*******************

I’ve strolled through Riverside Park on several previous occasions (click here to see a collection of approximately seven other Flickr albums of my Riverside Park photos) — but even though the sign at the 96th Street entrance is always the same, and the pathway is always the same, the people and the individual vignettes are always different.

Sometimes it’s simply a function of the weather: people dress differently, act differently, and are engaged in different activities in early spring than they do in summer or late fall. But much of it simply has to do with the incredible variety of people who take advantage of the opportunity to relax, read a book, jog, or picnic with their families.

So … this just happens to be what it looked like in Riverside Park on the last day of May, in 2009.

How To Become More Healthy And Fit

For some people, personal fitness comes quite naturally and for others it is something that has to be carefully planned and monitored for progress. The following article can help anyone reach their fitness goal.

Are you like many others and have very little free time in your life? Divide a single workout up into two different sessions. You don’t have to workout for a longer period of time; just split one workout in half. Therefore, instead of working out for a one hour burst, split it into two half-hour sessions, one morning and one night. If you would rather not visit your fitness center twice in a single day, you could do one workout at the gym and then do another workout outdoors.

When you are doing weight training, start small. This is because small muscles tend to tire quicker, so you should target these muscles first before heading onto the bigger muscles in the body. This is because if you are working out big ones the smaller ones may strain.

Set your goals first and this will help determine the rate at which you strength train and how often you must hit the gym. If your aim is to bulk up, you should do more intense sessions on a less frequent basis. But if you’re trying to chisel leaner, more sculpted muscles, then up the number of strength training workouts you get in.

Be sure you’ve got the correct shoes for your exercises. If you were shoes that are properly designed for a specific activity, you risk leg and foot injury. Even without more serious complications, wearing the wrong footwear makes your exercises uncomfortable and makes it harder for you to stick with them.

To increase forearm strength, try this simple strategy from racquetball and tennis players. Start by placing a large sheet of newspaper on a table or some other flat surface. Crumple the whole newspaper for 30 seconds, using your stronger hand. After repeating this exercise twice, switch hands and perform the same action once, then twice more with your dominant hand.

Don’t exercise when you’re ill. If you are ill, your body has to use its energy to heal itself. It’s unlikely that you will add muscle to your frame or have the stamina for a workout while you’re under the weather. So, halt your workouts until you have recovered. Also, you will want to eat great and get extra sleep.

When you want to meet goals in fitness, it’s a good idea to pay a trainer before starting to train. By doing this, you give yourself a powerful motivational tool: You’ll want to keep your commitments to avoid wasting the money you’ve already spent on the trainer’s services. This is largely because the sessions are already paid for and not a recurring expense or bill hanging over your head. You are going to want to get what you paid for.

You are certain to get something from the information in this article, whether you are a beginner or someone very familiar with fitness. Educate yourself on all the tips and try and incorporate them into your every day fitness routine. Make time to exercise, and exp lifelong benefits.
