Ah, the age old debate, which to do: cardio or sit on the couch and eat chips?

If I had to choose, I would pick weight training every time. 


 

In all honesty, you can achieve many of the benefits of traditional cardio with weight training.

Want to get your heart rate up and condition your heart and lungs? Do circuit training or include a metabolic finisher. 

Oh, weight training has the additional benefit of building muscle, which...

It’s June 1st! With the start of the new year a new decade, there are a bunch of things that were true in 2019, and they are still true halfway thru 2020.

✅ Intermittent fasting only works if you are in a calorie deficit. You have a smaller eating window to eat your calories. That’s all it is. It can work great for some, and not for others. It will continue to be, a meal planning option, that can work well if you are in a calor...

One of the more common barriers that seems to hold many people back from making progress towards their health and fitness goals is the perceived “extreme high cost” of eating healthy.

If we’re being honest, more often than not, I see this use as an excuse to eat bad. By telling yourself that you can’t afford to go shop for healthy foods, it’s much easier to stick to drive thru’s and low quality food choices… and you’ve created...

Our bodies are not mostly composed of fat, they’re mostly composed of water. Therefore, most of the weight changes we see from day to day are water changes, not fat changes!

A few reasons you see fluctuations on the scale:

Recent increase in cardio (increases his blood volume). This is a biggie, can add up to 5lbs in some people, just with plasma plus new red blood cells, and can cause a month-long stall in scale weight.

There are a bunch of things that go into a thriving weight loss plan...

-Calories need to be in check. 

-Whole Foods need to be the focus. 

-You need to be exercising regularly!

And this is where people get into trouble…

They jump on...

One big question I get asked all the time is when should I do cardio?

First and foremost, cardio can be in any form. Not just jumping on the treadmill for 20 minutes, it could be boxing for an hour, walking the dog, elliptical machine, cycling etc.

If your goal is to run a marathon or some type of endurance competition, then cardio would be your...

BCAAS offer no benefit for an individual who is consuming enough protein.

Why? Because protein already contains all the amino acids your body needs.

The human body uses 21 amino acid’s in total and nine of those amino acid’s are known as essential amino acids, as our body cannot make them. Therefore, we have to get them to our diet.

Protein sources like meat and dairy contain all the essential amino acids we need.

Creating a healthier lifestyle can feel impossible sometimes. We often feel like life is working against us, but in reality, it’s our mindset. It’s easy to compare our lives to fitness influencers we see online and wonder why it’s so easy for them. Truth is it takes a lot of time to create a lifestyle that enables you to effortlessly maintain it, I’m talking years here, not just weeks or months.

Start one habit out a time give...

When you eat pizza you experience the same principle metabolic process that you would by eating any food. In that you consume it, it passes through the esophagus, at which point it enters the stomach before entering the small intestines. At this point nutrients are absorbed and passed into the bloodstream.
