Training Legs

renita-fitnessDid you know..

 

1. Training legs releases large amount of anabolic hormones. Both Testosterone and Growth Hormone have been shown to significantly increase after large compound movement. Squats and Deadlifts are both exercises that utilize the legs and have been shown to increase these anabolic hormones more so than any other exercise.

3. Training legs increases libido. Not only will developed legs make an impression, for guys the increased circulation and Testosterone are sure to help you perform.

 

SOUNDS GOOD TO ME!

Taste of Success

renita-fitness“On your road to success you are going to run into negativity.

They are called….Haters?”

 

“On every level is a new devil”. As Steve Harvey puts it.

 

Yes, one of the drawbacks of success in any field will always be people trying to bring you down. They will talk bad about you, belittle you to others, and even make up lies about you. If you’re not experiencing it yet, just keep growing, keeping improving and keep living.

 

This is your journey and you decided to take this path. It’s your path and yours alone, so embrace it and don’t let haters in on it, they don’t belong there.

For people who post a lot of online positivity. No matter how nice your pictures are or how real your quotes are, there are some people who will never hit the “like” button just because it’s you.

 

Have you ever met a hater doing better than you? Me neither…

For the most part these people don’t know you. Not who you really are inside anyways. They know what their biases perceptions tell them, but they don’t know how this life style makes you feel, the confidence you have gained because of it, the benefit it has on your life and others around you.

 

Understand why you do what you do and your purpose. If you truly know it’s good, good for you, doesn’t hurt anyone, and helps inspire and motivate others, then allow it to continue under your terms. You define you. If you have good intentions and want to truly better yourself and or help others, then do it.

 

Do these “haters” pay your bills? Will you still be friends in 5 years? Do they decide if you will or will not be happy in life? In most all cases you can say no to all of the above. If they don’t have a direct effect on your life…why care? And if they do have a direct effect on you and your life, they obviously don’t have your best intentions in mind.

 

Don’t let them get to you. It’s that simple. Respect yourself and your decisions and don’t let their opinions and hate into your life.

 

Surround yourself with likeminded positive people. They say the 5 people you surround yourself with most will dictate where you go with your life. If you surround yourself with people constantly trying to bring you down, just exactly how successful do you think you will be? Build a support system of positivity and people that will encourage you every step of the way.

 

Keep a level head. Don’t give them a reason to attack you. Meaning, be conscious of what you put out there. Remember, when you put something online it is for all to see. If you can’t handle the criticism, then find different methods to get your message out there.

If you are under attack, it’s ok to stand up for yourself and your ideals. Don’t feel bad for this. However, I would recommend that you don’t waste your time with people you don’t know/online or anywhere else. They want a reaction out of you, and when you give in, the attacks will get worse.

 

Don’t respond. If you don’t respond they will eventually move on.

Love yourself, yes love yourself…It’s that simple. You know who you are, you know your strengths and your weaknesses. Once you accept your flaws and love yourself for all that you are, you take away their power.

 

“Listen, smile, agree, and then do whatever the F you were gonna do anyway” –Robert Downey Jr

 

Really what it amounts to is this. These haters only bother you because you allow them to. You have a choice every day, and every time it happens to allow the negativity into your life or not. You can’t control what other say or do, only how you handle yourself and how you respond to the given situations . If you want to better yourself, be a beacon of hope to some, motivate, educate, inspire, etc…That’s your choice…Just as it’s others choice to do the opposite. If you’re not hurting anyone, then don’t let someone else dim your light simply because it’s shining in their eyes. Do what makes you happy. Life is too short to be anything less.

Passion and Goals

renita-fitness-studioRemind yourself of your goals daily and share them with others. Motivation is like eating and taking a bath. If you don’t do them each day, you’ll starve to death and smell bad. Post pictures of things that motivated you to get started in the first place everywhere. Seeing them will reignite your passion.

Summer coming! What do I do? My body not ready!

summer-looksSummer is just about here and we want to look our best in our bikinis, sundresses, tank tops, and shorts. So what do we do? We hit the gym. There’s the elliptical, the treadmill, some free weights, machine weights… I don’t know about you, but doing the exact same workout day after day becomes unmotivatng.

 

Exercising is sacred time you have with yourself. You are making yourself better each time you are working out. Not only are you making yourself physically stronger, you’re flushing your mind of all stress and negativity. You are literally ripping apart your old self and creating a new and better you. But how many people do you know (including yourself) who approach exercising like this? Probably not many.

 

And that’s where I think most people have it wrong: they consider their exercising time as more of a chore than valuable “me” time. Workouts become so routine that it becomes not fun anymore. They dread their workouts each day until finally, they stop completely. But it shouldn’t be like this!

 

If this sounds like you, it’s time to kick your workouts up a notch! The best way to do so is to try out different group exercise classes. I have always been a fan of group exercise classes. My members always tell me that when they love coming to the classes. They are less likely to slack off, make new friends, and they don’t want to look like a wimp among my other classmates, so they do their best to do each exercise correctly and completely.
