How often should you get adjusted Each chiropractic care plan is individualized for your needs and life.
Muitos dos meus alunos perguntam, e vejo muitas pessoas perguntando isso quando falo que sou da área de exercícios. E a minha resposta é simples, a eliminação de gordura não acontece de maneira localizada, e sim ela ocorre de forma sistêmica. Então se sua idéia mirabolante for realizar um milhão de exercícios para a região abdominal, vou te contar que não é assim que funciona. Os abdominais auxiliam na hipertrofia da musculatura da região. Para reduzir a gordura abdominal o ideal é relizar um treino adequado a suas necessidades, com as variáveis de treino muito bem ajustadas, e um plano alimentar bem elaborado. Sim você irá precisar da ajuda de um nutricionista também, porque profissional de exercícios não devem modificar sua alimentação nem te prescrever suplementos, só se ele também for nutricionista, senão o profissional não é sério.
VEM TREINAR COMIGO!

A recent article published by the Telegraph on physical activity in primary and secondary schools published the results of a large survey conducted by the Youth Sport Trust.
We know that only 9% of 13-15 year old girls are getting the recommended 60 mins of physical activity a day.
The first image shows the key motivators for being physically active for primary and secondary school girls. The survey shows that luckily, having fun remains a key motivator for young girls.
However, we also know that one of the key barriers facing young girls from being more physically active is body image and lack of self confidence. We can see that the % of girls happy with their body image is very low, decreasing further as girls develop throughout their teenage years.
At Fit4Life we want to help use physical activity to increase our participants confidence and self belief, which will hopefully then transcend other areas of their life too.
You can also see that the self-reported most popular activities amongst the primary and secondary survey participants aren’t, for the most part, sports that most schools in the UK offer for P.E.
To help boost physical activity, we want to help young people co-create physical activity programmes, so that they are doing what they actually want to do. We should acknowledge and embrace the new activities that young people want to be doing if we are going to help more young people get active.
Among so many positive things a life of movement can bring , one is being able to feel as if I was still a child jumping from here to there in the middle of the city. Movement is my tool, it's my element, is that thing where I feel more alive than ever, and I know that it's something that ANYONE would benefit from because it is scientifically proven that moving that skeleton helps to improve our mood, besides helping our physical condition in general, yes: "Your mind and body are intimately connected. And while your brain is the master control system for your body’s movement, the way you move can also affect the way you think and feel." -- Harvard Health Blog--
Entre tantas cosas positivas que trae llevar una vida en movimiento, está poder sentirme como si todavía fuera un niño que salta de aquí para allá en medio de la ciudad. El movimiento es mi herramienta, es mi elemento en donde me siento más vivo que nunca, y sé que es algo de lo que cualquier persona se beneficiaría porque está comprobado científicamente que mover el esqueleto ayuda a mejorar nuestro estado de ánimo, además de ayudar a nuestro estado físico en general... "Tu mente y tu cuerpo están íntimamente conectados. Y mientras que tu cerebro es el sistema de control maestro para el movimiento de tu cuerpo, la forma en que te mueves también puede afectar la forma en que piensas y sientes." --Blog de Salud de Harvard--

Obiecane słowo o tym, dlaczego warto ćwiczyć, nawet w sesji. Część notki znajdziecie w komentarzu pod postem.
Aktywność fizyczna w końcu znalazła się w kręgu zainteresowań ludzi nauki. Wyniki badań nasuwają nam tylko jeden wniosek - ćwiczyć!
Pewnie dobrze już wiecie, że powstały wytyczne, które ustaliły minimalny tygodniowy czas ćwiczeń potrzebny dla zdrowia na 150 min. Ciekawostka:300 min/tydz. To górna granica, powyżej której aktywność fizyczna nie niesie już ze sobą korzyści zdrowotnych i ćwiczymy dla sylwetki, dobrego samopoczucia, rozładowania emocji etc.
Ale dlaczego nie odpuszczać sobie sesji To zaledwie miesiąc.
Nie warto! Godzinka ćwiczeń dziennie nam nie zaszkodzi, a wręcz pomoże. Przebadano wpływ aktywności fizycznej na zapamiętywanie, a także ogólnie na struktury mózgowe. Nasza zdolność zapamiętywania po ćwiczeniach fizycznych znacznie wzrasta. Ćwicząc regularnie m.in. zwiększamy objętość hipokampa, pobudzamy neurogenezę, zwiększamy odporność neuronów na stres, co zapobiega ich niszczeniu.

HIGHLIGHT OF THE WEEK:
Running to and from work each day I navigate 9km of traffic lights that favour drivers in all other directions before pedestrians are permitted to cross.
At one set of lights on Moggill Rd you have to press the beg button to cross past stopped traffic and then wait arbitrarily until the light goes green. That was until this week. For some reason, the light started automatically turning green as I approached the intersection (as you generally expect lights to behave when you are in a car). I was looking around for sensors this morning, but couldn't figure out how it worked. Then, on my run home this evening I saw this.
Whoever came up with this is a community hero. Well played. 🚦🚶♀️🏃♂️🚴♀️🌳

Our guidance says planners should develop policies and initiatives to ensure that safe, convenient, inclusive access for pedestrians, cyclists, and people who use public transport is maximised and is prioritised over motorised transports (cars, motorbikes and mopeds, for example). Joe Irvin, CEO of Living Streets, the UK charity for everyday walking, supports these recommendations: “For decades our towns and cities have been built to prioritise motor vehicles; resulting in unhealthy air, congested roads and a decline in people walking everyday journeys.
“The better planning that NICE is suggesting is absolutely necessary. It’s time that towns and cities were built for everyone – first and foremost for those on foot.”

Fantastic Lifestyle Medicine Conference last weekend in Auckland. Many topics were covered with much more evidence presented all round on lifestyle factors improving and reversing chronic disease. “Lifestyle as medicine has the potential to prevent up to 80% of chronic disease; no other medicine can match that. In addition, it is potentially inexpensive and even cost-saving; free of all but good side effects; safe and appropriate for children and octogenarians alike. It is, quite simply, the best medicine we’ve got.” David Katz, MD, MPH, FACPM, FACPPresident, American College of Lifestyle Medicine
Chronic low grade INFLAMMATION is a key driver in chronic disease- much of this can be addressed with lifestyle factors. Prof Garry Egger has a great mnemonic for chronic disease determinants- “NASTIE MALODOURS” - nutrition, activity, stress, technology, inadequate sleep, environment, meaningless, alienation, loss of culture, occupation, drugs and alcohol, over exposure , under exposure, relationships and social inequality.
We cannot drug or supplement our way out of a poor lifestyle! Nutrition, physical activity, sleep, stress management (and dare I say, our breath! ) are foundations for a healthy lifestyle and preventing/reversing chronic disease.
And last but not least, honoured to now be a Fellow of the Australasian Society for Lifestyle Medicine and a Board Certified Lifestyle Medicine Physician! 🤗😇😎👩🎓🥂🙏 For health professionals interested in Lifestyle Medicine, go to www.lifestylemedicine.org.au

Mindset is key and can act as a set back or help develop good habits. One small change made and maintained by altering lifestyle choices one decision at a time
can eventually add up to huge results.
Small changes, made deliberately assist in achieving exercise and nutrition goals. .
A big part of success and positive, visible and real change requires establishing individual and enjoyable physical activities and doing them often. Be it running, swimming or the gym, finding what appeals and avoiding what doesn’t will provide purpose to your physical activity program, guarantee change and add a sense of accomplishment.
If weight loss is the goal; nutrition has to be addressed on its own. Physical Activity is 20% of the weight loss puzzle. That said, it provides so many added vital physical benefits it cannot be extracted from the equation.
If Physical Activity has been recommended for your Mental Health a slow and steady start maybe best. Small steps, make it routine, see what works, stick to a schedule and gradually add to the repertoire.
If time is the enemy, keep workouts simple and short. Effective workouts can happen in 20-30 minutes including a 3 minute warm-up. Allocate designated time limits, set alarms, stick to a program and get on with the day. Progress the movements with load and difficulty, keeping correct technique key.
If cardio is king and endurance preferred, mix up the intensities, hit some intervals and add in some resistance strength training 2 or 3 times a week. Long walks with a friend or the dog won’t make the all physical changes required for optimal health.
Chronic pain and illness can be positively impacted from regular Physical Activity. By moving the whole body, working joints through full range of motion, contracting muscles and activating the cardio-respiratory system stimulates blood flow, hormonal responses, cellular function and generates neurons, all shown to improve and reduce chronic pain and illness.

Sit Less - Move More 🤸♀️ Let's Talk Sedentary Behaviour 👩⚕️
🙋♀️ This week's Friday Focus article is all about why we need to Move More + Sit Less - link in my bio to read! Why is this an important topic You may have seen media taglines along the lines of 'Is sitting the new smoking' and wondered what the heck THAT was all about 🤦♀️
🙋♀️ Sedentary behaviour defined as any waking behaviour characterized by an energy expenditure of 1.5 METs or less while in a sitting, reclining or lying posture. METs stands for metabolic equivalents, a measure of activity - for example, 1 MET is the energy it takes to sit quietly, while a brisk walk uses anywhere from 3 to 6 METs. .
🙋♀️ Sedentary behaviour is NOT the same as physical activity. For example, I could be doing 150 minutes a week of moderate intensity aerobic activity by brisk walking each week (i.e. meeting part of our national exercise guidelines). BUT I might also have a high volume of sedentary behaviour (high = 8 or more hours, low = 4 or less). Does that matter for my health
🙋♀️ The British Heart Foundation reviewed the evidence to date on this topic in 2012 (link on my blog) + said we know enough to say sedentary behaviour is associated with higher risk of cardiovascular disease, type 2 diabetes + possible adverse effects on our mental health. BUT compared to the extensive research we have on the damaging health effects of smoking, it's far less data - so its inaccurate + a big leap to showcase 'sitting is the new smoking' headline.
🙋♀️ What do we do Well, we should - be physically active every day, throughout our day. Break up long periods of sitting time - trying a 5-10 minute break every hour you sit! And focus on movement that YOU enjoy, because we know that's what you are mors likely to stick to for life. Consistency is a LOT more important than intensity. .
🙋♀️ Lots more info on the above in this week's article on the blog, plus a look at the evidence for standing desks - if you have a read let me know! Happy Friday ❤ #TheIrishBalance #NewBlogPost #PhysicalActivity #GetActive #HealthyLifestyle
HIIT training... Spinning... Sexy sounding body blast, attack, sculpt classes... This is what many people think they have to do in order to improve their health...
But do we always have to do this mad intense exercise in order to stay healthy... What about a simple old walk
Walking is very much underestimated, and it can have fantastic benefits for heart health
A recent study by Arija et al (2017) looked at two groups of older men and women (mean age 65 years old, 364 participants in total) over a period of 9 months
One group was the exercise intervention group, who were led on multiple organised walks that totalled 120 mins a week
The other group was a control group, meaning they were told to just go about their normal lifestyles
After the 9 months, in the intervention group average systolic blood pressure had dropped by 7 mmHg, total cholesterol levels had dropped by an average of 10 mg/dL, and LDL cholesterol (the "bad" cholesterol) had dropped by an average of 9.05 mg/dL
After this intervention, the participants in the two groups were followed up two years later
Those who had been in the intervention group were found to have continued being physical active much more than the control group (72.8% vs 27.2%), and the incidence of cardiovascular events was significantly lower when compared to those who had been in the control group (2.5% vs 10.5%)
This study is just one of many showing that super simple, lower intensity activity such as brisk walking can significantly reduce your risk of cardiovascular disease
So whilst high intensity workouts of course are going to help improve your health and fitness, you don't always have to go to these high intensities, and kill yourself in the gym until you feel like your heart is going to tear out your chest and you're dripping in sweat
Take the intensity down a bit, get out in the fresh air and pound that pavement as often as you can, and reap the benefits

Unbelievable! 56% of Australian adults are either inactive or have low levels of physical activity, that is more than 9.5 million adults! - Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS), 2013.
There are so many ways to squeeze in physical activity, such as getting out of the office for a half an hour walk during a lunch break or getting off public transport a stop or two further from work to make for a longer walk into your workplace. The important thing is to be active wherever you can!

NEAT & WEIGHT LOSS 👇🏻👇🏻 -
Exercising for one hour a day x 3 days a week = 3 hours out of 112 hours (assuming you sleep for 8 hours a night).
What you do in the other 109 hours is equally, if not more, important. -
This is referrred to as NEAT or non exercise activity thermogenesis and is the energy expended for everything outside of exercise, eating and sleeping.
What we often see happen is behavioural compensation. This means as we get deeper into a calorie deficit we get lazier for want of a better word and so more less outside of those gym hours and therefore reduce our NEAT.
If you are trying to lose weight don’t replace NEAT with exercise as you may hit a plateau. In the words of @diren.kartal #neatup247. You may need to review and increase one of them or both if your weight loss has stalled and you don’t want to / can’t reduce your calories any further.

School holidays are fast approaching! School holidays can be a great opportunity for athletes to take a break from both the physical and mental load of training throughout the term.
However, we also believe it’s *key* to remain active, especially for youth athletes. That’s why we designed our holiday programs in such a way, as to not let athletes lose their hard earned fitness. They’re also designed to help youth athletes continue with their progress, while at the same time keeping activity fun, exciting and enjoyable. The aim is to have each athlete leaving the holiday program ready to come into Term 3 feeling refreshed, relaxed and ready to train.
We will be offering training throughout the break through thrice weekly Holiday Camps and continued Semi Private Training. All relevant info can be seen by swiping left. Please feel free to DM or email us for all enquiries and enrolments. #yadacademy #standrewssport

But wait, what is physical literacy and why is it important to develop "Physical literacy is the skills, knowledge and behaviours that give us the confidence and motivation to move throughout our lives." - Sport Australia
Research has shown that without physical literacy, children are more likely to not participate in sport and exercise. This will cause inactivity, unhealthy behaviours and reduced confidence throughout their childhood, and well into adulthood. Developing a broad range of physical capabilities, along with the psychological, social and cognitive aspects of movement at a young age is extremely important for setting our kids up for an active and healthy life, free to participate and excel in sport. #minimoversphysicalliteracy #standrewssport

Esse gráfico relaciona força muscular e hipertrofia. Enoka(1998) relata que podem ocorrer aumentos na força, sem aumento da área muscular. Algumas adaptações, invisíveis mas fundamentais, têm essa responsabilidade, de aumentar somente a força, são as neurais.
Um conjunto de mudanças nos padrões de interação entre o comando central do sistema nervoso e a contração muscular acontece, otimizando o movimento.
Como o gráfico mostra, as adaptações neurais respondem nas primeiras 6-8 semanas pelo aumento da força, estabilizando no período que segue. Entre 8-12 semanas a hipertrofia passa a ter essa responsabilidade de forma aumentada, no aumento da força, tornando muito mais difícil o aumento de cargas nesse período, do que no inicial.
Estratégias envolvem a partir desse período uma manipulação nas variáveis de treino, como exercícios, séries e repetições... #treinodeforça #treinocontraresistencia #strengthtraining
