  • Personal Training in Huntington Beach - The Training Spot - Why You Should Meal Prep

    Why You Should Meal Prep

    (Article on Nerd Fitness) Think about walking into a gym and randomly doing a few sets here, a few sets there… a wandering sheep without a shepherd. We’ve all been there. Do we REALLY expect to make huge progress without knowing what we’re doing? No, of course not! It’s why we love having a plan to follow: it eliminates 99% of the decisions that can derail us on our progress: “Should I do 3 sets of 5 or 5 sets of 5? Gah!” Now, we know we need a workout plan to follow to make progress (That is why you have me!), but why don’t we think of food the same way? Today I want to try to convince you that you should.
    A few decisions early in the week ....

  • Personal Training in Huntington Beach - The Training Spot - Build More Muscle with L-Glutamine

    Build More Muscle with L-Glutamine

    L-Glutamine™ is the most abundant amino acid in the body (including the brain, muscle and blood). The concentration of free glutamine appears to influence whether muscles will be broken down (catabolism-low glutamine content) or built up (anabolism – high glutamine content). Glutamine acts as a “nitrogen shuttle” by picking up and dropping off nitrogen around the body. Nitrogen is an essential component of DNA and vital for building muscle. Glutamine is a prominent contributor to the functional integrity of the intestines and serves as an energy source for these highly active cells. Overall, L-Glutamine supports muscle growth and recovery, immune and intestinal ....

  • Personal Training in Huntington Beach - The Training Spot - The Benefits of Creatine

    The Benefits of Creatine

    In the body, creatine is synthesized from the amino acids glycine, arginine and methionine. Taking supplemental doses of creatine monohydrate can increase muscle creatine and phosphocreatine (PC) concentrations by up to 40%.* These increases can lead to improvements in muscle energy production and recuperation. Muscle PC is used as a high-energy substrate (fuel) required for immediate bursts of energy during high intensity and anaerobic exercise. Those taking supplemental creatine often notice increases in muscle cell size and strength, with decreases in the onset of fatigue and faster recovery. RECAP:

    Increases muscle production and recuperation!
    Scientifically proven to slow down ....

    Why Leading with the Body is Best

    I have spoken to three different people today that have said something along the lines of “Can’t wait until the weekend! Just two more days until I have some time off work.” Sound like someone you know? That always intrigued me. As if they were forced to be there. Well, maybe on some level they are. I bet you they are living in a world of ‘have to’ (you know, ‘I have to do this awful job, I have to pay my mortgage’) and they just sound like total victims to me. I think a lot of people don’t realize their true potential and they tend to settle. Maybe that has a lot to do with self-esteem, maybe it doesn’t. But for the sake of this ....

    Study Claims Eggs are as Unhealthy as Smoking

    “Is Eating Eggs as Bad as Smoking?” These are two headlines that appeared after a study done by researchers at the University of Western in Ontario, Canada was published on the website atherosclerosis-journal.com on August 10th of 2012. Pretty shocking stuff. If you take what they say at face value you may never eat another egg again. But the good news for egg lovers is that study was quickly debunked. The study was seriously flawed according to cardiologists. “It is extremely important to understand the differences between ‘association’ and ‘causation.’ This is very poor quality research that should not influence patient’s dietary ....

    January Diets: Yes or No? Plus Seven "Eating Healthy" Tips

    It’s that time of year again. The time of year when people make New Year’s Resolutions. Why are they so popular? One reason is they give us hope. Hope that in the immediate future positive change will materialize in our lives. As we head into 2016, millions of people across the globe will pledge to (among other things) drink less alcohol, exercise more, get a better job, save more money and, of course, lose weight (what some people call a “January diet.”) In fact, according to the Statistic Brain website, losing weight is the most popular New Year’s resolution. But here’s the thing… Most people will fail miserably… A 2007 study by Richard ....

    Fat Loss, Tough Love, and Men.

    Men, it’s time we had a talk, mano a mano. No pulling of punches; it’s time to get right to the point. American men are soft. Worse. They’re weak. Worse yet. They’ve volunteered to be soft and weak. In large part, the diseases they carry in their bodies are self-inflicted. Make no mistake about it, any able-bodied man’s current level of fitness, (good or bad), is a mindful decision. It’s a deliberate act; a purposeful choice. Every indecision is a decision. Your body, right now, is largely a reflection of your decisions. Your habits have created your physique. And your health choices have set you up for success or failure. Before I continue, ....

    Your body fat, its percentage what it looks like, where you store it, and what to do about it.

    “There’s a critical distinction between aging and decay that you need to keep in mind from here on in. Aging is inevitable, but it’s biologically programmed to be a slow process. Most of what we call aging, and most of what we dread about getting older, is actually decay. That’s critically important because we are stuck with real aging, But decay is optional.” — From the book, Younger Next Year. Page 33. A delicate subject, fat. Especially for women, who are the primary focus of this article. I’ll address men in a separate article soon. In a purely clinical sense, fat and fat loss is a topic of health, fitness and longevity. On a personal level, ....

    Is Your Body Resistant to Losing Weight?

    If your body is resistant to dropping the pounds, taking charge of this one hormone could change your life. With The TakeDown Challenge officially beginning this Friday, (and weigh-ins starting today and going through Wednesday), I wanted to share some fascinating research you’ll want to keep in mind. The 28_Day TakeDown Challenge begins September 11, 2015. It has to do with how sensitive your body is to a certain hormone — the only hormone that you have near 100% control over — and why it’s near impossible to be healthy and lean without being sensitive to it. I am, of course, referring to insulin sensitivity, and it’s ability to trigger fat loss. Plus, ....
