PROS and CONS of Working Out in a Home Gym

PROS and CONS of Working Out in a Home Gym. It's great having a home gym, but there are a few pros and cons to it. For one thing, working out at home requires a little more discipline. It's easy to tell yourself, "The gym will be there later, I can train whenever I want" and of course, sometimes this can enable procrastination. Sometimes the limitations of a schedule can give you that kick in the behind that you need to get in the gym, and having a home gym can lull you into "training later". An advantage to training at home is, that you're NOT limited by schedules and timing associated with gym hours, commuting and so forth. So this gives you the freedom to workout whenever you wish which can really help when your schedule is all over the place. It's also great when you train at home to not be driven by ego as much as by what your body is telling you in any given day. And because you don't have to impress the guy on the bench beside you, you may be more prone to making better decisions when it comes to choosing your rep ranges and exercises.

*🔷More Muscle, No STANK-A** Keto Breath. Sounds like a Win to me lol*

So Yeah - This Video is a bit controversial, So here goes...

*THE #1 REASON I DON'T LIKE THE KETO DIET!*

TOO Many negative side effects (which I've laid out) and the ONLY thing that matters when losing fat is being in a caloric deficit.

Meanwhile - INSULIN is the most anabolic hormone in your body (anabolic = preserving muscle, + increased performance)

Why would you shut down the most anabolic hormone in your body, when you are already in a potential catabolic state of being in a caloric deficit?!

We know for a fact the most important factor to losing body fat is being in a caloric deficit. (aka it doesn't matter WHAT You eat, its HOW MUCH You Eat)

That is why during this VLOG starting at 07:46 I'm eating Reeses Puffs, Epic Vegan Cupcakes, and A Giant White Rice Poke Bowl.

This will allow me to burn the SAME amount of fat as a Keto Diet with the same amount of calories, WHILE making way more muscle gains and not dealing with nasty Keto Breath lol...

More muscle, no stank a** Breath. Sounds Like a Win to me!

Enjoy the vid Youtube Fam! I'm so excited to travel to a new and exciting place next week - and share my experience with you guys.

Ketogenic Diet vs. Low Carb Diet: Thomas DeLauer- Ketosis to Help Your Business? http://www.ThomasDeLauer.com/life-fitness-coaching

-Ketosis is when your body turns to fat rather than carbohydrates for energy. Ketosis can occur during fasting, when you reduce the amount of carbs or calories in your diet, during pregnancy or after exercising for a long period of time. Many diets use ketosis as the means of burning fat while maintaining muscle - examples include the Atkins diet and other low-carb diets. This strategy can also lead to decreased hunger. How long does it take to kick your body into fat burning, ketosis mode? Roughly 3-4 days of consuming less than 50 carbs per day, the equivalent of 2 bananas. Benefits include weight loss, seizure prevention, cardiovascular health and type-2 diabetes help, to name a few. How does it Work? When glucose is in short supply, your liver will break down fats into ketones, which are then used throughout your body for energy. Muscles and other tissues in your body use ketones rather than glucose for energy metabolism. In a healthy person, the production of ketones for energy is the body’s natural response to starvation, so this happens when dieting, overnight and during fasting. Glucose or Ketones: Which is More Effective? Many brain diseases, such as epilepsy, are already being treated by the ketogenic diet. The mechanisms to why it helps the brain are still being studied, but there are some possible reasons that ketones seem to be a good energy source for the brain. One major Ketone, beta-hydroxybutyrate, or BHB, provides more energy per unit of oxygen than glucose, and thus may be even more efficient than glucose at providing energy to the brain. (3) -The ketogenic diet has also been found to increase the number of mitochondria in brain cells. In a 2004 study on rats, one group was fed a ketogenic diet while the other was fed a normal diet. A positive impact was found on the gene expression for mitochondrial enzymes in the hippocampus, the memory and learning center of the brain. (4) Ketosis and Body Water Composition: High fat and low carb diets are known to lead to fast weight loss. The fast weight loss is due to water weight being shed (5) -When you decrease carbs, you decrease water storage in the body. Who Can Benefit From Ketosis? If you are looking to shed some body fat, ketosis may be a good tool. This can go along with an exercise regimen as you maintain muscle while losing fat. Ketosis can also benefit those who need to boost brain power as energy may be utilized more effectively in the brain. *Be careful because those with diabetes can get too high of a level of ketones in their blood, which is very dangerous. This occurs due to the low levels of insulin in the blood, which will signal the body to produce excess ketones that will build up in the blood, making the blood pH too low. References: 1.

The ketogentic diet is the latest fad diet. In this video men's style, grooming, fitness and lifestyle expert, Aaron Marino of IAmAlphaM, AaronMarino, and Pete & Pedro says that the lifecycle of the fad diet is that it goes away and comes back with a cooler name. None of these diets are new; however, Alpha's going over the ketogenic diet.

How the Keto Diet Works The body, including your brain, needs glucose to function. The glucose comes from carbs. But wthout glucose, your body will use ketones instead of carbs. The ketogenic diet takes your body into the state of ketosis where your body burns fats for energy. The object of the diet is to force your body to get into and stay in a glycogen deprived state and maintain a mild state of ketosis. You find out if you're in ketosis by urinating on a keto-stick. Click the image below to see the percentage of macros for a regular diet, low carb, paleo, and keto diets:

The Up and Down Sides The keto diet has no starches. The upside is that fat falls off, and you can eat as much fat as you want. It's all about fat. Some claim that they think clearer and that cancer can't thrive and grow in the absence of glucose. The downside is the keto-flu when starting the diet. Another downside is low energy levels - your body needs carbohydrates. Without carbs, you have a zero chance of gaining muscle because you need glucose and glycogen.

Educate Yourself It's crazy how little people know about what they're consuming and why their body needs certain things. People need to educate themselves about what is important for your body. Alpha took nutrition in college, and it changed his world. He attributes his health to understanding food. 90% of what your body looks like is what you eat!
