Here’s a recap of the best health and fitness articles I’ve read over the past week.
Finally an article about fitness apps that doesn’t have all the same apps that everyone else always talks about. There are some really cool ones here. I just got the new iPhone, so I’ll be checking most of these out really soon.
Nutella isn’t vegan so I haven’t had it in quite a while now. I’ve tried alternatives, which are no comparison to the actual Nutella brand, but I’ve never tried to make my own.
The best tip here is from a user named Richie Korn who says “There is a rope and supply place near me that sells to boats and docks. They have cheap prices on both manila & cotton. Anytime you can take the word “exercise” out of a piece of equipment it gets cheaper.”
There are just so many benefits of consuming green tea that there’s no reason you shouldn’t be drinking it every day. I never drink tea on days that I drink coffee because I worry about my sensitivities to caffeine, but maybe I’ll give it a try to see how it affects me.
I don’t have the time or expertise to build this myself, but if you’re into technical DIY stuff like this, you should go for it. I plan to simply buy one from Amazon when I have some cash to burn.
The link in the first sentence is the first part of this article, hence the reason this one has the word “more” in the title. I highly recommend reading both. Lots of great tips and all fun and easy to read and understand. I’m not a big fan of all of the supplement pushing going on here, but still interesting stuff.
The danger claims here about middle-aged and older people doing high-intensity exercise are interesting. I’m still really young, so I don’t typically read about things like this, but it’s good information to know and share. I guess that means tabata is out of the question for older folks.
The pancakes and brown rice pudding look pretty dang good!
What most people don’t realize about alcohol and getting fit is that it’s not just that you’re consuming empty calories, but it’s that alcohol also makes it much harder for the body to burn fat. A few glasses of wine or a couple of beers probably won’t mess with your fat loss goals, as long as you take it easy.
If you want to be long-distance runner, you won’t get there by training like a professional bodybuilder. This makes complete sense, but if you want to learn about the potentially detrimental effects of concurrent training, or on the flip side, how concurrent training can be beneficial, read this article.
