"Every soul who comes to earth with a leg or two at birth must wrestle his opponents knowing it's not what is, it's what can be that measures worth. Make it hard, just make it possible and through pain I'll not complain. My spirit is unconquerable, fearless I will face each foe, for I know I am capable. I don't care what's probable, through blood, sweat, and tears, I am Unstoppable."

Anthony Robles in our Summer bootcamp

So I was able to get the video that we took of Anthony Robles joining us for one of our early morning bootcamp workouts.  We really had a blast having him there and just wanted to say thankyou Anthony for joining us.  We did some fun relays so just enjoy and keep in mind we're not professional cameramen.  : )

Make sure when you're going to do a workout no matter what workout it is do a nueromuscular warm up first.  Wake your joints up first since all of our movement starts at the joints make sure and rotate those joints before you stretch your muscles.  It's also a good idea to do more of a dynamic warmup and stretch, than to do a static stretch.

One of the most abundant amino acids found in your body is Glutamine and it can do a lot of great things to help you during and after your workout.  Here are some of the benefits - 
1. Helps build Proteins, and repair muscle
2. Promotes muscle growth
3. Increases muscle hydration
4. Stimulates growth hormone release
5. Speeds healing and improves your recovery time from injuries or surgeries
6. Can boost your immunity system
7. Can enhance mental function

If you feel like you would benefit from any of that or you have questions let me know and we can see if Glutamine would be a good option for you.

Something new

I thought I would share something new with you about the benefits of adding rotation to your workout.

1. Rotation is Power
2. It helps prevent injuries
3. Its functional training which means in our everyday lives rotation is what we do everyday so adding rotation into our workout routines will better prepare us for life.

One of the best programs hands down out there that will give you the best workout with rotation added to it is Rip 60.  Come check it out here at Gold's Gym.

Mountain Climbers

How many of you like doing Mountain Climbers?  My client today that did them didn't have anything good to say about them.  Great total body exercise and it's also a good exercise to throw into the middle of your workout to get your heart rate up.  The next time you do this exercise let me know what you think.  ; )

A good snack

So I have to be honest in telling you I was not a big fan of greek yogurt but just recently my wife had me try some Dannon Oikos nonfat greek yogurt and it was actually really good.  It has fruit mixed into it and they have a lot of different flavors.  I just had a mango and apricot one this morning.  Definitely a good healthy snack that you could take to work with you so give it try.  It's only 130 calories and it is a great source of protein.  Let me know what your favorite kind is.  : )

Omega 3 fatty acids

One of the healthy fats out there that I recommend to all of my clients would be your omega 3 fatty acid.  First off the main food you can find this in is fish.  So if you eat a lot of fish you probably don't need to take an extra fish oil supplement but if you don't eat a lot of fish I would recommend taking a supplement that includes omega 3 fatty acids.  Some of the benefits of this fatty acid is that it is great for your joints and there is also strong researched evidence that the omega 3's EPA and DHA help with heart health and lower your triglycerides.

Food Drive for the Food Pantry

Just letting you know this would be a great opportunity to help our community out and get something for yourself as well.  Bring a bag of non perishable food items into Gold's Gym or any GNC location in Logan and get 2 free training sessions and a nutriotional consultation.  All bagged items will be given to the food pantry to help our community.  This will be going on for the whole month of October.  Let me know if you have questions.
