When designing your training program, I suggest sitting back and analyzing WHY you are training? This is important as it should dictate HOW you train. The obvious example is for someone training for a marathon.
i'm not going to leave you in suspense. It's the warm up. It's often the most neglected part of anybody's training routine. The purpose of the warm up is too take the blood which is surrounding your vital organs and push it to your extremities, being your arms and legs. No 5 minutes on the treadmill doesn't count. Another purpose of the warm is too strengthen our weakness/muscle imbalances.
With the New Year having just passed, the January rush at gyms and fitness centers has commenced. It’s always a wonder why, come February, these new gymgoers empty back out even though their credit cards are still being charged $19.99 per month, month after month after month…
If man makes it, don't eat it. This is your challenge. Can you do it? You want to eat only whole foods and eliminate all processed foods, even good ones, for the week. This includes beads, most salad dressings, all cereals, luncheon meats, cheese, dried fruits, anything with preservatives, and alcoholic beverages. Your diet should include whole foods such as fruit, raw or steamed veggies, meat, natural whole-grain rice, poached eggs, etc. if y ou have been following a healthy eating plan, this will still likely be hard, but shouldn't shock your system.
Fight sitting disease. For the next week, convert one of your meetings to a walking meeting and let the ideas flow with each step. Too much sitting negatively impacts the body’s metabolic system and may increase your risk of heart disease, type 2 diabetes and certain cancers (breast and colon).
Regular exercise is important for everybody, regardless of age. Health benefits of regular exercise include increased muscle mass (helps to maintain a healthy metabolism because you burn calories more efficiently), stronger bones (decreases the chances of receiving osteoarthritis). Other benefits include reduced stress, and improved sleep and mood.
