Goals, everyone has a reason why they are here. Some for looks, some for performance, others just for overall health. Whether it is to do an unassisted pull up, drop pant sizes, train consistently, or compete in an athletic event, we all have reasons why we are here.
The once blank goal board is finally starting to fill up with everyone’s reason for being here. What is yours? Write it down on this board, put a date when you want it accomplished, look at it every time you walk in, cross it off once completed, and set a new one for yourself. Continue to grow daily, become better than you were the day before, and reach your goals.
I want to see this board filled up to where there is no more room to write. Grab a pen and make it happen.
I would like to announce that we will be having another weightlifting seminar at the end of this month. An email will be sent out shortly with more info on registering, but here is the general information:
March 29-30 (Sat/Sun)
3 hours per day: 12:30-3:30
Additional training session that you may attend, performed by coaches doing heavy lifts prior to the seminar
We will be covering snatch and clean and jerk. Weight lifting experience is not required, all levels will benefit. There are only a limited number of spots available, so please register ASAP once the link is sent out. Cost options will be provided in the email. The seminar will include technique, discussion, stretching exercises, nutrition, and more. I look forward to working with you!
Carbs are your main source of energy. This is why completely cutting carbs out of your diet is never okay. This will only leave you feeling weak and sluggish. It is most important to have carbs in your first three meals. On days you don’t workout, it is okay to not have carbs after lunch, but if you do train then you should have a small complex carb portion to restore your energy.
The difference between complex/good carbs and simple/bad carbs is that good carbs convert into energy while bad convert into fat. The molecular structure of each is that “good” carbs have a complex structure and will take longer to break down in your system, which is why your body stores them for energy. “Bad” carbs have a simple structure and your digestive system converts them in to glucose, a form of sugar, and then is quickly converted into fat.
GOOD (COMPLEX) CARBS: BAD (SIMPLE) CARBS:
-Digest Slow -Prolong Energy -Digest Fast -Short Energy
-High Fiber -Keep You Full Longer - Low Fiber(Refined/Processed) -Hungry Quicker
- Natural Sugar -Low Insulin Levels -Added Sugar -High Insulin Levels
-Convert into Energy -Weight Loss -Convert into Fat Cells -Weight Gain
-Sweet Potato -Brown Rice -Cane Sugar -White Flours
-Whole Grains -Quinoa -White bread, Rice, Pasta -Cakes
-Beans, Nuts, Seeds -Sodas, Juices
