Stress Management

One thing we all deal with is Stress. So those who are trying to live a more healthier lifestyle, Stress Management is key. For the most part I think we all can agree. That we know what stresses us out. So the key is to learn how to manage it. Now here are 8 simple things you can do to help relieve stress.

1. Exercise: is one the most best ways to relieve stress. Those who exercise regularly are less likely to deal with anxiety. Than those who don’t exercise. Exercise also lowers our stress hormones, such as cortisol. Exercise can also improve our sleep quality. And of course can help build your confidence

2. Massage: helps to stimulate blood circulation around your muscles, which increases the flow of oxygen and nutrients to your muscles, leading to increased flexibility, among other benefits. Tension headaches are a very common type of headache. … One of the major causes of tension headaches is stress.

3. Spending time with your Pet Animal will help reduce stress and improve your mood. Interacting with pets may help release oxytocin, a brain chemical that promotes a positive mood. Having a pet may also help relieve stress by giving you purpose, keeping you active and providing companionship — all qualities that help reduce anxiety.

4. Listening to smoothing music may also help reduce stress, anxiety. Slow-paced instrumental music can induce the relaxation response by helping lower blood pressure and heart rate as well as stress hormones.

5. Taking a Yoga class relieves stress primarily by increasing body and breath awareness. Yoga can enhance mood and may even be as effective as antidepressant drugs at treating depression and anxiety.

6. Learn how to just Say NO. Not all stressors are within your control, but some are. Take control over the parts of your life that you can change and are causing you stress. One way to do this may be to say “no” more often. This is especially true if you find yourself taking on more than you can handle, as juggling many responsibilities can leave you feeling overwhelmed. Being selective about what you take on — and saying no to things that will unnecessarily add to your load — can reduce your stress levels.

7. Hanging out with Friends and Family can help you get through stressful times. Being part of a network of friends and family can help you feel like you are apart of something -having companionship.

8. Lowering your Caffeine intake may help relieve stress and anxiety. Caffeine is a stimulate we can find is energy drinks, coffee, and sodas. Too much can increase anxiety.

Unfortunately stress and anxiety may arise in your workplace and personal life. It is what it is. But there are many ways to help reduce the pressure you feel.

The idea of these tips is to help get your mind away from the source of stress.

So daily exercise, mindfulness, listening to music and physical intimacy can all help to relieve anxiety — and they will improve your overall work-life balance as well.

Dead Lifts

Proper Alignment should be first priority. 

1.) The Bar must be placed over the middle of the foot.

2.) The Arms must be locked into extension.

3.) The back must be held in rigid extension. A slight thoracic rounding is acceptable as long as you can maintain overall tightness.

4.) The Shoulders (scapulae) must be directly over top of the bar.

As long as these four steps are satisfied, the hips will be in precisely that correct position no matter how high they feel.

Conventional Dead Lift:

When first setting up, you want to get a hip width stance. With your toes pointed out slightly, and bar about 1-2 inches from your shins. This will place the bar over the middle of your foot. Then you want to grip the bar without lowering your hips. And just outside your thighs. After getting a tight grip on the bar, start to lower your hips slowly. Once you shins have made contact with the bar. You will then stop and pull chest up. This will help flatten your back. With the shoulders they should be back and down. And this will help place back into a rigid extension and reaches all the way down to the lumbar region. A most crucial aspect of this process is to lift the chest up and contract the lats to set back angle. 

With a tight grip we want to drive the bar off the ground, while pushing your feet through the floor. Dragging the bar up your legs making contact with shins. Once bar reaches your knees. Contact your gluteus (hip thrust) to bring hips forward to meet the bar. While continuing to drag bar up your thighs. Standing fully erect  with your shoulders back, chest up and knees locked.

As in the squat, an initial breath should be taken before descending into position and held through out the movement until bar comes to lock out. In order to maximize skill acquisition, multiply sets of single reps are often preferred than multiple rep sets.

Sumo Dead Lift:

Is a much wider stance than the conventional dead lift. By widening the distance between the feet, a shorter range of motion is created. Start by setting the stance with toes pointed out and shins touching or 1 to 2 inches from the bar. This will vary depending on your flexibility. If you are a taller and less flexible athlete you should set up with your shins further away from the barbell. After you set your feet, bend over at the waist while keeping the legs as straight as possible but without lowering the hips. Your grip should be just inside your thighs. Squeezing the bar as hard as possible while leaving your hips up. Lower your hips slowly and allow the knees to come forward and tell your stand touch the bar if they haven’t already. Once your stance contact the bar, stop and pull up your chest as hard as you can. Similar to the conventional deadlifts, this maneuver arches your back And set the torso angle. Just before initiating the pull, tighten every muscle in your body and simultaneously drive the feet down into the ground. Keep your head up and squeeze your glutes to bring the hips toward the bar while dragging the bar up the legs. Stand fully erect with shoulders back, chest out it up, it’s through, and knees locked.

1.) Stress management is part of a healthy lifestyle. As we all deal with stress but the key is to learn how to manage it as extra stress can lead or cause weight gain.

2.) You could be building muscle which can cause weight to stay or even go up. But doesn’t mean you added body fat.

3.) Getting proper rest each night is key factor to recovery and weight/fat loss goals.

4.) Just because it fits within your daily macronutrient requirements doesn’t always mean it’s what’s best for our bodies based on goals and personal limitations. So be mindful of what you’re eating.
