German Volume Training or more commonly known as GVT or the Ten sets method is a weight training program commonly seen amongst bodybuilders or weightlifters (Hansen, 2003). This training method was created during the 1970s by German National Weight Lifting coach Rolf Feser with the sole purpose of gaining power, strength and muscle mass over the course of a certain period of the training. ( Croft, 2014). This study is a brief review of GVT and its pros and cons to the athlete. According to a study by (Cazeault,2014), the following are the benefits of using GVT in sports training: a.Improve muscle mass, b. Improve muscle endurance and c.strength improvement.
Dumbbells are one of the best pieces of home gym equipment anyone can own. They take up a very small amount of space and can be used to work almost every muscle in the body. There are literally hundreds of different exercises you can do with them but below are the top 5 dumbbell workouts.
Have you ever wondered which sport to play? Even though there are many sports to choose from, I think people should play baseball. Baseball is a game that you play on a field called a diamond. You play offence and defence. When you are on offence, you hit the baseball that the pitcher throws to you. On defence, you try to catch the baseballs that the other teams hit. People should play baseball because it makes them stronger, it helps people make new friends, and it helps keep people healthy through exercise.
Cellulite is an uncomfortable physical blemish that can be found on most women after puberty. Cellulite manifests around the abdomen and pelvic areas. It adds a lumpy, uneven texture to the skin comparable to an orange peel. This development of the skin can cause people to look unattractive in bathing suits or tight-fitting clothes. Because of this many people struggle through treatments and exercises on how to get rid of cellulite and it’s unfortunate appearance on their body.
You will sit on the floor and clasp your hands. You then rotate left and right rapidly with your hands touching the floor each time. Both of your feet must be off the ground at all times as well! This is a fast-paced movement exercise and you have to do 50 repetitions! No doubt, you will feel the pain during the entire session; however, all the pain will be gone right away when you stop. Hence, do your best to complete the entire routine without stopping!
* Plank/Side Plank. One of the more advanced core muscle workouts, the plank/side plank strengthens the muscles of your abdomen and lower back to give your body that much needed stability as you run. Begin in a push-up position. Make sure that you keep your body in a straight line as your forearms hold you steady and your elbows are placed directly below your shoulders. Your abdominals must be pulled in. Hold this position for 30 seconds. For the side plank, shift to your side, keeping one elbow directly under your shoulder as you do so. Both feet should be on the floor with your top foot in front. Slowly raise your hips until your body is in a straight line. Hold this position for 30 seconds before doing it to the other side. As your core muscle strength improves, you should be able to hold the plank/side plank positions for a couple of
To be completely honest, no one’s quite sure who invented inversion therapy. Poke around on the internet and you’ll find pictures of spinal-stretching contraptions that date back to the Hippocratic time of 460 BC. I’ll admit, a Hippocratic bench looks too much like a torture device, but an inversion table is a different story. They just look sporty.

Two of the most popular methods of lifting weights are powerlifting and CrossFit. Powerlifting predominately focuses on building strength within the muscles; on the other hand, CrossFit focuses on muscular strength, endurance, and cardiovascular health. Although both of these lifting methods seem to build muscle and better the body, there are positive, negative, and long term effects that come along with each one of these methods.
Stand up straight, holding a dumbbell in each hand. Your palms should be at a neutral position (faced- in) and your elbows should be close to your upper body. This is the starting position.
In adults, the elbow is the second most dislocated joint in the body, succeeding shoulder dislocations. Most elbow dislocations occur in the posterior direction, which causes a disengagement of the “coronoid process of the ulna from the trochlea of the humerus” (Chicharoen, Kwon, Windle, & Lovato, 2014). Typically, the mechanism of injury is falling on an outstretched hand (FOOSH) with the elbow in an extended position upon impact. For example, an athlete participating in the first practices for two-a-day fall football was running a defensive back contact drill, and upon collision of the ground, the athlete extended his arm to catch himself. This case study, as like many previous athletes, presented with a shortened forearm that was held in
Separating a little legs and arms at the sides of the body should be slowly up to shoulder height and then lower them slowly to the hip height but without touching or lean on it. The back should always be straight to avoid damage. The two arms are raised and lowered at the same time, always without haste, slowly, starting with 15 reps and up each week to reach at least 25 repetitions. You can also increase the weight
Geoffrey Morell, a highly renowned Medical Intuitive and Energy Healer with over 20 years of expertise in magnetic, intuitive, psychic, and spiritual healing, and co-founder of Weston A. Price Foundation along with wife, Sally Fallon Morell, and nutritionist Mary G. Enig, Ph.D., discusses about the common concern of sciatica amongst people of all age. Having suffered the medical condition for several years himself, he states that it is important for everybody to clearly understand and diagnose the condition and its extent so as to get proper treatment to cure the condition. He also states that the extent of sciatica isn’t the same in every patient. Some may suffer the pain only intermittently
Parkinson disease is a progressive neurodegenerative disorder that is mainly characterized by tremors, postural rigidity, bradykinesia, and postural instability. Parkinson 's is caused by the death or deterioration of brain cells that produce dopamine, a neurotransmitter that helps regulate movement, coordination, and emotional responses. The rapid combinations of boxing, the mix of hand-eye coordination and footwork, helps re-discipline a body that has lost touch with the mind 's eye.
In the free weight section of the gym, the weights go upward of 100lbs and rarely are those weights used. However, on the rare occasion that they are used, it is as if the whole gym stops and everyone watches to see what that person will do with the weight. If the person performs a simple shoulder shrug, then everyone goes back to their business. If someone attempts to do a dumbbell row with those dumbbells, some watch and the majority returns to their workout. The real silence comes when someone attempts to use the dumbbells to bench press. People put over 200lbs on the barbell bench press all the time, yet no one uses the dumbbells. The reason is that the dumbbells require one to fully have control of the weight and ultimately it is a lot harder. At the Herbert Wellness Center, the students attempt to lift the heaviest weight possible and disregard their form. So long as they are seen with the heavy weights and perform a set with at least 1 rep, usually with sloppy form that could lead to injury, the students feel satisfied. When a student grabs a heavy weight, generally they look around the gym first to see who would be watching their set and once they have done that, they attempt the weight.
