Meet Steen. When Steen turned 50 earlier this year he gave himself the goal of becoming as fit as when he was 25. Four weeks at UP and his results are amazing. Now how many 25 year olds actually look like this? 🤔

When in doubt make it harder not easier – exercise for fat loss does not mean finding comfortable machines to park your butt on.

Shape up here: http://up.tips/SingaporeFLFB?gp

Think compound, multi-joint exercises over isolation movements (most of the time). Don’t fall into the “light weights for fat burning” myth. Yes, higher reps will keep you more active than lower reps and they have their place, but if you want to maximally tax your body you need to lift progressively heavier loads. When paired in the right order, low rep “fat loss oriented” training can be beyond brutal and work far better than light pumping sessions.

In light of International Chocolate Day today, here are few fun facts for all you (dark) chocolate lovers out there.

For more nutrition fun facts: https://upfitness.com.sg/enquiries/?li

1. Did you know that organic dark chocolate with 85% plus cocoa is beneficial for many women with PMS?

2. Dark chocolate contains flavonoids and antioxidants which can help with blood flow, however ensure that you opt for at least 70% cocoa to boost the antioxidant power. On a daily basis, antioxidants play an important role in reducing cell death, which over the long term helps us live longer, reduces the signs of ageing and fights off diseases such as cancer. This super food has also been shown to increase mood as it can be eaten as a treat.

Does your diet look like something in the pie chart? If your answer is yes and you want to get shredded in time for summer you need to CLEAN OUT YOUR DIET.

If you’re new to this and want a kick-start in fat loss, we recommend starting with a low carb approach. The basic premise of it is to follow a diet high in protein, vegetables and moderate amounts of healthy fats for anyhere between 10 and 21 days.

WHY?

An initial two-week low carb period can reduce body fat from anywhere between 2-4%. This is great for motivation, building excitement and creating focus for the weeks ahead.

To make it super easy, here’s what you need to do:

1. Have a protein goal
For men, aim for 1.2g per pound of bodyweight
For women, aim for 1g per pound of bodyweight

2. Eat an abundance of green, leafy vegetables with each meal
Think broccoli, kale, spinach

3. Add healthy fats to each meal*
A good aim is 0.5g per pound of bodyweight
Think avocados, walnuts, salmon

4. Stay hydrated
Aim for 3 to 4 litres of water a day

*This is critical. The number one reason people fail on low carbohydrate diets is they go low fat as well, turning it into a very low-calorie diet.
