Benefits for Stretching

Stretching is a controversial topic in the fitness world: lately more studies show that stretching damages your muscle strength and can cause more harm than good. When you stretch your muscles you weaken them at the same time and a reduction of strength in your muscles is definitely not something most people would desire before a race or a workout. Stretching is definitely not suggested in the warm up, an ideal warm up needs to be aerobic exercise that takes place before your workout.

Some studies show that the effects of stretching disappear after 15 minutes and for this reason there is no need for it. They say that the length of your muscles are controlled heavily by your neuromuscular system, so it is your nervous system and your habits that give you tightness and stretching only provides temporary relief.

Research gets to the bottom of the tight muscle issue which is so deep that it could be a topic for another article itself but in summary muscle tightness is found to be related to what

Jogging Make You Happy

The genetics of men, for example, have evolved to a high threshold for lactic acid over time, allowing our ancestors to chase the world’s most dangerous predators and strike them down for food. After finishing off their prey, they would drag pounds of meat back to camp for dinner. I’m sure you’ll agree, that’s an extraordinary level of superhuman fitness that fed thousands in their tribe.

You’ll be amazed to discover that there is a link to high intensity physical exercise on a lactic threshold level, to the release of endorphins in the brain. Endorphins act as your natural “drug” that make a person more energetic, more awake and, yes, most definitely happier.

Day after day or night after night, I worked at it and gradually built up my strength until I was over 100 reps per session, then 200, then 500+. My strength increased incredibly and with strength, so did my size.

Exercise with Family and Have Fun

Competing in activity-based video games. Technology is not all bad. In this instance, you can make it work for the whole family. Gaming consoles now incorporate technology that is able to track the movement of players. These games can either involve dancing, adventures, or virtual sports (i.e. tennis). There is even a game that encourages the destruction of random fruit thrown into the virtual air. The player’s hands become virtual swords that slice through said fruits. These games are not only fun to play but also encourage friendly competition. Trust me when I say that it works up quite the sweat.

Walking or riding to the local park or school. This is a no brainer. This is the lowest hanging fruit for getting the family to exercise together. Incorporate scooters, skateboards, and rollerblades if you have them. Just not the electric variety.

Pre- or post-dinner walks. Even if just a brisk walk around the neighborhood before or after the family meal. Anything to wake-up an otherwise sluggish metabolism and get the blood going.

Sustain Body Fitness

When you do exercise, try to focus more on balancing your body. If you are not very confident with how you appear to other people, then you really need to repeat a number of aerobic activities to develop a flat abdomen, and to build strong muscles and bones. With repetitive exercises, you will notice a change in your body shape – a change for the better.

If you can come up with a good system of exercise, your resting and training time will definitely be balanced. Your body knows when it is burning calories and exercising regularly helps you build up muscles even when you are at rest. It is not good for the body to be over-exercised. It does not allow your muscles to recover and rebuild.

Another recommendation by experts is to engage your body in an exercise that involves weights. The proper means of getting your potential to its maximum level is by lifting heavy weights in a given period. There should also be proper guidance during the activity in order to have less risk and to avoid failure and accidents.

You should adapt to changes. We call it variety. The technical

Getting in Shape After 40

Getting in shape after 40 should not only become a personal goal but should be part of one’s mind training. But what do we really mean by “getting in shape?” Well, basically it means maintaining good mental and physical health and staying body fit: fit to work, fit to walk and brisk-walk, fit to run, and fit to do exercises appropriate to the level of a 40-year old. This includes a healthy sexual regimen.

At this age, aside from losing a certain percentage of muscle mass, neurological fluctuations in the brain could lead to a decrease in HGH, the ability to synthesize protein and changes in reflexes and coordination. For these reasons getting in shape after 40 may be a bit more demanding mentally, emotionally and physically.

But if one has been doing regular workouts at age 20 and continues to do so at 30, the likelihood that the use of a fitness center with cardio equipment and other fitness machines like the motorized treadmill or gym bikes and shoulder press could still be done at age 40. It should be advisable though to consult a physician before using the fitness center.

Killer Six-Pack

Start with your right knee and bring it forward towards your right elbow, then return to the plank position. Repeat this process with your left knee.

Add bicycle crunches to your workout.

Put your hands behind your head, lie on your back with your legs raised and bent at a 90° angle. Bring your right elbow towards your left knee then your left elbow towards your right knee. Like traditional crunches, these should be done slowly and deliberately to get the best result.

Carry Weights
