“Desires dictate our priorities, priorities shape our choices, and choices determine our actions.” ― Dallin H. Oaks
Ever tweaked a muscle when working out? When it comes to any kind of exercise correct posture and proper form is essential. Ignoring this could easily lead to injury. When squatting never let your knees move past your toes. You can avoid this mistake by pushing your booty out as if you’re going to sit in the chair. Exhale on the way down, inhale on the way up. Focus on squeezing your behind when you come up. Remember that with proper form, you can help improve your performance and decrease your risk of injuries.
Men’s Fintess advice: Doing air squats with a mini band around your thighs is a good way to train proper technique.
Happy Sunday, dear Reader and thank you for stopping by!
“Dieting almost always leads to some weight loss, but it doesn’t always last. In the end, the hunger pains, deprivation, hard work, and possibly a lot of money were all for nothing… For those looking to lose weight and who are tired of fad diets, try making a few of these changes to your lifestyle. You may not lose as fast, but what you do lose will be gone for good.”

“You’ve gone this long without exercising, so why start now? Because you can get your life back, that’s why! Don’t ever make the excuse that you’re too overweight or too out of shape to exercise. Don’t let your weight keep you from exercising.”

“…While aerobic exercise burns calories during the workout, muscle-building activities such as weight training can create caloric expenditure long after the workout is over. One of the main reasons why is repair. Working with weights breaks down muscle tissue and, naturally, energy (calories) is required to repair the tissue. Also, larger bodies and those with more muscle tissue burn more calories both at rest and during exercise. Five lbs of muscle will look leaner and more contoured on the body than five lbs of fat.” – Liz DiAlto (greatist.com)
My dear Ladies, when in doubt workout and remember that lifting weights won’t make you bulky!
“Get going. Move forward. Aim High. Plan a takeoff. Don’t just sit on the runway and hope someone will come along and push the airplane. It simply won’t happen. Change your attitude and gain some altitude. Believe me, you’ll love it up here.” ― Donald Trump
Don’t be discouraged if you don’t see results right away. Getting fit takes time! Get outdoors, breath some fresh air and work up a sweat.
For me fitness is fun! It’s a wonderful way to do something for yourself, your health and overall well-being. That’s why I’m a firm believer that getting fit should not be painful or boring – it should be fun! So the best way to embrace healthy lifestyle changes is to find something you enjoy doing. If you enjoy physical activity, you will probably do it more often! Having fun is the key to keeping exercise a part of your life. Being a fit person has lots of benefits. You will feel good and comfortable in your own skin, you will be healthier, less stressed, more relaxed and you will sure have more energy and will power.
“Don’t wait until everything is just right. It will never be perfect. There will always be challenges, obstacles and less than perfect conditions. So what. Get started now. With each step you take, you will grow stronger and stronger, more and more skilled, more and more self-confident and more and more successful.” – Mark Victor Hansen
Happy Sunday, dear Reader!
“The relationship between you and your body, between you and all those living cells that depend on you, can become the most beautiful relationship.” – Don Miguel Ruiz
“Something to keep in mind: Not all nutrition decisions carry the same weight results-wise. Focusing on the “big rocks” make the biggest impact: protein, veggies, workouts. Don’t sweat the small stuff. Because your willpower doesn’t care about impact, it drains whether you’re deciding to work out today, or if this salsa has too much sodium (big vs. little impact). Big rocks move the dial and are WORTH your attention. Oatmeal or oat bran? Small rock. 75 oz water/day vs. 100 oz? Small rock. Eat 30 minutes post-workout or wait an hour? Small rock. Make this easy on yourself by being discerning. Focus on high-impact behaviors. Pick your 2-3 Daily Nutritional Commitments and JUST DO THOSE consistently. As for the rest? Do yo best.” – JillFit Physiques
