Fitness Update…

Exercise doesn’t mean two sweat-soaked hours in the gym anymore. The new fitness is kinder and gentler, which means you don’t have to plan your life around your workout. Instead, your workout can fit easily into your lifestyle. So, readjust your notions of exercise, and put the new workout thinking to work for you.

Fact If you are breathing too hard to carry on a conversation, you’ve reached the anaerobic zone, which means you’re burning lean muscle tissue instead of fat.

Myth Walking doesn’t elevate the heart rate enough to provide aerobic benefits.

Fact Not only does a thirty to sixty-minute walk provide great cardiovascular benefits, but it’s a great way to lose weight.

3 Myth You’ll get the best results by focusing on one activity at a time. Fact Cross-training, a variety of cardiovascular activities such as walking, aerobics, step classes, stairclimbing and biking, will work a number of muscle groups and can help prevent overuse of any one muscle or joint.

My Eating high-protein meals is the best way to build lean muscle.

Fact The best way to build lean muscle is to exercise that muscle and to make complex carbohydrates such as fruits, vegetables and whole grains the focal point of your diet. Not only do they provide the energy you need to get through your workout, but they also supply your body with the vitamins and minerals necessary for peak performance.
