  • Are You OVER TRAINING ? (easy way to find out)

    Post From http://leehayward.com/blog/are-you-over-training-easy-way-to-find-out/

    Over Training is when the volume and intensity of a workout routine exceeds the individual’s recovery capacity. When this happens the individual will cease making progress in the gym, and may actually start to lose strength and back track.

    Just the other day I received a message through the TFB Workout App from one of my followers, “Ezekiel”, and he was asking…

    Hi Lee, I’ve been following your workout videos on YouTube and my current routine consists of: Monday – Chest, Shoulders, and Biceps. Tuesday – Back and Triceps. Wednesday – Legs. Thursday – Chest, Shoulders, and Biceps. Friday – Back and Triceps. Saturday – Legs. Sunday – Rest Day. Am I over training with this routine?

    Unfortunately, there is no universal guideline for “Over Training” because we all have different fitness levels, different work capacities, and other factors that can affect your rest and recovery.

    For example…

    Someone who works a physically demanding job will generally not be able to handle the same volume of weight training as someone who works a desk job.

    A new parent who is constantly being waken throughout the night by a crying baby will not get as much rest and recovery as someone who can sleep soundly throughout the night.

    Or if you are under a lot of stress at work, school, or family situations then this will have a negative impact on your recovery from your workouts.

    Now in Ezekiel’s case, the workout split that he is following is a good one because he’s training all major muscle groups in balance and proportion.

    But weight training 6 days a week maybe a bit much, depending on your recovery levels. In my own training I personally find that I make my best gains when I lift weights every other day (i.e. workout one day and then take the next day off).

    Or at most workout 2 days on and then take 1 day off. Scheduling in off days between workouts will allow your body time to fully rest and recover so that you can train harder during your workout days and thus make better progress in the gym.

    In order to find out if you are Over Training or not, I suggest that you monitor your progress and pay attention to the little cues that you feel from your body.

    Ideally you should be getting stronger on a regular basis with your workouts, now it doesn’t have to be huge gains, but you should see some form of measurable progress every week or two, such as getting an extra rep per set, adding another 5 pounds to your big compound lifts, or just being able to complete your workout routine feeling stronger and energetic, rather than feeling exhausted and drained. If you are making progress like that, then it’s unlikely that you are over training.

    However, if you are not making strength gains, or worse you even start losing strength (meaning you can’t lift as much or get as many reps as you used to). Or you are constantly feeling tired, sore, and exhausted from your workouts. Then these are signs that you maybe over training and need to give your body more rest time between workouts.

    Bottom line, if you are in doubt and feel like you’re not getting enough recovery, then schedule more rest days into your workout routine.

    During these rest days you can still keep active by doing low intensity activities such as going for a walk, stretching, etc. But don’t push it hard with high intensity weight training or high intensity cardio.

    If you’d like me to personally help coach you with your workouts and follow along with your progress to ensure that you’re on the right track to reaching your fitness goals, then I encourage you to join the Total Fitness Bodybuilding “Inner Circle” Coaching Club at: http://www.totalfitnessbodybuilding.com

    As a member of the “Inner Circle” you’ll get access to Brand New Workouts every single month that cycle through various levels of training volume, intensity, and frequency to help keep you on the edge for maximum muscle growth.

This allows you to make steady gains in muscle and strength month after month.

  • 3 Simple Ways to Make Your Blog Posts More Conversational

    Post From http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/ProbloggerHelpingBloggersEarnMoney/~3/FOwb-1nRBZs/

    make-blog-post-conversational.jpg

    This post is by ProBlogger writing expert Ali Luke

    You’ve probably heard that your blog posts need to be “conversational”.

    You may also have been told why: to create a sense of connection with your reader, keep them engaged, and make your blog sound less like a lecture and more like a discussion.

    That’s all true. But making your writing “conversational” can be tricky – especially if you come from a business or academic writing background.

    If your blog posts tend to sound a little dry and stilted, here are three simple ways to change things.

    #1: Talk Directly to Your Reader

    Write your post as if you’re talking a specific reader. Picturing an actual person may help – someone you know in real life, or who comments on your blog. You could even imagine you’re emailing them, or writing a Facebook post or comment.

    And use words like “I” and “you”, even though you were probably taught not to at school or work. When you’re blogging it’s totally fine to write from your personal experience, and to invite the reader to step into your post.

    Here’s an example from Jim Stewart’s post 9 Tips for Recovering Your Google Rankings After a Site Hack. (I’ve highlighted each use of “you” and “your”.)

    If your WordPress site has been hacked, fear not. By following these tips you can fortify your site and kick wannabe hackers to the kerb.

    And provided you act quickly, your WordPress site’s SEO traffic—and even its reputation—can recover within 24 hours.

    This is clear, direct writing that speaks to the reader’s problem. And it’s easy to read and engage with: it’s almost like having Jim on the phone, talking you through fixing things.

    Note: As Jim does here, always try to use the singular “you” rather than the plural “you”. Yes, you hopefully have more than one reader. But each one will experience your blog posts individually. Avoid writing things like “some of you” unless you’re deliberately trying to create a sense of a group environment (perhaps in an ecourse).

    #2: Use an Informal Writing Style

    All writing exists somewhere on a spectrum from very formal to very informal. Here are some examples:

    Very formal: Users are not permitted to distribute, modify, resell, or duplicate any of the materials contained herein.

    Formal: Your refund guarantee applies for 30 calendar days from the date of purchase. To request a refund, complete the form below, ensuring you include your customer reference number.

    Neutral: Once you’ve signed up for the newsletter list, you’ll get a confirmation email. Open it up, click the link, and you’ll be all set to get the weekly emails.

    Informal: Hi Susan, could you send me the link to that ProBlogger thingy you mentioned earlier? Ta!

    Very informal: C U 2morrow!!!

    With your blogging, it’s generally good to aim for an informal (or at least a neutral) register, as if you were emailing a friend. This makes you seem warm and approachable.

    Typically, you’ll be using:

    • Contractions (e.g. “you’ll” for “you will”)
    • Straightforward language (“get” rather than “receive” or “obtain”)
    • Chatty phrases (“you’ll be all set”)
    • Possibly slang, if it fits with your personal style (“thingy”, “ta!”)
    • Short sentences and paragraphs
    • Some “ungrammatical” features where appropriate (e.g. starting a sentence with “And”)

    You might want to take a closer look at some of the blogs you read yourself. How do they create a sense of rapport through their language? How could you rewrite part of their post to make it more or less formal? What words or phrases would you change?

    #3: Give the Reader Space to Respond

    Conversations are two-way, and that means letting your readers have a say too. If you’ve decided to close comments on your blog, you may want to consider opening up a different avenue for readers to get involved, such as a Facebook page or group.

    When you’re writing your post, don’t feel you need to have the last word on everything. You don’t have to tie up every loose end. It’s fine to say you’re still thinking about a particular subject, or that you’re still learning. This gives your readers the opportunity to chime in with their own expertise or experiences.

    Often, you can simply ask readers to add to your post. For instance, if you’ve written “10 Great Ways to Have More Fun With Your Blogging”, ask readers to contribute their own ideas in the comments. Some people won’t feel confident about commenting unless explicitly invited to do so, ideally with a suggestion of what they could add (e.g. “What would you add to this list?” or “Have you tried any of these ideas?”)

    On a slightly selfish note, if you’re not sure about the value of comments, remember it’s not just about your readers getting more out of your blog. Some of my best blog post ideas have come from a reader’s suggestion or question in a comment. And many other comments have prompted me to think in a more nuanced way about a particular topic.

    There’s no one “right” way to blog, and some blogs will inevitably be more conversational than others. If you’d like to make your own posts a bit more conversational, though, look for opportunities to:

    • Use “you” and “I”. Talk directly to your reader, and share your own experiences where appropriate.
    • Make your language fairly informal. Don’t worry about everything being “correct” – just let your voice and style shine through.
    • Open up the conversation by inviting readers to comment, or encouraging them to pop over to your Facebook page (or join your Facebook group).

    Have you tried making your blog more conversational? Or is it something you’re just getting started with? Either way, leave a comment below to share your experiences and tips.

  • Easy Paleo Cloud Bread with Just 3 Ingredients

    Post From http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/PaleoPlan/~3/LbyRaJVotHs/

    This post first appeared at PaleoHacks. You can see the original post here.

    Light and airy, this 3-ingredient cloud bread is easy to make and can be topped with anything from sweet jam to savory cashew cheese.

    These airy cloud breads can be transformed into anything your heart desires—from mini pizza to a BLT sandwich. While the original version includes cream cheese, we swap in a healthy mayonnaise to keep them dairy-free. All you need are eggs, Paleo mayonnaise, and a few pinches of baking soda.

    Start by beating egg whites and baking soda using a hand mixer until stiff peaks form. This takes about 3 minutes on high speed. Next, using a separate mixing bowl, whip together egg yolks and mayonnaise until smooth. Gently fold in the egg white mixture, careful not to deflate the foamy egg whites.

    Once combined, use a ¹⁄₃ measuring scoop to pour circles of the mixture onto a parchment paper-lined baking sheet. The circles will spread, so be sure to leave room in between. Bake for 25-30 minutes at 300°F. The bread should be firm and not jiggle in the center when done.

    Now for the fun part. Spread cloud bread with butter and strawberry chia jam for a sweet breakfast or top with your favorite pizza toppings for an Italian twist. For a quick BLT-style sandwich, smear with mayo and pile on arugula, tomato, onion, and cooked strips of bacon. You can also stir herbs like dried oregano and basil into the mixture when combining egg yolks and mayonnaise. For a sweeter bread, stir in a teaspoon of coconut sugar and ¼ teaspoon of cinnamon.

    Note: the texture fresh out of the oven is on the crisp side, but once the bread comes down to room temperature, the texture is soft and bread-like.

    P.S.: Since these cloud breads are small and round, they make a great grain-free alternative to English muffins!
