Okay guys I had a killer workout today on my Total Gym. Unless you have been living under a rock the last 15 years most of you all know the Total Gym is that exercise contraption that Chuck Norris and Christine Brinkley have been heaping praises about on late night infomercials for quite some time.
So is it just hype ?? I think you can find the answer to that when you look at Chuck Norris and his 70 yr. old Body. Yes, thats right Chuck turned 70 in March of this year. Prettty incredible, huh ??
Need more proof ? Well, after using it for 3 years myself now I can honestly say it is NOT hype but for real. The Total Gym will give you the workout that will produce lean muscle mass and burn the fat also. You can use it like circuit training and really hit both of these areas quite effectively.

I think a nice brisk Walk which I did later in the day after my Total Gym workout is quite an effective exercise regimen. personally I use the Total Gym one time a week and its about a 45 minute strenuous workout. Along with this I will do one other Workout that is composed of pushups, sit ups , pull ups etc..etc.. It is what I call my mini workout.
Remember guys as I have said over and over again it is about adopting a exercise lifestyle that you can manage to do week after week after week after week. If you can only Workout once a week with resistance then just do once a week.
But dont start off going in the Gym Working out 4 times a week and expect to keep that up for the long term. Chances are you wont and you will more than likely just quit altogether after you burn out. Its about pacing yourself and finding a SYSTEM that works for you.
Until next time guys, keep it churning and burning !!
Cheers to our Success,

Okay guys, I know that many of you took time out at the beginning of the year to set New Year Resolutions. And of course one of those being to lose weight
There are four basic underlying factors that cause obesity in people : lack of sleep, chronic stress, processed foods, and copious amounts of sugar.
First of all, lack of sleep affects two hormones, ghrelin and leptin. Ghrelin stimulates appetite and leptin tells us when we are full. When we do not get sufficient sleep our ghrelin levels rise making us feel hungry. Lack of sleep also lowers leptin levels and as a result we dont identify when we are full. The combination of these two effects makes us have an increased appetite with no clue of knowing when to stop.
Under stress, we release the hormones cortisol, norepinephrine, and epinephrine which power our fight or flight response to perceived danger.With persistent or constant stress our cortisol levels remain high.This continued elevation in cortisol levels results in prolonged appetite and overeating.
In America we process foods to a degree that is so unhealthy. Processed food typically contain refined carbs, sugar, bad fats and oils, chemicals , and excitotoxins. Collectively, these substances cause the release of the
‘feel good ‘ neurotransmitter called dopamine. When we experience this dopamine and it makes us feel good , we want more of that good feeling so we eat more processed foods as a result. And it becomes a viscous and self destructing cycle.
Our consumption of Sugar had steadily increased every year in the last century. High Fructose corn syrup is one of those harmful sugars that is used to sweeten various food and liquids like soft drinks.
When it comes down to it folks, in order to lose weight and get healthy you need hormone and neurotransmitter balance, no toxic overload, and a elimination of processed foods from our diet. Along with this you also need to implement an exercise regimen on a weekly and monthly basis.
Essentially , this is really the only way to achieve the results many of you are looking for !!
