The Cure for Cardio ADD

Today I’m going to share with you an article I wrote for EliteFTS a while back. I received great feedback about the article and so I wanted to share it with you as well. If you suffer from “Cardio ADD” or just need some new ideas to increase your rate of fat loss or conditioning, you’ll really like these.

Enjoy!

You don’t mind going to the gym and lifting heavy weights. You don’t mind pushing yourself to reach a new personal record on the bench press, squat, deadlift, and other various exercises. You also love the challenge of shattering your personal records on assistance exercises every week. However, when it comes to conditioning work or any form of “cardio,” going to the dentist can actually sound like a much more appealing option.

The One Thing You MUST Do

Today it’s all about the one thing you must do in each and every training session if you want to transform your body. It doesn’t matter if your primary goal is to lose body fat, get stronger, gain muscle, or get faster. The rule remains the same.

You must improve your performance. Some people also call this setting a PR (personal record) in each workout as well. The main point is that you have to do better than you did in your previous training session.

Interview with the Renegade

Today’s interview is with Jason Ferruggia – a true renegade in the health and fitness industry. Jason owns and operates Renegade Gym in New Jersey, so it goes without saying that if you are in that area, you should definitely be training at Renegade Gym.

Jason has been called “the most controversial man in the fitness industry today” for his outspoken views and politically incorrect, underground training methods. For that fact alone, I knew I had to interview him and pick his brain.

Girl Power-Strong and Feminine

On Saturday my Mom went on to prove that, once again, women can be strong AND feminine.

You may remember that a few months ago my Mom competed in her first push/pull meet. At that meet she weighed in at 148 pounds and benched 115 and deadlifted 235.

After that meet her goal was to lose weight, but also compete in another powerlifting meet.

Women Strength Training

We finally got the snow we were predicted to get this weekend. It was beautiful, and my crazy dog and I had a blast playing in it!

On Saturday the ladies and I headed to the gym for a great training session. If you’ve read this blog at least once, I’m sure you know that I believe strength training is a great way for women to build the body they want, lose fat, and gain confidence.

The other two gals in the following video have lost a combined total of 53 pounds within a three month time period. And they accomplished this goal with simple and smart nutrition and a healthy dose of strength training three to four days per week.

7 Gym Lessons

1) Everyone has heard the popular slogan “no pain, no gain!” Well, I am not a believer in that phrase if someone is experiencing physical pain, and I’m not talking about stopping a set just because your muscles are burning. If a certain movement or exercise causes physical pain, stop!

Physical pain is not necessary for success, and in fact is very counterproductive. However, there are times when the phrase “no strain, no gain” can be applied. For instance, if you are trying to increase your strength, then there are going to be times when you’re going to have to strain to push (or pull) a heavy weight.

Another phrase I prefer: “no brain, no gain”. Don’t just train hard, but please, train smart. Doing stupid stuff in the gym will just get you injured.

Why Women Should Deadlift

Deadlifts. They are by far one of the best exercises for producing overall strength. But even more than that, they can even help you improve your physical appearance too. So, before we get into the meat of this article, I want to explain why women in particular should do deadlifts on a regular basis.

There are several reasons why women should incorporate deadlifts into their programs. One of the most important reasons I think deadlifting is important for women is that it allows them to realize their true strength potential. It never fails; anytime I train women and get them to pull a heavy triple on the deadlift, they absolutely love it. Something just seems to click in their minds when the rip a heavy weight off the floor.

Back to Basics for Better Results

Tony Gentilcore Unplugged ImageIt seems like everywhere you look nowadays someone has come up with the “latest and greatest way to train” and the “latest and greatest diet and nutrition information” that is full of promises that you can get your best body ever.

More often than not, this information is just BS. In fact, many so called “experts” intentionally create diets and or training programs that are very complex because doing so will create the illusion that they are onto something great, and to cover up just how little they truly know about the topic.

So if you are overwhelmed with the surplus of information available about training and nutrition, I suggest this: get back to the basics of training and nutrition to reach your body composition and health goals. It worked 100+ years ago, and it will work today.
