Does the widespread saying: “Breakfast is the most important meal of the day” hold any truth?
I always get asked if women should workout differently to men.
I know that vegetarianism and what people choose to eat can be an emotion-filled topic.
The best workouts target all muscle groups, ligaments, tendons, fascia and use both aerobic and anaerobic energy systems. The mentality of most is that to get a fit, toned and well-shaped body one must go to the gym and lift weights or use fancy machinery. This simply is not the case. Body weight or callisthenic exercise is more beneficial than equipment-based exercise. Is it time to move more and lift equipment less to achieve your ideal body?
Are you trying to improve your fitness, lose body fat and get your body to function better? Generally, people turn to running, swimming, cycling, or maybe a team sport like football, etc. Science and the latest fitness trends are proving that these are not the best options. The main reason is that these activities do not require the body to travel through a full range of movement at every joint. For example, when you jog, your hip isn’t even moving through 50 percent of its full range.
