Total Gym Review
For a quite a few people, when they hear the name Total Gym they will immediately picture Chuck Norris working out on one. This isn’t a surprise seeing how Chuck Norris has a spokesmen for the product for a number of years now and has been appearing in infomercials for them.
However unlike many other celebrity endorsements where the celebrity hasn’t even touched a product until they were paid to market it, Chuck has been using Total Gym as his home gym solution for over 30 years now.
This is because Total Gym home gym systems provides a complete workout which can target all the major muscle groups in body. You can do as much as 80 different exercises on them, including resistance training, cardio training and stretching workouts.
There are currently 3 different Total Gymhome gym models available with the most basic one being the Total Gym. It is made for the budget cautious and is a basic unit that is stripped down to the bare essentials.

Five Ways for Louisiana to Lose Fat - 2
Stop Smoking. When you consume nicotine on a regular basis, not only do you ruin your body’s ability to heal itself, but you actually increase another potent fat storage hormone. You see, nicotine is a stimulant and it’s great at increasing cortisol levels. Cortisol is a “fight-or-flight” stress hormone, and when it’s high, so is your blood sugar. High blood sugar leads to insulin resistance and eventually fat storage.
Go Outdoors On Foot. During Duck and Deer season, you’ll see tons of trucks around Baton Rouge carrying motorboats, fan boats, four-wheelers etc. Now obviously it’s not always easy to get to your favorite hunting or fishing spot on foot, but don’t make it a luxury cruise. You could actually go fishing in a Pirouge or Canoe. I’ve got a friend from Kinder who actually goes Wood Duck hunting on foot. He gets plenty of exercise and food - the way our ancestors did since the beginning of time.
Exercise With Intensity. Both the Baton Rouge and Zachary gyms that I train at, are filled with people who think that watching TV on a treadmill is exercise. They’ll sit there for hours walking their rear end off and wondering why they don’t lose any fat. I like to think of a treadmill as a “hamster wheel.” Heck, the Hamster gets to have a water bottle too. Intense resistance training and sprint intervals are the missing components of most people’s workouts. If you want to look like this hamster, just keep running on your “hamster wheel.”
