The Best Exercise For Your Age   

28 Sep 2018

The Best Exercise For Your Age

If you want to lose a few pounds for party season, exercise is key. Not only can it help you to fit into your perfect party dress, but it also helps us to feel our best throughout winter. It's essential to remember that as with many things, workouts aren't a one-type-fits-all kind of thing. If you want to be as strong as possible in your older years, be sure to do the right kind of exercise when you're younger and throughout your life. Here's the type of exercise you should be doing, according to your age group...

20s

Right now you're at your physical peak of strength, speed and recovery. If you want to maintain that as much as possible later in life, then you should try to lay down healthy eating and exercising patterns now. Aim for five workouts per week with a mix of moderate aerobic activity and strength training. Enjoy a variety of different workouts to endurance, strength and lean muscle, which will be easier to retain later on in life. 

workout

30s

As your body and lifestyle changes in your 30s, so should your workouts. It is recommended to focus on pilates or a dynamic form of yoga in this time to improve your cardiovascular system as well as your flexibility. The stress-relieving benefits of yoga also compliment the often more stressful lifestyle of those in their 30s. 

exercise

40s-50s

In your 40s and 50s you begin to lose muscle mass and cardiovascular function begins to decline. Weightlifting and body weight exercises can be extremely beneficial to combat loss of muscle mass, whilst HIIT is the ideal option for busy ladies to burn fat and improve cardiovascular function, with highly effective workouts taking as little as 20 minutes.

exercise

60s

At this time your thoughts may be turning to maintaining your physical functionality as you age. Increased weight training will help you to maintain muscle mass, whilst swimming will help to maintain cardiovascular functionality. Exercises such as pilates, dance and yoga can be extremely beneficial to help you retain flexibility and balance as you age.

swimming

70s+

Regular exercise offers protection against ageing. The focus should now be on low-intensity, low impact workouts, such as tai chi to improve joint health and balance. Brisk walking and even running can also be extremely beneficial at this time in your life.

The Benefits of a One Day Liquid Fast   

25 Jun 2018

The Benefits of a One Day Liquid Fast

 juice fast

Whilst liquid diets have been popular for some time, they have also attracted a bad name for themselves due to the negative effects associated with them. However, according to experts this is because many people are doing them the wrong way and for the wrong reasons. For best results, a 24-hour liquid fast is the perfect amount of time, and any longer will actually lead to the opposite of the desired effects.

juice diet

So what are the benefits? Digesting food accounts for around 50% of the bodies energy expenditure, so by only consuming liquids you are taking out a lot of the hard work and leaving excess energy to be used elsewhere. Therefore, a one day liquid fast will leave you feeling energised. You will feel lighter in body and mind, brain fog will lift, and you will find it easier to concentrate. By consuming blended fruit and veg, you will be taking in plenty of antioxidants, which help with the bodied natural detoxification process, helping your vital organs to work more quickly.

liquid diet

The fast will also give your metabolism a small shock, helping to to work more effectively. However, if you carry on for too many days, your body will go into survival mode and your metabolism will slow down, leaving you with less energy. This is why 24 hours is the perfect amount of time. However, you can do one liquid day per week or month.

Soups, juices, smoothies and herbal teas will form the basis of your liquid day, and remember to drink plenty of water too. How much liquid you consume and when will be determined by your own body, as everyone is different. Try different recipes to find your favourites which have the best effect and give a wide range of fruits and vegetables. Try starting the day with a mug of hot water with the juice of half a lemon, then have a smoothie or juice for breakfast, followed by another as a mid-morning snack. Eat soup for lunch and dinner, with another juice or smoothie as an afternoon snack. This should fill you up if done correctly, and don't be afraid to have an extra drink if you're starving. 

If you're looking to lose weight fast and need a little more help, Bliss are on hand with 3D lipo. 3D liposuction is a non-invasive course of localised fat reduction which combines Ultrasound Cavitation with fat freezing to combat cellulite, tighten skin and drop pounds. This treatment is loved by celebs including Katie Price, Coleen Rooney and Amy Childs. Call Bliss Spa for a free consultation.

Easy Beach Body Workout For Total Confidence   

13 Jun 2018

Easy Beach Body Workout For Total Confidence

 Do you dream of strolling onto the beach and peeling off your cover-up with nothing but confidence and pride in the slimmer, stronger body you've sculpted? The idea of trying to fit in an effective workout regime can seem daunting, but with a little effort and a lot of dedication we believe that you can do it! Try our beach body workout for beginners this summer, and gain results with just three-five short, easy workouts per week. No equipment required! Work through the entire circuit three times. 

beach body

1. Mountain climbers

Begin in push up position with your arms straight and hands beneath your shoulders. Bring your left knee up to your chest, then bring it back and and repeat with your right knee. Do ten reps per leg.

2. Toe touch kicks

Stand with your feet shoulder width apart and hands up in the air. Kick your left leg up high and bring your right hand to touch your toes. Ten reps per leg. 

3. Squats

Stand with your feet shoulder width apart and your hands clasped in front of you or on your hips. Slowly bend your knees down to 90 degrees, pushing your hips back, then return to start position. Repeat for 20 reps.

4. Push ups

Start in a plank position, with your hands just slightly more than shoulder width apart. Lower your body until your chest almost touches the floor, pause, then return to the original position. Repeat for 10 reps.

5. Burpees

Stand with your feet shoulder-width apart and your arms at your sides. Push your hips back, bend your knees, and lower your body as deep as you can into a squat. As you lower place your hands on the floor in front of you, shifting your weight onto them. Jump your legs back, so that you're now in a push up position. Return to start position. Repeat for 20 reps. 

6. Plank

Finish each circuit with a plank. Lie face down with legs extended and elbows bent and directly under shoulders; clasp your hands. Feet should be hip-width apart, and elbows should be shoulder-width apart. Contract your abs, then tuck your toes to lift your body (forearms remain on the ground); you should be in a straight line from head to heels. Hold for 60 seconds if you can, or try for 30 seconds and slowly increase.

18 May 2018

Yoga Poses For a Beach-Ready Body and Mind

 

It's that time of year again when many of us are thinking about how to get that perfect beach body. However, it's also important to prepare your mind to relax and unwind in order to make the most of your summer holiday. Yoga is the ideal way to calm the mind whilst sculpting a strong and sexy beach body. The following poses will tone the legs, butt, abs and upper body. Perform each pose on the left side then the right, at least three times per week for a beach ready body and mind. 

1. Quarter Dog - shoulders, upper back and abs

yogA

Begin in downward facing dog. Lower your forearms to the mat and try to straighten your legs and lower your heels to the floor. Relax your head and direct your gaze towards your belly button. Hold for five breaths.

2. Balancing Star - arms, shoulders, abs and thighs

Plant the sole of your right food firmly on the mat so your toes are pointing left. Place your right hand flat at the front end of your mat facing forwards. Raise your body up off the mat with your left leg and hand raised into the air. Direct your gaze towards your left hand. Hold for five breaths.

 3. Knee up plank - abs, upper body and legs

Place both hands on the mat facing forwards and come into a plant position. Straighten your arms and bring your right knee up to your chest. Hold for five breaths.

4. Burning low lunge - thighs and bum

Keep your left leg in place and bring your right foot forward to between your hands, coming into a low lunge. Lower your torso and reach your right arm underneath your bent right knee. Interlace both hands in front of your right ankle. Keep all the weight in your legs, resisting the urge to lean into your hands. Hold for five breaths.

5. Warrior 3 - abs, back and thighs

Stand upright on your mat. Lift your left leg behind you as you lower your chest so that your left leg and torso are parallel to the floor. Reach your arms out in front of you. Hold for five breaths.

6. Intense East - upper body, bum and thighs

Sit on the mat between your hands and extend your legs in front of you. Place hands 6-8 inches behind you so that your finger tips are facing towards you. Press into your hands and feet as you lift your hips as high as you can, so your spine is in a long line. Lower your head behind you. Hold for five breaths. 

 A blissful body massage is the perfect accompaniment to your yoga routine for ultimate holistic wellbeing. See our full range of deeply relaxing massages to force you to let you of your stress.
