Diet (Investigative) Javier Elizandro Borboa Padilla Nowadays we have a lot of health problems, especially on diets because we don’t know how to eat and what we need to eat. We believe that we should eat less food in place of eating better food and in a correct proportion. Everybody wants to be fit and thin but the solution isn’t to stop eating, the solution we are looking for is a good diet and exercise for a healthy life. Fast food and a busy life have as a consequence a bad diet which produces fat people and a bad nutrition. They are diseases related with our eating habits like anemia, high blood pressure, beriberi and more. Nowadays people need to visit a nutritionist so they know what to eat for a healthy life.

There are different types of diets depending on what you want, this is a really good diet in case you want to eat healthy and eat tasty food. “This is a low-calorie diet based on The Biggest Loser pyramid of 4-3-2-1 (four servings of fruits and veggies; three of lean protein; two of whole grains; and one "extra"), along with good old-fashioned exercise. Eat a diet based largely on fruits, vegetables and lean protein, add a heavy dose of physical activity and you will lose weight, lower cholesterol, decrease blood pressure, and become stronger and more energized.�

Chest (How to)Javier Elizandro Borboa Padilla For a nice chest work out you’ll need a warm up first, you need to stretch chest area; you can use a bar if you want or for a complete warm up running for 15 minutes provides you a complete body warm up. Depending on the results you want, mass muscle volume or a ripped chest you’ll have to do different kind of exercise. For muscle volume you need to do a few repetitions with a lot of weight and more sets, for example on bench press, remember that you need to carry the weight you use without forcing your body, because with more weight the exercise won’t be realize properly and won’t be useful. A few repetitions with enough weight to carry shows to your body that you need more strength to carry weight so your muscle need to be strong enough to carry this weight so your muscle volume will grow, if you want faster results protein can be useful and show results in a shorter period of time. For beginners here is a routine for starting chest workout for muscle mass volume example:

Week One - 135 pounds x 3/3/3/3/3/3/3/3/3/3

Week Two - 140 pounds x 3/3/3/3/3/3/3/3/3/3

Week Three - 145 pounds x 3/3/3/3/3/3/3/3/2/1

Week Four - 150 pounds x 3/3/3/3/3/3/3/2

Week Five - 155 pounds x 3/3/3/3/3/3/3

Week Six - 160 pounds x 3/3/3/3/3/3/3

Week Seven - 165 pounds x 3/3/3/3/3/3/3

Week Eight - 170 pounds x 3/3/3/3/3/3/1

In conclusion. For the 10 x 3 sets you: 1. Add 5 pounds every week. 2. Drop a set when you fail to reach 3 reps. 3. Stop the cycle when you down to one triple, or fewer reps. For a ripped chest you can use also bench press but inverting the repetitions and sets, do a few sets with a lot of repetitions and a few weights, for example: Do four sets of 15 repetitions to add definition to your chest, but you can work ripped chest area without using bench press and working out at home. Push ups can be very helpful for a ripped chest area doing 4 sets with 25 repetitions also provides a good routine for a ripped chest area.

Jared Leto’s routine for staying ripped (Profile) Javier Elizandro Borboa Padilla Some people look for muscular mass volume, but Jared Leto isn’t a fan of bulky. He prefers to keep ripped and lean and he keep in great shape because his number one rule is cardio, even during band tours. Jared mention that as you grow bigger muscles your heart make exerts more effort to pump blood and cause blood circulation, therefore your heart tires faster and your cardio endurance is shorter. For staying ripped Jared practice cycling, he rides approximately 10 miles to stay in shape. Consistent cardio is the first step to get abs, miles of cycling or other cardio exercises will burn the fat of the abdominal area and reveal the abdominal muscles. Also Jared Leto is a vegan; his diet helps him for staying ripped because he doesn’t consume food with a lot of fat on it and his consistent cardio cycling it’s all he needs for staying ripped. It’s important to remember that also diets affect on our body and we have to keep a balance diet to be healthy and have a great body. So if you want to have a ripped body like Jared Leto, now you know his secret, buy a bicycle or enter a gym near your house and start cycling.

Why is doing exercise a wise decision? The carbohydrates that we eat are converted in glucose to obtain energy to realize the activities that we do during the day. If we do not use all the glucose produced it’s converted in to glycogen or fat. Doing exercise it’s a good way to improve our body; because the excess of glucose that is produced in our body it is used and not transformed into fat. This process is called metabolism when we are doing exercise the glucose transforms into energy in the muscles called ATP, when the glucose that we consumed is over the body use fat to improve this energy. The fat that is used to be transformed into glucose to make energy will have an effect in our body like losing weight, prevent diseases like diabetes, high pressure, heart attack; and have a better life with a good body. Exercise has a benefit in our health, shape and mind. We have to transform exercise into an habit to improve our life and to become a better person. People have to eat a lot of carbohydrates like bread, banana, beans, rice, nuts, flours, etc. or eat simple carbohydrates called sugars like chocolate, pasta, honey or in fruits.

Drugs in sports Athletes nowadays are in trouble with substances called steroids, alcohol or marihuana. Athletes like Lance Armstrong, Mark McGwire, Adriano Leite Ribeiro, and Julio Cesar Chaves Jr. They use them to improve the performance or prejudice their career, but the athletes don’t care the sanctions that the institutions apply to them because these penalties are very cheap. Anabolics have consequences for everyone; people used this substance just to improve their athletic capacity. But they can cause a lot of diseases like liver tumors, acne, risk of heart disease, psychological disorders, etc. People that consume alcohol can have many problems like losing friends, losing jobs, separation of the family, etc. This type of substances has prejudice a lot of athletes this is a black spot for sports; every player has a risk of consume because they can receive any sanction or the dishonor in the field. Some cases the punishment it not severs because the athlete has to pay a raise of money. I think that no one has to use this drugs because in can cause you a lot of problems in the future, but all depends if they have values to become a better athlete and a better person.

Swimming or

Cardio This type of exercise benefits the entire body, because you’re lifting your own weight. In the first two weeks you may feel discomfort after exercising, which indicates an increase in physical performance. This discomfort is due to the consumption of foods without giving them enough time to digest. Every person has their own exercise pace, and therefore shouldn’t overwork themselves. 30 minutes of daily exercise is recommended for beginners that wish to improve their health and way of life.

How to make more effective fat loss? You need to teach your body how to transform fat in energy, when not eating for a large period of time (about 4 hours daylight), your body will go into what is called "starvation mode". In the way of salvation, your body will actually store more fat and more muscle tissue break for fuel. This decreases your metabolism and increases your body fat. It's basically a defense mechanism and when you eat carbohydrates; your body stores it as glycogen in your liver. As you expend energy, your body uses the glycogen until it runs out. When you do any type of aerobic activity such as running, walking, etc.., Your body can use glycogen stores or fat as fuel. The problem is that your body will never use your stored fat until glycogens are completed.

Advantages of gym practice! 1) In the gym there is a wide variety of devices. Of course this depends on the gym, because there are some that are not well stocked. However, in general we have to supply training much broader and diverse, and we can train more muscles in our home.

2) We have people who can help us. For some exercises assistance is needed. Therefore it is important to have around us people to assist us, to help us to perform the exercises correctly. In our house or at gym.

3) Routinized. This can be both an advantage and a disadvantage. But it depends on the person. Some people prefer to be paying a fee to "bound" to go to the gym, because if you train in your home would become more lazy and could not be continuous and consistent in your training.

4) Nothing distracts us. Being in a gym we know we only do gymnastics. While at home probably can not deal 100% of our routine, since it can telephone rings or someone can touch ring, which would distract us.

Having developed these contrasts, the decision is yours to see what kind of prefer to conduct training.

What is the use of gym each machine? The fitness room of any sports center equipped with machines for different objectives, capabilities and features. According to the goal that we set as the gain or fitness level, we will want to use more than one half. Cardiovascular work: Cardiovascular media have been those that have evolved in the fitness rooms. In the 70's and 80's came the treadmills and stationary bikes, years later stepper was continued and finally appeared elliptical machines that simulate movements of other sporting activities. Here are some examples of machines that work the cardiovascular area: Tobogganing: Bicycle offers numerous advantages for both beginners and advanced, and we can adjust the intensity of work and the weight of the person does not have influence. The pedaling motion is cyclical and is a gesture that does not require a great technique. Treadmill: The major drawback of the race is the impact, especially for elderly or overweight. However, the tapes of the fitness rooms have the option of increasing the slope walking: we? Play?with the speed and inclination. Today, have a good cushioning system which makes them very comfortable in the footsteps. Means for the force: The criteria for the media work force have traditionally been: women and machines for beginners, and free weight for boys and advanced. This is to say very little. The truth is that although free weight seems more risky, is the long-term means more traction and less chance of injury involved. Simply follow a proper progression to make our exercises with free weights. Following a criterion of technical difficulty, we will discuss the advantages and disadvantages of each work environment: machines, Multipower, pulleys and free weights. Some examples of machines that will increase your muscle mass causing a force, provided there is a good routine and a consecutive work: Multipower: It is an ideal machine transition, ideally perfect for people who leave the work on the machines to switch to free weights. Also suitable for high power tasks, because we can move large loads with all safety measures. It is a device that offers many advantages for footwork allows us to perform many exercises varying the position of the feet, open squats, plies, lunges, etc.

Creatine is most commonly used to enhance physical performance and increase muscle mass in athletes and older adults. There is some scientific evidence to support the use of creatine to enhance athletic performance in healthy young people in the brief moments of high intensity activity such as sprinting. But apparently the elderly do not benefit. Creatine does not appear to improve strength or body composition in people over age 60. The widespread use of creatine among professional and amateur athletes has been recognized by well-known athletes like Mark McGuire, Sammy Sosa, and John Elway. After it was shown that carbohydrate solutions further enhance creatine levels in muscle, creatine sport drinks have become very popular. The use of creatine is allowed by the International Olympic Committee, the National Collegiate Athletics (NCAA) and professional sports. However, the NCAA does not permit students of colleges and universities creatine purchased with school funds. Students are permitted to buy creatine on their own and the NCAA has no plans to ban creatine unless medical evidence shows it is harmful. With current methods of analysis, it is possible to detect the use of creatine supplements. Besides improving athletic performance, creatine is used for congestive heart failure (CHF), depression, bipolar disorder, Parkinson's disease, diseases of the muscles and nerves, an eye disorder called gyrate atrophy and the high cholesterol. It is also used to slow the worsening of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS, Lou Gehrig's disease), rheumatoid arthritis, and McArdle's disease for many muscular dystrophies. Americans use more than 4 million kilos of creatine per year.
