5 Great Leg Exercises for Women

Many men want to have huge arms, shaped pecs and muscular legs. The majority of women tend to be the exact opposite. For example, instead of aiming for muscular legs, they aim to have more toned and slender legs. As a result women are always more cautious of any type of weight or strength training. The reason for this is that they often believe it will lead to their legs becoming more muscular rather than toned. This however isn’t the case at all, in fact weight, strength and resistance training is highly effective at toning the legs. They are all much better methods than simply trying to diet and will actually help you to achieve the results that you want.

My Daily Infrared Sauna Session: How an Early Morning Session Will Make your Day

As autumn approaches and that cold chill is returning to the air, my infrared sauna sessions are becoming more frequent again. Not quite daily yet, but I find myself thinking about it more and I am trying to find ways of fitting it back into my daily  routine. As I start using my home sauna more often, I can feel that I am getting addicted to it once more. It is very similar to the endorphin addiction that I get from regular running, cycling or swimming.

Luckily I have a cabin in the corner of our spare bedroom which allows me to get a quick fix whenever I find the time. (more…)

Infrared Sauna and Skin

We all like to look after our skin and make sure we are looking our best, well I certainly do. The key to having great looking skin is getting rid of all the impurities, making sure the texture is soft and having an overall glow. We already know that having a sauna using hot water is great for sweating out impurities and removing toxins from the body but a more effective method is using an infrared sauna. The reason why it is more effective than a traditional steam sauna is because the infrared light penetrates deeper into the skin. And, because an infrared sauna is enjoyed at lower temperatures (typically 45 – 65 degrees Celsius) the user can stay in much longer, say 30 minutes. Therefore, the combined effect of deeper heat and a longer usage time means that the body works harder to cool you down, so you sweat more – generally 2/3 times more than in a traditional sauna.
