Alexandra answers training questions on KZSB radio
What do fitness pros think about when working with tough clients? Sometimes drastic action is warranted if a client is a big pain in the Gluteus Minnieus Mouseius. Does non-compliance with a trainer’s advice mean the client needs to sign up for more sessions or hit the road? Or floor? Fun and Fit are experts in non-compliance as they used to get in trouble all the time back in the catwoman glasses days.
How fabulous are you if you have a fantastically large number of shoes, yet an embarrassingly small amount of upper-body strength? If your upper-body workout consists of swiping your credit card through the machine and raising martini glasses, it’s time for a heart-to-heart about triceps, biceps, shoulders, chest, back and abs. Grab a drill and let’s start an upper-body overhaul!
Twitter can be a dangerous place. Especially if you befriend people who know about home design and decoration! This is a special “challenge” post – take these tubs? shoes? and make a blog post. Seven people – seven different posts – one topic. Read them all and laugh yourself into a lather!
Sound the allergy alarm! Lou wants to know if there’s a way to trick her body with activity so it won’t realize she is running in the morning, the worst time of day for pollen and spores buffeting her about. Is it possible to out-run wind-borne allergens? Would Run DMC have any idea?
What is the deal with muscle soreness post-exercise? If you have a “Rubenesque” figure, does that mean you are like Pee-Wee Herman, aka Paul Reubens? Do personal trainers have it in for their clients? 25% cardio + 25% resistance training + 50% good nutrition = 100% sore hiney!
Ready to wave bye-bye to flapping triceps? Or to 1920s flappers? And we’re not just flappin’ our jaws here people. You can get rid of that underarm overachievement that keeps going when you want to stop… but only if you follow Fun and Fit’s advice. Velcro is not enough.
If you’re bulgy and you know it, clap your hands. (repeat) If you’re bulgy and you know it, then your knees will surely show it, (keep singing; we have work to do). Nancy’s naughty knees have awnings over the kneecaps. And she doesn’t think that’s flap-tastic. Can she focus and find a way to forever flee the flab?
Did you find some back fat you desperately want to lose but can’t figure out how to give it back? Any chance back fat would look better on your front? Hey now, Fun and Fit thought of it first! Higher math and lower calorie intake leads to less fat, but is that enough to overcome your genetic destiny??!! Call your parents and ask for a rebate.
Losing weight: Is it just about cardio activity and how many kcals you take in and burn? Did you know that weight training might just be the best way to train your weight? You can’t lose some bulk without lifting some bulk (Weights that is. Black Gold. Texas Tea. — Obscure tv reference). Jed Clampett vs. She-Hulk. Hulk and Bulk–makes a catchy name for a snack food.
