It seems that women are so afraid of looking bulky when it comes to lifting weights. In reality, our estrogen makes it so that we don’t build muscle in the same way that men do. And muscle burns way more calories than fat. That’s right, building muscle will help your metabolism to work faster … score!
You’ve seen him in the shower, riding a horse, on a yacht and other exotic locales as the shirtless pitchman in the Emmy-nominated Old Spice body wash commercials. Guess how he got (and keeps) the body that has helped make him instantly recognizable?
Isaiah Mustafa, the 36 year-old model, actor and former NFL wide receiver is everywhere lately – online, in print and on TV, including an appearance this week on The Tonight Show With Jay Leno. One of the questions everyone asks him is how he keeps his body looking so great. Thankfully, he isn’t shy about sharing his secret!
“I’m fortunate enough to work out with Tony Horton of P90X fame and he keeps me ripped,” Isaiah replied to Jay Leno’s question about his ripped bod. Isaiah then spent a healthy chunk of his precious couch time outlining the P90X nutrition plan that helps deliver such buzz-worthy results, impressing both Jay Leno and Eva Mendes.
Though he trains in person with Tony Horton twice a week, Isaiah has been a devoted P90X-er for over three years, adhering to the nutrition plan and intense total body workout that has helped him transform his body and his career. In addition to his Old Spice gig, he just landed a role in the upcoming film “Horrible Bosses,” starring Jennifer Aniston and Jason Bateman.
Maybe it takes a bottle of body wash to smell like him, but if you want to look like Isaiah, you gotta BRING IT
Awwwww, now I really want to get this program! Hubby and I are thinking of doing this rotation together … anyone want to join us?
For me, strength (or resistance) training really is key to losing weight and having less pain (residual back pain from car accident). It really is important to have proper form especially when you start doing workouts that use heavier weights. I saw this great article in a recent Beachbody newsletter: Love it! So let’s look [...]
So the DVDs are still hiding from me (grrrrrrr). Last night I considered my options (do my own thing, do one of my, oh I don’t know, 50+workout DVDs that I CAN find, etc.). I decided to do something I haven’t done since before I was married (ummm, 12 years now!) … take a LIVE [...]
Now that the cycle is broken, I need to declare my new goals. Consistency is important to me, losing weight is up there too. Here’s what works for me: A structured program, so I don’t have to decide each day what I am doing. Although I do like a little flexibility since life happens! Weights [...]
Since I have been in the mindset of losing weight and being healthy, I have been reading lots of information to keep me motivated and knowing the best way to achieve the results I want. These are thoughts I have put together and are my opinion based on what I’ve read. You always hear about [...]
I think the forces were aligned for me to workout this morning. I knew I had a PTA meeting this morning, so I wouldn’t be able to workout at the regular time (right after Aubrey leaves for school), so I had decided to either workout this afternoon or this evening. Well, Braden came wandering into [...]
Okay, so I was keeping track of me weight loss by the week, but I really got thrown off when I was MIA. So, instead I am just keeping track of overall weight loss and I added a countdown ticker. I only have 37 days until I turn 30! YIKES! I’ve really been stalled in [...]
Before I leave for Logan. I DID get up and I did a killer lower body strength workout. I actually only did half of the DVD, but it still worked out to be 35 minutes. The entire DVD is over an hour and includes standing leg work for just over 30 minutes and floor leg [...]
I have been having the hardest time being consistent lately. I really want a healthy lifestyle, but in the moment I seem to be making a lot of unhealthy choices. Lucky for me, each day is a new day. I just got done doing a Cathe strength session. Tomorrow I am going up to Logan [...]
