Most Common Fitness Mistakes

Most Common Fitness Mistakes - The primary goal of most fitness programs is weight loss. Committing oneself to a mission and that mission’s top priority is to reduce and if possible, totally eliminate fat in the body. Having a goal is important when you want to achieve something, it keeps your mind focused in one thing and that is to achieve that goal you had set for yourself. If you want to shed a couple pounds or you want to lose a specific number of weight you’ve got to have these two characteristics, you’ve got to have a lot of determination and consistency in your body. Fitness mistakes usually happen when you actually don’t have any idea of what you are supposed to be doing.

The first important thing to do when you’re planning to start a fitness program is to have a workout regime set-up in advance. This is the one of the most common fitness mistakes in joining a fitness program. You can’t have yourself going everyday to the gym not knowing exactly what to do, you’ll end up with no accomplishment for the day and the next day to come if you don’t have preset workout regime.

Also one of the common fitness mistakes is the setting up of unrealistic expectations. One of the important mind-set in working out is to keep realistic expectations. You cannot expect to shed 200 to 300 pounds in the span of one to two months if you’re a beginner in the fitness world. Expecting something like this, which is absolutely absurd and a no doubt total failure, will make you lose your interest in working out at all. Setting goals that are much more realistic will help you stay motivated which will also make you concentrate more on yourself all throughout the entire process.

It doesn’t matter if you are doing big exercises with longer durations or just small ones for only a few hours. You simply can’t expect to have major results with a three to four times of exercise session all in one week, a little preposterous don’t you think? Obsessing yourself with exercise and overtraining is not causing any good to your fitness goals instead it will result to unhealthy being which might cause fatigue, difficulty in sleeping and prolonged workout recovery resulting body and mind burnout.

Totally eliminating body fat is mission impossible, at least if one expects to remain alive and functioning. The American Council on Exercise recognizes the % of essential fat to be 5-8% for men and 10-13% for women. Essential fat is the level below which physical and physiological health is negatively affected. 3% is generally considered a physiological minimum for human males.

Urban Meyer Stepping Down

Urban Meyer Stepping Down - Well, it appears as if it’s deja vu all over again.

Less than 12 months after retiring and then un-retiring, Urban Meyer is apparently stepping down as Florida’s head coach. There’s no word on if he will be stepping back up tomorrow.

Urban Meyer Stepping Down

According to Todd Wright of Sporting News radio, and AOL Fanhouse‘s Brett McMurphy Meyer will announce at a 5 p.m. ET press conference Wednesday that he is resigning/retiring as the Gators’ head coach. There are no further details available at this time, other than GatorUpdates reporting over the weekend that Meyer checked into a hospital the week of the UGA game and has been undergoing tests since.

Obviously, we’ll have more on this story throughout the day and well into the night…

Matt Cassel Undergoes Appendectomy

Matt Cassel Undergoes Appendectomy - The mystery of Matt Cassel missing practice Wednesday coupled with the Kansas City Chiefs promoting quarterback Tyler Palko has been solved.

The team has announced that Cassel underwent an appendectomy on Wednesday morning. The Chiefs say they expect Cassel to return to work this week. Returning to work and being ready to perform well in the team’s biggest game of the season on Sunday against San Diego are two different things. ESPN’s Adam Schefter is reporting the Chiefs are viewing Cassel as being questionable to play in the game.

Clearly, this is terrible timing. The Chiefs are 8-4 and would take a major step toward the playoffs with a win over the Chargers. Cassel has played very well for the past two months. If he can’t play, the brittle Brodie Croyle would face the Chiefs in his first action of the season. Croyle last played in Week 13 of the 2009 season.

100-calorie Packs Diet

100-calorie Packs Diet - Did you know recent studies show chronic dieters tend to consume more calories when foods and packages are smaller? Consumer behavior was observed in the study regarding "mini-packs," 100-calorie food packages that are marketed to help people control calorie intake.

The study revealed that one group that over-consumes the mini-packs is chronic dieters - individuals making a conscious effort in trying to manage their weight and food intake.

This shows that the distorted perception of small packages may actually undermine dieters' attempts to limit calories.

Consider this: Consumers perceive the mini-packs to be a generous portion of food - numerous small food morsels in each pack and multiple mini-packs in each box - while on the other hand, consumers perceive the mini-packs to be diet food. For chronic dieters, this perceptual dilemma causes a tendency to overeat, due to their emotion-laden relationship with food.

In a series of focus group studi…
