Friday, October 22nd, 2021
does social media motivate her to exercise?

Introduction 

This question is often asked by people. Does social media motivate or discourage our workouts? The answer to this question stays unclear mostly. 

According to researchers, a new study has been found where for some people social media is very helpful when it comes to working out.

For some people, media posts that include images of other people or friends doing workouts motivate them. 

People get motivated when they see good working out clothes, or others checking into gyms, and also people sharing their fitness achievements.

The other half does not like or get motivated even though there are hundreds of posts about working out.

 It leaves a negative impact on them, and they start feeling bad about their body, as they think to fit in the society or earn the ‘perfect body’ tag is very important.

Exercising from Home

How often do you find yourself with nothing to do, no one to hang out with, and nothing on TV? When those moments hit do you stop to consider how the benefits of exercising from home can improve your lifestyle?

The truth is that sometimes the best workout plan for us is just sitting around. That’s because when we’re bored at home, our bodies naturally move more than they would if we were completely entertained. And more movement means better health.

This article will help you figure out how to use your downtime as an opportunity to get some exercise. We all know it can be tough getting motivated enough to go outside for a run or head down the gym every day- so why not take advantage of those moments where you have time on your hands?

Kill Your Halloween Workouts This Year With These Terrifying Tips

Monday, October 18th, 2021
Halloween workouts

No matter how committed you are, the jam-packed festive Halloween season might throw your fitness routine off its gear. Starting in early September, many Halloween enthusiasts spend their nights and weekends decorating, picking apples, solving corn mazes, watching horror movies, and snacking on fun decorative desserts. This means we don’t always have time to complete our Halloween workouts with the same year-round discipline as we might be used to.

In spite of perhaps missing a workout or eating a pastry, try to remember not to feel guilty about it. The holiday season is the time of the year when we can live somewhat carefree. You get to spend time with your family and friends and gorge on the festive treats. 

Halloween is the one time of the year when you actually get to justify eating that candy bar. So, you shouldn’t hesitate to eat it. Rather, you should make sure you limit your portion size and choose healthy, protein-rich snacks over the calorie and guilt-laden junk food. Check out Project Swole’s “healthy” Halloween recipes for some fun protein-laced holiday treats.

Another thing that you should do is not let the Halloween spirit take complete control over your health. We all know that festive season weight gains are common across the globe but what we don’t realize is that most people fail to get rid of this extra baggage and then, the next festive season kicks in. 

Don’t let this happen to you. No matter how caught up you are baking cookies or buying gifts, make sure you take at least some time out for yourself.

Why Should I Go To the Gym?

Wednesday, September 1st, 2021
Go to the gym!

To some, going to the gym is just like having a cup of coffee. But others (maybe this is you?) will need to gather the last of their energy to do it at least every week. Sometimes even if we go to the gym for some 20 minutes on Thursday or any other day, we feel like composing songs to our praise.

Let’s be honest, you already know so well many reasons as to why you should go to the gym. You’ve probably even sworn to be consistent and disciplined with your fitness schedule. Such reasoning sometimes goes out the window after a day of work or studying, and you’d rather instead enjoy a night on the couch with Netflix.

By the time you finish reading this, you will have a few more reasons why you must attend the gym and hopefully get motivated to start a new routine.

How to Overhead Press

Shoulder Press

How to Perform the Overhead Press

The overhead press; also known as the press, shoulder press, barbell press, and standing press; is often confused with the military press; and is quite possibly the best upper body exercise known to man. Sure, the bench press gets all the glory, but this is only because it is easier to lift more weight benching than pressing.

In many ways, the overhead press is actually more effective than the bench press at building upper body muscle mass. With the overhead press, we are standing up rather than laying down, which already means a better workout for the back, legs, and core. And seriously, massive, powerful shoulders are far more impressive than a puffy chest.
