  • Pilates Or Stretching To Relieve Back Pain  By : Steven Giles A
    Back pain is something that everyone will experience at least once in their lives. Unfortunately, having too much back pain can disable us and prevent us from living normal lives. Some people go to physical therapy and take medication for their back pain, others just take over-the-counter medication, and some people just live with the fact that it is there and try their best to live their lives. Despite all of those options, there are two that have been proven to permanently relieve back pain if done on a regular basis. Pilates and stretching are the two techniques that you can do to help alleviate your back pain.

    Pilates has been around since World War I when a man by the name of Joseph Pilates invented it. It was originally invented to help certain soldiers with disabilities improve their movements to their core muscles with very controlled and slow movements. It worked, and it still works today in pain prevention, weight loss, and strengthening. It is best done twice a day in five to ten minute increments. You will be putting a lot of concentration on your movements, so you should wear something very comfortable that allows a lot of movement. You should not wear shoes, just a pair of socks if you would like.

    An example of a great stretching and Pilates technique would be to start with a basic back stretch and combine with Pilates. What you would do is lie on a mat with your palms of your hands and your knees touching the mat. Perform a general back stretch and combine it with one or more of the basic Pilates moves. You could do this by simply holding your stomach in while stretching your back. If you choose to do this, then you are not only stretching those tense ligaments within your back, but you are also strengthening and lengthening your spine as well as strengthening your core which makes for an even stronger back.

    Pilates and stretching can be done by people of all ages to help get rid of back pain. You can do the movements at home or in a gym. There are videos and manuals that are readily available to you most everywhere to help get you started. Stretching will always help to loosen up tense muscles, and when it is combined with Pilates, there is much more control and toning involved. You are releasing tension and healing at the same time. Pilates exercises involve using the core to strengthen while lengthening the spine. Once your spine is back intact, you are going to feel so much better.

    The best thing about Pilates and stretching is that it can be done by anyone. Just make sure that your movements are very slow and controlled. Always follow instruction and do not ever try to overdo it, especially when it comes to your back. We all need our backs to function. You are not going to believe how big the results are going to be when you perform just a small amount of Pilates and stretching.

  • Here's How You Build a Lean, Mean, Muscular Body  By : Owen Scott
    Who knows how to get a ripped six pack and a muscular body to go along with it? Do you? Building muscle and burning fat is a huge mystery to the world. People are unhealthier and fatter than ever in today's world. Let me tell you how to fix the problem...

    If you're serious about getting a lean and muscular body, you need to do these 6 things:

    1) Weightlifting

    The purpose of weightlifting is to build muscle and strength. If you're lifting weights to burn calories, you've got it all wrong. Lift weights to get stronger and build muscle. When you do, your body will begin to transform.

    2) Nutrition and Diet

    The purpose of food is to fuel your body. Food is NOT for pleasure. If you think you have to have sugary and fatty food like cakse to survive, then you need some serious help. Stop treating your meals as pleasure time, and your body will begin to reward you. What's more important to you? Your health and life OR pleasure food that kills you.

    3) Cardio Exercise

    Aerobic exercise is VERY important to your health and your appearance. Aerobic exercise helps prevent fat storage and burns fat directly from your body. As you build muscle, your body becomes accustomed to your heavier body weight through cardiovascular exercise.

    4) Rest and Recovery

    This is crucial to your success. You must recover properly from your workouts. If you aren't you will overtrain and never make progress. You've got to rest, decrease stress levels, eat enough of the right foods, drink enough of the right liquids, and those are just a few of the vital steps you must take to recover properly.

    You don't want underestimate what I say concerning rest and recovery. You don't want all your efforts going to waste, right?

    5) Making Adjustments

    The same workout, same diet, same everything WILL NOT work for each and every person on the face of this Earth. What does that mean? That means you have to make adjustments to a program in order for ANY program to work optimally for you.

    If you keep track of your results and measure the correct information, you can make the necessary changes on a weekly basis so you aren't wasting any time getting the body of your dreams.

    6) Planning and Programming Your Mind

    You must plan to be successful. If you aren't setting goals, visualizing those goals, and rewarding yourself when you meet those goals, you aren't making optimal progress. You've got to plan and set goals. When you do, you'll stop sabotaging yourself.

    The results are amazing when you actually learn how to get your mind to work with you and never against you. You can practically achieve anything you want!

    So, those are the 6 steps you must take in order to build a lean and muscular body...

    Implement all of the above correctly, and your results will be so fast that you'll be smiling each and every day. This stuff really works.

    I've developed an entire muscle building and fat burning program that incorporates all of the above 6 steps. You'll want to see this as it guides you step-by-step to that lean and muscular body you've always wanted. See the link below to get instant access to this program.

But, those feelings are not just mental and emotional. There are certain types of exercises that work to strengthen your body and relieve your pain. Not all workouts are the same, and Pilates and stretching exercises are definitely proof of that.

    If you are new to the concept of Pilates, then you should know that it is a set of stretching and strengthening moves that work to increase your strength from the innermost core of your body outward. There is no other exercise like it. The best part is that they are used for pain relief and strength. Some people even perform Pilates movements and stretches to lose weight. The movements work naturally to align the body back to the way it should be. Those who experience chronic pain are highly recommended to take up a Pilates and stretching routine.

    The movements are much easier to perform than other exercise movements you are probably more familiar with. When you are in pain, you certainly do not want to do crunches or squats! While those exercises help to increase strength as well, there is also a higher likelihood for injury associated with them. Let's say for example that you have issues with chronic back pain. Pilates movements can be beneficial because the movements are very short and easy to perform. When it comes to long term results, Pilates movements will actually allow for a fuller range of motion, which is something that back pain sufferer's tend to lack.

    Back pain also tends to put a damper on quality of life. Exercise in any form is beneficial, but it doesn't do any good if you are not able to perform the movements required. All of the Pilates and stretching exercises have been made just for the back pain sufferer. With Pilates and stretching, you are able to do the same exact movements that an athlete would, without straining or injuring any part on your body. Most exercises come on DVD, and there is no need for a physical trainer. Your exercises and stretches can be done in the comfort of your own living room, and all the instructions are given on DVD.

    Anyone who is interested in core strength, more confidence, a better body, and pain relief should think about the benefits of Pilates and stretching exercises. They usually take no more than 30 minutes each day to perform, and are fit for all levels of expertise. Just a small amount of Pilates and stretching exercise each day should be enough to make a really big difference in the way that you feel. You are going to notice a significant decrease in pain, and you might even notice a couple of inches drop from your waistline. The back and spine have a profound impact on the rest of the body. Once your pain levels decrease, you will notice that your life is much better than you ever would have imagined.
