First, let's answer the more general question: "Are smoothies good for you?"  Smoothies are crushed fruit and/or vegetables blended with ice with the addition of other things, such as yoghurt, milk, nuts etc. So, basically, a smoothie is a juice with lots of extra stuff added to it... Читать далее

Whether you should run or walk to get fitter largely depends upon where you're starting from.

It very much depends upon how you define ‘bad for you’. In my line of research, we do a lot of work with people who have metabolic diseases – people who might be overweight or obese, who have diabetes, or have cardio-vascular illnesses. We go through a rigorous screening procedure in... Читать далее

Managing Director, Isokinetic London, sports injury specialists  · 17 февраля 2017
“In 5-a-side football, the body takes a lot of strain. The playing surface is often harder than grass because the game is played on an artificial surface. A lot has been done to improve the quality of these pitches over the last decade, what with the introduction of 3G surfaces – a... Читать далее

Health and Fitness Expert  · 1 ноября 2016
Personally I tell my clients to aim for 4-5 litres per day. I also advise them to drink an electrolyte drink during the workout to replace the vital salts lost during exercise. The best product would be Herbalife CR7 Drive which is formulated by leading scientists in the health and... Читать далее

First of all, look at the style of running you want to do – there are shoes for sprinters, marathon runners, weekend joggers, so pick something that’s suited to your field. I would say, look at the best in that area and check their feet. Someone like Mo Farah wears shoes that are like... Читать далее

What is the biggest myth about physical fitness?

I would say that the biggest myth is that you can 'train out' a bad diet. Too many people eat what they want and try and 'run it off' but it just doesn't work like that. To make real changes, you need to maintain a balanced and healthy diet as well as a sensible exercise regime.

First of all, there’s no substitute for real food. After training, I would advocate lean proteins such as fish, pulses, beans, nuts and hummus, which is great because it has loads of chickpeas in there (they’re high in protein) plus a small amount of carbohydrates to replace the... Читать далее
