No Funding, No Congrats ? But Singaporean Bodybuilding World Champ Powers On









Im putting Singapores name on the international scene, at the highest level of competition. A simple message would do, she told Yahoo. The 1.67m-tall, 66kg Liew admitted that her case isnt helped by the messy state of Singapore bodybuildings National Sports Association (NSA), or now the lack of a national body for the sport. The federation was delisted by SSC last year after a series of doping controversies.

Six Nations 2014: Jonathan Davies Proves Fitness To Face England









Using a fitness tracker doesn't require extensive commitment or sophisticated knowledge, which could be a hurdle for families where obesity or inactivity are problems, said Bethany Soule, the chief technology officer and co-founder of Beeminder , an app aimed at motivating people to change their behavior that works with multiple fitness trackers. Unlike counting calories or manually tracking activity with a paper chart, "you don't have to know anything about sports or how to exercise or use a gym, you just need to move and here's a little device that tells you how active you are," Soule said. No perfect device Despite several startups focusing on fitness trackers for kids, companies are still struggling to come up with the best way to design them, Garrison said. Soule and Daniel Reeves, the CEO and co-founder of Beeminder, for instance, have found that none of the fitness trackers are a perfect fit for their children, ages 5 and 6.

"I am sure he will give the Welsh camp a boost when he goes back in on Monday." Davies has missed the opening three games of the Six Nations campaign, against Italy, Ireland and France. Scott Williams, who is now himself ruled out with a shoulder injury for the rest of the season, played in the win over Italy and started the defeat by Ireland. Wing George North moved to centre to partner Jamie Roberts in midfield as Wales lost in Dublin, and he started their 27-6 win over France in Cardiff. But Davies was released by Wales coach Warren Gatland to play for the Scarlets in a bid to prove his fitness ahead of the trip to London on Saturday. If selected, he will be reunited with his Wales and Lions centre partner Roberts.

Its been proven time and time again that people who plan and record their fitness regimes perform better than those who dont. According to motivation researcher Dr Heidi Grant Halvorson, people who set fitness goals and make plans work harder during their workouts and are more likely to stick to their fitness regimes for longer. If you dont have a fitness plan you can create one for yourself based off your personal goals, or consult with a trainer to create one for you. Never work out an on empty stomach Forget all those tips youve heard about working out before breakfast to boost your metabolism for the day. Whilst its technically true that you burn more fat if you havent eaten for a long time, during this time your body also enters a catabolic state.

But going too far with these strenuous drills could cause a condition called rhabdomyolysis. (Via ABC ) "Rhabdo," for short, causes muscle cells to literally explode, flooding blood vessels with their contents and in extreme cases, causing kidney failure. One woman said it was more painful than childbirth.

It can be harder when it is snowing or when the temperature dips down deep into the Polar Vortex. This has been the case lately as we have been experiencing on our minus 25 to 35 degree Fahrenheit days and nights. It can be harder when your used to walking a dog and it is too cold and dangerous for them to be out in the cold for any significant period of time. It might be better to take a friend or family member other than your four legged friend on those days.
