WEEKEND WARRIORS UNITE
What is a ‘weekend warrior’? The term refers to those of us who only participate in physical activity or adventure, whether that’s working out or playing a sport, solely on the weekends. This includes those who compete in marathons, triathlons or Spartan races. They don’t have time to get their exercise in daily and, therefore, spend several hours doing these activities over the weekend. But during the Holidays that can prove to be an impossibility. 1TAC is making it easy to win back some time for the things you love.
TO THE NEW 1TAC POWERPLUS BATTERY LINE.
Being a weekend warrior is better than being a couch potato, but it’s important to keep tabs on your physical capabilities and take necessary precautions when you are jumping back into activity. Historically, there has been a negative connotation associated with the ‘weekend warrior’ term, but according to the Journal of the American Medical Association, there is also evidence supporting the long-term benefits of this fitness regimen over those who live more sedentary lifestyles.

TIPS FOR THE WEEKEND WARRIOR
If your weekly schedule has made you adopt the weekend warrior lifestyle, there are some important tips to follow:
- Get plenty of rest – Eat a healthy diet. This provides your body with much needed internal repairs and the fuel needed to perform physical activity. Incorporate plenty of vegetables, fruits, whole grains, and lean meats. Cut down on the red meats.
- Staying hydrated. Clean filtered water is ideal and much needed for proper brain function. When we exercise, we lose water much more quickly. It’s important for men and women to drink at least 15 cups and 11 cups, respectively every day. As we sweat, we lose water and need to replace it. Otherwise, dehydration is a concern.
- Wear proper sports gear and footwear. An injury is a concern and you want to look your best and feel your best when you’re out there.
- Warm Up and Cool Down: Performing a 10-minute warm-up enables your muscles to increase in temperature. A proper cool down helps your muscles recover.
- Do supplemental activities: Stay moving. Try your hardest to find 15-30 minutes during the week for activities that maintain strength like a short jog, planks or dynamic movements that mimic your weekend activity.
- Mix it up: Participating in the same activities and exercise can predispose you to overuse injuries or get bored. To maintain your interest try new things. Also to maintain your body’s functional strength, maximize your activities and workouts by alternating the muscles you’re using. For example, if you’re a tennis player, give your arms a break and instead, opt for a weekend of soccer or hiking. Try rock climbing!

Dos and Don’ts of Last-Minute Holiday Shopping
IF YOU’VE PUT OFF holiday shopping for yet another weekend and still can’t get through your growing holiday to-do list, make sure that you’re not paying a premium for last-minute gifts. Shopping at the last minute may be your only option, but there are still steps you can take to keep costs down and share the holiday spirit under budget.
Check out some of our dos and don’ts of holiday shopping at the last minute.
Do: Ask about free gift-wrapping services. Many stores will offer free gift-wrapping services on in-store purchases, so you’ll have that gift ready to go the same day you buy it. You’ll save time, or course, but you’ll also save money on gift wrap and assorted supplies.
Don’t: Go shopping without a list. When you’re on a tight budget and don’t have the option to splurge, make sure that you’re armed with a shopping list and plan to keep your spending on track. It’s easy to get derailed once you’re in the store and on the hunt for gifts. Your list of must-haves will keep you focused on your task (time is running out, after all), and your list will help you stay on budget.
Do: Check the store or shopping center schedule. Many stores will open early and close late to accommodate last-minute shoppers like you. This means that you can avoid the after-work traffic jam by arriving later in the evening or rising early thttps://1tac.com/cart/a133d7f986/checkout?aff_id=blog BOSHL1200o get your holiday shopping done before work. Check the mall and store hours to confirm opening and closing times and plan accordingly.

Don’t: Forget about your local grocery or convenience stores. Many grocery stores, drugstores and convenience stores are stocked with holiday items that make for great last-minute holiday gifts. From boxes of chocolate to gift baskets filled with goodies, stocking stuffers and smaller gifts may be available at low prices at your local grocery or hardware store.
Do: Make use of smartphone apps for last-minute deals. Whether you’re heading to the electronics store, a gourmet food store or your favorite big-box store, use shopping apps, such as SlickDeals, RetailMeNot and Coupon Sherpa, to get the latest coupon codes, coupons and other discounts on online and offline purchases at the last minute.
Don’t: Worry about Christmas Eve crowds. If you’re the ultimate procrastinator who left the holiday shopping until Christmas Eve, there’s still hope. Most people are already home for the holidays – and at home for Christmas Eve – so if you still have a few gifts to round up for Christmas Day celebrations, now’s your time to shine.
