Sweat is a badge of honour after you've put in the effort during your training, but we all wash it off after a workout right? It's the same for your Myzone chest strap, if you want to get the most out of your belt a little TLC is key to ensure it's longevity.
If you’d asked me several years ago about how important walking is I probably would have disregarded it and said to just focus on your training and more traditional forms of cardio e.g. running/cycling. However, your Non Exercise Activity Thermogenesis (NEAT) contributes more to your daily calorie expenditure (& your fat loss results!) than your intense gym workouts!!
Lots of people assume that muscle soreness or DOMS the following day after training is a huge indicator of an ‘effective’ workout. Thinking, if you don’t finish your session absolutely drenched in sweat and feeling like you want to collapse that you didn’t have a “good workout”.
This is for anyone who gets muscle soreness after workouts and wants to know why and how to reduce it.
Unlike your carbohydrate (glycogen) stores, which are limited, body fat is a virtually unlimited source of energy for us. Even those who are lean have enough fat stored in muscle fibres and fat cells to supply up to 100,000 calories!
