Should Pregnant Woman Swim?

posted on November 9th, 2013 ·


For ladies, if you are pregnant and wonder you should continue your swimming routine, this article is for you.  For guys, if you are a husband, read on also.

Some people have been believing the myth that the baby may drown if pregnant woman swim.  No, baby will not drown this way.  The baby is already “swimming” in the sac filled with fluid.  Another myth stems from the concern that a woman may contract infection from the water and it may spread to her womb.  Again, there is no medical basis for this concern.  Also, if the pool is maintained well, you do not have to worry about the chlorine level in the water.

Should You Train When Your Muscles Are Sore?

posted on November 2nd, 2013 ·


After training hard, your muscle is sore. I actually like the feeling of sore muscles because it indicates my workout is actually working – a sense of accomplishment. The training has actually “broken” the muscle fibers so that they can grow. However, on those days, I often feel like skipping gym session until the soreness has totally gone away. While days of rest is definitely required, a little soreness should not be the excuse to ditch the workout totally. (more…)

How To Fall In Love with Ketchup and Mustard Again with Condiment Gun

posted on October 26th, 2013 ·


The war has just started in kitchen. Load up ketchup in this so called Condiment Gun. Blast away at hot dog, shoot at the burgers, lay siege to steaks or attack the sausages with squirt from the gun.

When I first saw at this funny gadget, I thought that it was from Japanese, but then found out it actually came from British. This comedy cartoon pistol allows you to have mustard, brown sauce, ketchup or chili sauce. Once you are ready, you can then be in your favorite pistol based violent cowboy movie, and ask, “Are you ready, sausage?” Then, pull the trigger and you will see it lying with blood lookalike ketchup.

How Many Crunches Should I Do For Abs?

posted on October 19th, 2013 ·


When comes to exercise, I have mentioned that quality is more important than quantity. Same theory applies for abdominal crunches. However, too often I still get the question from readers wondering how many crunches one should be doing to see get the 6 packs.

I wish I could say simple answer like, “20 crunches for 1 set and do 3 sets.” Unfortunately, no simple answer to fit everyone.

For me, I will do as many repetitions as possible to make my abs to feel burned and exhausted. It probably is 20 crunches for the first set, 15 crunches for the second set and for the last set, I will do until fatigue which is about 10 repetitions normally. The key thing is to do it with slow controlled smooth movement. So, when someone told you that he is doing 200 crunches in one set, you really need to see the way he does them. (more…)

Should I Train Abs Before Or After My Weight Training Workout?

posted on October 12th, 2013 ·


When I first started weight training, I was told to do the abs as the last workout. Nowadays, sometimes, to break the boredom, I work on my abs before I start lifting weight. I know some people often train the abs before their workout.

So, which one is right, training abs before or after weight lifting?

Following are few reasons I could think of people train abdominal muscle before training other muscles: (more…)
