What Are HIIT Workouts?

What Are HIIT Workouts?

HIIT—High Intensity Interval Training—is one of the techniques we use at Skinsport in Phoenix, AZ. The reason is simple, HIIT workouts get results. HIIT is a technique that differs from traditional workouts that are steady state. No matter what the exercise, the process is the same. The person exercising gives 100% effort for a short period, basically, giving it a burst of energy for a minute or two. That gets the heart rate up. That’s followed by a similar amount of time in recovery, which is far less intense. The body uses more oxygen during the recovery period and that causes afterburn.

The alternating intensity style of workout creates afterburn.

Afterburn is the effect that occurs after a tough workout. It’s called Excess Post-Exercise Oxygen Consumption—EPOC. It’s the reason that when you do intense exercise, you burn more calories and ultimately more fat than you would if you followed a steady-state style of workout. That EPOC increases the calories burned after the intensity stops. You couldn’t go at top speed for an entire workout, but you can get the same effect by switching between high intensity and recovery.

There are some great benefits from HIIT workouts.

You’ll boost your metabolism with HIIT workouts. Studies show that getting the body back to normal oxygen levels, repairing muscle tissue and removing lactic acid build-up boosts the metabolism for up to 48 hours after the workout ends. You’ll still be burning extra calories from the day before, even if you don’t go to the gym that day. It’s a benefit that uses the body’s own recovery system to burn extra calories.

This type of workout is convenient, too.

You’ll save time when you use the HIIT technique, no matter what type of workout you do. Just thirty minutes provides all the exercise you need, compared to the traditional hour long workout. This technique can be used with any type of exercise, so whether you’re just starting out and walking because your body isn’t ready to run, you can walk at top speed for a minute or less and then have twice that time at a recovery pace.

  • Since you can use HIIT with any type of workout, you can do it without any equipment. If you choose to combine it with strength training, you’ll get a cardio workout at the same time you’re doing strength training.
  • Even low impact exercises, such as swimming, can be modified to be HIIT workouts. That allows people with joint problems to get the benefits.
  • Opting for HIIT style of workouts can get better results, cut the workout time and actually make the workout more interesting than a steady-state option.
  • At Skinsport, we use the latest information and scientific studies to provide the most effective workouts that help you get results.

Reward Yourself After A Tough Workout

Reward Yourself After A Tough Workout

Seeing success and reaching your fitness goal takes time. You don’t go from a sedentary lifestyle to running an eight-minute mile overnight. You also can’t shed 40 pounds in a week or build strong muscles in a few days. Reaching tough goals takes time, so in the meantime, you have to find ways to provide incentive. Whether you have weekly benchmarks to reach or decide to reward yourself after a tough workout, finding ways to motivate yourself until you see a difference or reach your primary fitness goal is important.

There are a number of ways to reward yourself.

Probably the way I most frequently hear from people working out in the gym involves resting and relaxing. Whether you choose to take a nap after your workout, take a long, relaxing soak in the tub or simply watch television or other video for an hour to provide mental and physical rest, it’s all good. Some people opt for a massage after a workout and that’s relaxing, plus provides health benefits for the body, just as a nap does, allowing your muscles to heal.

Find something you want to purchase, but think it’s an extravagance.

Everyone has that workout outfit they’d love, but the price is a bit more than their budget allows or a special treat they’d feel guilty giving themselves. Save for it by paying yourself for a workout and let that guilt go to the sidelines. Pay yourself for a tough workout. You could even create a scale with a normal workout being a specific amount, like a dollar, and a tough one that’s worth more, such as $2 or $3. Just put that money in the jar at the end of a tough workout, knowing you’re getting toward your goal. You’ll be working out harder each time just to reach your goal.

Opt for the workout to be the reward.

You don’t have to do workouts you hate. There are so many ways to get exercise. If you’ve always wanted to ride your bike to another city or another part of your town, that can be a tough workout in itself. That tough workout can be the reward for getting into shape to do it. In essence, the reward is the tough workout itself. Getting fit isn’t just about losing weight. Sometimes, it’s about allowing you to do things you didn’t have the strength and stamina to do previously and that can be very rewarding.

  • If you don’t make it a habit or overdo it, opting for a sweet treat after a tough workout can be a reward. If you set your sights to one sweet treat as a reward every month, but only if you complete a tough workout on a regular basis, you can savor that sweet treat down to the last crumb.
  • Tracking your progress can be a reward in itself. Track every exercise, the number of reps and sets, amount of weight if you’re doing strength training and even how difficult it was, you’ll be able to see how much you’ve improved, which is quite rewarding.
  • Get reservations at the hottest health food restaurant in town. It may be pricey, so you may have to rack up several tough workouts, but eating a healthy meal with all the amenities of a five star restaurant will not only provide a great reward, give you more ideas for your own menu.
  • Buy something new to wear. Start accumulating all the trappings for a new gym outfit. Buy shorts, shoes, socks, hat and a shirt that all go together, but get only one after a hard workout. That way you can motivate yourself to work out harder several different times.

Pros and Cons Of Sport Supplements

Pros and Cons Of Sport Supplements

For every positive factor discussed about exercise and dietary guidelines, there are negatives. There are pros and cons for sport supplements, too. There are also good supplements that actually help you get fitter and ones that provide no health benefits, but are loaded with sugar and additives. Basically, these types of sport supplements are nothing more than fancy candy bars or sugary drinks that add nothing beneficial to the person not doing an intense, longer workout, except a few extra calories.

There are sports drinks and supplements that provide the benefits they claim.

Read the label and see if the supplement actually was tested by an outside organization. Third party testing is important. Since sports supplements aren’t well regulated, even if the label says it guarantees it contains certain ingredients, unless you have your own lab, you don’t know that for sure. In fact, some protein powders, when tested, contained ephedra, lead and even steroids. Cost is another issue that can make the case for opting for regular food over supplements. A hard boiled egg and an English muffin or some veggies are far less expensive and provides more nutrition.

Supplements don’t provide all the nourishment you need to be healthy.

Choosing food over supplements can provide extra benefits. Supplements are called that because they’re not meant to be the entire diet, but unfortunately some people use them as that. If you choose a whey supplement, instead of using a cup of yogurt, you’ll miss out on the probiotics from the yogurt. Choosing an energy bar over fruit with nut butter or a serving of nuts and some grapes boosts your calorie count, but doesn’t provide all the extra nutrition that whole foods provide.

There is a case for using supplements.

Sometimes, you simply can’t take whole foods with you or it’s extremely inconvenient. That’s when a protein bar can be helpful. However, it shouldn’t be a substitute for whole foods for the rest of the day. Some people take supplements when they can’t eat all the food they require to get the added nutrition. Some sports supplements include vitamins, which can be beneficial if you have a problem using certain nutrients efficiently.

  • There are a variety of different types of sports drinks, each with a different use. Not all energy drinks are alike. Some are useful for different situations, while others aren’t useful at all except for rehydrating, which water does without the added calories.
  • Some supplements, such as creatine, can create health risks when consumed too often or in too large of quantity. Creatine isn’t metabolized the same by all people. For some, it provides a boost of energy, but not for everyone. In some people, it can stress the functioning of the kidneys and bladder.
  • If you’re trying to lose weight, supplements are not necessarily the way to go, especially if you’re replacing your diet with them. You don’t get all the fiber to fill you up or the satisfaction that whole foods offer.
  • Supplements don’t always provide the same benefits that whole foods provide. If you eat food high in beta-carotene, you could lower your risk of cancer. However, if you take a beta-carotene supplement, you can increase your risk of cancer. They simply don’t work the same way as whole food does.

Sugar Consumption & Metabolic Disease

Sugar Consumption & Metabolic Disease

There’s a group of changes to your body that point to metabolic disease. Having one of these changes doesn’t mean you have it, but does mean you have an increased risk. High blood sugar levels, high blood pressure abnormal triglyceride or cholesterol levels and carrying most of your weight around your middle are the signs. Metabolic disease leads to increased risk of heart disease and type 2 diabetes. What causes it, there’s a link to high sugar consumption.

Sugar is in everything, adding calories without adding nutrition.

It’s tough not to have a diet high in sugar, since it infiltrates all the food we eat! Take the go to favorite of the fast food world, the hamburger. Sugar is in the bun and the ketchup and mayonnaise. When you top it off with a soft drink, which is carbonated water, artificial flavoring and sugar, you have enough sugar to keep you going for a week. Not only is sugar in everything, it has no nutritional value, just empty calories. Breakfast cereals, jelly, candy, baked goods, sauces, bread and ready-made dinners all contain sugar. Sugar is highly addictive, especially HFCS—high fructose corn syrup. It metabolizes like alcohol and degenerates the liver. It causes inflammation and the symptoms of metabolic disease.

Added sugar is shown to both directly and indirectly account for diabetes and heart disease.

There’s direct evidence that consumption of added sugar is associated with insulin resistance, fatty liver, cardiovascular disease, elevated fat in the blood—dyslipidemia, diabetes and excess uric acid in the blood. These conditions don’t have to be in conjunction with weight gain either. Studies show that insulin resistance can develop without that occurring. While fruit contains fructose, the fiber changes the way the body reacts. The same is not true of HFCS, which is one of the most prominent types of sugar added.

Both the direct effect of sugar and the indirect effect, lead to metabolic disease,

As you can see, directly sugar causes dysregulation of fats and carbohydrate metabolism. However, there’s also an indirect link. Indirectly, high amounts of sugar leads to high calories and few nutrients, which causes weight gain and ultimately obesity. This too, leads to dysregulation of lipids (fats) and carbohydrate metabolism. The direct and indirect path both create the conclusion that eating more whole foods and cutting out added sugar can help prevent metabolic disease.

  • One mega study showed that not only sugar, but sugar substitutes in soft drinks can lead to visceral fat—fat around the middle. Rather than switching to diet drinks, switch to the ultimate diet drink, water.
  • Eating too much sugar can lead you to fill up on empty calories, leaving no room for nutritious ones that supply the nutrients your body needs to be healthy.
  • Not only is it hard to kick the sugar habit, because it seems to be in all processed food, sugar is addictive. It activates the opioid receptors in the brain, stimulating the release of dopamine, like opioids do.
  • Men with an apple shape and women with a pear shaped body indicates the potential for metabolic disease. That comes from visceral fat that lies deep in the abdomen and crowds the organs. Sugar consumption increases the tendency for visceral fat.

Great Protein Sources For Vegans

Great Protein Sources For Vegans

One of the problems faced by vegans is getting complete proteins. There are 20 amino acids that create a bond to make proteins. The body can make eleven of those, but it can’t make nine. They have to come from the food we eat and are called essential proteins. A complete protein contains all nine essential amino acids. Unlike animal sources that contain all nine in adequate amounts, not all plant protein sources are complete. These nine amino acids include: histidine, isoleucine, leucine, phenylalanine, threonine, tryptophan, lysine, methionine and valine. Finding complete protein sources for Vegans is one of the challenges faced eating a plant-based menu.

Vegan protein sources that are complete, but most aren’t.

While it’s harder to find complete proteins in a plant-based diet, there are some sources. Buckwheat, soy and quinoa are complete. However, most aren’t, so you have to combine sources to make them complete. Luckily, you don’t have to do it all at one time or at each meal, as was previously thought. You can eat a variety of plant protein sources throughout the day and meet your needs for complete proteins.

Soy products are great protein sources.

Whether it’s tofu, edamame, tempeh or other soy product, it’s normally a great source of protein. Tofu, soy curds, have ten grams of protein in every half cup. It’s often used as a meat substitute. Edamame offers 8 ½ grams per cup. Edamame are immature soybeans and often used as snacks. Tempeh is cooked and fermented soy that has 15 grams of protein for every half cup. Soy products are often used to replace dairy.

You can combine sources of protein at a meal for a complete protein.

Eating a variety of different protein sources throughout the day is the best way to achieve your protein goal. However, if you want to ensure you have a complete protein at a meal, you can simply combine two sources. For instance, whole grains and beans, such as beans and rice or pita bread and hummus, create a complete protein. Whole grains with nuts or seeds, think nut butter and whole wheat bread, also are complete proteins. Nuts and seeds with beans also are complete.

  • Not only are lentils a good source of protein, providing 8.84 grams per half cup, they also provide potassium. You can increase your protein intake by including lentils in salads and soups.
  • If you like hummus, you like chickpeas, which are a good source of protein with 7.25 grams per half cup. Best of all, you can get this protein as part of your snack.
  • PB&J never gets old and provides a great source of protein, especially when on whole wheat bread—even better Ezekiel bread. Peanut butter has 7 grams per serving—2 tablespoons, while almond butter contains 6.8 grams per serving.
  • Adding tons of dark leafy green vegetables to your diet will supplement your protein intake. Kale has 2 grams of protein per cup and broccoli contains 4 grams per medium stalk. Even mushrooms provide protein, with five providing about 3 grams.

Best Workouts When You Have An Injured Knee

Best Workouts When You Have An Injured Knee

There are always people who come into SkinSport in Phoenix AZ and Anthem, AZ who have special needs. Some want ones that are good for people with bad backs, heart conditions or any special needs. If you have an injury, we modify the workout to meet your needs. We even have workouts when you have an injured knee. Meeting special needs is one reason personal trainers are so popular. Here are just a few ways to exercise on your own with a knee injury.

Loosen up with stretches and foam roll exercises.

When you first return to exercising, you need to take it slow. Stretches are a great way to warm up unused muscles after an injury, particularly if you’ve had a cast. It’s important to get all the muscles moving. Start simple with a knee straightener. Sit in a straight chair, feet flat on the floor. Lift one leg to straighten it, exhaling in the process and then lower. You can do this standing, too. Lay on your back and lift one leg. You can grab it to help lift. Include a standing quad stretch, calf stretch and seated hamstring stretch to reach all the muscles of the knee.

Try these exercises to help you stay in shape without stressing your knees.

If you just were injured and need to completely stay off your knee, there’s no need to let other parts of your body suffer. Do assisted pull-ups, laying dumbbell presses, seated overhead shoulder presses, a seated row, lateral pulldowns and incline dumbbell press. If you have a serious injury, always wait for the doctor to give you the go ahead. However, if you can still get out, doing exercises that focus on other body parts will keep you in shape.

Do exercises that don’t put pressure on the knee.

You don’t have to stick exclusively to upper body workouts. There are lower body workouts that don’t put undo pressure on the knee. Crunches and pushups are floor exercises that can be used. Leg lifts and heel raises done with resistance bands are a few. While running may be out, don’t give up cardio exercises. You can swim, use a recumbent bicycle or an elliptical.

  • Know your body and listen to it. If you feel knee pain, you may be putting too much strain on your knee. Stop and take a rest.
  • Working out and boosting your circulation will actually help your knee heal faster. It also helps prevent weight gain. I can’t express it often enough, always check with your health care professional first.
  • Using resistance bands can help you improve your range of motion. Start by doing front leg extensions without a band and either add leg weights or use resistance bands as your knees get stronger.
  • It’s always best to work with a personal trainer, particularly when you start. He or she can help develop a program specifically for your needs and identify the muscles that need the most help, plus create a program that will safely get you into shape.

Keeping Fit At Home

Keeping Fit At Home

So much changed almost overnight in Anthem, AZ, when the governor announced the stay at home order. For some, it was a time to sit and binge watch Netflix, but for others it was a challenge. Many of my clients were focused on keeping fit at home, so they wouldn’t lose those important fitness advancements they’ve achieved. I’ve had several clients ask for some routines they could do at home that didn’t require a lot of room or equipment. Here are a few exercises you can do throughout the day when you can’t make it to the gym.

It’s all about getting moving and doing it often.

Even if you’re stuck at home, that doesn’t mean you have to huddle on the couch with a bag of chips and the remote. Take the time to get moving. That doesn’t mean you can’t watch your favorite shows, just sprinkle it with exercise. If you don’t own resistance bands, get a set, they’re great for strength training, pack away easily and cost very little. Do lunges with soup cans in your hands as weights, squats or just hang on to the side of the chair as you watch TV and do squats. Push ups or modified knee-bent push-ups are another addition to stay at home workouts.

Every workout should have five elements.

Start every intense workout with a warm up. You need to gradually get the body ready for a tough cardiovascular and intense muscle workout. It all begins with increasing your body temperature, while increasing the blood flow throughout the body. Walking briskly in place is one way to do it at home. You can get all three types of workouts cardio, strength and flexibility by doing interval training. Start with side kicks for 10-30 seconds, rest for half the time and repeat up to 8 times. Do the same with the next exercises: Skater jump, crab toe touch, frogger, curtsy lunge and finish with ten minutes of cool down.

Get the kids involved.

If you found yourself being the teacher, it’s time to teach gym. Get the kids involved with your workout and you’ll both be healthier. You may find they’re more fun when you do them together. Start with push-ups. If you have an older child, you can both do them. Let your child do knee bent push-ups if necessary. If you have a young child, let them sit on your back while you do a push-up to get a real workout. Squats are versatile enough you can do them with your child or with a younger child hanging onto your back or sitting on your shoulders. Lunges, sit ups and the plank can be done with the child as your partner or part of the workout.

  • For those with children, making them part of your exercise routine is rewarding. Kids love the extra attention, whether they’re working out with you or sitting on your back while you do.
  • If you’re working out at home, schedule your workout at a specific time, as you would any appointment.
  • It’s important to ensure your form is correct. No matter what exercise you do, form is the most important part. Doing a workout more slowly and focusing on form is far better than pushing yourself to do it faster or do more repetitions.
  • If you want to workout with weights, empty milk or detergent jugs filled with sand or water can substitute for weights. If you have work to do around the house, just pick up the pace and put all your effort into it. Cleaning windows, washing walls and sweeping with vigor gives a good workout.

Keep Your Skin Healthy All Year Long

Keep Your Skin Healthy All Year Long

People who come to SkinSport in Phoenix, love the results they get. They lose weight, get fitter, increase their energy level and see positive results in all parts of their body. In fact, many of the dietary and exercises improve your appearance in other ways. They keep your skin healthy all year long. The combination of increased fitness, improved circulation and better nutrition is what makes the difference.

Make your skin look years younger by focusing on healthy fat.

In order to look your best, you need the right type of nutrition. Increasing the amount of Omega-3 fatty acids in your diet is a start. Omega-3 fatty acids aid in keeping your skin supple, thick and moist. It reduces inflammation and the potential for acne. Walnuts and fatty fish are a good source of omega-3. Both also contains vitamin E, which is excellent for reducing skin damage, zinc and provides a good source of protein to aid in beautiful skin. Avocados are a source of healthy fat. It also helps keep skin moisturized and supple. New studies show that eating them regularly can help prevent skin damage from the sun. They are also a source of vitamin E and vitamin C, both of which protect the skin.

Include a rainbow of fruits and vegetables in your diet.

Each meal should contain fruits and vegetables. Sweet potatoes and other orange vegetables contain beta carotene that converts to vitamin A in the body. It’s also in spinach, which doesn’t fit the color code. Having adequate vitamin A is a natural sunscreen and provides antioxidants that protect the skin. Red or yellow bell peppers also contain vitamin A, but more importantly, is a rich source of vitamin C. That’s necessary to produce collagen, which reduces the risk of dry, wrinkled skin. Broccoli has both vitamin A and vitamin C, but also many other minerals and vitamins, which includes zinc. Tomatoes, another great source of vitamin C, contains lycopene, that protects the skin from the sun.

Exercise is essential for good circulation and can keep you younger at a cellular level.

When you workout, it extends telomeres. Telomeres protect the chromosomes from damage and cell death. The more damage and cell death that occurs, the older you’ll look. Exercise also boosts your circulation, which sends oxygen and nutrient rich blood throughout your system and to each cell. Exercise also helps flush cellular debris out when you sweat.

  • Getting adequate sleep can help you look refreshed and renewed each day. When you sleep it boots HGH—the human growth hormone—that’s necessary for healthy skin, strong nails and beautiful hair.
  • Avoid stress, learn meditation or workout to burn off the hormones of stress. Cortisol interferes with the production of collagen, which you need for supple beautiful skin.
  • Quit smoking if you smoke. Smoking narrows the blood vessels, including in your outer layer of skin. That means less blood flow gets to the cells, which causes a reduction in nutrition and oxygen.
  • Drink plenty of water. Even mild dehydration can cause cellular build up, dry skin, psoriasis, premature wrinkling and discoloration.

Benefits Of Walking

Benefits Of Walking

If you want to start an inexpensive and easy way to start a fitness program, try walking. It could be the first “step” toward fitness. There are a lot of benefits of walking and it doesn’t have to take a lot of time. In fact, studies show that you can break your workouts into ten minute sessions and get the same benefits as you would doing it continuously for a half hour. You’ll improve your heart health when you walk more and that’s just the beginning.

Build your bones with a weight bearing exercise.

Osteoporosis, reduced bone density, occurs more frequently in older women. Just like strength building exercises, weight-bearing exercise, like walking, can help slow the loss of bone. You’ll decrease your risk of stroke and can manage high blood pressure better when you walk. It also helps reduce stiffness, joint and muscle pain, as well as being beneficial to diabetics. Walking also helps shave off the pounds and obesity is the leading cause of preventable deaths, surpassing smoking several years ago.

Make your walk brisk to get the most benefit.

What is brisk for you, may not be brisk for someone else who is fitter or less fit than you are. That’s why adopting a definition that accounts for fitness differences is important. Brisk means that you can walk and still are able to talk, but singing would be out of the question. While you might puff a bit, you still can navigate the walk easily. One morbidly obese man was told he would die if he didn’t lose weight. He started out by walking. He could only go out the house and down to the street initially, but as the months passed he managed to go around the block, then further. He lost hundreds of pounds and now runs marathons. Always keep your walking safely within your fitness level.

Make some lifestyle changes to get more exercise.

Maybe you do have a really crowded life, but modifying a few things can help you get in more exercise. Remember it only takes ten minutes at a time to reap the benefits. Start by parking further from the store and walking. If you have to take the elevator anywhere, skip it and take the stairs. If your destination is on a high floor, use the stairs as far as you can and take the elevator the rest of the way. The same is true for going anywhere, especially if you use public transportation, get off a few stops early and walk the rest of the way.

  • Make your walk an appointment at the same time each day. Just like any exercise program, you’ll be more apt to maintain it when you feel it’s important and schedule it into your day.
  • As you get fitter, make your walking path more challenging. Take a route with hills or increase your distance or time spent walking.
  • Focus on posture when you walk. It’s important to have good posture. If you walk with a friend, check each other’s posture while you walk.
  • Walk slowly for a warm up and transition to a faster walk as you go, slowing it as you come near the end for a cool down. You can make your walk high intensity training by alternating between a fast walk and a recovery or slower walk.

How To Make Time For Workouts When You Don't Have Any Time

How To Make Time For Workouts When You Don’t Have Any Time

I see a lot of busy people in Phoenix, AZ, and many of them feel they can’t make time for workouts. I love helping people get fit and while I firmly believe that if you schedule a workout with a trainer or in a small group, you’ll automatically fit it into your schedule, I don’t walk in the shoes of every person who may be juggling a job, child and other responsibilities. So for those people, here are some tips to help you get or stay fit, even when life tries to dictate otherwise.

Look toward early morning for your workout.

The obvious choice is to rise earlier and exercise then or workout later at night, after all your tasks are done and the kids are in bed. It was once thought that exercising at night would rev up your system and make sleep impossible. That’s been proven false. In fact, it burns off the hormones of stress, which helps you fall asleep. So whether you’re an early bird or a night owl, find your best time and put in the work. You’ll be glad you did.

Break down your workout to several ten minute ones you can do throughout the day.

One study found that walking 30 minutes a day all at one time did no more good than breaking down that walking to three 10-minute sessions. Both provided the benefits whether done at one time or throughout the day. Break your workout down to several ten minute sessions and put them in your schedule when you have a few minutes to spare.

Workout with your family.

There’s a lot of studies on childhood obesity and fitness. They all indicate that kids need to get more exercise and eat healthier. You control both. You don’t have to be torn between getting and staying fit and making time for family. You can do both at once. Make an hour a day family time when you all do something active. It could be as simple as a game of tag or basketball or a bit more complicated, like a complete workout. You’ll be instilling the need to stay active, while encouraging the good health of all participants.

  • Include exercise as part of your daily tasks. If you live close enough to work to run, bike or walk, do it. Walk to the grocery if it’s within a few miles of your home. Take the stairs or park further from your destination than you normally would. Anything that increases your exercise is good.
  • Switch your after work drink with colleagues to an after work workout. You can socialize, while keeping each other motivated. Workout partners hold you accountable.
  • Do you want time for date night with a spouse? Schedule your date night at the gym and follow it with a delicious healthy meal.
  • If you take time to watch TV or follow friends on social media, multitask, or skip it entirely. Use that time for exercise, either in conjunction with the activity or instead of it.
