Luxor Protein

Today I am going to do a talk about protein and its benefits, and promote a product that we use at our gym. It is called Luxor Protein .

What is Luxor protein?

From their website they say  “Luxor Nutrition manufactures high-quality nutritional supplements that incorporate new technology and environmentally friendly practices that offer honest and fairly-priced nutraceuticals for everyone. We are sensitive to the look and quality of our supplements. We always provide the best possible value to our customer who care about quality supplements, and we want every dollar spent with us to be well spent. We also create and nurture a heathy, creative, respectful, and fun office and manufacturing environment, in which our employees are fairly compensated and encouraged to resect the customer and the quality of the product we produce.”

Luxor Nutrition Protein is an all natural product. There is no weird aftertaste that you may get from other protein powders, and is be combined with frozen berries to make a great smoothie.

What can protein do for you?

A Whey Protein Isolate can be absorbed by your muscles much faster after a workout, and help you rebuild your muscles as soon as possible. We definitely recommend protein after a workout for recovery.

Maki Performance is a retailer store for Luxor Protein.
Stop by and pick up this great protein, and start helping your muscles recover faster.

2. TRX 90 degree bicep flex (minor movement) 30 secs  for 3 sets
3. Single arm kettle bell pistols 10 – 15 reps for 3 rounds.

1. Kettle bell clean and press – 15 reps for 3 sets
2. Inverted kettle bell press – 6 reps for 3 sets

And then you can finish with some cardio, such as punching the bags, or running on an incline treadmill doing intervals.

Richmond B.C Bootcamp Maki Fit and Abs Class

So it’s almost Christmas time, and time for good eats and chocolates. At least that’s what I think of when Christmas comes.
Then its the New Years for 2011, and as usual everyone has a New Years goal. Well if you are like me and put on some extra pounds during Christmas, and now want to shed it, then come try out the Abs Class and Maki Fit Bootcamp. These classes are always different, and provide a great workout. You will be challenged and pushed, but you will have a good time.

PS. There is now a nutritions class which is quickly gaining in popularity. It happens every Friday. Phone 604-719-8655 to find out more if interested.

TRX Training

So we have started training more with the TRX band.

This is definitely a very incredible piece of equipment, yet it is so simple. Just a rugged piece of straps that can withhold a lot of weight.

The rest of the training is based on creativity, body weight, and angles.

We are able to do suspended push-ups, jumping leg lunges, reverse rows, ab workouts. There is a lot to do with the bands. Just simple stuff, that gets your muscles leaner and stronger.

Stay tuned for results in the next couple of months to half a year, but so far the TRX bands are recommended.
