8/24/12 - Paula's Eating/Exercise Journal: Monday

When your focusing on staying fit, cardio and muscle growth.  It's good to have a program with diversity and challenges.  This keeps you from loosing interest and your muscles from plateauing.  Fitness trainer Ezell Owen Jr. (NASM, AFFA, NFPT, BS in Wellness), stresses focusing to isolate the muscle, especially when using cable machines, or doing ab work.  He tells clients to focus on both the up and the down motions when using machines.This helps hit different sections of a muscle group (for example, triceps).  This helps you achieve a strong, well rounded shaped muscle.  "If your going to spend the time to workout, you should get the most out of each exercise, so focus! Don't get distracted by people, or stresses in your head."  I agree.  When you feel the burn after a really great workout, you feel jazzed, and pumped , thriving for more challenges!
