I think every Fitness Friday is going to include a nutrition article, since nutrition is just about everything when it comes to changing body composition. You can’t out train a bad diet.
The best ab exercises? Think Big Lifts– Bracing with your core on big lifts like squats and deadlifts do more for your core muscles than a million crunches. Core was meant to stabilize and thats exactly what it’ll do during your big lifts.
Eat Smart, Get your Vitamins- Make sure you are getting all your vitamins and minerals. Any deficiency in any of them could hinder muscle gains or fat loss.
If you’re wondering how I find these articles, most of them are posted by other people that I follow, either on facebook or twitter. Some I just happen to come across. I don’t always find what i read informative, but when i do, i pass it on. Knowledge is power
