Dr. John Berardi

Since the late 1990’s Dr. John Berardi has published 8 scientific abstracts; 15 scientific papers and textbook chapters; presented at nearly 50 scientific, exercise, and nutrition-related conferences; and published countless articles online.

His first articles at Testosterone Magazine so many years ago provided me with the basis for everything I knew about nutrition in my early years as a personal trainer. Now I will turn some of that knowledge over to you in the form of Nutrition Tips written by Dr. Berardi himself.

Today’s Topic – How Much Water You Should Drink

Water is important for maintaining proper health.

Drink Water

I have always advocated drinking at least a gallon of water a day, but then some media outlets over-hype the fact that drinking too much water can make you sick, so people sometimes dismiss the importance of drinking water. So whatever you believe, the all-important question must still be answered, how much water should you drink?

I think it all had to do with some radio contest to see who could drink the most water in the shortest amount of time. The fact is that you would have to drink many gallons of water in a short time frame to make yourself sick.

Let’s take a look at a few reasons why you should basically drink as much water as possible each day.

Most vacations mean people take a break from their everyday life. Vacations can be great for health as well, by eliminating the daily stress from working 8-10 hrs, commuting, and having stressful responsibilities. They leave their routines at home and go away to have some fun. It’s great to get away and not think about work, but it may not be so great if you’re trying to stick with some daily habits. You’ll want to attempt to workout on vacation to keep your muscles limber and your blood flowing.

One of the most popular routines is a full-body workout. It can be difficult to keep up with this routine while you’re away for various reasons such as lack of equipment and training facilities. No matter the reason why you think you can’t get it done, here are a few tips to help see that you do.

Weightlifting Injury Prevention: Protect Your Back!

Shaun Stay Fit

This is a guest post from Shaun Sinclair, founder, and author of Stay Fit Bug. Shaun is a former 100/200-meter runner and professional athlete.

Look after your BACK!
Because once that goes you are FINISHED!

It really is that simple.

The spine and the muscles surrounding it are the backbones to our physical existence ‘Pun intended’.

However, it is a part of our body that is prone to injury. Now, prevention isn’t a difficult thing to do. But one thing I am certain of is that trying to cure the issue of back pain is an entirely different matter (Yes… not always easy).

  • Good form
  • Good exercise execution
  • Embracing good posture

All of those things are highly important when it comes to protecting your back. Heck, embracing good posture isn’t even something you need to worry about in the gym only. In fact, that has a lot more to do with your activities outside of the weight room.

  • How you sit at your desk in the office.
  • In your bed and how you sleep (sleeping on the floor is still one of the best things you can do).
  • How you position your body when using a computer at home, which of course, is where most of us spend most of our time in today’s world on Facebook and the like.

These lifestyle habits are highly important in regard to back injury prevention. Now let’s see how you can change your lifestyle to proactively protect yourself from back injuries.

male sensitivity disorder

There are hundreds of nerve endings in the head of the male sexual organ. And these nerve endings are primarily the reason for pleasurable sensations during sexual activity.

Some level of sensitivity does no harm. In fact, it is necessary for arousal and erection. However, when this sensitivity begins to cause discomfort and distress, it could be a problem.

For most people, penile sensitivity is self-diagnosable and also resolves on its own, as it begins. However, for some, there could be other extended reasons too.

In this article, we will discuss the symptoms, causes, and possible treatment options for penile sensitivity.
