Cellulite holds the palm of danger for women

The confusing messages from the media and "cosmetic", linked to the market of creams and concoctions of self-proclaimed witches, generated superficiality and approximation in the field. We could compare the most treatments, with a coat of paint on a wall of humidity: certainly the appearance of the wall will look better, but the task remains the remediation of the wall to do to be healthy, rather than seem so ... "

Cellulite is a disease itself, the name "technical" and dermis-hypodermis. It is therefore an alteration that affects:

The subcutaneous fat

Edematous characteristics (accumulation of fluids outside the vessels)

Fibrosis (increase in reticular fibers)

Sclerosis (increased elastic fibers and scar tissue)

In practice, vessels are not able to carry oxygenated blood to tissues and to clean up toxic substances: pain resulting in stages of cells and a modification of the tissues lose their elastic properties and trophism.

The gym will cover treatment in a speech on the so-called tertiary or aggravating factors. These are all factors that may promote or aggravate a state of cellulite, through metabolic and circulatory mechanisms. Among these predisposing factors is important to focus the intervention on the recovery of:

  1. Poor muscular component, which involves:
  2. Failure of the muscular pump
  3. Low tone of the buttock, resulting in tissue collapse - that the fascial covering and alteration of the local micro-circulation (the classic "small holes" visible in the standing position)

Postural defects, namely:

  1. Work in preventive strengthening the abdominal muscles, and trochanteric areas

  1. Defects in the support foot.

And it is precisely this last point we will focus, as is one of the latest risen to prominence (in fact not invented anything new)

It is not wrong to say that preventing the disease cellulite starts from the foot. The good dynamic operation of the foot is the most important operational secrecy lymph system - veins of the legs.

The foot is divided into forefoot, and hindfoot from cd lines of Chopart and Lisfranc joint, which indicates the areas where surgeons amputate.

The forefoot has a propulsive function, the action takes place cushioning, the heel of the body receives the load at each impact with the ground and for distribution through the sub-talar joint, the heel and foot.

The problem of the lower limbs is not using the push button directly to a pump like the heart, but the foot has the facilities to facilitate the return of lymphatic - venous

Venous Lejars: squeezing dynamics of this structure favors the action of muscle pump and thus the return of blood to the districts high school. However, this is a "bed" of tiny capillaries that contains a small amount of blood.

Triangle face: in the deepest part of the foot, consisting of internal longitudinal, Transverse and longitudinal external. This structure contains the most important deep veins: internal and external plantar veins. The pressing of these veins (as well as significant movement in this area) represents the true heart and the most important peripheral vascular function of the foot.

Always keeping in mind the importance of a preventive recall work on all muscles and joints and ankle Sub - talus to compensate for any imbalance between "rods" of muscles.

We refer to the attitudes of eversion (support outside) and reverse (backing on the inside) of the foot where there is a prevalence of peroneal muscles exerted by the long, short, third and extensor digitorum longus and triceps surae in the first case, anterior and posterior tibial and flexor in the second.

Problems of this type cause an irregular or partial squeezing of the venous structures above - mentioned and the onset of phenomena of stagnation lymph system - veins of the legs.

The female bodybuilders are on the edge of the woman universe?

Before all else we want to explain the reason for this dialogue. It is not an interview, not a debate, not a training program and not even a competition, since this would be necessary for a stage race. It is a conversation between two agonists bodybuilding, between two friends, including two women. Each of us has experienced a decade of training, dedication, and frequently with people (women and men), the joys and sorrows of bodybuilding. This is what matters, not whether we can "claim" even licenses competitions. We carried out the interview on dual lines: a kind of biography, a bibliography. We wanted to comment and confirm or even cutting off according to our experience, certain claims set forth in psychological studies on the personality of the woman athlete.

I told you that he decided the agony when you view muscled like those who competed in regional and national context. Also I have decided after watching a Grand Prix and a regional in 1991, in those years the female line was called "soft" and followed the criteria of femininity and tone, avoiding muscularity. I often asked the reasons that push the agony. Definitely the photos of Ms. Olympia Cory Everson and athletes like Rachel Mc Lish have influenced the decision to train and modify our appearance. Their bodies felt desirable legs and buttocks. I think those are the parts that every girl can definitely inferior to a bodybuilder. While appreciating the muscles of the chest must have already developed the aesthetic taste for bodybuilding "hard". Instead we decided to race under the stimulus of competitive fees within easy reach and after the example of girls whose commitment has lasted just one season as if they had made the race a bit 'as a joke and a bit' to bet. In short, we were inspired by high models but then we decided because it was easy getting out there.

Certainly in the second half of the eighties and early nineties the athletes were less muscular and had a very blurred definition of what we have now on the stage of the race. Spectator competitions that time, we were like you and I was thrilled to see a toned body, balanced, dry and muscular at the right point. There he was taking empathy and emulation.

In fact we have not had the patience or perhaps the courage to stick to those fees, which have since become anachronistic. Many athletes from that period that we know or have withdrawn (voluntarily or after the fiasco) or have opted for fitness. Cultures in many countries are few, even less when you consider the desertion to fitness. Seem to me that we did like that dog in London that followed the wolves howling wolf and became him well. I do not know if that progress towards greater muscularity and definition has been a sort of evolution of our sport (caused by athletes who are preparing more professional) or has been determined by a federal choice. In any case I like to follow. I realize that the physical fitness required more muscular and defined now involves greater sacrifices in training and nutrition, a position in front of the doping, a review of the concept and acceptance of self. Do not be surprised if a few women are willing to follow this path. When I was a trainer in the gym alongside the students recognize that my way of race and the sacrifices made to obtain it were an exaggeration, but with much less, could reach those results too recognize that beauty, as desired. Bodybuilding women may still have adherents in the form of fitness, but we are now talking of agony, and it is the women in competitive bodybuilding, which is suffering. I do not think that has helped the woman as a person entering fitness competitions, rather served the public of the most popular commercial product: a woman who meets the needs and expectations of a historical and cultural, not too muscular, sensual and intriguing, beautiful, but not too clever and athletic, dancer and in evening dress and high heels! I do not think evolution, and since I'm in the middle (ie in relation to fitness and hard I'm not this or that) for the sake of respecting the woman as a person, I give my full support to hard: they represent stronger affirmation of femininity seen in the last 20 years. The message that sport should be given to women is to have the courage to be what they want, like people said: "I want to be an inspiration for all women, not necessarily as a bodybuilder, but they may find the courage to come out to be what they want to be.

We have seen a real selection. With the evolution of the sport, driven mostly by the American model, has been a real split: on one hand there is the bodybuilding practiced exclusively in terms of aesthetics and the other based on the standard bodybuilding in the literal sense of the word, practice for a proper muscle development. For me it was bodybuilding's true! Bodybuilding is a sport with a sexual nature by default (as, once reserved for women synchronized swimming or boxing reserved for men.) Admit two types of bodybuilding seems to corroborate the stereotype that women are driven by the pursuit of aesthetic sense while the man tries to reaffirm his masculinity by means of force. Intrusions in the area of each other are seen as deviations. A woman who is keen to develop their muscles in the eyes of the people is not a man, an "androgynous." Usually we women bodybuilders are stamped "hermaphrodite" but first this term is used by most people do not know its exact meaning, and secondly, it is said that a woman athlete physically it is also psychologically androgynous (and vice versa) . On page 132 of the book we are reading is the definition of androgyny: "The androgyny is the coexistence in the same individual (man or woman) peculiarities of cultural psychology attributed to males and females." To understand the definition and stress that looks and androgynous personality may belong equally to a man or a woman, just think that a ballet dancer is androgynous in the same way as a Ms. Olympia.

Now that we have clarified the exact meaning of androgyny, we can say that is not an offensive term. apparent fact a woman "androgynous" assessed in a positive and a bearer of psychological emancipation compared to traditional roles. Would use the word "androgynous" to describe yourself?

Yes, because inside me coexist features such as sensitivity and aesthetic sense (typically female) and how the determination and willpower (historical and cultural characteristics attributed solely to the male sex). Only after starting bodybuilding determination and strength of will revealed the predominant than the woman who does not sport. Talking with other women, not a bodybuilder, I realize that I have less fear and hesitation in dealing with everyday problems that is particularly difficult circumstances.

Actually for me the qualities that I developed in training and agony I used to deal with studies with more force to study and demonstrate that sports are not irreconcilable. Charged with the loss exceeds the sum of the results and satisfaction which would if they were addressed separately in two different stages of life.

I recall that in 1991 in one month I faced twenty non-university exams with relative position, enabling the two competitions for teaching in the school and three races at the national level bodybuilding (and the latter took place only at distances of a week of each other).

The bodybuilding undoubtedly gives us the edge over to face life, gives us strength and inner awareness that has nothing to do with the look and body except in the sense that this is only the material result. I feel safe for the inner strength that has given me practice this sport and not for the armor of muscle that I built. That is not love a show outside of the gym and the stages of the race, my appearance. But doing something that makes me happy and gives me a way to express myself allows me to feel better with others, to be less frustrated and more sociable.

Contrary to popular belief, the bodybuilding socialization. Many times I have seen timid boys enter the gym for the first time and after a few months open genially with all other patrons. Many times the relationships that are born on the "battlefield" grow outside. Unfortunately, the bodybuilder types are considered unfriendly, surly, or simply to avoid a bunch of clowns because of some "black sheep" running show of clothing specifically for training, but ridiculous in the street.

As we have said we do well, women rarely flaunt their muscles outside the sporting context. Yet even they are injured, perhaps even more vehemently than they do to men, as if to yell to be out of fees set. One symptom of intolerance are already serious verbal exclamations and before the eyes insistent that they want you to believe a diverted. There are many prejudices that run and the surprising thing is that people will slam you in the face without shame and rudeness. I think that no bodybuilder agonist has been fortunate to be able to maintain outside of jokes about an alleged use of doping or an alleged loss of femininity, every bodybuilder is apostrophe as bloated and too big and flabby, while those same people would understand to be the big rude if he had the courage to say to an obese person. The fat gives less trouble to us, nobody will blame everyone and compassion. After all, she is not there to remind them what they do not have the courage to be. It seems that in the eyes of the people we are in contravention of a rule and we deserve to be mocked. But where was written this rule? And what kind of standard is? I do not worry if I tell other women with education and respect do not want similar. But, for me and for you and for all bodybuilders, it never happens that they do so politely and respectfully. Basically everyone should have the freedom to be himself, even a woman.

An illustrated guide to get strong and defined abs?

Feedback on various returning visitors to my blog on bodybuilding, I found a recurring question about “What to do to show strong and defined abs?” This information is available in several articles I have written before, but then also I will summarize the general guidelines stating that everyone should adapt according to their conditions.

Training the middle area included within a comprehensive program of exercises is part of what must be done, depending on which exercises you have included in your routine, you are getting strength, muscle tone, or volume.

Most people doing a sport or training in the gym have sufficient strength and volume in the abdominal muscles, but the problem is that they remain hidden under a thin or thick layer of fat, so showing off that six pack of squares or abdomen requires some more to it.

Food is fundamental to maintain optimum body fat level, as is very true the saying that "we are what we eat” but we cannot take this statement literally. Anyone could assume that if I eat a little low fat, my muscles will be defined accordingly, but you should know that the human body is designed in a way that at times of shortage of food, it slows the energy in the body and fat ensures to provide sufficient energy in time.

This natural survival system works in everyone. If you eat few foods to keep your body in some form of fat, a part of the energy is obtained. Of course, if the deficiency is sustained over time, then it makes use of the reserves consumed first the fastest sources of energy, i.e., muscle tissue and then burn the stored fat.

At this point, the individual becomes malnourished and it leads to significant deficiencies that affect the normal functioning of organs and systems and also being prone to illnesses and serious physical impairments. This reality is clearly seen in people suffering from anorexia and/or bulimia.

A proper diet supplemented by exercise are the pillars for a strong middle zone defined muscles and mark the desired flat tummy that many want to look at the beach during the summer.

Do not just follow the fad diet to achieve, most of these diets are restrictive and when the well-known case rebound, if you lose 2 or 10 kilos then recover extremely easy and even more are finished even though will be coaching.

No need to "starving" and will have enough to eat and often to allow the body to burn stored fat, it seems a contradiction but it is not, success is achieved as how to structure the food.

I say some, and enjoy! I have resolved to eat a lot and especially when I please, before such force is better to stop and think a little, every one has to evaluate his physical condition, if you have more stored fat as ordinary people will be relatively easy to adjust your diet to lose the excess, if you are obese or predisposed to be, then in this situation, you may require the advice of a nutritionist or a good diet doctor.

By controlling what we eat, we speed up the metabolism to use more energy than consumed, making 5 to 7 meals a day is a way to achieve this. Do not misinterpret this statement, these meals should be small portions and together provide the nutrients necessary for the proper functioning of the body without providing excess energy.

This guide can help to be sure to include the required nutrients but common sense is usually sufficient in food because you should not miss both animal proteins and vegetable, complex carbohydrates, fiber, low fat and low salt, not to mention drink lots of water all day to keep hydrated.

Combining a diet with 4 to 7 servings a day can be really difficult when you are in the office or in the workplace, not to mention those who travel frequently or are under heavy working conditions. Without going into details of how everyone can make it, here are some suggestions:

What should I eat in breakfast?

Breakfast is the first meal after several hours without providing food to the body, is essential to make this food every day, should be nutritious enough energy contributing to the new day. Include in your breakfast, quality protein like eggs or tuna, along with carbohydrates that you can get two slices of bread (also provides fiber) along with some fruit jam, fruit juice without sugar, and some coffee with sugar. Try combinations containing oatmeal, as it is a complete food you should have in your daily diet.

What should I eat in lunch?

The lunch should include low fat, low salt, grilled chicken over salad greens with some boiled rice, not have to eat the same thing, looking for combinations that provide nutrients and low in calories: a piece of grilled lean meat with potatoes steamed over tomato and lettuce salad, also you can make a dish of lentils, or turkey, baked fish for protein. Carbohydrates come from foods without starches, so avoid flour, sweets, desserts and pastries in general.

What should I eat in dinner?

At dinner again include some protein and few carbohydrates. This is food that you do before bedtime. A tuna salad greens and maybe a potato to steam vegetables with some meat, but soy protein prepared salad combinations depend on your tastes.

The other meals to complete the suggested four to seven can occur in several ways. At midmorning, a fruit (apple, pear, peach, banana, etc.) or a protein bar, mid-afternoon a protein shake in water, before training a handful of nuts, after training with another protein shake a banana. These are for the most practical alternatives that you can combine with your tastes and activities.

When you cannot make a breakfast with the feet under the table, opt for a smoothie or a meal replacement ready to mix with water only. Do not do this in routine, any preparations of this type can permanently replace a good meal with natural products.

The idea is to eat well, correcting habits of diet to something healthy and enjoyable. If you do not like oats, do not push yourself to take it, but not replace it with a cheesecake. If you do not like beans or lentils test creams make these vegetables and not a substitute for a pizza with extra cheese and pepperoni.

If you do not have time for lunch, but you should have it, nothing happens as long as the condition is not daily, even more important at all times must be you take care of eating well, drink enough water during the day and train properly.

In summary, a balanced diet low in calories distributed in 4 to 7 servings a day, accompanied with proper training over hydration will give you the opportunity to look smooth musculature which includes a markedly flat abdomen.
