Getting Organized

IMG_7256 by Alleh Lindquist

Things I learned from Jillian Michaels about exercise today:

I am a Balanced Oxidizer.  I should be eating 40% carbohydrates, 30% protein, and 30% fat.  Whatever that means.

Working the upper and lower body in rapid succession pushes the blood back and forth which allows you to burn twice as many calories.

You always want to train the muscles from largest to smallest.

Circuit training: performing a series of selected exercises or activities in a sequence as rapidly as possible.
Interval training: short, high-intensity cardio exercise alternated with longer periods of lower-intensity cardio.
Supersetting: an advanced training method in which you do two exercises, one after the other, with no rest in between.  It’s best to combine two exercises in the same muscle group if you want to get definition.

My Info:

BMR (basal metabolic rate) = 1444.35 calories
BMI (body mass index) = 20.52 (normal is between 18.5 – 25.9)
Body Fat = 21% ? (online calculators aren’t really very accurate, I would need to get measured)
