What makes BRAVADA’s Women’s Activewear a superior moisture-wicking fabric?

3. Fabric has four times the filaments of the average yarn; these unique properties of OneFit™ draw moisture away from the skin and force the moisture to the surface by way of the millions of filaments. Once there, it rapidly evaporates, translating to a moisture-wicking, fast drying fabric.

Advantages:

1. Draws moisture away
2. Keeps fabric lightweight
3. Natural wicking (no chemical treatment necessary)
4. Dry comfort
5. Millions of filaments make for a softer more comfortable Yarn

Women’s Workout and Exercise

Many women worry that if they start working out they will begin to look masculine like a professional female bodybuilder, the reality is that woman simply do not produce enough testosterone to build big and bulky muscles. Women who do have the big masculine look have taken significant amounts of steroids usually combined with growth hormone. It is impossible for the average women to grow any significant muscular size. For women, weight lifting will give you an athletic, healthy and physically attractive body.

Five Fitness Components

A woman's exercise and workout plan should include exercises for cardiovascular conditioning as well as weight training. There are five components of physical fitness those being: cardiovascular endurance, muscle strength, muscular endurance, flexibility and body composition. These five components can all be worked on by developing a balanced program of weight training, proper diet and cardiovascular training conditioning that works for you. You have to do a program for yourself that keeps you inspire and that turns into actual lifestyle changes and not just a temporary get fit program. Remember, its all about getting excited about being you so get started!!

What to Include

Your program should include exercises that work every major muscle group: legs, including quadriceps, hamstrings and calves; chest; back; shoulders; arms; and your core (the abdominals, lower back and glutes). The core is probably the most important muscle groups because it is the "fulcrum" of the body that provides stability, leverage and strength for any physical confidence and agility.

Balance

Women tend to find that in the early stages of a fitness program they are able to increase the weight they lift with their legs, while their arms are much more difficult to train. The opposite is generally true for men. This is because the female body is designed for childbearing and carrying heavy loads for long periods of time. For this reason, many trainers find it best to focus weight training on the upper body for females and allow a vigorous cardio routine to suffice for much of the leg workout.

Cardiovascular

Cardiovascular exercise is important for an overall female fitness routine because it helps burn fat and creates a leaner silhouette as well as strengthening the heart and lungs. BodyBuild.com points out that the "best female bodybuilding workout is one that is balanced and uses plenty of cardio. Women tend to carry fat easier than men, so cardio is essential." Biking, jogging and fitness walking are all good options for cardiovascular exercise. Swimming is a terrific overall body conditioning exercise.

Considerations

Weight training can be particularly beneficial for women because resistance exercises help increase bone density, which may in turn help prevent or slow the development of osteoporosis. It is important to make sure your doctor OK's any new weightlifting plan you wish to undertake so as to avoid injury.

Seven Health and Fitness Tips for Women

Our society is faced with an epidemic of obesity, and people need to become more in tune with their own health and fitness.

We all know that exercise is essential to living a healthy lifestyle. It's the best way to lose body fat, because exercise boosts the metabolism and encourages the body to burn excess calories. Physical exercise revs up your heart and gets your lungs pumping at their maximum capacity. You'll have healthier bones when you exercise, and you'll look good and feel great about yourself. Exercise gives you increased stamina, making it easier for you to keep up with life's busy pace.

The unfortunate reality is that, although nearly everyone is aware of the many benefits of fitness, many women ignore the facts and choose to do nothing. It's too easy to press the snooze button, take the elevator or drive to work. In our society of convenience, people are suffering with a lack of health and fitness.

The following tips can be helpful in reaching and maintaining your ideal body weight. The specific issues that women face, like a higher susceptibility to osteoporosis make health and fitness of particular interest to them. To maintain optimum health and keep your body strong, it is recommended that at least two of these tips be incorporated into all women's health and fitness routines:

1. Keep your Expectations Realistic and Commit to Yourself

Don't fret if you feel you are not doing enough or getting the results you want right away. It is about making an appointment with yourself everyday and making it a lifestyle change. Don't worry if you're not able to spend ten hours a week at the gym, do not place expectations on yourself that are impossible to keep. Its about one-step-at-a-time lifestyle changes. The important thing is that you are can committing yourself to improving your health and fitness, and stick to your program. If exercising twice a week at twenty minutes per session is your first step to your program, stick with it and gradually increase. This should be fun and results will come as your get excited about all the positive changes that start to come.

2. Focus on Your Success.

Concentrate on how good you feel about your new health and fitness regime. If weight loss is part of your plan, and you're struggling to meet your goal, don't beat yourself up about it. Focus on what you've done to this point, and use today as a new starting point. You've made a commitment to yourself, and that is your biggest success.

3. Put weights before cardio.

Many women begin their health and fitness routines with cardio exercises, and then follow it up with weight lifting. The disadvantage is that you may be missing out on a critical component of the routine, because you're spending all of your time with cardio. If this is a regular occurrence, the outcome can be disappointing despite countless hours at the gym. Reverse the order and perform weight training first. You'll likely see a more positive visible outcome.

4. Don't overdo it.

The average women's health and fitness regime requires a workout of no more than an hour at a time. Spending too much time at the gym or doing the same exercises over extended periods can become tedious and boring. By focusing on the exercises and narrowing your time frame, your workout sessions will be more fun and more efficient.

5. Keep an eye on your heart rate.

Women should work out at 75-85% of their maximum heart rate. When your heart rate is too low, it's a sign that you're not working to your full potential. Too high a rate, on the other hand, shows that you're pushing yourself to a potentially dangerous level. Sticking with a happy medium of 50% or so will not help you to realize your fitness goals. Keep a heart rate monitor on hand or do a manual count incrementally during your workout to ensure that you're reaching, but not exceeding, your ideal target heart rate.

6. Get support.

It's important to be involved in some sort of fitness social support web. If you are currently in a regime with no fitness community, you may find that your workouts are lacking or not that successful. A social support can bring a greater sense of camaraderie, kinship and even healthy competition. If you normally workout alone at home, try visiting a gym for a sample workout, or joining a yoga, Pilates or sailing class. Running clubs and golf courses are other ways to keep in shape and meet new people.

7. Be self-supportive.

It's tough to take on a new health and fitness routine. You need to have commitment and discipline, and you need to be prepared to work hard. Give yourself a pep talk. Don't pressure yourself too much. You deserve a pat on the back, so go ahead and give yourself one. Others give you great feedback, so why not you?

Women's health and fitness has become a bigger issue than ever before. Fast food and sedentary lifestyles are robbing women of their good health and stripping them of their self-esteem.It's up to you to make the change to a healthier lifestyle. Go at your own pace, and you'll be amazed at how far you can go.
