6 DC Health Experts Share How to Stay Healthy During the Holidays
Errick is featured in Capitol File magazine this month!
“Eat the things you really want and ignore the rest. That's right. If you really love pumpkin pie, then eat pumpkin pie, but don't have the biscuits, or the yams, or the dessert. My mom used to say this to me all the time, ‘You can have anything you want, but you can't have everything you want. Make smart choices.’ I apply this sage advice to diet.”
One of Errick's step workouts was just published in the October issue of Shape Magazine!
From the article... "Steps are one of the most effective conditioning tools out there," says Errick McAdams, a personal trainer in Washington, DC, known for his killer staircase workouts. "A set of stairs has a 50 to 75 percent slope... The steep grade will skyrocket your fat melt - running up stairs burns up to an off-the-charts 16 calories per minute - and carve your butt, legs and more as you climb."
DC TRAINERS TELLS US EXACTLY WHAT TO EAT BEFORE AND AFTER A WORKOUT
By Rahkee Bhatt
Before: Whole wheat bagels and bananas are excellent sources of energy for long runs. If you are running outside in hot weather, you may find that you have to substitute water with a sports drink to properly rehydrate. If you're pumping iron in the gym or taking a bootcamp class, a spoonful of peanut butter and a small apple is a great choice. One serving of low fat cottage cheese and fruit (I prefer blueberries) is also an excellent choice.
After: Within 30 minutes of completing a workout, [have] protein and carbs. One of my favorites is a broccoli omelet with a small sweet potato or half an avocado with hot sauce and 2 scrambled eggs.
6 DC Health Pros on How to Stick to Your Resolutions in 2016
By Francesca Colin
“Make your exercise resolutions realistic. Don't say, ‘I'm going to go to the gym everyday.’ Instead say, ‘I am going to get at least 30 minutes of physical activity in five-to-six times a week.’ That can be as simple as a 30-minute walk. Any active thing you do that you don't normally do is exercise. If you get out of your chair right now and walk up a fight of stairs 10 times, that’s exercise. Exercise is any activity outside the scope of your normal day.” -- Errick McAdams
