But if fitness, not fighting, is more your thing, there’s a lot to learn from these incredible athletes. Their sport requires them to have the explosive strength to charge, the maximal strength to lift an opponent, and the cardiovascular endurance to stick through several rounds of intense competition!

So while you may not want to take a beating like contact athletes do, you can still take a page from their training logs. Here are 5 easy ways to integrate the training of contact sports into your workouts!

#1. Get Heavy With It

Hitting a heavy bag (aka a punching bag) is a fantastic workout. Not only will you get an abdominal, shoulder and triceps workout from punching, you’ll also work on your cardio as you duck, dodge, and move your feet. Make the most of your heavy bag use by constantly moving to keep your heart rate up.

How Snacking Can Promote Weight Loss...

...plus 12 healthy snacks that will help keep you thin

It’s mid day and your stomach is longer for a bag of chips while your mind is telling you to drink a glass of water and wait until dinner. Which is right? Do you listen to your gut or your brain?

When your tummy sounds like a rabid bear after a honey pot, you shouldn’t ignore it. Sure, we’ve been convinced that snacking leads to weight gain. However, if you indulge yourself with a healthy snack you can actually lose more weight and feel great in the process!

There’s zero need to feel guilty about snacking if you snack wisely. In truth, healthy snacks not only help manage hunger—they reduce the overpowering need to binge on fatty, sugary foods when you succumb to a snack attack. Think of it this way: you can enjoy a piece of fruit and a small carton of yogurt to curb hunger mid day or weaken to the first fast food drive thru on your way home from work. Which is better? The apple and yogurt by far!

Every Day is a Choice

If you ate an entire pizza and a gallon of ice cream yesterday, forget about it. Yesterday doesn't matter. You have a brand new opportunity to start over every day. Weight loss is more psychological than physical in many cases. Tell yourself that today is the day that you will make a commitment to eating healthy foods.

Scrap the fast food breakfast sandwich and have a bowl of cereal instead. Skip the soft drink and have a low calorie beverage instead. By making a commitment to eating healthy and cutting back, you are already a step ahead in your weight loss efforts.

Easy Ways To Feel Fuller For Longer

Do you find that even after a hearty breakfast you still feel hungry? Do you find yourself snacking on biscuits, crisps and chocolate throughout the day?

If you can’t resist the temptation to snack and find yourself piling on the pounds, here are some pointers to follow to feel more alert, be healthier and help with weight loss:

1.       Drink up!

Many people complain of feeling hungry when in actual fact, they are thirsty. The brain processes hunger and thirst in the same way, so a sensation of hunger could actually just mean that you haven’t had enough to drink. Regular sips of water and a small glass of water before each meal will make you feel fuller so will prevent you from overeating.

2.       Eat more protein rich foods

Many people experience the afternoon slump where you feel extremely tired and lethargic, this is usually caused through a high-carbohydrate diet which provides you with high energy but this is short lived as your sugar levels promptly dip making you feel tired.  By including more protein in your lunch, such as chicken and fish, the body will convert carbohydrates to sugar more slowly, leaving you feeling fuller and more energetic for longer.
