As the saying goes, opposites attract. This is also true for my fitness routine, specifically for my yoga practice and weekly strength training. Even though yoga and strength training don't have much in common at first glance, from my experience they complement each other extremely well. If you ever found yourself on a yoga mat trying to feel and look good doing asanas, then you will recognize yourself in my story. Maybe you will even get inspired to pair your yoga routine with strength training!
Eggs - a pure vitamin and mineral bomb that should not be missed not just at Easter, but also at the daily breakfast table. Eggs are real powerhouses with many valuable nutrients. They are rich in vitamins A, B2, B12, D and folic acid, as well as phosphorus, selenium, iron, zinc and choline. Almost all the proteins and amino acids contained in eggs can be converted and absorbed. And now comes the surprise: egg yolk contains more proteins than the protein itself! Yup, egg yolk consists of about 50% water, 32% fat and 15% proteins. Liquid egg white, on the other hand, is about 90% water and only 10% protein. #sorrynotsorry but so much for the trends of eating only egg white omelette with leeks and spinach on the weekend. Oh yeah, and one thing right up front: the information in this blog post refers exclusively to the chicken eggs and NOT the chocolate eggs.
Ever been to a physiotherapist or orthopedist? Every year, around 400,000 athletes are injured in sports accidents in Switzerland, over 90,000 of them in winter sports. You can't train for accidents, but you can increase your body's resistance. For top athletes, this is a regular routine. In the event of an injury, athletes receive optimal, round-the-clock care from several specialists. For a regular sports enthusiast, the situation looks quite different. One invests much less in injury prevention and preparation and needs much longer for recovery and readiness to sport. So what can you as a regular sports enthusiast do to enjoy life as pain-free as possible and save visits to physical therapists, orthopedists, and surgeons?
