This is just a SMIDGE of what I took away from all 3 TRX sessions as I was trying to focus on learning the movements simultaneously:
Obesity is a bigger problem and killer than famine in our world – crazy right?!
Obesity is lifestyle indicator or from heredity not genetics
Focus on BODY TRANSFORMATION not WEIGHT LOSSTwo parents obese means 80% chance of child being obese, 1 means the child is 50% likely
We’ve been spending more on healthcare than in the school system
Do MMA fighters, ballet dancers, gymnasts lift weights not really they use their own weightGravity triggers the core muscles vs text book descriptions of muscle functions
Yes, a lot of this is Personal Trainer lingo – AND I DO plan on doing some elaboration on many other topics discussed topics such as EPOC and body fat 😉
The same day I did TRX Body Transformation as well as Advanced Core Training I also saw that I signed up for the Dynamax Boot Camp Revolution class – OOPS. Oh well, bring on the pain!
Divide your weight in half, that’s [in oz.] the lowest amount of water your body needs a day
Pre-workout and post-workout weight is important to replenish electrolytes AND water
Electrolyes AND water is mostly key when performing bouts of movement 90+ minutes
Carb loading isn’t necessarily needed pre-workout for anything under 90 minutes
Breakfast = BREAK the FAST! So working out on an empty stomach in the morning can lead to burnout
Protein quality varies incredibly- you PAY for the quality you GET
Aside from the OODLES of KNOWLEDGE I gained from this conference, I walked away having made many new connections with people who were not only fitness pros but also inspirations themselves. Many people I met had stories like mine – they came from being overweight to now working in a field where they help others prevent that cycle. AMAZING!
I was able to give my testimonial to the IDEAFIT folks and hope that it makes their reel!
