{BODY BY WALLY Personal Fitness Training LLC} - THE REALITY OF WHAT ACTUALLY WORKS WHEN IT COMES TO OVERALL FITNESS, EXERCISE, & DIET. We cut through all the garbage and tell you what truly works on getting incredibly fit, and the simplicity of proper eating (dieting). According to Nielsen BookScan, about 5 million diet books are sold in the US alone every year; yet 80% of the population is overweight and/or borderline obese. Our Podcast will INFORM, EDUCATE, and MOTIVATE. Wally has over 5 decades in the world of fitness. We hear a barrage of misinformation about Health & Fitness that is so wrong, that we find it hard to believe in this day and age so much is said that is absolutely false. We see videos that 'claim' the 'proper' technique for a particular exercise, yet if they were to duplicate that same form in front of athletes, or especially in front of a Fitness Certification Co. they would be ridiculed and actually fail the 'live work-shops' part of a fitness training test. AMAZING how people follow them, yet, those that have not trained much can easily believe these charlatans because the 'actor' looks nice and 'sounds' like they know what they are talking about – these people should just STOP IT and open a donut shop. Many of them do look great, but did NOT get that way by these amazingly stupid techniques and wrong information. So here I (Wally) comes in. My background is Calisthenics, Shotokan Karate, Bodybuilding, and the specific discipline of Isometrics and Negatives of which very few people know much about. I was trained in calisthenics by my father who was a 3 time AAU Gold Medalist on the ‘Flying’ rings in the 1940’s, and 2 time U.S. Amputee Golf Champion. I was also trained for a period of time by Rick M., the first American to win in Uechi-ryū (full contact no gear) in 1995 in Okinawa. I was also trained by a former associate at the Nautilus Facility with Dr. Arthur Jones in Deland FL. inventor of Nautilus Gym Equipment who made CIRCUIT & NEGATIVE training famous world-wide in the 1970's. I have also studied Charles Atlas' Dynamic Tension, Jack LaLanne's Isometrics and Calisthenics, and Bruce Lee's ISOMETRIC & NEGATIVE routines. I have been exercising for over 5 decades, and am at the time of this writing, 68 years of age and did 1,006 pushups in just over an hour for my Birthday gift to myself. My Fitness Training Program that I teach is based on a combination of CIRCUIT and INTERVAL systems, blending the old-school with the new; and all Science-based. I am doing these Podcasts to dispel many myths, lies, shenanigans, and out-right ignorance in the fitness world. Thank you so very much for watching, and I hope that you will find these videos informative so that you can get the most out of every single rep, breath, and drop of sweat. Many Blessings, BODY BY WALLY Personal Fitness Training LLC.Psalms 144:1

    RE-THINKING CARDIO

    RE-THINKING CARDIO

    Here are some alternatives for meeting weekly requirements.
    The first step to overcoming these obstacles is to break down the time commitment into manageable segments. For example, 150 minutes is 2.5 hours, which comes to 30 minutes five days a week, or about 20 minutes daily. "And you don’t have to do those 20 to 30 minutes all at once," says Dr. Apovian. "You can further divide into two or three 10-minute daily segments. Everyone has 10 minutes to devote to exercise."
    Next, change your perception of "moderate intensity." "People automatically feel overwhelmed because it sounds difficult, but this level of exertion is not as physically demanding as people may think and is quite doable.

    PART 2: Perimenopause and menopause (40s to Menopause)

    PART 2: Perimenopause and menopause (40s to Menopause)

    What’s happening physiologically
    During the transition between perimenopause and menopause, bone density can decline rapidly, increasing susceptibility to osteoporosis and bone fractures.
    A decrease in lean muscle and an increase in fat can lead to negative metabolic changes, including weight gain, and a higher risk of developing diabetes and heart disease.

    Exercise recommendations
    Resistance training and impact exercises are proven to slow declines in bone density.
    Still, it’s important to have a workout program that also includes flexibility work — yoga, Pilates, static and dynamic stretching, and foam rolling — to prevent poor movement patterns that could compromise joint health.
    Recovery days must be taken between hard workouts, especially if they include jumping or running, to avoid any overuse injuries and give your body time to adapt.
    Regular cardiovascular training plays an essential role in maintaining heart health and body weight, and it can support mental health and combat sleeplessness.

    The Post-Menopausal Period
    Estrogen is very low during the post-menopausal period. As a result, there are some specific things to consider.
    Moderate intensity cardio and interval training have both been shown to decrease arterial stiffness and increase aerobic fitness for women in this stage of life.
    Balance work should also be a part of your regular exercise routine, as it helps prevent falls and lowers your risk of bone fractures.

    The bottom line
    Women of all ages can benefit from a better understanding of the intricate hormonal changes they face throughout their lives.

    Exercise programs must be respectful of the hormonal symptoms of the female reproductive system, adapted appropriately to provide therapeutic and general health benefits, and ultimately give women a sense of connection to their bodies.

    PART 1: How Female Hormones Affect Exercise: (Ages: 12-40’s)

    PART 1: How Female Hormones Affect Exercise: (Ages: 12-40’s)

    The Teenage Years (12–18)
    During the teenage years, the young female body has already undergone puberty, and the menstrual cycle is becoming more predictable due to monthly fluctuations in estrogen and progesterone levels 
    What’s happening physiologically
    This is an important time to be physically active. Doing so enhances bone mineral density and helps maintain a healthy balance between body fat and lean muscle mass.
    Studies show that 80–90% of female bone mass is accrued by age 16, with the development of lean muscle helping to stimulate bone density augmentation.

    Exercise recommendations
    Sports and athletics provide an opportunity for growth in many areas, especially when it comes to refining physical skills, increasing strength and endurance, and establishing perseverance to exercise.
    While being physically active has numerous benefits, balance is key when it comes to regular exercise and recovery.
    It’s important not to overly tax the TEENAGE body with too much intense exercise, as this can result in the loss of regular menstrual cycles, hormonal dysregulation, and a deterioration in bone density.
    Adequate sleep, recovery days, hydration, and — most importantly — a healthy diet are imperative, with food intake supporting the amount of exercise performed (in other words, no calorie restriction!) 
    Beyond that, impact and weight bearing exercises, plyometrics, and resistance training are ideal for increasing bone mineral density


    Young Adult and Reproductive Years (18–40s)
    The menstrual cycle begins on day one of your period, with very low levels of hormones during the first half of the month. After mid-month ovulation, estrogen and progesterone begin to rise and continue to climb throughout the second half of the cycle until the next one begins 
    What’s happening physiologically
    Because hormone levels are at their lowest on day one of your period, this is when your body is most resilient and ready to work hard. Following mid-month ovulation, progesterone gradually rises, increasing your body temperature, heart rate, and respiratory rate  
    Exercise recommendations
    At this stage of life, it’s important to coordinate your workout intensity with your menstrual cycle.
    Hormone levels are low at the beginning of the month, so this is the time to prioritize intense exercise like high intensity interval training (HIIT), plyometrics, powerlifting, heavy weightlifting, hill repeats, and other rigorous exercise, with at least 1 day of recovery between hard workouts.
    Also, due to low estrogen levels during the first half of the menstrual cycle through ovulation, women are at a higher risk of anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injuries.
    Activities that require quick changes in direction or side-to-side cutting, including soccer or downhill skiing, should be pursued with caution during this phase, and it’s critical to mind proper knee placement during squats, lunges, jumps, and repetitive cardio.
    After mid-cycle ovulation
    Hot exercise environments should be avoided, and moderate intensity, gentle movement is most beneficial. Great options include easy cardio, yoga, Pilates, walks, bike rides, and hikes.

    HOW MUCH PROTEIN

    HOW MUCH PROTEIN

    THE RDA IS A LOT LESS THAN OTHER GUIDELINES, MOST OF WHICH ARE MUCH HIGHER. I AM USING MY OWN AVERAGE SO I CAN DETERMINE MY NUMBERS ARE WITHIN SAFE AND ACCEPTED PARAMETERS FOR THE POPULACE.

    BODYWEIGHT (BW) X % OF PROTEIN RECOMMENDED = GRAMS (GM) OF PROTEIN TO BE INGESTED PER DAY.
    FORMULA: BW / 2.2 X .8 - 1.7 (Sedentary/Pro Bodybuilder/Powerlifter/ Elite Athlete).

    Examples: FOR EXACT NUMBERS
    165lbs / 2.2 = 75 X  .8 = 60GM. Sedentary
    1.1 = 83GM. Pro Bodybuilder
    1.5=113GM. Powerlifter
    1.7 = 128GM. Elite Athlete

    SHORTCUT: (Sedentary/Pro Bodybuilder/Powerlifter/ Elite Athlete).
    165 X .36% = 60GM
    1.1 = X .50% = 83
    1.5 = X .69% = 116
    1.7 = X .78%129

    FITNESS GUIDELINES – an OVERVIEW

    FITNESS GUIDELINES – an OVERVIEW

    HYPERTROPHY: In order to be in top physical condition, a person must keep the intensity level to the utmost. As you know, for Hypertrophy (muscle building, as a bodybuilder) enough Sets must be done for each body part (7-12ish) and the Reps must around 6-12. 
    Not all sets are to be done to failure, just maybe (not an exact science since the actual intensity can and will vary due to each person’s level of “insanity”), but complete failure (being, not one more rep could be done even if your life were on the line). Do this in the last 1or 2 sets for that particular body part for the MAJOR muscle exercise, such as the Bench, not necessarily DB flies. Loads of 70-80% of maximum ability are need to boost muscle fiber frictional and subsequent hypertrophy.
    GLYCOGEN must replenish in the muscles to at least 80% so a person can have the strength to keep lifting as heavy as possible in order to must the muscle under enough stress so as to tear them down, in which they then repair and become larger over time. Increase your carbohydrate intake to restore glycogen in the muscles.
    REST should be 60 seconds to 3 minutes depending upon the exertion level. So, biceps may take you 60 or so seconds for arms, but doing squats for legs will exhaust you much more, thereby taking about (again, not an exact number) 90 seconds to 3 minutes. 
    FYI: Power lifters rest 3-5 minutes between sets in order to recoup close to 90-100% of their strength. Note: Of course, after a few sets strength decreases with muscle exhaustion…but I am talking about this percentage in relation to all you can do in that moment of time.
    DAYS OF REST: Many people truly think that training 1.5 to 2 hours 5-6 days a week is good, well, it MAY be IF it is done correctly. 1-2 and even 3 days rest between certain exercises, and not exercising more than 45 min to 1 hour. If someone is training for a competition, then that is different. Though a professional athlete trains many hours, they are under a team doctor supervision, can afford all the good food and the finest training parameters.

    MUSCULAR ENDURANCE, whereby you already have the strength and size you want, but now want to have the muscular endurance. In this, you rest just enough to catch your breath. This type training will also vastly improve your cardiovascular endurance. Reps should be 12-20.
    MUSCLE CONCENTRATION: Most people never concentrate on the muscle itself that they are exercising. When one does a wide-grip pull-up for the back, many just pull up never engaging and contracting the back muscles as they so this, this is why about 80% of the people in gyms take so long to achieve their goals, or not at all.
