Make it even better by…Popping resveratrol first!
If you dread working out, there’s good news from Canadian researchers: Their just-released study found that resveratrol, a compound found in red wine and some fruits and nuts, can boost your performance, making it easier to work out longer!
It has phytoestrogens, potent plant compounds that prevent muscles from tiring. What’s more, they also improve lung function, says lead researcher Jason Dyck, Ph.D.
When I first read this article it made me chuckle as I thought I couldn’t see myself drinking red wine before heading off to the GYM. Ha ha I am actually a “white wine girl”. The article did mention to try “Resveratrol Red Wine Complex Natural capsules”. Interesting.
Also smart: Add music!
Researchers found that runners who listened to upbeat rock or pop music exercised up to 15% longer—and felt great while doing it! That’s because fast-paced music increase your levels of energizing, mood-boosting endorphins.

I have my iPod with me at the GYM and do find it keeps me energized with my fabulous music. I spent an hour and a half at the GYM this morning and oh yes I have to say I do have my “feel good endorphins” fluttering around me. Have a super day everybody.
