general fitness fall river
I know this is obvious, and I can’t be the only one who notices it, but my fitness level falls in the river. I’m down for the count. It’s only been a few weeks since my last swim, and the fitness levels I’m seeing on the health website are no better.
This is a good time to say that the fitness levels aren’t really the problem. I know they aren’t (well, they’re not really much better, but you get the point), but for the most part we’re looking at an energy deficit. As you get older, things like muscle tone and bone density start to slowly atrophy, especially in women (who, by the way, are a lot more prone than men to this).
The problem is that muscle tone and bone density are not good indicators of overall health. Muscle tone is the strongest indicator of vitality, but it can be deceiving. Bone density is the number of new bone cells being formed in the skeleton everyday and is a good indicator of general health and longevity. So while muscle tone may be good, it is not good enough to be a good indicator of long-term health.
There’s no one single indicator that tells us whether a woman is a good candidate for general fitness, but there are at least three. Muscle tone, bone density, and body mass index. Muscle tone is a good indicator of overall health, but it doesn’t tell us specifically which areas are weak. Bone density is a good indicator of overall health, but it doesn’t tell us which areas are not strong enough.
Muscle tone and bone density are just three of the many factors that are used to evaluate overall health. So if you arent seeing yourself at the top of the health chart, you have a problem.
Here’s the problem. We know that the most important determinant of overall health is muscle tone. But what about bone density? This is where the problem lies. BMD is an indicator of bone density. If you have weak bones and muscle tone, you will have weak bone density. So, when you exercise, what you are really doing is increasing your body’s bone density. The bottom line is that we are all subject to the same factors that affect health.
BMD is a number that measures the strength of the bone. Like with muscle tone, you can actually raise your BMD. But the problem with BMD is that it is affected by a wide range of factors, and is affected by both age and other health issues. It is also affected by genetics. Just as different genes influence different people to have different body compositions, different people have different BMDs.
But if we’re going to do something about it, we need to have some sort of action plan. I had a friend who had been in rehab for a year and still wanted to do the dumbest things he could ever think of. He didn’t even realize he was taking the dumbest things he could ever think of. As he got older his BMD increased, and his cholesterol went up.
While genetic predispositions to good or bad BMDs are still controversial, certain diets and exercises can do wonders for your BMD. It basically depends on what you want it to do for you. For example, if you want your BMD to be normal and strong and not increase with your weight, then you can do dumbbells. If you want it to be normal and strong and not increase with your weight, then you can do kettlebells.
There are a few supplements that are popular with people looking to increase their BMD, but only if you are looking to get stronger. One of the most popular one’s is creatine, which is a supplement that increases muscle mass. It’s typically sold in capsule form and is the cheapest way to get it. If you’re looking to get stronger, though, you should definitely consider taking a creatine monohydrate.
