body check

Tips from a fitness trainer.  I tend to think fitness trainers probably have good advice since they have to produce results to get paid.  I've picked out a few with my comments in parentheses.
  1. Pushups are the best upper body workout designed (P90X would agree with this but add pullups)
  2. Diet is 85% of where results come from (given my prior posts this is no surprise)
  3. Sugars is not our friend & high fructose corn syrup is making people fat and sick (carbs bad)
  4. If I had one sport for a child to start with it would be gymnastics (could agree more, both kids are signed up)
  5. The fittest people I know keep active daily doing what they enjoy (I love this one.  Someone once told me that if you want to work out regularly and forever then it simply must be something you enjoy)
  6. The best performance enhancing thing I know of….is a cup of coffee (studies bear this out)
  7. Supplements were are waste of a lot of money for me (studies bear this out)
  8. To build muscle, throw away your Whey protein and eat more steak and eggs (carbs bad)
  9. The best way to lose weight for most is lower carbohydrate eating (carbs very bad)
  10. Meat and Fat are my friends (double time)
  11. Breakfast is not the most important meal of the day (thank goodness, I never eat breakfast)
  12. The eat low-fat advice was the biggest health disaster in the last 30 years (This!)
  13. Apple Cider Vinegar is the only medicine I take if I feel sick (no clue.  Will need to try it.)
  14. Bill Phillips was a marketing genius (He's the Fit-For-Life idiot)
