatiguing.
Fitting in Fitness – Master Techniques on Time Management
Everyone has their routines. Think about the things you do when you wake up in the morning and before you go to sleep at night. It’s probably the same 99% of the time right? What happens when you have guests over, or you’re traveling and your schedule is different? You’re forced to deviate from your routine and make yourself uncomfortable.
We get it! It’s hard to fit exercise into a busy schedule. Here are some tips on how to prioritize and fit fitness into your schedule:
