Neurosurgeon says strength training best defense against aging, disease

Tuesday, June 10th, 2014

As if you should need any more reasons to exercise, here’s one more great one: strength training is the best defense against aging and disease.
“Our ability to fight off disease resides in our muscles,” according to Dr. Brett Osborn, author of “Get Serious, A Neurosurgeon’s Guide to Optimal Health and Fitness.” “The greatest thing you can do for your body is to build muscle.”
Dr. Osborn points to a major study conducted over nearly two decades of approximately 9,000 men ranging in age from 20-80. The men still alive on average were those with the most muscular strength. (BMJ, formerly British Medical Journal, 2008).
Muscle is made up of protein, which is “nothing but good for you,” Dr. Osborn stated.
On the other hand, when a person has excess fat, it releases potentially harmful hormones and other chemicals. The extra fat leads to a disrupted flow of excess biochemicals, which can increase insulin resistance and boost risk factors for stroke and high blood pressure, among other problems.
“Increased cytokines, an immune system chemical, for example, are associated with increased risk for cardiovascular disease,” Dr. Osborn says. “You’re only as old as your arteries!”
No matter a person’s size or age, they can benefit from strength training exercises.
Dr. Osborn recommends this basic strength training regimen to build around:
* Squats – A full-body exercise, they can generate a robust hormonal response as numerous muscular structures are traumatized during the movement (even your biceps)
* Overhead presses – Engage the shoulders, arms and chest.
* Deadlifts – Work the large muscles of your backside and the front of your thighs.
* Bench press – Targets the chest, shoulders and triceps and also can result in a big hormonal response.
* Pull-up / chin-up – Difficult for most people to do, but great for upper body muscle development.

Ten great motivational fitness quotes to get you going

Wednesday, June 4th, 2014

One of my all-time favorite inspirational quotes was delivered by Woody Allen when he said, “Eighty percent of success is showing up.”
I believe that’s especially true when it comes to fitness.
If you consistently make time to exercise, good things will happen for you.
Do you need a little extra push to get going on your workouts, or even life in general? Here are 10 more of my favorite motivational quotes to get you going:
1. The good Lord gave you a body that can stand almost anything. It’s your mind you have to convince. – Vince Lombardi
2. Many of life’s failures are people who did not realize how close they were to success when they gave up. – Thomas Edison
3. Leave all afternoon for exercise and recreation, which are as necessary as reading. I will rather say more necessary because health is worth more than learning. – Thomas Jefferson
4. Ability is what you’re capable of doing. Motivation determines what you do. Attitude determines how well you do it. -Lou Holtz
5. Motivation is what gets you started. Habit is what keeps you going. – Jim Ryan
6. Strive for progress, not perfection. – Unknown
7. I’d rather be a failure at something I enjoy than a success at something I hate. – George Burns
8. Energy and persistence conquer all things. – Benjamin Franklin
9. Nothing great was ever achieved without enthusiasm. – Ralph Waldo Emerson
10. You want me to do something… tell me I can’t do it. – Maya Angelou

Five reasons to buy an exercise bike

Monday, June 2nd, 2014
A BH Fitness SK8400 Recumbent Bike

A BH Fitness SK8400 Recumbent Bike

An exercise bike is a key part of many home gyms.
Whether you choose a recumbent bike or upright bike, people of nearly all fitness levels can benefit.
Two of the most important factors when deciding if you want to add an exercise bike to tour home gym are how much you will use it and the cost.
It doesn’t make much sense to spend hard-earned money on something you aren’t going to use.
Once you determine what piece of equipment you want, then start shopping around for prices and options.
For many people, one of the most popular purchases is a home exercise bike. Here are five reasons to buy an exercise bike:
MANY WORKOUT OPTIONS – These bikes put less wear and tear on your legs than running on a treadmill. You won’t burn quite as many calories as running in the same amount of time, but exercise bikes still offer the chance to get consistently good workouts.
FIGHT BOREDOM – Many exercise bikes come equipped with numerous workout options that will keep you from getting board even though you’re in a stationery position. They come programmed with numerous biking workouts, ranging from different courses that require sprints, interval training, pedaling downhill and uphill. You can do all this without manually having to keep pressing buttons and changing options. If you want to be surprised, select a random options course that will keep you ready for anything.
CONTROL YOUR ENVIRONMENT – Another nice feature of a home exercise bike is that you can control the environment in your home. You can set up a TV in front of the bike, or listen to the stereo. On many bikes it’s possible to have a rack set up to read the newspaper, or a book, or magazine.
CALORIE COUNT – Studies show on average that people burn 750 calories per hour on a treadmill, compared to 550 on an exercise bike. That can be a little misleading, though, because for many people it’s much easier to keep up a good pace longer on an exercise bike than a treadmill. So in the long run, you may be capable of burning more calories on a bike.
EASY TO DO – Riding a bike is one of the first big things kids learn to do. After that you never forget how – “it’s as easy as riding a bike” the saying goes.

Three top reasons to have your own home gym

Wednesday, May 28th, 2014

When weighing the pros and cons of having your own home gym, or signing up for a gym membership, there are manyy factors to consider.
For many people, the choice becomes obvious why it’s better to be able to exercise at home.
Here are three top reasons to own your own home gym:
1. Convenience – Having your own gym can save you lots of time, from driving to a gym, to waiting in line for equipment and stopping to talk to people. You can use your home gym whenever you want. It’s always open and there’s no reason to have to wait in line for a machine or bench to open up at a club.
2. Cost effective – It’s actually cheaper in the long run to own your own gym. Although it will cost you $500 at the minimum and up to $1,000 or more to get a decent set-up going at your home gym, you will make back your money over the cost of a gym membership (around $600 a year or more) in a matter of just a few years. It’s truly a life-time investment.
3. Freedom – Home gyms allow you to do things your way, with no club rules to follow. You are also spared having to lay on a bench, or sit on a leg extension machine, following “ultra sweaty man.”
Or having to talk to someone whose only social life, other than living in his parent’s basement, seems to be talking to people at the health club.
You can also train the way you want to and not have people watching or coming up to you offer suggestions. The TV and music are also yours to control.
Having a home gym does take discipline because some people have to fight other distractions at home that keep them from working out. That’s an easy to dilemma to deal with, though, just schedule yourself time to get away in your own home to exercise.

Five summer workout tips

Thursday, May 15th, 2014

Summer is a great time of year for fitness.
Especially if you live in cold-weather states, there are opportunities we can only dream of while cooped up inside during snowstorms.
There are an almost endless number of summer workout opportunities, ranging from running, to swimming, to cycling and hiking outside.
However, you can also literally run, swim, cycle or hike into danger if you’re not careful.
Here are five summer workout tips to enhance your fitness:
1. Stay hydrated – Extreme heat and humidity can quickly drain the body’s supply of water, electrolytes and salt. The crucial balance of water and electrolytes is essential to keep your body functioning properly.
2. Dress for success – Wear light-colored, loose fitting clothing. The light color will help reflect heat and cotton material will help the sweat evaporate. You may also want to wear specially dry-fit clothing.
Another good way to keep cool is to wear a hat or even a bandana or t-shirt wrapped on your head. It will help keep moisture in and keep the sun off you some.
3. Exercise in the morning – The coolest time of day to exercise is in the morning before temperatures spike. A good morning workout can also provide you with energy for the rest of the day.
4. Listen to your body – Heat exhaustion and dehydration should be taken very seriously in the summer. Stop immediately if you’re feeling dizzy, faint or nauseous.
5. Don’t forget the home gym – Even though the weather’s warm and sunny, it’s also nice to still have the option of working out in a home gym or at a club. You should still keep up a strength training regimen and it’s also nice to have the option to do a cardio workout indoors on a treadmill, elliptical or exercise bike.
