When you’ve been in a field as long as I have, you see some things go around full circle. I’ve seen this with sports nutrition and with stretching. It kind of makes you wonder what we’ll be teaching next year, doesn’t it? With research becoming more and more precise, I think it’s fair to say that information is more available now than it was 30 years ago; results can be tested and tweaked on computers in ways we never dreamed of before; and data can be compiled and analyzed from multiple sources, very quickly. This gives us the opportunity to change our minds with some authority. As long as politics stays out of the equation, this new and rapid data analysis is a marvelous thing.
Have you ever wondered what effects diet and rest have on endurance exercise? Try running a half marathon after eating a hamburger, French fries and a 32 oz soda. You would instantly know why Fatigue Nutrition is so important. Or try running a marathon after only sleeping two or three hours a night for a week.
Fatigue Nutrition is based on common sense and real life research. The common sense is eating a balanced diet consisting of non processed foods, fruits and vegetables. The research comes from 10 years of running and studying the great minds of endurance exercise and sports nutrition.
And finally, possibly another mistake is the one of using heavy weights for your abs, in combination with your workouts. If you use weights to strengthen and increase muscle mass in your arms, chest and other muscle groups, they say it can also help you gain toned muscle in your abs. If you decide to try it, just be careful and don’t overdo it. Don’t choose weights you are not ready for….remember, safety always comes first.
This particular exercise info is just as important as the other two workout tips mentioned. Without consistency, your fitness results will inevitably suffer.
Another results producing fitness secret is to write down your goals. Along with your goals, make sure you incorporate a strong reason why you wish to accomplish them.
If you’ve decided that you need to start a fitness for life program to get toned and make your body more attractive you’re probably confused about which type of program to choose. I realize you are constantly flooded with material that claims to show you the best way to get rock-hard abs, build strength and endurance, get lean body muscle, etc….it’s all very confusing! I hope I helped you cut to the chase…
