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.

There’s a constant focus on what is new, flashy and trendy. For example. P90X, Insanity, Zumba, Shake weight. Just kidding on the shake weight. Still wanted to see if you were still reading. And, to a certain extent, that’s fine. But in pursuing the new, the cutting-edge and the fresh, we can sometimes overlook the basics.
