Spartan Life - 9 Scientifically Proven Ways to Grow Muscle Fast

A great read! I know i can definitely make changes to my diet/lifestyle to facilitate increased muscle growth. #spartan Speed up your workout’s muscle-building benefits with these science-approved strategies.

The word of the day is... re-hydration. How do you do it? I was browsing in Whole Foods today and came across Fit Aid. They give this out after the Spartan Races and I just love it! Cool to see it in a store so I bought one. Yum! Dana I'd love your take on this product! I also purchased a couple of single serve Electrolyte powders (365 Everyday Value Electrolyte Plus+ and Ultima Replenisher) to try them out for taste. Between my normal Les Mills teaching schedule and my Spartan Race training I'm sometimes doing two hours of cardio/cardio and strength training a day and the one thing I know I'm lacking in my regime is adequate re-hydration. You can tell you're in trouble when sweat runs in your eye and doesn't sting or doesn't taste salty. Will keep you posted on how the two products I plan to try taste and perform. Watch this space! If you've got a product you love then let me know what it is! #kaikaha #fitaid #reyhrate #fitandthirsty #lesmills #spartantraining #reebok #polar

Last Tuesday night working out at American Barbell Clubs in Santa Clara with my client. His previous Bench Press record was 175lbs and here he is pushing 185lbs! After this we went on to 195lbs and then hit 1RM at 200 even! This is what hard work, dedication to your workouts and a seriously positive mental attitude can get you! Way to go Lakshman!! Check out that smile at the end!! 😊 #gains #reebok #raisethebar #bebrave

LittleThings: DIY

Little tip for the day!! I personally use an avocado saver but that only works when you have half of it to save.

I've always thought my trick of lemon juice was the best, but this is enough proof for me!

Saw my last client at "Gold's Gym" this morning as tomorrow the four in San Jose officially become American Barbell Clubs. It just so happened that we were matching too!! #friyay #byebyegolds #kiakaha

Les Mills - BODYPUMP and Bone Density

Making stronger bones with BODYPUMP! Research proves a little lifting goes a long way with bone health

[11/24/16]   This week I ran a type of unintentional experiment using my polar HR monitor during my LES MILLS BODYCOMBAT classes. I wore it for class on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday where i taught the exact same class each time. The calorie count went as follows; 603, 589 and 579 showing that you can't do the same workout time and time again and expect to get the same results. This is why as Instructors we must keeping switching up our releases and as a trainer we provide variety and challenge for our clients so their bodies continue to adapt. Will keep you posted as to the calorie count on Monday! Happy Thanksgiving! #lesmills #reebok #livewithfire #polar #listenstoyourbody

Last weekend I completed in my first 2016 Spartan Race after taking over a year off. It's funny how when you don't do something for long enough you stop missing it. At Saturday's Sacramento Spartan Super I reignited my passion for the race and seriously fired up my competitive spirit. I now can't wait to enter another one! This time I'll have more time to train and be ready to kick some butt on the course. One of the coolest things about the race was wearing my Polar HR and seeing my stats at the end, including burning 1559 calories! It was hard to fuel the huge rise in metabolism after the race and I was in the kitchen wide awake at 3:45am the next morning looking for food! Until next time Sparta! #AROO #polar #listenstoyourbody #reebok #reebokathlete #livewithfire #spartansuper #dowhatyoulove
