Portion Control

The battle for more food!!! Its a daily struggle that I and many other people face multiple times a day.  I go to the grocery store buy all this great stuff that I want to make and I never fail to over eat even though I portion out my food after I buy it.  Whenever I read about diets and things they always say something like 6oz of chicken or something, but who is really going to weigh their food before they eat it? I found this article helpful with sizing my portions so I thought I would share it. http://www.menshealth.com/nutrition/estimate-portion-size

Cluster Sets

So I posted previously about the shortcut to size workout that I was doing a few months ago.  Since that post I have recently finished the program and have just been doing whatever I feel like doing at the gym.  I started seeing results still for a couple weeks but recently I have started to hit the dreaded plateau.  To beat this I started looking online for new workouts to do and nothing really caught my eye.  Yesterday I came across an interesting article on menshealth.com about cluster sets.  If you are in the same boat as I am give this article a quick read and see what you think.  Ill post in a week or two after I give it a shot myself. http://www.menshealth.com/fitness/cluster-sets

Why Being a Morning Person Helps

Not a morning person? Neither am I.  I feel that people who can function enough in the morning to workout are just short of superhuman.  Everyone knows that one person that goes to the gym and 5 a.m. and is done with their workout before the suns up.  I just came across an article that may make some people at least think about working out a little earlier. http://www.bodybuilding.com/fun/8-benefits-to-working-out-in-the-morning.html
