An Average Man Should, And Needs To Exercise

An average man should, and needs, to exercise at least three times a week for a minimum of 30 minutes.  As I have said before, we have many options when it comes to exercise.  In my opinion, if you have the time and especially if you’re retired, you should do some exercise everyday. Doing a bit of exercise everyday is better than doing none at all since it all helps to keep our muscles flexible and strong, and is great for mental fatigue, and your mindset in general. I think the downfall for a lot of men and people in […] Read more »

If you know how to swim chances are you haven’t been in the Swim for a while.  Maybe like me in the past you don’t swim from one Holiday to the next, and every time you do you say things like “that was really great, I’ll have to start swimming again when I get home”, and your family and friends that you’re with usually echo the same sentiments, but it never happens. When you’re on holiday swimming pools are never usually far away, but once you’re back home, unless you’re lucky to live within walking distance of your local Leisure […] Read more »

  When it comes to exercise – how much? A lot of guys don’t really know. They take up a new sport, or start to exercise at home, and after a few weeks they expect to see some results.  When they don’t, they think they’re not doing enough.  So they do more of the same exercises, or they go to the Gym more, they swim more, run more, cycle more.  And it’s still the same, they may feel fitter, but if they are trying to lose weight they find that they haven’t lost any.  Why is this they say?

The last of the Mince Pies have gone. It’s time to think Fitness, check out the weight gain – if any, and put our Fitness Plan in place for the New Year.  I personally only gained 2lbs over Christmas. (but then I did do a lot of walking). My brother has a very lively 18 month old “working Cocker Spaniel”, and she gave me a great reason to go for long walks with other members of my Family, who were staying over Christmas and New Year.  So on average over the Holiday, including Christmas Day, I was walking between 4 […] Read more »
