Favorite Nutrition Hacks - CFTNT Training Article


temp-post-image




Now that I have your attention I want to apologize for using the word hack. There are no hacks or tricks you can do to improve your fitness. Only hard work, sustainable habits, done over a very long time. With that said here are a few solutions I personally like to use to help facilitate better fitness.


The crockpot is used probably 3-5 days per week on average.

What's in store for February?

For the month of February, we are going to introduce a new feature to our program - Plan B

Some days you just don’t feel like working out. Maybe you have been working out for several days in a row. You are sore, tired, and you need a rest day. What does the professional and elite athlete do when it’s time to rest?

During the middle of a workout, you are not getting faster, stronger, or more explosive. You are actually stressing the system and give the body a little bit of a b...
