Hot Fitness Tip of the week

According to the American College of Sports Medicine, consuming caffeine (which is found in coffee, espresso, tea, cola drinks, and chocolate) before exercising may increase your endurance and performance during both prolonged and short-term exercise sessions. They're not exactly sure how caffeine works with the body to improve performance, but a study showed that consuming the caffeine equivalent of between 2 to 6 cups of coffee one hour prior to exercise increased both the endurance and performance of elite athletes.

If you drink caffeinated beverages, drinking one before your workout may help you run or walk a little farther or cycle a little longer. Studies have shown that moderate caffeine intake - about 300 milligrams, the equivalent of three cups of drip coffee - is safe in most adults. There's conflicting evidence about whether caffeine has a diuretic effect (which means it helps eliminate water from the body). Whether you drink caffeine prior to your workout or not, you should drink plenty of water before, during and after your workout to remain adequately hydrated.

 
Words of Inspiration

What is Your Recovery Rate?

How long does it take you to recover from actions and behaviours that upset you? Minutes? Hours? Days? Weeks? How long? The longer it takes you to recover the more influence that incident has on your actions, the less able you are to perform to your personal best. In a nutshell the longer it takes you to recover the weaker you are and the poorer your performance.

The faster you let go of an issue that upsets you, the faster you return to an equilibrium the healthier you will be. The best example of this behaviour is found with professional sportspeople. They know that the faster they can forget an incident or missed opportunity and get on with the game the better their performance. In fact, most measure the time it takes them to overcome and forget an incident in a game and most reckon a recovery rate of 30 seconds is too long!

Imagine life is no more than a play, a drama and we each have a role to play in that drama. Your job is to play your part to the best of your ability and the better you play your part the more chance that you will inspire others around you to improve their performance. Each incident you face is a new sentence. Just put a full stop behind it and start again. Accept that every time you meet someone or have a conversation with a person on the telephone or even send an email it is a new incident.

Remembering the last occasion only keeps you in the past and stops you moving forward. Stops you seeing new opportunities. The next time you see the person that upset you, or you upset, is a new occasion there is nothing to be gained by continuing from where you left off.

Live in the present. Not in the precedent.

Big breakfast diet aids weight loss

New research from Venezuela and Virginia Commonwealth University shows eating a big breakfast filled with carbohydrates and protein then eating a low-carb, low-calorie diet the rest of the day can help you lose weight and keep it off.

Researchers compared their new diet with a strict low-carb diet in 94 obese women who were not physically active. Both diets were low in fat and total calories but had carbohydrates distributed differently.

The 48 women on the "big-breakfast diet" had 1,240 calories a day 46 grams of fat, 97 grams of carbohydrates, and 93 grams of protein. They ate a 610-calorie breakfast with 58 grams of carbohydrates, 47 grams of protein and 22 fat grams. Lunch had 395 calories (34, 28 and 13 grams of carbohydrates, protein and fat, respectively); dinner had 235 calories (5, 18 and 26 grams, respectively).
