Workout of the Week: Lovin’ Lunges

Monday January 15, 2018

Learn to love lunges! (Say THAT 5x fast)

It’s leg day at Fit Body Boot Camp, where we do things a little differently. Today we want to show a little love to lunges.

Lunges might not always feel great, but they’re perfect for adding on leg muscle. This workout is an 11 rep round, so you’ll also mix in some plyometrics to really get in that leg burn.

You’ll do the lunges 10 times and the plyometrics 1 time. Every round you’ll decrease the number of lunges you do and increase the number of plyometrics reps you do.

Let’s lunge into it!

The Most Common Weight Loss Misconceptions

Thursday January 04, 2018

Everyone’s got that friend…

That one person that claims they discovered the “secret” to weight loss, muscle building, what-have-you. An example: they read something online about proteins, concocted their own protein shakes, and swear by its magical powers.

Maybe you’ve even heard those commercials that promise you can eat what you want and still lose weight…

Your health is not a one-fix situation. You have to put in the time to do the research to find the workout plan and diet that work for you.

The Internet is full of countless misconceptions about fitness. However, if you can discern fact from fiction, your chances for success (and that sweet new bod) go through the roof!

Here are a few of the most common misconceptions about fitness to look out for.

 

“I need to hit the machines to gain muscle…”

That’s actually incorrect.

A lot of fitness machines challenge your muscles in unnatural (and unhealthy) ways. But you don’t want to just look good when you work out…you want to feel good when you leave the gym!

It’s better to do exercises that use your body weight instead. Try buying some resistance bands—you can stand on them and do curls. Or, pump out some old fashioned push-ups, sit-ups, crunches, and burpees, especially if you don’t have access to a gym near you.

“Running is the best way to lose weight…”

Running is one way to lose weight. It’s not always the best.

For some people, long-distance cardio is their thing. For most people, running on a consistent basis is a struggle (and a big mental hurdle). Plus, your legs can wear down over time, which of course is not good…

Good news: You actually burn more calories when you work harder for a shorter period of time.

It’s called high-intensity interval training (HIIT), and it’s what Fit Body Boot Camp specializes in. You push your body for 30-minutes and leave feeling like a champ (and still burning calories!)

Oh, and don’t worry about missing any cardio. HIIT workouts elevate your heart rate, so you’ll still keep that heart of yours healthy and functioning.

 

“Calorie counting is my ticket to weight loss…”

Not necessarily…

Calories only tell part of the story. You want to keep a closer eye on your macros

Keep this ratio in mind: 30/30/40.

What does that mean? Your diet should consist of 30% carbs / 30% fats / 40% proteins. You can go even deeper, too. For instance, you’ll want to stay away from trans fats and bad carbs. Stick with those good carbs and unsaturated fats!

This also means that you don’t need to starve yourself to get fit. That’s an unsafe way to cut weight, and you’ll eventually gain it all back again.

It’s all about the quality of the calories you consume. If you eat healthy foods, you’ll get in shape, even if you eat a few more calories than you’d like.

The Fat Loss App That Brings Boot Camp to You

Wednesday December 06, 2017

Take a look at your phone.

That little gadget is more powerful than you even know. It’s basically a telephone, a stereo, a computer, a pager, a notebook, and a game system, all wrapped into one handheld device.

Now what if we took that phone to the next level and turned it into your very own Fit Body Boot Camp studio? Well, good news: that’s exactly what we did!

Introducing the Ultimate Fat Loss Workout, presented by Fit Body Boot Camp, available in the iTunes Store this upcoming spring (2018)! 

Over the past year, Fit Body’s Web Team has rigorously tested, tuned, and perfected an app that compresses boot camp workouts into byte-sized pages you can access anywhere, anytime. We paired these workouts with an interactive cookbook and grocery lists that simplify nutrition down to a few button clicks.

Granted, this app is no replacement for the fat-melting, fun-loving workouts that you can only find at a Fit Body Boot Camp location. Still, this is the perfect way to try us out before you commit to an in-person session.

Let’s fly through a few of the awesome features this app has to offer!
