The making of an action hero body - Entertainment - Movies
When I was hired to train an actor for an action film, the studio executives would express how important it was to transform their body so they looked like an action hero. That's why I made the decision to utilize the same method of dieting and training I used to win many of my champion body building competitions. Matt Damon and Kevin Spacey were extremely excited to work with me, which made my job a lot easier than it had been with some of my other celebrity clients. I have the actors do weight training in the morning and cardio at night. The purpose of separating the weight training and cardiovascular training for 6 to 9 hours is because weight training causes the body to secrete anabolic hormones (muscle building) and cardiovascular exercises cause the body to secrete catabolic hormones (fat burning).

Skinny Overnight Oats in a Jar
A hearty healthy breakfast packed with fiber, vitamins, and nutrients... in a jar (no cooking required)! Now that the weather is warm, almost every weekday morning after the gym I have either a green smoothie or a bowl of berries, topped with some crunchy granola, nuts and chia seeds with a little almond milk. It's my favorite quick breakfast and fills me up. Overnight Oats in a Jar is very popular on Pinterest these days. Have you tried them? Some add Greek yogurt to their oats for more protein, but personally I'm not a fan of the tangy taste of yogurt in my oatmeal.

Try wrapping your head around this: Your face is a picking time bomb.

In so many words.

Paleo Chocolate Chip Cookies
I am a big fan of anything that justifies eating five cookies at 7 in the morning before working out… Which is why “paleo” and “cookies” are really a match made in CrossFit Heaven. I tend to be THAT girl who brings in baked goods to a work-out class and tortures everyone with the overwhelming aroma of freshly baked cookies. But everyone was singing a different tune when I brought these babies in!
