Fit Tips




At the top of your movement in a crunch, exhale forcefully to make your abs work harder.

You can improve your golf skills without evening picking up a club - throw a golf ball at a specific target on the carpet. This alone will help you judge your speed and alignment.

If you normally take a pain killer after working out, you might want to stop. They generally are ineffective in helping sore muscles post-workout, and are known to suppress muscle growth.

Count your workout reps backwards. When you are at the end of a set, you will think about how many you have left to do instead of how many you've finished.

If you've injured your left leg, don't stop working out your right leg. Exercising even one body part stimulates the nerve fibres in the opposite limb, and helps recover an injury 10% faster.

During a lat pull down instead of putting your thumb around the bar, place it on top beside your index finger. This will decrease the involvement of arm muscles, and focus on strengthening the back muscles.

To strengthen your forehand for raquet sports, lay out a single newspaper on a flat surface. Start at one corner and crumple it into a ball for 30 seconds.

To buy the best work out shoes, shop late in the day. This is when your feet are the largest. Also, make sure there is a half inch space between your longest toe and the end of the shoes.

When doing crunches, put your tongue on the roof of your mouth. This will help to align your head properly and reduce neck strain.
