The Power of a Push Up

The Power of a Push Up

What do you do when your bootcamp coach says "time for pushups?" I'm willing to bet you groan, shoot a dirty look or, at a minimum roll your eyes. Admit it - you know its true!

Pushups aren't the easiest thing in the world to do. But they are worth every bit of effort you put into them. Pushups work SO many muscle groups. Primarily, they work your deltoids (shoulders), triceps (back of the upper arm) and pectorals (chest).

LET'S GET DRESSED.

One simple change you can make to drastically improve your health is to remove any and all processed sauces, dips and dressings from your diet.  Store-bought dressings in particular are often lacking in nutrients and fiber, and are high in unpronounceable preservatives, salt, sugar and unnecessary, unhealthy fats (and can taste artificial). 

Try this super easy and quick formula for making your own amazing salad dressings, dips and sauces.  Have fun, play with the ingredients.  The possibilities are endless!
