Tips To Fit Exercise into Your Back to School Schedule

It’s back to school time, and time to say goodbye to the lazy days of summer. The days get shorter, the nights get longer, and it’s easy to run out of time. Exercise isn’t generally the priority when there are books to hit, money to earn, and families to take care of. Yet, there’s no reason to put your health and fitness on the back burner simply because life just got busier. Use the following tips, tactics, and ideas to fit exercise into your back to school schedule. Use Your Commute – How far do you need to travel to get to work or school? Could you ride your bike or run instead of driving? It’s an excellent way to get in a good cardio workout. Of course, you’ll get another workout on the way home as well. Shift Your Sleep Schedule – Sleep is important to be sure. It helps you lose weight, improves brain function, and helps your immune system stay strong. Exercise helps with those things as well. Try getting up an hour earlier so you can squeeze your exercise in at the beginning of the day. You can hit the sack a half hour early as well. Your body will adapt to the new sleep schedule in a matter of days and you’ll start each day knowing you’ve already done something wonderful for yourself. Lunchtime Exercise – Do you have a break between classes? Do you get an hour for lunch? Split that hour into two segments. Run, walk or jog for thirty minutes and then eat your lunch when you’re done. You’ll have more energy for the second half of the day. Plan Ahead – There are many things that you do during the day that can be eliminated or changed. For example, the ten minutes you spend making your lunch or your family’s lunch during the day can actually be prepared the night before. Make a list of the daily activities you perform each day. How can you make small changes to your routine to free up a bit of time each day? Join a Club or Hire a Trainer – It’s amazing what we make time for when we’re motivated. Small group fitness classes are a great way to make new friends and get the exercise results you want.  You get focused attention from trainers. When you have a fitness routine, one that you’re committed to, it’s much easier to make it part of your daily routine. Back to school is not the time to let your fitness slide. In fact, it’s the perfect time to make lifestyle changes and to create good habits. Create time to make fitness a priority.   Are you seeking for some fitness help, talk to experts on T3 Fitness, click...

Muscle Foods – What to Eat to Build Muscle and Burn Fat

Muscle Foods – What to Eat to Build Muscle and Burn Fat

To burn fat and build muscle your body needs a variety of nutrients. When you’re able to consume the right foods on a regular basis, your body will respond quite quickly. Combine the muscle building and fat burning foods with an exercise program and you’ll be well on your way to the body you’ve always wanted. Fish – Fish (cold water fish in particular) have an abundance of Omega-3 Fatty Acids. These fatty acids have been shown to improve your immune function, reduce inflammation, and balance your blood sugar levels. Additionally, fish is packed with protein which helps your muscles recover from exercise. Kale – Kale is the new super food. You can find many different varieties in your supermarket including baby kale. It’s high in the nutrients your body needs to stay strong and healthy. It’s low in fat and calories. Kale is tasty cooked or raw. If kale isn’t to your liking, consider collards, spinach or other dark leafy greens. Eggs – Eggs are high in protein and are considered a near perfect food. They have a bad reputation for being high in cholesterol but new studies have shown that you can eat eggs without impacting the level of cholesterol in your blood. And if you eat eggs with leafy greens or other fruits or vegetables then the cholesterol will not be absorbed into your bloodstream. Eggs also contain vitamins A, D, and E. Berries – Berries are high in fiber and antioxidants. They’ll keep you feeling full and help prevent free radicals from damaging your body’s cells. Strawberries, blueberries, and raspberries are freshest during the summer months, but frozen berries are available year round and are just as nutritious. Nuts and Seeds – Nuts and seeds have protein, healthy fats, and fiber. They make an excellent snack and taste great on yogurt or a salad. One of the myths about losing weight and getting in shape is that you have to eat a low fat diet. This isn’t true and a low fat diet generally causes people to gain weight because so many low fat foods are exceedingly high in sugar. Sugar makes people fat. If you can eat whole foods and skip the sugar laden processed foods, you’re on the right track. Whole Foods Not Processed The truth is that as long as you’re eating whole foods, foods that are natural and minimally processed, you’re giving your body the nutrients it needs. Eat vegetables and more vegetables. Eat meat, some fruit, nuts and seeds and no sugar. Pay attention to your body and how it reacts to certain foods. Many people find that dairy and grains cause bloating, cravings, and weight gain. Processed foods are high in sugar and chemicals. They’re high calorie, low nutrient foods that don’t do you or your body any favors. If you want to build muscle and burn fat then fuel your body with a wide variety of vegetables and protein.   Get to know more about the T3 Fitness video programs and work outs, visit...

Love to Ski? 3 Tips to Get in Shape Before the First Snow Falls

Love to Ski? 3 Tips to Get in Shape Before the First Snow Falls

It may be hard to believe but ski season is just around the corner. If you love to ski then you already know that skiing is as challenging as it is fun. It takes great strength and cardio fitness to be able to spend the day on the slopes. And the better shape you’re in, the safer skiing can be. Right now, before the first flakes fall, is the perfect time to get in skiing shape. Work on the Glutes and Large Leg Muscle Groups Skiing is in large part a lower body exercise. The stronger your legs and glutes, the longer you’ll be able to stay on the slopes. There are a few exercises you can do at home to strengthen these muscles. Lunges – Standing with your feet under your hips, step forward with one leg. Bend the front leg until the knee of your back leg is just about touching the ground. The knee of your front leg should be over your foot but not past it. Switch legs and repeat. You can add weight to increase strength and resistance. Squats – Standing with your feet slightly wider than hip width apart, bend at the knees. Keep your back straight and your weight in your heels. Push your rear end back like you’re sitting in a chair and lower your body until your hips are even with or slightly below your knees. Stand up while keeping your weight in your heels and repeat. You can add weight to this exercise too. Box jumps and step up exercises are other exercises that can strengthen your leg muscles for skiing. Your Core Matters Your core muscles include your abdominals and your back muscles. Pilates is perhaps the single best program for strengthening your core muscles. If you haven’t tried Pilates, consider signing up for a course. You’ll be surprised how much your skiing improves when you have good core strength. Cardio Concerns In addition to exercising in the mountains where the air is thinner and your body has to work harder to get the oxygen it needs, skiing is a cardio exercise. The stronger your heart and lungs are, the more pleasant your skiing experience. Consider adding rowing, jump roping, jogging, or cycling. In fact, a spin class is a great way to improve your cardio system. Finally, consider adding a balance ball, wobble board, or other balance type device to your workout routine. You’ll teach your body to respond to the bumps and curves of a ski run. The better your fitness, the better your ski season and now is the time to get started.   Check out some latest posts by T3 Fitness...
