Getting the Most From Your Workout

When it comes to muscle and fitness advice, few sources actually hit the mark as it pertains to a reasonable, competent way to tailor your post workout meal and consistent eating plan. Average Joe hard-gainers everywhere are constantly blocked from reaching their genetic potential through these faulty advice channels, when instead they could be receiving constant, appreciable gains in both body composition and muscle growth.

The key to understanding how to manage your post workout meal to maximize growth, while also giving full weight to the importance of your daily eating habits, is to realize that your workout days are in many ways different from your recovery days, and should be treated as such. This realization first comes with knowledge of the physiological processes that occur when you fully exhaust a muscle or muscle group, and how this changes your biological processes for that day, and for many days to come.

The Workout Day

While a standard fat loss workout, that is designed to keep the heart rate low and constant, can prove effective at burning fat while offering significant cardiovascular benefit, the only way to cause new muscular growth is to engage in high intensity exercise. This tie between muscle and fitness is where the distinction is made between exercise and muscle building exercise. Any exercise that does not fully exhaust the entirety of a muscle group will not result in the positive hormonal cascades that lead to increased insulin sensitivity, health benefits, and the growth of new muscle.

With high intensity exercise comes a need for an increase in muscle building protein to provide for the regeneration of damaged muscle fibers and growth. An excellent example of a muscle building protein that is successful at both being present in the bloodstream during a workout, and being available to assist in recovery during the post workout window, is a supplement that contains branched chain amino acids.

Your post workout meal plan should also focus on the ingesting of simple carbohydrates to account for the deficit created when muscle are exhausted of their sugar stores during high intensity lifts. Simple carbohydrates such as dextrose are quickly absorbed by the body, resulting in a rapid intake of carbohydrates by spent muscles.

The Recovery Day

Your off days differ from those in which you challenge your muscles, in that your need for carbohydrates, especially simple carbohydrates, is greatly diminished. Instead, you should focus on increasing your fat intake, especially your saturated fat intake, to make up for the created deficit in carbohydrate. This is, of course, while keeping protein constant and keeping total calories even, if not diminished.

It’s important to note, that even if you choose to engage in a fat loss workout during an off day, consuming an increased amount of fat will not block the ability to burn fat stores. In fact, eating enough fat bolsters fat burning during exercise if sufficient carbohydrate is present in the diet.

How to Stay Motivated and Get the Most From Your Exercise Program

If you’re like most people, exercise is not on the top of your list of favorite ways to kill time. Sure, we try to convince ourselves that we actually find hours on the treadmill or elliptical machine to be peaceful and relaxing. But the truth is, we’d rather be sitting on the couch with a half-gallon of chocolate ice cream. But the stark reality is that the number of people who are either overweight or obese is growing worldwide. In fact, according to the World Health Organization’s (WHO) latest projections, by 2015 approximately 2.5 billion adults will be overweight (body mass index, or BMI, of 25 or higher) and 700 million will be classified as obese (BMI of 30 or higher).

If you are in this group, or on your way to being in this group, there are some serious health issues you need to be aware of, including increased risk of heart disease, diabetes and certain cancers. So what can you do? Two things: diet and (gulp) exercise. Yes, there’s no getting around it. Whether you want to improve your overall health or just look better in those tight jeans, you’ve got to exercise. We’ve all been there, we start out with the best of intentions, gung-ho to get fit. We hit the gym, pound the pavement and crank up the cardio. But somewhere along the line we hit that darn wall. These are some tips to help you stay motivated and burst through that wall like it wasn’t even there.

1. Have an Explicit Goal “I want to lose some weight,” is an ambiguous and an indefinable statement. You could lose two pounds or twenty pounds and not know if you’ve reached your goal. Be specific with your goals. Determine your target body weight and identify a number of pounds you need to lose to get there. Other goals could include a target BMI or waist size. The point is to be specific and realistic. As you get closer to reaching your target, you will remain motivated to keep going. You may even reach your goal and keep going because you have now made exercise a part of your daily routine.

2. Develop a Strategy Most of us can’t rely on willpower alone. To lose weight and keep it off, you need a solid strategy consisting of both diet and exercise. They are two sides of the same coin and the two necessary ingredients for successful weight loss. You need to incorporate these into your daily routine. With food, you need to make a plan (maybe weekly or monthly) for what you are going to eat each day. With exercise, same thing. Think through your schedule and slot in exercise “appointments” and stick to them. If you have a doctor’s appointment scheduled and something else comes up, you’ll most likely say, “sorry, I can’t make it because I have a doctor’s appointment.” You need to treat your exercise appointments the same way.

3. Baby Steps Big goals may get us excited at first. But our excitement usually turns to frustration soon after we set out on our way and that big lofty goal looks a million miles away. It’s important to not bite off more than you can chew. Getting back to the first tip above, make your goals explicit and attainable. Then, as you achieve your goals, you continue to adjust them, enabling you to consistently meet milestones and create a sense of accomplishment.

4. Monitor Your Progress Keep a daily, weekly or monthly log of your activity. When you first start out, you will be able to walk or jog so far, or lift so much weight, or do x number of sit-ups. If you write it down each day, you’ll be amazed at how much more you can do after only a few weeks of your regimen. This is an incredible way to keep yourself motivated by being able to see how far you have come in a short period. Just be cognizant of the fact that over time, your progress will be less than it was when you started but it is still a great sense of achievement to look back and see what great strides you have made since you started.

5. Construct a Realistic Timeline You’ve identified your goals. Now it’s time to set a timeline. How far do you want to go in a month? Six months? A year? Having a timeline creates that extra amount of positive pressure you need to keep on track. It’s all too easy to procrastinate but if you have a target date, you can’t procrastinate forever and reach your goal. It may even be a good idea to pick a date that coincides with an important event, such as a wedding or reunion.

6. Reward Yourself When you reach a milestone you deserve a reward. You’ve worked hard to get there and you should enjoy the moment. So attach rewards to your goals and you will be that much more motivated to get there.

Kelly Richards is NOT a fitness or diet guru. He is just a regular guy who likes to eat food that’s probably not the best for a healthy lifestyle. As a result, like many of us, he has fought the battle of the bulge on a regular basis. This article documents effective strategies based on real-life experience.

Florida Hospital Tampa Achieves National Accreditation from the Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery Accreditation and Quality Improvement Program


Tampa, FL (PRWEB) April 21, 2015

Patients seeking surgical treatment for severe obesity and its related conditions have a high-quality choice for receiving treatment at a nationally accredited program that meets the highest standards for patient safety and quality of care in the greater Tampa area.

Florida Hospital Tampa, today announced its bariatric surgical center has been accredited as a Comprehensive Center under the Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery Accreditation and Quality Improvement Program (MBSAQIP), a joint program of the American College of Surgeons (ACS) and the American Society for Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery (ASMBS).

The MBSAQIP Standards, outlined in the Resources for Optimal Care of the Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery Patient 2014 ensure that bariatric surgical patients receive a multidisciplinary program, not just a surgical procedure, which improves patient outcomes and long-term success. The accredited center offers preoperative and postoperative care designed specifically for its severely obese patients.

“Our entire team at Florida Hospital Tampa is honored to receive the recognition for the work we’ve been doing and for the thousands of people whose quality of life we have helped improve,” stated John Dietrick, MD, Medical Director for the Surgical Weight Loss Program at Florida Hospital Tampa. “When combined with a comprehensive treatment plan that includes exercise and dietary changes, bariatric surgery not only serves as the most effective tool to provide long-term weight loss, but often improves many obesity-related conditions, such as type 2 diabetes, sleep apnea, heart disease, high blood pressure and more.”

Florida Hospital Tampa’s commitment to quality care begins with appropriately trained staff and the surgeons who participate in meetings throughout the year to review its outcomes. They seek continuous improvement to enhance the structure, process and outcomes of the center.

To earn the MBSAQIP designation, Florida Hospital Tampa met essential criteria for staffing, training and facility infrastructure and protocols for care, ensuring its ability to support patients with severe obesity. The center also participates in a national data registry that yields semiannual reports on the quality of its processes and outcomes, identifying opportunities for continuous quality improvement. The standards are specified in the MBSAQIP Resources for Optimal Care of the Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery Patient 2014, published by the ACS and ASMBS.

“The MBSAQIP designation is a huge step for the bariatric surgery program at Florida Hospital Tampa,” said Brian Adams, President and CEO of Florida Hospital Tampa. “It recognizes the fact that we provide some of the most advanced care and highest quality surgery for our bariatric patients in the Tampa Bay area.”

After submitting an application, centers seeking MBSAQIP Accreditation undergo an extensive site visit by an experienced bariatric surgeon, who reviews the center’s structure, process, and clinical outcomes data. Centers are awarded a specific designation depending on how many patients it serves annually, the type of procedures it provides, and whether it provides care for patients under age 18.

In the United States, around 15.5 million people suffer from severe obesity, according to the National Institutes of Health, and the numbers continue to increase. Obesity increases the risks of morbidity and mortality because of the diseases and conditions that are commonly associated with it, such as type II diabetes, hypertension, and cardiovascular disease, among other health risks. Metabolic and bariatric surgical procedures have proven to be effective in the reduction of comorbid conditions related to severe obesity.* Working with ASMBS, the ACS expanded this quality program for bariatric surgery centers so that it can assist bariatric patients in identifying those centers that provide optimal surgical care.

How Exercise Protects From Dementia, New Study Shows


Rock Hill, South Carolina (PRWEB) April 21, 2015

A new study from Sweden’s National Institute for Health and Welfare finds that individuals who are at risk of dementia have a much better chance of staving off the condition by combining mental and physical exercise. In some tests, those participants who followed such a regimen saw startling results when compared to a control group.

Recently published in The Lancet, the Finnish Geriatric Intervention Study to Prevent Cognitive Impairment and Disability recruited 1260 participants, all between the ages of 60 and 77. Each was deemed to be at risk for dementia at the top of the study.

One half of the participants were regularly given “comprehensive intervention” related to some of the most serious health risk factors for that age group, including dementia itself, heart concerns or a high body-mass index. The remaining participants made up the control group and were only given standard health advice over the course of the two year study.

The overall processing speed of those who received the comprehensive guidance was found to be a shocking 150% higher than the control group. Meanwhile the brain’s executive functioning, where thoughts and memories are organized, was 83% higher in the first group.

In all, the control group was found to be 25% lower from the invention group when all cognitive testing was averaged out.

Dr. Sandeep Grewal, author of the book “Dementia Express: Lose Your Memory in 100 Ways”, has been encouraging patients to combine mental and physical exercise for years. An internal medicine specialist practicing in both Carolinas, Grewal has long been fascinated by how the mind is used, and sometimes under-used.

“There is so much we don’t understand yet about our brains,” Dr. Grewal says, “but one thing this study definitively demonstrates is how crucial good physical health is to supporting solid mental health. It is another muscle, after all.”

Grewal’s book “Dementia Express” was specifically written out as a logic problem, challenging readers on each page to factually assess what they’re reading in order to deduce the actual messages hidden within. The book’s subtitle, “Lose Your Mind is 100 Ways” is itself seemingly counterintuitive.

“We see it in our practices every day as doctors,” Dr. Grewal continues. “how closely intertwined the mind and body truly are. If you take good care of one, it’s much easier to take care of the other.”

Dr. Grewal went on to praise the Swedish professors who led the research, saying “They’ve shown us a powerful tool in helping seniors stay mentally sharp while also exercising the body. Their results were striking, and the message is a very positive one.”

“I wrote Dementia Express to encourage seniors to give their minds a work-out as well,” he continues, “while also of course strongly encouraging physical exercise. Earlier studies have also demonstrated a strong link between the two, but nothing with the stark results shown here.”

“This should drive people to action and may even change how we doctors treat those at risk,” he explains. “The message is clear: if you know someone at risk of dementia, you need to keep them moving and active, from the neck up and the neck down.”

The Swedish study is scheduled to continue for several years to gauge any decline or improvement seen in cognitive abilities among the intervention group.

Dr. Grewal’s book, “Dementia Express” is available on Amazon.

4 Weight-Loss Strategies that Guarantee Results from Fitness Boot Camp


Chino Hills, Calif. (PRWEB) March 25, 2015

Fit Body Boot Camp guarantees its clients will see significant results. This type of claim can be rare in the fitness industry, with so many facilities merely offering access to gym equipment rather than healthy living accountability.

Here are four weight-loss secrets Fit Body Boot Camp uses to help its clients lose weight and experience life-changing outcomes. Implementing these tips can help anyone achieve their desired results.

1. Find the right program, gym, or fitness center.

Where and how people exercise will significantly affect their ability to lose weight. There is no one-size-fits-all fitness option and certain programs don’t offer the appropriate services. Many require the kind of personal attention and accountability that simply cannot be found within an ordinary gym. Individuals should look for fitness programs that provide a solution to their own specific needs.

2. No one can out-train a bad diet.

Deciding to exercise, regardless of any other changes, is always a great decision. But significant weight-loss results only come from changes in both diet and exercise. Find a program that incorporates a nutritional plan or look for programs that offer customized nutritional advice. Professional help can make all the difference when adopting a healthy diet.

3. There’s nothing wrong with getting help.

The most dramatic transformations are almost always the direct result of professional help and individualized attention. Personal trainers know exactly how to guide and direct clients to the results they want using the exercises they need. Trainers also help clients avoid injury by correcting improper technique and avoiding unsafe exercises.

4. Find someone to provide accountability.

Encouragement and accountability provided by friends or professionals will also keep people working hard and losing weight. Traditional gym memberships or solo attempts at full body transformations are easily thwarted without an outside force keeping people moving toward results. Group programs are a great option for those who enjoy to exercise with friends and professional trainers are great motivators during periods of discouragement or difficulty.

Fit Body Boot Camp employs each of these weight-loss techniques in order to ensure and guarantee client results. Try implementing these strategies or simply visit the nearest Fit Body Boot Camp to find them conveniently located all in one place.

About Fit Body Boot Camp:

Fit Body Boot Camp is the world’s fastest growing and most popular indoor fitness boot camp franchise. Home of the Unstoppable Fitness Formula™, Fit Body Boot Camp workouts are designed to shed unwanted body fat in the shortest time possible and under the supervision of qualified personal trainers.
