It's been summer for a while now so it is high time that you finally start AND FINISH a fitness challenge. This one is easy - its two weeks, it starts slow and builds up, and you'll have a super-fit core by the end of it. What are you waiting for?! Clip it if you're ready to take the challenge :) The V Crunch Lie on your back, and lift your legs and arms up so they are extended toward the ceiling. Lift your upper back off the floor, reaching your hands toward your feet. Lower your legs toward the floor while reaching your arms overhead, keeping your shoulders off the mat and lower back pressed into the mat. Repeat the crunch motion to complete one rep. Runner's Crunch Start on your back with your elbows resting on the floor at a 90-degree angle. With your core engaged, roll up to almost sitting while bringing your right knee up to meet your left elbow. It should feel a little like running. With control, straighten your leg as your slowly peel your back down, vertebra by vertebra, until your shoulders touch the mat last. Alternate with your other leg to complete one rep. Reverse Crunch Lying on your back, lift your legs in the air with your knees bent. Place your hands on the floor beside you. Without momentum, use your lower abs to slowly curl the hips off the floor and into your chest. Slowly lower them back to the starting position. This counts as one rep. Diamond Sit-Up Lie on your back and open your legs into a diamond shape (aka butterfly legs), with the soles of your feet pressed together and knees out wide. Extend the arms overhead. Inhale to curl the torso up, and tap the floor in front of your feet to stretch your glutes a bit. Slowly lower back to the starting position. This counts as one rep. Bicycle Crunch Lie flat on the floor with your lower back pressed to the ground.With your hands behind your head, bring your knees toward your chest and lift your upper back until your shoulder blades off the mat. Be sure not to pull on your neck. Straighten your right leg out to about a 45-degree angle to the ground while turning your upper body to the left, bringing your right elbow toward the left knee. Make sure your rib cage is moving and not just your elbows. Switch sides, and do the same motion on the other side to complete one rep End by doing Sphinx pose to stretch out the abs. Come onto your belly with your legs behind you. Place your forearms on the mat so your elbows are directly underneath your shoulders. Keep the hips resting on the floor as you gently press your chest away from your hands. Actively roll your shoulders away from your ears, elongating the neck. Gaze in front of you or lower your head back between your shoulder blades to deepen the stretch. Hold for five breaths and then exhale as you release your belly to the mat.
Tone Your Inner Thighs with This Workout
It's time to get the legs you want. The inner thighs are every girl's nightmare area, and in this season of swimsuits and short and summer dresses, there is no way to hide them. Luckily, there are some steps you can take to thin and strengthen those legs to make them exactly what you want. So grab some weights, an exercise ball, and a water bottle and let's get ready for this summer. Ball Leg Lifts Lie on your side on the floor with your arms crossed in front of your body. If this is uncomfortable, bend your bottom elbow and rest your head on your hand. Place a large exercise ball in between your feet, and slowly lift the ball up toward the ceiling using only your hips and butt. Return to the start position. This counts as one repetition. Complete three sets of 15 reps. Glider Side Lunge Stand with your feet a few inches apart, with your right foot on the plastic lid. Make a fist with one hand and cup your other hand over it. Keep your hands in front of your chest throughout the exercise to help you stay balanced. Put weight into your left leg, and as you slowly bend your left knee and squat down, slide your right foot out to the side. Then as you slowly straighten your leg, slide the right foot back in. Most of your weight remains in the leg that's not moving. Complete three sets of 10 reps with each leg. Sumo Squat With Side-Arm Raises Stand with legs wide and toes pointed outward slightly. Hold a pair of dumbbells in your hands with your arms straight and your palms facing down. Bend your knees until your knees are over your ankles while raising your arms to just below shoulder height. Arms should be in line with your legs — you should see the weights in your peripheral vision.Straighten your legs and lower your arms simultaneously. Complete three sets of 15 reps. Pilates Inner-Thigh Leg Lifts Lying on your side, lengthen your bottom leg and cross your top leg over it. Rest either your knee or foot on the floor. Prop your head up with your hand, or rest your head on your arm. As you exhale, lift your bottom leg up, and inhale as you lower it back down. Your torso should stay still while you do this. Do 10 reps, then repeat on the other side. Gate Swings With Cross Start with your feet in a wide, second-position stance with your toes pointed slightly outward. Bend your knees and lower into a squat, using your hands to help push your knees wide apart to deepen the inner-thigh stretch. Push off your knees to get leverage, and jump your right leg in front of your left, landing in a standing cross-legged stance.Immediately jump your legs back out to a wide squat with your hands at your knees. Push off your knees and jump your legs together, crossing your left leg in front of your right. Repeat as many times as possible for at least 40 seconds. Narrow Squat With Overhead Press Begin standing with your legs together, arms raised to shoulder height with elbows bent, holding weights by your ears. Squat toward the floor by bending your knees and reaching your bum backward, as if you were sitting in a chair. Keep your legs squeezing together. Focus your weight into your heels. While squatting, raise your arms overhead into a parallel position. Return to starting position by pressing through your heels while bending your elbows to lower the weights back to shoulder level. Do 15 reps for one set. Do three sets. Scissor Jacks Stand with your feet shoulder width apart, and extend your arms straight out to either side with palms facing down. This is the starting position. Jump, and cross your right arm over your left and your right foot over your left. Jump back to the starting position, then cross with the opposite arm and foot. This counts as one rep. Continue alternating sides and repeating this movement until you complete 25 reps. Be sure to keep up the pace and not allow too much time for recovery between jumps; this way you'll be sure to keep up your heart rate and engage your whole body.

Why vitamins and minerals form an essential part of our diet
Vitamin and minerals both are important nutrients for the body as they perform lots of activities to keep you healthy. There is a borderline for the requirements you need to follow for these nutrients and if you cross the line, then they might be harmful to the body. Nothing is better than having a healthy diet in your lifestyle that provides you enough nutrients required for the body. Each and every day, your body generates skin, muscles, and bones. It also produces red rich blood that carries nutrients and oxygen to the entire body and sends nerve signals to the brain and muscles. It also prepares chemical messengers that run from one organ to another creating instructions that help to comfort your life. To perform all these functions, your body indefinitely requires nutrients. These nutrients can include various types of vitamins and minerals which your body cannot manufacture itself. Understanding all the benefits of vitamins and minerals can be quite confusing. So you can read articles, magazines, nutritional books that can aid you with all the information you need about vitamin and mineral. Vitamins and minerals are also known as micronutrients of the body because your body required a few quantities of them. Even lacking in these small nutrients can lead to a major disease. The following are some of the major diseases due to the lack of these micronutrients. 1. Scurvy- Long time ago, when sailors used to sail on the ship without eating fresh fruits for many days’, their bodies would experience a deficiency in vitamins and minerals which caused bleeding of the gums. 2. Blindness- In many foreign countries, it is observed that many people turn blind due to the deficiency in vitamin A. 3. Rickets- It is nothing but a condition where your bone becomes week and soft leading to skeletal deformities such as bowed legs. It is caused due to the lack of vitamin D. Just as a lack of some micronutrients can lead to some disease, having a minerals rich diet can give you some health benefits such as 1. Strong bone- Bones are the combination of calcium, collagen, vitamin B, vitamin K, and magnesium, phosphorus. Having these nutrients in your diet can save you from bone fractures by strengthening the bone. 2. Prevent birth Defects-Having folic supplements or multivitamin supplements for the women at the time of pregnancy can protect the child from the brain and spinal birth damage. 3. Healthy teeth- Like bones, teeth too are made up of calcium, mineral fluoride, which helps prevent teeth cavities. There is a different category of vitamins known as a water-soluble vitamin. These vitamins are mostly found in the watery portions of the food we eat. They are directly absorbed in the bloodstream when the food is broken down during the digestion process or when the supplement is dissolved. So if you are not getting enough vitamins from your diet then you can take vitamin supplements that are easily available in the vitamin supplement store. As 70% of our body consists of water, vitamins easily get circulated in the body. Some of the water-soluble vitamins are biotin, folic acid, niacin, pantothenic acid, thiamin, riboflavin acid, vitamin B6, and B12. Although water-soluble vitamins have to perform various tasks in the body, one of the important things they perform is to release the energy found in the food you eat. Other vitamins aid in keeping the tissues healthy. You can also consume AOR advanced B-complex for vitamin B. The following are the functions that different vitamins perform: 1. Helps in releasing energy- Many vitamin Bs form the main parts of coenzymes, which are the molecules that help the enzymes to release the energy. 2. Production of energy- Thiamin, riboflavin, niacin is the nutrients engaged in the production of the energy. 3. Building protein and cells- Vitamins B6, B12, and folic acids are responsible for metabolizing the amino acids and helps in multiplying the cells. 4. Creating Collagen-One of the important roles of vitamin C is to create collagen that helps in repairing wounds, support blood vessels, etc. Although hard to believe, some of the water-soluble vitamins can stay in the body for a longer period of time. Folic acids and vitamin C and stay in your body for more than 2 days. However, these vitamins should be refilled in the body every few days. You must be aware that consuming a high amount of these nutrients in the body can prove to be harmful. For example, consuming heavy doses of vitamin B6 several times can damage the nerves causing numbness and weak muscle. Just like water-soluble vitamins, there are fat-soluble vitamins. Rather than directly getting absorbed in the bloodstream, these vitamins enter the blood through lymph channels located in the intestine walls. Many fat-soluble vitamins can travel the entire body only when protected by the proteins as their carriers.
