Get Fit with Fido

Don't just walk your dog—these exercises will get both of you in super shape. Tricia Montgomery, founder of the K9 Fit Club, an exercise program for people and their dogs, is fit and healthy today, and so is her dog. But 20 years ago, it was a different story. "I was morbidly obese and depressed," she recalls, and her dog Louie was suffering too. Then her vet pointed out that Louie was gaining weight, adding: "And you're not getting any thinner." Harsh words. But they galvanized Montgomery into making some much-needed changes. Montgomery had been overweight all her life, and remembers other children taunting her in school, but it had never bothered her as much as this remark did. "I went home and cried and binged," she says. Three days later, she made a life-altering decision. "I realized it wasn't just about me," she recalls. Because dogs mirror their owners' behavior,…

5 Tips For Healthy Living In Your 30s

For some, turning 30 feels like the beginning of the end. Society puts a high value on youth, and the idea of aging is hardly pleasant. However, it’s time to recognize your thirties as the great time they are- a time of growth and a time to hit your stride as a person and in your career. With these tips, you’ll continue to thrive until the big 4-0 comes knocking. 1. Focus On Nutrition Many women are left in the dark about proper nutrition during their 20s.

Tweak your diet to include plenty of fresh fruit and veggies, dark leafy greens and nuts and seeds. Additionally, go get a blood test to check for deficiencies that might cause long-term problems later on.…

The Best Biceps Workout

Here’s the best route to bigger biceps this four-week, six-move supersets workout. So it’s bigger biceps you’re after, eh? There are plenty of fine biceps exercises to try the next time you’re in the gym, but if you’re serious it’s worth adopting a more structured approach. This routine involves superset pairs, which you can substitute for your current biceps plan. Superset Biceps Workout The plan is simple: it’s a six-move workout made up of three supersets. Do the moves in order, sticking to the sets, reps, tempo and rest periods. Do it twice a week for four weeks, aiming to increase the weights you’re lifting every second session. This will consistently keep your biceps muscles out of their comfort zone and expose them to an ever-increasing workload, which is the key to impressive muscle mass gains. The best bit – aside from building bigger biceps – is that you simply…

How To Measure Body Fat

Don’t like feeling the pinch? There’s more than one way to measure your body fat percentage. Apart from looking in the mirror, stepping on the scales remains the most common method people use for checking on the progress of their exercise regime. However, while weight is undoubtedly a useful measure of fitness for many people, it can also be misleading to judge the effects solely by what it says on the scales. If you’ve been hammering away in the gym for weeks on end but the needle on the scales isn’t budging, it could well be because your body fat is being replaced with muscle mass. This could result in your overall weight staying static while your body composition changes for the better, making you healthier. A high body fat percentage is linked with an increased risk of several common health issues, including heart disease, type 2 diabetes and some…

Sculpt A Six-Pack With This Abs Workout Routine

They’re made in the kitchen – but they’re revealed by training smart. Abs Workout Tips Use isometrics “If your abs are constantly in a contracted position it can pull your body into bad posture – so it’s important to strengthen them but in an elongated position,” says Ben Scott, a former professional cricketer turned performance and fat loss specialist. “Planks and other similar holds are ideal, but don’t just hold for as long as you can because your technique will give up way before you do. Short holds, done correctly, are much more effective.” Don’t just hip flex “The old sit-up with someone holding your feet the ground is dead,” says Scott. “It distorts your hip tilt and you’ll end up using your hip flexors to actually do the move, over-activating a muscle that is shortened anyway. Most people know not to do sit-ups for abs, but watch for the…
