Exercise can even help make you smarter

Tuesday, February 17th, 2015

Everyone should know by now that exercise has a multitude of benefits. But, did you know that working out regularly can even make you smarter?
According to numerous studies, hopping onto a treadmill or elliptical machine can help your brain work better.
Neuroscientists and physiologists have an ever-growing collection of scientific data that shows that regular exercise can help the brain resist shrinkage and enhance cognitive ability.
Incredibly, exercise does more to strengthen and support the brain than thinking does. Wrap your head around that for a minute.
In one study, researchers at the Beckman Institute for Advanced Science and Technology at the University of Illinois studied four groups of mice and put them into four distinct living arrangements. After putting the mice through different experiences, the ones that had more physical activity did better on cognitive tests and had healthier brain tissues.
“Only one thing had mattered,” a researcher reported, “and that’s whether they had a running wheel.”
Research has shown that exercise improves and even increases cells in the brain, fortifies the connections among neurons and sparks neurogenesis.
That’s just part of the benefit of exercise to the brain, which even the most advanced scientists can’t fully explain at this point.
Many researches think exercise is especially helpful for senior citizen’s brain function and some even believe it could help stave off Alzheimer’s disease to a degree.

Let exercising with your partner help spark Valentine’s Day

Monday, February 9th, 2015

This Valentine’s Day, show your special someone how much you care by giving the gift of fitness. Make plans to enjoy a fun, healthy experience this Feb. 14.
It’s a proven fact that couples and families who exercise together not only strengthen their bodies, but their relationships.
There are lots of things you could do to enjoy fitness fun this Valentine’s Day.
You could make plans to go to your health club together, or exercise in the comfort of your own home.
Perhaps you could go to a specialty fitness store and invest in an item such as a treadmill or elliptical machine so that you can exercise together year-round.
For a healthy Valentine’s fitness date, consider going swimming together, walking or jogging side-by-side, or winter sports such as ice skating or skiing.
If you don’t regularly exercise with your significant other, perhaps a fun Valentine’s Day workout will get you in the mood to work out together more often.
In may cases, exercising together has been found to improve relationships.
Of course, don’t just plan a Valentine’s Day exercise date! You better do something else, too, like get a card, gift, etc.
However, a fun time exercising with the one you love could set the mood for even more fun later.

Foam rollers provide a great way to loosen up muscles

Thursday, February 5th, 2015
One of the best-kept secrets for improving flexibility is the foam roller.

One of the best-kept secrets for improving flexibility is the foam roller.

One of the best-kept secrets for improving flexibility is the foam roller.
After a light warmup of 5-10 minutes, such as walking and-or using an elliptical machine, grab a foam roller.
Foam rollers are available at specialty fitness equipment stores such as At Home Fitness.
A foam roller is a product that lets people give themselves a massage, which is also known as self-myofascial release or SMR. A foam roller is actually a form of soft tissue therapy that many people pay top dollar to get from a massage therapist. Massage is often used by athletes and recommended by physical therapists.
Some people call Self-myofascial release the “poor man’s massage” and I agree with that assessment. Myofascial release is a hands-on technique that therapists use by applying a strong dragging force across layers of soft-tissue in the body. Eventually, the body will “release” the tissue and flexibility between those muscles surfaces is achieved.
The foam roller can obviously never completely replace a therapist, but it’s a great substitute.
If you’ve had pain in certain areas a foam roller can help relax the contracted muscles, thus allowing an increase in blood flow to the affected areas. The pain or stiffness can be greatly reduced or even eliminated over time.
Foam rollers can improve workouts or even overall athletic performance in many areas. Many people who are involved in yoga and pilates also incorporate foam rollers into their stretching routines.
Among the muscles that can most benefit from foam rollers are calves, quadriceps and lower back, as well as loosening up the Achilles’ tendon.
There are a number of different foam rollers on the market that vary in stiffness. Talk to a sports medicine doctor, trainer or trained fitness store specialist for more information on foam rollers and workout plans that you can use them for.

If you’re looking for a great way to change up your workout, climb aboard a rowing machine.
Rowing machines are a low-impact exercise that provide a great way to burn lots of calories and build muscle strength.
Simulating the motion of rowing on a boat, a rowing machine is a fun, functional exercise with numerous benefits.
You’ll get a great cardio workout with a rowing machine and burn up to 125 calories in just 15-20 minutes.

Row forward or backward and change up your strokes at different points of the workout.
Rowing machines are fun and effective for people of all ages, but many seniors find them particularly effective because they place little or no strain on the back and joints.

New Year’s resolution recovery plan: five tips to get you back on track

Thursday, January 15th, 2015

New Year’s resolutions sound so good in theory. People say on Jan. 1 each year that they will strive to do things like get more fit, eat healthier and be a better person.
Statistic show that somewhere around two-thirds of Americans make a New Year’s resolution, but unfortunately only somewhere between 5-20 percent of people actually keep them.
And most of the people who fail do so within the first two weeks of the year.
With today being Jan. 15, that means a whole lot of people have already fallen short of their resolution for 2015. Have you come up short up already?
Don’t give up! Give it a another chance. Here are five tips to get back on track to reach your 2015 New Year’s Resolution:
1. Re-evaluate your resolution – Did you set a goal that was too tough to reach, such as getting to the gym five days a week? Maybe scale it back to three days a week – that’s a lot better than quitting altogether.
2. Get tougher – Maybe you’ve already slipped up on your goal because your willpower wasn’t strong enough. Write your goal down on a piece of paper and hang it up somewhere where you’ll see it all the time to remind you. You are important and deserve the best, so make your resolution a top priority.
3. Use the buddy system – Some people find it much easier to exercise with a partner, or as part of a fitness class or group.
4. Plan out meals – If it seems hopeless to eat right, consider planning out meals beforehand.
Don’t expect to eat healthy if you wait until the last minute to make breakfast, lunch and dinner each day.
Get a gameplan ahead of time and go to the grocery store with a smart list.
5. Start today – Quit putting your goals off, start today. Every little positive thing you do will add up to big results.
If you have a few slip-ups along the way don’t beat yourself up over it. Being a more fit person is a marathon, not a sprint.
