Foods for Workouts: Cardio An all-around healthy diet is best for any exercise routine, but cardiovascular exercise requires a balance of special nutrients. If you get cardiovascular exercise regularly (and we all should) – here’s how to fuel up. Cardio Basics Cardio exercise like walking, running and biking require energy from both carbohydrates and fat. Carbohydrates are the body’s #1 go-to source, but healthy sources of fat also give ample doses of energy. As exercise intensity changes (like due to an increase in speed or running uphill, for example), the body switches back and forth between carbs and fat to provide energy. All foods are digested and metabolized differently, so you need to think about the best times to eat foods that will support your exercise schedule. Before A Workout Pre-workout meals should focus mostly on healthy carbs, but since carbs with high amounts of fiber take longer to digest, you want to be careful not to take in too much directly before exercise.

The Key to Fast Belly-Fat Loss - Fitness Think it's impossible to exercise for less time and lose more fat? It's not — if you do the right moves. By Annie Hauser, Senior Editor FRIDAY, July 6, 2012 — Sprinting, not jogging, might be the key to fast abdominal and visceral fat loss, researchers at the University of South Wales found in a study published in the International Journal of Obesity. The study is the latest addition to a mountain of evidence indicating that high-intensity exercise results in greater fat loss and overall health benefits than moderately intense activities such as jogging. Eight-second bursts of sprinting repeated intermittently for 20 minutes three times a week helped overweight men lose 4 pounds of body fat in 12 weeks and gain 2.64 pounds of muscle, resulting in a net body-weight loss. Achieving this same effect with moderately intense jogging would take seven hours a week for 14 weeks, says lead researcher Steve Boutcher, PhD, in a university release.

one hundred push ups - initial test Before you dive in and start the Hundred Push Ups Program, you should: obtain medical advice and clearance from your doctor take an initial push ups test. The test will highlight your current fitness level and determine where to start and how to plan your push ups training program. To perform the test, simply execute as many good-form push ups as you can. Once you've collapsed in a sweaty heap on the floor and your arms have stopped trembling from the exertion, make a note (mental or otherwise) of how many, or how few, push ups you were able to perform. Before starting Week 1, I recommend taking a couple of days to familiarize yourself with the program and recover from the exertion of the initial test. Don't forget how many push ups you performed in the test and if you're still keen to improve your strength and fitness, read on to learn more about the program. * If you're concerned about your Rank in the extreme left column; there's really no need.
