Here are the top training and nutrition tips from my www.turbulencetrainingfanpage.com Facebook posts this week. There are also a few motivational/reflection tips to think about at the end.
1) While you want your MRT workouts to be hard, remember this rule of training: "Each workout, exercise, set and rep should be done with purpose, for a purpose."
2) Take time today to clean out cupboards and prepare a healthy shopping list. Plan, shop, and prepare and do some massive shopping and cooking preparation for the week ahead. Plan two solutions for every nutrition obstacle that comes up each week....
3) TT Trainer Ray Ortiz on Canada's national morning program - demonstrating the Power Wheel - good times
4) This one goes out to all the ladies...over on the Shape.com website..."If you're dead-set on weights or have a strength training plan you've been following, bring a backup planor twofor each exercise in your workout to avoid getting slowed down by a line," says Craig Ballantyne, C.S.C.S., owner of TurbulenceTraining.com. "If your goal is to gain muscle and lose fat, then you really don't have to worry about the exact exercise, just the movement pattern," he says. http://www.shape.com/fitness/workouts/best-workouts-crowded-gym?page=2
5) "Fulfillment comes from a life of meaningful achievement and from being present in each moment while moving in the direction we most want to move. And ask yourself, Am I doing what I most need to be doing right now? Am I being who I most want to be right now?" Peter Bregman
6) "To get something you've never had, you have to do something you've never done." (I first heard this from the actor, Jeremy Piven. It's a classic quote.)
