While my clients initially come to me for exercise programs and fitness-related advice, I always get asked this question after the first couple of training sessions: What should I eat for breakfast? It's a good one.
Plug these tips/tricks in next time your training.
1.Pair lower body exercises with an upper body exercises, resting as little as possible. You’ll get more done in less time and burn more calories.
2.Always do exercises that work multiple muscles. E.g., squats, push-ups and lunges. No bicep curls allowed. Again you’ll burn more calories and build more lean muscle.
3.Use the same piece of equipment when you pair exercises. You’ll cut down on rest time and again you’ll burn more calories.

Hey, guys I've made a few. Well ok, more than a few. But who's counting? You will learn from most of my mistakes if you do this.......
1. Don't go to heavy and sacrifice good form. We are doing this for life, not just for today.
2. Don't go to light. If your not challenged, your body not challenged and progress will stall. Use a weight you can lift between 6-12 reps.
3. Light weights and high repetitions will not give you the "tone" your looking for. Always use weights that you can lift between 6- 12 times.
Got it? Good.

Hello, I just have to say that the National Benefit Authority definitely provides a helpful service. I was in an accident two years ago and I severely damaged a part of my lower back. Ever since then, I’ve had back problems and other complications. I’m a practicing nurse and it caused a lot of problems. I had to miss almost four months of work after my accident in order to heal and rehabilitate my back. And even now, there are days when I can’t go to work because my back pain is too much to bear.
