This healthy option is a great alternative to running through the drive-thru when you know it’s waiting for you at home.

skinny fat person pinching fat

Losing weight can be difficult for a lot of people, but what if you don’t want to lose any more weight because you already feel skinny. Instead you want to lose belly fat without losing weight because you’re already at a decent weight and if you lose any more you may look like a bean pole.

I call this the “skinny fat” dilemma. You are scared to lose any more weight because your arms and legs are already thin, but your stomach sticks out like you’re pregnant. Having extra chub on your belly can be really embarrassing, especially if you want to impress someone but you’re scared they will see what is hiding behind the shirt.

I know you have tried various diet and exercise programs and you may be scared if you lose weight, you may lose your lean, toned muscle which you have worked hard for. This can really be a tough situation to be in. Continue Reading…

Jorden Bench men's ab workout

If you’re a guy who is looking to get cut and lose the extra belly fat, I have 5 of the best exercises to lose belly fat for men. These are my go-to exercises I use when I’m looking to get shredded. These exercises incorporate cardio, control, strength and stamina.

One of the biggest problems I see people do when performing ab exercises is they go way too fast and lose proper form. Ab exercises should be slow and controlled to where you can feel each muscle being worked and utilized. This is part of the mind-body connection. The more “in-tune” you are with your body, the more you will get out of your workout.  I always ask myself during every exercise, “can I feel the specific muscle being worked?”  An example of wrong form would be going too fast when doing bicycle kicks. This exercises needs to be slow, focused and controlled. If you go at a quick rate you will lose the “mind-body connection” and you won’t benefit from the workout like you should have.

healthy chocolate smoothie dairy free

Whether you’re vegetarian, have a dairy intolerance, or just eating more protein, this is a healthy chocolate smoothie you’ll want to try. I used almond milk instead of cow’s milk, and my favorite plant protein powder by Life’s Basic instead of whey protein.  I’ve tried many chalky, bland plant-based proteins, but this one is great! Of course you can use a chocolate whey protein powder if you don’t have a problem digesting dairy products.

cartoon women bodybuilderAre you guilty of it?

Have you ever noticed that almost all women that go to the gym head straight for a treadmill, elliptical or aerobics class? Seriously, pay attention next time and watch for yourself. Why do you think this is? And are you guilty of it as well?  I’ve personally watched this for many years because most times I’m the only girl in the free weight room. Is it because of intimidation? Maybe. Self-conscious? It’s possible. But what if I told you it’s because for years you’ve been fed false information and had this misconception that weights were the enemy. That if you did strength training you’d develop a “manly” look. There are numerous other strength training myths for women out there, but below I’m giving you my top 3 that I feel definitely needs to be debunked. Continue Reading…
