3 Key Components of a Balanced Meal

Have you ever eaten a meal and within 2 hours after eating you felt hungry or “snacky”?

This is such a common feeling for people who try to restrict calories and/or for those who are just following the wrong diet for their needs. If this sounds like you, let me first tell you - you’re definitely not alone. There’s a reason why this is happening and it has nothing to do with willpower or discipline.

In this article you’ll learn exactly what to include in your meals to help keep you full and satisfied so you can make it until your next meal without wanting a snack.

Why is this important? Because the feeling of constant hunger is a sign that 1) your body is not being nourished with the proper foods and/or 2) there is an underlying cause that needs to be addressed.

Before continuing, it must be said that there are many reasons we choose to eat (that are both physical and emotional). The purpose of this article is to address 1 reason that is completely in...

Fitness Industry Issues

 

One of the biggest issues we talk about is only thinking about an exercise, or a method, or an attribute as THE exercise, method, or attribute for fitness results. However, if you are a hammer or if you only have a hammer, then everything is a nail.

 Introducing Marcus and Aaron with Living.Fit

 Marcus Martinez and Aaron Guyett are both Master Coaches with Living.Fit, and Aaron Guyett is the Education Director as well. Every month they talk through a few topics to help clear a path to a better you on the Living.Fit Show.

 The Perfect Hammer

 As humans, we want to believe that there is a perfect exercise, or a perfect methodology, or a perfect fill-in-the-blank. Unfortunately, this is just not true. Humans compared to animals are incredibly alike, but one human compared to another, are drastically different...not to mention that each human is going to go through a very different life experience than other humans. So to say that there is a perfect exercise or...

Tips for Smooth Kettlebell Cleans

 

The Kettlebell Clean:

The Kettlebell Clean is a powerful exercise that has the potential to build a stronger body or trash your forearms if you’re not careful. There are many regressions that will help you understand the path the kettlebell takes and the timing required to avoid bruised arms. The two hand cheat curl clean is the easiest way to take that kettlebell on the journey from hanging to the rack position with as little momentum as possible. I used this with great success on new clients. The next regression came out of necessity and to fill a much needed step on the path to great cleans.

The Cheat Curl: 

The cheat curl is great for learning the trajectory of the bell, but does nothing with hip speed or the timing of the pull. Once my client understands the pathway it’s time to kick it up a notch. Once you’ve tried this under complete control adding some speed will help add more parts to the movement, but too much speed can break you.

Dr. Mike T. Nelson Interview with Aaron Guyett

Uncategorized Apr 01, 2021
 

300 words of what you do and why:

From an early age, I was a kid who read tonsssss.  And that worked it's way into auditing anatomy and physiology classes during my other course work.  I was fascinated by the human body and its ability to do everything. . . Move, digest, heal, be, exist, think.  So I finally funneled that passion into a PhD in Kinesiology.  Even while working for 14 yrs at a medical device company, I attended conferences on training.  At these conferences, I'd ask the trainers next to me if they read a study on this or that particular topic, and they looked at me like I'd sprouted another head.

9 New Grips with Battle Ropes

 

New grips help your brain and body develop more resilience, more endurance and incredible strength, through different ways to create the link between your body’s movement and your battle ropes waves.

 If you have used battle ropes at all, you are probably familiar with thumb forward and thumb away crush grips that are normal to any battle rope movements you can do with your single or doubled battle rope. These are a great way to change up your training, but if you have been training with your ropes for a while, I have 9 new grips that help you improve your grip strength and create increased versatility with your training.

Grab the battle rope at the end of the handle with only your fingertips, including your thumb is brutal, even without trying to create movements or waves.

Complex vs Circuit vs Flow with a Kettlebell

 

In this video Marcus Martinez breaks down the differences between the Kettlebell Complex, Circuit, and Flow.

While they look similar, what you will find as you learn a bit more, each is very different, and all three can be effective ways to train with kettlebells.

Complex

A complex is a string of exercises where you don't put the kettlebell down.

Circuit

A variety of exercises, and you have breaks in between.

Flow

Focusing on being present, and exploring both creativity and what you can do effectively with a kettlebell without putting the bell down.

If you want to learn more from Marcus about complexes, circuits, and flows, subscribe to our Reading and Demonstrations below.

-       Reducing insulin (your storage hormone)[5]

What is intermittent fasting?

Intermittent Fasting (IF) is a term used to explain an eating pattern where you cycle between periods of eating and periods of fasting (abstinence from food and caloric beverages). The therapeutic benefits have been documented for thousands of years and have shown that this way of eating is deeply rooted in our biology. 

Philosophers like Socrates, Hippocrates, Plato and Paracelsus even believed in the health benefits of regular fasting. 

Not only was fasting used...
