SBSC Fit Tip: My Go To Contest Prep Supplements #PoweredBySaturnSupplements @SaturnMuscle

I have been using Saturn Supplement’s products exclusively for over 4 years. They are one of the top respected supplement companies worldwide, for their quality and product selection. They have been in business for almost 30 years!!! In the supplement industry, that is HUGE!!! I am grateful to be a part of the Saturn Muscle Team! They have helped me, not only grow in this sport, but have had a huge impact in improving my physique every year!!!

I do have a go to supplement stack that I take throughout my prep. When I am in a calorie deficit, my body is working harder. I want to make sure that I am providing my body with all of the necessary nutrients it needs as well as macros that have a hard time meeting. These are my go to contest prep supplements:

One ~ Protein ~ Like I stated earlier, I consume a moderately high amount of protein during contest prep. I eat most of my protein, but I also supplement some with shakes. During prep I choose Saturn’s Pro 4100 Hydrolyzed Protein powder. I do this because drinking protein shakes is convenient. It is easy to grab and go. I am getting lean, quality protein in every shake. There is no added fats or carbs. This is great when meeting my macro needs.  Bonus is that it is enriched with Branched-Chain Amino Acids and L-Glutamine. In addition, they have enhanced the overall effectiveness of this formula with their Full-Spectrum Vitamin / Mineral / Electrolyte cocktail. I know my body id getting exactly what it needs to fuel my muscles and keep me healthy and strong!

PRO 4100 Hydrolyzed

Two ~ Branch Chain Amino Acids ~ My go to is Saturn’s Aminos Pump 50000. It is heads and tails better than any amino complex I have tried! My mental focus is improved. It is infused with Nitric Oxide, so the pump I get while training is insane. And the overall energy boost I get keeps me training at full force, which in contest prep can be hard to do! I drink these during my workouts and throughout the day. When you diet, your body becomes catabolic, meaning it begins to burn not only your fat, but your muscle as well. It also decreases the rate of protein synthesis. Dieting and working out changes the metabolic effects of your body. As you decrease your energy intake, you also decrease your glycogen storage. Your body will become tired and will try to use less energy while training. Your body will begin to burn your hard earned lean muscle for energy. Consuming BCAA’s will not only increase the rate of protein synthesis, but they also increase the cell’s capacity for protein synthesis. Even better, they increase the intensity of your training sessions. Therefore, you can workout harder for longer!

Amino Pump 50000

Three ~ Vitamins And Minerals ~ For this I take Saturn’s Outer Limits. They are not only packed with all of the essential key vitamins and minerals my body needs, but also packed full of pre-digested Amino Acids, BCAAs, Digestive Enzymes, Omega EFA’s, Sports Enhancers, Caffeine and other highly supporting muscle actives. When in contest prep, you are in a calorie deficit. This may mean that your body isn’t getting the proper nutrients that it needs t function properly. This is where a strong multivitamin is exactly what you need. These nutrients are not only vital to good health, but also required for strength training and growth. Outer Limits has over 60 muscle building nutrients per serving!

Outer Limits

Four ~ Creatine ~ Saturn’s Creatine Silk is part of my supplement regimen year round. I take anywhere from 20-35g a day. Creatine has so many benefits. Increased muscle strength and size, enhanced recovery, enhanced brain function, improved performance in high intensity work, just to name a few. Creatine benefits everyone, from athletes, elderly, children, and many more. It is always a highly recommended supplement!

Creatine Silk

Five ~ Thermogenics ~ I always get a lot of confusion about thermogenics. Many say, well I thought you said there are no magic pills? I will say it again, there are no magic pills. Without proper diet and exercise, pills will do nothing for you. I take Saturn’s Lipo Ex. They are an Ultra-Pure synergistic complex designed to enhance the body’s natural powder to utilize, energize and metabolize. I cycle them, 4 weeks on one week off. To allow my metabolism to rest and reset. I take them for several reasons. They stimulate your body’s central nervous system, this is why many get the jitters from them. They help promote lipolysis in the body, or the breaking down of body fat to be used as energy. They increase your mental alertness and act as a mild diuretic. With using the proper dosage, proper nutrition, exercise, rest, and hydration. These can be helpful during contest prep as your body begins to feel fatigue. It also gives a boost in fat loss. They are a small, but great tool during contest prep!

SBSC Fit Tips: Ladies Guide To Getting Lean #PoweredBySaturnSupplements @SaturnMuscle

I commonly get asked “how can I lose this? or how can I tone that?” As we are all different and lose fat in different areas first, we all have one thing in common, and that is that you can not spot reduce or target fat loss from any one area on your body.

Fat loss occurs as a whole. Your genetics will typically determine where you start to lose from. Most women I train as well as myself, lose from the top down. My bra size will go down before my jean size does. My belly, butt, and thighs are usually the last to tighten up.

It doesn’t mean that you can’t tighten those areas. It just means you will have to be consistent and most importantly patient. Here are some tips to help you along the way…

One ~ Pick heavy stuff up and set it back down ~ Yes ladies, I am talking about weight training. Lifting weights does not mean you will get bulky or turn into a man. That is an absurd misconception. It is difficult for a woman to grow large muscles, trust me, as that is actually my goal for myself lol. To get a lean and “toned” look, you have to have muscle built. When you see a lean woman with a shapely round butt, it is because she squats with weights. Lean toned arms…yeah she lifts heavy. It takes more than lifting weights for a woman to grow “man like” muscles, so fear not ladies. Adding muscle to your body is going to benefit you in ways you never imagined!

  • Improved muscle strength and tone
  • Weight management
  • Prevention and control of health conditions such as diabetes, heart disease and arthritis
  • Pain management
  • Improved mobility and balance
  • Improved posture
  • Decreased risk of injury
  • Increased bone density and strength
  • Reduced body fat
  • Boosted metabolism
  • Improved sleep patterns
  • Increased self-esteem
  • Enhanced performance of everyday tasks

Two ~ Stop Being A Cardio Bunny ~  Far too many women believe that you have to do hours upon hours of cardio to lose fat. This couldn’t be further from the truth. When you overload your body with cardio, you lose some fat, then begin to burn muscle. Have you ever looked at the difference between a sprinter and a marathon runner’s body? (FYI I am in NO way knocking the physique of a marathon runner, just noting the difference)

Most marathon runners have very little muscle, because they burn it all away. Sprinters tend to have a curvier look, as they can maintain the muscle they have built. High Intensity Interval Training or HIIT is a very effective way to burn fat, without sacrificing your muscle. Best part is with warm up and cool down, it can be done in 15-20 mins. My typical routine on a treadmill is 3 min slow/moderate walk as a warm up, switching to all out sprints for 30 seconds, rest (stand on the sides of the treadmill) 1 min 30 seconds, I do this for 3 rounds, then slow/moderate walk cool down. To up the intensity, I may add elevation with each round. It’s a great way to burn fat and maintain those curves.

Three ~ Stop Starving ~ Another reason women tend to have a difficult time losing fat is that they aren’t eating enough. I can’t count the times I ask my clients to give me an average of how much they eat a day and after monitoring for their first week, we realize they told me 500+ more calories than they were actually eating. When your body plateaus at such a low rate of calories, it becomes hard to lose the fat. Your body is already starving, because of being at such an unhealthy amount of calories. In these instances, I tend to reverse diet these clients back to a healthy rate. You may be asking if they gain weight. The answer in most cases is NO. For most the scale doesn’t move, or moves down slightly. What does happen, is that their body composition begins to change. With weight training and reverse dieting, they begin to see the fat melt away and muscles start to develop.

Four ~ Eat More Protein ~ Before coming to me, on average most of my female clients were consuming 55 grams of protein or less. Protein is a staple to adding lean muscle and helping you maintain a lean physique. I always recommend increasing the amount of protein you eat, especially if you are trying to lean out. Most women have difficulty eating more protein. That is when I begin suggesting supplementing it with a protein powder. Protein shakes are easier to get in when you aren’t feeling hungry, or if you are like me and busy, busy, busy. My female clients love Saturn Supplement’s Athena Series Women’s Pro Whey Advantage. It is specially formulated for women, with the extra vitamins and minerals we need to keep us healthy and beautiful! It is a delicious tasting easy-to-digest Hydrolysate Whey Protein formula that not only provides sound nutrition, but also nourishes other elements of the body which include Hair, Skin, Nails, Eye, Heart, Strength, Muscle-Tone, and Weight Management. Due to the purity of the hydrolysate form of whey protein, Women’s Pro Whey Advantage is Sugar, Fat, Cholesterol, Lactose and Gluten-Free.

Women's Pro WheyFive ~ Get Regular ~ I know we hate talking about poop, but I find that most of my female clients have issues with bowel movements. This goes back to not eating enough food and not eating near enough fiber. When tracking what they eat on their own, my female clients we averaging maybe 6-10 grams of fiber a day. This is NO WHERE NEAR enough. I have all of my female clients hit 20-25 grams of fiber a day as a minimum. Fiber, not only normalizes your BMs and reduces IBS issues, it also keeps you full longer, which aids in weight loss, it reduces your cholesterol levels, and helps control your blood sugar levels. This is another macro that some clients have issues meeting. I always suggest what foods will help as well as supplements like Saturn’s FiberMax. It’s a quick and easy way to supplement fiber into your diet, when you are having an issue reaching that daily goal.

FiberMax 1450If you are ready to get yourself on track and join the many who are seeing results weekly, check out my customized training programs. I send you daily exercise routines, developed just for you and your particular goals. It is sent to a phone app, which had detailed instructions and videos, to show you how to do each exercise properly. It is having your personal trainer with you no matter what time you train every single day. You also receive individualized macro nutrient set-ups and instructions to suit your goals. I update everything weekly as we have weekly check in’s to monitor your progress. I want my clients to succeed and I personally stay with each one, every step of the way!

SBSC Fit Tips: New Year New You! #PoweredBySaturnSupplements @SaturnMuscle

Every year thousands eagerly set their New Year’s Resolutions.

One of the top resolutions is to get healthy and/or get in shape. Many start strong and by 4 weeks in, start to revert back to old habits.

Not this year! This year SBSC Fitness and Saturn Supplements want you to start strong and change those old habits!!! We have compiled a list of tips to help you on your way.

One ~ Set A Start Date. Your goal needs a start date. For many it is January 1st or 2nd. No matter what the date, stick to it!

Two ~ Write Down Your Goals. I feel like writing down your goals and your intentions is like making a contract with yourself. Contracts are not meant to be broken, so write it all down and stick it somewhere you will see it everyday. It will help hold you accountable.

Three ~ Do Your Research. Whether you plan hiring a trainer or trying to do it yourself, be sure you do your research and do what will work best for you and your goals. Going in blindly can hinder results and frustrate you. When frustrated by lack of results many choose to quit. If you are looking for a personal trainer, SBSC Fitness specializes in fat loss. We have help so many on their journey from fat to fit! We are running our End Of Year Sale. You can save over $200 on SBSC online training programs. We will set you up with a phone app that has detailed videos and instruction of each exercise as well as your customized nutritional information. I am personally on call and easily reached on the app or email,to answer any question for you. CLICK HERE to find out more and sign up!

Four ~ Take Weekly Photos & Look For Non Scale Victories. More often than none, your scale may not move right away. Plus there are so many factors involving weight such as, hormones, time of day, stress, lack of sleep, etc. You may be getting results, but not seeing them on the scale, because you lost an hour or two of sleep. I am a stickler of taking photos!!! Pictures don’t lie. Take them weekly in the same lighting, same outfit if you can, and same time of day. You will be able to see small changes and those can be more motivating than anything!!! Look for those Non Scale Victories and free yourself from the dreaded scale!

Five ~ Get Your Micro-Nutrients & Supplements In Check. Supplements are important for many reasons! Many of us are lacking in proper vitamins and minerals in our daily diets. When you are not getting what your body needs, your results will stall. There are also several supplements that will aid in your fat loss, such as Protein powder, CLA, Fish oils, Creatine, and fat burner like Saturn’s Lipo-Ex. I take a full barrage of supplements daily during off-season and contest prep. They keep me healthy and keep my metabolism running efficiently. Saturn Supplements is who I trust with all of my supplements needs. They boast some of the most natural and highest quality supplements on the market. they have been in the industry for almost 30 years, so they know exactly what YOU need to efficiently lose fat!

Six ~ Be Patient. It takes time to lose fat. If it were an overnight process, then everyone would be in shape. Be patient and stay consistent with your goals and you WILL see results.

Image result for fitness take weekly photos

This year is YOUR year! I challenge you to push yourself to not only stick with your program and meet your goals, but to exceed them! I believe in you!!!
