Join the treadmill guys at the gym -- more fun than pills. ...Read more

He dropped dead while referreing basket ball, so he obviously was not healthy. Body chemistry is maintained by good diet, the fuel that cells have to burn in order to furnish the required energy for their function. ...Read more
Consistency, For One: Use proper form (always), allow for adequate recovery time (rest), do only what you enjoy (makes consistency easier), vary your routines (prevents adaptation and promotes growth), eat several (5) clean, balanced meals throughout the day, drink as much h2o as you can, begin your day with a large dose of protein (if not medically contraindicated), manage and minimize your stress.
