Bullworker Vs Isokinator

Is it really a fair comparison to put the Bullworker up against the Isokinator. Because really, they only have two main things in common. Those are, that they both focus on Isometrics / resistance training, and the other is that they were both made / invented by the same person, Gert F. Koelbel. So why do people look to compare these two devices.

Well, I suppose they both fall into the strange "contraption" category, where they are both looked at more like "one man bands" or Swiss Army Knives of the exercise world, where one tool can potentially do it all. In many ways that is the correct perception, because that's how many people view these devices, and that's how they are actually marketed as well.

Effectiveness and Results
If used regularly both can be effective. Resistance training is one of the best things for increasing strength, mass and definition. So any form of resistance training is definitely a step in the right direction for those who want to …

The Isokinator: Training on the go

The Isokinator ClassicReview: Mobile Fitness. Busy lifestyles, working away  a lot, and also not having much room for exercising at home. There are many reasons why some people look for a portable training device. There have been a few products that have been really popular over the years. One of those was the Bullworker, which offered true old school resistance training.

This was a great product, offering many different types of exercises in the form of pushing and pulling against a spring loaded device with two bow-like plastic covered wires that the user gripped on to. The Bullworker is still used today. It's been revitalised with the introduction of a new and improved product line, all following the general design and exercise routines that the original Bullworker offered. Although it may not look like it, the Isokinator, in some ways, is similar to the Bullworker.

They are both portable and use resistance / isometrics to train certain parts of the body. Both are very effecti…

Weight-Loss: Picture Realistic Goals

Here are some tips on how to get yourself motivated to lose weight. It's easier than you think! Find a picture of yourself that you don't like because seeing it makes you feel like you need to lose weight. Save that picture and keep it posted on the refrigerator and if you can make another copy, put it on the pantry too. That way, you have to look at it every time you go to eat and you'll have to decide whether it's worth it to put those calories into your body.

Don't focus on how much weight you need to lose or how many sizes you want to drop. When you look at all that you need to accomplish, it can be overwhelming. Instead, take baby steps. Focus on losing 5 pounds or dropping 1 size. Celebrate the small victories (but not with food!!). Get a massage or buy yourself something nice in your new, smaller size! Or buy a fabulous new pair of shoes. Get a friend who wants to lose weight too. Encourage each other and exercise together.

If you have someone who is countin…

3 Tips For Healthy Teen Weight Loss

As a teenager in this day and age, it's extremely easy to fall into the traps of unhealthy eating. I should know. I am 18-years-old and have been overweight since about fifth grade. I tried many many "fad diets" in the past... and none seemed to work. Yes, I would lose weight; but I would gain it all right back. In September 2016, I started seeing Dr.Kimberly Turner, a nutritionist with Aurora Sinai Medical Centre in Milwaukee,Wisconsin. She and I discussed healthy food options and exercising. And since September, I have lost 32 pounds and this time I have kept it off.. Which is a first. I will now share with you some of the more helpful tips I got out of my meetings with the nutritionist.

Tip #1: Exercise is important, bottom line. A lot of teens that are overweight, (or above the average weight that is ideal for themselves) find that a lot of the normal everyday exercises are to rigorous,and not fun. I myself used to think this, then my mom bought our family the Wii …

Crafting Your Way to NY Weight Loss

Sent in by Amanda From Pasadena

I know it sounds funny, but trust me a good hobby can help your cause. With the holidays over and your New Year's commitment to taking better care of yourself, it's even more important to limit the everyday snacking pitfalls. If you're like me, you indulged over the holidays and now it's time to get back to better choices for 2017 and beyond.

There are tons of tricks, like brushing your teeth right after dinner, but they don't always keep me from snacking or just pigging out. What does work for me is knitting. Of course, any craft that you use your hands in will do. Scrap booking, needlepoint, quilting, jewelry making all will keep you busy. I've found that knitting in front of my favourite show curbs my urge to have a snack. I focus on what I'm doing instead of eating out of habit or ou of boredom.

As a bonus you will learn a new skill and can get a head start on presents for next year. I taught myself to knit from a bo…
