“..If you are looking for a job that involves a moderate amount of physical activity, you might be surprised to learn that 80 percent of contemporary jobs are sedentary or involve only light activity. As a striking testament to changing work trends during the last 50 years, the total of jobs involving at least moderate physical activity has dipped from 50 percent in 1960 to 20 percent today. This is a practical problem for many workers, because too much sitting can lead to health problems..”

Six essential functional tests for senior adults bioexsystems.com
“..The typical strength and flexibility tests used with a younger population will usually not meet the needs of the senior adult nor will the normative values associated with those functional tests apply. Delaying frailty and improving functional mobility are primary goals when working with seniors. Functional tests designed for seniors can help identify weaknesses in those areas, hopefully before limitations occur. Following are brief descriptions of six essential functional tests for senior adults that are easy to perform and require very little equipment. Many software programs and other text resources are available for specific test protocols as well normative values…”

Cardiovascular Testing


Stress testing should be performed by a doctor. Once the doctor has given the written approval with a list of limitations, the trainer must then determine the fitness level of the cardiovascular system by performing fitness testing. Testing should not be performed on clients who have tachycardia. Fitness tests should be performed on an individual basis and not as a group to avoid competitive results.

The Six-Minute Walk Test is used to measure aerobic endurance. The client will walk at their fastest pace around a rectangular track whose length is 50 yards (45.7m) and width is 5 yards (4.6m).,,

Both patients and health-care professionals identify physical function as a key outcome in the management of RA [7] and improving function as an important therapeutic target in clinical care [6, 8–10].

Designing Balance Exercise Programs for Older Adults acefitness.org
“..Decreased balance is attributable to an age-related decline in multiple physiological systems that contributes to decreased muscle flexibility and strength, reduced central processing of sensory information, and slowed motor responses (American Geriatrics Society, British Geriatrics Society, and American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeon Panel on Falls Prevention, 2001). In addition to an increased risk of falls, diminished balance and mobility may limit activities of daily living or participation in leisure-time activities. Accordingly, it is essential that balance exercises be incorporated into the physical activity programs of older adults. The following article uses case studies to outline the critical components of designing individualized balance exercise programs for clients that reduce their risk of falls. Sample balance exercises and training progressions (from simple to complex) will also be presented…”

‘…Walking for just five or 10 minutes at a time on several days each week, is a great way to begin. Once you can walk for 30 minutes at a time, you’ve built a solid foundation and are ready to add more challenging activities to your routine. Starting a basic strength routine while you begin your aerobic routine will help you build the strength you need to support your aerobic workouts.

The best aerobic activities for older adults to begin with are low-impact exercises, such as walking, cycling, swimming, and water aerobics. Other options include:”

FUN EXERCISES FOR SENIORS: WHAT YOU CAN DO WHILE WATCHING TV cedarsofchapelhill.com
“Fun Exercises for Seniors: What you can do while watching TV
Tired of exercise rudely interrupting your binge watching sessions of your favorite TV show? …

Seated Jumping-Jacks

While traditional jumping jacks are possible while watching TV, they can also be a bit hard on your joints. Instead, do a seated version by sitting on the edge of your chair and lifting your arms up and open wide while also spreading your legs apart. Do a set of 10 of these as quickly as possible, rest and repeat. This will keep your limbs moving and circulating.

Leg Extensions

To do a proper leg extension, simply sit in your chair, extend one leg out and flex your foot so only your heel touches the floor, then raise your leg as high as you can without rounding your back. Hold this for a count of three, lower your leg, repeat or alternate with your other leg.

Use Your Water Bottle

The most obvious use for a water bottle (other than drinking from it, of course) is using it as a hand weight, however it can also be used to strengthen your thighs. To do this, simply sit on your chair with your back straight and shoulders back. Plant your feet on the floor, with your ankles in line with your knees. Now, place a water bottle between your legs and squeeze your thighs around it 30 times. It may not sound like much at first, but when you try it you’ll feel how your thigh muscles will work during this.

Bonus: Do this while also doing the arm exercises listed below.

Elbow Curls

This exercise will help stretch your chest and shoulder muscles and help decrease upper back pain and stress. Simply place your hands on either side of your head with your elbows pointed out then bring your elbows together in front of your face then pull them back to the starting position, repeat up to 30 times.

Arm Circles

It doesn’t get much simpler than this, but if you haven’t exercised in a while, this could be a beneficial way to flex muscles you forgot you even had. For this, simply sit on the edge of your seat and extend your arms out at your side at shoulder height. Move your arms in small circles 20 times going forward and 20 times going back before resting.

Create a Routine Around the Program You’re Watching

A simple way to get yourself moving is to plan on moving around during the commercials (no fair DVRing something and fast forwarding the commercials!). Instead of using this time to grab a snack, stand up and march or walk in place.

You can also create a routine based on the individual show. For example, whenever a certain character comes on screen make sure you do at least one exercise from this list or even just simply stretch your arms above your head or stretch your legs out to keep your joints from stiffening.

Treadmill

Not the most creative exercise on this list, but it is effective and something most people can do no matter what their level of physical fitness is. If you can’t put a treadmill in front of your current television, consider getting a treadmill with a screen already attached. Yes, these exist now and are making it even harder for many people to make excuses for not working out.

Already have a treadmill and you’re not willing to take up living room space with it? Simple, get a TV for the room where you’re treadmill is. While no fitness trainer is likely to encourage you to get more televisions, if the options are not working out at all, or working out with a TV in your home gym, then this is clearly the better plan.

To find more exercise ideas for seniors, read our article Exercise for People Who Hate Exercise.

Looking for a retirement community where you can enjoy television and exercise in your own home while also having plenty of options for social and aerobic activities? The Cedars of Chapel Hill, North Carolina offers a fitness center complete with treadmills, indoor pool and, of course, television. Visit their website to learn about life at The Cedars.

Common causes of choking include:

Trying to swallow large pieces of poorly chewed food.
Drinking alcohol before or during meals. (Alcohol dulls the nerves that aid swallowing.)
Wearing dentures. (Dentures make it difficult to sense whether food is fully chewed before it is swallowed.)
Eating while talking excitedly or laughing, or eating too fast.

How To Use an EpiPen

EpiPen Alternatives Exist, and They May be Cheaper
By Rachael Rettner, Senior Writer | August 26, 2016 06:29pm ET livescience.com
“…But in recent years, the price of the EpiPen has increased dramatically, from $100 in 2007 to a current price of $600 for a two-pack, according to The New York Times. This price increase may limit access to the drug for people who need it, said U.S. Senator Charles Grassley of Iowa, who sent a letter this week to Mylan, the manufacturer of EpiPen, asking about the drug’s pricing. And although health insurance may cover the drug, people with certain insurance plans, such as high-deductible plans, may have to pay the full price, according to USA Today.

But there is a cheaper alternative to the EpiPen, called Adrenaclick, which can be found at Walmart and Sam’s Club for as little as $142 with a coupon, according to Consumer Reports. Adrenaclick provides the same medication, at the same doses, as the EpiPen, according to Adrenaclick’s website. There’s also a generic version of Adrenaclick, called “epinephrine injection, USP auto-injector.” (There is no generic version of the EpiPen.)

However, the method of administering Adrenaclick or its generic version is a little different from that for the EpiPen; for example, Adrenaclick has two caps that need to be removed, while EpiPen has only one cap.

For this reason, it’s important that users learn precisely how to use whichever device they have, the American Academy of Allergy, Asthma & Immunology (AAAAI) said.

“The stress of an anaphylactic reaction is not the time to realize you have a different auto-injector than what was demonstrated to you by your allergist,” AAAAI said.

Another brand of epinephrine auto-injector, called Auvi‑Q, was recalled last year because it was found to deliver potentially inaccurate doses of epinephrine, according to the Food and Drug Administration. It is no longer on the market….”

CVS generic competitor to EpiPen, sold at a 6th the price


“Published on Jan 12, 2017

CVS says it will charge $109.99 for a two-pack of the authorized generic version of Adrenaclick, a lesser-known treatment compared to EpiPen.”

Types of Shock

There are several different types of shock that are all severely life-threatening if left untreated. The following are the types of shock:

Hypovolemic shock: caused by great volume losses of blood and fluids
Cardiogenic shock: linked to heart problems
Anaphylactic shock: caused by a severe allergic reaction
Septic shock: linked to body infections
Neurogenic shock: caused by damage to the nervous system

First Aid Management for Shock

A person should call for emergency medical services immediately for symptoms of shock. While waiting for the paramedics, apply first aid to help avoid complications from developing. The following steps are generally recommended:

Call for emergency medical services immediately or have someone drive the victim to the nearest emergency room.
Check the victim’s circulation, airway and breathing. If necessary, initiate rescue breathing and CPR.
Constant check rate of breathing every five minutes even if the victim is capable of breathing on his or her own.
If the victim is conscious with no injury to the head, neck, spine or leg, lay the person down flatly with the feet elevated about 12 inches to increase circulation. The head should not be elevated. This is called the shock position. However, if there is a suspected head, neck, back, or leg injury, do not move the individual’s position unless there is danger in the immediate environment.
If there is bleeding, broken bones or other injuries, apply appropriate first aid.
Keep the person warm by covering with a blanket or coat. Loosen any tight clothing.
If there is no injury, turn the victim’s head to the side to avoid choking. If there is a suspected spinal injury, hold the person’s head, neck and back in a line and roll the victim to the side as a unit.

Medical: How the Heart Functions?

Human Heart – Diagram and Anatomy of the Heart innerbody.com

“…
The heart is a muscular organ about the size of a closed fist that functions as the body’s circulatory pump. It takes in deoxygenated blood through the veins and delivers it to the lungs for oxygenation before pumping it into the various arteries (which provide oxygen and nutrients to body tissues by transporting the blood throughout the body). The heart is located in the thoracic cavity medial to the lungs and posterior to the sternum.

On its superior end, the base of the heart is attached to the aorta,……

How the Heart Works

How the Heart Works

The heart is made up of chambers, muscles, and valves

“Your heart has four chambers (these are like rooms). Each chamber has a valve that opens and closes like a gate to make sure that blood can only travel in one direction, like a one-way traffic system…”
….

Blood is pumped through the heart in a specific direction

“…Blood flows from the body into the right side of the heart, then out to the lungs, before re-entering the heart on the left side and being pumped back out to the rest of the body.

The atria are like the ‘entrance rooms’ of the heart. Blood lacking in oxygen first enters the heart through the right atrium (via the vena cava)
Blood flows from the right atrium into the right ventricle
The right ventricle pumps blood to the lungs (via the pulmonary artery) where it collects oxygen
Oxygen-rich blood from the lungs flows back to the heart (via the pulmonary vein) and arrives in the left atrium
This blood flows from the left atrium into the left ventricle, where it is pumped out to the rest of the body (via the aorta).
..”

Terms:

Inferior vena cava healthline.com
“… is also referred to as the posterior vena cava. The inferior vena cava is a large vein that carries de-oxygenated blood from the lower body to the heart. De-oxygenated blood means most of the oxygen has been removed by tissues, and therefore the blood is darker. This blood comes from the legs and the lower torso of the body. The inferior vena cava empties into the right atrium of the heart. ..”

The heart is the organ that supplies blood and oxygen to all parts of the body,the heart is found in almost all animals. It is about the size of a clenched fist, weighs about 10.5 ounces and is shaped like a cone. The heart is located in the chest cavity just posterior to the breastbone, between the lungs and superior to the diaphragm. The heart is also the strongest muscle in your body, five and six thousands quarts of blood are pumped each day in your body…”

Myocardium– The myocardium includes heart muscle cells that make up the bulk of heart wall and the middle layer.

Picture of the Arteries webmd.com
“..The arteries are the blood vessels that deliver oxygen-rich blood from the heart to the tissues of the body. Each artery is a muscular tube lined by smooth tissue and has three layers:

The intima, the inner layer lined by a smooth tissue called endothelium
The media, a layer of muscle that lets arteries handle the high pressures from the heart
The adventitia, connective tissue anchoring arteries to nearby tissues

The largest artery is the aorta, the main high-pressure pipeline connected to the heart’s left ventricle. The aorta branches into a network of smaller arteries that extend throughout the body. The arteries’ smaller branches are called arterioles and capillaries. The pulmonary arteries carry oxygen-poor blood from the heart to the lungs under low pressure, making these arteries unique…”

Drugs may be prescribed to slow the progression of the disease by improving the heart’s ability to pump blood, decreasing stress on the heart and preventing fluid retention (which can lead to pulmonary edema, a condition in which fluid retention in the lungs has become so severe that emergency intervention is required). These medications may include ACE-inhibitors, beta blockers, digoxin, diuretics and, if needed, anticoagulants to thin the blood. Individuals with heart failure should avoid taking non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, most antiarrhythmic agents unless absolutely necessary (often used to help correct abnormalities in the rhythm and rate of the heartbeat), most calcium antagonists, decongestants (they make the heart work harder) and antacids containing sodium, which can cause fluid retention…”

hemorrhagic stroke

Hemorrhagic stroke occurs when a weakened blood vessel ruptures. Two types of weakened blood vessels usually cause hemorrhagic stroke: aneurysms and arteriovenous malformations(AVMs). But the most common cause of hemorrhagic stroke is uncontrolled hypertension (high blood pressure).

Stroke Rate Rising Among Younger Adults (Video) Written By John Fernandez Published February 27, 2019 baptisthealth.net
“..The new data is worrisome to the medical community and physician peer groups, which have strongly promoted the treatment and prevention of stroke’s underlying risk factors, such as high blood pressure, high cholesterol and diabetes.

Unfortunately, many younger adults don’t seem to be heeding the warnings associated with strokes, which represent the 5th leading cause of death in the United States…

An ischemic stroke, the most common type, occurs as a result of an obstruction within a blood vessel supplying blood to the brain. It accounts for nearly 90 percent of all stroke cases and can potentially be treated with tPA, the clot-busting drug, if treated promptly. Far fewer strokes are hemorrhagic, caused when a weakened blood vessel ruptures. Delays in treating strokes can lead to death or severe debilitation.

“There are reports that people 35 to 55 are having more strokes and it’s unclear exactly why that is,” says Felipe De Los Rios, M.D., Medical Director, Stroke Program at Baptist Health Neuroscience Center. “But what we do know is that diseases we normally see in older people are happening at younger ages. We see more obesity, diabetes and high blood pressure.”

Studies have confirmed that lifestyle habits of adults in their 20s, 30s and 40s, including smoking, poor nutrition and alcohol consumption, will have a major impact on their health when they reach their 60s and beyond, says Dr. Rios…”

“..Doctors not involved in the “Beverly Hills, 90210” star’s care said that middle-age adults such as Perry can face grave risk from brain swelling after a massive stroke.

“The immediate time after stroke is the most deadly for someone who is young,” said Salman Azhar, director of stroke at Lenox Hill Hospital in New York City. That’s because their brains have not yet shrunk, as they do in older adults.

“There is often times no space in the brain for the swelling to happen. That in and of itself can make these strokes more fatal in the young.”..”

The term is considered by some to be misleading in that the word element-stasis implies a static or fixed and unmoving state, whereas homeostasis actually involves continuous motion, adaptation, and change in response to environmental factors.

It is through homeostatic mechanisms that body temperature is kept within normal range, the osmotic pressure of the blood and its hydrogen ion concentration (pH) is kept within strict limits, nutrients are supplied to cells as needed, and waste products are removed before they accumulate and reach toxic levels of concentration. These are but a few examples of the thousands of homeostatic control systems within the body. Some of these systems operate within the cell and others operate within an aggregate of cells (organs) to control the complex interrelationships among the various organs…”

Effect of exercise training and myocardial infarction on force development and contractile kinetics in isolated canine myocardium ncbi.nlm.nih.gov
“..moderate exercise training elicits a small increase in ventricular mass (i.e., a physiological hypertrophy) that has many beneficial effects on overall cardiac health. It is also well known that, when a myocardial infarction damages part of the heart, the remaining myocardium remodels to compensate for the loss of viable functioning myocardium. The effects of exercise training, myocardial infarction (MI), and their interaction on the contractile performance of the myocardium itself remain largely to be determined. The present study investigated the contractile properties and kinetics of right ventricular myocardium isolated from sedentary and exercise trained (10-12 wk progressively increasing treadmill running, begun 4 wk after MI induction) dogs with and without a left ventricular myocardial infarction. Exercise training increased force development, whereas MI decreased force development that was not improved by exercise training. Contractile kinetics were significantly slower in the trained dogs, whereas this impact of training was less or no longer present after MI. Length-dependent activation, both evaluated on contractile force and kinetics, was similar in all four groups. The control exercise-trained group exhibited a more positive force-frequency relationship compared with the sedentary control group while both sedentary and trained post-MI dogs had a more negative relationship. Last, the impact of the β-adrenergic receptor agonist isoproterenol resulted in a similar increase in force and acceleration of contractile kinetics in all groups. Thus, exercise training increased developed force but slowed contractile kinetics in control (noninfarcted animals), actions that were attenuated or completely absent in post-MI dogs…”

Exercise training has been recognized to prevent and ameliorate cardiovascular disease. Although exercise can reduce cardiovascular disease, it is also suggested that it can be instrumental in preventing chronic disease such as hypertension, dyslipidemia, and diabetes mellitus. A recent study by Mann and Rosenzweig1 wonderfully highlighted the beneficial effects of exercise including cardiac effects and systemic factors on skeletal muscle, metabolism, and vascular dysfunction (Fig. 1)…

Exercise is beneficial for the heart in a number of ways, although the exact process as to how exercise intervenes in the cardiovascular system is unknown. As advised, walking by stairs is more beneficial than taking the elevator. This review will focus on current heart medication categories commonly used to treat diseases. Particular exercise pathways similar or different from medications work of action will also be discussed…”

Dangerous and often undetected, aortic aneurysms are more common than you might expect.

“About 4-8% of the male population greater than 60 years of age are walking around with this,” says Dr. Russell Becker, who is a vascular surgeon with Lee Memorial Health System.

An aneurysm is an out-pouching or bulging of the wall of a blood vessel. Like a balloon being blown up, the tissue thins and may burst. An aortic aneurysm occurs in the main vessel that leads to heart, located between the sternum and belly button.

Coronary Calcium Score – No Doctor’s Order? healio.com
“.. Note that a coronary calcium score IS NOT a test to see if a patient’s symptoms are heart-related. To evaluate chest pain or other potential anginal symptoms, stress testing is the preferred method. A person’s calcium score could be quite high without any obstructive coronary stenosis (and vise versa). It is important to keep this test as a risk assessment only. Patients may have a different perception if not well educated and might have the scan done to see if their “heartburn” is really from their heart. This is quite inappropriate and potentially dangerous. Look at this image below showing a CT of a coronary vessel with extensive calcification, then look at the correlating invasive coronary angiogram showing absolutely no flow-limiting stenosis:..

So, to get a coronary calcium score or not? Is it worth the 0.9 mSv to 2.4 mSv of radiation exposure? If you are a middle-aged person with no previous heart disease diagnosis or risk equivalent (diabetes or peripheral arterial disease), no potential anginal symptoms, and some risk factors for heart disease such as hypertension, tobacco use, dyslipidemia or a family history of ischemic heart disease, then this test is for you … as long as you understand and accept the risk of radiation exposure, which is low but present. Perhaps every 3 years the test can be repeated to assess for any change, however no more frequently than that. It is probably one of the best ways the appropriate person could spend $99, in my opinion!”

“..Foods That Heal Heart Disease

Instead of focusing on foods that reduce fat and cholesterol, we would be much better off making the goal to reduce inflammation. Heart disease is really caused by the inflammation of arteries, and yet modern medicine focuses on treating symptoms, not addressing the root cause of the issue….

Begin incorporating one new anti-inflammatory food to your diet each day. Don’t be afraid to try new things and keep it interesting!

Foods that help reduce inflammation and, therefore, the risk of CHD include:

Fiber-rich and antioxidant-rich foods of all kinds
Vegetables (all kinds, including beets, carrots, cruciferous vegetables like Brussels sprouts, broccoli, cabbage, cauliflower and kale, dark leafy greens, artichokes, onions, peas, salad greens, mushrooms, sea vegetables and squashes)
Fruits (all kinds, especially berries and citrus)
Herbs and spices, especially turmeric (curcumin) and raw garlic (also basil, chili peppers, cinnamon, curry powder, ginger, rosemary and thyme)
Traditional teas like green tea, oolong or white tea
Legumes and beans
Healthy fats found in nuts, seeds, avocados, wild-caught fish, coconut oil and extra virgin olive oil
Raw, unpasteurized dairy products, cage-free eggs and pasture-raised poultry
Red wine in moderation

” Before: Whole Wheat Toast with Sliced Banana and Cinnamon

When it comes to gearing up for workout, carbs are your gym BFF. The key is to have a mixed bag of complex and simple ones so that the release of energy during your workout is slow and steady throughout your routine. Whole-wheat toast with fruit gives you both types of carbs with the bonus of being super easy to digest. Complex carbs will keep your motor humming, while the fruit adds an extra kick of energy. For those training for a race, bananas are perfect in raising potassium levels, which drop when you sweat a lot. For an added bonus, add a dash of cinnamon. The spice has been linked to stabilizing blood sugar and improving brain function.

Any fruit before a workout could help, try mixing it in with some protein source such as fat free Greek yogurt.
2. White Rice and brown rice mix. This was always one of my favorite pre workout meals. You eat the white rice for fast easily digestible energy, and you eat the brown rice for slower digesting longer duration energy. When you have both your energy levels should stay high throughout your entire workout. Have this with some chicken breast or legumes ..”

“..Muscular endurance, on the other hand, refers to the muscle’s ability to exert a submaximal force repeatedly over time, such as a half sit up test or a push up test. But muscular endurance tests also measure strength to some degree.

Take the push up test for example. If you have very weak upper body muscles, you’re going to have a difficult time pushing yourself up. Therefore you may only be able to do a couple pushups before everything gives out. Because your strength is so low, we’re not able to get a great measure of endurance. The YMCA bench press test is another example of this. You lift a certain weight to the speed of a metronome. The test is stopped when you can’t lift the bar up or when you can’t keep up with the metronome. This type of test puts lighter clients at a disadvantage. If I am struggling to lift the bar to the start position because it’s too heavy, I’m not going to get a lot of repetitions in. My strength impacts my endurance…”

Bench Press kinematics biomechanicalbenchpress.weebly.com
“..The variables that we will be evaluating are time, vertical displacement, vertical velocity, and vertical acceleration. Displacement is the change in position of an object from start to stop, in which the object here is the bar (3). Acceleration is then the change in velocity over time; velocity measures how fast an object is moving in a certain direction (3). The subject will go through 4 stages. Starting with the bar on their chest and moving up, is the acceleration phase. When the person struggles this is considered the sticking phase, which is then proceeded by the maximal strength stage and lastly the deceleration phase as the bar returns to the resting point on the chest (2) During the acceleration phase the subject needs to create enough acceleration to carry them to the sticking point. The main goal is to complete the lift and get through the sticking phase.

Biomechanics of the Bench Press ptonthenet.com
“..Movement Pattern

Lower the barbell toward your chest, by flexing your elbows while maintaining scapulae retraction. Lower the barbell until a slight stretch is felt in the pectorals. Avoid letting the low-back arch, the head to jut forward, or the shoulders to shrug during this motion in order to maintain an ideal and safe posture.
Preserve the natural curvature of the lumbar spine (low-back) throughout the entire lift. In other words, keep the spine in a neutral position. Elite powerlifters may perform the lift with excessive lumbar extension (arched low-back), but this position is not advised for the general fitness enthusiast unless properly instructed, and the person has a specific goal to increase 1 repetition maximum performance.
Aim to perform the exercise through a full range of motion unless mobility/flexibility deficits restrict motion or pain/pinching sensations are felt in the shoulder region.
Press the barbell back up to the starting position by extending the elbows and contracting the chest.

Don’t let the fact that you’re ‘bulking’ make you think you can fill your diet with whatever you want. If you consistently put highly-processed, sugary food into your body, you’re not going to feel well and you will gain more fat than muscle.

Choose lean protein sources like chicken, lean beef, fish, egg whites and whey protein. Your carbs should be complex and come from brown rice, sweet potatoes, barley and oatmeal. You’ll still need fruits and veggies. To get good fats, consume plenty of flaxseeds, fish oil, avocado, nuts and natural nut butter.

Avoid foods with trans fats or excessive saturated fat. They don’t support lean body composition. Some saturated fat is okay to include and even beneficial for testosterone levels, but it shouldn’t overtake your unsaturated fat intake.

“…

(100 reps)

“Push-ups: the one bodyweight chest exercise to rule them all.

Using this set as a pretty red ribbon to complete the whole pain package, James cranks out 100 reps total in as few sets as possible. Do as many as you can and rest briefly, if needed, and then continue riding the gain train.

Grage Tip: Note that James is a badass and does push-ups on his knuckles—no big deal. “Do them in whatever fashion you choose, so long as you complete the 100 reps and really burn the muscle out,” he says. “This will give you that blood flow and extra pump.”…

Foods To Eat To Gain Muscle: Eat These 5 Things For Faster Gains



“..Watch the video as Troy Adashun dives in and discusses in detail these great muscle-building foods.

0:30 – Salmon

Salmon is a delicious muscle-building food and is high in protein and omega fatty acids. A diet rich in healthy fats is essential for any muscle-building diet plan. Most skinny guys lack healthy monounsaturated fats in their diet, and salmon is a great way to implement them into your muscle gain diet. ..

2:42 – Watermelon

Watermelon is a delicious addition to a muscle gain diet and serves as the perfect post-workout carbohydrate source. Watermelon has a high glycemic rating, meaning that it will spike your insulin and serve as a nutrient activator for post-workout consumption. Watermelon is also high in citrulline and will aid in boosting post-workout nitric oxide levels, which will raise your HGH levels naturally. Higher HGH levels post workout mean that your body will build muscle and burn fat. This means that watermelon is the perfect post-workout carbohydrate for a muscle-building diet.

3:57 – Broccoli

What to eat to gain muscle mass usually consists of protein, healthy fats, and carbohydrates, but vegetables also play a key role! Broccoli actually helps to kill free radicals and fight off estrogen in your body, raising your natural testosterone levels. This makes broccoli a great muscle-building food and the perfect side dish for any bodybuilding diet.

These protein-rich foods can help you add mass without sacrificing taste.

“..Cottage cheese’s muscle-building powers come from two different components. Cottage cheese contains a high proportion of casein, the slow-digesting dairy protein. When you eat casein, your blood amino acid levels rise slowly and stay elevated for longer than if you would have eaten whey (the other dairy protein). Cottage cheese also contains live cultures—also known as good bacteria—that will help you break down and absorb all the nutrients you need to get bigger and stronger..

Chickpeas should be your anytime carb source of choice. If you are having trouble getting big and staying lean, replace some of the rice and grain in your diet with chickpeas. This versatile bean contains 45 grams of slow-acting carbs per cup along with 12 grams of fiber

..Lentils should be your secret mass-building weapon. One cup of cooked lentils contains 18 grams of protein and 40 grams of slow-digesting quality carbohydrates. They are also very inexpensive and have a long shelf life. They cook up in just 10 minutes and can be added mixed in with brown rice, sprinkled over a salad, or eaten as a standalone side dish…”

…Salmon contains both high-quality protein and the long-chain omega-3 fats like EPA and DHA. These omega-3 fatty acids are most well known for their ability to improve heart health, but they also inhibit muscle breakdown while increasing the anabolic capacity of amino acids. If you don’t like eating fish, then make sure to take a fish oil supplement to reap these benefits…

Fermented dairy products like kefir are a little-known magic bullet for muscle building. Kefir is the perfect addition to any muscle-building blender bomb, providing distinct nutritional advantages over water or regular milk. If you usually use water in your shakes, 1 cup of kefir will add 150 calories to your diet. Compared to regular milk, kefir will allow your meal to be more easily digested due to the presence of probiotics (up to 10 billion good bacteria per cup). These healthy bacteria will help keep your digestive track running at peak condition so it can break down and assimilate a maximum amount of calories and nutrients from your meals…

..Searching for an even leaner alternative to beef with plenty of flavor? Look to bison. Bison meat contains only 2-3 grams of fat per 3.5-ounce serving—beef has multiple times that, averaging 8-9 grams of fat in a comparable cut. It also has fewer calories per ounce, making it a precious source of protein for guys trying to stay lean…

True Greek yogurt is even richer in protein than the regular variety, and contains gut-bacteria-boosting probiotics. Be careful not to splurge on flavored yogurts, though, since they are often sneaky sugar bombs. (Add some fresh fruit instead..

Cooked brown rice has five grams of protein per cup. It also has a relatively high amount of branched-chain amino acids, making it a good vegetarian muscle-building food…

Tuna is ultra-rich in protein, and very lean, especially when compared to terrestrial animal protein. If you’re buying tuna steaks, though, aim for sustainably fished tuna, since they are a heavily fished species. On a budget? A single 5-oz can of chunk white tuna (actually albacore, a tuna relative) contains 30 grams of protein…

Flax ain’t just a pretty flower. Flaxseed is a natural, diet-friendly source of fiber, fatty acids, and protein. Flaxseed has been shown to reduce hypertension, prevent skin cancer, fight depression, and reduce the risk of liver disease. Plus, it’s conveniently packaged in supplement tablets, ground-up powder, and oil forms….

Now booming in popularity, almond butter has a far better ratio of protein to fat than peanut butter. It’s also a milder-tasting, and like unprocessed almonds (duh) contains Vitamins B2 and E, helping to bolster the immune system…

Shrimp is sweet, cheap, and versatile in the kitchen. You might associate it with holiday get-togethers and snooty cocktail parties, but shrimp is actually a humble source of lean protein in a virtually fat-free package…
