Varicose veins, a common condition among adults that is caused by a breakdown of the vein walls typically located in the legs, is most often linked to individuals who experience extended periods of standing or sitting, those who are pregnant, and those who have a genetic predisposition to vein issues. However, a widespread myth is that varicose veins are also connected to those who lead an active lifestyle and participate in physical activities on a regular basis.
Physical activity is something that you know is important, but you put off because you simply don’t have time. You aren’t the only one. Most people don’t ignore exercise because they’re lazy – they simply don’t have room in their schedules. At least they don’t think they do.
Addiction can affect your mind for years after your initial bout with substance abuse. That’s why American Addiction Centers and other organizations dedicated to rehabilitation treat addiction recovery as an ongoing process, rather than a one-time event.
Sunday is typically a day of rest. I often melt into the couch to vegetate, ignoring text messages and phone calls, and making no plans to spend the day with anyone anywhere. Yesterday was an exception. A remarkable exception at that.

MODERATION “Everything in moderation” is a pretty popular saying. Here are some translations: Life is short.A little bad is good for you.I do it, so you should too.I can handle it. We assume that our body can handle moderation and maybe it can but what is meant by handle and what is meant by moderation. I have heard the answers to these questions vary quite a bit.
Breathing – a totally under-appreciated exercise. I, who value the glutes more than almost any other muscle group in the body, value the respiratory muscles even more. It may be why I say “BREATHE” more often than any other word in almost every training session I conduct and is often right before I say “activate your glutes.” I will bet that most of you do not even think about breathing as an exercise for your muscles. Maybe you do not think about breathing at all. Good thing it is an involuntary exercise for most of you.
Getting the motivation to workout can be tough for most people. (Who am I kidding—everyone struggles with it in some measure.) We are programmed for the path of least resistance, and that path generally includes comfortable pants, a cold beer, and a pizza that is just above room temperature.Here are five powerful ways that you can unleash some heavy-duty workout motivation on yourself in order to get to the gym and beat on it like it owes you money:
Hi friends who like a challenge,Spring is in the air, I think. I actually am really confused lately when it comes to the weather. Is it going to be sunny or gray and does that even mean cold, cool or warm? I thought I would write a quick post to give you some background on me and the current 28-Day program. Read as much as you have time for. I am a full-time personal trainer/wellness coach of 15 years. I’m thankful to have the best job in the world.
The bench press is perhaps the most popular exercise in the weight room. It’s a test of brute strength, will, and power, and it is very often the barometer by which athletes, gymgoers and casual lifters measure their upper body strength.
