WHY BODYWEIGHT MOVEMENTS ARE SO EFFECTIVE?



If you go to the gym and lift traditional weights they tend to isolate muscles with the intention of bulking the muscle up. This may create "pretty" muscles, but the functional strength and lean muscle you get from bodyweight exercises is more powerful and healthy.


These exercises work your entire body and strengthen it from the core. When you workout you engage all the organs, the glands and the muscles.

Here are 5 reasons to make sure you include bodyweight workouts into your training

1. Very effective at developing a firm, lean, sexy body

2. They are the most convenient form of exercises and can be performed anywhere

3. In life, we use our body as one full body segment, like sitting down, reaching for something on a shelf, turning around, chasing your kids, or any of the hundreds of other movements

4. Your body should be trained mimicking these movements to be best cope with the demands of daily living and sport

5. Machines at gyms can make you stronger, but they are too isolating


Good Luck with today’s work out and GET IT DONE!

HOW TO HAVE A HEALTHY SUMMER BBQ SEASON

SUMMER BBQ LUV

With the hot weather in full effect what better time than to learn some healthy BBQ techniques to stay on track and maintain your healthy weight this summer?

Grilling is easy, healthy and oh so delicious! However, be rest assured that is not limited to hot dogs, half pound burgers, juicy and fatty steak, beer canned chicken or sticky sweet and sour ribs. Although the aforementioned sound mouth-wateringly delicious, overconsumption of these higher fat BBQ staples may wreck havoc on your health goals and your waist line.

Did you know you can grill vegetables, fish, breads, pizza and even fruit? Yes, that’s right and with your BBQ heated and ready for some flavour, here are some great ideas for you to try in a healthier way:

1. Try replacing hot dogs for homemade kofta (ground meat skewers) and if you’d like, place them in a multigrain bun. Try my Ground Lamb Kofta recipe:


Recipe:
3.5 oz. extra lean ground lamb (ask your butcher for extra lean)
1/2 tsp each, ground cumin, ginger, garlic
A pinch of cinnamon
1 tbsp fresh mint, chopped
¼ tsp sumac (optional)
2 tbsp finely chopped onion

Instructions:


Mix together and form 2 meatballs. Place each meatball on a long wooden skewer and spread along the length of the skewer to make a sausage-shape. Grill until cooked and serve over a tossed green salad or your vegetables of choice.

2. Instead of store bought pre-packaged burgers with 25 + grams of fat each, try making homemade beef burgers with extra lean ground beef. Keep it moist by adding egg whites and extra herbs and spices. Try combining extra lean ground beef and lamb (1/4 lamb, 3/4 beef), fresh rosemary, thyme and garlic to make a mouth-watering burger and better yet, top it off with some low fat goat cheese and grilled onions.

3. If you love condiments, stick to natural ketchup, assorted mustards, relish, lettuce, tomatoes and pickles. Avoid mayonnaises, high-fat cheeses, and rich creamy sauces. If you want to spread some spice try using a fat-free yogurt or sour cream and add some fresh garlic, herbs, spices and hot peppers, your taste buds will thank you for it!

4. For extra flavour, try marinating or adding a dry rub to your chicken breasts, shrimp or lean beef. There are many different flavours and seasonings to try from: lemon-garlic shrimp, jerk chicken, soy-lime ginger beef, etc…

5. Choose lean cuts of meat. For beef, go with beef tenderloin, striploin or sirloin and don’t forget to remove all visible fat. For chicken, go with the breast (feel free to BBQ with the skin on but then take it off and discard before consumption).

6. Grill your veggies! Try bell peppers (red, green yellow and orange), eggplant, zucchini, yellow squash, red onions, asparagus and cherry tomatoes to name a few. You can even grill small potatoes and sweet potatoes but before you do, it would be best to pre-cook them slightly. Before hitting the grill, be sure to toss the lightly in some extra-virgin olive oil or use a basting brush so they don’t stock to the grill.

7. For dessert, try grilling pineapple, mango, peach halves, nectarines and even bananas and drizzle your fruit with some fresh orange or lime juice and fresh chopped mint.

8. Quench your thirst with some low-sodium soda water as your base and add some of the following and get creative: add a slash of pineapple juice, add fresh berries and lemon juice, cucumber and even melon. You won’t believe how refreshing these drinks can be! If you fancy wine, think moderation and make a wine spritzer using half wine, half soda water and ice!

9. Don’t forget to serve these BBQ delicacies with some fresh, crisp summer side salads. Try tossing assorted leafy greens (mesclun, Boston Bibb, spinach, arugula, Romaine, etc) and add d toss in a citrus vinaigrette. Make a creamy coleslaw using fat free plain yogurt and your favourite herbs. Try a fresh tomato and basil salad with aged balsamic vinegar, or change things up a little and make a sweet potato salad with fresh chives, rice wine vinegar and add a hint of honey for sweetness!

With a little creativity and a BBQ heated and ready to be used, you can enjoy your summer, outdoors with your friends and keep your healthy eating on track with the above mentioned guideline, tips and tricks! Bon App├ętit and happy Barbeque season.

Recipe of the Month by Spartacus Workout Graduate Julie Wolf

Steak a la Chez Wolf  by Julie Wolf

I love to share great recipes that I find or people send to me. When I found this recipe from Julie Wolf, who actually completed my  4 Week Spartacus Challenge and lost inches throughout her body, I was delighted to try it.

Let me tell you it was delicious and healthy too. By the way Julie won a contest with this recipe so check out the recipe and  try it this week.

Thanks Julie


Steak a la Chez Wolf by Julie

Well…the title is silly but it’s something a friend coined…

Ingredients:
I usually buy eye of round roast beef, it tends to be lean enough. Any other lean cut of steak will suffice as well.

Directions:
1 half pint of strawberries
half a bag of spinach
1/4 cup of balsamic vinegar
3 cloves garlic, chopped
3 shallots, sliced thinly

Get a frying pan medium hot and add a tablespoon of coconut oil. Add the garlic, shallots and strawberries. Push these around for a minute, and then add the balsamic vinegar.

Cook until the strawberries start to disintegrate.
Add spinach and cook until wilted. Move this mixture to the sides of the pan until the middle is clear.

Drop the steak on and cook to your liking. I like it rare, so I leave it there about a minute per side.

Serves 2.


TELL ME HOW YOU LIKE YOUR STEAK COOKED- LEAVE COMMENTS



In 4 Short Weeks Julie Wolf lost 2 inches on her hips and
gained more overall body strength

FUNKY STELLAR SATURDAY WORKOUT




WORKOUT - CHEST, PLYOMETRICS AND INTERVAL TRAINING

I went to a commercial gym this morning (yes I said it, the gym...I HATE going to commercial gyms - they are brutal)

It was raining and I did want to workout at home, but decided to make the trek to my local gym and if I was going there then I was gonna make it a STELLAR WORKOUT.

So check out the workout below, it was a mixture of traditional weight training plyometrics, bodyweight exercises and interval cardio training using super and giant sets...

TOOK THIS YESTERDAY

I have to tell you that ever since I have cleaned up my nutrition and completely changed my workouts from long boring bodybuilding type trianing to shorter high intensity interval training using my bodyweight, kettlebells, plyometrics, core exercises, functional movements, weights, TRX and other cool devices, my body has made a complete change.

I used to be 205lbs with what most of the beach volleyball players called my BUDDAH stomach - never really had abs, I was just big. 

My message to you is, unless you want to be a bodybuilder, stop wasting your time with workouts that are probably NOT working for you and switch to more functional, high intensity workouts. 

WORK SMARTER AND HARDER FOR RESULTS!

Check out the pic and try this workout if you DARE!!!!

3 Hidden Culprits Of Weight Gain

Check out this great article by my friend Vic Magary. As Fitness Professionals, It seems like Vic and I are always conveying the same messages, so I wanted to pass this along. If all or any of the three culprits are currently in your diet and nutrition, you will actually experience weight loss.

3 HIDDEN CULPRITS OF WEIGHT GAIN
by Vic Magary - http://www.gymjunkies.com

I’ve heard it from plenty of clients, “Vic, I’ve stopped eating bread, avoid pasta like the plague, and haven’t had even a nibble of cheese is over a month and I’m still not losing weight.” When I hear this, I know there is something lurking in their dietary habits that are sabotaging their weight loss efforts – without them even realizing it. There are items they are not even recording in their food journals because they feel it somehow doesn’t count. Well the proof is in the waistline. If you are taking care of the “big items” like bread, pasta, and dairy – but still aren’t losing weight – be on the lookout for these three hidden culprits of weight gain.


1. Salad dressings. Why clients think they don’t have to list the dressing they put on salads in their food journal amazes me. All of that creamy crap is ruining the healthy deliciousness of that spinach salad with asparagus, cucumber, grape tomatoes, and red peppers (my personal favorite salad combo). So steer clear of Ranch, Thousand Island, Caesar, and any other salad dressing where dairy is obviously a main ingredient. To be sure you stay on the proper path to weight loss, I actually recommend that you avoid ALL prepackaged salad dressings due to the unpronounceable ingredients that are nearly inescapable with store bought dressings. The only salad dressing that gets my seal of approval? Homemade balsamic vinaigrette: 3 parts extra virgin olive oil, 1 part balsamic vinegar, spices of your choice, shake the shit out of it and enjoy. Delicious!

2. Alcohol. So you stopped drinking beer, you’ve stepped way back on the wine, and you’re now cutting your Jack Daniel’s with water. All of those adjustments are fine and good, but if you are not reaching your weight loss goals the booze has to go. Having just two drinks has been shown to drop the body’s fat burning ability by as much as 73%. When alcohol is consumed the body converts it to acetate. The acetate then becomes your body’s preferred source of fuel – which means your body is NOT using body fat for fuel. See De Novo Lipogenesis, Lipid Kinetics, and Whole-Body Lipid Balances in Humans After Acute Alcohol Consumption, Siler, Neese, & Hellerstein, American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, 1999; 70: 928-936.

But the main reason that I recommend you steer clear of alcohol is because it lowers inhibitions. You don’t have to be staggering drunk and end up in the drive thru seeing the effects alcohol can have on your will power. That one glass of wine can easily turn into a second glass with a cheese tray. It’s too much potential for a slippery slope in the wrong direction so my recommendation is to abstain from alcohol during fat loss efforts.

3. Diet Soda. I know, I know. . . there are no calories in diet soda so how can it hinder weight loss? It’s because that artificial sweetener that makes you fall in love with Diet Coke confuses the hell out of your body. The body’s natural regulatory systems that control hunger and weight get all out of whack when it has to process the sugary taste without the expected caloric intake. See Artificially Sweetened Beverages: Cause for Concern, Lugwig, Journal of the American Medical Association, 2009; 302: 2477-2478. Science and facts aside – my experience with clients has always been that weight loss efforts are hindered when diet soda remains a part of the diet.

As they say, the devil is in the details. Often seemingly harmless diversions from the plan can add up to crush your fat loss efforts.

What are some things you’ve eliminated from your diet that you weren’t expecting to have an impact, that have helped you reach your weight loss goals? Let me know in the comments below.

The Heat is On Event - See Funk Roberts Live!

I am sharing my never before heard secrets LIVE, on how women can achieve a Strong and Sexy Beach Body. If you want hear these secrets then join me and other professional women at "THE HEAT IS ON" event presented by Orangefish - Read the flyer below and register at http://orangefish.eventbrite.com/


3 AWESOME UPPER AND LOWER BODY DUMBBELL WORKOUTS (VIDEO)

3 AWESOME UPPER AND LOWER BODY DUMBBELL WORKOUTS (VIDEO)

I love sharing information about my quest to building the ultimate home gym.  I hate working out at gyms...air conditioning, horrible music, people sitting on machines staring into space, instead of working hard and then there is the socializing. Isn't  that what bars and clubs are for?

Don't even get me started on the Personal Trainers. I truly cannot remember the last time I stepped into a gym.

Thanks to the IronMaster Dumbbell Quick-Lock Set my home gym is starting to become more complete.  I received the IronMaster last month and haven't looked back since. My home workouts have been taken to a new level.

 It would have been impossible for me to furnish my house with a full dumbbell set that range from 15 lbs - 100lbs, so the easy lock, changeable weight system is perfect.  Easy to assemble (because I have 2 thumbs when it comes to putting things together) and easy for me to use. 

If you are looking to build a home gym, then I would suggest you purchase the Ironmaster Dumbbell Quick Lock System

Enough of the shameless endorsing and plugging, let's get to the workouts.  I actually had a person send me an email asking if I could put together specific workouts with the Ironmaster, which was cool.  I figured these workouts can be done with any kind of dumbbells and anywhere

Okay 3 workouts - 2 upper body and 1 lower body that you can do once per week, or include in your workout regime.
