Introducing Matt Espeut’s Fit For Life: Are You Fit or Foolish?
Saturday, April 27, 2013
Do you log hours and hours of cardio per week?
Are you eating nonfat processed foods?
Are you sore for days after exercising?
Do you train to total exhaustion?
Are you starving yourself?
Wasting money on gimmicks?
This is most people’s interpretation of fitness. If you are doing these things and not making any gains or feeling worse, sore or relying on painkillers and anti-inflammatories to make it through the day, it’s time to change.
The answer is as simple as eating quality whole foods and doing the proper amount of exercise. Fact: You cannot out exercise a bad diet. Eating processed foods whether they are low fat or not will actually make you fatter because most of these foods are higher on the glycemic index causing a rapid fluctuation in blood sugar, thus making your body store fat, rather than burn fat.
Strength training is the key to any fitness regime. When you build muscle you burn more calories – period.
First, decide on your personal goals - Lose weight? Improve at golf? Play with your children/grandchidren? Look better at the beach? Second, Give yourself enough time to achieve goals. Third, seek advice from a qualified professional.
Fitness: It's a noun! The condition of being physically fit and healthy. The quality of being suitable to fulfill a particular task or role.
