SBSC Fit Tips: Glutamine For Weight Loss #PoweredBySaturnSupplements @SaturnMuscle

What is Glutamine?

Glutamine Body Protect

Glutamine is the most abundant amino acid in your body. Glutamine aids in metabolizing body fat and supports muscle growth. During intense training, Glutamine levels become depleted. This decreases your strength, stamina, and recovery. It can take up to 6 days before your body can reproduce adequate amounts of Glutamine. This is why supplementation is so important!

So how does Glutamine help with weight loss? When you are overweight, your body needs more glutamine than normal. If it doesn’t have enough glutamine in the system, the body breaks down the muscle tissue to get the extra amino acid. This is when you start to lose muscle mass. Losing muscle mass slows your metabolism. By having enough glutamine in your system, you can lose weight and maintain muscle mass. Plus, glutamine shows great promise for dieters, diabetics, and anyone trying to lose weight or battle the fluctuating blood sugar levels that lead to carbohydrate cravings.

Glutamine is commonly marketed to body builders because it has been shown to enhance muscle recovery, display anti-catabolic behavior, increase protein synthesis, and muscle hydration. It is a vitally important supplement that should be used by every training athlete.

Other benefits of glutamine supplementation include…

  • It promotes gastrointestinal health.
  • Speeds up the healing of wounds, and is of great use as a “surgical recovery” supplement.
  • Boosts the immune system.
  • Protects your liver from damaging effects of chemotherapy.
  • Curbs the desire to consume alcohol.
  • Is a building block of several important neurotransmitters supplementation may contribute to enhanced brain function.

Saturn Supplement’s Athena Women’s Series Glutamine Body Protect is the best pharma-grade Glutamine on the market.

Happy Monday! Change Your Thoughts, Change Your Life! #PoweredBySaturnSupplements @SaturnMuscle

You may not always feel like getting started, but push yourself through, get it done, and make it a Happy Monday!

This week I am 11 weeks out from the Las Vegas Classic. It has been a much better week for me. Zoe’s head has healed up quickly and to be honest, it never really slowed her down. As for me, last week was a low carb week. The beginning of the week I felt strong, but man, by Saturday, I was dragging!!! This week I carb cycle. Yesterday was a high day and I got a cheat meal to boot, so feeling strong and replenished. My body is taking to my training and diet very well.

20 weeks to 11 weeks

I am hoping that I can get my legs to start leaning out more in the coming weeks. I am aiming to actually have muscle separation , which is something I have lacked in the last two years. Slowly, but surely I am getting there!

Let’s get this week started strong with a little Lady Swole Monday…

SBSC Fit Tips: Beginners Guide To Starting Your Fat Loss Journey #PoweredBySaturnSupplements @SaturnMuscle

With the big Back To School Sale, we here at SBSC Fitness have been overwhelmed with questions on how and what is needed to get started on your fat loss journey. I compiled some useful information to help guide you through your journey. Today is just the beginning…

One of the main tips I have is don’t worry so much about weight loss per say. The scale is a very small tool. One that can be very discouraging if you obsess about the number. Instead of weight loss, think fat loss….

Don’t be afraid of the weights. Many think that picking up dumbbells means you will get big and bulky.This is far from the truth. I have nothing but respect for female bodybuilders. I have a ton of friends who are actual bodybuilders. I can tell you from their experiences as well as my own, it takes more than lifting heavy to get that big! Lifting weights does not mean you will hulk out. What you actually get, is the lean and toned look. Not to mention the more muscle you have, the more fat you burn. Pick up the weights and don’t be afraid to go heavy!

Find a good multi vitamin. When you are losing fat and even when you are eating at maintenance, you are most likely not getting all of the proper vitamins and nutrients that your body needs. You want your body to be running optimally in order to lose fat effectively. Choosing a quality multi vitamin is important. The one I recommend to my clients is Saturn Supplement’s Vita-Plex. It is a liquid-filled chlorophyll-based capsule and contains a 42 Fruit & Vegetable Blend as well as CoQ10, Vitamin D3, Wheat Grass, Acai, Blueberry, Grape Seed, Panax Ginseng and a host of supporting nutrients including AntiOxidants, Electrolytes and nutrients that fortify Hair, Skin & Nails. VitaPlex is perfect for both Men and Women and makes an excellent source of nutrition for everyday health.

Vitaplex

There is a such thing as not eating enough. This seems to be one of the biggest issues most of my clients have. One of the first questions I ask is about eating habits. Most tell me that they eat WAY too much. When we get down to brass tacks and they begin tracking their foods, we find that many have been under eating. Although it is true that you need to be in a calorie deficit to lose fat, if your body has plateaued and your calories are already too low, you have no where to go. This is where making sure you are eating properly ie; getting plenty of fiber, protein, and the perfect balance of carbs and fats comes into play. Starving yourself will NOT get you results. Speaking of protein, this is another issue that clients have. Many are not consuming anywhere near the amount of lean protein they need to help support fat loss. This is when I recommend a quality protein powder. I always suggest an Isolate whey like Saturn’s Pro 4100. It has one of the highest protein amounts per serving and is top of the line quality. It is not full of artificial flavors and fillers. You are getting pure lean protein.

PRO 4100 Hydrolyzed

Rest is just as important as your diet and exercise. If your body is not getting proper rest and recovery, your results will stall. For example, Zoe had an accident last week. She had fallen off of the gym daycare slide onto her head. She did split her head open and had to receive stitches, but is fine and doing great. Anyway, like any mother would. That night I was worried about her and stayed up most of the night checking up on her. I hardly slept a wink. I checked in with a friend who has been helping me prep this year and of course I woke up bloated and my weight was up over 5lbs. For no other reason other than my cortisol levels had skyrocketed from stress and lack of rest. SLEEP IS PART OF THE PROGRAM. I suggest getting at least 8 hours of sleep a night. If you can swing more, then get those ZZZ’s!!!

Motivation Monday SBSC Fitness Style #PoweredBySaturnSupplements @SaturnMuscle

Happy Monday!

This week marks 12 weeks out from competition. I am leaning out slowly, but I am leaning out. I am officially down 25lbs since starting my prep, which is awesome. This is the leanest I have been this far out from competition, so I am excited to see where I will be when it come stage time.

13886875_628852787290580_487911847994080802_n

This past week has been CRAZY!!! Zoe got hurt on Thursday at the gym daycare. She took a big fall head first off one of their slides and split her head open. She has never had a serious injury, so it was traumatic to say the least. Zoe has a very deep L shaped cut on her head. We are still unclear what exactly made the cut. The equipment was searched and we couldn’t find anything that looked like it could have done the damage. Zoe was a rock star about the whole thing. Fact is, I probably cried more than her ha ha. When they came to get me She was covered in blood and we had a hard time locating the cut. Zoe has a ton of very thick curly hair. What I found, was what I thought was just a small, but deep cut. Her matted bloody hair had actually not only hid the size of the cut, but also held it together ill we were able to get her to the doctor. Once they had cut her hair away from the wound it opened up to a HUGE gash. Zoe sat really well while they numbed her and sewed her head back together. Asking frequently if they were done yet ha ha. We also received some other big news that I can’t share just yet, but overall the whole week just had me frazzled.

Needless to say, I am excited to start a fresh new week!!! In case you have missed the memo, SBSC Fitness is having a HUGE 50% off sale on our 12 week training programs. With the kiddos headed back to school, we figured it’s the best time for you to get refocused on your goals! I am booking up fast, so be sure to get signed up today!

SBSC Fit Tip Rest And Recovery #PoweredBySaturnSupplements @SaturnMuscle

Rest and Recovery are a very important and often overlooked and underutilized. I am guilty of not taking days to allow my body to benefit. Rest and Recovery should always be part of the program…

Image result for rest and recovery is important

Now rest and recovery are actually two different things. Rest is summed up by time not training and when you sleep. Recovery is much more detailed. It includes hydration, nutrition, supplementation, self myofascial release, stretching, etc. Basically allowing your body as a whole to repair itself, be it hormonal, neurological, and structural.

Without allowing your body to get enough rest and recovery, you can stall your results. Whether you are trying to lose fat, or gain muscle. Both require your body to be able to reset and refuel. These are the basic elements of proper rest and recovery…

Sleep ~ Sleep allows you to rest AND recover. You should aim for 7-12 hours a night. Adequate levels of sleep help to provide mental health, hormonal balance, and muscular recovery. Most athletes should aim to get at least 10.

Image result for Zzz Sleep

Hydration ~ Adequate hydration is something I drill into my clients. It is a critical part to your recovery, health, energy, and performance. It also helps you lose weight and have healthier skin and nails.

Nutrition ~ I am a firm believer in everything in moderation.  Meaning if you are not training for a competition, the 80/20 rule is awesome to follow. Meaning 80% healthy with 20% live a little. Your nutrition needs to be balanced. Your food choices will either help your body or destroy it. I find most of my female clients actually do not eat enough. They ALL tell me they over eat, but when we down to tracking their macros we find that many are starving. make sure you are properly fueling your body. I promise you will see better results!

Supplementation ~ Certain supplements can speed up and or aid in the process of recovery. We have all had DOMS or Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness after a grueling workout. For some, it is enough to keep them from getting back into the gym. These are supplements I personally use to help speed up recovery, so I can get back to training for my goals!

Vitamin C – This powerful antioxidant flushes your muscles of lactic acid and boosts the production of collagen to help repair skin tissues, tendons, and blood vessels. Due to my grueling training program, I take Saturn’s C-1000 Complex 3 times a day. It’s a Time-Release formula of super antioxidant Vitamin C with a unique host of supporting nutrients including Citrus Bioflavonoids, Rose Hips, Orange Peel, Lime Oil, Acerola and Quercetin-Truly one of the most unique Vitamin C complexes available!

C-1000 Complex

Vitamin D – This builds strong bones and muscles by aiding in your calcium absorption. It also regulates your immune system and reduces inflammation. Best source of Vitamin D is from Fish Oils. Saturn’s Cholest-Omega provides a premium marine lipid concentrate of fish oil. Fish oils contain a wealth of nutrients including an essential blend of EPA and DHA Omega 3.

Cholest-Omega

B Vitamins – There are 8 different B Vitamins that are essential to recovery. They break down proteins and carbs, boost muscle repair, and decrease muscle cramps and soreness. Saturn’s B 100 Complex covers all your daily requirements of B Vitamins. It’s is designed to provide a single-source combination of the B vitamin family, including folic acid. This time-release B complex mimics natural sources of these compounds as found in yeast, green vegetables, and meats.

Monday Funday! #PoweredBySaturnSupplements @SaturnMuscle

I’m always excited to start a new week! Happy Monday!!!

I am a firm believer of a positive attitude. If you think today is gonna suck, then you are gonna have a bad day. Change your mind, change your outcome!

This week I am 13 weeks out from my next competition. I had a photo come up in my Facebook memories over the weekend. I was 9 weeks out in the photo from last year’s competition. I struggled in prep last year. I gained WAY too much in my off season and had a hard time losing the fat. This year I took a much more controlled approach to off season and it paid off for me greatly!

9 weeks vs 13 weeks in one year

Seeing how much leaner I am at 13 weeks out vs 9 weeks out last year has a fire lit inside me. My whole training program and nutrition has been changed this prep and I am taking a completely different approach with some guidance and it is paying off!!! I can’t wait to see the continuing changes in my body over the coming weeks!!!

My clients are also kicking ass!!! I can’t force people to sign the photo release forms ha ha, but man I wish I could! I have so many who have made HUGE progress over the pass 8 weeks and I would love to share them all. This lady below has been one of the leaders in fat loss. She has made such awesome progress in strength, muscle growth, and fat loss. I strive to see my clients succeed on their journey as I have my own. I know it can be a long and difficult road and I am honored to have been chosen to walk it along side each and everyone of you!!!

Let’s get our motivation for the week! As always I like to kick things off with a little Lady Swole Monday…

Another Month Down. Hello August! #GoalSetting

As much as I hate how fast time flies, I am still counting down the days till I am back on stage.

Made some HUGE changes in my diet and training in July. August will be no different.  I am aiming to be more conditioned this time around. Every year I have taken a different approach to contest prep and I am excited with the direction I am taking this year! Over the next 13 weeks I plan on seeing some major changes in my physique. I have been training long and hard and I know it will only get more difficult from this point on, but I am more than ready to meet the challenge!!!

I encourage everyone to set small goals monthly to help you achieve your big goals! Whether you post on them online or on your fridge, post them somewhere, so you can remind yourself daily and hold yourself accountable. These are my goals for the month of August.

Goal One ~ Stay Focused ~ With my weight training, cardio, and conditioning training, my gym time averages about two hours a day. Some days feel harder than others. I know as my prep continues, it isn’t going to get easier. I need to aim to stay focused on the end goal!!!

Goal Two ~ Rest ~ If you know me well, you know I hate to take rest days. This year with my training program amped to the max, I need to rest when I can. I now have two scheduled days off from weight training. It is hard for me, but I know my body needs it!

Goal Three ~ Quarter Turn To The Right ~ It is never too early for posing practice. Although tweaks have to be made as my physique changes, practicing is still imperative. My posing has always been one of my major issues. Last year I thought I had it perfect and of course took last second advice from someone backstage and ended up messing up my back pose. This year I need to stick with what I already know. I am blessed to have the help of IFBB Pro Beckie Boddie. We met at the Las Vegas Classic last year. She trains at my gym, where we started talking. Super sweet lady, with TONS of knowledge!!! She has been a massive help this year!!!

Goal Four ~ School Shopping ~ Zoe has been getting lessons at home since she was a baby, but this will be her first official year in school. I still can’t believe we have a kindergartner!!! Like I stated before, she will still be at home for school, as we have opted for online public school. They have shipped some of her supplies, but we still have some things we need to go get. School shopping will be fun!!!

Goal Five ~ First Day Of School ~ Zoe’s first day of school is August 29th, so both she and I need to get prepared. I have all her lessons scheduled and on her online planner for this year. I need to go over each day and make sure she and I know exactly what she is doing and are prepared. It will take some time to get use to, but we are both very excited for this school year!!!

Hope you all have your goals set for the month and are prepared to kick ass!!! Your big goals are easier to achieve when you take smaller steps to accomplish them!

If you are looking for nutrition, training, supplementation guidance, and/or someone to keep you accountable, SBSC Fitness is your place! We strive to see each and every one of our clients meet success! Start your journey today CLICK HERE

July Goal Recap

Well July went by in a blink! Seriously, if time could slow down, that would be great!!!

My July Goals, albeit simple to state, were difficult to accomplish. Each goal had it’s place in the big scheme of things. I am doing my best to chip away at my goals to achieve my dreams!

Goal One ~ Keep The Fire Burning ~ Whenever you are working hard towards something, it is easy to get discouraged and have the feeling that you want to quit. We are all guilty of it with something in our lives. Competing and placing this year means the world to me! A national qualification is something I have been working hard for years to accomplish. Staying focused and keeping the fire burning has been important. Especially on days when I am tired and hungry. This month I have stayed strong and pushed through every obstacle that was thrown my way!

Goal Two ~ Practice, Practice, Practice ~ Just as being aesthetically pleasing is important, so is being able to present yourself on stage! Having perfect poise, stage presence, and being able to showcase your hard work perfectly is imperative. Last year I felt like my posing was great, then I let someone critique me prior to going in front of the judges and I confused myself, over thought it, brought my arms back and ruined my back pose. This is something I am working hard to improve this year and am blessed to have the assistance of an IFBB Pro to make sure I have it perfect this year!!!

transformation tuesday

Goal Three ~ Hubby Support ~ I mentioned last month that there were some big changes in the Broadbent household. As I mentioned on Monday, my husband decided to take the leap from a career he wasn’t crazy about into something he is passionate about. Change is always a bit scary, but in most cases, very worth it! He was given the opportunity to take a management position with a gym. It is a huge change from managing mattress stores. One that we are all very excited about. He started studying for his NASM CPT a while back to help me with SBSC Fitness. Now it will help him with his career in the fitness industry too!!! I am so proud of him for chasing his dreams!!! We made a goal outline for both of us and it is awesome when things start to come together!!!

Goal Four ~ School Enrollment For Zoe ~ School starts on August 29th, so getting Zoe enrolled was a top priority. She is going to be attending public online school. It’s like homeschool in the aspect that she can do the work from home, but I am not her teacher per say. She still has a home room teacher that we both will be in constant communication with. The school still provides the books and curriculum I just coach her, when she need guidance. They still have field trips and live lessons where she can meet and interact with her classmates. It’s a pretty awesome set up really. One of the many reasons we chose online schooling is we are unsure when we will move again. Yes, even though my hubs has a new career, we will still have at least one more move planned for the future. 😉 We want to buy a house and settle down, but not quite sure Vegas is where we want to do that. A beautiful city with wonderful people, but we miss the snow already ha ha ha. Not to mention we will start traveling more for my competitions. Online schooling will allow her to stay on track, no matter where in the country we are. Back to Zoe’s education…she and I are both very excited about this new chapter in her life! I know it’s a blessing for me to be able to continue to watch her grow and develop into a little lady. Some may not agree with our choice. We love online schooling and think it is perfect for our family!

Image result for connections academy

Goal Five ~ Client Successes ~ My ever growing client list has me gushing with pride! So many success stories and clients just rocking their journeys!!! I love helping people love themselves again. I love helping people lead more healthy lifestyles and hearing that they have the energy to play with their kids again and can fit into clothes they haven’t worn in years. To see their smiles weekly is probably one of the best things ever!!! I have a couple of openings left for August/September. If you are looking for accountability, guidance, and affordable customized one on one personal training, check out SBSC Fitness. We strive to see you succeed!!!

SBSC Fit Tips: CLA & Fat Loss #PoweredBySaturnSupplements @SaturnMuscle

 

CLA, also known as Conjugated Linoleic Acid, is an omega fatty acid, a “good” trans fatty acid, and one of the two essential fatty acids that help increase your body’s metabolic rate. Typically found in animal fats and dairy, but also consumed in supplement form.

Many take CLA as a stimulant free weight loss supplement. Taken to aid in fat loss while still building muscle. You may be asking yourself, how a fatty acid can possibly help reduce fat while increasing lean body mass? CLA reduces body fat by increasing your basal metabolic rate. Basically, it helps the body convert food more efficiently into energy.  Pariza, a source from the  American Chemical Society stated, “it keeps a little fat cell from getting bigger.” therefore, CLA doesn’t decrease your overall body weight, but can alter the body’s fat-to-muscle ratio. In one study, Pariza found that those who stopped dieting and did not take CLA eventually put weight back on in a typical manner – about 75 percent fat to 25 percent muscle. Participants who stopped dieting, but kept taking CLA, also gained weight, but at a 50-50 fat-to-muscle ratio. Another study in The Journal of Internal Medicine Research said that CLA reduced body fat in healthy exercising humans of normal body weight. Research in the International Journal of Obesity showed that CLA reduced abdominal fat in obese men, and Louisiana State University scientists showed up to an 88 percent reduction in the body fat of male mice who were fed CLA over a period of six weeks.

Many think they can just try to gulp down several glasses of whole milk each day. Unfortunately, you probably won’t be getting enough CLA. Changes in livestock feeding practices over the last 50 years have largely removed naturally occurring CLA from our diet. This is where supplementation comes in. CLA in supplement form is touted as the healthiest way to get CLA because they are manufactured to contain a specific balance of biologically active CLA isomers, or chemical compounds.

During contest prep, I personally take 1000mg of CLA 3 times a day. I only take Saturn Supplement’s Pharma Grade Maximum Potency CLA. It is the best quality on the market, using Safflower oil vs sunflower oil. Safflower oil provides a better quality CLA. I have personally tried several brands on the market and hands down Saturn has one of the purest forms and I get results!!! Be sure when you check them out to use their 25% off code (25YEARS) to save on your total order!!!

SBSC Monday Motivation @SaturnMuscle

Happy Monday!!!

Wowzers! What a weekend!!! I kept a close eye on the USA National Show here in Vegas. So many ladies that I know and some I have competed with trying to get their pro cards. It is SO motivating to watch!!! I keep a close eye on those in contest prep, mainly because you can always learn something from them and because it is motivating to see driven people working so hard for their goals!!! Needless to say, I am pumped to get this week started!!!

Before I do, last week I was vague about some huge changes going on in the Broadbent household. My husband Josh has been working for Mattress Firm for years and decided to take a leap and change career paths. He has accepted a management position with 24 hour fitness. He has been studying for his NASM CPT and been wanting to join me in the fitness industry, as this is where both our passions lie. I am so excited for him and a very proud wife!!! He is chasing his dreams and reaching his goals.

Let’s get this week started with some motivation!!! As always a little Lady Swole Monday…

lsm13

Today is your day to get out there and work to get closer to your goals. I once looked at the ladies in gym, on stage, in fitness magazines, etc and said “I will never look like that, but if I could just get close, I would be happy.” I stayed the course. I stayed persistent. I worked everyday towards my goals and you know what? I do look like them now. I did what I thought I couldn’t possibly do. Now I am aiming higher. YOU can do it! Keep going, keep working, and I promise you will see results!!!

If you are in a slump or needing that daily accountability, or guidance. SBSC Fitness is currently accepting clients. You get not only one on one training, but knowledge to keep the results, customized training programs (I don’t do cookie cutter methods), macro nutrient guidance, and someone who wants you to succeed!

SBSC Fit Tips Give Your Body & Health A Boost #PoweredBySaturnSupplements @SaturnMuscle

Vitamin C is probably the most well known vitamin/nutrient.

Image result for vitamin c

And because our body doesn’t store this crucial nutrient, we need to make sure we consume it daily so the tissues in our body can grow and repair themselves. Vitamin C is a powerful and effective antioxidant that protects our body from free radicals. This is why you always hear people say to take extra Vitamin C during cold and flu season.

There are actually several benefits to adding some extra Vitamin C to your daily vitamin regimen.

Hypertension ~ It lowers the blood pressure and decreases the probability of hypertension as well as serious health problems that may accompany high blood pressure.

Weight Loss ~ It has been proven to help people lose fat and maintain healthy weight. Doctors have found that eating Vitamin C fruits lowers insulin. Thus, instead of storing sugar and converting it into fats, it uses it as a fuel that leads to weight loss.

Stress ~ Vitamin C helps the body deal with stress by reducing the elevated levels of stress, hormones and cortisol.

Skin ~ It increases the formation of elastin which thickens, protects and heals the skin cells. The thickening effect helps retain moisture, increases the skin circulation and plumps up the skin surface.

Hair Health ~ Vitamin C deficiency may result in dry hair and split ends. These conditions are  unfavorable for the regular growth of hair. It not only helps combat hair loss but also helps retain the natural color by preventing the premature aging of the hair.

Energy ~ It It aids in the production of dopamine in the nervous system and supports the adrenal function for increased metabolic energy.

I have found that store brand vitamin c just doesn’t cut it for me. I use Saturn Supplement’s C-1000 Complex. Saturn’s C-1000 Complex provides a Time-Release formula of super antioxidant Vitamin C with a unique host of supporting nutrients including Citrus Bioflavonoids, Rose Hips, Orange Peel, Lime Oil, Acerola and Quercetin-Truly one of the most unique Vitamin C complexes available!

C-1000 Complex

When you use quality products, you get quality results! I won’t trust my health to just any brand. Saturn has been in the health and fitness industry for well over 25 years and they pride themselves in only providing the best. When it comes to my health and progress, I wouldn’t settle for less than the best!

If you start strong, there is a great chance your week will end on the same note. Remember, you are not just rebuilding your body physically, but mentally as well. Everything you think is your reality. If you think negative thoughts, then you will have a negative outcome. The only way to get positive results, is to think yourself there. Change your way of thinking and you can change your life in every aspect, not just your physical body image.

Keep your focus, fuel your body, and power through your workouts with Saturn Supplements.

Calorie deficit is the way to cut fat, right? Well, with a calorie deficit, comes hunger pangs.

My family knows all too well when I am suffering from hunger pangs while in contest prep.

I try to spare them from my less than sunny disposition by following these tried and true tips.

One ~ Drink More Water ~ Water is not only amazing for you, but the more you drink, the less you want to add to your belly. next time you think you are hungry, guzzle a bottle of H2O and see if that helps!

Two ~ Increase Your Protein ~ Protein is known for making you feel fuller longer. Studies have shown that digested proteins, which create peptides, can actually block the MORs, which curbs the appetite. Specifically, these protein-created peptides send signals to the brain that are transmitted back to the gut.  The gut is then stimulated to release glucose, which suppresses the desire to eat. So when you feel a hunger pang coming on, grab your favorite protein shake! My go to is Saturn Supplement’s Smart Whey. The revolutionary Ion-Exchange manufacturing process produces a protein supplement that is 90 to 95% protein by volume. This purity makes whey isolate the most digestible protein available and is virtually fat and cholesterol free. It is by far the most desirable protein source to athletes. Each 35 gram serving provides you with 32 grams of pure digestible lactose-free protein enriched with L-glutamine and branched-chain amino acids. No other protein formula provides you with as much pure protein per serving.

Three ~ Add More Nutrient Dense Foods To your Diet. ~ Low calorie, nutrient dense foods like fruits and veggies are perfect to help you feel full. You can eat a ton of veggies vs other calorie laden food choices.

Four ~ Chew Gum ~ Sugar free gum is definitely a must when in a calorie deficit. For me, it gets me through my sweet tooth. Plus, I think my mind thinks because I am chewing something, that I am being fed, so I don’t think about eating.

Five ~ Invest In An Appetite Suppressant. ~ I think My Saturn Supplement’s Lipo-Ex is hands down my greatest weapon to fight hunger pangs. Not only does it stave off hunger pangs, but it is a metabolism boosting, thermogenic powerhouse! I swear no contest prep can be without it!!!

Monday Motivation Fresh Start Dive In! #HappyMonday @SaturnMuscle

Happy Monday!!!

I am always excited for Monday! It’s a fresh start to the week. Tie to refocus in on your goals and make your plan to reach them! My prep is going awesome! I have made some huge changes in my approach this year and I am excited to see what I will be bringing to stage.

Every year I have dreams about my competition during contest prep. Every year it has been a similar dream. Typically I forget to do something, like get my spray tan ha ha. Last night I dreamt that I won. It was a crazy dream. I didn’t just win my class, but both classes and overall. Not gonna lie, when the alarm went off for me to go to my morning cardio, I had a fire under my ass. I woke up with a smile, motivated, and determined to have that dream become a reality. To some it my be a pipe dream. To some my ambitions are too big. To me, this is life. Setting goals and working your ass off to achieve them. If we aren’t working towards bettering ourselves in every aspect of life, be it spiritually, financially, physically, etc., then we just become complacent and bored. I see no point in that. I want better for me, I want better for my family, and I will work till that happens. When it does, I will make new goals and work towards them. I will never settle.

It’s Monday folks!!! Let’s kick the week off right with some Lady Swole Monday…

SBSC Fit Tips For Energy, Hydration, & Focus During Your Workouts #PoweredBySaturnSupplements @SaturnMuscle

The keys of success to an effective training session are that you have energy to power through it, you stay hydrated, and you keep your mental focus.

Energy ~ One of the main elements to having an effective workout is energy. There are many ways to make sure your energy levels are at their peak when before you begin your training session.

  1. Make sure you are fueling your body with the right amount of carbohydrates, protein, and fats. Proper pre-workout nutrition will give you energy, stamina, endurance and muscle growth.
  2. Get your zzz’s. Make sure you are getting plenty of rest at night. Turn off your tv, phone, tablet, computer etc. and just go to sleep.
  3. Find a great pre-workout. I love Saturn Supplement’s PumpD’4 Performance. Powered by a proven source of pump-force agents, PUMPD’4 provides the body with a surge of energizing fuel. Each serving contains the perfect ratio of Agmatine Sulfate, Nitric Oxide, L-Citrulline and L-Taurine and is combined with Caffeine and other supporting energy-actives, making this the most intense pre-workout formula available.

PUMPD'4 Performance

Hydration ~ Hydration is often over looked before, during, and after training. In the gym, I see some sipping on water bottles, Others may or may not make the trek over to the water fountain. Rule of thumb, drink 16 oz before training, 32 oz during, and at least 8 oz post workout. If your workouts are 60 mins or longer, I suggest adding in an intra workout drink like Saturn’s K-Pump Hydrate To enhance the overall effectiveness of your workout, K-Pump is formulated with an impressive burst of muscle-building protein, enriched with amino acids. Making this a calorie burning, muscle building, nutrient replenishment, performance powerhouse.

K-Pump

Focus ~ Staying focused in your training can be crucial to your progress. We sometimes get caught up with people watching, some stay glued to their phones between sets, talking with friends, etc. Your focus needs to stay on the task at hand.

  1. Keep your phone out of your hands. The only time I touch my phone during my training is to mess with my music. Unless it is an emergency, everything else can wait till you are done. If your mind begins to wander during training, then you are not focusing on your fat loss or muscle growth goals.
  2. You are at the gym to train your muscles and last time I checked, most people did not have working their jaw line as a top priority. Saying hello to a fellow gym member is one thing, but keep the chit chat to a minimum, so you can keep your focus on your training.
  3. People watching can be amusing, but if you keep your head down and in the game, you will stay more focused on what YOU need to get done vs what they are doing or how they are doing it.
  4. Incidentally, Saturn’s K-Pump Hydrate also keeps your mental focus in check with it’s mental focus actives.

Stay in charge of your training and you will stay ahead of the game! For more information on supplementation, nutrition and effective fat blasting workouts check out SBSC Fitness on our HOMEPAGE. We can get you started on a plan where you won’t just see results, but you will sustain them!
