⠀⠀

Joint pain can be due to aging, overuse of joints, a sedentary lifestyle, inflammation (due to a poor diet) and sleep deprivation.

⠀⠀

1️⃣ Try eating more foods that contain omega 3’s! Omega 3 can reduce any current inflammation that you have and slow down the body’s reaction to inflammation. Processed/sugary foods do the opposition; they activate cytokines, which lead to inflammation.

⠀⠀

2️⃣ Exercise – When you move, you get blood flowing to your joints which helps to strengthen surrounding muscles.

⠀⠀

3️⃣ Add turmeric to your diet! Tumeric has curcumin which is an anti-inflammatory food. Adding turmeric on top of my salads or on top of eggs has been my go to lately.

The Best Workouts To Burn Fat!

The Best Workouts To Burn Fat!

⠀⠀

Although your diet is number one when it comes to whether you will lose or gain weight, by following certain exercise protocols, you will be able to burn fat more efficiently.

⠀⠀

Here are some tips:

1️⃣ Strategize your workout plan by combining exercises.

By choosing to complete exercises back to back that are of DIFFERENT muscles (ex quads and back), your body has to make the switch quick and get blood flowing from one part of the body to the other. Having to move blood from one part of the body to another requires work which not only keeps your heart rate up but it will be very beneficial for your metabolism.

⠀⠀

2️⃣ Add daily walks!

Of course you expend more energy and calories doing an intense HIIT cardio session but if you are in a caloric deficit and already training at high intensities, your body is already under a lot of stress. Doing TOO much isn’t always the best option as this is most likely going to produce excess cortisol. Walking is considered to be easy on the joints, and since walking is a parsympathetic activity, it will actually help you to relax and de stress.

⠀⠀

3️⃣ Include EMOM workouts! (every minute on the minute)

You will pair an upper body movement with a lower body movement. Every minute begins a new set. On odd minutes, you will do one exercise and on the even minutes you will do another exercise. For an example:

START your stop watch & perform 4 reps deadlifts

At minute 1 – 4 reps OH shoulder press

At minute 2 – 4 reps deadlift

At minute 3 – 4 reps OH shoulder press

⠀⠀

Any type of movement is better than no movement at all but if your goal is to maintain your muscle mass while losing fat.

Lemon & Ginger Water

Water with lemon & ginger.

⠀⠀

Water plays a huge role in almost every function in our bodies. It’s important to drink significant amounts of water if you’re looking to help accelerate your metabolism! I know drinking water on it’s own can be pretty boring so give this combo a try!

⠀⠀

Lemons are a natural detoxifier and ginger helps to regulate blood sugar levels. Having both lemon and ginger together, can assist in creating an alkaline state, which can reduce inflammation, improve your immune system, soothe your digestive system and by improving your digestive system your skin & hair will receive benefits too!

⠀⠀

Tip! Start off your morning with some lemon & water. Lemons are acidic in nature but very alkalizing in the body.
