Looking towards 2018 🧐.. Time for plotting and planning.
I’m a BIG believer in taking a step back and setting a plan of action, and that’s not just once per year, going back over your plans whether that be healthy habits, training or even a business if you run one. I’m off from Friday which means no work until January! We’ve decided to get things planned here at @no1_fitness and Edufit.co before the 🦃 comes out.
👉🏾 What’s your goals for 2018? .
Hopefully bigger, better and ofcourse even healthier.
Yummy! White banana smoothie bowl with chocolate granola from @heyhogranola 😋This granola is not only really delicious but it is also made by people who have had a hard time in life and who weren't able to find a job in a long time (for whatever reason). @heyhogranola is giving those people a new chance. The whole company actually only exists because the founders wanted to find a way to get people to find a job and an income again. On the blog I am sharing an interview with one of the three founders (in German though).
Akhir-akhir ini lingkungan sekeliling saya lagi marak membicarakan wabah difteri mau itu dilingkungan keluarga, pertemanan dan kantor. Awalnya saya agak cuek dengan berita tersebut, sampai kemarin orang tua saya menyuruh seluruh anggota keluarga untuk di vaksin. Ternyata setelah dewasa, saya masih takut lho dengan jarum suntik ahahha, tiap kali mau ambil darah di lab rumah sakit pasti muka saya langsung pucet. Pemakaian sabun antiseptik ternyata juga membantu tubuh kita agar terhindar dari kuman penyebab penyakit. Saya lebih sering pakai sabun ini sehabis pulang kerja atau setelah saya seharian jalan-jalan ke tempat umum. Mengingat penyakit difteri yang rentan penularannya melalui udara, maka memastikan tubuh kita bersih setelah beraktivitas seharian di luar rumah itu penting. Jangan lupa juga untuk vaksin! Mencegah lebih baik daripada mengobati! 😊😊😊 #notsponsored#vaksindifteri#difteri#vaksinasi#jagakesehatan#ayovaksin#stayhealthy#healthylifestyle#betadinesabuncair#sabuncairantiseptik
Seems like when something starts to make the rounds in school it spreads like wild fire.
I know it's human nature but what most of us (and our kids) do is focus on being healthy with a strong immune system - when we're sick or not feeling well.
This time of year we always talk to our athletes a bit more about the best ways to keep from being sick, missing school and missing sessions with us.
The message is the same all year long and it really should be consistent year round.
Here are 4 tips all of our kids can do with a little help from us:
1.) Drink water - I know it's tough in school but there is time to get this done. About half their body weight in ounces is recommended and not all at once. It's always dry this time of year. The combo of that with the cold can get our kids dehydrated fast..after all why would I drink water if I'm cold and not sweating?
2.) Eat nutrient dense food - Lots of veggies, healthy fats, protein and some fruits. Minimize processed and sugary foods. You can always "hide" nutrition in a smoothie, shake or soup! Don't even get me started on how easy it is to get this done with a crock pot lol.
3.) Sleep - I can't overstate how important this is for a young athlete. Oh and just as a reminder...they can't actually catch up on sleep over the weekend. This needs to be consistent and is one of the best ways to super charge their immune system.
4.) Soap and water - washing their hands when they get the chance with warm water and soap is so key! The skin is the first line of defense and can hold its own without those chemicals in hand sanitizers but soap and water does the trick to have clean hands and fingers BEFORE they are used to eat, touch their face, eyes, ears and nose etc.
We will continue to lay this stuff out during our classes too so it's not just coming from you...weird how they most often listen to coaches before they do us as parents huh?
Hey have a great Monday and stay healthy!
Calve positioning, does it matter?
As we know, calves have consist of gastrocnemius, soleus and Achilles tendom.
Also your chances developing them are determined by genetics, if you have short calf muscles it will be more difficult, diet, how many sets and exercises you do.
Muscles that are we struggling to develop, should be as the first exercise of the training. If you want to help calves growing, train them in the beginning so you can really focus on them.
We're using them every day so, if you want to activate them, you have to try various things.
Heavier weights and lower reps, higher reps with slightly lighter weights.
In one study, subjects were doing standing calf raises with neutral position, toes pointing inwards and outwards.
What it did?
Outward rotation had big impact on activating the gastrocnemius and inward rotation had impact on soleus.
Bret Contreras said that switching your feet position can help you in long term building your calves by 10-15% approximately.
What about your journey.
Are you struggling too?
It’s so important to make sure that the people who cook at home are happy. Cooking with positive vibes and great energy makes the food taste much better. it’s appalling if the ppl who cook are unhygienic. 🤮These small tips can go a long way. #stayhappy#stayhealthy 😊 #upasana
