SHOULDER and ARM day Until not too many years ago, talking about arm and shoulder training for women seemed a taboo topic. Women used to exercise their glutes and legs with great intensity, also their waists and a little bit of chest, limiting themselves, that is, to a few sets of flyes performed at very low intensity.

Competitions in Fitness-related sports currently group more women than men. Therefore, shoulders and arm workouts [...]

If we don’t put effort into trying to modify these thought patterns, we will continue to generate the same situations and bad feelings. Negative emotions imply lack of adequate behavioural choices and the presence of limited mental schemes. Negative emotions are obstacles in the way of our self-realization [...]
Food of the month: OCTOPUS A FOOD BOTH DELICIOUS AND NUTRITIOUSThe octopus is a boneless sea animal known as the chameleon of the ocean due to its ability to change shape and colour.
