Well this is an athropology question believe it our not. The anwser is based on the design of the human structure and the reason we are currently top of the food chain. Simply you are designed to succeed in exercise. Here is a good video which shows the how "human" became top of the food chain. http://youtu.be/826HMLoiE_o
Fueling up before a workout is just as important as re-fueling after a workout. Many individuals do neither; they workout simply because they want to go eat that Big Mac at McDonalds, that Krispy Kreme Donut with their coffee in the morning or that giant bowl of ice-cream while watching Biggest Loser. While eating these foods on special occasions and in moderation is by no means a horrible thing to do, eating the aforementioned types of food after a workout, or going without eating right after a workout so that you can eat those foods later, is a big mistake.
Well, Fall is here. Here are some guidelines to help you dress for a great workout.* choose what is comfortable that fits well. You don't want to wear something that chaff's, rides up or falls down. No matter how cute the outfit, if it does not fit right and is not comfortable it is not going to help your workout.* proper shoes are vital. Get walking shoes for walking, running shoes for running, basketball shoes for basketball, etc. This ensures you have the proper support where you need it most. Talk to your trainer for what is best for you or your MD.
The old adage that women who are pregnant should kick back with their feet up is certainly outdated. WebMD states, “In the not-so-distant past, women were urged to cut down on or even avoid exercise during pregnancy. Today we know differently. Not only is it OK to participate in fitness activities during pregnancy, doing so can have a positive impact on both baby and mom.” Granted, if you’ve never exercised a day in your life and you become pregnant then suddenly decide to dive in, there are certainly precautions you should take. Of course, talk to you doctor.
