This week Madsweat’s trainers were ask to contribute to an article for   TheActiveTime’s Katie Rosenbrock (hungryrunner), asking the question, Does the Exercise Order Matter? Read the article and tell us which you do first?

There are 1,440 minutes in every day. Schedule 30 of them for physical activity!

A great testimonial from one of our clients

I asked one of my clients to write a testimonial for me and this is what i got… Im blown away  Thanks!!!

I knew I wanted / needed something but I didn’t know what it was. I’d spent 15+ years lifting weights with bodybuilders followed by 2+ years of Bikram (the really hot) yoga and for whatever reason my energy had sagged right along with my skin. I certainly didn’t feel as good or look as good as I wanted. Then I found Russell.
It’s all about results. My weight is exactly the same as when I started with Russell, but I recently had to buy jeans a size smaller. My core is the strongest it’s ever been and I’m even showing signs of a waistline. I’ve been thin for over 35 years but never expected to see a waistline in this lifetime! Hooray
I saw a friend I’ve known for many years last week. She looked at me and said, “You look strong!” And I feel strong. My posture is better, muscles are tighter and my sense of balance has improved more than I thought possible.

It’s true you can’t reverse the downward effects of gravity but you can train with Russell, the next best thing. You can read more on our web site. #fitness #personaltraining #NASM#Madeweat

Fit Tip

Overtraining is a common mistake beginners make in the gym not just with strength training but with cardio as well. Lift hard with focus and have a plan. Don’t lift with the same muscles two days in a row. Don’t work biceps (curls) the day after working your back since they are secondary movers for back routines. However it’s ok to work back and bi’s on the same day.
Have a great day and stay active!
