Resting when working out |Are you abusing it or not using it enough?

August 14, 2015 at 3:24 am

When your force yourself to rest during a workout you are forcing your body to reach it’s maximum potential. When you go to the gym, you have basically two types of training. That which is labeled cardio and that which is labeled strength training. When it comes to strength training, which you can achieve by using treadmills, ellipticals, and stairmasters as well, the point is to make your body and muscles reach their maximum fatigue point through a series of contractions using resistance through bands, weights, and machines. Your body uses ATP as energy when you engage in high intensity workouts. Once depleted, basically, your muscle or muscles can’t contract anymore. Hence, you need rest. When you actually reach 100% fatigue during an exercise, you have a couple things you need to consider. Just because your body can’t perform another repetition using a certain weight, it does not mean it […]

Go the Extra Mile to Boost Success

August 12, 2015 at 1:02 am

It is my belief that those who go the extra mile or go a few extra steps always have a better life. Whether it’s running an extra few blocks, doing an extra few minutes of cardio, parking on the further end of the parking lot and walking a few more steps, staying up a few extra minutes to finish a homework or career deadline, etc… It doesn’t matter where in life you apply going the extra mile, those who do usually end up getting the better end of the stick. I like to do a little extra on everything I do. At my job, I like to get to work a little extra early. I also like to leave a little extra later to answer client questions. I like to stay up a little later writing articles and doing videos to address common issues, misconceptions, or to simply give my […]

How to be Mentally Strong and Push Through Your Limits

August 10, 2015 at 7:38 pm

Being mentally strong is the key to success when attempting something great. Just like the muscles in your arms and legs… your brain, your mind, your spirit can also be trained to be stronger. So I was walking with my mom because she is officially 100% committed to her fitness and health. She was telling me that she was sore from the exercises that I had given her. I let her know that she’s lucky because she has no idea how sore I was. So she goes on to tell me that I am used to the pain… But me, being a smart ass, go on to tell her that it’s not that I’m used to the pain, it’s more that I have trained my mind to overcome the pain and keep going even when my body says, no more! It’s not easy to wake up at 230am, get a […]

Pushing your health and fitness limits the right way

August 5, 2015 at 1:59 pm

I mentioned the other day that sometimes you have to go harder and really push your limits if you want significant results. But does that mean that anyone can do that? Let me try to explain this as best as I can. I am on a journey to gain muscle while reducing my body fat. I been on the ketogenic diet for the past 10 days and I have been on point. My body fat seems to be going down, noticeable because I have more vascularity in legs and my hips are smaller. So after ten days of my plan, I only have about 4 more days on it before the final part of the SGC diet which I’m on. I have been so on-point and so consistent, that I decided to do a little more in terms of creating a bigger caloric deficit though exercise, but I, ¬†a fitness […]

How to make Cardio fun and not boring

February 22, 2015 at 3:00 pm

It’s a common thing to see people saying that cardio is boring. People in general hate to do cardio and simply want to lift weights even though most do it wrong anyways. But that’s a whole other topic. I on the other hand, used to hate doing cardio, until I found ways to make the time go by fast. I now actually enjoy doing cardio especially when I see the results it yields on my body. So how do you make cardio fun? Whether I’m on a treadmill, an elliptical, or a bike, I try to separate the intensity into 3 different levels. Let’s say for example I plan on doing 30 minutes of cardio or even 40 minutes. I do 5 minute intervals of three intensities. The first interval is a medium intensity where I work but it’s not extremely demanding. I do this usually for two minutes and […]

How to use a treadmill effectively

February 6, 2015 at 3:40 pm

The treadmill can be a very effective tool to use in the gym or it can be a complete waste of time. I see many people in the gym doing all kinds of crazy things on the treadmill and let me talk to you about do’s and dont’s. The point of exercising: Unless you are training for some type of special event where it’s important for you to do certain movements, do not engage in side movements, or leg kicks, or any other crazy movement. Stick to the basics so that you don’t look like a dummy on any machine. I see people doing side to side steps, I’ve seen people running ¬†backwards on the gym, and for what purpose? Not only is it completely unnecessary, these people are obviously out of shape and should not be using those movements. Stick to the basics: What are the basics of the […]
