How to Shop for Clothes that are the Right Fit for Your Body

This is #1 of a 2-part article. To see part 2, and get “the
rest of the story”, click below:Fitness Over 50 – My Sledgehammer Workout RoutineI’ve been pretty consistent at fitness for about 10 years. But in the last year, working out just hasn’t been… working out. I got discouraged and quit. And gained weight. Got flabby. Out of breath. I seriously don’t like myself this way. Kept putting off trying to take action, because the more I tried and failed, the worse it felt. Finally, I just gave up. Last Christmas, Monique got me a gift membership to a gym, because it came with a personal trainer. Didn’t work out – my trainer had good suggestions piecemeal, but couldn’t help me with an overall plan. And he wasn’t really interested in looking at my workout logs to see where I was doing things wrong… or right. To be fair, it wasn’t his job. He was on the floor to ride herd on a bunch of people all at once. More of a ‘safety monitor’ than a one-on-one personal trainer.It turned out for the best.  I can’t depend on anyone else to make me fit.  So I junked all the complicated, convoluted workouts that had evolved in the last 9 years.  Ran across mention of working out with sledgehammers.  Seemed like a good idea.  Just beat on a tire till I’m done.  Simple, at least!My initial sledgehammer came from Sears.  An 8 pound head, with a high-impact yellow plastic handle.  About 2 months in, I moved up to a 10-pound hammer from Home Depot.  The tire was a cast-off from a used tire business.  I explained what I wanted.  They didn’t laugh.  As a matter of fact, the guy climbed up a heap of tires to get this tire, and didn’t charge me anything.  He asked me to let him know how it went. For one of the most embarrassing and humiliating times in my life, Monique took ‘before’ pictures.  She even made me stand sideways so you can’t miss that extra luggage.  My goal was to lose weight and tone up.  Stay strong and injury-proof.  When I started, I weighed slightly over 190, with 38% body fat.  Yes, that’s obese.  Cutting straight to the results:How did it work? Pretty well. After 3 months, I lost 15 pounds, 12% body fat, and have gained some definition of muscle, especially in my shoulders. There’s no bulking-up of muscle like a body builder, but my strength has improved a lot, and my endurance even more.  I feel like I’ve gained functional strength.The workout has been injury-free, a welcome change from weightlifting.  (I keep getting too ambitious when I weightlift.)  Is it a full-body workout?  Is it aerobic?  Yes to both, but since it’s not entirely one nor the other, the results are mixed as well.  Had I focused more on building muscle, I would have bulked up more.  (Assuming previous injuries didn’t sideline me again.)  Had I focused more on aerobics, I would have lost more weight, and built more endurance.  One thing I’ve been very pleased about; the sledgehammer is excellent at working every muscle.  As my strength improved, I tried to add movements that worked the whole body in many different ways.  Being a hybrid workout, the results are some muscle, some weight loss, some endurance.  Now that my 3-month test is over, I have some definite ideas for continued exercise.  The 10-pound sledgehammer seemed like a good idea at the time, but now 12 seems better.  I also want to shorten the overall workout, and include some bicycling or treadmill time for the aerobics.Those changes should allow me to build more muscle with the heavier, shorter sledgehammer workouts, and keep the weight off easier with a more concentrated aerobic effort.I was going to put everything in one hub, but it got to be too long. So the actual workout I used is HERE. It’s broken into video clips of each exercise with the sledgehammer, and descriptive text. If you want to do my exact workout, it’s all explained.To see my workout by the end of this trial, and videos showing how to do each exercise, click here:Fitness Over 50 – My Sledgehammer Workout RoutineThere are plenty of ways to work out with a sledgehammer. A quick web search or youtube search will turn up plenty. Mine started just hitting the tire. As my strength improved, I started adding some variety. Partially to keep it interesting and prevent boredom. But also to keep the workout balanced and use as many muscles as possible from different directions and angles. If you don’t like my workout, pick another, or make up one. Either way, it burns calories and builds strength to move that hammer.When I started, I could only swing the hammer for 3 minutes.  That was it.  The entire workout…  By the end of 3 months, I could maintain a pretty good pace for an hour at a time.  (Yes, I do stop to catch my breath as needed!)  You wouldn’t expect the legs to work too much, but the following day it would always be my legs that hurt the most.  And during the workouts, my legs were often more tired than arms or shoulders!About the weight loss – I now weigh exactly the same as 6 years ago when Monique and I met.  But, back then my body fat was 13%, and now it’s 26%.  So the weight is a bit misleading.  I was fitter then.It was easier to lose weight at first.  The last 5 pounds have been a constant back and forth struggle.This was only a three month program.  If I continue (and I will) I can only continue to improve.  I’d like to continue to lose weight.  I turn 50 in less than two weeks.  This was my “Happy Birthday to Me” gift to myself.  I’ll never look like Superman… but I’ll be happy to look like a very fit Clark Kent.  Less concerned about muscle, than overall fitness and health.Using the sledgehammer definitely improved my fitness, and at first, it also helped me lose weight.  Weight loss became much more difficult after those first few pounds.  I had to change my eating habits to keep losing.  Here’s my normal eating pattern now:Breakfast – 1/2 cup oatmeal with half banana, or some blueberries.Lunch – Home-made protein shake.Supper – Just about any normal meal, but I’ve cut my calories/servings a lot.Some days I’m good, some days I’m not.  But overall, I’m very slowly losing weight.  I count that as a sure sign it’s working right.I do take vitamins and some supplements. Specifically, I take Vitamin E to reduce DOMS (Vitamin
E, Muscle Soreness, and Exercise Over 50) In the last couple of years, my body doesn’t recover after a workout as well as it used to. So recently L-Carnitine and Manganese have been added to my daily supplements. Not sure yet if they’re really helping. After my first month on, I’ll go without for another month to confirm if it really makes a difference.I have some sleep apnea, and a bit of trouble taking a good breath. The fitter I am, the less this bothers me. But recently I began taking Magnesium before bed. It definitely has helped my breathing, with the added bonus that I tend to sleep better.Over time, everybody develops a ‘grocery list’ of injuries and problems.  My concerns were:Right foot – broken multiple times and places.Left Knee – snapped backwards playing frisbee.  (Google it- frisbee is a high-injury sport :^)A dislocated rib that occasionally pops out and has to be repaired.A torn muscle in the right arm that re-tears easily.Most exercise routines (especially weights) either limit what I can do, or I wind up getting carried away and re-damaging these problem areas.  With the sledgehammer, I started off with 8 pounds, then moved to 10 pounds.  After 3 months, it’s time to move to 12.  That’s not a lot of weight, but the long handle of the hammer changes the effort required to move it.  As a result, I get an injury-free workout that still manages to challenge me.  Actually ever since starting, my problem areas are stronger, more flexible, and less trouble than they’ve ever been!Speaking of injury-free… I mean the exercises themselves do not aggravate any previous problems.  If you drop a sledgehammer on your foot, that’s another story.  I did manage to drop a 4-pound hammer that bounced up, hit my knee, and left a huge bruise for a week or two.Moral here – be careful, plan your moves, and pay attention.  I kept a log in order to track progress (or lack) as time passes. It’s a good idea, no matter what your goals are. Be safety conscious. If you hit yourself with it, it’s going to do some damage. If you can’t be careful, it may not be a good choice for you! I am not responsible if you clobber yourself with a sledgehammer… that’s YOUR choice! (okay, that was my nod to legal disclaimers.)Final thoughts:I like exercising with a sledgehammer. It’s different, it feels good (talk about anger management!) and it works. It’s going to be a permanent tool in my quest to stay fit. Do I recommend it? Absolutely!New Xbox 360, Wii,

Nuts for You -Nutritional Facts

Latin name : Litchi chinensis.
Lychee is also written as Litchi. The lychee tree is native to Southern China, Taiwan and the Southeast Asia. In present times, it is widely cultivated in most tropical countries of the world including India.
The tree grows to a height of 30-90 feet. The lychee fruit has a soft jelly like, white, translucent pulp having a mildly sweet flavor and taste. The fruit is covered by a pink to dark red, rough textured, thin skin that can be peeled away easily. The flesh is white and soft and juices very easily. It contains a single dark brown seed with a smooth skin.

In India, litchi is cultivated in Muzzafarpur, Bihar, in North India. Muzzafarpur produces 75% of the India’s total lychee production.
In China, Lychee has been cultivated for over 4000 years. Lychee under cultivation yields about 400 to 800 pounds of fruit per tree. When grown in the backyard the production is a mere 50 to 200 pounds per tree.
© Copyright 2012 Rajan Jolly. All Rights Reserved.
Litchi is very rich in Vitamin C and contains about 72 mg of vitamin C per 100 gms. About 9 lychees will provide the daily requirement of this vitamin to an adult.
It is also rich in copper, phosphorus and potassium and is low in sodium. It does not contain cholesterol.
It provides many Bcomplex vitamins and is a good source of fiber.
The polyphenol oligonol, has antioxidant and anti viral properties.
Lychee is hot by constitution so do not consume excessively. It might lead to skin rashes or even fainting.Lychee is a very succulent juicy fruit. The whole fruit can be put in the mouth and sucked to extract the juice and flavor of the fleshy pulp.
Slices of lychee can be added to other fruits, salads, dressings or as a topping to icecreams.
Lychee juice is a very refreshing summer drink. It is also used to make jams, icecreams, sauces, jellies, syrups etc.
Drinking too much lychee juice can cause certain unwanted side effects. Though lychee juice is an excellent source of vitamin C and a good source of fiber, this very combination can result in abdominal pain and diarrhea if drunk in excessive quantities.
A better way to avoid this is to increase its consumption gradually.
Other side effects noted are chapped lips and inflammatory conditions of the mouth and throat. The probable cause being the acid nature of the fruit.
Sometimes the preparation of the juice is not proper. In this case the seeds which are inedible too get crushed and added to the juice. This happens more with the roadside vendors. Such juice may cause severe distress of the gastrointestinal tract. It is best not to use seeds and to see that all seeds are removed before juicing the lychee pulp.
If the twin issues that of avoiding excessive intake of the juice and ensuring no seeds are crushed in making the juice, are taken care of, then these side effects will not occur.It is a refreshing drink in the hot summer season. Lychee juice provides all the Bcomplex vitamins and Vitamin C that are needed for ensuring optimal functioning of the immune system.
The polyphenol oligonol prevents many degenerative diseases, the potassium regulates the BP and heart rate, the electrolyte levels, removes fatigue and weakness and rehydrates fast in summer.
Litchi juice aids digestion and relieves bodily pains. It also inhibits the growth of cancer cells.
However, lychee juice should never be used as a treatment or medicine without consultation with your doctor.
Select only fully ripe, but not over ripe fruits, for storage. Avoid those that have a dark brown skin. Prefer the ones with a bright pink to red color fruits. Avoid those with cuts or showing mold growth.
Lychee fruit can stay fresh longer if some portion of the stem is allowed to remain attached to it. The fruit stays fresh at room temperature for about 4-5 days and in the fridge for about 1 month. If frozen or dried it can stay good for months.
Lychee helps to treat anemia and the vitamin C counteracts free radicals in the body.
It normalises the heart rate and b;ood pressure thereby protecting against strokes and coronary heart disease.
It reduces weight, improves blood flow and protects from the UV rays and cancer.
It is a natural diuretic and pain due to kidney stone if consumed regularly.
It enhances the energy levels in the body and provides a feeling of well being.

Increased Heart Beat
Drink a glass of litchi juice daily for 8-10 days. It normalises the heart beat.
Brain Weakness & Weak Memory

How an Internet Ponzi or Pyramid Scheme Works, and How You Can Avoid Such a 8-ball Matrix Game / Scam

Searching for and buying phone cards on the Internet considered by many is a crap shoot. Mainly because Internet phone card companies do not advertise in mainstream media, so no one has heard of any good names. Who can blame the phone card industry since TV commercials are expensive and profit margins on phone cards are rather low.
This does not mean however that there is no hope in finding a trustworthy phone card company on the Internet.
I started out on the quest for great phone card companies mainly by trial and error. Because there were no phone card buying guides in existence. I use phone cards to call business associates and the friends I have made during my travels. And thanks to phone cards I have saved lots of money on international phone calls.
But my quest for a reputable phone card company was not smooth going at first. I dealt with a lot of poorly run phone card companies that stocked a lot of substandard phone cards that did not provide the promised minutes. And yes I have been burned more then once by overloaded junk fees. Thankfully a lot of shoddy run phone card companies have gone of out of business.
I have to admit in hind sight I am glad I had that experience. Because now I learned some lessons on what to look out for and what to stay clear away from.
So after 8 years of using phone cards and dealing with many different phone card companies I am going to share with you the important lessons that I have learned.
In this hub you will learn:
3 phone card companies that I use and know you will find reliable as well.
Give you important tips on how to choose the right phone cards.I will give you the links with reviews of the companies that I am recommending or else this hub will run way too long. However, you can watch some short video reviews of each company.
Pointing you in the right direction to some great phone card companies is not enough. I am also going to teach you how to choose the right phone cards. Because knowing which card to choose will make the difference between saving a little and saving a lot.Here are 3 phone card companies I recommend:
Speedy Pin
Nobelcom
CloncomClick on each company name and it will take you to a full review. But as quick overview I’ll give a list of reasons why I trust these phone card companies. We’ll first start off with Speedy Pin which you can watch a short video below.
I get emails from some people asking me why I use so many different phone card companies. My honest answer is I look at different phone card companies like a professional football coach looks at different teams. Each team has their own unique talents, just like the 3 phone card companies I recommend below.Speedy Pin has been providing phone cards to consumers for 10 years. Which is one of reasons why I was attracted to this company. For a company to be around that long they must be doing something right.
They are the only phone card company I know that offers a 100% Guarantee on all of their cards. It means a lot when any company backs there products with this policy.
There were a few occasions where I had missing minutes due to some technical issues. So I made the call to the card company to complain and within a few minutes my minutes were replaced. Had it not been I would’ve stopped using them a very long time ago.
For a full review check out Speedy Pin Phone Card Company Review where you will also learn how to choose the right phone card for your needs.Nobelcom is another company with 10 years of experience in the industry. What separates them apart from the rest is that this company is one of the biggest phone card companies out there. If you want reliability, buy from Nobelcom.
Nobelcom owns and operates their own telecommunications infrastructure. So they are able to upkeep and maintain their own systems to ensure clear quality communications. With the ability to run their own systems, Nobelcom has the capability to brand their own phone cards. By doing so they have created the most competitive rates for calling both land lines and mobile lines.
To read a full review check out Nobelcom Phone Card Company Review where you will also find some information on how to choose the right phone cards for your needs.Cloncom is one of the first phone card company that I have ever used. With 7 years under their belt they have gone far and achieved a fair share of loyal return customer including me.
To me they are a mix between Speedy Pin and Nobelcom where they have a mix of phone cards they brand with their own labels and some they acquire from a wholesale source.
To read a full review of check out Cloncom Phone Card Company Review where you will also find information on how to choose the right phone cards.It’s not enough alone that I show you where the best phone card companies are. Here I’m also going to show you how to choose the best phone cards for you need.
You see, phone card companies carry a mix of phone cards with fees and without fees. This is where most consumers get stuck, wondering which one to choose.
As a general rule of thumb, all phone cards with the lowest call per minute rates come with higher fees. And the phone cards with higher per minute rates have no fees.
The simplest way for you to know which phone card to choose is to decide which answer best fits you:
I will be making a high volume of calls in a short period of time (1-2 weeks).
I will be making a mix of low and high volume of calls on special occasions (2 weeks – 1 year).If you fit the first question then a phone card with fees is the right card for you. I know you’re scratching your head right about now, but phone cards with fees are meant for a high volume of calls within a short period of time. I bet this is the first time you have ever heard of this. But it is true.
Phone cards with fees are loaded with fees that get deducted during your initial call and when you hang up. Then on top of that there is usually a .99¢ weekly maintenance fee tacked on. So as you can see a phone card wouldn’t last too long if you let it sit around with a .99¢ weekly fee. Phone card maintenance fees are automatically deducted from the first use and then each consequent day of the week you first used your card. So say for example you have $3 value remaining on your card and you haven’t used it for 3 weeks you cards value will be zero.
However, if you finish up the card within the week then you will minimize the effects of the fees while still taking advantage of the low call per minute rate.
If you fit the second answer then you better choose a phone card with no fees. Phone cards with no fees are perfect for calling friends and relatives overseas on special occasions such as birthdays, anniversaries and just some general chit chat throughout the year. Since phone cards with no fees allow more of a freedom to use your minutes whenever without weekly fees. However, there are phone cards with .49¢ monthly fees with a decent call per minute rate. It might be a good idea to get this card if you can use it up within that time period.
As you can see there are a mix of strategies that you can use to your benefit. But as a first time phone card buyer it is best to get a phone card with the least amount of fees. This way you can measure your calling habits and make a better decision about which cards you should use in the long run.
In my humble opinion however, it is best to use phone card with no fees.If you are looking to increase your internet speed without any expensive software then you came to right place. I will tell you how to increase your internet speed up to 50%-60 % with few clicks. I have applied this trick to my GPRS dial-up connection and my internet connection speed increased to almost double. Earlier I used to get 2-3 KB/s in Opera download and around 3-5 KB/s in Gigaget download manager. But after tweaking my internet settings I am getting 3-5 KB/s in Opera download and around 5-8 KB/s in Gigaget download manager. Sometimes Gigaget download manager crosses the speed of 12 KB/s. I must say that Google DNS is faster than my ISP and is one the best public DNS server.
For Google DNS setup please do the following. I advise you to write your internet setting information before you make any changes.Right
click on “My Network Places” and
click on properties. This will open “Network
Connections” where you can see all LAN Cards, Dial-Up and Broadband

Knoxville Employment – Nutrition, Dietetics and Internships

As the weather starts to warm up, your nutrition needs are
going to change a little bit. Sure, the basics stay the same – you need to eat
a balanced diet, watch your caloric intake, etc. However, there are some extra
things that you have to pay attention to when the temperatures outside start to
rise.

Here are 10 smart nutrition tips to remember this summer:

1.    Drink water. It is always important
that you get enough water in your diet. Water helps to make all of your bodily
functions work properly. It helps with the digestion of any of the other foods
that you take in. Drinking water helps to keep your energy levels up. It’s
particularly important in the summer since it’s so warm outside. Your hair and
skin can easily dry out in the summer but this problem is prevented (at least
in part) when you drink enough water. Drink the minimum of eight glasses of
water per day. Try to get in other forms of water as well.

2.    Cut back on the caffeine. Not only do
you want to make sure that you are getting enough water in the summer but you
also need to make sure that you’re not getting too much caffeine. Among other
things, caffeine can dehydrate the body, which will negate the positive effects
of all of that water that you’re drinking. You can’t afford to have that
happening during the hot summer months so you should cut back on coffee and
soda. If you can’t stand to only drink water then you can add unsweetened
herbal iced tea and low-fat milk to your diet.

3.    Eat more berries. Your body will be
better capable of storing the water that you’re providing it with if you eat
the right foods. Berries are some of the best foods that you can add to your
diet in the summer. Not only do they assist your body in using water but they
also taste nice and refreshing during that summer heat!

4.    Be smart about your salads. Many people
start to eat a lot of fresh salads during the summer months. This is a great
idea because salads are easy to prepare, don’t require cooking in a hot kitchen
and are healthy for your body. However, you do have to make sure that you’re
using smart nutrition when you eat a lot of salad. The main thing is to pay
attention to how much dressing you put on your salads and what type of dressing
you are using. A fresh dressing made from lemons and olive oil is going to be a
lot healthier for you than a creamy packaged dressing.

5.    Get in your protein. Many people tend
to reduce their protein intake during the warmer months of the year. Your body
just doesn’t crave all of those meats in hot weather. However, you don’t want
to neglect protein altogether. It’s an important part of your diet. Plus, it’s
going to help your hair stay healthy which can be tough in the summer months
with all of the warm weather and chlorinated swimming!

6.    Add vegetables to the grill. One way
that people do get their protein in during the summer is by grilling meat on
the barbecue. That’s great (especially if you’re choosing smart, lean cuts of
meat). However, you shouldn’t neglect the opportunity to get in some other
important nutrition during this time as well by adding vegetables to the grill.
Make some shish kebabs or simply add veggies to the top of the grill so that
you’re getting more than just your protein every time that you barbecue.

7.    Get enough potassium. Many people tend
to be more active in the summer months. There are more hours in the day so you
have more time to get outside and horse around. Unfortunately, sweating during
the summer months can cause muscle problems because it throws off your
electrolytes. You can avoid this problem by making sure that you get enough
potassium into your diet during the summer months.

8.    Eat seasonal produce. There are a lot
of really great foods that come into season in the summer. They help to form
the bulk of your healthy diet at this time of year. Both fruits and vegetables
that come into season throughout the summer will be great for your body. Shopping
at your local farmer’s market is a terrific way to find out which foods are in
season in your area.

9.    Eat fruit smoothies instead of ice cream.
It’s tempting to eat some foods during the summer that really don’t offer the
best nutrition for you. Ice cream is a terrific example of a summer food like
this. Learn to make substitutions so that you’re eating foods that are just as
refreshing
but a lot healthier for you. Substituting fruit smoothing (made from
milk, yogurt and fresh fruit) for your ice cream is a great example of how to
do this.

10. Make sure that your food is fresh. All
of that great nutrition that you’re getting from following these other tips is
going to go right out the window if you make yourself sick by eating foods that
aren’t fresh. This is a particular concern in the summer because the
temperatures get warmer and foods spoil more quickly. Make sure that you pay
extra careful attention to the freshness of meats and seafood. 

Onions are one of the oldest vegetables used by mankind and the health benefits of onions are outstanding, both raw and cooked. Onions are used in a plethora of recipes for curries, stir-fries. Onions are perhaps one of the most universal of all common ingredients. They can be added raw to your favorite salad or homemade pizza, pasta sauce, stir fries or curries. There are huge range of onion varieties, each with their own color, flavor and culinary use – red, yellow, purple, white and green. Onions can be eaten raw, and cooked by sauteeing, steaming, boiling, grilling, barbecuing and roasting, and can be cooked in the microwave. They are frequently used to flavor all sorts of side dishes such as dips, soups, spreads, salads, and various baked dishes.Onions (Allium cepa) belong to the lily family, and are related to garlic, leeks, chives, scallions and shallots. The sharp, strong smell and acidic taste of onions is due to its sulfur compound allyl propyl disulphide.

Salt is indispensable to health but excess of salt or eating the wrong kind of salt gives rise to health problems.
There are many types of salts. Some are mined from the salt deposits left by the dried up lakes and some are procured from the sea water. Some common types of salts are :
Table salt – This is the regular refined salt, that has added chemicals, that we consume everyday in our food.
Kosher salt – This is a large grained irregular shaped crystal salt mainly used for removing as much blood from meat as possible according to the Jewish dietary laws.
Sea salt – This salt is produced from the sea water.
Pickling salt – A very fine salt without any additives used in brines used to pickle foods.
Celtic salt – It is made by solar evaporation of water from the Celtic sea.
Seasoned salt – This is a variety of salts to which herbs are added, like garlic salt, onion salt etc.
Sendha namak (Rock salt) – A large crystalline salt usually used for making ice cream in ice cream machines. Food grade rock salt is available to use in cooking.
Kala namak (Black salt) – A dark reddish black colored crystalline salt that turns a pinkish grey color when ground. It has a distinct sulfurous odor and taste.
According to Ayurveda, Sendha namak or Rock salt is the best salt for eating. The next best is Kala namak or Black salt.
This hub will focus on the last two types of salts – Rock salt and Black salt.
Sendha namak is the Indian name for rock salt. It is a large grained, coarse salt also called halite or land salt and normally available in large bags in most grocery and health food stores. It dissolves readily in water.
Sendha namak is mined from underground deposits of dried up lakes. It is unrefined, non iodized and without added anti caking agents. It is white to pink to blue in color.
This salt is lower in sodium than regular table salt and contains 94 trace minerals as opposed to just 3 of these in the common table salt. As this salt is pure, it is used in religious fasts in India. It does not contain the toxic wastes that sea salt has because of the polluted waters today.
Sendha namak or rock salt is used in Ayurvedic medicines as it treats disorders arising from disturbances in the 3 doshas.
Rock salt benefits the heart, is good for diabetics, prevents osteoporosis, reduces depression and stress, prevents and treats muscle cramps, numbness and tingling sensations, regulates blood pressure, keeps the blood vessels flexible, maintains the correct acid-alkaline levels, helps in digestion, relieves a number of skin problems, benefits in relieving arthritic problems etc.
It is more cooling than sea salt and can be used in small quantities even when other salts have been prohibited.
In India rock salt or sendha namak is used in making chutneys, raita ( a variety of yogurts), chaats, snacks etc.
It lowers the freezing point of water and when sprinkled on ice is used in ice cream making machines. Rock salt is also applied on roads to prevent ice formation on roads in winter and even on ice to make it soft for easy removal.
Rock salt is the best salt for consumption and replacing the common salt with sendha namak completely for those suffering with arthritis will offer them a lot of relief.
Sendha salt (commonly known as rock salt) is more beneficial than other edible salts for patients suffering from chronic kidney disease.
Black salt or Kala namak is a dark brown almost black colored crystalline salt that changes to a pinkish grey powder once it is ground. It is also called sanchal. It has a sulfurous smell much like boiled eggs because of the sulphur in it.
Kala namak is rich in iron and many other trace minerals and is cooling in nature. The dark color is due to its iron content. This salt is obtained from the natural salt mines in Northern India and Pakistan.
Kala namak or Black salt is extensively used in Ayurvedic medicine. It is also used as a condiment in Indian cooking and is added to chaat, chutneys, sprinkled on fruits and other Indian snacks before eating. It tastes great on cut vegetables too.
Black salt is low in sodium. It is also much used in Ayurvedic medicine to treat health issues like indigestion, constipation, bloating, gas, flatulence and heartburn. It is also used to treat goiter and hysteria, poor vision, high blood pressure, anemia,. It ensures proper sodium/phosphorus balance.
Ayurvedic toothpastes contain Kala namak as one of its ingredients.

Latin Name : Ocimum basilicum.
The basil plant is native to India and other tropical countries of Asia. The basil plant is also called sweet basil and is different from the Holy basil plant which is the plant Ocimum tenuiflorum also called Tulsi in India.
Seeds of the sweet basil plant are called sabja, tukmaria, tukhmaria, falooda, selasih etc in India. Sabja or tukmaria seeds are used in Ayurvedic and Siddha medicine in India as well as in Chinese medicine.Photo credit
Photo creditThe sweet basil plant has over 150 cultivated varieties. One variety, the Holy basil or Ocimum sanctum (Ocimum tenuiflorum) is a much revered plant that is considered sacred and much used in religious ceremonies in India.
Basil has been cultivated in Asia including India for over 5000 years.
Sweet basil is an annual herbaceous plant, about 2 to 4 feet in height, has light green colored silky feel leaves that grow opposite each other. The flowers are white in color and borne on a terminal spike.
Sweet basil grows best in a hot and dry climate and is very cold sensitive. Though it prefers full sunlight it can be grown indoors in pots. The leaves may wilt in full sunlight but they soon recover on watering. Excess watering may lead to yellowing of the leaves lower down on the stem. This yellowing can also occur due to lack or excess of fertilizer.
The stems bearing the flower spikes can be pinched off if one needs the leaves or the foliage to keep growing as once the flowers mature foliage production stops on that stem and the stem turns woody.
The flowers produce small, tear drop shaped jet black seeds. The seeds when soaked in water absorb water and swell to many times their original size with a gelatinous covering. They have a bland taste but are crunchy when chewed and provide a jelly like interesting nutty feel and bite.
Seeds of the sweet basil plant are called sabja or tukmaria.
Photo credit Basil contains many polyphenolic flavonoids especially Orientin and Vicenin. These provide the antioxidant benefits.
Brazil leaves are rich in many essential oils like eugenol, citronellol, linalool, limonene, citral and terpineol. These provide antibacterial and anti inflammatory benefits.
Low in calories and free of cholesterol.
High levels of beta carotene, lutein, zeaxanthin, Vitamin A and Vitamin K.
Contains good amounts of minerals like potassium, manganese, copper, calcium and magnesium, and vitamins C and folates.
Excellent source of iron at 40% RDA per 100 grams.
Photo credit Basil seeds have antioxidant, anticancer, antiviral, antibacterial, antimicrobial, antispasmodic, antiseptic, antifungal, carminative, galactagogue, stomachic properties.
The carminative properties are useful in providing relief in a wide range of digestive issues like flatulence, stomach cramps, indigestion, constipation etc.
The antispasmodic property benefits in controlling and providing relief in whooping cough and also gives soothing effects. Also provides relief in respiratory problems like cold, cough, flu etc.
A mixture of basil leaves with honey and ginger is useful in treating bronchitis and asthma. The leaves can be added to water and boiled after grated ginger is added to it. After boiling for a couple of minutes, take it off the heat, cool it for a while , add honey and drink for relief.
Sabja seeds have a calming effect on the brain. They relieve stress, tension, mental fatigue, depression and migraine. They also aid in enhancing the mood.
The antibacterial properties benefit in the treatment of cuts, wounds, and infections of the skin. The seeds can be crushed and applied.
The seeds help in reducing weight. Once the seeds are soaked in water they swell immensely and when this water along with the seeds is consumed before meals it fills one up thus preventing chances of overeating.
The anti inflammatory properties benefit by reducing inflammation, pain and swelling in arthritis, control formation of plaque in the arteries thereby reducing the risk of stroke and heart attacks. They also lower cholesterol.
A glass of soaked sabja seeds when consumed prevents heartburn and also relieves a bloated stomach which results from incorrect eating habits.
When this is taken at bedtime the basil seeds help to cleanse the the body of toxins which are eliminated through the excellent bowel movements eThe shocking truth about your health | Lissa Rankin | TEDxFiDiWomen

Nuts for You -Nutritional Facts

Latin name : Litchi chinensis.
Lychee is also written as Litchi. The lychee tree is native to Southern China, Taiwan and the Southeast Asia. In present times, it is widely cultivated in most tropical countries of the world including India.
The tree grows to a height of 30-90 feet. The lychee fruit has a soft jelly like, white, translucent pulp having a mildly sweet flavor and taste. The fruit is covered by a pink to dark red, rough textured, thin skin that can be peeled away easily. The flesh is white and soft and juices very easily. It contains a single dark brown seed with a smooth skin.

In India, litchi is cultivated in Muzzafarpur, Bihar, in North India. Muzzafarpur produces 75% of the India’s total lychee production.
In China, Lychee has been cultivated for over 4000 years. Lychee under cultivation yields about 400 to 800 pounds of fruit per tree. When grown in the backyard the production is a mere 50 to 200 pounds per tree.
© Copyright 2012 Rajan Jolly. All Rights Reserved.
Litchi is very rich in Vitamin C and contains about 72 mg of vitamin C per 100 gms. About 9 lychees will provide the daily requirement of this vitamin to an adult.
It is also rich in copper, phosphorus and potassium and is low in sodium. It does not contain cholesterol.
It provides many Bcomplex vitamins and is a good source of fiber.
The polyphenol oligonol, has antioxidant and anti viral properties.
Lychee is hot by constitution so do not consume excessively. It might lead to skin rashes or even fainting.Lychee is a very succulent juicy fruit. The whole fruit can be put in the mouth and sucked to extract the juice and flavor of the fleshy pulp.
Slices of lychee can be added to other fruits, salads, dressings or as a topping to icecreams.
Lychee juice is a very refreshing summer drink. It is also used to make jams, icecreams, sauces, jellies, syrups etc.
Drinking too much lychee juice can cause certain unwanted side effects. Though lychee juice is an excellent source of vitamin C and a good source of fiber, this very combination can result in abdominal pain and diarrhea if drunk in excessive quantities.
A better way to avoid this is to increase its consumption gradually.
Other
side effects noted are chapped lips and inflammatory conditions of the mouth and throat. The probable cause being the acid nature of the fruit.
Sometimes the preparation of the juice is not proper. In this case the seeds which are inedible too get crushed and added to the juice. This happens more with the roadside vendors. Such juice may cause severe distress of the gastrointestinal tract. It is best not to use seeds and to see that all seeds are removed before juicing the lychee pulp.
If the twin issues that of avoiding excessive intake of the juice and ensuring no seeds are crushed in making the juice, are taken care of, then these side effects will not occur.It is a refreshing drink in the hot summer season. Lychee juice provides all the Bcomplex vitamins and Vitamin C that are needed for ensuring optimal functioning of the immune system.
The polyphenol oligonol prevents many degenerative diseases, the potassium regulates the BP and heart rate, the electrolyte levels, removes fatigue and weakness and rehydrates fast in summer.
Litchi juice aids digestion and relieves bodily pains. It also inhibits the growth of cancer cells.
However, lychee juice should never be used as a treatment or medicine without consultation with your doctor.
Select only fully ripe, but not over ripe fruits, for storage. Avoid those that have a dark brown skin. Prefer the ones with a bright pink to red color fruits. Avoid those with cuts or showing mold growth.
Lychee fruit can stay fresh longer if some portion of the stem is allowed to remain attached to it. The fruit stays fresh at room temperature for about 4-5 days and in the fridge for about 1 month. If frozen or dried it can stay good for months.
Lychee helps to treat anemia and the vitamin C counteracts free radicals in the body.
It normalises the heart rate and b;ood pressure thereby protecting against strokes and coronary heart disease.

Hypocalcemia: Calcium Deficiency and Calcium Rich Foods


High LDL cholesterol levels are linked to the development of atherosclerosis, the underlying cause of coronary heart disease (CHD). Numerous clinical trials have shown that reducing LDL can lower CHD risk (1). Furthermore, epidemiological and clinical studies indicate that a diet rich in fruits, vegetables, unrefined grains, fish and low-fat dairy products, and low in saturated fats and sodium lowers the risk of CHD and hypertension (2). There are some foods that contain ‘protective’ components, which are thought to reduce heart disease risk, primarily by acting on blood lipids. In this article, some of these foods/food components including soluble fiber, phytosterols, nuts, soy protein, and a few others will be discussed.
Observational studies found that diets high in dietary fiber are associated with reduced CHD risk. Dietary fiber is a plant substance that does not get digested in the human small intestine. There are two types of fiber based on their solubility in water: soluble and insoluble fiber. Oats, psyllium, pectin, flaxseed, barley and guar gum are all common sources of soluble fibers. Cellulose, lignins, and wheat bran are insoluble fibers (1). Dietary fibers are a safe and practical way to reduce cholesterol. Only soluble fibers can lower LDL cholesterol, whereas insoluble fibers do not have this effect. Studies have consistently shown that consumption of soluble fiber can modestly reduce LDL by about 5% to 7%. A meta-analysis of 67 trials demonstrated that intake of soluble fiber, 2-10 g/day, was associated with a small but significant 7% reduction in LDL. All types of fibers including oat, psyllium, pectin, and guar gum, could produce this effect. It is not fully understood how these different types of fibers produce their effects. One important mechanism is the binding of bile acids. This leads to heighten bile acid synthesis (which requires cholesterol), decrease in liver cholesterol content, increase in LDL receptors, and increased LDL clearance. Other potential mechanisms include fiber’s ability to increase the viscosity of the intestinal lumen and slow nutrient absorption, entrap cholesterol in the small intestine, and enhance satiety resulting in lower energy intake (1).All plants make sterol compounds, also called phytosterols, which are chemically related to cholesterol. The main natural source of plant sterols is vegetable oils such as Tall pine-tree and soybean oil. It can also be found in various nuts. Phytosterols can be hydrogenated to give stanols. Both plant sterols and stanols can likely lower LDL to the same degree. There are now numerous studies demonstrating that plant sterols/stanols can decrease LDL by 6 to 15% taken at dosages of 2 to 3 g/day. A more recent meta-analysis of 84 trials reported that consumption of an average of 2.15 g/day of sterols reduced LDL by 8.8%. Mechanism wise, phytosterols fight with cholesterol for space within bile salt micelles (small aggregates of bile salt, lecithin, cholesterol, that are involved in lipid transport and absorption) in the intestinal lumen, thus reduces cholesterol absorption. Another possible mechanism is that plant sterols likely interact with intestinal cell transporting proteins to direct cholesterol back into the intestinal lumen (1).

There can be potential adverse effects of phytosterols in certain patients who are high absorbers, for instance in patients with sitosterolemia. This is a rare autosomal-recessive disorder, characterized by increased intestinal absorption and decreased biliary elimination of all sterols, including plant sterols as well as cholesterol. These patients have mutations in the transporter proteins, ABCG5 or ABCG8, which regulate the export of sterols from liver and intestinal cells. This condition leads to high blood levels of plant sterols and cholesterol, which can contribute to premature atherosclerosis. The role of dietary plant sterols in the development of atherosclerosis is unclear (1).

Nuts are often considered unhealthy because of their high fat content. However, studies have shown that increased nut consumption is associated with a lower risk of heart disease. Nuts are rich in mono- and poly-unsaturated fatty acids, and also contain dietary fiber, phytosterols, and polyphenols. All these components likely combine to reduce LDL. A review of 23 clinical studies investigating the effects of nuts on cholesterol levels concluded that consuming roughly 50-100 g of nuts at least five times per week may reduce LDL between 2-19% in normal and individuals with high blood lipids (2). Subjects in the studies consumed nuts (including almond, peanut, pecan nut and walnut) as part of a heart-healthy diet with 35% of energy from total fat content (a moderate fat diet), consisting of mainly monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats. In a more recent meta-analysis of 13 trials, the authors found that diets consisting of walnuts (30–108 g/d) resulted in a 6.7% greater reduction in LDL compared with the control diet (1). Trials using smaller amounts of walnuts demonstrated more modest lipid improvements. Taken together, there is considerable evidence supporting the LDL lowering effects of nuts.
Epidemiological studies from Asian nations showed that large consumption of soy products is associated with a lower incidence of high blood cholesterol and CHD. A meta-analysis of 38 controlled clinical trials in 1995 found that an average intake of 47 g/day of soy protein decreased LDL by 12.9% (1). The cholesterol lowering effect was greatest in subjects with the highest initial level of cholesterol in their blood. A more recent (2008) meta-analysis of randomized controlled trials in adults with normal or moderate high blood cholesterol confirmed that consuming modest amounts of soy protein, 25 g/day, can reduce total cholesterol and LDL. The percent LDL reduction is about 6% (2). The current data indicate that soy proteins can produce a small reduction in LDL. The mechanism by which soy decreases cholesterol is not fully understood. Soy contains phytoestrogens (isoflavones), which have weak estrogenic and antiestrogenic properties. In the past, scientists were not certain which of the soy components, the isoflavones or the soy protein, was responsible for the cholesterol-lowering effect. Recently, a study concluded that isolated isoflavones in capsules do not affect blood cholesterol. Thus, current evidence supports soy protein, rather than isoflavones, as the component responsible for lowering cholesterol. However, there may still be other active chemicals in soy waiting to be discovered.
Dark Chocolate
Cocoa, a food rich in flavonoid, may have a role in the prevention of cardiovascular disease (CVD). One study showed that cocoa power at doses from 13 to 26 g/day reduced LDL levels in subjects with a baseline LDL concentration ≥ 3.23 mmol/l (LDL levels that are near ideal) (2).
Fenugreek
Fenugreek is a herb that may help lower blood sugar levels in diabetics. One randomized controlled clinical trial showed that fenugreek seed reduced total cholesterol and LDL by 13.4% and 15.1%, respectively. Additional trials are needed to establish the safety and cholesterol-lowering efficacy of fenugreek products (2).
Cinnamon
Cinnamon, a popular spice, can decrease total cholesterol and LDL levels in diabetic individuals. Further trials are needed to confirm cinnamon’s ability to lower blood lipoprotein levels (2).
Black tea
Epidemiological studies suggest that regular tea consumption is associated with reduced risk of CHD. One small clinical trial showed that consuming five servings of black tea daily reduced total cholesterol and LDL by 3.8% and 7.5%, respectively in adults with mildly high cholesterol levels (2). Garlic
Since ancient times, garlic has been used medicinally to enhance physical and mental health. It is thought to have lipid-lowering properties by decreasing cholesterol absorption in the intestine, and inhibiting enzymes involved in cholesterol synthesis. Two meta-analysis of randomized controlled trials, done in 2000 and 2009, found that garlic can modestly decrease total cholesterol, without a significant effect on LDL levels (2).

*Some research has been done investigating the effects of these specific foods or its components on cholesterol levels. More clinical trials are needed to make a conclusion on the effectiveness of these foods/food components in lowering LDL values.

Note: Including dark chocolate, cinnamon, fenugreek, garlic and black tea into the diet may also help to reduce cholesterol levels.
In summary, there is current and ample evidence indicating that soluble fiber, plant sterols, soy protein, and nuts definitely have a modest LDL lowering effect. The FDA has allowed a health claim to be attached to these foods, declaring that they can reduce CVD risk through lowering LDL. The other foods, including dark chocolate, fenugreek, cinnamon and black tea, do not have substantial data supporting theWhite Chocolate Pringles and Holiday Gum! – Food Feeder

5 Proven Internet Marketing Methods That Generate Targeted Website Traffic

There are many factors that can effect wireless network performance and can make using wireless seem slow. Correcting these issues can improve the performance of your wireless connection and make it faster. We will first take a look at what can negatively effect the wireless speed and in each section below offer ways to fix the performance issues.
These factors can negatively effect the performance:
Interference or Network Congestion (Radio Frequency Interference)
Environmental Issues (Construction materials and objects within the house)
Distance (Actual distance between the router and the wireless device)
Encryption (If and what type of Encryption is selected)
Wireless Operating Mode
When it comes to interference, it can come from a number of different consumer electronic devices. One of the most common culprits are the older 2.4 gigahertz cordless phones. In some severe cases the Internet won’t work while you’re on the home phone using a older cordless phone. Wireless speakers, wireless cameras, baby monitors, microwave ovens and even other wireless networks, such as a neighbor’s can compete for the same airwaves causing interference or wireless network congestion.
Interference can also be caused by simply having another electronic device too close to the wireless router itself. If the wireless router is sitting on or very close to a TV or sub-woofer speaker, or other electronic device, it can cause interference. In fact, in some cases if the router is to close to the wall and power is running inside the wall, that can cause issues. This is especially true if that power line is feeding fluorescent light bulbs.
Interference and congestion cause Interruptions in the wireless broadcast causing the router and network adapters to constant have to repeat the same Information over and over. This is what makes the wireless network seem slow.
What can I do about Interference or Network Congestion?
Well, the obvious answer is that you can increase the distance between the offending device and the router or power down the offending device and no longer use it. That might be a little extreme in some situations. The other thing you can do to compensate for the interference is change the wireless channel that the router operates on. You would need to login to your wireless router to make changes to the router settings.
When you change the wireless channel on the router, the wireless adapters in all the connected devices automatically tune to the new channel. Technically there are 14 channels, but in North America, we are only permitted to use channels 1 through 11.
Most routers manufactures use the default setting in the router to use either channel 1, 6 or 11. Although you are free to use any wireless channel in that range, the reason why is 1, 6 and 11 are most popular is that it is the most number of channels, in that range, that do not overlap each other.To select the best channel, you can randomly choose one and then see if the performance improves. If you determined earlier that you think it was from a old 2.4GHz phone, see if the phone works properly now without static on the line while using the wireless at the same time. You can also check for a improvement by running a speed test to see if your data transfer rates increased.
I want to check to see what channel other wireless networks in the area are using so that I can avoid wireless congestion, how can I find out?
One of my favorite (and free) tools is a smart phone app for both the Android and iPhone. It is called WiFi Analyzer. It will show you a constantly updating chart of the competing wireless networks in your area, the strength of the network and what channel it is tuned into through your phone. Sliding the screen enough to the left or right will bring you to a screen full of “star graphs” where it will recommend the best channel based off of other wireless networks in the area are using. It shows the network names, the channel that they are using and the strength of that network.
If you do not have a smart phone, there is also a excellent WiFi scanner that does the pretty much the same thing as well, called Meraki WiFi Stumbler. It runs within most computer Internet web browsers.Environmental factors can effect the wireless transmission include the construction of the house and objects within the house. Wireless signals do not transmit well through concrete, metal or water. If the house or an object within the house made of one of these materials and is in line of sight from your wireless router to your wireless device, it will impact the performance.
If the walls are made of concrete block (maybe in a garage converted to a bed room) you will most likely have a signal degradation issue trying to use a wireless device with the router in another area of the house. Some newer construction uses metal studs in place of wood studs within the walls and some older homes with plaster walls may have chicken wire in them. Neither situation would be ideal for wireless.
What can I do to improve the wireless environment?
As a rule of thumb, usually having the wireless router centrally located in the house is ideal. Also the higher up your wireless router usually the better. If it’s on the floor or under a bed with metal box springs, under a pull out couch, things like that it will not transmit as well is that was on the table or preferably on top of a bookcase.
Often times, the modem was installed in a corner of the house and it is not practical to run a Ethernet cable through the house or the wireless router is built into the modem. You could check with your ISP (Internet Service Provider) to see if they can relocate it for you. Often there will be a charge for this to be done.
If your wireless router has a external antenna or antennas and if they are the removable kind, make sure they are screwed on finger tight. Some wireless routers that have removable antennas also offer higher gain performance antennas to connect instead of the stock antennas.
Since you can not see the wireless signals you have to imagine how the are flowing off and back to the antenna. They transmit and receive from the sides of the antenna. In most cases it’s best to have the antenna pointing straight up and down. If you are having trouble with a room on another floor in the house, it might help to put the antenna at a 45 degree or 90 degree angle.
If your router has an internal antenna (common in modem/router combo units) you might get better performance of the modem with the device standing up tall vs. laying down or turning it slightly one way or the other. By changing the direction of a router with internal antennas, you are changing the positions/directions of those internal antennas. Unfortunately, the only way to tell the optimum placement, no matter the design, is to adjust the placement, check the results and repeat.As you move farther away from your wireless router the signal gets weaker and weaker until there is no longer a connection. The weaker the signal, the more the transmission gets lost and the devices have to constantly re-communicate. It makes your wireless slow. Obviously the closer you are to your router, the more performance you will notice.
Also in a weak signal environment, make sure that you are truly connected to your wireless and not a neighbors. Seems obvious but it is often overlooked. Sometimes I have seen where there are two wireless networks in range both with the same name, such as “Netgear” for example. The person I was assisting was complaining about a slow or weak wireless connection and they were connected to their neighbors open wireless network.Why is encryption really needed if it is going to negatively effect the wireless performance?
Leaving your wireless with no encryption (called a open network) allows unknown people within range of the wireless to connect and use the bandwidth you are paying for. As they are using a portion of your bandwidth or speed, this will result in a slower browsing experience for you and is very risky. Even worse, you do not know what they are doing when connected to your Internet connection. Keep in mind that they are feeling anonymous. If they are searching for or conducting illegal activities, it shows that it is associated with your Internet account, your address and your name.
Don’t put yourself in a situation that you have to prove yourself innocent. It could be a very bad situation that you can easily avoid.
Also, even if unintentional, the unauthorized person connected may have a virus or malware on their system that they are unaware of. That virus can spread through the network of computers in your house and out through your Internet account. This can cause slower Wi-Fi performance as well.
It can also result in generating a lot of spam mail through your Internet account. As you can see, it is not a good idea to go unprotected to save the small performance hit. Encryption is a necessary evil for wireless networks.

How to Get Fit Fast and Transform Your Body

The 30 Day Squat Challenge became an internet sensation in early 2013 and it continues to have a strong presence today. The point of this challenge is to get people to commit to completing a set number of squats each day for 30 days straight. The first day begins with 50 squats and the last day ends with 250. There are rest days throughout and participants can divide the squats up into different parts of the day if they would like. Ultimately, the goal is just to get people moving and to challenge their bodies a little more.
Fitness Blender saw this challenge reach a large audience and decided to tweak it a bit. If you are new to Fitness Blender, it’s a site created by a couple, Kelli and Daniel, that has free workout videos and other fitness tips (read more at Fitness Blender Review: Get Fit for Free at Home). In the Fitness Blender Squat Challenge, viewers are taken through ten different variations of the squat. Daniel and Kelli explain that doing these different variations of squats targets different muscles which leads to a better bottom and legs!
I’ve
taken on both challenges and wanted to provide my insight into both. Below, I have given a more in-depth view of each challenge and what you can expect from them. No matter which squat challenge you take on, remember that any exercise is better than no exercise at all!The 30 Day Squat Challenge focuses more on the number of squats you do than anything else. If you have never done a squat before, I encourage you to consult YouTube for a quick tutorial to make sure you are performing the exercising properly. You can start this challenge at any point, so choose a day to start and find a way to motivate yourself to complete the set number of squats each day.
In the table below, you will find the number of squats you should do during the first ten days of the challenge. You will notice that you have three days in a row of completing the exercise and then one rest day. I encourage you to take those rest days from the challenge, especially if you are new to working out. We all need to give our muscles time to recover! You have full control to do the 30 Day Squat Challenge however you want, but I really want you to think about how effective it is to do one squat and then take a break. Do you think that your muscles are being pushed by doing this? Probably not.
As much as you may want to take a break once your muscles start to ache, I encourage you to push a little harder and dig deeper. It’s okay to feel some soreness in your legs when you’re completing these squats. What you don’t want is to feel a sharp sting in a muscle or tendon as that could be a sign of an injury.
Remember, our muscles have to tear in order to get stronger. Pushing yourself during your workout is going to give you better results. If you want to make the 30 Day Squat Challenge an effective workout, you’re going to have to endure some leg fatigue. I’m not saying that you won’t get to a point when you need a break, but just make sure that you aren’t taking one too soon.Time is precious these days – I get it. I also understand that sticking to a workout regimen for 30 days straight can also be daunting, but here’s something I’ve discovered about the 30 Day Squat Challenge – it’s a great way to make working out a part of your regular routine! I feel like a lot of people blow off exercise because they can never find the time to do it. In reality, we all have a few minutes here and there that we can dedicate to making ourselves look and feel better.
In my opinion, the 30 Day Squat Challenge opens up our eyes to the breaks in action we have throughout our day. Anyone can look at these tables and say, “I have time to incorporate 100 squats into my schedule.” When I did this challenge, I found myself doing squats when I was deciding what outfit to wear! Be creative and make completing this challenge a priority. If your health isn’t enough of a motivator, find some inspirational quotes and put them by your bed or on your bathroom mirror so that you see them daily. No matter what, just stay focused and tell yourself that you can do this!When I began the 30 Day Squat Challenge, I wasn’t completely out of shape. I found that completing these squats each day did help build some leg muscle, but I knew I would have to do more to get the results I was really looking for. Don’t get me wrong – squats are a great exercise and I am definitely glad I took part in the challenge, but I knew that I would have to be more sore than I was to get better results.
Keep in mind that everyone’s bodies react differently to exercise and we are all at different levels of activity. If you haven’t worked out in awhile, this is a great way to get started again! As I stated previously, this challenge, for me, was more about getting into the routine of working out and finding the time in my schedule. I no longer have excuses for not working out. Since completing the 30 Day Squat Challenge, I feel more motivated to workout and make time so that my body stays healthy and toned.Now that you have an idea of what the 30 Day Squat Challenge is all about, I want to switch gears and introduce you to Fitness Blender’s Squat Challenge. Before you dive into this section, I want you to forget about the format of the last challenge and begin with a clean slate. Why you ask? Well, Fitness Blender has incorporated its challenge into one 8:27 video. That’s right – there’s no 30 day commitment here. Instead, you are taken through ten different types of squats so that all of your different leg muscles are being focused on.
Fitness Blender’s Squat Challenge is great for beginners and experts alike. If you are short on time, you can complete 100 squats in eight minutes by following this video. Have more time? Try going through the video a couple of times.
Unlike the 30 Day Squat Challenge, this one should trick your muscles a bit because you are using a variety of muscles and motions. I remember completing this workout for the first time and feeling sore after because I wasn’t used to do so many different kinds of squats in one workout! I’m all for doing your own thing and making a workout routine work for you (like the 30 Day Squat Challenge), but I have found Fitness Blender to be one of the best workout sites out there. The reason? Their videos walk you through each exercise and tell you how to perform them properly. If you watch the Fitness Blender Squat Challenge video above, you’ll hear Daniel talking to you about form and where you should be feeling the exercise. For example, he mentions your range of motion when the plie squats are performed.
Another plus about Fitness Blender videos is the fact that they show the estimated calorie burn from the workout. Keep in mind that these numbers can fluctuate depending on your weight, height, and other body measurements. Use these numbers as an estimate to gauge just how much you might be burning.
I find Kelli and Daniel to be very motivating, especially when my muscles are screaming at me to give up. They are also great leaders and guiders through the workout routine. Squats are one of those exercises that can be done wrong very easily, so having someone to watch and tell you how to do your form properly is an added bonus.So, which challenge is right for you? The answer – it depends. If you are new to working out and feel like you need a structured program to get you started, then I suggest trying the 30 Day Squat Challenge. On the other hand, if you’re looking to build more muscle and challenge your abilities a bit more, I encourage you to take on Fitness Blender’s Squat Challenge. Both programs have their benefits, so do the one that you feel is going to fit your needs the best!
