Intuitive Eating | Sushi Night

As a natural foodie I love some sushi. I mean who doesn’t. Now it’s Thursday night and just left Ashley’s Furniture Store. And was craving some Sushi, so we just walked right next door to Hanabi Hibachi & Sushi. I love Sushi but really picky. So I always get The Shrimp on Shrimp Tempura with Sweet Teriyaki Sauce. (Photo)

Now I personally like to utilize a Flexible Dieting Nutritional Approach. But for the past 6 weeks I have been having trouble eating as much. And hitting macro macros consistently hasn’t really been happening. So instead of stressing myself out, I’ve decided to take a “˜macro tracking break’ and follow more of an Intuitive Eating approach.

What is Intuitive Eating?

Intuitive Eating is a way of eating with out tracking your calories/macros, or following a set meal plan. It’s about getting back to the basics and just listening, trusting your body. And with normally following a flexible Dieting approach. There are still zero restrictions on food choices. So the key is to still remain disciplined. As it’s really still easy to fail with intuitive eating.

Abs, Back & Arms Hypertrophy Training

This will be a Hypertrophy Style designed workout.

What is Hypertrophy Training?

Hypertrophy-Specific Training (HST) is a method of strength training intended to induce the fastest muscle growth, or hypertrophy, possible, without losing efficacy over an extended period of time, and without the use of anabolic steroids.

What is Time Under Tension?

Time Under Tension is the total amount of time your muscle(s) are under stress (tension) during any movement. For example, while doing Seated Dumb Bell Press, keep your eyes on the clock (with a second hand) the moment you begin to lower the weight to the moment you stop the exercise indicates your Time Under Tension for that movement. The Time Under Tension concept indicates that your muscles must be kept under stress (tension) for a certain amount of time to stimulate strength and size gains.

No matter what exercise you are doing the KEY things you should be thinking about are….

1. Keeping your core tight.
2. Shoulders DOWN and Back
3. Back flat/spine neutral unless otherwise stated

These are so important in the majority of exercises. Keeping our core tight is going to help us push or pull more weight and protect our spines. Keeping our shoulders down and back will keep tension off of our necks and keeping our back flat will also aid in protecting our spine.
