As some of you may already know, this month is Nutrition Awareness Month. The name itself says that we should create more awareness towards nutrition. That could go along the lines of just saying mindful eating.In short, you need to be aware of food. You need to start with the basics and that means you need to know food is just energy. Seriously. Food is nothing more than fuel.
We didn’t have it too bad when we were kids. We had cartoons, toys, and milk break. The hardest question we had to decide was, “Chocolate or White?” Well, for me it was anyways, and I almost always went with white milk (because I genuinely liked the taste of white milk, not because I was a weird kid or anything...), which then presented the question, “Skim or 2%.”Yeah, back in the day…

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.
Tomorrow we kick off a challenging six week program. 2 teams of 7 will work individually and as a group to rally up by improving their body comps and weight. The person who creates the most change will win a years membership to Balance Personal Training's FIT LAB. Throughout our journey I'll be blogging our progress. Let's all rally around all these hard working individuals!
Not too long ago, a fellow trainer and coach extraordinaire, Eric Cressey posted about “How Being an Optimist Will Help You in Strength and Conditioning”. I read the blog post and definitely agreed how Cressey relating strength and conditioning and being an optimalist will create a better overall environment. A better environment means more results.
The rectus abdominis is quite an extraordinary muscle. They are so nice to look at!! Sooo nice! The rectus abdominis is also known as the abs. Ah…now I’ve got your attention. I’ll refer the rectus abdominis to “abs” from here on out because that’s how the muscle is typically identified. The abs are indeed a pretty damn cool looking muscle.
