5 Proven ways our personal trainers combat belly bloat

Our expert mobile trainers at BodyBack share their top tips to win the battle against belly bloat! 

 

  • Don’t eat too much at a time
    If you feel sluggish and uncomfortable after you eat, cut down on your portion sizes.

 

  • Rule out food allergies and intolerances
    Many of us are unknowingly sensitive, allergic or intolerant to certain foods. Chad, our head personal mobile trainer, says, “Lactose, gluten and wheat can all cause bloating.”

 

  • Avoid foods that give you gas
    The culprits? Cabbage, legumes like beans and lentils, and some wholegrains.

 

  • Cut down on your salt intake
    Too much sodium in your diet leads to water retention and bloating. Try seasoning with herbs and spices to curb your salt intake.

 

  • Eat enough fibre
    Not eating fibre causes constipation, which exacerbates bloating.

3 reasons why you should be lifting lighter weights

3 reasons why you should be lifting lighter weights

Our expert mobile trainers share why a lighter load can equal greater gains!

  • Effort, not load, increases muscle growth
    New studies show that lifting lighter weights until reaching muscular failure can increase muscle size and strength as much as lifting heavy weights can. 
  • Lighter weights allow for greater range of motion
    Lifting too heavy takes the weight through a shorter range of motion, resulting in poorer performance. 
  • The risk of injury decreases
    “Light weights means less chance of injury, which equals greater performance,” says Chad, BodyBack’s head personal trainer.

5 solutions from our mobile fitness trainers to reduce inflammation

5 solutions from our mobile fitness trainers to reduce inflammation

According to our expert personal trainers, you can’t see or feel inflammation (swelling), but it can slowly damage your health and body. Chad, our head mobile trainer, says, “Inflammation helps fight injury and infection, but it can happen when the immune system gets triggered, without an injury or infection to fight.” 

Since there’s nothing to heal, the immune system cells that normally protect us begin to destroy healthy arteries, organs and joints. Follow these top 5 tips to reduce inflammation from our expert trainers:

  1. Eat anti-inflammatory foods, like fruits and vegetables, and foods containing Omega-3 fatty acids.   
  2. Avoid inflammatory foods like red meat and foods containing trans fats, like margarine, corn oil, deep fried foods and processed foods.
  3. Make time to exercise 30-45 minutes of aerobic exercise and 10-25 minutes of resistance training, at least four to five times a week.
  4. Control blood sugar by avoiding simple carbohydrates like sugar, flour, bread, rice and pasta. 
  5. Reduce stress levels with meditation and yoga.
