Too many people like to think about putting their health and fitness on the priority list AFTER the holidays. I often think that the tradition of New Year’s Resolutions is an awful one, since it gives us an excuse to postpone getting healthy till after all the bad eating habits have run their course, and then make of what should be a marathon a sprint as people try to undo all the damage one over the Fall and Winter months in but a few weeks. So don’t be like everybody else: get in shape today!
Everybody is talking about P90X. From mom's in supermarket aisles to the local fitness trainers, from folks watching late night TV to the latest chatter on the internet as people discover ever more success stories. P90X is without a doubt the most successful at-home workout in the country, selling millions of copies and followed scrupulously by people everywhere. From celebrities like Demi Moore and Ashton Kutchner to quarterbacks and NBA players, P90X has become ubiquitous in our culture. Odds are you're ready to give it a shot, but if so, what do you need to maximize your gains and ensure you have the best returns possible?
Everybody wants to get fit at some time in their lives. Whether it’s an abiding passion from their teenage years or a sudden resolution upon turning fifty, people everywhere are susceptible to sudden violent desires to get fit. Some go to the gym, others take up running, while some decide to start an at-home workout such as Power 90 or P90X. If so, the question rapidly becomes: which is the right workout for you? Should you start slow and pace yourself, or go extreme straight away?
We’ve all be there, where for a few months you’re cruising along, working out right, making steady advances and losing weight. We’re finally getting on top of our nutrition plan, we’re gaining more energy and feeling great. And then something goes wrong. An injury, a weekend of fun, a vacation, a family tragedy, we lose our focus, we stop exercising, we enjoy a few tasty snacks, and before you know it two weeks have passed and we’re gaining weight once more and feeling low energy. How do you deal with this? How can you get back on track with your workout?
I'm sure you've heard people discussing cleanses by now. It's become a prevalent part of the culture for those who are interested in cleaning their systems and purging themselves of all the toxins and sludge that's built up in their intestinal tracts. The idea is simple: for a short number of days you adopt a specific diet that is light and wholesome and stop eating solid, heavy foods that put a strain on your system. The benefits are immediate: you feel lighter, cleaner, and often ready to kick off a serious diet.
