Jump Rope Workout Exercise to get you in shape


Jump Rope Workout – A 10 minute a day full body workout – click here to check out this video

Celebrity trainer Tanja Djelevic (http://tanjadjelevic.com/) shows host Judy Greer a simple full body workout using only a jump rope.

When was the last time you jumped rope – fourth, fifth or maybe sixth grade? Well, jump roping is one of the most efficient ways to burn calories and keep the weight off. How many calories do you burn jumping rope? Try nearly fifteen to twenty calories every minute! That is an efficient way to burn energy and keep pounds from packing on, and, jump roping is fun, affordable and can be done with a work-out buddy.

Dr. Peter Shulman, MD, professor and medical expert from the University of Connecticut Health Center, reports that jumping rope is one of the best ways to improve your heart health. Not only does the exercise burn calories needed to lose weight, but elevates your heart rate to a level that most cardio machines are not capable of doing. Dr. Shulman reports that jump roping strengthens the core, upper body and legs while burning a lot of calories in a compact amount of time.

Some doctors argue the benefits of jump roping in those who are extremely overweight because of the direct stress put on the knees, ankles, legs and hips. However, physical training experts report that even obese individuals may benefit from the intense work-out if done properly and at a low impact level. Some of the basic requirements for jump roping are as follows:

  • Obtain a beaded rope that holds its shape and is easy to control
  • Shorten or lengthen the rope so that the handles comfortably reach the armpits
  • Wear comfortable athletic shoes that are approximately a half-size larger that normally worn to allow room for the toes and feet during impact
  • Choose comfortable grips that provide good handling and precision when turning
  • Secure an open space for jumping rope that is at least 4×6 with approximately one foot clearance overhead

These helpful tips will keep you from injuring yourself or those around you and get you off to the right start when implementing this exercise into your routine.

For novices who are just getting started, don’t focus too much on how many calories you burn jumping rope, but determine a particular time that you want to achieve. Start out with a low-impact jump for one to two minute intervals. If you are able to increase the duration of time spent jumping, then up the amount by thirty second intervals.

Jumping rope should be fun and invigorating, not painful and discouraging. If you are unable to go more than a few jumps at a time or find yourself getting tangled up in the ropes, don’t get discouraged but keep practicing. With jump roping, practice does make perfect and before you know it you will be jumping rope as light-footed as a heavy-weight prize fighter in training.

If you are in doubt of your physical ability to jump rope, or haven’t done so for thirty or forty years, it is important to check with your family doctor to get the go-ahead. Remember to warm-up and cool down both before and after your work-out to prevent injury and as with any exercise, stretching is one of the most important elements to working out. Stretching will also loosen your muscles and help you determine the impact each jump has on your body.

Jump roping can be very beneficial to your body and heart, while providing fun for the entire family. If you have children, incorporate them into the mix and jump rope together. Your children and your heart will thank you.

How to Make Friends with our Fear – Reblogged


Health starts with a healthy mind, that includes conquering and making Friends with our fear.

Thoughts on Theatre

Ready, set, uh oh. A not so friendly visitor is back again. Fear finds us all every once in a while, but there is no reason to remain frozen by it. The easiest way to face it head on is to put yourself in its shoes. By uncovering the roots, you can ensure that you nurture the kind of mental garden you covet – with weeds a thing of the past.

Put a name on that which scares you. Identify what’s getting you down – whether it’s a real challenge or a perceived slight. A target is much easier to hit when you know what it looks like.

Stop the self-chatter. For two minutes. Hopefully for ten. When the mind’s worked up it will start firing off negativity on all cylinders. Quiet everything up there. All that radio frequency is getting in the way. After a few minutes of a true mental break…

Battling Chronic Headaches? Understanding Migraine, Tension, Cluster and Sinus Headaches. Maximized Living Maximized Living Blog


 

Headache

Battling Chronic Headaches? Understanding Migraine, Tension, Cluster and Sinus Headaches. Maximized Living Maximized Living Blog.

 

Headache disorders are extraordinarily common, yet very few population-based studies exist in spite of the high rates of occurrence in developing countries.  This lack of statistics is due to limited funding and large, often rural populations.  Fortunately, headaches can be significantly reduced through improved lifestyle factors like diet, exercise and stress reduction.

In developed countries, Tension Type Headache (TTH) can affect up to two-thirds of adult males and more than 80 percent of females. Statistics show about 3,000 migraine attacks occur every day per million people and as many as 1 in 20 adults has a headache nearly every day.


What are the types of headaches?

The most frequent types of headaches are migraines, tension and sinus. The symptoms of the headaches differ based on the individual and the unique causative triggers.  The goal should not be limited to treating headaches but preventing them through a proactive approach.

Migraines are common in adults and teenagers.   Symptoms include severe pain either on one or both sides of the head which moves from one area of the skull to another. Migraines are commonly grouped with a series of other symptoms as well.  One can experience an upset stomach, sensitivity to light, sensitivity to sound and moodiness.

The most common form of headache is the Tension Type Headache.  Pain associated with this type of headache commonly extends into the neck, shoulders and the middle of the back.  Poor posture, abnormal sleeping positions, past/current injuries and significant stress levels can all contribute to tension headaches.

Sinus headaches commonly affect individuals during weather changes and seasonal allergen exposure. Sinus headaches are caused by pressure in the nasal passages that can cause fever, eye strain and coughing. The pain is continuous and is commonly mistaken for a migraine type headache.

A cluster headache is the least common – but most severe – type of primary headache.  The intensity of this headache is very high and can be described as a burning or piercing pain.  This constant pain is located behind one eye or in the eye region.  Cluster headaches usually occur at a specific time of day and recur one to three times in a predictable pattern.

Associated Risk Factors Found

Hormonal changes are a common cause of headaches in women. The physical, chemical and emotional stress of puberty, monthly menstrual cycles, pregnancies and menopause require constant hormonal fluctuations throughout life.  Even minor imbalances can be a cause of headaches.

Headaches can also be triggered by specific environmental factors such as exposure to secondhand smoke, fumes from household cleaners, perfumes, exposure to certain allergens and even eating certain foods. Stress, pollution, noise and certain types of lighting are other environmental factors that can trigger headaches.

What Causes Headaches?

Most of the causes of headaches are part of our everyday lives.  The secret to treatment and prevention is to improve how your body is able to respond to the onslaught of triggers.  This improved response can be achieved through dietary factors, quality exercise, stress reduction, proper sleep and adequate hydration levels.

Exercise has been deemed one of the best ways to improve how your body responds to stress.  Engaging in an exercise programme will improve neurology and circulation while reducing the damaging effects of stress.  Exercise helps balance hormones, encourage weight loss and aide in detoxification.

Chiropractic care provides a safe, proven method to help naturally relieve all types of headaches. A study conducted by the Duke University Evidence-based Practice Center evaluated the effects of different types of treatments (medicinal drugs, acupuncture, deep-tissue massage, chiropractic care, etc.) on headaches. The researchers found that cervical spinal manipulation—chiropractic neck adjustment—immediately improved the severity of headaches. Even more telling, continual adjustments were the best option for reducing headaches over an extended period of time.

Chiropractic can lessen pain right now and reduce the frequency of headaches over an extended period of time.

If you’re currently suffering from chronic headaches, don’t worry. There are plenty of all-natural steps you can take to relieve the pain.

They are certified in all-natural wellness techniques to train your body to overcome and resist all types of chronic pain, including headaches.

This Will Make You Change Your Mind About
Not Buying Organic Every Time.

The Bottom Line

While many feel the recent meta-analysis fuels the ongoing debate about organic foods, the fact is that organics have far more benefits than the strictly nutritional. Nutrition is extremely important, and organic foods are packed with the vitamins, nutrients, and enzymes you need for good health.

Of extreme importance, organic foods respect the environment, have fewer toxicity-related health risks, and support local economies. I for one, firmly stand behind the decision to choose organic. I believe you vote with your purchases, and when you choose organic you choose to support a healthy, clean earth, and put healthy, clean produce into you and your family’s bodies.

Make a Date With Fitness ~ Reblog from Refine Fitness Studio


Refine Fitness Studio

One of my favourite things this time of year is getting back to my regular routine. Up with the kids at 6: 30 a.m., out the door by 7: 45 and at my studio or teaching in the Department of Kinesiology at the University of Windsor by 8: 30 a.m.

My clients are just like me. Many wander from their regular routines over the summer and are now getting back on track.

A great way to adopt an exercise routine is to book three or four regular appointments for yourself. Exercise is like many other things: If you don’t schedule it, it won’t happen. Having a regular time to exercise also helps you mentally get into the routine while scheduling other things around the workout.

Most busy adults I know need to take a step further and schedule this appointment with a trainer or group exercise instructor who will keep…

Quick Set Straight Leg Dead Lift Exercise


Quick Sets Exercises Give You More for Less

Keeping healthy includes exercising 3-7 times a week 5 – 60 minutes a day. Check out the Straight Leg Dead Lift Exercise. Why exercise? It is one of the best natural treatments for Depression, Anxiety, weight loss, Osteoporosis, Mental Health, Fibromyalgia, Chronic Fatigue, Cell Oxygenization to aid in Cancer Treatment and other diseases.

Quick Sets Give You More for Less

Quick Sets are the ultimate way to perform resistance training. These routines can be as simple and as short as you need them to be in order to fit them into your schedule or level of motivation on any given day or week.   This is the ideal way to add more weight training to your MaxT3 program, take advantage of the T3 principles, and leverage science to radically cut the amount of time spent working out. This program can also be performed more or fewer times per week, dependent on how quickly you desire to make changes to your muscles.
Due to the type of adaptation the body must make while performing Quick Sets, you are able to create significant changes in the strength, fitness, and composition (fat percentage vs. muscle) of a body part within three minutes. Elite athletes to busy moms, overworked businessmen and businesswomen, or students on a tight time schedule can still be extremely effective in their lives and get in shape all at the same time.
These routines can be used to increase the intensity of your workouts, shorten your workout times, and very safely speed up your results. They are designed so anyone can perform them and make great changes on any level. Whether you are a retired grandma or an aspiring Olympian, there is a plan for you.

For the purpose of fitness, there are only eight body parts to  consider:  chest,  biceps,  triceps,  shoulders,  abdominals, back/lats,  legs (which  include  quads,  hams,  glutes,  inner/ outer   thighs),  and  calves.  By exercising  with  squats   or lunges,  you  can  actually  hit  your  hamstrings, quads,  the glutes  (butt),  and  inner  and  outer  thighs  (typical  trouble  spots for women) all with one exercise.
Hit each body part once per week, and you’ll only invest about twenty-four minutes  to get in great shape!  You can add additional lifting to MaxT3, be ridiculously fit, and have done it all in like an hour and a half.  The same or even less time then some people spend in the gym for 1 workout!

Types of Resistance Exercise

 Dumbbell  curl

Performing Quick Sets

Decline Quick Set1. Pick one exercise and do it for eight to twelve repetitions until failure.
2. Rest for five to six seconds.
3. Lower the weight five to twenty pounds and do the same exercise again for six to eight repetitions until failure.
4. Rest five to six seconds.
5. Lower the weight five to twenty pounds again and do another six to eight repetitions until failure
Pause Quick Set 1.     Pick  one exercise and do it  for eight to twelve repetitions until failure.
2.     Rest five to six seconds.
3.     Using the same weight, do it again until failure.
4.     Rest five to six seconds
5.    Repeat this process until you cannot do the exercise for more than one to two repetitions.

Monster Set

A Monster Set is when,  after  performing an  exercise on  one  body  part,   instead   of  resting,  you  immediately perform an exercise on another  body part.  The other  body part  should be one that  was not  used while exercising  the first body part. For example,  combine  chest and biceps, or quadriceps and hamstrings.
Monster Sets are combined  with Decline or Pause Sets so you can get a tremendously effective workout done in a very short amount of time. For example,  after you perform  a Pause Set with the incline fly press for your chest, you can immediately begin performing a Decline Set with  hammer  curls for your biceps.

Reblog – Why Weight Loss Can Be Tough


I can relate to this alot, I keep going up 5 lbs, down 5 lbs.

Refine Fitness Studio

You’re eating the same kind of foods, about the same amount and exercising about the same amount you always have, but suddenly you notice that it’s harder to keep the weight off or lose those few extra pounds.

Nothing has changed you tell yourself, except your a bit older than you used to be. What you may not be aware of is that your body has changed making weight loss more difficult.

Over 40 Weight Loss
As we age, our metabolism slows down which means you are burning fewer calories than when you were younger. There is no magical age in which this happens, but seems to occur more often when people reach 40 to 50 years of age. The secret to weight loss at any age is actually a very simple formula; consume fewer calories than you burn.
The problem is that as we age, we often fail to…

Creating new Healthy Habits for eating, exercising and depression!


Image Reblogged from MotiveWeight.Blogspot.com
We all get stuck in ruts and have times when it is hard to motivate ourselves. How do we keep the interest, create new healthy habits and keep eating foods that are good for us when there is so many bad food choices and it is easier to watch a movie then to exercise? I’ve been in a holding pattern and not doing my exercise and eating too much sugar. I go through this when STRESS enters my life and people that I love try to manipulate me or a death in the family. I recently lost my father and cat of 28 years. So fighting off the depression has been a challenge. The POSITIVE is that I do continue to eat healthy foods mixed in with the bad ones and I keep up with deep breathing meditations for lots of great oxygen to circulate through my system.

I love food, especially veggies and fruits, so I create lots of tasty combinations and do the 6 small meals per day to keep me from grabbing a bag of chips or carton of ice cream. It helps that I snack on small pieces of  85% dark chocolate or Cacoa Nibs – YUM and Almonds are a good snack too.

I have been upping my Vitamin B Stress supplements and Vitamin D as well, I have found through the years that I need more of these just to keep myself from going down the road of doom and gloom.

The challenge is the exercise – which is one of the best things I have found for fighting off the depression. I am looking focusing on creating new habits to try and help me get motivated. I find that I have to up my ratio of happy tunes and movies or shows so that I don’t fall deeper into depression. I have found that using the MaxT3 surge system can be done in small increments of time so that you are on 20 seconds off 20 seconds and you can start with just 5 minutes a day. So currently my goal is to motivate myself and to not expect myself to do more than 5 minutes a day and if I do more great! Part of creating new goals and Healthy Habits is to know when you are expecting more from yourself than you can give. If I set a goal and fail at it, it only adds to the depression and makes me want to eat more Sugar. So I try not to set myself up to fail. But the big question still is what new way can I motivate myself to get off the couch and move my body when the stress/depression has me so tired that all I want to do is sleep. Sometimes a buddy system helps where I help each other because it’s not all about me. I think I will call my buddy and ask her to give me that verbal butt kick to get me moving.

Do You Have Any Suggestions? What are your ways to motivate yourself and create new habits I’d love to hear them! Love, Light and Happiness to you all have a great day/night!
