In this episode I take a step back to welcome any new years resolution people by giving a short introduction of M Factor Fitness theory. If any of them are still listening after that we cover why you shouldn't get dish towels, tooth brushes, underwear, socks, copy paper or spatulas to your significant other on Christmas. If you must, please don't count it against their Christmas/Hanukkah/Kwanza budget. This may be marriage saving advice for some of you.
I also share my color coding scheme for wrapping presents so you never give the wrong gift to anyone. So bookmark this podcast for December next year. Never happen? It happened to me this year.
Any fitness advice? Oh yeah. The self- destruct of the week is my new favorite source of material, Mr. Dolvett Quince of Biggest Loser fame. The "Biggest Loser" show have turned out better comedians than "Last Comic Standing" and today's example of a workout is no exception. Very funny except for the fact people will get injured trying to do it. Oh yeah and the fact it is a pointless workout.
Never to leave anyone hanging, I give you an alternative workout you can do on your own without equipment.
4 exercises, 4 rounds. Work up to 25 reps each exercise. after you reach that, change the exercises to harder versions and you have an easy to remember full body workout. I give tips on how to do all the exercises so you don't mess yourself up.
2. Push-ups (yes you have to do them)
3. Reverse Crunches
This is a circuit that will test cardio, build some strength and muscle endurance and burn calories.
1. 1 1/2 Squats
2. Downward Dog Push-ups
3. Mountain tops
4. Bridges with feet on a table.
Advanced ( high impact )
1. Jump Squats
3. Push-up into side plank combo
4. One legged bridges
Finally we look at the People magazine article where people have lost half their body weight and look for clues to help you.
