One of the best perks of belonging to IDEAFit is that they give you a free video training of your choice. I chose "The Science and Application of Metabolic Training" by Fraser Quelch. It was so informative and really helpful for me to design EFFECTIVE programs for my clients and to offer helpful hints to all my students.
- weight training provides just as much post-workout caloric burn as cardio training
- circuits of weights with a little high intensity cardio is the best bang for your buck
- two small workouts a day is better than one long one
I am really excited about the next couple of weeks. There are a LOT of things happening at Baylor University (where I teach/work) in the Fitness Department. One of the things I am looking forward to the most is the "Fitness Expo". It will be an all day seminar with a variety of sessions to attend. I am presenting on "Women and Weights: myths, benefits, and how-to's". SO EXCITED! I believe there are a lot of misconceptions out there about weight lifting for women and most women don't even know where to begin! I'll most likely post my powerpoint here so check my blog the first of February for it.
Have a great weekend! Choose to be healthy!
