Weight loss: How to lose belly fat and tone arms at the same time in THREE moves

Uncategorized
Chris Wharton, co-owner and director of the Better Body Group, revealed losing belly fat and toning arms are a popular demand by his clients. Speaking to Express.co.uk he said: “Not a day goes by where I’m not asked the question ‘how can I tone my abs and get rid of these?’, whilst the client pinches and jiggles their so-called ‘bingo wings’.“Sadly, it’s impossible to spot reduce body fat like this. If it were that simple, we would all have cover model bodies in perfect proportions.”So how can we sculpt more desirable guns and a trimmer waist?Chris said: “Firstly, it’s important to understand that the whole concept of ‘toning’ is a bit of a misnomer. For argument’s sake let’s say that those looking to ‘tone’ their arms are aiming to firm up the areas that are covered in a layer of

Sense of smell could be clue to dementia

Older people with a poor sense of smell have a greater chance of developing Alzheimer's and other forms of dementia, US research has shown.The discovery raises the prospect of using "sniffing sticks" to flag individuals needing closer monitoring in the next five years.Though humans lack the acute sense of some animals such as dogs, they can distinguish up to a trillion different odours.The brain's ability to sort and recognise smells may provide a way of spotting early damage caused by neurodegenerative disease, the research suggests.But experts warned that impaired smell detection was not always a symptom of early dementia.Almost 3000 adults aged 57 to 85 took part in the long-term US study, which involved waving "sniffing sticks" with various smell flavours in front of their noses.Tho...

After being overweight for her entire life, Jessica Beniquez had some bad habits to break to lose 175 lbs.“I was a very picky eater. I didn’t stick a vegetable in my mouth. I ate fast food every day, and would pretty much only eat chicken nuggets, pasta and fries,” the 21-year-old tells PEOPLE. And her lifestyle had turned sedentary, despite having played sports in high school. “I laid in bed watching series after series on Netflix. All I did was eat, go to work and watch my shows.”At over 320 lbs., her weight took a toll on her body. “I didn’t feel comfortable,” says the Spring Hill, Florida resident. “Getting out of bed was hard. I felt miserable. I knew I needed to lose weight because I had high blood pressure, but it took me over a year to realize how dangerous that is — a

This Is the Only Piece of Equipment You Need to Strengthen Your Core

The toe-touch and mountain climber are both excellent core moves. The lack of stability created by the Bosu requires even more control and precision than doing them off of the sturdy surface of the floor or ground. (For more workouts that will torch your core, check out Anarchy Abs from Men's Health.)The lateral hop is a great cardiovascular exercise that boosts your heart rate. The cushioning and additional height of the balance trainer softens the impact, while providing an unstable surface that can help strengthen the ankles.Elevating the hind leg on a split-squat adds more resistance to the front leg, increasing the challenge of the exercise without adding external loads. And—surprise!—putting the hind leg on the Bosu is going to require you to stabilize your core and legs that much

In February 2015, a seemingly dormant Philips erupted into action. The Dutch conglomerate snapped up American medical device maker Volcano for $1.2 billion. Philips chief executive Frans van Houten then hinted where it was headed. “In an ageing world with more chronic disease, health and healthcare are enormous opportunities that we want to focus on,” he reportedly said after the acquisition of Volcano, which makes equipment that allows doctors treating heart diseases to see inside patients’ veins and measure blood flow. Back in India, Philips silently rolled out Project Vijay in October of the same year, a pilot project for the delivery of home healthcare. A year later, it formed Philips Home Care Services (PHCS), a wholly owned arm of Philips India. Project Vijay, recalls Asik Das,
