Weekly Live Long Tip

“Weekly Live Long Tip”

Nutrition – To help control weight gains, “take in more leafy greens”. Try to hone your diet around organic vegetables, lean proteins, fish, and naturally low-fat dairy. Get your carbohydrates from from whole grains like brown rice, quinoa, and nuts. Lastly eat organic or locally grown vegetables and grass fed meats to limit the effect toxins can have on health and matabolism.

Cardio – Power – Strength Interval.

Eliminate Boredom. People tend to start with all intension to completely go full steam with a new fitness approach only to grow bored with the redundant nature of cardiovascular workouts and have difficulty fitting them into their schedule. Interval training is a great way to accomplish more in less time by combining short bursts of intense activity into your regular workout. By keeping the “slow” intervals at an even higher pace, it turns into high-intensity interval training, and may help you burn more calories in less time.

Here is a suggestion;

20 minute circuit with 4 consecutive exercises for one minute per exercise.

Example:
Begin with a bodyweight exercise like a push-up. Next try an intense power cardio exercise like a jack-squat or an Atomic mountain climber. Next a suspension resistance exercise like a TRX squat-row combo. Lastly a 20 yard shuttle run.

Benefits:
The benefits of interval training are only enhanced by boosting the intensity. You burn more calories because your heart rate climbs higher as you perform your circuit, and alternating intensity from all-out blast to a moderate pace helps the body exceed its anerobic threshold. Alternating power and endurance intervals allows your body to adapt faster to new circumstances, which may increase overall performance. Overall high-intensity interval training helps increase the amount of oxygen your body can process, allowing you to breathe harder and get more oxygen to your muscles without feeling out of breath. All of these benefits help you raise your overall level of performance which will only help you achieve your weight loss goals.

Befit Method Tips

Developing a dynamic warm-up program is a smart decision for virtually any workout or sports activity, whether you compete in football, soccer, surfing or any other sport. Not only can a dynamic warm-up program help reduce the risk of injuries to the athletes, but even everyday fitness, and weekend warriors need to use the this type of stretching. If you’re not an athlete you need to wake up muscles and stretch in a dynamic fashion too.

Example: 3-5 minutes of dynamic stretching – active exercises like warrior lunges and bow and arrow pose, try to mimic natural movements that increase elasticity mobility.

Christopher’s Favorite:

Walking Toe Touch
For Glutes and Hamstrings.

While stepping forward go down and touch your toe. Try to keep a straight line from head through the ankle. Do not compensate by twisting the body. This will take the stress off the hamstring AND glutes, which is where we want it.
