Today’s 10 tips of fitness

17 Oct

Thursday October 17th.
Today’s 10 tips of fitness:

1.) Drink water

2.) Meditate for at least 5 minutes.

3.) When your working out in the gym or outside throw in interval training. 30 seconds as hard as you can go, one minute slow, this can be done with running, burpees then walk in place, bike, stairmaster.

4.) Show up, prepare for your workout. Time can really go by in the gym (if you have time take it) I just hear my clients talk about how little tile they have, so plan your workout you can be in and out in an hour and have burned fat and built muscle all at the same time.

5.) Cook your food, prepare your food the night before or even a few days ahead, batch cook, it will change your life, how much money you spend and how much your body will change, I buy 2lbs of chicken or beef and cook it up and have it over the next few days.

6.) Eat your veggies, I call it our liquid drain-o we need the nutrients as well. Batch cook your veggies also, cook up a batch of veggies and keep it in the fridge, then you have lunch for a couple of days ready to grab.

7.) Be kind to yourself!

8.) Do some rotator cuff warm ups at least once a week. (Vary light weight, what’s light weight? 6lbs or less) remember the core of your shoulder is your rotator cuff muscles (SITS)

9.) If you want results, change your diet, and workout at least 3-4 times a week. Remember your workouts can be a half an hour.

10.) NEVER GIVE UP!

10 tips of fitness I learned in NYC

22 May

Today’s 10 tips of fitness. Things I learned about fitness when in NY.

1.) It’s hard to avoid NY pizza! I enjoyed every bite.

2.) Taking the subway is a great way to stay fit, the stairs are bananas! I always say ” those who live in S.F. Have the best legs and butts, all of the hills we have.” Well, NY subways are just as intense, leg and butt building.

3.) I had some free day passes from my sisters gym, David Barton. Wow! What an amazing place. I did not know if I was entering a club or going to workout. Really great amenities, the locker rooms are great, nice and clean, the staff and trainers were really nice.

4.) Fresh vegetables are not the same in NY. I am so thankful for ALL of the vegetables I get to have EVERYDAY in California.

5.) Don’t forget your reusable water bottle when in NY, all of the walking you need your hydration! so glad I had mine, otherwise the plastic bottles are out of control.

6.) I did not eat one bagel or a kinish! I kind of cant believe it I think it’s a first. I made up with all of the pizza.

7.) Packing my snacks saved me from eating junk in the bodegas.

8.) My sister lives up three flights of stairs, my friend wiki calls it the “working class workout”, I think I will steal her line. Thank you Wiki. This was my daily workout for sure.

9.) East cost has a different politeness muscle that is being worked, it’s a tuff one, it’s a muscle you can develop over time, and it’s exhausting to work like any muscle in the body.

10.) NEVER GIVE UP! Never.

Today’s 10 tips of fitness. May 20th 2013.

1.) How is your high intense interval training? This is a great way to challenge the heart, get your cardio done in just 20 minutes. Your fast run, stairmaster, or jump rope will be 20-40 seconds long, followed by a one minute sllllllloooooow pace, then repeat for the full 20 minutes. (If you feel light headed or faint, stop.)

2.) prepare before you workout. Pack a light snack, a piece of fruit and some almonds, this way you can feed your body quickly after your workout, your depleted, calories going in and calories going out. Whole food. Not powder.

3.) drink water, all day and night.

4.) buy a foam roller, roll your whole body. Myo facia release. This is like having a massage therapist. Best $20 bucks you can spend.

5.) fitness tip: 20 air squats, 20 push ups, 20 upright rows, 20 sit-ups. Do two or three rounds, drink water at the begging of each set for a quick rest.

6.) nutrition tip: look up alkalizing foods, and eat them.

7.) Rest, Rest, Rest, Rest, you can over train.

8.) buy a jump rope, it’s easy to carry, you can bring it on a trip, or to the gym, or use it at home. Great way to get your heart rate up and burn some calories.

9.) people always ask, how do I get a six pack? I tell them, “they are made in the kitchen, it’s all about nutrition and cardiovascular training”

10.) never give up! Never.
