Paleo is a term that is being thrown around pretty loosely these days---everyone and their uncle is doing some type of "Paleo" eating. Is it the next fad or is there really something to this Paleo/Primal type of eating? Or, in some cases, it's a way of life. And just talk to a few "Paleo" people on social media and you'll see a variety of beliefs, philosophies, etc. from legumes allowed, dairy/no dairy, etc.
So without going into too much detail, what can you do TODAY, right now, to start incorporating Paleo Principles into your life? (And believe me, if you want all the research there are plenty of places to start researching all of this stuff and I have 2 key resources that I recommend you check out at the bottom of this post. However, I'm not enough of a paleo expert (or a doctor) to dive that much into some of the complicated issues and questions! lol
Ready for spring break? I know I am! Although I do fitness coaching on the side, run live Insanity workouts, etc. I do hold down a full time job as a teacher and band director. And like all of my fellow educators out there, we work hard during the school year and although we love our work in the classroom, when it's time for a break we enjoy ourselves :)
But that doesn't mean we let up too much on our workouts. However, traveling, eating out, family times, etc. sometimes doesn't fit too well with sticking with a certain workout program. So what can you do? Give up completely or just don't workout for that week or two that you are off?
Absolutely not! And that's where the Traveling Workout comes into play. Read on and leave a comment if you are going to try this while traveling!
Here's a guest post from our Team Beachbody Expert Steve Edwards, who's on the scientific advisory board for all of the TBB workouts. So go get your stretch on!
Most of us are aware of what we can do, but dedicating your life to exercise and healthy eating is easier said than done. Sometimes the best things in life are the simplest. Here's a quick way to feel great that's so easy you won't even know you're exercising.
Before we get started, let's talk a bit about "stretching." Generally, you hear that you need to warm up first. This is true. So, in theory, these are not stretches but exercises that help stretch you out. You don't need to warm up first. In fact, they are a warm-up themselves, as they'll prep your body for the rigors of each day. Enjoy!
Even though spring break is upon and most of us are heading outside (if the snow ever melts!) some of us will continue to hibernate in front of the TV until that last bit of snow is gone.
Now, keep in mind we're not encouraging any couch potato behavior. We'd prefer you pop in a P90X3 DVD and use your couch to hold your sweat towel but we all like to relax once in a while, right? So for those times (like when you are sitting down to watch an episode of Shark Tank or Resurrection), here are some options for you.
