Music Strong Helps Hollywood Trombonist

In Fitness by Angela0 Comments

Have you checked out our YouTube channel lately?  If not, you’re missing out. Thanks to Neil Ebanks for making these incredible Promo Videos, I have 5 clients talk about how Music Strong has helped them achieve pain-free playing careers and phenomenal weight loss; everyone from recording artists and touring musicians to vocal coaches, chiropractors to trombone players.
Here is the first video from my friend and client Josh Scalf: touring trombonist for Jake Owen and recording artist on how not only is he able to play without shoulder pain and with better posture, we’ve improved his core strength, mobility, and oh yeah, he’s at 50 pounds lost and still losing. 🙂

New Study Shows Benefits of Working With a Personal Trainer

In Fitness, Resources by Angela0 Comments

Over the course of my career specializing in fitness training for musicians, it has become obvious to me the benefits that come from using a personal trainer, especially when it is combined with a proper nutrition plan. Clients look better, feel healthier, have increased energy, and can play for extended periods without pain.
While I see these benefits on a daily basis when working with clients, a recent study conducted by supplementcritique.com  to gauge consumer perceptions of personal fitness trainers reinforces that. The study found that an overwhelming number of people are satisfied with their experience when they worked with a personal trainer. The survey, conducted in the United States, targeted consumers that currently workout at least three times a week.
Key Takeaways:

  • 83% of people that have used a personal trainer were satisfied with the results.
  • Experience is the most important factor people consider when choosing a personal trainer, with 35% of respondents stating this was their most important consideration

Satisfied Customers
Of those surveyed, 56% of respondents who exercised three times or more per week stated that they had used the services of a personal trainer in the past. Of those that had used the services of a personal trainer as part of their workout regime, a whopping 83% were satisfied with the results, underlining the value that personal trainers bring to those looking to achieve their fitness goals.
one
Of those respondents that had not used a personal trainer in the past, there was a clear understanding of the benefit of using a personal trainer as evidenced by the fact that 68% of respondents believed that working with a personal trainer would help them reach their fitness goals.
Experience Matters
Consumers were asked what the most important factors they would consider when hiring a personal trainer. 35% of respondents said that the experience of the personal trainer was the most important factor followed by 27% of people saying that personality and likeability were most important. 26% of respondents cited cost as being the most important factor they would consider when choosing a trainer to work with.
two
Education
The study asked respondents what they thought was the education level of the average personal trainer. 61% of those surveyed believed that the average personal trainer has less than a college degree. 15% believed that the average education level was high school, while 46% believed that the average personal trainer had some college. 38% believed that the average personal trainer had obtained a college degree.
three
What is striking about this study is the satisfaction level that people have when they work with a personal trainer. Working with a personal trainer that you can connect with is far more likely to lead to you having success while also increasing your enjoyment level.
The study was conducted in April of 2015 in order to understand how personal trainers are perceived in the marketplace by consumers who make fitness a part of their daily lives. You can view the entire survey by clicking on the graphic below:

Music Strong Goal Challenge 2014

In Fitness, Motivation and Success, Workshops by Angela0 Comments

The goal here is to change your daily habits, which will change your life. This is not a quick fix. This is a life change.
Are you sick and tired of being sick and tired with yourself? You vow, seemingly daily, to get back on the right track, to do what it takes, to meet your goals. You know what to do but by the end of the day, you realize you’re exactly where you started or even behind where you started the day instead of making progress.
Are you ready to change that?
Are you ready to meet your goals and even exceed them?
It’s time. Accountability is one of the greatest factors of success. Look at Weight Watchers, they have it on two levels: the honor system where you don’t go over your points each day and your weekly check in.
I’m running an accountability group challenge, starting Sunday February 23. Your goal could be anything: weight loss, fat loss, increased pushups, business success, debt reduction, etc. The goal doesn’t matter, the results do. More information is forthcoming, but if you want in, sign up here. All I ask is that you post information at the beginning stating who you are and what your goal is and why you want it, and every week at least detail the steps you’ve taken towards meeting that goal.
Specifics:

  • If you are pursuing weight loss, use my 10 week article series Get Off the Hamster Wheel! 10 Steps to Get From Where You Are to Where You Want to Be.   The list starts with tip #1, it is at the bottom of this page: http://musicstrong.com/top10/
  •  If you are using another book for guidance, please list it.
  • When: “registration” is February 23-28. Challenge officially begins March 1 and runs through May 1
  • What is requried?: To join you must state who you are and what your goal is. The goal must be specific and attainable (aka: dropping 100 lbs in 2 months or saving $1M is not attainable, though specific.) Your goal must also have a date. So state your goal in specific terms:

My goal is to Save $1000 and have that amount of money set aside in an account by May 1.
My goal is to lose 20 lbs (or reach a goal weight of XXX) by May 1.
My goal is to be a size 4 in jeans by May 1
My goal is to have read a 1000 page novel by May 1.
My goal is to go through the entire T&G exercise book for flute by May 1.
etc. etc. etc.
All realistic, all attainable, all with deadlines.

  • You need some measure of checking your progress so feel free to post before and after pictures/soundfiles/word documents of yourself/your playing/ your progress/your measurements, etc.

 
Next, you must name 3 things:

  1. What are you willing to give up?
  2. What small, seemingly insignificant thing are you willing to do each and every day to push you towards your goal?
  3. You must write your goals down somewhere and look at them every day.

Then you come to the group (see below) and post your daily update: what you did, if you failed, what you learned, etc. and everyone in the group will applaud your efforts and encourage you along.
This group is based on the honor system. If you lie, you only cheat yourself.
Prizes: for everyone who successfully completes this challenge (reaches their goal by May 1,) you will receive a month of free online or in person training with me. If I can think of a better prize (or you have suggestions) please contribute!
 
Are you in?
If you would like to join us, come join the Facebook group and “register” at
Goal Challenge 2014 Group:
The group is only open for one week. After this week you will need to be added to the group to join. How do you do this? Tell me you’re in below, or you can post in the Facebook anouncement on my page: https://www.facebook.com/events/210158359190966/

Lyle McDonald’s Books and Body Recomposition

In Fitness, Nutrition, Resources by Angela0 Comments

I am constantly referring people to Lyle’s books. From Rapid Fat Loss, to Flexible Dieting to getting in contest ready shape, he is an absolute authority on the science of fat loss, muscle gain, etc.   I’ve put all of his books together in one easy to find place right here.  He also has a free forum you can join to get more information from people using his products, seeking advice and wisdom and chat with the man yourself. His forum is at: http://forums.lylemcdonald.com/index.php
Clicking on each link will take you to a full description of the book including Table of Contents and sample of the first chapter so you really understand what you’re getting and if it’s the right book for you.
Additionally, if you like his products as much as I do and would like to be an affiliate (earning money for referring people to his products) you can do that through this first link:

The Rapid Fat Loss Handbook

The world’s only sane crash diet.  Details when and why it is appropriate.
The Rapid Fat Loss Handbook
About the Book

The Rapid Fat Loss Handbook offers a scientifically based approach to quick weight and fat loss. Recognizing that people need or simply want to lose weight and fat rapidly, I set out to develop the safest, most effective way of accomplishing that goal.
I based the program around the idea of creating a diet that would provide the fewest calories possible while still providing all of the essential nutrients required by the body: protein, essential fatty acids, vitamins and minerals. This provides simply the safest and sanest way to lose fat quickly without sacrificing health (or muscle mass).
Every aspect about how to set up the diet is laid out in a step by step form and the diet is based around whole foods that can be found at any market. With purchase of the book, you’ll also receive instructions for how to access an online calculator that will set up the diet and provide food recommendations.
As well, the diet also incorporates concepts I’ve discussed on this site: free meals, refeeds and full diet breaks to help with both adherence and the body’s tendency to fight back when dieting. Guidelines are provided for when to take them, how to use them, etc.
In addition, guidelines for moving back to maintenance, as well as for using the program to transition into a more moderate fat loss diet are provided in detail.
Specific training guidelines are also provided in order to provide the best results with the least time investment. Massive amounts of exercise aren’t needed; quite in fact, too much exercise while on the rapid fat loss program can hinder results. Quite in fact, for the extremely overweight, no exercise is actually required to reap the benefits of the program.
The book provides specific recommendations (for everyone from beginners to advanced trainees) for both resistance training and aerobic activity in terms of how often and how much will provide the best results.
As well, realizing that most people can’t or won’t join a gym, I developed a small home-exercise handbook outlining a basic routine that can be followed with no or minimal equipment. This is included with your purchase as a digital download.

 
A Guide to Flexible Dieting
This is my go-to book with clients, especially those wondering how to “diet” without “dieting”. It’s about learning how to eat less, manipulate your calorie intake the most effective way without eliminating food groups, buying goofy supplements or anything else “fad-ish”.

Applied Nutrition for Mixed Sports
If,  like me, you enjoy several different types of activity with completely different nutritional needs ( for me it’s weight lifting and cycling) then this book will help you put together a solid nutrition plan to meet both needs.

Applied Nutrition for Mixed Sports

About the Book/DVD
Applied Nutrition for Mixed Sports examines the topic of nutrition for what are referred to as mixed sports. This includes almost all team sports along with many individual sports such as boxing, mixed martial arts and some track and field events.
Basically any sport that has requirements for both endurance and strength/power is considered a mixed sport. Because of the often odd nature of performance requirements, optimizing nutrition for these sports often presents problems that aren’t seen in either the pure strength/power or pure endurance sports.
The book, as well as the accompanying 2 DVD set, approaches the problem in an applied fashion building up the topic of nutrition from the ground up to present a comprehensive examination of how mixed sports athletes can optimize their nutrition.
This product started life as a seminar I did in Vancouver at Simon Fraser University in 2009 for their football and soccer teams on applied sports nutrition.  But rather than just slap the DVD together with the handouts and slides, I decided to write a complete stand alone book (derived primarily from the handouts).  Of course, the original DVD seminar is included along with the Powerpoint slides and the full package includes everything shown below.
Please note: The DVDs have no regional encoding and should play on any DVD player or computer with DVD capabilities.

The Protein Book
How much protein do you really need? This is a question that gets bantered back and forth by fitness professionals and the answer is “it depends”.  This book will answer all those questions  definitively for you.

The Protein Book

 
The Protein Book
 
About the Book

The Protein Book is a comprehensive look at the issue of protein intake for both strength/power and endurance athletes. Coaches looking for the latest scientific developments in terms of optimizing protein nutrition for their athletes as well as athletes looking for answers to their questions will find them all covered in complete detail.
Questions about protein such as “How much protein do athletes need?â€, “What’s the best protein?â€, and “When should protein be consumed around training for optimal results?†and many others are asked continuously by both athletes and coaches looking to optimize their sports nutrition.
As with most topics pertaining to sports nutrition, the answers to the above questions are context dependent. The type of sport, the goals of the athlete, the specifics of the situation all determine how much protein is required, what protein might be optimal, etc. No single recommendation can possibly be appropriate for all athletes under all situations.
With over 200 pages and over 500 scientific references, no questions about optimal protein intake for athletes remain unanswered.

 
The Stubborn Fat Solution
We all have stubborn fat, the last layer of protective padding and if you are trying to get lean for competition, photo shoots, etc. this will help you out.

The Stubborn Fat Solution

 

About the Book
The problem of stubborn body fat (typically the abdominals/low back for men and hips and thighs for women) is one that lean dieters have been trying to deal with for decades. Various simple explanations (typically involving estrogen) have been offered but the results from these simple approaches have been, at best, poor. This is a place where simple is simply wrong.
As it turns out, stubborn fat is stubborn for a number of inter-related physiological reasons, all of which conspire to make its elimination difficult (and for some, seemingly impossible). The Stubborn Fat Solution is the first book to scientifically examine the causes of stubborn body fat in extreme detail. From receptor type and number, blood flow, the propensity to both store and release fat, the physiology of stubborn fat is dissected in detail. The role of hormones and diet is also discussed.
Of course, all of the physiological verbiage is useless without solutions and The Stubborn Fat Solution provides those as well. The book describes four specific protocols aimed at optimally mobilizing and burning off stubborn fat.
While the protocols are primarily training based, the impact of diet on stubborn fat loss is also discussed and information on how best to incorporate the four protocols into your current training and diet program are examined. And while none are required, several beneficial supplements are also discussed.
Please note: Like The Ultimate Diet 2.0, The Stubborn Fat Solution is aimed at lean dieters trying to achieve extreme levels of leanness. Until men are 10-12% body fat and females are ~15-17% body fat, the information in this book is not necessary (although it will still be informative).

 
The Ketogenic Diet
Are you into low-carb?  This is for you:

The Ketogenic Diet
About the Book

Very low-carbohydrate (aka ketogenic) diets such as The Atkins Diet, Protein Power and The South Beach Diet have come and gone repeatedly over the years and there is currently great research and real-world interest in their effects. Unfortunately, altogether too much misinformation exists regarding them.
Folks who are pro-low-carbohydrate diets tend to present them as the quick and easy solution to everything including obesity. Easy weight loss without hunger or calorie counting is promised but never seems to pan out as well as we might hope.
At the other extreme are the anti-low-carbohydrate folks who tend to present low-carbohydrate diets as nothing short of a nutritional disaster being perpetrated by a bunch of con men.
The truth, of course lies somewhere in the middle. While low-carbohydrate diets aren’t for everyone and have their pros and cons, the research is clear: they have major benefits under certain circumstances and can be as healthy (and sometimes healthier) than ‘standard’ carbohydrate based dieting.
The Ketogenic Diet is the first and only book to objectively examine in-depth the scientific evidence regarding low-carbohydrate/ketogenic diets. It is meant to be a reference manual for low-carbohydrate diets; it is unlike any other book on low-carbohydrate diets that you have ever read or seen.
Covering every topic in extreme detail, The Ketogenic Diet addresses everything from the basic physiology of how the body adapts to a low-carbohydrate intake, the details of human fuel utilization, the impact of low-carbohydrate diets on body composition and many, many more.
Of course, none of the above is useful without practical application guidelines. Details on how to optimize low-carbohydrate diets for different goals (such as fat loss, bodybuilding and endurance performance) are discussed along with three distinct types of low-carbohydrate diets. In addition, the book includes a complete discussion of resistance, aerobic and anaerobic exercise physiology along with specific training programs for different goals and different levels of trainee
At 325 pages and containing over 600 scientific references, this will be your complete reference for ketogenic diets.
Please note: this book does not include information on the ketogenic diet for adolescent epilepsy (the topic is discussed briefly). I highly suggest The Ketogenic Diet: A Treatment for Epilepsy, 3rd Edition (Paperback) by Freeman, Freeman and Kelly (link will take you to Amazon.com page).

 
The Ultimate Diet 2.0 (UD 2.)
Advanced Cyclical Dieting for Super-Leanness
The Ultimate Diet 2.0

About the Book
When trying to diet to extremely low levels of body fat, muscle mass and performance loss, crashing hormones, runaway hunger and others are perennial difficulties that the non-genetic elite (or natural) dieter has to face.
The Ultimate Diet 2.0 (UD2) provides the answer to all of those problems and more. Building on previous cyclical diets such as the original Ultimate Diet by Dan Duchaine and Michael Zumpano, as well as Bodyopus, the UD2 includes a full discussion of the physiological hurdles that dieters must clear to reach their goals of extremely low body fat levels.
Based around cutting edge research into bodyweight regulation, calorie partitioning and more, The Ultimate Diet 2.0 is a coordinated program of training, nutrition and supplements that will let the most genetically average individual sidestep the problems I mentioned above.
Every aspect of the training cycle, what to eat, how to train and what supplements to take are described in detail. As well, modifications to the diet for different goals are described as well. Variations for powerlifters, endurance athletes and those seeking mass gains are detailed as well.
Please note: the UD2 is an advanced diet for advanced dieters and is only for those seeking very low levels of body fat. A male should be at 12-15% body fat or lower and females at 21-24% body fat or lower prior to considering the UD2. As well trainees must have at least 6 months of consistent training in the weight room under their belt before they even consider the UD2.

 
Bromocriptine
An old drug with new uses
Bromocriptine
About the Book

Bromocriptine is a dopamine agonist drug (meaning that it acts like dopamine in the brain) that has been used for over three decades for the treatment of a number of conditions such as Parkinson’s disease, acromegaly (the disease Andre “The Giant†had), and overproduction of the hormone prolactin. You may be wondering what this has to do with the topic of body composition.
As I discuss in many of my articles and other books, the body regulates factors such as body weight, composition and appetite through a variety of hormones such as insulin and leptin. It turns out that those hormones exert at least part of their effect through dopamine levels in the brain. When people diet, dopamine levels drop in the brain and this is responsible for many of the effects (such as lowered metabolic rate, increased hunger, etc.) that occur.
My book Bromocriptine starts by outlining the systems that regulate body weight and fat levels before explaining how the drug bromocriptine can ‘trick’ the body into thinking that it’s not dieting so that metabolic rate doesn’t slow, hunger is decreased, etc. Side effects, dosing and everything else related to the drug and how it can be used for various purposes related to body composition are outlined in detail in the book.

My Favorite Pre-Workout Supplement

In Fitness, Nutrition, Resources by Angela0 Comments

Pre-workout supplements are all the rage and have been for awhile.  Back when I worked at Vitamin Shoppe BSN’s N.O. Explode was our most popular seller, followed right up by USP Labs Jack3D.  N.O. Xplode got the job done but the taste!!! *shiver*  You will literally shiver because it’s so strong. Jack3D is good too, with less bitterness and I love the fact that it has less fillers, only things that are really proven to work: Beta-Alanine, Creatine, Caffeine….you can see my take on what supplements you REALLY need here.
EXCLUSIVE: Jack3d – USP Labs – Only $29.99 & FREE SHIPPING! – Pre-Workout Formula
But one supplement that has stayed with me throughout all of this is a drink called Celsius.  I started drinking it back when it was bottled in glass bottles and they still had the Ginger Ale flavor (please make it again!  Tasted EXACTLY like Ginger Ale).  The product got a makeover, they bottled them in cans and sold them by the 4-pack and suddenly I’m addicted.  I literally drink them almost every single day.

The Claim:

Burn up to 100 calories more when combined with exercise.  Celsius is way more than an energy drink as studies show Celsius may reduce body fat, increase endurance and provide greater resistance to fatigue (increased energy).* These were the results for participants, who drank a Celsius once a day during the 10-week study. On the days they exercised they consumed their daily Celsius 15 minutes prior to exercise.

 
The Best Part?  BACKED BY RESEARCH.
I dare you to find another energy drink backed by research!
Several scientific studies have been done on using this product in conjuction with exercise. From their website:

Thermogenic Scientific Studies

Seven scientific studies have been conducted on Celsius by U.S. accredited scientific research facilities according to strict scientific standards. To ensure consumer confidence, trust, and industry independence, the studies were presented at scientific conferences and published for peer review.

Celsius Has Thermogenic Properties

All of the clinical studies show that Celsius has thermogenic properties. Thermogenics are substances that increases metabolism and push the nervous system to be more active. This speeds up body functions such as heart rate and breath rate. In turn this causes you to burn more calories than you normally would. The increase in metabolism from thermogenics results in the body burning fat as fuel.
The scientific studies were conducted on the Celsius product as a whole, not just the ingredients contained in Celsius. This is an important distinction. The multiple studies show that drinking Celsius results in burning calories and providing lasting energy. When drinking a great tasting Celsius before exercise, Celsius reduces body fat, increases endurance and provides greater resistance to fatigue (increased energy).* Even better, Celsius has evidence of many consumers that have gotten real results. Read the stories from REAL PEOPLE who have gotten REAL RESULTS.

Besides all this they actually taste REALLY good. The Cola flavor is unacnnily like cola, but my favorite is definitely the Sparkling Wild Berry.

Ready to try it?  They’ve got lots of different coupons out right now here are some:

(I’ll definitely be participating in this since it’s 1) cheaper than buying retail and 2) saves me from having to pick it up at the store every few days)
