Supersets are a great way to keep your heart rate up during resistance training and will help you burn more calories.

So what exactly is a superset? It’s when you do a set of a different exercise immediately after (with no rest between sets) a set of another exercise. Supersets are usually comprised of two exercises, but it is possible to use three or more exercises in your superset.

Another great benefit from supersets is Read more on Supersets For Weight Loss…

How Intense Should Your Cardio Exercise Be For Weight Loss? Unfortunately the exact answer can be different for everyone.The higher your intensity, the more calories you are going to burn in a given duration.

One of the most common ways to gauge intensity is monitoring your heart rate. A widely accepted way to calculate your maximum heart rate (MHR) is to subtract your age from 220.

For example, a 30-year-old person would have a max heart rate of 190 bpm (beats per minute).

After figuring out your max heart rate, you would pick a percentage of that to be your target heart rate. For example, if the 30-year-old wanted to workout at 70% of his/her MHR, they would aim to get their heart rate to 133 bpm (190 x 70%).

The problem with using your heart rate to gauge intensity is that there are several things that can alter your heart rate, while resting and while exercising. Read more on How Intense Should Your Cardio Exercise Be For Weight Loss?…

I think it’s human nature to be self-conscious at times, especially in an environment like the gym. This is almost always 100% true for beginners.

It’s also one of the most common reasons why some people never even get started and completely avoid workout out all together. Don’t feel weird or feel like there’s something wrong with you if you feel like this. It’s completely normal and even I felt like this too.

The fact is that we all have to start somewhere. You should be Read more on Don’t Be Intimidated in the Gym…

I’m almost ashamed that I have to write this, but I’ve been getting a lot of questions regarding the best type of water you should be drinking.

You may be asking yourself, “well how many different types of damn water is there?” You’d be surprised how many companies are looking to  make a quick buck.

It’s easy to get caught up in the vitamin enhanced waters, life waters and any of the other stupid names these companies give these drinks. If you’re concerned about vitamins, take a regular daily multivitamin! It’s a lot cheaper than continuously buying these other products.

The answer to this question is simple: Read more on Which Type of Water is Best For Weight Loss?…

I get asked this question a lot. This is the simplest way I can answer it: In the short term, yes. In the long run, no.

There are a few very important things you should know about diet soda though that could cause more harm than good to you.

Does eating fat make you fat? Makes sense on paper right? So is this popular statement true? Well today, I’m going to defend fat — the most negatively talked about macronutrient.

Not all fats are created equal.

Over the past few decades, fat has been getting a bad reputation, particularly from the surgeon general, American Heart Association, etc.

They conducted several studies that concluded that a diet that is high in fat, lead to people gaining too much weight and becoming overweight and obese.

Therefore fat immediately became the culprit and you started seeing fads like low fat diets and such. The food industry quickly capitalized on this trend and started selling fat-free products in order to cash in on consumer’s fear of fat.

There are four types of fat:

  1. Trans Fat
  2. Saturated fat
  3. Monounsaturated fat
  4. Polyunsaturated fat

Before I go any further, I want to make it very clear that Read more on Eat Fat to Lose Fat?…
