Muscles are the engines of the body.
Unfortunately, muscles lose size and strength with age, resulting in physical weakness and variety of degenerated problem.
You can avoid muscle loss by doing regular strength training.
You can replace muscle tissue you’ve already lost regardless of your age.
You can replace a rather large amount of lost muscle in a relatively short time through a simple strength training exercise program.
Want a workout that's just as effective but can be done in less time? Combine multiple exercises into one. For example, do a lunge and shoulder press.
Stand with your feet hip width apart holding a dumbbell in each hand with elbows bent in a 45 degree angle, above your shoulders and palms facing forward.
Take a large step forward with one foot; bend your knees to lower into a lunge until your front thigh is parallel to the floor.
Reverse to return to the start position and press the dumbbells up above your shoulders.
Repeat to 10 reps and switch leg for another 10 reps.
Oh...how I love pancakes! Another one of my favorite pancake recipes. Try it!
6 egg whites, beaten until fluffy
½ cup low-fat cottage cheese
1 scoop whey protein
½ cup oatmeal, uncooked
¼ wheat germ
1 tsp baking powder
1 Tbsp olive oil
½ tsp cinnamon
1. Place all ingredients except beaten egg whites in a food processor and pulse or blend until mixture is uniform.
2. Pour blended ingredients into a bowl and add the egg whites. Fold until just blended.
3. Prepare a griddle with cooking spray. Ladle pancake mixture onto griddle and cook until both sides are browned.
For healthier pancakes, skip the syrup and place a scoop of unsweetened applesauce on each pancake. Or you can try this: Place ½ cup of blueberries or raspberries in a small saucepan along with 1 tbsp of water. Mash the berries and bring the mixture to a boil.When the fruit is uniformly hot and beginning to get syrupy, remove from heat and pour into a small jug. Drizzle over pancakes.
