You've probably heard it before. It goes something like this..."If you want to lose a few pounds you need to do long, slow, steady-state aerobic exercise in the fat burning zone." Well, if you know me then you know I love debunking fitness myths, busting excuses and not playing nice with the latest weight lose "gimmicks"
Are you unable to make progress despite your spot on nutrition and active lifestyle? Are you stressed? Stress can cause irregular levels of Cortisol which is why we call it the "Stress Hormone". Did you know that irregular Cortisol levels can effect things like immunity, appetite, energy levels, metabolism, maintenance of muscle tissue, and weight loss?
Tired of working out but not seeing the results you want? Low energy? Concerned about health risks? Everyones body is different. One workout is not appropriate for everyone. DNA genetic testing is the answer. Hormones change, butt DNA does not. Learn exactly what you need to do to lose weight, improve your overall general health, improve your bone health and heart health based on your genetics. No more guessing. Get the answers you need for the rest of your life. Identify the problems and find the solutions.
Today we had the first actual RL52 Cycling sports specific session at Launch Sport Performance in Rockville, MD - Pre-Season Football Cycle! It was amazing to actually see football players on the bike in the cycling studio going through the sports specific sets, mimicing actual on-the-field work on the bike and listening to their feedback and reaction to this type of training. Oh yeah and the bike moves from side to side - its not just your ordinary bike...but an amazing cross-training tool.
Some great advice form @Jon Goodman master trainer and all around good guy on the draw backs on low calorie foods. Not always good for you.

Carbs are NOT evil in these 3 situations
1. MORNING- You have fasted all night(hopefully), so when you wake up there is more room 'in the tank" to store carbs. Good examples are Steel cut oatmeal and Yogurt.
