Importance of the warmup and cooldown

I am still surprised after so many years of scientific proof, that the majority of gym goers do not start their workout off with a brief warmup and then finalizing their workouts with a similar cool down. The overall intent of a warmup and cool down is to indirectly reduce risk of injury.   Starting a workout with a light warmup forces blood vessels of working muscles to dilate, thus...

Some of the skinniest women I have known...

Don’t mind most of the fitness calculators when it comes to establishing your RMR

I have been blessed with the internet! Yesterday I went online testing RMR calculators to determine people’s metabolic burn and it’s funny how off they all are. First of all, they do not take into consideration how much of someone’s weight is fat or muscle. With muscle burning a whopping 30 to 70 times more calories than fat per pound, its no wonder they do not work. I...

HINTS TO LOSE FAT, TONE MUSCLES & INCREASE METABOLISM

- Focus on behavior change and habits versus actual results. Results will come Think of the process as a ball rolling uphill with the top of the hill being your goal. Once you start, the ball starts to roll upwards. If you quit, the ball comes to a stop, then starts to roll backwards. - strength train all body parts once a week. Cardio 5-6 times a week !  I recommend high intensity cardio for...
