Just Cool Down After Every Exercise?

Most of us believe that cool down is very essential after exercise. If one is asked why it is so, then different people may have their different opinion. Some may say that cool down after exercise helps to get the lactic acid out while according to others it helps to cool down the tight short muscles.

One may be surprised to know that in real there is no literature behind doing cool down after zero. Experts say that it is no sense of doing cool down after any exercise or workout and its benefit is next to zero. It is true that people do cool down after exercise but it is also not false that very few know the reason why they do so. Most of them believe that it is an established fact and there is nothing to study about it.

Some people who are doing cool down are not even clear on what a cool down should be. Weather it is stretching or doing the same exercise slowly or it is just having a casual walk after your exercise. To be true, it is just an understudied topic and no one knows why it is done and how it should be done.

Few experts believe that lactic acid is good for your muscles and act as a fuel. They say that it is better not to cool down after exercise because lactic acid produced changes back into glycogen which is a fuel for muscles and if you cool down, it gets wasted.

To conclude, there is only one particular fact to which exercise researchers agree and that is not to stop all of a sudden after any exercise. According to them, while doing intense exercise, the blood vessels in your legs expand in order to send more blood to your legs and feet and in doing so your heart beat increases. Now if you stop all of a sudden, your heart slows down and your blood is pooled in your legs and feet. This may cause dizziness or in some cases it may even lead to death.

Why We Sweat – 7 Tips to Avoid Sweating for Being Fit and Cool

TOO HOT! SWEATING!

Have you ever wondered why we sweat? What really happens inside our body cells, which make us sweat? Here are also some of the tips that avoid sweating and helps you to remain fit and cool.

Why We Sweat

Actually when temperature around you rises, tiny blood vessels close to your skin open up. This excites the blood in the veins and enables them in carrying the heat in your body away from hard-working muscles. This leads to formation of water which in the form of sweat escapes through your sweat glands and appears on your skin. This sweat dries up soon and evaporates when it is exposed to the flowing air in the atmosphere and you feel some cool down sensation in flowing air.

On the other hand on those humid and really hot days when there is so much moisture in the air, it can’t absorb the sweat from your body, thus you feel less comfortable even when the air is blowing up. Also in a state when your body temperature gets above 98.6 degrees, your brain sends out a signal that tells that you are bit in comfortable and distressed. This causes you to sweat.

7 Tips to Avoid Sweating

It is a point to be remembered that your body needs regular hydration when it’s too hot outside. Your body works like you cool sports car which after the long run uses coolant and needs to refill the tank. So refill your tank by drinking lots of water with added supplements.

You should also focus on:

1.      Drink plenty of water, use a fan.

2.      Play outside during cooler parts of the day and at cooler parts of your areas where there is enough shade.

3.      Plan some indoor activities, take a dip in the pool and stay fit and cool.

4.      Dress up cool and stylish. Wear fashion clothing that is loose fitting and use cotton clothes that are light colored and attract less heat. Stay away from dark-colored clothing like black and dark blue as they soak up sunlight and heat.

5.      Keep your feet fit and cool. To keep your feet cool try wearing shoes that allow your feet to breathe and that don’t trap sweat and heat.

6.      Avoid consuming drinks that have caffeine, lots of sugar, or carbonation in them, like soda or tea.

7.      Take the extra boost up drinks with you when you are out for more hours. Whether at work or at play you need soft drinks, sports drinks, and other popular energizer drinks that can add instant energy to your body when you want some cool down. Consider adding high levels of sugar, salt, and potassium if you are working your body hard. This will also add minerals and necessary nutrients to your body.

Be Fit and Cool with Pepsi and Mentos, But be careful and never ever Mix them both or Use them both simultaneously

Hi friends this is to just make you aware of the amazing and astonishing news that I got today in my Mail Box by my friend living in Brazil. It’s in news that:

A little boy died in Brazil after eating MENTOS and drinking Coca-Cola / PEPSI together. One year before the same accident happened with another boy in Brazil . Please check the experiment that has been done by mixing Coca-Cola (or Coca-Cola Light) with MENTOS …

So be careful with yourself eating MENTOS (POLO’s) and drinking COCA-COLA or PEPSI together.
CHECK THIS OUT…


So I just recommend to my friends and people from all over the world, who just like to drink Coca Cola and love to eat Mentos that, although you can have and enjoy them individually do not ever mix them and use them simultaneously.

PLEASE PASS THIS INFORMATION TO AS MANY PEOPLE AS POSSIBLE ESPECIALLY TO THE CHILDREN, BECAUSE OUR WORLD IS VERY IMPORTANT FOR US AND WE LOVE OUR CHILDREN.  MENTOS AND COCA-COLA BOTH ARE VERY POPULAR AMONGST THE CHILDREN AND THEY SHOULD AVOID THEM, ALTHOUGH THEY CAN HAVE AND ENJOY THEM INDIVIDUALLY AND DIFFERENTLY AND STAY FIT AND COOL FROM THEM.

PLEASE Also link to this page if you have a blog or just share this to as many people you can with the help of various social sites you are seeing at the last of this post.

Look Cool by Beautiful and Young Skin

Looking fit and cool is today’s trend of the generation and people are today trying to look more beautiful and young than ever before. Either man or women both need to have cool and younger look forever. Skin is the most important part of the body which makes you look beautiful and younger. If you are the owner of beautiful, young, smooth and silky, most probably you are the owner of beautiful and attractive body and face.

Today older people are trying out many different activities and products that can make them look beautiful and younger. They are trying out various anti-aging processes which help them in keeping their skin soft and wrinkle free for long time.

If you are old and your skin is showing the marks of wrinkles you may want to keep your skin looking beautiful, cool and young for long time. Then you should use some effective antioxidants that can help you in anti-aging process and make your skin healthy, young, beautiful, fit and cool.

There are Free radicals which are more responsible for the anti-aging process and are the oxidants which are present naturally inside our body. These penny stocks & free radicals carry oxygen and combine with most of the cells within your body. As these free radicals mix inside your body, they damage the cells they encounter. Older bodies are not able to regenerate the cells quickly and show the skin problems like wrinkles.

What is “To Be Cool?”

Every man and woman on this earth wants to remain cool and be fit. One of the best ways to look cool is to do the things you like and do the things your heart says to you. One, who does what he likes and what he enjoys, will only make him look cool. You can look cool to others by just doing things, what you feel are right and what your heart likes you, to be done. People like things which you do from your heart and not just like you if you plan to make yourself cool.

If we do something special and something different from others which can make us look a bit different, can add some cool attitude in our personality. Cool attitude cannot be achieved by just doing planned things but it can just be achieved by doing things which we enjoy and make us look different from others. If you just live your life, it makes it boring but if you enjoy your life, it will make you look cool. It’s not important every time to do something special, to look cool but it’s just important to enjoy things you do every time so as to live a cool life.

Some people think that by driving or having an expensive car like Porsche, Ferrari or Mini can make them look cool but this is not true every time. Just an expensive can cannot make your personality cool. Of course it is not common and makes you look a bit different from others but along with such expensive cars you should have a good timing, noble and kind heart and also humble to make yourself look cool to others. People who show off much or make others look down are not liked by others.

You always look for things which can make you look cool. People search for such things on internet, magazines, and also try to catch the styles of actors from the movies. One should learn that cool things are nothing but common things around us, which may be cool to one but may not be cool to others. It’s just your liking, and is about what pleases you. The judgment is totally independent and everyone has his own cool world.

See the cool girl here who is trying to be cool and enjoying all the moments of her life with  a happy and innocent smile. Try to remain always Cool in life and enjoy your life to its most….

After a heavy run, exercise, work or anything like heavy workout, when you are feeling that your body needs some extra to get relief, Fresh and Pure Juice is the thing which can make you hydrated and fill with the energy you need.

Juice is basically a liquid which is present naturally in fruit and vegetables tissue. Juice is prepared for drinking, by mechanically squeezing or macerating fresh fruits or vegetables without the application of heat or solvents. For example, cool fresh orange juice is the liquid extract of the fruit of the oranges. Juice may be easily prepared in the home from fresh fruits and vegetables using variety of hand or electric juicers.

Today there are many commercial juices which are filtered to remove fiber or pulp, but high pulp fresh orange juice is a popular beverage. Juice may be marketed in concentrate form, sometimes frozen, requiring the user to add water to reconstitute the liquid back to its “original state”. However, concentrates generally have a noticeably different taste than their “fresh-squeezed” counterparts.

Today many of the companies are involving in the manufacture of  fresh and pure juices, whether vegetables or fruits. Fresh and Pure Juices business is getting world famous and is going million dollars business each year. Companies are today more concentrated on making money by providing least quality of juices that can harm the human body.

Purity of Juices – Are Fresh and Pure Juices Really Fresh and Pure?

Importance of fresh and pure Juices is most probably known to all. You should therefore focus on purity and freshness of juice while consuming any type of juice. May be you are consuming the fresh and pure juice simply thinking that it may have very effective and positive impact on your health. But it works adversely. You get ill as the fresh and pure juice was not so fresh and pure as you thought of. It is therefore very important to check about the purity and freshness of juices to extract the real benefits it can provide. Not doing so can harm your body in spite of giving some positive benefits.

But what actually is a Purity of Juices and How can you judge whether it’s pure or not

Most of the times company says that a beverage which is considered and labeled as “fruit juice”, is 100% pure fruit juice. This is the main standard that is used to define their products. Like in UK, the term fruit juice can only legally be used to describe a product which is 100% fruit juice, as required by the Fruit Juices and Fruit Nectars (England) Regulations.

However, the term “juice drink” can be used to describe any drink which includes juice, even if the juice content is 1% of the overall volume.

A blend of fruit juice(s) with other ingredients, such as high-fructose corn syrup, is called a juice cocktail or juice drink. Most of the companies provide a label to the juices they are packing and selling so it is a must to ensure about its purity according to the term used there. Obviously some of them are there which provide a fruit juice labels that may be misleading as they want to hide the actual content of it. “No added sugar” is commonly placed on labels, but the products are often made from “reconstituted concentrates.” This can have the same effect as adding sugars to the beverage as the naturally occurring fructose is still unhealthy for the consumer. It is difficult for the consumer to know the contents of the concentrates.

Fresh and Pure Juices are more popular today importantly because of their health benefits. More largely used Orange juice is really rich in vitamin C, folic acid, potassium, etc. It is also an excellent source of health nutrients which is largely used and drunk world wide.

Besides giving health to the people some drawbacks are also discussed for taking fruit juices. These drawbacks mainly arise when the fresh and pure juices are not actually fresh and pure. You should therefore focus on getting knowledge about what you are actually consuming. Here are certain points that you can figure out while judging the purity and freshness of fresh and pure juices.

• Always try to read the ingredients on the pack of fruit juices.

• Get the knowledge about the brand and make of the fresh and pure juice you are going to purchase.

• Get the information about its manufacturing date and location.

• Try to get the real meaning of the fresh and pure juice and what it is really. As if it is labeled “juice drink” or something else and not “Fruit Juice”, it is most probably not the right thing for you to consume.
