If you are ready to begin a new fitness program, it’s best to be prepared, in order to prevent injury. The following tips can help you get ready to transform your lifestyle into one that includes physical fitness. A steady start, with care taken to not overdo it, will be key to long term success.
When working out, do not waste your time doing too many crunches. If you find yourself doing more than 3 sets of 15 crunches a workout session, you are wasting your time. Studies have found that doing more than that is completely useless. You are simply wasting valuable energy that could be directed to working out a different part of your body.
An easy way to work out your abs while doing any other activity is to hold in or flex your ab muscles. Doing this move on its own can, sometimes, be equivalent to doing a sit up. Doing it while working out or even just walking, helps strengthen the ab muscles and improves posture, since it is strengthening your core muscles.
Sit ups and crunches are not all you need for 6 pack abs. Although strengthening abdominal muscles has great benefits, the process alone will not get rid of your belly fat. In order to get a coveted six-pack, it is necessary to lower overall body fat, eat a balanced diet and do lots of weight and cardiovascular workouts.
If you want to improve your fitness, don’t forget your core. These are the muscles which support your trunk. Good core fitness will improve balance, stability,and appearance. One simple move you can do is the bridge: simply lie on your back and raise your hips until they line up with your knees and shoulders.
Becoming physically fit will improve every aspect of your overall health. Incorporating fitness into your life should be part of a concerted plan to minimize setbacks, such as injuries and make exercise part of your every day routine. Once you get used to the changes, the results will be readily apparent.
MRM Metabolic Whey is a delicious, creamy, 100-percent whey protein formula. Loaded with BCAA's and Glutamine, this unique protein blend Meta-Pro is bioengineered to increase muscle size, strength and promote lean body mass.
Meta-Pro delivers an optimal source of whey protein, produced by a state-of-the-art, low temperature, ultra-filtration process. This unique processing yields a high biological value protein, rich in branched chain amino acids and glutamine for advanced recovery. This provides increased nitrogen retention without causing indigestion, stomach cramps or pains. In addition, Meta-Pro is fortified with cross flow, ultra-filtered whey protein isolate and nitrozyme. The addition of nitrozyme helps break down long and short chain peptides into smaller, more readily absorbable amino acids for maximum absorption and digestion.
The problem with the high protein diet used by many athletes and dieters is that the body is unable to naturally digest and absorb high amounts of protein at one time. Nitrozyme helps the body release more amino acids from ingested protein than the action of digestible enzymes alone. When an athlete takes Metabolic Whey, the body can absorb more free amino acids directly into the muscle tissue, which helps to increase muscle size, strength and lean body mass. This protein formula is strawberry banana flavored.
