    A power slide is a very easy way to stop while your speed is very fast. The best way I can describe it is think of Zorro, and when they do their nice, little fencing technique, so when you're bent down in your ready position, you'll actually be going in the opposite direction backwards. As you put pressure on your front leg, you're going to have a straight leg all the way down, and have pressure on the inside wheels, so it kind of comes to a complete stop backwards... .

  • Do Cellulite Rollers Work?
    FREE 0
    A lot of my clients ask me if they should get treatments with cellulite rollers and do they really work? It's important to know that cellulite rollers do work, but it's incredibly temporary. In other words, if you're going to do this kind of a treatment before a vacation and you know that it might not last after the vacation, then go for it. What they're really doing is using pressure with the rollers plus heat to loosen up your connective tissue in-between your fat cells. Therefore, hide the fat better. Push the fat out less, if you will. Like I said, It's very temporary. You are going to need more than one treatment even if you want to see a difference in the first place. It might not be the best thing if you're really trying to lose weight, or if you're looking for a long term solution.

    Step 1: Don't starve yourself!}: Don't starve yourself! Your body will go into survival mode and hang on to any fat around your midsection for dear life. Step 2: Replace soda with water: Sip flat water throughout the day. Dehydration and carbonated beverages both cause belly bloat. Step 3: Avoid trans fats: Limit your intake of foods that contain trans fats, like packaged snacks and stick margarine. Studies have indicated that people who eat a diet high in trans fats are more likely to gain weight -- and gain it around their middle -- than those who don't, even if they eat the same number of calories. Step 4: Give up gum: If you chew gum, stop. It makes you swallow a lot of air, which inflates your belly like a balloon. Step 5: Eat "good" fats Eat foods that contain monounsaturated fatty acids, like avocadoes, nuts, and olives. Research indicates that they can help reduce belly fat, so long as they're eaten in moderation and in place of bad fats and simple carbs, rather than in addition to them.

Tip: Always eat breakfast to kick-start your metabolism in the morning. Step 3: Eat lean protein: Eat lean protein, like skinless chicken or egg whites, at every meal, and aim to make lean protein 30 percent of your daily food intake. A Dutch study found that people who did increased their metabolism all day long, even while they slept!

So, part of the problem is not just losing the weight, but actually keeping that weight off... .

Calorie is a unit of energy, so when you eat food digestion begins in your stomach and then your intestines, and your body absorbs the nutrients that it needs in to your bloodstream. Throughout the day, your body will use those calories to help everyday functions of your heart, your lung, your brain, and even just going about your daily life.

  • What Is Hot Stone Massage Therapy?
    By: ARVC
    FREE 0
    Hot stone massage therapy is the application of hot stones to the body when you are giving a massage. Typically the stones are basalt stones, which are river rocks, and once you apply the lotion to those stones they turn a nice beautiful black ebony color. Typically the stones are heated in a hot stone warmer, which is somewhat like a crock pot, up to about one hundred and forty five degrees, the lowest temperature that they normally are is one hundred and thirty five degrees, and it depends on the area of the body that your placing the stones, how hot you want them. On the extremities you typically want the stones a little bit cooler than, lets say, on the back or the feet you can handle a little bit more heat. Also, interestingly enough, often times fair skinned people can handle a little less heat that people with a little darker skin, or Mediterranean skin. So it's definitely important to check in with your client and figure out how much heat they like. At the end of the day hot stone massages are a really nice relaxing way for deep tissue to be delivered into the muscles or even lighter pressure, that heat really helps you access those muscles much faster, and it's a lovely, relaxing, therapy.
