How Much Does Hydration Really Affect Muscle Strength?

Hydration and Muscle Strength, Does It Really Matter?

lean_muscle_tissue

Whether you are strength training, looking to lose weight, or going for athletic performance your hydration levels will dictate how well you do. Your muscles are comprised of 70-75% water. Just a 3% dehydration of a muscle can lead to a 10% decrease in muscle strength and performance. Imagine if your water levels in your muscle were only 60-65%? Your performance could drop by 30-40%! So next time you’re about to workout ask yourself did you have enough water? Check back next time for the recommended amount!

Beware! Some Fitness Facts Could Be Myths!

Top 5 Exercise Myths Everyone Should Know About!

 

 Training Aspects Resolves fitness myths

Exercise Myth #1 -You burn more fat exercising at a lower intensity

This is a tricky one because science technically says this is true. Lower intensity or “steady state” exercise does primarily use fat stores for energy, whereas high intensity exercise primarily uses carbohydrate stores for energy. Then how can this be a myth?

Personal Trainer Tip to Burn Body Fat

 In order to burn a pound of fat you need to burn 3,500 calories. High intensity exercise is still the king of burning calories. Not only will a ½ hour, high intensity workout burn more calories than an hour, low intensity workout, it will also boost your calorie burn for up to 24 hours after you are finished the workout!

Exercise Myth #2 – Crunches will reduce your waistline

 Again this myth comes back to overall calorie burn. Crunches only target one small muscle group. It is a low intensity exercise and will not burn many calories. In order to reduce your waistline and burn off that belly fat you need to engage in high intensity exercises.

Personal Trainer High Intensity Exercise Tip

Jump squats, squat to press, burpees, kettlebell swings and kettlebell snatches. These moves still utilize core stabilization and greatly increase your overall calorie burn to help slim your waistline!

Exercise Myth #3 – Exercising 7 days a week is the only way to get results  

This one couldn’t be further from the truth. You may see some results in the first week or two, but then you’ll burn out quickly. Rest is just as important as exercise. If you’re not allowing your body the proper rest, it won’t be able to recover and grow stronger for the next workout. You will always feel fatigued and beaten down, which is the exact opposite of how exercise should make you feel.

Remember: there is no perfect number of workouts, it varies for each individual.

Personal Trainer Weekly Exercise Tip

 Beginners can start with moderate exercise at least 2-3 times a week. Intermediate exercisers can workout 3-4 times a week. Advanced athletes can workout up to 6 times weekly, but they will still need at least one rest day.

Exercise Myth #4 – If your goal is to lose weight, stay away from lifting weights

This is a terrible myth that must be corrected once and for all. Resistance training is an essential part of any successful fitness plan. Resistance training will help you lose weight, gain strength, and improve overall fitness.

Personal Trainer Weight Training Tip 

Resistance training not only increases lean muscle mass, it also helps promote fat burning. The more lean muscle you have the more calories and fat you naturally burn doing nothing! Add exercise to all that lean muscle and you have a fantastic fat burning machine!

Exercise Myth #5 – You will continuously see the same results for months on end

We all wish this one was true but unfortunately the body doesn’t work that way. The principle of diminishing returns does not allow for this to occur. Your body only has so much fat it is willing to lose, it needs a certain amount of fat to function correctly and keep you healthy. This is why it becomes much more difficult to lose weight as your body fat decreases.

Personal Trainer Tip to Overcome Stagnant Results

Change up your workouts. Sometimes the reason for your lack of results is a stagnant exercise routine. If you have never tried kettlebell training or battle rope training,  then give it try. These exercises are high intensity and could kick your results into the next gear!

Don’t fall for all the myths, stories and lies out there, do your own research and find the facts!

4 Great Tips to Achieve Fitness Success in 2014!

 

How to Stay Motivated to Succeed This Year!

It’s a new year! You know what that means? Time to set goals and be successful this year! How can you make this year different? How can you actually succeed and accomplish everything you set out to do? Setting goals is a great start, but sticking to them is the difficult part. Here are a few ways to make 2014 a Success!

Personal Trainer Success Tip #1

Change Your Exercise – Instead of thinking about how much of a chore starting an exercise program will be, focus on all the positive benefits you will see. Not only will you see health benefits, but have a sense of accomplishment, improved mood, improved productivity, and an increase in positive energy everyday! This thought process can be applied to anything in your daily life. Always focus on the positives of each situation and everything will become easier!

Personal Trainer Success Tip #2

Set “reinforced” Goals – So what is a “reinforced” goal? Well your typical fitness goals are usually “lose weight” or “get toned.” Too vague and you can’t “measure” how you are doing. Instead this year set a goal to run a 5k, half marathon or even a full marathon!  Sign up for a sports league of your choice. Now you have a specific goal and reason to train consistently. By setting a goal for the future you will inadvertently lose weight, or get toned. Reinforce your goal, if it only adds an extra drop of motivation, it is worth it.

Personal Trainer Success Tip #3

Make Your Exercise Program Fun and Different This Year – Many people associate getting fit with endless hours of running on a treadmill. Change it up this year, add bodyweight exercises, kettlebells, battle ropes, TRX, or a Power Plate. (Link to articles or videos) A more fun and effective way to train! Did you ever notice, you run for an hour on a treadmill and you’re still in the same place! Try a new training technique, your motivation and results will change for the better.

Personal Trainer Success Tip #4

Invest in a Personal Trainer – There is no better motivational tool than a great personal trainer. They will keep you accountable each and everyday. Making sure you are hitting each workout with top notch intensity and ensure your nutrition is on point. A personal trainer will introduce new and innovative workouts each week. Making sure your form is as needed for not only the best results but also to keep you from getting hurt. Personal Training is an investment in yourself, if you can invest in a 60 inch flat screen, you can invest in your health just the same. Your health is worth it!

Try implementing a few of these successful strategies this year. You will notice an improvement in your health, mobility and of course looks!

Cherry Hill Personal Trainer Discusses How to Achieve Your New Year’s Resolution Fitness Goals!

 

Personal Trainers Quick Tip:

How to Finally Achieve Your New Year’s Resolution Fitness Goals!

HealthyNewYearResolution

New Year’s Resolutions are right around the corner and many people have fitness goals on their mind. How do you set realistic goals and stay motivated, so you don’t end up like 90% of the crowd by quitting your fitness journey before it even starts?

Make Your Goal a Lifestyle Change

What this means is don’t make this a quick fix, like lose 20-30 pounds this month. You’re setting yourself up for failure. Instead just focus on making a change to a healthy lifestyle. This includes increasing your weekly exercise and healthy eating habits. This will be much easier to handle in the beginning setting you up for the long haul.  This way you don’t join the crowd and quit after just two weeks.

Get a Workout Partner or Personal Trainer

Nothing will keep you more motivated to consistently hit the gym than being held accountable by someone else. A friend or trainer can be a great way to keep you accountable, motivated, and pushing forward to achieve your goals!

These are just a couple of the ways to get started on your new year’s resolution goals and make them last! Check back next week for more new year’s resolution tips!
