Is running the best way to get in shape?

We all know this great feeling after a run when we are getting a nice rush of Endorphins (known as happy hormone), which makes us feel that we are ready to take over the world. 

 

Since gyms...

Are you setting yourself up for success?

In life, we claim that we want a lot of different things, without most of the time planning properly in order to get them...

THE MACROS SERIES

What should I eat?? What the term macros refer to? This is what we will be covering in this serie.

CARBS

Often seen as the devil of nutrition you can find it on different forms: Simple carbohydrate (sugars) and polysaccharides (they contain many molecules of connected sugars) and can be digestible or indigestible

PROTEINS

Unlike carbs, proteins are seen as the go to in Nutrition for fitness. Often overconsumed by non-bodybuilders, what are they really?

They are complex compounds made of different connected amino acids.

ESSENTIAL FATS

3rd type of Macros, the Essential Fats are playing an important role in our food and in our body. however, their consumption doesn’t have to exceed 35% of the total daily calories. If your daily calories intake is 2,500 calories, you shouldn’t get more than 750 calories from fat (about 83 g of fat).

How many reps should you be doing per set and how it can impact your goals?

If you think of your body as a car, and your training as the tyres you put on your wheels, depending on whether you're going to drive in the snow or under the sun, you're not going to use the same tyres if you want your driving to be optimal. 
The same thing goes for training, as if you want to gain muscle or have more definition, you're not going to train the same way.

WHY YOU SHOULD FORGET THE SCALE AND WORK ON A HEALTHY BODY COMPOSITION?

A healthy body composition simply means having a body fat percentage relatively low (between 8 and 19% for a man of 20 to 40 years old and between 21 to 31% for a woman same age). 

 

Hum ok, but how is that healthy?

tWell if you think of your body as a castle where your organs are stunning furniture, the fat is the dust which accumulates around your organs over the time and your muscles are hardworking fairies in charge of making sure that your castle is always at the top:

WHY DOING SIT-UPS AND CARDIO WON'T MAKE YOU LOSE WEIGHT? 

In order to lose weight, build muscle, tone your body and improve your body composition, Strength training should be your main focus. Indeed, the more muscle mass you build, the more fat you burn and the toner you look. 

 

Weight loss is a vast subject for which every trainer has a different approach. ​
