I’m pleased to post this guest article from David Haas who is an Advocacy Coordinator for the Mesothelioma Cancer Alliance on his insights about the benefits of fitness and eating healthy during and after a diagnosis of cancer. Each different cancer has its limitations but if one can keep a healthy body, they can have a better chance to overcome this disease.
“One of the newer ways of thinking about physical fitness looks at physical activity in light of the way in which humans lived thousands of years ago. Prior to the invention of agriculture, a relatively recent phenomenon in world history, humans were hunters and gatherers who constantly foraged for basic sustenance. Much of our genetic code was developed in that era. While our bodies have not changed significantly in thousands of years, our lifestyles are drastically different. Read the rest of this entry »
If you like to know how to develop hot sexy legs and bottom there are two ways to go about it (1) is to take a short cut or (2) put in some hard work.
Most people wouldn’t prefer the hard work option but it will last a life time and the benefits are numerous.
So you can choose either:
1. Purchase Clinically Proven Slimming Shorts
and pretend that you are fit and healthy and only lasts while you are wearing them.
Any excess bulges would look like two ferrets wrestling in a sack.
(Remember Reebok’s $25 million fine for their “Toning Shoes”?)
2. Do this 6 week Intense Leg Training Program
(I can guarantee this works, I use it Shsshh) Read the rest of this entry »
Food should never be boring or don’t get the guilts about having a snack, that is unhealthy not the food.
If you want to try something a little different then try raw food.
You eat raw already by snacking on fruit but that can be extended to raw foods like lasagna and cheesecakes.
Here are some Benefits of a Raw Food Diet ( taken from About.com).
- Increased energy
- Clearer skin
- Weight loss
- Reduced risk of disease
The raw food diet contains fewer trans fats and saturated fat than the typical Western diet.
It is also low in sodium and sugar and high in potassium, magnesium, folate, fiber, vitamin A, and health-promoting antioxidants.
These properties are associated with a reduced risk of diseases such as heart disease, diabetes, and cancer. Read the rest of this entry »

MMA or Mixed Martial Artists are some of the fittest athletes in the world.

I’ll guarantee it will engage your mind rather than being placed in neutral, your athletic skills increase and you’ll find it more enjoyable and satisfying.
So Why MMA Workouts for Cardio?
Do you bother stretching at all? Does it really help or hinder? Can flexibility help improve your bodybuilding? … I say YES and here is why.
Firstly we are discussing static and dynamic stretching to improve flexibility. Don’t confuse stretching with warming up as they are two different animals and should be treated differently.
Poor flexibility prevents you from achieving a full range of motion. Having tight muscles gives you less muscle growth from the same strength-training effort.
How does it improve bodybuilding?
Over time we tend to become less flexible and stiffer. You might notice your range of motion start to become limited as compared to when you were younger. And performing heavy weighted exercises shorten and stiffen your muscles and connective tissues when the effort is imposed.
