Resistance training should be apart of anyone’s weekly exercise regimen.
It’s not about gaining mass, unless you want to, it’s about overall health, strength, and wellbeing.
You don’t need to do crossfit, Olympic lifts, power lifting, etc. unless that’s what you enjoy.
Keeping it simple with functional movements and some HIIT every now and then is all you need to stay healthy in terms of brian and body
Personally, I start my day with resistance training 3 days a week and typically it’s either fully fasted or it’s fueled by a “fat” coffee with the following:
👉🏼 @kerrygoldusa grass-fed butter
👉🏼 @gardenoflife MCT oil with very little lauric acid (C-12) for instant brain energy in the form of ketones
👉🏼 @wildfoodsco reishi or lions mane 🍄 powder
👉🏼 and @perfectketones nootropic for added ketone energy and cognitive function support.
The other days of the week are compiled or MAHR (mac aerobic heart rate) for leak fat oxidation (fat burning) and gymnastics rings and movements for core and shoulder work. I also add in sprint intervals each 7-10 days.
Personally, my training is geared towards BMX and is a bit more intense than the non-athlete needs to train. It’s also been built over years of training and being coached.
Bottom line- find a way to move your body every day, get some resistance training in your schedule, and add in HIIT and sprints once in a while. Your brain and body will thank you!
Oh! And, eat more healthy fats! 🙏🏼💚✌️
