The Body Mass Index is the most used measurement to classify Bodyweight conditions. It is a useful tool to screen the general population, but it fails to differentiate fat mass from lean body mass. Using BMI, for heavy athletes or bodybuilders with a large amount of muscle mass can mistakenly fall withing moderate- to high-risk categories.
BMIClassification < 18.5 underweight 18.5–24.9 normal weight 25.0–29.9 overweight 30.0–34.9 class I obesity 35.0–39.9 class II obesity ≥ 40.0 class III obesity
>25 has shown an increased disease risk for type 2 diabetes, hypertension, and CVD

The FHILL longitudinal study shows that a higher legume intake is the most protective dietary predictor of survival amongst the elderly, regardless of their ethnicity. […] Legumes have been associated with long-lived food cultures such as the Japanese (soy, tofu, natto, miso), the Swedes (brown beans, peas), and the Mediterranean people (lentils, chickpeas, white beans).

The Active Lunch Break (ALB) is a short but effective form of exercise at work. With a professional “Koach” 1-2 times per week, your team will get mobilized, participate in moderate stretching, strengthening, and mental activity for a successful work-life balance.
After these exercises and a healthy lunch, your team will be recharged at the end of the break. Everybody can stay in their work clothes and we will avoid getting sweaty.

Maria was looking for a sport to replace her daily bike ride. The fact that she can´t bear weight on her leg brought us into the pool at the Rec Center in Truckee. With her motivation and my experience, we can train for 40 min.
As our first training day after the accident, we finished our workout with push-ups. Maria can´t bear weight on her left leg, so she has to balance entirely on one leg, which becomes quite exhausting.
We’re happy to be able to start this training. Even though we can´t train the broken leg, it will benefit from the other exercises. Meanwhile, we’ll work on the mobility of the broken leg with a resistant band.

After the one leg squat, we moved on to the BUTTERFLY REVERSE OVERHEAD. That’s a great exercise to train your upper back and shoulder strength. Moreover, you will improve your mobility in your shoulders.
