Posted by Lizelle Pool on Tuesday, January 26, 2010,

Do you ever feel like you want to throw in the towel out of frustration because you are training so hard, but not seeing any results? Many feel that way and we sometimes forget that the equation is just that, an equation. It is not just about training five times per week. It is not just about really pounding the treadmill in an awesome interval training or doing an intense superset type weight training workout! It is all about finishing the equation: 1 + 1 = awesome body. The first part is th...

What is the big hype about warming up?

Posted by Lizelle Pool on Tuesday, November 17, 2009, In : November 2009 

What do most of us do when we walk into any training facility? We run straight for our favorite machine and start pounding out the reps. Fantastic. The workout started with a bang and is probably going to end in a bang. One that is not going to end well for you though. Injuries in the general training public occur mostly when the fitness enthusiast do not warm up properly. The body needs to be prepared for a strenuous workout and if we fail to do so, we will never reap the benefits and reward...
