Focus on Fat Loss!

Focus on fat loss!

Today too many people are consumed by what their weight scale says, hoping the number goes down. Here’s my question to you: what if the number doesn’t go down? Is it a bad thing? NO, if you’re feeling stronger, have more energy and losing inches then your doing great. Actually if you’re losing inches then you’re losing fat, remember fat is larger in size then muscle. So if you add 2lbs of muscle and lose 1lb of fat, guess what? Your scale will go up least 1 point. Now if you didn’t know what that meant, you might freak out, instead be proud of yourself because you’ve loss fat. People look much better when they add muscle (lean not too much) and lose fat, you’re able to keep your curves as a woman, you’re able to look more defined and chisled. When a person only loses weight, they become skinny fat, meaning flabby but skinny and thats not a good look, you want to be toned. So lift weights, do cardio and eat towards your goals.

Posterior Delts (back of shoulder) Presses

photo for blog 40Are you working the back of your shoulders? Yesterday I posted the dumbbell flies with 3 initial starting positions to target the Middle deltoids. Today’s video is targeting the POSTERIOR Delts, it’s still hitting all 3 deltoids but specifically targeting the posterior delts which are neglected a lot.

Grab a barbell, and get a wide grip. Depending on length of your forearms and clavicles, bring to least your ears and then press back up for 1 rep. Aim for 3 sets of 8-10. You got this!

Eating Myth: Eat corn bread to grow your booty!

Myth! Not true but this myth is passed down everywhere because people think you can eat a certain food and it’ll go to a certain spot. Genetics plays a huge role in where your fat storage is going to be on your body. To grow your booty, you have 3 options A. do workouts that work your booty like squats, deadlifts and lunges and eat protein and carbs to rebuild your booty muscle. B. Get Plastic surgery which cost an averge world wide of 8k or C. eat bad food, don’t workout and hope your fat storage is mainly in your booty.

Do Squat Challenges work?

I should phrase it, will a squat challenge help shape your booty?

Through social media, trainers and health experts we have seen a lot of advertisements about doing a 30 day squat challenge to tone up the booty. But do they work?

Both yes and no. They work to a certain extent, when you’re doing body weight squats you are essentially squatting the weight of your body, so for the first 1-30 days you will be challenging yourself if you are new to it. Eventually you will plateau and will need more weight to challenge and shape your leg and booty muscles.

So if you’ve never worked out then start with these booty squat challenges, but pay attention to your body when it’s time to start adding weight to your squats. So that you can continually tone your legs and shape your booty!

How long should I be in the gym for?

As long as you want would be the open answer to that. But to get an effective workout, I recommend 45 minutes- 1 hour max. Sometimes just 30 minute workouts are enough if you are just working 1 or 2 muscle groups, or just going in for quick cardio like stair master or spirints. Too much time in the gym means you’re ethier taking too long on your breaks or you’re over working your body.
