What do we know about magnesium?



What do we know about magnesium?

The body can not produce magnesium and must be taken daily with food. Research, however, suggests that the supply of magnesium is often not sufficient.

In the body of an adult man, the average weight of about 70 kg, is about 20 grams of magnesium, of which about 65% is stored in the bones and teeth, and the rest distributed between blood, body fluids, organs and other tissues.

Magnesium is important for human life material. It is required for the normal functioning of the heart, nerves and muscles, and also participates in the activation of over 300 enzymes that ensure the smooth flow of many metabolic processes. It is absorbed in the small intestine, in which a beneficial effect of vitamin D. The regulator’s total content in the body are the kidneys, and the reserves are located in the bones.

The body can not produce magnesium and need everyday intake through food – daily needs for magnesium are about 300 to 400 mg. Studies confirm that the provision of these extremely important mineral is often not enough.

Symptoms of magnesium deficiency in the body as irritability, depression, anxiety, impaired memory, muscle tremors, convulsions, nausea, vomiting etc.. This may occur because of reduced input (unbalanced diet, foods poor in magnesium), increased excretion (alcoholism, abuse of laxatives , diuretics or digitalis), lower utilization of magnesium intake due to some digestive diseases, changed eating habits ..

Of course we increased need for magnesium, with poor compensation, also causing a shortage. And the increased need for magnesium are the elderly, heart patients, people exposed to increased physical and mental efforts zobg stressful and demanding job, athletes, diabetics, young people in the development and pregnant and lactating women.

Because it is involved in many processes in the body, this mineral can be applied in a variety of disorders that are covered in three major indicator groups: gynecology (with dysmenorrhea, PMS, pregnancy, lactation), cardiology (chronic heart patients, arrhythmias , elevated blood pressure) and tetanic syndrome (calf cramps, muscle tension, spasms in the digestive system, migraine).

Magnesium and plants

Magnesium is also an essential element of the natural world as it plays a crucial role in maintaining the freshness of green forests, grasslands and all other green plants. Paint is, in fact, owe the pigment chlorophyll, the chemical complex compound, which in the middle of its molecule contains magnesium. Although at first glance unexpected pigment in leaves – chlorophyll pigment in red blood cells – hemoglobin, are similar in chemical structure.

The main difference is that the hemoglobin in their structure as a central atom contains iron atoms, and in chlorophyll is magnesium atom. Magnesium participates in the construction of the cell wall and is important as an enzyme activator.

How to calculate how many calories we need?



How to calculate how many calories we need?

This article explains how to calculate the number of calories you need daily, whether you are at mass, definition, or to maintain a healthy weight.

To be able to calculate how many calories you need, you need two pieces of data.

The first is your basal metabolic rate (BMR, Basal Metabolic Rate) or a number that tells how your body consumes calories a day while at rest. BMR can be calculated using the following formula:

For men:
BMR = 66 + (13.7 * weight in kg.) + (5 * height in inches.) – (6.76 * year)

For women:
BMR = 655 + (9.6 * weight in kg.) + (1.8 * height in inches.) – (4.7 * years)

The second parameter is the amount of energy consumed by your physical activity (TDEE, Total Daily Energy Expenditure). Approximate value is calculated Lightest by choosing from the following list:

Most days you spend sitting (eg. No training with office systems):
Daily amount of calories to maintain weight = BMR * 1.2

Few active (eg. Light intensity exercise 1-3 times a week):
Daily amount of calories to maintain weight = BMR * 1.375

Moderately active (eg. Exercising 3-5 times a week, moderate intensity):
Daily amount of calories to maintain weight = BMR * 1.55

Active (eg. High intensity training 6-7 times a week):
Daily amount of calories to maintain weight = BMR * 1.725

Extremely active (eg. Daily exercise high intensity twice a day):
Daily amount of calories to maintain weight = BMR * 1.9

How many calories enter the weight?

When you’re at the weight you simply have to enter more than you spend, that is the figure calculated before you add 250 to 500 more calories.

How many calories enter the definition?

The daily amount of calories to maintain subtract 200 to 600 calories to start spending the energy stored in the fatty deposits. More than that is not healthy because except you will not have long-term consumption can harm the metabolism and health in general.

Arnold Schwarzenegger | The secret of perfect biceps!

The secret of perfect biceps


Arnold Schwarzenegger Biceps ie GUNS as they were called at that time are probably best known in human history, and rightly so. The scope of the hand that was almost 56 cm was not only the largest at that time (late 60s to mid-70s), but had the most ideal form of that era. Arnold kept to two things: simplicity and brutality. Worked exercises in building of large mass and isolation exercises for biceps.

Arnold’s favorite exercise for the biceps and the mass of the first small muscle was Cheating barbell curls ie cheating standing biceps curl with rods. This mode is used even when he was a teenager. “Cheating on a standing curl is only an exercise in mass,” one said when asked. He also loved to work and biceps curl with a dumbbell incline bench at 45 degrees to ensure the maximum extension of the biceps for maximum effect.

Shock your muscles to make a great. Arnold has always believed that the body is incredibly adaptable and can be used on the same load. He knew that even if training at a very high level of intensity will cause any new gains if everything is done the same way, with the same routines every day. Arnold was advised to “shock” the hand of all the tricks: add weight, add reps and sets, speeding up the training and reduction of rest, do new exercises even invent it.

The perfect technique. To completely isolate the biceps muscle when it comes to the crease, Arnold would advise beginners to perform the movement with his back against the wall. He believed in this movement only hands need to work and that any other muscle if you join in isolating the biceps negated this effect. He also worked rotating movement of the longest range of motion. “When you work rotation must bring your arms straight up to the shoulder. If you change the line millimeter, internally or externally, taking stress off the biceps and you will not get the same results.” Arni said.

FOCUS. Be concentrated on each repetition of each set is something that Arnold was the most important! When he practiced and was maximum skocentrisan unilateral Nothing could interrupt or distract. The head had a vision of how the body wants to have and believed that this simply means thinking favors to grow more muscle. “In my mind I saw his biceps as mountains, unbelievably great, and I imagined lifting huge amounts of weights with the superhuman muscle mass” was one of Arnold’s famous sentence.

One of the famous statement of the legendary Arnold was “Put your mind into the muscle because the power of the mind can not be underestimated.” In today’s era of the great Kai Green in the power of the mind is the most important thing in bodybuilding.
