  • Workout Like a girl

  • The best Workout Formula

    With the overwhelming increase of diseases associated with poor lifestyle, many people are knocking at the doors of gyms.

  • How Do Your Muscles Recover After Exercise?

    Although it may seem counterintuitive, recovery is just as important to gaining strength as weightlifting and other forms of exercise. Think about it—if your car breaks down and you only repair 50% of the problem, it’s not going to run very well. The same goes for your body. Continue reading

  • Is it possible to lose weight without dieting?

    Luckily for you, the short answer is yes. It seems like there’s a new trendy diet hitting every month. This one wants you to stop eating carbs. This one wants you to do a six-day cleanse with juice that tastes like it’s been left on your car’s dashboard for week in the middle of summer.

But, you can keep everything in your diet, in moderation, of course, if you follow some of these rules. Continue reading

But, as with almost everything when it comes to your body, there is not one thing you can do or look at that will give you a perfect picture of your overall health. Here are a couple reasons why a great BMI rating might not mean your body is in as good or as bad condition you think. Continue reading

  • Dieting: Sometimes it’s in the genes

    Sometimes life just isn’t fair. You and your friend can go on the same diet and consume the exact same amounts of the exact same foods and he or she might be the only one of you two that drops any meaningful weight. Does this mean you’re not trying hard enough? Not necessarily. Scientists have discovered that the effects of dieting can be heavily influenced by your genetic makeup. Continue reading
