We’re Not Doctors, We Just Play One On TV.
Set the Trap
Trap bar deadlifts are ideal for building strength and explosiveness in the muscle groups of both the posterior and anterior chain. Performed on a box, the deeper starting position places extra emphasis on the glutes, so there is a good chance you will wake up very sore after you do this exercise for the first time.
Prime the Pump
February is National Heart Month, which is a great time to evaluate your diet. Make sure your ticker is pumping strong by keeping your lunch box loaded with optimal foods, including wild salmon, legumes, oats, chia seeds, sweet potatoes, red bell peppers, and blueberries.
Spa La La
Take off those holiday pounds with a week of spa retreat. A new study shows a week-long spa stay—including diet modification, meditation, colonic hydrotherapy, and yoga—can correspond with marked changes in our physical and emotional well-being.
Sleep It Off
According to a recent study, a restful night can result in a faster metabolism. The morning after a sleepless night, you burn 20 percent fewer calories from diet-induced thermogenesis—the number of calories your body uses to break down and digest food.
