Free weights versus machines? Which is better?

Posted: 09/03/2015

I have been hearing this argument in gyms for years. There are pros and cons to both depending on the client and fitness trainers. Machines can be helpful for those clients that are new to exercise or may be suffering from an injury. They are easier to teach, they require less balance and coordination. Machines give the client a chance to focus on the movement...

Muscle Soreness Explained

Posted: 07/15/2015

Muscle soreness following a workout (from 12 to 48 hours later) is very different than the soreness one feels during a workout. The "burn" of an excess of lactic acid in the body fades away as the body recovers from an intense anabolic workout and oxygen levels return to normal. Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness (DOMS) is a completely different story. DOMS is...

How much weight should I lift?

Posted: 06/25/2015

"Low weight higher reps". " I don't want to get bulky". "I just want to tone". These are some of the most common statements I have heard in my 20 years in the fitness industry.

One Huge Reason Women Should Lift Heavier Weight

Posted: 06/17/2015

When it comes to exercise, I’m all for people doing what they enjoy and what works for them.

So, do I think strength training with a focus on getting stronger and improving performance...

Lifting weights and strength training aren’t relegated to the world of body building alone. In fact, many pros recommend including weight training in your regular fitness routine for a variety of reasons. In addition to the added cardiovascular benefits and toning, lifting weights can also help individuals live and move more comfortably in their day-to-day lives. Weight...

Lock It and Pop It

Posted: 03/08/2013

When lifting weights or performing resistance based exercise, you often need to fully extend a leg or arm to complete a particular motion. Unfortunately, that leads many participants to extend the limb in such a way that it locks the elbow or knee joint. This may feel natural in some cases, but it can be incredibly dangerous. Under the added pressure of weights or resistance...

Help for Muscle Soreness

Posted: 06/17/2010

Even those of us who are in top physical shape may still have to deal with muscle soreness from time to time. For years this soreness was attributed to a buildup of lactic acid, a muscle by-product. A common remedy was a good hot soak in a tub with a variety of mineral salts or baking soda, which was believed to leach the acid out and relieve the pain. However, we know now that...

Build and Repair Muscles with Protein

Posted: 05/04/2010

Most nutritionists will recommend three eight ounce (aproximately one cup) portions of protein foods every day. Meats are a prime source of protein and the ones to eat are those that are 95 percent lean. Some choices are white chicken or turkey breasts, egg whites, fish and shell fish.   If you prefer a vegetarian choice for your proteins choose beans and legumes...
