Thanks to the increasing interest in fitness trends like hot yoga, there is a great debate about whether working out in the heat is actually good for your body. While your body will work harder in the heat and therefore produce better results, it can also be dangerous if you aren’t careful about what you’re doing. Let’s look into this a little further.
As summer fades and those post-summer blues start, it can be hard to feel happy about much of anything. The air is cooling and the long nights are fading. Summer gets busy and a lot of people see their fitness routine go by the wayside. There’s nothing wrong with this. If you’re fighting an internal battle about your fitness getting off track, stop right now. You enjoyed your summer, and now you can get back to work on your goals.
If you are planning a holiday, you might be trying to figure out how to factor in your daily fitness routine. Balance is important, and you do deserve a bit of a break. However, the last thing that you want to do is to completely abandon your fitness goals and healthy lifestyle just because you’re on holiday. This can lead to weight gain and other health issues and can make it that much harder to get back on track when you return home.
When spring is fading away and summer is on the horizon, it’s common for people to spend more time outdoors. This might be spent swimming, playing sports, or hiking. People tend to be more active in the warmer months, which is great for the body. While this extra cardio is a good thing, it doesn’t mean you should stop visiting the gym in the summer. There are many benefits to keep that membership going every month of the year.
A holiday is supposed to be a good time. Of course, there are ways to enjoy your holiday and still get your workouts in without feeling like it’s a chore. You should try to do at least a little exercise while you’re on holiday so that it isn’t impossible to get back into once you get home. If you’re considering scrapping the workouts altogether until you get back to town, here are a few reasons to reconsider.
As a college or even secondary school student, you likely have a lot going on during the school year. There is homework to do, essays to write, extracurriculars to attend and that isn’t even to mention eating, sleeping, and getting some entertainment into your schedule. Now that end of term is upon you, you may have a lot more time in your schedule. One of the best ways to fill that time is by starting a fitness routine.
It can be tough to find the right gift for your dad on Father’s Day. He probably already has the newest tech gear he wants and buying clothes can be risky since sizes always vary. You could take him out for dinner, but something that might be even more fun is doing something active together. You can both bond while getting exercise and having a great time to set the stage for a memorable Father’s Day.
When it comes to dominant muscle groups regarding hypertrophy (increase in muscle size), men and women don’t always see eye to eye. One muscle group we can agree on, however, is bigger stronger shoulders.
Back in the day, when I was in school, we were taught to passive stretch prior to any physical activity. These kinds of stretches would involve things like pulling your toes to stretch the hamstrings and holding for a minute. However, in the last 10 years or so, studies have shown this style of stretching to be potentially more harmful than helpful.
