Thanks to all of you who stopped by the CrossCore® booth at the IHRSA show in Los Angeles the past week. Rotational Bodyweight Training™ was the hit of the show. Special thanks to the Barholics who put on four spectacular calisthenics shows at the CrossCore® booth and showed what functional strength is really all about.
Well it has been a few months since I wrote a blog. But YES! I finally completed my goal of doing a Warrior Dash and it was AMAZING! 3.2 miles of muddy obstacles with 5 of my closest girl friends. We dressed up, called our team the BONE THUGZ...and got muddy! The event wasn't physically demanding on me, but not everything has to be...
If you've been to my class, you know I am a big proponent of High Intensity Interval Training. Not only has it been researched and proven in several studies to be highly effective for fat-burning, it is one of the most efficient workouts you will ever experience (efficient = time saving!)
That thing called LIFE!So today I was watching my dogs play together. Both running at full speed, chasing each other around the yard. I must say, it is a beautiful thing to watch my German Shepherd run. He is built for it. Using the word running may not even be the right word. It’s as though he floats. He was truly made to run. The pit, however, is not as graceful. She looks more like a freight train comin
Many people have the talent, god-given ability and potential to do great things but many aren't willing to put in the effort and are just waiting for things to happen instead of making things happen. Regardless of the potential and talent you still have the put the time and work in because without putting the work and time all it really is is just potential.
I get two days to sleep in: Saturday and Sunday. Ok, I know technically one is supposed to wake up at the same time every day, even on the weekends, as to not mess up the body's "rhythm." Sorry--I refuse to wake up at 3 am on Saturday and Sunday! Still, I woke up rather early (5:30) for an unfortunate reason: I was FAMISHED! Ah! The life of a figure girl! So I dragged myself out of bed, ready to make a bee-line to the kitchen, when I remembered it's pre-breakfast cardio day . . .
It happened again: daylight savings struck; somebody stole an hour of sleep from me and I have only now adjusted to it. I love daylight savings time with the extra hour of daylight in the evening but I need a week to get used to it. That prompted me to reflect on the importance of a good night’s sleep. It’s not that easy to come by, it seems, judging by the amount of sleep medication that is prescribed nowadays.
It took me a while, but I finally got my second shipment of DotFIT products in! Thank goodness because I was going through WITHDRAWAL! I underestimated how much product I had left and therefore, placed my order in a little late, so I was without my trusty DotFIT for almost a week :-( I had to use something, so I went back to the original BCAA/Glutamine mix I had been using, and I also tried NO2 Black as my "energy boost"( recommended to me by the Vitamin Shoppe guy).
LIE #1: I have no energy, working out will just make me more tired.REALITY CHECK: Studies have shown that exercise can help people who have chronic fatigue syndrome. Exercise will make you feel more energetic. This of course is under the premise that you have gotten enough sleep, and are not on any medications that can make you drowsy.LIE #2: Going to the gym and working out is too expensive.
