2.       Topics


a.       Muscles Kicks Depression’s Ass!


                                                               i.      A powerful body can protect the brain, a new study suggests. Toned muscles filter a toxin from the brain and keep depression at bay.


                                                             ii.      By discovering a previously unknown link between muscles and brain in mice, the results provide compelling evidence for the healing power of exercise.


                                                            iii.      Researchers have known that in response to a good workout, muscles produce a compound called PGC-1 alpha 1, which is a general do-gooder around the body. The compound prompts the body to make more blood vessels and mitochondria (power factory for a cell), for instance.


                                                           iv.      To get the benefits, people would need to routinely challenge their muscles, which means regularly upping their exercise regimens.

b.      8 Rules To Stay Fit For Life!


                                                               i.      Train With Just Enough Intensity – Just enough to hit your sweet spot for resistant and get a pump in.


                                                             ii.      Don't Give Yourself Too Many Choices – When going to the gym have a plan of what you will be doing and follow it.


                                                            iii.      Give Yourself a Little Choice – Have a workout plan follow it as closely as you can. Save a few minutes near every gym session and do something you want to devote to. Try a few extra sets to something you feel important are something you like to try out.


                                                           iv.      Take the Long View – Keep a broad perspective on the whole part of one’s life while following a diet plan are a workout routine. If you ate something you shouldn’t have are didn’t finish a set it don’t worry too much over it. Keep in mind that creating a new, healthier lifestyle, and what matters most is that you don't give up. Fitness success is cumulative.


                                                             v.      Quality Over Quantity – Learn proper form and use a proper weight to get the most of working out and not waste your time.


                                                           vi.      Program Your Rest – Keeping a sleeping routine helps the body repair all the damage muscle tissues that were broken down during a workout.


                                                          vii.      Focus on Fun – Don't force yourself to do something you strongly dislike. Pick activities that you enjoy.


                                                        viii.      Think Beyond Your Goals – Having an idea of what you like to be in three to five years is something that is the focus here. Putting on the weight took time, taking it off will be the same.

c.       Whole Eggs vs. Egg Whites


                                                               i.      Egg whites are a nearly pure source of protein, containing almost 100% of their calories from this macro with virtually no fats or carbs.


                                                             ii.      Whole eggs, on the other hand, contain considerable calories and micronutrients that come with the egg yolks. All of the fat-soluble vitamins (A, D, E, K) in eggs are found in the yolk. In addition, the yolks contain the healthy fats and cholesterol necessary for the production of hormones such as testosterone.


                                                            iii.      8 Egg Whites | 4 Whole Eggs


Protein = 28G | Protein = 28G


Carbs = 2G | Carbs = 2G


Fats = 0G | Fats = 21G


Calories = 137 | Calories = 312


                                                           iv.      Best to go with whole eggs over egg whites. Whole eggs have a better amino acid profile to help support bodybuilding results.
