More energy with smoothies

December 7th, 2014

A friend of mine over at http://slimeratrial.com sent me a product to review last month. I have been trying it along with my smoothie regimen and have noticed a substantial increase in energy. Not only that I have actually lost a bit of weight as well. I have changed nothing in my workout routine either. This is what the bottle looks like when you receive it.

Anyone for smoothies?

September 12th, 2014

I’ll be honest. I have only recently started drinking smoothies. I was never a big fan of milkshakes, and always looked at the texture of a smoothie as the same. This is where my ignorance hurt me. I should have done more research into smoothies and I would have found out all of the ways to make a healthy smoothie that, not only tastes great, but helps you with weight loss! Here are a couple of my favorites to try.

This is one I use to boost my metabolism in the mornings:
6 ounces vanilla nonfat Greek yogurt
10 almonds
1/4 cup broccoli florets (with the stems cut off)
1 cup frozen strawberries
1/4 cup cannelloni beans
3/4 cup iced green tea
1 teaspoon flax-meal
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon

It comes out to about 345 calories and 30 grams of protein, but it provides almost 30% of your daily fiber needs. On top of it, it tastes amazing!

My afternoon smoothie that I like to have is the apple flaxseed cinnamon smoothie. The ingredients are below.
Apple Cinnamon Smoothie
8 ounces coconut water
4 raw almonds
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 cup chopped apple (about 1 medium apple try for a granny smith apple if possible)
1/2 scoop unsweetened protein powder
1 tablespoon flaxseed meal (ground flaxseed)

I also suggest you make this ahead of time. If not, add 3 ice cubes to chill it. Letting this chill in the refrigerator for a while does help with the taste. For a an extra boost I used http://pure.garciniacambogiablog.us recommendation.

If anyone is interested in more smoothie ideas, or would like me to post their smoothie recipes, please feel free to contact me! I look forward to hearing from you!

Prepairing for a workout

September 8th, 2014

Preparing for a workout is much like preparing for a battle. With that I mean you must arrive at the gym, the same way a soldier would arrive on the battle field… with complete focus, and your mind clear of distractions.

To make successful progress you must always push yourself beyond your limits. Follow these pre-workout tips, and you will consistently have amazing workouts where setting new personal records will be a normal thing.

1. Do not train while you’re tired

If you do not have enough energy, you will not successfully surpass your previous goal. Even more-so, lifting heavy weights while being physically or mentally exhausted is dangerous.

2. Shower before you work out

Not only do I shower after I workout at the gym, but I also shower before. Not only does it give me a boost of energy, but I feel amazing and in the zone, ready to workout.

3. Caffeine, Caffeine, Caffeine

Some people may argue that caffeine may be bad for you, however in my experience it is a lifesaver. It not only gives me energy, but also focus. Studies have shown that caffeine can dull pain responses leading to delayed fatigue in high intensity workouts.

4. Have your playlist ready

Having a solid playlist before you workout is a must. There may not be any studies about this, but I can tell you that I usually push myself just a little bit more, and a little harder, without even knowing I’m doing it when I have some good music going through my headphones. There’s just something about certain songs/tracks that make me want to push myself just a tad bit more with the right music.

Utilizing these tips can easily help with your workout routine. If you have any other suggestions that I may add please feel free to drop it in the comment box, or use the Contact Me page and I will get back to you at the earliest I possibly can!

Knowing More About Pre Workout Stretches

Knowing More About Pre Workout Stretches

Stretching can be something that is really helpful for the individuals in improving the flexibility and also can form a major part of the exercise. There are certain individuals who do not stretch before exercise which can make you wonder whether it is really necessary to stretch or not. All the stretches are not the same and so the type of stretches and the time you spend in doing them can make a huge difference in the case of exercise and flexibility. If you feel that the stretching routine that you are currently following cannot improve flexibility then it should be changed as per the need.

Modifications in Traditional Stretching

Traditional stretches that include bending to touch the toes and also stretch out legs on fence are certain kinds of stretching that are followed in the form of pre workout stretches for a longer time. These stretches are called static stretches and are not so recommended as these stretches can increase the chances of injuries. They may not also help in promoting the flexibility. It is suggested to avoid the cold muscles to be stretched as it can result in injuries. Make sure that you are safe when you stretch.

Active Stretching

Active stretching is something that is much favourable compared to the static stretching. Active stretching can be help in improving the flexibility. Active stretching is also called as dynamic stretching and it include the moving various parts of the body and thus increasing the reach and the speed of the muscles gradually. People who do active stretching can gain better flexibility than the ones who do static stretches. People who do active stretching can easily be highly flexible than the ones who do static stretching. They can be flexible in all the various aspects.

Stretches Specific to Exercise

There is no need for the individuals to follow a complicated routine for getting engaged in active stretching. The active stretching can be much beneficial if you are using the same muscle group’s everyday for the stretching. This can increase the flexibility, circulation and also can decrease the chances for injury. Active stretches are all about gradually reaching the goal than just making the stretches as in the case of static stretches. The active stretches are the activities producing lower impact and which can increase blood flow to the muscles. These stretches can easily make an individual all set for a good and intensive exercise or motion.

Muscle Tension and Soreness

Stretching is something that can help the individuals in easily gaining the benefit of flexibility. Another greater benefit is that stretching before an exercise can help in reducing the chances for having muscle soreness. It can also improve the tightness of the muscles by doing either static or active stretching. Tension can be reduced and muscle flexibility can be increased in a substantial manner if the active stretching is done before the work out and static stretching is done after workout. Make sure that you do stretches but safely.
