In today's society very few people get all the vitamins and minerals that their body requires from their nutrition and therefore should be supplementing with a multivitamin. There are many multivitamins on the market, from the most basic and generic (such as Centrum - targeted at the average person) to full-spectrum and goal-specific (like MHP's Activite Sport - targeted more at athletes and/or the very active individual). When selecting a multivitamin, select the one that is BEST going to suit YOU re goals, needs, AND price.

Welcome to the sixteenth edition of my Newsletter! Too many people get caught up in the "hype" or the next "best thing", spending their time and money focusing on everything BUT the PRIMARY factors that should be the FOUNDATION of their fitness regime re training and nutrition. There IS a reason why the BASICS work, why certain things ARE recommended, and why through time, no matter what else evolves or comes out, they are turned to time and again, included in WITH the "latest and greatest".
In this month's 'Training' section, I have made a few notes on getting back to BASICS re exercises that should form the core of your training programme and from which everything else can be created around.
In this month's 'Nutrition' section, I have given a few tips on how to set up a nutrition plan without having to get all complicated about it.
If there is something that you would like to see in this newsletter, please feel free to contact me to share your thoughts and ideas, and I will be happy to include them in future editions.
One more month left in 2012 - let's make it the most AMAZING one YET!
Back to Basics
There is a reason why some exercises are always used, variations of them incorporated into training programmes of athletes and the general population alike, why trainers often revert back to the "tried and true". The basics WORK. Sure, we should always be experimenting with the new to see what works best for us in particular (based on our goals and needs), but never think that just because something is "old" or "dated" that it is not as effective as the "glitz and glamour" we are constantly bombarded with.
Just because it is SIMPLE does not mean that it cannot achieve results. Taking EVERY individual into account, one's training programme should be SPECIFIC TO THEM and sometimes not everything recommended would be used. That said, the following exercises (or variations of them) can fit into ANY training programme:
Setting Up Your Nutrition Plan
Creating a nutrition plan does not have to be complicated. You do not have to be absolutely "perfect" with everything. Your macros do not have to be a specific ratio. You have to set your nutrition plan up so that it works for YOU. It might take experimenting over time and week-by-week to get all components just right for you, but the "baseline" diet that you set up is simple.
