Even if you haven't done much research at all into health and fitness routines, it should be fairly obvious that combining weight training with cardio exercise, such as running, will be most effective at burning calories and reducing bodyfat.
Studying the studies
If you are following this blog please help me cheer these gals on. They absolutely rocked their group workout this morning! Energies were high and with obvious determination they powered though RIP TIDE. In the coming hours I am sure they will be icing, foam rolling and stretching! It's a good thing we covered those 3 very important revovery items. :) If things continue as they are now there is no doubt what so ever that goals will be met and every one of these ladies will continue their journey. Check ya later and have a great weekend!
It’s no secret that inactivity is bad for your health, but it may be worse than previously thought. According to a new study, it’s even more deadly than obesity—twice as deadly, in fact.
Researchers at Cambridge University studied more than 334,000 men and women over 12 years. After measuring height, weight, waist circumference and self-reported levels of physical activity over that time span, it was found that moderate physical activity helped to lower a person’s chances of premature death.
I am once more moving away from my fitness field to talk about art which to me is therapeutic and stress-relieving (well, maybe I am talking about wellness after all …..) I bought a beautiful piece of artwork called ‘Odette in a Dogwood Forest’ by Jaimon Caceres which unites in one piece my love of painting and my love of ballet. It is in a place where I see it often in the course of the day, and every time I pass by it makes me smile and feel happy.
The answer is yes!! Food is energy input and exercise is energy output. If you don't have fuel in the tank, how can you expect to spend fuel that isn't there? When we wake up in the morning, our bodies are on empty and we are in starvation mode. Our bodies use energy at night even when we are sleeping to repair muscles, burn fat, and if needed, burn lean muslce mass if there wasn't enough fuel from the day before. There are many dangers of working out on an empty stomach.
Starches include rice, bread, potatoes, corn, beans, and other legumes. While many of these are no way bad foods, most of us eat too much of them. The goal here is to cut way down on them, if not totally out, and then add them back in when your body feels like it needs energy. This will teach you the relationship you have with carbs. They are vital for our energy but eating too many of them leaves us lethargic (and eventually fat). Once you figure this out, your entire relationship with food will change.

The more colorful your plate, the more nutritious your plate could be. There are foods that can take up a lot of space on your plate and will be low in calories. Veggies are the best option. You can eat a salad with a ton of veggies and you most likely won't exceed 100 calories. By eating low-density foods like veggies and fruits, you'll keep your portions under control. It's important to beware of salad dressings and other things you add to salads and veggies. When it comes to meat, the richer the colors, the fresher the products tend to be.
