          Over the years, coffee has become a mainstay in the life of Elite In-Home Personal Training clients and many other health and fitness enthusiasts everywhere. It gives you a burst of energy when needed and best of all, it helps keep the fat off!

 

          Some weight loss clients have been advised to drink 2 cups of coffee in the morning before a workout to help reduce body fat.  The client will wake up and drink 2 cups of coffee on an empty stomach. By the time they are finished, their Elite In-Home Personal Trainer should be at their door waiting to take them through another exciting workout.

            The caffeine in the coffee will boost their endurance by prolonging fatigue and help the client burn just body fat. What many people do wrong is they eat a meal right before a workout and then wonder why they crash during a workout. Unfortunately, following the routine just outlined instead of the routine outlined in the second paragraph will only maintain or worsen your current weight and body fat levels instead of tapping into and burning your excess body fat storage to lower those measurements.

Some other benefits to drinking coffee are:

  • improvements to long term memory
  • stimulates the bowels
  • natural diuretic

 

Of course, plenty of clear liquids should be taken in to flush out toxins no matter how much coffee is consumed.

            The only proven negative effect of coffee is that unfiltered coffee beans have compounds that could possibly raise your blood cholesterol as much as 20 points. Basically, stay away from coffee made in a French press. Many people claim the flavor is better but obviously not healthy for the body. Therefore, drink only filtered coffee!!

A couple of tidbits of information about caffeine:

  • 1 shot of espresso has less caffeine than regular coffee
  • 1 cup of tea has more caffeine than regular coffee
  • 1 cup of coffee can enhance your alertness

 

So, go ahead and have a java jolt and enjoy! Take advantage of the benefits a hot cup of coffee can do for you. One short, skinny latte to go could add amazing results to your life!!

Hey guys!

          WOW!  I had a great time yesterday and was able to meet some really great people, spend time with family and friends, got paid for a photo shoot, and as the first runner up in the light-heavyweight division; I am now qualified to move on to compete at national level bodybuilding competitions such as the Mr. USA and the National Championships!  Doing well at these events will take me to the next level as I will have earned the right to call myself an International Federation of Bodybuilding Professional Athlete (IFBB PRO).  

          I couldn’t be more motivated to train for and compete at the 2010 California State Bodybuilding Championships which is being held in Culver City California Saturday, May 29th, 2010.  I fully expect to win.  I only compete to win.  On Sunday, May 30th I fly to Canada to visit MuscleTech headquarters to wrap up my physique transformation photoshoot.  I currently have a few photo shoots scheduled for June and from there I plan on keeping the momentum going and train with even more disipline, concentration, and intensity and will jump on stage at a national level competition with hopes of earning my IFBB Pro card; all in one year!

        I sincerely appreciate all the support from my friends, family, and fans; everyone from the people who are involved in my life and have been for quite some time as well as all of the new people who support Team Tears!  Please feel free to come out again and show some love at the Cal!  After Pre-Judging we will be going out to get some lunch and anyone making the trip is more than welcome to have lunch with us before heading back for finals.  My contact information can be found below so feel free to contact me if you have any questions and I will do my best to respond in a timely fashion.  Again thanks so much!  I’ve included a few pictures from finals for everyone who couldn’t make it.  Oh, look at the time… time to go feed the machine! See you there! 🙂

  My trip to Muscle Tech/Iovate’s headquarters in Canada was an awesome experience! I was up at 4:30am (pacific time) and flew out of Sacramento International Airport by 6:15am.  I landed at Houston International Airport and jumped on another plane and landed in Canada  after about eight hours of travel.   I got asked a million questions as to why I was coming to Canada by the customs agent.  It was a bit ridiculous but I made it through.  A limo took me from the airport to my own the suite that Muscle Tech booked for me.  It was a thirty minute drive and I couldn’t wait to get off my butt and walk around.  

  I got to the hotel at about 7:00pm (eastern time – I was in Oakville/Toronto Canada). Upon checking in, the lady at the front desk promptly informed me that they were serving dinner until 7:30pm.  I ran upstairs, dropped my bags off and ate, and ate, and ate some more.  They had the best wings ever! By the time I was done my plate was filled with bones. Hey, I had to get my protein in you know?

  After dinner I went back to my suite and called some friends.  I left a message for the first person I called saying something like, ” I guess you’re asleep.. its what… about eleven o’clock out there?”.  Shortly after, I got a call back and my friend said “what are you talking about?  Its only five o’ clock here”, laughing.  Needless to say I forgot I was the one on the east coast;  I was exahausted.  After being up for about fourteen hours that day (and I only slept three hours the night before), I fell asleep right away.

   The next morning I got up and pigged out.  I wanted to make sure I still weighed 250 lbs for the photo shoot.  While I was eating I met the two other athlete’s that came for the photoshoot, George and Ty.  Both cool guys.  We talked for a bit then I left to finish getting ready.  We were picked up from the suites and driven to Muscle Tech/Iovate’s headquarters at 8:30am!  Keep in mind that to me it’s still 5:30am!

  Once we arrived we were greeted by Athletic Talent Director, Aaron and he took us to the cafeteria and we ate again.  He gave us a tour around the building and it was very impressive; very high tech, definitely first class!  On our way back to the photo shoot area they gave us some Muscle Tech clothing as well as the new Hydroxycut Hardcore X that is out now. We did our photo shoot with hip hop music blaring in the background.  The energy at Muscle Tech headquarters is incredible! Its something that should be experienced by every fitness enthusiast!  After our photo shoot they surprised us with a video shoot and took our measurements!  I was dead on my goal! I weighted 250.8 pounds exactly!

   Once that was done, we got a chance to workout in their gym with beautiful scenery of snow and trees just outside the windows!  With the music blaring we all went at it.  Also there was Matt Kroczaleski the world’s strongest 220 pound man.  We had a great time in there throwing the weights around!  They even had dumbbells that went as high as 230 pounds!  I had to take advantage of that situation and do a few sets with 180 pound dumbbells.  We don’t have weight like that here in Sacramento and luckily most people, especially Elite In-Home Personal Training clients don’t really need that much weight to accomplish their individual goals.  After our workout we were able to shower and change so we could go eat again.  All of the training facilities I just mentioned are available to the employee’s of Muscle Tech/Iovate!  They have a cafeteria for their employee’s and they only serve healthy food. They even have phisique transformation contest amongst the employee’s.  The person we met with next, Susan told me she won last year’s contest… and a $2,000 first place purse as well, SWEET!

  At lunch we met with susan and she covered all the contract and technical issue’s and answered all of our questions.  Once we finished there we were picked up in a van and we were off to the airport to go back home.

 I had a great time and can’t say enough good things about the type of company Muscle Tech is.  My next photo shoot with them is scheduled for May 2nd.  I’ll see you then!
