Dislocation of the knee A. Robertson, R. W. Nutton, J. F. Keating DOI: 10.1302/0301-620X.88B6.17448 Published 23 May 2006 bjj.boneandjoint.org.uk

“..Dislocation of the knee is uncommon, representing less than 0.2% of all orthopaedic injuries.3–5 It occurs mainly as a result of high-energy trauma, usually in young men. Motor-vehicle accidents account for over half of the cases and sports injuries for slightly less than one-third. Dislocation is associated with multiple trauma in between 14% and 44% of cases and is bilateral in 5% of patients6–10 (Table I⇓)…”

Patella dislocation stoneclinic.com

“..Reduction

If the patella has been shifted completely outside of its groove, the first step will be returning it to its normal position. This process is called reduction and can sometimes happen spontaneously. If not, a doctor can push the patella back in place.
Surgical treatment

For patellar dislocations resulting in a damaged ligament, we will most often reconstruct the damaged ligament (patellofemoral ligament) surgically using a donor tendon. If there is damage to the articular cartilage in the joint, we can treat it arthroscopically. Failure to address these issues may lead to a chronically unstable patella and potentially an arthritic knee.
Rehabilitation

Rehabilitation following reconstruction of the patellofemoral ligament focuses on getting the patient fitter, faster, stronger with a primary emphasis on promoting proper tracking of the patella. During the first month, emphasis is on healing of the repaired ligament while maintaining range of motion as allowed by the patient’s surgeon on an individual basis. As patients progress through the program, specific lower extremity strength and stabilization activities are introduced. In the final months of the rehab program, focus transitions to sports-specific training.

Some people are chronically loose in the knee cap, often due to bony shapes such as a flat anterior femur (trochlea) in combination with tissue laxity (stretchy tissues). In those cases, careful physical therapy and strengthening exercises focused on the muscles that guide the patella are prescribed first before any surgical procedure is undertaken…”

Home Remedies for Knee Pain top10homeremedies.com

“..Here are the top 10 home remedies for knee pain.
1. Cold Compress

Applying cold compresses to the painful knee is one of the best and easiest ways to reduce pain and swelling. The cold will constrict the blood vessels, reducing blood flow to the affected area and thus reducing swelling. It will also give you relief from the pain.

Wrap a handful of ice cubes in a thin towel.
Apply the compress to the affected knee area for 10 to 20 minutes.
Do this two or three times daily until your pain is gone.

A bag of frozen peas also works well as a cold compress. You can opt for alternating hot and cold compresses as well for chronic pains.

2. Apple Cider Vinegar

Apple cider vinegar is also helpful in reducing knee pain. Due to its alkalizing effect, apple cider vinegar helps dissolve mineral build-ups and harmful toxins within the knee joint. It also helps restore joint lubricants to help reduce pain and promote mobility.

Mix two teaspoons of apple cider vinegar in two cups of filtered water. Sip this mixture throughout the day. Drink this tonic daily until you recover completely.
You can also add two cups of apple cider vinegar to a bath tub of hot water. Soak the affected knee in the water for 30 minutes. Do this once daily for a few days.
Also, you can mix together one tablespoon each of apple cider vinegar and olive oil. Use it to massage the affected knee once or twice daily until the pain is gone.

3. Cayenne Pepper

Cayenne pepper contains capsaicin that works like a pain reliever. Capsaicin’s natural analgesic or pain-relieving properties produce a warm sensation and reduce pain in the affected knee.

Prepare a mixture by adding two tablespoons of cayenne pepper powder in one-half cup of warm olive oil. Apply this paste on the affected area twice daily for at least one week.
You can also mix one-quarter or one-half teaspoon of cayenne pepper powder in one cup of apple cider vinegar. Soak a clean washcloth in this solution and apply it on the aching area for about 20 minutes once or twice daily until the pain and inflammation is reduced.
You can even apply a gel containing 0.0125 percent capsaicin topically to reduce knee pain.

4. Ginger

Whether knee pain is due to arthritis, muscle strain or injury, ginger is an effective remedy to alleviate the pain. Its effectiveness comes from the presence of anti-inflammatory compounds in it. Ginger can reduce swelling on the knee as well as the pain.

Crush a small piece of fresh ginger root, add to one cup of water and boil it for 10 minutes. Strain and add a little honey and lemon juice. Drink two to three cups of this ginger tea daily until the pain is gone.
You can also massage the affected knee with ginger oil two or three times a day until you are satisfied with the results.

5. Turmeric

Turmeric is an effective and natural treatment to relieve knee pain. Turmeric contains a chemical called curcumin that has anti-inflammatory as well as antioxidant properties that help reduce pain.

Also, the National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine (NCCAM) reports that turmeric may slow the progression of rheumatoid arthritis, one of the main causes of knee pain.

Add one-half teaspoon each of ground ginger and turmeric to a cup of water and boil it for 10 minutes. Strain, add honey to taste, and enjoy twice daily.
Boil one teaspoon of turmeric powder in a glass of milk. Sweeten with honey and drink it once daily.
Another option is to take 250 to 500 mg turmeric capsules three times daily.

Follow these remedies daily until the pain is gone completely.

Note: As turmeric can thin the blood, these remedies are not suitable for those taking blood-thinning medicine.

6. Lemon

Lemon has also been found beneficial as a home remedy for knee pain caused by arthritis. The citric acid found in lemon works as a solvent for uric acid crystals, which is the cause of some types of arthritis…”

  • Remedies for Knee Pain…

    “Massage Therapy: This technique is very effective in soothing aches and pains all over the body. Gently massage your knee area with some warm olive oil around two or three times a day. Make sure that the massage lasts for at least 5 to 10 minutes at each time.

    Resting: When it comes to the treatment of many ailments and afflictions, this is one of the most important, yet commonly overlooked factors. However, it is absolutely essential that you refrain from putting too much pressure on your knees at all times. Giving your knee to heal from an injury or an inflammation will prevent a relapse.
    Elevation: You could reduce the swelling in your knee by keeping it raised. Prop your affected leg on a couple of pillows, or sit on a recliner chair, which allows you to keep your legs elevated….

    Diet for Knee Pain

    Fish like tuna, salmon, herring, sardine, mackerel and cod
    Oranges and orange juice as they are high in Vitamin C
    Sources of a flavonoid known as quercetin, which include onions, red grapes and apples
    Leafy greens, especially spinach
    Soybean and other soy products
    Spices and herbs like ginger, garlic, rosemary, coriander and oregano.

    God Spoke: Will Never Again Have Pain in Knee – Left Knee Healed christianblog.com
    “..In God’s healing of my left knee, God used a word from an orthopedic surgeon and a word of knowledge spoken on two different occasions by Gordon Robertson of the respected Christian program, The 700 Club, to confirm that my knee was being healed and that I will never again have pain in my left knee.

    On a Sunday in mid January, 2011, after standing at the altar in church praising God for a period of time, I started feeling increased pain in my left knee. I had experienced some pain and discomfort before this, but had been ignoring it. The pain became more and more intense as this day went on. It felt like there was a tight band around the base of my knee and pain was emanating from that area. This strong pain did not want to stop and it got to be both an annoying and a gnawing form of pain. I resorted to an aspirin regiment to ease the discomfort.

    In combating the problem with my knee, I prayed asking for healing and I put into action what I have been learning over the past several years. I commanded the pain to go, to leave my body, and I spoke healing and restoration to my knee, in the name of Jesus. When I did this, it seemed that the band of pain broke up and dispersed down my leg. So, then I was feeling discomfort and grawing pain down my leg originating from the knee.

    So strongly do I believe what I have been sharing in the many blogs I have written on the subject of healing. I was not about to quit believing that my knee was being healed. That the healing power of God was at work. I asked God if He would in some way show me that my knee was being healed…”

Pre-Workout

Fastest Way to Gain Upper Body Muscle by BRENDA BARRON Last Updated: Sep 11, 2017 livestrong.com
‘…You need protein to build muscle anywhere on your body, including the upper body. As a general rule, you need 1 gram of protein per pound of body weight you have. You can accomplish this by eating lean protein sources like chicken breast, fish and nuts. You can also have a protein shake before each strength-training workout to give your muscle-building power a boost…

Another way to quickly build upper-body mass is to change your diet. Along with the increase in protein intake, you also need to increase your overall caloric consumption. Building muscle requires a lot of energy so you need to be sure to fuel your body properly for the task. If you are not overweight, try adding 500 calories to your daily diet to see upper-body muscle growth. Vegetables and fruits are a must for good health, but be sure to load up on complex carbohydrates as well…”

Post -Workout

The best post-workout foods by Lisa Freedman mensfitness.com
Eat these after a hard day at the gym to promote muscle growth and aid in recovery.
“..Some quick gym science: Your body stores excess energy in the form of glycogen and protein. When you work out, your body burns fuel from anything you’ve eaten recently, and then it breaks down stored glycogen. Your muscles start to use available protein to rebuild within a few hours of working out, but your body is especially good at absorbing carbs and protein within 45 minutes after your workout—the post-workout window you’ve probably heard about…

“It all comes down to the carbohydrates and protein,” says Manuel Villacorta, R.D., a spokesperson for the American Dietetic Association. “They’re the two key things your body needs—and right after you work out is when your blood circulates best.” If your main goal is to build muscle, try to eat at least 30 grams of protein and 30 to 35 grams of carbs within about 15 minutes of your workout. If you’re just trying to stay in shape or shed a few pounds, you can take your time and eat within 45 minutes or an hour after your workout….

“..These are the abdominal muscles you’ll find on the front of your body. They’re comprised of three layers: the deep layer, the intermediate layer, and the superficial layer”

Deep Layer

“..Pelvic Floor

The pelvic floor is made of muscles positioned below your pelvis. When you take a deep breath, your diaphragm comes down, and your pelvic floor catches the breath. The thoracic diaphragm and the pelvic floor pressurize and stabilize your spine…”

Posterior Core

“Your core consists of more than just the muscles on the front of your body. It’s important to know what’s happening on the back. We’re going to focus on three specific muscle groups in this section: the multifidus, quadratus lumborum, and erector spinae.

Multifidus

The multifidi are small muscles that span 2-4 segments of the spine. You’ll never see them, but they’re important because they give your brain feedback about where your body is in space. These muscles also help control little movements throughout your spine.

Quadratus Lumborum (QL)

This big muscle runs from the top of the hip all the way up to your lower back. It’s important for side-to-side movements, but it’s even more important for preventing side movement. Your QL is necessary for controlling or resisting motion.

Erector Spinae

This muscle group starts at the sacrum and the top of the hip and connects to the ribcage, the top of your neck, and even as high as the base of your skull. These muscles are important for controlling motion during squats and deadlifts. If you need to maintain a little extension, that’s where erector spinae come into play.”

The Workout

“..
In putting together the ultimate ab routine you want to make sure to hit each of the four visible muscle groups, but by the same token, don’t want to create such a long, arduous routine that you’ll never want to do it. So, a combination of thoroughness and efficiency is key, and the best way to achieve that is by figuring a way of hitting the most areas of the abdominal region using the fewest exercises.

As you probably know, there’s a wealth of ab exercises at our disposal that cover every square inch of the midsection. But for our purposes we will limit your workout to six of our favorites, to be performed in three different pairings twice a week, followed by what we call “Gut Busters” [see Exercise Descriptions].

That’s six workouts a week—a lot to be sure—but the right amount if you want standout abs come June 21st. Also keep in mind that each of the three distinct workouts should take you a total of around five minutes—brief, but intense and effective…’

It inserts into the xiphoid process, the linea alba and the symphsis pubis. The lowest tendinous fibres join similar fibres from the interior obliques to form the conjoint tendon which is fixed to the pubic crest and the pectineal line[2].[6]..”

Though you may not see these muscles as you can the rectus abdominis and obliques, the T ABS hold everything in. Imagine an old rubber band that’s been used and re-used. It eventually gets weak and is no longer useful for holding things. That old rubberband is like your T ABS, especially as you age or experience pregnancy. If the T ABS are weak, your belly will literally “hang out.” Failure to achieve your dream mid-section is usually due to improper training of these muscles. However, particular exercises will strengthen and pull your T ABS inward, creating a slimmer mid-section…”

Situps, Hip Flexors & Lordosis by CHRIS DANIELS Last Updated: Sep 17, 2011 livestrong.com
“…
Safety

Though hyperlordosis can arise from weak muscles, treat it as a medical problem rather than a fitness problem. If you already have hyperlodosis, or other back problems, consult your doctor before beginning new exercise programs. While exercise is an important part of improving back health, exercising with back problems places you at a much higher risk of injury. Your doctor can help tailor exercises to your individual medical and physical condition.

Q Ab/Core Exercises Are leg-lowering exercises effective for training my lower abs? sharecare.com
“.. National Academy of Sports Medicine answered
While most people feel the effects of leg-lowering exercises in the lower ab region, the primary muscles being used during these movements are the hip flexors. The main hip flexor, the psoas, passes right through the lower abdominal region as it runs from the lower back to the outside of the upper thigh; as it gets stressed and fatigued during this exercise, many people will feel it working and mistake this for the lower abs, which are in the same general area. A word of caution: leg-lowering exercises are potentially risky and can wreak havoc on the lower back if you lack proper core stability and flexibility in the hips. If you are unable to perform the movement without your lower back moving off of the floor, then you should work on improving the flexibility of your hip flexor muscles and stability of your core before incorporating leg-lowering into your program as this can place extreme stress on the vertebrae in the lower back. Instead, try a reverse crunch or knee-ups as these exercises tend to be a little more lower-back friendly…”

Fitness: Benefits of Biking?

“My mom took this pic of me during my bike ride at Battle Creek Park while my parents did their morning walk in St. Paul on October 2014″

It’s National Bike to Work Day (Friday, May 15th 2015), so I decided to do a blog post on this special day. I “try” to bike to work as many days as possible as long as the weather holds up or I don’t have a big “commitment” before or after work that I need to “rush” to. I bike for many reasons (e.g. health, fitness, financial, etc..).

While looking for links to share on my facebook to challenge others to bike, I found this National Bike Challenge. I’m kind of behind in the competition (1st of May) as I started late (15th). However, it’ll be interesting to get the totals for calories burned, money saved from gas usage for a car if I did had to drive, and miles I biked after this 3-month challenge. Stay tune for updates on the #’s I tally from now till the end of the summer. I’ll be happy to hear yours (post below) if you do decide to join this challenge…I challenge you!

Why Ride in Winter?

At first, it might seem to be a daunting activity—bundling yourself up to ride through winter snow, ice, rain or even just cooler temperatures. But give it a chance. I’ve been a successful 4-season rider for many years now, and I live in Minneapolis. I have never regretted trading my commute by car for a commute by bicycle.

The rewards are many. I never get stuck in traffic. I never have to wait for a tow truck to get a jump-start or change my oil or pay for gas. The peace and solitude of an early morning ride through a light January snow is something that I would never give up.

Regardless of the weather, you benefit greatly by riding a bike more. The exercise alone is an almost unimaginable reward. Instead of sedentary transport by car, the very act of going from place to place by bike gets your heart pumping, blood flowing and the calories burning. …”

Sal: I like to ride during the winter as it beats waiting to warm-up your vehicle just to drive 1 mile from work. I rather use that time and ride instead of wasting that gas and it’s great exercise. Another plus is you don’t have to deal with getting your car stuck due to snow plows causing snow drifts. However, I’ve learned to bike more when the roads are clear of ice as it’s safer. I then use my car if it’s too slippery, slushy, or too “rough”.

Health & Fitness: Trying to lose weight?

Bio: I personally haven’t had any issues with overweight, but I can share some tips on how to lost that weight that’s not needed at times from my life challenges. I remember in junior high school, a classmate of mind grabbed my cheeks hard and teased me about me being “chubby. I knew I wasn’t overweight, but I did have some “baby fat” that made me feel a little guilty. That remarked would stay with me to this day as that played a factor to my start of “trying” to be more fit. I wasn’t really knowledgeable about health and staying fit as I am know (still learning), but I remember I did have some bad choices of eating the “wrong foods” (e.g. too much candy, which resulted a lot of trips to the dentist with cavities).

I decided to do this blog after having people around me telling me that they want to lose weight, so I want to share my personal tips and some re”search’ I found that I feel are good resources to help them and anyone that want to lose weight:

More than ever, children are spending their time seated indoors in front of televisions, video games, and computer screens. This type of behavior has little positive effect on their health and instead contributes greatly to weight gain and obesity. To help combat obesity, limit the amount of time that children can watch television or play sedentary video games. Avoid offering these activities as rewards, and instead introduce fun daily activities that promote physical fitness. Kids should do some form of moderate physical activity for at least 60 minutes daily. If there is insufficient time for a full 60 minutes, integrate exercise or some form of activity 15 minutes at a time, four times a day.

    Prevention

    What has helped me personally to “overcome” this temptation or battle? I “try” to fast (see prayer) at “least” 3 meals a week. My first fast usually is on Sunday mornings prior to church service as it helps me pat attention and also to be “spiritually hungry” (that’s another topic too). The other 2 meals I try to fast are the meals that has a menu I “don’t” like (e.g. red meat) or depending on what’s going on that day (e.g. church related or some other reason).

  • 7 Ways To Beat Stress Fat

    Anxiety is a powerful trigger for weight gain. Here’s how to stop it—fast.

    June 4, 2014 Nancy Kalish prevention.com
  • “..Obviously, getting rid of all anxiety isn’t an option. But by taking these 7 steps to beat stress, you can get your cortisol levels and your weight under control—and improve your health…”

    1. Drop and do 10.
    2 / 8

    That’s right, power out some push-ups. “Moving your muscles is an effective, instant stress reliever. It actually fools your body into thinking you’re escaping the source of your stress,” says Talbott. “Exercise makes your blood circulate more quickly, transporting the cortisol to your kidneys and flushing it out of your system.” But if push-ups aren’t practical, just flexing your hands or calf muscles will help move cortisol along, he says. Even taking a stroll on your lunch break is beneficial. In one study, Talbott found that 18 minutes of walking 3 times per week can quickly lower the hormone’s levels by 15%….

    Sal: I do 3 sets of push-ups and sit-ups almost every other morning, but not to prevent stress.

    “..
    4. Give in to cravings‚ a little.
    5 / 8

    When stress drives you toward something sweet or salty, it’s okay to yield a little. “It’s much better to indulge in a small way and cut off your cortisol response before it gets out of control,” says Epel. “Have a piece of chocolate. You will feel better. Just stop at one.” If you have trouble restraining yourself, take precautions so you won’t binge. Buy a single cookie when you’re out instead of keeping a box at home; or keep them in the freezer so you have to wait for one to defrost…”

    Sal: We all need discipline, which I get mine through “meditation” (e.g. Bible devotional, which I try to repeat this particular verse daily….

    Keep in Step with the Spirit16 But I say, walk by the Spirit, and you will not gratify the desires of the flesh. 17 For the desires of the flesh are against the Spirit, and the desires of the Spirit are against the flesh, for these are opposed to each other, to keep you from doing the things you want to do. 18 But if you are led by the Spirit, you are not under the law. 19 Now the works of the flesh are evident: sexual immorality, impurity, sensuality, 20 idolatry, sorcery, enmity, strife, jealousy, fits of anger, rivalries, dissensions, divisions, 21 envy,[d] drunkenness, orgies, and things like these. I warn you, as I warned you before, that those who do such things will not inherit the kingdom of God. 22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 23 gentleness, self-control; against such things there is no law. 24 And those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires.-Galatians 5http://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Galatians%205&version=ESVBut the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 23 gentleness, self-control; against such things there is no law.-Galatians 5http://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Galatians%205&version=ESV more... http://life.goodnewseverybody.comorGood News Everybodyhttps://www.facebook.com/groups/234776209988117/Good News Addictionshttps://www.facebook.com/groups/123846551128031/more bible verses...http://smu.gs/1gyTCqB

    I recommend repeating this every morning until you get it memorized and applied in life…that’s pretty much on-gong for me! I personally recommend having an accountability partner that can keep tabs with you in a regular basis as one can’t go through life challenges on their own.

  • How to Lose Weight Naturally (22 Home Remedies) everydayroots.com
  • “.. To lose weight, you must expend more energy (or calories) than you take in. When you are using more than you taking in, your body draws on stored fat to convert it to energy, which makes the fat cells shrink. It doesn’t disappear; it simply changes form, like water to steam. While this is the basic process, you also have to take into account genetic and environmental factors. How well the above process takes place does vary from person to person….”

    Sal: Yes, we all have a sweet tooth. I “try” to eat healthy as much as possible, but I still (human) have that craving for certain “sweets”. What I do now is I “try” to do an intense workout right after I eat “sweets” instead of it settling in my tummy and become more fat. For example, it was my birthday last month and I wasn’t going to refuse the “sweets” (e.g. blueberry pie, my favorite or my “kryptonite”) my co-workers worked hard to prepare. I also had a piece of cake and ice cream for lunch my co-worker made for a couple of other clients at my workplace that had the same birthday. It was a feast on sweets that day, so I immediately used that stored sugar (short-term energy) to lift weights. I felt good after knowing I used those “unnecessary” sweets for something “positive”..

ACV contains a lot of organic acids and enzymes that speed up your metabolism and increase the rate at which body fat is burnt. – ACV detoxifies the body. When our body gets rid of toxins, all the processes (including digestion and metabolism) become more efficient. It flushes the body and helps it use the nutrients from food in the best way possible. ✖️ LEMON BENEFITS ✖️ – Lemons reduce bloating. Bloating is when your stomach becomes swollen with fluid or gas, increasing its diameter.

    “..Vitamin C Benefits

    Drinking lemon juice ups your vitamin C intake, which might help with some aspects of weight loss. The juice from one lemon contains 19 milligrams of essential C — roughly one-fifth of the daily needs for men and one-quarter for women. Vitamin C allows your cells to make carnitine, a chemical your cells use to burn fat and make energy. Vitamin C might also help you work out harder, according to a study published in “Nutrition” in 2013. In the study, participants who took vitamin C had a lower rating of perceived exertion — a self-measured scale of how hard you’re working — and experienced less fatigue than people who took a placebo, even though both groups did the same workout. It’s not yet known, though, whether just eating vitamin C-containing foods has the same effect….”

    This non-invasive test simply involves the placement of two electrodes on the person’s right hand and right foot. A low level, imperceptible electrical current is sent through the body. The flow of the current is affected by the amount of water in the body. The device measures how this signal is impeded through different types of tissue. Tissues that contain large amounts of fluid and electrolytes, such as blood, have high conductivity, but fat and bone slow the signal down. As BIA determines the resistance to flow of the current as it passes through the body, it provides estimates of body water from which body fat is calculated using selected equations. ..”

    How to Calculate the Ideal Weight from Lean Body Mass by JESSICA BRUSO Last Updated: Jul 18, 2017 livestrong.com
    “…Calculating Lean Body Mass

    Lean body mass is typically between 60 and 90 percent of your weight. If you know your body fat percentage, it’s easy to figure out your lean body mass; just subtract the percentage from 100. For example, if you have 25 percent body fat, you have 75 percent lean body mass. You then multiply your weight by your percent lean body mass to determine how many pounds of lean tissue you have. Thus, a 140-pound woman with 75 percent lean tissue has 105 pounds of lean body mass.

    It’s also possible to get an estimate from an online lean body mass calculator using your age, gender, height and weight. Equations used to estimate lean body mass sometimes overestimate it, but results are off by no more than a few pounds, according to a study published in BMC Pharmacology and Toxicology in 2013.
    Determining Ideal Weight

    If you want to find out how much weight you need to lose to get to a lower body fat percentage, use the formula:

    Target weight = lean weight / (100 percent – desired percent body fat).

    So, if you weigh 140 pounds and have 25 percent body fat, but wish to have 20 percent body fat, your target weight is 105 / (1.00-.20), or about 131 pounds. Just keep in mind that this is based on the assumption that all the weight you lose comes from fat. If you don’t do strength-training exercises as part of your routine while you’re losing weight, about 25 percent of what you lose will be muscle instead of fat, according to the American Council on Exercise…”

    -Girth Measurements

    Taking Girth Measurements ptdirect.com
    “..The most common girth measurements are taken around the midsection (waist and hip) and used to determine fat gain/loss and/or predict the risk for developing heart disease. The science behind these girth measurements is based on the fact that fat tends to accumulate around the midsection. Consequently, if your circumference measurements increase, you are increasing your body fat. In other words, you can now correlate “centimetres gained” to fat kilograms gained and “centimetres lost” to fat lost. There is also a greater risk of developing heart disease when fat accumulates higher up on the body i.e. around the waist as opposed to the hips).

    However, girth measurements (as a prediction of body fat) are best suited to a certain population. This type of test is most successful when used on persons who have average or above average body fat percentages. This is due to the fact that girth measurements tend to increase significantly when individuals are already quite fat and do not decrease significantly when the individual is already quite lean. The calculations used to predict % body fat from girth measurements can be done using an equation and a hand held calculator.

    Visit your health care provider and ask key questions about limitations or modifications that may apply to you. If you are on any medication (especially a blood pressure medication), ask your doctor if you need to follow any special procedures to monitor your exercise intensity.

    You should also get properly equipped so that your exercise sessions are comfortable. There are companies that make workout apparel especially for larger bodies. You can either shop online at stores like ABigAttitude.com or find a retailer in your area that carries plus size activewear.

    Lastly, you should also make sure that you have proper footwear.

    1. Clock more aerobic cardio. Any activity that permits you to talk but makes it difficult to carry out long conversations (i.e. aerobic exercise) is a secret weapon for weight loss, says Edward Jackowski, Ph.D., founder of EXUDE Fitness training programs and author of Escape Your Weight. Unlike weight lifting or uber-intense, unsustainably difficult activities (i.e. anaerobic exercise), most people can physically sustain aerobic exercise for long enough to burn a substantial amount of calories. It’s why anyone trying to lose weight should spend about 60 percent of their gym time on cardio and just 40 percent doing other stuff. ..”

    IS LOW INTENSITY EXERCISE MORE BENEFICIAL FOR REDUCING BODY WEIGHT

    “..The question is, then, does low-intensity exercise have a role? Of course it does. But one must look at the goal of the exercise program. If the goal is to improve overall health and reduce cardiovascular mortality, any sort of activity is beneficial. The recent recommendations published jointly by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the American College of Sports Medicine, and the President’s Council on Physical Fitness and Sports recommend that all Americans get at least 30 minutes of moderate-intensity physical activity most days of the week. This equates to walking approximately two miles per day, four to five days per week. If the goal of the exercise program is specifically to lose weight, the aim should be to maximize total energy expenditure. We have seen in our example that this is best accomplished via higher-intensity work.
    If this last statement is true, then why do most recommendations, especially for the obese, center around utilizing low-intensity, long-duration exercise to meet that end? The answer is twofold. First, if we prescribed high-intensity exercise for overweight and/or unfit people, a high percentage of them would become injured, forcing them to drop out of the program. Second, we know that adherence to high-intensity exercise is much lower than compliance to low- or moderate-intensity exercise. If people don’t perceive exercise or activity to be fun, or at least tolerable, they’re never going to stay with it. This was the professional intent for advocating low-intensity, long-duration exercise in the first place — to get people more active and to keep them active…”

First, body wraps always start with some kind of exfoliation. At the very least, there will be a dry body brushing. However, a dry body brushing is not nearly as effective as a body scrub. Because you want the product they put on your skin to be able to penetrate the skin as deeply as possible, make sure the body wrap includes a body scrub first.
