Recovery Week & Active Re...

Jan 4, 2012 by

A few weeks ago I’ve written a post called ” How To Train For Best Results “, and as I already mentioned to get the best results we need to use periodization, meaning a period of high intensity training should always be followed by a period of low intensity training or full recovery. I usually train for 6 weeks, and then I take one full week for active recovery. In this article I would like to share with you how I spend my week of active rest.

Dark Cherrie Protein Bars Reci...

Jan 2, 2012 by

I have another amazing recipe I came up with for healthy protein bars at home. I made these a few days ago and was going to post it, but then I decided to wait until the first day of the 2012, to start this year out with a good recipe.
I completely stopped buying protein bars from stores except of course Larabars, which seems the only bars I could find without any artificial ingredients or preservatives or processed sugar. But still, even with those bars, who knows how long they have been laying in the store, weeks probably, and I love my food fresh.

Dec 29, 2011 by

Today’s workout is a follow up to yesterday’s ” Heartbeat Up Workout “. This routine focuses on upper body and lot’s of abs. This workout was an interval training and it went by super fast even though it wasn’t the shortest routine, but I really enjoyed it and I hope you will as well.

Light & Healthy Gourmet S...

Dec 27, 2011 by

I have a really good and healthy recipe for you, it’s super easy ( as always ) to make and only has a few ingredients. This would be a perfect gourmet salad on the go. I didn’t add any meat on it but if you like you can add lean chicken breast. But even without it, it has plenty of protein as well as good fat.

Merry Christmas!

Dec 25, 2011 by

I just wanted to make a small post and wish everyone a Merry Christmas. In Russia we don’t celebrate Christmas on the 25th because our Christmas is on January 7th.

I think this is the first time where I am actually enjoying the holiday times, all the music and good mood that is going around. But for me it’s also the time which is close to New Year, and New Year is the most important holiday that we celebrate in Russia – makes me miss home a lot. Florida is definitely not very Christmasy like because we don’t’ have snow or cold in that matter.

Protein Energy Cookies Recipe

Dec 23, 2011 by

It seems that no matter where I go ( unless it’s a health food store ), I can’t find great energy bars that have no preservatives and have a lot of protein. So far my favorite health bars are Larabars ( they are preservative free but they don’t as much protein as I like ), and I also love Clif Kid bars ( these give you great energy, but they are loaded with sugar and also don’t have much protein ). So I decided to make my own, this way I know all of the ingredients are good for me, they are preservative free, have no added sugar and are loaded with protein, not to mention taste great.

Love On Top Workout

Dec 22, 2011 by

Today’s workout was an upper body routine and it was a follow up to yesterday’s ” It Girl Booty Workout “. I really had to pull it together today, because half way though the workout I just wanted to complain and quit, but then all I kept thinking about was how hot I want to look and greet the New Year’s day, and that kept me going through the full routine. I will be sharing my scores at the end of the post.
