Weekly Challenge: Accountability Card Week 4

Week #4:  GOAL: Understanding Supplements!  Yes, that’s right!  Looking to consume something more than just exercise?  Be smart about your choices and learn about what may be right for you!

Monday Night:  Take Boot Camp and write down what’s on your playlists so we can create new music for class!

Tuesday:  How much Protein should you consume daily since you exercise?  It’s safe to say that if you’re an average exerciser, not an elite athlete, then general daily intake is 1 gram of protein per kilogram (kg) of body weight.  Finding your kg: take your body weight in pounds and divide by 2.2.  Take that number and multiple by one to find how many grams of protein to intake daily. Mmmm…fuel the muscles with Protein!

Wednesday:  Boot Camp – class #4 (be on time!) Let’s all welcome Kevin and give us your feedback! 

 Thursday: Whey Protein is waaay cool!  What is Whey Protein?  It’s one of Milk’s two proteins.  It digests easily and once in the body, it breaks down fast to fuel the muscles quickly!  Yum! Whey Protein contains peptides (protein fragments) so that helps muscles receive oxygen for workouts!  Yes, a bit of Whey 30 minutes before a workout may be just what you need?

 Friday:  We all need a bit of a “kick” by the end of the week!  Caffeine will do it!  Caffeine just doesn’t give you a wake up boost, it can help you burn fat if you supplement.  No joke!  Think natural: Green Tea Extract!  Boosts muscle strength, intensity and fat loss during workouts.  Green Tea boost your metabolic rate so go for it!                    

 Saturday:  Consider Fish!  Or a Fish Oil supplement.  Fish Oil contains 2 essential omega-3 fatty acids (your body doesn’t naturally produce omega-3)!  It has multiple benefits: reduces inflammation, reduces muscle and joint recovery, and reduces risk of heart disease, diabetes and cancers!  Additionally, it can turn on genes that stimulate fat burning and turn off genes that increase fat storage!        

 Sunday:  Rest and Recover!  Read up more about Supplements and seek our advice.  We’re here to support!
