    How Long to See Workout Results Spokane?

    You probably didn’t start a new fitness routine just for your health. You want to see results, whether that means gains in strength, bigger muscles, or greater endurance. But exactly how much time do you need to put in, per session and per week, before you can tell it’s working? 1. Sessions don’t need to be marathons In fact, they shouldn’t be, unless you’re actually training for a marathon or other long endurance event. For goals of strength, hypertrophy (muscle growth), athletic speed, and general fitness, there’s a point of diminishing returns in terms of session length. “Perhaps the biggest misconception, when it comes to training, is ....

  • Personal Training in South Spokane - Catalyst Fitness - WHAT IS FLEXIBLE DIETING? IT’S ABOUT MAKING YOUR MACROS FIT

    WHAT IS FLEXIBLE DIETING? IT’S ABOUT MAKING YOUR MACROS FIT

    Despite the overall trend toward cleaner eating (little to no processed foods, limiting or eliminating “bad” foods like sodium and sugar, etc.), as well as our general desire for quality ingredients (such as organic, humanely-raised, etc.), an increasingly popular diet—called “flexible dieting”—favors focusing on quantity. The premise of flexible dieting is that you eat the right number of calories for you and in the right proportion of macronutrients. You calculate how much of the macronutrient categories you should be eating and then choose what to eat based on those targets. There are three macronutrients—protein, carbohydrates, and fat. As for ....

    Do You Lift, Bro? Most Americans Say Nah!

    In a first of its kind study in the American Journal of Preventive Medicine1, data from a nationally representative sample of US adults were used by investigators to link low-to-moderately frequent muscle-strengthening exercise (MSE) with fewer reported health conditions such as diabetes, obesity, and cancer. "This study is among the first to show that most US adults do not engage in MSE. We also demonstrate that as few as one or two MSE sessions a week result in fewer reported health conditions such as diabetes, obesity, and cancer, even after accounting for aerobic exercise levels," explained lead investigator Jason A. Bennie, PhD, Physically Active Lifestyles Research Group (USQ PALs), ....

    Parents, You Must Find Time For Fitness in Spokane!

    There is this myth that parenthood requires an absolute sacrifice of health, hopes, and dreams. Marriage must become passionless, purposeful work must be reframed as a necessary evil, and any individual pursuits must be abandoned. The reality is that self-neglect is the worst thing you can do for your kids. First of all, if you allow yourself to become a fractured version, you will have less to give your children. You cannot pour from an empty cup. Taking time for your own health will magnify your positive impact. Our world often focuses on quantity, but quality time is what always matters most. Movement is not an activity you fit into your life. It is the essence of living. This is true ....

One of the best ways to recover from your day job is to use a simple foam roller to stretch out shortened, tense muscles resulting from poor posture.
