8. Flat bench press

And that is all you need for an effective workout!

Don’t start a new diet, do this…

It’s 2018, don’t start a new diet, start eating better. Make moderate choices this year. Aim for more protein and veggies in your meals. Less sugars are bread. Aim for more water. Have your bad meals but less often throughout the week. Have a good start to your 2018.

When’s the best time of the day to workout?

This is a very popular question I get a lot. When is the best time to workout? The simple answer to that is whenever you have free time. If it’s a off day like Saturday or Sunday or a week day then the best time to workout is when you have the most energy.

It’s almost Christmas- What to do before tomorrow comes…

It’s that time of the year, yessssss! Christmas is almost here and so is New Years! So what should you do to make sure you don’t put on weight or get out of shape? Eat healthy thats right! But more importantly use portion control in everything you do. If you’re going to eat badly then make sure you have portion control when eating those good foods and snacks.

Cardio alone doesn’t target fat!

photo for blog 50Every day I see people grinding away on cardio machines hoping to lose weight. And week by week. Month by month. Year by year most still look the same. Why?

Fat loss can’t occur by cardio alone. Cardio combined with eating within your goals can enhance fat loss in 2 ways though by burning calories and speeding up your BMR (using different HIIT forms)

But

If you don’t do cardio correctly then it won’t help. For example if you’re trying to lose weight and have eaten 600 more calories than your body has burn for the day. So you go jogging for 30 minutes later that day which burns around 300 calories with maybe another 100 burned from the “after burn” effect. You would still be 200 over your expenditure and that means no reduction in your fat stores for the day, and you may actually gain weight.
Eating to your goals and working out leads to the results you want!

Tricep Press Downs

photo for blog 45There’s nothing better than great toned arms, and you can do this through eating towards your goals and using the correct arm workouts. Here’s a workout that hits the back of your arms known as the “triceps” which has 3 parts (lateral, long, and medial head) this press down exercise works the lateral head intensely. Aim for 3-5 sets of 10-25 reps!

Proper floor Crunch form

photo for blog 28Are you looking to sculpt some good abs? Proper form is key along with nutrition of course. Most people start their crunches wrong, this photo shows the proper way to begin a crunch. Shoulders lifted off the ground and back rounded so that you are applying contraction to your core and not your spine.
