Believe You Can Do It And You're Halfway There

Believe You Can Do It And You’re Halfway There

One of the biggest deterrents people face when they want to achieve any goal is lack of belief that they can do it. The power of belief is important, whether you’re developing a business, focusing on fitness or simply want to feel better. Belief in a doctor or medicine is half the cure and so is belief in yourself when you want to accomplish a goal. If you believe you can do it, you’re halfway there to conquering your goal.

Are you afraid to try?

One of the reasons people fail to believe in themselves is that they’re afraid of the results. Sometimes, they’re afraid they’ll fail again and failure certainly doesn’t feel good. If that’s you, think of Thomas Edison’s quotes, two of which are my favorites. “I have not failed. I’ve just found 10,000 ways that won’t work.” “Many of life’s failures are people who did not realize how close they were to success when they gave up.” The only failure is lack of trying. Don’t let fear get in your way.

You need to believe that change is good if it makes you healthier.

People often sabotage themselves or people they love if they think something will change the dynamics in their life. If you’re worried what will happen if you look and feel better, change your focus to having a higher energy level. Focus on what won’t scare you or face it with the knowledge that you actually control how you feel and looking better won’t change a thing except your energy and health. Find out what stops you from believing in yourself and address it.

The power of belief can help you achieve fitness or block you.

Everyone has a belief system that guides the through life. If you’re a mom, you may think that doing something for yourself is selfish and all your free time should be devoted to your family. If that’s part of your belief system, stop right there. YOU OWE IT TO YOUR FAMILY TO BE FIT AND HEALTHY. Staying fit means you have more energy and time to devote to them. It also means you’ll be a better role model.

  • Do you have family members that put you down when you tell them about your fitness program? Don’t tell them. Our apps let you change your eating habits and workout in the privacy of your home. Only you have to know.
  • Are you worried that you might injure yourself because you’re so out of shape? It’s one reason we create a workout that’s personalized. Take it easier when you start and you won’t suffer from sore muscles that make you quit.
  • Schedule your workout at the same time every day and make it an appointment. If you’re changing your eating habits, get rid of food that’s sabotaging your efforts and stock up on healthy snacks.
  • Become the role model for your children and family. If you’re the family cook, don’t tell everyone it’s healthy, just cook and serve healthy meals. Get the kids involved when you exercise and get them in the habit of moving more.

Exercises For Lower Back Pain

Exercises For Lower Back Pain

No matter where you live, Louisville, KY, or any other town or city, lower back pain can cause you to miss work and suffer from pain doing the simplest things. It’s hard to lift anything, move a few feet or do the simplest task. Even sleep alludes you when you suffer from this condition. Lower back pain can be caused by inactivity, prolonged sitting or simply turning the wrong way. Improving circulation in the area is imperative to recover. That’s why lower back pain exercises can help bring relief.

It’s easier to prevent back pain than to cure it.

If you’ve ever felt the pain from a back injury, you know how disabling it can be. If you’re prone to back pain, it’s better to start a regimen of back pain exercises before you have another problem, than to wait for it to arrive. Anyone with a sedentary job knows how stiff and achy the back can get. For those people, stretching frequently and moving at least five minutes of every hour is important. A standing extension stretch provides relief and a short break from sitting. Stand with feet at shoulders width, then put your hands at the top of the hips with the tips of the fingers in the small of the back. Lean backward, arching your back until you feel it stretch. Hold and return to starting position and then repeat several times.

If you feel your back pain begin, don’t head for the bed, head for the floor instead.

When lower back pain begins, stopping it as quickly as you can, is important. This quick exercise will help stretch the muscles and bring relief. You need a towel to do this. Lay on the floor holding a towel, one end in each hand. Put your feet flat on the floor, bending the knees. Create a loop with the towel and lift one leg, putting the sole of the foot in the loop. Gently pull the towel toward you, attempting to straighten your leg as you do, trying to make it perpendicular to your body. If you can’t, straighten it as much as you can. Lower your leg and do the other side.

Stay on your back on the floor for another exercise.

While you’re laying on your back, bring your knees straight up and put your hands above your head. Rock your knees from side to side to loosen your back and warm it up. Each time you rock, rock your legs a little further until you can lower your legs on each side without lifting your shoulders from the floor. Once you’ve touched your outer knee on the floor on one side, slowly go back to starting position and touch the outer knee of the other leg on the other side.

  • Muscle relaxers and pain medication used to be the treatment advised. The high increase in pain medication addiction and side effects have severely limited its use. Exercise not only brings relief, the only side effects are a healthier body.
  • Cat poses can relax your lower back. Get on your hands and knees. Arch your back like an angry cat with your head facing downward. Inhale, relax, exhale and drop your abdomen toward the floor as you lift your head, changing your body position from a convex curve to a concave one.
  • Simply pulling one knee at a time toward your chest can help bring relief. You keep the other leg extended as you do this stretch. Return to neutral position with both legs extended and do it on the other leg.
  • To avoid future problems, build stronger abdominal muscles and back muscles. When your abdominal muscles are strong, it helps remove the pressure from the back.

It's Time To Push Through The Plateau

It’s Time To Push Through The Plateau

One of the biggest problems with losing weight, especially if you’re working out on your own, is plateauing. The best way to deal with a plateau is to avoid it in the first place. You can push through the plateau if it occurs and knowing what caused it helps. Plateauing occurs when the body becomes efficient at making the moves of an exercise. It happens when you don’t vary your workout enough. As a trainer, I vary clients workouts enough so your body is always working at maximum.

Initially, losing weight is easier.

No matter what your workout program, the longer you do it, the harder it is to lose weight. Think about it. If you’ve lost weight, going from 170 pounds to 140 pounds, you’re carrying 30 fewer pounds around everywhere you go. Even if you’re burning more calories because you have more muscle tissue, your body still won’t be working as hard. It’s like carrying a 30 pound weight around for months and then putting it down. You simply won’t work as hard. Your body will require fewer calories. That’s one reason many people suggest your weight loss goal be a percentage of your body weight.

What if you’ve switched out your workout and doing everything right, but still are plateauing

No matter how hard you workout and how much you change your workout, if you’re not seeing progress, maybe there’s another problem or no real problem at all. The scales sometimes lie. That’s right. They may say that you aren’t making progress when you really are. Remember, muscle tissue weighs more per cubic inch than fat tissue does. It’s like comparing metal with feathers. The container holding a pound of feathers will definitely be bigger. If you haven’t lost weight, but find your clothing is now looser or way too big, you’ve lost inches! That’s also progress.

If your workout is varied and you’re not losing inches or weight, there’s another problem.

Sometimes, people forget all the food they eat throughout the day. Maybe it’s something as simple as grabbing a few M&Ms as you walk by the candy dish or you’re not counting what you drink. Soft drinks have calories, too. Even if you opt for diet soft drinks, while it doesn’t have an effect on your weight, studies show that people who drink them end up with more abdominal fat. Scrutinize your eating habits carefully and see if there are hidden calories you’re not counting.

  • Never give up. Each person is different. Not everyone’s body has the same time schedule for weight loss. Sometimes, there’s a difference based on when you weigh yourself. There are daily fluctuations in weight, too.
  • Don’t focus as much on how much you lose, but more in the joy of losing it. Feel how great it is to be able to move comfortably through the exercises and notice how your endurance, flexibility and strength has improved. Enjoy the moment and know the weight will come off if you keep it up.
  • Make sure you’re tracking yourself when you workout and tracking what you eat. Remember, portion control is also important. If you’re working out with a trainer, he or she probably will find out the cause with a few questions or modify your workout.
  • Keep active even if you’re not working out. Park further from the store and walk. Take the stairs. Ride your bike to the store or walk, rather than take a car if you’re close. You’ll save gas and get more exercise.

Build Muscles The Natural Way

Build Muscles The Natural Way

If you’ve ever been to Body Sculptors in Louisville, KY, you know we have an entire program to build muscles with exercise and a healthy diet. You may read ads about pills that help you bulk up or lose weight, but many of these supplements are either unhealthy, such as steroids, or basically useless for weight loss or building muscles unless you have nutritional deficiencies. The right type of training and diet can help you reach your goal, whether it’s changing fat to muscle or bulking up.

No matter what your goal, building muscles takes an exercise program.

There are no shortcuts to building muscles. However, working out for hours won’t do the trick either. Focusing on the intensity and the quality of the workout and how well it matches your fitness level and goals is what’s important. Your workout, especially if it’s intense, shouldn’t go over an hour. HIIT—high intensity interval training—varies the speed of the workout and circuit training limits the rest between exercises. Both are good for building muscles. You should focus on building strength, which is easy to use as a goal and far easier to measure.

Getting the most out of each workout is important.

Compound exercises, ones that work several muscle groups and joints, give you the most bang for your exercise time. Strength training is at the core of building muscle tissue. You need to vary your workout to ensure you’re building all muscle groups and improving strength on all planes. Bodyweight exercises are the easiest to use at home, since they require no equipment. Kettlebells, resistance bands and/or weights are also good for muscle building and should be part of your program. Rest a day or two between workouts to ensure you give your muscles a chance to heal. Training three times a week is enough. The exercises cause microtears in the muscle and the healing process is what makes them bigger.

The real magic occurs when you include a healthy, muscle building diet.

No matter how hard you workout, you’ll never lose weight without a healthy diet. You may build muscles, but nobody will be able to see them since they’ll be covered by a layer of fat. Eat more frequently if you’re naturally thin and everyone should have a schedule of five to six meals. Eat one to three hours before you workout and within an hour after finishing. Before you workout, it can be something as simple as a peanut butter and jelly sandwich or a handful of trail mix. If you don’t have an hour before working out, a banana is perfect. Afterward, a small meal with protein and carbs will do, such as a whole grain turkey wrap.

  • You can alternate your workout working upper body one day and lower body the next if you want to get more exercise time in without over-exercising.
  • Increase the number of reps you do every three to four weeks and vary your workout to avoid plateauing.
  • Get adequate sleep at night. Not only do your muscles need that sleep to heal, you’ll also find your workout more productive when you’re well rested.
  • Make sure you hydrate frequently, especially if your workout is tough. Before you exercises, drink 16 ounces of water. As you exercise, keep a cup of water on hand and sip every 20 minutes or as you get thirsty. Follow up your exercise with another 16 ounces of water.

Why Adding Exercise Boosts Your Weight Loss

Why Adding Exercise Boosts Your Weight Loss

You can’t beat a healthy diet if you want to lose weight. In fact, no matter how much you exercise, you won’t shed a pound if you’re eating a lot of high calorie junk food. However, exercise boosts your weight loss. Weight loss isn’t magic. It’s all about math. If you eat 3500 fewer calories than you expend, you lose one pound. While exercise burns a lot of calories, you’d have to workout for over two hours to burn off a Big Mac meal. To work off the calories in a white chocolate crème Frappuccino from Starbucks, you’ll have to go at high intensity for 50 minutes. You can see that, while exercise helps, eating healthy is top priority.

When you exercise, you’ll give your metabolism a boost.

While diet is important, you really need exercise to help take off weight and keep it off. When you use diet alone, the weight you lose isn’t always just fat. You can lose lean muscle tissue, too. Exercise not only helps burn calories but also builds muscle tissue. The more muscle tissue you have, the higher your metabolism is. That’s because muscle tissue also requires more energy for maintenance than fat tissue does. It means you’ll be burning more calories 24/7 and have more energy to be more active and burn extra calories, too.

Stress can mean belly fat.

That’s right! The hormones of stress, cortisol in particular, are associated with abdominal fat. When you workout, you’re burning off the stress hormones that cause the fight or flight response. It does more than that. It helps you relax, boosts your overall mood and makes you feel good. It can eliminate the need for stress eating and comfort food. Comfort food often includes high calorie things like ice cream, while stress eating may include crunchy food like potato chips. You can see that eliminating those can be a huge benefit.

Why do you want to lose weight? You want to look thinner, of course.

Sometimes, the scales aren’t the ultimate answer when you’re measuring your success. Sometimes, it’s inches, rather than weight. Exercise builds muscle tissue. Muscle tissue weighs more per cubic inch than fat tissue does. A container holding a pound of fat would have to be bigger than one containing a pound of muscle tissue. It’s lie comparing a container to hold a pound of steel to a pound of feathers. When you exercise, even if you don’t lose one ounce, you’ll still be thinner as your body builds muscle tissue. That’s the ultimate goal, isn’t it?

  • What’s the best type of exercise? While aerobic exercise burns loads of calories, but those calories come from both fat and muscle tissue. Strength training also burns calories, while also building muscle tissue that boosts your metabolism.
  • The body has two hormones that control appetite, ghrelin—the hunger hormone and leptin—the one that makes you feel full. Exercise reduces the amount of ghrelin the body makes.
  • The longer you do your workout routine, the more efficient the body becomes and the fewer calories it burns. That’s why varying your workout regularly can help prevent plateauing.
  • Exercise increases your energy level, so you’ll be more active even when you’re not working out in the gym. That means you’ll burn more calories even when you’re not trying.

Focus On What You Can, Not What You Can't

Focus On What You Can, Not What You Can’t

I have people come into the gym and see other clients doing push-ups and lifting weights. They shake their heads and almost quit on the spot. That’s when I give them my standard advice, “Focus on what you can, not what you can’t.” Sure, maybe you can’t do a regular push-up, but you probably can do a modified one on bent knee. Maybe you can’t do a workout with a ten pound kettlebell, but you can do one with a five pound one.

That’s why a personal trainer is important.

Trainers first assess your overall fitness and learn any special needs, plus your goals. Only then does the trainer create a workout program designed specifically to push you to the limit of what you can do. Before too long, that workout will become easy, which means fitness level improved and another “can’t do” became a “can do.” The longer you workout, the more you’ll see improvement and those worries about not being able to workout as hard will disappear.

If you have physical limitations, there’s still a lot that you can do.

I work with people who are recovering from an illness or serious condition and even people with physical limitations, such as bad knees or back problems. For those people recovering, as long as the doctor gave the okay for an exercise program, I start them off slowly, until they build their strength. If you have physical limitations, I modify the workout so it doesn’t exacerbate the condition. In fact, many of the exercises actually help relieve painful conditions.

Maybe you can’t lose fifty pounds in a month, but you can lose eight to ten.

If you have a lot of weight to lose, don’t get discouraged. Break it down to smaller weight loss goals. Losing fifty pounds in a month isn’t possible to do in a healthy manner. Don’t give up because you have a long way to go. Instead, break it down and work on a goal that’s quicker to achieve. It helps boost your motivation, by giving you success more quickly.

  • The older you are, the slower you’ll see the changes. Men in their sixties won’t build muscle tissue as fast as those in their twenties. That doesn’t mean it’s impossible to get more muscular. It means it will take longer.
  • There was a man destined to die because his obesity caused so many problems. He could barely walk a few steps. Every day he took those few steps and soon they became a few more. It took a while, but today, he’s lost hundreds of pounds and is a marathon runner by simply focusing on what he could do.
  • If you can’t give up all the food you love to save calories, start by just giving up one of your favorites. Small changes add up to bigger changes down the road.
  • At Body Sculptors, we have programs that focus on you and what you can do. As you achieve them and get to the next level, we’ll change the program to match your new ability.

Is Your Diet As Important As Your Fitness

Is Your Diet As Important As Your Fitness

Can you be your healthiest if you have only a healthy diet, but no fitness program of regular exercise? The answer is no. The same is true if you workout regularly, but fill your body with junk food. You need both a healthy diet and a program of regular exercise to look and feel your best. There’s a saying that you can’t out-exercise a bad diet. That’s true whether you’re trying to lose weight or just get healthy. You need the proper nutrition and controlled caloric intake that a healthy diet provides.

Eating healthy means making smarter choices.

Eating healthy isn’t really dieting. Once you learn how to make smarter choices, there’s no calorie or carb counting. There’s no magical food and you can still eat your favorite foods, just not as frequently and with portion control in mind. No matter how hard you’re working out, if you stop at the pizza or burger shack afterward for a burger, fries or pizza and a beer or shake, you’ll still gain weight! You’d have to workout for hours to burn all the calories in that meal.

Eating healthy provides all the nutrients you need to build the body you want.

If you want to build muscle tissue faster, you won’t do it by eating candy bars. You need a good source of protein in your diet to help you do it. Everyone has different goals and while eating healthy has some basics, we help you choose the food you need for the nutrients to attain your goal, whether it’s shedding weight, putting on weight or building muscles and getting fit.

That doesn’t mean you don’t have to exercise.

Healthy eating is a top priority, but it won’t keep you in shape as you age and won’t give you all the benefits exercising regularly offers. Those include lowering the potential for serious conditions, such as high blood pressure, diabetes, heart disease and even osteoporosis. In fact, one study shows that exercising not only helps maintain bone density better than some medications for osteoporosis, but it also can help reverse some of the changes and make them stronger.

  • Living healthy also means getting adequate sleep. While you’ll sleep better when you workout, sticking with a sleep schedule is also important. Adequate sleep helps with weight control and lowers the risk of heart disease.
  • What you drink also counts toward a healthy diet. Soft drinks and sugary drinks provide empty calories and can even add to the risk of serious conditions. Even diet soda can cause visceral fat. It’s fat around the abdomen.
  • Make sure you stay hydrated and drink plenty of water. You need at least eight 8-ounce glasses each day. Sometime, dehydration makes you think you’re hungry when you’re really just thirsty.
  • If you’re choosing a healthier lifestyle, focus on all the benefits and how good you feel, not on what you have to give up. Body Sculptors can help you with a healthy menu of delicious food that will make you glad you chose healthy eating.

Commit To Get Fit Before You Feast

Commit To Get Fit Before You Feast

If you want to start your new year right, start now. Many of my newer clients in Louisville, KY, decided to commit to get fit before the big holiday meals. Not only does it help prevent weight gain, it actually makes them more aware of what foods they really enjoy. Rather than filling their plate with dressing and gravy, they might choose more lean turkey and vegetables, deciding the dressing and gravy wasn’t that important. That doesn’t mean that if you love dressing and gravy that you can’t have any if you commit. Just don’t make an entire meal of it and make sure to enjoy every minute of eating it.

Once you commit, you also commit to making smarter choices.

Healthy eating doesn’t mean you give up everything, but it does mean that you eat with some forethought. You make decisions based on taste, nutrition and calorie count. If you can get the same taste with more nutrition and fewer calories, all the better. For example, using Greek yogurt instead of sour cream on a baked potato will give you that.

Mindful eating and savoring each bite is important.

The phrase, “stuffing your face,” isn’t just an expression. It actually occurs and most frequently occurs during the holidays. Do you find yourself eating just because the food is there, even though you’ve eaten so much you’re actually uncomfortable. Maybe it’s time to do some mindful eating and the holidays provide the perfect opportunity. There are all types of food, so some of them will be your favorites and you can take the time to truly taste them and enjoy them. Eat slowly and enjoy the flavor in your mouth.

There’s nothing wrong with feasting occasionally.

If you’re working out regularly, you need a supply of healthy food to keep you going. Weight loss occurs when you eat fewer calories than you burn, but that doesn’t mean you need to starve. In fact, a super low calorie diet is actually counterproductive. It can lower your metabolism, making shedding pounds more difficult. Your body goes into starvation mode where it tries to save calories for important functions. You’ll also find that working out doesn’t go as well as it does when you have the energy to burn. Feasting occasionally can keep your metabolic fires burning and give you the energy you need.

You can feast and still eat healthy. Start your meal with more vegetables and choose ones that aren’t starchy, such as potatoes. A big salad before your meal can also help reduce your appetite.

Dessert is the hardest to pass on, but you don’t have to do that. Split a dessert with another family member or only eat half. Just taking a bite and savoring it can give you the pleasure without all the calories.

Learn portion control. You’ll be surprised at how portion control can help you keep your calorie count lower while you still get to enjoy all the food you love.

At Body Sculptors, we can help you with a nutritional plan that will teach you how to feast without consuming tons of calories. It’s all about making smarter choices.

Supplements Do You Need Them?

Supplements Do You Need Them?

There are a lot of reasons people take supplements . Older people that find it hard to eat all the food they require to get adequate nutrition, whether because of lack of appetite or because of poor absorption where more nutrients are required, may need to supplement their diet. Some people use supplements to help build muscle, while others mistakenly think that taking a supplement is all that’s necessary and they can continue eating a bad diet. Taking supplements can even cause health issues, especially if used recklessly.

Nothing can replace healthy eating.

One of the worst reasons people take supplements is that they think they can stay with their bad dietary habits and solve the problem with supplements. The truth is, it’s not only the worst reason for taking supplements, it doesn’t work. When you eat junk food, you’re consuming junk that man wasn’t meant to eat, like preservatives and other additives. Supplements also don’t contain the phytonutrients you find in food, such as anthocyanin that gives the color to red, purple and blue fruits and vegetables. Whole food provides nutrients that work together to make the body healthier.

You can get too much of a good thing.

Watch out for taking too much vitamin A, D and E. Those are fat soluble vitamins that can build up in your body if you take too much and cause serious conditions, such as liver damage. Even water soluble vitamins like vitamin C aren’t risk free. It can cause diarrhea, vomiting, heartburn, nausea, headache, cramps and even insomnia. Even though you need calcium for strong bones, too much calcium can actually weaken the bones.

Vitamin and mineral deficiencies are real.

Most people are aware that pregnant women and seniors often require more nutrients, but many other people may also require them. For instance, one study showed that vitamin D deficiency is rampant and it’s primarily due to the increased use of sunscreen. To prevent the problem, start a program of smart tanning and wear sunscreen the rest of the time. It’s especially important for pregnant women, women pat menopause and children, since vitamin D plays an important role in building and mineralizing stronger teeth and bones, it keeps you mentally more alert and boosts your immune system. It helps reduce abdominal fat, provide stronger hair and improves heart health.

  • Protein supplements or protein powder may help you lose weight and tone muscles, but it’s not a miracle supplement. It’s excellent added to a smoothie made of fresh fruits and vegetables. Taking too much isn’t good for your health.
  • Consider checking with your physician and get tests to see if you need supplements. Also, supplement can exacerbate some health issues and interfere with medication, which is another reason to discuss it with your health care professional.
  • Supplements from natural source are normally better than those made in a factory. Krill oil or fish oil, for instance, are both natural and provide a source of healthy Omega-3 fatty acids.
  • You can adjust your diet to increase your intake of certain vitamins and minerals and we can help. If you have special needs and want a dietary guideline, we’re ready to give you that help.

Best Remedies For Constipation

Best Remedies For Constipation

Constipation isn’t a new problem, but it has become far more prevalent with today’s diet. It affects about 20 percent of the population and while diet plays a big role, so doe lifestyle. The definition for constipation is less than three bowel movements a week and the symptoms include bloating, pain passing hard stools and long unfruitful trips to the bathroom. There are natural remedies for constipation that can help most people and are normally quite effective. .

What you eat makes a huge difference.

Eating more whole foods like fruits and vegetables can decrease the potential for constipation. That’s because these foods contain fiber. There are two types of fiber, soluble and insoluble, and both help get things moving, but insoluble may offer less help, and in some people, no help at all. Insoluble fiber is the fiber found in whole grains, bran and vegetables. It adds bulk and helps the waste travel through your system more quickly. Soluble fiber is in seeds, beans, peas, some fresh fruit and vegetables and oat bran. It helps absorb water to soften the stool and make it easier to go.

Get moving to get things moving in your colon.

While there are mixed reviews in studies as to the effect of exercise on constipation, but for centuries, it was one of the cures recommended. Studies found that exercise can help reduce the symptoms of constipation such as bloating and pain, even if it doesn’t increase frequency. Riding a bike, walking or other mild exercise is thought to work the muscles and massage the colon, helping to eliminate gas that builds up, too.

Drinking more water is a definite plus if you’re trying to beat the bloat of constipation.

It probably won’t surprise you to find that dehydration adds to the potential of constipation and many people who suffer from chronic constipation are frequently mildly dehydrated. The solution is easy, drink more water. One study found that carbonated—sparkling—water worked faster than tap water to get things moving again. It works better even for people with IBS or idiopathic constipation. Don’t mistake that for soft drinks. Those actually make you more constipated.

  • If you find you have to use the bathroom right after your morning coffee, it won’t surprise you to find out that caffeinated is a good treatment for constipation.
  • When you think of cures for constipation, prunes usually come to mind first. Prunes not only provide fiber, they also contain sorbitol, which acts like a laxative. Avoid this cure if you have IBS, since it’s a sugar alcohol.
  • Eating both prebiotic and probiotic foods can help you get your digestion healthier. The prebiotic foods not only help feed the healthy bacteria, they also provide more fiber. Probiotic foods help balance the bacteria in the gut.
  • Whether it’s eating healthier foods, drinking more water, getting plenty of exercise or adding pre and probiotics to your diet, even if they don’t provide a cure for your constipation, you’ll be helping your body get healthier.
