Happy Saturday everyone! - I want to share with you one of my favorite snacks to have throughout the day. I’m sure everyone has had a protein bar before, my favorite are these from @rxbar - What I love about these is that they only have 4 ingredients opposed to the 20+ that are in normal protein bars. Might as well just grab a candy bar. - Next time you’re looking for a protein bar take the time to look into the ingredients and have your mind blown!
BE YOUR OWN MOTIVATION. ••• Woke up today feeling like a strong lean bean and it’s been a minute since that has happened. 🙌🏽 While physical changes are the positive side effects of giving two shits about what I’m fueling my body with and how I’m staying active, I can’t help but celebrate them. Just a few months ago I was back up to my heaviest weight, so I’m winning in my book 💃🏽
✖️TIME 4 TIME✖️ • Compare the calorie expenditure of an hours worth of cardio & an hours resistance training and you’ll find that cardio will put expend resistance training whilst you are doing it! • So why do I choose resistance training as my primary Fat Loss tool for clients when it is calorie expenditure that helps promote that all important calorie deficit? Well this is why..... 👉🏽 EPOC. Excess Post-exercise Oxygen Consumption. It essence you will continue to burn calories at rest following a resistance training session. 👉🏽 Muscle building. To build muscle you HAVE to resistance train, you won’t build muscle running! In fact you may run the risk of losing muscle tissue by pounding the streets! The more muscle you can build the more energy (calories) your body requires to support this tissue. 👉🏽 Strengthen bones, tendons & joints. 👉🏽 It’s fun & challenging! • Having said all this there is a place for cardio in EVERYONE’S training regime whether you are looking to burn body fat or put on muscle tissue. Burn more calories = Eat more food, if that’s not an incentive to do cardio then I don’t know what is!
