  1. Get Fit Without Equipment

    Don’t have the capital to spend thousands of dollars building a home gym? Too busy  to take an hour or more out of your day to go to the gym? No problem. You can still sculpt your core and other muscles with easy-to-do, free body-weight workouts. Pure body-weight workouts are exercises that don’t require free-weights. Recently, body-weight exercises such as planking, push-ups and pull-ups, have been gaining popularity for their effectiveness and after all, they’re free! You can do wonders for your body just by performing a few sets of push-ups and sit-ups when you wake up, go to bed, or whenever you have time in-between. Personally, I like to do push-ups and planks during commercials when I am watching TV. Dr. Walter Thompson, researcher at Georgia State, said “Body-weight exercises are a proven way to get and stay fit. In a time when many people are concerned with cutting expenses, body-weight exercises are a great way to feel great and look ton

  2. Cardiovascular and Strength Workouts: The Perfect Combination

    It takes two to make a thing go right. It sure does. Can we be healthy, while looking and feeling great, if we chose to ignore either running or lifting, which many people often do., while many more don't think about running or lifting weights, but those people are near hopeless, and can be addressed at another time. For now, this discussion will focus on those who do exercise on a regular basis, but have a hard time incorporating both aspects of exercising into their workouts. For those of you who do not know the two different areas of exercise, and they can overlap at times, is cardiovascular exercise (running on treadmills, using elliptical machines, rowing on rowing machines, playing sports), and strength exercise (weight lifting). A great example of of strength workout would include warming up, then spending about an hour lifting weights, and then a cool down. For example, on a home gym machine such as the BodyCraft Xpress Pro, one could do three sets of chest presses at 8 reps a

  3. Walking Really Helps!

    I have something called restless leg syndrome, which means my legs twitch at night when I'm trying to sleep. It not only keeps me awake, but really bothers my husband. A doctor prescribed something, but the possible side-effects sounded worse than my leg twitching. What I've figured out is that slow, steady walking for about a half hour, on a slight incline on a treadmill, will tire out my legs enough so they don't twitch. I can do it while I watch the news, although watching the news can get me upset so I can't sleep either. Maybe watch something boring. The idea is to get your legs tired, but not get your heart beating too hard. You can do that earlier in the day, with your regular workout, but at night, just use the treadmill to tire out your legs so you don't kick your spouse. :)

  4. 10 Ways to Lose 10 Pounds in 10 weeks

    Here Are 10 Ways 10 Lose 10 Pounds in 10 Weeks: 1.) Before you brush your teeth, do 200 push-ups and 200 sit-ups 5 days a week for 10 straight weeks. Make it happen. 2.) Instead of eating what you normally eat for dinner, substitute fish, chicken and vegetables into your diet and do not eat anything besides those three foods for dinner for the next 10 weeks. 3.) As soon as you get off of work, find a nice treadmill or rubberized rubber track, and do cardiovascular exercise for one hour. First lap walk, then 5 minute stretch. Second lap light jog, then 1o minute stretch. After you are warmed up, you will mix up your routine with sprints and walking. Walk the straight always and sprint around the corners. Do this for an hour per day, 5 days a week, for the next 10 weeks. 4.) Drink less sugar filled drinks. This recommendation alone with help you shed extra poundage.

  5. Home Gym Equipment for the Winter

    Get your home gyms and treadmills tuned up and ready for the change of weather! Soon it will be cold in most parts of the country and nobody likes exercising outside in cold weather. At least most people that work for the Kings of Cardio, but then again, we get the nice and sunny weather of beautiful Los Angeles, CA. You must not stop running and walking just because it is starting to get dark earlier and colder by the day. The great thing about purchasing home gym equipment is that once you have it, your options remain open, and you can always go back outside once in a while to exercise during winter, but make life easier for yourself and get some home fitness equipment. The most common excuse for not being able to work out and exercise on a daily basis is "Well I just don't have enough time in my day." While for most of us this excuse holds merit, we fail to realize how important daily exercise really is towards our health and overall well being. With that said, you need to carve o
