Improve your lifts and reduce pain with this stretch

Here at Cosnett Training Systems nearly all clients that begin training with us exhibit tightness through the hip flexors and quadriceps.

Incline Bicep curls done right

Whats The Best Breakfast

Breakfast - There are many ways to slice it but here's what works best
 

Firstly you always want complete protein at breakfast time. So that means either quality meat, seafood eggs, or some sort of protein powder (not as good as whole food).

 

Smart fats to keep energy chugging along through out the morning so coconut oil, nuts, eggs again, butter, ghee and fishoil

 

If fat loss if your goal its also good to add in fibrous veggies.
