    Back at it!

    Hi! I just completed my first run on this app and I’m super excited to work hard and stick with it! I am a former collegiate athlete and am not too happy with how I’ve let myself get this far out of shape the last few years. Enough is enough and though it isn’t my immediate goal to get back into my college playing shape, it would be nice to be able to go through drills and explain things to the high school team I’m coaching without being super winded or sore afterward I’m also getting married next summer so I’d like to be comfortable with how I look and feel way before and way after the big day. I’d like to not look back at my photos and wonder what the heck happened to me!  Anyway, I’m pretty pumped to be in this community and I wish everyone the best of luck with your goals too! We got this!

    Returning to Fitness

    Hi Everyone, I have really slacked off of fitness the last 3 years. I have ran a couple of half marathons, numerous 5K and 10K’s, worked out in the gym, and have had a few trainers. I just haven’t been able to get my interest in it again. I miss not being as fit. I am hoping joining this forum and reading your road blocks and successes will reve me up again! The pictures below were taken 2012-2016.
  5. Suggest some essential nutrients for muscle building.
  6. Fat loss in the body can take a shorter or longer period depending on the individual. However, burning or loss of fat can take a very short period of time if proper diet is taken into consideration. Processed foods or refined sugars must be ignored and replaced with acceptable fats, protein and vegetables. Fibers and antioxidants should also be taken into consideration due to their ease of proper digestion and regulation of sugar in the blood. Observing the proposed meal plan would erase fear of regaining weight after loss if taken judiciously. Before we proceed let’s discuss some suitable food source for fat loss in the body.

    Hello Iam James

    I am the Professional Fitness Trainer in Ottawa fitness training Studio ( AP Fitness).
  22. 1. Get the proper braces Wear knee braces to reduce the risk of injury during exercise. Braces provide extra support to the knee ligaments. Particularly if you are playing a collision sport (football, lacrosse, hockey, rugby), knee braces have been shown to reduce the risk of knee injury. Players of contact sports (basketball, soccer) and sports that requires rapid changes of direction (tennis) may also benefit, as many people engaged in activities that pose a significant risk of knee injury, such as skiing. Go to Kmaxsports.com and choose the right brace for yourselves. 2. Warm up before exercise A warm up prepares your body for physical activity, thereby both reducing the chance of injury and improving performance. Generally speaking, the less frequently you exercise, the longer you will need to warm up. Some good warm ups include: Starting slow — If you are doing an aerobic activity like walking, swimming, or biking, start slowly for five to 10 minutes, then gradually ramp up to full speed. Step-ups — Step up onto a small stool or stairs, lifting your body with one leg. Step back down with the same leg. Do 10–15 step-ups per leg. Hamstring curls — Lie flat on your stomach and bend one leg so your heel moves towards your buttocks. Repeat 10–15 times per leg. Straight-leg lifts — Lie on your back with one leg bent so your foot is flat on the floor. Keeping your other leg straight, lift it until it is perpendicular to your body. Repeat 10–15 times for each leg. 3. Create an exercise regimen that builds gradually. Doing so will allow your body to reach its peak slowly. If you don't allow this progression, your knee- joint will be forced to bear the brunt of a strenuous workout without warning your body first. This will cause stress on your joints.

  25. In a world where there is an increasing awareness of fitness and the importance of workout in staying healthy, some people are naturally over the top. We have created terms like ‘gym rats’, those special breed of people who are always at the gym come rain, come shine. They are the gym mirrors, permanent fixtures at the gym, showing us their muscles and espousing the gospel of workout. However, very few fitness enthusiasts talk about the importance of rest. During workout, the human body needs to take some time off to rest and recover from the tears inflicted on the muscles by lifting weights. Recovery includes but is not limited to hydration, stretching and so on. In as much as we like to imagine the human body as strong and capable of adapting to anything, and while this is true, the body needs time to adapt to the stress and exertion caused by exercise. Ironically, no matter how much work you put in at the gym, the real rewards of your efforts only begin to take place when your body is at rest. There are generally two broad divisions of recovery – the short term recovery, and the long term recovery. The short term recovery is generally the kind which comes after a particularly rigorous workout session. The long term recovery is favoured by professional athletes who take time off their workout regimes at periods within the year to fully recover. An example of a well regulated weekly casual exercise routine is a 30-minute daily workout session from Monday to Friday with a recovery break from Saturday to Sunday. New age fitness enthusiasts have championed the concept of active recovery – a process where following an intense workout, a person engages in light exercise as opposed to total rest. Rest and recovery are critical components of any effective fitness regimen, as well as structuring and sticking to a diet which will also help the body to maximize blood flow and recover quickly. Post exercise meals make the difference between getting results or not – this is because the human body synthesizes proteins during workouts and these proteins must be replenished. The pre-exercise meal must also not be under emphasized, eating poorly can drastically affect performance and prevent optimum performance. Hydration too is as important as diet in recovery. It involves replenishing the body with fluids, many of which are lost during workouts. Water works a real treat for fitness enthusiasts and athletes. There is simply no such thing as having too much water! It must also be mentioned that sleep is a crucial part of any fitness regimen and six to seven hours of sleep daily surely gives your body a boost. If you are going to be hitting the gym hard during the week, you best be hitting your mattress hard during the weekend for some heavy duty rest. Sleep deprivation is harmful to people who spend long hours working out as it has the long term effect of affecting the body’s hormonal balance. Just like most of us, we understand the importance of rest to high performance but sometimes we cannot help but feel a pang of guilt whenever we take a day off. Alright fitness enthusiasts, go into the gym, get out and be sure you do not forget to recover! http://www.slimfitu.com/fitness/all-workout-and-no-rest-the-place-of-rest-in-fitness/
