"When you think cardio, what comes to mind, Richard Simmons? Okay. Well, that's a throwback. But I think more like biking running cardio bunnies. Possibly. I mean. I know for me, I think about that because used to be one of those cardio bunnies. Just too afraid to try anything else in the gym. And that was mainly because I didn't really know what else to do in the gym. But here's the thing though, cardio is important. Ho important is it can't is really important. You know, it just helps with everything and helps build stronger hearts. It helps us burn fat and calories in a shorter amount of time. And that is why today's episode is all about cardio and why cardio is important for men. Women beginners more experienced gym goers and everyone in between. So I'm Candice, and I'm Andrew and this is the Libyan healthy podcasts. All about that cardio about that cardio. Bonnie. I Bala back cardio back party of funny. We're all about that Cardi about that cardio. We're buddies. Oh, yes. We'd sound. That's awesome. I do. I do have to ask you a question though, Kansas. Yes, What's a cardio bunny? What are we just think about okay, so cardio bunny is are those girls that just hang out on the treadmills or stair climbers and their grade? Yeah. Too. Timid little bunnies. I used to be one. Okay. Well, I just took a leap and decided to sing about without knowing what that is about. But okay, that's not bad. All right. Well, this show is all about cardio. So for that. We're going to be bringing back two guests. The first is elephant is personal training director Tristan alleman. And we also have dietitian Debbie with us here to help us understand the benefits of adding that cardio to your workout routine. So welcome back to the show guys. Thank you for having us here. Good to be back. So Tristan let's start with you the basic question why is cardio so important. Well, you know, of course, that all depends on your goal cardio is important for mainly two things. Probably the most obvious thing is to keep your heart, healthy, your heart and your lungs. You know, your heart's pretty much the most important muscle in your body. Right. So you gotta keep your heart strong. Also, you know to burn extra calories cardio has great benefit. You know, if you're trying to lose body fat. But another thing too is the thing that I experienced from cardio because I like to do cardio in the morning. It gets the oxygen flowing through your body early in the day or even in the middle of your day. Just so, you know, by the time to get you get to work or do what you do throughout the day. Your brain's kind of activated. You've got blood flowing through your body the oxygen going around your body and you like the early morning cardio. I really do. Oh my gosh. I cannot agree with that. I'll do the lunch thing. And maybe that helps me get past that afternoon stage totally so after work, and I know I drag myself to the gym, and I'm always so exhausted. But it makes sense because after work you now, I feel super energized yen. You gotta do. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. Totally. So what kind of what what are some exercise that constitute cardio accounts is cardio? You know, anything that really gets your heart rate up. I think that could be considered cardio. Of course, like what most people think of is like the treadmill or the stairmaster the bikes elliptical you could do cardio when a group class. You know, the Zuma classes are great. It gets your heart rate up. You can even do hit training where you're doing strength training cardio combined. Really anything that gets your heart rate up would probably be considered cardio. So if I'm running and instead of just a really low level jog, I'm doing some hills. Well that be cardio for me that would be cardio Exxon. Okay. Just getting your heart rate up essentially, kind of anything that's going to do that. Exactly. What? How does it? You kind of mentioned the heart being such an important muscle of the money. What is it about cardio that affects the heart? Well, it makes your heart stronger. Right. So if you're if you're doing cardio and in you're not in good condition. Pretty much your heart has to pump a little bit harder to get the blood flowing throughout your body. Because it's not conditioned as you continue to push your body and get your get your heart. Use of strenuous exercise. Just like any other muscle. It's going to get stronger. So your heart's gonna be, you know, you're stroke volume in your heart, which is pretty much what controls how much blood is being pushed out per pump. Right. As you strengthen your heart, your stroke volume increases. Right. So your heart doesn't have to work as hard to push the amount of blood throughout your body. Okay. So on cardia center days, Debbie are there like certain foods that are better to eat on a cardio focus days. It makes more sense to actually just shift some of your calories to the hours surrounding your workout. Because you really wanna feel it rather than thinking about more volume Amore energy on one day versus another. I mean, you could certainly go about that. But actually, if you want to have the best cardio workout. You can you wanna top off your glycogen stores support that performance protect your muscles by getting. Adequate fuel pre and post. So how do you do that? Exactly. I mean, are there certain types of food that are better than others? Sure, I would stay away from anything really highly fatty and fibrous so things like, you know, really deep fried food, bacon cheese or high fiber food. Just the pre. Kim before maybe maybe you get a little bit of sodium boost. But that's, but you know, brand and the shelves of pumpkin seeds. They're not going to help their Tristesse in the high fiber category. But they're not going to help you for that workout would like an apple beforehand be okay. Or is that so you wanna look for non apples fine. You want to look for the the wholesome foods that you're going to choose through. But something that you can digest has to do with the timing. So for me, I don't really like to exercise with a full belly. So if I'm going to have a meal, and I have a substantial meal six eight hundred calories. It's going to be like three hours for me. If you're a Grazer and you're like, oh, well ahead a bowl of cereal an hour ago. Well, then you need eat something again before you go off and do your sixty minutes of your class or what what about like, a protein drinks are those necessary for pre or post cardio workouts. Or is that kind of more reserved for strength training days. You know protein in general is helpful. During your longer kind of aerobic work. That's that's over an hour. You're doing the high intensity interval training as far as supplementing with protein the there's somewhat of a benefit to either the protein shakes or putting a protein powder into a fluid because the liquid form it's just it's easier to digest than chewing through, you know, chicken meat or or what have you? It's just easier on your digestion. But still you don't need your body's not going to utilize more than a bulk of twenty to thirty grams of protein at that sitting in in terms of so you, you know, the concept of oh, I need more protein. Let me power down this, you know, sixteen ounce steak. No, no, right. You know, the four ounces is going to top you off like, that's it Tristan. What's your take on it? I mean, are you more of a like protein drink fan, or do you tend to just have like a glass of milk or something? Yeah. Totally I have used protein shakes in the past. I try to get all my protein through nutrition for the most part I usually use protein shakes for convenience. But you just have to be careful. There's so many supplement companies out there, you gotta make sure you're you have a high quality protein because a lot of this up liament companies have a lot of fillers that really aren't that great for you. So I'd like to use protein shakes for convenience. Do you find that it's best before or after your your workouts? Actually either. I I'm kind of like Debbie in the sense that I don't like to work out on a on a full stomach. So I usually would do it after just for for that. But the main thing is that you have an adequate amount of protein by the end of the day timing is very important for protein, but not as important as just eating the right amount. You know throughout the day for sure, you know, and ready to drink like sealed, a protein drink is easier to transport in gym bag like I'll get it in the freezer and let it thought out or something like that. If I want cold, it's just a little bit easier. Like you said timewise for convenience than going. Okay. We'll wears my ice packs to keep my heart. Buttocks gold. Right. You know, when I got appeal the shells and soon on everyone puts a chicken breast in their gym that the fortune tonight. Yeah. Okay. That's just me.

"tristan alleman" Discussed on Living Healthy Podcast

"Yeah. Hey, everyone. Welcome back to the living healthy podcast, presented by LA, fitness. I'm Andrew, and I'm Candice. Did you guys myth that? We hope you miss us. We've only been gone for about six weeks. Maybe two months, but we are back with season two were excited for the season. Got a lot of really good content lined up to reveal later on. So we're looking forward to that. But this episode in particular is about resolutions of the new year array. Are you ready for that? Are you ready? Are you still doing it? I don't know you wrote to. Have you stuck to your New Year's resolution? Yeah. We wanna know our guest for this episode is going to be personal training director Tristan alleman were also going to be revealing our resolutions at the end of the episode. You do you want to give a sneak peek of what yours is not too exciting? I don't know. Wow. Wait, a dump it. All right. We'll stay tuned. All the way through the episode for that. We also are going to be doing two new segments. Both are featuring producer, Matt. I don't know how that happened. How did you swing that? Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. That's that's gonna go. One of them's called Matt on the street where we sent him out to talk to people on the street and the other is the history lesson. You never knew you wanted. This one's on resolutions and a tower going to kick off this episode. So and I say this with trepidation take it away met. So the earliest evidence of any New Year's resolution we can find dates back about four thousand plus years ago in originates in the form of a Babylonian holiday. Known as a keep do. I'm not sure if I'm pronouncing that correctly, but it's more fun to say that than any other way a practice, and this is where the people of Babylon attempted to atone for their past mistakes by making promises to their gods to do. So this typically came in the form of promising to return what they'd borrowed from another or paying back debt something to that effect shortly. After that roams Julius Caesar shreve for the name established January first as the beginning of the new year that brought with it. Few more traditions Romans around forty six found themselves making sacrifices to the deity Janice to gain better fortune through the coming year that kind of takes us back from the first evidence of any sort of New Year's resolution to the common era. So at the turn of the commoner, Sarah, we see the tradition of the New Year's resolution continuing any volving versed with oh same Romans. So in the fourth century, the New Year's resolution is Christianised through the Roman empire's adoption of. Christianity and changing things a little bit. So to keep with this new belief system instead of sacrificing to one of the many Roman gods, people stopped the practice of living sacrifice all together and resolve to praying and fasting to gain the favor of the single Christian God through the new year in this pretty much is how it goes until about the twelfth century. We see the emergence of more secularized. Lest religious form of the New Year's resolution this came about in medieval euro is known as the peacock vow which took place directly after the Christmas season and saw nights ceremoniously renewing their vows to chivalry which was their nights code over a cooked or uncooked peacock, and they would alternate -ly cook. And feast on that peacock later finally the practice of committing to New Year's resolutions. It lands in the United States so in colonial America. It's the Puritans who take the mantle they did this by outright, abandoning the usual partying that accompanied the celebration of. Of the new year. And instead of all that partying took that time to reflect on the past contemplate the present and physically right out commitments to the new year that revolved around their puritan belief in charity avoidance of sin for the future. This principle was later canonized or adopted into common religious practice by the founder of Methodism. John Wesley Wesley created a new church service that still practice to this day and many forms, and it's known as the covenant renewal or watch night service is where we're seeing pray and reflect before renewing their covenant with their God. Now, it's twenty nineteen practice of New Year's resolution making has become pretty much entirely secularized. It's not really a religious thing anymore unless you practice. One of the like, the watch night ceremonies are coming ever Newell ceremony and instead of being in service to if you gods or a single God or principal or philosophy vs resolutions, typically focus on self improvement and committing to that same. Himself throughout the new year. And so with that we have the history lesson. You never knew you wanted about New Year's resolutions back to you guys. Andrew injure. Oh what hazmat? Oh, oh, oh, it's done. Oh my God. Did he he's done? All right. Well, wow. That was I I remember something about a peacock. Right. I wasn't dreaming, right. There was something about a peacock. Okay. Well, okay. Were you listening? You wake up right before I woke up, and you're just now competent on me. Okay. Yeah. I wanna right now. But seriously that was cool. Thank you Matt for giving us that history lesson. And actually, we're going to be hearing more from that a little later on this episode. But for now, let's bring on our guest to talk resolutions. His name's tristen element. He's currently a personal training director, and he's been with L A fitness for about four years now. So he's seen a lot of people come through the door, and he seen which types of people actually make it out of that January crowd and stick with their routine. So first of all welcome to the show tristen. Thanks for thanks for having me here. So first question are you personally making any resolutions this near that's a great question. And what I did is, you know, everyone slacks off no matter if you're in the industry, you're not, you know, we all have times where we're more on our fitness routine and times where we slack off a little bit. So I wouldn't call it a resolution at maybe just say, I'm recommitting to my fitness plan. Right. That's an interesting. I think we're going to talk about that a little bit later, but that's an interesting take on that. But I wanna know because you see people come. Through the door. Like, I said, what are some of the common mistakes you see people making the gym that don't let them stick to the resolution. One thing. I feel like people struggle with is when whenever he joined the gym there's a couple of things, right. If you're not used to having a good fitness plan or you're not used to working out in the gym one. It could be intimidating right? So most people walk in and especially in January, it's super super-busy in the gyms. Right. A lot of people are intimidated. And if you don't know how to use the equipment or the machines, or if you don't know what to do. I see a lot of people like that who are super excited about their goals. Not able to continue just because the gym is an uncomfortable place for them to go. Right. So you know, if you don't know what to do or you feel nervous about it. I definitely recommend, you know, having someone who who knows what to do whether that'd be a trainer a friend a coach if you join a group class with friends just something that makes you feel comfortable, right? Okay. Yeah. That kind of comedy just jump into and say that for. That aren't comfortable like working out with friends or you don't feel like you want to approach the personal training area yet because you're still kind of new and nervous. You could go onto our blog, blog dot LA, fitness dot com. There's a whole bunch of articles on there for beginners specifically like at the new year we have articles for those that are new joining the gym, and they don't know where to begin we break down easy exercises.
