Fitness: Tips for “Leaner” Muscles

Starting Out

9 Weight Training Tips | Female Bodybuilding

This Is How Many Reps You Should Be Doing If You’re Looking to Get Lean Author picture of Tamara Pridgett March 26, 2018 by Tamara Pridgett
“..Mitchell advises splitting your workouts up into heavy, medium, and light days. Her reasoning — “Muscle confusion is everything. The body never hits a plateau when we constantly switch up the weight and rep schemes.” Here’s a sample of what your programming should look like:

Heavy weight day: Do three sets, decreasing the amount of reps in each set. Start with 10 reps, decrease to eight reps in your second set, and your final set should be only six reps. Be sure to take one and a half to two minutes rest in between each set.
Medium weight day: Do three sets of 12 reps, taking 45 seconds to one minute of rest between sets.
Light weight day: Do three sets of 15 reps with 45 seconds to one minute of rest in between each set.

Health & Fitness: What “Motivates” you and how to stay “committed” to what you started?

Why do you want to keep “healthy” ? Why do you want to keep “fit”? What “motivates” you to do one of the other or both? Everyone has some “personal” reason to do each of these or both? However, what keeps one going?

Fitness: Deep Thought-“What Motivates YOU to Workout?” w/healthfitnesslifeguy

What keeps me striving to keep healthy is my “medical challenges”. I was diagnosed “border-line” pre-diabetic (see Health: How to “fight” Diabetes? goodnewshealthandfitness.wordpress.com ) at “too” young age (27 or so). I have a family (mom’s side) history of “diabetes” and don’t want to be the “next” one in line.

What about you? What’s your family’s medical history? Whatever “barriers” you were “born” or “inherited” with, don’t let it STOP you. Instead, let it “motivate” you to “overcome” it! We all were born with some “disability” or “challenge”, no one was born “perfect”!

Benefits of Working Out

“Happy” Hormones

Feel happier after working out? You’re not imagining it coach.nine.com.au
“…Here are the most prominent theories:
There’s increased blood flow to the brain

The reason you feel so alert after a good huff-and-puff could be thanks to increased blood volume in the brain…

You get a surge of happy hormones

Researchers believe that exercising to the point of fatigue causes an increase in tryptophan, which leads to the synthesis of the serotonin neurotransmitter, which is what antidepressants target…

It gives you a sense of accomplishment

It’s not just physiological changes – there are also psychological affects that come from ticking exercise off your to-do list for the day, in the form of that little fist-pump feeling…

It helps you sleep better

It’s no secret that sleeping poorly can suck the joy out of life, so the fact exercise helps regulate our sleep patterns makes it an obvious mood enhancer…”

How to Stop Diarrhea Fast draxe.com

“..
Eat lightly — the more food you consume, the harder your digestive organs have to work. You likely won’t have too much of an appetite while you have diarrhea, so try to eat small amounts spread throughout the day.
Simple foods that are easy to digest — stick with a diet of bland foods like simple whole grains, apples, bananas and rice the first few days. These foods are easy on the digestive system and can provide some fiber to help add bulk to stools.
Flaxseed oil — this has been shown to reduce the duration of diarrhea.
Fruits and vegetables — these provide water, fiber and electrolytes. Try making a smoothie or sorbet with fruit, and steaming veggies to make them easier to digest. Monitor your symptoms to make sure they don’t get worse, however, as some people react badly to too much natural sugar.
Raw honey and ginger — some people find that a small amount of honey and ginger root added to herbal tea (see below) helps soothe their stomach and reduce irritation.

Medical: How to deal with hives, rashes, etc…?

CAUSES

Causes of Hives, home-remedies-for-you.com
“…

Hives are a common skin condition and rarely require serious medical intervention. Hives have a tendency to resolve on their own, but cause discomfort and pain during an attack. In very rare cases, hives may lead to a marked drop in blood pressure and shock. This is referred to as ‘anaphylactic shock’ and requires immediate medical treatment. Hives are generally caused by an allergic reaction to certain foods, medication or insect bites. There are also some cases of hives where no specific cause is determined. In such situations, changes to diet and lifestyle may help in preventing the condition. Contrary to popular belief, hives are not caused by stress or anxiety.

Hives occur when the mast cells in the skin release histamine and other chemicals into the bloodstream. Histamine is responsible for causing the blood vessels in the skin to leak and swell up. This results in the red, raised welts that are symptomatic of an attack of hives.Causes of hives include:

Hereditary factors that predispose a person to allergies and hives
Allergies to medications
Allergies to insect bites and stings
Food allergies (milk, eggs, nuts, and shellfish)
Extreme weather conditions
Excessive perspiration
Irregular functioning of the thyroid
Metabolic diseases
Autoimmune diseases such as Lupus
Leukemia
Liver or kidney disease
Chronic infections such as Urinary tract infections or sinusitis
Skin allergies to latex, animal dander or pollen…

TREATMENT

Natural home remedies: Hives
“…Reduce stress to help hives

‘ Stress can cause hives or make them worse. If your tension needs taming, master a nerve-calming technique such as meditation, yoga or progressive relaxation.

‘ Brew up a cup of chamomile, valerian or catnip tea. All of these herbs have a sedative effect that may soothe your stress’and therefore your hives. To make the tea, stir one teaspoon of the dried herb into one cup of boiling water, steep 10 minutes, strain out the plant parts, and drink the tea…”

Home Remedies for Hives top10homeremedies.com
“..Also, hives can occur when you get too hot while spending time outside on a summer day, are exposed to ice cold water, or as a result of stress. Moreover, many cases of hives are idiopathic, meaning that there is no known cause for the condition….

Here are the top 10 home remedies for hives.

1. Cold Compress

Most skin allergy specialists suggest cold compresses as the best topical natural remedy for hives. Cold temperature helps shrink the blood vessels and block further release of histamine. This in turn alleviates swelling, inflammation and itching.

Wrap some ice cubes in a cloth. Place it over the affected skin for 10 minutes at a time, three or four times a day.
You can also take a cool bath or shower as needed to calm skin inflamed by hives….

3. Apple Cider Vinegar

Apple cider vinegar is another good remedy for hives. Its antihistamine properties will help relieve inflammation quickly and regulate the body’s immune system response. It also plays a key role in restoring your overall skin health….

6. Aloe Vera

Aloe vera gel is another natural remedy for hives. It contains anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial properties that help reduce redness, inflammation and itching when applied topically. Also, when taken internally, it stimulates immunity and helps eliminate inflammatory toxins…”

5. Use These Supplements

Digestive Enzymes — Digestive enzymes aid the digestive system in fully breaking down food particles, and it’s a vital food allergy remedy. The incomplete digestion of food proteins may be linked to food allergies and can cause gastrointestinal symptoms. (22)

Probiotics — Good bacteria can help the immune system deal with food more favorably. A 2001 study published in the Journal of Allergy and Clinical Immunology found that differences in neonatal gut microbiota precede the development of atopy, suggesting a role for commensal intestinal bacteria in the preventing of allergies. This research had lead to the hypothesis that probiotics may promote oral tolerance. To boost the good bacteria in your gut, take 50 billion organisms daily. (23)..”

How to Gain Weight Naturally if You’re Skinny | Build Muscle For Skinny Guys – Weight Gain Tips Men

How to Gain Weight : The three ingredients to go from skinny to muscular are nutrition, training and consistency. Here are the most important tips to gain weight for skinny hardgainers and ectomorphs… Eat More. Eat more calories than your body burns. How much depends on your metabolism and activity levels. But if you’re not gaining weight, you’re not eating enough. Eat More Meals. Small meals are easier to eat than big ones. They don’t make you feel stuffed. Wake up earlier, eat breakfast, and then eat 3-4 more meals a day. Eat Caloric Dense Foods. Food high in carbs and/or fats has more calories per serving. It takes less eating to create a caloric surplus. Bulk on pasta, dried fruits, nuts, etc. Eat More Protein. Your muscles need protein to recover from your workouts and grow bigger. Eat a whole source of protein with each meal – meat, chicken, fish, eggs, etc Go Liquid. Blended food digests more easily than solid food. Make weight gainer shakes by mixing oats, milk, banana, peanut butter and whey protein in your blender. Track Calories. Skinny guys over-estimate how much they eat. They think they eat a lot but they don’t. Track your calorie intake to make sure you’re eating enough to gain weight. Lift Heavy. Stop wasting time with curls and flies. Do free weight, compounds like Squats and Deadlifts instead. They trigger more strength and muscle gains to gain weight. Be Consistent. If you eat a lot today but little the rest of the week, you won’t gain weight. You must consistently eat more than you burn to increase your body-weight. Weight Goals for Men How much weight do you have to gain to stop looking skinny? A simple rule is to take your height in centimeter, substract 100, and that’s your goal weight in kg. Anything less you’ll always look skinny. Here’s a table with minimum goal weights for skinny guys, and maximum muscular weights.

Sal: 3-I take various whey protein powder supplements after each workout. In fact, I try to change the brand each time I finish one container to bring that variety and so my muscles won’t be so used to the “same” one. I take the powder (5 mg) mix with goat milk powder in a container to shake it ONLY after my leg workouts. I get my protein sources from other areas (e.g. greek yogurt , protein bar (variety depending on what’s on sale), etc..) as post-workout snack within 30 minutes. During this time, I can try to make my meal (depending on the day and time I workout). For example, during supper-I would cook chicken (no hormones), turkey, salmon, or tuna.

Sal: In regarding the health area, I take various vitamins throughout the day..

AM-Vitamin C

The 18 Best Healthy Foods to Gain Weight Fast healthline.com
“..Here are 18 of the best foods to help you gain weight or add muscle, the healthy way.

..2. Milk

Milk has been used as a weight gainer or muscle builder for decades (1).

It provides a good balance of proteins, carbs and fats and is a good source of calcium, as well as other vitamins and minerals (2).

For those trying to add more muscle, milk is an excellent protein source that provides both casein and whey proteins. Research has even shown it can help you add muscle when combined with weight lifting (3, 4).

Additionally, studies have found that milk, or whey and casein combined, can lead to greater mass gain than other protein sources (4, 5).

Try drinking around one or two glasses as a snack, with a meal, or before and after a workout if you are training…

6. Potatoes and Starches

Potatoes and other starchy foods are a very easy and cost-effective way to add in extra calories.

Try to choose one of these healthy sources of starchy carbs:

Quinoa
Oats
Corn
Buckwheat
Potatoes and sweet potatoes…

Sal: I fry these in olive oil almost after every upper body workkouts! It’s a great pre-snack while making /cooking supper!

” Squash
Winter root vegetables
Beans and legumes…

7. Salmon and Oily Fish

Like red meat, salmon and oily fish are excellent sources of protein and important healthy fats…

8. Protein Supplements

Taking protein supplements is a common strategy for athletes and bodybuilders who want to gain weight.

Whey protein supplements and mass gainers can be a very easy and cost-effective strategy to gain weight, especially when combined with strength training (18, 19).

Some people think whey protein is unhealthy or unnatural, but this isn’t the case. Whey protein is made from dairy and has been shown to improve markers of health and reduce disease risk (20, 21, 22).

It may be even more important if you’re also training since your daily protein requirements increase..

Activities for Enhancing the Right Brain by RAE CASTO | Last Updated: Aug 14, 2017 livestrong.com
“..
Enhancing Creativity

The rational left brain hemisphere can stop the carefree right brain hemisphere from exploring new ideas. You can re-train your brain to think outside-the-box by using methods that enhance creativity.

Contour drawing is a simple artist’s exercise that develops an individual’s ability to perceive “spatial” relationships–that is, how physical objects occupy visual space.

Place an object on the table in front of you. Follow the outside edges of the object with your eyes. Using a blank sheet of paper and a pencil, draw a continuous outline of the item without looking down at your paper or lifting your pencil. As you do this, notice a strong temptation to stop and examine the drawing. That is your left brain trying to make sense of a right-brained activity.

If you enjoy the game of identifying a melody by only a few notes, it is because you are allowing your creative side to take control. Playing a musical instrument “by ear” without sheet music or composing an original tune are additional methods of right brain enhancement.

Brain Fitness

Whatever your cognitive tendency, left- or right-brained deficiencies can be corrected through brain training exercises. Achieve optimal brain fitness by building a balanced creative and analytic brain.

When you were very young you used all of your senses – seeing, hearing, touching, tasting and smelling things – that’s how you learned to understand your world.

To be creative and imaginative, you need to give your senses a chance to work again – this video has some pointers for practice. It is just one of the Memory Foundation’s many brain tools which help you improve your brain and grow new brain connections. Dr Allison Lamont PhD, MA, M.APS and Gillian Eadie MEd, BA, Dip Tchg focus on challenging your brain to grow the new brain connections you need as a buffer against memory loss in older age. Baby boomers need this information to keep brain fit! It’s a prescription-free way to fight back against Alzheimer’s and dementia. When you are 50+ is the best time to start.

You’ll find lots more at: http://memory.foundation

And you can get access to more help with the three-part brain training program, Brain Tune, that teaches you strategies for overcoming those annoying everyday forgetting like people’s names, where you left the car-keys and why you didn’t remember to get milk at the supermarket.

And you’ll love this easy-read best-seller, ‘Seven Second Memory: Memory Techniques that will change your life’ written by Dr Lamont and Gillian Eadie.. Sold in 40 countries. It’s a great gift for your parents, too:

Not sure if you are Left brain or Right brain?

You use your Right brain for things that engage your your creative side and Left brain for actions that require reasoning and logic. A ‘Right-brain’ people tend to be more relaxed, artistic and imaginative.

You’ve probably heard that people are supposed to be one or the other and, in a way, there is some evidence that each of the two hemispheres of the brain tend to be activated for different kinds of tasks.

But the truth is, of course, that EVERY memory task works better if ALL areas of the brain are used.

Keep your brain challenged and brain-fit, no matter what age you are. And come on over to http://memory.foundation for lots more about these topics.

Did you try the Right brain/Left brain exercise that helps you practise using both sides of the brain?
