We know that there's no great magic to achieving the perfect 6 pack, but rather it's about a lot of hard work and clean eating. This doesn't mean, however, that you shouldn't be working out your abdominal muscles on a regular basis.

Adults who have unhealthy weights are at increased risk of heart disease, cancers, strokes and type 2 diabetes. In Canada, approximately 30 per cent of children and youth are either overweight or obese, that's up from 15 per cent in 1978.

Over my 20 years of working out, being running, lifting weights or doing the Bar Method, I have found that these are 3 fool proof ways to shake the exercise 'blahs' and get me back out there, sometimes even with a smile on my face.

In my last blog, among other things, I problematized the "30 Day squat challenge." In retrospect, although I stand behind my arguments, I wish instead of simply being critical, I had argued the same points by quoting a writer's work that I admire. I would rather try to live my life acknowledging both the positives and negatives of any situation, theory, or decision.
What is your favorite exercise in the gym? It's a question that needs to be answered. More people need to figure out what they like to do in the gym, and what doesn't work for them. There is a new fad to try each week in this world. Those fads can throw you off.
In addition to its physical benefits, dancing also promotes psychological and mental well-being. The benefits of dancing are most evident in studies investigating its impact on various conditions including Type 2 diabetes, Parkinson's and dementia, all prominent diseases in the senior population.
And more than just improving your body's inner workings, physical activity can boost self-confidence, enhance your sex life, introduce you to new people, reduce anxiety, and help save the environment. With all these benefits, it's a wonder getting active is not way more popular.
