The other day I wrote a post about my issues with 30 day squat challenges which you can check out here. Now it’s really easy to point out flaws with something. But it’s another thing all together to do something about it. So I thought I would go ahead and create my suggestion for a 31 day program targeted at giving you an amazing butt. Now you will notice that this program isn’t every day like some programs. This is important to allow your body to recover and get stronger. Feel free to insert your own regular cardio or upper body workouts into the off spaces. If you want to try the program go ahead and download and print the images if you like for your wall. If you have any questions about the program my ask box is always open.
When you work out, you must eat more or less of certain foods to achieve your goals. And that is why supplements can be a great help, because they provide the right quantities of nutrients you need.
THE POST I’VE BEEN WAITING FOR!
This is why I take multivitamins, coq-10, green tea extract, fish oil, vitamin d, and cranberry daily
I have really mixed feelings about supplements…. But sure. This is an interesting graphic.
I agree that some of these supplements are great in order to increase your health, or any other positive aspect of your body. But please, these numbers are very misleading. Take vitamin A. This graphic says that one tablet of 2400 mcg equals 16 medium carrots. True. But do you need these 2400 mcg? No.. A 19-50 y/o female only needs 800 of them. Same goes for vit. B. 100 mg, says the tablet. Though you only need 1.1 a day. That’s 98.9 mg too much.. Which, bluntly said, you just pee out or depending on the vitamin/mineral it can even have negative effects on your health (think iron for example). When you only have to eat, say, a tablespoon of marmite, it makes that supplement not really that necessary, right? Like I said, some supplements are great. Many people -even I- don’t succesfully consume enough foods with folate or omega-3. But please people, don’t overdo it. Know your numbers. Too much isn’t good either.
Do the above routine 3 x through with 30 sec rest in between ea move and 1 min rest between ea set. End with a 10 min cardio blast. If you don’t have a treadmill do the FAT MELTING ROUTINE once through.
