6 Reasons to Cross Train

6 Reasons to Cross Train If your results have hit a brick wall even though you’ve been following your fitness routine faithfully, maybe it’s time to try cross training. What’s that, you say? It’s when you change your regular workout and add in other types of exercise. Here are 6 of the best reasons to cross train: 1. Prevent injury. Doing the same workout over and over again stresses joints, muscles, and ligaments without giving them full recovery. Overuse is one of the primary reasons for injury. Working the same muscles in a different way, or completely different muscle groups, can give your muscles the rest they need to help prevent problems that keep you from training! 2. Balance your muscles. By working different muscle groups, you will maintain muscular symmetry. If you’ve been doing mostly squats and lunges, focusing on your lower body, your upper body may lack the definition that your legs and buns have. Add in an upper-body workout, one that includes r…

Real Transformations

My Before & After :   It was not easy but it was worth the hard work.  I was not in a good place, I lost my job and I was 30 lbs over weight.  I didn't  like who I allowed myself to become.

Interval Training: The Best Way to See Quick Results

Interval Training: The Best Way to See Quick Results


Authors
There are a lot of misunderstandings about the best way to reshape your body. This is because there are a lot of trainers out there who espouse different fitness philosophies. In general, the various regimens touted all have some merit. In this article, we’ll take a very simple look at various training strategies, bust a myth or two, and explain why interval training is the most efficient way to change your fitness level. What is interval training?
In short, you are interval training any time your workout includes a set wherein you perform at your maximum level, which is then followed by a lower-intensity set, which is then repeated to achieve a cumulative effect. An interval can be a set of curls, a dance move, or anything that tires you out over its given interval of time. The intervals can be short and hard, or long and easy, but they’re all intervals, just so long as there is some cumulative effect (you get mo…

Raw Cauliflower Tabbouleh

The tabbouleh recipe Clean Plates founder Jared Koch included in The Clean Plates Cookbook is one of those trompe l’oeil dishes that play tricks on the eyes. It’s a gluten-free and raw-diet-friendly recipe from Los Angeles’s M CafĂ©, and what looks like a traditional grain-based tabbouleh is actually ground cauliflower. The cauliflower adds texture to the herby salad, but its purpose goes beyond that: It’s also a sneaky way to get a big dose of veggies onto your plate.

What Soda Can Do To Your Body in 30 Days
Would you drink 10 Cokes a day to prove a point? Probably not. Especially now that George Prior has decided to do it for you. In an experiment similar to Super Size Me (a documentary that explored Morgan Spurlock’s month-long McDonalds-only eating binge and its affect on his health), Prior documented what happens when someone drinks 10 Cokes each day for a month. Prior wanted to raise awareness about how much sugar Americans drink daily and what soda can do to our bodies. By his estimate, “a big percentage of Americans drink at least the sugar equivalent of my ten Cokes.” Though his numbers are probably slightly exaggerated, it is worth noting that soft drinks are the number one source of added calories in Americans’ dietsand, drinking your calories has been linked to an increase in appetite. As expected, Prior experienced some drastic changes during his month-long experiment. Even though he stuck to his normal diet and exercise routine, he put on …
