    Curtis Harwell Discusses How To Fix That Adrenal System and Be Energized

    in Fitness

    Now let me ask you, does any of this sound familiar?



     Do you feel exhausted, overwhelmed, and stressed all the time?
     Do you need five cups of coffee or a constant infusion of soda just to make it through the day?
     Do you have trouble waking up, falling asleep, or staying asleep, no matter which herbal supplements you try?
     Do you find yourself feeling constantly irritable or on edge?
     Do you feel that you need to exercise to stay in shape even though you’re exhausted when you do?
     Do you feel as though everything you eat turns to fat?
     Are you always hungry, frequently craving sweets, or tempted by “carbo-binges”?
     Are you plagued by irregular or painful periods or PMS?
     Are you struggling with peri-menopause or menopause: lowered sex drive, vaginal dryness, mood swings, and hot flashes?
     Do you find yourself feeling forgetful, “foggy,” or unable to concentrate?
     Do you find that you do better when you’re always on the go?
     Do you find that you actually enjoy adrenaline rushes and feel a little bored without a crisis to handle?
     Are you struggling with anxiety, depression, or despair?

  • Curtis Harwell Discusses Supplements On His Most Needed List

    in Fitness

    To be the best you must take every advantage you can, and nowhere does this precept hold truer then in the uncompromisingly tough sport of bodybuilding. As each year progresses, it can become harder to gain the competitive edge.


    Age, an adjustment and acclimation to training that causes slower progress and the general complexity of life with its many demands and issues can all conspire to thwart our training efforts.


    While training intensity can be accomplished trough a targeted training program and an ability to adequately stimulate our muscles is something the motivated and determined bodybuilder often has no problem doing, muscle recovery is another issue. It is especially important at a time of the year when social demands and incorrect eating combine to stifle our progress.


    This is why it is particularly important to fill any nutritional gaps with quality supplementation, a practice that can be done all year round for maximal results in muscle size and strength.

    Curtis Harwell Discusses How To Get The Right Trainer

    in Fitness

    To protect yourself, and to make sure you're getting your money's worth, there are a few guidelines to observe. There's also a couple of litmus tests you can throw at your prospective trainer. Learn what they are.


    To protect yourself, and to make sure you're getting your money's worth, there are a few guidelines to observe. There's also a couple of litmus tests you can throw at your prospective trainer. Learn what they are.


    Sometimes we can all benefit from professional help. No, I'm not suggesting you've gone loco and need a shrink (though it is a danger of strict dieting) but a Personal Trainer. At least once a year to make sure your once strict form has not mutated into a potential back-breaker. But how do you find the right one?


    There is a myriad of PT licensing organizations out there, and there are no federal regulations about who can or cannot call himself a Personal Trainer. An unskilled PT can cause as much damage as an unskilled chiropractor, but while the chiropractor must go to school for many years and remains under scrutiny through his career, the PT can basically write out his own license on the back of a piece of cardboard and get started. Make sense? Nope. But that's the way it is.

    Curtis Harwell Discusses How To Pick The Right Fitness Program

    in Fitness

    Ask yourself these questions to create a workout tailored to your needs and preferences.


    Fitness programs abound, from yoga and Pilates to step aerobics and strength training — either at home or in a gym. So which type of fitness program is right for you? Ask yourself these questions to figure it out.


    What is your current fitness level?


    You probably have some idea of how fit you are. But assessing and recording baseline fitness scores can help you set your fitness goals and measure your progress. To assess your aerobic and muscular fitness, flexibility, and body composition, consider recording:



    Your pulse rate before and immediately after walking 1 mile (1.6 kilometers)
    How long it takes to walk 1 mile
    How many pushups you can do at a time
    How far you can reach forward while seated on the floor with your legs in front of you
    Your waist circumference at the level of your hipbones
    Your body mass index


    Do you have any health issues?


    If you are age 50 or older, haven't exercised for some time, or have chronic medical conditions, such as diabetes or heart disease, it's a good idea to to consult your doctor before beginning an exercise program.


    It's also good to keep in mind that as you age, impaired balance, decreased elasticity of tendons and other factors can limit your exercise capacity. Injuries also are more frequent, and recovery takes longer. But that doesn't mean you shouldn't exercise or that you won't benefit from it. Just be sure to seek input from your doctor or an exercise therapist about how to create a program that's appropriate for you.

    Curtis Harwell Discusses How To Improve Your Relationships With Fitness

    in Fitness

    Some people think and actually feel that working out is ONLY about getting a hot body and looking good. Sorry my friend, getting your fitness game up can solve other problems too. Fitness is linked to improving all sorts of things like health (obviously) career and body image. Living a healthy lifestyle can also help improve your relationships.


    This past week while catching up on the news, a story came up about a woman who lost 130 lbs after her divorce. Not sure if her weight was one of factors as to why the divorce happened. Or if the relationship was the cause of her being overweight. But how you look, and feel most definitely factors into relationship dynamics.


    Be Happy


    Studies time, after time have proven that frequent exercise makes people happy. When you start and finish a work project it makes you happy. The same goes for working out. It’s hard to get started, but when you do and finish your routine you feel accomplished. It makes you feel good about yourself, on top of the endorphins that are released because of your sweat session. And happy people want to be around happy people.


    Feel Good


    There are a lot of people out there who would rather not work out because they don’t like to sweat. Lets give those people the blank stare, and forget about their ridiculous excuse as to why they opt out of working out. You know how good you feel after a workout. When you feel good about yourself, other people notice this.

    Curtis Harwell Discusses Strength Training After 45 Years of Age

    in Fitness

    Although there is mounting evidence that muscle-strength training provides key health benefits, most middle-aged and older adults in the United States don't engage in this type of exercise, according to new research.


    Less than one-quarter of adults over 45 meet the muscle-strengthening recommendations set by the Department of Health and Human Services, the study found.


    Strength is essential for promoting health and fitness and staying independent, researchers advised. Muscle-strengthening activities include yoga, sit-ups, push-ups, weights, elastic bands and weight machines. In many cases, people use their own body weight for resistance during strength training.

    Curtis Harwell Discusses What Is Losing Weight Versus Fat Loss Again!!!!!

    in Fitness

    Weight loss is one of the hottest topics ever. Everyone seems to be trying to lose weight nowadays. But what’s the difference between weight loss & fat loss? People seem to use both terms interchangeably. After reading this post you’ll understand the difference between weight loss & fat loss, but also which one you should aim for and how. Weight Loss vs. Fat Loss. What’s the difference? Let’s start by defining weight loss & fat loss so you know what I mean here. Weight Loss. You want to lower your body-weight, the sum weight of your bones, muscles, organs, body fat, … Fat Loss. You want to lower your body fat, the amount of fat your body carries. Healthy goals are 10% body fat for men and 15% for women. Problems with Weight Loss. If you want to lose weight, it’s most likely because you carry too much fat. There are people who must lose weight, like athletes before a competition, but most want fat loss. So stop weighing yourself.


    Unreliable. Your body-weight can fluctuate daily since it’s influenced by your stomach/bowel/bladder content, water loss/retention, muscle loss/gain, fat loss/gain, … You’ll have no idea what’s going on. Irrelevant. 2 people with similar height can weigh the same, but look completely different because one has lower body fat than the the other. Check the picture at the top for an example. The last point shows why the BMI standard is flawed: it doesn’t take your body fat into account. Both guys in the top picture have the same BMI, but one is clearly healthier: his body fat is lower.

    Curtis Harwell Discusses How Digestion Affects Fat Loss or Gain

    in Fitness

    Having a healthy digestive system ensures your weight-loss plan will be successful. To improve your digestion to lose weight, make sure to consume adequate fiber and fluids and increase your physical activity if possible.


    Fiber -- Feel Light and Regular


    Eat more fibrous foods to increase weight loss and prevent constipation. Fiber resists your digestive enzymes, meaning it is not broken down but stays intact as it passes through your digestive tract. As it travels, it forms a gel and absorbs some excess fat, cholesterol and sugar, which is passed through your stool. Only plant foods such as vegetables, fruits, whole grains, nuts, seed, beans and legumes provide fiber. Nonstarchy vegetables such as greens, tomatoes, broccoli and eggplant are good low-calorie options for weight loss because they contain only about 25 calories per 1 cup raw or 1/2 cup cooked.


    Many Nutrients Contribute to Metabolism


    A healthy metabolism is critical for successful weight loss and digestion. Many high-fiber foods are more nutritious than their low-fiber alternatives; whole grains, example, offer more nutrients than refined white grains. High-fiber foods contain more vitamins and minerals important for your metabolism, including B vitamins. This family of vitamins is involved in many metabolic processes, such as the breakdown of food into energy.
