Summer Lovin’ and a Recipe for Success

Summer Lovin’ and a Recipe for Success

Do you find it much easier to train and stay on track in the summer versus any other time of year?  Even with the temptations of summer parties and ice cream it’s easy to keep your mojo during the warmer months.  It must be the sun recharging our batteries! 

What many people find energizing is taking some elements of their workouts outdoors.  Have you tried training outside?  If you haven’t and you find yourself struggling with your motivation then this is a must-try!  Walking lunges are a staple of the “outdoor club” where you have all the space there is, as well as any type of jungle-gym activities like you remember from childhood – outdoor playgrounds are still around, right?  Jumping is another activity that’s best done outdoors on natural ground.  Jumping on the grass or dirt is much easier on the joints than jumping on the concrete floors of the gym and you might find that you can jump until your heart’s content without being in pain.

You don’t need to spend your entire training time outdoors but little moments here and there are help to mix things up and keep training fresh.

Diet-wise, who doesn’t love a good barbecue?  This doesn’t have to be a diet killer if you plan it right!  Try adding AP Regimen Non Stim™ to your supplement stack to help bring your glucose levels down, transport glycogen to your muscles, block the absorption of fat and boost metabolism.

If you’ve got a killer appetite, salads are an excellent way to fill up without going overboard on calories and we’ve got one you’re gonna LOVE (you know we’ve always got the goods you want IN on)…

The Salad that Eats Like A Meal:

  • Romaine Lettuce
  • Cucumber
  • Vine Ripe Tomatoes
  • Purple Onion
  • Orange Bell Pepper
  • Garbanzo Beans
  • Avocado
  • Salt, Pepper & Parsley to taste

Cut it all up, throw some plastic wrap over the bowl and shake it to mix, the avocado creates a super creamy dressing with HEALTHY fats!  We can’t get enough!

Bottom line here is:  unless you live in a sunny climate, we only get about 2 months of really nice weather so don’t waste it!  Go out there and ENJOY!
