Filed under:

Thought I would share this customer review with everyone because there are some questions here many other people have been asking:

I also discovered many common foods to avoid because they may be a catalyst to inflammation, or may irritate the nervous system which will increase pain perception.
As always this may not be true for each individual, however the list of beneficial foods and foods to avoid is something to take into consideration when eating throughout one's recovery phase.


• Pork, red meat
• Whole milk, Cheese, cream, yogurt

Do these as a circuit (one after the other) 4 times without taking a break or resting. Your jog and your plank will be all the break you need!

From my own experience in working out and training others, I know how important music is to the experience and success of the session—the high and energy that can only come from the right playlist. “Studies have shown that listening to music during exercise can improve results, both in terms of being a motivator (people exercise longer and more vigorously to music) and as a distraction from negatives like fatigue,” says The New York Times in “They’re Playing My Song: Time to Work Out,” their story on the issue.
Based on the research of Dr. Costas Karageorghis, an associate professor of sport psychology who rates music according to its “motivational qualities for various physical activities,” The Times reported that the key factors for songs for working out are:
