Health & Fitness NewsGo barefoot for whole-body health
If you refuse to wear shoes in the summer, you may enjoy better blood circulation, a happier mood, stronger bones and better posture. According to Barefoot in Toronto, a group that promotes a barefoot lifestyle, barefoot walking increases skin health, reduces foot calluses, builds arch strength and enhances sensory stimulation. Going barefoot also creates healthier toenails and reduces foot odour.
To burn fat, don’t sweat it
Sweat signals a rising body temperature, not necessarily an increased calorie burn (although most of us will sweat as we work harder). “In the sauna you’ll sweat buckets but you aren’t burning fat.“ The best indicator of calorie burn is either heart rate or a rating of perceived exertion (RPE).” RPE is a self-report scale that ranges from 1 (complete rest) to 10 (maximum effort). High intensity equals increased heart rate, which equals more fat burn.
Yell to increase fitness levels and self-confidence
IntenSati is “active meditation”—a fitness program that uses the voice and mind to intensify physical workouts. Participants say or shout empowering affirmations while kicking, jumping or lunging. For example, while punching, they yell, “I. Am. Strong. Now!” These motivational phrases boost confidence and distract participants from feeling fatigued, which increases the workout benefits.
Choose interval training for best results
“You can do too much cardio.“ To burn fat effectively, one-minute sprint/recover repeats (interval training) on any cardio machine for a total of 20 minutes can be more beneficial than exercising at a steady rate." Or tackle your intervals outside by walking, running, biking or skipping.
Bond to increase motivation and focus
“It’s not necessarily resistance training, cardio or core work that keeps you fit.“ It’s meeting with others.” Healthy bonding moments—such as running hills or attending Pilates classes in a group setting—keep you motivated and focused on your fitness goals.
Take celebrity fitness advice with a grain of salt
“Don't believe everything you read about how the stars stay fit." Many celebrities work out four to six days a week for up to 90 minutes each time, have professional trainers and eat a clean, very calorie-restrictive diet. They don’t ‘just’ do Pilates or yoga twice a week.” When you compare yourself to a svelte movie star, remember that it’s her job to stay beautiful.
In a time crunch? Get a better workout!
“People are surprised at how little exercise they need to get and stay fit.” “It’s the quality, not quantity, of exercise that counts.” “A time limit makes every set count.”
Food packs more punch than exercise
“When it comes to changing the size and shape of your body, exercise is only 30 percent of it.” “The rest needs to come from proper nutrition and a positive sense of self.” It only takes a few minutes to consume about 1,000 calories (one Quiznos Classic Italian sub, for instance)—but it can take hours to burn that sandwich off.
Tackle the best time to burn fat
It is advised to do cardio in the morning, on an empty stomach, if you’re looking to shed some weight. “Since you haven't eaten since dinner, the carbohydrate stored in your muscles and liver will be nearly depleted,” she says, “so your body has to reach into your fat stores for energy." Lean people should eat easily digested carbs before morning workouts, such as oatmeal and fruit—or risk losing lean muscle mass.
HYGEIA was the goddess of good health. In classical sculpture she was represented as a woman holding a large serpent in her arms. In Greek and Roman mythology, Hygeia was a daughter of the god of medicine. She was the goddess/personification of health, cleanliness and sanitation. She also played an important part in her father's cult. While her father was more directly associated with healing, she was associated with the prevention of sickness and the continuation of good health. More broadly, she ruled over matters of clean-living, washing, eating well, looking after yourself; actually of having a preventative attitude toward disease, and preventing the onset of illness in the first place rather than trying to cure. Her name is the source of the word "hygiene".
