  • Best Fitness Tips For Good Health

  • Be active daily for mental health Prolonged
    periods of inactivity are often the cause of
    anger, frustration, lethargy and depression. On
    the other hand, those who are active regularly
    experience a better mood, feel more energetic,
    and overall enjoy a better life. 
  • Be active daily for physical health Being active
    does not necessarily mean doing a 25km run daily,
    and nor does it necessarily mean squatting double
    your bodyweight daily. Even lighter activities
    like walking, swimming, yoga, playing with kids,
    cleaning up the house, riding a bicycle, etc are
    all examples of being active. For most people,
    intense activities like weight training,
    sprinting, etc should ideally be kept to about
    3-5 times a week, and on the other days, lighter
    activity is recommended. 

  • Strength train and lift heavy Almost every month
    there seems to some study that comes out with the
    finding that strength training, and Health
    Fitness Tips including lifting heavy weights has
    multiple health benefits. Starting from weight
    management, increased energy levels, better
    glucose metabolism, etc there are many reasons
    why you must strength train. You can strength
    train by using your own bodyweight and lifting
    barbells, dumbbell, kettlebell, etc. Do
    cardio Now cardio does not necessarily mean
    doing painfully long and slow activities like
    distance jogging. It can also be done in a short
    time with intense activities like sprinting,
    circuit training, kickboxing, etc. Infact, the
    intense options seem to provide better results
    overall, in terms of cardio fitness, improving
    body composition, increasing growth hormone
    production, etc. 

  • Maintain healthy bodyweight and bodyfat
    levels The extra fat increases your chances of
    getting a heart attack, diabetes, hypertension,
    etc. Also, I would like to mention that extra
    bodyweight, even in the form of muscle is not
    necessarily healthy in the long run. Whether
    muscle or fat, the extra weight has to be carried
    around by your joints, and at a later age, that
    can really start telling on your joint health.

  • Check your BMI A good way to calculate your
    ideal bodyweight is to use the BMI calculator and
    Health Fitness Tips Now I know that a lot of
    people feel that the BMI is not an accurate way
    to measure ideal bodyweight, but in my opinion,
    unless someone has unnaturally huge muscles
    thanks to steroids, the BMI is a reasonably
    accurate calculator of one's ideal bodyweight.
    Again, it is not necessarily perfect, but is
    pretty close for most people. Maintain ideal
    flexibility and mobility levels Most people in
    their 20's have already lost a lot of flexibility
    that they had when they were 5 years old. So you
    can only imagine how much tighter they will get
    when they are in their 40's and 50's. The good
    news is that it doesn't have to be this way. You
    can improve your joint mobility and flexibility
    levels as long as you work on it. You should be
    able to touch your toes. 

  • Flexibility and mobility workouts Start your
    workouts with 10-20 minutes of joint mobility
    work, and finish your workouts with 5-10 minutes
    of stretching, and focus more on your tight
    areas. You can also do mobility and flexibility
    work on your off days to get in extra activity
    and improve faster. Eat a balanced diet Our
    body relies on a variety of nutrients to function
    properly, and no matter how much someone might
    try to convince you that a particular food group
    needs to be avoided altogether, you will find
    that eating it, even if in small amounts, is
    better. For eg without adequate carbs you will
    struggle to do intense workouts and perform well.
    Similarly a diet very high in protein can cause a
    lot of stress on your kidneys. 

  • Eat a balanced diet I would also suggest that
    you get your nutrients from a variety of sources.
    For example, don't just rely on chicken for your
    protein, eat fish, eggs, red meat, etc. Each
    source offers a different mineral and vitamin
    profile for you to take advantage of. And yes,
    don't forget to intake enough water for optimal
    health. Limit junk food Let's face it, we live
    in a society where we are surrounded by junk
    food, and trying to resist it all the time,
    including when we go out with friends and family
    is likely to drive you nuts. So once in a while
    your little indulgence will not kill you. In
    fact, many experts claim that if 80 of your
    calories are clean, then you can have some fun
    with the remaining 20.
