Halloween is a fun and exciting holiday for kids and adults alike.
One of the best parts of Halloween is, of course, the candy!!
However, not all candy is created equal. Some types of candy are definitely better than others.
Here are the 5 best and 5 worst Halloween candies, according to my highly scientific and completely objective poll:
*This was not a highly scientific and completely objective poll. These are just the 5 best and 5 worst Halloween candies, according to me.
The ranking also has nothing to do with calorie counts or health. This is because part of a healthy relationship and an overall well-rounded fitness plan is enjoying things you like!
If you like candy, eat it!
Practice moderation, of course.
But three or four of your favorite pieces of candy will help you enjoy the holiday with family and friends, and then get back to the plan. If you look at the big picture, a few pieces of candy on one single day CAN fit into your overall plan of health and fitness.
Have a great day –

The notion that you can out-train a bad diet is a popular one.
After all, if you are putting in the hard work at the gym, you should be able to enjoy the occasional cheat meal, right?
Well – the answer to the question of “Can You Out-Train A Bad Diet?” is probably no.
One of the biggest reasons is because it is extremely difficult to “burn off” extra calories consumed!
Here’s a recent example from last weekend:

Then, on Saturday morning, I went out and rucked / ran for two hours, covering about 10 miles with around 15 or 20 pounds in my backpack.
Total calories burned: 1331
It took me about 15 minutes to eat that dinner, and while I enjoyed it, it took me almost TWO HOURS of sustained, decent intensity cardio to burn it off!!
You can’t out-train a bad diet unless you’re practising like this every day.
When I was in NFL training camp, we had to practice five to six hours every day in the heat and humidity of Wisconsin summers – yes, in that situation, I ate as much as possible and I was still losing weight.
But for 99% of the population who have a regular daily activity, out-training a bad diet just isn’t going to cut it.
The bottom line is, if you actually want to see results from your fitness journey, you need to start paying attention to your diet.

One of the main complaints from kettlebell users is back pain.
While there are many potential causes, one of the most frequent is incorrect form – specifically, swinging the kettlebell too low to the ground.
To fix this, keep the kettlebell close to your body as it swings back. The movement is similar to hike passing a football. Another excellent tip is to imagine throwing the KB through your stomach, and then getting the hips out of the way at the last minute.
We also have a “kettlebell quick start” personal training package at FVT that may interest you if you found this tip helpful – reply to this message with the word “KETTLEBELL” to learn more.
