The Benefits Of Vitamin B

Vitamins rarely get the attention they deserve. Now is the time to fix that. Get the most out of your workout with vitamin B. Here’s how!

Remaining healthy and taking control of our nutrition to prevent certain medical conditions has been a hot topic for a long time. Good nutrition is tied to good health. It is also linked to the prevention and treatment of many conditions. Getting the recommended amounts of vitamins each day is an important part of the nutrition equation. B vitamins, in particular, are vital for preventive care.

Food has the power to work in two ways: It can elevate you and make you strong, or it can debilitate you and leave you weak.

One of the top concerns for many is to prevent a stroke. This is a subject very close to my heart as my father has recently suffered a serious stroke. And, I know I’m not alone in this. Strokes are becoming more common. The chance of prevention or at least, management of the condition with good nutrition is something of great interest to me and to many.

Strokes affect not just the patient. They affect the entire family and circle of friends. When I discovered new research that has linked Vitamin B with a lowered stroke risk, I was excited and eager to share it with everyone.

Background Facts On A Stoke 

Strokes occur when the supply of blood to the brain is either interrupted or reduced. When this happens, the brain doesn’t get enough oxygen or nutrients. This causes brain cells to die.

Strokes occur due to problems with the blood supply to the brain. Either the blood supply which carries oxygen to the brain is blocked or a blood vessel within the brain bursts.

Strokes are also more likely to affect people if they are overweight, aged 55 or older, have a personal or family history of stroke, don’t exercise much, drink heavily or use illicit drugs.

The good news is that some risk factors for a stroke can be controlled or eliminated. Others, sadly can’t.

There are two main types of stroke: Ischemic and hemorrhagic.

These Are The Causes of Ischemic Stroke

Ischemic strokes are caused by blood clots that block blood flow to the brain. Blockages can form when the arteries supplying blood to the brain become narrowed by a build-up of plaque. Plaque is a mix of fat, cholesterol and other substances that build up in the inner lining of the artery wall. This condition is often known as atherosclerosis or hardening of the arteries.

These Are The Causes of Hemorrhagic Stroke

Bleeding in or around the brain causes hemorrhagic strokes. Bleeding occurs when a weakened blood vessel in the brain ruptures and leaks into the surrounding brain tissue. The leaked blood can put too much pressure on the blood cells in the brain, causing damage. Chronic high blood pressure is the most common reason for hemorrhagic stroke.

Two types of weakened blood vessels can cause hemorrhagic strokes. These types are aneurysm and arteriovenous malformations (AVMs). An aneurysm is an abnormally shaped weak point in a blood vessel. AVMs are clusters of abnormally connected blood vessels.

These Stroke Factors Can’t Be Changed

Some risk factors for a stroke can be treated or controlled. Other risk factors can’t. Your family history is important.

Why?

Strokes often run in families. Your stroke risk may be higher if a parent or sibling has had a stroke.

Age, gender, and race also play a role. Stroke is most common in adults over the age of 65. Women have more strokes than men. Strokes kill more women than men each year. People of African, Hispanic, Indian and Alaska Native descent also have a higher risk of stroke than non-Hispanic whites or Asians. Of course, your history also can’t be changed. So if you’ve had a stroke in the past it will stay a part of you.

 

These Are Some Stroke Risk Factors That Can Be Prevented

There are some conditions that are linked to strokes. Prevention is key. If you suffer from any of the following conditions, you could be a risk. Consult your doctor.

High blood pressure is the main risk factor for stroke. It can damage and weaken arteries in the body so that they burst or clog more easily. Cholesterol is a fatty substance that contributes to plaques in the arteries. This can block blood flow to the brain. It’s also been said that people with diabetes are four times as likely to have a stroke as those without it.

Heart disease, or coronary artery disease, is the build-up of plaque in the arteries. This can increase your risk of stroke. The same can be said for other heart conditions, including heart valve defects and irregular heartbeat.

Some lifestyle habits and conditions can also increase your risk of stroke. These include smoking, a bad diet, obesity, stress/depression, alcohol abuse, low physical activity and use of illicit drugs, including cocaine and amphetamines.

This Is The Stroke And B Vitamins Link

You’ve likely seen the vitamin B headlines. They were something like “Vitamin B Supplements May Lower Stroke Risk.” Unlike many other reports that failed to find a big effect of vitamin B supplementation on stroke risk, new research has now shown a link with taking these vitamins and lower homocysteine levels and significantly reducing the stroke rate.

There are many B vitamins. They include thiamin, riboflavin, niacin, folate, vitamin B6, vitamin B12, biotin and pantothenic acid. They work collectively, and on their own, in every cell to do many different jobs. This includes helping the body release the energy it gets from carbs, proteins, and fats.

Although all vitamins are great, I feel it’s important to point out that certain B vitamins are more effective than others when stroke prevention is the goal. I’ll begin with what are known to be the two most important B vitamins when it comes to strokes. These are folate (B9) and B12. Both are important regulators of metabolism. Many cereals are now fortified with folate, also known as folic acid. Folic acid is a supplemental form of folate.

The new study showed that many biological factors may affect whether vitamin B supplements will affect stroke risk. Here’s a good tip to remember which foods are high in folate: The word folate has the same root as the word foliage. Leafy greens such as spinach and turnip greens and other fresh fruits and veggies are all great sources of folate. All grain products such as breads, pastas and rice are fortified with folate. Aim to consume 400 mg of folate daily. It promotes red blood cell health and nervous system function.

Vitamin B12 Can Shield You!

B12 is the big one when it comes to the search to prevent strokes. It’s been said that it’ll boost your energy,levels of concentration, memory and mood. It also called cobalamin, a nutrient you need for overall good health.

B12 is one of eight B vitamins that help your body convert the food you eat into glucose. This gives you energy. Vitamin B12 has a number of extra functions. It’s needed for the production of parts of DNA, production of red blood cells, regeneration of bone marrow and the lining of the gastro and respiratory tracts. It’s also for maintaining the health of the central nervous system and spinal cord and prevention of megaloblastic anemia.

 

How Much You Need And Where To Find It.

The amount of vitamin B12 you need is mainly determined by your age. Here are a few guidelines to remember. From birth to 6 months, 0.4 mcg is the right amount, while infants 7 to 12 months should get 0.5 mcg. Children between 1 to 3 years should get 0.9 mcg. When they’re between 4 to 8, 1.2 mg is ideal. Kids between 9 to 13 years old should have 1.8 mcg. Teens from 14 to 18 should have 2.4 mcg. Pregnant teens and women should get 2.6 mcg, while breastfeeding teens and women should have 2.8 mcg. Adults should get 2.4 mcg.

Vitamin B12 is found naturally in foods that come from animals. This includes meat, fish, eggs and dairy products. It may also be found in some fortified cereals and nutritional yeast. Those who may be at risk for vitamin B12 deficiency include people who have celiac disease, Crohn’s disease or are HIV-positive. People who take prescription antacids, antiseizure medications, colchicine or chemo medications are also at risk.

Vegans and those who don’t eat meat or dairy products are likely to be deficient.

These Are Symptoms Of B12 Deficiency.

Symptoms of vitamin B12 deficiency include shakiness, muscle weakness, stiff muscles, fatigue, incontinence, low blood pressure and mood swings. Older adults are in the age group most likely to be deficient in vitamin B12.

There is evidence that it can reduce the risk of both heart attacks and strokes. If you think you or a family member may be low, then vitamin B12 supplements are available in pill form, in tablets that dissolve under the tongue and in a gel that you apply inside the nostrils.

Long-term deficiency can cause permanent damage to your brain and central nervous system. Stores of B12 can last for up to a year. Great food sources of vitamin B12 include shellfish, liver, fish, crustaceans, fortified soy and tofu, fortified cereals, red meat, low-fat dairy, and eggs.

These Are The Rest Of The B Vitamins.

Some foods are especially good sources of B vitamins. Other foods have very little. Luckily, B vitamins are widely distributed throughout the food supply. That means if you’re eating a varied, balanced diet with foods from all food groups, you’re most likely getting as many vitamins as you need.

Thiamin

Your body relies on thiamin to regulate your appetite and support your metabolism. Some of the best sources of thiamin are pork, ham, dark green leafy veggies, fortified whole-grain cereals and baked goods, wheat germ, enriched rice, green pea, lentils and nuts like almonds and pecans. Women and men need 1.1 and 1.2 mg daily.

Riboflavin

Consume riboflavin for healthy skin. Milk and milk products such as yogurt and cheese are rich in riboflavin. Asparagus, spinach and other dark green leafy veggies, fish, chicken, eggs and fortified cereals also supply large amounts of riboflavin to your diet. Aim for an intake of 1.1 mg.

Niacin

Chicken, turkey, salmon and other fish including canned tuna packed in water are all excellent natural sources of niacin. Fortified cereals, legumes, peanuts, pasta and whole wheat also supply varying amounts. Niacin promotes healthy nerve function, benefits your cardio system and aids in energy production. It’s thought that men need 16 mg of niacin, while women need 14 mg.

Vitamin B6

Some of the best sources of vitamin B6 are poultry, seafood, bananas, leafy green veggies like spinach, potatoes, and fortified cereals. Your diet should include 1.3 mg of B6 daily to support new red blood cell growth.

Biotin and Pantothenic Acid

Liver and egg yolks are the richest dietary sources of biotin. This is a nutrient needed for a healthy metabolism. Fortunately, it’s found a lot in the food supply. It’s unlikely that anyone eating a balanced, varied diet will have a deficiency. Salmon, pork, and avocado are good sources. Most fruits and veggies have a little biotin, as do cheeses and grain foods.

Yogurt and avocado are both good sources of biotin, a vitamin needed for enzyme function. It’s also found in a wide variety of foods such as legumes including lentils and split peas, sweet potatoes, mushrooms and broccoli. Consume 5 mg daily.

Conclusion

The importance of taking note of the foods you eat and how they can potentially save you from serious medical conditions like strokes can’t be overemphasized. Seldom do we give food the attention it deserves.

Food has the power to work in two ways. It can elevate you and make you strong. Or, it can debilitate you and leave you weak, leading to many medical conditions that could be prevented. Stay protected by getting your vitamin B.

Fitness And Recovery for: Better Humans, Crossfitters, Weightlifters…

What is the best way to recover?

Should you focus on nutrition? Should you do a daily ice bath? Should you sleep in a hyperbaric chamber?

Maybe all of the above?

I am not talking about recovering from injury. I am talking about recovering from daily training.

Wait, maybe I should start by asking you a question…Do you actively recover from your daily workouts?

A lot of great coaches advocate for a 1:1 recovery. Meaning, if you spend an hour in the gym, you should spend one hour on recovery activities; activities which we are about cover.

The best way to look at training is as a formula (hat tip to Mark Twight):

  • Training = Work + Recovery

Good recovery practices also allow more frequent high-intensity training sessions.

If you neglect your recovery it will slowly creep up on you until…BOOM! You’re injured, burnt out, etc.

Then, you are that incredibly annoying person who always talks about “the good old days” before your injury.

Don’t be that guy.

Bottom line:

  • Recover well. Be well.

Here’s how…

New to the fitness and recovery game?

First, things first…Yes, the same picture is in this article twice! Why? Because if you understand this simple concept you understand recovery!

Recovery Rundown

If you don’t focus on recovery, the above “whiteboard wisdom” is the EASIEST way to understand it, and the best place to start. A commonly misunderstood principle is that training, while good for you, is also a stressor on your body which needs to be counterbalanced with recovery.

Got it? Let’s get to your action steps.

Recovery Action Steps:

  1. First, focus on getting high-quality sleep.
  2. Next, focus on your nutrition. Optimize your pre and post workout meals, then attack your overall diet.
  3. After that, start adding contrast showers to your daily routine. Trust me on this one.
  4. Lastly, get a lacrosse ball and learn how to use it.

Need more info…?

  1. Sleep is simple and important. Learn all you could want to know about sleep: Three Essential Elements to Sloth-Like Sleep, The Definitive Guide to Sleep and Fitness, and How to Make Working Out Suck Less.
  2. Want more on nutrition? I usually suggest going APAP (as Paleo as possible)
  3. Never heard of a contrast shower? OK, read all about contrast showers here, and do so immediately!
  4. Don’t own a lacrosse ball? Check out this video for some basic lacrosse ball work.

Know the fitness and recovery basics?

Recovery Rundown 

If you know the basics from above, your next logical step (and most affordable) is what can I take? What supplements can help? And really, most supplements will show marginal results for you if you are not really hitting it hard with sleep, nutrition and basic DIY recovery.

So what supplements?

Recovery Action Steps

Consider the following…

  1. Magnesium – There is evidence that marginal magnesium deficiency impairs exercise performance and amplifies the negative consequences of strenuous exercise (e.g., oxidative stress).
  2. BCAAs – BCAAs are not an athletic performance enhancer (directly), but rather a way to enhance muscle recovery and boost the immune system.
  3. Turmeric – If you have a diet high in anti-oxidants and anti-inflammatory foods (like turmeric) you’ll be able to train harder, more effectively and more efficiently in a given time period.
  4. Essential Oils…? – These oils have gained a lot of popularity in recent years, and honestly if it weren’t for some really positive personal uses I wouldn’t suggest them. But you can take a look at essential oils as a method to recovery.

Need more info…?

  1. Magnesium helps with strength and aerobic power. Magnesium may speed recovery and help protect you from inflammation due to how it regulates gene expression.
  2. BCAAs have been popular for a long time! It took awhile for the science to catch up to their effectiveness, but they help by decreasing exercise-induced muscle damage and promoting muscle-protein synthesis. They also are thought to boost the immune system.
  3. Turmeric is an Ultra Endurance Secret…Those hardcore endurance athletes know how to recover because, well, it’s an absolute necessity. Apparently, they have been using Turmeric due to the curcumin found in the spice and it can REALLY aid in the recovery process.

Anything else I can do in fitness and recovery? OH YEA!

Alright, ready for the more advanced stuff?

Recovery Rundown 

If you have the basic understanding of recovery down; i.e. you have good sleep and nutrition habits and you are supplementing as necessary to optimize your recovery you may want to take it to the next level.

Well, there is a next level, but it can get kind of crazy.  But, hey I want to give you all the better-human recovery options possible!

Recovery Action Steps

  1. The Marc Pro – The Marc Pro is an Electrical Muscle Stimulation Machine (EMS) for Muscle Recovery. Using a machine like this will enhance post exercise recovery in the normalization of tissue through the movement of nourishment and waste.
  2. Hyperthermic Conditioning – Acclimating your body to heat stress by intermittent whole-body hyperthermia which can increase nutrient delivery to muscles…and about a million other positive benefits.

Need more info…?

  1. An EMS can actually help you grow new blood vessels! A published research studyshowed a significant increase in limb blood flow during the first application of Marc Pro technology. After a three-week period of using Marc Pro five days per week, limb blood flow increased markedly more upon application. This additional increase or reserve was possible because the consistent use resulted in new additional vessels in the area (angiogenesis) giving more capacity to the region.

Get Strong By Monitoring Your Training

what is required to grow stronger?

The first ingredient is obvious – There has to be a training dose. And just like with a medicine you might take, there is always an initial exposure, then a response. An effect. But that said, it’s still hard to know for sure.

We can remove some of that response uncertainty by building great habits. For example, if you are mindful of the #windowofgainz after training and disciplined enough to make quality sleep a daily priority, then you will be able to tolerate and adapt to much higher training doses. In other words, you can grow stronger, much faster.

But there’s still another step to take if you want to get the best possible result. To make the very most of your training, you need to build a habit of measurement and careful observation.

Word to the wise. 

For optimal performance, measure.

There is training dose, food and rest. But you still need to close the loop by actively monitoring your response to training. Depending on what you observe, you can then adjust your dose up or down, whatever it takes to achieve a relatively steady rate of progression.

There’s no other way to grow stronger, actually.

While there are a million things you could measure, in infinite detail, the truth is that nothing complicated is required. The simple act of taking measure is itself most of the magic. When you pay close attention, to where your work is going and if it’s working, you’ll naturally notice more and more ways to improve. That’s just one of the perks that comes with making the effort and paying attention.

To get you started, here are some of the most useful variables to monitor.

Once you learn to monitor, strength progress is easy. 

First, know your dose.

One of the most useful things you can know is the total amount of work performed.

That’s important because some training sessions will turn out great. You’ll crush PR’s and feel like you’ve made a ton of progress. But then other times things won’t turn out as planned. You might not even be able to identify a cause at first. In both cases, it can be hard to get a true sense of how well you’re actually progressing over time, and whether your training is serving your needs.

Keep a training log, preferably in a simple spreadsheet that will allow you to plot your numbers. Capture the movements you’re practicing. The number of sets and reps you are performing. And of course, write down the weight you lifted during each set. If you multiply those numbers together, that’s your training volume load, or total dose. A very useful thing to reference.

If that number is going up month to month, you’re probably well on your way to more new PR’s. Likewise, you might notice that everything was going great in training, right up until you exceeded a certain amount of work.

Now that you have some data to guide you, adjusting the dose is a simple step.

Never tracked training before? CLICK  for a starter spreadsheet from Shrugged Coach Mike McGoldrick.

Get time on your side. 

Another very useful performance indicator is time.

You start every training session with your plan, your program, the prescribed work for the day. Next to what you will do, the next biggest consideration is how long it’s going to take you to get that work done.

Think about all the time you take to warm-up, mobilize, to set up your barbell and adjust load between repetitions. Think about how long it takes you to complete every single repetition.

All things being equal, if you can get your work done quicker – with a heightened sense of urgency and intent – then you will grow stronger from the effort.

And likewise, if you notice that it’s taking you longer and longer to get the training done, then you can expect your overall performance to start taking a dive as well. A diluted training dose is obviously not as potent and carries less effect.

Track and be respectful of your time. It’s an honest indicator of your true priorities, and your real effort.

How long does it take to get your work done? The clock doesn’t lie. 

Assess fatigue by getting vertical.

One thing you’re trying to measure directly is overall fatigue. After all, every single dose of heavy training is a stress that carries a big fatigue after-effect.

Your body will respond to each dose, but at a cost. And the more and more you dose, the higher the recovery debt. There’s nothing wrong with this. One thing you want to do in training is to purposely over-reach a bit.

For example, after 3 weeks of hard, heavy and progressive squats, it’s completely normal for fatigue, aches and pains to set in. That would indicate that you’ve placed sufficient demand on the body, enough to spur the flesh into adaptation. After a week of tapering and recovery work you can expect to feel great, and ready to push towards a new max. But sometimes it just doesn’t work out that way. Why not?

One reason is that fatigue creep is subtle. You can add weight quickly to a barbell for a long time, without really noticing how tired you’re getting. Strength is well preserved, for a while. But then even an empty barbell starts to feel heavy, and all the repetitions start looking a little slow. A big progress plateau or all-out regression is never too far behind.

Speed kills, in both directions. And that’s why it’s a great indicator.

Again, there a long list of things you could measure, but maybe the simplest, most repeatable test would be a basic vertical jump. This movement is a fundamental test of peak force, along with power and the rate at which you can produce force.

If you can jump higher, then you’ve improved these force and power variables. And it follows that the opposite is true. If your vertical jump starts to tank, and it’s not time to unload yet, then you need to be aware that there could be a fatigue and recovery debt building. Again, time to adjust dose.

And as a practical point, you can also use a decreasing vertical jump as an obvious cue to increase the amount of jumps in your training. That alone will help you get much stronger.

 

A useful thing to know – Are you jumping well or not?

Nail the simple, critical stuff. 

Nail the simple stuff.

Again, there’s so much to track. Feel free to experiment and seek out variables that work best for you. But just before we close, there’s one more point to make.

Until you build a true habit of monitoring the most fundamental markers of performance, nothing else will matter or make much sense.

Heart rate made it on my chalkboard notes because, when measured consistently, daily, its variability can be a great indicator of parasympathetic nervous system function. If you notice heart rate elevation, a lack of variation from morning to night and activity to rest, or even too much variation in your heart rate, then you’ve got a big clue that something isn’t right.

An even simpler bit of advice is to track your body weight and total hours of sleep, particularly if you’re goal is also to lose or gain muscle mass. You’d be shocked to know just how many athletes are struggling and fiddling with their programming while all the while under-eating and getting 6 hours or less of quality sleep per night.

Note: There’s no program or coach in the world that can correct and accommodate such a gross oversight. You couldn’t make a more fundamental mistake.

Until you’re body-weight is stable, or increasing by a half-pound or so per week, and until your total hours of sleep is at least 8 hours per night (with an additional hour or so on tough training days), then you’ve really got nothing else to worry about. The only prescription you need is to eat and sleep more. The fancier, less effective interventions can all wait.

If nothing else, track sleep. 

Remember your real training goal. 

It isn’t to maximize the intensity or randomness of your training. That’s not what makes you stronger.

The best thing you could do is to know how much work you’re doing, where the effort’s going, and how well you’re responding to your training. If you can do that, you will quickly begin to string together more and more optimal training experiences. And, you will see for yourself that getting your work done, day by day, month by month, is the only real predictor of training success.

This is only a starting point. Feel free to leave some questions below, we’d love to help you with your training. Also, if you’ve got some other indicators that you’ve tracked successfully in your training, please share your experience. I’d love to hear about it.

How To Boost Your Performance With Tapering

Whether you’re an elite athlete or recreational competitor, we all want to perform at our best when it matters most.

Training for peak performance involves a few basic components: 1) work hard, 2) eat right, and 3) rest. But it turns out that ‘peaking’ and being your best is more complex than just doing these three things well. To perform maximally, you also have to time these components just right – You have to understand how to taper.

Here’s what you need to know.

What is tapering?

Tapering is planned recovery training (rest!) before an event. In other words, a programmed taper is a formalized reduction in training volume for a specific period of time designed to enhance performance.

There are a lot of misconceptions regarding tapering, but with decades of research on the topic the science is pretty clear – It works, without a doubt.

Will tapering make me lose my fitness?

No.

Many athletes worry that too much rest before their competition will make them lose strength and endurance, but research shows this just isn’t so (Reference 1). Fitness in endurance athletes (measured by maximal aerobic capacity, VO2max) is not lost, but may actually increase following taper.

Along those same lines, with strength/power athletes, short-term complete rest (about one week or less) does not reduce the force-producing capacity of muscle. Rather, the taper has been shown to actually improve strength (2).

That’s exactly what you’re after.

Performance gains after tapering

Tapering has been shown to increase performance in events ranging from swim sprints, cycling time trials, to triathlons.

For any event you can expect taper to increase your performance by about 2-3%. Sure, that doesn’t sound like much, but a few percent points add up FAST, especially during long bouts of high-intenstity endurance competition.

Additionally, an effective taper has been shown to increase bench press and squat performance by 2-3% in strength athletes (3) and throwing distance by 5-6% in track & field athletes (4).

How does it work?

We know that rest and full recovery are important, but why?

Rest effects all levels of physiology (whole body to the molecular levels). And, while we know that 1) rest is necessary for peak performance, and 2) tapering is a great way to rest effectivelybefore a competition, the exact mechanism of this “rest-related augmentation” have yet to be established for strength/power athletes.

With strength, performance increases in the early phase of the taper (one week or less) are likely caused by a reversal of neuromuscular fatigue (5). In other words, reducing training volume gives the neuromuscular system a chance to reach its full potential.

Recent research in endurance athletes has found an interesting cause for taper’s effectiveness at the muscle cell level (6, 7). You might predict that tapering primarily targets endurance athlete’s slow-twitch (aerobic) muscle fibers. However, research has shown that slow-twitch fibers are unaffected by tapering, but fast-twitch fibers, which are 5-8 times more powerful, significantly grow and show improved power output following rest (1).

This improved fast-twitch power may allow for a harder push to the finish line during competition.

How to taper

An effective taper can be implemented in various ways, and generally varies by sport. The data is pretty clear for endurance athletes, but less defined for strength/power athletes.

To peak for endurance competition you would generally want to reduce training volume by about 40-70% for 2-3 weeks prior to produce significant performance benefits. A recent review on strength athletes (similar to endurance) suggests significant performance benefits are attained with a 30-70% reduction in volume (within each training session or less overall training frequency) up to four weeks prior to competition,  while maintaining or slightly increasing intensity (2).

There is no one perfect taper strategy for everyone, so you have to experiment to see what works best for you. However, the key element of tapering for any athlete is volume. To rest effectively, slash your volume while you maintain or slight increase training intensity prior to competition.

The results will speak for themselves.

Take home message 

Tapering is an often overlooked, but it’s a critical component of your training.

Decades of research show that proper tapering 1) does not decrease fitness, 2) effectively improves performance in endurance and strength/power athletes, 3) works through several mechanisms (include neuromuscular and muscle cell adaptions).

Many athletes that train rigorously and eat right don’t actually reach their potential because they overlook one important component – planed rest! If you haven’t incorporated tapering into your pre-competition routine to date, it’s probably time to start.

If you’ve got training questions just leave them in the comments below. I’d love to help you out.

9 Unexpected Benefits To “Listening To Your Body”

I hear the phrase “listen to your body” thrown around pretty often lately. But since it’s a slightly enigmatic concept, most people don’t really understand what it means or why they should do it. In magazines and social media, you will often see fit, beautiful women holding green juices or eating peanut butter talking about “listening to their bodies.” This naturally leading to the assumption that listening to your body is some kind of diet or anti-diet, but that’s dramatically selling it short.

“Listening to your body” actually just refers to learning how to tune into the way your body talks to you. You’re constantly receiving messages from your body in various forms like hunger, thirst, pain, pleasure, lust, sickness, and the desire to find a bathroom. Every single message is physical; we feel them physically. Some messages feel pleasant, and some feel unpleasant, but that doesn’t mean that the message itself is actually good or bad. In our culture we have such an aversion to feeling uncomfortable or unpleasant feelings that our first impulse upon feeling them is often to suppress those messages as quickly as possible. Unfortunately, when you automatically suppress your body’s messages, you miss out on what the message was here to tell you.

Let’s take appendicitis for example. If you suddenly experience severe abdominal pain and spike a high fever, you go to the doctor to see what’s going on, and you get diagnosed with appendicitis. You probably get treated with either antibiotics or surgery. In this case, the pain and fever were your body’s message to you, and your response was to explore what the message was trying to tell you. It turns out your appendix was trying to say “Hey, I’m infected; help!”

But what if instead of exploring what the message meant, you just ignored it? What if you just took a bunch of painkillers and fever-reducers to suppress the message, and carried on as usual? Most likely, despite “feeling better,” the infection would continue to get worse until you found yourself dealing with a potentially life-threatening ruptured appendix. Listening to your body in a case like this one could actually save your life.

Unfortunately, people rarely seek out solutions for messages that are less loud and clear. Society has us convinced that it’s normal to feel broken and shitty most of the time. Most people live with chronic fatigue, headaches, low back pain, anxiety, and/or poor digestion. They suppress and ignore their body’s messages as best they can, never stopping to explore what the message is there to teach them.

Here’s the truth: humans are meant to feel far more vibrant and wonderful than most people feel nowadays. But you can’t achieve optimal levels of energy and health without learning how to listen to, and interpret, your body’s messages to you. Some messages are easy, like appendicitis. Some may take years of exploration and serious detective work. But the benefits extends far beyond what you’ll find in fitness magazines. Here are some less expected ways your life improves when you learn to listen to your body:

1. Feel less crazy around food

 

Many women have completely screwed up hunger and fullness signals, thanks to years or decades of intermittent dieting. Many of my clients have spent their entire adult lives suppressing and ignoring their body’s messages around food in an effort to lose weight, and they come to me completely unaware of what it actually feels like to be hungry or full.

As you might imagine, being able to hear your body when it says “I’m hungry” and “I’m full” makes it a helluva lot easier to know when to eat and when to stop. It also makes it easier to know what to eat. Imagine knowing the difference between real cravings and emotional/boredom cravings, and being able to consciously decide which ones you’ll act on!

Doing the work (and yes, trust me, this one often takes a lot of work) to hear and understand your body’s messages around food and eating will make it easier to lose and keep off weight, remove guilt from the eating equation, and erase chronic stress around food. Instead of trying to adhere to random set of rules and restrictions, it becomes mind-blowingly simple: what does my body want right now, and will that make me feel good?

2. Less pain

Many people sit at desks all day, and move only during their workouts. It’s impossible to completely undo the physical stress of a lifestyle like that, but by listening to your body, you can keep the damage to a minimum. Lower back pain isn’t a lifetime sentence, for example. It’s just a message that something needs to be explored and adjusted. Often that means changing the way you sit, stand, move, sleep, or train.

Also, you’ll be less likely to get injured as you increase awareness and start to explore yourself. You’ll move better, get stronger, and become more unbreakable as you listen to how your body feels in each posture, movement, and position.

It’s important to mention here that our society will try to convince you that everyone has chronic pain, and that it’s totally normal to feel broken from your mid twenties on. I challenge you to not accept that, because it’s simply not true.

3. Better workouts

 

Learn the difference between “good pain,” and “bad pain,” and you’ll know when to safely push yourself at the gym, and when to dial it down a notch.

What does it feel like when you body is craving rest, versus when it’s craving a workout? What does it feel like for your glutes to be firing and functioning properly in a squat, versus your low back or hip flexors to be doing most of the work?

Tuning into your body gives you better information to work with, which leads to better overall durability, as well as stronger muscle contractions. This means better, faster, and safer results at the gym.

4. Better health

Your body tells you when you need to slow down and relax, often in form of subtle signals like tiredness and flareups of old chronic issues. If you ignore those messages, it’ll send louder messages in the form of sickness, injury, panic attacks, or mysterious and seemingly random physical symptoms. By paying attention to your body’s messages, you can avoid a lot of those health issues by catching them early and figuring out what you need, to re-balance and bring yourself back up to 100%. That can mean anything from getting more sleep, prioritizing alone time or intimate bonding, remembering how to truly unwind, or practicing more self-care.

Beyond avoiding sickness though, learning how to tune into your body will also give you the information you need to elevate your day-to-day health from “I feel fine” to “I feel amazing.”

5. More pleasure

 

One of the side effects of habitually suppressing the body’s uncomfortable messages is that you also automatically suppress a lot of the pleasurable messages! Learning how to tune back into pleasure will helps you identify and pursue more of what feels good for you, bringing more immediate joy and gratification into your life! This applies to movement, sex, friendship, hobbies, and pretty much everything else.

Plus, the brain will strengthen any neural pathways you make it travel down frequently. That means the more you practice tuning into your pleasure messages, the louder and stronger those messages get. (Read: you will be able to experience more intense pleasure.)

6. Sharpen your emotional intelligence

Emotions are physical. They show up in our bodies, so habitually tuning out your body’s signals means you also tune out your emotions! That makes for some seriously confusing adulting. (What do I want to do with my life? Who do I want to date? WHO AM I?!)

Don’t put your brain in charge of shit it’s not qualified to do. It’ll do the best it can, but being in touch with your emotional landscape is crucial if you want to be able to make informed decisions that help you build a rich, fulfilling, authentic, and joyful life.

Start thinking about your emotions. Where in your body do you feel sadness? How about anger? Joy? What does each emotion feel like? Is is cold, warm, soft, or hard? Does it have a color or texture? Is it tight and small, or big and open? Does it move around or sit very still? Get to know your emotions as physical experiences, and then start noticing when they show up.

This will offer you some CIA level intelligence when it comes to what you need and what’s going on for you. Maybe your brain doesn’t know you’re mad yet, but the cold tightening feeling in your belly when you see your partner says otherwise.  Access to this data will truly transform your life.

7. Stronger intuition

 

Much like emotions, your intuition happens physically; that’s why we call it a “gut feeling.” Learning exactly what your intuition feels like will allow you to identify and trust it quickly and effectively. If something feels “off” to you about a person or situation, but you’re not in tune with your body’s signals, you may be confused and believe you simply have indigestion. By taking an antacid to suppress the discomfort, you might miss the opportunity to quickly get yourself quickly out of a bad situation.
8. Increase your autonomy

The brain will strengthen whatever neural pathways you frequently use, meaning the more you listen to your body’s messages, the louder those messages become. You want those messages to be loud AF, because that means you never again need to listen to anyone else who thinks they know best what you want or need. The latest diet trend can’t screw with your head if you’re filtering everything through your body’s messages. Neither Dr. Oz nor fear-mongering fitness magazines can mislead you, if you’re listening to and trusting your body. If some celebrity starts an “only eat blue foods” trend for example, you won’t have to blindly fall prey. You can simply use your body’s data to inform you. Do you feel good when you eat red, brown, yellow, and green food? Yes? Great, then this diet trend probably isn’t for you.

9. More self-trust

 

The louder your body’s messages get, the better of a job you can do exploring and addressing whatever it is that needs to be explored and addressed. With practice, you’ll very likely feel more energized, empowered, stronger, happier, hotter, and healthier. With all of those things comes trust in yourself. This is huge, because self-trust is the enemy of anxiety and insecurity. Doing the work to listen to your body’s messages allows you to feel safe, peaceful, healthy, vibrant, joyful, and deeply fulfilled. Knowing that you did that work lets you relax into yourself, trusting that you and your body are always on the same team, and that the answers are always inside you.

3 Unconventional Kettlebell Core Exercises

The fitness industry is constantly evolving. New tools and training methods pop up at your neighborhood gym, on TV, and in magazines on a regular basis. Are they always new, though? You’d be surprised!

Many of these tools are touted as the latest-and-greatest, guaranteed to get you better and faster results than anything you’ve tried before. Their popularity is often short-lived, and they eventually fade away. There are some tools, however, that have been around for centuries. Their popularity may rise and fall as some temporary fads enjoy their moment in the spotlight. But these tools are timeless, and much like certain fashions, they never go out of style.

The kettlebell is an example of one of those timeless tools. It has been around forever, and started gaining popularity again about 15 years ago. When I first got acquainted with kettlebells in 2004, like many people, I thought it was some newfad!

The problem that arises with a new tool, or one that resurfaces, is that suddenly everyone wants to jump on the bandwagon. In the kettlebell community, while it’s exciting that so many people are eager to use these tools, we often see workout enthusiasts as well as trainers executing traditional exercises with poor technique or inventing new (and often questionable) exercises without taking the time to attend a certification or learn from someone who has. The situation is ripe for an accident or injury.

As kettlebells become more widely available in mainstream fitness, it can get quite overwhelming for beginners trying to wade through all the information out there: videos and articles available online, workouts from celebrity trainers on TV and in magazines. It’s hard for a someone who is new to kettlebells to discern between proper and unsafe technique, and to know if what they’re looking at is a properly executed traditional kettlebell exercise, or if not traditional, at the very least a safe movement.

Surprisingly, the kettlebell is still considered a fad by some, but any amount of time invested in understanding and studying its proper use makes it crystal clear just how efficient even the basic exercises are. After running a gym where I taught 25-30 semi-private training classes each week for over six years, I learned that it takes time for some people—even after experiencing tremendous strength gains and fat loss—to believe this training modality can deliver all they need. They often think they need more. “It can’t be that simple!”

To address this, as a business owner and coach you learn to start with a little of what your clients want and a lot of what they need. Case in point: so many people think they must “feel the burn” or they didn’t work their abs.  The question I heard most often at the end of a training session was, “Can we do some abs now?” As a coach, I’m thinking, “You do realize that all our kettlebell training works your abs, right?” But as a business owner I understand that this is the ‘a little of what they want’ part.

If the “burn” is what you are after, the following exercises are right up your alley.

3 Unconventional Kettlebell Core Exercises

Disclaimer: The following three exercises are not considered traditional kettlebell exercises, and are not taught at StrongFirst kettlebell certifications. These exercises just happen to be done most effectively with a kettlebell than with another training tool.

Scroll down to see step-by step instructions for the exercises in this video.

Alternating Knee Tuck:

  1. Begin Supine (laying on your back).
  2. Bell should be sitting on the ground above your head.
  3. Extend your legs and lift them a few inches off the ground.
  4. Grip the kettlebell handle with both hands.
  5. Keep your low back in contact with the floor.
  6. Simultaneously pull the bell over your head and one knee toward your chest.
  7. Fully extend your arms and leg to the starting position.
  8. Repeat the move alternating legs with each repetition.

Half-Kneeling Wood Chop:

  1. Begin with your right knee in a half-kneeling stance.
  2. Place the kettlebell in the rack position on the left side of your body.
  3. “Throw” the bell across and down toward your right hip.
  4. Stay tall and don’t allow the hip to hinge during the movement.
  5. Match the breathing, inhaling on the throw and exhaling on the return.

Standing Cross Crunch:

  1. Stand with your feet shoulder-width apart.
  2. Hinge and pick up the bell safely by the horns.
  3. Simultaneously pull your right elbow and your left knee together.
  4. Inhale while standing and exhale as you cross your body’s midline and connect the elbow and knee.
  5. Repeat the move for desired reps and switch sides, or alternate sides with each rep.

While I whole-heartedly believe in the effectiveness of the basic kettlebell skills that we teach at our certifications and pride myself in teaching quality movement overquantity, I also understand that some people draw enjoyment and motivation from a little more variety in their training.

If you’re learning kettlebell skills from a trainer, I urge you to verify that he or she is certified to teach them. The fact that someone has a general personal training certification, is published in a popular fitness magazine, or is representing a large, well-known fitness or sports organization, doesn’t automatically guarantee that this person is an authority on all training modalities.

If you want to use a tool that is new to you, remember that quality movement and proper technique are important to help you attain your goals efficiently and keep you injury-free.

Cardio Kickboxing with the eyes of an newbie

I am exercising for too long now. Morning hours awakening, cup of freshly brewed coffee, gym bag with the necessities and quick ride to my local gym are getting to be a regular. There’s even a gaggle of regulars that we meet on the day after day, there is however little time and energy to chat. I’ve a routine i have followed for the past 23 years – chest, arms and legs, one group of muscles per day, six days each week – and contains always served me well. Just what exactly developed a gym rat like myself embrace the alteration?
Whilst I continued to work out, probably included in the change in my fat burning capacity as a result of process of aging, I became not able to shed a few of my more weight. Dieting may fit for many people, however have always relied on workout routine to hold my weight down – and now it begun to fail me. By a stroke of luck I came across my old time friend at a party, and that he looked great. Sexy body, low-fat, a lot of energy and positive happy vibe were surprising changes he manifested, plus it was simply natural i asked what was going on. He informed me about it Cherry Hill kickboxing workout at UFC Gym nearby that he attended three times weekly, and the husband just can’t stop speaking about it. Mindful of the newest fitness paradigm shifting to Intense Interval Training (HIIT) routines, I decided to give it a go. Can do for you happened.
Following a painless register, I joined a group of about twenty people with the age between mid 20th and late 30th. There was clearly an excellent men to women ratio inside the group, though it had been so early each day. The fitness center looked minimalistic with rows of tightly hung punching bags, some space for running around them, plus a boxing ring aside in the main floor. We started by permitting to the gear which contained basic gym clothes and boxing gloves. Then the trainer, a tiny, wiry and energetic man in late 20th told us to run around within a circle for initial heat up. When the rope kept mixing in several calisthenic activities, like jumping that made and comfortable up more interesting. Often times I needed to slow or rest, that was very much acceptable in our group, regardless of the pressure to carry on the task out.

How To Use Rest Pause Sets In Your Workouts For Big Gains

Rest-pause sets are one of the best intensity techniques out there. If properly implemented, they will allow you to push your muscles well beyond traditional muscular failure. Adding merely one set alone will give you immediate transient muscular hypertrophy along with skin splitting muscle pumps. There are countless benefits to this training technique. There are also just as many ways to merge them into your current exercise routine. However, before I jump into all of that, let me first explain to you exactly what rest-pause sets are.

 

So, what are rest-pause sets anyway?

Rest-pause sets are performed by simply going to muscular failure for a given number of repetitions, resting for 10-15 seconds, then lifting the same weight to failure once more, resting for another 10-15 seconds, and repeating the cycle for the desired number of sets.

This fast paced high intensity training technique is one of the best out there to help you pack on size quickly. With such short rest periods, you keep your pump much more easily and build upon it tenfold with each repetition. In addition to the decreased rest periods, taking each individual set to maximum muscular failure makes this training technique stand on its own with regards to sheer intensity and effectiveness.

Rest-pause sets can be done many ways and you can easily alter it to your liking. However, I have found that keeping a weight that allows you to max out on 12 reps is best. Using the same weight with each set, you should average about -2 reps per extra rest-pause set you do.

 

How can I add rest-pause sets to my workout?

You should use rest-pause sets in the same way as you would use drop set training techniques. Meaning that you would use them on the last working set of an exercise. Be that as it may, if you are new to rest-pause sets then you should gradually invite them into your training regimen. I would say to just throw in a handful of sets into each workout first.


Workout #1
An example beginner rest-pause set (RPS) workout for shoulders may look something like this:

  • Shoulder press machine 10-12 reps 3-4 sets (2 RPS)
  • Standing dumbbell lateral raises 10-12 reps 3-4 sets (2 RPS)
  • Bent-over dumbbell lateral raises 10-12 reps 3-4 sets (2 RPS)

Remember, to get the most bang for your buck, each rest-pause set should be done to absolute muscular failure with about 10 seconds of rest between each one.

For experienced gym goers, I would recommend a much more intense variation of the previous routine as follows:

Workout #2

  • Wide-grip barbell upright rows 8-10 reps 4 sets (5 RPS)
  • Seated dumbbell lateral raises 10-12 reps 4 sets (4 RPS)
  • Posterior delt machine 10-12 reps 4 sets (3 RPS)
  • Shoulder front press machine 8-10 reps 4 sets (2 RPS)
  • Close-grip barbell upright rows 8-10 reps w/5 RPS*

*No working sets on the last exercise. Only 5 all out rest-pause sets starting with 8-10 reps.

For workout #2, a descending rest-pause set strategy is great for allowing your body to stay intense, as you will naturally weaken after each exercise. Wide-grip barbell upright rows are a fantastic starter exercise for the shoulders. This is due to using the wider grip variation. Doing so will activate all three heads of the shoulders, thus adequately preparing the deltoids for the intense workout ahead.

The last exercise is meant to fully exhaust the shoulders to finish them off. It consists of five all out rest-pause sets. You will probably surprise yourself of how light the weights are that you’ll be using once you get to this point of the workout.

5 Benefits of training with Rest-Pause sets

  1. Overloading: The use of rest-pause sets will overload your muscle tissue far beyond traditional muscular failure. Thus, leading to an increase in muscular mass.
  2. Breaking Plateaus: The body adapts to weight training relatively easily. Implementing a new and highly intense training technique such as this will undoubtedly promote muscle growth.
  3. Insane Muscle Pumps: Using rest-pause sets will intensely give you crazy muscle pumps and fatigue your muscle cells insurmountably. This is due to the short rest periods and multiple failure sets that this technique is known for.
  4. Variety: In the gym, keeping things fresh is always encouraged. Going through the same typical workout day after day can be beyond monotonous. Rest-pause sets can keep things interesting again as they need fast paced and highly intense efforts.
  5. Versatility: You can easily add this technique to your current training routine. Just simply add a few of them after your last working set.

Are rest-pause sets effective for all exercises?

Yes and no.

I say this because it depends on how you do them. As most people know, it isn’t very safe to go to complete muscular failure while performing heavy squats or lunges. I can’t imagine anyone actually going through four working sets of heavy squats, taking the fourth set to failure, then performing four more rest-pause sets to failure. That would obviously be an overkill and be potentially dangerous.

 

The potential danger of using rest-pause sets with big movements like squats is also because as our bodies fatigue, our form begins to become sloppy. Thus, leaving room for injuring something.

So, if you wanted to use rest-pause sets with exercises like squats, deadlifts, or leg presses, it would be wise to use them with about 85% of your one-rep-max instead of to 100% all out failure.

In Conclusion, here’s the verdict on Rest-Pause sets

As you can see, rest-pause sets are an incredible training technique that helps countless people blast through plateaus, achieve swelling muscle pumps, and pack on plenty of muscle mass. If performed properly, they can help you to take your physique to the next level and allow you to reap a glorious harvest of increased muscle mass.

5 Awesome Workouts To End Tredmill Boredom

Whether it’s Mother Nature, travel, a hectic schedule, or just plain old road weariness that’s preventing you from running outside, turning to the treadmill can keep fitness levels up when we’re being kept inside. With fun workouts that add a little variety to your routine, it’s dreadmill no more!

While studies suggest exercising outdoors might make us happier, more energetic, and less anxious, there are some perks to sweating it out inside the gym . Besides the convenience of seeing time and pace (and calories melt away), treadmill running is actually easier than running outside. But who are we kidding? Anyone who has spent some quality time on the ‘mill knows running in place can be a total drag.

Beat the Boredom—Your Action Plan

We’re giving the treadmill another go in the hopes that we’ll have as much fun on there as these guys. Stay in shape through unforgiving weather and untraversable terrian and whatever else is preventing you from hitting the road with these totally not boring treadmill workouts that should make that time on the belt fly by.

1. Go high-low. According to most experts, interval training is the treadmill’s BFF. It gets the heart rate up and burns the max amount of calories with periods of high and low intensity. Check out Derek’s ass-kicking interval workout along with these Greatist-approved interval ideas. And for a longer training run, we like this distance run recommended by Runner’s World. Intervals can be tough, but there’s always a break just around the “bend” in the “road.” Remember to adjust them to your own pace; a sprint, run, or jog speed is not the same for everyone.

2. Head for the hills. What’s the best way to pretend you’re out on the trails instead of stuck indoors? Kick up the incline a few notches! But because there are no elements to combat inside (other than the super sweaty dude on the next machine), you can set the treadmill to simulate uneven outdoor terrain and make up for the lack of wind . For even more incline, the hills are alive with this challenging “Six/Sevens” workout. Just ignore strange looks from other gym-goers as the treadmill lifts and lowers. We are the first to admit, “fun” is a relative term for these killer hills.

3. Be a multitasker. Not sure whether to do cardio before or after strength training? We say, why not during! Add variety to your treadmill workout with a couple 2- or 5-lb. dumbbells to practice bicep curls, shoulder presses, and other upper body exercises while walking. Or hop on and hop off as you log the miles. Alternate 5 to 10 minutes of running with strength training exercises like squats, push-ups, crunches, planks, and lunges. Just be sure to slow down the speed of the belt during transitions unless this looks like fun!

4. Play your cards right. Pick a card, any card for this great treadmill game. Take four index cards and write the words “run,” “run fast,” “jog,” or “walk” on each of them. Shuffle ‘em up while you warm up for about a mile. Then, draw a card and do whatever it says for 3 to 4 minutes until you’ve gone through all four. Repeat until nice and sweaty. Get even more creative by adding new cards with specific speeds, inclines, or punishments and rewards like “drop and give me 20!” or “time for a water break!”

5. Use digital distractions. Rely on an awesome iPod playlist or fancy treadmill TV to fight boredom? Studies show music and television are excellent distraction devices, so why not use entertainment to our advantage ? Make an interval-style playlist with a mix of high-tempo and low-tempo songs and change speeds accordingly. Did you know television commercials are tailor-made for workouts? Over the course of a half-hour show, run hard while the program is on and recover during commercials (or vice versa). Bonus points if you can make it through an entire episode of Real Housewives without wanting to change the channel.

Still hating on the treadmill after these new ideas? Just remember, grinding it out on the ‘mill can help us appreciate the road even more once the weather breaks. And think about all the extra laundry we’ll save by not bundling up in layers for cold winter runs!

The World’s Hardest Workouts: David Beckham’s Cardio Gauntlet

While he’s still a global icon, it wasn’t that long ago that David Beckham was widely considered one as one of the best soccer players in the world. I alway respected Beckham, but it wasn’t until I interviewed him in 2008 and tried his cardio workout that I realized what it takes to be a professional soccer player.

This cardio workout (most of which are sprints) left me needing about 24 hours of sleep and 72 hours of recovery. And if you’re looking for an abs workout, sprints are the secret weapon of all athletes. Don’t be deceived by the lack of crunches. This will burn fat as well as any high intensity interval training workout.

Before you begin, determine your maximum heart rate using the equation: 220-your age. The percentages below refer to maximum heart rate (max HR).

Each sequence is it’s own workout. Either try at the end of your weight training session or as a standalone workout. Whatever you do, do not underestimate the degree of difficulty.

My personal favorite: Challenge #3. Good luck with that.

Beckham’s training challenge 1: 5-minute run at 80% of your max HR. Rest 4 minutes. Repeat for 5 sets.

Beckham’s training challenge 2: 2-minute intervals running at 95% of your max heart rate. Rest 1-minute between sets. Repeat for 8 sets

Beckham’s training challenge 3: Run a 20-second sprint as fast as you can. (Think running for your life.) Rest 1-minute. Repeat 30 times. (Yes, 30 times.)

Beckham’s training challenge 4: Run 60 yards and return back 60 (120 yards total). Complete each set within 20 seconds. Rest 100 seconds and complete for 10 sets.

Beckham’s training challenge 5: Sprint 60 yards. Rest 10 seconds. Repeat for 8 sets.
