Work out your way to good health

In today's world where you cannot bank upon the quality of any food you eat, exercising daily is the best way to survive a disease. Your fitness is something which you can rely on. Yes it is true. If you take the example of diabetes which was a disease of the old people is no more limited to them, as more and more young people are coming in the grips of this really dreadful disease. You can even find kids suffering from this disease. When this disease is diagnosed in a person, the doctor asks to walk or jog for exercise. Why? Just because exercising is one way to get rid of this disease. Diet is also important but again you cannot rely on the food and everything is adulterated especially in countries like India where corruption has deeper roots than any other country in the world. So what saves you again is proper and routine exercise, lifestyle modification, and nutritious diet. So my friend everything is still in your hands. Just work out your way to good health on your own and wake up before the disease knocks on your doors.

Fashion for women fitness enthusiasts

When we talk about fitness, women are not behind men but when we talk about fashion, men don't even stand in front of women and when this deadly combination, i.e., women, fashion, and fitness gets united, then the result is mindblowing.



Actually according to today's trend, all three words, women, fashion, and fitness have a great meaning for teenagers. If you want to look trendy, you need to be fit and if you are fit, you appeal and fashion suits you. Isn't this great. What do you say?

How many push ups can you do in one breathe?

How many push ups can you do in one go? This was the question we used to ask to each other while in the gym when we were teenagers but I was so glad to hear this question again by a fitness enthusiast of my age in my office. Now I am 32 but still the memories of pumping 150 pushups in 5 go's amaze me a lot. I have tried several times but I am not able to go from more than 35 in one go let it be the busy schedule at the office and writing on my laptop at home or whatever it is but it is true that I need to remember my good old days and start doing all those activities that I used to do. Isn't my story just like you. Oh it's not exactly the same but if you were an old fitness enthusiast and not able to hit the gym now then this must be a coincidence.




So for me I think it is best to maintain body, as inactivity is a disease and always remember those "short bursts of stress to maintain weight" that I told you yesterday. Anyways, this is my push up story, would like to read yours now.

Short bursts of stress help you maintain weight throughout the day

Have you ever imagined that running upstairs in your office when you have got late for the client meeting can help you maintain weight. Yes it is right. In fact each and every short activity where you stress out physically not only help you lose little calories but also helps you develop a good metabolism. Even running between metro stations to catch the train running upstairs and then downstairs help you get rid of extra fat. This is good for people who have no time to hit the gym or go to the park in the morning for walk and exercise.



Although it is not possible for everyone to perform exercises in the office because of less availability of space or time but no one will point you out when you will be running upstairs and downstairs. Just leave the escalators and help yourself maintain a healthy body. I hope you will remember my advice and start doing this on a daily basis to maintain weight.

Home Gym Workout schedule

So you don’t have time to go to a gym and bought a home gym for yourself. Now what? What you will do with your home gym, just start doing any type of exercise or do you have a schedule. This is where the hub page I am going to write today will help. You know bodybuilding is all about discipline and a schedule. Every great bodybuilder follows a schedule as without a schedule you reach nowhere. So below you can find the best workout schedule for your home gym:



MONDAY

Chest:

-Pushups with handles: 2 sets of max reps each

-Flat bench press 3 sets 8 to 10 reps each (starting weight 70kg)

Last set 2 reps with very heavy weight (like 90 kg)

-Cable cross flyes: 3 sets of 8 to 10 reps each



Back:

-Pullups/chinups: 3 sets of max each

-Lat pulldowns: 3 sets of 8 to 10 reps each



TUESDAY

Biceps:

-Barbell curls: 2 sets of 8 reps and last set of <8 with heavy weight and cheating

-Preacher curls: 3 sets of 8 reps each

-Street curls (using body weight): 3 sets of 8-10 reps each



Forearms:

WEDNESDAY

SATURDAY

Chest

&

Shoulder:

Seated barbell press: 3 sets of 10 reps each

Lateral deltoid raises: 3 sets of 10 each



SUNDAY

Rest we should give at least 3 days rest to our body for recovery and relaxing i.e. 48 hours gap for the repetition of every exercise. Less and smart workouts show better and fast results. If you look at the previous schedule I published and the above both of them follow the same rule, i.e., NEVER overwork the muscle. You would not get the desired response if you overwork. Sometimes, the muscle may never grow later on or else you can get serious injuries like tendonitis, etc. So give rest of 48 hours for the muscle you have just done today.



So above was the home gym workout schedule. I hope you have found it easy to read and simple enough to follow throughout this month. Happy bodybuilding…
