Carly, should I be doing cardio whilst I'm bulking? I get bored so easily of power walking all the time. Thank you!
In my opinion I think its good to do some cardio work all year, as it helps maintain fat levels, helps with body conditioning and also can actually help with muscle growth. Mix it up, there are so many cardio machines out there and they will all benefit different bodyparts...try interval training on the stepper or rowing, the trick is to keep your body guessing!
My imagination is poor so when it comes to making my meals taste good I really struggle. What can I do?
There are so many spices,herbs and vinegars.. I marinate alot of my food, be adventurous with your flavours, healthy eating doesn’t have to be boring!
I find working my abs out really boring, sit-ups after sit-ups. Have you got any suggestions to make my abs workouts more interesting and productive?
The plank is one of the best core exercises! If you are weight training, you will be working your core all the time, so incorporate the plank, bar twists and the suction technique after a workout 1-2 times a week!
