How to lose weight before wedding day

Friday, November 15th, 2013

In order to lose weight, there are two paths to be followed by a bride-to-be, either hitting the panic button and achieve nothing or plan out and follow a bridal bootcamp and be at one’s svelte best.

Following are some pointers to plan out the most effective exercise routine for some last-minute relief.

A bride can workout at home, join a fitness studio or a gym.

Whichever way the bride chooses, the ideal package requires a combination of strength/resistance training two to three times a weeks, as well as cardio and yoga/ pilates on the rest of the days alternatively, Andpersand reported.

Most women are conscious of flabby arms, stout thighs or a flabby mid-line.

Therefore, it’s best to concentrate on these trouble spots during the bootcamp routine, where one could opt for pilates, TRX, body combat or yoga for the quickest results.

Why chocolate milk is the best post-workout drink

Wednesday, December 26th, 2012

Chocolate milk tops the list when it comes to fuelling yourself after a hard session at the gym.

This is because every cup of chocolate milk contains between eight and 11 grams of protein.

A study in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition also found that, when taken immediately after exercise, milk-based proteins promote greater muscle protein synthesis than soy-based proteins, Fox News reported.

Finally, another reason why post-workout chocolate milk is beneficial is because cow”s milk contains about 80 percent casein protein content and 20 percent whey protein content.

This is ideal because the whey protein is fast-acting, allowing amino acids to get right into the muscle tissue, while the casein protein is digested slower, providing a steady stream of amino acids over a lengthier period of time.

How to turn walking into a workout

Walking training tips and techniques

We all know how to walk, but how do you turn walking from a way of getting from A to B into a bona fide fitness workout? The number one reason people don’t achieve the benefits they expect from fitness walking is that they simply don’t walk fast enough, for long enough or often enough.

While any amount of walking (classified as a moderate exercise activity) will benefit your heart and general health, you need to approach walking much as you would any kind of exercise programme if you want to achieve genuine and lasting fitness benefits, and that means you need to have a plan of progressive walking training, with specific goals and a set route to achieving them.
