  1. Research Proves Being Thin Wins

    A recent study shows that overweight men have significantly less testosterone as they age than healthy, normally sized men. While all men lose testosterone as they age, excess fat and obesity accelerate that process.  When researchers monitored the lives of men ages 40 and above for 270 days, it became evident that men who were overweight lost their testosterone at a much quicker rate than men who were skinnier and in better shape. Intuition tells us that lifting weights and running on the treadmill are good for us. People feel stronger and more energetic when they exercise regularly. Feeling more confident and lighter on our feet, less lethargic and more social, the results from physical exercise are easy to enjoy and not that difficult to attain. Rewards come in bunches for those who remain dedicated to their workout routine.

  2. Optimal Eating Regimen for Morning Workouts

    Make sure you eat a healthy breakfast and get some calories in you before you throw on your shorts and gym shoes. But make it light.  When we exercise, as important as it is to get some fuel in us before we hit the weights and treadmill, it is  even more important not to bog down our bodies with heavy-fast-food-like meals.  Feeling bloated during an exercise routine is terrible and can cause headaches and nausea.  For those who exercise in the morning, drinking a quick Ensure, Muscle Milk or protein shake and eating a small serving of fruit such as an apple, orange, plum or peach, will provide your body and mind with enough nutrition and energy to get in an effective workout. Other nutritious and morning-pre-workout-optimal foods  include egg whites, bananas, whole wheat bagels, oatmeal and low-fat yogurt. A moderate amount of caffeine can be beneficial too.

  3. Beat the Heat and Buy a New Treadmill

    Extraordinarily difficult exercise routines should not be practiced in this sweltering heat. I live in Los Angeles and it has been tremendously hot over the past few weeks. Each and every day has been seem the temperature climb into the triple digits by midday. Although I regularly go jogging outside in the morning when I wake up,  when it's this hot outside and extreme heat advisories are as common as 405 traffic jams, I have a back-up plan. I exercise indoors using my home gym equipment. Contingency plans are necessary for anyone who is serious about constantly maintaining an optimal level of health and fitness. For example, if you religiously go to your local gym, what do you do when you go on a business trip? What happens when you go on vacation? Or in the case of today, when it is 110 degrees outside, where do you run if you normally run outside? You should have a treadmill, elliptical or exercise bike at home, so that you can squeeze a good workout in at any m
