FITNESS LIES YOU HAVE BEEN TOLD



Hey Gang,
Nothing bugs me more than when good people are misled by fitness myths. These myths sabotage results and keep people miles from their goal weight.

So I’ve got to warn you about the bogus rumors going around about strength training. I don’t want to see you held captive by a faulty belief.
Don’t fall for one of these 4 myths and miss out on tremendous potential results.

Strength Training Myth #1: Muscle Can Turn Into Fat

Why would anyone want to build muscle if they think it could morph into fat over time? Don’t worry; this myth is seriously bogus.

Muscle tissue is muscle tissue. Fat tissue is fat tissue. One can't become the other.

Strength Training Myth #2: Strength Training Makes Women Bulk Up

Sure, strength training increases muscle tissuee on your body, but too many women interpret this to mean they'll look like a roided 1970s body builder builder...

The truth is that the female body simply doesn’t naturally contain large enough levels of testosterone to put on bulk muscle without a very focused and dedicated effort. Rest assured, ladies, strength training gets you lean and to lose weight.

Strength Training Myth #3: Exercise and You Can Eat Anything

This makes me cringe, as I’ve seen so many people, CLIENTS AS WELL thanks to Facebook, throw away their hard-earned fitness results by eating too much of the wrong stuff. Even if you strength train daily at an intense rate, your total calories still matter. To top it off, most people overestimate how many calories they burn as well as underestimate how many calories they eat. Talk about a fattening combo.

For best results, maintain a calorie-controlled diet filled with fresh, wholesome ingredients in addition to a regular, challenging strength training routine.

Strength Training Myth #4: High Reps And Light Weights For Toning

This myth, made popular in the 90’s, says that very high repetitions of very light weights would result in a toned physique. Sorry, not true. These high repetitions will increase your muscular endurance but will not add strength or tone.

In order to truly challenge your muscles, gain strength, and have less fat and more lean muscle... heavier weights with lower reps are a requirement.
Typically your repetition range will be around 8-12. Now don't get this confused for thinking "OK, I did the magic number 10...laa laa laa laa." Nooooo. Those 10 repetitions were very-very challenging. Ask yourself if you were to be paid $1,000,000, would you be able to muster one or two more?

WHY DO WE CALL IT WEIGHTLOSS



The definition of loss is missing something that is cherished.  How does that pertain to weight loss?  If we lose something we feel sad and it takes a while to get over that feeling. 
     Everyone I know who wants to get in shape looks for the next great diet.  Let’s look at this word for a moment.  If you drop the T in Diet what do you have? Die, isn’t this what most people want to do when they are trying to get rid of those extra pounds.  Why is something good we are trying to do have such a bad connotation? 
This brings me back to my point about weight loss.  When you lose  something you look long and hard to try and find it again.
This means after struggling to lose say 50lbs over 6 months you wake up one day and say oh my god where did those 50lbs go. I must find them  because a loss is not good.
Where could it have gone?  I know that 50lbs is in the pasta, cookies, white flour, cupcakes and candy and my old sedentary lifestyle.  I want it all back to make me feel whole again.
     This is why I think we should call the process of weight reduction Weight Release, doesn’t this make sense?  When we get rid of extra pounds we release that in the form of energy into the universe.  We don’t want it back.  We will not wake up in a month or two and say where did my flab go?  We released it never to return.  This can be accomplished with a flexible eating plan and workout to help tone and shape your body.
 Weight release is easy as 1,2,3.  You can release on average 5lbs a week guaranteed by following my own weight release eating plan and participating in a workout program that will set you metabolism on fire.

IS YOUR BODY READY FOR SUMMER?

ARE YOUR READY TO PUT ON THAT BATHING SUIT AND STRUT YOUR STUFF.

     I SEE THE GYMS ARE FULL WITH PEOPLE GETTING READY FOR THE SUMMER BATHING SUIT SEASON.
   
EVERYONE WANTS TO TRY THE NEXT BEST WORKOUT TO LOOK THEIR BEST ON THE BEACH.

MOST PEOPLE READ THE MAGAZINES AND ARTICLES ON THE INTERNET THAT TELL THEM 10 MINUTE HIIT WORKOUT WILL GIVE YOU THE BODY THAT WILL TURN HEADS OR FOLLOW THIS ROUTINE AND YOU WILL GET A KICK ASS BODY.

UNFORTUNATELY EXERCISE IS ONLY 20% OF THE SOLUTION.

WHAT GOES IN THE PIE WHOLE LEADS TO 80% OF YOUR SUCCESS OR FAILURE.

DIET IS A 4 LETTER WORD IN MY BOOK.  IF YOU LOOK AT THE FIRST 3 LETTERS THIS IS WHAT YOU WANT TO DO IF YOU FOLLOW MOST OF THEM.

PACKAGED AND DELIVER MEALS LIKE NUTRISYSTEM AND JENNY CRAIG DO NOT TEACH YOU HOW TO EAT.  THEIR WHOLE OBJECTIVE IS TO GET YOU HOOKED ON THEIR SERVICE AND DEPEND ON THEM FOREVER TO KEEP THE WEIGHT OFF.

LOSING WEIGHT IS NOT ROCKET SCIENCE THE ONLY WAY TO HAVE SUCCESS IS TO KEEP YOUR BLOOD SUGAR STABLE.  HOW YOU ASK DO YOU DO THIS.

IT IS MUCH EASIER THAN YOU THINK.

IF YOU LOOK AT YOU PLATE AS A PIE AND FOLLOW THESE EASY STEPS YOU WILL NEVER BE OVER WEIGHT OR HUNGRY AGAIN

YOUR PLATE SHOULD BE SET UP THIS WAY:
1/4 PROTEIN
1/4 STARCHY VEGETABLES
1/2 FIBROUS VEGETABLES

ALWAYS MAKE SURE THAT YOU NEVER DEPRIVE YOURSELF.

PICK ONE DAY DURING THE WEEK AND EAT WHAT EVER YOU WANT.  NORMAL PORTIONS DONT BE A GLUTTEN.  THIS WILL KEEP YOU ON TRACK

THAT,S IT IN A NUTSHELL .  LIKE I SAID NOT ROCKET SCIENCE

ARE PRE PACKAGED DIET MEALS THE ANSWER TO WEIGHT REDUCTION?

    We have all seen the ads for the meals that are sent to you so there is nothing to do but put them in the microwave and heat.
     These meals are the right combination of protein fats and carbs that will start you on the process of weight reduction.
    You just open your freezer put them in the microwave and you have a well balance meal.
Is this a great way to reduce the poundage that you have accumulated over the years.
     This may be good for a jumpstart to point you in the right direction.  What do you do when you have lost the weight. Can you maintain it.
    This is not possible.  You werent taught how to make the right combination of foods to keep the weight off.  As soon as you stop buying these meals the weight slowly rejoins you hips and thighs and your body welcomes the weight with open arms.
   The companies who make these diet foods hope that when you see the weight rejoining your body you will rush out and start buying from them again.  They dont care about you they just what you seperate you from your cash.

The process to weight reduction is to learn the right combination of foods that will stoke your metabolic furnace and cause you to burn fat instead of storing it. 

    This process is alot easrier to learn and stick to then you think.  All it takes is learning how to combine the right rations of slow carbs fast carbs and protein in every meal to keep those fat burning logs on the fire.
    Its like the old saying goes.   Give the man a fish and he will eat for the day.  Teach a man to fish and he will eat for a lifetime.
     The flexible food plan is not a diet it is a way of life you can stick to.
You will be taught how to eat and what to eat at each meal to keep the fires burning.  The biggest compliant I get is that I can eat all that food. 
  One important fact is that you must never deprive yourself.  If you want something eat it.
It is possible to reduce 5 lbs a week by just eating your meals and snakes in the right combination.
 Here is an example of a days worth of fat burning meals.

BREAKFAST:
2 WAFFLES
2 TURKEY SAUSAGES
SMALL BOWL OF FRUIT

SNACK:
   6OZ GREEK YOUGURT
1 DOZEN ALMONDS

LUNCH:
1/4 HAMBURGER
SALAD ADDING SUNFLOWER SEEDS,PUMKINSEEDS AND WALNUTS

DINNER;
FLANK STEAK
BAKED POTATO
MIXED VEGETABLES

This is easy to follow.   Just make sure you ad a cheat day one day a week.
This along with a metabolic conditioning workout 3 times a week will keep you on the right track quickly and safely.

CAN YOU BUILD MUSCLE AND AND TONE YOUR BODY AT 45 AS YOU COULD AT 25

Most people think that after 40 it is almost impossible to build muscle and tone your body.
   We have all been brainwashed commercials telling us that we are tired and dragging because of low T(testosterone).  The media says after 40 you lose you ability to produce T or growth hormone and you must take pills to do this.  They say this is the only way to produce a body full of energy and vitality.

All I have to say is BULLSHIT.  No matter what age you are you can produce growth hormone and built and tone your body.

Studies have been done with both sexes in their 90's that proved you can build strength and stamina
 just by doing resistance exercise on a regular basis.

All it takes is about 20-45 minutes a day 3 times a week no matter what your age to get into the best shape of your life.

People tell me all the time going to the gym does not produce results.

The reason for this is they do the same old thing over and over again and never increase resistance or push themselves to to their personal edge.

You can go to a personl trainer and hope they listen to you and that they know what there doing.
     You can join a bootcamp and be with like minded people who are trying to achive the same  goals
you are. 

    Princeton bootcamps will get you in the best shape of your live.  We will always push you to your personal edge but never over.

You can get the results you want.  All it takes is the right mindset and an experienced professional to guide you along the way.
