9 steps to a healthy lifestyle

These are just some basics that have to do with healthy living. The reason I am writing about it is because you can use it to incorporate into your diet plans, to understand how just the basics can help you gain muscle, lose fat or maintain a physique. Sometimes nutrition is the most complicated part of weight training and becoming fit, because like mentioned in my previous article, we’re living on a budget. We don’t always have the luxury to spend money we don’t have, on the foods that we need. It’s unfortunate that the foods most affordable, are the ones that are the tastiest and bad for us. If you’re interested in learning the 9 steps to a healthy diet, that I am going to break down to help make you understand how doing these things can eliminate fats from your diets, and simple sugars, then keep reading!

The art of losing belly fat

I have written about the basics of losing fat, and provided you the frame work you would need if fat loss is in your current or long term goals. The thing about it is that that was sufficient enough information one would need, to base any diet plan or fitness routine geared towards losing weight. The unfortunate thing is, a lot of people online have made an industry out of selling books and e-books that are fully written on the subject of fat loss. I mean, let’s just face it, the world is on a quick spiral down, when it comes to the increase in overweight or out of shape individuals in our current society. Nothing is ever good, when the children of our community are moving more away from physical activities like being outdoors to engaging in the activities that keep them confined in their homes on their video game consoles, in front of the tv or surfing the internet.

Bulking and Cardio

Cardio and bulking? A lot of people would say that they are counterproductive to each other, but in reality it’s good for cardiovascular health and also reducing body fat. I’d have to admit, personally, that I wasn’t much for doing cardio while on a bulk, to maximize my gains, but recently it’s been a necessity. A lot of professional bodybuilders actually incorporate cardio into their bulking phases. The reason I didn’t want to add it is because I felt as if this wouldn’t help and actually hinder any muscle building routine I was on. But the key to doing cardio while bulking, is to make sure it’s minimal and not hours long, as if you were on a cut.

Libido and Weight training

I was asked recently, what affect does weight training have on one’s libido? Does it increase it, or happen to lower it? Not only that but does exercising, period, have any affect at all, also? The reason people ask this is because it’s understood generally, that exercising increases testosterone which in turn will increase one’s libido, at least in men. This muscle building hormone, is also the sex hormone in males. As for females, the same is understood that one’s levels of testosterone would be increased, after such activities as weight training and cardiovascular exercises; like running. If we look solely on weight training, the increase testosterone levels can increase one’s libido. Also, any type of exercise that’s short term, lasting no more than 1 hour (mixed views on this, like if one stays hydrated enough it seems more than an hour is fine), will increase blood flow which in essence will then increase one’s libido. If anyone has ever done, at least as a female, laying curls you’d realize that your pelvis area is being worked out and an increased blood flow does occur. If you use your imagination, you can put two and two together and understand what this process can do, for one’s sex drive, at least in women. Exercise in general, is agreed upon to be a good solution to increasing one’s sex drive. The endurance that comes from it, also will help with one’s sex life. Not only does it have a physiological affect, it[…]
