This is NOT a typo! It's just another Manic Monday, Badasses! I figure the best way to wake up our brains for the week ahead is by way of a pop quiz that tests your Badass Fitness IQ. There will be no official grade entered into your GPA, but it's always worth knowing whether we really know all that we think we know about fitness and clean eating. Knowledge and accurate information is power - specifically, power to fuel you along the Badass journey. Eggs should not be eaten daily because they'll raise your cholesterol. Dairy is the only way to get the daily recommended calcium.
You can work your core with: None of the above. All of the above. The best formula for losing weight and staying lean is: A mix of cardio and weightlifting.
A deadlift works which of the following: Glutes, hamstrings and lower back. The best breakfast choice is: Starbucks blueberry scone with a grande vanilla latte. Large bowl of Cascadian Farm granola cereal with low-fat milk. For maximum calorie burn, the best method is: Long endurance runs at a steady moderate pace. Interval training that mixes slower paces with high-intensity bursts of speed.

And going below 20 - especially for females - can mean being too lean yes, there is such a thing! The answer is B. Multiple studies show that those who start off their day with eggs, for example, overall take in fewer calories throughout the day than those who start off with cereal or something else.
So make sure you're getting a mix of lean proteins, healthy fats and complex "good" carbs in your daily eating. You can lift weights two, three, even five days in a row as long as you break up which body parts you work. So think quads today, back tomorrow, biceps and triceps the next day, and hams and glutes the day after.

Muscle burns more calories even at rest than fatty tissue. Cardio like running and cycling is a great calorie burn and will make your heart stronger. But strength training will not only improve cardio performance, it will sculpt those muscles and build the lean muscle tissue that keeps your metabolism humming - while preventing conditions like osteoporosis later on.
Done properly, the deadlift works your glutes and hamstrings as you come up and squeeze the glutes. But it also engages and strengthens your lower back as you work to keep the core tight and your back from being rounded as you come up and down. Well, the blueberry scone calories and latte calories are calorie-dense and filled with sugar and the kind of carbs that will send your blood sugar soaring - then crashing.
