Xtreme Core Training With Corinne

Tonight Corinne (17) came to the Iron Core Bootcamp Workout and demonstrated some very difficult core exercises using medicine balls and stability balls. Corinne is a former personal training and fitness bootcamp client of Dempsey's Resolution Fitness. She has since continued her training on her own by doing P90X and using the Paleo diet. I'm proud of her! She did an awesome job! Check out her videos.

Don't Fear Red Meat

People have been told for decades now to stay away from red meat. Red meat has been given a bad name and associated with coronary heart disease, high cholesterol and more. But the reality is that red meat has been eaten by mankind for thousands of years with no ill effects. It has not been until the 1900's to now that red meat has been the evil meat. The real issue with red meat is with the feed, hormones and anti-biotics that modern cattle farmers use with their animals.

Cows and cattle naturally eat grass like many animals - not corn or grains. And all the drugs and chemicals used on these animals with the unnatural feed sources cause a host of issues for the animals which ends up on your plate.

Does that mean avoid all red meat - hell no! It means that if you like red meat like I do, you have to be selective in what you buy. Look for bison meat or grass fed, hormone and anti-biotic free meat like the types pictured here in Publix.

Red meat should never be your sole source of protein anyway. But if you like to eat red meat occasionally, then pick the good kinds and enjoy. Keep your protein sources varied with many different types of meats, poultry and fish. Never eat too much of anything. Variety is necessary for long term nutrient intake and to keep you on track with your meal plan.

So don't fear red meat. Simply make better educated choices and enjoy.

Yesterday You Said Tomorrow

Hey, hope you are doing great. I wanted to talk about our goals, discipline and the human condition. 

We all have goals that we want to achieve. Some people are super aggressive and kill their goals right off, some take longer to get to their goals but they eventually make it and some start the journey and never make it repeatedly. There are probably more versions but those are the big 3. 
Which one are you?

This correlates directly with your fitness / nutrition success and failure. You don't have to be in a category or stay in a category. You can change. You can do more, do better, get better, be better at most things. 

If you want it bad enough, you will figure out a way. Or if not, you'll find an excuse. 

Yesterday you said tomorrow ! Today is when it happens. Take action. Dominate your life. 

There has been a surge in personal training lately so I've opened up 30 min sessions and buddy team & small group as well as one on one sessions to make more room and so it's more affordable for you. Limited spots. Let me know soon if this is what you need.

P.S. I have 4 ultimate body applicator wraps left. Katherine lost 3 inches, I lost 4.25, Allie lost 9, Amanda lost 4. They have been going fast. Get yours before they are gone.

Rotate Your Sources Of Good Fats For Health And Variety

Make sure that you keep up on your intake of good fats and rotate your fat sources. No fat / low fat = stay fat or get fatter. You need a variety of good fat sources so that you have a good ratio of omega 3 to omega 6 to omega 9 fatty acids. Too much of any one thing is not good. Americans get too much omega 6 and that kills you. Rotate it for health and variety. Up to 30% of each meal and your total daily calories should come from good fats. Keep things new and tasty.
