Hi Folks, I’m away for a bit today as professional life outside of blogging is taking precedence. In the mean time, here’s a great guest post on quick easy tips on Building and Strengthening your body! I’ll be back real soon with a post I think you all are really going to like. Stay cool out there, it’s over 100 Degrees in some parts of the country!
Build and Strengthen Your Body
The body starts to lose muscle mass as we age. Taking care of skeletal muscles decreases the risk of weak bones, injuries and even incontinence. Appropriate weight training and exercise can increase power, endurance, and strength
Upper body strength
Push-ups are a perfect exercise to work the upper body. Doctors recommend wall and floor push-ups. Try doing 10 on the wall and 10 on the floor every day.
Hire a person to work with you one-on-one. It can be expensive, but you can contract a person for short-term. A trainer can go to your home and create an individualized program that is tailored to meet your needs. He or she can give you great advice as well.
Sculpt the body
Try walking lunges with weights. They increase core strength, flexibility and endurance. An additional benefit is they improve your cardiovascular system. Shoulder stabilizers work the rotator cuffs, which are the muscles that keep your shoulders in their sockets.
Fuel your body
Fuel your body before and after a workout. You must ingest amino acids and carbohydrates that give you the energy you need to form new muscle tissues.
Change of routine
Change your dedicated regimen every two weeks. This prevents you from reaching a plateau. New exercises will help you feel like you are making progress. Options include changing the order in which you do exercises or the types of exercises. Vary your routine.
Deep-water exercises are low impact and you can target several muscles. You can use dumbbells during your routine to develop your muscles through weight resistance. Underwater kicking is a good way to tone the legs. Being in water is therapeutic and relaxing.
You can use free or machine weights. Free weights develop minor and supporting muscles. Machine weights work your core. Play it safe by not using too much weight too soon. Don’t go too fast and target muscle groups.
There are several tips that you can follow to build your body and make it stronger. Start out slowly and change your routine every two weeks. Use your body’s natural resistance or equipment. Have a healthy diet that is rich in amino acids and carbohydrates. Drink plenty of water and avoid sugary drinks. Hire a personal trainer if you can afford it. Another option is to join a gym.
