Sculpt A Six-Pack With This Abs Workout Routine

They’re made in the kitchen – but they’re revealed by training smart. Abs Workout Tips Use isometrics “If your abs are constantly in a contracted position it can pull your body into bad posture – so it’s important to strengthen them but in an elongated position,” says Ben Scott, a former professional cricketer turned performance and fat loss specialist. “Planks and other similar holds are ideal, but don’t just hold for as long as you can because your technique will give up way before you do. Short holds, done correctly, are much more effective.” Don’t just hip flex “The old sit-up with someone holding your feet the ground is dead,” says Scott. “It distorts your hip tilt and you’ll end up using your hip flexors to actually do the move, over-activating a muscle that is shortened anyway. Most people know not to do sit-ups for abs, but watch for the…

The Many Health Benefits of Chia Seeds

Chia seeds became popular in the 1970's in the United States when used in the novelty item, Chia Pets. We all remember the chia pet commercials. Chia pets were clay figures used like a flower pot to grow chia seeds into a plant. The plant resembled hair or fur. Fast forward to 2018. Today, chia seeds are considered "superfoods" and known for their health benefits- this is one of the reasons XR Nutrition includes whole, unaltered Chia Seeds in our Plant-based Protein. What are the health benefits of chia seeds? Before we discuss that we must first learn about what they are and the history behind this amazing food. Chia is a seed from the salvia hispanica plant which is native to Central America. We also get chia seeds from the plant salvia columariae of the Southwest United States and Mexico.

Why You Should Add Phytonutrients to your Diet

Creating healthy, balanced meals for kids can be a challenge when there are so many food options to choose from.  But there's a simple way to make sure that kids – and adults – are getting a healthy balance of nutrients… and the magic word is COLOR. Phytonutrients are natural compounds found in plant foods like vegetables, fruit, whole grains and legumes.  Many of these compounds are the pigments that give these foods their vibrant colors, and they also help to promote health. Many phytonutrients, for example, act as antioxidants which help to protect cells from damage that naturally occurs during everyday metabolism. About 90% of Americans don't eat enough fruits and vegetables, according to a report from the CDC. Eating between 5-9 servings of fruits and vegetables, as recommended by experts, is a difficult task for many families who often find themselves juggling work, their kids' schedules, and household…
