Importance of Treadmill Parts

Whenever we use a product it is always advisable to have an idea about the working and the different parts that go into that product especially exercise equipment. Improper use of exercise equipments can lead to injury and stress problems in future. Also with a treadmill around the possibility of you having to do some maintenance and repairing also arises. For good maintenance and small repairing jobs you should be familiar with the various parts that are found in the treadmill. Through this short article we intend to shed some light on the main parts that make up your treadmill so that you can have knowledge about your treadmill and its working.

From the outside, a treadmill looks to be very simple in construction. You have a walking belt that keeps moving and you just have to stand on top and run to a specific speed that you would set. But it is not a simple piece of construction. The major part of a treadmill is its motor and the drive

Keep Bones Healthy

First is something that you should be doing anyways for all aspects of your health. That is exercise. Things like running, biking, swimming and sports are all extremely beneficial to the health of your bones. In addition to this, regular exercise will help your health in general. It is great for your cardiovascular system, and helps to combat the problems caused by fatty foods that are high in cholesterol. If you don’t usually get much exercise, then running or swimming laps may sound intimidating. You can start off going for a short walk every day, and get plenty of benefit from that.

Your diet is another huge part of maintaining healthy bones. You have probably heard of how calcium helps your bones. This is certainly true. Quite a few foods naturally contain high amounts of calcium, such as milk and vegetables. Also, many foods are fortified with extra calcium. When you’re picking out foods at the store such as frozen snacks, you should look at the nutrition facts to find ones that are high in vitamins in general, especially calcium.

Exercising During Ramadan

Every day during the month of Ramadan, Muslims around the world break their fast when the fourth prayer of the day, Maghrib, is due. They eat before the sun comes up at a certain time and after a certain time during the night.

Its very obvious that the coming month will create a buzz for those who would like to continue working out. The common misconception is to cut back totally on our workout and resume only after Hari Raya (also Hari Raya Puasa, literally “Fasting Day of Celebration”, the Malay term for the Muslim festival of Eid ul-Fitr).

However I would like to think of it differently. Please note that these steps that I’m going to suggest works well for me, so it may not necessarily work as well for you. My best advice is to listen to your body.

For me, its not really a question of “Should I train?” or not but rather what kind of workout and at what time I should do it. It is as straightforward as that. Some would doubt if

Holy Grail of Fitness

It’s you… The Holy Grail of Fitness is YOU. That’s right…no program, product, or course in the world can equal the power in which you have. The only thing that defines what shape or condition you’re in is you. How you use you is entirely up to you. You can buy the latest course, get advice from a local fitness instructor, you can even go out and purchase the latest, high tech body-building machinery. But if you don’t do anything with these resources, you’ve done nothing but waste your time and money.

You know those fitness ebooks that promise to make you stronger, faster, and healthier? Most of the refunds come from people that didn’t do anything with the knowledge they received. They practically read the book sitting on their arse, and then ask for a refund when they don’t get the results that they were promised in the quoted time by the author.

You are the creator of your own life. Knowledge without application is nothing but useless information. After you get the knowledge, you must be willing to take inspired action toward your fitness goals. It doesn’t work any other way.

Sorry if I’ve disappointed you, but what I’ve

Facialbuilding

I had no intention of giving up bodybuilding, but determined to remedy my dilemma. On a hunch that resistance training could add fullness to my face in the same way it did to my body, I decided to convert each Isometric exercise into an exercise using resistance. This was the beginning of Facialbuilding

Knowing what it took to increase muscle density (fullness), I knew resistance training would be far more aggressive than the facial training I had been doing. This took a lot of nerve on my part since I, too, had been duped into thinking any handling of the face could prove detrimental. When I described my new training technique, which I dubbed ‘Facialbuilding’ as “an extension of bodybuilding”, fellow trainers thought I was out of my mind. Frankly, I wasn’t so sure they weren’t on to something.

Much to my relief, my hunch paid off. A very short time proved facial muscles to be every bit as responsive to resistance training as the rest of the body. My face was still thin, but with the extra lift and firmness, I went from gaunt to a healthier more athletic look. That’s when it became perfectly clear why

Perform Flexibility Exercises

Stretch The Tissues

Stretch the tissues that feel tight. Not every part of your body needs to be stretched. For some joints, you just need to maintain the range of motion you already have.

Avoid Bouncing

Never bounce or force a stretch. Apply gradual pressure and move gently through your comfort zone until you feel some tension or a slight stretch.

Hold And Move

For some exercises, you will hold a position for 20 to 30 seconds as you relax and breathe naturally, and then repeat the exercise three to five times. For other exercises, you will move back and forth between two positions for 20 repetitions, holding a stretch for 20 to 30 seconds on the last repetition.

Warm Up And Cool Down

Use stretching to warm you up and cool you down. You can use flexibility exercises in warm ups and cool downs as part of a general conditioning exercise program. They will help you to avoid soreness and injury from exercising.

Stretch For Pain Control

Use stretching for comfort and pain control. Most people obtain pan control by performing flexibility exercises every day or even several

Tone Up Flabby Arms

You Cannot Spot Reduce the back of the Arms

There is no such thing as spot reduction for any part of the body and this is important to know. Even if you did push-ups until the cows came home, you would still have flabby arms if you did not reduce your overall body fat. Don’t waste a lot of time with exercise unless you adjust your diet – which leads to the next important point.

Body Fat Reduction is Key

When you have a layer of fat surrounding your muscles, there is no way for tone and definition to appear. You must adjust your diet by cutting back on high fat, high calorie, junk foods and focus on healthy foods like fruits, veggies, lean proteins, and good fats (EFA’s – essential fatty acids.) No exercise plan in the world will work for you unless you change your eating habits for the better. Find out what a healthy body fat percentage is for you and work towards it. Only then will all of your hard work exercising pay off to rid yourself of the flab in the back of your arms.

Useful Arm Exercises

Exercise Regularly

Starting an exercise program is not one of the easiest things to do. But continuing to do an exercise program is probably the hardest of the two.

One tip is to make a friendly wager with a group of friends. Each of you have to workout together, and if you miss a workout you have to pay all the other members the wager amount. So if you make it $20 and you have 3 friends in the group and you miss a workout, you would have to pay $60 for each workout you miss.

The point of this is to stay motivated. If it costs you $60 for each workout you miss, you’re going to be motivated not to miss one.

The way to exercise regularly is to make it a habit. It takes about 30 days to form a new habit. So if you can exercise for 30 days then you can make it a habit and then it will stick with you for the rest of your life.

One way to get started is get up an extra 30 minutes early in the morning and go for a jog. Jog for 15 minutes

Value Of Abdominal Exercise During Pregnancy

Abdominal exercise during pregnancy may sound a bit drastic, but actually yields good results, as the abdominal muscles play a major role during labor. Abdominal exercise during pregnancy reduces the diastasis recti effect, where the abdominal muscles get separated, a common event during pregnancies. They also reduce back pains, as abdominal exercises not only strengthen the abdomen area, but the back as well.

On vanity’s side, abdominal exercises during pregnancy improves a pregnant woman’s look, which is “carried over” after the pregnancy period.

One thing to note about abdominal exercise during pregnancy would be to first consult the doctor before engaging in any abdominal exercise. Most doctors tell pregnant women never to engage in “lying facing up” exercises during the first trimester of the pregnancy period. Finding the ideal, meaning safe yet effective, abdominal exercise during pregnancy could prove to be difficult, as one pregnant woman’s physique differs from another, so it is highly advisable to consult the doctor first. Chances are, he or she would have a number of “tailor cut” exercise routines to share.

The benefits of abdominal exercise during pregnancy include a pregnant woman’s improved resistance to fatigue, improved posture, lesser gaining

Get Flat Abs Without Breaking A Sweat

No wonder that surveys show that the abdominals are one of the key turn-ons and turn-offs for both men and women. Having flat abs is not only great for your health, it’s a boost to your social and sex life.

That’s why in every gym you can see people doing endless cycles of crunches. People put in hours each week trying to cut down their belly fat and develop those dream abs muscles. Yet the truth is that very few people succeed. The main reason is that they put in their time and effort doing ineffective exercises. They waste a lot of time and energy when true, high intensity, abs workouts shouldn’t last that long.

In fact, there’s one stomach exercise which doesn’t even require you to move yet is incredibly effective. It’s the best way to get those flat abs without even breaking a sweat. Here’s how you do it:

Starting Position:

Place your fore-arms on the floor in a triangle shape with your clasped fingers as the apex. Stretch your legs so that you are fully extended with your head in the air directly above your clasped hands and your legs on

Physical Fitness

To get some clarification on the definition, you have to first understand that the definition of fitness is comprised of two separate parts. And including both parts makes the definition more accurate. As a matter of fact, the most accepted definition includes a general or health-related fitness component as well as a specific or performance/skill-related fitness (the ability to perform specific aspects of sports or tasks) component. So a definition falls short when it only uses one part.

Some argue that physical fitness should be measured through the use of some type of criteria (for the health-related components of physical fitness). Health-related or general fitness comprises those components of fitness that exhibit a relationship with health status as a result of regular exercise, proper diet and nutrition, and proper rest for physical recovery within necessary parameters. In other words, being in a quality state of health and well-being.

On the other hand, some say physical fitness should be measured through a population-based norm defined by specific achievement scores on various fitness tests that represent desired health standards (for the performance/skill-related components of fitness). Performance/skill-related or specific fitness is a person’s ability to perform in a specific

Trampoline Prior Usage

Some important factors which need to be kept in mind before using the trampoline are given below:

  • It is essential to place the trampoline where there is adequate overhead and lateral clearance. A minimum of 24 feet (7.3m) is recommended from the floor or ground. When used outdoors, care should be taken to provide adequate clearance for wires, tree limbs, fences, and other possible hazards.
  • Place the trampoline on a level surface before use. A loose, thick white sand application is recommended to be applied beneath the trampoline and in the immediate surrounding area.
  • The trampoline should always be used in well lighted area. If artificial illumination is provided, it is recommended that such artificial illumination meet the standards of 50 fc (5381x) as recommended for gymnasiums and field houses in IES Recommended Practice RP-6.
  • Remove any obstructions from beneath the trampoline and enclosure.
  • Assembly requires two adults. Keep children away from the trampoline enclosure until it is fully assembled.
  • Use gloves to protect your hands from pinch points during assembly.
  • Make sure that the trampoline is properly assembled, with the frame pad properly attached, before
    you assemble the trampoline enclosure.

Active Recovery for Exercise

The body needs a break and rest from our routines. When we change the routines, we are allowing our bodies to rest and recover properly. For example, a runner might need to rest from an injury. The water can be a great source of active recovery for people who exercise and athletes. Using a pool to do a light workout can be one way to change our routines. The key is allowing the muscles to recover by doing something completely different and less intense for our bodies. Stretching and using a foam roller are commonly used for active recovery techniques since it may help prevent injury. Stretching is often overlooked but is a great idea for active recovery since everyone needs flexibility.

Active recovery is not to be confused with cross-training. Both are different but the main difference is the activities for cross-training might still be intense. The activities for active recovery would most likely be less intense. This is only because the muscles need rest and recovery. Someone doing cross-training might run and swim with the same intensity on different days. A person should try to do less on off days and remember they are recovering
