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:

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 …

Apple Stem Cell Health Benefits and Why You Need Them

We all know how advanced aging damages skin quality. But plant stem cells, especially from apples, were found to powerfully delay aging and its toll on the skin. This was discovered in many plant stem cell researches.  Stem cells are plant cells extracted from plant stems. As simple as that. So they're all-natural. And they divide and renew themselves continually as long as they're alive. Imagine if your cells are like that. Swiss Malus Domestica Apple plant stem cell (malus domestica) grown and enhanced in Switzerland since the 18th century is most apt for stimulating aging human skin stem cell, lessening unsightly skin wrinkles. It prolongs or extends the life of skin cells so you get a more youthful and radiant look.  When you age your skin cells' ability to divide slows down, unable to create enough new skin cells. So you get lots more of old or dying cells than new cells. These skin cells in your body must be replaced---and here is where the Swiss apple stem cells ent…
