70 Year old Bodybuilder - Melanie

I just posted the training routine and some of the diet a 70-year-old bodybuilder Melanie from England.   She is in incredible shape it looks like she's about 40 years old.  She has been training for most of her life and really hard for the last 15 years.

She is living proof that if we continue to train scientifically and watch your diet we can stay in shape and look great for our entire life.

The new one second slicer

Yes I know I have seen many product advertised and when I took the plunge and bought them to be greatly lacking.    But I have found that this product has been a very good purchase for someone interested in health

I have been able to cut up fruit salads in a matter of a minute and also cut up onions,  tomatoes, zucchini,  most any kind of vegetables and then cook or put them in salads.

The only problem I see is sometimes what you were cutting up will stick to the plastic part you push down where you can easily scrape them off. It also has two different size cutting blades that you can use the reverse.   And the good thing is you could also use it to store what you just cut up in the fridge  very easily.

You can find them online so they have a infomercial. They can also be washed by hand or easily inside the dishwasher.  I use one and I also gave one to my daughter. I would highly recommend it for a project for you to use or a gift for anyone interested in being healthy.  It really makes cutting up vegetables or fruit something that could be done in seconds and therefore providing you with a very healthy meals

Is shoulder pain affecting your workouts. Then you may have carpal tunnel syndrome

I have an extensive article of this up on my website

I have been experiencing shoulder pain for the last 6 to 8 weeks when I try to work out.   That means even when I try to do dumbbell curls I have a sharp burning pain in the front of my shoulders.  When I try to do dumbbell bench presses, or any other form of benchpress I have  Extreme pain in my front shoulders.

Do you have pain in your shoulders, your neck, and do you have pain when you try to sleep?   Have you stop doing certain exercises or sports because of the constant pain and your shoulders when you try them?   If so then this article will help you take care of that problem. 

 Now I was blaming the heavyweights I was using and lowered the weights but still the pain persisted.  Plus when you're dumbbell bench press goes from 65 pounds to 25 pounds you realize you're not going to get the results you want.

But I also noticed that when I was not on the computer for 8 to 10 hours a day that my shoulders did not ache and there was not the pain level that I had when I was on the computer. I could also almost get through a normal bodybuilding workout.

So I did some on line computer investigation and found out that I have a form of carpal tunnel syndrome called  Uppercross syndrome. 

Simply put I am a hunt and peck typist and I spend sometimes 8 to 10 hours a day in front of a computer.  And that means I am leaning forward with my head forward as I type. And that makes my shoulders and spine try to support my head from an unnatural position.  And so the shoulders and upper back or working 10 times harder than they should to support my neck.

And that results in constant shoulder pain in the front and sometimes back of the shoulder, pain in the neck, and pain when trying to sleep. 

In other words I was in constant pain so I have now been making sure I am sitting straight up-and-down and also I got a new computer desk.   That way I can see the keyboard through glass what I maybe working on just looking at the computer screen and making sure my back and neck are up straight.

I am all so now making sure I do exercises every 5 to 10 minutes I do not sit without moving on the computer for two to three hours at a time without moving.    

We need to increase our shoulder flexibility again and get our spine and upper neck back in alignment.  And we need to make sure we do this each and every day,  or there will be serious issues in the future and our shoulder and neck area.

So please read my article on my website and I will see what I have exercise pictures and video up soon
