Heavy weight training and Joint Pain

Getting involved in physical activity is an absolutely wonderful thing and highly encouraged because it’s your first step of acquiring that healthy lifestyle that you constantly hear about. I mean, nothing is better than being healthy, right? We hear time and time again, that exercising helps with improving one’s overall health. We are constantly bombarded with different diets, advertisements to join gyms and anything that’s related to developing a healthy lifestyle. Unfortunately though, it seems that joint pain and the discomforts that may come from increasing one’s physical activities, isn’t mentioned. I am positive, that you’ve never associated a healthy lifestyle with joint pain or any type of pain, but in fact, something that is regarded as an improvement on one’s life. Unfortunately though, weight lifting and strength training, along with participating in cardio workouts, can actually cause joint discomfort. Joint pain is a very uncomfortable experience to have, whether it is caused from exercising or other activities. It is something that can prevent us from carrying out our regular daily activities and even slow down our progress in the gym. Now, no one wants their life to be disrupted or their gym time either, but joint discomfort can do just that. I am going to talk about the ways to prevent further joint problems and treating it. But I want to make sure that you are aware of the fact that, if you engage in intense exercises, you WILL experience some form of joint pain but treating this problem[...]

Back At It!

Back in the gym, doing chest and biceps. I wasn’t able to really do an intensive bicep workout, but my chest routine was seriously on point. To the point that I was feeling such a crazy pump in my chest that I have never felt before! I swear, using proper form is everything. It targets the muscle groups you want to, when you are performing a particular exercise, which if you’ve been doing wrong for a while and seeing no gains, is a good enough reason why that is happening.

Anyways, check out this entry and keep following for my other days of training, which include my back and triceps days, some shoulders (will be taking some time off of it because my left shoulder been bugging me), and legs (obviously :))

The other days will include my kenpo workouts, my focus t-25 day and throwing in maybe another kenpo or focus t-25 depending on my mood that day.

Taking time off from the gym

This is a personal entry of mine, where I am just talking about the time I have taken off of the gym recently and what I plan to do in the future in regards to making personal updates that pertain to my own physical goals and my journey towards my ideal physique. I usually have a separate website for this, over at Love My Muscles Fitness, but I am no longer using that site for my personal blogging and would rather keep everything under one roof.

HIT and Weight Training

Most of us will easily admit, that cardiovascular workouts are dreaded workout routines. They are exhausting, provide you with some unwanted feelings, and have you not looking forward to performing them at all. Despite that, they are obviously a very good form of working out, that helps with improving ones cardiovascular health and is an overall healthy form of exercise that should be incorporated into everyone’s fitness routine. The only thing though is, if you’re looking to burn body fat, high intensive training is the way to go and cardiovascular routines that leave you exhausted, panting and sweating buckets, is the best method out there.

Fortunately for you though, you can incorporate your ever beloved weights into a program/routine that yields the same results as the conventional cardiovascular workout but aren’t so dreaded to perform. It isn’t easier, but it’s just much more acceptable to most of us who prefer lifting weights over running or biking.

Focus T-25

Focus T-25 is the new 25 minute workout program created by the same guy who brought you Insanity, Shaun T. If you do not have the time to workout the recommended 60 minutes, no sweat. I have incorporated Focus T-25, at least one of the cardio session, into my routine. High intensive workouts, allow you to exert a burst of energy, in a short period of time that would equate to a long exercise routine. If you can handle 25 minutes with Shaun T providing you an insane workout, at least 5 days a week, you will yield some significant gains that will keep you motivated and on the track to a healthier and more fit, you.
