Here's Why You Need To Add This To Your Exercise Program NOW!

Here's Why You Need To Add This To Your Exercise Program NOW! | The 5 Chambers Of Fitness | Scoop.it

Aside from broader shoulders, there are several key benefits to adding Overhead Presses to your exercise program.

 

In an ariticle by Men's Health, Tyler English, CPT., PES, mentions

 

"It hits just about every muscle in your torso,"

 

The abdominals will kickin to stablize your upper body while the chest, upper back, traps, and triceps will work together in synergy to perform the movement.

 

It's a perfect exercise for building strength and packing on size, which is why English also concluded:

 

 "Such comprehensive muscle recruitment also makes it an excellent test of core strength, shoulder stability, and upper-body power,"

 

Here's the link to a useful instructional video if you're wisely adding this exercise to your fitness arsenal.

Deuces!!!

Refuel Muscles With Chocolate Milk

Refuel Muscles With Chocolate Milk | The 5 Chambers Of Fitness | Scoop.it

Fat-free chocolate milk beat out carbohydrate sports drinks at helping to rebuild and refuel muscles after exercise, researchers report.


The combination of carbohydrates and protein in low-fat chocolate milk appears to be "just right" for refueling weary muscles, says William Lunn, PhD, an exercise scientist at the University of Connecticut.

"It's not just a dessert item, but it's very healthy, especially for endurance athletes," Lunn tells WebMD.



Post-exercise muscle biopsies showed increased skeletal muscle protein synthesis -- a sign that muscles were better able to rebuild -- after the milk drink, compared with the carb-only beverage.


Additionally, drinking fat-free chocolate milk led to a higher concentration of glycogen, or muscle fuel, in muscles 30 and 60 minutes after exercise, compared with the sports drink. Replenishing glycogen after exercise helps future performance, Lunn says.

Mr. Olympia Larry Scott: 1938-2014

Mr. Olympia Larry Scott: 1938-2014 | The 5 Chambers Of Fitness | Scoop.it

There was a day when bodybuilders were not a regular feature on the big screen and magazine covers and earning up to a quarter million dollars in prize money for a single event. A day when bodybuilders trained alongside other iron game champions, often performing feats of strength that remain impressive to this day, and lifting for the sheer joy of packing on muscle. The champions of those days are considered pioneers, legends if you will. One such legend passed on March 8 but will always be remembered: Larry Scott.

Use This Workout To Sculpt Aesthetic Shoulders That Have Great Function

Use This Workout To Sculpt Aesthetic Shoulders That Have Great Function | The 5 Chambers Of Fitness | Scoop.it

The human shoulder is made up of three bones: the clavicle (collarbone), the scapula (shoulder blade), and the humerus (upper arm bone) as well as associated muscles, ligaments and tendons. The articulations between the bones of the shoulder make up the shoulder joints. "Shoulder joint" typically refers to the glenohumeral joint, which is the major joint of the "shoulder," but can more broadly include the acromioclavicular joint. In human anatomy, the shoulder joint comprises the part of the body where the humerus attaches to the scapula, the head sitting in the glenoid fossa[disambiguation needed.The shoulder is the group of structures in the region of the joint.


The shoulder has greatest range of motion of any joint in the body. Because of this mobility, it is at risk for injury or degenerative problems. The bones of the shoulder are the humerus (upper arm bone), clavicle (collar bone), and scapula (shoulder blade). The head of the humerus bone (the ball) is lined with cartilage that glides over the shoulder socket (also known as the “glenoid cavity”). The clavicle attaches the shoulder to the rib cage and holds the shoulder out from the body. The scapula is a large triangular bone located on the back side of the upper body, and it is connected to the clavicle through the acromioclavicular (AC) joint.


The front delts play a major assisting role in chest training, and even receive some degree of stimulation from biceps and triceps exercises like barbell curls and dips. Because of all the ancillary work they receive, front delts are often an overdeveloped item on many physiques. Over time, this can even lead to posture problems, as the person tends to adopt a 'slumped forward' stance. The medial, or side head, abducts the arm, meaning that it brings the arms out and away from the midline of the body. The side heads are only activated to a significant level when trained using specific isolation movements. Finally, the posterior, or rear head, extends the arm and produces external rotation. The rear delts are very much involved in back training movements such as chins and rows.

4 Dynamic Stretches Offer First Aid for Morning Pain and Stiffness

4 Dynamic Stretches Offer First Aid for Morning Pain and Stiffness | The 5 Chambers Of Fitness | Scoop.it

For years static stretching has been the mainstay of the early morning routine. As it turns out, research doesn’t support a benefit from static stretching. Dynamic stretching, on the other hand, has been shown to have many benefits including warming up your muscles, increasing blood flow, and jump-starting your metabolism.

The idea is to obtain the most benefit in the least time using compound exercises that work multiple joints or muscle groups at the same time. Check out these four dynamic stretches and see for yourself. It’s like having a can of lubricating oil at your bedsid
