4 Wellness Habits That Help Fight Obesity

4 Wellness Habits That Help Fight Obesity

  4 Wellness Habits That Help Fight Obesity Just as there are many factors that lead to obesity, you can’t fight obesity with only one solution. Exercise and eating a balanced diet are essential, but you won’t see results if you don’t care for your whole self, body and mind. To really see results and feel better overall, your goal should be to make wellness-focused choices in all aspects of life, and make them part of your daily routine. #1 Make Your Workout Routine Enjoyable You know that exercise is an absolute must, but staying committed to a fitness routine is easier said than done. No matter how big your reasons are for wanting to get fit, it’s hard to stay motivated if you’re trying to make yourself stick to doing exercise you don’t enjoy. Find your motivation by discovering what kind of activities you actually want to do. The best way to do this is to vary your routine and try new things. NBC News recommends using a tool called an Exercise-induced Feeling Inventory (EFI). After each workout, you…

Shoulder and Hip Explosion and Stability Exercises

IINSTAGRAM: @ultimatefitnesscentergym @Regran_edfrom @stetsonfry – Taking a step back today from the brute strength work and instead focusing on stability and efficiency. The landmine rotations followed my lateral raises, so by this time my shoulders are already fatiguing. I want them to hold on tight, dont move, and just channel that energy exploding from my legs and obliques. If you guys try this one, I personally recommend using a sub-maximal load. Instead of adding more and more plates to the bar, try to drive off your legs quicker with more explosiveness. This one should look violent, not slow and controlled.     I wanted just the opposite for the battle rope. Now my core isometrically holds and I’m trying to rip it hard and fast with my shoulders to really burn out and end the workout. You can tell that my shoulders are done because I’m overcompensating with my bicep a little more than I would prefer. It’s ok though, the point is that after 4 rounds of 30 seconds per arm, my shoulders and core were spent. Keep training hard, guys!

Make your push ups better

Make your push ups better

There’s a reason why push-ups are still extremely relevant today- they work.  The push-up is a multi-joint exercise that targets deltoids, triceps, pecs, and all of your key muscle stabilizers. Another benefit is that it doesn’t require any additional equipment, so you can perform push ups anytime, anywhere. To get results and stay injury free, you must do them with proper form: Maintain your head, neck and spine in neutral position, keep your abs completely engaged, and your lower body (glutes, hips, etc) activated through the movement. Get started: Learn and practice the traditional push-up with good form. Work your way up to three sets of eight. Once you’re able to perform them without faltering, you’ll be ready to perform the following variations. Mixing up the movements and hand positioning will challenge different muscles, burn more calories and test your endurance. Try these variations one at a time using proper form. Then move on to the next one!  1. Plank-Ups: Start in push-up position (hands under shoulders, back flat, legs extended behind you, toes tucked under). Keeping upper body engaged, lower right…

The Best Tips For Those Training For A Marathon Photo via Pixabay by Skeeze   For anyone interested in becoming a runner–or for runners interested in participating in a marathon — it’s important to do some research first on what exactly goes into the sport. While it’s a great way to get (or stay) in shape, it can also be hard on your body if done improperly, and many precautions need to be taken to ensure you stay healthy and safe while you’re participating.   One of the first things a runner should know is that the right shoes can make you or break you. Don’t listen to recommendations from a friend, as every shoe fits differently on a different foot. Take your time looking around at the shoe store, and get your foot measured and the shoe fitted properly before you make a decision.   “Get fitted at a pro running store. If you are serious about completing a full marathon, it’s worth the investment. Spend time getting the perfect shoe for your foot. Your friend may convince you…
