Establishing priorities — and maintaining awareness of those priorities — is an important part of developing any exercise, nutrition, or fitness related program. The “awareness” part comes in handy when deciding between pushing through those last few miles during a run, or sticking to a tough diet even when everything in your body is screaming to “EAT THE CHEESECAKE!” The tough part is knowing when to listen to that voice, and when to ignore it.
Ever have one of those days when you’re sore, achy and tired and have no idea why? If you’re not sick, what could it be? For those who train regularly, the answer may be simple. You need to rest. We get so caught up in our workout programs that it’s easy to forget our bodies need a break every once in awhile. You might also think that time off from exercise will halt your progress—but really, both your body and your mind will benefit from a much-needed pause.
No one wants to look scrawny in a T-shirt. Next to biceps, the chest muscles are most noticeable at first glance. So how do you build better pecs? It’s easier than you think. Just add these three exercises to your workout program and within four to six weeks, you should notice not only improved size but also increased strength.
It’s getting hot out there. You know what that means: beach and pool party invitaitons incoming! Finally, it’s time to show off everything you accomplished during the off season. Not quite ready for that first unveiling of the summer? Get with this plan, and you will be in no time.
Ever struggled through a workout, feeling weak, depleted and ready to give up after only a few minutes? If you’ve been there, done that, you may have made the one fitness mistake that’s easiest to avoid.
You’ve finally gotten into a groove—going to the gym every day, eating right, feeling good about your progress. Then it happens. You get sick. And as you cope with a steadily worsening cough, runny nose and sore throat, you start to battle with yourself: I can still exercise! I’m not that sick. I should stick to my routine. Right?
