Beach season is here! Don’t use your vacation as an excuse to not work out…use it as an excuse to work out- with a view!
Everyone in this facility is doing cardio…while no one is on the floor utilizing the weights and machines! While cardio burns more calories than resistance training during your workout, lifting weights torches more fat overall. In a study published in The Journal of Strength and Conditioning Research, people who completed an hour-long strength-training workout burned an average of 100 more calories in the 24 hours afterward than those who skipped the weights. The more muscle owned, the more fat burned. Don’t be a cardio bunny! The best thing you can do is find a program that incorporates a little bit of everything!
Be honest and realistic about your goals…but always remember that you have the same hours in the day as everyone else. We don’t have time to workout- we make time! Break through
that mental block and get it done!
Just a few swaps to recreate your traditional meal of pasta & meatballs. Use turkey or lean grass-fed beef instead of regular ground beef….Oats instead of breadcrumbs…and spaghetti squash instead of pasta! Remember the rule of using the least ingredients with your tomato sauce… and don’t forget to use the best quality/healthy seasonings!
