Fitness Tip#266 - December 10th, 2012

What are good exercises for people who have bad knees?


Single-Leg Romanian Deadlift
Stand on your left foot with the left knee slightly bent. Keeping your hips level, bend forward as far as you can while maintaining a straight line from head to your heel. Do as many repetitions as possible without letting your knee cave inward, then switch sides. Do two to three sets.
Heel-Unsupported Mini-Squats
Stand on the edge of a step, your weight in the ball of one foot. Let your heel sink down and pause for a second straight-legged. Then, keeping your heel down and making sure your knee doesn’t cave inward, do a mini squat by bending your knee and pushing your hips back. Repeat on the other side for 12 to 20 reps for two to three sets.

What makes a healthy meal?

Carbohydrate is most the important nutrient to replenish glycogen stores, an athlete’s main source of fuel during a workout. Oats are great carbs. Honey is higher on the glycemic index than oats, which means post-exercise its quick-acting carbs restore glycogen stores faster because honey is easier to digest than slow-acting carbs. Topping the oatmeal with dried cranberries, walnuts or seeds, this is a simple way to add energy-dense foods that help meet his total caloric needs to maximize nutrition and prevent fatigue. Milk and whey protein to repair muscle damage; berries add antioxidants to support a healthy immune system.


Have a GREAT weekend Spark Friends!

Thank you all for reading my blogs! I hope they help at least one person every day!

    I tend to switch my breakfast back and forth between oats and green smoothies. I can't get enough of either one.

    I've decided I need to go back and look at all of your fitness tips. This is another important one.
If you ever put them together is some format that is easier to retrieve and review than each separate tip let me know. That would be very handy to have.

    I appreciate the information. We need the fuel from carbs to have energy to do the necessary things we have to do.

Keep Your Eye on the Prize

“Always have a goal in place to keep yourself motivated. It can be anything from a short-term fitness goal like going to the gym three times in a week, to getting in shape for your high school reunion, to running your first 5K. Knowing where you’re headed will keep you moving in the right direction.”

    Agreed. I like to set long range goals and then break them down into smaller steps. I really enjoy seeing the progress I make over a period of time.

My Purpose in eating healthy & exercising...

Thursday, December 06, 2012

Don't you realize that all of you together are the temple of God and that the Spirit of God lives in you? (NLT)

1 Corinthians 3:16 NLT + More Versions

It's important to take care of your body. When the body of Christ needs your help we should be ready, willing, and ABLE. If we are too tired, unhealthy, or weak we will miss being a part of the movement of our community and local church. There are times when it's important for us to step up and help friends move homes or cook meals after surgeries. While nurturing your health may not directly minister to others, it does allow you to be ready to lend a hand to someone in need which reveals the character of Christ.

AMEN!!! AMEN!!! AMEN!!!

    Amen! This offers us an additional reason to stay in shape over this Advent season as we focus on helping those less fortunate then we are.

Think of Food as Fuel

“Think of your food as fuel and not as a reward or something to satisfy your taste buds or cravings. Eventually, what you are eating (fruits, veggies, etc.) will taste much better and satisfy you even more.”

    I'm trying.
My diet is getting better, but I still have some favorite foods that aren't so healthy.
