This is a pretty cool, short, video showing how fitness has evolved over the last century. It’s just a little over a minute long and it starts with easy stretches that were used a hundred years ago and moves through the slightly more difficult stretches used in the 1920, through to the hula hoop fad in the 1950s and the twister fad in the 1960s, Jazzercise in the 1970s, Aerobics in the 1980s, Tae Bo in the 1990s, street dance in the 2000s right up to modern high-energy workouts, like Zumba, which uses a combination of several things like salsa, samba and mambo, often practiced in groups, with people of all ages participating. This video was produced by Benenden Health in the UK.
Some people don’t want to deal with the people and waiting times at a commercial health club. I can understand. Even though I’m a member of a Gym, there are times when I prefer to workout on my own, in the quiet of my own place.
Are you the same way? If you are the type of person that is dedicated to eating right and getting quality exercise each day, but do not need the hassles of a health club, I’m sure working out at home is something that you are interested in.
Here’s a cool home workout you can do. It includes 7 cool exercises you can do at with just two dumbbells, or even two water bottles.
If you like it, share it with friends.
Do you have two chairs and a broom at home?
This guy has come up with a great system for working out at home and saving tons of money on gym fees while also saving tons of money on equipment. I don’t know if it really works, and I worry if these props are sturdy enough, or not. It would not be nice if that broom, or one of those chairs, suddenly broke.
He has does a nice, and a bit funny and cocky demonstration that you should probably check out.
This would probably be great for someone who is already and pretty good shape, but I would think that it would be a bit much for a true beginner.
What do you think about this home workout? Will you give it a try?
Please comment, if you will give it a try and also please like and share it if you think one of your friends or loved ones would benefit by giving this a try.
Wow, these are some tough people. This video shows some cool shots

5 days and features some of the most fit men and women in the world.

them in training. Besides being physically fit they have to be really
mentally fit as well, as they only find out exactly what they will be
doing, just a short time before they have to do it. For some of them,
this is the most difficult part. Whoever wins is known as the most
fit person on earth.
What is the difference between the Paleo Diet and the Primal,
or “caveman” diet? This bright woman is not a professional
dietician, or a doctor, but she is very passionate about the
matter and does a nice job of explaining the differences and
lets you know which one she prefers, and why.

people would have an easier time sticking with, as it is quite a
bit less strict in some areas that are of concern to her. like dairy

For some people, dance workouts can be a great way to burn
body fat and work your heart. This video is a great example
of how it is done. This is a beautiful professional dancer
who has, an especially great, dance workout. This workout
will really get you sweating up a storm. It won’t be easy
and it is not for everyone. You have to already be in
fairly good shape and, if you have any questions about it,
you should consult your doctor. If you are fairly active,
and not too overweight, you should really enjoy this, and
it might be more fun to do it with your friends.
Lots of women want to know how to reduce stomach fat and flab in
other areas of their bodies,and they would not like it to take years of hard
work. It doesn’t have to take years, but it will take some amount of effort.
You have to eat the right things and do, at least some, type of exercises on
a regular basis. The last few pounds can be especially difficult. The body is
conditioned to store some amount of fat for times when there is no food
available. That was a real possibility hundreds of years ago. It is usually
not a problem for most people these days, but the body still performs in
this manner. It burns most of the new foods that you eat, but leaves that
stored fat for later, while, at the same time, adding a little bit to it each
time. If you want to start burning off that stored fat, you need to do some
extra things to help your body to get this fat burned off, getting rid of
any flabby areas that you might have. Here are some ways that you can
get this job done:
* If you are already exercising, exercise longer, and if you aren’t then
start. One easy thing to do is to walk briskly for at least 10,000 steps
every day, the more, the better. I always walk 12,000 steps, or more,
Most experts believe that real fat burning only starts after 30 minutes of
continuous exercise. So, the more you can do, after the 30 minute part, the
better results you will get. Before you do anything too hard, you should
consult your doctor, to make sure that it won’t be a problem. Most people
should not have a problem with brisk walking. Starting is the hardest part.
Once you have already started exercising, its easy to keep going further.
Many experts believe that it is best to start slow and to increase the speed
gradually each day, all the way up to jogging or even running, if your
doctor thinks that jogging or running wouldn’t be a problem for you.
The more you push your body, the more fat your body will burn,
but you don’t want to push your body to hard at first, because it isn’t
use to that. A gradual increase in intensity is the best way to do it.
For high intensity exercises, less time would be required to get the same
* Many experts think that cutting your carbohydrates is also helpful for
target and burning fat. Carbohydrates are what fuels the body. If you give
the body all of the carbohydrates that it needs, then it won’t need to use
any of that stored fat, which isn’t good, as this is what you want it to do.
If it has a shortage carbohydrates, it will have no choice but to burn flab
that is being stored, in order to have enough fuel to do its job. Replace the
lost carbohydrates with other healthy foods like foods that contain fats
and foods that contain protein, in order to keep the body strong, with
plenty of energy. If you eat too little, the body will sense it and go into
panic mode and start conserving energy, which means it doesn’t have
the power to burn stored fat. Some of the thing you need to reduce,
or cut out completely are things like alcohol, most starches, like bread,
pasta and potatoes, most, if not all, sugar, refined cereals and pancakes.
Some fruits are fine, but too much is not a good thing, as they do
contain a type of sugar called fructose. Bananas are especially high
in this sugar. If you find cutting carbs difficult at first, you can stress
by switching to wheat bread, instead of white bread along with brown
rice and sweet potato. in place of regular potatoes. Two of the worst
things are French fries and potato chips.
Many experts are in disagreement on which combination of foods
is most helpful for how to burn belly fat and fat in other areas, but
almost all of them agree that eating the right food is important and,
at the same time, getting regular exercise is of great importance as
well. Try to get into the mindset that you like trying to find the
combination of food that is the best way to burn body fat for you
and get into the mindset that you enjoy exercising and finding the
type of exercise that works best for you. The longer you continue,
the easier it will get. After you have continued for 21 straight
days it will start to become easier. After a full month both the
dieting and the exercise will have become a habit, and it will
be even easier to continue, from that point on. As for cutting down
on the carbohydrates, there are very few experts that would
disagree on the need to do this as one important way of how to
reduce stomach fat and other body fat.
Different foods and different exercises work differently for
different people. Get excited about working to find out which
ones are best for you. If you have any worries at all about
making any diet or exercise changes, make sure and ask your
doctor about in, do some testing and never stop trying to
improve. If you do so, I am sure that you will end up with
that dream body that you want.
Another suggestion is not to check your weight too often,
it can cause stress, and can cause you to give up too early.
Sometimes you do a great job of dieting and exercising one
day, but when you check the scale the next morning, you
haven’t lost any weight, and your fat level is the same.
The body works like this. If you don’t do anything special
that next day, and then get on the scale the next morning,
that is when the improvement shows up. Its better to
check once a week, or even once a month. I would say
good luck, but you don’t need it, you just need to take
action on a daily basis.
