Are you considered obese?

women are considered obese when they have a body fat of 32%, and men when their body fat is at 25%. Obesity puts you at an increased risk for disease through low grade inflammation.⠀

Exercise may help fight obesity by tipping the energy balance in an individuals favor as well as reducing circulating cytokines associated with development of atherosclerosis, diabetes, and inflammation. Exercise also reduces the accumulation of visceral fat storage, which is the primary cause of adipokine dysfunction.⠀

Got Genetics?

We’ve all heard people say “oh it’s genetics” But how much does genetics actually affect us? 25-40% of what happens to us is not in our control. What we can control is our behavior and our environment. Genetics determines our potential capabilities as well as what we are at risk to developing or more susceptible to. It also influences the way our physiology adapts to exercise and our physiological occurrences. ⠀

However, by no means can we use genetics as an excuse for diabetes when all you eat is processed sugar.⠀

The Basics of Exercise Order

Do you find yourself slapping together different exercises and hoping it works out or even thinking it gave you the best workout ever? I know i’ve been there. Believe it or not there’s a science to exercise order and sadly enough I have yet to see any of the famous fitspos with 1M+ following use correct order.⠀

Exercise order depends on recruitment goals and is a direct reflection of the energy system-tension relationship. ⠀

Exercise your major muscles (primary) groups using your compound lifts first, move into unilateral exercises (secondary), and end with exercises that target your stabilizers (ancillary). You need your stabilizers for your compound lifts so avoid fatiguing them first. ⠀

If you feel like you need help in every which way, I’ve got you! DM me or Email LetlerFit@gmail.com let me help you exercise correctly and effectively.⠀

If you like creating your own workouts, but are curious to see how they can be tweaked or improved, I help with that as well!⠀

Obesity Beyond “Looks”

Obesity leads to ⠀
-Systemic inflammation⠀
-Insulin Resistance⠀
-Disturbances in the secretion and function of adipokines⠀

Not only does it create the aforementioned issues, but it puts you at an increased risk of developing type 2 diabetes (when your body struggles to utilize glucose and produce insulin, and/or it’s inability to act in response to insulin production). Did you know that 90% of all diabetes cases are type 2? Did you also know that this is potentially avoidable with lifestyle modifications?⠀

Risk factors for developing diabetes include:⠀
-Certain Medication⠀
-Race⠀
-Hypertension⠀
-Stress⠀
-Age⠀
-Pregnancy⠀
-Family history (genetics) ⠀
-High Cholesterol⠀

For every 500 kcal of energy expenditure per week that comes from exercise, the risk for type 2 diabetes is reduced by 6%.⠀

Exercise also helps increase ones insulin sensitivity by improving carbohydrate metabolism and glucose tolerance from enhanced cellular uptake.

I challenge you to stop looking at obesity as someone who is “fat” and needs to lose weight to be “skinny” because that’s NOT the issue.   The issue is HEALTH.⠀
