Fitness Friday

I think every Fitness Friday is going to include a nutrition article, since nutrition is just about everything when it comes to changing body composition.  You can't out train a bad diet.

The best ab exercises? Think Big Lifts-  Bracing with your core on big lifts like squats and deadlifts do more for your core muscles than a million crunches.  Core was meant to stabilize and thats exactly what it'll do during your big lifts.

Eat Smart, Get your Vitamins- Make sure you are getting all your vitamins and minerals.  Any deficiency in any of them could hinder muscle gains or fat loss. 

120 tips on strength training for women- Some stereotypes, some of it is funny, some of it is very true.

Compare any food-  Use this handy website to compare any two foods for nutritional content.  I had fun comparing all sorts of things.  Take a look whenever you are deciding on food choices.

Weekend Workout (make sure you rock a dynamic warmup before any workout)

Hindu Pushup.  If you can't do this, perform a regular pushup
Squat Thrust-  Old school gym class squat thrusts
Jump Squats
Spiderman Climbs

The goal of this circuit is to do 5-10 reps of each exercise and do 5 total sets in as little time as possible.   Good Luck!!

Feel free to post times and reps for this challenge.

Hoppy Easter!!!
