Burn Calories By Running

Burn Calories By Running

Running is probably the most common physical activity in which millions of people participate every day. There are many forms of running; jogging for general health and fat loss, sprinting for competition or building explosive power, and competing in marathons, this being one of long term goals for many aspiring runners. Probably the most common motivator for people starting a running routine is to lose weight in the form of body fat percentage. Fat loss however is not the only benefit of running. Partaking in a regular running programme brings many other benefits to the human body such as strengthening

Ketosis for fat loss – Before you start.

Ketosis diet for fat loss

This method of fat loss seems to be getting a lot of attention at the moment although the concept is not new. I feel that many people who are looking for good fat loss results are approaching the method without being correctly prepared. There is no doubt that you can achieve amazing fat loss results in a relatively short period of time and a big draw to this diet seems to be the fact that you can actually eat fat and even make meals like bacon and eggs part of it… But is it really as simple as that? I

General Fitness

General fitness is where it all starts for any trainer or athlete. If I was sitting on the sofa for the last 30 years and suddenly decided that I wanted to become a bodybuilder or compete in an iron-man challenge, I would not start a hardcore bodybuilding routine or start running steeplechases right off the bat. It takes time to get to this point. My general rule for any type of trainer is to build a strong foundation, and then build on that. For example, if I've been sitting around for 30 years and then decide that I wanted to

Setting Fitness Goals

A big factor for me in any project (whether for building muscle, losing fat or general fitness) is goal-setting and crystal clear objectives. I have found that a great tool for this purpose is a time-scale. For the number of years that I have been into fitness, weight-lifting and bodybuilding, I have discovered that, to get my desired results, I have to set for myself a series of short term goals and objectives that when all achieved will culminate to the final accomplishment of a bigger goal. If I was to compete in another bodybuilding show, for example, I would

STICK TO THE PLAN!

One thing that I have been guilty of in the past is not sticking to the plan. I would decide on a training program and train in this way for a week or two, and then read some other idea and migrate to this new way of training… and then, a few weeks later, hear of yet another great way to train to get some fast results and start to follow this… This is not a great way to train. In my opinion, the best thing you can do is to research a sound training plan and stick to this

Start To Get Results!

When starting any training program, the desired result from the training is known as “The Training Effect.” This basically means that you will get the results that you train for, i.e. if you train for fat loss, you will actually lose fat; if you train for muscle mass, you actually gain muscle, etc. One of the hardest phases of training is the first phase. I know this because I have been in this situation many times. When I say first phase, I mean the stage you get to after making the decision to start a training program. At this point,

“I’m Fat and Need Help!”

I have heard this statement a lot. I have seen it on Youtube videos, TV programs, and in magazines. Have you ever said or even thought to yourself, “I’m fat and need help?” If this is you, you should be interested in this article because surgery and crash dieting is not the answer. If I sat down on any week night and turned on the TV, I’ll bet a pound to a penny that I can find an I’m-fat-and-need-help program. Fat Families, Super Size vs Super Skinny, The Biggest Loser, My Big Fat Diary, Secrete Eaters and the list goes

Women And Weight Training

When I worked in a gym, I held many consultations with people to determine what they wanted from a training program and what they wanted to achieve. The common criteria for females were: train 3 times per week and with no weights -- just cardio. In my experience, many women wanting to lose a bit of weight or get fitter and tone up will not want to lift weights. In fact, this is the last thing they want to do. I had to convince these clients that weight-lifting was the way to go. Weight lifting is only for muscle-bound men
