Empower Your Purpose – Flesh Tamers Fitness

I’ve made a few updates to the motivational and exercise videos for the Flesh Tamers Fitness App. The 6-week Taming the Flesh challenge is ready for everyone to use and start losing weight and building lean muscle mass while building our Spiritual gift of Self-Control.

And if you have set a goal to conquer your fear of running, the new 5K to Half-Marathon training program is being built and the first 9 weeks are ready for you to begin preparing for those fall runs you are singing up for.

Commit to try the app for 1 month and I guarantee you will see results that will convince you to finish out the final 2 weeks of the Challenge and beyond. I’ll be adding new programs regularly to help you achieve your next level goals beyond the base program.

What are you waiting for?

Should I Do Cardio or Weight Training First Each Day?

It all depends on your fitness goals. In a nutshell: If the primary goal is to increase aerobic endurance or lose weight, then you should perform cardiovascular exercise first. If the primary goal is to increase muscular strength, then you should perform strength training first.

There are no hard and fast rules as to which method is more successful. For complete and total health, you need to add both aerobic and anaerobic exercises to your workout routine.

The main reason to do one before the other is your time and energy reserved for the next exercise. If you do cardio first and don’t have enough time to do your weight training, then you will miss out on the benefits of resistance training and the opposite is also true.

I will generally do a short 10 minute cardio warm-up each Monday, Wednesday and Friday before doing weight training. And on Tuesday, Thursday and on the weekend I’ll do a long cardio workout and a short 10 minute muscle group focus with weights.

Monday Motivation

Did you know that your body is a resource God gave you. Just like anything else you have, you need to use that resource wisely for the purpose it was created for and return it with interest.

You have to maintain it the right way, you have to strengthen it and you have to use it for the intended purpose so you don’t break it. Even though we may not all have the same physical abilities, we all have a responsibility to be good stewards of what we were given.

Even as we get older, we can still be healthy and fit with energy and wisdom to advance the Gospel. But, we can’t do that if we don’t put in some effort to maintain this resource.

What are you doing today to be a good steward of the physical body God has given you?
