  • Reduce muscle stiffness and delayed onset muscle soreness (DOMS)
  • Increase range of motion and flexibility.
  • Raise pain pressure threshold (the measurement of the minimum force applied that induces pain)
  • Promote fasterinjury recovery and rehabilitation.

  • The massage gun has a fast percussion per minute with some of them up to 3200. The gun works on specific areas where the foam roller works on a broad area. I would recommend utilizing both pre and post workout or event.

Top 9 Reasons Why People Fail With Fitness Goals…And How To Avoid Them

How many times in a year do you start a new fitness and or nutrition plan and fall back into old habits shortly after?

We all have goals and no matter how much you think you want them, we sometimes come up short for various reasons. You see the inspiring before and after photos online and most of us think “why not us?” So whats the difference between you and them?

Effort. Commitment. If you have been giving it an honest shot it comes down to changing your mindset and daily habits. These changes do not have to be drastic and typically you will find more long term success when they aren’t.

  1. A complex workout planSolution: Go back to the basics with your meal plan and workout plan. No need to complicate it to obtain results. You are less likely to be consistent with a complicated program.
  2. Workouts get boringSolution: No one wants to get not he treadmill every day. Find enjoyment in your workouts and the process overall.
  3. Broken promises to yourselfSolution: Build internal trust with yourself by keeping promises and making the commitment.
  4. No motivationSolution: Create a vision for the future. Find a photo that gives you a vision of a body type that you want to achieve something similar to. SIMILAR, don’t expect exact. Make a COMMITTMENT to yourself. Motivation will come and go.
  5. Lack of accountabilitySolution: Fitness can be lonely and finding someone with similar goals, an accountability partner, can be very helpful especially on the days when you are feeling weak.
  6. Lack of consistent habitsSolution: Implement a daily system and build the habits into your lifestyle.
  7. Not enough timeSolution: Schedules are busy and there are only 24 hours in a day, but…you don’t have to workout an hour every day. Don’t get caught up with that. 20-30 minutes of high intensity training can get you results when done consistently.
  8. Misalignment of actions and goalsSolution: Its simple. If you want to change the results, you must change the actions you are doing to get there.
  9. Not tracking your progressSolution: Track these actions and make sure to add actions that are measurable so you can change them as you go in order to obtain the results you wish. Is it your food intake? Track it using a diary or app. You can also do the same for your workouts. Make changes as you go.

4 Reasons You Shouldn’t Wait On The New Year To Start On Your Goals

Its already Christmas and we will soon be into the new decade. Have you set new goals for the new year? Are they personal, professional, fitness, and or nutrition related? Are you waiting until 1/1 to start? —Why? Ill tell you why you shouldn’t wait below.

 

An Excuse to Put it Off

Stop saying “Ill start Monday.” Everyone does that, right? this is just another excuse. Stop giving yourself permission to be lazy. Habits like these are whats holding you back from achieving future goals mentally which in turn show physically.

These excuses kill your ambition and in turn steal your motivation. Learn to step away from the norm. Being “the norm” isn’t where you want to be and isn’t going to help you accomplish your dreams.

Step out of your “norm” and out of your “comfort zone.”

 

Being a Step Ahead

Have you ever looked back and thought “I would be much further if I would’ve started sooner?” I think that says for most of us. Just getting started is one of the harder things to actually do. You will not always be motivated and once we get a few months into the year you may not be as far along as you would like.

Start now and be a step ahead of everyone including yourself in goals you wanted to reach including being further along in the first 2 months of the year.

 

Setting a Tone

Use the next couple of weeks as a trial run to determine what works and doesn’t work for you personally and professionally. A lot of times the new years starts and we don’t know where to get started. By getting ahead of the game and creating a plan to follow you can walk into the new year with confidence in the things you are doing.

Do your practice run and be ready to go into the new year knowing what you are trying to achieve and have a plan to actually get there.

 

There is No Better Time Than Now

I have said and will continue to say there is no better time to start something than now.

If you continue to put things off you will continue to do just that, so why not stop? Lose the excuses, look for. little motivations and a big dose of commitment and start doing them now.

Post Workout Accountability-Are you maximizing your results?

You’ve been hearing for years to “drink protein immediately after your workout,” but is that it? NOPE.

We are here to share with you the real deal. Drinking protein post workout is only a small component of what your body needs for proper recovery and is not even its top priority after your workout. Drinking a protein shake on its own is better than nothing, but if you want the best possible results, not the “better than nothing” results read on…

The truth…drinking only a protein shake after a workout means that your body will very slowly digest the protein, convert most of it into glucose and push it into the cell as glycogen. Why?

Because when you are training, you are actually doing 2 things.

  1. Depleting your glycogen stores. (Glycogen is glucose that is stored in your muscle cells to be used as fuel during stents of intense activity.)
  2. Breaking down your muscle tissue and creating micro-traumas on your muscle fiber.

Done with training? Your body is focused on 2 tasks;

-Replenish your glycogen stores AND repair the micro-trauma in your muscles

Your body will ALWAYS choose to replenish glycogen stores before repairing the trauma. This is how our bodies are programmed. 

 

This is why drinking protein alone is not as effective as Phormula-1 WITH Ignition post-workout.

Whats Ignition?

It is a pure dexanhydrous glucose the has vitamin complex in it to properly replenish your glycogen and replace crucial vitamins your sweated out during training.

Doing post workout correctly  helps in recovering faster, reducing soreness, and retaining more lean muscle. By maintaining more muscle tissue this helps keep your metabolism high and increase fat loss while dieting.
