You see it all happened last Thursday evening.........
I've been working in gyms now for almost 15 years. I've lived through the Atkins Diet, I've suffered through the CrossFit Craze and I have battled the supplement industry's "Fat Burning / Muscle Building" propaganda for what seems like an eternity. As a Personal Trainer I've worked with hundreds of clients starting at all different fitness levels and all with whom have had many different training goals. As a fitness competitor I've tested just about every single weight loss/muscle gaining theory out there, from the ever so important "Post-Workout Shake" to the "Fasted Cardio is Best" test, and I'm ashamed to admit that I even once tried the whole "No Carbs After 6pm" rule for a few weeks......
Good Morning Fellow Fitness Enthusiasts!
I hope everyone is well and had an amazing weekend. I for one am looking forward to the week ahead as last week was one that I would like to forget and leave in the past. Actually come to think about it these past few weeks have not been the greatest for me either. Don't worry, I'm not going to sit here and air all my dirty laundry or treat my blog like a public toilet - That's what Facebook is for...... Oh SNAP!
