3 Why’s Fish Oil should be your FIRST supplement

1 Why: Helps Combat EVERY disease…

You can google Fish oil and ‘ X ‘ (any disease). You’ll find reams of pages (average 1,750,000) & studies supporting the fact that fish oil helps to reduce the risk to whatever disease you type.

The benefits are FAR REACHING.

So a question you could be having right now is How do I know I need it? The answer is testing. If you don’t know your Omega status it is well worth finding out.

The further you are away from a ratio of 2:1 (Omega6:Omega3) the higher your risk to illness, ailments & disease. (I’ll show you a streamlined way to test & perfect your status in the quickest time possible at the end of this article)

 

2 Why: Fat Loss..

Again you can do your own research on Google which will pull up just under 5,000,000 pages of data supporting fish oil supplementation & fat loss.

If you want to look & feel your best for something that takes less than 30 seconds a day then fish oil supplementation is a no brainer.

The only question you should have is ‘ Which the best product & how much does it cost? ‘ (I’ll give you a genius option at a highly competetive price the end of this article…)

 

3 Why: Builds Muscle & Lowers Inflammation…

There is a more recent term coming through called ‘ INLAMMAGEING ‘ linking the rate of ageing with inflammation.

Bottom line is the more we control inflammation, think painful joints, digestive issues, outbreaks of rashes & acne on the skin, the longer we keep our youthful looks & vibrancy.

At the same time we get to build more muscle which is one of the top determinants of longevity. Fact is the more muscle you have the more calories you’ll burn (even at rest) so basically put the more muscle you have the less likely you will get fatter !

Exercising While Pregnant

Pregnancy doesn’t mean that you need to stop exercising.  In fact – exercising can actually help you maintain optimal health and performance, reduce pregnancy symptoms & improve the overall health of you & your baby.

Being pregnant can however – mean that you need to modify some of your exercises to accommodate your change in posture & ensure the safety of you & your baby.

Below are wonderful reasons to keep exercising as well as tips & tricks to keep in mind when exercising during pregnancy.

Reminders for Exercising While Pregnant…

As your baby grows, so does your stomach & so does your weight on the scale. Remember when you exercise now it is the equivalent of wearing a weight vest before you were pregnant– which of course will make the exercises more difficult & put more stress on your system.

Remember that muscles, tendons & ligaments shift in integrity due to hormone & chemical fluctuations so some exercises you used to perform may not be possible, comfortable or wise – especially in the third trimester.

Listen Carefully…

Above all, remember to listen to your body.  Warm up & cool down & remember to drink plenty of fluids to stay hydrated.  – This is important at all times but particularly when pregnant!

Walking is a great activity as it provides moderate aerobic conditioning & yet is not jarring on your joints.  Swimming & cycling on a stationary bike is also a great way to provide your body with aerobic activity yet still keep it low impact.

Base your workouts…

If you were an avid exerciser before becoming pregnant  – aim to keep your routine similar while decreasing complexity & intensity as you progress through your pregnancy.

If you did not exercise before getting pregnant but want to start because you are aware of the health benefits for you & your baby then begin slowly & keep it very simple. It is always best to consult with a professional who can guide you through the process that will benefit you most.

Check with your doctor to ensure that your activities are healthy & safe.  As you continue through your pregnancy, modify exercises so you continue to get the benefits you are looking for but in a way that is safe & comfortable.

For instance up until half way through the pregnancy you my feel safe completing compound exercise (multi joint) like squats or lunges.

However, as you progress further you may alter your workouts to contain more isolation exercises like leg extensions or bicep curls.

Discontinue any activities that are painful or cause any excessive discomfort.

Heart Rate…

Around pregnancy you should pay particular attention to your heart rate. 220 minus your age gives you an approximation of your maximum heart rate.

For instance a thirty year old women’s maximum heart rate is 190 beats per minute.

You should not exceed this. In fact you would be wise to not exceed 75% of your maximum heart rate.

Studies show that if you train within 55-75% of your maximum heart rate your body finds it easier to remain in equilibrium (balance).

Therefore you will require less nutritional support or lifestyle changes to remain in optimal health.

So for a thirty-year-old-women that’s a low heart rate point of 104 & a high point of 142 beats per minute.

How Much…

The CDC (center for disease control & prevention) recommends 150 minutes per week – that’s two hours thirty minutes.

Spread that out over five days making thirty minutes workouts. The exercises should be a selection of strength-based movements with low impact cardio as suggested earlier. Mix it up.

Just remember to keep an eye on your heart rate.

When Should You Stop Exercising…

Every pregnancy is unique. Even if it is your second or third child remember to talk to your doctor about your exercise routine & discontinue any exercises that he or she thinks are unhealthy for your condition.

Other warning signs that should cause you to stop & check with your doctor include:

  • Heart disease such as pulmonary hypertension
  • Lung disease such as severe asthma or chronic bronchitis
  • Cervical insufficiency / Premature dilation
  • Multiple pregnancy (twins, triplets or more) – multiple pregnancies are at higher risk for preterm labour so check with your doctor about any & all exercise routines.
  • Vaginal bleeding

Again, discuss your particular symptoms with your doctor to see when & how it is safest for you to exercise.

To Your Best Health,
