BENDING BAR: Middle Income Muscle Developer and Fat Burner
Most middle income people cannot afford steel weight plates, weight bar and weight training bench. More so a gym membership. All we can afford is what we can make do at home--improvised barbells (of concrete) and horizontal bar, Even an improvised steel weight training bench is something beyond the reach of a middle income budget.

So what I bought, aside from making my concrete barbells and improvised pull-up bar, is a bending bar or bending spring bar. Aside from being effective and easy to bring anywhere you are, it's cheap. I started training with a bending bar in high school to develop muscle power, on to college and up to the present. It's among reasons why I developed lightning speed and powerful martial arts punches.

With a bending bar, you can develop the following muscle group:
  1. Arm muscles (biceps and triceps)
  2. forearms
  3. Chest 
  4. Back (especially for a V-shape body)
  5. Shoulders 
  6. Abs
  7. Leg muscles
Use a bending bar to develop your:
  1. Grip, forearm, arm and wrist strength (for punching power).
  2. Grabbing and pulling.
  3. Arm lock
  4. Leg stance
For various bending bar techniques that really work (and which I did), just watch the video:

With discipline and persistence, it's easy to tone up and develop your muscles with a simple bending bar. You can even use it to burn some fats to develop your abs. It's ideal for cheap health and fitness with middle income budget. To buy one and have it delivered, visit this link.

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…
