Today’s Tip: “THE WORLD IS YOUR GYM” – Clean House and Shape Up!

7 Aug

OK, let’s put a BOUNCE IN OUR STEP.  Get excited!  Just motivating your day with energy and enthusiasm will start you on your fitness path.

Do you have chores around the house?  Let’s try lunges and squats in between picking up those toys.  How about a dirty kitchen?  Let’s see how quickly we can clean up that mess.  Let’s do some calf raises while folding laundry.  We can play with the kids outside, like doing some jumping jacks.  How about walking your kids to school and jogging or speed walking back home listening to some of your favorite tunes?  Do you have stairs?  Climb them.  What about while watching some evening T.V.? Try stretching, or doing some couch sitting squats.  Turn your regular day into a fitness day.

Too many people, especially women, try and control their weight (size) by under eating.  This NEVER works. You may have a skinny body, but it will be an unhealthy one that is not capable of sustaining vital activity or longevity.  Eat your small portioned breakfast, divide your lunch into two small portions, and separate them by 3 hours. Eat your carb free dinner, and have 2 protein small snacks in the day.  This totals 6 times during the day you should be consuming food.  It works. Keep the portions down, but eat them often.

The number one way of thrashing your headphones is how you store them. This is a cool tip that will keep your buds bad ass not to mention clean. Recycle an old mint tin or card case to keep your earphones sound.  How do you like them apples, no more banged up olufsons!

Don’t SCREW your workout by wearing a GLOVE

28 Jul

I have no love for wearing a glove during your workouts. Not only are they a breeding ground for bacteria and fungus, they do not protect your hands from callousing. They kill your grip strength on pulling exercises and can add inches to already thick bars making it even harder. They can screw your technique.

The thickness of the gloves can make it difficult to keep the bar close to your wrist on bench and press leading to rolling of the wrists which causes injury. The only time I play it safe and wear a glove is if it’s freezing conditions or I have an abrasion so I don’t get an infection. If you are worried about rough palms then Brandon says, ” Get a manicure!” So next time you lift, do it bare!

Are your gym shoes getting a little rancid? Here’s a “FRESH” tip.

How do your gym shoes “rank”???

Are your runners getting a little rancid? An easy solution, besides my fit favorite anti- fungal orthotic insoles Life Step by Dr. Joseph, is Tea Tree oil!  You can put 20 drops of tea tree oil in a spray bottle with one cup of water. Shake well then spray away the rank in your shoes. For an double dose of deodorizer spray on your feet when you get out of the shower. Let your shoes and feet dry completely before sporting. After all it was the dank that made you stank!

Nuts About (or in) Your Car

25 Jul
Car rides can often times be boring, when we get bored we usually gravitate towards the action of eating. There is nothing nutty about always keeping a bag of raw Almonds in your car. Almonds are a great source and combination of fat and protein that are much lower in calories than many other nuts and healthier than most foods we grab to satisfy hunger cravings.

 

Your stomach and your abs will thank you for those nuts.
