  • Im pretty sure im doing it right. My heart rate gets up to 180-190. I burn 200 calories in 10 mins. And yes I wear a heart rate monitor. Yes Im doing HIIT Ive been working out for 30 years have been in the fitness industry for 15 years. Im pretty sure I know what Im doing.
  • HIIT training-HIGH INTESITY INVERVAL TRAINING yes I am doing it right. I'm breathless and my class is breathless in the 20 seconds. Do burpees with knee tucks for 20 seconds, 10 second recovery 8 times and tell me its not high intensity. or sprint on the treadmill for 60 seconds at a 8, 9 or 10 speed and tell me that's not…
  • First of all im talking about the average person who wants to lose weight. Im not talking about an athlete like a swimmer, runner, etc. that needs to perfect his/her sport. And yes i can burn way more calories and see faster results with doing hiit training, then when you add weight training all the magic happens. (Short…
  • Asics are my favorite. I went to a sports store and was planning on getting a different pair I tried on a few different kinds. I bought another pair of asics. Best thing to do is go to a sports store and try a few pairs on. They also can see you running or walking and what looks better.
  • Kind of like a burpee but you add weights and do renagade rows and an overhead press https://search.yahoo.com/search?p=man+maker+exercise&fr=iphone&.tsrc=apple&pcarrier=Verizon&pmcc=311&pmnc=480…
  • Its the best way to train in my opinion. Ive been working out since junior high, been lifting since high school, been a certified fitness/spinning instructor for 15 years, now at 44 im in the best shape ive ever been. I owe it all to hiit training and heavy lifting. More specifically tabata style of hiit training protocol.…
  • https://draxe.com/vitamin-b6-benefits/ Nerve damage only extremely high amounts.
  • 3 kids here and 44 years old. Honestly you need to strength train. Dont be afraid to lift heavy. Sign up with a personal trainer to make sure form is ok and they can tell you a plan or take muscle classes at a gym. Pilates and core are great but if you want results you need to step up the workouts. Hiit training (high…
  • Me! Im 44. I have been lifting since I was 18. I am a certified fitness instructor for 15 years. Had 3 babies who are now 8,6 and 2. I was able to bounce back to prepregnacy weight I feel better now than when i was in my 20s.
  • Congratulations!!!! This is wonderful news. Yoga and also a bosu ball are awesome for balance. https://www.bosu.com/shop Live happy and healthy.
  • I did not use an app. I downloaded the free NHS podcasts and listened to the British girl tell me when to walk and when to run. [/quote] Yes! You can get it through podcast She was great. https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/nhs-couch-to-5k/id394384987?mt=2
  • So if you don't like running don't run. I am a firm believer with exercise, if you don't like it, you are not going to do it. Find something you like to do. I do not like running but love sprinting. I am not a fan of running. I don't want the "runners" body either and most runners I know they complain of knee pain, hip…
  • Not a fan of running. I don't want the "runners" body either and I find it so boring. I love sprinting though. HIIT training is what I love. I do this 2 days a week. Friday I do 3 miles, Sundays 4 miles. I do walk, jog and sprint intervals. I go with the music. Fast song, I sprint for 30 sec and recover for 30 secs repeat.…
  • Protein and bcaa. There are protein powders that have bcaa in them. I also use creatine after my workouts for recovery. But protein is number one for muscle recovery. Here is a great article. https://www.muscleforlife.com/the-definitive-guide-to-muscle-recovery-and-muscle-growth/ Make sure you stretch AFTER your workouts…
  • Try kneeling. Its also a great variation. I actually stand because im lifting heavy. When i drop weights i kneel on both knees. Abs are super exgaged back straight. I hardly ever sit for exercises.
  • I do a split routine. Lifting heavy. Full body days not so heavy. Monday: shoulders, biceps and triceps. Tuesday: teach tabata class Wednesday: leg, chest,back and abs Thursday: spin bike Friday: run/sprint work-3 miles/abs Saturday: full body/abs Sunday: run/sprint work-4 miles/abs/yoga and foam rolling
  • First of all there is no need for a hour and half workout. Hour tops!! Think of quality and not quantity. More bang for your buck. Lifting weights a couple of days a week, a spin class or some cardio 2 days a week. Hiit training is great to save time. Only 20 min. One day a yoga class. Maybe do the gym 3 days a week and on…
  • Im 44 have been lifting since 18. 26 years!!! 🤦🏻‍♀️. I have been a certified instructor for 14 years. I have had 3 children. 8,5, and 2 and still lifted and worked out but not as heavy. Now im in the best shape of my life at 44. In my 20s i overtrained would spend 3 hours at the gym, take diet pills etc. i felt like crap,…
  • My 3 children. I want to be in my best shape so I dont age. (Im in denial). Im 44 but feel better than i did in my 20s. I want my children to see what being healthy is about. Eating healthy and exercise is just apart of every day life. They are so used to it now. I have been in the fitness industry for over 13 years. My…
  • I only can do 6pm-8am. So 14 hours and im sleeping most of it.
  • Sometimes. I like to mix it up. Im not one for long drawn out cardio so i love tabata training or high intensity interval training. Days I lift heavy i do not add cardio only on leg day and i will finish my legs off with some spinning or I might just add legs on thursday with chest and back and do an hour of spinning on…
  • There is no need to stretch. Stretching after the workout is important but before there is no need and not recommend because your muscles are cold. Warming up your body is important first. I would say warmup first walking and do some 20-30 sec sprints. Or a min on a min off between walking and jogging. As you train more…
  • They already know. They say “I'm not even going to ask i know you bring your own lunch and you wont eat out” I never felt i would hurt their feelings. I bring my lunch from home and always have. They know i eat healthy and exercise. (17 years working there) For the temptation of when they bring things in. I just think of…
  • In my basement sunday, friday and Saturday. I have a treadmill, weights, weight bench, bands, balls, etc. Sunday and friday I do jogging/sprint work on the treadmill. Saturday full body weights with tabata Monday, wednesday and thursday im in a gym lifting heavy and spin bike Tuesday i teach at a gym. Full body muscle and…
  • In my 20s i was addicted to diet pills, worked out 3 hours a day sometimes 4 and developed an eating disorder. I had to see a therapist and a nutritionist to overcome it. I was in my 30s wanted to get pregnant but kept miscarriying. Saw a therapist to deal with the losses and my eating disorder and need to exercise came…
  • I wash my hair every day. Only once. If i workout in the morning i dont wash it until after my workout. If its an afternoon workout and im home that day i dont wash it until after i workout. When im at work i wash my hair in the morning and my workouts are on my lunch hour. So i only have time time to shower from the neck…
  • Yes! Sundays are my rest day but I do yoga. I think of it as a great finish to the week. I work hard all week sunday yoga is perfect to stretch me all out. I also incorporate some foam rolling.
  • Practice!!! Honestly you just have to keep doing them and instead of picturing pushing your body weight up think about pushing the floor away from you. Try a little every day to build up. I do 100 before bed. Also bench presses, or dumbbell presses, chest flys, cable flys
  • With healthy fats they have a high calorie content like nuts, olive oil, avocado, peanut butter but you dont need alot to make it beneficial. I stick to portions. Portion of nuts are 1/4 cup, olive oil a tablespoon and avocado is about 1/4, peanut butter 2 tablespoons but i always only have 1 tablespoon
  • Do you have a spin bike? From your post it sounds like you are going to a boutique style gym which is expensive. Not sure where you live. Honestly, i love regular gyms that offer classes and are usually $25 a month or so. Like a golds gym etc. They always have deals going on. Yes im biased because I am a certified fitness…
