How Leg Workouts Workout Your Tummy Effectively

www.denvertummy.com
FITNESS. It's been my theory actually since I was in college---working out your legs is a vital part of working out your tummy. A lot of "experts" laughed at me then and I could do nothing because I had no "expert' to back up my claim.

My muscles weren't bulky---they still aren't. Many folks think you become a fitness expert only if you look like Incredible Hulk.

But I went on doing my theory---worked out my legs. In fact, it's among my favorite body part to workout.

And then this guy comes along on Youtube. He's an expert. I mean, just look at his muscles and I'm sure you won't doubt that he's one hell of an expert.

And he says, it's vital to workout several other muscle groups around your tummy to effectively workout your tummy---like the leg muscle group. What he calls compound workouts.

And I'm telling you, leg workouts like squats are among the best exercises. I prefer it to running, although you should also jog and brisk walk regularly.

Squats work out your back muscles, tummy, thighs, forelegs as well as heart and lungs. What more should you ask for?

That's why my major workout these days is really a combi of squats, push-ups, pull-ups and jogs. Plus my martial arts shadow boxing. That's it.

Notice something there? I don't use any workout equipment, save my horizontal bar and martial arts sticks.

Here's the expert guy on Youtube:

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…

How Posture Affects Your Confidence Level

Try it. Make it a habit to stand erect---chest out, stomach in---and make sure you look relaxed and natural doing it. No hint of struggling. How? Well, keep practicing this posture.

And then always lift your chin and look straight ahead with relaxed, rested eyes. Even if you don't feel confident inside, that look will make people think you have it. That look and posture often earn you respect.

Now, when you see people awed at you because they think you have powerful self confidence---when in fact you don't---you begin to feel confident. It builds up like a miracle.

I tried it once. I used to stand up with stooping shoulders and often looking down at the floor. Then one time I saw how it looked in a mirror. Such a look of defeat and weakness. Then I wondered---does good posture really make a difference?

So I started practicing good posture. I studied how to stand, sit and walk erect, like a real model. I watched how models moved and imitated them. Together with my regular work…

Both Laziness and Busyness Make You Fat?

Well, it's a combination of laziness, busyness and technology. In your laziness you relegate all chores to technology in the guise of busyness. Instead of manually washing your clothes, for instance, you buy a washing machine because you say you are too busy to do it yourself.

When I was in high school and college, not only did I do manual laundry, I also used an old-fashioned water pump for it. Since we had the water pump in the backyard, my dad said using it instead of turning on the faucet would save us lots of money on our water bill. So I did that for years. No wonder I didn't get fat even if I ate a lot.



Metabolism? Well, it helped some, but I also got easily overweight when I ate too much. There was a time when I gained weight so that my face doubled in size (no, I think it tripled). It was the time when I did nothing but man our small retail store where I ate most of the food items being sold.

Here's another example. You use the elevator or escalator even if you&#…
