PLANTAR FASCIITIS AND RELIEVING IT

Plantar Fasciitis is one of the most common sources of heel pain. Plantar fasciitis is pain on the bottom of one or both heels, caused by irritation to the plantar fascia, which are the dense tissue bands that connect the heels to the toes.

Fasciia pain is usually can be felt on the first step out of bed in the morning.
If worsened, pain can be felt any time while walking, running or jumping.

Plantar fasciitis is probably one of the most annoying staggering injuries one can have. I would know, I suffered with it for a good year. It impacted my whole life, I had to stop running, playing soccer, doing certain workouts and basically impaired my lifestyle in such a disapointing way.

Points to keep in mind:

  1. Stretching your foot 2-3 times a day (up to 5 minutes)
  2. Nutrients to relax tendon – magnesium 500mg/day/vitamin B5 /Fish oil Omega 3 / Vitamin C
  3. anti-inflamatory diet
  4. the right shoes to help stretch tendons (walking bearfoot helps and/or wearing Vibram barefoot shoes)

I wish someone shared this video with me then, but here is it. I hope it helps you if you are suffering from this.

What Does Your Heart Say About You?

heartrate

Fit bit, Garmin, all these exciting fitness trackers have really changed how people view their health and lifestyle. It has, I would say, even changed how some perceive their lives… Maybe starting taking their health more seriously… So I appraise these companies.

Now what does it all mean? Steps, sure we know. But what about the heart rate? Do you know what your pulsing heart rate really means? Is it normal, is it healthy … ?

What should your Target Heart beats per minute (bpm) be for Exercise, Losing Weight and simply for your Health? Fact is, knowing your heart rate can help you track your health and fitness level, and even give you fitness-health goals.

What is a Resting Heart Rate?

It is  the number of times your heart beats per minute when you are at REST essentially. Lower is actually better, in fact, someone more active will have a lower resting heart rate than someone with lower health conditions or higher body weight. Lower heart rate typically means your heart muscle is in better condition and doesn’t have to work as hard to maintain a steady beat as opposed to those with a higher rate.

According to American Heart Association,

For most of us, between 60 and 100 beats per minute (bpm) is normal. The rate can be affected by factors like stress, anxiety, hormones, medication, and how physically active you are. An athlete or more active person may have a resting heart rate as low as 40 beats per minute. Now that’s chill!

Here is a quick guide for your reference:

Age Target HR Zone 50-85% Average Maximum Heart Rate, 100%
20 years 100-170 bpm 200 bpm
30 years 95-162 bpm 190 bpm
35 years 93-157 bpm 185 bpm
40 years 90-153 bpm 180 bpm
45 years 88-149 bpm 175 bpm
50 years 85-145 bpm 170 bpm
55 years 83-140 bpm 165 bpm
60 years 80-136 bpm 160 bpm
65 years 78-132 bpm 155 bpm
70 years 75-128 bpm 150 bpm

PS. Your maximum heart rate is about 220 minus your age.

If you do not have a tracker, you can always do it old school: Take your pulse on the inside of your wrist, on the thumb side. Use the tips of your first two fingers (not your thumb) and press lightly over the artery. Count your pulse for 30 seconds and multiply by 2 to find your beats per minute.

So bottom line, if your heart rate is too low, kick your self into a more active lifestyle. If it’s too high, calm it down and stay healthy. Either way, don’t get out of the targeted beats.

Weight Training and Healthy Eating

To summarise it. Eating greens and doing cardio is not the way to get lean, says personal trainer. Weight training is key and ends up burning more fat as you continue burning it throughout the day. It is inportant to note that to burn fat, you must be in a calorie deficit throughout your day. High Intensity Inrerval Training is the best cardio and most effective method of losing weight.

PRIMAL FITNESS & HEALTH

Have you heard of the Paleolithic approach?

Apparently running, aerobic exercise, is not the primal fitness approach for your health and your heart. In fact, weight lifting and anaerobic does it much better.

Mercola states that:

A heart rate of 180 minus your age is the ideal maximum heart rate for building aerobic capacity. That’s the heart rate at which you burn the most fat and tap into your glycogen stores the least. For this reason, you also need to be an efficient fat burner

Loss of metabolic capacity is what hurts one most when aging. Adults 45 years or older benefit most by building muscle than by doing aerobic exercise. With this exercise, you regain metabolic flexibility to raise your energy levels and diminish hunger, which helps you lower fat and have better lifelong health and peak performance. Many take Strength Training for granted and believe the best way to lose weight and keep healthy is by running, however that is not the ideal heart rate for Optimal health gains.

Another important workout to consider is high-intensity interval training, which is also an anaerobic exercise.

Some health basics to consider too,

Most people simply eat too much, and too often, and an overriding reason for this is because they’ve lost the metabolic flexibility to efficiently burn fat for fuel, and are running on carbs all the time. Since carbohydrates burn much faster than fat, you have to continuously keep eating.
