Trainer’s Tip of the Day #1

Tip #1:

Lift heavy.

There’s your very first tip.  Try lifting heavy instead of light weights.  It doesn’t have to be part of every single workout.  But if you are a mostly cardio or light-weights kind of person, you need to try this.  You could see major results….a) because it will increase your metabolism and burn more fat, even after your workout…b) because it will increase your strength and improve your muscle composition, giving you a firm, lean look.  It will improve your overall health and well-being.  Go as heavy as you can for 8-12 reps.  If, after 12 reps, you feel you can go longer, try increasing the weight a bit more.  And ladies, you won’t bulk up.  You just won’t.  Bonus:  With less reps, your workouts will be shorter!

Today I hereby commit to posting extremely brief tidbits of useful wisdom, termed “Trainers Tips,” on a regular basis.  You may ponder, ignore, or do as you wish with them as you go about your day.

Info about what?  Well…fitness.  Exercise tips, motivational tips, nutrition tips, health and well-being tips.  Maybe mind-blowing, maybe obvious but perhaps overlooked.  Tips to help you in your quest to become the happiest, healthiest you ever, one day at a time.

How often?  Most days.  Okay, I may get super busy or lazy one day.  Or two.  Don’t hold it against me.

Where?  Here.  On this site.  And my Facebook page and google+ page.

Why?  Because they’re short and sweet and force me to post to my blog regularly.  And because I love helping my readers in any small way I can, of course.
