Do You Even Lift? Build Muscle – Be Awesome!

My favorite story about “big muscles” is this one: My nephew, about 4 at the time, was sitting on his grandma’s lap, snuggling. It was sweet and cozy, and then he sat up, poked his grandma’s boob, and said, “Wow, Grandma – you have really big muscles!” Actually, I think he said “muskles.” OMG THE CUTENESS. We’ve been laughing about that for years. By now, you’ve added resistance training to your exercise program, right? Right?! Because in addition to getting poked in the boob and complimented by innocent toddlers, the benefits of resistance training are significant. increased functional ability, motor performance, and cardiorespiratory fitness increased bone density (bugger off, osteoporosis!) increased strength in connective tissues which provide joint support and stability improved glucose tolerance (bugger off, diabetes!), improved resting blood pressure, and improved quality of life decreased risk of injury decreased body fat mass improved overall bad-assness <— the most important one! Because muscle tissue is more metabolically active than fat, the more muscle mass you have, the more calories you burn. That’s good news! And because weight-bearing exercise builds strong bones, lifting weights helps you ward off osteopenia and osteoporosis. And it’s difficult to “bulk up” so do not be afraid to add resistance training to your programming. Unless you’re training for a specific sport or level of performance, there is no one right way to lift weights. What you choose should be appropriate, and desirable, for you and your goals and your current fitness level. You can use dumbbells and barbells, or you can do body weight exercises. Most people do a combination of the two. But really, the best workout is...

Wanna Have a Hardcore Quickie (Workout)? RAWR.

OMG. We’ve been traveling for almost two weeks, and despite my best efforts to stay the path of health and wellness, it’s very, very difficult. You’re off your sleeping schedule, you don’t have access to all your regular go-to foods, your hosts prepare lovely dishes that you can’t refuse, and it’s harder to fit in workouts. I DID fit in workouts, and we DID eat well, but still…. I am ready and eager to get back to normal. And thanks to a bit (but not too much) indulgence, I am in need of a butt whoopin’ and I’ll get it with this week’s Hardcore HiiT Home Workout! We begin this one with a 1/2 burpee plank walk, then ramp it up with a squat jump kick combo, a bad-ass inverted push-up burpee – say WHAAAAAAT –  and another lunge to really HiiT the legs, and then we challenge our abs with a weighted core move! Take THAT, roadtrip indulgence! Ready, Sparky? Ready, Captain. For this week’s workout, all you’ll need are two light Sandbells, your Gymboss Interval Timer, and a mat! And guess where you can buy all of those things? HERE! (<—- not so subtle sales pitch) Learn the 5 Exercises and Make-It-Easier Modifications with this Workout Preview!
