Summer is upon us and as such there is now more talk than ever before of some of the new trends that are coming down the pipes for men. The rugged, bearded, devil may care look is now out the window and a sleeker, more sophisticated style is set to take center stage. Model Matt Landis sure knows how to rock every one of these looks but how will they work for the average man? Here are four trends that every man should take a look at.
You might spend a lot of your time in the gym walking slowly on a treadmill or pushing a little on the elliptical. Unfortunately, a lot of people may be wasting their time with their workout without even knowing it. If you aren’t pushing your body hard enough during a workout, you aren’t getting what you can out of it and you may just be wasting your precious time. There are a couple of ways that you can know if you are pushing your body hard enough so that you are making the absolute most out of your exercise routine. This will allow you to know if you need to do more and push yourself harder at the same time.
One way to know if your workout is tough enough is if you’re sweating during it. If you never break a sweat, chances are pretty good that your workout is just not that great for you. You should also have an elevated pulse rate, meaning that your breath may be a little shorter and your heart is going to be beating while you’re working out. Once you are able to achieve this level of exercise intensity, you will find that you do better as a whole when working out. Fit people like Gianfrancesco Genoso understand that it’s important that you push yourself during a workout so that you know you are going to be getting the absolute most out of it.
Researchers did a jogging experiment in 2012 involving a number of joggers, for the reason that many who use those reported treadmills negatively. These joggers first ran on a track and then repeated the same run on a treadmill. The researchers allowed joggers to set the treadmill speed comparable to the speed they ran on the track prior. What the research found out was the joggers were setting the treadmill speed, lower than when they ran the track, maybe because there was no goal.
All these joggers felt that the run on the treadmill was more challenging which may be false. Researchers found out in 2014, that when a jogger runs on treadmills, it is decreasing the pressure on bones and joints as compare to hitting the bare ground running and this is a good issue.
In general, those who are going for frequent walks, like Paul Mathieson, found the outdoors more invigorating; giving them increased energy and less fatigue than exercising on a treadmill. Some feel that it is the ever-changing environment that the jogger meets when running outside versus an inside treadmill. The things that one sees, as they are running and the fresh air give them pleasure.
Walking or running on a treadmill inside offers no scenery to look at and no fresh air to breathe into the lungs. Walking outside the person must set a goal for when and where they end their walk. These same goals cannot be set when using a treadmill.
