THREE

CORE

MUSCLE

EXERCISES

There are so many different workouts and exercises out there today, it can be overwhelming.  That’s why we put together a program to compound movements that work large amounts of muscle fibers at one time.  These are our three core exercises and we share them with you.  We also feature Fuete Men fitness model Hyam Perez in our photo series. View his photo gallery below.

Bench Press:  When it comes to building upper body muscle, nothing can come close to the bench press.  Nearly every upper body muscle including your chest, triceps, lats, biceps, and shoulders are involved.

Squat:  Nothing comes close to building total body muscle like the squat. It recruits muscles from you quads, hamstrings, glutes, hips, and back.  It also provides a strong core workout for your abs.

Deadlift:  The deadlift is one of the scariest exercises that you hear about in the media, but if you use proper form, you will see the benefits. Properly executed, the deadlift will allow you to build a stronger posterior chain, less fragile joints, and a body that can handle whatever life throws at you.

SIX FOODS FOR

YOUR HEART

Can the contents of your kitchen seriously save your life? A growing body of research suggests that what you eat and drink can protect your body against myriad health woes—and studies have shown that up to 70% of heart disease cases are preventable with the right food choices.

Salmon -- Broiled, grilled or baked, this tasty fish is filled with omega-3 fatty acids that improve the metabolic markers for heart disease. It also has rich levels of selenium; an antioxidant that studies have shown boosts cardiovascular protection.


Walnuts-- This nut is full of omega-3 fatty acids, fiber, Vitamin E, and folate; all of which promote healthy hearts. It's also high in polyunsaturated fats.


Dark Chocolate – Make sure it contains at least 70 percent cocoa, which has been linked to lower blood pressure, because its flavonols relax arteries, and increased blood flow. Make sure it doesn't contain saturated fats from additives such as palm oil.


Oranges -- Another source of pectin, this fruit is also packed with a flavaonoid that lowers blood pressure and reduces artery inflammation. Citrus also contains hesperidin, a plant chemical that improves blood flow to the heart, and vitamin C, a potent protector against stroke.
Broccoli - This green vegetable is low in cholesterol, high in fiber, and contains a wealth of antioxidants.


Soy Milk - It's high in the organic compound isoflavones, which has been shown to help reduce cholesterol. Unlike animal milk, this beverage contains no cholesterol and is naturally low in fat. In also contains niacin, which helps boost circulation.
