Health benefits of flax seeds:

Of all plants in the planet kingdom flax seeds have the highest level of omega 3, an essential fatty acid. Omega 3 and omega 6 are considered essential because the body cannot produce them.

Omega 3 is very important to athletes. Aside from its ability to reduce inflammation caused by movement, omega 3 plays an integral part in the metabolism of fat. A nutritional program consisting of at least 2 tbsp of flaxseeds daily will allow the body to burn body fat as fuel. This is important to anyone wanting to shed body fat, but it is of major importance to athletes who need to spare muscle glycogen. As the body becomes proficient at burning fat as fuel (by training and top quality nutrition) endurance dramatically improves.


To understand the significance of omega 3 to exercise, let’s compare two athletes, both at an equal level of fitness. One relies purely on his body’s ability to burn carbohydrates, while the other has fueled his body with high quality fats as well. The athlete who feeds his muscles only carbohydrates can store only enough muscle glycogen for about a 90 minutes workout. After that, he needs to ingest more or his performance will decline. On the other hand, the athlete who has incorporated omega 3 and omega 6 into his diet (and trained properly) will be able to draw from fat reserves. This means the athlete has a dual fuel source, lengthening the time it takes for muscle glycogen to be depleted while improving endurance – not to mention creating a leaner body.


Flax seeds are high in potassium, an integral electrolyte for active people, because it is in part responsible for smooth muscle contractions. The body loses potassium when it sweats, so this mineral must be replaced regularly to keep the body’s levels adequately stocked. Potassium also regulates fluid balance, helping the body keep hydrated.


Flax seeds contain both soluble and insoluble fiber. Soluble fiber slows the release of carbohydrates into the bloodstream, helping control insulin levels and prolongs energy. Soluble fiber, when consumed, gives the body a sense of fullness, signaling its hunger mechanism to shut off. For this reason, people who are trying to lose weight should increase their consumption of soluble fiber. Insoluble fiber is important in terms of digestive system health. Insoluble fiber plays a cleansing role by insuring toxins doesn’t build up and spread into the bloodstream. Like hemp seeds, flaxseeds have anti-inflammatory properties, welcoming in any person’s life. It is a complete protein with all essential amino acids.


I suggest buying whole flax seeds, and grinding them in a coffee grinder. Because flax seeds are small with hard sells, they will pass through the system undigested if consumed whole. Grinding them exposes their oils and nutrient value so they can be effectively utilized by the body.

  • Achieving your goal is like driving your car to a specific destination‼️
Make sure you have enough fuel, clean oil and sufficient water. You are going nowhere on your fitness journey with out fuel= food and supplements specifically calculated for your current state aiming straight towards your goal. 
What’s the most important in order to set your GPS? Starting position and destination, right? You need to know exactly where you are and where you are going, full address. That’s the same with your goal. I can’t stress enough how important it is to know your current state and to be real specific about your vision, that will really rocket you forward with tons of drive. We can add even more emotion to it, by describing in full detail all your reasons why the goal is so important to you. This is going to be your emotional fuel to get you to your target, get you organised with your meals and training. A specific time on your goal is a must, that makes it real. Now in order to get there the only thing left is the MAP, our massive action plan, a combination of your specific nutritional planning, your personal training program, as well as other tools, that will get you there, guaranteed. This is my expertise with my combined studies and experience with hundreds of clients; just a meal plan is never enough, a training program only, won’t do it, neither the two combined, because you need to actually get it done and continuously keep on driving towards your target, never getting off track and if you do, gently being redirected back again. That is what I am offering you, I will make sure that you get enough fuel to get there.

  • So, a girl should only train her butt?
Yesterday I posted a photo of my glutes and every one went wow, incredible, amazing, sexy and...then I posted a training video, where I am pumped by training with Jack @jack.alshayeb the light in the gym is excellent and Jack really knows how to film, so my back and shoulders looks incredible 🙌🏼 the photo of my butt and video of my back and delts are both made the same day...and I got a lot of reactions like: “just don’t over do it now” I find that so funny, and well I think a well trained back and delts on fire on a girl is more than hot, powerful and expresses me, and my personality. That being said, I work me according to my goal and I train YOU according to YOUR goal. So if I have a girl training with me who wants to focus at her glutes and less back, then of course I am specifically training her exactly for that look. I have many girls wanting the Victoria secret look with a twist of slightly more fitness and I am an expert in that look. My own goal however is wild raw terminator in female form 💯🤟🏼😜 get excited DM me or e-mail me at and let’s train you and feed you exactly according to your dream image and feeling. P.S. follow Jack @jack.alshayeb he knows his stuff 💯🙌🏼 P.P.S this body is build on 8 years of hard core training, 10000 upon 10000 of hours and nutritional meal planning 24/7/365 always on #fit #fitness #physique #back #delts #trainhard #liftheavy #eatclean #nutritionist #mealplanning #mealprep #sportsnutrition #training #fitspo #fitfam #gains #musclegain #pump #leanmuscle #fatloss #fatburn #personaltrainer #goals #transformation #success #glutes
