    New York : Your body’s performance in your training routine will be affected by the order that you have given to the exercises that are part of it. As Vitónica indicates, order is not a minor matter, but an aspect that requires attention on our part. One of the criteria that we must take into account with respect to the type of training we do, is to separate the routines whose objective is to promote muscle hypertrophy, from the routines we do to gain strength. How to order exercises in a strength routine Multi-joint exercises are usually more demanding than isolated exercises. Doing them at the end of the routine can cause injury. Photo: Pixabay Strength routines tend to revolve around the multi-joint or compound exercises and not in simple or isolated exercises, this with the aim of involving several muscles and / or muscle groups at the...
    New York : There are foods that are important to include in our diet because they will help us build muscle mass more easily, but, as Vitónica indicates, they also there are foods that will not help us achieve this goal and that, therefore, we should not consume. Alcohol, refined sugar, energy drinks, fruit juices and others are some of the foods that should not have an important place in our diet if we want to gain muscle mass. Here we tell you why. 1. Alcohol Alcohol provides many carbohydrates that are transformed into fat that is stored quickly when it reaches the liver. On the other hand, the alcohol that reaches the liver generates a considerable effort in that organ, which decreases muscle efficiency for the correct absorption of nutrients that maintain muscle proteins. 2. Refined sugar Refined sugar, in addition to not providing any nutrients to the...
    In 2020, our homes became our … well … everything. For most of us, the place we used to hang our hat is now a workplace, schoolhouse, playground, movie theater, concert venue, and, for many, a gym. When it came to transforming your living room into a gym, many went straight to purchasing the essentials — a set of weights, a treadmill, an indoor bicycle, or a yoga or exercise mat, and there was an explosion in online class subscription services. With all this work being done to the body, how many of us invested in our pre or post-workout care? Getting your heart rate up and your body moving is an essential part of self-care, yet so is taking care of that body. This is where exercise rollers — also called foam rollers — come into play! Foam rollers are used in a technique called self-myofascial release (SMR),...

    PeopleImages/Getty Images Protein is an essential nutrient can help you build muscle and burn fat. Moderate amounts are best for fitness goals, according to a sports dietitian.  For best results, combine protein with carbs, eat throughout the day, and use whole-food sources.

    The number of online workout options available can be overwhelming. Crystal Cox/Business Insider With gyms in many areas closed for the foreseeable future, both exercise enthusiasts and newbies have turned to online workout videos for inspiration.  Although Youtube, Instagram, and beyond have plenty of free, convenient videos, not all of them are led by qualified professionals and some won't be as effective long-term.  A quality workout will help you build muscle and strength over time, and doesn't make unrealistic promises, according to fitness expert Alex Koch.  Visit Insider's homepage for more stories.

    Getty With his impressive light heavyweight title run officially behind him now, UFC superstar Jon Jones was certain to hear warnings from other fighters about his move up to the heavyweight ranks. But the first such blast came from two divisions below his new weight class. “Go put some f***ing muscle on your chopstick legs and go fight Francis Ngannou and watch him break you,” Israel Adesanya said. “I hope he doesn’t, though. Maybe he does. Who knows?” Adesanya, 31, is currently the UFC’s middleweight champion, but the undefeated striking savant has been in a war of words with Jones over the last year or so as the two have continued to talk trash about potentially facing each other in a megafight. Adesanya revealed during virtual media day for UFC 243 that he still plans on getting his hands on Jones even if he has to move up...

    The little bumps that appear on our skin when we're cold, scared, excited or sexually stimulated are the body's way of regulating hair growth, scientists say.  Goose pimples regulate the stem cells that regenerate hair follicles – the structure of cells and connective tissue that surrounds a hair, Harvard researchers reveal.  In response to the cold, the muscle in the hair follicle contracts, resulting in tiny bumps appearing all over the skin. Goose pimples protect animals with thick fur from the cold, but researchers wanted to understand why this biological reaction has been preserved in humans, despite us having comparatively sparse amounts of hair around the body.  They conclude that our nervous system releases neurotransmitters that target hair follicle stem cells, causing them to activate and grow new hair.   In response to the cold, the muscle (pink) in the hair follicle contracts, resulting in goose bumps. But in addition, the...

    Last we checked, there’s no workout product on the market that will magically do the work of planks, squats, bicep curls — you name it — for us. The next best thing, however, is EMS or electric muscle stimulation devices. True to its name, this technology sends bursts of stimulation through a sensor to a target area on your body, causing your muscles to contract. If you put the sensor on your abs, for instance, you’ll find your muscles contracting in a way that mimics how you feel during a set of sit-ups or crunches. As a result, these tools help enhance the intensity of your workouts without any additional effort on your part. And since this type of stimulation also simultaneously increases blood flow in your body, you’ll also notice how effective EMS devices are when it comes to recovering from injuries. Take the FIT RELEIF Wearable Smart device...
    While the likelihood a Theragun will ever be on sale for under $150 is slim to none, there are plenty of alternatives out there that cost far less. Among them include the VBX Pro Handheld Massage Therapy Gun (now $139.99). Unlike other machines, which tout speeds that are well beyond ISO 2631 standards (which benchmarks safe vibration levels for human exposure) the VBX Pro utilizes oscillating vibration technology which is thought to be among the safest forms of vibration. By rapidly pulsating on a target pain point, the device helps your muscles contract hundreds of times per minute. This, in turn, helps tone your muscles, improve your levels of flexibility, reduce muscle pain and strain (as well as lactic acid build-up), and increase your bone density effectively. It’s why so many pro sports teams, chiropractors, and physiotherapists swear by percussive therapy tools like the VBX Pro in the first place....
