@marcinevin explains how to burn MORE calories WITHOUT EXERCISE in this post! Read and save, friends! You don’t (and shouldn’t) kill yourself in the gym every day.
I have some bad news, and I have some good news.
Let’s start with the bad. Despite what you might think, exercise doesn’t burn all that many calories. And the even sadder truth is that the more we exercise we do, especially in the form of moderate intensity, long duration cardio, the fewer calories we burn. So eventually it will take you 60 minutes to burn the same amount you used to doing only 30 minutes. And who has time for that?
But now the good news. That means you don’t have to spend hours working out every day to get results!!
On average, you might only burn a few hundred calories per hour of exercise. Which really isn’t that much, especially considering how easy it is eat that back in a matter of minutes.
The other thing to consider is that exercise is not innocuous, especially in excessive amounts. Long duration cardio sessions and daily, high intensity workouts are really stressful on your body, and if you keep up with them long term, eventually your body will start breaking down.
In that case, it’s beneficial to find other ways to burn calories that aren’t so time consuming and aren’t such a burden on the body.
Enter N.E.A.T., which stands for non exercise activity thermogenesis. Which is basically a fancy way of saying the amount of calories you burn during the day outside of your structured workouts.
All of the activities I listed here can be considered N.E.A.T, and while it might not seem like much, the calories can really add up.
And it can easily be the reason why you lose weight or gain weight over time. So often we want to blame our slow metabolism for our weight gain, when it’s more a matter of just being way less active during the day.
So before you go adding more exercise or slashing your calories to see faster fat loss, give some of these suggestions a try. I’ll bet that if you are really mindful about getting more movement, you’ll see far faster progress.

Do you suffer from knee pain?
If you are experiencing knee pain as well as if you lack flexibility in the hamstrings, start adding backwards walking into your warm ups to help prevent all the pain. Backward walking not only strengthens your leg muscles but also improves your balance.
If you need help with working around injuries as well as improving strength and mobility of old injured joints, we can help you 📞 +(27) +82-461-1443
Algo que muchas personas olvidan al hacer sparring es divertirse. A final de cuentas uno elige éste camino. El objetivo de un sparring no es doblegar o humillar, sino hacer ver las debilidades del compañero para poder corregir y avanzar.
Sí se mantiene la mente relajada, el cuerpo por ende tendrá movimientos más fluidos y sin tensión.
Recuerda, ama lo que haces, que tu pasión te permita dar lo mejor de ti, si vives enamorado de tu profesión siempre querrás aprender más, no por obligación, sino por elección.
Something that many people forget when doing sparring is fun. At the end of accounts one chooses this way. The objeticve of a sparring is not to bend or humillate, but to show the weaknesses of the partner to be able to correct and advance.
If the mind is kept relaxed, the body will therefore have more fluid movements without tension.
Remember, love what you do, that your passion allows you to give the best of you, if you live in love with your profession you will always want to learn more, not by obligation, but by choice.
Here we have Timmy completing a set of kipping Toes To Bar and Nikki completing a set of Kipping Knee Tucks. I can go in to depth on the two but I’ll keep it relatively simple
The major difference between the two:
Nikki is making herself shorter by bending at the knees so she is able to complete the same ROM as Timmy is
How this works?
By reducing the length of the lever, we make ourselves shorter and therefore lighter. By doing this in the knee tuck, it reduces the amount of compression strength (abs, quads and hip flexors), and upper back strength required. If we are right in the hamstrings and calves, this is also a much more suitable progression
Do the movements do the same thing?
For the most part yes. In still shots you can see that they both achieve the Hollow and arch shapes in their kips which are gymnastics fundamentals. At the top they’re both working hard to close at the hips as much as possible (compression) without utilising the lats to much by leaning back
Things to improve:
For Nikki- her grip. She needs to get roll the palm of her hands over the bar a little more. This will prevent her from having the re grip and also will build the required forearm and grip strength to progress to the straight leg version
For Timmy- becoming more flexible through the hamstrings and calves will make it much easier for him to bring his legs up- it will also stop him from having to bend his knees. Increasing the range through his thoracic (upper back) and shoulder will also make the arch shape in his kip a little smoother

Deep gratitude for this little one.
Maybe not so little; but still my baby-sis.
It’s not a choice to share this life with our siblings.
But it is a choice to carve out unforgettable memories with them.
Thanks for trusting me on this crazy adventure.
And having the courage to dance in different worlds.

Como é a primeira que estamos organizando pedimos que cada um que vai participar leve um prato de salgados. E para o "Parabéns" vamos nos juntar para contribuir com um bolo especial. Então até esse fim de semana estaremos recebendo o valor de R$10 reais de quem for participar da festa e puder contribuir #doreinomovement#anos60#jovensdecristo#movement#jesus#igrejabatistaluzevida#luzevida#festacrista#igreja#jovemcristao
Here’s some ways that recovery may be synonymous with stupidity:
1. Your warm up is longer than your workout. •
2. You’re optimizing, not adapting. Optimizing is fine if you’re ok with where you’re at. Most people, however, have goals they need to reach. This requires giving your body a healthy dose of positive stressors. Over-recovering mitigates positive stressors. •
3. You give your body a positive stressor and then mitigate its positive effects. This is like pouring water into a bottle and then immediately dumping it out. For example, cryotherapy immediately after lifting mitigates the positive inflammatory response from lifting. •
4. You think about microscopic variables rather than macroscopic variables. This is seen when someone goes out of their way to take fish oil, yet they sleep 4 hours a night. Stupid recovery is ignoring free/bang for your buck recovery strategies (sleep, breathing, movement) in place of expensive/time consuming recovery strategies (massage, cryotherapy, supplements, etc...)
5. Thinking that recovery is synonymous with being sedentary. Doing nothing will destroy progress. In order to develop any skill (everything is a skill), you need to practice. This means that you need to do things frequently, but not necessarily at a high intensity. Good recovery protocols utilize low intensity tasks to develop skill without taxing the body.
Work doesn’t ever seem like work when you have amazing people along side of you! Thank you for making my job easier every day. Proud to be your “boss” (although you’re more like the boss) @jackarooty 💋
You get the best results in Pilates when you have good quality movements. When you use muscle energy to create resistance instead of momentum, you learn to let go of unnecessary tension therefore helping you find the right balance and reach results. For info on classes or private sessions send a DM. Learn how Pilates can take your practice to the next level. ✨👊🏻
