fitness tip: resting between sets

Your rest time between sets will depend on how much weight you lift and what your ultimate goal is. If you are lifting heavy weights to improve your strength, then it is recommended that you rest for a longer period of time between sets (i.e. 2 to 5 minutes). However, if improving endurance is your goal and you are performing high repetitions with lower weights, then a shorter rest time is recommended (i.e. 30 seconds or less). 5

nutrition tip: cold season - fighting back

It's that time of the year again! Avoiding the common cold can be easier said than done but there are ways in which you can boost your immunity to better your chances of staying cold-free! Try boosting your immune system with the help of nutrients many experts believe have infection-fighting properties, such as garlic, ginseng and aloe vera. In the event that you do get sick, don't forget to drink plenty of fluids and get lots of rest to ensure your body is at its best to fight off the symptoms!
