Exercise & Fitness


 

by Taylor Ryan

Most women love the idea of working out and getting in shape, but following through is usually what separates those that get the results and those that just end up complaining and making excuses. I want to help you increase the chances that you’ll stick to your workouts by taking a look at three unexpected benefits of a great workout program.

Fitness training balances five elements of good health. Make sure your routine includes aerobic fitness, muscular fitness, stretching, core exercise and balance training. Whether you're a novice taking the first steps toward fitness or an exercise fanatic hoping to optimize your results, a well-rounded fitness training program is essential. Use the five primary elements of fitness training to create a balanced routine.

At this year’s Radiological Society of North America’s annual meeting a study on exercise and knee health was presented. The question: Does activity level (low, medium, or high) impact the health of the knee joint?

Running, biking, swimming, tennis, soccer, strength training (the list goes on and on) are all fantastic ways to improve your health, fitness and overall well-being. However, sport can be a dangerous business and some of the worst injuries occur without the involvement of another person. There are a host of injuries which are common to many sports, and preventing them is key to staying in play. A few helpful hints can steer you clear of some of these more common injuries.

One way that the larger breasted woman does get in trouble is when it comes to exercise. A lot of women I train get so annoyed when they workout because they have their boobies bouncing in their face or getting in the way when they try to do exercises like mountain climbers or cherry pickers.
 
Yes, it is annoying but it can actually cause real issues!

When you're under stress, you may find it harder to keep up healthy-eating habits. Also, during particularly stressful times, you may eat in an attempt to fulfill emotional needs, which is sometimes called stress eating. And you may be especially likely to eat high-calorie foods during times of stress, even when you're not hungry...


by Coach Robert Dos Remedios

As a coach running dozens and hundreds of athletes through their motions every day, I see a lot of common problems that people tend to have using equipment and doing exercises correctly...

 

Editor´s Note: Coach Dos does a great job of explaining why these ten mistakes can cost you results and precious time. We can all use more time, right? Take his advice and you just might find yourself in better shape and spending more time doing the things you love!

 

Exercise & Fitness


by Laura Dion-Jones

We all have something we need to let go of.

For some, it's our unhealthy, excess weight, the food we're eating to keep ourselves overweight, or our lack of exercise...

 

Editor’s Note from Bess Coble: This is the first time I’d read the story, “She Let Go” by Ernest Holmes, which Laura shares in her article. The act of letting go is so simple in theory, yet can be so hard to practice. All the action in the world won’t get us anywhere if we aren’t truly willing to just let go.

It wasn't always easy to find time to work out when my children were little. When Kelly and Katie were in diapers, it was all about tending to their needs. But I still never let a moment go by without trying to fit in some activity...

...So instead of spending 60 minutes working out, suddenly you're out of the gym in just 30 minutes, and you've burned twice as many calories in the process.  After I took Rafael through his first circuit workout, I'll never forget his response:  "I can't believe I've wasted all these years!"...

 

 


by Karen Collins, MS, RD, CDN

If exercise has become a punishment for excess weight or overeating, it is hard to find joy in it. This is a real concern, because research now points to exercise as one of the best steps we can take to stay healthy.

The Secret to Eating Carbs

by Kathy Smith

When you munch on a muffin or take a swig of Gatorade, here’s what happens to the carbs that you just put in your mouth; they’re converted into glucose, which is essentially the body’s energy. The problem is that there’s only so much glucose that you actually need. The rest is converted into glycogen and stored in the liver and in your muscles. When glycogen storage reaches full capacity, all the extra carbs are converted into fat...
