Top 3 bodyweight exercises!

Here's an article from Craig Ballantyne of Turbulence Training.

Here are 3 kick-butt bodyweight exercises you can do anytime, anywhere to burn fat, stay energized, and avoid overeating.

Bodyweight exercises help you burn fat shockingly fast, without any fancy equipment.

1) Any Single-Leg Exercise
The pistol (single-leg squat to the floor) is the most advanced
1-leg exercise. But you can also do assisted single-leg squats with a band, or onto a bench, or even with a Stability Ball between your back and the wall.

If you aren't ready for single-leg squats, you can use Bulgarian
Split Squats, Reverse Lunges, regular split squats, or lying 1-leg
hip bridges if you are a beginner.

2) Decline Push-ups
These are harder than normal pushups, thanks to your elevated feet. And in this position, you can still use a close-grip to fatigue
your triceps, a "piked-hip position" to build your shoulders, or
even the Spiderman leg motion to work on your abs.

3) Bodyweight Inverted Rows
I choose these over chinups and pullups because bodyweight rows let your chest rest, while your back is strengthened. It's the perfect compliment to a pushup.

Do 8-12 repetitions per exercise. Don't rest between exercises. Go through the circuit up to 3 times, resting 1 minute after each

For a once-per-month challenge, do each exercise to failure in your final round through the circuit.

Are Mom's making there kids FAT!!!!

I was flipping through some tv channels yesterday during a quick lunch break and I happened to find a little segment on CNN headline news about why the obesity rate in kids is so high. Apparently it's tripled since the 80's.

Anyways, they were blaming the working mother. They said there was a direct correlation with kids obesity and mom's starting to enter the working world. Now, I slightly took somewhat of a similar stance but it wasn't blaming the working mom.

It was more blaming parents for knowing that what they are feeding there kids isn't healthy. Going for a quick meal at KFC is easier but there aren't any benefits to doing it.

We are in a generation where we tell kids that they'll be allowed to play video games if they eat their whole meal or just shut up for a while. Parents are looking for the simplist and easist way to control their kids. I'm not saying parenting is easy and I know that with working long hours you get tired and don't want to deal with hyper kids all the time.

I'm just saying to try and make the healthiest decisions possible, for everybody. The more healthier you are, the better you'll feel. The more energy you'll have. I go over the nutrition problems most families go through in my book, True Weight Loss Revealed.

You have to choose to make the change for the long term, though, or it just won't work.

Make a decision to change your habits. We are close halfway through 2007 already. How are your New Year's Revolutions going?????

Get Strong,

There's a pre and post workout recovery drink as well. Here's what a top fitness editor had to say about it.

“I tried your Varsity post-workout mix this morning and I was seriously blown away. It has a good flavor, no aftertaste, and ingredients that I can actually pronounce! The guys at Prograde really know what they're doing.”

- Sean Hyson, C.S.C.S., fitness editor of Men's Fitness magazine
