Last night as I watched our Olympians race my thoughts went behind the scenes.  Their drive, what they give up - but most importantly what makes them different from the rest of us.  I believe it takes heart and  an amazing amount of support.  The majority of our Olympic athletes are the youth of today.  Not seasoned college athletes who turned pro.  Some of their stories are really amazing.  One athlete races for himself and his handicapped brother.  Our female snowboarder is deathly afraid of heights.

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. The Balance guy setting you straight.

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.

We all want to feel the burn when working out, but what about the shakes? I'm not talking about feeling dizzy from not eating enough or from coming up too fast after doing a forward bend. When your body is working really hard, either holding a challenging position or toward the end of a set, your muscles start to unintentionally quiver.

I love lifting weights it is such an empowering thing for a women to come up to a barbell and know she can lift over 100lbs off the floor. Wonder women here i come! Honestly when i started my weightloss journey i didn't lift weights at all. I started with cardio like treadmills, bikes and any machine i could find. Great for endurance but doesn't do much for strength. I know a lot of women don't think we need a lot of strength or think that will make you look bulky or grow muscles in places you didn't even know you had them. Trust me ladies strong is the new skinny.
