Need a plateau buster? Men and women: Increase your weight!

Men and women lifting hand weights
Contrary to popular belief, adding a couple of extra pounds on your hands weight won’t lead you to bulk up

Have you noticed that the hand weights that used to challenge you and leave you pleasantly sore after a session are feeling a little underwhelming? If yes, it may be time to increase your weight.

Different goals for men and women
My male clients, for the most part, greet this suggestion with open arms. Women on the otherhand are often uneasy with the suggestion of lifting more weight, suspicious that it will cause them to bulk up.

To these clients (and women alike), let me assure you that a couple of extra pounds on your hand weights will only help you with toning and increasing muscle definition (not bulk), which helps one burn more calories at rest (and lead to weight loss and a more toned and athletic body).

What if I do want to bulk up?
If your goal it to increase muscle mass, this can be done…and it is a purposeful program (coupled with a meal plan that increases caloric intake substatially). Before I embark on any at-home program with a client, we discuss your goals and any initial questions (and any that come up along the way).

If you answer yes to any of the following, it may be time to talk to your trainer about increasing your hand weights:

  • Your progress plateaued
  • You have never increased your hand weight
  • Your weights are no longer a challenge to lift
  • You can do endless reps

Trying to add more protein to your diet? Here are the top 40 ultimate protein picks

Add more protein to your diet with with Sashimi Tuna
Yellowfin Tuna – This meaty swimmer delivers a boatload of easily digested, premium-quality protein

Pump up your protein intake with Bodybuilding.com’s top 40 ultimate protein picks.

by Matthew Kadey, MS, RD

Let us count the reasons we’re obsessed with protein. For one, you need enough of this benevolent macronutrient to build and repair muscle. It also plays a role in revving fat-burning metabolism and reducing the hunger pangs that can lead to an attack on the vending machine. Additionally, protein works to slow the release of carbohydrates into your bloodstream, which can prevent the sudden spikes in blood sugar that are thought to encourage fat storage and sagging energy levels.

Coconut Oil: The Fat-Burning Fat

What if there were an amazing fat source that tasted, well, like fat, but also helped you burn other fat? There is. It’s virgin coconut oil, a rising star in the nutritional world.

by Brad Chase, BodyBuilding.com

What comes to mind when you see the word “thermogenic?” Heat, probably, since the word itself means “heat generating.” Or maybe you think of a stimulant supplement like caffeine which is known to speed up your metabolism and increase energy expenditure. Maybe you’re taking one of these right now, in the hopes of slimming down. One thing you probably don’t think of is a coconut €”and especially the oil extracted from its flesh. Not that long ago, coconut oil ruled alongside partially hydrogenated soybean oil as the worst of the “bad fats.” Maybe you know them by their other name: trans fatty acids. These were the fats that were shown in repeated studies to increase the risk for heart disease and obesity, in addition to being linked to everything from depression to infertility. They’re the reason you stopped buying movie-theater popcorn!

Given that reputation, it’s OK if you’re skeptical about what I’m going to say next: Coconut oil is shaping up to be one of the world’s premier natural thermogenic agents. But before you go running to the Cineplex, there’s a catch: The processed coconut oil of the past has about as much in common with the healthy virgin coconut oil as Chief Wiggum does with Robocop.

Intrigued? You should be. Let’s crack open the coconut for a closer look.
