Nutrition tip of the Week

Mood Eating

Most people eat based on their mood and/or some subjective feelings of hunger. They don't eat based on what their bodies need. Think of it this way: you're about to take a long drive on a stretch of highway with no gas station. Do you fail to stop for gas before you hit the road because you're 'not in the mood?' Of course not. Think of eating in the same way. Eating fuels your metabolic engine. So it's time to start feeling like eating so that you can stop feeling like you're scrawny. by Dr. John Berardi

Foam Roll - Give it a Try

Foam Rolling can Help Ease Your Muscles

If you have never tried foam rolling I suggest you give it a try. Using a foam roller can provide similar benefits as deep-tissue massage. It will not replace your massage but it will help in between, or reduce your dependence on them. A foam roller helps increase flexibility and decrease muscle tension which in turn can can help prevent injury and improve performance. Make the following foam-roller exercises part of your regular warm up routine. Or do it it before go to bed at night. --run, roll, then stretch. Place your body on the roller and slowly roll up and down (for about 10-15 seconds) along the muscle group you are targeting. If you find a particularly tight area, pause on that spot. Putting pressure on a tight area can help release the tissue.

TRX - Working the entire core musculature

Working the Core With the TRX

The TRX high rotation.
This is a great athletic movement that involves the entire core musculature with particular emphasis on the internal and external obliques.

The obliques help to pull the spine forward like in a basic crunch or traditional sit up. But, they work the hardest when you add a twist or bend to the sides.

The external obliques run diagonally downward and inward from the lower ribs to the pelvis that allow you to bend forward and twist at the waist. These lie on top of the internal obliques.

If you are looking to get a TRX for home use or travel visit TRX Main Site.

Abdominal Exercises - Seated Hanging Leg Raises

The hanging leg raise is an excellent abdominal exercise. This variation is easier on your lower back, while increasing the contraction on the abs. This exercise targets the abdominal muscles with an extremely intense contraction. The range of motion of the exercise is short but the tension on the abs is powerful.

Get in Shape the Tabata Way

Tabata, Short Bursts to Big Results

Tabata is the name of a Japanese researcher who discovered a way to increase both anaerobic and aerobic pathways at the same time. It's an excellent training program that seems to fit across all training disciplines for athletes looking to increase their VO2max and lose fat quickly.

What is it? It's simple: after warming up, take one exercise and perform it in the following manner:
  1. For twenty seconds, do as many reps as possible, or run, bike as hard as you can
  2. Rest for ten seconds
  3. Repeat seven more times!
Eight sets of "as many reps as you can get done," followed with a brief ten second rest— simple and effective. This isn't "eight sets of eight," although the goal of doing eight reps in each of the twenty second clusters is about right. Instead it's "as many reps as I can get in" during the twenty seconds, followed by ten seconds rest. If running, biking, or rowing, go as hard as you can.

The best exercise options for the Tabata method are exercises that use a large number of muscles such as, squats, front squats, dead lifts, thrusters, sprints, stationary bike, rowing machine,

Use the "lowest rep number" of any of the eight sets as your measurement to compare workout to workout. If you go too heavy, that last set may be two. If you go too light, you might get around 15 reps or more.

And by the way, ten seconds is not getting a drink, looking in the mirror, talking to the cute girl on the bike, looking at the clock, walking back to the bar, chalking up, adjusting the belt, talking to a friend, then doing the next set. Ten second is ten seconds! No cheating!

Why should you do this workout? The Tabata program might be the single best "fat burning workout" that I know, not to mention the increase in VO2max. It might only be four minutes, but you seem to keep sweating and breathing hard for a long time afterwards. Tabata truly teaches a person the mental focus needed to push and to help reach their athletic goals.

Using a GYMBOSS makes timing Tabata intervals easy, simply set timer to a work interval of 20 seconds followed by rest interval of 10 seconds alarming with your choice of beep, vibrate or both! Timer continues these intervals until you stop! Or drop!
