• Tips for Good Health

    appleAchieving perfect health can be as simple as it is complicated. Many people find it extremely difficult to maintain good health due to one reason or another. Be that as it may, there are a few things that one can do to ensure they remain in good if not a perfect health condition. Here are some tips for good health.

    Exercise regularly

    Performing regular exercise has the most benefits when it comes to maintaining good health. And exercise does not necessarily mean you have to spend hours working your back off at the gym. It can be as simple as taking a leisurely walk every day. Regular exercise has not only great physical health benefits but also emotional benefits. It can reduce the risk of high blood pressure, diabetes, obesity as well as osteoporosis. In addition to that, regular exercise is also known to raise the general mood of an individual leaving one feeling motivated.

    Drink alcohol in moderation

    Crazy as it may sound, alcohol is important for one’s general health. It is true that excessive consumption of alcohol is harmful to one’s health. However, research has shown that moderate consumption of alcohol (a glass of wine a day), is essential in reducing the risk of heart diseases. It is documented that people who do not take alcohol at all have a higher chance of suffering from coronary artery diseases than people who take regulated amount of alcohol.

    Increase the amount of good carbs and fats in your diet

    There are good fats and bad fats. You should increase the intake of good fats and carbs in your diets and eliminate bad fats from your diet. Good fats such as Omega 3 fatty acids and carbs such as whole grains are important for your health as they have been found to reduce the risk of getting some kind of diseases such as cancer and diabetes. On the other hand, bad fats such as saturated fats contain high cholesterol that could result in obesity and even diabetes.

    Drink a lot of water

    It is important to stay properly hydrated especially if you are physically active. Taking plenty of water will not only reduce the toxins in your body that could cause diseases such as cancer, but also keeps your skin soft and glowing. Proper hydration also helps in increasing blood circulation in the body which keeps you alert and active most of the time.

    Stop smoking

    Smoking has no health benefit to humans at all. In fact, if you are a smoker you need to stop smoking as soon as you can. Smoking is responsible for several kinds of illnesses including lung cancer. Recent study findings indicate that smoking reduces the life expectancy of the smoker by about 8years! If you quit smoking you not only improve your health but also extend your life by several years.

    Have regular check ups

    A regular checkup with the doctor is imperative in keeping you in good health. Regular checkups could help in identifying a developing disease that is unknown to you such as cancer. Early detection of such illnesses could prevent you from suffering from their effects which may eventually lead to death. It is therefore important that you be in constant contact with your doctor to ensure you remain in good health.

  • Training Tips to Promote Fat Loss

    Are you looking for habits to promote a healthier lifestyle?  Whether you are new to supplements or have been a faithful supplement consumer, it is important to be aware of how your training can help to promote the healthier lifestyle you are searching to achieve.  Here are a few helpful hints when training for optimal body fat loss.

     Tip #1: Start a regular strength training routine

    Start a strength training routine with a high volume of work, short rest periods (60 seconds or shorter), and moderate to heavy loads using multi-joint exercises. Squats, deadlifts, chin-ups, bench press, lunges, and rows should make up the core of your training. A program that generally includes 8 to 12 reps of more than 3 sets is ideal, however, more sets will accelerate results. Circuit training and super set schemes are also recommended for an extra fat burning burst.

    Aside from the obvious benefit of burning a massive amount of energy quickly, working every muscle group hard, frequently (although not on consecutive days), and at a very high intensity will elevate anabolic hormones that increase fat burning potential.

    Tip #2: Incorporate High Intensity Anaerobic Training (HIAT) into your workout routines

    Research has found that it’s not the quantity but the quality of your workouts that determine success.  So as long as you are giving 100% exertion in your exercise routine, you no longer have to spend 2 hours on the treadmill to achieve the same results (what a time saver!!!)

    A study in the journal Metabolism compared 20 weeks of aerobic training with only 15 weeks of HIAT in which participants did 15 sprints for 30 seconds and lost nine times more body fat than the aerobic group. They also lost 12 percent more visceral belly fat than the aerobic group.  What is so interesting about this study is that the energy cost of the aerobic program over the whole study period was 28,661 calories, whereas for HIAT it was less than half, at 13,614 calories. In less time, the HIAT group lost much more weight—nine times more weight. How do researchers explain it?

    HIAT results in something called post-exercise oxygen consumption (EPOC), in which metabolism is elevated to a significant degree after training—the body is using more energy even though you’re not working out anymore. EPOC is elevated more when anaerobic training is involved—strength training and HIAT can elevate EPOC for as much as 38 hours post-workout.

     Tip #3: Be active every day to increase metabolism and lose fat

    A sedentary lifestyle, even if you are already training at a high volume and intensity, will compromise metabolism and may lead to fat gain. Long periods of inactivity, even a few hours during the day, will lower the body’s glucose tolerance and insulin sensitivity. This puts you at risk for diabetes and poor body composition.

    Take regular brisk walks—even a five to ten minute vigorous walk will make a difference. Try taking a 5-10 minute walk after each meal.  Not only will this aid in digestion but it's an easy way to exercise up to 30 minutes a day. Lastly, avoid the temptation of plopping down in front of the TV or computer for hours after work. Instead, look into a variety of recreational activities that are available in your community (just make sure you pick one you enjoy participating in!)

    Tip #4 - Take your supplements!
