Train vs independent exercise

independent exercise

We are constantly recommending ways to train we can combine different regularly in our routines. We at this time we will focus on two ways of working muscles, with separate charges for each part of the body work, or working the muscle group concerned with a burden that will arise in conjunction with both hands.

Surely we doubt has arisen hundreds of times whether it is better to train one way or another, and that after all the mechanics of the exercise is similar, but the results will not be the same. It is therefore good that we have in mind for what will work in one way or the other. Read more

Training

Fashions have always marked in fitness training. Today there are plenty of workout routines and many are those who join them.

Plantar fasciitis: Causes, prevention and treatment

Plantar fasciitis

The plantar fasciitis is a common cause of foot pain, both athletes and sedentary people. The pain occurs in the foot, at the front of the heel, being a pain that worsens when walking or exercising.

Being a common injury in athletes as much in the general population, we will discuss the causes, prevention and treatment of plantar fasciitis in this article.

What is the plantar fascia?

The plantar fasciitis is an injury that affects the fascia or plantar fascia, a thick band of connective tissue that is in the sole, and runs from the front of the calcaneus (heel bone) to the front fingers.

The plantar fascia is a support structure to absorb the impact and maintain the shape of the foot. Upon reaching the toes, the fascia is divided into five bands.

I take this opportunity to point out that the suffix it is refers to inflammation but, as in the usual tendinitis, rarely a real inflammation is present (so we recommend talking about tendinosis). In the case of fasciitis same thing happens: rarely no real inflammation, so maybe I should change the term to fasciosis (which simply indicates an alteration, without specifying what type).

Active rest between sets, a way to bounce back

Rest between exercise

One issue that has always worried us when training is the time we must wait between sets. We have often commented that the ideal is a minute’s rest, or even depend on the type of training and the person in question. Therefore, and to dispel any doubts in this post we want to give some key points about rest between sets of one form or another.

In the gym often we see people checking the time with a stopwatch between sets. This can be a solution, but it depends on what you want to achieve with the training to do it one way or another, the ideal is to alternate one way or another break, but yes, leave aside the laziness and breaks too long between sets.
