Lifting

Benefits of Training:  Did you know that when you limit your training session to strictly cardio, you only burn calories during the session?  When you add in resistance training, you are not only burning calories during the workout, but you also burn calories up to 48 hours after the workout.  Lean muscle mass consumes more energy than fat.  Therefore, the more lean muscle you have, the more calories you burn throughout the day.

For your Nutrition:  Your nutrition will make or break your fitness goals.  Nutrition is extremely important to reaching your goals.  Eating 5 to 6 small meals daily is better than consuming just 2 to 3 large meals.  Your nutrition is key to maintaining, gaining or losing weight.  It’s called the Law of Thermodynamics.  If you are trying to lose weight you need to burn more calories than you are putting in and vice versa for gaining weight.  Having a balanced diet will drastically reduce the time spent in the gym.  One can train with the intensity of a body builder but without nutrition you will never  reach your goals.  If you have any questions about nutrition please feel free to ask.  Remember that Fitness is a 3 legged table –  1. Nutrition    2. Weight Training    3. Cardio.

For Healthy Drinks:  I suggest water or gatorade.  Drinking 2 to 3 liters of water per day will help you actually lose body fat.  Water helps with proper digestion, lubricating the muscles and joints, and helps give your skin a healthy color.  If you are working outside in the heat for an hour or more, drinking a gatorade will help balance your electrolytes.
