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

How long have you been on your current program?
Are you doing the same reps and weight as you were a month ago, a year ago?

Take a look around your local gym or fitness center and you will notice many are doing the exact same thing and why the last time you saw them, and chances are they were doing the same thing the time before that and the time before that.

In order to see results either fat loss or muscle building there has to be a change in the stimulus. Over time there has to be a greater demand placed on the body, or a progressive overload.

Progressive overload is essential to training. Your body quickly adapts to resistance or weight training and before long your body will not respond to current stimulus.

There are many ways you can develop a training program that will implement the principles of progressive overloads. One way and maybe the most common is to simply increase the weights. While this method is simple and common it is not always practical. You're currently using 10 pound dumbbells and jumped to 15 pounds that may be too much, and you may not be able to lift the weight.

The second issue that comes from increasing weights is that the weight will add up quicker than your ability to move it. If you add just 5 pounds a week to say your squat, by the end of the year you're looking at about 250 pounds more than where you started. That's not realistic!

If you don't have a certified personal trainer to help you develop programs that incorporate progressive overloading check out the article on my blog as it will give you some valuable insight. Just visit the link below.
