Top Five Chest Moves To Create A Strong Upper Body

If you’re looking to improve your lower body strength and power, you must make sure you don’t overlook the top chest exercises to include in your workout plan. Far too many people are not paying enough attention to the specific exercise they choose and as a result, end up not seeing the success they had hoped for from their gym training sessions.

If you make a few smart moves though, you will find that you have to spend much less time overall in the gym to get the results that you’re after.

Let’s look at the five best chest moves that you should be considering adding to your program in order to build a strong upper body.

Push-Ups

Pushups

The first good exercise to add is the push-up. The push-up is going to stimulate a number of different muscle groups including the chest, the triceps, the shoulders, as well as the core as it contracts to keep you in the proper position.

Push-ups can also be performed using a number of different variations as well, so this can help keep your workout more interesting and ensure that your muscles are always responding.

Fly’s

Fly’s are the next good chest exercise to get into the picture. Chest fly’s are going to work the inner pectoral muscles, which will help to boost your cleavage in a hurry.

If you wish you had a larger bust line, fly’s can actually help to create this appearance.

Chest fly’s should be performed in a slow and controlled movement pattern to reap full benefits and you should make sure you’re never lowering the dumbbells beyond the shoulders to prevent excess strain from occurring.

Chest Press

Moving along, the chest press is the next exercise to get into the picture. The chest press is going to work a similar set of muscle groups as the push-up did only have you in a supine position rather than a prone position.

Chest presses can be done with the back against an exercise ball as well, which will cause you to be less stable and therefore get your core muscles working to a much greater degree.

Medicine Ball Throw

Medicine ball throws are another good exercise to get into place with your chest workout plan. This exercise is going to stimulate the chest, triceps, shoulders, and all the muscles running up and down the spinal column as well since they’ll be contracting to help you sustain good balance.

This exercise is a good one to do with a partner, however can also be done on your own against a wall.

Plank Walk

Finally, the plank walk is the next good exercise to consider. The plank walk is going to firm and tone up the mid-section very well, while also stimulating the chest with each step that you take.

It’s very important to keep your abs fully contracted at all time as you move through this movement however as that will ensure that you maintain good spinal column positioning.

So there you have the top five exercises to consider getting into your program as you go about your chest workout. Each will offer great benefits that you should not overlook.

Every person is different, and accordingly, each may experience varying results. You should consult your physician or other health care professional before starting this or any other fitness program as well as making any nutritional changes in order to determine if it is right for your needs. Sensible eating with regular exercise that works the whole body is critical to achieving & maintaining weight loss.

Top 4 Beverages To Be Drinking This Summer

If you’re on a fat loss diet or simply looking to get healthier overall, one thing that you must be making sure you’re well aware of is the beverages that you are taking in on a daily basis. If you are not selecting the right beverages to include in your daily diet plan, this could be in fact keeping you from reaching your weight loss goals.

The truth of the matter is that the beverages you consume will have a large influence on the nature of results you get because they contain calories and don’t get accounted for, that is going to prove to be rather problematic.

Let’s look at the top five beverages that you should be consuming on a regular basis.

Water

It doesn’t get more pure and clean than water. Water is a great non-calorie way to hydrate yourself and it will help to flush out your system, cleansing you of toxins currently present.

Those who aren’t getting enough water and who are in a state of dehydration will notice less focus and concentration, poor energy levels, and a slowed metabolism as well.

Getting enough water is an absolute must for success.

Coconut Water

Next, you should also consider coconut water. Coconut water is full of important vitamins and minerals that will help to enhance your health and get you feeling that much better overall.

Many people are now choosing to use this beverage instead of the more traditional sports drinks, so it’s definitely something that you will want to consider if you’re highly active and looking to feel and perform your best.

Lemon / Citrus Water

Lemon or citrus flavored water is the next good beverage to be considering adding to your day. You can create this by simply adding a few slices of lemon, oranges, or grapefruit to a large jug of water, which will instantly boost the flavor it’s giving off.

This will help make getting your 8-10 glasses per day down much easier and also give you a small dose of added vitamin C in the process.

Green Tea

green-tea

Green tea is the next beverage that you should be aiming to add to your diet on a regular basis. Green tea is very high in antioxidant content, so will help with fending off free radical damage effectively and also provide a metabolic boost as well.

Those who consume a few cups of green tea on a daily basis will notice higher spikes in their metabolism, accelerating the rate that fat burning is taking place.

5 Automatic Body Tips For A Healthy Holiday Weekend

Enjoy the holiday weekend but keep your health in mind!

1. Use small plates.
Research clearly shows that people who choose smaller plates and utensils eat less without even noticing it.

Use Small Plates

2. Eat slowly and mindfully.
People who eat more slowly eat fewer calories over the course of a meal.

Eat Slow & Healthy

3. Eat healthiest foods first.
Salads are a great place to start because watery vegetables slow digestion and have very few calories. Then don’t forget to fill up with some protein as well, or grab a Fuel!

Eat Healthy Food First

4. Keep dessert small.
You don’t have to pass on dessert completely, but keep your portion sizes in check for this course.

Keep Desserts Small

5. Think before you drink.
Choose to make smart choices before heading to a BBQ because alcohol can be the difference between losing or gaining weight (not to mention your self-control). One sugary margarita can have 600-800 calories! Stick with wine or beer, drink plenty of water and remember to pace yourself. Take care of your Automatic Body; it’s the only place you have to live!

3. Exercise

Some of us have hectic schedules in the morning or don’t prefer mornings at all. However, research has shown that morning exercise increases mental clarity, focus, weight loss, sleep, metabolism, energy and mood! Life is motion. When we stop moving, we stop living, so why not integrate some physical activity in the am to get your body moving for the day!  Pressed for time?  Try yoga, pushups, jumping jacks, or run your stairs for 15 minutes to make a morning workout short and simple.
