5 of the most common questions I’ve been asked so far this year

1. What’s the best ‘diet’ pill?

I am, and at the same time, I am not surprised how much this question pops up, in fact the other day I had a lady do a consult with me just so that I could tell her what I thought the best diet pill was.

My response to her was “The best diet pill is the gym”.

Most people are paying 35ish dollars a month for a gym membership and your typical diet pills run you about the same AND I PROMISE there is NOT a diet pill that will give you the same results as busting your butt on the gym floor.  A diet pill is a supplement, meaning it supplements what you are already doing.

My favorite exercise for a sexy back side ;)

New video today! This is another exercise that all my clients know that I ‘m notorious with… RDL’s (Romanian Dead Lifts)

 

This exercise should be a pillar in anyone lower body training; this works what’s called the posterior chain (hamstrings, glutes, lower to mid back). Proper development of these muscles ensures that your body is well balanced front to back and helps reduce injury. That may sound weak but how many people do you know with quad injuries? Most occur in the lower back… so let’s fix that problem and make it look good while doing it!

 

***I kept the video very basic because I could go in a lot of detail of proper mechanics and techniques depending on your body type and movement pattern***

 

Take a look and tell me what you think!

(side note: Every week I’m working on providing you better and better videos so any suggestions that you think would help make these better for you let me know at info@fitnessrevolutionrowlett.com )
