The word comes from English and it crossed over all linguistic barriers, being translated as ‘physical shape’, ‘physical state’, ‘general physical training’, ‘health state’, etc. Deriving from women body building, which was losing its popularity, fitness has recently become an official sport.

Having been a certified fitness professional for over 20 years and specifically working with golfers the last 10 years I was expecting some good body’s of …

The Rise And Fall Of The Muscle Car Era

The Rise And Fall Of The Muscle Car Era Power, speed and performance – those are the three major traits of a muscle car. When first produced, muscle cars were just pretty darn amazing because they combined the efficiency of a lightweight, mid-sized body with the performance of a high-power V8 engine and special design features that further increased the cars’ acceleration capabilities. Because muscle cars topped all other vehicles in terms of power, speed and performance, they were ideal for racing. Muscle cars were produced from the mid-1960s into the early 1970s, but the production of such beasts fell drastically due to a number of factors.

Enhanced Fat Loss with Interval Training

Enhanced Fat Loss with Interval Training In this article I want to compare traditional long, slow cardio with interval training for fat loss. From a fat loss standpoint, the more calories you burn, the better. Let’s see how good long, slow cardio and interval training are at burning calories. Long, slow cardio burns more calories during training, but interval training burns more calories overall (during and after training), because it makes you burn calories between training sessions since your body must recover from the intense bout. It’s “hard” on your body. Winner: interval training. Long, slow cardio won’t help you gain muscle mass. On the other hand, interval training makes you gain muscle mass, because to sprint or bike like …
