How To Improve Your Wellness Using Bodyblade

I wonder why it has taken me long to write a bodyblade review yet I started to become the manifestation of a Krispy Kreme donut long time ago. From the bodyblade review website, bodyblade was established to address the dynamic stabilizers of the spine, offer a stable platform for rehabilitation, fitness enhancement, sport performance training, as well as, personal training regimen. Its existence has resulted in improved wellness, function and muscle definition. The Bodyblade review is necessary because the exercises taken in Bodyblade use the movements made by athletes in competitions, and it helps train your body execute controlled faster moves. Bodyblade also enhances muscle tone where muscles are made to resist its movements, and this helps improvement of the muscle tone in a short time.

Why would you call it a bodyblade scam when it only costs $159.00 USD (+ shipping) for the Pro Kit only with all these benefits? Some people blame it for false advertising when they claim that the models in the commercials have nothing to do with the device. In this bodyblade review, it is important to understand the meaning of improved wellness in this context. It is difficult to gauge improved wellness of a person, and hence, any device that is said to be able to improve the well-being of a person becomes questionable. That is why am referring to this as a bodyblade scam. It does not mean bodyblade has no benefits. Bodyblade trains you to remove an annoying traffic sign through its back-and-forth motion. It also helps uproot a tree in your yard easily.

Why use bodyblade?
Its system is portable and lightweight. This means you can lift it around and easily shift it from one place to another.

Its disadvantages
It is expensive. You will need to dig deeper in your pockets in order to buy it.
It might take a large space in your basement.

Does BodyBlade Scam Its Users?

Body Blade Exercises

Here are some great Body Blade Exercises that beginners will want to try from a Body Blade Video review to determine if they believe the BodyBlade scam rumors:

Currently thousands of people use the BodyBlade exercise system at home and in the gym, but is it a BodyBlade Scam? Plenty of people consider purchasing the system each day, too. It ranges in price from $80.00 to $160.00 on average which is reasonable for a piece of fitness equipment. With that in mind, other exercise systems are more affordable for consumers. Does this system produce results for exercisers, or should it be renamed the BodyBlade Scam?

Vibration Training

The BodyBlade provides resistance during exercises because it’s bendable in various ways creation vibration. For instance, each blade bends outward during a swing, so the user needs to exert more force to bring it back to their body. Such resistance can range from a few pounds to over 20 pounds. In theory, these “blades” should strengthen the body when used properly.

Unfortunately, most people won’t see noticeable results no matter how hard they try. The Body Blade scam is a reality for most users, especially those in decent physical condition. The blades don’t provide enough resistance to actually make a difference. In fact, a person could just swing their arms around and get a similar workout in my opinion.

However, BodyBlade can produce results for individuals going through physical therapy. Someone with a weakened muscular system can benefit from the BodyBlade system because it does provide some resistance during training. Enough resistance is created to help a person rehab muscles after an injury or surgery. Otherwise, Body Blade will do next-to-nothing for the average person.

Gym Program

Thousands of consumers will continue to purchase the BodyBlade. Sadly, these types of exercise systems catch on because they seem easy to participants. The reality is that improved strength, endurance, and muscle comes only from hard work. Those looking for results should stick to a proper diet and strenuous exercise for that reason.

Top Indoor Activities in the Winter Season for Women

Here are some of the top indoor activities in the winter season for women.

Yoga

As they say, yoga is not only great for the body, but also for the soul. The benefits of yoga are therefore not only physical, but also mental. First of all, yoga strengthens our musculoskeletal system and therefore not only our muscles, but also our joints and ligaments due to the amount of stretching involved. Contrary to what most people believe, yoga is a great workout and a great activity to tone our body and build muscles. What’s more, Yoga is a bit like meditation, and is therefore a great way to turn our minds off.

Spinning

One of the greatest ways to tone our legs is to go spinning. Spinning helps us to build up our muscle endurance and expand our lung capacity. It is of course a cardiovascular exercise and helps to burn fat, and increase our heart rates.  This exercise, just like yoga, can help in improving posture and is therefore beneficial for those of us suffering from long office hours and a bad posture in our office chairs.

Swimming

Another great indoor activity is swimming. Swimming contributes to the alleviation of arthritis symptoms by stretching the sore joints and therefore improves flexibility.  Swimming is also an aerobic activity and therefore also strengthens the heart and additionally relieves asthmatic symptoms. For those of us interested in losing weight, this exercise is the biggest calorie burner out there.

Dancing

Whether Zumba, or Hip Hop, Aerobics, dancing is probably one of the most fun activities out there. The cool thing about it as that learning choreography is a kind of training for our brains because of the process of memorization, and of course the improvement of physical co-ordination skills as well. Most dancing activities involve a great deal of aerobic activity, because usually there is a whole lot of movement involved, which makes this workout great fun, a great for our hearts.

‘Tis the Season to Eat Comfort Food

‘Tis the Season to Eat Comfort Food

With summer having left the building, (although not that many of us heard it knock in the first place), it is now officially the season of comforting food. Autumn combines grey skies and plentiful food supplies and it’s a great time for a whole range of warm, filling comforting recipes. Not traditionally known for its focus on diet friendly cooking, autumn is a time for stocking up our cupboards and our bodies. In the darker, colder months we all need to keep our energy levels up and while it’s important to eat healthily at all times of the year, this time of year can provide an excuse or two for adding a few extra calories to our plates. As long as you keep an eye on those portion sizes, autumn is a good time to bring into play the old say ‘a little of what you fancy does you good’!

Smashing Mash

For perfect mash every time all you need is a little milk and butter, which does sound a little fattening! It probably is, but a little is the key word here. Once you’ve softened your potatoes mash them with a dash of milk and a knob of butter, plus salt and pepper to taste. Give a final blitz with a whisk to create the perfect, filling, tasty and comfort-food mix. If you really don’t care about the calories add cheese to create cheesy mash.

Perfect Pie

Chicken pie is not only a classic food it’s a great make-do-and-mend dish; it often features as Monday’s Tea, as a way to make Sunday’s leftovers earn their keep. If you’re splashing out on a chicken especially for the pie you’ll need a medium sized one. If you’re being sensible and efficient get a big one for Sunday and don’t let the kids see where you’ve hidden the leftovers. The chicken should be combined with some onions that have been fried off, steamed vegetables, carrots and/or leftover vegetables from the Sunday roast are a great idea. Pastry, unless you’re a die-hard cook, can be bought and rolled out but the classic white sauce should be home-made. Two ounces of butter, two of plain flour and half a pint of milk should be enough to make a good quantity. Place chicken, veg and sauce into your pastry casing, top with more pastry and bake for around twenty five minutes.

Pancake-tastic Breakfasts

A comforting winter addition to the breakfast table is the home-made pancake. Obviously we’re not talking the Monday-Friday breakfast table here. Although simple to make pancakes fall under the “faffy” section in most peoples’ minds, with fairly good reason. For a warming winter twist, add a dash of ginger to the recipe, which adds an unexpected kick. Essential for happy families and a messy kitchen is a good smothering of maple syrup. Again, not exactly calorie counting friendly, but Monday-Friday breakfasts are for that; we all deserve a treat at the weekend!

Bonfires and Bangers

With firework displays and outdoor Christmas markets pressing upon us, one great dish for parents faced with not only their own but several lucky friends and neighbours kids to cater for, consider a mass batch of Toad in the Hole. The big advantage to Toad in the Hole is that it’s not exactly a high-octane cooking event. For large batches it’s best to use several baking trays. The batter recipe is basically the same as Yorkshire pudding batter and can be found easily online. For large quantities use 5 eggs per tray and scale up the other ingredients to match. Ten sausages should hopefully be enough per tray, and once the batter is ready and the oven heated to around 220C it takes no more than 30 minutes to cook. Onion gravy is a welcome addition in most cases. It may be calorie filled and cheap but it is very definitely cheerful!

All of these dishes contain a healthy dose of dairy products, particularly milk, which is a great source of calcium and vitamins for growing bodies. While not exactly low on calories skimmed milk and healthier butter alternatives can be added, without compromising on taste or essential goodness. Dairy products, carbohydrates and protein filled pies may not sound exactly good for your diet, but at this time of year a little comfort food can help your body to build your immune system and keep you healthy.

Top 5 Dieting Mistakes To Avoid

While starting our fitness plan and regime – the first mistake we make is of becoming ambitious! We want quick results. However with some early success, sooner or later we come to a point where there is no progress at all; or on the contrary, we start to gain weight instead.

You might start to believe that the diet plan was not for you or you might just blame the equipments for not working on your body. But wait a minute, was it really the plan that didn’t work or was it YOU? It could also be some common mistakes people make while going on diets. Here are some common mistakes that render the dieting plans as ineffective, make sure you aren’t committing them! Here goes:

1. Avoiding Carbohydrates

Completely depriving your body of carbohydrates is not the right way to go on a diet. No doubt that carbohydrates are the new food demons (a status formerly reserved for fats and lipids), it is however not good to completely cut off carbohydrates from your diet.

Carbohydrates are important for your body as they help in energy production. They are necessary for the secretion of serotonin which evokes the feeling of happiness in our body. So, in other words, it is about eating smart. You can eat the good healthy carbs like whole grains and you can avoid the refined unhealthy carbohydrates on your way to weight loss & fitness.

2. Consuming Calories Unknowingly

Take a look at the food items which you are consuming. Some harmless looking food stuff contains a great amount of calories which you forgot or thought them as harmless and note down in your calorie counting book. Gulping that glass of orange juice in a hot afternoon or that coffee while you were conversing with your fellow workers might seem harmless, but they contain good amount of calories which can lead to weight gain.

Sweetened beverages are even worse in this context and one must avoid consuming these products.

The key is to be aware and alert about what you are having. Noted dieticians often comment that most of the people who come to them claim not having anything extra or unhealthy. But they’d be popping chocolates, drinking sweet – cold coffee and binging on potatoes chips and crispies. This is far from healthy! So be aware.

3. Depriving Yourself

Completely depriving yourself of certain food items can actually backfire to your diet program. Although your intention might be to control the intake of calories and get to that ideal weight, your body is not accustomed to the changes. If you have been regularly catering to your “sweet tooth” then a sudden stop on sweet intake may not go down well with your body. There can be the “withdrawal symptoms” and at times, you might even suffer from ill effects.

So instead of completely avoiding certain food items, here is what you could do:

  1. Decrease the intake frequency. For instance, don’t have dessert everyday!
  2. Decrease the quantity of intake. For instance, have a small helping of ice-cream for dessert instead of the regular bowl.
  3. Burn your calories. And this is irrespective of whether you have that dessert or not!

Exercise is important for weight loss. More so, it is important for your fitness.

4. Not keeping a tab on calories

If you are not monitoring your calories, there is a real problem. You must know what you are eating.

For starters, you should maintain a journal to keep a track on your calories. Not keeping one is also a reason for diet plan fails. For your weight loss plan to be a success, you must keep a tab on the calories you eat as well as on those you exhaust. It may be a bit hard and awkward to count the calories at first, but it will definitely pay off in the long run. Make sure that you shamelessly count each and every calorie which you ever consume and don’t even let the harmless looking candy slip off! It’s after all, for your health. At the same time, keep a tab on the number of calories you spent as the difference is what will tell you how much you have improved and how close you are to the ideal weight and figure!

5. Skipping Meals

You might think that to reduce weight one needs to reduce calories. Skipping meals can then reduce a whole bunch of calories, can’t it? Well, although the same might be true in a perfect world, ours sadly isn’t one. Skipping meals can interfere with your body’s digestion and lead to indigestion and render your body unable to utilize the food properly. Also, it is found that people who skip a meal overeat when they get a chance to in the next meal, which possesses a higher threat to weight loss.

So it’s all about being wise, eating well and doing the right amount of exercise. Get that discipline in your life – your body deserves it! Cheers!

5 Body-Toning Exercises for Women

I always say that the most important thing in life is having a healthy body. Your body is a temple and it’s the only one you’re ever gonna have, so you should take care of it! So, I decided to give you some tips on how to keep your bodytoned. I know most of you are probably very busy with work, family and the like, so I’m only including activities that are both quick and effective.

1. Jumping Jacks
Everyone knows how to do jumping jacks and you don’t need a gym membership to do them! These can be very effective, especially if you go to your local sporting goods store and buy yourself a pair of ankle weights to wear while doing them. You can also buy some free weights to hold in your hands. They should be on the lighter side though, as this is a toning and endurance exercise, not weight lifting.

2. Dead Lifts
The Dead lift is considered by many to be the greatest exercise ever invented and for good reason. This one single exercise works your entire body. Just make sure you practice with less weight at first, because it can be easy for a beginner to lose form and pull a muscle. You can look up tutorial videos on YouTube or just have someone at the gym coach you.

3. Leg lifts
Leg lifts are very important for toning your lower abdominal region. This can be a difficult area to tone even if you are doing sit ups, so I would recommend this activity to almost anyone. Leg lifts enable you to fully stretch out your stomach, unlike flat ground sit-ups.

4. Balance
Instead of standing on the flat ground during your whole workout, it is much more effective to stand on a trampoline or on a bosu ball for part of it. This will engage your core and give you a full body workout, instead of just focusing on your upper body. Do a simple Google search for great balance exercises. There are literally countless options out there.

5. Plyos
The plyo is similar to a squat, except you use the motion of a squat to jump up to a higher level, and then back down to the ground. Do these over and over again. Really feel the burn and you will notice your legs and glutes transforming like never before.

6. Push Ups
Do these often, but make sure you do them while balancing on your toes, not your knees (unless you have to, then don’t worry about it – just do what challenges you). When push ups are done correctly, they will engage your entire core so that you are not just working your arms and chest, you are working your entire torso. This is a kind of “body weight workout” – these are great because they require no equipment, and your bodyweight is usually a good amount of weight for a beginner to start out with anyway.

Remember that none of these workouts are going to be effective unless you commit yourself to doing them all the time and never skipping out. You will also need to have a healthy diet too, because exercise can only do half the job of looking good. You can build as much muscle as you want, but if you have fat over it, it won’t do you any good. That means cutting out all fast food and soda. Study how the body metabolizes its food to get the most bang for your buck. A lot of knowledge can be obtained online and in magazine, so it’s not hard to learn this. Lastly, remember that it’s not always about who trains the hardest. It’s about who trains the smartest.
