Fitness Friday

Staying positive and having a positive attitude will breed positive results.  Its really that simple.  Try the 4 foods for a good dose of "happy juice"  Sweet potatoes release serotonin for example. 

TendinITIS vs TendinOSIS-  You may think you have tendinitis, but it could likely be tendinosis, and the treatment for each is very different. 

Quit being so negative-  Engaging in negative "fat talk" seems to lead to being less liked by peers. 

Reverse that Negativity-  Change that negativity and be happy with these 4 foods. 

Quick Weekend Workout!!

For this weekends workout, we're gonna get an intense tabata workout using 6 different exercises.
For those that don't know, this exercise protocol requires intense exercise for 20 seconds, followed by 10 seconds of rest, for a total of 8 rounds.  Try to keep track of your reps and aim to hit that number each round.  Stay consistent. 

1.  Squats (go for speed, but control)
2.  Push-ups/Plank (alternate between the two exercises)
3.  Reverse Lunges (one leg at a time)
4.  Rows (TRX works perfectly for this)
5.  Spiderman Climbs (foot is going towards the outside of the hand)
6.  KB Swings (if no KB, then go for "fake jumps" aka body extensions)

Give yourself 90-120 second rest btw exercises for a killer workout.
