Did You Know?

Muscle Runner

 

Did you know almost half the human body’s weight is made from one of three types of muscle tissue?

They are…

 

  •  Skeletal muscle or “voluntary muscle” is anchored by tendons to bone and is used to effect skeletal movement such as locomotion and in maintaining posture.
  •  Smooth muscle or “involuntary muscle” is found within the walls of organs and structures such as the esophagus, and stomach. Unlike skeletal muscle, smooth muscle is not under conscious control.
  •  Cardiac muscle is also an “involuntary muscle” but is more akin in structure to skeletal muscle, and is found only in the heart.

4 things to change to lose Weight!

 

1. Don’t Put Off Till Tomorrow What You Should Do Today! 

Don’t keep skipping workouts for all sorts of reasons. Consistency is one of the keys in being successful at anything in life, and fat loss is no exception.

2. Train Hard Or Go Home!
This doesn’t always mean lifting heavy weights. Intensity techniques such as drop sets, super sets and negative training will shock your body and help to spike your metabolism and spur new lean muscle tissue growth.

3. Change Things Up!
Every 6-8 weeks, if your struggling with fat loss you should change up your routine to keep shocking your body.

4. Go To Bed!
Getting six or less hours of sleep can cause fat gain. This also prevents your muscles from recovering properly after a workout. On the other side, more than nine hours of sleep can also sabotage your efforts.
