You're Too Old For That | Age and Exercise Levels

You're Too Old For That | Age and Exercise Levels

February 27, 2020

When I was 5 years old I remember the utter disappointment I felt as my parents told me I was too young to join my older brother and his friends at the arcade. Now, in my 30’s, I am no longer hearing I am too young for that but get this: I’m now “too old” for that. Get out of here!! I’m a firm believer that people who lack the will or bravery to do something themselves are on a mission to sabotage the aspirations of others.

Let's face it, the effects of aging are real, I will concede that. Our bodies and brains do change as we grow older. BUT, the physical effects of aging can be fought off with proper nutrition, supplementation, and generally staying active. AND, the mental idea of aging is absolutely controlled by you. So, when you are confronted with haters, use that hater-ade as fuel on your mission to conquer your aspirations (and even prove them wrong on the journey). Countless men and women before us have done just that:

Mdrive New Years Resolution

6 Tips to Achieving Your New Year’s Resolutions

January 01, 2020

Another year, another calorie-filled holiday season, and another shot at slaying those New Year’s Resolutions! I just figured the generations before us created New Year’s Resolutions as a result of feeling guilty after an over-indulgent holiday. In reality, the origins of New Year’s Resolutions are rooted 4,000 years ago in Babylon. The ancient Babylonians pledged their allegiance to their gods in an 11-day festival celebrating the Nile flooding and crops renewing. They believed pledging their allegiance and repaying their debts would bring them good luck in the following year.

Julius Caesar is responsible for first changing the calendar year to begin January 1st, with widespread adoption later from Pope Gregory XIII in 1582 with the Gregorian calendar. The Romans named January after Janus, the two-faced god who symbolized looking back on the past and forward into the future.  

That’s deep, and that’s how we essentially arrived at today’s resolutions: we look physically and retrospectively into the mirror asking ourselves what we did and more importantly what we could have done better. I think we can all agree the paradigm shift from pledging to do better for others to pledging to do better for ourselves is a positive one. Change starts and ends with you.

Burning Fat With Thermogenics

December 06, 2019

Let’s be honest, most of us want to shed a few pounds. So, what we can do. To lose weight, you need to create an energy deficit by eating fewer calories or increasing the number of calories you “burn” through physical activity or both. We also hear the term “boost metabolism” as a way to shed pounds. Metabolism is the process by which your body converts what you eat and drink into energy and not fat.

You can burn more calories and boost your metabolism with:

  • Regular aerobic exercise. Aerobic exercise is the most efficient way to burn calories and includes activities such as walking, bicycling and swimming. As a general goal, include at least 30 minutes of physical activity in your daily routine.

If you want to lose weight or meet specific fitness goals, you may need to increase the time you spend on physical activity even more. If you can't set aside time for a longer workout, try 10-minute chunks of activity throughout the day. Remember, the more active you are, the greater the benefits.

  • Strength training. Experts recommend strength training exercises, such as weightlifting, at least twice a week. Strength training is important because it helps counteract muscle loss associated with aging. And since muscle tissue burns more calories than fat tissue does, muscle mass is a key factor in weight loss.
  • Lifestyle activities. Any extra movement helps burn calories. Look for ways to walk and move around a few minutes more each day than the day before. Taking the stairs more often and parking farther away at the store are simple ways to burn more calories. Even activities such as gardening, washing your car and housework burn calories and contribute to weight loss.

Now, if you are eating right and exercising but want a little more help with “fat burning” and “metabolism boosting”, look into thermogenic supplements.

No Excuse Workout: 5 Tips to attack your excuses

November 07, 2019

Do you ever feel like you’re grasping to find your drive? Just coasting through life one snooze button at a time?  Cowering to that inner voice inside telling you “10 more minutes” or “I’ll start tomorrow.”? The snooze button becomes self-sabotaging.  I get it, it’s a vicious cycle that I personally have fallen victim to.  Tomorrow turns into the best day to do something you don’t want to do today.
