The Road to Rogue: Learning About Different Body Types

Hello everyone!

This week I found something very interesting. Apparently, we all have different body types that fit into 3 groups. They are Ectomorph, Endomorph, And Mesomorph. Here are the meanings of each body type:

If you would like to know which body type you are, here’s the What Is Your Body Type? Take Our Test! From Bodybuilding.com

I found out that I’m a Mesomorph. So here’s what I know about the Macros of Mesomorphs. They are supposed to eat 40% Carbs, 30% Fat, and 30% Protein. The time limit for a workout should be an hour and no longer. You will feel fatigued if you overdo it. Which has happened to me countless times and now I know why.

Here’s the training regime recommended by rachaelattard.com.

Regular cardio will be the key factor in keeping your body from gaining fat and compound weight exercises will help you achieve lean muscle. Here are some key guidelines:

  • Weight training 3 times per week
  • Moderate cardio 3 times per week
  • HIIT 1-2 times per week
  • Ab exercises 3 times per week
  • One rest day per week

Your weights should be moderately heavy and your reps moderate to high (8-12). The more advanced you are, the heavier your weight can be. Keep the rest between your sets at around 45-60 seconds.

As you can see, I’ve gathered information from multiple sources. When you are researching information, it’s great to not depend on one source. Look into multiple websites and books to make sure you are getting the right information. Thank you guys for reading this post. If you take the test, let me know which body type you are. I’m very interested. I hope the information helps you on your weight loss journey. I might give an update in two weeks explaining how this has helped me. Remember to stay healthy and have a great day!

Road To Rogue: Top 3 Reasons to Like Wireless Headphones

Hello everyone!

I hope your weekend was amazing. I took the time to relax is they are my rest days lol. Today I wanted to talk about the difference between regular headphones and wireless ones. I wanted to make this post to explain the reason why the wireless headphones are a great workout tool and, in my experience, is a necessity.

I use to look at other people with wireless headphones and thought, look at them being fancy with their expensive headphones. The fact that you can get a set for under $20 is recent. They were VERY expensive when they first came out. Everything is when it’s a new technology right? 

Last year, when I took YouTube seriously, I wanted to do a video about two sets of inexpensive wireless headphones. I found one at Target for $10, not joking, and another set at Michael’s for $18. I wasn’t able to do the video but FYI I love the set at Michael’s. I use them every time I visit the gym. 

Once I started to use them regularly, I saw a huge advantage of using them. First and the most obvious, no wires! I can’t count how many times my hand or arm hit the cord and either the buds were snatched out of my ears or my phone hit the floor. It was so annoying! Not only that but I would have to put the phone in my sports bra or inside my pants because there were, of course, attached.

Second, I can put my phone anywhere. Since there is no cord, I wouldn’t have to worry about where I placed my phone. I can put it on the floor beside me or in the machine water bottle holder. When I first realized this, it blew my mind. It felt so good doing workouts with free weights and knowing the phone can be in front of me on the floor and I can still hear the music. 

Third, I won’t have to use my phone to change the song or the volume. With the controls being on the headphones, I can press one button. When I used the regular ones, I had to stop what I was doing, take out my phone and do it from there. For me, it kills my vibe. 

I hoped this helped the people who were thinking about getting them. You don’t have to pay a high price. You can go to your local Walgreen, Target, Michael’s, anywhere and get a great set of headphones with good sound quality.

Thank you so much for reading my post. Have a great day and remember to stay healthy!

Things Are Changing In 2018

Hello everyone!

I hope 2018 is treating you well so far. We are starting off this year with moving to a new place. Unfortunately, I won’t be able to create videos for a while unless I do some sort of vlog. Currently, we are looking for a new home but that’s not stopping us from achieving our goals. We’ve been going to the gym consistently this week. We are working on eating healthy because we are trying to save money. We all know that eating healthy is expensive but we are watching ourselves.

While we were moving, my poor phone was broken and couldn’t be used. I’m getting a new one but it won’t be an iPhone. It’s ok though. I need a phone. Things might be rough right now but we know what the endgame is and this makes it easier. Out with the old and in with the new. We aren’t letting this get us down. We know it’s a good thing.

Thank you guys for reading the post. Remember to stay healthy and have a great day!

HAPPY NEW YEAR!

Hello everyone and Happy New Year!

I can’t wait to see what this year brings. 2017 was a year for us to learn what direction we wanted to go for FTC. I mean we knew before but we have a REAL game plan this time. We know what steps we need to take to make FTC the inspiration we want it to be.

I want to take the time to thank all our followers, youtube subscribers, and patrons for your support. With you, FTC won’t be the success that it is now. You guys motivate us to keep going to spread the word of health and fitness in the otaku community.

We have big plans this year! You guys will have to stay tuned!

Thank you for reading this post. Remember to stay healthy and have a great day.

Shonen Jump Vinyl Figures Mystery Minis Unboxing

Thank you for watching my Shonen Jump Vinyl Figures Mystery Minis Unboxing. I found this box in Michaels, which is rare because they mostly sell vinyl figures of tv shows, heroes and Disney characters. If you want me to unbox more, let me know in the comments.

I’m going to look for more anime type mystery boxes that are not like Anime Loot Crate or Akibento because I believe that people need to know of other mystery boxes that are out there other than the big boxes. I can’t wait for this month’s Akibento Box though.

Florida Supercon 2017 Videos!

Good morning everyone! Here are all the videos I was able to upload on our Youtube channel for Florida Supercon 2017. I wasn’t able to cosplay but it was so much fun. I met a lot of friends and some interesting people! Enjoy the videos and if you haven’t already, please subscribe!

3 Weeks Til Florida Supercon

I’m so excited that Florida Supercon is so close. Things might change from our original plans. We might now be cosplaying Rogue and Storm because we don’t have to money for the fabric which sucks. Star and I have made progress with our weight loss. We both reached 10lbs lost and we’ve lost inches off our waist. She lost 3 inches and I lost 2. But Florida Supercon isn’t our only goal. We want to look great in ANY cosplay we do in the future.

We are planning on going to Holiday Matsuri at the end of the year. Maybe to Paradise City or DragonCon. We will see. We’ve talked about our Youtube Channels and what we wanted to place on them. Here’s what we came up with so far;

Fitness To Cosplay will have workout videos in cosplay, healthy recipes, reviews on different products and equipment, convention vlogs, cosplay slideshows, and cosplay lookbooks.

Tsuki Nerdy Fitness will have my personal vlogs, videos on different discussions,  reviews on anime, manga, and other nerdy stuff like movies.

Star Cosplay Fitness will have her personal discussions, Japanese culture and recipes like such as how to make an onigiri, and cosplay tutorials.

We are still coming up with content to post about. I will post our channels below if you would like to subscribe to them. If you have any suggestions like us know about them. Thank you guys for reading! Have a great day and remember to STAY HEALTHY!
