Proper caloric intake is not just beneficial to weight loss goals, but is necessary for survival, efficiency and optimal function in daily life. I think it is important to approach the topic of caloric intake with a diversity of goals in mind: caloric and nutrient intake for health, weight maintenance, weight loss, and/or weight gain. Like exercise, diet and nutrition is not "one size fits all," but is unique to each individual.
I'm starting two new bootcamp classes in LA. One will run Monday/Wednesday at 8am the other Tuesday/Friday at 7pm starting this coming week. Classes are $125 for 8 sessions or $20/drop in. It's good for all ages and levels. You'll even find some familiar UCB faces I've been torturing for some time now.
If you woke up today seconding guessing yourself if you should go hit the gym or continue eat healthy, let me be the one to tell you don’t, I’m saying this from a good place because honestly if you do your most likely be feeling guilty tomorrow for breaking your healthy lifestyle and that stress will be more detrimental to your health then not going to the gym or eat fast food, yes stress is massive health killer because it the route cause to many health condition including belly fat stored around our waist.
I have always loved ballet. Even though I never danced myself, classical ballet is my favorite dance art form; the more tutu the better. Living now in Raleigh, North Carolina, we have been so fortunate to having the professional Carolina Ballet since 1997. I had season tickets all those years, looking forward to every single performance. Even the greater my pleasure when I recently had an opportunity to introduce some of the dancers to MELT.
I HATE IT when clients use the leg press machine without knowing how to use it. Don't get me wrong, it isolates the quads, hamstrings, and gluteus but it can also wreck havoc on the knee joint capsule and the ligaments in the knee if not used properly. That means it can result in knee tendonitis and a whole host of other issues. If you don't know how to use the leg press machine-DON'T USE IT. My advice is perform squats and/or lunges to build strength in the lower body.
