For many of us who fell in love with weight lifting, crossfit, bodybuilding and general fitness we want to be able to continue to do what we love for years to come. When we are young recovering from injury is much easier, and it’s also much harder to get injured. However years of training take a toll on our body and it becomes harder to recover, easier to get injured and we develop more muscle imbalances and tightness. Which is why it’s important to know how to train to reduce the risk of injury, and I wanted to cover some ways to reduce the risk of injury.

Bacon Wrapped Avocado with a Duck Egg Inside

 For my first AI Sports Nutrition blog post I wanted to start with a recipe to test things out because I believe success in the gym starts with proper nutrition.  Those of you who are already familiar with me know I love breakfast foods,  especially eggs.  Today’s recipe utilizes a duck egg that is soft boiled and combined with an avocado and bacon.  Simple to make, this treat contains less than 400 calories and is filled with healthy fats that our bodies require.  This satisfying combination is delicious and can be served as a stand-alone meal or as part of a larger meal.  Duck eggs are a delicious alternative to chicken eggs, the main difference being that the duck eggs are a little larger but the taste is almost identical. Ensure that your avocado is firm but ripe.

My father in law started working on losing weight. He cleaned up his diet which resulted in reduction in the number of calories he was consuming on a daily basis and he successfully lost some weight. However he then came to a plateau unable to lose more weight with the initial diet changes that he made. Therefore he had to lower his daily calories more, which produced some weight loss, but inevitably he reached a plateau again. He was not willing to sacrifice any more of his daily calories and became frustrated.  He felt that weight loss is just not going to happen and he might as well just go back to eating like he did before. This is something that many people may be able to relate to, the frustration of not being able to lose weight even after lowering calories below maintenance levels. Sometimes the key to this problem can be found in insulin resistance.

I’ve myself experienced many times a poor performance in the gym because I was not focused on what I was doing. Always wanting to improve my athletic performance I wanted to look further into improving my athletic performance with the right mindset.
