What Makes 10 Rounds Boxing Workout So Unique?

 

The 10 Rounds boxing workout is one of the most unique workout programs Beachbody has ever created. Every jab, cross, hook, and uppercut has a reason to be in the workout! You will burn some serious calories and get shredded and lean. Joel freeman will put focus into every single punch, one after another. He will push you to stay light on your feet and bring you to your maximum intensity!

The cool part is it is non-impact! Meaning you won’t be hitting a punching bag or a sparring partner! You won’t be damaging your hands or feet. This is zero-impact boxing at its finest that starts on your feet and intensifies the more you activate your core and explodes through your hands, giving you deep muscle-burning like you’ve never experienced before in a home workout. Your body will get absolutely cut and ripped.

This boxing workout focuses on building three key skills to make your fat loss painless and fun, but at the same time as quickly as possible: Power, Speed, and Endurance!

Each workout within 10 Rounds is broken into 10, three-minute rounds and features some of the best music Beachbody has ever come up with. The music will literally drive your rhythm and give you the energy to pack power into every punch!

What I loved the most was the two 30 minute weight lifting workouts per week! One for upper body and one for lower body. These workouts focus on building up your strength and lean muscle! Every workout you do within 10 Rounds focuses on your core. Literally every workout, and that is one of the biggest secrets in 10 Rounds for those that want a flat stomach.

Home Made Elderberry Syrup Recipe – Potent Cold & Flu Natural Remedy

Home Made Elderberry Syrup Recipe – Potent Cold & Flu Natural Remedy

 

People have used elderberry for its health benefits for hundreds of years. Elderberry contains antioxidants, and many believe it can relieve colds, fight the flu, and boost the immune system.
What are elderberries?

Eating cooked elderberries may reduce the symptoms of colds and the flu.

Elderberries are the fruit of the Sambucus tree. The most common type is the Sambucus nigra.

The tree has clusters of small white or cream elderflowers and bunches of small blue or black elderberries.

Native Americans and European herbalists have long used elderberries for their supposed range of health benefits. These include boosting the immune system to help the body fight off colds, flu, and other respiratory infections.

 

 

Evidence-based health benefits of elderberries

The elderberry contains certain compounds and substances that might have a beneficial impact on health.

We take a look at the evidence behind one of the main reported health benefit of elderberries:

 

 

Fighting colds and flu

There is some evidence to support the claim that elderberry can help treat colds and flu, though the available studies are small.

systematic review from 2010 concluded that elderberries might have antioxidant and antiviral effects, though the authors state that more research is needed.

In one study, 60 people with flu-like symptoms took 15 ml of elderberry syrup four times a day. Their symptoms improved 4 days before the people who took a placebo.

double-blind, randomized control trial looked at whether elderberry extract could prevent people from experiencing cold-like symptoms after traveling on an airplane. People took lozenges containing 300 mg of elderberry extract and 150 mg of rice flour twice a day for 10 days before traveling. Researchers found that the capsules did not prevent the symptoms, but people who took elderberry had less severe symptoms that lasted for a shorter time.

Dr. Madeleine Mumcuoglu, of Hadassah-Hebrew University in Israel found that elderberry disarms the enzyme viruses use to penetrate healthy cells in the lining of the nose and throat. Taken before infection, it prevents infection. Taken after infection, it prevents spread of the virus through the respiratory tract. In a clinical trial, 20% of study subjects reported significant improvement within 24 hours, 70% by 48 hours, and 90% claimed complete cure in three days. In contrast, subjects receiving the placebo required 6 days to recover.

 

Elderberry Syrup: Easy Way to Get the Benefits

Elderberry syrup provides the concentrated immune-supporting benefits of black elderberries in a great-tasting way. My homemade recipe uses homemade elderberry concentrate with synergistic herbs like cinnamon and ginger, plus raw honey for an extra immune boost. If you can’t/don’t use honey, you can use as substitute maple syrup.

Several natural elderberry syrups are available at health stores or online, but usually for around $15 or more for 4-8 ounces. This recipe makes 16 ounces for a cost of under ten dollars and kids love the taste!

You can also fully customize this recipe based on your needs and flavour preferences.

That said, if dried elderberries aren’t available and you’re in a pinch, there are some great pre-made elderberry gummies and elderberry syrup that work just as well (just cost more). Also, if you happen to have fresh or frozen elderberries on hand, just use double the quantity listed in the recipe.

 

How to Make Elderberry Syrup to Avoid the Flu

A simple elderberry syrup recipe made with dried elderberries, honey and herbs for an immune boosting and delicious syrup. Can be used medicinally or on homemade pancakes or waffles.

Ingredients

 

Instructions

  • Pour the water into a medium saucepan and add the elderberries, ginger, cinnamon and cloves.
  • Bring to a boil and then cover and reduce to a simmer for about 45 minutes to 1 hour until the liquid has reduced by almost half.
  • Remove from heat and let cool until it is cool enough to be handled.
  • Mash the berries carefully using a spoon or other flat utensil.
  • Pour through a strainer into a glass jar or bowl.
  • Discard the elderberries and let the liquid cool to lukewarm.
  • When it is no longer hot, add the honey and stir well.
  • When the honey is well mixed into the elderberry mixture, pour the syrup into a  mason jar or glass bottle.
  • Ta-da! You just made homemade elderberry syrup! Store in the fridge and take daily for its immune boosting properties. 

 

 

More of a Visual Person?

Here is my one-minute tutorial video:

 

 

How long does elderberry syrup last in the fridge?

The short answer is that it really depends. I’ve found that placing the finished syrup in a mason canning jar while it is still warm creates an air-tight seal and allows it to last much longer in the fridge, up to several months. As a general rule, it lasts about two weeks in the fridge and I typically freeze whatever I won’t use during that time. You can also freeze small amounts in an ice-cube tray and defrost small amounts when needed.

 

 

How much to take?

This is really a question for an herbalist or naturopath, but I personally take 1 teaspoon a day as an adult and give half of this to my kids. During illness, I double this amount.

Vegan Meal Prep for 1,500–1,800 Calories

Vegan Meal Prep for 1,500–1,800 Calories

 

Have you ever wondered if it’s possible to follow a vegan meal plan and still get enough protein? By carefully planning your meals to include soy proteins, beans, legumes, and whole grains, it’s possible!

We’ve done the legwork for you with this vegan meal prep to ensure your diet is rich in complete and complementary proteins. While this menu is slightly lower in protein and higher in carbs than the regular 21 Day Fix Eating Plan, it is equally as healthy and is higher in fiber, which helps with satiety and assists with weight loss.

When following this vegan meal prep, you’ll use the color-coded Portion-Control Containers to measure your food. They make it so simple to make sure you’re eating the right portions!

The green container is for veggies, purple is for fruits, red is for protein, yellow is for carbs, blue is for healthy fats, and orange is for seeds and dressings. Since this meal prep is vegan, you may notice it has more yellow containers than the 1,500–1,800 calorie meal prep in the 21 Day Fix guide. If you’re following a lower-calorie diet, try this 1,200–1,500 Vegan Meal Prep!

However, we’ve differentiated between whole grains that are essential to a vegan diet (yellow a), and tubers and more processed carbohydrates (yellow b).

Vegan Meal Prep for 1,500–1,800 Calories

  • 6 green containers
  • 2 purple containers
  • 4 red containers
  • 2 yellow A containers
  • 1 yellow B container
  • 1 blue container
  • 1 orange container
  • 4 teaspoons
