Simple Push-Ups for a Muscular Body by June

newhealthguide.org
You want to be a bit athletically muscular by next school year? Start these simple push-ups now and do it daily for a chance to be fitter by month of June. It worked for me in 2 months before. It might work for you, too.

First Step: Position yourself on the floor for a regular push-up. The only difference is, you put your hands a bit closer together, about 7 to 8 inches gap between your thumbs. Feet together, push yourself further up with your tummy also fully raised up. Stomach in. This is your beginning position. Make sure no part of your body slouches.

Second Step: Bring your body down, your chest touching the back of your hands in front of you. Inhale while doing this.

Third Step: Push your body up as far as it can go, with your tummy with it. Don't let your stomach area slouch. If possible, push your tummy higher. Exhale as you do all this. Then repeat steps one to three.

Do 4 sets, with 30 repetitions each set. Meaning, do 30 or more push-ups (do them slowly and make sure you do them right each time according to the 3 steps above) and then rest for a minute or two. Then do it again, up to 4 sets. Then do it a second or third time later in the day--another 4 sets an hour after lunch and another 4 sets an hour after supper.

If you can't do 30 repetitions, just do the most number of repetitions you can make. Don't over stress yourself. Perhaps, 20 to 25 repetitions will do initially. When you have build up strength (probably after a week or two), do 30 or more.

You will begin to feel your arms, chest, and shoulder muscles improving a bit in the first 2 to 3 weeks. Your tummy muscles may develop, too. Then you're quite improved by month of June. But do continue everything until your muscles fully develop. And consult your doctor before you start this program.

HOW HEALTHY IS BANANA CUE? For Banana Lovers Like Me

If you're a banana lover like me, you probably love eating banana cue and turon as well. Banana cue is dip frying "saba" or cardava banana rolled in brown sugar. Turon, on the other hand, is "saba" or cardava banana wrapped in egg-roll wrapper, the type used for spring rolls, sprinkled with brown sugar. Sometimes, they even put slices of langka or jackfruit in it. SM Save More outlets sellthem for only P15 per big piece.

Anyway, if you eat these cooked bananas, what health benefit do you get? Do you get all the health benefits bananas give?

Cooked bananas give you dietary fibers, nothing more, nothing less. Well, you also get some carbohydrates from the brown sugar and fat from the cooking oil. By the way, included here is sweetened "saba" which is banana boiled in water with brown sugar and sometimes added with vanilla extract. At least with this, you eliminate cooking oil.

Bananas are supposed to be super healthy with lots of vitamins and minerals …

HEALTH BENEFITS OF PATOLA: Don't Judge a Veggie by It's Rough Look

"Pulis patola" is a term popularized in Filipino movies on supposedly lousy cops. It denotes an inept policeman trained in a far-flung province where cops know nothing except probably to eat and sleep. But in the Filipino movies, the rustic "patola" cop turns out to be a good and skillful cop who manages to ruin a powerful syndicate singlehandedly.

Thus, "patola" or sponge gourd is a common rough-looking vegetable almost nobody pays attention to (some even smirks at the sigh to fit) and considered low class vegetable. Why "sponge" gourd? The core of the fruit looks like crude sponge, but it sure doesn't taste like one. Patola is  often mixed in soups, especially plain and ordinary miswa soup to add some sweet flavor to it. It's also cheap--just perfect for anyone aiming for health and fitness with middle income budget.

Here are some of its health benefits:
It's low in calories. If you're trying to lose weight, eat more of this to …

Harvard Study Says Chicken Skin is Healthy!

You used to take off chicken skin because doctors and nutritionists said it's bad for your heart. So, with broken hearts we did so, stripping the golden brown and juicy skin from our roasted or grilled chicken and couldn't believe we were actually throwing away all that goodness into the trash.

And we wondered why God made chicken skin so delicious just so we could throw it all away.

But a new Harvard study says chicken skin is actually good for your health---to be specific, your heart health. It says most of the fatty part of chicken skin (the most mouthwatering one) is unsaturated and healthy for the heart. And that's according to studies done by the Harvard School of Public Health, no less.

Unsaturated fat can lower your cholesterol and blood pressure, the Harvard school said, according to an article on The Daily Meal site titled "Doctor's Got It All Wrong!" So, if the study is correct (I'm waiting for another "study" to contradict this---al…
