Bodybuilding for Female Fitness

Bodybuilding and women is something that many see as a real niche and something that most men and most women dislike the idea of. This is partly because bodybuilding to many instantly means six packs and bulging biceps, this is a misconception though and bodybuilding doesn’t have to mean this but can lead to a natural figure and better overall female fitness and health. Women generally are curvaceous and men find this attractive most of the time, by toning up muscles the body can be made firmer and more curved rather than being flabby and floppy in places. Especially for women who have been through childbirth or who have lost significant weight, toning up muscles can help to deal with excess skin that is left; body building builds up muscles enough to fill this skin leading to a more attractive look. Breasts can be made firmer with a layer of muscle built up beneath them, this can be taken too far but with some work your breasts may appear more toned and firmer almost like a lift without surgery.

Cardio exercise alone for female fitness will only burn some calories, generally those that are already ready in the blood and the stomach. Cardio is important for exercise of course for a healthy heart and lungs but isn’t all that is needed. Exercising muscles increases the body’s metabolism and the more different muscles groups are exercised the better and the more weight will be lost: both during exercise and for some time afterwards. Regular work with weights in the gym will keep the metabolism high and allow a woman to burn more calories and therefore have more energy throughout the week.

Increased strength of course comes from doing work with weights and low level body building, this is a big advantage of course, as well as general female fitness increased strength will lead to an increased ability to protect yourself, make daily tasks easier at work and at home and mean that during the course of a day you can do more and burn more calories naturally in this way. If you have problems with certain muscles as well from previous injuries or often sprain ankles wrists or other joints then you can use work with weights to strengthen these muscles; sprains are often due to putting too much pressure on weak muscles that aren’t well enough developed. Working in the gym with weights means that not only the most used muscles but other muscles you occasionally need can be built up: ready to use if needed.

Long term female fitness is as important as how you look and feel short term, osteoporosis is unlikely until later on in life but you can decrease the risk of developing it with regular strength training that can start at any time in life and continue into your old age. As an older female your fitness may suffer if you are unable to use certain joints you have trouble with. Strength training in the gym though means you still keep other muscles active and keep yourself active and healthy where otherwise it is easy to slip into a unhealthy lifestyle even if you have always remained fit beforehand.

The Canadian Institute of Hair and Scalp Specialists, Top Providers of Hair Loss Treatment, Provides Tips on How to Prevent Female Hair Loss


Toronto, Canada (PRWEB) March 11, 2015

The Canadian Institute of Hair and Scalp Specialists (http://www.CanadianHair.ca), a Toronto-based organization offering hair loss treatment for over 25 years, is providing tips on how to prevent female hair loss.

“Female hair loss is still somewhat stigmatized and not addressed much publicly. However, most females will experience some form of hair thinning by the time they reach middle age, meaning it needs real solutions,” says Ken Robson, founder of the Canadian Institute of Hair and Scalp Specialists. “Thinning hair can actually occur when women are in their twenties, so it’s beneficial to know preventative measures as early as possible.”

Robson explains that diet is a determining factor in female hair loss. Not getting the required iron can lead to premature thinning and the loss of strength of hair follicles. Women who are vegetarians or vegans and not eating foods that are rich in iron may also notice their hair start to thin, making it crucial that vegetarians include greens like spinach and kale in their diet, as well as incorporate beans and tofu, which are strong sources of iron.

Here’s Help,” The Times of India, March 1, 2015; http://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/life-style/health-fitness/health/Are-you-losing-your-hair-Heres-help/articleshow/46397930.cms.)

“Scalp massages are another preventative measure that has shown some measure of success in preventing thinning hair in females,” he adds. “Massaging either coconut or argan oil into the scalp increases the blood flow, which theoretically infuses hair follicles with the necessary nutrients.”

Robson notes that women can even flip the direction of their hair. It may sound ridiculous, but when hair is flipped the same way over and over, it ends up laying on the scalp. Flipping in a different direction can add volume, Robson explains.

“With all that said, there comes a time when hair thinning or hair loss becomes inevitable and more drastic measures must be taken. But that’s what the Canadian Institute of Hair and Scalp Specialists are here for. We offer clinical treatment for female hair loss with proven results.”

The best way for a female to know if they are a suitable candidate for hair transplant surgery is to visit the Canadian Institute of Hair and Scalp Specialists’ web site at http://www.CanadianHair.ca to make an appointment.

Fortunately, Mr. Leadbetter introduced me to the Juvent device and it has simply been an amazing factor in my life. I feel healthier, stronger, more in balance, more energized and the terrible arthritis pain has all but disappeared. I am age 68 and I’m playing some of the best golf of my life.” Rush Simonson, CEO and Chairman of Juvent added, “Arlene is an incredible lady, an incredible competitor and a point of pride for all of us who work at Juvent.
