Lack of time

If lack of time is your barrier then try more efficient forms of training like HIIT training which cycles between high and low paced exercises. Try reframing the meaning exercise in your head, It doesn’t have to be a gruelling 3-hour session at the gym. Exercise can be as simple as taking the stairs or walking the dog!

This is one I suffer from! Try changing your workout routine or even try your hand at cross-fit which is a variety of activities aimed at burning fat. You could even start a workout group with your loved ones, turning exercise time into family bonding time.

Inconvenience

The best way is to incorporate it into your daily routine. Make sure to make your exercise isn’t dependent on the time of day or the weather.

Travel

Injury

Always make sure you are fully recovered before you return to your normal workout routine.

The 5 Best Fitness Tips

Posted on Posted in fitness, health

Make a fitness goal

Only people who get to their destination are those with the defined target from the start. When you do not have a definite goal in mind, there is the tendency to go off track in your life adventure, as the only result of unplanned everyday living is confusion. No matter how small your goal is, it will get you focused on something worthwhile for a fulfilling day. It could be to achieve 10 push-ups every morning before work or eat to a healthy meal for breakfast. Just have a goal to engage you.

Be careful what you think

Our thoughts are powerful, and it has been proven that what we believe is what we become. You are sick only when you feel so; Well and healthy when you think you are. Above all, make your thoughts resonate what you really want in life.

Make it easy, because life is easy

Nothing gets complicated unless you make it so. You know what you need, create the time, create the action and act without delay. There are fitness gyms around, locate one and get in their program. It can be weekend only; It can be every day, go for what is convenient for you. Nothing is a problem except doing nothing.

Life is not a race!

Eat well, eliminate foods not good for your fitness goal

You are what you eat. The world does not lack information anymore; It is information that requires people. Get the information you need about eating healthy. You do not know where to get the information; Did I hear you say that? OK, you have a phone, do not you? The information is already on your phone, look for it. Stop taking soda or juices with lots of sugar; You do not need it more than you need water, a universal body coolant! Avoid all foods injurious to your health, it's your responsibility to know them and stop!

Try something new for a change

The workout is not cast only in heavy lifting, continuous running, climbing the mountains or 5k run to be fit, its starts with small things that get you focused, and free your mind from worries and idleness. Try things like yoga, meditation, dancing with friends and family, hearty laughter, giggling and stay on the positive side of life. …

Three Minutes a Day to a Better Life

Posted on Posted in fitness, health

Would you like a restful night of sleep? I mean sleeping like a baby, no insomnia, or waking up in the middle of the night. What about mood elevation, reduced feelings of depression, and stress reduction? What if I told you, that you can reduce chronic pain without medication? A holistic approach to a better quality of life, feel good look good kind of thing. The treatment I am talking about is called Whole Body Cryotherapy.

Cryotherapy is the practice of using cold temperatures to promote natural healing and wellness that dates back to ancient civilizations. Reaching temperatures as low as -120 Celsius (-184ºF), whole body cryotherapy is a fast and effective alternative to traditional ice baths. The treatment has been used for over thirty years in Europe and has made its way to the USA. Athletes use it for faster recovery, muscle soreness alleviation, and overall better performance. Celebrities use it for weight loss and for younger looking skin, due to the increased collagen production after regular use of Cryotherapy.

Allow me to tell you my story how I came across cryotherapy. I have been a fitness trainer for the past ten years. I lift weights regularly and live an active lifestyle. The heavy lifting took a toll on my body and I started suffering from lower back pain. At times, I could hardly bend and performing daily activities became a struggle for me. My sleep was interrupted each time I change a position, and I would feel a sudden lower back spasm. I had to learn how to sleep on my back. I did not like living a limited life, and I went to see a medical doctor. She assured me that it’s just inflammation and prescribed anti-inflammatory medication and muscle relaxers for the course of one month. As I was taking the medication, my pain gradually decreased, and I started feeling normal again. Woohoo, no pain! I was so delighted, but not for long. After some time, the back pain returned. I wasn’t happy. Overly I am a healthy person. I take care of myself by eating wholesome organic diet, I practice mindfulness, do yoga, all the things a health conscientious person does to keep herself at the top performance. Therefore, taking medication for the rest of my life to relieve my lower back pain was not a good solution for me. So, I started researching non traditional ways of alleviating my pain. That’s when I came across an article in a health magazine about cryotherapy. The author was pouring about the benefits of cryotherapy and one of them was inflammation reduction! Inflammation! That is what I have, an inflammation!! Being curious and would try anything at least once, kind of person, I dived into the idea. The closest cryotherapy spa to me was 30 min away. The next day I found myself driving there. I have to be honest, the unknown gets me a little nervous, and the thought of me being in such cold temperatures …

Tomato – The God Food for Nutrition and Human Health

Posted on Posted in fitness, health

A recent study conducted at Ohio State University in the US reported that the dietary carotenoids, that gives tomatoes their colour, will protect the skin from ultraviolet (UV) light damage. With the number of people being diagnosed with skin cancer increases with each passing year, it’s a good news that the daily consumption of tomato may cut the chances of skin cancer.

This small, round, sweet, juicy, delicious red fruit is one of the largest consuming vegetables in the world, not only because of its culinary purpose but also due to its numerous health benefits and nutrition. Tomato for skin cancer was just the latest example for its infinite fitness blessings.

From the time immemorial, there exists a long love affair between man and tomato due to its capacity for better acclimatization to various environment. Today, it comes in a vast array of varieties differing in colour, size, shape and taste. Now tomato has emerged as one of the most desired vegetables in the world due to its unique taste and nutritional qualities. More than 100 new tomato varieties are being made available in the world market with each passing year.

The health benefits of tomatoes gave it the title “God food” and forms an integral part of cuisines all over the world. Tomato is also a good source of potassium, manganese, magnesium, phosphorous and copper. Organic compounds like lycopene also attribute to the health benefits. The criteria for selection of tomato varies with country and the culture. Asian markets for tomatoes are particular about lighter colours while in European markets, small shapes of tomatoes are preferred.

So how the “God food” dominate the seed market? A report by Market Intelligence, a market research firm, states, ‘The Tomato Seed Market revenue covers a whopping 829.8 Million USD of the 7.8 Billion USD revenue of Vegetable Seed Market’. The numerical figure clearly depicts the dominance of seed market by tomatoes.

Tomato is the most widely grown and consumed vegetable globally. China is the largest producer of tomatoes followed by India, United States, Turkey and Egypt. The food processing market occupies 30% of the destination market for tomato while 70% of it is consumed as fresh produce.

Nowadays, the main focus of leading seed companies all over the globe is to improve the yield, adaptability to various climatic conditions and developing varieties with disease and pest tolerance. High emphasis has been laid to developing disease resistance tomatoes because tomato is attacked by more than 200 diseases and pests. Some of the important diseases of tomatoes are bacterial wilt, Tomato Yellow Leaf Curl Virus (TYLCV), Groundnut Bud Necrosis Virus (GBNV), etc. Breeders from companies are also working on developing flavours for the final taste of tomatoes. The growth of tomato seed is heavily credited to the use of hybrid seeds and usage of high-value experimental varieties in developed economies. Although the investment in this industry is high, the return on investment is dramatically encouraging farmers globally to adopt hybrid tomato seeds for its …

The 8 Basic Punches Of Western Boxing

Posted on Posted in fitness

The sport of western boxing has had a lot of fans since the early days of the late 19th century in America. Even when organized public fighting matches were still considered a crime punishable by time in jail and a fine they drew a horde of spectators. But then again, who doesn’t love a good fight?

Fighting way back then looked a whole lot different than fighting currently does. Over the years more science and research has been done, into human movement and fitness. The upright postures with hands held low that make early boxing easy to identify have been changed over the years.

In the 21st century, fighters appear more fluid, more aggressive, and in a crouched stance. Legs bent, body weight forward on toes. Unlike the fighters of yesteryear, today, a fighter today uses his hands as well as shoulders to obscure and protect that path that leads right to the “kisser”, or “button”.

The fighters main weapons continue to be his hands, while they also use a lot of holding, pushing, and leaning on strategies to wear down their opponent. With those weapons, there is generally an arsenal of 8 specific punches that a good fighter will develop. From these eight punches there is an incredible array of “combinations” that can be thrown as he tries to get past the defenses of the opponent in the opposite corner.

This list is a brief description of those 8 punches of boxing:

  1. “The Jab”. This punch is thrown from the lead hand. It’s quick, sometimes powerful and is used either to “keep your opponent off of you”, or to judge his distance while setting up a power punch.
  2. “The Cross”. This punch is from the rear hand and is a straight power punch. Usually used as a counter when your opponent throws a punch from the opposite side.
  3. “The Hook To The Jaw”. This punch comes from the lead hand from the side while keeping your elbow bent. The object is to come around the defense and connect with the side of the opponents face. The hook carries a lot of knock out power.
  4. “Rear Hand Hook”. Similar to the previous, because this punch comes from the rear, it’s generally used as a counter punch when your opponent has “left himself open”. The target could be the head as well as the body.
  5. “Lead Hook To the Body”. Again, from the lead hand “hooking” into the body. The target is mostly the ribs or kidney. This particular punch is so devastating that it, when landing successfully, has ended many, many fights with opponent still conscious.
  6. “The Overhand Punch”. This punch is a power punch also. It comes from the rear hand. It’s similar to the cross, however, it has a slight arcing motion to it. The purpose of this punch is go over the opponents targeting the face of the opponent. Imagine a baseball pitcher’s form and you’ll have the basic concept.
  7. “Lead Hand Uppercut”. The uppercut is used

What is a Healthy Eating Plan?

Posted on Posted in fitness, health

Healthy eating is important for everyone, from babies to the elderly. Learning to eat well is more than just eating a variety of foods so that your body gets the proper nutrients. It is also about enjoyment of foods and maintaining a healthy weight. Anyone can eat for good health. It involves 2 simple steps. First is to eat foods from all the different food groups. The second step is to eat a variety of foods from each group every day. Sounds simple. However so many people are not following a healthy eating plan.

Unhealthy eating causes illness and weight problems. Type 2 diabetes is increasing dramatically and is directly linked to the increase in obesity. Heart disease and some cancers are also linked to obesity.

Dangers Of Metabolism Boosters And Energy Drinks

Posted on Posted in fitness, health

The main purpose of metabolism boosting substances is to assist body when exercising. They are there to accelerate calorie burning process. There is a common misperception that metabolism boosters can replace the role of physical activity in losing weight. Fault for this belief lies partly by online diet marketers. Last 5 years are known as “diet spamming” period. Majority of e-mail owners were receiving at least 1 “lose weight – no exercise needed product” mail weekly in their inbox. Though it is true that those products will make body burn more calories even with no exercise, dangers of such doing overshadow by far those hardly measurable weight loss effects.

Untrained body of overweight people is simply not up to the increased heart rate and blood circulation that energy drink or metabolism booster can cause. Heart attack can be the consequence. Each body needs time to adapt on faster blood circulation. Any instant shock caused by metabolism boosting diet product is a health hazard. This is especially important for people who face weight issues and have one or another kind of medical condition related to: high blood pressure, elevated cholesterol levels or any kind of heart muscle disorder.

Overweight people, who have long neglected physical exercises, should avoid dietary products that promise weight loss with no effort needed. Those products are predominantly based on extracts of different citrus fruits, alcohol and in 90% of cases they will content caffeine. For individuals just starting with their weight loss program, other kinds of dietary supplements should be considered. Here it should be emphasized that there is an important difference between overweight and obese individuals. No obesity case should ever be addressed without proper medical guidance.

One should also never underestimate the power of drinking water. Water is an effective and gentle body stimulant, with no negative side effects. Metabolism boosters and energy drinks should find their place in fitness studios with people who are daily devoted to hard physical exercise.…

Obviously, you don’t want to disturb your little one if they are peacefully sleeping, but if they are awake pace around the house holding them. You could also walk around performing lunges or arm raises., as your little one sleeps peacefully in their cot.

Some of the other ideal pacing workouts include walking lunges, hop squats, and walking kicks.

High School Wrestling: John Jesse’s Wisdom on Strength and Conditioning

Posted on Posted in fitness, medicine

In 1974, a book entitled Wrestling Physical Conditioning Encyclopedia was published. This book was written by a man named John Jesse.

Conditioning coach Vernon Gambetta writes, "You are probably asking who is John Jesse? John Jesse was an expert on strength training, injury prevention and rehabilitation from Southern California."

I never knew of this book’s existence until recently even though it’s obviously been around a long time. I came across it while surfing the internet and researching wrestling conditioning.

I borrowed a copy from the public library and found it really fascinating. John Jesse’s book doesn’t seem that outdated even though it was published 38 years ago. He really knew a lot about strength and conditioning.

So, what did he know?

Year-Round Training

Jesse emphasizes the importance of continuity in training. Continuous year-round physical training is imperative if a wrestler wishes to be successful. When discussing the importance of continuity he points out that, “Repeated efforts are required for the formation of conditioned-reflexes in the nervous system required for the development of great skill.”

A wrestler needs to train continuously the entire calendar year. However, Jesse recognizes the importance of breaking down the yearly training into cycles. Jesse divides the year-round training into four cycles.

The Four Cycles

  • Transition (Active Rest) Cycle – a period of one month immediately following the competitive season
  • Basic (Foundation) Cycle – a period of five months divided into three stages
  • Principal (Specific Preparation) Cycle – a period of two months
  • Competitive – generally a period of four months

Jesse advises to take one week totally off immediately following the season and then begin the transition cycle. However, you are not to engage in any wrestling or skills work during the transition cycle. During that cycle one should abstain from any wrestling, but you need to begin training for strength, endurance, and flexibly again. If you take too long of a break the physical attributes you’ve gained will begin to dissipate.

I’m sure that most of you have learned about the concept of periodization. Well, as you can see, that’s exactly what John Jesse is writing about.

In this current age, periodization is still used. Periodization is basically just planning your training. Dr. Fred Hatfield (a.k.a. Dr. Squat) is a big advocate of periodization. In an article entitled The Simplicity of Periodicity he writes of the “tremendous value of short-term periodization in your training.”

Moreover, he adds, “As your competition draws nearer and nearer, your training objectives change, and therefore your training methods change commensurably.”

Sports scientist Tudor Bompa has said, “We either have periodization or chaos.”

John Jesse writes something very similar in his book. He states, “Without a long-range training plan the athlete’s training can easily degenerate into chaos.”

Jesse knew what he was talking about.

Do you think champion wrestlers only work out during wrestling season? Do you think they train in some haphazard fashion? No! They train year-round with a well developed plan in mind just like John Jesse advocated and …
