Hey my fitness pals, got another good read for you. Where I live in Leeds we have a fair bit of fitness chums out there ranging from Rugby players, Football players, Tennis, Runners and Cyclists but the two most popular ways of keeping fit that I see around here that stand out for me are cyclists and runners! They are like everywhere I turn at any and every given time.
Now I’m a cyclists myself but I used to run so when i’m on my way to the gym for instance and I ride my bike along the canal its full up of either cyclists or runners and although I used to run to the gym before I’ve kinda grown partial to cycling but the other day when I was in the gym i opted to go for a run on the treadmill (which I’m normally good at) but after a few mins i was out of breath which shocked me as I do cycle a good length and speed so how or why am i huffing and puffing on the treadmill. This lead me to ask which is better cycling? running? or both?
Hypertrophy-Specific Trainingâ„¢ arose out of the research looking at both the stimuli and mechanisms for muscle cell hypertrophy. Hypertrophy-Specific Training (HST) is based on physiological principles of hypertrophy first discovered in the laboratory.

As the science continues to explore the exact mechanisms of muscle hypertrophy, this error will be whittled away. Continue reading →

There is no “Most Effective Cardio Exercise.” Just like how there is no best way to workout or no best martial art. It all depends on your goal and what you want to do. Still stuck? Let me help you a little.
You are using your booty as a pivot point while you kick your legs out, and lower your upper body slightly towards the floor.
This is a very difficult exercise at first, and putting your hands on the floor for support is not only recommended, but probably necessary, because by this time you are seriously tired. Continue reading →
Detox, short for detoxification, is the body’s natural, ongoing process of neutralizing or eliminating toxins from the body. Toxins are anything that can potentially harm body tissue, including waste products that result from normal cell activity, such as ammonia, lactic acid and homocysteine, and human-made toxins that we are exposed to in our environment, food, and water. The liver, intestines, kidneys, lungs, skin, blood and lymphatic systems work together to make sure that toxins are transformed chemically to less harmful compounds and excreted from the body.
