Best Work Out for Great Arms

The best cardio for your arms
1. SWIMMING
The water doesn’t just cool you off: It provides full-body resistance you don’t encounter on land. Your arms are key for propelling you forward, so you’ll sculpt strong, sleek swimmer’s arms while burning as many as 680 calories an hour.Get a swim coach to look at your stroke and be sure to do rototator cuff exercises.
2. CARDIO MACHINES WITH MOVABLE HANDLES
Focus on pushing and pulling with every stride. Start by doing 1 minute with arms/1 minute without, and gradually increase. If your machine doesn’t have handles, bend your elbows and pump your arms as though you’re power walking.
3. ROCK CLIMBING
Grasping overhead handholds gives your upper body a fresh workout, and you can blast up to 750 calories an hour as you figure out the best route to the top. Find indoor climbing facilities nationwide.
4. KICKBOXING CLASSES
Throwing punches and jabs is a great way to get your heart pumping and melt up to 680 calories an hour. Get two free 20-minute routines to try at exercisetv.tv (just click on “kickboxing”).
5. CANOEING OR KAYAKING
Paddling down a river is the perfect family adventure–and it burns up to about 500 calories an hour.
6. WALKING WITH POLES
Studies show it can boost your calorie burn by more than 20% without making your walk feel any harder.
7. YOGA works the entire body but foremost the arms get in shape. Find a good beginning studio and start slowly.

Seven Tips for Beautiful Skin

Did you know an overly acid condition in your body makes your skin dull?

To make the body more alkaline and get more younger looking skin you may try beginning each day with an 8 oz glass of filtered water, a tablespoon of fresh lemon or lime juice and 1/4 tsp of Himalayan salt or raw sea salt.

If your skin is stubborn and dull do you smoke? We all know this is very damaging to the skin. Use a good antioxidant treatment topically to slow the damage from second hand smoke. Frownies Immune Shield is loaded with nourishing protective antioxidants. Try it you’ll love it.

If you truly want to alkalize your body you must eliminate ALL sugars from your diet. Watch your skin start to glow! The two biggest Acid creators and skin eroders as well as zero nutrient foods, are sodas and diet sodas.

If you are still acidic and your complexion is not improving try limiting significantly your meat, processed, packaged refined foods, milk, caffeine/coffee, alcohol, breads and flours. Your body will love you and you’ll start to see a brighter younger looking skin.

When juicing pair lemon juice with dark leafy greens such as kale, spinach and collards- it will help with the iron absorption, and your complexion.

Good skin food is important too. Replace almond butter for acid forming peanut butter. Almonds are one of the most alkalizing foods because they are rich in calcium and magnesium. Incorporate almonds and the many forms of almond products, such as almond milk and almond cheese into your diet. Have a handful of almonds as a healthy snack.

Best skin health and beauty tip of all is drink LOTS of WATER! Water dilutes acid from acid forming foods and drinks. In addition to water, drink more teas such as, green tea, roibios, ginger and herbal teas.

If you can get alkaline water all the better. Alkaline water explained here.

If you smoke you should quit! But you already have been told that so in the case that you’re not quitting be sure to use Immune Shield anti-oxidant rich serum to protect and provide antioxidants to the surface of the skin.

5 Tips to a Healthier Paced Life

Life is running at a pace few of us are able to sustain. It’s as if our own bodies are now vibrating at speeds similar to jet planes, bullet trains and even our own 80mph automobiles. Life is speeding by like the passing trees and buildings on our daily commutes to and from the places where we go and never get finished rushing from project to project. Stress hormones are building while weight gain and obesity are on the rise. Stress shows on our faces. We consider injections and cosmetic surgery but we never look relaxed and peaceful.

Are you feeling overwhelmed? Do you take time to notice the details or do you only see a blur? Do you move so quickly that you rarely take time to consciously breathe and connect with others? These are a few contemplative questions that can help you investigate the pace you are keeping and begin to make changes to slow down today.

1. Take a walk, bicycle or take the bus instead of driving. One way to connect with the world around you is to slow down. This will give you more time to appreciate all that surrounds you.

2. Go out in nature. Getting out in nature is a sure-fire way to remind you to slow down. Also, its a wonderful way to remind you of the bigger picture and your connection with all of life. By the way turn off your cell phone while you’re out in nature see how long you can go without it.

3. Simply Sit. All too often we think that our lives are so busy that we cannot take the time to slow down, let alone sit down. By sitting down, you begin to breathe deeply, enjoy the moment and connect to that which surrounds you.

4. Add your Self to the to-do list. By adding yourself to your to-do list, you can more easily carve out time to spend with your Self, family, and friends. Remember, you set the priority of how you spend your time. Choose to dedicate time for Self-reflection, Self-communion and Self-expression. You are worth it! May be this is your yoga class, walk or bike ride.

5. Take moments throughout the day for conscious breathing. Conscious breathing is the easiest and quickest way to slow down. A simple suggestion is to find a way for you to remember – like posting sticky notes, wearing a certain piece of jewelry or etc. You are worth it take a breath and be still.
