10 Reasons You Should Never Stop Wearing Leggings

Leggings (compression pants) have so many benefits and they are beautiful.

1.Reduced Muscle Fatigue

Purchasing compression shorts, and wearing them during workouts, helps improve athletic performance by reducing fatigue. UPMC Health Beat says that wearing compression shorts helps reduce muscle soreness and fatigue during and after workouts, resulting in better, faster and longer runs without feeling quite as tired when you wear compression garments. This is an excellent reason to try a pair!

2.Warmth

One of the most obvious benefits of opting for tights over shorts or even sweatpants is the warmth they offer during the colder months. While it’s true that you need extra warmth for winter running, you also don’t want to be weighted down or get too hot during your run. Tights offer extra warmth from the length and, if constructed from a performance fabric, can help wick sweat away from skin so you stay warm — but not too warm — to continue training through temperatures under 40 degrees Fahrenheit, suggests The Competitive Runner.

3.FIT AND COMFORT

The slim fit of tights provides the obvious yet crucial benefit of not riding up during a run. In addition, the tightness will eliminate friction that baggier clothing can cause against your skin. While the concept may seem restricting, tights are made of stretch fabrics — polyester and spandex, for instance — that allow flexibility and freedom of movement. Contoured waistbands can ensure both comfort and a flattering look, and many ASICS tights also feature flatlock seaming, meaning the seams are flat and therefore more comfortable.

4.Strain Prevention

Believe it or not, compression shorts also help reduce your risk for strains. Additionally, Healthline says compression garments even aids in strain recovery. So if you’re prone to this type of sports-related injury, compression shorts may be right up your alley.

5.Protection

Even if it’s not too cold out, running tights can pull double duty by protecting the skin on your legs from the elements. Whether it’s the hot sun or whipping wind, an extra layer on your legs gives you more protection. Because avid runners hit the pavement no matter what the weather, tights are an ideal way to protect skin without having to compromise on gear

6.PERFORMANCE

Some tights even double as compression gear. Compression in general can have a wide range of positive effects on performance, including improved recovery and increased muscle efficiency.

A number of our running tights also have elastic panels for muscular support, using COREBALANCE® technology to compress leg and lower back muscles in specific areas.

Running tights also offer an aerodynamic advantage for runners looking to reduce wind resistance and increase speed. In 1986, a study by the journal of Medicine and Science in Sports and Exercise found that runners who wore tights or minimized exposed hair were able to decrease wind resistance by two percent. This might not seem like much, but that’s 5.7 seconds over the course of a marathon.

7.Increased Power & Better Jumping Ability

Want more power during and after workouts, and better jumping ability? Compression tights may help improve jumping performance in athletes after endurance events. According to Runner’s World, compression gear makes it easier to regain maximum jumping ability post-workout, which is a bonus when you’re looking to get back on the track, field, or court after an intense workout.

8.Better Recovery After Strenuous Exercise

Recovering from strenuous exercise can be a lengthy process and muscle soreness is more likely to occur when you’re new to intense training sessions. Luckily, compression shorts can aid in muscle recovery after strenuous workouts. Pressure (compression) garments may have greater advantages to improve recovery following an exercise bout, says Human Kinetics.

9.Groin Support

Need a little extra groin support, or need a sturdy place to hold a cup)? Compression shorts with cup pockets are for just this purpose. Theyprovide a convenient, comfortable way to protect sensitive body parts while you train or compete. Shorts with cup pockets are perfect for baseball and football players who need extra protection, but don’t want to sacrifice comfort.

10.Better Muscle Oxygenation

Your muscles need oxygen to function properly during workouts. Compression garments are designed to increase the amount of oxygen that they recieve, according to a publication by Research Gate. Compression are designed to promote blood flow and improve oxygenation of muscle tissue, which can enhance athletic performance during short bouts of exercise.

Top 10 Tips For A Healthy Lifestyle

Usually we start to think about our health when we are already sick. Healthy life should be a lifestyle, here are my top 10 tips for healthy lifestyle.

1.Do A Job You Love

Some healthy living choices don’t involve preventing possible harm as much as improving the quality of your life. How do you feel when you are at work? Are you happy? Do you have a sense of accomplishment or fulfillment? Or do you dread the moment your foot crosses the threshold and the hours of your life that belong to others?

Most Americans spend the largest portion of their waking hours working at their jobs, preparing for work, or driving to and from work. All these hours are spent just to pay for the place where they rest their heads for the 8 hours and start again. Many go from a hectic work life to a hectic home-life with literally no time for themselves. When put in this perspective, is it not important to ensure that the largest part of your waking day, your working hours, involve doing something that you love?

2. Drink more water.

Most of us don’t drink enough water every day. Water is essential for our bodies to function. Do you know over 60% of our body is made up of water? Water is needed to carry out body functions, remove waste, and carry nutrients and oxygen around our body. Since we lose water daily through urine, bowel movements, perspiration, and breathing, we need to replenish our water intake.

Furthermore, drinking water helps in losing weight. A Health.com study carried out among overweight or obese people showed that water drinkers lose 4.5 more pounds than a control group! The researchers believe that it’s because drinking more water helps fill your stomach, making you less hungry and less likely to overeat.

3. Get enough sleep 

Sleep has the ability to optimise mental and physical energy, and optimal levels of sleep (about eight hours a night) are linked with reduced risk of chronic disease and improved longevity. One simple strategy that can help ensure you get optimal amounts of sleep is to go to bed earlier. Getting into bed by 10pm or 10.30pm is a potentially useful investment in terms of your short- and long-term health and wellbeing. Shutting down the computer or turning off the TV early in the evening is often all it takes to create the time and space for earlier sleep.

4.Take a Tailgate Time-out

It’s an all-American past-time — the tailgate party! Tailgating today has progressed far beyond burgers and chips. You’ll find everything from cheese dip to spicy chicken wings.

Don’t despair: Your tailgate spread doesn’t have to sideline your weight loss plan. Grilled kabobs are great fare on the field. Just skewer veggies, fruits, and lean meat, and soak in your favorite marinade. Seafood, salsas, wraps, and stews are good eating, too. A Crock-Pot of chili — loaded with high-fiber, high-protein beans — is a classic tailgate dish (don’t forget the Beano).

Just remember, alcohol is packed with calories. Enjoy your favorite brew, but switch it out for zero-calorie beverages as the party rolls along. It’s all in how you play the game!

5.Stay Home When You’re Sick

This tip will not only benefit you, it will benefit others around you as well. Infectious diseases are just that-infectious. When you go to work or school sick, you not only risk worsening your own condition, but also spreading it to others. Influenza and pneumonia are among the ten leading causes of death in America. Every year, the flu virus spreads like wildfire through schools and offices. This has the sad result of multiplying lost workdays or schooldays exponentially, rather than simply allowing the time for one valuable employee or student to recover properly.

6.Exercise.

Movement is life. Research has shown that exercising daily brings tremendous benefits to our health, including an increase in lifespan, lowering of risk of diseases, higher bone density, and weight loss. Increase activity in your life. Choose walking over transport for close distances. Climb the stairs instead of taking the lift. Join an aerobics class. Take up a sport of your liking (see tip #5).Pick exercises you enjoy. When you enjoy a sport, you naturally want to do it. Exercise isn’t about suffering and pushing yourself; it’s about being healthy and having fun at the same time. Adding variation in your exercises will keep them interesting.

7. Eat mindfully 

In our fast-paced world, there can be a tendency to eat while distracted and shovel in more food than we need and, at the same time, miss out on culinary pleasure. Many of us will benefit from eating mindfully. Some things to think about here are avoiding eating when distracted, eating more slowly, and taking time to taste food properly. One particular thing to focus on is chewing your food thoroughly – not only does this help us savour food, it also assists the digestive process.

8.Reduce Stress

A little stress is good. It gives your life excitement. Too much of the wrong stress however can be downright deadly.

Here’s how excess stress can harm your health:

  • decrease in immune system function – Stress lowers the production of natural killer cells and seriously depletes T-cells, both of which kill infections and cancer
  • damage to blood vessels and heart – Stress constricts blood vessels and causes faster heartbeat, thus increasing blood pressure
  • weight gain – Stress causes the release of cortisol which triggers overeating and storage of fat

9. Pick different-colored fruits/vegs.

Fruits/Vegetables with bright colors are usually high in anti-oxidants. Anti-oxidants are good for health because they remove free radicals that damage our cells. Eat fruits/vegetables of different colors: White (Bananas), Yellow (Pineapples, Mango), Orange (Orange, Papaya), Red (Apple, Strawberries, Tomatoes, Watermelon), Green (Avocado, Lettuce, Cucumber), Purple/Blue (Blackberries, Prunes).

10. Practice the art of appreciation 

Modern-day living tends to be inspirational and we can easily find ourselves chasing an ever-growing list of goals, many of which can be material. Some of us could do with spending more time focusing not on what we don’t have, but on what we do. Our mood can be lifted by giving thanks for anything from our friends and family to a beautiful landscape or sunset.

The Most Extreme Weight Loss Methods Revealed

Everybody want to loose weight fast, but sometimes people get very dangerous idea and methods to do that. Here are my top 10 most extreme weight loss methods. DON’T TRY IT!

1.Stomach balloon

This one sounds very uncomfortable… Presented as an alternative to surgery, for those struggling to lose weight you can now have a tiny balloon inserted into your stomach to help with portion control.

The balloon only takes 30 minutes to be inserted in the person’s stomach, and it’s inflated with saline once it’s in place.
The device, called Orbera, was designed for people considered morbidly obese, with a body mass index of 30 to 40, who have failed to lose weight with other diets and exercise. It lasts for six months so manufacturers promise rapid weight loss. But we’re not sure how a balloon in our tummy sounds…
Extreme factor: 9/10

2.Tapeworm tablets

Not fond of exercise and healthy food? No worries, simply ingest a parasite to help you lose weight. At the beginning of the 1900s, tablets containing tapeworm eggs were marketed to help people lose weight. These eggs reportedly hatched in your system and stole your nutrients, causing weight loss. It wasn’t known whether these tablets really contained tapeworm eggs, but the idea itself is pretty extreme.

3.Cotton ball diet

This includes eating (you read that right), literally eating cotton balls. 

Ever thought, something used to clean makeup can also clean body fat? Apparently, few people actually make use of cotton balls to get rid of their extra kilos. The recipe to this crazy diet is, chewing one plate of cotton balls dipped in your favourite fruit juice for a week till your body gets deprived of all the basic nutrients. 

4.Paintball Fitness

Finally, it’s an unusual weight loss idea that sounds much of fun than horrifying.  Paintball fitness is an intense exercise that boosts your body’s metabolic rates and burn loads of calories. As a result, this helps you lose weight much faster and reduce the risk of blood pressure, depression and heart diseases.

It involves running an assault course while trying to dodge paintballs shot at you. There are usually three to four shooters put in place to ensure the attack is near constant to keep you always on the move. All hiding spots like oil drums, felled trees, tyre walls and huts are removed to expose you and encourage you to continue running.

Participating in this fitness program has been found to help you burn about 1000 calories and lose lots of weight within a very short period. Though paintball is considered to have several potential risks, it is a fun exercise enjoyed by people of all ages.  Generally, the dangers of paintball don’t compare to those of starvation or surgical weight loss methods. The worst you can experience is a few bruises which will motivate you to run faster next time!

5.Freeze-Dried Poop Pills

Yes, unfortunately you read that right… freeze-dried poop pills are being tested to treat obesity, and it’s got us worrying that this will become a new weight loss trend in the near future.

Apparently they’re trialling it in Massachusetts to see if feces from lean and healthy people can have an impact on insulin sensitivity and body weight, with 21 obese participants taking the tablets for six weeks.

And although the leader of the study told People magazine that the capsules are ‘odorless, tasteless, double-encapsulated’, and that the screening process for donors is more rigorous than for blood donation, it’s still someone else’s poop! We wouldn’t even do it if it was our own…

Thanks, but no thanks.
Extreme factor: 10/10

6.The vinegar diet

Lord Byron wasn’t only famous for his poems and politics, but also for popularising the vinegar diet in the 1820s. The idea is simple – drink plenty of vinegar, paired with one cup of tea and a raw egg. This combination made you vomit, causing you to lose your appetite, and weight. The legacy lives on in the claim that apple cider vinegar can make you lose weight.

Why it’s dangerous: Drinking large quantities of vinegar could potentially cause a potassium imbalance, irritation of the stomach lining, as well as the erosion of tooth enamel. 

7.The ketogenic enteral nutrition diet

This diet restricts on any kind of food intake from the mouth for 10 days. 

This is the ‘baap‘ of all other diets. People who practice KEN diet aren’t allowed to eat or drink anything for a span of 10 days, they even have to get a pipe inserted through their nose for the supply of basic nutrients.

8.The Tongue Patch

The latest piece of weight-loss craze is the tongue patch method. This barbaric method is new in the medical procedures and involves having a small piece of marlexmesh stitched onto your tongue, which in turn makes eating solid foods unbearably painful. Because of the painful experience when eating solid foods, you are forced to stick to a low calorie liquid diet developed by surgeon Chugay. While you would balk at the notion, more than a hundred people have already received the procedure and realized remarkable reduction in weight.

The procedure is said to only take approximately ten minutes to complete, but the patch will remain on your tongue for almost month before it’s removed. If not removed within this period, the tissue of the tongue can begin to grow above the patch and include into your tongue itself. Though it’s a proven weight loss method, it’s much easier and more pleasant to just put a halt into eating solid foods.

9.The Diet Choker

Ok so it’s not quite as terrifying as we’d first thought (no, it doesn’t actually choke you if you eat too much!). This contraption sits around your neck and by monitoring vibrations in your throat with a clever sensor, it can send an alert to you phone which buzzes if you go over your daily, or even the wrong kind of food. The WearSens, a metal ring developed by engineers in LA, has been tested on 30 people so far who all say it does work.

While it’s undoubtedly smart, we’re not sure it looks at all comfortable, plus our other half and kids might be alarmed if we started walking around with this around our neck!
Extreme factor: 9/10

10.The Macrobiotic Diet

The macrobiotic diet emphasizes on whole grains – these should supposedly comprise of up to 60% of all meals. Raw vegetables should make up the rest portion of the meals. Basically, the list of what you may ingest is usually way shorter than that of what you may not ingest. Choosing this weight loss method means you give up any cravings of everything and anything tasty or fun, case in point:

  • Processed foods,
  • dairy products
  • sugar
  • eggs
  • poultry products
  • meat
  • and alcohol. 

LOL That is just dangerous, hope you wont try any of these. If you’r looking for workout clothes check out our fitness and yoga leggings page.

Top 10 Ways To Boost Immune System

This one is going to be very useful, especially in the winter our immune system is at risk, so how we can help to boost it. Here are my 10 to ways to do that.

  1. Get Enough Sleep.

 A sleep deprivation can have surprisingly devastating results on the production of antibodies (your body’s infantry). It turns out that a good majority of people in a tech-saturated culture are cutting sleep breaks too short. Organize your schedule and get into a routine that fits between seven to nine hours per day. If a hectic schedule doesn’t permit this, try finding time within the day for a few power naps. To get a better sleep, you can try herbs, foods or natural substance.

2. Citrus fruits

Most people turn to vitamin C after they’ve caught a cold. That’s because it helps build up your immune system. Vitamin C is thought to increase the production of white blood cells. These are key to fighting infections.

Popular citrus fruits include:

  • grapefruit
  • oranges
  • tangerines
  • lemons
  • limes
  • clementines

Because your body doesn’t produce or store it, you need daily vitamin C for continued health. Almost all citrus fruits are high in vitamin C. With such a variety to choose from, it’s easy to add a squeeze of this vitamin to any me

3.Manage stress

Stress drains the mind and body and can change your mood. Opening yourself to stress also opens your body up to getting sick. Once sick then you’ll be even more tired and stressed so it’s important to take steps to prevent yourself from getting sick. You can manage your stress by simply slowing down. If you have a high-demand, high-paced lifestyle, carve out some time to relax, even if that means substituting your workout for yoga, blaring music to the inconvenience of your neighbors, or going for a mindless drive around town.

4.Say hello to friendly bacteria

It’s known that about 80% of our immune system is located in our digestive system. So keeping a healthy gut is very important to keep a strong immune system. Probiotics are good bacteria that can be found in whole and fermented foods, such as raw sauerkraut, miso, yogurt, kefir, kimchi and microalgae, or in the form of supplements. If you take supplements, it’s best to choose a brand that offers different sources of bacteria and one that’s ideally refrigerated.

5. Exercise Regularly

A regular exercise routine does much more than shape your body, it fortifies the immune system with proper circulation and better sleep. It shouldn’t take long for your immunity to make clear improvements. While you’re exercising, remember to keep yourself hydrated before, during and after exercising. This will help flush out toxins and transport the minerals and vitamins from a healthy diet. Also remain wary of the germ loaded bars, grips and machines in public gyms.

6.Garlic

garlic

Garlic is found in almost every cuisine in the world. It adds a little zing to food and it’s a must-have for your health. Early civilizations recognized its value in fighting infections. According to the National Center for Complementary and Integrative Health, garlic may also help lower blood pressure and slow down hardening of the arteries. Garlic’s immune-boosting properties seem to come from a heavy concentration of sulfur-containing compounds, such as allicin.

7.Keep surfaces clean

Touching contaminated objects is one of the leading causes in contracting an illness. Throughout the day you touch so many things other people may have touched – doorknobs, stair railings, appliances, your phone – and then you do the unthinkable without even realizing it: touch your face (or even worse, your mouth!). This kind of contact makes your body vulnerable to potentially harmful bacteria and viruses. In your home make sure to keep surfaces clean with cleaner, particularly one containing tea tree oil because it is a natural antiseptic.

8.Avoid antibiotics (if possible)

As much as possible, try to avoid antibiotics. They’ve been shown to attack beneficial bacteria in the digestive system and suppress immune functions. Unless you really have to take them, see if you can find a natural alternative first.

If you have a cold, sip on a cup of hot water with lemon, ginger, and organic honey. You can also get echinacea or zinc, which are great for flu and cold. Make sure you get plenty of vitamin C and drink a lot of water. If you’re taking antibiotics or any other medication, take quality probiotics.

9. Don’t Smoke

According to the Livestrong website, smoking presents a whole lot of harm to your body in several ways. It makes your immune system weaker and slows the defense of antibodies when you are exposed to outer threats. The clouds of carcinogens billowing down the esophagus rips up soft tissues, leaving you more vulnerable to an infection. It may be a difficult addiction to quit, but many former smokers will attest that they feel healthier than ever. In a few hours after smoking the nicotine levels fall significantly, oxygen balances itself out, and the body has already made immune improvements. Smoking is also one of the habits to stop right now if you want to be healthy as mentioned in my previous article about the 10 habits to stop right now if you want to be healthy.

10.Soak up some sun

Vitamin D is important to strengthen our immune system, so try to go outside a few times a week for about 30 minutes, without sunscreen, when the sun is not at its highest. You can also get small doses of vitamin D from fatty fish.

I hope this will help you to boost immune system. If you are looking for workout clothes check out our fitness and yoga leggings page.
