Alcohol And Exercise

alcohol and exerciseAt the end of the work week, you’re probably thinking about hitting the bar with a couple of buddies to wind down .  Even though you  may think you deserve to go out and have a few drinks, there are some things that you should certainly keep in mind.

Like any other day, tomorrow is going to be a day for exercise for fat loss, and since you are exercising on a regular basis, a few drinks of alcohol won’t really hurt anything, right?  Before you decide to rush out to the local bar, there are a few things below that you should think about before you make your choice about going out to drink some alcohol.

Research has proven that even small amounts of alcohol will increase muscular endurance and the output of strength, although these types of benefits are very short lived.  After 20 minutes or so, the problems will begin to surface.  All of the negative side effects attached to alcohol will easily outweigh any possible benefits that it can have. 

No matter how you look at it, alcohol is a poison that can really harm your body if you aren’t careful.

Consuming alcohol negatively affects your body’s strength, endurance, aerobic capacity and even muscle growth .  Alcohol will also have an effect on your nervous system and brain.  If you use it long term, you can cause severe deterioration of your central nervous system.   Even with short term use, nerve muscle interaction can be reduced which will result in a loss of strength.  Continue reading Alcohol And Exercise

Burning Off Fat, Faster – The Correlation Between The Psychological And The Physical

Lose Fat for Vibrant HealthSince time immemorable, the proper technique for fast weight loss has always been an important issue with people who have to lose some unwanted fats. There are a number of ways this can be done, but basically there’s two approaches to this. First is the “crash-burn” method and next is the ‘speedy burn’ technique.

The first method would seem to many as a logical technique to achieve fat burning immediately. You exercise heavily to burn off the fats then you greatly lessen your food intake so even less fats would get into the body. Sounds reasonable enough. However, you also need to consider what they call as the mind-body connection in psychology.

Experts in this field say that the body has sensors and indicators that can detect and recognize when the body is under attack or in distress.

Jump Into A Pilates Class

Woman doing pilates for vibrant healthThere is certainly a lot of talk within the fitness world about core-conditioning. Our core is what gives us the capability to walk, run, jump and just about everything else a individual is capable to do physically. Anyone seeking to jump on the bandwagon need to seek out a pilates class for among the most invigorating and extremely possibly — the most exhausting training you’ve had in awhile.

There’s no real accurate data as to just how many individuals have undergone a pilates class here in North America, but it’s estimated that there are close to 14 million regular participants.

Mind and Body

Pilates focuses on making your torso powerful, so your “core” is capable to handle everything you throw at it in day-to-day life. Nevertheless, the mind and body connection is stressed also, as the stronger the pathways from your brain to your muscles is: The much better you feel overall.  Continue reading Jump Into A Pilates Class

A Basic Senior Bodybuilding Routine

A senior doing pushups for vibrant healthThe key to any senior bodybuilding regimen would be to not overdo it.  It’s easy to fall into the trap of feeling like a young, viral 18 year old, but as a person’s body ages we start to slow down.  This isn’t any reason to avoid cardiovascular exercise or senior bodybuilding routines, but rather a reminder to take things a bit slower than you would have a few years ago.

As we age, our metabolism slows down and sometimes our digestive system has to function harder to keep everything moving.  Working your fingers to the bone at the gym, then eating like a horse to build muscle doesn’t perform as efficiently as men and women creep past middle age. After age 50, testosterone isn’t nearly as abundant, which means overdoing it (when doing senior bodybuilding) is a lot more likely to lead to injury, rather than better fitness

How You Should Get Started

Starting a program geared toward senior bodybuilding needs is the ideal method to prevent injury.  Beginning with a couple of simple exercises, spread out over the course of the week is ideal.   Continue reading A Basic Senior Bodybuilding Routine

Antioxidants – Are You Rusting?

Rusted up tin manThe Tin Man in the Wizard of Oz rusted up due to oxidation.  We’re suffering much worse damage due to oxidative stress, and it’ll take more than an oil can to fix it!

Oxygen is essential for life, but it can create damaging by-products during normal cellular metabolism.  These by-products are called free radicals

Although the process of oxidation is necessary, it leaves behind free radicals, oxidized molecules that are missing electrons.  These molecules are unstable and agitated.  They remain unstable until they capture new electrons to replace the missing ones.  They roam throughout our bodies stealing electrons from our cells, even our most vital ones like  electron-rich DNA.

When free radicals pull electrons out of our DNA it can no longer function properly.  DNA stores our genetic information and controls the reproduction of all new cells, including the cells of our organs, heart, brain and other tissues which are critical to our health.  Continue reading Antioxidants – Are You Rusting?
