Amaud and Hany head over to Metroflex Long Beach to meet up with 4X Olympia Men’s Physique Champ Jeremy Buendia to train FST-7 chest in a special 1on1 training session. Hines wanted to know what it was like to train with the champ and quickly found out why Rambod and Buendia have been so successful together.

“During lunch I learned that Amaud won the Overall Men’s Physique title at one of my Spectrum show. So I wanted to show him what it takes to train to be the best. So I had Jeremy come down and we put him through a tough FST-7 workout. He hung in there and never backed off when I pushed him. That’s what it takes to be a champion. I’m really happy he won the VIP contest because I know he’ll put what he learned with me to good use when he gets back to the gym to prep for the 2019 Arnold Amateur. Good luck!” said Rambod.

Amaud hung rep for rep with Jeremy getting into static holds and squeezing after each exercise to pump excess blood into the muscle.

Amaud went on to say, “I thought I trained hard back home, but this experience was on a whole other level. I’m honored to train with Hany Rambod and the rest of the team. I can’t wait to get back home and put what I learned here to good use for my contest prep.”

HIIT Cardio Basics

If you are the type of person who spends hours on the treadmill and sees no results from your hard work, it’s time to change up your way of thinking when it comes to fat burning. The days of low-intensity steady-state (LISS) cardio are gone. Enter the new world of HITT cardio. HIIT cardio has been booming for the past several years and isn’t going anywhere thanks to the benefits you can achieve from this brief, yet extremely intense form of cardio.

Those who utilize HIIT cardio have found they can improve their endurance, enhance their fat-burning, increase glucose metabolism, and can even build strength. What’s even better is that many are utilizing this powerful form of cardio to drop unwanted weight while at the same time maintaining their hard-earned lean muscle mass.

How does HIIT cardio work?

I wish we could make it seem more complicated than it really is, but the fact of the matter is, HIIT cardio is a very simple and basic form of cardio. The effectiveness comes in the intensity, not the actual form of cardio itself. A single HIIT cardio session can be done in as little as 15-30 minutes. Let me explain all of the particulars.

As with any workout, you are going to want to warm up properly. This can be as simple as walking for five minutes to get the blood pumping and muscles ready for work. Following your warm-up is where things start to take form and the intensity is kicked up a notch – ok, many notches. HIIT cardio uses periods of intense 100% max-effort workloads followed by low-intensity recovery periods. If you were to graph the workload, you would see nothing but a bunch of peaks and valleys on the graph paper.

HIIT cardio workouts can be completed both indoors as well as outdoors. Personally, I find enjoyment in the great outdoors versus being confined to a gym or home treadmill – but to each his or her own as your mileage may vary.

Each HIIT cardio round will be as follows:

• 30-second max-effort period
• 60-second low-effort recovery period

Each “round” will yield you a total of 90 seconds. 10 total rounds would give you a 15-minute workout (not counting warm-up/cool-down) and doubling that if you did the math will give you a 30-minute workout.

What would a HIIT cardio workout look like?

Assuming you’ve already finished a warm-up, you will start things off with an all-out 30-second sprint which will immediately be followed by a 60-second walk as a recovery period. If you don’t like to or can’t sprint, you can do a max effort on something like an upright bicycle, an elliptical, a rower, a jump rope, or even an Airdyne bike. Following this method will have you start your intense bout and has you end with the same high-intensity for your last bout before you start your cool-down. As mentioned above, decide how many rounds you wish to complete to achieve your 15-30 minute cardio workout.

I know there will be people who like to come up with excuses and say they don’t have a gym membership and it’s cold/rainy outside so they can’t fit in their HIIT cardio session for the day. Well, guess what? You can even use indoor activities such as jumping jacks, running in place, burpees, mountain climbers, and similar movements to fulfill your cardio requirements. Use your imagination and if achieving your goals is a priority to you, you’ll skip the excuses and get in your HIIT cardio sessions.

5 On the Go Meal Prep Tips to Save Time

When it comes to achieving your health and fitness goals, one area you can’t neglect is your nutrition.  One specific part of nutrition that has been focused on heavily lately is meal prep – and no, it’s not just for competitors.  To put you in the best position to see the progress you demand, I have come up with five on the go meal prep tips that you can utilize to save time and move you closer to your goals.

  1. Clear Tupperware is a must

Have you ever been in search for something in the refrigerator but you can’t remember the container you put it in?  If you live a busy life, you don’t have time to be pulling out every container and looking inside.  For that reason, you need to invest in some clear Tupperware containers.  They can be plastic or glass (your choice) but they need to be 100% clear.  Take the guesswork out of your on the goal meal prep and know exactly what is in front of you each time you open the refrigerator door.

  1. Cut everything up prior to storing

Your active lifestyle doesn’t allow you the luxury of downtime.  For that reason, you can’t be fumbling around in the kitchen every morning getting your meals ready for the day.  Therefore, you want to cut up all of your ingredients prior to storing them.  This is one of the best on the go meal prep tips to save time.  For example, if you have chicken and asparagus for one meal, cut everything up prior to storing it in the clear Tupperware container.  This will not only save you time in the morning but also save you from needing to carry a knife around with you just in order to eat your healthy meal on the go.

  1. Have a cooler you can travel with

I’m not going to name drop brands here, you can easily do a Google search for meal prep bags and coolers.  Some might not think they are worth the money but, in my opinion, they are worth every penny if you plan on using it every day.  Most come with slots to put each of your meals (they range from 2-7 meals depending on the brand and size of the bag/cooler), a place to put your frozen ice packs, an area for silverware, space for supplements (such as vitamins or whatever else you use), among other useful pockets and compartments.  If you invest in a good bag you can use it for many years.

  1. Prep full meals in advance for grab and go convenience

One of the best on the go meal prep tips to save time that I can recommend to you is to prep full meals in each clear Tupperware container.  When you are running late, the last thing you need to worry about is measuring out your ingredients and putting them in individual Tupperware containers.  Do it in advance so you don’t need to worry about it later.  Wake up, grab your cooler/bag, toss in your meals, and out the door you go without a hiccup.

  1. Spice things up a bit

Just because you are constantly consuming pretty much the same foods doesn’t mean they have to be boring.  A meal prep tip that I recommend all the time is to use spices whenever possible and to change them up often.  If you like things spicy, use spices that add some heat to your meals.  If you want to flavor your chicken, add some seasonings to it.  There are many zero-calorie or low-calorie choices available at the grocery store.  The key is to find ones that you enjoy and keep them on hand at all times to provide you with a good mix and variety to choose from to be used on your chicken, fish, steak, vegetables, or whatever else you decide to add flavor to.

Water Intake and Fat Loss. Why is it Important?

When it comes to fat loss, many people look to reduce calories and exercise more.  While this is a great idea, one area that many people fail to fully grasp is their water intake.  It should come as no surprise that we all need water in order to live and function.  But research has found that water intake could actually help you with your weight loss and fat loss goals.

In this article, I want to lay out some of the research surrounding water intake as it pertains to fat loss.  I think the information provided will open the eyes of many and help them realize that through their water intake specifically, they have the ability to improve their weight management results.

2 Major Benefits of Water Intake for Fat Loss
There are two major benefits of water intake for fat loss that some people understand, yet many are missing the boat on.  By simply increasing water intake, you have the ability to put yourself in a better position to lose weight and increase your fat loss potential.  You can consider the water intake benefits below as simple fat loss hacks that don’t require much effort at all on your part.

  1. Reduce appetite

One thing that not many people realize is that the sensation of hunger can be subsided by simply drinking water.  If you are hungry, try drinking a glass of water and then waiting for around 15 minutes.  If you find after 15 minutes you are still hungry, then go ahead and have one of your meals.  Water itself can crush hunger pangs throughout the day and reduce your overall appetite.

In fact, if you drink water before a meal, it has been shown to increase weight loss over the course of several weeks.  By, in a sense, pre-filling your stomach prior to sitting down for a meal, your stomach already has something in it so the sensation to eat more during a meal is reduced which can help prevent over-eating.

  1. Burn more calories

When you drink (cold) water, you are actually helping to increase your resting energy expenditure.  What this means is that your body has the ability to burn more calories even while at rest.  The amazing part about this is that the effects of raising resting energy expenditure anywhere between 24-30% can take place in as little as 10 minutes after drinking cold water and can last over 60 minutes.

Making the Switch to Water

American’s love their sugary beverages – which is part of the reason for the obesity epidemic we face in thiscountry.  Water is a calorie-free option that many should be making the switch to.  Not only will increasing water intake save money in the long-term rather than purchasing sugary beverages, but it will also save waistlines as well due to consuming fewer overall calories from liquids.

For the longest time, the recommendation for water intake was drinking eight 8-ounce glasses of water each day.  Unfortunately, this has been found to simply not be accurate for everyone.  Some people can get away with as little as four while others need more than eight.  Drinking 1-2 liters of water per day, however, can help you with your fat loss efforts.

What I would recommend is drinking a glass of water before all of your meals.  Not only will it help you stay properly hydrated, but it will help keep you full, satiated, and aid in weight management.

It should be noted that those who exercise regularly and sweat will need a higher overall water intake when compared to those who are sedentary simply due to the amount of water that was lost through sweat during workouts that needs to be replenished.  Make sure you not only drink water throughout your workouts but also following.
