The Stationary Bike Workout - The Next Level Up

Intermediate - Advance

This is part two or the more advance version of the stationary bike workout. Part one is for beginners. If you need to know how to do the exercises, I have videos listed on the stationary bike workout part 1.

If this is your first Tabata workout, it is 20 seconds of very hard exercise for 20 seconds with 10 seconds of rest. Tabatas are supposed to be 4 minutes long or eight cycles of 20 seconds work and 10 seconds rest. To understand the science behind the Tabata workout, read my post on this extreme form of cardiovascular exercise. 

Remember for this workout, you will need weights and of course your stationary bike. Don't let your bike sit in the corner of your basement or bedroom, get it out and try out the beginners or advance stationary bike workout. It is a total plan to help you increase your aerobic endurance and your strength fitness.

Equipment needed for the workout:
Exercise mat
Stationary bike

A Pear A Day Keeps the Cholesterol Away


You might know the old adage, an apple a day keeps the doctor away, well, the same can be said about pears. I have come up with a new quote, a pear a day keeps the cholesterol away.

Why is that? Pears are high in fiber that's why. Fiber or soluble fiber which is found in pears, binds with the cholesterol in the body and moves it out of the system so it won't be absorbed in the bloodstream. If you increase your daily fiber intake to 21-38 grams a day, you can decrease your cholesterol levels by 15-20 percent. Pears have as much fiber as steel cut oatmeal and if you combine the two, you would have one of the best ways of lowering your cholesterol next to taking statins(cholesterol lowering drugs).

Pears have become part of my new part-time vegan lifestyle. I have become a part-time vegan to lower my cholesterol. You can read about my journey on the following post: Lowering My Cholesterol As A Vegan. I wasn't a lover of pears and I only would eat them in a salad. Today was my first day eating a pear by itself and I must say it was delicious. I think it was a texture thing on why I didn't like them growing up. I guess I have grown out of my issue with the fruit.

What are the different types of pears

There are hundreds of varieties pears with different levels of fiber. Some are great for cooking while others are best eaten out of hand. The average pear has about 6 grams of fiber and the Asian pear has the highest amount of fiber among all pear varieties. It has 9 grams in a medium size fruit. Check out the different pears along with recipes you can try on USAPears.  

If you have high cholesterol and you are looking for a natural way to lower your cholesterol, considering eating a pear everyday. Do you eat pears and what is your favorite variety?

Getting Healthy With Groupon And Groupon Goods

This is a sponsored post but all opinions are mine.

Summer is winding down and the kids are going back to school and your "me" time can start now. If you spent too much money on buying back to school items or you are short on funds, you should consider checking out what Groupon has to offer to get your fitness and wellness life back on track.

There is more than just fitness class deals

When you are looking to get in shape, Groupon has an abundance of specials on classes. There is a whole spectrum to choose from, from yoga to Cross-Fit, Zumba, Pilates, Spinning and etc. However, Groupon offers more if you are looking for other health options. Did you know that under the health and fitness category, you can find deals for the following:

Natural Medicine
Weight Loss

Groupon Goods

There are some people who prefer to workout at home and need fitness equipment or they need to replace worn out fitness gear. They should check out Groupon Goods. Groupon Goods offers deals on fitness equipment, electronics, designer brands and everyday household items. You don't even have to worry about receiving your products, Groupon delivers them right to your home or office. 

One of my clients is looking for a new recumbent bike and I have to tell him about what I found on Groupon Goods.

ProForm 4.0 RT Recumbent Bike  Discount - 25% off
HealthRider Recumbent Bike   Discount - 40% off
Gold's Gym Cycle Trainer 400 Ri Exercise Bike  Discount - 15% off
Epic A17R Recumbent Stationary Bike   Discount - 25% off

I need athletic shoes for not working out but when I'm training my clients. I want something a little more stylish and I found a shoe called JSport by Jambu. They are too cute and they just might be coming to my home real soon. If you purchase goods over $34.00 then shipping is free and if the product doesn't work out for you, you can return it for free as long as the purchase was over $34.00.

As you can see, Groupon has evolved from just a service company to a company that offers Groupon Coupons and Groupon Goods. Check them out the next time you go shopping online and remember the holidays are just around the corner.
