Health & Fitness: Benefits and Ways to Raise your Testostrone?

5 Bad Habits That Kill Your Testosterone Levels


“So what I have got you for today, is a list of 6 simple steps that will completely destroy your testosterone production. If you want to get low testosterone levels, please follow the steps in this list, and if you want to do the exact opposite – which I highly suggest – then consider this as a “how-not-to list”.

1. Sleep less than four hours per night
just by sleeping less than 4 hours a night, you can easily halve your testosterone levels, and as an added bonus, you’ll feel like a zombie everyday! That’s just awesome, and hey, at least you don’t become too “aggressive” or masculine

2. Eat like a fitness enthusiast
a) Being on a calorie deficit is well-known for its ability to lower testosterone levels (even though this is mandatory if you’re a fat-ass looking to lose weight).

b) High-protein diets are detrimental for testosterone production

3. Workout every day
Once your cortisol goes up, testosterone goes down. Simply because High T and chronically high cortisol can’t co-exist.

Hit the gym hard everyday and you will skyrocket your cortisol, which again, destroys your testosterone.

4. Drink too much alcohol
Alcohol and the endocrine system is not exactly a match made in heaven.

It has been demonstrated countless times in science that the more alcohol (ethanol) you drink, the lower your testosterone, and the higher your estrogen levels will be

5. Get fat

Being fat is like a testicular nuclear bomb. It saps away the life from your gonads. And it also neutralizes the testosterone that eventually reaches your bloodstream.

These foot exercises help improve seniors’ mobility mcknights.com
“..On March 10, we wrote a news item entitled, “Study shows simple foot exercises significantly decrease seniors’ risk of falls.” In this item (click here to see it) we told you about a group of Portuguese researchers who had discovered that simple foot and ankle exercises had enormous benefits when it comes to improving functional mobility in facility-dwelling seniors…

Dorsiflexor muscle exercises..

While in a sitting position, and with heels planted firmly on the ground, lift the ball of the foot up in the air. There are two muscles that cross the back of the ankle, Smith explained. By performing this exercise in a sitting position, only one of the muscles is used, making this a good routine to start out with…

Plantar flexor muscle exercises

For exercising the plantar flexor muscles (the ones on the bottom of the foot), another simple gravity-based routine will do the trick.

“The simplest thing is to stand with your hands on a counter top or something firm and practice going up on tiptoes on both feet,” Smith said.

Once you get to the top, don’t just come straight back down. Slowly lowering your body is much more beneficial. Once you’ve built up some tolerance to this exercise, you can stay up longer, or switch to just one foot…

9 Workout Tips For Busy Moms-Healthy Living: Lifestyle By: Chris Freytag // August 9, 2015 gethealthyu.com
“…Since my kids were babies, I have scheduled my workouts like I schedule an appointment. It’s inked in my calendar. My kids have grown up knowing that I value exercise. hey tagged along to the gym with me happily and sometimes, not so happily. They have listened to me talk about strength, cardio and healthy eating. And now they will even workout with me and actually value the example I set for the past 22 years. Believe me, I remember the times when I’d just start my workout and a baby would start to cry. Or we’d arrive at the gym and one Tof the three would get sick … I know most of you can feel that pain. But the most important thing is to not give up and to try again…”

17 Tips from Fit Moms on Finding Time for Exercise Fitness by Christine Yu on 1/10/2017 dailyburn.com/
“…Take Katy Widrick, for example. Before becoming a mom, the TV producer, blogger and group fitness instructor thought she was a master multi-tasker. “I juggled a full-time job with a blog, training for half-marathons and more. Then came my daughter — my perfect, amazing little girl. And boy, did she teach me that everything I thought I knew about managing my time was a joke!” she says.

Between caring for kids, workplace demands, household chores, doctors appointments, school and all the rest, there is often precious little time for moms to sweat.

10 Ways to Exercise as a Family How to get the whole family moving — together.

by Aviva Patz
“…How, you may wonder, can you help your child get the recommended one-plus hours of daily physical activity when you can’t even make it to the gym? The answer, says Virgilio, is to rethink your idea of exercise. “A workout doesn’t have to mean running laps or lifting weights, which requires you to set aside blocks of time,” he says. “Think of exercise as leading an active lifestyle, which you can do with your kids, and you’ll be able to fit in more than you think.”

As a bonus, exercise with family does double duty as quality time — no small consideration given our jam-packed schedules. Let these creative ideas help you turn every day into an opportunity to get fit — and have fun — together.

“Fitness & Fun with Kids” – Christian Fitness -Faith Based Wellness


Alisa Keeton
“Published on Feb 27, 2012

So your kids have been joining in anyways, why not make a workout that includes them? Fair warning: you have to show up willing to play.

You may be familiar with the Michelle Obama’s “Let’s Move” program. She is on a mission to eradicate childhood obesity, and has invited the faith community to get involved. Of course Revelation Wellness is going to meet that call.

It is important that we model healthy living to our kids. Even more important it is that we have continual dialogue about WHY God would want us to live healthy & whole lives. We challenge you to explain to them how God’s word is not only our health in being, but also our health in doing. That old adage is true “You are what you eat.”; when we participate in a well balanced diet and exercise plan, we are well fueled to get the task of giving and receiving love well.

And if we may add one to your list of sayings “What you do, you become.” Making the harder choices is an exercise in obedience. Obedience rarely goes down the path of least resistance. Give your kids an opportunity to “workout” their love for God and others and who they are in Christ, as they feel their bodies heat up and push against that path of most resistance.

Jesus is the remedy for all of our ailments. We, the church, are the vehicle to dispense his healing love. Start at home first and then let the ripple effect take over.

Be His.

Alisa”

Here’s how I turned things around

First, I made myself a priority. Many may be depending on you, but you have to be in good mental and physical health to be of service to any of them.

I started down my path to fitness by going for slow runs with walk breaks, and I learned how to do push-ups and other strengthening exercises to prevent bone density loss and, therefore, osteoporosis. (Consult your doctor before starting a new exercise regimen.)

Fitness: How to teach kids ice skating?

Kids getting antsy during the long winter season? Instead of them playing video games indoors, get them outside to ice skate! How to teach them?

When I took my 8 yr. old nephew to the John Oval in Roseville (Minnesota), one of the first tips I gave is how to dress. I asked him if he had the right pair of gloves. It’s better to have “water resistant” gloves instead of the material that might soak water. In fact, my nephew was wearing jeans. I told him it would’ve been better to wear wind pants over his jeans or snow pants as an alternative. This is because when you are skating for the first time, you’ll fall and get ice all over. Thus, it’ll melt and go through your “non-water resistant” pants. The child might get wet and start getting cold, which might get him/her sick.

When we got on the ice, I told him to watch how I do it. I would show him baby steps and then asked him to copy. Another alternative is to have him/her use those skating “walkers”, which I would use the second time we went ice skating later in the week (see pic below )..
