10 Top Fitness Tips of All Time Just Arrived - 10 Top Fitness Tips Everyone Should Know to have a healthy life
The Essentials You Need for Replenishing Your Lost Nutrients and Energy

 

It should come as no surprise that losing weight and getting fit are nearly always among the top 10 New Year’s resolutions that Americans make every year. They’re goals that the majority of us strive toward, but precious few actually reach …

Why?

 

Perhaps it’s because most people think getting fit means spending grueling hours at the gym, forcing yourself to sweat through boring, exhausting workouts. This belief can make you give up before you ever get started …

 

In reality, you can probably get in shape much quicker than you ever thought possible, and have more fun doing it, by learning the top fitness tips below. And once you’re “in” on these secrets, do your friends a favor and share them!

 

10 Top Fitness Tips Everyone Should Know

 

  1.  Work Your Core

 

The core muscles of your abdomen, back and pelvis help you maintain balance and stability, help protect your back from injuries, and make it easier to keep proper posture. Exercises like the plank or the bridge are excellent for working your core, as are yoga and Pilates techniques.

 

  1. Create Instability

 

Anytime you work out on an uneven surface, it will automatically cause your core muscles to work harder. This can be as simple as jogging on a beach, holding a free weight in just one hand at a time, or using a BOSU ball (half of an exercise ball with a platform on one side and a rounded ball on the other) to perform your exercises.

 

  1. Do Squats

 

Squats are excellent for working out your lower body, but because they are so intense they can also help to burn fat and promote muscle-building body-wide. As you build more muscle, your body will also naturally burn more calories, too.

 

  1. Give Free Weights a Try

 

Weights machines have their place, but they don’t give you the freedom of movement that free weights provide. When doing strength-training exercises with free weights, you can get a more dynamic, comprehensive workout, working muscles that the machines may miss.

 

  1. Do Push-Ups

 

Push-ups are deceptively simple, working not only your upper body but also your core muscles and abs. You can kick your push-up intensity up a notch by putting your hands on an exercise ball, elevating your feet, holding one leg extended in the air, or changing up the placement of your hands.

 

  1. Ditch Your Long Cardio Workouts for Shorter Interval Training Sessions

 

Did you know that people who exercised for 30 minutes daily for 13 weeks lost more weight than those who exercised for an hour daily?

 

It’s becoming clear that shorter bursts of intense exercise can help you burn calories and fat faster than long, steady activity. In fact, men were able to burn up to 220 calories by riding an exercise bike for 25 minutes … but only 2.5 minutes of that time was vigorous exercise! (The study participants warmed up for a couple of minutes, then pedaled as fast and as hard as they could for 30 seconds. This was followed by a four-minute recovery period. The combo was then repeated five more times.)

 

If you want to give this a try, check out the No Excuse Workout, which is exactly 4 minutes long, broken down into 8 specific sets. Each set lasts for 30 seconds – 20 seconds of intense exercise, and 10 seconds of rest.

 

  1. Exercise Backward

 

Walking, jogging or even using an elliptical machine backwards instead of forwards helps to work out different muscles in your legs and puts less strain on your knee joints (making it ideal if you have a knee injury).

 

It’s also a more intense workout than traditional forward walking/jogging, which means you may burn more fat and calories in less time. Research suggests you can burn body fat and improve your cardiorespiratory fitness with backward walking and running.

 

As a bonus, backward exercise works out your brain too, and may help you to improve your thinking skills and cognitive control.

 

  1. Swap Static Stretching for Dynamic Stretching

 

Static stretching (such as bending down to touch your toes like you did in gym class) does not appear to have an impact on injury prevention, and in some cases may make physical performance worse (especially if the stretch is held for longer than a minute).

 

Dynamic stretching, which mimics the exercise you’re planning to do (such as walking lunges), appears to be much more effective at helping you to improve performance and agility.

 

  1. Refuel After Your Workout … With Chocolate Milk

 

It’s important to give your body the proper nutrition in the 30 minutes after your workout, and research suggests chocolate milk, with its blend of protein, fat and carbs, can be an ideal recovery drink.

 

Those who drank chocolate milk after a vigorous workout built more muscles, lost more fat and improved their aerobic power more than those who drank a carbohydrate-only drink.

 

NOTE: There is ongoing controversy as to whether the health benefits of milk outweigh its drawbacks; you “own” your health, no one else, so if this is of concern to you I urge you to continue to educate yourself on this topic and make the choices best for you

 

  1. Promote Healthy Muscle Repair Post-Workout

 

It is crucial that you give your body proper time for rest and recovery between workouts so your muscles have a chance to repair. Over-exercising can lead to muscle breakdown instead of muscle building, which you obviously want to avoid.

 

To help your muscles with their repair process, take Heal-n-Soothe as a regular part of your post-workout recovery. With a concentrated dose of proteolytic enzymes that eat excess fibrin and scar tissue, Heal-n-Soothe can help muscle tears and strains to heal properly while reducing inflammation, tightness and post-workout pain.

 

The number of proteolytic enzymes your body creates drops sharply around age 27. Less proteolytic enzymes available mean excess fibrin and internal scar tissue builds up around both major and minor injuries, reducing muscle flexibility, increasing stress on muscles and joints, and perpetuating the cycle of painful inflammatory post-workout effects.

 

Replenishing your body’s supply of natural proteolytic enzymes with Heal-n-Soothe, which also contains 12 of nature’s BEST anti-inflammatory compounds — including pineapple bromelain, tumeric, ginger extract, and Mojave Yucca — is an essential addition to your optimal post-workout routine.

In the US, the most popular fruits (in order) are bananas, apples, oranges, grapes and strawberries. These certainly have merit – for taste and nutrition – but there’s a whole world out there … and in it quite a few exotic fruits that you might not have heard of. If you’re looking for a delicious, nutritious and exotic treat, try these 7 absolutely healthy fruits.

 

  1. Cupuacu

 

Native to South America, cupuacu is a melon-like fruit that’s been a staple food for rainforest natives for centuries. It’s now considered a delicacy in many larger cities, like Rio.

 

When you split open a cupuacu, you’ll find a creamy pulp inside that’s used to make juice, smoothies, jam and even ice cream. Its flavor is probably unlike anything you’ve ever tasted – a mixture of chocolate, banana, pineapple, pear and passion fruit.

 

As a member of the theobrama family (like cocoa), cupuacu is rich in antioxidants and other phytonutrients. It is known for having caffeine-like effects, i.e. enhancing energy, even though it contains no caffeine.

 

It also contains B vitamins, vitamins A and C, calcium, selenium and fiber, and is said to support immune system health, healthy skin and hair, and even improved libido. Many in the Amazon reportedly refer to cupuacu as “the pharmacy in a fruit” because of its many health benefits.

 

  1. Durian

 

Crack open the thorny ‘shell’ of a durian and you’ll find a custardy yellow-white flesh inside (this is the edible part). These large fruits, native to Malaysia and Indonesia, are known as the “king of fruit” because of their impressive appearance, although you’ll either love it or hate it.

 

Durians have a strong odor … some describe it as rotten onions or dirty socks (it’s so strong that durians are banned from Singapore subways).Still, many love its sweet almond-like flavor, and if you’re among them you’ll gain many benefits.

 

Durians are rich in antioxidants; one study found them to be higher in antioxidants than mangosteen (see below), lychee and mango. They’re also one of the only fruits that are an excellent source of healthy fats (like avocado), and they also contain fiber, potassium, B vitamins and tryptophan.

 

  1. Mangosteen

 

If you’re able to get past its hard purple shell and cut one open, the inside of a mangosteen (pictured) is filled with citrusy, peachy, mango-flavored flesh separated in segments.

 

(Each fruit has small petals on its base, which correspond with the number of segments inside.) Use a small spoon or fork to scoop the white flesh, rather than eating it whole, as sometimes there is a hard bit inside.

 

The mangosteen rind (which is often incorporated into mangosteen juice) is rich in xanthones, which have antioxidant, anti- tumor, anti-allergic, anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, and anti-viral activities.

 

Mangosteen flesh is also full of antioxidants like vitamin C and may even contain cancer-fighting compounds. Mangosteens are native to Southeast Asia.

 

  1. Jabuticaba

 

Jabuticaba is a grape-like fruit native to South America. The fruits grow right from the trunk of the tree, and, like grapes, are used to make wine and jams (they’re also eaten fresh).

 

Jabuticaba is thought to contain many of the same beneficial properties as grapes and cranberries, including anti-aging, anti-inflammatory and antioxidant effects. They also contain jaboticabin, a recently discovered type of antioxidant.

 

  1. Rambutan

 

The rambutan is another Southeast Asian fruit that’s rich in antioxidants, including vitamin C, and copper. The outside rind has long hair-like tendrils, which is peeled away to reveal a sweet-sour grape-like flesh.

 

  1. Cherimoya

 

This South American fruit is green on the outside with a white, creamy flesh filled with black seeds. Only the white flesh is edible, and it was described by Mark Twain as “the most delicious fruit known to men.”

 

Cherimoya has a flavor similar to strawberries, bananas, pineapple and coconut. It’s rich in fiber, potassium, vitamin C and B vitamins.

 

Cherimoya has traditionally been used for anxiety relief, and one study found it “produces an antidepressant-like action” and may have “therapeutic potency as an antidepressant agent.”

 

  1. Ackee

 

Although native to West Africa, the ackee is cultivated in Jamaica, where it’s the national fruit. On the outside ackees are bright red in color. When they’re ripe, they open, revealing yellow “brain-like” flesh and large black seeds.

 

Only the yellow flesh is edible (and even then, only when the fruit opens by itself … unripe ackee is poisonous and eating one before it opens by itself may cause severe vomiting and hypoglycemia).

 

Also, although ackee is a fruit, it’s eaten more as a vegetable (often cooked alongside fish and spices. Once cooked, the fruit turns bright yellow and resembles scrambled eggs in texture.

 

Why eat ackee? It’s rich in fiber, B vitamins and vitamin C, along with the heart-healthy monounsaturated fat, oleic acid (the same kind find in olive oil). Given its rich content of oleic acid, researchers noted “Consideration should be given to potential protective health effects of diets which include ackee.”
