Rant and Tip for May 5,2011

Happy Cinco De Mayo,
      I know what you are thinking, He doesn’t look Mexican, but hey I enjoy a good celebration. During you celebrations today you need to access what your goals are. If you are trying to lose body fat you may want to stay away from the alcohol especially beer. Beer has both alcohol and carbohydrates. Both are used as fuel in the body. If your body detects alcohol in the system it will burn that for fuel. What do you think the body does with the carbohydrates while you are burning the alcohol for fuel? That is right it is storing it as fat. He is has to store it somehow right. The good news is Tequila has no carbs so the alcohol is used and then you are back to square one, unless of course chowing down on 5 pounds of cheese covered nachos. The other thing I hear about tequila is that when some people drink tequila their clothes fall off. Now where are the tequila drinking ladies? Oh well Back to working out I need to get rid of some frustration. LOL I worked on benching last night. I used some heavy ass chains on the bar to help build explosive power. The way this works is, the chains are hanging from the bar and when you lower the weight to your chest it becomes lighter. This way you can explode into to the bar and it gets heavier as you lift it up, because the chains are coming up off the floor. Let me tell you it is one heck of a work out.

Have a happy workout!

Tip of the day:

Switch things up. You need to confuse the muscles every now and then. This can be as simple as increasing the weights or pushing out one more rep. One week you can go heavy with fewer reps and the next week go light with more reps. You can follow the same routine as far as exercises but play around with the weight you use. You muscles won’t like it but you will!!!!
