Are You Sore Or Is It Something More?
Exercise is a healthy habit to establish but for those new to exercising or starting a new routine, it may be difficult to determine if the resulting soreness is part of the normal spectrum of pain or whether it is a symptom of injury. Exercise routines need to be done with correct alignment, awareness of one’s sensations as they relate to the performed action, and with modification to accommodate previous injuries. Knowing the difference between good and bad pain helps individuals to alter their practice and seek medical attention when necessary.
Men´s Health Week is from June 15 through the 21st this year and now more than ever is an important time to be discussing healthy male lifestyles and being proactive.
As stated by Bill Richardson (Congressman),“Recognizing and preventing men’s health problems is not just a man’s issue. Because of its impact on wives, mothers, daughters, and sisters, men’s health is truly a family issue.”
Exercising, eating healthier, and spending more time with family laughing and enjoying yourself are some of the best medicines one can take. As you get older, focusing on your health becomes even more important because of issues that can arise with age, heredity, and external factors. Making sure you are getting regular checkups and able to spot health issues early on, as well as taking steps to prevent future health issues, are all key.

When you improve your health by exercising, losing weight or quitting smoking, the chances increase dramatically that your partner will, too.

Kids love bouncing up and down on the bellicon's durable polypropylene mat, designed for superb comfort and elasticity. Parents are often concerned about the safety of trampolines, and there are indeed many reports of trampolines breaking due to low quality materials or poor manufacturing. Unlike other trampolines, the bellicon is designed through quality German engineering using supremely tough yet light materials.
If you’ve been looking for ways to convince friends or loved ones who are physically inactive to start exercising, the shocking results of a new study by Cambridge University might help: lack of exercise is twice as deadly as obesity.
The enormous study, spanning 12 years and involving more than 330,000 people, showed that avoiding inactivity reduced the risk of premature death by almost twice as much as having a body mass below obesity levels. The most dramatic improvements in life expectancy were between those people who were generally inactive and those who got even a little regular exercise.
