12 Easy Ways to Prevent & Treat Muscle Soreness

Everyone experiences sore muscles sometimes – it’s how you know you

really had a good workout right?  Well, here are some awesome ways to

reduce your discomfort…




Things you can do before your training session


Hydrate This should go without saying, but people forget. Drinking plenty of water is one of your best defenses against muscle soreness. I recommend 96 ounces per day to my clients.

Front-load your nutrition The food you eat before you workout is the fuel that your body will use to repair your muscles. Make sure to get plenty of good nutrition the day(s) before a heavy training session. A good rule of thumb for your macronutrient ratios the day before training is 40% protein, 40% carbs, and 20% fats. This should serve as a starting point for individual experimentation. The day of your training session you should be eating a diet high in protein, complex carbs, and “good, healthy” fats.

Wave Goodbye to Underarm Flab

Because Flab Ain’t Fab…


Many of my female clients have a major issue with “wing flap” syndrome – the loose area of skin beneath the bicep that tends to have a mind of it’s own sometimes!

Here are 5 very effective moves you can add to your daily fitness regimen with ease…and keep in mind that you will need to do these exercises daily for about 21 days before you will start to see awesome results.




One of the beacons of old-fashioned exercise enthusiasts, push-ups provide all sorts of benefits. To tighten and tone your underarms, you’ll want to place your hands close together on the ground. Once in the push-up position (on your toes or knees, torso straight and arms extended out to hold your weight above the ground), lower your body to the ground. As you go down, keep your elbows against your side. Once your chest touches your hands, push yourself back to the starting position, careful to keep your elbows by your side throughout the motion. Go for three sets of 8 to 15 repetitions each.



Looking for another easy triceps-shaper that you can do no matter where you are? Dips fit the bill nicely. To perform dips, find a weight bench, an ottoman or a couple of sturdy chairs. Facing away from the bench, bend down and place your hands behind you on the bench. Place your legs directly in front of you, the heels of your feet resting on the ground. Slowly lower your body until your arms make a 90-degree angle. Push yourself back to the starting position and repeat 8 to 10 times. Go for 3 sets.


Fruits, Veggies & Peacocks

Between the farm stand, the zoo, the tractor rides and field after field of produce for

the picking I can’t think of a much better outing for the family then Underwood Family

Farms in Moorpark! We had so much fun there last weekend I had to share. The produce

is healthy, the fresh air is awesome and strolling through the berry patch is fun and


Check me out with my produce wagon…Open-mouthed smile

American Idol

Okay, so I am deviating slightly from the Health and Fitness theme of my Blog to tell you

about my AWESOME trip to American Idol on Wednesday – because it was so cool! =)

My father-in-law has been friends with Steve Tyler for years and when we heard he was

judging Idol (one of my favorite shows) we naturally asked if there was a chance to go

see it LIVE…

Why Juice? Here’s why…

     The first home juice extractor was not invented until the 1930s. It was called the Norwalk Juicer, by nutritionist Dr. Norman Walker. He was 110 years old when he died in 1984. His juicer worked by grating produce, placing the resulting mash in a bag, and then squeezing the bag under a hydraulic press. It was big and clunky, but it made great juice.

We are lucky to have so many amazing counter top machines available today, I just got

this one yesterday and it is seriously awesome!
