Bodybuilding and Common Cold Disease

bodybuilding cold condition

Bodybuilding during common cold is not a very good idea. It has been observed that in the period of disease, the recovery period is significantly delayed.

The most important thing you need to know in the period of the disease is that the muscle anabolic processes stop and the body triggers the secretion of cortisol, which is responsible for muscle breakdown, thereby performing even simple exercises may lead to an additional secretion of cortisol.

We can conclude that exercise during illness is prohibited and you not only will you destroy the muscles, but also cause substantial damage to your health. If you come after a long-lasting cold condition, after the full recovery you should refrain from training for two to three days, otherwise the training won’t be very useful.

Right after the cure you should keep a warm atmosphere around you, no matter where you are.
There a several tips for quick recovery after the Cold:
  • Take high doses of vitamin C, it has been proven that in the period of disease the body needs increased amounts of the vitamin.
  • Also, do not forget about taking vitamin and mineral complexes.
  • Try to drink lots of water along to get rid of toxins. To speed up the recovery you require 2-3 liters of water.
  • Garlic and onion are crucial in a period of illness, they contain volatile, which help the body to destroy the viral bacteria.
  • You need rest during illness, stay in bed, avoid physical exercise and get plenty of sleep.

Why do we need magnesium?

Over half of the less than two ounces of magnesium in a 130- pound person is in the bones. Magnesium is critical to the operation of hundreds of enzymes and directly affects the metabolism of potassium, calcium, and vitamin D. It plays an integral role in nearly three hundred body functions. It aids in bone growth, basic metabolic functions, and the functioning of nerves and muscles, including the regulation of normal heart rhythm. Low intake has been linked to high blood pressure, heart-rhythm abnormalities, and heart attack.

The food sources of Magnesium are mainly Nuts, legumes, whole grains, wheat bran, dark green vegetables, bananas, apricots, etc.
People whose drinking water has a high magnesium content experience a lower incidence of sudden death from heart attack. Magnesium is easily washed and peeled away from foods during processing, so fresh or slightly processed foods are your best choices.

Anabolic Steroids Side Effects: Hair Loss


The use of highly androgenic steroids can negatively act on the growth of scalp hair. Actually, the most common form of male pattern hair loss is directly connected to the level of androgens in such tissues, most specifically the stronger DHT metabolite of testosterone. The technical term for this type of hair loss is androgenetic alopecia, which refers to the interplay of both the male androgenic hormones and a genetic tendency in bringing about this condition. Those who suffer from this disorder are shown to have finer hair follicles and higher levels of DHT in comparison to a normal, hairy scalp. But since there is a genetic factor involved, many individuals will not ever see signs of this side-effect, even with intense steroid use. Clearly those individuals who are suffering from hair loss or have a familial predisposition for this should be very careful when using the stronger drugs like testosterone, Anadrol, Halotestin or Dianabol.

After this problem occur the renewal of lost hair can be very difficult and avoiding this side-effect before it occurs is the best advice. For those who need to worry, the decision should probably be made to either stick with milder substances like Deca-Durabolin, or use the ancillary drug Propecia/Proscar (finasteride) when taking testosterone, methyltestosterone or Halotestin. Propecia is a very helpful hair loss medication, which inhibits the 5-alpha reductase enzyme particularly in the hair follicles and prostate. However, it offers us little benefit with drugs that are highly androgenic without 5alpha reduction.

Getting Rid of Man Boobs


Getting rid of the man boobs doesn't come easy. It requires lots of hard work and an ample special training regime. Forget about doing hundreds of press-ups, bench presses or crossovers. They're virtually useless when it comes to shifting the fat from your chest. And a few short cardio sessions each week isn't going to be enough, either. A full-body training program that includes both cardiovascular and resistance exercises will deliver better and quicker results.

To lose the man boobs, eating right and exercising frequently needs to become a life habit. f your schedule does not have any holes, make some. Get out of bed earlier and better turn off the TV. Stop wasting time on internet social networks. Train hard, be consistent and the results will come. To the loss, aim for 40-45 minutes of high-intensity cardio at least three times a week and combine this with two or three bouts of resistance exercise, such as weight training or a body-weight circuit.
Although exercises such as the bar-bell bench press, weighted press-up and dumb-bell single-arm bench press should form part of your training routine, it's essential not to get carried away with too many chest exercises. Working the muscles in your back is also important and if you ignore them you'll create a muscular imbalance that will inevitably lead to injury. Make sure you do just as many pulling movements. Follow these simple rules and stick to a good diet and you'll have the pectorals you always wished for.

Simple Steps For Healthy Eating


Instead of giving you a complicated menu that takes forward planning to follow, we've come up with an easy-to-use meal generator that lets you eat foods you actually like while still staying healthy. We've provided a range of foods to choose from: for each meal you eat pick two or three, making sure you include at least one source of protein and one piece of fruit or vegetables with each meal or snack. We've also highlighted foods you should avoid, which may not always be the ones you expect Eat little and often because six small meals spread throughout the day is better for fat loss than a couple of huge ones. Don’t worry about counting calories or grams of macronutrients. This isn't a diet -it's just a better way to think about eating.

Focus on protein
Protein will make you feel fuller for longer, so you'll be less tempted by snacks, and it'll also provide the nutrients needed to prepare damaged muscles. Protein actually takes the body more calories to digest than carbs, so it'll give your system a helpful fat-burning nudge.

Don't avoid fat
Ditch the idea that eating fat makes you fat- it simply isn't true. You need plenty of healthy monounsaturated fats, the kind you'll find in avocados and most nuts - in your diet. Saturated fats aren't as good for you but there's no need to avoid them entirely. The ones to skip are trans fats-but you'll only find these in processed foods, which the meal generator avoids.

Go heavy on veg
Feel free to pile your plate high with green vegetables such as broccoli, spinach or leafy greens-it's almost impossible to eat too many and they're full of important nutrients. Health

Grapefruits: An Important Source Of Energy


Health

Eat one grapefruit a day for two weeks and you could see significant improvements in your appearance and vitality, according to a trial published in The Grocer. After two weeks eating the fruit, 80 per cent of the women involved said their concentration had improved, 67 per cent rated their energy levels as “excellent” or “Very good” and 81 per cent said their skin looked better. Grapefruit can also help lower cholesterol, protect and repair cell damage and aid weight loss. It can interfere with some medications, though, so check with your GP first if you're taking any.
