APRIL Wellness Tips

Apples contain a soluble fiber called “pectin” that helps draw cholesterol out of your system. Shoot for an “LDL” number under 100 mg/dL.

Prevent back pain by including hip mobility drills, foam rolling, and glute strengthening/hip-dominant exercises in your training regimen.

Record all your workouts in an exercise journal. People who keep a written track of their training sessions typically succeed at higher rates than those who don’t.

Implement specific work:rest ratios as a means of progressing your fitness levels. Too many people in the gym, in my opinion, rest too long between sets based on the intensity of their workouts.

Learn new foods to try to expand your palate and diversify your macronutrient intake. Previously found in only specialty stores, selections like Quinoa, Chia Seeds, Bison, and Almond Butter are delicious and nutritious!
