    The Top 5 Things to Be Your Physical Best with Sheree Burton

    The Top 5 Things to Be Your Physical Best with Sheree Burton

    Lisa is joined by Sheree Burton, a trainer and coach for over a decade. Sheree has helped thousands of women be their best selves. Sheree, 44, is a busy mom of 3 and wife of Emmy Award-winning actor - Steve Burton. Her workouts are challenging but fun and she knows how to make any woman feel at ease especially when first getting into fitness. Sheree is full of unique ways to get fitness into your daily regime and her nutrition coaching and skills help women achieve life-long habits with healthy eating. 
    Here are the five things!1. Stay hydrated! A minimum of half our body weight in ounces just to stay hydrated. When you add in exercise, you need to add to this number. Sheree personally aims for 1 gallon a day. The harder you work out the more your body needs water.
    2. Do at least 30-60 min of exercise 4-5 days per week. Anything that gets your heart rate up. Grab some weights and do resistance training - it really helps with overall toning up and muscle definition. Some of Sheree's favorites are squats, walking lunges, push-ups, and lying leg lifts. 
    3. Abs and most all of it are made in the kitchen! You cannot out-train a bad diet, so COUNT YOUR CALORIES! Know what you’re eating. Make sure you’re consuming enough protein throughout the day. Without it, you cannot build and maintain lean muscle. Download a calorie counter and figure out where you need to be based on you and your goals. 
    4. SLEEP - 7-9 hours of sleep a night. We often forget about how important this is. Lack of sleep can affect our hormones and overall brain function making it more difficult to lose weight or stay on track.
    5. Avoid or drastically limit alcohol. Alcohol is not your friend when trying to lose weight or get “beach body ready”. Alcohol has too much sugar, calories, and carbs - and it will definitely hinder all your hard work.

    Weight Lifting Is a Waste of Time with Dr. John Jaquish

    Weight Lifting Is a Waste of Time with Dr. John Jaquish

    Lisa is joined by John Jaquish, PhD.. Dr. Jaquish has spent years researching and developing improved approaches to health. He is the inventor of the most effective bone density building medical technology which is now partnered with Tony Robbins and OsteoStrong for rapid clinic deployment. Inventor of X3, a technology that is proven to develop muscle much faster than conventional weight lifting, all with the lowest risk of joint injury, Dr. Jaquish methods are used in training the world's most elite athletes and associations such as the entire Miami Heat organization, various NFL and NBA players, as well as Olympians. Dr. Jaquish’s book explaining his non-conventional approach to human physiology is a WSJ best seller.
    He joins Lisa today to talk about his book Weight Lifting Is a Waste of Time : So Is Cardio, and There’s a Better Way to Have the Body You Want.
    Book Description:
    You've been lifting for a few years. When you take your shirt off, do you look like a professional athlete? Do you even look like you work out?
    Many fitness "experts" defend weights and cardio like they are infallible, but where are the results? Why does almost nobody look even marginally athletic?
    Fitness may be the most failed human endeavor, and you are about to see how exercise science has missed some obvious principles that when enacted will turn you into the superhuman you always wanted to be.
    In Weight Lifting is a Waste of Time, Dr. John Jaquish and Henry Alkire explore the science that supports this argument and lay out a superior strength training approach that has been seen to put 20 pounds of muscle on drug-free, experienced lifters (i.e., not beginners) in six months.
