As if it isn’t enough that we need to exercise to stay healthy, did you know that exercising at home can actually be dangerous if not done properly? You won’t have a trainer watching and guiding you, and you’re on your own to figure out any equipment you may be using. Well, it doesn’t have to be dangerous, as long as you can follow some basic, simple rules which will allow you to have a safe, even enjoyable, exercise program in your own home.

  • The most important thing to remember is to always make sure you’re doing proper stretches before starting your exercise program. Stretching your muscles before exercising warms them up and prevents them pulling and tearing.
  • If you’re just starting out, make sure you start with a short exercise routine. The worst thing you can do is overdo it, and exercise too much. You can injure your muscles, because they just aren’t used to it yet. You can slowly increase your exercise over time, as your muscles adjust. It’s very important to get your body used to doing exercises of any kind before taking it up a level.
  • Slowly increase your speed and endurance. Never try doing any more than you can physically do. You need to know your limits, and stick with them. Lifting 300 pound weights when you only weigh 150 pounds right off the bat, is not only a bad idea, but dangerous as well!
  • If you’re using any kind of exercise equipment, make sure that it’s in good condition and that you know how to use it properly. It’s obviously not a good idea to exercise with faulty equipment, which can break and cause major injuries. Not only that, if you don’t know how to use the equipment properly, you can be putting yourself at risk for injury as well.
  • If you’re lifting weights, it’s never a good idea to bench press alone. Even if you’re doing lighter weights than you have done before, you never know when the bar can become too heavy for you to lift back up. If it comes down onto your chest or neck area, you could have your air circulation blocked off. Obviously this can be extremely dangerous and even fatal, so always make sure to get someone to come and spot you when doing any bench presses.
  • As you’re doing your exercises, pay attention to your body. If you ever start feeling any pain, stop immediately and take care of the pain. Go to a doctor if necessary. Never continue with your exercises, thinking you can “work through the pain.” Just stop, and take care of your injury.
  • Wear comfortable shoes if you’re planning on doing any walking or running exercises. A cheap, low quality pair of shoes will only make your feet hurt, and discourage you from completing your workout. Not only that, but they can even cause you to injure muscles as well, so go for the good quality shoes that are comfortable on your feet.

Following these simple steps can help ensure that you have a safe work out at home. Take it easy, and listen to what your body is trying to tell you. You can exercise freely, without risk of injury, so long as you’re willing to take the steps needed to be safe.

When learning to play tennis, only the basic equipment needs to be purchased. You can purchase a complete outfit made by any major manufacturer of sporting goods. These include Nike, Adidas, Prince, Wilson, Head, and there still many more out there selling good products. Players can move on to more expensive styles in racquets and clothes after their tennis training has been completed or when you start to play some of the local tennis leagues. The salesmen at a sports equipment outlet will be a good guide to make sure they have everything they need.

 

Tennis apparel is athletic wear, so function is key. You’ll be running much of the time when you play tennis, so choose shorts or warm up pants that won’t bunch up and limit your mobility. Running shorts might be a good choice if you aren’t buying tennis-specific apparel. Make sure your clothing is snug around your waist. If it’s too tight, you’ll have problems when you turn your core on serves and groundstrokes. If it’s too lose, it might start slipping when you run and jump.

Take time to go out and shop around for your outfit. If you do not have a lot of spare time or you hate to think about spending time at the mall on your day off, look on the internet. Online stores are great source for those who are looking for new tennis clothes.

Playing tennis is all about sudden starts and stops, as well as moving quickly from side to side. The trouble is that, during extreme stopping, cornering, and pivoting, if the sneaker’s outsole is too rigid, the tennis player loses contact with the playing surface, which results in a loss of footing. That is why you need proper pair of tennis shoes. Nike, Adidas, Sergio Tacchini or Lacoste are market best sellers these days.

What about tennis rackets? Choosing racket is most important thing in tennis world. When it comes to buying one you can consult your tennis coach or tennis racket expert for advice on the brand of racket that is most likely to fit specific requirements. Testing out different brands is the best way to find the right match. Popular brands are Babolat, Dunlop, Fischer, Avery, Gamma, Head, Prince, Volkl and Wilson. Length and racket weight are the most important when choosing.

Most tennis rackets weigh between 8.5 and 12.5 ounces. In general, lighter rackets are easier to swing. The standard tennis racket length is 27 inches. While the rules of tennis allow rackets to measure up to 32 inches, most tennis rackets measure from 27 to 28 inches. Because the grip is the tennis player’s link between the tennis racket and player body, grip comfort is of great importance. Grips typically range from 4 inches to 4 7/8 inches in circumference. Most adult tennis players use grips between 4 1/4 inches and 4 5/8 inches.

What could you think about winter?

Overcoats? Christmas? or Snow?

Today, I want to introduce a famous sport in winter. It is “ski”.

First, what should we prepare before we ski?

Skis

All skis have four basic measures that define their basic performance: length, width, sidecut and camber. So it is very important to choose a suitable skis.

Ski Boots

Ski boots are specialized footwear that are used in skiing to provide a way to attach the skier to skis using ski bindings. The ski/boot/binding combination is used to effectively transmit control inputs from the skier’s legs to the snow.

Ski Poles

Now, composite ski poles are much lighter and stronger than aluminum poles, though aluminum poles are still one of the main types of ski pole on the market.

Ski Clothing

The best ski clothing will allow optimal movement, look great, and keep you warm. Skiing base layer clothing should be lightweight and tight fitting to keep your body heat in and sweat out.

Ski Gloves

Ski gloves are an important part of your ski wardrobe, and unless you want cold hands, they can’t be overlooked as a non-important accessory. After all, a pair of well-fitting, warm ski gloves or ski mittens can make your ski day a lot better! Here is a selection of some of the best men’s ski gloves and ski mittens.

Ski Goggles

Although you may not realize it due to the cold temperatures, the sun is extremely strong on the mountain. Bright snow reflects the sunlight, and higher altitudes means the sun’s UV rays are ultra-powerful. Protect your eyes and increase your visibility by wearing ski goggles. Polarized lenses are especially helpful in reducing glare.

Here is more information about skiing.
