I often see people in the gym talking. texting on their cell phone while doing their “power walk”. People do stupid things when they’re working out. You know, the meatheads that scream their asses off or the ones that give mean looks to everyone else while they work out. And my personal favorite, the ones that do the dumbest complicated exercises that don’t even work. Then we got the “correctors”. The ones who are unfit, fat and go around correcting and challenging people who actually know what they’re doing and saying. I can go on and on.
Whether it’s doing an exercise with improper form or lifting way to heavy for what their body can handle, or being way too nice to themselves with their workouts it’s always fun to meet all these different personalities in the gym. If you are the kind who likes to go to the gym, get into your own little bubble, not be distracted and just get on with your workout, then cheers to you.
Here are a few workout tips to go along with your diet;
-A 45 minute power walk before breakfast boosts up your metabolic rate, therefore you convert food into energy faster throughout the day.
-If you have a desk job where you sit on your ass all day can cause shoulder impingements and lower back problems. Sitting on a stability ball will help keep your spine straight and shoulders back.
-We all want a nice ass. Sculpt your butt by doing high intensity squats (jump squats) then top it off with the stair climber.
-You’ll burn about 26 calories per minute with the jump rope. I’ll let think about that for a second.
-Perhaps the most important tip of all.. Go to the gym to WORK-OUT not to chit chat with your bff.
With that said, here are some facts on the foods we eat;
- Walnuts contain an adequate amount of Omega-3. So if you don’t like fish, reach for some walnuts.
- Eating pineapple on an empty stomach targets fat cells.
- Including Fiber and “good carbs” to your breakfast keeps you fuller throughout the day.
- Baked potatoes are the ultimate food if you are trying to “get big”.
- Watermelon is a great way to satisfy your sweet tooth, and since it’s 90% water you will just piss it away a couple of hours later.
Oh I forgot. I saw some guy working out with his sunglasses one day. I just kept looking at him to make him uncomfortable. Don’t be that guy!
And no he wasn’t fucking blind, he was just a douche!
