SPLHS's curator insight, February 20, 2013 9:16 AM

The occasional diet or sugar-sweetened beverage probably isn’t going to hurt you, but like many processed foods these beverages can be addicting, leaving us wanting more and more every day. If you’re a regular soda dinker, maybe you should consider cutting back for the sake of your health. As I found myself after  it’s never too late.

With trying to gain muscle through fitness its vital that you don't just think about the working out portion because your is apart of seeing muscle results. Its interesting to understand that you need your diet to equal the right amount of calories being burned and your intake for those calories back into your system. When trying to eat good foods you need the right fuel that will keep your body going.

Alex Warner's insight:

Interesting that some of our pre-work out routines for so many people have came out to be some bad reasons. Some people over stretch the muscle in your body that is considered your fast twitch muscles. They are the muscles that usually deal with the responce and have fast and strong the responce muscle preforms. Keep in mind that the positive portions sometimes is more positive then negative, but it all depends on how you want to groom your body. Even though stretching has its benefits, there is a moderation on how much to stretch. Just like anything in this world, too much of anything can be bad for you.

Some careers that are done by the most physically fit people in the world consist of U.S. military spec ops. They train for every scenario and have to be at the highest level of focus when it comes to physical performance. When trying to be the best why not learn from the best.
