A glass OJ is missing the pulp, skin, and full fiber content of a orange. Skip the glass and go with the whole piece of fruit to reap the benefits of this healthy snack

One 8oz glass of OJ has close to 2.5 times the sugar and just one-third the fiber of a typical piece of fruit. The stats from caloriecounter.com: the small juice contains 112 calories, 0.1g fiber, and 20.8g sugar, while the fruit has 45 calories, 2.3g fiber, and 9g sugar

Eat your fruit, don’t drink it

Try it!!

4 Key Fitness Moves

Do you want the most out of your fitness routine? Include these 4 great compound movements:

1. Squats
2. Deadlifts
3. Bench Press
4. Pull Ups

The magic in these exercises comes from the fact that they are all compound movements, meaning they each work muscles at multiple joints. For example, performing squats will tax the glutes, hamstrings, quads, and core musculature.

The barbell (or weighted) version of these movements will illicit the most benefit due the amount of load that you could place on the body. However, these 4 movements can be performed without any external weight/ load and would prove to be just as beneficial for someone who is starting out.

There are many variations of these exercises ranging from beginner to Olympic style lifts. Which ones have you tried? If you are new to exercise please consult a Fitness Professional for proper technique and programming considerations.

Please share the type of experience you have had with the Big 4 or respond with any general questions.

If you are new to exercise or even a seasoned lifter then you probably know what it’s like to be sore after a workout. Instead of popping an otc (over the counter) anti-inflammatory,
try a glass of tart cherry juice.

Tart cherries are loaded with important nutrients such as antioxidants and anti-inflammatory agents. It’s only 137 calories per 1-cup serving, and it is beneficial for cancer prevention and heart health.
