EXCUSES FOR NOT EXERCISING: YOUR TOP 5

DO YOU MAKE THESE 5 FITNESS MISTAKES?

by Jari Love

Stroll through any gym and you’ll notice many mistakes. Mistakes that waste time. Mistakes that put people in danger. And mistakes that are just plain crazy.
Maybe you even make a few of these mistakes yourself.
By avoiding these common blunders, you’ll put yourself on the fast track to results.

Check out the following 5 fitness mistakes and the solutions you need to avoid danger and to get fit fast.

Mistake 1: You use the wrong weight
The goal is to challenge your muscles, not to simply go through the motions. If you are able to complete 15 repetitions easily, then the weight is too light. On the flip side, if you aren’t able to perform an exercise through its full range of motion, and find yourself cheating on form, then the weight is too heavy.
The correct weights will feel challenging by your last few repetitions, but won’t force you to sacrifice form.
Mistake 2: You do the same routine
You may have noticed that most people do the same exercises each time they visit the gym. Maybe you’ve been doing the same exercise routine as long as you can remember – if it isn’t broken then don’t fix it, right?
The truth is that exercise routines have expiration dates, and that is the date that they begin to lose their effectiveness. As a rule of thumb never use the same routine for more than 4 weeks.
Mistake 3: You don’t warm up
Most people consider warm up time to be wasted time – they’d rather jump right into the heart of the routine. What they don’t realize is that a good warm up will allow you to perform at a higher intensity, which means greater results.
The point of a warm up is to increase your muscle temperature. This increases blood flow, muscle contraction and reduces muscle resistance. Your warm up should last 5-10 minutes.
Mistake 4: You use bad form
Gyms are filled with people performing exercises with bad form. The two biggest reasons are that you aren’t concentrating on the exercise, or you’re trying to lift weight that is too heavy. Lifting with improper form almost always results in injury.
Take the time to achieve proper form, by doing so you’ll avoid injury and will reap the full benefit from each exercise.
Mistake 5: You workout alone
People who exercise alone are less challenged, less accountable and typically see fewer results. It makes sense, doesn’t it? Why rush to the gym if no one is there waiting for you? Why push yourself if no one is watching? Exercising alone is a recipe for disaster.

Ways to Measure Your Weight Loss

by Jari Love

Do you step on scale and burst into tears? I have, many times. You’re not alone. So many times when you think you’ve been following your meal plan from your personal trainer and you’re feel like you’re losing weight, then you step on the scale and it doesn’t move. It’s demoralizing when your hard work doesn’t pay off on the scale. I couldn’t handle it anymore, so I threw out my scale. But then, how do you measure your weight loss with no scale. Many doctors will suggest BMI, but there are major flaws with BMI, which I will write more about at another time. But this doctor suggests a few other ways to measure. Let me know what you think…

Believe me, it’s not easy losing weight. And you are not on your own – thousands of people have lost weight only to rebound back, usually with a few extra pounds too.

But it is possible if you understand why you don’t seem to be able to manage your weight long term – to take back the control you need to live a happier, healthier and even a longer life. Before tackling your next diet, answer these questions.

There are a number of different ways to assess your weight:

Measure your BMI

Doctors have BMI charts that tell them the healthy range of weight an individual should be for a given height. Your BMI is your weight, in kgs, divided by the square of your height in metres. A healthy BMI is between 18.5-25kg, 18.5-23 if you are of Asian descent.

Measure your waist circumference

BMI is not the whole story though – it is possible, particularly if you’re a fit muscly man, to have a high BMI and be fit.

And by this I mean high blood pressure, heart disease and diabetes and, if you are of Asian descent, things get even tougher. Asian men, in particular, are at an increased risk of these conditions, so the numbers are smaller – waistlines should be no more than 90cm (36in).

To measure your waist, you need to feel for your hip bone and for the bottom of your ribs. The idea is to breathe out naturally (don’t force your abdomen out, just gently exhale) and measure your circumference midway between these two points.

Waistlines greater than this can be associated with significantly increased risks of high blood pressure.

Percentage body fat

We need some fat to keep us insulated, to protect our organs, and to be used as a source of stored energy. But excess fat is bad for us and increases our risk of heart disease, diabetes and high blood pressure.

How much fat is allowed depends on your gender and your age. Some scales will calculate your percentage body fat for you. For women aged from 20 to 40 anything over 34% is overweight, while overweight men of a similar age will have at least 20-25% body fat. For 41 to 60-year-old women, overweight body fat starts at 36% and in men, from 23%. For the over 60s, it starts at 37% for women and 26% for men.

As a doctor I have to say – yes! On all sorts of levels. As a GP, I think there are practical, emotional and physical reasons for keeping weight in check. If you don’t like your body, you’re more likely to have problems with self-confidence and there is no doubt that excess weight increases the risk of a host of physical health problems.

And if we were to suddenly wake up carrying a couple of extra stone we would recognize very quickly how being overweight or obese leaves us feeling tired and short of breath with aches and pains.

And it will come as no surprise to you that heart disease, Type 2 diabetes and high blood pressure are more common in overweight people, but also some cancers, including breast, colon and ovarian cancer, are more likely to strike. Plus, you are at an increased risk of developing sleep apnoea, and if you need surgery, virtually every post-operative complication is more likely to occur.

Everything You Need To Know About High-Intensity Interval Training (HIIT)

by Jari Love

HIIT is what my Get RIPPED program is based on. Why? Because it works!!! High-Intensity-Interval-Training is a great workout, and is a short workout. So if you’re low on time and want a maximum workout, do HIIT workouts. Below is a great info graphic that you need to save and reuse.

High-Intensity Interval Training has taken the fitness world by storm, and for good reason. Scientific research has shown that HIIT improves both aerobic and anaerobic fitness, impacts muscle tissue at a cellular level, and produces the same anaerobic and aerobic improvement as cardio in less than half the time. While many workout enthusiasts have been quick to adopt this method of exercise, not all of them truly understand what an HIIT program consists of.

First, what exactly is HIIT? Generally, it combines two of the most effective fat-burning methods: maximum effort to achieve muscle fatigue and maximum oxygen use in a quick burst of exercise. A term that commonly gets thrown around when discussing HIIT is VO2 MAX — the largest amount of oxygen our bodies consume during exercise. Getting our bodies as close to VO2 MAX as possible triggers the afterburn effect, meaning the body continues to consume O2 hours after we’re done working out.

HIIT programs are not all the same. They tend to have different lengths of time for both high- and low-intensity training intervals, different ratios of high- to low-intensity levels, and different levels of intensity during lower-intensity intervals. There are three leading HIIT programs: the Tabata Method, the Little Method, and Turbulence Training. Before you start any HIIT program, find out which one is best for you based on your skill level and the amount of time you can spend on exercise.

A New Diet That Copies Fasting Is Good For The Health

by Jari Love

Intermittent fasting is increasing in its popularity. It works for athletes, it works for stay at home moms, it works for the regular Joe. I’ve recommended intermittent fasting to some of my personal training clients. I love it because it’s one day a week where you eat an extremely low calorie day, versus every day. There are different plans for intermittent fasting. This article shows one of the plans. But if you would like to learn about some other options for intermittent fasting, please reach out to me and I can help you. Read on…

Health buffs may want to try a new diet that mimics fasting because according to a new study, this new five-day, once-a-month diet is safe and effective in promoting weight loss and health.

However, in the study that was published in the journal Cell Metabolism, the researchers enrolled participants and they were intermittently fasted for three months. They found out that the results were remarkably promising. The participants showed reduced risk for a wide array of conditions including aging, cancer, diabetes, and cardiovascular disease.

The study was funded by the National Institute of Aging. There were 19 participants who were allowed to join the study. Due to the promising results, the researcher from the University of Southern California is now trying to gain the approval of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration so this regimen could be recommended to patients by their physicians.

According to Valter D. Longo, co-author of the study, “It’s about reprogramming the body so it enters a slower aging mode, but also rejuvenating it. It’s not a typical diet because it isn’t something you need to stay on.”

For the diet, it will last for 25 days of the month. The person can eat normally which is the good side of the diet. However, for one day of the diet, they would eat 1,090 calories containing 10 percent protein, 56 percent fat and 34 percent carbohydrates. However, for two fays through five, they would consume 725 calories containing 9 percent protein, 44 percent fat and 47 percent carbohydrates. Via youthhealthmag.com

Weight Loss: How I Lost Weight – 44lbs (20kg)

by Jari Love

Here’s a dose for Motivation Tuesday! Sarah has lost 44 pounds, and is making huge sacrifices. As a personal trainer and group fitness instructor, I always tell my clients they need to have a support system in their lifestyle change. Without a support system, your weight loss efforts will be incredibly hard. So read Sarah’s story, then be motivated that you can make all the changes you need to for your new health and fitness lifestyle, no matter what the consequences.

Sarah was heavily overweight most of her life. At the age of 55 and with a pre-diabetes diagnosis, Sarah came to me for advice and guidance on how to improve her health and perhaps shed a few pounds. Fast forward six months and Sarah has lost about 44 pounds BUT may be losing her husband in the process.

Working with successful businesswomen to help them gain control of their expanding waistlines as they approach menopause is as very exciting and humble experience.

To see transformations unfold is rewarding and exhilarating. Women share their successes and downfalls in a safe environment allowing them to achieve the body they are looking for.

Sarah’s husband married Sarah curves and all and does not want her to lose any more weight. This is despite Sarah sharing with her husband that she feels great, her pre-diabetes has been abated, and she would love to continue to lose another 40 pounds.

Lack of support from Sarah’s husband may be due to any of the following points.

He may have felt “safe” with her curves, believing that no one would try and steal her away.

With Sarah’s weight loss came increased self-esteem and confidence. He may have felt threatened that Sarah may leave him for another man.

Is Sarah’s husband to be vilified?

Or is it Sarah’s fault for changing the goal posts? He married a woman with curves, and she is no longer the woman that he married.

My advice to Sarah?

Encourage an open dialogue. He may be feeling insecure and if Sarah wants to stay with her husband, she needs to reassure him that though other men now find her attractive, he should not feel threatened but should be proud of any attention she may be garnering.

Include the husband in any extracurricular activities such as walking so the two of the can be gaining the benefits together.

While it is fine to have some curves (as opposed to being ultra skinny), once the curves leans towards being heavily overweight and interfering with your health action needs to be taken.

What would you do if you found yourself losing some excess weight only to find someone close to you is trying to sabotage your efforts? I would love to hear you thoughts and how you handled the situation. You can leave your comments below and I will answer everyone’s questions.

9 fat-burning tips

by Jari Love

Unwanted fat slows you down and makes you feel less confident. Fortunately, if you take the right steps, you can burn off pounds of fat faster than you ever imagined.

How can you get started on this mission? With these nine fat-burning tips…

Fat-Burning Tip #1: Hit the Weights: Losing weight is always a good idea. Unless you’re losing so much you’re also burning off muscle. By adding weight training into your routine, you’ll ensure your muscle is here to stay.

As an added perk, muscle burns more fat faster, and you burn more fat and burn it for longer after an intense weight-lifting session than you would with just cardio.

Fat-Burning Tip #2: Run like Crazy: You’ve got to want it, but if you’re willing to sprint 100 yards 10 times in a row, you’ll melt away about 500 calories from your waistline. That’s a Big Mac or two Snickers bars you just burned off! Do that a few days a week and you’ll have a new body in no time.

Fat-Burning Tip #3: Down the Green: It may seem odd that drinking unsweetened green tea can help you burn fat, but try a glass of it after working out. Not only does it taste good, but it will cause your love handles to fall off your sides faster.

Fat-Burning Tip #4: Work Out Early: Like everyone else in the world, you’ve got a lot to do in the day. Imagine if you could get to the gym or run a few miles before it all gets started? By hitting your routine when you first wake up, before you even eat breakfast, your body will burn fat like there’s no tomorrow!

Fat-Burning Tip #5: Go to Sleep: Just because you’re awake doesn’t mean you’re doing good things for your body. Live in a constant state of sleep deprivation and you won’t be able to work out as hard as you should, and you’ll likely wind up making poor food and drink choices—especially late at night.

Fat-Burning Tip #6: Stop Sitting: Working a desk job is no excuse to stay on your backside all day. Need to talk with a coworker? Leave the email and phone alone and get up and talk with your coworker face to face. Then take a quick walk during lunchtime to rejuvenate yourself and power up for the rest of the day. Making activity part of your lifestyle will go a long way toward shaving off pounds faster!

Fat-Burning Tip #7: Wait for Seconds: Your instinct may tell you to grab a second helping of meat and potatoes as soon as round one is over. But if you want to burn off fat, give yourself 20 minutes after eating your first plate to let your brain catch up to your stomach. Most likely, you’ll feel full after that amount of time and will avoid adding unnecessary calories you’ll just have to burn off later.

Fat-Burning Tip #8: Add Ice: Want to burn more fat faster, without even trying? Then stop drinking room-temperature water. Instead, drop some ice into your water and drink it when it’s nice and cold. It may seem like an old wives’ tale, but drinking cold water has been proven to force your body to burn calories in order to warm the water to body temperature.

Fat-Burning Tip #9: Go for Lean Protein: You want to burn fat, and protein makes it possible. How? By helping to boost your metabolism and build more fat-burning muscle. So grab a chicken breast and a spoon of peanut butter to give your body the upper hand against forcing fat far, far away!

My Get RIPPED programs are designed to help you quickly and efficiently burn fat and get into the best shape of your life.

Food Lie #5: Foods labeled low fat are good for you

by Jari Love

Marketing often tells us to eat low fat foods and whole grain foods in order to be healthy. In some ways this is true because foods high in saturated fats are bad for us as are highly processed foods like white bread. However, there can still be a lot of issues with these so-called “healthy foods” marketed as “low-fat” or “whole-grain”: they can often be heavily processed and include lots of sugar and salt to make up for lack of flavour.

If you look at the nutrition labels of some low fat foods, you will notice there’s a high amount of sugar and salt. For example, low fat yogurt has a higher sugar and salt content than the full fat version because sugar and salt are used to replace the flavor lost through the removal of the fat. As a result, this low fat food now has all the dangers which accompany high sugar foods: addictions and chemical imbalances. Consequently, companies will replace the sugar with aspartame in order to decrease the sugar content on their labels. Major red flags for aspartame which has been linked with some serious health issues. Overall, this “yogurt” is now a heavily processed food that bears no resemblance to the yogurt nature intended.

Similarly, foods marketed as “whole-grain” sound like they should be good for you. However, although the whole-grain may be used in your pasta or bread, or at least marketed as such, there is an over-abundance of preservatives, sugars, and salts also added to your food in order to make that pasta and bread still taste good thus negating the benefits of the whole grains.

Our taste buds have acquired a taste for flavor-filled foods. The food marketing industry is huge and has a lot of influence over the way we perceive food and healthy choices. Don’t believe the lies they tell you. Always ask yourself, is this food from the ground? Can I pronounce all the ingredients? Are there less than 3 ingredients in that food? Is that food made in a factory or a farm? Be smart, make the non-processed choice and your body with thank you.

Want A Bikini Body? Stay Away From These Foods

by Jari Love

I know, I know, anyone can wear a bikini. Technically we all have a bikini body, but do you look and feel good in your bikini? It’s all about confidence when it comes to wearing a bikini. But the fitness industry starts to focus on getting a bikini body usually in April to give you time to slim down to boost your confidence in wearing that cute bikini. So you’ve done the work to look good in that bikini, but then July 4th comes around and you feel and look bloated, what do you do? This article I found was quite helpful in getting that bikini body, and keeping it for the summer.

Whether you’re prepared to show your rockin’ body on a boat or create a ‘buddy system’ with a pal to tell each other to suck in (guilty!), some foods are better to beat bloating.

Who better to ask real questions for real advice from a fitness model and a registered dietitian? Celebrity fitness personality and CEO of Cause Fitness Rachel Elizabeth Murray, and registered dietitian Mary Purdy share their expertise on maintaining a flat tummy in a bikini.

Why am I bloated?!

Mary Purdy, MS, RD: There is never truly one specific cause. It’s going to vary from individual to individual. For many, it is related to some kind of food sensitivity/intolerance/allergy. If someone tends to rush through a meal and not chew, very often that compromises digestive function and can lead to bloating.

Rachel Elizabeth Murray, Fitness Guru: Bloating is usually a digestive issue, but can be caused by many different things such as dehydration, over-hydration, carb-intake and timing, diet, portion size, lifestyle, etc. Which are the evil foods that make me bloat?

Purdy: It is totally individual. For many, it is dairy or wheat; that is what I find most common. 

Murray: To avoid bloating, try to avoid things

HELP! I am bloated and am boating tomorrow! What foods/supplements may help? Purdy: Herbs and spices can help: ginger, mint, cinnamon, fennel seeds. Taking a digestive enzyme or some bitters in water can also help.

Murray: Avoid anything processed! Load up on lean proteins and diuretic veggies (Ex: White fish with lemon and asparagus with a spinach/celery/cucumber salad). Drink 3-4L of fresh, filtered water. You can get dandelion root supplements at natural health food stores to help get rid of excess water weight.

I’m thirsty! What should I sip on? And, yes, I mean alcohol.

Purdy: Not beer! Beer is likely a bigger bloat culprit because it is carbonated and contains wheat which is a trigger for bloating in some people.

Murray: If you’re just trying to have fun with friends and look your best while doing it, I’d say stick with the clear (NOT flavored) liquors like vodka or tequila. If you must have a mixer, go sugar-free. You’re pretty safe with soda water but note that it is carbonated.

What foods should I be stocked up on for a slim stomach?

Purdy: Keep it simple – focus on REAL food: vegetables, fruit, plant based high fiber proteins like beans and lentils, nuts and seeds for health fats, and herbs and spices, and small amounts of whole grains.

Murray: Stick to lean protein, greens over grains, and tiny portions of healthy fats (almonds, olive/coconut oils, avocado). Protein has a higher ‘thermic effect’ (takes more energy to digest) and anything with high nutrient density will give you more ‘bang’ for your calorie ‘buck’ in terms of health, flat tummy, energy, beauty and wellness!
