progessive resistance

PROGRESSIVE RESISTANCE

As your muscles adapt to a given exercise resistance (weight), that resistance must be gradually increased to stimulate further gains. The key to strength and muscle development is progressive resistance, which is also called “exercise progression”, or “the overload principle”. This is the gradual and continual addition of weight to the exercise over time, as the previous weights become too easy to lift, so that your muscles are continually forced to work harder and thus increase muscle strength, size and tone.

PROBLEM OF OBESITY

PROBLEM OF OBESITY

When are we going to take action? The World Health Organisation has, over the last 5 years, repeatedly raised the alarm over the rising incidence of obesity and the associated health risks created by this voluminous (pun intended) problem. The incidence of obesity is doubling every 5 years. Even worse is the estimate that up to 20 percent of school age children are obese-not just over weight.

FOOD TO AVOID FOOD TO AVOID

High sugar content foods are well known to suppress the immune system which makes you vulnerable to colds, flu and other infections. There is also the “empty calorie” issue in high sugar foods. They provide lots of calories but few nutrients. And of course, at the risk of sounding like a broken record, there is the issue of an over stimulated pancreas from the absorption of high sugar foods. This over stimulated pancreas means you have too much insulin in the blood. This leads to excess fat storage, hypoglycaemic reactions, inflammatory conditions (asthma, arthritis, psoriasis, eczema, migraines), yeast infections and hormonal imbalances and even depression. If you are interested in or concerned about your health it would be wise to control your insulin.

Belching, passing gas and abdominal bloating with rumbling sounds are the most common symptoms of gas.

FINANCES, RELATIONSHIPS AND MENTAL WELL BEING

The quality of your life is directly related to your standards. A standard is a personal rule or expectation about the level of excellence you require inn something and when you raise your standards you change your life.

In my work as a professional coach, i’ve found that most people haven’t taken time to define their standards. Invariably, they’ve inherited rules from others, leading them to live their lives using someone else’s game plan, if you’d like to improve the quality of you life,considerincreasingyourstandards.

ROAD TO FITNESS

It may seem intuitive that exercising more and eating better will naturally result in weight loss. This generally is true, but with a major caveat. Not everyone will lose weight and it is virtually impossible to tell how much any one person will lose. Most exercise programmes and typical diets result in a weight loss of not more than 3 to 5kg (32); the average “overweight” adult wants to lose 10 to 15 kg! This discrepancy between what people want and what exercise and healthy eating are able to deliver highlights the fundamental problem with using weight loss or reductions in body fat to judge the success of an exercise programme or nutrition plan.

INDIGESTION AND HEARTBURN

Indigestion and heartburn are common conditions following eating too much or not being able to digest food properly.

SYMPTOMS

Indigestion can include nausea, gas, belching, stomach pain, and heart burn. It usually occurs in the two hours immediately after eating. Heart burn is burning pain in the chest behind the sternum, which is associated with the reflux of acidic or caustic stomach fluids into the esophagus. Heartburn may occur after eating any food which stimulates acid production in the stomach, such as proteins, spicy foods, or chocolate.
