Today on LivingFuelTV we revisit one of our most popular series, SuperFit Without The Gym with natural fitness expert John Peterson. The series presented the amazing benefits using your own body as your gym and discussed the powerful 7 Tiger Moves. Today, John demonstrates three advanced-level Tiger Moves—the Bridge, the Tiger Stretch Push-up and the Tiger Squat. While these challenging exercises are not necessarily for beginners, be encouraged that you, too, can get here! And you don’t want to miss the bonus footage and the end of the episode!
Stay tuned next week when we’ll demonstrate the 7 Tiger Moves that can be done by everyone at any level of fitness. Start slow, be safe and be strong!

Do you avoid exercise (perhaps sliding on your New Years fitness resolution), thinking that you need to spend hours in the gym or on the treadmill to gain significant fitness results? This is not the case! As with many things in life, exercise is more about the quality, not the quantity of your efforts. It’s often what we do the 23 hours away from our workouts that can most determine our results.
Today, on LivingFuelTV, we sit down with elite strength and conditioning coach Andy O’Brien. Join us as we discuss how a lean body, a low resting heart rate, and ample energy thoughout the day are results of your body adapting metabolically and hormonally to the physical stress you place on it during your workouts, along with what you do with the other 23 hours. What does this mean to you? You can maximize these adaptations with less time exercising by applying what you’ll learn from today’s episode.

Before we look at the Super Health 7 exercise system, here’s why strength building is so crucial. First of all, without resistance exercises, studies tell us that between the ages of 20 and 30 we begin to lose muscle, and this continues with aging. Loss of muscle slows our body metabolism, leading to fewer calories burned naturally by the body.
Keep in mind that one pound of muscle is thought to burn about 35 calories a day! So, typically, as we age, we lose muscle and gain fat simultaneously, often without noticing it. We may eat the same number of calories and just keep adding the pounds, because of the change in our body composition and progressive loss of digestive efficiency.
